For Aurora, it was important that she was beautiful, but not in a classic, expected way. In the first book, we wanted her beauty to radiate from within. It was only once she left Ryferia in the second book, Queen of Destruction, that her external beauty would shine through.
When we saw this unknown girl… well, that’s when the story came alive for us. We gave this picture to the cover artist and she really captured the essence of our Princess Aurora.
Lord Jorah Thalyn, Dragon Shapeshifter Extraordinaire
And as for Jorah? Does it get any better than Chris Hemsworth? When we told our designer he was our inspiration for Jorah, she gave us this...
Even the poisoned garden froze in the presence of our icy dragon shifter.
Lord Raith Krall, Duke of Lorithian
Mention our gorgeous, tortured incubus Lord Raith Krall, Duke of Lorithian, and Erin and my minds flit to Jack Falahee.
“Damn!” Erin gasped when she saw him. “He’s hot. Is it bad that I want to keep this picture as my screensaver?”
Instead of having her drooling over a real person, (that would just be creepy) we had an artist turn Jack into Raith. Here he is, walking in Aurora’s poisoned garden.
Peckle, the Talking Cat
Peckle is unashamedly based on Lexie-Pex, our cranky, funny, sharp-clawed English farm cat. She treats our dog, a feisty Toy Pomeranian, exactly the way she treats Zandor and everyone else in the story: cuddles when she wants them. The rest of the time? Scornful disdain.
