Get into Bed with Sara Humphreys (Author Interview)

Sara Humphreys 1Keira: You’ve created a complex and captivating world of shapeshifters in your Amoveo Legend series. For those who aren’t fully familiar, please tell us a little bit about the Amoveo and the books in your series so far.

Sara Humphreys: Thank you! The Amoveo are a secret society of dream walking, telepathic shapeshfiters in search of their one true mate. They are made up of ten different animal clans and if they don’t find their pre-destined mate by the age of thirty they begin to lose their abilities and will die. They can only have children with their mate so for all of their strengths they’re actually a rather fragile race. If you kill one Amoveo, the mate dies and you wipe out the possibility of offspring. Until recently they thought their mate could only be another Amoveo. However, what they discover in UNLEASHED (#1) is that there are human/Amoveo hybrids who have been hidden around the world.

Keira: Let’s imagine that your world is reality! If there are shapeshifters among us, what would be some of those key signs or traits the Amoveo have?

SH: All Amoveo have large eyes, not freakishly big but strikingly beautiful. They’re all gorgeous (hey, why not?) and the men are tall and physically fit. They live among humans but would be secretive and most of them choose to live in rural areas so they can roam freely in their clan form when they want to.

Keira: Your heroine, Layla, has been avoiding her mate and is literally hiding from her destiny! What has made her put up these walls?

SH: She only knows a little bit about the Amoveo and none of it is good. As far as she knows, her mother was driven insane when she found out Layla’s father was a shifter and her father abandoned her. Her adopted siblings, also hybrids but from the Wolf Clan, had parents who suffered as a result of their mating too. Their father was murdered by his own people and their mother died when they were toddlers. Layla is under the impression that hooking up with an Amoveo man won’t end well and she resents that her life is left up to the fates.

Keira: What are some of the things about William you think readers will really love?

SH: He’s a stiff and I think they’ll enjoy watching Layla loosen him up. He’s all alpha-male and fiercely protective of her but he doesn’t force himself on her. I think his willingness to be patient is sexy.

Keira: When you’re not writing, what can we find you doing?

SH: If it’s work hours and if I’m not writing, then I’m working on the business of writing. (marketing, blogs, etc) If it’s home hours, then I’m cooking, cleaning or hanging with my boys. If it’s downtime then I’m diddling around the internet, reading (my TBR pile is huge) or watching a little television.

Keira: We love your videos of reviews and author interviews! Who have been some of your favorite authors to chat with (provide links)?

SH: Thanks! Sometimes I wonder if anyone watches those. My favorites? I can’t possibly pick one! So many of these folks have become my friends and I adore them all. That’s one of coolest things that has happened since I’ve been published. The friendships I’ve made have been such a gift! Here’s a link to my YouTube channel. Come on by! http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=UUTOaoH2_IDnF8Z8idCZmK7Q

Keira: What’s the most surprising thing that has happened to you since you’ve become a romance author?

SH: Aside from the wonderful friendships I’ve made with readers and authors, I’d have to say the ability to live my dream. I never thought I’d be able to do what I’m doing for a living. I wake up every, single morning and throw a prayer of gratitude to my guardian angels. I’m blessed in so many ways.

Keira: Please tell us where readers can find you on the web, and what’s coming next for you!

SH: I’m working on the fifth Amoveo Legend novel, UNCLAIMED, and the second vampire book from my Dead in the City series (look for book 1, Tall, Dark and Vampire in August 2013). I’m also excited to be branching out and trying a new genre! I have a contemporary romance series coming with Sourcebooks. The Holding Out for Hero series will feature men in uniform and I’m thrilled to try something new.

Thank you so much for hosting me here today! Readers can find me at:

Review: Killer in Wolf’s Clothing by Kelli A. Wilkins

Killer in Wolf’s ClothingReviewed by Lynn Reynolds

This is a book that you will need an open mind in order to read. It is a M/M romance with some BDSM. Just because it’s a gay romance don’t let that stop you from reading this story.

Greg and Larry are playing some bedroom games ;-) Kelli shows her readers that Greg and Larry can be like any loving couple. But then you’ll find that she has added a paranormal twist to her story.

Deke is someone who’s not very happy with Greg. Wait until you see the kind of appetite he has – and I’m not just talking about food. One great thing about paranormal authors is that nothing is off limits – the sky’s the limit. Anything is possible and there are no boundaries.

Kelli could have gone the easy route and just made the story about Greg and Larry. But she has given us a mystery plot and the guys need to solve it. For me, it’s the mystery that keeps me turning the page not all the sex. Don’t get me wrong that sex is great in a story but for me there has to be more than just that to hold my attention.

The impressive thing is that Kelli gets her tale done in less than one hundred pages. And when you have finished reading it, you won’t feel cheated. She does a great job of keeping you interested. You will not want to put this down until you have read it from the first page until the last. I’m a fan and can’t wait to read more of her work.

Review: Kiss the Dead (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #21) by Laurell K. Hamilton

Kiss the DeadSummary: An underage girl is kidnapped by vampires and Anita Blake leads the U.S. Marshals to the rescue. When they find her, Anita is more concerned that the kiss is comprised of recently turned normal people. Oh and they are seemingly leaderless and willing to commit suicide on TV to avoid being controlled by Jean-Claude.

Good Points:

  • Woo! Anita is working her Marshal badge like crazy – leading teams of professionals into the vampire dens, solving a mystery, winning the day.
  •  There will be no more freaking out if Anita is going to change into a particular breed of lycanthrope! Why? The vampire marks!
  • Anita angsting about if she is a monster (sounds like the first couple of books when she gained new powers) because so-called friends say mean things to her. Oh Anita, grow a thicker skin.
  • Throwing the gay-marshal-in-the-closet at the crazy-police-lady who wants Nathaniel and thinks Anita is abusing her guys. That was funny.

Bad Points:

  •  Homophobic (at least in terms of herself with other females) Anita suddenly has an exception in the form of Jade? Did I miss this in a previous book? So now she’s hetero-something or another – Hamilton had a phrase for it – meaning she has one exception to her heterosexual rule. Really? Blah.
  • How many Kegel exercises does Anita do in a day to achieve the praise, “I’d forgotten how tight you stay even wet”? There is no way a gal can have the harem of men that she has, with genitalia the size they have, and do the near constant sexing she does and still be that tight. Must be the vampire marks.
  • Asher – he’s the new Richard, because Richard isn’t there to be…well…Richard. So to get rid of a character she screwed up, that used to be hot and sexy and all sorts of yumminess, he is now being transferred (temporarily perhaps, perhaps not) to be the master of his own city.

Going forward I want to see:

  •  The core guys (Jean-Claude, Asher, Micah, Nathaniel); no new ones added. It’s time to cut the ever-widening polyamorous nonsense.
  • My advice to Anita who whines about how many guys she’s got on her plate: Lose Asher (b/c he’s not pulling his weight – for now), Sin (too young for you), Jade (you prefer guys, so why is she on your list anyway), Jason (he’s your best friend, not your boy toy), and every random or semi-random extra.
  • More Jean-Claude – Anita is getting too Micah/Nathaniel focused, which strikes me as odd and less than fair to the others… especially this particular vampire.

Rating: ★★½☆☆

Men and Wolves and Myths, Oh My…

Stephanie JulianGuest Blog by Stephanie Julian, author of Goddess in the Middle (Forgotten Goddesses)

I’m a huge mythology fan so when I realized that GODDESS IN THE MIDDLE, the third book in the Forgotten Goddesses series, was going to be a ménage, I knew I had to come up with two strong men.

Amity, the Etruscan Goddess of Health, is being chased by the minions of Charun, God of the Underworld, who wants to consume her powers so he can break free of the underworld.

She’s going to need all the help she can get to beat Charun. She’s not exactly built to handle an attack by blue-skinned demons with razor-sharp teeth and claws. She’s a healer, not a fighter.

Enter cousins Remy and Rom. They’re actually tracking the demon that’s after Amity and they plan to seduce her so they can be there to catch the demon when it attacks her.

Since I knew I was going to need to two heroes, I didn’t have to look very hard to find the perfect names for my heroes.

Romulus and Remus are the legendary founders of Rome, the sons of a Vestal Virgin and Mars, the God of War (or the demi-god Hercules, depending on who you’re reading). They were raised by a wolf (score! I mean, come on, my heroes are werewolves) and they grew up to become kings.

Okay, so most of the rest of the story isn’t all heroics and glory (we’re talking myth so there’s lots of blood and betrayal and raping and pillaging) but I could ignore all that because I had a great foundation to launch my characters from.

And they really are great guys. Remy and Rom are strong, heroic, loving, loyal and when they decide that Amity is their woman, they give her everything they’ve got. And more.

Here’s a little taste of GODDESS IN THE MIDDLE

“Rom, knock it off.”

Rom turned and found Remy staring at him with stormy eyes and a scowl on his scarred face. Grown men had been known to run the other way when Remy turned that look on them.

Rom glared back at his cousin. “Get dressed before someone sees you, scassacazzo. I don’t want to get stopped by the police with your dick wagging all over the place.”

Remy just raised one brow before he took his sweet time pulling on clothes as Rom buckled Amity into the seat. She seemed to have fallen asleep, which was fine by him.

Dressed, Remy moved forward so he could let his hand stroke along Amity’s disheveled hair.

Rom started the Jeep, wincing at the loud growl from the engine. Vaffanculo, he needed to get this thing tuned up so it didn’t make so damn much noise. Or maybe he’d finally buy a new car since they wouldn’t be battered and bloody so damn much now that they’d killed the demon.

“And there you go again, thinking too damn much.” Remy’s voice held just the right note of sarcasm to fire up Rom’s ire. Remy was the only one who could do that so fast.

Rom prided himself on being relatively calm, cool, and collected during most situations.

Even in a fight, he never let his emotions get the better of him. Remy had enough for both of them.

One of them needed to be thinking ahead to the aftermath. Remy often lost himself in the fight, in the heat of the battle.

Even in the thick of things, Rom was thinking ahead to how to dispose of the bodies.

“It’s a damn good thing one of us actually does think.” Rom deliberately poked at Remy to see what he’d do.

Remy surprised him. He only gave Rom the finger then returned his attention to Amity.

“Why the hell didn’t she tell us who she was?”

Review: The Wolf Who Loved Me by Lydia Dare

The Wolf Who Loved MeReviewed by Susan S.

Summary: Regency Werewolf Trilogy, Book One Have you ever wished for something you’ll never have? Like that Lamborghini Countach, or the eight bedroom beachside mansion. Well, Weston Hadley (hero) has grown accustomed to wishing for the unattainable. I know what you’re thinking. Pray tell, what does Hadley want that he can’t have? He wants… Lady Madeline Hayburn. What’s the idiom? If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

Hadley’s loved Madeline for years, but all the wishing and wanting won’t alter the facts. She’s a duke’s daughter and he’s a penniless nobody. Since he can’t have her, he just plows through life with reckless abandon. Living his carefree existence of no responsibilities and total frivolity.

Until the day that Madeline sees him changing. And I don’t mean his clothes. I mean shifting from man to wolf. Causing both man and wolf to face what they’ve tried so hard to avoid… responsibility!

Musical Review: Just Let Me Be In Love by Tracy Byrd. Only difference is that Tracy sings about finding a way to mess things up, whereas Weston did that from the get-go.

Traditional Review: I enjoyed it too much when Wes absconded with Madeline. It was deliciously exciting! My heart pounded when the heroine’s father was tracking them. And surprisingly I had no problems with the hero’s beta status which I thought was going to turn me off. I found his irresponsible and fun nature enjoyable. Especially, when that very nature led to some rather disastrous events. It’s also funny that this wolf has absolutely no people skills whatsoever! None. He’s completely untamed.

I’ve grown so accustomed to Lydia Dare’s strong-willed heroines that Madeline’s weaker/pampered character took me by surprise. I would’ve preferred her to be a stronger heroine to the hero’s beta, but still applauded the times the heroine did show a backbone.

If the curiosity bug bit you-read on: You can find out how Weston got his facial scar by reading In the Heat of the Bite. I guarantee it’ll leave you speechless! It did me.

Recommendations: Like scarred heroes? Wes is such a hero.

For readers who love reckless and handsome beta wolves, the opposites attracting tropes, and the good-girl gone-bad heroines. Also for anyone who enjoys siblings teetering from conflict to camaraderie, but who at their very core are still loving and loyal.

Disclaimer: I received this novel free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

What’s Next? Wolfishly Yours. (Grayson and Liviana’s story). Grayson is Weston’s twin brother.

Get into Bed with Lydia Dare (Author Interview 2)

Susan: If a genie could bring your writing muse to life, what would he/she look like?

Tammy: It would be a man that resembles my husband who says, “Get your ass in the chair and write something.” That’s all it takes for me. To get my rear end in the chair in a quiet place. No muse required.

Ava: I am the least observant person you’ll ever meet. So if I saw my muse, I wouldn’t recognize her/him.

Susan: And do you share the same one? One evening with Tammy. The next with Ava?

Tammy: We are VERY different, so I don’t think our muses would even like one another, much less choose to hang out together. Unless there was alcohol involved.

Ava: That is absolutely true. We are night and day. I can’t imagine our muses hanging out.

Susan: Please tell LRP readers who “you” think is the sexiest Hadley brother. I for one, am voting for (Wes) Weston. He’s the sexy scarred twin. Yummalicious!

Tammy: He’s a little too beta for me. I like the alpha heroes a little bit more, like the one we’re writing now – Archer Hadley (who’s the oldest Hadley gentleman).

Ava: Oh, there’s something delicious about each of them. Yes, Wes is a beta (there can only be one alpha after all). But he loves Maddie so much. He would swim across the ocean for her or climb Mt. Everest. I would love a guy to love me as much as Wes does Maddie.

Susan: If I were to gaze into a crystal ball and say, “The Wolf Who Loved Me!” Who or what would I see?

Tammy: I hope you would see a somewhat spoiled girl who grows into a character with a spine of steel at the end. And a hero who loved her from day one, and finds even more to love her for as she grows.

Ava: As Maddie is very much like me in personality, I think I’m taking a little offense to the “spoiled girl” comment. ;)

Susan: (Confessions from a reader): If I don’t take time to read, I resemble something the wolf dragged in…while he was foxed. Yep. Stress does NOT look good on me. See, reading isn’t just a hobby. It’s a necessity. And some authors think their jobs insignificant.

Tammy (Confessions from an author): If I don’t read, my creativity well dries up. I try to avoid things I’m writing, like wolves or fantasy, if I’m writing wolves or fantasy, but I read EVERYTHING ELSE. I have to keep reading and if I ever get bogged down in a really bad book, I have to force myself to read something new or I feel like my writing is dragging me through sludge every time I sit down at the computer.

Ava (Confessions from an author): If I don’t have a project waiting for me, I get fidgety. I can’t remember a time I’ve ever been “caught up” on all deadlines. I am overbooked with too much to do, but the idea of having nothing on the horizon scares me to death.

Susan: Could you help a girl in need? I’m searching for a speedy way to snag me a Hadley. And since Lady Madeline’s been eyeing Wes, how can I win over Archer or Grayson?

LD: Well, I think you’re out of luck. You have to:

  • Catch one of them in the process of shifting into wolf form so he’ll haul you off to Gretna.
  • Have a Lycan birthmark of your very own on your inner thigh (that he just can’t stop thinking about).
  • You’ll have to be the prize in a game of cards. (This one might actually be do-able…)

Susan: Do you have any idea how many hours I’ve logged in just staring at your covers? Too many! That’s how many. And I’m going to add loads more. What say you of The Wolf Who Loved Me cover?

LD: It’s our best cover ever! It has the historical mixed evenly with the handsome man and the woman in appropriate dress. The setting is perfect and the background is so believable. We couldn’t be happier with it!

Susan: (Siblings and their commonalities): My sister and I love reading Lydia Dare novels. Actually, Isabel reviewed Never Been Bit last year while I was on vacation. Yep. Started a feud that’ll be discussed for many Thanksgivings to come. Lol.

Tammy: My sister and I have a Thanksgiving tradition as well. I don’t eat meat so I usually make a big eggplant parmesan to take to dinner. My sister loves it so much that it has become a family tradition for me to hide it and pretend I didn’t make it. The kids get into the action and she spends a bit of time looking for it. It’s a crazy thing to do, but it makes me happy to see her doubt whether or not I made her favorite dish!

Ava: Other than shared genetics, I don’t have a thing in common with any of my siblings. I don’t even look like them. They’re all tall with pretty blue eyes. I’m not tall and my eyes are hazel. But personality-wise, you will not find four more diametrically different people as my sister, my brothers and me.

Susan: Do the Hadley brothers have any shared commonalities? A love of brandy perhaps?

LD: They share a love of women, spirits and all of them have a penchant for getting in trouble! They also share the need for an alpha, since their dad died fairly young. It’s not until Dashiel Thorpe finds his way into their pack that they realize what it’s like to have a leader. Or someone to whom they should be accountable.

Susan: This area is for shameless self-promotion. What would you like to share with LRP readers?

LD: We just finished Wolfishly Yours, which is the next book in this series. It features Grayson Hadley and Liviana Mayeux, who just happens to be from New Orleans. We’re currently writing the last book in the series, which is Archer’s story.

By the way, Tammy has a release writing as Tammy Falkner in September, called A Lady and Her Magic. Faeries in Regency England!

And Ava has several straight Regency Historicals (meaning no wolves, vamps or witches) as Ava Stone on shelves as well.

Review: Cat Scratch Fever by Jodi Redford

Cat Scratch FeverReviewed by Susan S.

Summary: Lilly Prescott’s grandfather lost a whopping 60 acres of land during a poker game gone wrong. And who benefited? Dante Morgan’s father (Foster). Now Lilly will do anything to reclaim the property which should belong to her family. Not if, but when she gets the land, Lilly (heroine) plans to build a private retreat for the Lynchat Foundation. Oh, sorry `bout the oversight. Prescott is a lynx shifter.

The heroine is willing to pay reasonably for the land, but Dante’s not asking for money. And his wolfish proposition is something Lilly would never Ever consider. At least not with all her faculties intact.

With no love lost between Dante and Lilly, can a sexy wolf convince a feisty cat to play nice? Or will he become Lilly’s new scratching post?

Review: Whenever I begin a new Jodi Redford novel I know I’m in for a treat. If you’ve never read her books-you’re missing out on what I call triple-shot spicy reads. The author gives new meaning to lovin’ thy self. Phew! And in Cat Scratch Fever Redford continues her crowd-pleasing modus operandi. Just you wait and see!

I thought the suspense was great and I despised the antagonists. Which is precisely what I want to feel when the author writes them as they should be written-as extra nasty! I did feel though, that an epilogue could’ve added a little something extra to the story’s conclusion.

Thought Bubble: Here’s hoping that Dante’s cousin, Theo, can have his very own story someday. He’s a sheriff. (Insert saucy grin here).

Recommendations: For readers who zealously seek out those damsel-in-distress stories (which have the hero miraculously saving the day). Recommended for those with a fondness for the enemies (I want to murder him in his sleep) to lovers (I want mad-passionate-sex) tropes. Paranormal romance readers will get a kick knowing the H is a werewolf and the h is a lynx shifter. The erotic romantic elements play a pivotal role in the story. So if you love those erotic romances, you’ll no doubt love Cat Scratch Fever.

When the Alpha’s Away, the She-wolf Will Play

Guest post by Terry Spear, author of A SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing

Now, first, I must make it perfectly clear that an alpha male and female wolf mate for life, and that my werewolves do the same. So what is this implying? That a she-wolf is straying?

Nope! This is Meara Greymere, Hunter’s sister, and they’re from the gorgeous coast of Oregon where they moved after a forest fire had burned the pack’s homes in California in To Tempt the Wolf.

In To Tempt the Wolf, Meara was searching for a mate, and several fans were hopeful that she would find one. But Hunter has always been an obstacle in her finding the right man to do the job. So now that his mate, Tessa, has convinced him to take her on a honeymoon to Hawaii, the she-wolf, Meara, is ready to play.

She has the whole plan worked out. Hunter and Tessa have left her in charge of the cabin resort on the coast, and she’s filling them up with bachelor alpha males—wolf types, as fast as she can because she has only two weeks to find the right guy with no interference from Hunter.

The plan’s working! Hunky alpha male, Bjornolf Jorgenson, arrives on the scene and she’s interested. Very interested. Until she realizes one of Hunter’s SEAL team mates is also in her cabin, Finn Emerson, and he’s there to protect her from danger. Yeah, you know, alpha male wolf line if you ever heard one, right?

But it’s true! He’s there to protect and to serve. And man does he know how to serve. She’s not about to fall for one of Hunter’s SEALs though. No way, Jose. Why? Because none of them have a settle-down-and-find-a-mate bone in their body. So he’s not even on her list of mateable prospects and there is no way he is going to mess this up for her.

Remember, she has only two weeks to look over a bevy of hunky alpha wolves before her brother returns and puts a halt to the whole thing.

But Finn has other ideas. She’s either crashing Hunter’s honeymoon where HE can protect her, not cool, or she is staying with Finn.

And staying with him is going to get her…and him, into a lot of hot water. Believe me. The sexual tension between the two is sizzling!!

It’s all my editor’s fault, really! Deb Werksman loved that Hunter was a SEAL in book 3, and so she remarked that it would be cool if he was part of a SEAL team of wolves. Yes!

I kept that in the back of my mind and when so many asked me to write Meara’s story, I knew it was perfect. Who better to tame her wild and impulsive ways but an equally wild and untameable SEAL? Ah yes, opposites attract, right? Or do they? Maybe two wild and impulsive wolves will do the trick. Or not.

Remember, he’s not settling down. The sea’s in his blood. And she’s definitely land bound.

And never the twain shall meet. Except when danger lurks and the sexual tension erupts and well, you just never know what will happen when the alpha male is away and the she-wolf comes out to play!

Would you be interested in playing with one hot SEAL of the alpha wolf variety?

A SEAL IN WOLF’S CLOTHING BY TERRY SPEAR – IN STORES MARCH 2012

Her instincts tell her he’s dangerous…

While her overprotective brother’s away, Meara Greymere’s planning to play—and it wouldn’t hurt to find herself a mate in the process. The last thing she needs is one of his SEAL buddies spoiling her fun, even if the guy is the hottest one she’s ever seen…

His powers of persuasion are impossible to resist…

Finn Emerson is a battle-hardened Navy SEAL and alpha wolf. He’s a little overqualified for baby-sitting, but feisty Meara is attracting trouble like a magnet…

As the only responsible alpha male in the vicinity, Finn is going to have to protect this intriguing woman from a horde of questionable men, and definitely from himself…
