The Hero: Talon

  Talon is the son of a Druid High Priest and Celtic Queen. He, himself, was a High Chieftain in Britain who fought back invaders and secured his clan against any and all threats. After the deaths of his aunt, uncle, wife and son over a short period of time, he was told that his ancient gods had cursed him.

The Heroine: Sunshine

  Sunshine was just your average flibbertigibbet artist into granola, bare feet and art, until a late night encounter showed her another side of the world that she never dreamed existed. It also showed her a part of her own history, she wouldn't have guessed in her wildest imaginings.

The Story Behind The Story

Sherri refuses to ever rush a novel. Because she spent most of her life in poverty, she understands how hard every dollar is to earn, and she won't ever put a novel out on the market that isn't her absolute best. After she finished the first draft of Night Embrace, she hated it. Throwing it out, in the middle of a deadline crunch, she rewrote it from scratch while her editor and agent hyperventilated. Now she is extremely glad she did and is proud of the book. "My readers deserve only the very best I can give them."

Night Embrace came in at a staggering 850 pages in length (the average novel is only 400). Because it was only the second book of the series, Sherri's editor made her cut over 150 pages out of it.

Most of those scenes have now been put into other books.

Until Acheron, Night Embrace was the longest of the Dark-Hunter novels.

Hear it from the Fans

Why was Talon's eyes black when he died while Sunshine was giving him his soul back? His Dark-Hunter powers must first be drained, right?

    All DH have black eyes until their souls are returned to them and/or as long as they have their DH powers. They change colors when their powers are drained.
