Mindi Ferrari - "Midnight Assasin"

Today I am delighted to welcome author Mindi Ferrari to the blog to talk about her career as a writer and also for some details about her new release, "Midnight Assasin (The Hunter Trilogy).  To sweeten things up, Mindi offered to give away a free e-copy of her new novel so if you want a chance, be sure to leave a comment with your e-mail address!

First, let's get to know Mindi a little better with an interview

For readers getting to know you, how would you describe yourself?

Uh oh this is a loaded question lol. So I will stick to describing my writing. Everything of course is wrote with passion, depth, intrigue, and sensuality. My characters are very down to earth and have amazing personality which usually stay grounded in my head long after closing their books. I work very hard to connect with readers who have imaginations that are just as wild as mine, and if there not I bring them in just on the first sentence.

When did you know you wanted to write?

 When did you start writing seriously? I knew when I was in 5th grade and I picked up my first horror novel. I had this intense desire to create my own world’s and to share it with everyone I could. However, I didn’t start writing seriously until about 5 years ago when my diseases kicked into full force. I knew I had to get my dreams and goals out there before life got too hard.

How would you describe your writing?

 My writing is very open and wild. Untamed to a degree that sometimes you need to have an open mind. There are sweet sides and peaceful sides to my stories but there are also dangerous and jaw dropping events and actions made by the characters. My writing is very adventurous, so with that said I dare you to read my book Midnight Assassins

What’s the most surprising thing you’ve discovered about writing, good or bad?

 I would say the writers block you get. My Goodness I get so angry went my characters go quiet and are mad at me cause of the way the story went.

Name some of your favorite writers from any genre.

 J.R Ward, Gena Showalter, Lisa McMann, P.C. Cast.


What’s playing on your iPOD/in your car?

This one makes me laugh everyone who knows me knows I love classic rock. Preferably Bad Company, or The Eagles

What are you reading now?  I am reading The Irresistible Bachelor by J.R. Ward

Care to divulge some of your guilty pleasures?

  Oh boy I might get into trouble on this one but needless to say when asked I must tell. I have a huge weakness for men that have tattoos all over, and have a personality that makes me weak in my knees.. Bring that and some whipped cream and I’m ready!

Finish this sentence: When I’m not writing, I’m__building websites_____

Where can readers find you on the net?

Here's the blurb:

Annie was definitely not ready for the life that was about to be handed to her. She was dealing with a job she liked, but a boss she hated. She had no family
and only one true friend. One horrible day took her life by surprise. Beaten and almost dead she finds her life in the arms of a handsome, over bearing
vampire and wants nothing more than to stay put there forever, but can't seem to let go of her past.

Nicholie was definitely on a mission in his life; to kill the hunters that killed his sister Emma, and maintaining his life as an assassin which was more than time
consuming. Closing in on a lead, he ends up finding Annie instead, and falls head over heels with this breathtaking human that he wants to make his own,
testing his very belief system as a vampire

Now a delicious and tempting excerpt from "Midnight Assasin":

Excerpt 2 Midnight Assassins. (R-rated)
Hearing him growl deep in his chest made the wetness between her legs pool.
“I’m hungry Annie, and your body is just too tempting. I-I-I have too—” Annie cut off his words and pushed his mouth to her neck. Before she knew it, his teeth latched on and he began sucking hard. She felt her blood leave her veins, and grew dizzy, but the stars she saw were colorful and felt like little orgasms popping all over her nerve endings.
His fangs were like straws, drawing her into his stomach.
“Oh Nicky!” she moaned as she felt her body getting lighter, even drifting away. His intense sucking made her orgasm three times before he stopped. His chest heaved and his eyes were half-mast as he looked at her. 
“Are you better?” she asked caressing his cheek. A look of intense desire lit up his face as he pulled back and pushed her body up. He slid down the mattress and gripped her ass with both hands.
 His grip tightened as he pushed her body up the mattress and towards the headboard. “Grip now,” he demanded. She immediately followed and gripped the headboard, her breasts pressing against the cold wood. She looked down to see Nicky licking his lips. A grin appeared on his face like a man about to eat a delicious dessert. The butterflies went to work at the mere thought of him being down there about to devour her.
She didn’t want to hesitate nor did she think he would allow it, so she braced her knees and clamped tight to the headboard, completely submissive to his charming words.
“Nicky I—” Cutting her off, he went to work on her core, licking and kissing every centimeter. Annie’s head flew back and she gripped the headboard with one hand and her breast with the other. He lapped and circled her clitoris, then drove two fingers in instantly.
She lost control...grinding and trashing against him.
Tingles and sensations she had only felt a few times in her life erupted. Every bit of anticipation boiling out of her body, hell she couldn’t even watch him like she wanted to because all her back wanted to do was arch the other direction. Then he bit hard on her inner thigh and began to suck there. As she cried in ecstasy, he sucked harder, his fingers still playing their role inside her. She had never been this wet for any man. She had never felt this good or intense at the same time. He pulled her down, flipped her over then fixed her legs, spreading them just right for him, which wasn’t hard considering her whole body felt like a wet noodle.
When he raised his body up and slowly entered her, it was like a firing squad went off through her muscles. Her Limbic system was setting off small explosions of sensation all over her body, sending her straight to heaven.
She had no fear, as the two of them made love. She felt incredible, safe, like she had someone in her life all to herself.
He kept it slow at first, and tenderly eased himself all the way inside her. Once all the way inside he met her mouth and grinded their pelvises hard. Then he eased back out, just so the tip of his head teased her entrance. Back in he went this time faster, sending Annie completely over the edge.
He rocked into her hard, pulling in and out. Thrusting till the sensations overtook her. He collapsed over her, grinding her clit as she thrashed beneath him. Finally, the last round hit both of them and Nicky clenched onto her lips with his, he groaned and she moaned. She felt his seed fill her up, every last drop pouring into her body. She was now filled with his essence, the very essence she had tasted in her dream. Nicky kissed her body lightly as he trembled against her skin, finishing his release. His hands tightened around her, taking the breath from her lungs. “Oh Nicky,” she rushed on a breath of release.
His head moved closer to hers and she felt as the stubble from his jaw grazed her face. 
Nicky’s body handled her with care and was pretty amazing wrapped over hers like a blanket. Her hands spread out and she grabbed at his shoulders and squeezed, then dug her nails in. He remained erect as she felt every inch of his still hard cock slide along the walls of her core as he pushed back in slowly, and pulled out until only the head lingered inside her, making her body twitch with each silky movement.
She smiled with immense pleasure.
“You’re a tease.”
“I’m a tease?” He grinned. “Tell me Annie, how did you do it?”
“How did you make me turn to mush?”
She laughed hard against his chest, “Look what you’ve done to me. I’m in a fairytale.”
“Nightmare baby, I’m a vampire. Make me a little more spooky, would ya?”
“Oh right—yah, okay.”
He gripped her body curling it tight with his and laid his chin between her shoulder and head. She could feel him smelling her skin; his breath tickled her skin. As she giggled, she realized this was the first time she had ever made love to a man.
She looked down at the beautiful picture of Nicky on the bed. “Oh Jesus, Nicky.” Her head turned back to his when she realized she had blood on sporadic parts of her body.
“It’s okay sweet, nothin a shower can’t fix.” Thank God, heart be still.
“Can I ask you something?” Letting her body relax again, she calmly rolled over to face him.
“How do we explain this to Dr. Woods?”
“There’s nothing to explain. He’s my father. I don’t give a shit what anyone says, you’re mine, and there’s nothing anyone can do. Understand?” His words were very persistent. She loved the fact he felt so strongly about her in such a short time, he was totally in need of her.
“Is he—”
“Yep, and so is Jude, Persona as well, there is Claire, whom you haven’t met yet and Julie, she’s a nut case, that you will see.”
“What about the staff?”
“No, but it’s not hard to glamour them and make them forget.”
“Ahh, I got it.” Just like some of the stories, which made the information easy to remember.
“Listen, why don’t you go take a shower and I will get us some food.”
“Didn’t you just eat? I mean I’m not sure how you work and all, but—”
“I still like food. And even though you drank, you still need to eat. We worked off a lot of calories.” Jumping off the bed, he grabbed her hips, pulled her in close and kissed the top of her head. “Anything special?” he asked while rocking her side to side.
“I would love some hot chocolate, and maybe some more you.” She flirted.
“Maybe?” Hi brows rose.
She reached forward and grabbed his arm, stopping him before he left the room. “Umm Nicky, you’re naked!”
“No, I’m just naturally clothed.” He winked, disappearing down the dark hallway.
