Hello and Welcome All!
Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing one of my favorite Authors, Setta Jay. Her latest release Searing Ecstasy has been the most anticipated title in the series to date, at least for me. Thank you Setta for taking time to talk with me today!
Thank you for having me, Angela. xx
How did you come by creating The Guardians of the Realms series? What inspired this amazing series?
It came to me while reading Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series. I love the whole Pandora’s Box twist she used and that’s what really inspired me. The Guardians of the Realms started as “what if” Greek Gods and creatures of myth truly existed. If so, what happened to them? Where did they go? I also love the whole grain of truth concept which left things open to exciting possibilities when creating the different Immortal races.
What is your favorite character in the series to date? Why?
Wow. I’m not sure I can answer this. I love them all for different reasons. I guess I kind of love all my sassy heroines, maybe because I wish I were like them. Nastia’s snarky attitude was a ton of fun to write in both Binding Ecstasy and Searing Ecstasy. But, Alex will probably always hold a special place in my heart. She was the female who started it all and I love her strength, powers, vulnerability and her sweet relationship with her brothers and then with Uri.
Which of your characters would you most/least likely invite to dinner and why?
I’d probably feel most comfortable having dinner with Rain from Denying Ecstasy. Mainly because her personality is so inclusive and fun. Also because she likes her cocktails. I think dinner with Brianne or Nastia might skate a fine line of jail time. 😉 I don’t know that I could eat with any of the males. LOL They’re all too intense and sexy, so I’d probably feel super uncomfortable and awkward.
I know readers are probable dying for a little Drake dishing. I myself have been fascinated with him from the beginning. Since Searing Ecstasy is his story, would tell us a little about him, maybe a few secrets that no one knows about yet? Please Oh Please! ^_^
Secrets? Wow, you’re really making this difficult. LOL I think Searing Ecstasy delves into his character and shows him for the incredible male and leader he is. I don’t want to spoil anything, but there are things in the book that set him apart. Here is one sexy secret that wasn’t shared before Searing Ecstasy:
One hand trailed over his burning skin until he grasped his hard cock. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt female hands on his skin. Unlike other male Immortals, he’d never been ruled by his dick. He didn’t require sex to fuel his powers, it had only ever eased an ache, which had become less and less worth the effort. Now his body needed a female… his female. Only Delia could fix this and he couldn’t fucking have her. His snarls echoed off the high rock ceiling as he breathed through his mounting fury.
Lastly, what is next for you?
I have two more books (possibly three) in the Guardians of the Realms series which are currently in a four month publishing rotation. I have spin-offs from there along with a potential erotic Sci-Fi and an erotic suspense series I’d love to tackle when I have time.
Setta, it has been a blast. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat with me today. I am humbly waiting for the next mind-blowing novel in this searing, sizzling, and hot series!
Drake, the powerful dragon and leader of the Guardians, has spent his long life protecting all inhabitants of the four Realms, but fails to save the one who matters most. His mate. In the month since finding her feral, he’s been slowly losing control of his beast and soon he fears the dragon will reign free unleashing it’s fury upon the Realms.
Delia has changed. No longer a carefree young woman, she is now a nightmare in the making. After her abduction and torture she unwillingly houses two beasts and more power than she can ever contain on her own. She can never be released. Nor can she have the male who gives her any semblance of sanity in her new world, the one she craves more than her own freedom.
With unknown enemies on the horizon and yet another God awakened will they lose themselves in the madness of an impossible mating? Or will they come together in searing ecstasy, bonding them in a way that sets them both free?
Warning: Sexually explicit content (beds actually get burned down, people) and alpha males and females with bad language.

Setta Jay is the author of the popular Guardians of the Realms Series. She’s garnered attention and rave reviews in the paranormal romance world for writing smart, slightly innocent heroines and intense alpha males. She loves writing stories that incorporate a strong plot with a heavy dose of heat. Her influences include Judith McNaught who she feels writes a smart heroine to perfection, Gena Showalter, Maya Banks and Lora Leigh. You can often find her writing compared to JR Ward, but if you are a fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood be warned that Setta Jay’s novels are more erotic in nature.
Born a California girl, she currently resides in Idaho with her husband of ten plus years who she describes as incredibly sexy and supportive, even when it’s Willy Wednesday on Twitter. 😉
She loves to hear from readers so feel free to find her on social media or send her an email and she will happily reply.
