Today, I have my good friend Nikki Prince, author of Demon Mine on the Journal. Nikki’s going to answer some questions about herself and her new release.
First, thank you so much for coming on my blog today, Nikki! Tell us a little bit about your new release Demon Mine?
Samael is a fallen angel doomed to repeat his life and love for Liliana Jackson over and over again. That is until she finally remembers who she is and the reason for the curse that has befallen them both. For you see, Liliana was once Lilith the first wife of Adam and the lover of Samael. Are they doomed to keep repeating the past? Or will there be a new future for the reincarnated lovers?
Great premise, Nikki! Do you only write in this genre? And if not, what other genres/sub-genres do you write in?
I am aiming to write within the Interracial/Multicultural genre of Erotic romance in all sub genres of that such as: Contemporary, Paranormal, Fantasy, Horror etc. But this by no means says that it’s the only genres I will ever write. I prefer not to be boxed in.
I certainly understand wanting to have options in your writing. Can you tell us what was your inspiration for this story?
I saw a call for submission for a Succubus story and Demon Mine morphed out of that.
Wow! Take the idea of a succubus and run with it! Great way to get inspired!
Now, titles are one of the most important things to an author. How did you come up with your title? Was this the only title, or did you have a working title as well?
Demon Mine has always been the name for it. Sometimes you just know and it feels right.
I agree with that! Sometimes you just know!
I am a fanatic about my character names. Are the character names in Demon Mine special in any way?
Well, with Samael his name is actually from the fallen angel Samael and never changes unless Liliana or her sister Eva are trying to piss him off. Liliana’s name is her connection to being Lilith. I’m like you Jenna I love names and the names have to pick the characters.
I wondered about Samael. It’s such a cool name!
So, what was your process for writing this book? Is this different or the same as other books you’ve written?
I just sat down and wrote. No process, really. When I am really feeling it I can write for a long time and it flows. If I need a break, it will show with me not being able to think of anything so I take a break.
No outlining at all? Brave, brave girl! I can’t do anything without an outline!
Do you have plans to turn Demon Mine into a series?
Yes, I have already started book number two. This one will feature Eva and Clay. Why or why not? As I wrote the first book, the secondary characters kept talking to me and would not be quiet about wanting their own stories told and I could not see doing otherwise at that point. There will be three books in all. The series is called Karmic Lust.
I am such a fan of series! I have two others planned after my Scandal series!
I always wonder who started people off on their love affair with romance. Who was the first author and book you read in this genre?
God, I started reading romance books at the age of 12. I can’t name the first book that I read. Because once I read one I gobbled them up and constantly looked for my favorite authors such as: Violet Winspear, Janet Daily, Johanna Lindsey, Bertrice Small and the list goes on.
I’m so with you on the “bet you can’t read just one” syndrome! LOL
Sort of in that same vein, who has been the greatest influence on your writing?
I would have to say Bertrice Small. I devoured everything she wrote.
And I have a couple of whimsical questions for you Nikki.
If you could have one wish granted just for you (not world peace, LOL), what would you wish for?
My wish would be to make sure my kids had a home with a backyard (we live in an apartment right now).
Awww, I so understand that! And I hope that wish does come true!
And finally, what is the most exciting/daredevil thing you’ve ever done?
LMAO as a kid I used to dig in mud holes and pick out snakes and frogs. Now…not so much, unless you count every time I push the submit button and wait for the acceptance or rejection emails.
OMG! Snakes?! Frogs? That is beyond exciting and daredevil! But then, hitting “Send” takes huge amounts of courage. I do agree with that, Nikki!
Thank you Jenna for having me at your beautiful blog, I so appreciate it. Thank you to all who have stopped by! If you comment and leave an email, I will be giving out some magnets.

Excerpt for Demon Mine: (ADULT EXCERPT)
Liliana Jackson sat on the bed in the darkened room. Her breath was ragged as she eagerly waited for her lover to arrive. The need she felt was always instant when she thought of him. The slightest movement of cloth from her sundress scraping over her hard nipples tortured her as her bare pussy dampened. She glanced at the small clock on the wall opposite her bed. It would be only a matter of minutes before he stepped across the threshold.
She tried to be patient and wait. She let out a whimper, trying her best to wait for him, but failing. Slowly, she slipped her dress up her thighs, baring her shaved pussy to the air in the room, parting her legs while she leaned back onto the pillows; her fingers teased along her slit in one smooth stroke. She slid two fingers around her wet entrance, and then leisurely teased her clit. Liliana inched one, then two fingers inside of her drenched folds with a moan. She rocked her hips to push them in deeper as her head fell back against the pillow.
She groaned once more as she neared orgasm. One without him. He’d want to punish her, and she’d welcome it. She loved it when he acted all badass around her. In fact, she wanted it. Even as independent as she had always been, she needed his commanding presence, lust and strength. It fueled all of those things within her as well. His needs fed her needs. Her eyes moved to the door. She grinned. There he stood, leaning against the door jamb, arms crossed over his muscled chest. He looked angry—the edges of his mouth turned down and narrowed eyes fixed on her undulating body.
“Hello, lover.” Her words were a raspy purr of arousal.
Samael, her lover and the object of her lusts, filled the doorway with his presence. Samael, with his lithe, muscular body, tattoos on his arms, long, dark hair that fell past his shoulders, and when angry, eyes so dark they were fathomless against his paler skin. He was her dark demon, the possessor of her very being, her soul. He continued to stand there, arms crossed over his chest. Samael’s dark eyes turned hazel as they slowly traveled her body to focus on her fingers, which continued to thrust in and out of her pussy. The change in eye color was a sure sign of his rising lust, a hue she was well acquainted with and wanted … no, craved to see.
“I ordered you to wait, Lili.” She heard the impatience in his voice.
Biting back a small moan, she arched her back up off the bed, her eyes still connected with his as her fingers curled to stroke her g-spot.
“You order me to do a lot of things, Sami. I don’t always listen.”
He gave a low warning snarl. A groan from her was the response he received. He hated when she shortened his name from Samael to Sami. Her eyes moved down his body with leisure, exploring every nuance that made up the fabulous male standing before her. The black t-shirt fit his muscled form well, along with the black jeans that did little to hide his huge hard-on.
“You protest, yet your cock is enjoying the attention I’m giving myself. Seeing as you were late, I thought it would be okay to start without you. Honestly, do you think I would rather have your cock or my fingers?” All the while, her fingers continued to plunge into her tight core, her legs bent on the bed as she arched her back. She splayed her legs out before him so that he saw every thrust.
“Lili, you’re just begging to be spanked.” She shivered and ran her tongue over her bottom lip. His words sparked more need than fear. His approach was leisurely as he watched her continue to pleasure herself. She moved her free hand between her spread thighs and tugged at her clit. “Stop your fingers now. Remove them or you’ll not get what you want from me.”
With measured deliberation, Liliana pulled her fingers from her pussy. Keeping her eyes on Samael, she slowly, teasingly licked them clean. His eyes narrowed, and Liliana smirked. “You didn’t say I couldn’t taste.”
“Remove the fucking dress, Lili. Do it quickly, or you will not get a chance to come as you need to. Then get your pretty little ass on your knees and hold on to the headboard.” His words quickly wiped the smirk off her face. She didn’t say anything as she got to her knees and slipped the sundress off, tossing it to the floor. With one last look of feigned defiance, she turned to settle on her knees with her hands clutched to the headboard. The rustling of his clothing filled the otherwise silent room, and then they were skin to skin. His cock, hard and throbbing, pushed against the crease of her ass as his body pressed close to hers from behind.
Her breath caught in anticipation of his touching her as she craved. She did not say a word. If Liliana tested him, he would follow through on not letting her come. That could not happen; she wanted him bad. A soft mewl slipped from her lips as the head of his cock stroked along her dripping entrance. Her hands tightened on the headboard when he pressed into her. His lips were only an inch from her ear as he spoke with what could only be devilish delight.
