Today we have a couple of very special guests here in the wastelands!
Who you might ask? Well today we have the epic couple Lucia & Vittirio from Perpetual Light!
They've agreed to sit down and answer a few questions for us, although they didn't agree to keep their hands off eachother for long...
But before we get started how about I introduce you to the women behind these amazing characters, author Jordan K. Rose!
Author Bio: After trying her hand at many, many things- from crafting and art classes to cooking and sewing classes to running her own handbag business, Jordan finally figured out how to channel her creativity. With an active imagination and a little encouragement from her husband she sat down and began to write, each night clicking away at the keys with her black Labrador, Dino curled up under the desk.
A few short years later she’s entered the publishing arena with no plans to ever turn back.
Jordan’s a member of Rhode Island Romance Writers, as well as RWA National, and the New England (NEC), Connecticut, and Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal (FFnP) Chapters.
Her first book, Perpetual Light, is available on Amazon’s Kindle from Crescent Moon Press.
You can pick up your own copy at Amazon.

And now let me introduce you to her fantastic book...
Synopsis borrowed form Goodreads:
Fate is cruel. Especially when the one you’ve sworn to love for all eternity, the very soul who changed your destiny is the last person you should trust.
After more than three hundred years of running, Lucia Dicomano must make a choice.
Forced to take her place as a Pharo of Redemption, the divine slayer needs to master her forgotten powers. Lucia turns to Vittorio, the one vampire she’s failed to deliver from eternal damnation. But overcoming smoldering remnants of love, lust and anger aren’t their only obstacles.
Samuel, who may know Lucia better than she knows herself, hunts her with a fervor stoked by a thousand years of vengeful hatred. His plan—capture and enslave the weakened Pharo then take control of her elusive power.
Can Lucia trust Vittorio long enough to reclaim her powers? Or will she have no choice but to kill him and battle Samuel alone?
Stop by tomorrow for my review!
But now, without further ado, I give you Lucia and Vittirio!!
Lucia: Hi Darkfallen. Thanks for having us. We're really excited about promoting our story, Perpetual Light. You're our first interview so please forgive us if we're a little nervous. I'm Lucia DiComano and th—
Vittorio: Della Caccia. You're Lucia Della Caccia,
Lucia: Right. I forget. You'd forget, too, if you'd been reincarnated and hadn't seen you're husband in more than three hundred years. Don't get all bent out of shape. *smiles* It's not like I've been using that last name in this lifetime.
Vittorio: I'll thank you very much to start today. *slides closer to her on the couch*
Darkfallen: Well, why don't I open up with a question for you Vittorio. After not having her for hundreds of years how did you control your desires around her? I kept expecting you to lose it. Lol
Lucia: Yes, Vittorio, how did you control yourself? *grins and bats eyes* Inquiring minds want to know.
Vittorio: *Exhales* She certainly did not make it easy. Let’s just say everything involving Lucia requires a great deal of concentration. I kept reminding myself I'd held out for this long a few more days wouldn't kill me.
Lucia: *mumbles* No. Unfortunately, that's my job.
Vittorio: Stop worrying. *Tilts Lucia's chin toward his* As you say, it is what it is. I've accepted my fate. When are you going to accept yours?
Lucia: I hate it. *looks away*
Darkfallen: Lu, I know you tried over and over to get him to give in, did you ever get so frustrated that you just wanted to give up?
Lucia: *smiles* When do you mean- this time around or the first time? *nods toward Vittorio* He's always had that stubborn streak. In Italy I thought for certain I'd lose my mind. I even threatened not to marry him. It almost worked.
Vittorio: *Vittorio's eyebrow arches and flecks of gold and green sparkle in his eyes* Yes. Almost, but I did not fall to your tactics. You might want to ensure your parents know that fact. I'm fairly certain I'm going to be in hot water one way or another with your father. *Shakes his head*
Lucia: What? We're married. *laughs* We're allowed.
Darkfallen: Vittorio, you were so mad after you found out the truth about Lu yet you never questioned your love for her. How did you do it?
Vittorio: *slowly smiles* No, I have never questioned my love for her. How does one deny his soul mate? *tucks stray curls behind Lucia's ear* Never. Never could I deny my love.
*Lucia blushes, glances at me and winks*
Darkfallen: Lu there were times when Vittorio was mad at you that, if I were you, I would have collapsed to the floor sobbing. Did you ever think you might?
Lucia: *Sucks in cheek, then barely nods* He does have a temper. Bruno has said you'd have to be dead not to notice Vittorio when he's angry, and I have to agree. *Glances at him* I did fall apart that night. After you left me in the bedroom.
Vittorio: You say it as though I really left you. I simply needed space, to think. I was somewhat surprised by your confession. *slides his arm around her shoulders and sighs* Darkfallen, it's been a very, very difficult process. One I fear will only get harder.
*Lucia rests her head on his shoulder*
Darkfallen: Lu I know that it's instilled in you to kill vampires but can you honestly say that you wouldn't be able to consider joining Vittorio just to have him forever? I mean just think...all that hot man to yourself for all eternity. *winks*
Lucia: *Giggles* Hot vampire man. I do love him, vampire or not. An awful lot. *Peeks up at him*
Vittorio: Forget it. Even if it were a desire of yours, I would never allow it. You deserve peace, redemption. I will never let that be taken from you. Not as long as I live. *Eyes darken*
Lucia: There you have it. *Sits up, shakes head* Even if I wanted to do it, which I never said I did, it's not an option. Besides, I think if it did happen, I wouldn't last long. I'm pretty sure Father said something about freeing my soul himself. *Shivers* It wouldn't be pretty.
Vittorio: We should go. You need to practice. You lack consistency and you still don't know how to call your power and remain conscious on this plane. *stands* Darkfallen, thank you for having us. But, my wife needs to regain her focus and prepare. *holds hand out to Lucia*
Lucia: *Rolls eyes* Did I mention I hate practicing? Or that I hate this whole vampire slayer thing? It would be so nice to just be married and go to work at my old job. *turns to me* Darkfallen, thanks for the interview. By the way. You should check out the sale at Tempo. Right about now they'll be having a huge winter sale. They do it every year. All the remaining items from last year's women's accessories lines will be on sale. At least 75% off.

Stop rushing me. She might be my only chance to get that crocodile belt. It's from the Fortunata line. Royal blue. *Sidesteps him* If you can get it, call me. I'll overnight the money to you. Well, Vittorio will overnight the money to you. *Smiles*
Vittorio: *Shakes his head* Come on.
