Thank you for inviting me to the blog with my new Evernight Publishing release, ‘A Little Mysterious’.
The book is Romance on the Go, it’s an erotic paranormal romance, set in England and very sexy.
I’m talking about the inspiration behind the book today, and especially Dhruv the main male character.
I’ve had Dhruv in my mind for a couple of years, his name and his personality, but his looks and the complete story only gelled for me after a guy came into the place I work, and he was ‘just Dhruv’. Right way I knew I’d met Dhruv. (Laughs)
I got the name from some work I did when I was on a traveling holiday in Australia. I had to book appointments for a company, and there was a client named Dhruv Mystery. (Really) I loved the name and stored it in my memory for future use, though my Dhruv doesn’t have a surname. Also, the sight of an entire flock of black swans swimming in a river estuary near where I rented a holiday home stayed with me until the story poured out onto my laptop after, as I said, actually ‘meeting Dhruv’.
The man, who was just passing through the antique emporium where I currently work, was just gorgeous. His looks are described exactly in the book. (Smiles)
He’d been sent off course…he thought he was lost…until he found Daisy.
His vampire abilities were special. He belonged to an elite group. Moving home, they are set off course by a storm that lands Dhruv alone, hungry, and desperate in a strange town. That’s where he meets Daisy

He entered behind a group of other people and headed straight to the counter. There were no free stools, but bizarrely, as he stood in the gap between one row of four and another, two people stood up from their seats and their newly served drinks, and left. Dhruv sat down and waited until she approached him. He declined service from her colleague, and it made Daisy smile.
“Hi, Dhruv. What can I get you?” She gave him a special look. It said he could ask for anything he wanted.
Dhruv waited for a few seconds before he answered. He leaned on the counter top with his elbows and returned her look. “I think you know, Daisy.” There was more said in his tone of voice than the words.
They gazed at each other, and Daisy was mesmerized by his beauty. She gave an involuntary sigh as she looked at him. She wanted him so badly it made her dizzy. Each night she thought about him as she lay in bed waiting for sleep to overtake her. He would kiss her, not waiting long to put his hand inside her panties and feel her. Feel the throb between her legs, as she got wet wanting his fingers in her, wanting his cock in her. It made her needy and she sometimes had to reach her fingers down and stroke her clit for relief.
“Black coffee, please.”
Daisy broke into a grin. “One day, Dhruv, you’ll surprise me.” She left him watching her with his cool stare as she went to get his coffee.
