Under A Blood Kissed Moon (Book 1 – BloodMoon & Magic Series)
Thoren de Lucien
Shifters tore his family and clan apart, and now he’s a vampire tormented by his past. On the hunt, he kills any shifter who dares to cross his path. After a heated encounter with a female shifter, he goes after her, planning to get some answers and then dispose of her like all the others. Thoren is left shaken when what he got, wasn't what he was expecting.
A snow leopard shifter raised by two vampires, she has never had issues of the fanged variety. However, one fateful night left her almost dead and at the mercy of a ruthless vampire. Thoren was unlike any she'd ever met, and she was determined to break through his tough exterior and help heal his broken past.
When Thoren’s past shows up in the form of two shifters, it threatens the bond they’ve formed. Will Thoren convince Ember she is all he needs? Or will his past tear them apart?

Interview With Kelleye Richards:
- Can you tell us a little about your book?
Our book takes place in Denver, Colorado.
Ember McGillivray-Scott is a quick-witted, petite bartender with a flirty personality, and she is a snow leopard shifter. She also had a dark secret she is hiding from her two guardians who happen to be very old vampires. They took her to raise when her mother died in childbirth with her twin sister.
Thoren de Lucien is an angry, ancient vampire out for revenge against all shifters. They destroyed his family and he is following the bloodline of the family that decimated his all those centuries ago. When he first sees Ember, his first reaction is to destroy her like all the others. But something in her moon-kissed gaze halts his finger on the trigger. From there is it a cat and vamp game of two strong willed people. But the more they tangle the closer they become until it releases in a sexy, hot, no holds barred explosion.
- When did you decide to write together?
We had been writing as role players for a book series we both loved for a couple of years. We enjoyed that, but we were restricted to what could be found in the books we followed. We decided we would create our own characters to role play with no limits except what our imagination could come up with. We wrote several “storylines”. One day we realized we had the beginnings of a great book. So, we decide to re-edit our storylines into book form. Under A Blood Kissed Moon with Thoren and Ember was born. Many more characters are screaming at us to tell their stories. Thus, the BloodMoon & Magic Series will bring those new characters into play as well.
- Do you have a favorite spot to write?
Anya’s favorite spot to write is camped out in her office with a nice cup of coffee and the view out the bay window with her kitties as assistants.
Emily’s favorite spot is anywhere that is quiet.
- Do you listen to music while you write?
Anya listens to mostly instrumental easy listening or movie soundtracks when writing.
We have a playlist on Spotify for Thoren and Ember’s story if anyone wants to check it out. https://open.spotify.com/user/1250265997/playlist/07cn6T1NLBHa2EzNQyd00m
- Do you work with an outline, or just write?
We have just a general idea for where we want our book to go, but not a formal outline. We chat back and forth online or on the phone to hammer out the details. We live a few states away from each other, so no just popping over to the other’s house for a writing day. We do seem to have the same brain most days in writing. One of us can be writing one character and the other one writing the other character. We will put them together, and the two different parts will just blend together as if we were telepathically sending it to the other! Our husbands think we are very odd and creepy that way. LOL
- What is a usual writing day like for you? How is it structured?
Our usual writing days are when we have time between work, family and home. Structure? What’s that? Ha Ha Ha
- If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have?
The power of instantaneous travel (think I Dream of Jeannie) so we could just get together whenever we wanted instead of writing together online. Plus, the power of a really good witch to keep up with everything else so we could write more!
- What are writing projects are you currently working on?
Right now, we are working on Book 2 in our BloodMoon & Magic Series titled Under A Celtic Moon. This one is Daegan Scott’s (one of Ember’s guardians) and Ahnya O'Fáeláin’s story. It will be a little different as we do a bit of flashback several centuries to tell their story and it will be quite the tale!
