Character Interview: Immortals Series' Damen Auguste

I'm thrilled to have Damen Auguste, the gorgeous, exotic, and wealthy immortal from the NY Times Best Selller Immortals series with us today to answer some questions.

Please welcome Damen everyone!

What do you think the secret to true love is?
A true and lasting connecting of souls.
It’s so easy to get caught up in looks and image and stuff like that—trust me, I’ve done it myself! But when two people compliment each other, bring out the best in each other, learn and grow together, and are just overall meant for each other—well, after six hundred years of roaming the earth, I can honestly say that is the most beautiful thing the universe has to offer.

Do you notice how girls are constantly ogling at you, how does that make you feel?
Well, I try not to pay too much attention to it since it’s more about the outer me—you know, the hair, the clothes, the house, the car, stuff like that. It has nothing to do with who I really am—only Ever sees that.

When you first saw Ever, what was the first thing that came to your mind?
The very first time I looked into her eyes, back when she was working as a servant at a friend’s house in Paris, I knew my life would never be the same. And it wasn’t just her undeniable beauty and quiet inner strength that moved me, I felt connected to her—a strange familiarity that’s hard to explain. All I know is that from that moment on, I knew we belonged together, and it felt like my life had finally begun.

What do you love most about Summerland?
I love everything about Summerland—it is promise and beauty in its purest form. The representation of our very best side, all the good we have to offer as people. And if we could just find a way to overcome our prejudices, hatred, negativity, and fears, I’ve no doubt we could create our own Summerland right here on Earth.

What’s the craziest or funniest moment that you had with Ever?

Well, there was a little mishap recently at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles—let’s just say we had a close call that you can read about in SHADOWLAND. And while I’m not sure Ever thought it was nearly as funny as I did—or at least not at the time—after the fact we both had a good laugh!

What would you consider the perfect date?
Well, after six hundred years I’ve pretty much seen and done it all, but I have to say that being with Ever again makes it all feel brand new. Disneyland was fun, the racetrack was fun, and the fact that it’s all new to her let’s me see it in a fresh, new way too. I’m working on the perfect date for her birthday . . . but for now, it’s still just a work in progress . . .

I think all the girls want to know this, but you totally don’t have to answer – Umm... Boxers or Briefs?
The truth is, I’ve tried ‘em all through the years, but these days I’m partial to the boxer brief.

What’s next for you and Ever?
Well, we still have to break this curse so that we can touch each other again, and though we have an eternity to figure it out, I’m really hoping it won’t take near that long—it’s kind of driving me crazy!

Thanks Damen!
