Dream Casting Seduced by the Vampire King

By Laura Kaye

It’s always fun to fantasize about your book being made into a movie. Imagine the glamour, the red carpet, the big, silver screen! Oh my! You’d wonder how your story might translate to film, and how exciting it would be to see everything come to life. And, of course, you’d wonder just which actors would play your characters.

In my dark paranormal romance, Seduced by the Vampire King, the second in my Vampire Warrior Kings series, the hero is an ancient Russian vampire king named Nikolai Vasilyev. His heroine is an American exchange student studying at the Moscow University for the Humanities named Katherine Bordessa. Here’s more about them, and who I think might play them:

Katherine Bordessa. Here’s Nikolai’s first impression of Kate: Nikolai was completely enthralled by the woman standing before him. Beautiful in her assertiveness. Bravery proven over and again. Wearing so much of his blood he went hard between his legs. She appealed to his body, intrigued his mind. His right hand tingled and twitched. He fisted against the foreign sensation.

Katherine went unsteady on her feet even as her angry words still echoed against the stone walls. Her uncharacteristic display of weakness put him into motion.

He unlocked and opened the door as she turned for the cot, and wrapped a steadying arm around her shoulders before her knees buckled. Nikolai sucked in a breath at the warm feel of her in his arms, at the soft brush of her hair against his hand, at the feminine scent of her skin, infused as it was with the remnants of his blood. Her voice, her touch, her scent—all these he remembered. Now having seen her beautiful face—the long chocolate waves and ice-blue eyes were a killer combination—his memories of the night became clearer and crisper in his mind. He was mesmerized, fascinated.

And who could play Kate? Olivia Wilde, who has Kate’s dark hair and blue eyes combination, which I love!

Nikolai Vasilyev. Here’s Kate’s first impression of Nikolai: Her vampire was standing before her. Conscious. Healthy. More gorgeous than any man she had ever seen. Those eyes. Those bright sapphire eyes. That’s what she noticed first—not just their incredible color, but their haunted intensity, the way she could almost feel them raking over her in return. Golden-blond hair flowed past his broad shoulders, though it wasn’t braided like that of the black-haired warrior who stood at his side.

And who could play Nikolai? You guys, I’m torn! Here are the top picks:

1) Theo Theodoridis (zomg)

2) Brad Pitt (looking very Nikolai-ish here!)

3) Chris Hemsworth (talk about eyes!)

4) Gabriel Aubry (sigh)

So, I need your help! Who would be your pick for my tortured, alpha, Russian vampire warrior king??? One commenter who leaves their email will win an ebook of Seduced by the Vampire King!

Thanks for reading!

Laura Kaye

About the Book:

Book 2: Vampire Warrior Kings Series

American exchange student Kate Bordessa has fled to Russia to escape her family’s hopes that she’ll become one of the Proffered, human women who feed and mate with elite vampire warriors. But when she stumbles upon a wounded vampire in the streets of Moscow, she’s instinctively driven to protect him–and feels an undeniable spark of desire.

Grieving over the deaths of his brothers, Vampire Warrior King Nikolai Vasilyev has thrown himself into battling his enemies, focused only on vengeance. Until the attack that brought him to Kate. Their sexual attraction explodes into a night of uncontrolled passion–a night that marks them as mates. Is their connection strong enough to convince them to embrace a destiny neither of them was expecting?

    Chris Hemsworth is my go to guy for all characters right now. I just love him but your #1, Theo Theodoridis is delicious and could fill the role nicely :).

    Mmm Im thinking either Theo or Gabriel, Brad is too over done and never seen the fascination with him.
    Chris is absolutely gorgeous but not sure if anyone could torture him except in the love department. He looks too tough guy.
    I think my final choice would be Gabriel, such a fitty but got that vulnerable face too.

    Hi Laura,
    thank you for the great giveaway. although i think these are all great choices i have already pictured him in my head as looking more like Viggo Mortenson , the way he looked when he was in Altrista (2006 Spanish mega- movie)about a 17th century spanish soldier or even Eastern Promises(about the Russian Mob)movie made in 2007. Either way he is very, very, hot. :D

    I’d have to go with #4 Gabriel Aubry on your list. I admit I’m not a huge TV show/movie person for that reason I’m clueless. I really liked the first book in this series. Though it was a little short is this one a longer read?
    Thanks for a chance to win! :)

    I’m pretty clueless because I don’t go to movies or watch much TV, but I gotta say, #1 Theo is beyond delicious, and he has that kind of dangerous look that would make him a good vampire king.

    @DeAnna – Good vote! :) This story is only longer by a few hundred words because Harlequin caps the Cravings line at 25,000 words maximum (both of mine are at the very very top of that limit). It’s just how they set it up, which is why the books aren’t longer… Thanks!

    @JenM – “beyond delicious” is a good enough reason! LOL Thanks!

    @erinf1 – Oh, me! I love him too!

    Thanks for all the fun comments guys!

    Chris Hemsworth based on his beautiful eyes! Based on the description, his eyes have it! Runner up is Theo.

    Thanks for all the great comments everyone! Sorry for not responding to some of the ones from earlier in the day – they didn’t appear the other times I refreshed the page – weird! :)

    @Tammy – love Viggo, he’s a great choice for a vampire character!

    Seems like we have a lot of Chris and Theo love going on here. Very nice! You guys are great to play along with me and, you know, perform your civic duty by voting! :D

    Hm…I would pick either Theo or Gabriel for the part of the vampire. They both look sexy to me. Brad Pitt just doesn’t fit the bill, especially since I can’t stand how he ruined ‘Interview with the Vampire’ by being cast as Louis de Pointe du Lac. The Hemsworth one is handsome but not more so than Gabriel or Theo. lol. Can’t wait to read the book!
