Guest Author & Giveaway: Larissa Ione featuring Sin Undone

Tuesday, August 31

 ***This giveaway has ended, but you should still read the's worth your time:)  Thanks for joining the fun!***

What can I say....I have the pleasure of hosting another great guest author today.  Larissa Ione is here today to share her fifth and final novel in her New York Times bestselling Demonica series, Sin Undone.  If that title doesn't grab your attention then I fear you are at the wrong blog :)  Read and enjoy!

Welcome back to Seductive Musings Larissa!

***Happy to be here! Thanks for having me back!

If you had an opportunity to provide only a two or three sentence "teaser" quote from SIN UNDONE, to grab the attention of potential readers and give them a glimpse and feeling of what the story is about what would it be?

Oh, how fun! Okay, here are a few sentences that really give a nice preview, I think! *g*

     “Yeah.  I need sex or I die.  So stop with the obnoxious chaperon shit, because I really don’t want you anywhere nearby while I’m doing it, and I don’t think you want that either.”  Sin gave her brothers her sweetest smile.  “And know that the second you’re gone, I’m going to ride Con until he begs for mercy.”

     Eidolon sighed.  Shade swore.  And Con muttered something that sounded strangely like, “Mercy.”

Tell us about your hero, Conall Dearghul.  What do you think will make readers, much like his heroine Sinead, fall for his sexy self?   And can you tell us a little bit about their story in SIN UNDONE?

Conall is a dhampire, a half-vampire, half-werewolf.  He lives for adrenaline rushes, and Sin certainly gives him that. He's been exiled from his clan for hundreds of years, works at Underworld General for the thrill, and he loves a good fight as much as he loves a good tumble in bed. Hopefully readers will like his messy blond hair, thick, hard, um...fangs...and ripped body as much as Sin does!

Their story is an adventurous one, taking the two on the run all over the world.  At first, Con needs to keep Sin close for his own health, but danger to both of them soon requires that they work together no matter how much Sin protests.  Oh, she needs him (she's a succubus, after all,) but she doesn't want to belong to him...and Con's nature won't allow anything less than complete possession...

What's your favorite scene or moment from SIN UNDONE, and why? Can you describe it, or provide a short excerpt for us without giving too much away?

I have several favorite scenes, but I think my very favorite, and one of the first scenes I wrote, is the very last one.  Obviously, because it's the last scene I can't give much away, but I really love how everything is wrapped up with an unconventional twist for one couple. *g*

What are five fun facts about you or this book, that readers would love to know?
  1. Snow is prominent in Sin Undone, and it’s no coincidence that I love snow. The freak snowstorm that takes place in a few scenes is based on my military time spent in Montana, where I experienced a freak snowstorm on the 4th of July, just two days after 70 degree temperatures.
  2. In another snow scene, skiing is the focus… one of my favorite pastimes.
  3. Though Sin and her brother, Lore, are both half-breeds who have no personal symbol on their throats the way their purebred brothers do, Sin does have a tattoo on the back of her neck. And yes, she put it there for a reason…
  4. The “gun safe escape scene” comes right out of the book of my life. I actually knew — okay, went on one date with — a guy who had done the same thing Con did. Never know when you need to make a quick escape, apparently…
  5. Sin Undone sets up the spinoff series coming in March, introducing both the villain and the hero of the first book, Eternal Rider. I had a lot of fun taking Sin, who Eidolon has referred to as basically “chaos on legs,” and making sure the word “chaos” applies to her in every way. Seeing how she sets of a series of events that could lead to the end of the world, I think Eidolon had it right!
What are some of your upcoming releases, or new projects you are working on? We’re dying to know...and we promise not to tell a soul ;)

Oh, I'm sure you'll keep my secret! *g*  So...shh...don't tell anyone, but I'm working on the second of the Demonica spinoff series, which is about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  The second book stars a female Horseman, so I'm having fun with that.  The first book, Eternal Rider, will release next March, and you'll meet the hero, Ares (War), in Sin Undone. I'm VERY excited about this series!

If you could ask readers a question what would it be?

You walk into an underworld pub, and sitting at the bar is a gorgeous vampire, a hard-bodied werewolf, a breathtaking angel, and a smoking hot incubus.  Which one do you naturally gravitate toward?


As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she’ll die before she’ll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin’s innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence.


Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she’s no stranger: He’s bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld’s most wanted and Con soon learns he’s the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.

Congrats on the new release, Larissa. I would probably gravitate towards the breathtaking angel.

Chris J. August 31, 2010 at 1:09 AM  

My best friend loves Larissa and gave me a few of her books to read. An wow, I have really enjoyed them. Great blog!
Best Wishes.

Barbara E. August 31, 2010 at 1:30 AM  

Thanks for the lovely interview, I enjoyed it.
I would naturally gravitate toward the gorgeous vampire. There's just something about those sexy vamps that I can't resist.

Armenia August 31, 2010 at 1:33 AM  

That's hard to answer because, of course, they're all sinfully sexy. But to choose...I would probably gravitate to the wolf shifter with all that animal magnetism.*g*

I just loved your teaser quote, and Lord have mercy on Conall because Sinead sounds like she knows what she wants and needs. Whew! And now, I'm really curious about the gun safe escape scene in the story, sounds pretty intriguing.

Congratulations on your release of Sin Undone.

Anonymous,  August 31, 2010 at 1:40 AM  

Hopefully, they're sitting next to each other because I'd be attracted to all of them and we'd make a pretty nice group. There's no way I could choose just one.


Linda Henderson August 31, 2010 at 2:04 AM  

I think the breathtaking angel would probably be the one I'd go for.

Great interview!

Hm, I would go with the angel. Both the vampire and the incubus would want something from me (blood and soul, respectively) and I'm allergic to dogs (get allergy shots for a lover? what an idea!).

Danielle August 31, 2010 at 7:22 AM  

I'm so excited about this book.

I think that I would go for the incubus for obvious readsons ;)

debbie August 31, 2010 at 8:02 AM  

I would probably go for the hard bodied werewolf. I would at least be warm in the winter.

That is a hardone to answer. I would have to say the breathtaking angel. I would probably also want the vampire and werewolf.

CrystalGB August 31, 2010 at 1:48 PM  

Sin Undone sounds great. I am dying to read Sin's story. I love Larissa's books.

JenM September 1, 2010 at 12:56 AM  

I'm heading right for the werewolf. I don't know why, but I love shifters. Maybe because I'm always cold, and they are always really warm?

Love this series! Can't wait to read Sin Undone.

booklover0226 September 1, 2010 at 5:47 PM  

Twenty years ago, I would say vampire. But now that I'm older (and always cold), I'll head over to the incubus!

Looking forward in continuing this series.

Hi Larissa, great interview ladies!!!

I am so excited about book 5 - can't wait to see what happens. I totally love this series and a bit sad to see it end though eagerly awaiting the spin off! I've loved every single character introduced I think.. though Wraith has been my fav.

oh geez - that question is a hard one! I like all the above can't we say the more the merrier lol!
Ummm i'd take the vamp or the incubus i think though seriously if I had to choose...

First and foremost, Congratulations Larissa on your new release and the success it is bringing you. Also, I am looking forward to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse series. Just the name Ares gives me shivers!

Hmm.....can't I play with all of them? No fair. Okay, I want the smoking hot incubus.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
