Interview with Nancy Corrigan
Why did you write this book?
I love mythology and have always been fascinated with the Wild Hunt myth. If you don't know what it is, it's a spectral procession of horsemen and their hounds riding across the night sky. Many versions of the myth imply that it's a wild, uncontrolled force that kills everything in its path, but there are some versions, including the Welsh retelling that offers a different reason—the race to gather creatures that escaped from the Underworld. For me as a writer, I read that and my imagination went crazy. Soon after, the riders of the Wild Hunt series were born—wickedly hot horsemen who protect the humans from the atrocities of the Unseelie Court.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Paranormal/fantasy. They'll always be my favorite. I love the escape it offers. I lump the two genres together because sometimes it's hard to draw the line between them, especially when reading stories about faeries or other mythological creatures. The Wild Hunt series walks the line between paranormal and fantasy as it has demons, fairies, creatures of mythology and of course, the Huntsmen who have an alternate form they can shift into.
What is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own characters)?
The Vampire Lestat from Anne Rice's books. I love the depth she added to his character. Tortured, wicked and still I fell in love with him. The Vampire Chronicles were the first paranormal books I read and I became engrossed in the genre afterwards. I couldn't get enough. Still can't.
Do you enjoy films and/or TV shows? Which are your favorites?
I don't watch much TV, but I do enjoy movies. My tastes lean toward the action/adventure or horror ones. I need to be engaged or else I'm ready to head to the bathroom or to get more snacks. Some of my favorites include the Star Wars movies, Thor, the Lord of the Rings, and any classic slasher movie.
What are you working on at the moment, and what are we likely to see from you in the coming months?
Later this month, I'll be kicking off yet another series! Mist Unveiled will be book 1 of the Elemental Desire series. It's a mix of science, global warming and Norse mythology! I'll also be releasing a contemporary romance later this year.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Hunter Betrayed is book 1 of the Wild Hunt series. Reviewers have compared it to Larissa Ione's Lord of Deliverance series and Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series. Hunter Betrayed will kick off the series and trigger the event that'll set the riders of the Wild Hunt on a deadly race to save their souls and the world. Duty has been their constant companion for millions of years, but in the end it won't be enough when the future of the world is on their shoulders. It'll take a force much stronger than the discipline and stubbornness that have helped them survive the horrors of their past. It'll take the love to finally heal their broken souls.
Tainted from birth, Harley lives a life cloaked in darkness and temptation. She resists the lure of her evil legacy by holding the memory of her ghostly savior close. Every night without him is agony. She fantasizes about him and yearns for his body, but he's not the protector or lover she's envisioned. He's a Hunter bred to eliminate her kind. He's also her only hope of salvation.
Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, was created to protect mankind from the Unseelie Court. For a millennium, he's sacrificed to ensure the horrid creatures remain in the Underworld, but his strength wanes. He must rely on his enemy's daughter to save him, but he doesn't expect the intensity of their lust or love. Her touch calms his wild nature and ignites his carnal desires. He'll risk all to save her, but doing so forces him to make the ultimate sacrifice, one that'll damn him to suffer forever in his own living hell.
"Wh-who are y-you? What…" She focused on where his chest should be. He glanced down and saw the ground, not his body or even a ghostly apparition. "What are you? A g-ghost?"
"Not a ghost. I'm alive. I'm just not here."
He stretched an invisible hand out… and touched her cheek. The surprise in connecting with her in a tangible manner nearly pulled him away from her. With mental fingers, he tugged her closer. He wouldn't lose her.
Not now, not ever.
He slid a hand to her bottom and pressed her body flush to his. The cushion of her breasts stirred his lusts. His erection thickened in response to her nearness. Impossible, so he would've thought.
The half-breed fairy in his arms would one day become his enemy. A child of Dahm, she carried the chaotic taint he'd willingly invited into his body. It should've begun to corrupt her, turning her into a monster too. Yet…it hadn't. Why?
Calan tipped her head back. Her dark blue eyes captivated him. Fear shown in them. After a moment, a desire to match his flared. He skimmed his fingertips over the contours of her angelic face. Possessiveness rose within him and mixed with an intense need to protect her. She was special. He sensed it, but didn't have time to explore it.
"You need to run. You cannot allow them to steal the goodness you've managed to retain." Because it belonged to him. So too did the female. He would claim both and she would be the one to free him. The rightness of his vow took hold.
A millennium had passed without him finding the one half breed who would have the courage to free a Huntsman. Nine years ago, when he'd spied her in the midst of flowers, he had. Today, he would ensure she did, no matter the cost.
Nancy Corrigan believes in unending love and epic tales with a paranormal flare. She enjoys transcending the boundaries of reality to take her readers on an erotic, emotional and romantic journey. She resides in Pennsylvania with her husband and three children. When she's not weaving sizzling fantasies, she works as a chemist in a pharmaceutical lab.
