Meet Guerino Lombardi from Undying Desire, A Novel of the Enclave

Please allow me to introduce you to Guerino Lombardi, second in command of the Enclave. I’m Jessica Lee, author of Undying Desire, a novel of the Enclave. This is a rare opportunity to go behind the veil of the man, or should I say male, who is the master of the Enclave’s best friend. Every warrior within the Enclave is an extremely private individual, especially its leaders. Their very existence relies on the utmost discretion and secrecy. But since I’ve already exposed Mr. Lombardi’s story in Undying Desire, I couldn’t resist requesting a few minutes of his time to see if I can delve just a little deeper behind his gangster playboy fa├žade.

First, here’s an introduction to Undying Desire

Undying Desire300x450

Guerino Lombardi's world just went to shit. Vampire and second in command of the Warriors of the Enclave, he's put everything on the line to save his best friend from what has to be the worst blow a man can take. Kenric, his friend and master of the Enclave, has a daughter, something believed impossible in the vampire world, and word has it she wants her father and his Enclave dead. Guerin is determined to protect Kenric, keeping the secret from him until he knows for sure if this daughter really exists and if she wants revenge.

Eve Devonshire is a woman hiding in plain sight. Not completely human, but not quite a vampire, she's accepted by neither race but is more powerful than either one. Her life has consisted of half-truths and disguises, never belonging or living in one place for any length of time. But now some have heard rumors of her existence and want nothing more than to trap her and dissect her like a lab rat.

To stay alive, Eve can't trust anyone, including the alpha vampire with midnight eyes and a thirst for pain and submission. With her enemies nipping at her heels, Eve has Guerin cornered, and both are determined to get the answers they're looking for or die trying...if they can fight their desires long enough.

Interview:

  • Guerino, thank you so much for agreeing to a few questions so your readers can get to know you a little better. I was fortunate enough to have been able to interview the master of the Enclave and had asked him a few of these similar questions. In your own words, can you tell me a little about yourself:

“Guerin.”

Excuse me?

“Unless you’re about to deliver my eulogy, otherwise it’s Guerin.”

  • Ah. Guerin. Got it. So… Would you mind telling the readers out there a little about yourself?

“I’m a vampire.” He shrugs. “What’s there to tell? I’m somewhere around three hundred years old, and I assist my friend, Kenric St. James in managing the Enclave. Oh, and I kill the bad guys.”

  • The bad guys? You mean criminals?

He leans in from where he’s seated, giving me a closer look at what are probably the sexiest brown eyes hooded by dark long lashes that I’ve ever seen on a man. “I mean the vampires who’d much rather suck you dry than sit here and answer your damn questions.”

Oh… Those bad guys. I nod.

  • What are your hobbies?

“Let’s see… So when I’m not culling DEADs?” A sly grin forms on his mouth. “I enjoy sinking various parts of my anatomy on a regular basis inside willing and delicious human females.”

Okaaay. I cross my legs and clear my throat. I think that’s all we need to hear about that.

“Really? But I thought you wanted to know more about my hobbies?”

I think we get the idea.

  • Yet, and I’m probably going to hate myself for asking, you mentioned a human female. That sounded very specific. So there aren’t many female vampires that partake with you and your “hobby”?

“Let’s just say there are none I like to play with, and leave it at that.” A hint of a fang appeared beneath his upper lip.

  • All right. Agreed. Would you tell us then about your job and how did you come to be involved with the Enclave?

“Most humans aren’t aware but there are DEADs who prey on your kind: Death Euphoria Addicts. Those of our kind who can’t control their hunger and kill while feeding risk addiction to Death Euphoria. DE drives them insane with blood lust. A century ago, I joined forces with my friend Kenric St. James, a master vampire, and we started what is now known as the Enclave.”

  • Does the Enclave have an enemy or nemesis?

“Possibly there is one that may be out to destroy us.” He eases back on his chair and swipes a palm over his face as if he were suddenly very tired. “That’s what I’m about to find out, and if that’s the case, I’ll plan to eliminate the threat—personally.”

  • What is the biggest challenge you face in your story?

Guerin meets my gaze with lethal intensity. “Keeping the secret of who our potential threat is from my best friend.”

  • What is the one event that you feel has helped to shape your personality?

“That’s a subject I don’t talk about, Jessica.” He narrows his gaze on me. “You know that. It’s over and in the past.” A low growl rumbles in the back of his throat. “Vampires live a very long time, and most of us have done things in our past that we’d like to stay buried.”

  • Does the fact that you don’t “play” with female vampires have something to do with the subject you’ve buried?

“Leave it alone, Jessica,” he snarls.

Guess that means I have to leave it alone. But it doesn’t mean that the subject will remain off limits for long, though.

  • Are you involved in a romance?

“Does giving the female I met last night enough orgasms to leave her breathless before I left her bed count as a romance?” He winks.

After a deep breath of my own, I shake my head.

“Then I guess that would be a no.”

  • Favorite indulgence?

“Seriously? You have to ask me that after my last answer.” He grins.

  • Do you have any pets?

“Does Michael count?” His brows lifted in amusement.

I’m hoping Michael doesn’t read these interviews since that was the same response I got from Kenric.

Guerin roars in laughter.

  • What is the one thing you want the most in the whole world?

“For the results from my next mission to not end the way I’m pretty sure it’s about to go down.”

That sounds pretty ominous. I hope for your sake, you get your wish. Thank you, Guerin for your patience with all my questions and for your frank honesty. But I expected nothing less from a warrior of the Enclave. I also appreciate your tolerance with me following along on your mission and telling the rest of your story.

And I’d like to thank you, the reader for taking the time to stop by and learn a little more about Guerino Lombardi and Undying Desire.

*Be careful in the dark. You never know what might be waiting for you there.*

Blurb:

Hunger.
Two syllables.
One simple word.
But for a vampire, those six letters possessed the power to bend the mind of even the eldest creature of the night to its will. Guerin's fangs bore into his lower lip. The copper taste of his own blood did little to sate the ravenous beast in his gut.
“Good. You're coming around.”
Eve. On instinct, he inhaled deeply, drawing in her unique duo of fragrances—cinnamon vanilla. Mmm… Delicious and unsettling. They possessed the power to flip the switch on his hunger and divert his attention toward a desire of another kind: lust.
The ache in his fangs eased, and his incisors receded to a more tolerable position. He swallowed hard, working to find a hint of moisture in the desert he called a mouth. Judging from the strength and clarity of Eve's voice, she'd fared better than he had.
He cracked one eye open, then another, and peered at his surroundings. Gray paneling encircled the room. Pale-yellow lighting glowed from a table at his right. A few feet away another small round table and two chairs sat beneath a heavily draped window.
Definitely not the Ritz, but at least he was silver cage–free, and getting out of here would prove much simpler. Because if he didn't, it wouldn't be long before the need to feed would haul his ass to the edge of his sanity.
Guerin rubbed a palm over his face, the stubble there way beyond a five o'clock shadow, and hoisted his aching and starved body in the direction of Eve's voice. He blinked, and his heart stuttered even in its weakened state at the vision in front of him. Another lamp shone behind Eve, haloing a band of golden light around her raven hair.
An angel born from the womb of darkness? Was it even possible?
“Impressive,” she added from the wooden chair she'd placed near his bed. “I thought it would have taken much longer for you to recover from that amount of UV exposure.”
“What can I say?” Guerin drawled. “I'm an overachiever.” He nodded at the room around him. “Where are we?”
“Always the wise guy.” Eve glanced around the small quarters. “This is my backup place.” She settled her gaze on him. “A girl can never be over-prepared.” Eve threaded her fingers through her hair, pushing it away from her face. “Are you ever serious about anything?”
Guerin smirked. “Beautiful… Seriously, I would think that you'd like this side of me a hell of a lot better. It's prettier.”
“What?” She tilted her head and tossed him a smug grin. “You don’t think I can handle the real Guerino Lombardi? The one who stays hidden behind the smart-ass remarks and charming smiles?”
A snort escaped his throat. “Handle it?” Guerin rolled onto his back and draped an arm over his eyes. “I'm sure Eve Devonshire can handle whatever is thrown at her.” After witnessing her talents for the past few days, psychic shock waves, walking in daylight, abilities he'd never seen even Kenric, a master vampire, wield, left no doubt the woman could handle whatever came her way. The genetic combination of a master vampire's DNA crossed with an abnormally strong female vampire such as Marguerite had resulted in producing a hybrid offspring who could go toe-to-toe, and then some, with any vamp. And it was one mother of a turn-on.

Some Bonds Run Soul Deep...

FORBIDDEN BOND
Eion Mandrake, wolf shifter and rising alpha, has a secret. The years he spent at school in Little Crow Pass, Wyoming wasn’t just for a typical high school education. He’d been sent to learn all he could about life as a human.  What he wasn’t counting on was his best friend’s younger sister, Olivia Wilson. Somehow saving the little daredevil has forged a forbidden bond between them. Pack law dictates no shifter and human are allowed to mate, leaving Eion no choice. He has to leave Little Crow. 
Twelve years later, Eion’s returned, and all he wants is to get in and get out of town as quickly as possible. Yet, the moment he runs into Olivia he realizes the bond he’s carried for the human has flamed into a forbidden love. One that’s burning hot and out of control.
Problem is, Olivia has a new man in her life—one she can count on to stick around. She’s doing her best to move forward and forget her childhood crush.

HEAT RISING: A KINKAID WOLF PACK STORY
Landry Michaels, lead enforcer for the KinKaid pack has a secret. Well…make that more than one. He’s in love with the alpha’s sister, Rosa. And his best friend, Kaleb. It wouldn’t be so bad if having either of them was in the realm of possibility. Landry’s past, and his present, contain one too many stains, making him a bad fit for the pack’s beauty. And when it comes to Kaleb… The fact the male is straight is only the beginning of why he’s “hands off”.

Kaleb Dalton is a male who has it all. A great family. A job that allows him to work every day with his best friend, Landry. Everything should be perfect, right? Except for the fantasies about his partner that plague his days, and the desires for Rosa that taunt him in his dreams. Two people, if he had half a brain, who should not be on his short list for potential lovers.
Ever since she was a little girl, Rosa Kinkaid has had Landry and Kaleb’s attention, but it was never anything serious. They were friends. Besides, there had always been plenty of time for her to choose a lover—a mate. Her family needed her, and they came first. Until now... Rosa's going into heat.
But that's not her only problem. The KinKaid and Gregorson pack are on the verge of war, and there are long-buried family secrets, feelings, and hidden desires rising to the surface along with Rosa’s heat. Some will be shocking, and others, more disturbing than any of them are prepared to handle.

Ariel Estates Anthology

ON THIN ICE When the king of the jungle falls for an Alaskan wolf, it's guaranteed to get hot, putting their lives and his reign on thin ice. Silas Murdock, lion Pride leader of Ariel Estates, is on the trip of a lifetime, big game hunting in Alaska. Everything had been perfect right up until a freak storm barreled into the area ruining their plans followed by an assassin's bullet plummeting them into the frozen tundra. But now that he's conscious, Silas doesn't have a clue what's happened. In fact, who, what, and where he is, is a total blank. But one thing he does knows for sure, when it comes to Theodor Lucas, his hot-as-hell rescuer, a lifesaver has never looked more delicious.

IN THE PRIDE'S BEST INTEREST Eli Novak, lion-shifter and Secretary of Ariel Estates has never been more torn and confused in his life. No male has ever heated his blood or stirred his dreams like this new guy. Eli's straight, right? He loves women. Yet how can this strawberry-blond human who stumbled onto their land have him questioning everything he ever thought he knew about himself? Shayne Matthews is lost in the Smokey Mountains when a light in the distance leads the way to what he thinks could be a potential rescue. But it's a decision that ends up landing him behind bars inside a world he never knew existed and on an adventure that puts him in the middle of a battle for dominance and power. When the thirst for blood at Ariel Estates rears its head once more, Eli is forced into a triangle of options where there is no right move. He must choose between his best friend, the human who's claimed his heart, and what is in the Pride's best interest.
