FictionVixen.com is pleased to welcome Blu Masterson and Lord Edouard Credence Saint-Pierre (affectionately known as Creed), to the blog today for a chat. Their incredible love story was told in Her Vampire Husband by author Michele Hauf. You can read Fiction Vixen’s review of Her Vampire Husband HERE.
FV: Hi Creed and Blu, welcome. Can you each tell us a little about yourselves?
Creed: There’s not much to say. I’ve lived a long time. I’ve seen it all. I’ve done it all.
Blu: Yeah, whatever. The dude has walked through history, people. He’s smart, sexy and not so serious at first glance as he would have you believe. (He’s ticklish, but I won’t tell you where.) He doesn’t like to talk about himself, I get that. So let’s talk about me! I am one of few female werewolves because the packs are still trying to come back after a vicious slaying of our kind decades ago. So I’m kinda revered, (but not really in my pack). I love shopping, and color! Did you get that from my green wig? My hubby gave me one of those black credit cards. Do you know they have a million dollar limit? Oh, baby!
FV: Blu, tell us what a day in the life is like married to a 900 year old vampire.
Blu: He is old, isn’t he? But you’d never know it to look at him. Or to wake up in bed next to him. Let’s just say he keeps me busy all night. I don’t get much sleep; but I don’t need much, either. He’s a late sleeper because of the whole sunlight thing (though he can go out during the day; just wears shades and covers his skin). We are newlyweds so we don’t get out of the house much, unless it’s to a nightclub (I drag him out; he would rather spend the evening at home in the theater listening to rock n’ roll). He’s a great dancer, but he likes the slow dances the best. I do, too.
FV: Your turn Creed, what’s an average day living with a feisty werewolf?
Creed: A wonder. I feel blessed every day I wake beside Blu (though most days she’s up before me for a run around the property; on four legs).
FV: There are so many opposites that apply to you as a couple. Fun loving vs. serious, flamboyant vs. conservative, vampire vs. werewolf. You two are a prime example of how opposites attract and how couples can appreciate qualities in a mate that are so different to their own. But there has got to be some pet peeve that just drives you nuts. Let’s hear it.
Blu: Like that sword hanging in his office? Do you know it’s called Wolfsbane? I mean, seriously, I am a wolf. Hello.
Creed: You know it’s just for display now.
Blu: Uhuh. Okay, what about your penchant for a new maid once a week? We cannot keep them any longer because you freak them out or drain them dry. A little restraint, please?
Creed: Well, we can’t talk bad habits without mentioning the smell of cooking meat. Daily! She eats beef and chicken and pork.
Blu: I thought you liked watching me eat?
Creed: I do. <sighs> I could watch you do anything.
FV: Blu, you’ve been described as a spoiled werewolf princess. Honestly after reading your story in Her Vampire Husband, I’d say that’s a misconception. You’ve had it pretty rough and after everything you’ve been through I’d say deserve a little spoiling now. How is your sexy Vampire husband spoiling you these days? Has he taken you shopping in Paris yet?
Blu: <crosses her legs to better display her Louboutins—from Paris—studded in diamonds> Spoiled? Who, me?
FV: What about you Creed, what does your lovely werewolf princess do to keep you happy and well cared for?
Creed: She exists. And she actually loves me. Me. I still can’t believe it some days.
FV: Blu, you change your appearance quite frequently with different colored wigs and interesting costumes. If you could change one thing about Creed, what would it be?
Blu: Wow. He’s just kinda perfect, you know? I don’t even mind the sword all that much. Or the blood drinking. It’s kind of sexy, actually. Watching him drink blood, and then get off on it? Well, you have to be there to know what I mean.
FV: Creed, There is a very sexy scene in Her Vampire Husband in which Blu accompanies you one evening while in search of a blood “donor”. It turned out to be quite an erotic experience and Blu seemed to really enjoy herself. Have the two of you ever spiced things up with a repeat performance?
Creed: Ahem. <looks out the door, wondering when this interview is going to end>
Blu: <whistling guiltily>
FV: Creed, you claimed to have had many crazy nights full of debauchery in the 18th century. If you let loose for one night in present day, what is the first thing you would do? (and it can’t be have sex with Blu!)
Creed: I have been known to live it up with friends (Alexandre Renard), tip back a few whiskeys, and reminiscence about the good old days. Crank up the Rolling Stones, and I’d call that a great evening.
FV: So come on, spill it Creed, how did you come to be in possession of Marie Antoinette’s dress? I sense there’s a good story there? *waggles eyebrows*.
Creed: <now he’s turned completely toward the door, wondering if he could just run out of the room>
Blu: It wasn’t really her dress. Was it?
Creed: <studies the ceiling and wishes the interviewer would stick to favorite colors and past times>
FV: What three words would your Faery best friend Bree use to describe you Blu?
Blu: Sassy. Grrl. And she once told me I was ‘special’ but you know, she must have been tipsy that night.
FV: Blu, now that things have settled down for you a bit, have you been hanging out with other Wicked Games wives? Any good gossip you’d like to share?
Blu: I’ve met Veronica, Alexandre’s chick. Did you know she wanted to stab him with a stake? I love her for having such courage, but am glad she came around. Vampires rock! (Er, don’t tell anyone I said that, okay?)
FV: Hollywood has come knocking on your door and wants to make your story into a movie. You each get to choose what actor will play the other in the movie. Who are your picks?
Blu: Angelina Jolie could so play me. And I’ll pick for Creed because he doesn’t watch movies that much. There’s this sexy French actor, Jean-Hugues Anglade that I saw the other day on some subtitled movie. I don’t understand a lick of French, but I could listen to him speak it all day. Er, I mean, Creed speak it.
Creed: Uh-huh. I told you I don’t know the man, and a ménage—
Blu: <slaps her palm over Creed’s mouth and smiles innocently at the interviewer>
FV: Will either of you be making an appearance in future Wicked Games stories?
Blu: I hope so!
Creed: I believe I am mentioned in SEDUCING THE VAMPIRE. I did take over the Nava tribe in the 18th century from that ineffectual Constantine de Salignac. Glad to know it was noted in a book.
FV: Thank you for being here today Blu and Creed. I wish you both the very best of luck and much happiness in the future.
