Today I’m interviewing quite a special guest – a cuelebre, which is a small winged serpent. If that doesn’t strike your curiosity, then I don’t know what will! Enjoy the interview!

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Yesss. I am a cuelebre. For thossse of you unfamiliar with my homeland, I am a sssmall winged ssserpent.


What is your role in the story?
In thisss ssstory, I played the part of Eurydiccce’sss agent of change. Being a hamadryad, Eurydiccce isssn’t exactly mobile, and ssso ssshe asssked me if I would mind overssseeing Patricccio and Marcccela’sss meeting. It wasss my job to make cccertain thingsss moved along toward a happy ending. You might sssay I wasss the fairy godfather. I did an excccellent job.

 

What is your favorite hobby?
I like to obssserve. Having had a tassste of helping people lesssssss perccceptive than I, I’ve decccided to help othersss asss well.

If you could make one wish, what would it be?

The naga lord I am watching now hasss the ability to take on human form (or he did before the curssse). I think I would like to have more than one form. Who knowsss? Legsss could be ussseful.

About Divine Scales

DivineScales 500x750Title: Divine Scales

Author: Jennifer Blackstream

Genre: Fantasy Romance

A warrior with a hunger for sin . . .

Driven by a terrible hunger for the black souls of evil men, Patricio, divine executioner of the gods, patrols the kingdom with blood on his hands and ice in his heart. The families of his victims sing his praises–the result of a witch’s cruel curse that condemns him to be forever surrounded by false adulation. When the curse sours the first hint at romance Patricio has had since becoming the king’s heir, his rage is all consuming. Disgusted, he leaves the mermaid in the sea and returns to the palace…only to be shocked when she bargains for the legs to follow him.

A mermaid out of her element . . .

Marcela’s world has been turned upside-down–literally. Once a proud member of her father King Triton’s royal guard, she’s now the victim of an angel’s curse. Enchanted into false adoration bordering on obsession, she traded her tail–and her voice–to the sea witch for the legs she needed to pursue the object of her desire. In a cruel twist of fate, the very magic that gave her the means to pursue her passion also broke the spell that caused it. Now she’s in the angel’s arms, but how can either of them trust the desire churning inside them when so much magic has muddied the waters?

Trust isn’t easy when nothing is as it seems . . .

A mermaid with legs and no singing voice. An angel with a curse. A witch with a chip on her shoulder. The world is full of magic and mayhem, and for an angel and a mermaid, it will take more than a kiss to balance…the Divine Scales.

Character Interview A Bridge Through Time

21 Nov

bridgetimebanner

Today I’m interviewing one of the main characters of time travel romance “A Bridge Through Time”, Ashley Moore. I hope you all enjoy the interview!

Can you tell us a little about yourself?
 
Of course, but first I’d like to thank you for having me here.  My name is Ashley Moore and I was born and raised in San Francisco, California.  I’ve always been a bit of a homebody, but lately I’ve been trying to step outside of my comfort zone.  I love horses.  My mother signed me up for lessons when I was quite young and it’s been a lifelong love affair ever since.  My friends will tell you, I’m a bit of a chatterbox and I guess it’s true.  I do tend to ramble, especially when I’m nervous.  I love children and was a teacher for a little while.
What is your role in the story?
As the main character in A Bridge Through Time,  I’m in search of  a grey eyed stranger, and that search leads me to Scotland where I end up in the sixteenth century.  I meet some amazing people along the way – some good and some bad.   I have quite the adventure.

What is your favorite hobby?
 
As I mentioned before,  I love horseback riding, but I also enjoy all kinds of crafty things.   I like to sew, knit, glue things together…  just about any craft you can think of, I’ve tried.

What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?
 
I’m learning to be brave, to try new things and to trust enough to give love another chance.   You see, my life wasn’t going the way I had imagined it would.  I was dumped by the only guy I’d ever loved, I lost my job and my apartment.  I just had to pick myself up and do something about it, especially after I started seeing a very handsome Highlander everywhere I went.  I didn’t know who he was or why I was seeing him, especially when no one else could.  I had to do something about it.  I had to prove to myself that I wasn’t losing my mind.  Also, I wanted a chance at a new life.  One filled with love and family.

If you could make one wish, what would it be?
 
That’s a tough one.  I feel like all of my wishes have already come true,  except one.  I’d really like to see my friend Jenna again.

About The Book

A Bridge Through Time BTitle: A Bridge Through Time

Author: Jennae Vale

Genre: Time Travel Romance

Ashley Moore’s life in San Francisco has hit a few snags, not the least of which involves sightings of a mystery man around every corner.  Is she losing her mind or does he really exist?   Her search for this grey-eyed stranger leads her to  Scotland. There she meets a witch with a secret, a vindictive English knight who is bent on revenge, and she crosses a fog shrouded bridge into the arms of a 16th century Highlander.

Cailin MacBayne is no stranger to beautiful women, but has always managed to stay one step ahead of commitment.  That all comes to an end when he meets Ashley.  He doesn’t care where this beautiful, yet unusual lass came from, he’s just happy to have found her.  Ashley cannot resist the handsome Scot and finds herself falling hopelessly in love.  In the process, a secret is revealed, a battle is waged and Ashley must ultimately decide whether to return to her own time or give up her 21st century life to stay with the love she has found in the past.

She has worn many hats over the years.  From owning her own typing service and horse training/boarding facility, to operating an embroidery/t-shirt business, her entrepreneurial spirit was strong and thriving. Determined to do something she truly loved, her vivid imagination took over again and she decided to follow her literary dream of writing stories that tapped into her love of magnificent people and places.

 Jennae now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, where they’ve raised two beautiful and talented children.  Along the way they’ve gathered a menagerie of pets, including one dog, three cats and 4 chickens to make the family complete.

Character Interview One Last Hold Tour

16 Nov

onelastholdbanner

I’m interviewing Caitlyn Daniels today, one of the characters of romance / suspense novel “One Last Hold”. Welcome, Caitlyn!

Character Interview

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Hi, I’m Caitlyn Daniels. I’m a journalist for an entertainment magazine, and I live in Austin, Texas.

What is your role in the story?

My role in the story is to get an interview on Wesley Webb. He’s a racecar driver who absolutely hates to be interviewed or to talk about himself.
What is your favorite hobby?

I love to write, and I’m blessed to have a job where I can.


What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?

I hope this assignment to spend this time and get a story on Wesley will be my closing, and I can purge him from my system. The challenge is that it’s not working. I’m only falling in love with him even more. And we have such a history together. Some bad, some good.


If you could make one wish, what would it be?

Oh gosh. There’s some things in my past I wish I could change. But then, I’m not sure what the present would be if those things changed and I might really muck things up.

About The Book

OnLastHold_CVR_MEDTitle: One Last Hold

Author: Angela Smith

Genre: Romantic Suspense

He has a shaded past…

Wesley Webb is at the pinnacle of his auto racing career when his main rival is murdered hours after their confrontation. That, along with evidence found at the scene, shades him as prime suspect. Now he’s under intense press scrutiny, particularly from Caitlyn Daniels, an ex-girlfriend who knows all about his secret past.

And she’s the one woman who could expose him…

Caitlyn thought to never see Wesley again. Now, his life could be in her hands. Ten years ago, a tragedy tore apart everything she held dear, including their relationship. When she’s assigned to do an exclusive story with the reluctant race car driver she once loved, she believes this could be her purging. But chemistry tears apart her resolve to stay strong. Can they work out their differences and fall in love again, or will tragedy keep them apart?

Author Bio

Angela(2)During her senior year in high school, Angela Smith was dubbed most likely to write a novel, and that has been my dream ever since her mother read ‘Brer Rabbit’ to her and her sister so often that they were able to recite it before being able to read. Before venturing into writing, she fell into the perfect job in criminal justice and later became a certified paralegal. When not caring for her small farm or spending time with her husband of two decades, she loves to craft, read, go off-roading, and dream of all the places she’ll visit one day.

Character Interview Shadow’s Moon Tour

15 Jun

shadowsmoonbanner

I’m hosting a character interview today with one of the characters from “Shadow’s Moon”, a paranormal romance / urban fantasy by Jami Gray. Enjoy!

Can you tell us a little about yourself? Who are you? What is your role in the story?
Moi? Let’s see, basic deets: Xander Cade, Tracker for the Northwest Motoki Pack, sister to one very annoying, lawyer-y type, and the one and only squeeze to the stubborn ass, alpha, Warrick Vidis. I’m more than enough for him to handle and he claims I’ll turn him gray early. (snorting) Please. More like, he needs me to remind him there is more to life than politics, meetings, and the end of the damn world. The man needs to lighten up a bit, take a few chances, maybe learn to socialize a little.
I’m me, short, curvy, blonde with an attitude. One I have no intentions of ever changing. In my world, females who don’t know what they want, when they want it or how they want it, get steamrolled. Hell, even Raine has to watch out for Gavin. That man can be downright sneaky in getting her to do things she doesn’t want to do. As for me, well, let’s say I take notes on Gavin’s skills. You never know when they’ll come in handy for nudging my alpha on the right path. And when nudging doesn’t work, there’s always a two by four.
Jami decided to throw a metric crap ton of  game changers at my alpha, so I’m not real happy with her right now. I know that’s why she’s hiding out. Damn good thing she made sure to keep me in the picture. Warrick gets so blinded by his past and what he thinks he needs to do to protect everyone else, he fails to see the dangers circling him. I’m here to watch his back and stand beside him, not behind him. Not only is he vital to the life I intend to be come accustomed to, but he’s vital to our pack, and our people. And by that I mean the Northwest Kyn.  Of course, I’d rather hand all that stress to someone else, but he won’t walk away.  (Looks away) But if he did try to walk away, he wouldn’t be the man I love  either, damn catch-22.

What is your favorite hobby?
(Tapping nail against her lips in thought) Hobby? I love my baby—she’s sleek, fast and can make the road weep under her tires. Ducati’s make the most beautiful creatures, and mine’s the top predator, no doubt about it. (Secretive smile) Besides, Warrick tends to like sitting behind me, makes the rides so much more fun.

What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?
(Looks uncomfortable) If you ask me, it’s trying to get Warrick to realize what “partner” really means. (Frowns) According to Jami, it boils down to trust—do I trust Warrick enough to accept me, the real me, not the laughing, teasing, quirky face I give to everyone else, and can Warrick trust me enough to stand beside him, not view me as a weakness for our enemies to exploit.
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
Wishes are dangerous things, they can come back and bite you in the ass.  (Tilts head to think)

Tell us a secret about you.
I’m a closet gambler—seriously, if I can bet on something I will.

Shadow’s Moon

Shadows Moon CoverTitle: Shadow’s Moon

Author: Jami Gray

Genre: Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy

Even a wild heart can be broken…

A blonde, a brunette and a monster walk into a bar and all hell breaks loose.

It should have been the start of a bad joke, but days from a full moon Xander Cade, Tracker for the Northwest Motoki Pack, finds nothing funny about confronting an enraged Shifter in a crowded Portland nightclub filled with unsuspecting humans. The resulting carnage frays an already thin veil of secrecy shielding the supernatural Kyn community from public scrutiny, and ensures she can’t escape the one man she’s been determined to avoid, her Alpha and mate, Warrick Vidis.  Dominating, protective and compelling, Warrick threatens her individuality like no other.

As the Northwest Alpha wolf, compromise isn’t in Warrick Vidis’s vocabulary, but when his reluctant mate, Xander Cade, refuses to leave off the hunt for a killer, he has no qualms using whoever or whatever necessary to protect her or his pack. A series of unusual deaths involving lone wolves, along with anonymous threats against him and his Pack, begin to jeopardize his normal steely control. Add in Xander’s continual reluctance to fully accept their Soul bond, and the line between intellect and instinct begins to blur, leaving him wondering if one woman’s love and acceptance will be enough to save both man and wolf.

As the danger escalates, threatening not just their Pack but those closest to them, Warrick and Xander must find a way to trust each other and accept their rare bond or risk losing everything-their pack, their friends and each other.
