Fiction Vixen is pleased to welcome Stephanie Chong, author of Where Demon’s Fear To Tread.
If your book were made into a movie, which actors would you cast in the roles?
The Heroine: Serena St. Clair
Guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair left her own human life at just twenty-three years old. Now returned to earth to guide humans, Serena is innocent, gentle and full of optimism.
I would love to see Jennifer Lawrence in this role. She’s such a talented actor, and was superb in Winter’s Bone. I can’t wait to see her as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. I love those books.
Alternatively, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, who took over as the female lead in Transformers 3. She was a former Victoria’s Secret model and has already worn angel wings – maybe that’s why I picture her in this role.
The Hero: Julian Ascher
Archdemon Julian Ascher owns an empire of nightclubs. Which he uses to lure humans into their greatest moments of weakness and desperation, of fantasy and desire. A connoisseur of pleasure, Julian loves destroying beautiful woman for the sheer joy of ruining the sublime.
As Julian, I’d love to see Henry Cavill, who was Charles Brandon in The Tudors. Cavill is starring in the new Superman movie, and I’m looking forward to his take on that iconic character.
Or else Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon in The Vampire Diaries. He’s got smoldering down to an art. He has a great chemistry with Nina Dobrov, and I think he’d make a great Julian.
While there’s no movie in the works for Where Demons Fear to Tread, there is a book trailer!
About the book:
Fledgling guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares enter Devil’s Paradise nightclub on a mission – to retrieve the wayward Hollywood “It Boy” she’s assigned to protect. But she’s ambushed by the club’s owner, Archdemon Julian Ascher. The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure-seeking humans. He won’t release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard. Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…
After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again. Yet this sexy-sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries-old feelings. Now, their high-stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell…or a deliciously hot heaven.
