Today we are interviewing the amazing Darlene Kyncytes, she writes the most amazing books.
Tell us more about you and what drew you to your genre?
Well, I am a romance author. Hard core! LOL! I believe in curl your toes, can’t breathe kind of love. I have a series in the Paranormal Romance genre and I have also just recently released a Suspense/Romance. As my genre, I have always been a hopeful romantic.
Did you ever think you would become a writer or did your dreams take you elsewhere? I have wanted to be an author since I was a little girl. I didn’t want to be a ballerina, or a princess…I always wanted to write.
Can you share a snippet of your latest book? Sure!! Here is a little taste of I’ll Be Seeing You. I am so proud of this book!
Cole was on her in three strides. He grabbed her arms and pulled her closer to him, and she instantly stiffened. “It’s not like that,” he hissed, his gaze locking with and holding hers with an intensity that pulled the breath from her body. She swallowed hard and returned his stare, refusing to break in front of him.
“You really don’t need to lie to me, Cole,” she husked. “No harm…no foul.” As she said the words, she knew that they were a lie. “You don’t owe me anything.” She could have kicked herself right in the head as the words passed her lips. She knew that she shouldn’t have just fallen into bed with him. That wasn’t like her. She had only ever had one other lover, and she cringed when she remembered how that had turned out. No…men were definitely not in her cards. She had trust issues, and this whole fiasco only proved that they were justified. She felt like a complete idiot for believing that he might have cared for her just a little. She cringed slightly as the thought that he had merely pretended to believe her only to get her into bed slithered across her mind. How could she have been so stupid? How could she have ever thought that he was different?
What is your most favourite snack to eat whilst you write? hmmm, I don’t really snack when I write…but I do drink lot’s and lot’s of coffee! I swear…I don’t give blood…I give Starbucks!!!!!!!!!
Who are your muse’s for when you create a characters and why? That’s a tough one. I mean, my characters just kind of come to me. It’s not very often that I see someone and think…oh, he would be a great character. I usually have a picture of them in my mind that is nothing like anyone I have ever seen before!! LOL In my Supernatural Desire Series, book 1 A Vampire’s Saving Embrace, I will say that I picture Desmond looking like a buff Ian Somerhalder!!
Do you draw any inspiration of these characters from yourself Ok…yes! The smartass remarks are TOTALLY me.
Out of all your your characters who do you love the most. Come on! Really!?!?! That is like asking someone to pick a favourite child!!! I can’t! BUT…If you held a gun to my head…I would have to say Desmond, only because he was my very first!
Do you draw on any of your own life experiences Well, from the paranormal standpoint, no. But, in my Suspense/Romance I did a little. I grew up hanging around cops and detectives, so I was lucky enough to pick up on some things.
What authors do you fangirl over? Oh, wow. hmmm there are so many. I love Anne Rice, Stephen King! Would LOVE to meet that man and pick his brain.
If you or one of your characters could be on a reality show would you? And what show would it be?Naked and afraid!!!!!!!!! LMAO
Do you do any personal research for your books 😉 😉 I do a bit, but I let the story tell itself the way it wants to be told.
If one of your books was made in to a movie which one would it be and who would play lead characters. Man! You are killing me here! If I had to choose, I would say I’ll Be Seeing You. I LOVE the intensity of Cole and Katherine. And once again…Ian Somerhalder and maybe…hmmmm for Katherine…I just don’t know.
Your stuck on a dessert island you have 1 song, 1 book, 1 book boyfriend and 1 luxury item. What and why Let if rain by Bruno Mars The Shining by Stephen King, Cole McKenzie and…wine! lol

Massive thank you Too Darlene I totally adore this woman so much she is amazing.
Below are a few of my favourite books that I hope you all buy.
Katherine Chastain has been running from her past for ten very long years. She is a woman who has been hiding from the nightmare that stalks her. Desperate and sick of jumping at every shadow, she stumbles into the small town Police Department in yet another town where she lives – desperate for help. Desperate to know that she isn’t insane like everyone seems to believe.
She wasn’t prepared for the force of nature that answers her call.
Detective Cole McKenzie was the playboy of the precinct. With movie star good looks and a body just made for sin; he never had a cold bed – but when Katherine walks into his office in search of salvation, he is nearly knocked to his knees.
There is something about her that he just can’t shake. Her haunted emerald eyes burn him to his very soul, and he finds that he wants nothing more than to help her stop the nightmare that has become her life.
Can Cole protect her from someone who is like a phantom? Someone who has been stalking and terrorizing her for most of her life? Can he fight the desire that wells up inside him with just a simple look from this amazing woman? Or will she be his end?
Can these two fight the attraction that snaps and crackles around them as danger lurks in the shadows?
Take a breath and join this thrilling ride!
Abigail Montgomery was happy with her life. She was independent, strong, and had managed on her own for a very long time. That was, until the dark, handsome Desmond LaGrange showed up at the bar where she worked. How could she know that this mysterious man would end up saving her from the evil that she didn’t even know existed? And why was she so drawn to him? Why did he make her body heat with just a simple look? Desmond LaGrange was fighting a past he was trying hard to forget. But when he see’s the beautiful Abby working behind the bar – something deep inside compels him to get closer. The only question is why? And when he saves her from danger – can he resist the strong pull between them to let her go when the time comes? Or will the passion that she ignites in him be his end?
Hard-headed and fiercely independent – Katrina Winslow is definitely not used to being told what to do.
Yet – just when she thinks her life might be heading in the right direction for the very first time – she’s hit with a bomb-shell; and her past pops up to haunt her.
Suddenly, she is sent down a path that she has no desire what so ever to take; and is told to leave behind the one man that she could possibly care for – or he’ll be killed. And that makes for one ticked off Witch!
Now, it’s Lucas Blackwater’s turn to show Kat that he is a force to be reckoned with. He is the Alpha male of his pack – sarcastic, overbearing and drop-dead gorgeous…and definitely not used to being told no.
When Kat tells him that she’s leaving – he doesn’t take the news well – and forces her to take him with her. Whether she likes it or not.
Together they begin a journey that will change their world in more ways than they could ever have imagined. And, as Kat tries to push Luke away; for what she believes is his own safety – Luke has other idea’s. And the sparks fly!
Can Luke convince her that what they have between them is real – or will the dangers that threaten everything they are destroy them? And, everyone that they love – including Abby and Desmond.
A fun, sultry, touching romance with passion and heart! It will grab you and hold on – from start to finish! Join the next journey in the Supernatural Desire Series.
