One woman, the fate of the world in her unknowing hands. One man, sworn to destroy her. A love so strong it defies nature. In a world of obsession, deception and betrayal, the line between good and evil fades, but one truth remains absolute. Darkness must fall.
For centuries, werewolf, Dominic Ridolfi, has battled the demons of the night, upholding the sacred pact to protect man from vampires. Yet when sent to destroy the long lost Cacciatori heiress, the vampire prophesied to free her kind from the curse of darkness, he finds himself reluctant to complete his task. The innocent beauty awakens his humanity and Dominic finds himself not in the role of assassin, but savior.
Swept away in a whirlwind romance, Kate loses herself in Dominic’s mysterious world of opulence and seduction. But Dominic has a secret. He knows the truth about Kate’s past, and her future, truths with the power to destroy them both. Only in her dreams does Kate sense the growing darkness within. Dominic saved her once, but can she save herself from the darkness within?

Fall of Darkness Character Interviews

         I thought it might be fun to go about this guest post a little differently. Instead of introducing my characters myself, I’d like to interview them and let them tell you a little more about themselves. So, without further ado, meet Kate and Dominic…

So, Dominic, what about Kate first drew you to her?
D: Aside from the fact she is the most beautiful woman alive? (grins) I would have to say her heart. I thought I knew everything there was to know about Kate before I ever met her, but there are some things pictures and words can’t describe. At first, I was merely intrigued by the idea of a compassionate vampire. Then she turned my world upside down. Kate is kind, genuine, and incredibly passionate. She feels with so much intensity and puts her heart into everything. That is one of the things I love most about her.

What about Dominic first drew you to him, Kate?
K: Hmm, well, I guess he’s not bad to look at either, (winks) but I’d have to say it was something about his presence. He doesn’t just enter a room, he fills it. He walks in and he’s all I can see. I don’t know if it’s that dazzling smile or those big brown eyes, but something makes you want to peel back the onion layers and see what’s behind the charm and good looks.
D: The onion layers, cara
K: Yeah, ‘ogres are like onions.’ (grins) Fine, babe, you can be a parfait. Everybody likes those. The point is Dominic is complex. He has so many layers and it’s fascinating to peel them back and discover new facets of the amazing man underneath.

What are your favorite things to do together?
D: (Raises eyebrows) Besides the obvious? I like helping Kate experience new things. I’ve been around a long time. I have pretty much done and tried everything. Yet when I experience them with her, I feel that first-time feeling all over again.
K: I don’t really care what we’re doing, as long as it’s together. I love to just hang out. Dominic is really fun to talk to and spend time with. He sucks at card games, so that’s always fun….
D: (laughs) I do not. You cheat.
K: (grins and shrugs)

What has been the best moment in your life so far?
K: The night Dominic proposed.
D: When Kate came back to me.

What was the scariest?
D: Telling Kate the truth.
K: Waking up and learning I was a vampire.

What is your biggest regret?
K: Besides being born a vampire? Not trusting Dominic the first time around.
D: Not telling Kate the truth sooner. Not that she would’ve believed me anyway.
K: Hey, you have to admit, it all sounds a little crazy.

What one word best describes you?
K: Oxymoron
D: (sad smile) Traitor

Aside from each other, who do you trust the most? Why?
D: My brother, Giovanni. He would do anything for me and I for him.
K: My best friend, Lindsey. She’s my sister from another mister.

Dominic, how has Kate changed your life?
D: In every way possible. She awakened my humanity and emotions. Before her, I was a machine, a ruthless assassin with only one purpose in life, killing vampires. I knew nothing but anger, hate, and revenge. I feel things with her I never imagined possible.  My purpose is to love and protect her. I have turned my back on everyone and everything I’ve ever known for her, but am a better man for it.

Kate, how has Dominic changed yours?
K: Well, since it’s not actually Dominic’s fault I turned into a blood-sucking demon after I met him, I can’t really blame him for it. So, I would have to say he has given me a will to live in a world of which I wanted no part.  I can face anything with him at my side.
Kate, what is the best part of being a vampire?
K: Honestly, being a vampire kind of sucks, at least for me. On the bright side, I don’t have to count calories anymore. All the chocolate in the world couldn’t make me fat.

Dominic, what does it feel like to phase into a wolf?
D: When I decide to shift, I focus on my wolf form and energy similar to an electric current races through my body. Power vibrates through every cell in my body as each shifts and mutates into another form.  It is painful yet exhilarating, feeling the raw power course through me. I have never been electrocuted, but I imagine it feels quite similar.

Can you share any secrets about the next book in the series, Dark Redemption?
D: If we did, we’d have to kill you. All I can say is it’s darker and grittier than Fall of Darkness. You’ll get to see a whole different side of certain characters and will be surprised by what they’re capable of.
K:  It’s all about redemption- for me, Dominic, and Alexander. We’ve each done things in the past that we’re not proud of, but in Dark Redemption we have a chance to make it right.

         I hope you’ve enjoyed this small insight into the lives and minds of my characters. The first installment of their story, Fall of Darkness, is available now. The second, Dark Redemption, is due for release early next year.  I’m so excited to share more of their story with you. Thanks for stopping by.
