Today on the blog we have Stacey Kennedy. She’s an urban fantasy lover at heart, but she also enjoys losing herself in dark and sensual worlds. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who gave her a happily-ever-after. Together, they have two small children who can always make her smile, and who will never be allowed to read Mommy’s books. If she’s not plugging away at a new story, you’ll find her camping, curling up with the latest flick, or obsessing over Sons of Anarchy and Game of Thrones.
In her newest release, WEREWOLVES BE DAMNED, we are introduced to a whole smorgasbord of supernatural characters, but today, she’s here to share the hero in the Magic & Mayhem series.
1. Where is your character from?
He was born and raised in the Otherworld, which is a magical realm that supernaturals can gain access to at St. Andrews castle in Scotland. Of course, there are temporary portals to travel into the Earthworld from the Otherworld, but the castle is a permanent portal.
2. How old is your character?
He’s twenty-eight-years old, but really, who’s counting! Once he turns thirty-years-old, he’ll hit his immortal age and never get a day older. Yes, he’ll always have a six-pack!
3. What is your character called?
4. What does your character look like?
Of course, he’s masculine perfection! He has a thick body chiseled to pure perfection and silky-smooth tanned skin. And his light brown hair softens him a little by hanging messily across his forehead. Plus, just to add to his hotness, he’s always bare-chested, he has a sword strapped to his back, and he wears a dark leather kilt!
5. What kind of childhood did he or she have?
Oh, you know, the typical childhood of a supernatural living in the Otherworld. His days were spent training in combat and learning good sword technique, so he could grow into the guardian he is today.
6. What does your character do for a living?
He’s the elite guardian in the Council’s Guard, which means he’s the best-of-the-best when it comes to guardians. He’s been hired by the leaders of the Otherworld to hunt and destroy supernaturals who take innocent mortal lives. Fun job, right?!
7. How does your character deal with conflict and change?
Kyden is a smooth operator! He’s logical when it comes to most things. He’s fierce and brutal when he needs to be, but there is one thing that changes things for him, which leads into your next question.
8. Does your character have a romantic interest in anyone?
His leading lady is guardian/witch, Nexi. Like I was saying above, Kyden is typically all put together, but when it comes to Nexi’s safety, his temper can flare. It makes his logical mind become not so logical.
9. What is planned for Kyden’s character in future books?
Kyden’s journey throughout the books will be trying to keep Nexi safe. It’s going to put his life in perspective. Things that he thought he knew about himself will change. Yeah, he’s one of those guys who thought he had it all figured out…until a spitfire came and made things messy. Life will get more dangerous and enemies will develop, but he’ll stop at nothing to keep her protected.
Luckily, we get to jump on the kick-ass, crazy ride, too!

Nexi Jones—part witch, part guardian, and wannabe kick-ass warrior—can’t throw a punch or conjure the simplest magic. But that doesn’t stop her from hunting the werewolves who slaughtered her human family. She’ll have her revenge, but only if Kyden, the elite guardian, would get the hell out of her way.
Kyden can’t decide if Nexi wants to get herself killed or if she just has no clue what she’s doing. But her father made it clear: keep Nexi safe…or else. Of course, the more Nexi runs toward revenge, the more she needs Kyden’s aid, and as she grows into her power and confidence, so does his desire to protect her. The only problem? She’d rather he dropped dead.
But when a vampire paints a bull’s-eye on Nexi’s back, she’s hard-pressed to deny Kyden and the help he’s offering. Even if it means getting her revenge will be a little bit harder. At least it will still be as sweet.
