Awakening 3 by Jeanie Grey: Character Interview & Giveaway

Genres: Science Fiction Vampire Romance; Paranormal Romance; Paranormal Erotica

Short Description: A suspenseful science fiction vampire romance, Awakening 3 is the final book in the Lilly Frank trilogy. Intended for readers 18+.


Nearly fifty years after the events of Awakening 2, Lilly decides to stop running away and returns to Italy only to find the threat of a vampire civil war growing. With the help of Beth, Carrie and Jamie, Lilly learns how to face her feelings about her tragic past and to accept that, whether Torren wants her or not, her heart wants him. But when she finds Torren in Rome, not only is he still with Vittoria, he doesn’t seem to remember Lilly at all.

Can Lilly convince Torren to leave Vittoria to be with her and help the Organization find a peaceful solution to the conflict, or will Vittoria and a vampire war come between Torren and Lilly and their happily ever after?

“I’m just trying to understand…was she always like this?” Lilly asked.
“Like what?” Torren said, genuinely confused.
“So…selfish and self-serving. I mean, was she different as a human? Is that why you fell in love with her?”
Torren sat up, struggling to maintain his temper, reminding himself that Lilly had very limited experience with Vittoria. “Lilly, I realize that what you’ve seen of Vittoria has not given you a very good impression of her, but I have known her for a very long time. She is a good person, if a bit impulsive. She cares for me deeply, and it was her love for me that led her to try to ease my suffering. I’m not saying she was right to do what she did, but she certainly isn’t unfeeling.”
Lilly softened immediately. “Oh, I’m so sorry, Torren. I shouldn’t have said that. I can tell that you care deeply for her.”
Somewhat mollified, Torren settled back against the pillows again. He took Lilly’s hand and kissed her knuckles. “Apology accepted,” he said. “Thank you.”
She settled back against him and ran her hand over his chest to his bicep. “I can only imagine how hard this decision must have been for you. I want you to know that I’m truly grateful. You won’t be sorry.”
Torren stilled, trying to understand what Lilly was talking about. “What?”
“I just mean that, given your history and how much you care for her, it must have been hard to leave her and come here.”
“Not really,” he said, still not getting it. “She was out when I left.”
“Oh! Did you leave a note or something?”
“Yes, I let her know I was coming here and didn’t know when I’d be home.”
It was Lilly’s turn to pause. “Home to collect your things, you mean?”
“What?” he repeated.
Lilly sat up and looked down at him, doubt welling in her eyes. He sat up too and studied her.
“When are you going to tell her?” she said carefully.
“Tell her what?” Torren replied, and only then did he begin to guess what she meant. Her next words confirmed it.

“When are you going to tell Vittoria that you are leaving her for me?”

Character Interview:

Please welcome Vittoria Rosa​ from  Jeanie Grey​'s Awakening 3 to Diane's Book Blog.

What is your name?Vittoria Rosa​

Do you have a nickname?​ 

No. I would like for someone to call me Tori, but Torren and Lilly are difficult to train.​ *laughs*

What is your hair color? Eye color? 

​My hair is very dark brown and curly. My eyes too are very dark brown. Almost black.​ 

How old are you?​ 

I was born in 1599. I was 28 - almost 29 - when I became a vampire in 1628. 

Where were you born? Where have you lived since then? ​ 

I was born in a little village about 30km outside of Rome. Since then I have lived in many places, but mostly different places in Italy.​

Where do you currently call home? ​ 

I live in an apartment in Nuova Roma​ with [spoiler removed]. 

What is your most treasured possession?​ 

My mother's necklace.​ Over the years I have had to replace the ribbon many times, but the pendant is the same. It is a yellow...how you say? Tiger's eye. A yellow Tiger's eye stone in a gold setting. It was in her family for a very long time. It was the only thing of value she owned, and she never sold it, even when we desperately needed the money. Because it is so old I do not wear it very often, but I look at it daily and think of my mother.

What or who is the greatest love of your life? ​ 

Of course he is Giovanni - I mean Torren. 

What ​is the best part about coming back for a sequel?​ 

I like that I have a chance to show people who I really am. In Book 2 I was not myself and I think people get the wrong ideas about me, but now they will get to know the true me. What is your greatest regret?​ 

I do not believe in regret. I believe in admitting mistakes and moving on.​

What is your motto? ​ 

Live for this moment. That is all you have.​
