Saving Their Princess
by TL Reeve | Interview

Q: SAVING THEIR PRINCESS is book #10 in the Beyond Fairytales series. Please give us an overview of the series, and the inspiration for its conception. N:
Okay, a quick run of the series is simple. There is a storyteller, Nicodemus, who for a gold coin will tell you a story. Those are the fairytales we create, but they're not the fairytales you or I read as a child. No, these are souped up retellings made for adults. Check out the Beyond Fairytale Blog...
Prymal Obsession
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: Which is entitled PRYMAL OBSESSION. How are the books interconnected? Do you have an overall series arc?
For those who don't know the premise of the Prymal Series, here's a summary:

The primal call of Mate Claim sparks battle among the three species of shifters--Wylfen, Feral, and Rogue--and has for generations. These violent feuds incite hunts by humankind, driving shifters near extinction.

Dragon Wife
by Diana Green | Interview

Q: What is your inspiration for DRAGON WIFE?
The inspiration for this novel came directly from an amazingly vivid dream. In it, I experienced living in a medieval other-world where dragons had just woken from centuries of enchanted sleep. The hero and heroine were already there, fully-formed, as was my sense of their dynamic relationship.


Love Aced
by Jamie W. Matlock | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for this story?
I'm an avid sports fan--tennis, football, hockey, auto racing. You name it and I probably follow it! I've always enjoyed infusing sports into my stories (And it doesn't hurt that most athletes are in the best shape of their lives, making for sexy leading men and ladies!). That's not to say that everything...
Sapphire Blues
by JC Wardon | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for the series? What is the central theme that holds all the books together?
This thirteen book series actually began as a single story. One book. But there are three mystical identical sisters who are descended of a three thousand year old line they can trace, and a curse all have lived under all those millennia. So Mystic Thunder became the first of a trilogy that includes...

Prymal Lust
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: Please tell us more about the PRYMAL series. What is your inspiration for this series?
A nightmare *nodding convincingly*--cross my heart, yada, yada.

Ever have one of those awful dreams where you're trapped that repeats and repeats no matter how hard you try to change the ending or wake up? I had been reading three genres at once: a Regency, a shifter, and a SEAL suspense.


by Dahlia Donovan | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for the Blackbird Series? What is the common thread among all the books?
IVY (Book 1) was inspired by a crazy dream I had after watching too much Strike Back. The series developed because I wanted to tell the whole story of the Blackbird pack. The main common thread, I suppose, is that the entire series is connected in some way by Ivy herself, though she isn't the main...
The Gull Motel
by Amie Denman | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for this book?
I love to travel, and I find hotels and motels fascinating. I love to stay in fancy resort hotels, but there is something fascinating about those old "mom and pop" places you see along the road. They must have a lot of stories to tell! There really is a motel called The Gull Motel in the town where I...
The Legacy of Buchanan's Crossing
by Rhea Rhodan | Interview

Q: What is your inspiration for this story?
A rough draft of the book's first scene arose during a session using tarot cards as writing prompts. Here's a link to a blog post I wrote about the process:

Cupid's Arrow
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for this story? I believe there are lots of Cupid stories out there. What fresh element did you include here?
The heroine, Stephanie, is a young woman who is cancer survivor and she has a bucket list:

1. Become a sexual person.

2. Have too much wine.

3. Learn how to masturbate.

4. Lose her virginity.

NOT on her list is falling in love.

by Teri Riggs | Interview

Q: RESOLUTIONS is the first book in the Honor Guard series. What's the series about? What connects all the books in the series?
The Honor Guard series is actually the name of a line for Decadent Publishing, mostly featuring hero/heroine who are military, cops, and other high danger types. There are several other authors who write books for the Honor Guard series and they are not connected to RESOLUTIONS. I enjoyed the characters...

Covet, Vegas Sins 2.

But behind the successful entrepreneur façade, Alex struggles with a past that continues to haunt him, day in and day out. After a surprise hookup with a beautiful stranger, he thinks he's found the perfect distraction…until she walks out, leaving him with an unfamiliar ache which the pulse-pounding nights of excess at Covet can't soothe. When their paths cross once again, Alex realizes Dana is so much more than a mere distraction. He wants her—all of her. But having her means he needs to face both her demons…and his own.

Kiss Me, Bite Me — Paranormal Romance
'I'd learned early on in life not to show weakness. Like messy emotions. Shedding tears in front of my family had a similar outcome to busting out of a shark cage wearing blood cologne.' The world hasn't treated Kayana Castello Branco particularly kindly. So it's no surprise to her when she literally bumps into her soul mate, only to find he's already taken. He's gorgeous, strong, smart, kind—every woman's ideal guy. Of course he's unavailable for soul-matey business. When fate shows pity, putting Greg Morgan in her path a second time, the resulting collision is colossal. Their connection is epic, the stuff of romantic legends, fairy tales, sonnets. They're like Romeo and Juliet (only, the R-rated version). But something has happened to Greg. Now, every time he gets near Ana, he gets long and hard…and pointy in the fang area. He doesn't know whether he wants to kiss her, lick her, do-that-thing-that-rhymes-with-duck her. Or bite and deprive her of every last molecule of haemoglobin. Loving a newbie vampire with control issues really and truly sucks. "I enjoyed Kayana and Greg and was pulled into their romance. They were both unlucky in love until they found each other and then it was explosive. There are explicit sex scenes, but they are well written and interwoven into the plot. The author has written realistic and witty dialogue that added to the emotional pull between the characters." –The Romance Reviews

But the growing attraction between Vesta and Henry is just the beginning of their troubles. Things really heat up when they're drawn into a secret project for Queen Victoria's military, one that requires Vesta's knowledge of clockwork and Henry's iron. An epidemic has wiped out all the dogs in Britain, and beyond. If the military fail in their effort to restore the species, a clockwork creation may be all that stands in the way of a world without canine companionship. Are Vesta and Henry up to the challenge? *** A little steampunk fun mixed in with a sweet Victorian Romance!
Jacqui Corleone is a fashion designer, a yoga-instructor and a concerned citizen who selflessly helps the police solve crimes. Oh, and he occasionally turns into a small wild cat. Probably due to a wizard's curse or an evil government plot to create super warriors. Or, he's a cat cursed to turn into a human and only the bite of a sexy alpha lion will allow him to remain in his superior form of Cat. Jacqui does not have a split personality, but sometimes his cat personality can get rather loud. Jacqui Corleone is a cat shifter who doesn't know why or how he turns into a cat. He lives a solitary life in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. He's not afraid of intimacy (yes, he is) but sensibly refrains from potentially awkward entanglements. Unfortunately, the sexy new deputy sheriff just moved in across the street and Jacqui's vow not to get mixed up with island dudes is sorely challenged. When the mysterious disappearance of three blue pots draws Jacqui to investigate, he prowls ever deeper into danger--and into the arms of Deputy Wyatt West (he wishes).

The next morning Quinn's conservative life turns on its ear when Logan introduces her to pleasures she never even considered before. And to make things more complicated, Logan already has a lover.

 Tyson White, ex-pro football player, is completely in love with Logan. He has mixed emotions when Logan brings home Quinn. But the dares keep coming...
