Bewitching Blog Tours: Guest Post with author Lisa Kessler

Hi everyone –

Thanks Kristen for letting me take over your blog today!

It’s late at night here, so I was able to corral the Night Walker himself, Calisto Terana, for a quick interview.

Hi Calisto. Thanks for being here tonight.

You are most welcome. I owe you everything.

*fanning myself* Has anyone ever told you that you’ve got an amazing Spanish accent? *watching a smile pull at the corner of his sexy mouth… ahem* I’ll take that as a yes… Moving on, can you tell the people here who haven’t read your book yet, how you felt the moment you saw Kate again for the first time in over 200 years?

Each year on the evening of Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, I brought fresh cut Romenya flowers to the Mission de Alcala in memory of my beloved Tala. I gave up my soul to the night shortly after her murder, and for over two centuries, I waited for her soul to be reborn.

I must confess that I had given up hope of ever seeing her smile again. *pausing he shakes his head*

But this time it was different?

*nodding* Si. After leaving the flowers at the base of the adobe cross in the courtyard, I noticed a woman slip out the sanctuary door before the Mass ended. She had her arms wrapped around her waist, and sighed as she stared up at the moon.

For a few minutes I stood frozen in the shadows, unable to breathe. The profile of her face looked… familiar. I watched her wander further into the courtyard, closer to me, and wrestled to keep hope at bay. My heart pounded, begging me to speak to her, to see if she finally lived again.

I started to walk away; sure I would only be disappointed again.

But there was something about this woman.

When she knelt to touch the Romneya flowers I left at the cross, my pulse raced. The centuries I endured without her evaporated in an instant. I needed a closer look. Clutching my hands into fists, I steeled my heart for disappointment. I approached her and cleared my throat in an attempt to keep from startling her.

When she sprang to her feet and turned to face me, her cheeks flushed with color, but it was her eyes that caused my heart to stop. In the lower corner of her right iris, I noticed the lighter crescent of color. She had the moon in her eyes.

I fought to keep my hands from trembling, and slowly took in the rest of her face. Her features were familiar, but not exactly as she had once been. Her skin was lighter now and the angle of her jaw softer, but her long black hair and her eyes were unchanged.

Tala lived again. I finally found her.

*dreamy sigh* Did she remember you too?

No. I made a pact that night not to use my powers to read her thoughts, or mesmerize her in any way. Since fate had finally offered me a second chance to love her, I wanted to fall in love with her all over again. I wanted to love the woman she was today and not the memory of who she had once been.

And did it work? *feeling my pulse race the moment he starts to smile*

Ah but I cannot tell you that. The readers need to discover the ending of the story for themselves, no?

*rolling my eyes because I can feel myself blushing* Okay, you’re probably right. Thanks for joining me on the blog, Calisto.

The pleasure is mine, Lisa Kessler.

*trying not to giggle as he takes my hand and presses a quick kiss to my knuckles* See you later! *watching him walk out of the blog*
Shew! Maybe I’ll start interviewing him more often! That accent gets me every time… Anyway, I hope Calisto intrigued you enough to pick up a copy of Night Walker! It’s available in eBook and Trade Paperback just about everywhere.

So do you believe in love at first sight? Could it be that you’ve met before in a past life? I’d love to hear your thoughts! Thanks so much for commenting!


I want to thank Lisa and Calisto for joining us today. I know we all really enjoyed having you  both here.

  1. Hi Kristen -

    THank so much for letting me and Calisto visit your blog! :)

    I hope you enjoy Night Walker!

    Lisa :)

  2. great interview! I do believe in love at 1st site, though it didn't happen to me. It took me a week to fall in love with a man and hid voice lol. My hubby and I met online and started talking on the phone together within 2 days, he said he loved me 3 days later and I fell in love with him 4 days later lol
    We spoke on the phone for 2 months and when we met we were already in love and meeting face to face jut confirmed it. It will be 8 years in April next year :D

  3. That is a super love story Leanne!!!

    Congratulations on 8 years!!! :)

    Lisa :)

  4. Great interview, Lisa. I absolutely believe in love at first sight. The moment my husband first walked into the room I knew he was the one. It took me a while to work up the nerve to tell him I was interested. I'd asked a mutual friend of ours to arrange social gatherings where I could "accidentally" bump into him. Funny enough, he'd approached the same friend with the same plan.

  5. Kinda hot for so early in the morning! (7:37 here ;)

  6. Lisa! That was really fun. Is your hubby jealous of Calisto? ; )

  7. Hi Melanie! *waving*

    That is so cool that you both knew!!! Maybe you've been in love with each other before? Never know, right? LOL

    The Old One told Calisto, "The heart remembers when the mind has forgotten."
