Ask Five with....SHARON PAGE!!!

Here's another treat for you...an interview with Sharon Page ! 1. What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? My latest release is called Blood Rose, and it came out in early August from Kensington’s Aphrodisia line. Here’s a bit of the blurb: Serena Lark’s erotic dreams of vampires are so vivid, so intense…could she be one? Drake Swift and Lord Sommersby, two daring vampire hunters, might know the truth about her past—and her future. The trio searches the dark streets of London for answers. She cannot say no when Sommersby and Drake introduce her to another existence entirely, one in which only extraordinary sensual pleasure matters—and Serena opens herself up to compelling desire… I loved writing Blood Rose as it was a complex and challenging story, and I like to think it’s very erotic. It’s a menage story with a happily ever after ending. One of my heroes, Drake, is an ex-thief from London’s slums, cocky and reckless, but also emotionally scarred by his

DOMINANT TERRITORY - Cora Zane Werekind, Book 3 Cobblestone Press - www.cobblestone-press.com ISBN: 978-1-60088-149-7 July 2007 Erotic Paranormal Romance - Short Story The small town of Silver and the surrounding area, Dover County - Present Day While celebrating her newfound freedom from her cheating, lying, ex-husband Mark, Libby French and her friends decide to visit an out of the way bar called the Moonlight Run. It turns out the place is a biker bar, and the bikers are werewolves. Hmm, this might not be the best place for a group of single human women to hang out, especially when one of them, Libby, has already been picked out by a werekind named Drake Logan as a potential mate. But, on the other hand, if Libby can wrap her mind around the concept that werewolves, or at least one werewolf in particular, are way more appealing than any human males that she’s met lately, or ever, she may just celebrate this night forever. Drake Logan nearly ditched his bike the first time he s

Ask Five with....SIDNEY CROFT!!!!

Image
Sidney Croft is a brand new author name for two authors who have combined their writing talents. Since they are new, I thought I'd post the bio blurb from their website at http://www.sydneycroft.com/index.php : Sydney Croft is the alter-ego of two published authors who came together to blend their very different writing interests into adventurous tales of erotic paranormal fiction. Together, they developed a world where people with extraordinary abilities, like the power to control storms, could live and work with others like them. The series has been described as "Erotica meets the X-Men," and is unique in its own "super hero romance" niche. The authors behind Sydney Croft live in different states and communicate almost entirely through email, though they often get together for conferences and book signings. Now that you know a little about them, it's time to meet them! 1. What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? The novel is

Ask Five with....JANET MULLANY!!!

Today we have Janet Mullany as our guest! She has a book out this month and also writes as Jane Lockwood. Definitely a multi-faceted writer! Get to know...Janet Mullany: What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? My book is The Rules of Gentility (Avon A) and I define it as a Regency chicklit. It’s about a husband-hunting fashionista heiress in Regency London. I started writing it as a joke and for my own comic relief, --a sort of Regency Bridget Jones’s Diary--after I’d finished a doom, gloom Regency-set (as yet unpublished). I also let rip with my own brand of humor and that was a lot of fun. It’s an affectionate spoof of Regency-sets but at the same time I think it’s the most romantic thing I’ve ever written. My editor, though, swears it isn’t a romance, which I find rather confusing, as I thought with this one I’d cracked the romance code. What is the hardest part of writing? Just doing it. Finding excuses to get off the Internet and stop Googling your

Wow, Susan Grant has some sexy Extraterrestrials! If you haven't read her "ET" books, then what are you waiting for? Crazy Mo calls Susan's latest book "awesome!" I know it's on my tbb list! Sit back and get to know...Susan Grant! 1. What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? It’s called How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 Days. It’s the third book in the light-hearted Otherworldly Men series concerning a California political family (think: the Kennedys) and the alien invasion they must thwart. “ET,” however, takes a more serious turn due to some of the subject matter. Reef, the newly dismantled bio-engineered assassin from book 1 and 2 must finish his rehabilitation as a normal human in the home of a suburban single mom and her two children. I feel it stands alone well because I wrote it to be that way. A cool fact about this book: In the beginning of writing the series, I never dreamed Reef would be a hero. Hell,
