Please help me welcome Ellora’s Cave award-winning author Kathy Kulig!

Hi all, thanks so much for having be as a guest today. Thank you to the readers too for reading and checking out my books.

How many dimensions are there? Okay, I have to admit, I do have a geeky side to me. I love the show Big Bang Theory, I’ve watched old sci-fi movies and TV shows since I was a kid (over and over again, and I have read quantum physics for fun. I also used a little quantum physics to help me build my alternative universe of Anartia for my Demons in Exile series. Don’t worry I don’t go on and on in scientific explanation. I don’t really explain it at all. I used the theory of multi-universes and added and my own twist.

The idea of the series is to entertain and give readers a HOT paranormal erotic romance story with sci-fi/urban fantasy elements mixed in.
If you happen to be interested in parallel universes, alternative dimensions or quantum physics, you can Google.

For the geeks out there: (if you’re not a geek, skip this paragraph). The term multiverse or parallel universe was first described by an American philosopher and psychologist William James in 1895. There are numerous theories. One popular one is called the M-theory or String theory. M=membrane. One calculation says there are 10^10^16 universes (that’s 10 to the 10th power to the 16th power). Just say a lot. But this number of universes is limited by whether or not the human mind can distinguish between one dimension or another. If we can’t recognize it, does it exit?

Maybe I do watch too much Big Bang Theory. Anyway, my demons live in an alternative universe called Anartia. It’s caught between dimensions. And the demons use the energy from the vortexes in Arizona to travel between Earth and their world.

Mortal women surrender to Dante’s seductions. He is a Drone, an immortal who feeds off their lifeforce energy—the chi that keeps his kind alive. When his dimension is on the edge of destruction, Dante must seek the help of one special woman. 

Haley Moore is a Sha Warrior—a mortal with excess lifeforce energy. She has always had a strong attraction to Dante and when they meet again he thinks luck is on his side because his quota of chi energy would be obtained after one scorching scene with this mortal. But the problem is that he is overwhelmingly attracted to her and once with this woman won’t be enough.

Haley tries to draw out the man buried deep within the demon. Their fierce, undeniable passion unravels his plans and threatens her life. Can Dante bear to abandon her when he leaves Earth forever? Dante will have to choose whether to return to his world or to give up his immortality and share his future with Haley.

Read an excerpt

“The kitchen is through there.” He pointed past the dining table. “Help yourself if you get hungry. Your room is this way.” He walked down a long hallway, pointing out the bathroom and his room, then entered a spare bedroom. Flicking on a wall switch, he dropped her duffle on the bed. A lamp on a bedside table, next to a queen-size bed illuminated the room. “Will this be okay for you?”

“This is great. A big room and a beautiful house. I’ve never lived in a house before.”

“No? Where did you live?” He moved over to the curtains and closed them, then moved up close again, so close she could feel his heat. God, she wanted him bad. Chest and arm muscled bulged against his T-shirt. She stuffed her hands inside her pockets.

“I grew up in Texas. Our place wasn’t as nice as this though.”

“Anything else you need?”

“No.” She didn’t take her eyes from him. Her belly quivered and her womb clenched. God, her panties were soaked. She wanted to say, Yes! Make love to me. You almost did once a long time ago in the desert.

He looked at her for a long time, and she fought a touch of vertigo. Dante closed his eyes as if he was struggling with something. Maybe he wanted to kiss her. Abruptly, he turned for the door. “Good night.”

“Dante,” she breathed and grabbed his arm. A wave of dizziness surged through her.

He jerked his arm away and looked up at her almost resentfully. “What?” His words were sharp.

She swallowed, about to change her mind. “You were there that time in the desert when I had sunstroke. Sakari and Brad were there too.”

He glanced down at the floor. “Is that what she told you?”

“She won’t tell me either way. I keep remembering parts of it. I don’t think it was sunstroke. I don’t remember hiking in the desert that day. Sometimes I see an underground room and feel pain, darkness and you holding me. Maybe it was the heat, but it seems so real.”

He raised his eyebrows. “Hmmm. Hallucinations can seem quite real especially when you’re ill.”

“I wasn’t ill and it wasn’t a hallucination,” she said. “Something else happened.”

He crossed his arms and leaned against the doorframe. “You worry about things that happened months ago?”

Anger made her bold. She stepped up to him and placed both hands on his crossed arms. As the dizzy sensation began, she instantly lowered her shroud of white light and her strength returned. “If you won’t tell me about that night. How about you tell me why you’ve never asked me out? We kissed that one time. Things got pretty hot and heavy there and then you stopped. And don’t tell me that was a hallucination. My knee is between your legs and could do some damage right now.” She smiled a little to show she was teasing. She was breathless and her heart thundered while she awaited his response.

The side of his mouth quirked in the slightest grin. “I need you here,” his voice was raspy and rumbled through her chest. There was lust in his gaze. The fluttery feeling in her stomach traveled straight to her pussy. “It’s important to solve this problem with these horses. I don’t want to complicate your life.”

She moved closer, her mouth an inch from his lips and whispered, “Complicate it.”
