BLOG TOUR: Midnight Fire Series By Kaitlyn Davis


Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours for hosting this blog tour. I have Kaitlyn Davis here with a scene from Ignite, book 1 of the Midnight Fire Series, told from a different point of view! Welcome :-)

*****************************

I'm Kaitlyn Davis, the author of the Midnight Fire Series—a whirlwind paranormal adventure with heart-pumping action and heart-stopping romance—and this blog tour is celebrating the release of Scorch, the final book in the series! Thank you for joining me!

One of my favorite aspects of ending this series is that my main character, Kira, finally has to choose between the two leading men—Tristan and Luke! The suspense is killing some of my readers :) And for a while, it was killing me too! So, instead of talking about Scorch, I thought I would take everyone back to the beginning—back to Ignite, the first book in my series (free wherever ebooks are sold!).

This is the second of six guest posts that will turn the attention on both Tristan and Luke as they get to tell their side of the story! We'll be revisiting a few important scenes from the first chapters of Ignite, but this time it won’t be Kira who does the talking…

Next up? The moment Kira meets Luke! Kira has just arrived for her first day of school when she realizes she had absolutely no idea where her classroom is. Good thing Luke is there to save her! Kira takes it as a happy coincidence, believes he's just a sweet guy who wants to help out. But it turns out there was a lot more going on, at least for Luke…
~~~~~
Go time, Luke thought as he walked through the front doors of the school. After almost a year of being camped out, waiting, building a back-story and a group of friends, his mission was finally going to begin. He just needed to find a small strawberry blond girl who looked totally lost…piece of cake…

He scanned the crowd of rushing classmates, with their shrieks of hello and dashes-turned-hugs, searching for a moment of calm.

Nope.

Nada.

Spinning in a circle, Luke stopped as his eye caught the movement of a door.

Of course you dolt, he thought, the front desk.

Rolling his eyes, Luke used his long legs to push through the pack, making his way closer to the principal's office.

And then he stopped short. It was her—it had to be.

Kira Dawson.

The name rolled around his thoughts—the mixed-breed. His mission.

Hopefully she didn’t totally suck, he groaned as he stepped closer. They were going to spend a lot of time together—or at least he was going to spend a lot of time creepily stalking her, but a friendship would be so much easier.

And then she turned, lifting her head, scanning the walls for some clue.

Luke sucked in a breath.

She was gorgeous. In a small, delicate, crazy-hair, crazy-eyes sort of way…but something about her hit him like a punch in the gut. Maybe it was the power brewing inside of her, the power he was supposed to watch out for, but it felt like something else…

Come on Luke, he mentally shook himself. It almost wasn't fair she was girl. Obi-Wan never had to deal with this crap. But Giles… Giles had to deal with Buffy. But Giles was an old man. Maybe Trinity and Neo? But she wore a leather costume and they fell in love. So no.

No. No. No.

Stop thinking about leather.

Okay, Luke thought and straightened his shoulders, so not important right now.

Before he could think about anything else, especially about leather, he stepped behind Kira—just close enough to read the schedule she was gripping tightly between clenched fingers.

"Are you new?" He asked, letting his voice adopt a light, conversational tone. But his stomach was in knots, tightly clenched knots. He scanned the paper again. "Oh, 253C, not an easy walk from here. Come on, I'm next door to you."

He starting walking, not really waiting for her to follow. But from his peripheral, he watched, hoping she would.

Sure enough, after a moment's hesitation, she stepped in line, trying her best to keep up. Quiet little thing, he sighed. She hadn't said a word.

This wasn't starting the way Luke had hoped. He couldn’t stand dull people.

"So you are new, right," he asked, trying to draw some personality out, "or have my great looks made you speechless?" That ought to get a response…

She slowed, looking up at him with raised eyebrows. "Yeah I'm new, and what good looks? You're so tall I can’t even see your face."

"Touché," he said, laughing to himself. All right, we have some feistiness. He could work with that.

Luke took a second look, noticing the fire in her eyes. Powerful. She had to be. Which meant his job wasn't nearly over.

"I'm Luke Bowrey," he said, smiling and extending his hand.

"Kira Dawson. Nice to meet you, and thanks for the help."

They shook. Luke held on for a moment longer.

"Not a problem. When I see a damsel in distress, I just can't help but act the knight in shining armor."

She grinned—a pretty grin, one that was wide, open and honest. But he shoved that to the side. Friends it was.

But nothing more.

Not when he was there to do a job.

"Here's your stop," Luke said, nodding to the door to his left, "hope to see you later."

And he left, hurrying into the classroom next door, slamming his back against the wall as the bell went off.

Friends, just friends. He could do it. He had to.

Luke blinked, taking in the forty eyes staring at him in confusion. The teacher stood next to the chalkboard, mouth agape and brows raised.

"My bad," Luke said with a shrug before bolting to an open seat.

Friends.

Ignite Midnight Fire - Book 1

"With one last look, one final search of the lines of his face for some sign, Kira turned and ran away from the sound of the man she loved laughing in the face of her death."

When Kira Dawson moves to South Carolina, she meets Luke, a blond goofball who quickly becomes her best friend, and Tristan, a mysterious bad boy who sends shivers down her spine. Kira knows they're keeping secrets, but when she discovers Tristan's lust for blood and her own dormant mystical powers, Kira is forced to fight for her life and make the heartbreaking decision between the familiar comfort of friendship and the fiery passion of love.

Simmer Midnight Fire - Book 2

"Slowly, like a whisper almost blown away in the wind, two words streaked across her mind: 'Kiss me.'"

Kira may have survived the eclipse, but her troubles are far from over. She's headed to Sonnyville with one goal in mind: to learn more about her parents. But with Luke and Tristan competing for her heart and Diana gunning for her head, time is running out on the search for her mother. And the closer Kira gets to answers, the more terrified she becomes. The conduits fear her, the vampires fear her, and Kira is starting to wonder if maybe they're right...

Blaze Midnight Fire - Book 3

“Kira gulped, unable to stop the growing sense that everything in her world was about to change.”

With Aldrich’s note burning a hole in her pocket, Kira is off to England to finally reunite with her birth mother. But what begins as a dream quickly turns to a nightmare and Kira is left questioning everything she has ever known. Can she be the conduit Luke wants her to be? Can she be the rebel Tristan needs her to be? Or is she something else? Something no one, not even Aldrich, ever saw coming…

Scorch Midnight Fire - Book 4

“All it did was remind Kira that time was running out. That she needed to choose. Or a lot more than a forest would burn. The whole world would crumble."

Aldrich escaped…again. Tristan forgot…everything. And Luke, well, Luke was getting more than a little impatient. But those were the least of Kira’s concerns, because something else happened in England—something she was trying desperately to forget. A wedge of evil had lodged itself in her heart, a little black hole had nestled into her flames, and it wasn’t going away—not anytime soon…and maybe not ever.

  2. I have a question for the author. As a person interested in writing, I'm curious to know if there was anyone in your life who encouraged you to write, to take that first leap into the unknown? Or, was there an event that was a turning point and made you want to write?
    Thanks for the giveaway!
