Love a Tree, Read an E-book Blog Hop

Dear Annie,

My name is Sugar and I’m the heroine in your latest book Prima. I was considering creating a garden inside of Daedalus’ home but I’m not sure if a sun lamp would burn him. The last thing I want to do is vaporize my vampire lover. What do you suggest?

Dear Sugar,

Technically this is my world so I can make up the rules, but I enjoy basing my laws on fact as much as possible. Easier to remember them that way. ;-) I did a little research so I wouldn’t fry your boyfriend.

Sunlight and artificial light both emit photons but light from the sun emits electromagnetic radiation in a much wider spectrum than that from a bulb. The spectrum can be divided into

• Ultraviolet A, B, and C

• Visible light

• Infrared

I discovered that plants need very little UV light and that UV light produces more energy than plants can handle during photosynthesis. As a result, plants produce pigments to protect them from UV light. These pigments allow only visible light to be absorbed by the plant cells.

This piece of information triggered a memory. In my Angler series, the slayers use UV grenades to fight vampires. I’d done this research before and I’m getting old.

So, yes Sugar, you can use a sun lamp safely around Daedalus since it seems that UV light is what is truly detrimental to vampires and not light itself.

Book Six of The Vanguards series
Releasing April 22nd! (Monday)

Shattered in forgotten memories.

Sugar survived a shifter attack but it left her broken. Paralyzed on the left side, she fights for her independence in her day-to-day life. Her worst injury, the scars on her soul, has her pushing Daedalus away. How could he still love her when she is just a shadow of herself? But a new threat on Daedalus’ life yanks the veil of self-pity from her eyes and she’s resolved to protect him, even precariously balanced with her cane.

The vampire council sends an emissary to Daedalus. His clan brother, another Nosferatu, hands him an ultimatum. Return to his post as Prime in Pal Robi or he’ll kill Sugar and her shifter friends. Daedalus has brought enough trouble into Sugar’s life. He won’t be responsible for more, so he agrees to leave Chicago.

To both warriors surprise, Sugar’s not willing to remain behind, and with her own shifter guards she’s ready to help Daedalus regain control of Pal Robi.
