Writing Sound Track for Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness #2)

Music and writing go hand in hand. I draw on music for inspiration. I can listen to a song and develop a character or a plot, music a huge trigger for my imagination.

One song can give me everything I need: a character, their personality and background, even their features, while I envision the setting and mood. Today, I will share with you a list of the songs that helped bring about my newest release, Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness #2).

My Immortal: Evanescence – A riveting and haunting song.

E.T.: Katy Perry – This song was put on repeat. It captures the attraction between the characters perfectly, while displaying how different and mesmerizing Dimitri, the hero, is, not only to Kerstyn, the heroine, but also to everyone. He is the most powerful of the vampires and for this, he is feared and respected.

Turn the Page: Bob Seger – When I hear this song I immediately think of Dimitri: loneliness, despair, no one to understand you or who you are, and continuing to put on a show (He is the last remaining pureblood vampire and vampire king).

Just a Kiss: – A purely romantic song. Need I say more?

Here is an example of when I was listening to E.T. and Just a Kiss on repeat.

Caressed by Night

Rulers of Darkness #2

By Amanda J Greene

Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundred years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.

Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri.

Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.

While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.

Excerpt:

His eyes fell to her lips and she could feel his need, his hunger to touch her. Before she could think about what she was doing, she cupped his face, rose to her tiptoes, and captured his mouth.

Stunned, Dimitri could not move, could not think. Her sweet, rose scent invaded his senses. Her kiss was tender as she parted his lips. Their tongues danced as he roughly pulled her against him. Her fingers tunneled through his golden hair while his hands fisted the back of her shirt. The feel of her curves pressed so tightly against him was heaven. Her kiss was magic and he never wanted it to end. His blood raged through him, setting him on fire, and her small groan of pleasure was too much.

Dimitri backed her up against the car. Lightning shot through her and heat pooled between her thighs. The kiss that had begun so innocently suddenly became voracious. She loved it, needed it. His chest pressed against hers, making her fully aware of his hard, honed body. He devoured her mouth as his thigh separated hers. Instinctively, she rubbed herself against him, running her hands over his back and down his sides. What would it be like to make love to him?

Dimitri’s fangs slipped from their sheaths. He could hear the blood rushing through her veins, her heartbeat pounding in his ears. His mind clouded with her thoughts, her passion, her need. He yearned to take her body, her heart, her soul, and her blood.

With a fierce growl, he ripped away, turning his back to her. His eyes were wild, his fangs long and sharp. He could not let her see him like this, not yet. He would frighten her and he could not stand losing her. Not now, not when he had just found her. He had roamed the world alone for thousands of years waiting for his mate and she was finally here.

He took deep breaths, filling his lungs with the cool air of the night that seeped into the garage. He closed his mind, banishing her thoughts, her emotions, and focused on his own. A war raged inside him. His body demanded that he continue, his soul begged for him to claim her, and the beast in him commanded that he take her blood and mark her as his.

Kerstyn gasped for air. Her heart stuttered and her legs trembled. She leaned her weight against the car; it was the only thing keeping her from meeting the pavement. She blinked repeatedly trying to clear the lustful haze from her eyes. Her body was so hot and her shirt was too confining against her breasts. She had been kissed before, but not like that, never like that. His kiss had ignited a ravenous fire within her.

“I’m―”

“Don’t apologize,” he demanded, his voice low and rough.

“I practically threw myself at you.”

“I enjoyed it,” too much, he finished.
