(Runes, #1)
By Ednah Walters
Release date - 8th June 2013
Published by - Firetail Publishing

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

Here's a little interview with a certain delicious hottie, Torin. Enjoy! ^_^

Interview with Torin St. James

The powerful sound of a twin engine grows closer. Stacey is a nervous wreck, you know, like that reporter in Interview with a Vampire, except her guest is not a vampire or he wouldn’t be riding a Harley in broad daylight. She walks to the window, lifts the corner of the curtain and peers outside. A sigh of relief escapes her when she sees he is not alone. He removes the helmet from his girlfriend’s head, her dark hair tumbling to her shoulder. He says something, causing her to playfully punch him in the stomach then grabs his T-shirt and pulls him closer. He drops the helmet on the seat, cups her face and they kiss. Yowza. Stacey fans herself. Even her neighbor from across the street stops watering her garden to watch. Afraid they’ll see her, Stacey lets the curtain drop and runs to her bedroom to make sure she’s presentable. It was the tenth time she found herself doing that.

When the knock comes, Stacey runs and yanks the door open: Welcome to my home, Torin and… Where’s Raine?

Torin (grins): She’s gone.

Stacey frowns, checks the curb and finds it empty: Oh. Please, come in and have a seat. Would you like something to drink? Tea? I know you English love tea?

Torin: No, I’m good, but thanks. It’s been a while since I considered myself an Englishman.

Stacey moves back to give him room. He’s tall with shaggy black hair and the most brilliant blue eyes she’s ever seen. He waits for her to sit then takes the chair across from hers.

STACEY: You let Raine ride your Harley?

Torin shrugs: Yeah. She’s learning to control her speed and I like it because I get to be the passenger. *grin turns wicked*

STACEY (laughs , imagining having him behind her with his arms around her waist): Do you ever distract her?

Torin (blue eyes widen as he gives her an innocent smile): No. Not intentionally, but she insists I do it anyway. So what did you want to ask me? She’ll be back in thirty minutes.

STACEY (runs a gaze over his black jeans, blue shirt that makes his eyes pop, leather jacket and canvas shoes): Okay. You look like a nineteen year old. How old are you really?

Torin (makes a face): Nineteen? Really? I need to change how I dress.

STACEY: Okay, early twenties. But seriously, how old are you?

Torin: I stopped counting after eight centuries.

STACEY: Since you’ve lived that long, what changes have you seen over the years that bugs you?

Torin: The appreciation of a woman’s lushness. Matchstick bodies don’t do anything to me. Now curves (he runs a heated gaze over her body and gives her a slow grin), there’s so much a man can do with a curvaceous woman.

STACEY(blushes): What changes please you?

Torin: I’m a biker and I love the strides humans have made creating motorcycles. I can’t wait for hover-bikes. I can definitely see myself riding one fifty or a hundred years from now.

STACEY (sighs, wishing she could be Immortal): What does the name Torin mean?

Torin (chuckles): In Gaelic, it means chief or thunder and is associated with Thor, the God of Thunder. To the Scots it means craggy hilltop.

STACEY: How much pride do you take in your appearance?

Torin (shrugs): I don’t really think about it. I work out and stay healthy.

STACEY: Come on, Torin. Are you saying you don’t mind girls drooling over your hot bod?

Torin (grins): No, I only care about one girl drooling over my hot bod or touching it or...

STACEY (grins back): I’m sure she likes you drooling over hers too.

Torin: I don’t drool.

STACEY (laughing): Yeah, right. Do you have any scars, tattoos, or piercings??

Torin (stands and lifts his shirt and shows her faint scars on his chest): These are special.

STACEY (tries not to drool over the washboard abs): Why?

Torin: I got them during the crusade when I fought alongside my brother James.

STACEY: What is your preferred clothing?

Torin: Casual… Jeans and T-shirts suit are fine, but I don’t have a problem with dressing up or taking everything off *grins naughtily*
The sound of a Harley reached them from afar.

STACEY: What is your preferred style of clothing in the opposite sex?

Torin (stares into space with nostalgic expression): There’s so much to be said about nudity, but I’m waiting for Raine. Other than that, I’d say dresses. When I was young, women took extra care with what they wore. I love it when Raine wears a dress. She’s breathtaking. On the other hand, I prefer her with very little on.

STACEY (laughs): Can I tell her you said that?

Torin (stands up, chuckling): She already knows it.
The sound of the engine revving reaches them and Stacey stands too.

Torin (shakes Stacey’s hand). Thanks for having me. Am I allowed to kiss you? Just on the cheek?

STACEY: My hubby might start World War Three if you kiss me anywhere else.

Torin (laughs, drops a kiss on her cheek): Then I’d better go. I hope we meet again, Stacey.



*fans face* Wasn't that fun? Phew... I know I had loads of fun lol ^_^
