Renegade Vampire

After a long hiatus from blogging, I am happy to announce I am back with news about my Immortals. Book #12 in the series, Renegade Vampire is finally out. In the last year and a half, I’ve been so focused on my publishing schedule and advertising that I forgot about popping here for an update. Since my last post, I wrote more than I could publish, I experimented with shared-world projects and collaborations, I spent money on Facebook and Amazon ads… I have learned a thing or two in the process, but the most important lesson is that I need to take it easy. So here I am, hopefully sticking to the resolution.

See you soon,

Monica

TLW 11 con piuma

Where is your home town?

I’m originally from Rome, Italy, but I now live in Redmond, a small town in Washington State, in the US. Rome and Redmond have nothing in common, one is chaotic, colorful, and ancient, while the second is peaceful, green, and new. Yet, I love them both because they fulfill different needs I have.

How long have you been writing romance?

I have been writing love stories since 2009. Publishing a book was one of the items in my bucket list, and around that time I was reminded of how precarious life can be. I started writing one rainy morning and I haven’t stopped since.

 

What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?

Both paranormal and science fiction romance are my favorite, but throw in the midst…

The Hidden Demon (The Immortals, #4)The Hidden Demon by Monica La Porta

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Hidden Demon is book 4 in the Immortal Series, a sophisticated paranormal romance set in and around Rome. Peter is a demon, a loner, he is a renegade controller of the paranormal world and works for The Holy Council at Castel Sant’ Angelo.

The Broken Angel (The Immortals, #3)The Broken Angel by Monica La Porta

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Broken Angel is book three in the Immortal series, a stand alone novel it was still lovely to re-acquaint myself with some of the characters from the first two books. The books are set in and around Rome and combine chic modern Italy, romantic scenery and a paranormal world.

Book three is about Samuel, a fallen Angel who gave up his responsibility for the souls on new-borns in their journey from the womb to mortal life, all because he fell in love with a human. A Human who rejected him once he’d made his decision and left Samuel shunned for all eternity. Now Samuel is a liaison officer between the paranormal species working at the Immortal Council Headquarters in Rome.

Given a new assignment Samuel must look into Vampire blood-dealing issues. He runs into trouble on…

The Immortal Greek (The Immortals, #2)The Immortal Greek by Monica La Porta

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Immortal Greek is a sophisticated and sexy paranormal romance set in the Eternal City of Rome. It is the second book in the Immortal Series, but easily stands on it’s own. Alexander Drako is an Immortal with a reputation as a millionaire playboy, his parties are the talk of the town and he is always being featured in the gossip magazines.

This year his famous party has had to move its date due to the Immortal Council’s annual Gala, but the fun of the party ends when a young Immortal commits suicide. The Council call in The Enforcer, Ravenna Del Sarto to investigate the suicide and it appears he is a victim of The Immortal Death.

When several more bodies turn up Alexander and Ravenna must work together to find the person or persons behind the…

  • What inspired you to write this book?

I’ve been wanting to write a series set in Rome for the longest time. There aren’t paranormal or urban fantasy series that are focussed on the Eternal City, and I’ve always thought that Rome is the perfect place for romance. Ancient and mysterious, elegant and decadent, but also joyous…
