Are you as hooked on paranormal stories as I am, especially romances?
I used to drool over Cole in Charmed. I absolutely loved when Superman made the earth rotate backwards in order to save Lois Lane's life. And don't get me started on all those sexy vampire tales. *sigh*
One of the things that has always captivated me about paranormal tales is the inherent problem in having supernatural powers. Take Superman for example. Kryptonite really screws up his day. Most vamps can't take even a hint of sunlight (Edward Cullen being the exception).
With that in mind, and wanting to explore the more humorous and romantic side of paranormals, I created Freeing the Beast, book one in my Taming the Beast series.
In Freeing the Beast, Becca Salt is the half-witch proprietress of From Crud to Stud, a makeover service for supernatural beings. Poor Becca is a crappy witch, can't make a decent potion to save her life. She ain't having too much fun in her bedroom either. Guys have always let her down, until Eric Diletto, a god (in all ways) comes into her life.
Freeing the Beast was a blast to write - scorching hot and humorous too - in fact, the tagline for it is Magic was never as sexy or as much fun...
The book's on pre-order - at a discount!
I'm running a Rafflecopter contest to celebrate the upcoming release - your chance to WIN THREE EROTIC ROMANCES - choice of 19 titles - contemporary, paranormal, menage, suspense.
Here's the blurb for Freeing the Beast, along with the cover and teasers. Enjoy!
No more Mr. Nice Guy.
Magic is Becca Salt’s business, but it ain’t happening in her bedroom. The half-witch proprietress of From Crud to Stud performs miracle makeovers for paranormal creatures. Once she’s done with them, they’re out the door hunting for hot babes, not hanging around for a too-curvy, plain Jane like her.
Her newest client is hot, hung, mouthwatering perfection. What could she possibly improve upon?
Eric Diletto. Descendant of Cupid, bred for courtship, courtesy, and all that other gentlemanly junk. What has it gotten him? Dumped time and again for bad boys. He needs Becca’s help for an entirely different reason—regression therapy to release his inner beast. Grrrr.
Two potions later, they’re crawling all over each other. Becca aches for a man who loves her as she is, not because he’s under the influence. But Eric isn’t as impaired as she thinks. And he intends to take Becca here, there, and everywhere—anything to convince her his desire isn’t just the potions talking.
A witchdoctor’s nightmare. Contains potions with weird side effects, a sorceress with limited magical skills and a yearning heart, plus a minor god who wants to get down and dirty. Bad, bad boy!
About Me (You know you want to know!):
I’m an award-winning, bestselling novelist in erotic, paranormal, contemporary and historical romance for Samhain Publishing, Ellora’s Cave, Siren Publishing, Booktrope, and Kensington. Yay! Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Romantic Times and numerous online sites have praised my work, and trust me, I’m forever grateful for that. I’ve had my books reach finals in the EPIC competition, one title was named Book of the Year at a review site, and others have won awards in RWA-sponsored contests. I’m actually featured in the 2012 Novel & Short Story Writer’s Market. Talk about feeling like a freaking star. Before my writing career, I was the editor of an award–winning Midwestern newspaper and worked in Story Direction for a Hollywood production company. Outside of being an admitted and unrepentant chocoholic, I’ve flown a single-engine plane (scary stuff), rewired an old house using an electricity for dummies book, and have been known to moan like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally whenever I’m eating anything Mexican or Italian. Yeah, I like to eat (burp).
