MIH Sizzling Author Theme Days - Sexy Summer Reads with Dana Littlejohn

Hello Followers!

For those who don’t know, I am Dana Littlejohn, author of sensual and erotic romance. With characters from my WIP badgering me to complete their stories to doing edits for current stories, I rarely have time to read. However, when I am on vacation I don’t take my computer. Since I’m hardly ever apart from it, I fear damage if I have it with me when I am water skiing. J

Though I like fantasy stories very much and have read some really excellent fantasy books, like the ongoing Xanth series by Piers Anthony I consider myself a romance reader. I write it. I read it. I love it! But alas, because I write, I don’t have much time to read it. So when vacation time comes along, I take full advantage and read some really good books by other great authors.

When I look for a good summer read the first thing I look for is length. Since I don’t have a lot of time, I look for books under 10k. I can get through them when my husband and I are apart doing separate things. For example, he likes snorkeling and I don’t. While he does that I sit on the beach sipping Mai Tai’s and reading. I need a book I get through quickly but that is stimulating enough to make it through my Mai Tai fuzzed brain. J

I also look for a specific genre. Although I have one historical inspired book in my arsenal, I don’t write them. The reason I don’t write them is because I love them! I love them so much that I want to keep them pure in my mind’s eye by not doing one of my own and messing it up for me. I would have to do all this time period research to make sure African Americans were there, if they were what were they doing, blah blah blah, etc… That would turn it into work and not fun anymore. BUT, I did want to play with it just…a little.

The book I speak of is part of a four book series about Aphrodite’s children. Eros and Himeros, twin sons with Ares, Hermaprodites is the son she had with Hermes and the daughter Poseidon sired, Herophile. Her story is called Charles’ Goddess. It is my tribute to my love for historical romances. Perhaps it will be a good summer read for you. J

Charles’ Goddess
Erotes series: Book 3

Goddess Herophile is set for punishment by Zeus for misusing the powers given to her from her father, Poseidon, and causing precious humans harm and distress. 

Aphrodite, her mother, and the Erotes, her brothers, only have one chance to save Herophile from further harm once Zeus carries out his sentence. 

Will it be enough time to enhance Aphrodite’s dormant gifts and make Herophile’s future better than her present?

Thanks for checking out my post. If you’re looking for short reads like I am this summer, feel free to stop by my site and pick up one of my free reads and other books with short, medium and long lengths. Enjoy your summer!

Hot & Bothered Thursday with Kay Dee Royal ~ #MIHBlog

Today we have the lovely Kay Dee Royal with us along with her book, Savage Smoke. First the book’s particulars.

Savage Smoke – Book 2 Lycan International Investigation Series
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Sizzling HOT! Warning: Lots of two-somes, three-somes, even more-somes, like it stimulating, arousing, and positively natural…or supernatural.
Tagline: Will Trevor rescue Lindsey in time to save her from shifting into Smoke’s pack, and will she even want saved?
Chance and his LIIA pack of agents search for rogue Lycan mastermind, Smoke, kidnapper of Lindsey and fifteen other human women he plans to use for procreating his own army.

Trevor, Chance’s right-hand Lycan, wants his mate back, but believes she’s fallen for her captor. Lindsey loves Trevor but believes he’s given up on her.

Will Trevor come around in time to rescue Lindsey and save her from shifting into Smoke’s pack, and will she even want back with Trevor after spending so long apart?

And here’s 7 sexy paragraphs of Savage Smoke:

Smoke stared into the most beautiful emerald green eyes he’d ever seen. He sniffed the air in vain and couldn’t detect any kind of scent from her.
“You won’t find me that way,” she stated, gaze glued to his. It intertwined with his, connecting them as if a live wire ran between them.
His heart hammered inside his chest, chipping away at his rib cage. Focus had a drive of its own, and minutes ticked by while they simply stood in front of each other. Lindsey brushed against his shins, startling him into awareness. She scooted out from between him and the female with the gorgeous eyes. Lindsey sat on the blanket a short distance away. He noted absently she didn’t attempt to run, but dismissed any thought of her in the next instant. His attention was completely drawn to emerald eyes.
The female continued holding his gaze, almost as if she compelled him, but he knew she didn’t. He simply couldn’t pull himself out of it. Balled-up emotions inside him purged forward and grabbed onto this female’s bold stare. His cock thickened even more. He suddenly wondered if he’d lost control. Then the green-eyed beauty reached forward, snapping his attention to her fingers drawing circles around his nipples. He panted and wanted her.
“You’re not what I expected,” green-eyes whispered. “Something crazy is happening between us. What are you doing?” She pinched his nipples—hard. His hips thrust into her pubic bone of their own volition, as if she drew his cock like a lodestone.
“Nothing. What are you doing?” he choked out. She still had a tight hold on his nipples, and the pain pleasure she created whipped through him like a silver blade. Another uncontrolled thrust of his hips met with one from her.
She pushed him back until he lay across a flat rock and then she climbed over him. Her blonde tendrils swept over his skin, lighting a blaze wherever it touched.

Here’s a little more on Kay Dee.

Kay Dee Royal writes paranormal, fantasy, and contemporary erotic romance—maybe because it's also her favorite genres to read! She pens tales with wild, rugged heroes and strong, intelligent heroines. She'll give them both a few shadowy secrets, making her stories intriguing and fun. She resides in Southern Michigan with her family (her dog, her cats, her caged husband... you get the idea). You can find the latest on her titles from her publisher, MuseItHot.

You can find her at the following places:

See you all next week!

Naked Truth Interview with Thomas Briar, Author of In The Age of Hysteria #Erotic

Welcome back for another installment of Naked Truth Interviews, where we get down and dirty with your favorite Muse It Hot authors, and get a closer look at some of their fantastic work. This week, my guest is Thomas Briar, who brought along his newest release, The Age of Hysteria.

In the Age of Hysteria
by Thomas Briar

Genre:  Erotic Historical Fiction
Release Date:  June 28, 2013
Editor:  Lea Schizas
Cover Designer:  Marion Sipe

Back Cover: Dr. Joseph Banner, a twenty-two year old graduate of medical college, has a natural gift for treating hysteria, circa 1878. The only problem is none of his peers in Boston, Massachusetts will offer him an assistantship due to a supposed moral indiscretion on his part. Without obtaining an assistantship he cannot enter the medical field to build a reputation as a competent doctor. Or, so he believes.

 The beautiful and affluent Ms. Mary Pyre, a twenty-six year old businesswoman, has heard whispers of Joseph's proficiency in treating the disease. She seeks Joseph out and hires him as the attending physician at her Women's Health and Revitalizing Spa. Though Joseph and Mary are attracted to each other, unfortunate circumstances make them keep their romantic feelings for one another at arm's length. It is only when he learns she needs his expertise to overcome her chronic sexual impotence toward men that their relationship has an opportunity to move forward.

The Interview:

Bex: What inspired you to write In The Age Of Hysteria? Is there an interesting story behind it?
Thomas: I'm always seeking to come up with an erotic story that one cannot buy a hundred others just like it on Amazon. That was the real inspiration for the story. I just wanted to write something different. 

Bex: If you could only write in one genre for the rest of your career, what genre would you choose? 
Thomas: Are you kidding? Erotic Romance, of course! Why would I ever want to leave such an interesting genre?

Bex: Which of the characters in your current release is your favorite? 
Thomas: Joseph. He's intelligent and has an awesome set of sexual skills.

Bex: What music was on your playlist while writing your novella?
Thomas: Sirius Octane (New Hard Rock). My favorite bands are My Darkest Days and Five Finger Death Punch.

Bex: What is the one thing about the book publishing process that has surprised you the most?
Thomas: Lea Schizas. Before joining Muse I thought publishers like her existed only in theory. She's also my editor. Some days I find it hard to believe my good fortune.

Bex: Tell us one thing it would surprise us to know about you?
Thomas: I don't have any children. I suppose this is because for the past twenty years my wife has always been the most fun I've ever had! And I never intentionally mess up any fun thing.

Bex: Tell us something about your current release we won’t find in the back cover blurb?
Thomas: It has a happy ending.

Bex: What made you decide to write erotic romance?
Thomas: A woman in orgasm is the most beautiful thing in the world…in real life or in fiction. I have the best job ever!

Bex: What is your guilty indulgence?
Thomas: In my spare time I like to make costume jewelry for my wife. When life gets crazy, it brings me tranquility, not to mention praise from my wife…which suddenly reminds me…I haven't put anything on the Present Table for her to discover in over two weeks…she's going to start thinking I'm getting self-absorbed…sorry to cut this interview short, but I have something very important calling me away that I have to take care of right now. Thanks for having me over!

Bex: Sounds like your wife is one lucky girl. *grins*

* * * * *

Author's Bio: Thomas Briar lives in South Georgia. He strives to exalt the virtues of love and lust in every erotic story he creates, but BDSM within alternative lifestyles is his absolute favorite subject to write about. This will probably always be so, no matter which sub-genre of erotica he finds his mind turning toward.

L.J.Holmes and Kat Holmes - Sexy Summer Reads - the Holmes' way;)

We were just about finished with this interview when our computer crashed and we lost the entire interview so here we go again. Please bear with us as we try to be clever once more.

Kat: Yeah…Mom’s mind isn’t always up to that challenge but she tries.

L.J: Thanks So Much Daughter of Mine! Comments like that are why we’ve only collaborated on TWO books so far.

Kat: Though we ARE working on the third. See, memory!

L.J: Moving on…Let’s talk about what we’re drawn to when meandering around bookstores for HOT reads. I don’t actually NEED to ask you…You LOVE vampires.

Kat: True…Blood suckers are cool…as long as they make certain you’re so turned on by their…technique…you don’t feel that prick…much the way men need to make certain you’re all hot and bothered and ohhh so wet before they prick you.

L.J: Does that mean you’re on the look out for a GOOD vampire?

Kat: Hey I’m no dummy!

L.J: One of the nice things about being down here in the deep south is we get to enjoy the summer heat early.

Kat: Like swimming in April. Speaking of…summer heat…Ma do you remember the other night…the guy who overheard us talking about you being my mom when we were headed to the pool and he couldn’t believe you were my mom…do you think he was hitting on you?

L.J: Guess the legs are still smoking…and let’s face it, I think you inherited them, ’cause he was checking you out, too.

Kat: Hmmm. You think that’s why he was paying such close attention to me doing my laps?

L.J: Could be. When you flap those legs… But we’re digressing. We need to talk about ONE NIGHT STUD our amazing collaboration. Since you’re the one who came up with the idea I think you should tell everybody about it.

Kat: Actually it’s a simple short story. You have centaurs who are a randy group but they’re also shape-shifters living secretly among us. At night they go to this happening bar as humans and get it on. See they can only do the down and dirty in their human form, but there comes a time, one night, when they have until daybreak to find their one true love and convince him/her to commit forever or at daybreak the centaur loses his/her ability to shift into human form. This is a fate worse than death since they’re immortal and they can never engage in sex again after they lose their ability to shift into their human side.

L.J: And we made our stud’s mate loathe to commit to anyone on HIS one night. That day she finally got her divorce from her first class creep. All she wants is to get a good lay. Permanent is the very last thing on her mind.

Kat: So he’s really got his work cut out for him.

L.J: Luckily he likes his work.

Kat: Still, he IS sort of under the gun.

L.J: Yeah he is. That’s pressure. Makes you wonder how a studly horse can perform with that kind of heaviness, doesn’t it?

Kat: Awww Mommmm!

L.J: You also love gods, especially the GREEK ones. Are we gonna talk about your vampire series…the one the Greek goddess Hekate controls?

Kat: Do you think we should?

L.J: Oh yeah! Absolutely. I mean how many vampire groups have a kick ass female that can drop the guys the way your Lilith can?

Kat: (giggling) HIDDEN is different; in fact, I found the image used for her on the cover and I positively love that about her. She certainly makes both the good vamps and the bad vamps of both genders sit up and re-evaluate everything they believed they knew about their heritage.

L.J: What IS Hekate up to besides fashioning Lilith into one of the hottest female sex-mates I’ve ever found in ANY book anywhere?

Kat: The series is called Hekate’s Web and nobody knows what the goddess is about. Hekate maneuvers ALL the immortals, not JUST the vampires. For instance she has Royce a water demon watching over Lilith. Royce hates vampires…we don’t know why, but he’s under Hekate’s directions, so watch over Lilith he does. The title HIDDEN refers to Lilith being hidden away after she’s turned for thirty years while she cooks…not sure why Hekate wants her to cook, but she remains hidden away so that the good vamps and the bad vamps have no idea she exists…but when they discover her…she rocks their world like you would not believe.

L.J: The second book in this series SEEKER is coming out at the end of this year and I’m lucky that I get to read your work while it’s in progress. I cannot wait to read the third, fourth, fifth and so on. I’m sitting here trying to figure out what Hekate might be up to. I tried doing that while you were writing Seeker and I was SOOOO wrong. May I say, daughter of mine, you have one POWERFULLY wicked mind!

Kat: Another thing I inherited from you?

L.J: I doubt it, but let’s move on. Here’s an excerpt from Hidden

And the direct HIDDEN buy page.

Kat: And now, Mom, I think we should talk about YOUR short and steaming hot story THEHIDDEN GLADE.

L.J: Have you any idea how bizarre it is to talk about THE HIDDEN GLADE right after talking about your book HIDDEN?

Kat: They’re NOTHING alike.

L.J: I know. Okay. Mine is about a place I spent a lot of time at when I was a child. It gave me peace, serenity, and a calm place in the storms that formed most of my world. My parents were enamored with alcohol and alcohol didn’t lend itself to creating a world of tranquility. The Glade gave me that. As I grew into adulthood I realized the glade was also a place that would lend itself to having the perfect fantasy encounter…and that’s how THE HIDDEN GLADE came into being.

Kat: Do you remember when you got the cover for THE HIDDEN GLADE from Marion Sipe?

L.J: Oh Yeah. I think I screamed for you. You came out and we both let out a scream.

Kat: You showed me your secret glade when I was about twenty. Marion’s cover captured it so well it was like we were there again. I couldn’t believe it.

L.J: Nor could I. It’s almost like Marion climbed inside my head and pulled the image of my glade from my memories.

Kat: You know Mom, everything I’ve written for Muse has ended up on the HOT side except for our first collaboration HERLAST DAY, and that was rejected four times because it DIDN’T have enough heat. Guess that tells you us HOLMES girls HAVE to do HOT.

L.J: If that young man at the pool the other night is any indication, we just can’t escape the fact that you and I are smoking chicks…so I guess we should leave the readers with what we’re reading right now.

Kat: I know what we’re BOTH reading…but maybe we shouldn’t tell.

L.J: Okay, he’s not a Muse hero…but maybe one of our authors will create a hero like him in the future…I mean…hey Roarke is drool worthy.

Kat: Yeah he is and he and Eve Dallas do get into some creative poking adventures. So The In Death Series because we’re only allowed three weeks from the library down here and I took out twenty books figuring I’d be having surgery…and if you’re lying on your back recovering from surgery I can’t think of a better way to do it than joining Peabody in drooling over Roarke.

L.J: I agree…except I do try to avoid the In Death’s that deal with Eve’s intense Daddy issues. Anything that takes her to Texas I know to give a pass on.

Kat: Mind if I divert a moment? There’s a big question circulating about covers. Mom, are you drawn to almost naked guys or girls on covers when looking for hot reads?

L.J: I don’t know. Maybe I’ve climbed up and slid down too many hills. No. That just smacks of pseudo porn. I have a cover for a book of mine that came out in May also by Suzannah Safi called ECHOES FROM THE PAST and I find the power in the hero’s eyes far more seductive than if he was standing staring at me in his almost all together. That may just be me, but I’d be drawn to buy a book that uses the power of the eyes as seducers. I think Suzannah understands subtlety is far more powerful than blatancy.

Kat: I agree. I like the mystery of unwrapping the prize inside the book. Can you think of anything else we need to share?

L.J: Our links?

Kat: (shaking her head) Ah Ma, you and I are going to have to sit down and finish your website soon.

L.J: As soon as we find time…I promise!

Kat: Okay e-mail addresses…yours and mine. Mine: Mykitty130 AT Yahoo DOT com

Your: Spatzdkat 1212 AT Yahoo DOT com

My blog

Your MAIN blog…you’ve got what…12

MY website

Your face book…what do you mean you don’t know it…okay I don’t know mine either…and truth is I would have to dig up my Twitter as well.

We can be much more easily tracked through our Author’s pages at Muse It Up’s Bookstore anyway.

I guess that’s everything for now…except HAPPY READING!

Themed Days - Sexy Summer Reads - Erotic Horror around the campfire;)

Themed Days – Sexy Summer Read – Erotic Horror around the campfire - Could you imagine :) Talk about a scary story…more like really sexy. Check out our own R. Brennan’s Blood and Fire. Lookin' for one sexy hot horror story for the summer, look no further...

What I Look For in a Summer Read (R. Brennan)

Summer is fast approaching, and I don’t know about the rest of you, but summer for me means I catch up on my reading lists. Between beach days and weekends at camp lazing in the hammock, I gotta have plenty of reads to keep my mind occupied and keep me from getting bored while working on the killer tan.

When it comes to summer books, I look for a few specific things when filling up my beach bag with books, or loading up my Nook. The first biggie for me is the cover. I am an admitted cover whore, so I really need one that grabs me, a cover that beckons me from the shelves with that little whisper, “pick me”. In this regard, I’ve noticed I am drawn to striking covers that don’t have too much going on. Busy covers really turn me off. I guess that sort of makes me a cover minimalist.

The other biggie for me is a unique twist. Something I haven’t seen before, or a new twist on an old trope. This is where the back of the book comes in. If you can grab me with those few paragraphs of description, I am pretty much guaranteed to buy it.

Beyond those two characteristics, I am a sucker for any story with pirates, especially in the summer. I guess because it gets me thinking of the sea, the salty air, and the Caribbean. I also can’t turn my back on a good, steamy romance. Something to really get the blood pumping and the emotions flowing. I was weaned on historical romances, devouring anything I could find written by Jennifer Blake and Patricia Rice, so they also have a special place in my reader’s heart. I have some fond memories of vacations with my family, laying in the sun and reading. Happy times, I tell ya.

Speaking of steamy summer reads, have you checked out my dark erotica tale, Blood and Fire? It’s a hot one, if I do say so myself *wink*

How about you all? What do you look for in a summer read?

Blood and Fire

by R. Brennan

Genre: Erotic Horror

Back Cover:

College student, Francesca Morgan has finally met the Dominant man of her dreams. Kevin Stevenson is sexy, sure of himself, and knows just how to make her knees quake.

When he takes Frankie to her first fetish party, she is reminded being collared means her Master can do what he wishes with her, including offering her "services" for the evening to a sexy Dominant business associate he is trying to impress.

It doesn't take long for Frankie to realize their host, Bartholomew Andrews is nothing like any Dom she has ever served. Aside from his devastating looks and heaping financial fortune, Bartholomew can read her thoughts, and knows just how to make her body react.

Can Frankie keep her wits about her and serve at his feet without falling for him, or will Master Amazing steal her heart and her soul in one steamy night of servitude?


I fidgeted with my black lace garter for the third time in five minutes. No matter how much I toyed with it, the torturous material tickled my inner thighs until I resort to scratching like a flea-infested hound. Through sheer force of will, I stopped gouging at my leg, and with a quick twist and pull, adjusted my g-string, which attempted to crawl higher than any butt floss should go. Tweaking complete, I checked my appearance in the bathroom mirror.

The red satin teddy clung to hourglass curves and highlighted my green eyes, just as I’d hoped when picking it out. The bodice’s built-in push up bra did wonders for the little ladies—an added bonus. I swept a few unruly, blonde strands of hair from my face and took stock of the make-up situation. Rosy cheeks. Check. Black eye gunk. Check.

I inhaled through my nose, and with puffed cheeks, blew out through my mouth—a stress relief trick I learned watching daytime TV. But, the nervous tension remained knotted between my shoulder blades.

I guess it’s time to see if I have the balls to wear this getup in public.

Stiffening my bare shoulders, I turned away from the mirror and left the bathroom, stopping just short of barreling into Mallory.

“Jesus, Mal.” My hands found my silk clad hips. “You couldn’t wait in the living room? I told you I’d be out in a minute.”

“Sorry, but you’ve been in there for ages, Frankie.”

Holding my hands out to my sides, I turned in a circle. “Well? What do you think?”

The only woman on the planet I actually trusted appraised me from top to bottom. “Let me see your ass again.”

With a quick turnabout, I wiggled my bottom at her, and peeked over my shoulder to see if she approved.


This is definitely not something for the faint of heart, but I enjoyed it a lot. Miss Brennan has a wicked mind! Ms Romantic Reads 4 lips

This is definitely not something for the faint of heart, but I enjoyed it a lot. Miss Brennan has a wicked mind!This was a short and not so sweet tale, which takes a very unexpected and refreshing turn midway through, thus the horror shelf tag. Brennan could have kept this story predictable, but didn't, and that makes this story all the more engaging.Amazon reader review

I loved the imagery in this story it was a quick satisfying read that lets us follow along inside the mind of a sub as her master takes control. I found the subs desire very enticing and would recommend this to anyone looking for a little horror in their sub dominant relationships. It is graphic at times and beautiful a great mix of the sensual and the scared out of your f#4#ing mind. Amazon reader review

A night out pushing past boundaries leaves this sub in a dangerous predicament. Be careful whose collar you strap on there could be hell to pay. I loved the imagery in this story it was a quick satisfying read that lets us follow along inside the mind of a sub as her master takes control. I found the subs desire very enticing and would recommend this to anyone looking for a little horror in their sub dominant relationships. It is graphic at times and beautiful a great mix of the sensual and the scared out of your f***ing mind. Amazon 5 star reader review

Hot & Bothered Thursday with Anne Stenhouse ~ #MuseItHot

Good morning everyone! Hope you’re ready for another Hot & Bothered 7. Today we have the love Anne Stenhouse here with 7 sentences from her book, Mariah’s Marriage, a historical romance set in 19th century London.

            “I think the young lady probably uses different methods to achieve her ends, and besides,” the man said with a smile in his voice that matched the twinkle in his brown eyes, “it was ever the case that the young male would escape as quickly as possible from confinement in a classroom. Even when the lessons were presided over with such grace.” He bowed.
            Mariah felt a warm blush stain her cheeks. This man was flirting with her. How had she allowed herself to become an object of gallantry? “Peter, I think Papa will wonder why we are late,” she said, and with a swift nod in the direction of her tormentor, turned away.

You can purchase the book here: MuseItUp Publishing Buy Link

Thanks for joining all...come back and see us real soon.

Naked Truth Interview with Kelly Whitley and Into the Red #MuseItHot #Suspense #Romance

Welcome back for another enlightening Muse it Hot interview. This week, we have Muse author, Kelly Whitley in the hot seat with her latest Muse it Up release, INTO THE RED. I'll state for the record right now, the cover has me completely intrigued. Have already added this one to my buy list for this month.

I'm feeling a little upside down this morning, so let's look at her story first and then get down and dirty with Ms. Whitley.

Into the Red
by Kelly Whitley

Genre: Romantic Suspense (Paranormal)
Publisher: Muse It Up Publishing
Release Date: July 13, 2012

Blurb: Human blood is an illicit and highly addictive drug--if you're a vampire. Known as Red, its side effects are insanity, and eventual death. A group of Red-addicted vampires known as Poisoners are killing women as part of an extortion plot involving a lost ancient vampiric tome, and they’re leaving a trail of bodies in their wake. The discovery of each new victim risks exposure of the entire vampire race to humans. Then one victim survives…

Dr. Evan Nichols, oncologist and vampire, lives a monk-like existence, by his own choice, focusing on patient care and research to benefit his vampire brethren. It’s been twenty-five years since his world turned upside down—the night he lost his fiancĂ©e and discovered his hidden vampire heritage. Now his government has ordered him to take a mate—or they’ll choose one for him. It’s a horrible prospect, and one that might push him over the edge—until Fate throws him together with a human female.

Wary of relationships, Tara West has poured her energies into work and inventing cutting edge climbing equipment. She doesn’t like the gorgeous Dr. Nichols, yet finds herself unaccountably drawn to him.
When a crazed vampire attacks and poisons Tara, Evan rescues her. With time running out, he has to create an antidote to the poison before he loses his chance at love.

In order to make the vaccine which might cure her, he has to find the bastards who poisoned her and take their venom—before they die of their addiction. If he doesn’t reach them in time, saving her will be impossible.

Thus the journey begins—into the Red!

Now that we know about Kelly's book, let's take a moment to learn a little more about Kelly, her writing, and what makes her tick. here's my interview with her:

Bex: Are you a pantser or a plotter?
Kelly: I outline, and then fill in the outline.

Bex: What authors inspire you? 
Kelly: Bonnie Vanak; Linda Howard. John Sandford.

Bex: Which of the characters in your current release is your favorite? Why? 
Kelly: Gage—probably because he’s like the crabby guy with a heart of gold. He was fun to write.

Bex: I have a weakness for grumpy men. Just ask my bohunk - the king of grumps. Are any of your characters modeled after real people?  If so, which ones? 
Kelly: No. Some are an amalgam of real people, but none is a real person.

Bex: What group were you a part of in High School? Jocks? Nerds? Metal heads? 
Kelly: Nerds. Definitely nerds.

Bex: What is next for you? Any new stories in the pipeline to tell us about? 
Kelly: I’m working on a romance about a doctor who takes a medical mission in Africa, risking his relationship. A little different from the usual romance, in that it starts with the disintegration of the relationship, and then its resurrection.

Bex: Sounds interesting. Will look forward to that. Do you have any unique skills or talents? If so, what? 
Kelly: I paint. Writing takes up most of my “hobby time” now though.

Bex: What is the oddest question you’ve been asked with respect to your book? 
Kelly: Is it about economics? The title—Into the Red—inspires thoughts of debt instead of blood in some people.

Bex: Hehe. Must be a number crunchers thing. When I saw the title I thought murder, but I'm definitely not a numbers gal.Tell us something about your current release we won’t find in the back cover blurb? 
Kelly: There’s a terrific villain in there—a guy you can really love to hate.

Bex: My kinda character! This questions is for my own morbid curiosity...Coke or Pepsi? 
Kelly: Diet caffeine free Pepsi.

Bex: Zombies or Vampires? Why? 
Kelly: Vampires all the way. I’m a romantic, and there’s nothing romantic about zombies IMHO!

Bex: What made you decide to write erotic romance? 
Kelly: That’s what I like to read. There’s nothing like an intimate encounter to lay bare truths about characters (no pun intended).

Bex: What is the one material item you absolutely couldn’t live without if you were stranded on a deserted island? 
Kelly: My Kindle.

Bex: What is your guilty indulgence? 
Kelly: Hot Tamales—I need ‘em to write! The sugar load keeps me going.

Bex: Nice. I'ma Twizzlers girl myself, but I remember Hot Tamales and Mike and Ikes from growing up. Thanks so much for spending a bit of time with us today, Kelly.

And for all you readers out there -- go get yourself a copy of Kelly's Romantic Suspense, INTO THE RED. See you all next week!
