Title: Charmeine
Series: The Light-Bearer Series (book #1)

Can romance develop between a heavenly Light-Bearer and a hellish vampire Blood-Hunter?

Tabbruis is a Blood-Hunter, he drinks blood to survive. Over millennia Tabbruis has wandered the Earth alone aimlessly living through many historical events.

Charmeine just came to the Earth in 1997. Little did she know her destiny was to be Queen of all the Light-Bearers?

When Tabbruis meets Charmeine the attraction is immediate and passionate. They are polar opposites and clash together in a strongly romantic and dramatic way. When she meets Tabbruis, Charmeine’s powers as a Light-Bearer, one who throws lightning, is triggered and grows exponentially.

Charmeine and Tabbruis soon find out they were made by God for each other; however, on the day God cast Lucifer out of Heaven, they were split up by some mistake. Charmeine sacrificed herself to save her Tabbruis but they were sent to Earth as total opposites and in different times. Tabbruis never remembered Heaven, Charmeine or their child. Until he met Charmeine, he did not know he was the King of Darkness and destined to be her Husband on Earth as he was in Heaven.

Once Tabbruis and Charmeine proclaim their love for one another, they have to battle their way to freedom from the evil forces on Earth.

Okay wow this story will pull you right in and keep you hooked to the very end. Char and Tab are lost with no memory ann know that something is missing. When Tabbruis finally sees Charmeine he realizes what was missing it was her and Charmeine had an attraction to him as well which was unusual for her for she never felt that kind of attraction for anyone before like she did for Tabbruis but unfortunately nothing is ever easy and and things take a turn for the worst when Charmeine realizes someone is out for her blood. Will she survive .... Sorry No Spoilers Here.
Emily has created a vivid and beautiful but yet heartbreaking world at times that you can relate to in many ways. Her character development is is good. She created well rounded characters and the story alone will leave you wanting to read more of Tabbruis and Charmaine's  love.

Title: Mactus
Series: The Light-Bearer Series (book #2)

As Charmeine and Tabbruis unite to proclaim their love for one another it becomes apparent that a new and dark task has presented itself for the lovers to overcome. Even with the beautiful union between Tabbruis and Charmeine, destiny will surely reveal itself.

Being the Queen of Light, Charmeine is fated to bring light and love into the world, but yet her personal life can in no way interfere. Devoted to Tabbruis and her son Shane, it is all she can do to focus only on them. As the rule of engagement commences, she must first step up to the plate
and bring forth a change that will only start an endless feud that has already been acclaimed centuries into existence.

As King of Darkness, Tabbruis has been placed in his position for a purpose. His love for Charmeine has only brought peace and clarity to his existence. With his family now back together, he must now stand against his own kind, not only to protect what is right but also to protect the world from the impending darkness.

Family bonds only strengthen the ties. Shane introduces his proclaimed love into the picture and in a jaw dropping course of events love is tested and the family is torn apart. They say that love can span the planes of existence, but can this family hold tight until the end and keep it together
just long enough to face forces of darkness that is so hell bent on destroying the world?

In the the second book of this series we continue on with Tabbruis and Charmeine's love as we are gradually introduced to new characters that add more twist and turns and makes for another good read has we the blood hunters and light bearers continue to rage at war with one another. With the one book being broken down into three separate novels it is easy to want to give spoilers but I keep my reviews spoiler free but I encourage everyone to read this series. Emily has created a beautiful world where light versus dark  in an epic battle.

Title: Accendo

Reality throws our star-crossed lovers, Tabbruis and Charmeine, for a spin as they now are faced with the evil lurking at their doorstep  Family must hold strong or pay the ultimate price.

Rekindled love between Charmeine and Tabbruis has been tried and tested and now will become the support beam for the next revelation. With the most powerful evil knocking at their door, Charmeine and her family now will be tested like never before. Will faith and love will hold it together?

Unimaginable forces are to be fought with the Elder Council, hunting not only Charmeine but Tabbruis as well. He broke the rules and now must pay the ultimate price for allowing the Queen of Light to live.

With enough faith in their family, secrets begin reveal a new dawn for Charmeine and her family. New days are coming and a fresh start is on the horizon.

Emily is just a great writer because in this third installment in the Light-Bearer Series she delivers another glued to the book page turner as Tabbruis and Charmeine face relationship consequences that they have to face but is their love for each other strong enough to survive.... And the battle between light and dark continues to rage on how will the loss of loved ones affect the family.

I have a special treat for you all Tabbruis stopped by to talk with us so go grab a drink and get comfortable as we get a peek into Tabbruis personal life ladies be jealous. We even have to other treats before the day is over so sit back and enjoy yourself.

Hi Tabbruis I would love to thank you for stopping by today.

I have something I would love to ask you.

Can you tell us about your past?
First, let me thank you very much for your reception of my company.  I have been on the Earth century after century alone and mostly a solitary individual.  I have served in many wars and campaigns throughout the ages.  I once was a Blood-Hunter of humans but I turned against the life as a killer because I became to the recognition that my life was no better than others on the Earth.  I bear no ill toward humans, Light-Bearers or my other Blood-Hunter brothers.

Can you share one really good experience and one really bad experience?
The best experience besides from meeting my long, lost love Charmeine, was meeting my Blood-Hunter brother, Dmitri.  He and I have been brothers low these many years.  I believe he is the wisest man on Earth.  Many good times we have had on campaigns together fighting on the same squad. 

The worst experience I had was one that I expressed to no one before.  I was a Blood-Hunter on the hunt for humans.  I had taken the life of a woman, and then when I was done, I saw her daughter crying over her lifeless body.  I was shocked into ‘the now’ and swore never to take another human life for my thirst!  I was forever rocked to my foundation at what I was and what pain I caused in my debauchery. 

I know bad experiences can be tough to talk about, but they tell us a little more about what you have been through and shaped you for who you are today?
My bad experiences have been many because I was destined to live on this Earth for millennia without my wife and child, Charmeine and Shane!  Even though I did not know them then, I was lost, empty and gravely alone.  I am very fortunate that I have been redeemed with their love and comfort.  I am the happiest man on the Earth in my love’s arms, Charmeine!

It was great speaking with you today.

If you would like to share anything else please feel free to share it with us?
Just that Emily has given a voice, picture and frame for telling of Charmeine and my life and love.  It seems that even at the most desperate of hours, Charmeine and I have found the love and hope to overcome our worst fears and enemies! 

Maybe if you are not too busy talking to Emily about what is going to happen next you can stick around for awhile maybe some of our guests would like to ask you a few questions also.

Yes, I would like to appease you.  You are very kind indeed!

Great job on this interview. I am hearing more and more about novels that were too long and then broken down into two or three. I think it's great. I get overwhelmed sometimes on some epic novels. LOL Thanks for the giveaway. I'm looking forward to reading this trilogy.
