Book Description: 

Welcome to the world of Nyw’Gaia where genetically engineered werewolves and vampires have battled for centuries. They fight to the death. They, most certainly, do not fall in love…

An illegally made vampire in his father’s Nosferatu army, Prince Skyy Hi’daat leaves the city of Nocturne for the lush alien domain beyond.  He finds this world filled with exotic inhabitants who would just as readily kill him as look at him. He is unprepared for the desire he feels in facing the werewolf that is supposed to be his natural enemy. Ravished and then rescued, his vengeance knows no bounds for the creature that dared put his filthy paws upon him.

Cathedron is the city of Arachnae’s greatest champion. On a deadly stealth mission to infiltrate Nocturne and discover the source of the infection that is eating the world, he finds he cannot help but hunt Nocturne’s gorgeous dark prince. Skyy’s scent ignites his desires in a way that is strictly criminal. Remembrances of Skyy’s body fires his blood against every law, against his own common sense. The wolf is determined to have the vampire again and make Skyy his forever.

Against the heat of the passion that threatens to consume them both, Nyw’Gaia is dying. An ancient darkness is infecting the denizens of the world and killing everything in its path. Their love is forbidden, but only their love can save Nyw’Gaia now.

Excerpt: 

The wolf was covered in the pierced and tattooed designs so prevalent amongst the ruins of the First Colony. The markings denoted a complete surrender to savagery, a negation of even the faintest hint of civilization. Skyy had seen designs like them in the museums and art galleries of Nocturne. They were an intermingling of the human-like designs of the First Colony along with the artwork of the aliens that had populated the planet before the first human settlers had landed hundreds of years before. The werewolf wore inked bands across the hard muscles of his arms that might have favored the Celtic designs brought from Old Earth had they not been populated with ja’anaszi stones—tiny glittering jewels that radiated with the uncanny inner light found at the mined core of Nyw’Gaia. Ja’anaszi stones were illegal in the City of Nocturne, the tiny rocks imbued with a narcotic so strong it had been known to kill on contact. Once placed upon the flesh, the stones bonded with the skin and needed the aid of a skilled surgeon to be removed. Often whole limbs were lost in the procedure. And the werewolf wore enough of them to kill an entire human district. The stones were known to be a glittering white, the light inside them throbbing to the heartbeat of the wearer. The stones the wolf wore were an uncharacteristic blood red.

Raven hair slid in a straight black wave down the creature’s shoulders and inky eyebrows arched over long black lashes. His finely sculpted face, complete with smooth cheeks and high cheekbones, was the home of arched raven eyebrows, which rose to peaks over those incredible eyes. There was something so wild about the look of him that it captivated Skyy.

He could not look away as the wind picked up the long inky cape of the werewolf’s hair and played with it, jangling the multi-colored beads and tangerine feathers that decorated it. The picture was both spellbinding and incredible and the new vampire’s mind took its sweet time processing it all, down to the silver metal and ja’anaszi stone collar that decorated the beast’s throat. Still, not quite used to his new perceptions, Skyy found this creature as fascinating as the Trinity and his body reacted to its presence in much the same manner as he had reacted to the Three Moons. The beast sparkled, the blood red stones embedded in his flesh glittering like sustenance and Skyy was suddenly filled with the dark hunger that denoted what he was, but there was something else to it…a certain and undeniable lust of a completely carnal nature.

Interview with Raquel Taylor


Do you plan everything or just let the story flow?

I find it impossible to write with a plan. I get an idea or a character and just starting writing. Doing things in this way never fails to lead to chaos, but it’s a beautiful kind of chaos and I enjoy sorting it out.

Do your characters ever want to take over the story?

While my characters do not want take over a story, they do have minds of their own. I can’t make them do anything they really don’t want to do. I am currently working with three veryunruly characters, while they don’t want to take over, they don’t exactly want to behave either.

What drew you to the M/M genre in particular?

It’s just another love story to me. The draw is always the same, always love.

Do you write in other genres besides M/M?

I write in whatever genre I am inspired to write in. Sometimes the inspiration comes from a haunting song, or a beautiful picture—a character forms within the realm of that song or picture and then I go searching for a mate for that character.

What is your favourite food?

Lasagna. Like Garfield.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Night. I can’t stand the garish light of day, vampire-style. I deal with it, but I don’t like it.

Where do you dream of travelling to and why?

I’d like to go to Japan.
Why? Gackt.

Do distant places feature in your books?

Yes, I enjoy travelling through the experience of writing.

Do you listen to music while writing?

Definitely.

Could you tell us a bit about your latest release?

Savage Love is a story of two people who fall in love despite the fact that they aren’t supposed to. I think this is the simplest way of describing how this book got written.

Skyy comes from a world that Cathedron labels a ‘box’. Inside that box are definite rules and a lot of lies that are mistaken for truths by those that live within the box.

Cathedron doesn’t understand boxes, doesn’t know why Skyy would want to live in one, and is determined to drag him out of that thing. The world has rules, yes. And some of those rules we must follow, but love between two consent adults is not something that one should put rules on—even if they are werewolf and vampire, even if they do, normally, kill one another on sight…

Love can save the world.

I suppose it helps that I really do believe that.

What have you learned about writing and publishing since you first started?

There is a loneliness to writing that I’ve always appreciated. I was always that kid that wasn’t paying attention in class, but scrawling in a notebook. I wasn’t…there. I was wherever the story was. I’ve learned that writing with any kind of success requires a lot more of me than just producing a good story. As far as publishing goes, I learned that, just like anything else in life, you’d better look out for yourself.

Is there anything you would do differently?

I don’t think so. Everything is a learning experience. Knowledge is power.

Who, or what, if anything has influenced your writing?

I can be influenced by a song I hear, or a picture I see. Something beautiful deserves something beautiful in return, so if I hear or see something beautiful, I try to return the favor.

Anything you would say to those just starting out in the craft?

Believe in yourself—no matter what.

What are three words that describe you?

I am a dreamer.
I am … quiet.
I’m just a little bit strange.

What's your favourite book or who is your favourite writer?

Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.
