411 with Emily Guido and “The Light-Bearer Series”

What are my books about?

“The Light-Bearer Series” is about Tabbruis and Charmeine.  He’s a Vampire or Blood-Hunter and she is an Angel or Light-Bearer.  However, I never said in my books that Tabbruis is a Vampire. I said he was a Blood-Hunter throughout the series.

64159_176655879116685_176636999118573_257471_1415437038_nWhy? I wanted to set up this series that action was being played mostly in today’s time period but also in past time periods. Tabbruis shares, along with his other Blood-Hunter buddies, Dmitri, Neal and Thomas all their rich eyewitness encounters with the most significant events of human history.

Now, for the sexy part… Tabbruis and Charmeine are opposites and they attract just like magnets.  Charmeine is Angelic and supposed to kill Blood-Hunters, and Tabbruis is Hellish and supposed to kill Light-Bearers. But when they meet, that is the last thing they have on their mind, quite the opposite!

In “The Light-Bearer Series” we find out that Charmeine has been given the task of being the Queen of the Light-Bearers and as such, she is given a Holy Edict to rid the Earth of evil in ALL forms along with her King of Darkness, Tabbruis.

What goes into the recipe for a great paranormal romance . . . hummmm?

392545_198977216892181_135065112_nOh my, the perfect man, warped on the inside and drop-dead gorgeous on the outside. You need a woman who is not a weakling, but a strong, capable and formidable lady.  I’m so through with women always having to be saved.  “Charmeine” was written in my mind that my women characters were very independent, smart and sassy.  Then you have to have the perfect mystery and mystical mix to make the pot nice and hot to boil in sexiness (smexy), action, and adventure

How did I create the perfect “Swoon” worthy man?

Ah yes, the man. It always comes down to the perfect man! I’m different than most women; I like a hero that is damaged. Heroes such as Heathcliff, Mr. Rochester or Mr. Darcy, all are perfect in my eyes because they are kind of warped on the inside. Then, they melt their icy hearts when the love of their life comes into view. Damaged, good-looking men are always a treat to the eyes. I love tall, no nonsense, dark-haired, half-shaven, dressed nicely, built, athletic, and most of all smoking eyes that can melt anyone with a look.

If I was a paranormal being, what would I be?

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved vampires . . . I guess I watched too many episodes of “Dark Shadows” after school.

I want my readers to know.

Have a good time reading.

Charmeine and Tabbruis 1If you love romance and then don’t settle for anything less than two opposites which when they come together, it is like centrifugal force and the longing and heart-wrenching drama is overwhelming to them and they cannot understand what happened.

If you love paranormal action, you should be hit like lightning when it strikes a beach which makes these wonderful glass conflagrations in the sand. The sand melts with the force of the lightning.

I think Paranormal Romance should have mystery, never possession, but magnetism that can’t be explained or overcame with power, wealth or sex. Romance is not sex. Romance is connection and Paranormal Romance is romance with a bite!

Get to know the gang at The Castle Charmeine in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido


Get to know the gang at The Castle Charmeine… 


Tabbruis – (Tab-bree-us)

Drop Dead Gorgeous 

and Grecian living statue come to life

is Tabbruis!  


Tabbruis is the man of my dreams!  He has deep, hypnotic green, emerald eyes that can make a girl melt.  Kind and honest to a fault, he is The King of the Blood-Hunters!

With a little hint of a Middle-East accent, Tabbruis has a lovely bass voice. However, he can speak almost any language even with the proper dialect.

He was a loner for thousands of years. Very wealthy and rich beyond anyone has a clue at, he usually doesn’t splurge on himself.

Tabbruis makes Charmeine heat up with just a look! Heck, I would too!  He is brave and bold, but shy too.  Ah, the sweetness…  He is a perfect gentleman, but somehow, he makes big mistakes.

He relishes having his Charmeine in his arms!  Now, he loves to spoil Charmeine rotten with any luxury he can think of.

2012-dodge-charger-sxt-v6-photo-473495-s-1280x782Tabbruis loves Charmeine and his family, but he’s a little soft for his muscle car… 2013 Dodge Charger SRT8, AWD with a Hemi Engine with 465 horses.

Tabbruis has a built in radar detector with his Blood-Hunter senses and can race through New York City without getting a ticket!

Tristan and Isolde

However, Tabbruis also loves his horses, Tristan and Isolde too. Charmeine has fell in love with them as well!  Of course Tristan is the black horse that Tabbruis rides and Isolde is the white horse that Charmeine has.

Tristan is always itching to race, but Isolde won’t let him have the upper hand, so to speak! Tabbruis and Charmeine have a blast racing the beautiful animals across the countryside.



One of my favorite to die for characters!

LongDarkStraightOMG!! Dmitri is just “Hotness on a stick!”

He is exact, bold and unbelievably sexy!  Dmitri is the one of the oldest of the Blood-Hunters in the world.

He is wise and helps Tabbruis and Charmeine with his knowledge.  He was named as the trusted ‘Advisor’ to Charmeine. He runs or is the Administrator of the “Castle Charmeine.”

On the other hand, Dmitri can come out with the funniest comments! He is known for his signature and snarky… ‘Oh my’His story really picks up with steamy scenes in the following novels!



Hera is Dmitri’s beloved and gorgeous Grecian wife who comes back into his life and they mix it up!


But Dmitri is also a family man who is devoted to his children, Percival and the darling Athena!

 Percival       Athena

(Dmitri and Hera’s Son)   (Dmitri and Hera’s Daughter)



The lovely and strikingly beautiful young woman is a new addition to the members of Castle Charmeine.

Her powers with ESP and Telekinesis have qualified her to be a the resident Sorceress of the Castle Charmeine.

When she meets Percival, sparks fly…literally!



ThomasI love Thomas and his innocence, but truly, he is an Adonis.  Golden Brown hair and wonderful sky blue eyes…  ahh….

His mission is avenging the death of his precious Laura who was killed; get this…by his own Father, the evil Pascal, the Head of the Elder Council!

He is a very loving and faithful man.  He tries so hard to make up for the terrible Blood-Hunter father he had, Pascal, who is terrorizing and threatening the inhabitants of the “Castle Charmeine.”

Thomas is a very conservative and faithful Blood-Hunter and used to serve as a Deacon in the Catholic Church.

Nevertheless, Thomas has a deep secret he carries and when it is revealed… it will leave you reeling.



Laura is the smart, sassy and extremely intelligent Doctor of Castle Charmeine.  She is an extremely good physician but her bedside manner is not to be found when she is in an emergency!

Laura has been on the Earth for thousands of years as a Light-Bearer.  She has been taking care of people for as long as she has been on Earth. Sometimes with a snarky comment, her humor is always on the mark.

However, Laura has a dark and frightening past, and Thomas is her savior.



(aka Nemamiah)

Neal (aka Nemamiah) is the wonderful HUGE Protector of the “Castle Charmeine!” Neal is from Africa and has a thick accent with a booming deep bass voice.

He is at least 7 foot tall and is just a cuddly teddy bear of the family but he can also rip your arm off yawning!  STRONG MAN!

His bald head and intimidating stature makes him a perfect military man.

He is incredibly gorgeous, but ladies… sorry, Neal has a love and his name is Hameal!  Murdered by the evil Elder Council, Hameal was Neal’s heart. So Neal is out to avenge his gorgeous lover’s death!



OMG! What a hunk!

Hameal is from Egypt, and before he met his lover, Neal, he was a builder of the Pharaohs.

Now, he is a builder, architect and designer of the Castle Charmeine.

In addition, he is a wonderful friend to Charmeine, as they always have their heads together chatting about something… usually gossip.

Ladies, this is the man to have on your side when good times are to be had!



Shane is just too yummy for words!

He is always cracking jokes and provides much comic relief but he is also built like a Viking Warrior!

He has long red hair, crystal clear blue eyes and built like a brick house! Shane has all the characteristics of his mother, Charmeine, a Light-Bearer and his father, Tabbruis, a Blood-Hunter.

He is strong in wisdom and is fiercely in love with his soul mate Sandra Gomez.

They are such a wonderful and dynamic couple!



Shane’s fiancee and spunky spitfire!

Sandra Gomez is 100 pounds of dynamite! She can do almost anything and is afraid of nothing.

She grew up in the Bronx barely surviving and went into the Army where she was recruited into Special Ops. That is where she met her soul mate Shane. They fell instantly in love and care for each other deeply.

She is a Light-Bearer and a Flame-Bearer also.

Also, she has a ‘killing’ sense of humor all wrapped up in one hell of a Feisty woman.

The Men at the Castle Charmeine are truly amazed by this smart, beautiful and deadly adversary!


Last but not least, CHARMEINE!

(aka Charleen, mild-mannered grade school teacher)


When Charmeine meets Tabbruis, it is like two stars colliding. The scene is electric with desire, attraction and heat!

She is light, love, honesty, beauty and courage wrapped into one package. Also, she is hot-tempered, jealous and blows up at times.

Loving and accepting of all the family at the Castle Charmeine.  She draws them to her.  She is also fiercely protective of Tabbruis and her family.

When Charmeine realizes her role as the Queen of the Light-Bearers, she takes the responsibility of saving humankind from all of Lucifer’s minions on Earth!



Here are my trailers for all my books!
