Sallie Lundy-Frommer, “I’m thrilled to have this chance to interview you, Sapphira. Everyone seems to think I’m an expert on all things Sapphira, but that isn’t the case. Your fans are anxious to know more about your relationship with Malachi. ”

Sapphira laughs softly, “I suppose they are. I’ll share as much as I can, but some things are for Malachi’s eyes and ears only. And, thanks for having me Sallie, but I have to admit, I’m a little nervous. I’ve never done anything like this before.”

“Not to worry, we’re your admirers and fans, so you’re in safe hands.”

“Thank you.”

“Alrighty then, here we go. Malachi’s and your story has generated more notoriety than any love story in some time. Every time one of your fans writes or calls about you and Malachi, they gush like crazy. So tell me, you two were apart for a long time before finding each other, what really happened? It there more you can tell than what we read, Sapphira?”

“This is hard, really hard to talk about. I wanted to put all this behind me.”

“I know this difficult but your fans really want to know. Go on, it’s okay...”

“We...we were kept apart and it took a long time for Malachi to find me. He...”

“How long did take and what exactly kept you apart, come on...the devil is in the details...”

Sapphira takes a deep sigh before continuing softly, “Death kept us apart or tried to. That is, most people believed I was dead. But, Malachi didn’t, thank God.”

“Oh, that’s so tragic...”

“Yes, yes it is.”

“Okay, neither the fans nor I want to upset you. I see tears in your eyes. Let’s move onto happier times. How did you meet Malachi?”

“Oh, it’s kind of funny and scary. He just showed up like the Holy Ghost. One second I was alone and the next, he was just there. Scared the heck out me, at first I thought he was a home invader. It took him a while to convince me that he wouldn’t hurt me. Then he explained a lot of stuff to me, including what I am, a vampire. It was scary then, but when I think about it now, it’s one of the best days of my life.”

“And you believed him, that you’re a vampire?”

“There’s a lot of back story that you don’t have time for; but yes, after a while, I believed him. It’s hard to explain, but his words triggered something in me. Let’s just say, it was the beginning of my awakening.”

“And, now you’re married. How’s married life?”

“Amazing, sublime, and eventful. The ceremony was like something out of a fantasy. I still can’t believe Malachi is my life mate. He’s been so patient and loving and let’s not forget he is the most beautiful vampire in the world, both inside and out. I guess my prejudice is showing here.”

“Quickly, Sapphira, you said it was eventful. Anything you can share?”

“Ahhhh...too much to be quick. I’ll just say, if it weren’t for Malachi, I wouldn’t have survived our adventures.”

“Well, that’s it, we’re out of time. Sapphira, thanks for stopping by and say hello to Malachi.”

“Thanks for having me, Sallie.”

Yesterday's Daughter
by Sallie Lundy-Frommer

An emotionally laden paranormal vampire romance novel woven with layers of betrayal, love and loss.

Grace Stone, who later learns her true identity is Sapphira, is a loner who survives abuse in the foster care system after being abandoned as a child. A brilliant student, she escapes from her brutal foster parents as a teenager and creates a life for herself. But, her life is little more than existence; plagued with questions about what she really is, a family that she has never known and the never-ending need to keep her differences hidden.

She is alone and lonely, believing it will always remain so until Malachi appears in her life. Malachi, a Guardian of the vampire communities, has searched for his life mate, Sapphira, for decades. He refuses to cease searching for Sapphira even though she is believed dead by all. Conflict arises over the decades between Malachi and his family because of his refusals to accept another mate. But his very soul drives him on to continue his search, knowing that he could not exist if Sapphira were not in the world, somewhere.

      Thanks for stopping by. I remember you from the "Xpresso Reads" stop on this tour. You just finished your fist novel. Congrats again, that's a huge accomplishment.

  9. I love a good vampire love story and it sounds like Sapphira had to go through quite a bit to get her happy ending. I've added this to my Good Reads to read list and I'm going to add it to my wish list.
    Love character interviews and I appreciate the giveaway opportunity.
    GR: Sophia Rose

    1. Hi Sophia,

      Thanks for adding Yesterday's Daughter to your TBR list. I'm glad you enjoyed the interview with Sapphira. It took some convincing to get her to agree to do it.

      Sapphira's life experiences have left her somewhat reticent....:)

      Thanks for stopping by and for your interest in Sapphira and Malachi.

  10. I also love a good vampire story. I have added this to my TBR shelf at Goodreads. This sounds like a great read. Thanks for the giveaway. I follow on GFC and email.

    1. Rachel,

      I love a good vampire story too...:-) I think Yesterday's Daughter falls into that category.

      Thanks for your comments. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by.

  11. Fun interview...beautiful name, Sapphira. I've added 'Yesterday's Daughter' to my Good Reads to-be-read list. This sounds like a very good book. Is it a stand alone...or a series?


    1. Hi Barbara,

      I'm glad you liked the interview. I'll be sure to let Sapphira know. She was a little nervous about the whole thing...:-)

      Stand alone? ..No, I've started writing the sequel....There's so much more to tell.....
