Brodie over at Eleusinian Mysteries and Lisa at Read Me Bookmark Me Love Me are holding a fabulous February Event and part of it is love triangles debates.
I've hosted these before but have never signed up to participate. So I decided, what the heck, and took the plunge. I got matched with one of the hottest guys around, Luc Cain, of Lisa Desrochers incredible series Personal Demons.So I wrote up a debate for him. You can check out the full post here (with Gabe's side and vote for the winner) but here is my post which I'm pretty dang proud of. Oh, and there is a giveaway at the bottom.
From the Personal Demons series by Lisa Desrochers, Luc is a demon from Hell sent to tempt Frannie over to the dark side by any means possible.Wrapped in the oh-so-tempting tall, dark, and handsome package, it's pretty easy to see why Frannie falls hard.
A smug little grin to kill, dark hair and deep dark eyes, I see Luc looking something like Grey Damon, who just has that look about him like he's up to nothing good.
Don't believe me? There are plenty of examples in the book:
“Sii la mia schiava d’amore,” I purr.--Pg. 148 of "Personal Demons" by Lisa Desrochers
Her expression is guarded. “What did you say?”
An amused smile pulls at my lips. “I’ll never tell.” Somehow, I don’t think she’d agree to be my love slave anyway.”
Yup, that's right. He speaks a different language, he reads and he paints. Sure, it's Hell he paints over his bed but it's just because he misses home.
Being a demon, love doesn't exist for them. They obey the devil out of fear and the other demons sometimes couple off out of lust but love doesn't exist in that fiery pit of Hell. Any yet, Luc falls for Frannie, seeing her beauty even when he is a demon. While mingling his soul with hers he comments:
I seek out her essence--her soul. And when I find it, it takes me breath away. I've never experienced anything close to its beauty: shimmering opalescent white shot through with silver... My slick, black obsidian essence swirls and twines with hers, and I'm embarrassed by the thick, oily fell of it compared to the silk of hers.--Pg. 153 of "Personal Demons" by Lisa Desrochers
Sure, his love has a little to do with Frannie's power but he wouldn't continue loving her if he didn't want to. Because even when he leaves and is forced back to Hell and tortured by the devil himself to change out of his human form, Luc resists because he doesn't want to lose his love for Frannie.
He respects her strength, loves her vivacity, and goes against his own nature to make himself better for her. Where there is no love, he manages to find it and hold onto it with every last ounce of his energy, forsaking all else for her.
Why is Luc the better choice? Because like any good dish, he brings the intense heat followed by a brilliant flicker of sweet. He gives everything he has and goes deeper to find more when there isn't anything left. The answer is pretty clear. Plus, let's not lie, he isn't too bad to look at either.
Join Team Luc where looking "hotter than Hell" is just one of the many perks!
I spoke to Lisa Desrochers about this awesome debate I'm doing (because she is one of the coolest people around) and she sent along 4 signed books marks for The Last Rite. I'm tempted to say that you can only have one if you head over and vote for Luc (Luc is telling me this is perfectly acceptable and that his creator MEANT for it to be this way) but Lisa warned me that Luc can be a tricksy one so as long as you head over there and vote, I'm satisfied.
