Blurb: 

Alessandra is forced to adopt a name that isn’t really hers, when she returns to Austria to claim an inheritance…that isn’t really hers. She’s certain that her Romany grandmother left her the property nestled in the foothills of the Alps.

Raul, heir to the Stirling dukedom, is determined to unmask Alessandra’s masquerade. He knows she’s lying. More importantly, he needs the same property she’s claiming, and he’s sure that his need is more desperate than hers. Because the duke is not all he seems, either.

This battle will be fiercely waged.

Not in a court of law.

But in the hearts of Alessandra and her fairy-tale duke.

Author Interview
 

Hello and welcome, readers! We have Carly Carson here with us today. Carly, Thanks for visiting us.

Thanks for having me.



How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing? 

I’ve been writing all my life. My cousin and I used to exchange stories we made up via snail mail. I started professional writing when I won an entry in a Harlequin Round Robin writing contest. They asked if I had any submissions anywhere in their office. Sadly, I did not. But I was hooked!



Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine’s Day Anthology.

My title, Royal Masquerade, is part of my series about British dukes.



Blurb: A kingdom of the heart is hard to hold onto…



Alessandra adopts a name that isn’t really hers, when she returns to Austria to claim an inheritance…that isn’t really hers. She must claim her Romany grandmother’s property, which is all that’s left of her family and her childhood.



Raul, heir to the Stirling dukedom, must unmask Alessandra’s masquerade. Because he needs the same property she’s claiming, and his need is more desperate. Because the duke is not all he seems, either. 



The battle will be fiercely waged. 

Not in a court of law.

But in the hearts of Alessandra and her fairy-tale duke.



How did you come up with the storyline? 

I had already started a series about British dukes. I’ve always been interested in marginalized people, and how they retain their cultures, so I knew I wanted to incorporate the Romany people, which required me to move the story to Europe. Then I love to ski, so I thought it would be fun to include a bit of that sport. And voila! Royal Masquerade was born.



What inspires you to write? 

I’m inspired by my love of romance. I want everyone to have a happily ever after, which I can at least achieve in my books, if not in real life!



What is your favorite genre to read? 

I read most every romance genre, but my favorites are contemporary, military, and romantic suspense. 



What would you say is the one thing you are most passionate about outside of writing? 

Of course, the number one thing is my family. But who wouldn’t say that? I do love to travel, whether it’s hopping in the car for a day trip to an unknown destination, or a carefully planned holiday someplace exotic. I have to be busy on my vacations, preferring to see all the sights, rather than relaxing on a sunny beach. I’m truly passionate about seeking out gorgeous scenery, and wildlife.



When you are not writing, what do you like to do? 

I love to read, of course. I love many sports like all paddle sports, skiing, exercise classes, swimming, etc. I’m a big board game enthusiast. I love traveling and entertaining, and being with friends and family.



Tell us about your other books.

Duke of Devonwood is the first in my series of books about British dukes. Sparks fly as Miranda plots to gain control of her inheritance from a modern day Duke who tries his best to resist her wiles.



Let’s see. If you like military romance, I have Taken by a Navy SEAL: A Navy SEAL follows the rules. A desperate American woman, his accidental captive, must break them.



If you like billionaires, I’ve written a few books in that genre, including Seduced by the Billionaire: To save her sister, a sexy businesswoman accepts a mysterious, high-paying job with a hot business tycoon. But he thinks he’s hired a new mistress. 



Also in the contemporary genre, I have several shorter novels/novellas with a touch of paranormal which are known as the Love Charm series. A group of young women friends are each, in turn, gifted by a fortuneteller with a silver bean to use in a love charm. Can each of them find what she seeks, even if the right choice is well hidden?

Carly loves hearing from her readers.

Author Interview
 

Hello and welcome, readers! We have Roxy Matthews here with us today. Roxy, thanks for visiting us.

Thank you for having me. 



How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

Of course, I grew with an intoxicating desire for books, as most authors do. Not only did I live through reading the stories, but in penning my own. I was close to ten when I started work on my first book. Of course, back then it was just a bunch of lined paper folded in half, but it meant so much to me to sit in that open pavilion on a wooden picnic table, a pencil in one hand, an eraser in the other, my imagination on fire. But, sadly, it fizzled away until I was in my early twenties, when I finally sat down once more, this time with a notebook and pen, never to let that fire be doused again. 



Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine’s Day Anthology.

Perfect Stranger is a story of two troubled souls, who after just one volatile meeting change each other’s lives. Pam Mason, tortured by the death of her husband, had forgotten how to live. With the help of her best friend, Pam is set on a ‘New Year, New You’ path that leads her to Doctor Thorpe’s couch and his lack of compassion. Michael Thorpe, traumatized from being dragged through the mud by his ex, was about to lose his standing in the medical field until Pam Mason tears him a new one. With forces beyond their control at work, the two find their way through their pasts to a future that promises beautiful memories.

How did you come up with the storyline?

In all honesty, it started as a RomCom, with three blind dates and was meant to revolve around those dates with Doctor Thorpe being the final one. 

Enter ‘Knight in Shining Armor’. Perfect, right?

Nope, because Pam was not on board with her terrible dates being aired out to the public, and Michael Thorpe was not playing nice. So, my plans had to change because both had issues they needed to work through and refused to follow with my comedic approach.



What inspires you to write?

This question always befuddles me because I don’t actually need to be inspired to write. I just do it. Daily. You know when you have something running through your head over and over and over, that you just have to get it out? That’s how writing is for me. Everyday my mind is going, and in all that noise of work, life, bills, and stress, voices come through. Voices that refuse to quiet, stories that demand my attention, unwilling to budge until I put those words to keys. 

What is your favorite genre to read?

I absolutely love Dark Fantasy and Romantic Suspense, give me some good Horror, Psychological or otherwise, and I am popcorn deep, my toes hidden under a blanket from the ghosties. 

What would you say is the one thing you are most passionate about outside of writing?

Easy one, my babies and grandbabies. Just those darn smiles from any of them is enough to melt my heart and turn me to goo.



When you are not writing, what do you like to do?

Bahaha. What? You mean there’s time to do anything other than work and write? I seriously need to watch a webinar on this one. 

Tell us about your other books.

Well, I have nine other pieces and considering I love to cross genre and genre hop, they are a mix. I have one short story collection which is more macabre, titled ‘From the Depths’. A novelette, ‘Hypno-Planticus’ of Sci/Fi origin, another Sci/Fi mixed with Fantasy is my novella, ‘Holiday Resistance’.  My Romantic Suspense endeavor is a five-book series, Pale Bay Treasures. And to finish, a Dark Fantasy three-book series I am currently working on. The first installment, Fame Nor Fortune is live, it’s sequel Dead Nor Alive is currently underway.



Where can readers find you?

Plenty of places actually, which I’ll list below, but a google search of my penname, Roxy Matthews, will find plenty of resources throughout my career.

All the Teacher’s Valentines by N.J.

Blurb:


I’ve never had a Valentine’s Day date.

And I’m a twenty-five-year-old virgin.

Laugh at me all you want, but I truly believe I’m cursed. Otherwise why do all my boyfriends break up with me right before Valentine’s Day? Or when it’s time for that third date?

This year is no different, except when I have a meltdown at the mall, screaming to the world how I think I can be very good in bed if someone actually gives me a chance, a man, Kyle, tells me his cousin Zach can help me with my…issue. The only thing I have to do is go on a fake date with Zach to Kyle’s wedding.

I agree, but when I go to his house, I discover Zach is my student’s hot single parent’s twin. And when I’m snowed in with the three Beastly hunks for the holiday, scorching secrets unravel and threaten to tear us all apart.

Could I finally have my Valentine’s Day date and eventually lose my V-card to one of these three gorgeous men? Or will this holiday leave me more cursed than I’ve ever been?

Author Interview
 

Hello and welcome, readers! We have N.J. Adel here with us today. N.J., Thanks for visiting us.

Always a pleasure. Thank you for having me.



How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

A writer since I was eight. I was obsessed with Power Rangers and MG adventures in general, so I wrote my own. It got published in the school magazine. But I didn’t revisit that passion till recently. Several of my short non Romance stories have been published under a different name, and I published my first full length last July.



Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine’s Day Anthology.

All the Teacher’s Valentines is a sweet, contemporary reverse harem novella. It features a virgin teacher, three potential dates, and one hot proposition.



How did you come up with the storyline?

The teacher theme has started with my newest series All the Teacher’s Pets. Two full length standalones have been released so far, and three more coming this year. I wanted to write something related to that bestselling reverse harem series, yet different to fit the Valentine’s Day mood. The series is paranormal with extra steam, yet All the Teacher’s Valentines is contemporary and sweet. Depends on the success and feedback I’ll get for that one, I’ll decide if I’ll extend it to a full length that is maybe not too sweet lol. 



What inspires you to write?

Anything. A dream, a feeling, a song, a book of another author…



What is your favorite genre to read?

Dystopian, vampires, psycho drama, femdom steam…



What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about outside of writing?

Chocolate lol…ok, seriously, it’s my old job. I used to teach at college. There has been nothing more satisfying for me than standing in a lecture room.



When you are not writing, what do you like to do?

Watching movies, lots and lots of them. Listening to rock music. Spending time with my husband and daughter fishing and doing beach activities.



Tell us about your other books.

I write contemporary, paranormal, fantasy and historical spicy romance. Generally, I write in reverse harem and motorcycle club sub genres, but I dabble in straight contemporary romance as well. Her Royal Harem is a femdom reverse harem erotic historical romance that’s very dear to my heart. Seratis is an Egyptian Goddess reverse harem fantasy that I plan to finish the second half of this year. Nine Minutes complete motorcycle club trilogy is a dark and gritty series that tears me apart every time I come close to it. And finally, my latest series of interconnected standalones, All the Teacher’s Pets has vampires, werewolves, unusual shifters, faes, dragons, motorcycle club bad boys and paranormal prisoners, and all the sexy spicy teacher/student, twins, brothers and brother’s best friends taboos. There’s something for everyone.

Four years ago, Lachlan Begay moved to London and broke my heart.

Every time Lach visits Scotland, we fall back into old patterns that result in new hurts.

My hurts.

Now, my heart is breaking for a different reason.

Preparing my nanna’s final Valentine’s Day gala at our family farm, the last person I need twisting my emotions is Lachlan.

But here he is, setting me on fire with a single glance. 

This time, he swears he’s mine.

This time, he promises me a future.

This time, he says all the words I’ve been waiting years to hear.

The only problem? 

I don’t believe him.

Author Interview
 

Hello and welcome, readers! We have Gina Azzi here with us today. Gina, Thanks for visiting us.

Hi there! Thanks for having me.



How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

 I’ve been writing since I was a little kid, making up short stories and plays for my friends to act out. In 2011, I started taking writing classes in New York City for fun and to meet other writers. When I moved abroad in 2012, I continued the courses online and began expanding a piece of flash fiction into my first novel, Corner of Ocean and Bay. In 2015, I moved to Dubai and learned I was pregnant with my first daughter. That’s when I began self-publishing and never looked back!



Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine’s Day Anthology.

One Great Love is a sweet and spicy second chance romance set in Scotland. It’s a novella focused on acceptance and forgiveness between Lachlan and Keira, college sweethearts with a complicated past. 



How did you come up with the storyline?

One Great Love is a novella spinoff from the Finding Love in Scotland Series! So the second chance romance aspect was quite natural and part of Lachlan’s story from One Last Chance and This Time Around!



What inspires you to write?

Everything! My family, my friends, articles I read and movies I watch. So many different ideas and storylines fill my head, especially when a particular issue interests me, and then I can’t not write. 



What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance! I love the marriage of convenience trope and military romance. 



What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about outside of writing?

Traveling! I love the adventure of going to new places, trying new things, and meeting new people. I search the internet for destinations and flights the way my friends check out home décor! 



When you are not writing, what do you like to do?

Be with my family. My kids are at super fun ages where I get to enjoy all their imagined games and act like a kid myself. We love Friday night pizza parties, Sunday brunch, and all the spontaneous dance parties. 



Tell us about your other books.



I have three interconnected series out with a new, super angsty duet releasing in Spring.

The Kane Brothers, starting with Rescuing Broken, is a second-chance military romance that will introduce you to the hot and charming Kane boys. 



The College Pact series has four sports romances featuring resilient heroines. Start with The Last First Game for an unexpected love between a sexy, football God and the medical intern he falls for!



Finding Love in Scotland is all about second chances set in Edinburgh. Begin with One Last Chance (and meet Daisy Kane from The Kane Brothers!)



Corner of Ocean and Bay — my first novel — is a YA romance about first loves and friendship. 



Keep an eye out for The Regret Duet, kicking off with Broken Lies, in March 2020!

Her Match, Her Mate, Her Master by Vanessa Brooks

I am thrilled to feature a historical romance today by fellow Blushing Books author, Vanessa Brooks.  This cover intrigued me and had me wanting to know more. 

her match her mate

Now that my youngest has graduated high school, and we had an awesome trip to London (her choice, my first visit, and I must say, she chose wisely) I feel like I can get back into my writing and reading.  This is on my must read list.

A headstrong English Lady who is no match for her ruggedly determined American husband!

Blurb:

A tempestuous honeymoon, shipwreck, adventure…

A shrewd, rugged American travels the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean in order to meet a beautiful, spoiled aristocratic English girl.

Adventure awaits this mismatched couple, leading Linnet to become taken by natives. Can an English rose flourish in the wilds of America?

Excerpt:

She pulled the rug up under her chin, staring warily over it with narrowed eyes, while failing to repress her shivering.

“Now what is the matter?” he asked. “Look, as much as I would like to put you over my knee and spank you soundly, which incidentally, you do very much deserve. I think we must concentrate on getting you warm, if not dry, before you catch your death from cold. Just look how wet you are!” He took hold of the blanket and pulled it away from her. “Come now, there’s a good girl, let’s get you as dry as we can,” he coaxed.

He’d intended to rub her briskly with the blanket, but when he stretched out his hand, she whipped forward and sunk her teeth deep into his wrist, drawing blood. “Yee-ouch! Why you spiteful baggage. I have a good mind to- You have been asking for this you little brat, well that’s decided it, I’m going to warm you up properly!”

Provoked beyond endurance and recalling her vicious attack upon him earlier in the evening, not to mention her ill-mannered behaviour over the past few days! He hauled Linnet across his knee, determined to teach her a much needed lesson in manners. Raising his arm he proceeded to spank her with emphasis. Her head was smothered in the wet wool rug, which hampered her struggles and muffled her cries. She managed to sink her teeth into John’s thigh, although the blanket took the worst of the bite, he jumped and gritted his teeth, compelled; he taught the English harridan a lesson she’d not soon forget.

Hidden Embers (Book 1 Bride of Fire) by Jane Burrelli #fantasyromance #spankingromance #mustread

What happens when the forbidden is fated?

hidden embers

Looking for a weekend read?  Jane Burrelli’s Hidden Embers sounds like a very interesting read.  It’s a fantasy romance and contains elements of danger, suspense, mystery, adventure, and sensual scenes set in an apocalyptic world.  If that and the cover aren’t enough to have you heading over to get your copy, let me share more.

BLURB:

When the gods breathed life into us, they blessed us with an element. It’s a pity they didn’t care to bless anything else.

The Empress of the Throne of Flames is assassinated. Acting as a decoy to protect the next Empress, the undervalued Princess Nymira flees to the north. She must now carry the sacred sword, the symbol of her people and rejoin the Empress.

It is a mission Mira cannot fail but first, she must traverse the Western wastelands. The journey is perilous and the once sheltered princess finds herself rescued by the Ice Lord, Zorren. The leader of the Iceari, the natural enemy to Firelanders.

Zorren is reputed to be a ruthless leader and Mira fights the attraction that blazes between them. Resulting in a clash of not only their wills but also their elements. After all, fire and ice don’t mix. Or do they?

This is book one of the new Bride of Fire series. Join the journey to a mystical world and the adventure and romance that awaits.

Excerpt:

“You must have an escort and act in a ladylike manner at all times, you are my mate and represent me. Most importantly, you will keep that famous, impulsive Firelander temper under control and never call your fire against me.”

My Firelander temper was sparking nicely at that exact moment. Somehow, I resisted shooting a jet of flame at his backside. I stared straight at him in challenge. “Or what?”

“I will not hesitate to discipline you, it is my duty as your mate.”

“You what!” I screeched unable to prevent it from bursting out. The rules were not so different from what I had lived under before, but this was new, and I didn’t like it one bit. As long as I didn’t draw notice my aunt had let me do as I wished.

“I will put this in terms you might understand.” My eyes were on his firm lips. “You try to roast me, and I will not hesitate to heat that delectable backside as a very displeased mate.”

“Ha!” I scoffed in his face, my iron-clad control malfunctioning. “I’d like to see you try.”

Author Bio:

When I realised that the world was not hiring for a ‘sarcastic but benign Supreme Ruler of the Universe’ I’ve decided to focus on my passion. By day I work in a UK company’s finance department and by night I become my alter ego Scribble Girl or as my good friends have affectionately dubbed me the ‘sex author’. Always armed with a notepad and pen in the black hole I call a handbag, I have been writing never ending stories since the age of 11 and this all stemmed from my love of reading.

I love reading. Period!

I’m part of the Harry Potter generation and while waiting between books would literally devour any book I could get my hands on. Let’s put it this way J.K Rowling has a lot to answer for. I adore that there is no end in sight to where your own imagination can take you and that between the pages of a book you are transported to another world.

Happy Reading!

Her Gilded Dragon by Susannah Shannon #newrelease #spankingromance #fantasy

I’m happy to have Susannah Shannon returning today and sharing her new release, Her Gilded Dragon.  This one is a fantasy and it sounds great.  Check out this cover (whoa, fanning self).

her gilded dragonBuy link:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BZW26Q7

Blurb:

After she is forced to flee her kingdom with the aid of a loyal general, Princess Hanne of Vastra begins a long, arduous journey to the frozen lands far to the north, where she will be married to Jonis the Gilded, the famed warrior who defends the great fortress of Pinnacle Keep.
Though Hanne is intimidated by his fearsome reputation, upon reaching her destination she is put at ease by Jonis’ good humor and amazed by the pleasure his skilled, dominant lovemaking brings her on their wedding night. But when she challenges his authority, the beautiful young princess quickly learns the hard way that her new husband will not hesitate to bare her bottom and spank her until she is tearful and repentant.
To Hanne’s surprise, the stern chastisement merely increases her desire for Jonis, and soon their lust for one another has grown into a passionate love. But when the foes who drove her from her own land threaten Hanne’s new home, will Jonis’ skill in battle prove sufficient to protect the woman he loves or will the ancient power that burns in his blood be his only hope to save her?

Excerpt:

She was being shaken awake. She forced herself to open her eyes. “Come, my love,” said Jonis. She sat up as he knelt and slipped boots onto her bare feet. She was only wearing a shift, but she held her arms up so he could slip a woolen dress over her. He threw a fur over his shoulder and taking her hand, led her through the keep. He half carried her up many stairs. They threaded through rooms she hadn’t seen before and the air got distinctly colder. They went through a series of doors, and even before he opened the last one, the air was so cold that it burned when she inhaled. He led her out onto the battlements. The sky was on fire. The dancing lights that she had first seen on the dog sled turned the sky colors that melted into one another. “They are beautiful,” she gasped.
He chuckled. “Yes, but that’s not why I brought you out here.” He pointed to the north side of the wall. Under the dancing sky the ground appeared to be moving. Her eyes adjusted, and as far as she could see, a herd of the largest animals she had ever seen moved slowly in a winding river of tusks and curly fur.
“I didn’t think they were real,” she whispered.
“Wooly mammoths?” he asked. “Of course they are real, but only on the northern side of the wall. They can’t cross.”
Skulking on the edge of the herd, a menacing figure crouched. The mammoths sensed the snow tiger and began to stampede. The tiger didn’t seem to be able to find a vulnerable member of the herd. The moonlight glinted on its rapier-like front teeth.
