Black Rayne Silent Screams by Yvonne Nicolas

14 Sep

Let’s see. Where do I start?

I remember the day I sat down at the computer and started writing. It was right after I finished a book from Zane. God, I love her writing. You could say she was my inspiration. In the back of my mind, I had always wondered if I could write an erotic novel, but was content with just reading them. My mother, also an avid reader, coaxed me to give it a try.

So, five years later, I finally did!

The first novel I banged out was titled, “The Shade of Lust.” Since mentioning it, I glanced at it for a good laugh. It’s in pretty rough shape, but it’s still sexy as all get down. One of these days, I may go back to it, dust it off and put out there for the readers to see, but for now, I’ll leave it locked up in the vault.

After I realized I could actually write a book, I wrote, Designing Love. I got the idea for this novel while working as an Architectural Designer for a small firm in Florida. The storyline for this one came easy to me and the love scenes came even easier.

The hero in the story, Devon, has the attitude many architects have to this day. Arrogance, yet brilliant. Josephine, on the other hand, shares his brilliance, but is humble about her work, which mirrors the personality of a friend of mine who is a fabulous interior designer. Love you, Michelle!

In my head, their love affair started out as a sweet romance. By the time it streamed from my brain to my fingers, it became a hot, steamy bowl of lust. LOL! Hey, what can I say? That’s where my muse takes me. I appreciate and love all of the emails I’ve received from readers expressing their enjoyment of my writing. And to answer the question that many have asked, yes, I am writing a sequel to Designing Love.

As long as God spares me with life and health, I’ll continue to wow the readers with my off the wall tales.

Black Rayne Silent Screams was a novel I’d wanted to write for some years, but was too chicken to do it since the very idea of it was pushing boundaries and breaking rules. It played over and over again in my mind as a dark journey where there are many obstacles and unrestrained sexual desire along the way. After being persuaded by a few friends, I typed my thoughts out and the edgy urban fantasy was born.

The idea to put a 17th century nobleman with a 21st century hip-hop diva seemed farfetched at first thought, but I somehow made it work. Though they are total opposites in every way, shape and form, they are drawn together by the sheer fabric of dark passion and the duty to protect a world that has no knowledge of the impending doom that’s about to fall upon them.

The next book in the series is Black Rayne Scarlet Moon. Like Silent Screams, this story is filled with lust, action and death, but of course, I had to push the boundaries ju-u-ust a little further. *snicker*

You can find both novels and Red Rose Publishing.

    Ooh, impending doom, one of my favorite plots *g* Lovely post, Yvonne – thank you for sharing your journey!

    What drove you to pick a 17th century hero (as opposed to 18th or 12th century, for instance?)

      Hi Angel! Glad to see you. Thank you so much for dropping by.
      I love the whole style of the 17th century, especially in Rome. When I was doing my studies, this part of history fascinated me. The hero was the hardest character to create because I wanted to bring old style flair to modern times. It’s actually pretty interesting to see the two main characters converse. Demetri’s so poised and well spoken, while Rayne is relaxed and cool, not to mention a little hood. But that’s part of the reason why Demetri finds her so intriguing. :o)

    Awesome blog Yvonne! I know the feeling of finishing a book. It’s great! The story sounds steamy! Two thumbs up!

    Loved the blog, Yvonne. Must say a hip hop diva would difininetly put a twist in any 17th century nobleman’s knickers. I could just see him standing aghast then getting the naughty gleam in his eyes. Good luck with your books! Looking forward to more!
    PS: Can’t believe your mom got you into writing erotica. I’m hiding mine from my mom…lol
