Interview with Zacke Kensington, Hero of Kensington's Soul part of the Bound By Blood Series by Author Faith V. Smith

Please welcome Faith V. Smith, paranormal romance author and my good friend. She has brought a very special guest today. Take it, Faith:)

Morning everyone! I am so glad to be here with you today. I want to introduce to you a very dear friend of mine who is such a hottie! Detective Zacke Kensington on loan to us from the Savannah Police Department.

Morning Zacke, how are you?

Zacke: Doing great Faith and yourself?

Faith: Much better now that I’ve seen you again. Do you think you could tell everyone a bit about yourself?

Zacke: You already know I’m a detective but I’m also a former vampire. My story began in the late 1500’s and my life or after death in or around 1623 when Lady Gabriella Sanspree turned me into a fanged monster.

Faith: Oh dear, that sounds awfully painful.

Zacke: You cannot imagine the pain of my mortal death and rebirth as a vampire. I truly would not wish that on my worse enemy.

Faith: I completely understand. So what is this about being a former fang-toter? I thought once a vamp always a vamp.

Zacke: So did I. I’m still not sure what happened, but at the moment I’m as human as the next man.

Faith: Well, strictly speaking, I think you make most men look a tad inferior.

Zacke: Thank you… I think. My darling Miranda has told me, I’m a handsome man, but I’ll allow you to judge that for yourself when you read my story, the first novel in the Bound By Blood, The Legends called Kensington’s Soul.

Faith: It sounds interesting. So care to tell us a bit about the book?

Zacke: Within the pages you will discover what makes me tick, what angers me, and what and whom is important to me. There you will also have an up close and personal view of my love life. I’ve not always been a one-woman man, but with Miranda by my side, I find she is more than enough to keep me satisfied.

Faith: How romantic. So how did you two meet?

Zacke: I rescued her from a car jacking.

Faith: No wonder she fell in love with you. I don’t suppose you have any male siblings?

Zacke: No, sorry, Faith. I do have some male vampire friends, you ladies might be interested in.

Faith: I think we just might be, but let’s get back to you. What was the hardest thing about giving up being immortal?

Zacke: I think it would have to be the inability to read my wife’s thoughts. But there are times we both know what the other one is thinking.

Faith: Do tell. Maybe we shouldn’t go there or should we?

Zacke: I will say this, out of all the women I’ve made love to before and after I became a vampire, Miranda is the one woman who makes my knees weak.

Faith: That is so sweet. I just love it when a man admits he has an Achilles Heel. I take it Miranda is yours?

Zacke: Miranda is the light of my life. I would do anything to keep her safe even if it meant giving my own life for hers.

Faith: That kind of love is truly a blessed one. I’m sure Miranda feels the same way. Now, any news on your other male friends? What are they up to?

Zacke: Well I think I’ll let them tell you their own story. Miles Dunbar one of my oldest friends tale will be coming from The Wild Rose Press March 2010. From what I hear, Dunbar’s Curse, is going to be a nail bitter.

Faith: Thanks for the heads up. I’ll make sure to mark it on my calendar. I just want to tell you thank for being here today. May you always fight evil and win.

Zacke: Thank you and may you all be blessed with long life and good health, prosperity, and love.

    Zacke was an easy character to right from the get go. He wrote his own lines...lol.


  7. Faith, do you think you can convince one of Zacke's friends to stop by for an interview sometime? I'd like to meet an available guy or two like him. ;-)

    The book is so exciting and the Vampire legend is a little different with your characters. Nice twist.

  8. Eliza, how are you doing? Good I hope. How's that erotic pen doing?

    On to Zacke, I'm sure I can convince Miles to drop by or I'll twist Zacke's arm to get him to do it.
