New York Times-bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her world of angelic rulers, vampiric servants and the woman thrust into their darkly seductive world...
When vampire hunter Elena Deveraux became an angel, with magnificent wings the colours of midnight and dawn, it turned her world upside down.
Her lover, the stunningly dangerous archangel Raphael, is used to being in control even when it comes to the woman he considers his own. But Elena has never done well with authority... especially not when it seems Raphael is the one who needs her help.
The archangels may be almost all-powerful, but there are some things that only a Guild Hunter can get done and Elena and Raphael may be heading for their most dangerous investigation yet.
Nalini Singh was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She spent three years living and working in Japan and travelling around Asia before returning to New Zealand. She has worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher, not necessarily in that order. Some people might call that inconsistency, but she calls it grist to the writer's mill. Also by the author: Archangel's Kiss, Angel's Blood, Caressed by Ice, Visions of Heat, Slave to Sensation.
Author: Nalini Singh
Question: Archangel's Consort is the third book in the Guild Hunter series, how many books will we see in this series?
Nalini Singh: I don't have a set number of books for the series. Instead, I have a storyline mapped out in my head, so once that storyline is complete, the series will come to a natural close.
Archangel's Blade is the fourth book, and will feature Dmitri, a vampire readers have met in books 1-3.
Question: How does it feel to be the winner of the Romance Reader's Association Award for Favourite SF, Fantasy or Futuristic Romance 2010?
Nalini Singh: To know that readers enjoyed my work is just such a wonderful accolade. I'm incredibly grateful for the support.
Question: What will you be talking about as the keynote speaker at the second Australian Romance Readers Convention?
Nalini Singh: I'm still finalising my speech, but one of the things I'll be doing is giving readers a behind-the-scenes look at writing a series.
Question: What authors influenced you to begin writing?
Nalini Singh: I've always been a huge reader, so I think every author I ever read taught me something along the way and fostered my love for the written word.
Question: If you could be an angel, a vampire or a human- which would you choose?
Nalini Singh: An angel - so I could fly!
