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.

SEDITIOUS… “The Light-Bearer Series” I’m chomping at the bit for it to be out… Plus personal update! By Emily Guido

Lord Cromwell 1“Okay, we have to imprison Lord Cromwell, check,” and Charmeine held up her hand making a check mark in the air.

“Listen Sis, we need to tell you of how daunting Lord Cromwell is,” Hameal remarked as his face became stoic with a very serious look.

“Some of Earth’s darkest times were influenced by him,” Hera added.

“We know his deeds from our holds in Heaven,” Laura said as she folded her arms across her chest and sat back with a distant look. “We could see the loss of life and destruction he caused by clouding men’s minds. It’s a pretty lengthy list.”

“Yeah Mom, he was the one to influence building the Tower of Babel,” Sandra chimed in.

“The actual Tower of Babel?  But how…?” Charmeine asked.

“Generations following the great flood with Noah, we, the people of the Earth spoke one language,” Dmitri interrupted her and had a far off look on his face.

With a glimmer of recognition, Tabbruis added, “We migrated from the east, and came to the land of Shinar.”

“Where the people resolved to build a city with a tower,” Thomas said with a black face.

“The tower was supposed to have its top in the heavens…” Hameal murmured.

“Lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the Earth,” Neal grumbled.

“And so God scattered them upon the face of the Earth, and confused their languages, and they left off building the city.” Laura welled in tears.

“You knew each other then?” Charmeine asked with wide open eyes.

They all shook their heads no.

“We did not know each other then, but we lived the same history,” Tabbruis replied.

Thomas uttered with a face of reminiscence, “The Tower which was called Babel because God confounded the language of all the Earth.”

“I’m constantly amazed at the history you all have shared.” Charmeine’s face lit up when she heard about the events they lived through.

“Charmeine, you romanticize history, but those who have lived it, are traumatized by it!” Tabbruis snapped.

She looked at him with surprise. He never lost his temper until Bathsheba came. She felt like her heart was bleeding.

“Amen to that, Tabbruis!” Laura blurted out. “Charmeine, you have no idea how lucky you were to appear on Earth in 1997. Some of us have had to live through Hell.”

Julius Cesar (Malmö)

Hameal could see Charmeine was still hurt from Tabbruis’ retorts. He tried to change the subject. “The assassination of Julius Caesar was from his doing. Cromwell also influenced Hernán Cortés who was mainly responsible for the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire. The carnage of the people and rape of the land was immeasurable.”

“Mom, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and his wife, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated on June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo. Their deaths were the impetus for World War I, and we believe this pitiful excuse for a Blood-Hunter is guilty,” Shane said with a frown.

“How can Lord Cromwell wield such power?” Charmeine asked. She tried not to get sick and said, “But, two questions weigh on my mind. First and foremost, how did Pascal overcome the influence of Lord Cromwell? Second, why didn’t Pascal kill him? Why imprison him when he knew he was such a threat to the Blood-Hunters?

“We do not know, but I feel positive the family will find out those answers,” Tabbruis replied. “Nevertheless Charmeine, you need to know what kind of a force we are dealing with.  Lord Cromwell will not be easy to defeat. I am afraid the Elder Council was just a warm up for our family’s strength to be tested on Earth.”

Interview of the men in The Light-Bearer Series


377303_4040958076419_1469625629_n (2)This is Emily Guido reporting to you live from the “Castle Charmeine” in Romania.

I have been waiting for the interview for several days now. 

I didn’t know what to expect but when these gentlemen came in… I am (swallow) pleasantly surprised to say the least… (swoon)…

Gentlemen,Good Evening!

ALL: Good Evening.

 

Emily:  Let me start out with a general question just to break the ice.  Do all four of you live at the ‘Castle Charmeine’?

ALL:  Yes.

 

Dover-CastleEmily:  Now, who originally owned this enormous and ancient castle?

Tabbruis (in a slight European accent):  I think Dmitri should answer that one.

Dmitri (in a very thick Romanian accent): Oh my… Well, you see my dear; I came to Romania a long time ago, over 5000 years ago, as a matter of fact. 

(Chuckling)

I had many experiences here and some of the local townfolk used to make up a scary bedtime story about me… the “Red Dragon” is what they called me. 

But then Tabbruis came, and we began to share the castle.

 

6a00d83451f4a069e2014e89ddd499970d-800wiEmily:  Excuse me?  (wide open eyes) What do you mean by “Red Dragon”?

Dmitri:  Oh my… Well, my dear, Emily that is “Dracul” to you and I.

 

Emily:  Uh….Dracula?

Dmitri:  Well, my love, if you want to think it is me. Oh my…that is fine for me.

(Smiling at Emily with his bright white teeth and long eye-teeth)

 

Slide1-1Emily:  Oh!  Well that’s okay… (a little scared… turning to Tabbruis now…)  

Tabbruis please tell me about yourself?  

(Still looking out of the corner of my eye at Dmitri who is smiling at me like a cat watching a canary)

Tabbruis:  I… well I am just a happy man now that I have Charmeine. 

She is my love, my wife, and she literally lights up my life. 

Before I met my soul mate, I was incomplete…  I do not know how to explain it…

Thomas:  He was all alone.  Tabbruis accepted it, but he was not happy?

Tabbruis:  Yes, quite right.  I never thought I would ever be mated to a woman.  However, now that I have my soul mate, Charmeine, she is my universe.

 

EdSpeleers3Emily:  Well Thomas since you spoke up?  How are you today?

Thomas:  Yes, well… I am fine.  We are very busy at the castle expanding and renovating. 

There is a lot of family to accommodate, and we are constructing new rooms right now.

NealNeal (In a gruff African accent):  My lover and Husband, Hameal, and I are constructing new additions to the Castle Charmeine. Hameal is skillfully assisting me.  

However, you three are trying to get me killed or at the very least permanently injured!

Tabbruis: I am sorry Neal. I became distracted… Charmeine was just so beautiful in her dress, that I could not concentrate.

Neal:  That is no excuse for not paying attention; it was a power nail gun!

  

Emily (snickering):  So I take it there was a mishap with a tool in the renovations?

mDmitri:  Oh my…

Yes well…

Tabbruis did not look where he was going…

Consequently he shot a nail, and it landed in my good friend and protector, Neal…

Thomas (laughing out loud):  He shot him in the butt!

Dmitri:  Oh my… yes but… (excuse the pun) everything is fine. 

We, Blood-Hunters, heal very fast my dear Emily.

Tabbruis:  Thank God for that!

 

Emily:  So… on another subject… gentlemen, um tell me you are all so incredibly gorgeous, are all Blood-Hunters like you?

Dmitri:  Oh my… well, I believe we are all classically handsome…

(giving a wink to Emily… *she swoons*)

 An image from the Dolce & Gabbana watch campaignTabbruis:  Dmitri… I think she means that we are some sort of eye-candy for the ladies.

 Dmitri:  Oh my… I wonder what kind of candy I am?

(looking at Emily with his eyebrow raised)

 Thomas (little squeak):  I am… well yes ma’am… we are all… UGH!

 Neal:  Yes!  I believe all Blood-Hunters are pretty good looking, but my love, Hameal is incredibly gorgeous!

 Tabbruis:  Neal means that Blood-Hunters, in general, are good looking… (Rolling his eyes)

 

Emily:  I’m getting something of an undercurrent to this question?  Is there?

Dmitri:  Oh my… see my love, Emily, we are all good-looking to the ladies.  Yes, very much so. 

Thomas:  But we did not ask to be so good-looking… I guess it comes just natural?

 The MEN of the Castle Charmeine  

            Dmitri           Thomas             Tabbruis           Neal

Emily: (fanning myself with my notebook):   You all…  I mean are all Blood-Hunters good-looking?

Tabbruis:  Well women seem to be naturally attracted to us.

 

Emily (gets a drink of water… starting to get dizzy looking at these wowser men):  How could women not be attracted?

Neal (gruffly):  Do not look!

Thomas:  She is a human woman.  She cannot help but be attracted.  Neal, just because you are not attracted to her does not mean she cannot look.

Neal:  Well, I am certainly no woman’s eye candy!

Dmitri:  Oh my… (as he purrs to Emily)

 

Emily (trying to avoid Dmitri but loving every minute):  Have you had women falling over you before?

Tabbruis:  Many times… but I waited 8000 years for Charmeine, my love!

Thomas:  I… I am taking the fifth on that!

Dmitri:  Oh my!

Neal:  Never… Thank God!

 

12756856294JmmmlEmily (pulling my hair up and taking a big gulp of water):  Tabbruis, can you tell me your favorite past time at the Castle Charmeine?

Tabbruis: That is easy, spoiling my love, Charmeine.  We have two horses, Tristan and Isolde, which we ride and go down to our private beach.  (Tabbruis smiled in revelry)

 

sexy-couple-on-beach-sideEmily:  Private beach?

Dmitri:  The Castle Charmeine has a beach flanking its property on one side, so we ride out there every chance we get.

Neal:  Yes, Tabbruis and Charmeine are out there quite a lot.

Tabbruis:  I will have to admit that Charmeine and I love the beach.  I just want her to happy.  I love Charmeine so much…

Thomas, Dmitri and Neal:  We know!!!

Emily:  Well, on that thought, (wetting my lips down and fanning myself) I will end this lovely interview. 

It certainly has been fun interviewing the “MEN FROM CASTLE CHARMEINE!”

SEDITIOUS is almost here! 4th Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

4 Seditious Book Cover

Down the corridor, Dmitri pulled Hera into a small study.

Deep inside her heart, Hera was still hurt. Even though she understood about how Bathsheba clouded his judgment, she could not understand how he could fall to pieces again. With this in mind, she most certainly did not want to be pulled anywhere by him. 

He closed the door, and immediately held her against his body so she could not leave his grasp. 

“Dmitri, release me now!” 

“I will not release you until you have forgiven me, Hera.” He bent down, and kissed her cheek.

“You have my forgiveness, now let me go!” she grumbled with clenched teeth.

“No, Hera…” he sighed with a lilt of shame. “I want you to forgive me,” and his eyes became pools of tears.

She could see his regret and offered, “Let your mind be finally at rest Dmitri. I believe you are truly sorry for your actions. I also believe you were tricked and deceived by Lucifer who sent the Witch.”

Suddenly, Hera hugged him as to hold his gorgeous body closer to her. With desperation, she pleaded, “My love, I ask your forgiveness too.”

“What?” He pulled away to look in her eyes. 

“For years Dmitri, I have harbored covetous jealousy toward you and Bathsheba. But, it was unfair to think you had any obligation to your deceased wife. You did not know I was in Heaven waiting to be released of my hold.”

“My lovely Hera, I understand. There is nothing to forgive,” he sighed as he shook his head.  

“That is exactly how I feel, Dmitri.” She threw herself into his embrace.

He held her close and wrapped his large arms around her tightly. Dmitri kissed her neck and whispered with a sexy tenor in his voice, “Hera, are you ready for this my dear?”

“No, but I will make do.” She looked away to avoid his eyes.

“When we get in there, do not hold back my love. Let me have it, as they say nowadays.” He took her face in his hands and growled with passion. “My divine Hera, I love you. As much as I regret my actions all those years ago, you can punish me until the end of time, and it will not take my shame away.”

“You should not carry that shame, Dmitri. Let it go. Release all the negative feelings you have. I love you, and I know you love me.” Tears streamed down Hera’s face.

He wiped each one as they fell.

“When I was a little girl, my dreams were filled with images of you. When we stared at each other across the crowded Agora Market Square, I knew you were my soul mate.” She released the tie which tucked away his long hair, and ran her fingers through it. Her body responded in kind to his sexual charisma and held him closer.

“You saw me in your dreams before we met? I never knew that, Hera. You should have told me,” he uttered while he enjoyed her touch.

She wet her lips, looked up through her thick lashes and replied, “Dmitri, even though you were my soul mate, I did enjoy the chase.”

He closed his eyes and smiled with the pleasure that Hera loved him at first sight.

“Dmitri, it does not take a mathematician to know the equation: love, plus love, equals love.”

As he burned with passion, Dmitri took her face in his hands, and kissed her sweet lips. The kiss turned into an explosion of want and sexual need. He pushed her against the wall.

Hera moaned, gripped him harder, and burrowed her fingernails into his backbone to keep a close embrace on him. She surrounded her legs around his waist.

He growled with pleasure.

Their desire was in the air like a warm energy which passed through them. They liquefied against the wall of the study, almost to the point of no return. Breathless with passion, they pulled away from each other.

“Now, that is what I call a makeup kiss, Dmitri.” She saw his eyes had become blue pinpoints from want.

“Hera, after this duty is over, I will come to you, and as they say…” he took her hands, pushed them against the wall palms up as pink light pulsed through their bodies which made every part warm and stimulated, “…you have not seen anything yet.”

“Husband,” she whispered, “I will be waiting for you to come to me,” and winked at him. Hera took a big breath and advised, “Unless you want to explain to the children the facts of life, you better calm down.”

Again, they pulled away from each other hot with passion.

“I will always have the need to kiss you, to be near you, to love you, my beautiful wife.”

Hera took the tie and began to gather his hair back into a ponytail.

Dmitri smiled because it felt good to have her hands in his hair. “I will show you that you are my one and only love.” He kissed her again with softness. As he let go of her, he could see her body blush as she bit her lip in anticipation.

Things are heating up!

A friend told me last week, “Seditious is one of those novels that really make you sit on the edge of your seat.”

I took that as a real compliment, and it made my day!  I was smiling from ear to ear.

I hope today you have a good thing said to that makes your day!
