Brenda Dyer, It’s Paranormal Time!

Please welcome erotic romance author Brenda Dyer.  Brenda writes romance in the paranormal genre.  She just released book two of her Prophecy’s child series.  I love the quote that Brenda has under her signature name…”True love takes courage and sacrifice.”  That’s what I enjoy most about erotic romance.  The HEA is always a struggle, a long journey, full of angst.  Like a intense round of good sex though, when it comes. damn it’s satisfying!  I’ll never understand the critics that turn up their nose at erotic romance.  I’ve never read anything so powerful.  Proof in point, read on about Brenda’s incredibly imaginative new release.

Blurb:

His secret will shatter her world.

Katherine Colby’s life splintered ten years ago when her lover suddenly vanished, leaving her with more than a broken heart. But when Kal unexpectedly makes an appearance, her safe, dependable existence is shattered once more. Drawn into Kal’s deadly world of vampires and demons, she must now put aside her hurt and anger and learn to trust him. Can she forgive past deceptions and find the courage to love again? Or will she turn away the one man who owns her heart and soul?

Her secret will change his life.

Powerful, and lethal, Kal is a vampire warrior, sworn to protect humans from demons. Loving Katherine too much to pull her into his dangerous world, Kal deserted her, believing his decision was best for them both. But not even time could assuage his yearning for the woman who has captured his heart. As fate tosses them together once again, Kal must fight to win Katherine’s trust and forgiveness before ev separates them forever. But is he ready to become the man she needs him to be? Or will he lose the one woman he can’t live without?

Brenda sent me something very creative.  I always let the author dictate how they want their visit to go.  Some like traditional interview questions.  Others like contests and special themes.  Brenda sent me a post of her interviewing one of her characters.  It’s awesome and I know you will enjoy it! 

Here’s the post:

Kal uncensored

Thank you so much Kate for having Kal and I on your site today.

 

Brenda:  Hello, Kal. I’m glad you could make it. I know how busy you are.

Kal: Thanks for having me. I can’t stay long. Have to meet Mel and Soren at The Green Tree then head out demon hunting.

Brenda: *smiles* I understand. I know we can’t say much in case we give some of the book away, but how’s Katherine doing? How’s Ike?

Kal: They’re doing very well–thanks for asking.

Brenda: Glad to hear it. Tell them I said hi.

Kal: Will do.

Brenda: So, during the writing of Prophecy’s Child, was there a time where you thought you and Katherine wouldn’t end up together?

Kal: Yeah. I wasn’t sure after the demon got his filthy hands on Katherine and Ike. I thought that was it for us all. I thought for sure my plan wouldn’t work.

Brenda: *Laughs* Nice to know you had such little faith in me.

Kal: *Laughs back* Nah, not in you, in myself.

Brenda:  I’m going to change gears here if that’s okay?

Mel: Sure. You’re the interviewer.

Brenda: How shocked were you to find out you had a child?

Kal: Man, I can’t even put it into words. It was like a punch to the stomach—well, that makes it sound like I wasn’t happy, because I was. I guess on a scale of one to ten—ten being massively shocked—I’d have to say ten.

Brenda: *laughs* Yeah, you did seem pretty shocked. What about your mother? How are things between her and Katherine now?

Kal: *Shrugs* Still a little tense. Things are definitely better than they were at first, but yeah, still some tension. We took a trip to visit my mom in France after Katherine and I got married. It went okay, but…yeah, there was a shitload of tension. *Chuckles.* Maybe one day Katherine and my mom will be closer. My mother spoiled the crap out of Ike though.

Brenda: I hope Katherine and your mother do become closer one day. I think it would be good for Katherine, you know, because of how things are with her parents. And speaking of her parents…any news there?

Kal: Nope, which pisses me off. Katherine sent them a letter as you know, but still no reply. Kat doesn’t seem to be bothered by it.

Brenda: I guess Katherine sort of figured they wouldn’t reply. Personally, if my parents did to me what Katherine’s parents did to her, I’d never forgive them—but that’s just me.

Kal: Same here. A part of me hopes I never meet then ‘cause I’m not sure what I’d do—but I’ll tell ya, it won’t be pretty.

Brenda: So, any more news on Ike’s special abilities?

Kal: *Winks* You know I can’t tell you. You’ll have to wait to find out.

Brenda: *Laughs* Not even a small hint?

Kal: *Laughs back* Nope.

Brenda: Okay, moving on. Ike’s the only child at the base—until Mel and Breeana’s baby is born, that is. So, how is that going? How are the other warriors handling having a child around? Have there been any problems?

Kal: Well, Katherine caught Ike swearing a few nights ago. Not saying that’s because of living at the base with a pack of male vampire warriors, but hey, we all tend to forget ourselves and use language we shouldn’t. And like I said to Kat, the kids at school probably swear—I know I did at his age. I just made sure I didn’t swear around my parents or other adults. *Laughs* But other than that incident, things have been very smooth. *Kal frowns and then chuckles.* Actually, as weird as this may sound, Ike and Ace have become quite good friends. They spend a lot of time playing cards: Crazy Eight, War, even Old Maid. And Ace taught Ike how to play poker. Katherine’s not thrilled about that, but she sees how much Ike likes hangin’ with Ace.

Brenda: Are you serious? Ace? Wow, that…*Laughs.* Of all the slayers stationed there, I never would have thought Ace would have the patience to spend time with a ten year old.

Kal: Totally mental, right? I mean, Ace? *Laughs and shakes his head.*

Brenda: How’s Ike doing in school?

Kal: Good. The kid’s a brain. He must get that from Katherine because he sure as shit doesn’t get it from me. I wasn’t the best in school.

Brenda: Well, before we go, is there anything else you would like to say?

Kal: Nah, not really. *Glances at his wrist watch.* I better split. Mel and Soren are waitin’ for me.

Brenda: Kal, it’s been a pleasure. I won’t hold you up any longer. Say hi to Katherine, Ike and the other warriors for me.

Kal: * Shakes Brenda’s hand* Will do, and thanks. Had a blast.

Brenda: I would like to interview Katherine soon. I’ll call and set up a time.

Kal: Sounds good. I’ll let her know.

Kal: Thanks, Kate. *Flashes a smile, then winks.*

Anne Lange is worth the risk!

Welcome to another sinful Saturday.  I’m excited to host erotic romance author, Anne Lange.  I first stumbled upon Anne’s name as a recommendation.  I went on her website and LOVED the quote under her name…”Check your inhibitions at the door.”  I’ve never met Anne personally but I already feel a kinship.  I “think” we’re about the same age (I’ll never tell!).  She discovered writing later in the life like me.  She’s a busy working mom with a job outside of writing like me!  Plus we both write contemporary romance.  The best part of this blog is meeting new and exciting authors.   Anne’s newest release, Friends with Benefits, will be out soon.  In the meantime, read on about her sexy novella, Worth the Risk.

worththerisk

Please tell us about your current release (If you want to just provide the blurb here, that’s fine.  Otherwise, I can post the blurb at the end, under the cover image of your book.

My current release is Worth the Risk. It’s a novella, a contemporary erotic romance.  It’s my very first published story.  Worth the Risk was released in January of this year through Etopia Press.

 

How did you come up with the idea for your book?

I actually wrote it in response to a publisher’s call for Canadian based themes. Since I’m Canadian, I though “hey, I can do this.”   It’s set in the Ottawa Valley, in Ontario, around our May long weekend.  It’s a reunion story about two people who grew up together, fell in love, separated and then found each other again.  The separation was due to some tragic circumstances, but they manage to forgive (I think the hot sex helped) and eventually they decide on their future.  But it wasn’t easy.

Can you tell us about the journey that led you to write your book?

Well, I’ve been writing for about four years now.  I’ve always read like there was a world-wide plan to stop selling books tomorrow and finally decided to give it a try myself.  I had tried once, years ago, but the attempt did not work – very clichéd, you know “it was a dark and stormy night” type of cliché.  LOL.  So, older, wiser, more attune to what actually might sound good, and willing to take classes to figure out what was required, I set out to try again.  And, I found I really liked it. A lot.  This time around, it didn’t sound half bad.

I started writing a few stories based on some submission calls I saw that interested me.  And as part of a few classes I was taking, I worked on editing and polishing my one story. It was rejected by the publisher I initially wrote it for, but I did receive some very good feedback from the editor.  After a few other rejections, on a whim, I pitched it to an editor for Etopia Press who asked to see the whole manuscript, and a couple of weeks later I had an offer.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?

First, stepping back, and with a critical eye trying to determine what an editor might like or not like, without playing favorite to any one part, paragraph, sentence, word etc.  Then knowing when to stop tweaking and just submit it.  Hitting SEND is the hardest thing to do.  Then crossing my fingers and trying to forget about all the other things I probably should have fixed.

What would you say in your most interesting writing quirk?

I don’t really have one.  I wish I could say I dress in sexy lingerie or, drink a bottle of wine and surround myself in scented candles.  But, no, nothing like that.  The oddest thing I can think of is that I don’t typically write the story in order.  I start out in order, go till I head a block and then I start writing in scenes.  Then I piece it together.  Sort of like a movie.

Do you have plans for any subsequent books?

There won’t be any sequels to this particular story, but I do have many other projects in various stages of completion from preliminary planning to full-out completed drafts, including another standalone novella, a full length story, a short story and two series.   That’s my workplan for the next twelve months.

Please tell us your latest news

Ah, well, I’m very happy to say that my newest release is coming out very soon, hopefully later this month (in about one week if all goes well J).  It’s called Friends with Benefits and is another contemporary erotic romance – a ménage. It’s the first in a four-book series.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

To those who have already purchased and read Worth the Risk, thank you.  I truly appreciate you taking a risk on me as a new author and taking the time and spending the money to read my book.   I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did writing it.  It involved a personal experience for me, so that particular book means quite a lot to me.  And, for those who haven’t yet, I hope you do and I hope you like it. It’s a short quick read; so it won’t take up too much of your time.   And finally, I hope readers will consider my next release for their TBR pile, and the other stories that follow.  I’m really enjoying these new stories,  they’re edgy but still romantic, and always a happily ever after.

Thank you Anne for visiting today.

Author D.X. Luc Loves Being Naughty

Welcome to another Sinful Saturday.  Today, I have DX Luc telling us about her newest release, Hunters of Seraphim.  This is an incredible original novel.  It is set in the future where women dominate the world.  What happens when you want a man to be in control?  Especially in the areas of, ahem…the bedroom.  Read on about this intriguing concept:

Hunters of Seraphim: Jadin

 

Blurb: In the year 4411, females dominate the world. Men are now the weaker sex and all roles have been reversed.
Angela is an accomplished defense attorney and has grown up in a world dominated by women but she craves something more. She secretly yearns for a strong dominant man…not a simpering wimp.
Nestled on an island far from the world Angela knows are a group of mighty male Hunters. They’re strong, dominate and sexy and each Hunter is waiting for the goddess Seraphim to grant him his mate.
After waking from a drug induced sleep, Angela finds herself on this jungle island, playing a game of cat and mouse with Jadin… the sexiest man she’s ever seen. He claims she’s his, but she wants the right to choose. Will Angela be able to give into her hearts desires or will a lifetime of embedded teachings prevent her from having the man of her dreams?

Excerpt:

“I assure you, I want nothing to do with Lydia. I’ve told her this many times and yet…she still doesn’t get it.”

“Oh, she’s got all kinds of hots for you, Jadin. Not that I blame her.” Angela chuckled. “She threatened me not long ago. Told me that I wasn’t good enough for you. Man, is she going to give it to me for actually snagging you.”

“I’ll have a chat with Travis and Kefir. She’s starting to become an embarrassment to not only her husband, but also herself.”

Angela waved her hand. “It’s really not a big deal. She’s probably all talk.”

“Hardly. You don’t know her. She may be cute and small, but she’s by no means cuddly.”

“What do you mean she’s ‘cute’?” That was the only thing the woman heard? Tilting his head, he saw fire snapping in her brown eyes. “Just as I said.” Jadin gave her an innocent glance, his woman’s cheeks were red with her growing jealousy. It turned him on something fierce. He lay back against the pillows and languidly stroked his stiffening cock.

“You think Lydia is pretty?” Angela hissed.

“Of course. She’s got a nice ass and perky breasts.”

Angela crawled over to here he rested, moving up his body until she straddled his hips. “Is that so? You’ve looked at her that much have you? Next—you’ll be telling me you’ve seen her naked!”

“Yes. Once we bathed together in the lake.” The mischievousness in his voice was thick and Jadin knew she heard it.

“Oh, hell no! I’m the only woman you’ll see naked from now on, buddy!” She impaled her pussy onto his waiting hardness. Jadin sucked in a huge gust of air. All wet and hot, she dug her nails into his chest, riding him with abandon.

He growled, rolling her under him, matching her frantic movements with his thrusts. Her body arched, as she offered him a dusky peach nipple and he took it, suckling as she cried out his name. Her walls trembled around him the aftershocks rippling when Angela came down from her orgasm, fueling him to go on. Lifting his head, he stared into her brown depths. “Keep coming for me, Angela. I won’t stop until you pass out from this.” He drew back, then pounded his hips into her, causing her to scream. “That’s right, woman. Show me why you were given to me and me alone.”

About D.X. Luc:

 

An avid reader since I was a child, I never found a book I disliked. Mostly, you could find me lost in Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, or Ernest Hemingway, and my most favorite, Ancient Greek literature. Taking my love of books, I started writing poetry, short stories, and even helped with screen writes for my drama club.

By the time I was in my teens, my older sister introduced me to my first romance novel, The Hawk and the Dove by Virginia Henley. The moment I fell into the world of love, I was hooked, and my addiction for more grew until I found myself delving deeper into the erotic.

After being convinced that I had the skills to try my hand at writing, I went to work on my first story Down the Yellow Brick Road: Finding Home. And since being published, I’ve not looked back.

Now, as a busy mom of three, that homeschools, drives to activities, and manages to find time to just take a breath, I have to say, I love being naughty when I get the chance. It’s freeing and I wouldn’t want it any other way!
