Introducing Sophis, the heroine of Masquerade
Today, I want to talk a little about the heroine of the book, Sophis. The first things that came to me for Masquerade, the tenth book in my Vampires Realm series, were the hero and heroine. They came with a story to tell and I listened. The plot grew from their pasts and their feelings, centred on them rather than the other way around.
Sophis isn’t your typical strong heroine. She has a tough life and I think that shows in the way she approaches things and her feelings throughout the book. Some might think she’s led a privileged life as a vampire. Her sire is one of the elite in her bloodline, and she lived a life of comfort prior to her decision to enter the guard, much to his disgust. She’s fought convention since becoming a vampire. Her sire would prefer she traveled around Europe with him rather than dedicate herself to protecting her bloodline. Many in the bloodline look down upon female guards. And certain males have come to the conclusion that she doesn’t deserve her rank of captain and want her removed from the guard completely. Sophis fights every step of the way for what she wants. She’s strong in heart and character, but she has her weaknesses too. All heroines need weaknesses or they’re just not believable.

Born with powers similar to a vampire’s, Lilith has spent her life hunting demons for Section Seven. On the same night as she watches a vampire kill her best friend, she is faced with her worst nightmare—a client who is not only attractive but a vampire.
Lincoln is a powerful pureblood with a problem. He’s caught up in a prophecy and has little time left to unravel the mystery of the contract between his lord and the Devil before he dies. When witches foretell that a vampire hunter will save his life, he’s prepared to work with his most hated enemy, but he isn’t prepared for the forbidden desire he feels when he meets her.
Their mutual attraction becomes difficult to deny as they work together but when Lincoln reveals the truth about her powers, will Lilith find the strength to embrace a side of herself that she wished didn’t exist? And when they discover Lilith’s role in the prophecy, how far will Lincoln go to save her?
Dark, sensual and fast-paced, Seventh Circle is a story of forbidden love so strong that it will save the world.
