As part of the Impulse blog book tour, hosted by Enchantress of Books Blog Tours, author Dannika Dark is here today to share a little bit about the sexy heroes of her Mageri Series…and yes, there’s also a fabulous tour-wide giveaway. Let’s get started…
This is a great question, because each of my men come with flaws. In fact, there’s one character in “Impulse” that was I certain would rub readers the wrong way, but he’s gained quite a league of fans, even with his sharp tongue and serious demeanor. It seems that each of the men have acquired a group of loyal followers.
None of them are perfect, and perhaps that is the key. Do women like a good challenge? Perhaps.
First, there’s Adam. He’s the protective one, but sometimes overly so. He can be judgmental and a little needy with our protagonist, but we learn why. Some of those needs stem from his broken past, and we feel for him because what he wants in life is a good woman to look after, even if he is blinded by the idea. He’s done bad things in his past, and as a result, he feels like nothing good will come his way in life, and he’s deserving of whatever bad things come his way.
Then there’s Justus De Gradi; damn that man is just one hard shell of a man. He comes across as arrogant, a womanizer, dominant, and serious. Admittedly, those can be ridiculously sexy traits, but the excellent shape of his body, tattoos, and cobalt blue eyes don’t hurt either. He’s not just a Mage, but a Charmer. His energy contains an irresistible magnetic affect on all women who are seduced by his very presence. But there’s no one woman who is worth his time. Ahem. Challenge, anyone?
Of course, then comes Simon Hunt. He’s a dangerously sexy creature with a wicked tongue (pierced, by the way) and a sexy physique in leather pants. He’s dangerously intelligent, loves games, and is probably the most hilarious person you could be around. You know you’re going to have a good time with Simon. But aside from his sexual prowess is a man with a heart. We see glimpses of it and we know that he’s a good man beneath it all.
Logan Cross is a man with a sketchy past. His past was fueled on revenge and he does not apologize for the men he’s hunted and killed. At almost six-and-a-half feet tall, he will make you wince the moment you look into his golden eyes. Can he be trusted? And this is a man who has become one of the most beloved characters in the series.
What makes these men irresistible is something aside from looks, money, or power. They are all broken in some way. They have become who they are through the events of their past (or see glimpses that they’ve been through something painful), and as we discover these facts, we feel more connected with them.
What draws us to a character ultimately is not often perfection, but imperfection.
Almost one year ago, a Mage attacked Silver and changed the course of her destiny.Immortals exist, and now she is one of them.Within the dark and supernatural city of Cognito, Silver is living under the watchful eye of her Ghuardian and dating her mortal enemy.

As rival factions struggle to gain control, she finds herself in the middle of a centuries-old feud that threatens to drive a wedge between her and Logan Cross, the man who intends to seduce her.In an explosive turn of events, one life is saved and another is forever altered. Can Silver trust those around her, or are they hiding a dark secret of their own?
