Speed Date My Hero-Alex from Morwenna Drake’s DARK NIGHTS EMBRACE

by Em Petrova



Welcome Alex, the sexy hero of Morwenna Drake’s DARK NIGHTS EMBRACE, now available from Red Sage. I can’t wait to hear more about you, so let the questioning begin!

1) What do you do for work?

I’m a vampire hunter, mostly. So, training, staking, stalking – that kind of thing. When I’m not doing that, I have an interest in collecting rare books.

2) Where are you from?

If I told you that, I’d have to kill you. No, seriously. Or someone else might kill you first. Either way, that’s more of a second date question.

3) What is the one thing about yourself that you would like me to know?

That, despite appearances, I’m just a normal guy. I might hunt vampires, but afterwards I like to settle down with a beer and something good on TV like anyone.

4) When was your last relationship and how long did it last?

Well, serious relationships have been really difficult ever since “Twilight” came out. Girls tend to lose interest in me after they realise that being a hunter is dangerous, not just fun and games. I actually dated a girl called Buffy once, just for the irony, but it didn’t work out.

5) Do you want to marry or have you ever been married?

I’ve never been married and I’m not sure if I would. I wouldn’t want to tie a girl down to living the life I do.

6) What do you do for fun?

Well, killing vampires is kinda fun. But I like to settle down with a good book and a glass of wine for some escapism. I go to the movies too, but only with my stake and my night-vision goggles. You never know what’s waiting in the dark while you’re busy watching Milla Jovovich.

7) What are you most proud of?

About three years ago, there was this really vicious vampire called Anthony. He was brutal. He moved around a lot and was an expert at covering up his crimes so the cops couldn’t see the pattern. Even some of the hunters dismissed the killings as those of a psychopathic human. But I knew. It took me about 8 months to track him down, but I did, and then I disposed of him. It was an exhilarating time. I’d say it’s a toss up between that and my collection of first edition books.

8) Do you believe in love at first sight?

Sorry?! At first bite…? Oh, “sight”. Not really. I like to check that girls can go out in daylight before I really fixate on them
9) What is your most treasured possession and why?

I quite like some of my knives, but I wouldn’t say I have a favourite. And I can’t pick between my books – they’re all special in their own way

10) What is your favorite music and who is your favorite singer/band?

I like anything instrumental, as lyrics tend to distract me when I’m out on a job. I quite like lounge jazz – upbeat, but not too distracting.

11) Do you like animals/keep pets?

I tried having a dog once, but it didn’t end well.

12) How do you spend your spare time?

Browsing book shops, sharpening knives, going to the gym, catching up on sleep. I go swimming if I’ve got the time.

13) Where do you see yourself in five years time?

If I’m alive, that’ll be enough for me.

14) Do you believe a cup is half empty or half full?

Probably half full – you can never have too much whiskey or holy water.

15) You have got six months to live, what will you do first?

Go out and kill a vampire. It always makes me feel better and if I’m going down, I’m taking as many of them with me as possible

16) Is sexual compatibility important to you?

Absolutely. Life is short and so precious. You should strive to enjoy every minute.

17) If you won a lottery, how would you spend your millions?

I’d replenish my family’s fortune, maybe buy back our old house. It would be good to have something of the old days around again. I’m a real softy when it comes to nostalgia. And probably buy some more books. And knives. Probably see if I could bribe a local priest as well – save me having to steal all my holy water.

18) If you have friends coming over, what would you cook?

Nothing with garlic! I have enough of that in my day job. Probably a lasagne. That way, if your friends bring more friends, there’s plenty to go round. Okay, maybe with some garlic bread on the side. Just in case.

19) Describe your perfect vacation.

A beach, with white sand and a blue ocean. Somewhere deserted.

20) Are you a morning person or a night person?

Like you even have to ask.


Oooh, Alex, I’m drooling over you! What great answers! Can’t wait to learn more about you in Morwenna Drake’s DARK NIGHTS EMBRACE!
