Your Wolfish Heart by Erzabet Bishop & Gina Kincade ~Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine's Day Anthology Author Spotlight Interview @erzabetbishop #witches #shifters #otherworldly #Valentinesdayromance #supernaturalromance #pnr #paranormalromance #BeMyValentine #Valentineread #romancereads #anthology #collection #holidayromance #shifterlove


Blurb:

App Tastic...
They were supposed to have the app live by Valentine’s Day. At least that was what Paige’s brother, Rafe, agreed to. Now here she was hoping and praying that with a little goddess power, and whole lot of technological know-how, he and his team can pull off a V-Day miracle.

Flower power...
Valentine’s Day was Liv’s least favorite holiday, even if she was part owner of Bluebonnet’s, one of the busiest flower shops in town. The holiday coinciding with her daughter’s death at the hands of a drunk driver, and then her marriage dissolving, was just another reminder of how empty her life was. But when a very familiar doctor starts coming into the shop, she feels a tug on her heartstrings, not to mention her lady bits, and wonders if maybe there is someone out there for her after all.

A Wolf in Need…
Dr. Thomas Merton fills his days tending to the needs of others, but he can’t ever forget the dark-haired woman who lost her child to a drunk driver. Not one to poach on another man’s woman, he put his wolf’s attraction and his own on the back burner. But when a fortuitous meeting at a local flower shop leads to a second chance at making a connection, can his wolf convince them both that the right kind of love is worth everything?

Author Interview


Hello and welcome, readers! We have Erzabet Bishop here with us today. Erzabet, Thanks for visiting us.
Thanks for having me!

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve always been a writer, but I’ve only gotten very serious about it in the last seven years.

Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine's Day Anthology.
My title is called Your Wolfish Heart and it’s a part of the Shifting Heart Dating App series. It features shifters, some steamy scenes, and more than one scene to make you laugh. Gina Kincade and I collaborated on this one and it was a lot of fun.

How did you come up with the storyline?
I love writing about shifters more than anything else. The dual-natured characters really appeal to me. Gina and I decided to do a spin off series from the Shifting Hearts Dating Agency series shared world, and incorporating a dating app as the newest additions to it all seemed like a perfect idea.  

What inspires you to write?
Everyday life. You know that shirt that says be careful or you’ll end up in my novel? More chances than not, if I see it or hear it, it gets filed away for future use. Lol.

What is your favorite genre to read?
I have so many! At the moment I am reading a YA fractured fairytale, a thriller, some business books and a book on children’s picture books. 

What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about outside of writing?
Dogs. They rule my life

When you are not writing, what do you like to do?
I love reading in bed with the dogs, watching Netflix or Prime, going to the movies with my hubby and trying out new restaurants. 

Tell us about your other books.
I have over forty titles out there. Most are paranormal romance. Make sure you sign up for my newsletter because this year has a lot of new releases set to roll out.

He’s a ghost.

Author Interview


Hello and welcome, readers! We have Tricia Schneider here with us today. Tricia, thanks for visiting us.
Thank you for sharing your corner of the internet with me today!

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been writing since I was a teenager. I wrote my first novel during summer vacation when I was 15, inspired by a strange dream that I had one night. It was a fantasy romance, one that I still think of often. My first book was published in 2010 by The Wild Rose Press, and I’ve been publishing books ever since.

Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine's Day Anthology.
My book is a paranormal ghost romance called Her Haunted Valentine. It’s about a woman named Wendy who is searching for Mr. Right. A friend sets her up on a blind date for Valentine’s Day. Magnus appears instead and sweeps her off her feet. But she doesn’t suspect at first that the sweet and charming Magnus is a ghost.

How did you come up with the storyline?
I got the idea a few years ago around Valentine’s Day. I had been thinking about what might happen to a woman who fell in love with a ghost. The scene of her waiting for a blind date popped into my head. Slowly, the rest fell into place.

What inspires you to write?
There’s an urge somewhere deep inside me to write the images that I see in my head. It’s always been there. However, my children inspire me to pursue publishing those stories. I’ve always wanted to be an author. It wasn’t until I became a mother that I began to seriously pursue publication. I want to teach my kids that dreams can come true. I also want them to be proud of me.

What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance. Anything romance. I need the guarantee of a happily-ever-after. I’m also drawn to spooky stuff. I love vampires, witches, werewolves and ghosts. So paranormal romance is a perfect fit for me. And my passion for history leads me to historical romance. My absolute favorite is when those two subgenres are blended together.                              

What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about outside of writing?
Traveling. I love to see new places. I’ve traveled to two countries as well as almost every state in the eastern USA. My goal is to go back to Europe. I love visiting castles and learning the history of those countries. They make wonderful settings for stories!

When you are not writing, what do you like to do?
Spending time with my four kids. I’ve got three boys and a girl between the ages of 13 and 4. When they’re not driving me crazy, they make me laugh. Sometimes both at the same time! I like to take them on road trips as often as possible, even if it’s just as simple as a trip to B&N which for us is about an hour away. We explore our area of Pennsylvania, and I enjoy teaching them the local history. I enjoy learning more of it, too. 

I’m also a volunteer graveyard photographer. I travel to local cemeteries and take photos of gravestones to record for genealogy sites and anyone who is searching for relatives or ancestors. I started by seeking my own buried family members while researching my family tree. My kids like to help me with these projects, too, so it’s become more of a family hobby in the summer months.

Tell us about your other books.
I write novels, novellas and short stories with both sweet and steamy heat levels. Most of my stories reflect my passion for history and the supernatural. 

The Merriweather Witches are paranormal romances set in Regency era England about a family of witches. I also have a few pirate romances as well as several other standalone paranormal romances. 

My newest series is about a family of cougar shifters which begins with Loving Boone. I have 4 more paranormal romances scheduled for release in the next few months.

Where can readers find you?

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?

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?

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.

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.

Love, Creativity & Magick by Kiki Howell ~Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine's Day Anthology Author Spotlight Interview @KikiHowell7 #romancereaders #witches #magic #vampires #pnr #bookboyfriend #paranormalromance #romancereads #anthology #collection #holidayromance #spicyromreads


Blurb:

All acts of magick take on shades of gray in the end. Especially for Emma, one of four, female witches, who, by birthright, belongs in the social circles of the privileged, upper ten thousand in London. Yet, by rumor of the unknown and the misunderstood, she stands apart, cut by her peers along with her cousins.

Most of their nights at parties and balls were spent creating a magickal comedy of errors. Nowhere was the color of steam more evident than helping the uptight aristocracy side step their fastidious standards. Only, this year, Emma is not quite sure what is happening to her. Something dark and seductive, something not of this world, is luring her, possessing her, and she has no comprehension of what, or who, the presence really is.

When he does finally show his face, and she feels him to be a nightwalker, she must fear not only the threat he poses to her blood and to the magick he can suck from her, but also the danger he poses to her heart.

To complicate matters further, his propositions are as exciting as they are scandalous. When Valentine’s Day rolls around, a secret is revealed, leaving her even more unsure of her future.

Author Interview

Hello and welcome, readers! We have Kiki Howell here with us today. Kiki, Thanks for visiting us.
Thank you for having me. I'm excited to be here!

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
Well, I received my first publishing contract in 2007, but I have been "writing" per say since I can remember, back when people used to read me books and I would change them in my head later on. I finally grew up enough to think, hey maybe I should write one myself. 

Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine's Day Anthology.
Oh, it was so much fun to write, regency set, vampire and witch along with a healthy dose of steampunk with some spice added to the mix of genres!

How did you come up with the storyline?
I wanted to write a regency set steampunk, set out with a witch as my main character, as usual, then went with some what if questions. I somehow became intrigued by the idea that the vampire could harm her in more than the usual ways.

What inspires you to write?
Depends. All kinds of things from exploring old lore to a way to deal with a real life situation. Given I write paranormal, no one ever knows when I'm working out something from real life. Writing truly is therapy for me!

What is your favorite genre to read?
I actually split my time between darker paranormal to horror, like I write, to what I call "break times" where I read sweet romances. I do the same with movies. 

What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about outside of writing?
I'm also a yoga teacher, another means of therapy for me. I love to offer people ways to deal with the stress in their lives. 

When you are not writing, what do you like to do?
Wow, that is a long list: time with friends and family, reading (for pleasure and research), hiking, making homemade stuff with essential oils, yoga, knitting, binge watching TV, and on and on the list goes. I have too many hobbies. 

Tell us about your other books.
One of my favorite recent books is titled "Whiskey & Witchcraft." Another one that was a lot of fun to write. My first true bad boy main character in a full novel, that at points in writing it I wasn't even sure I could redeem. 

Where can readers find you?
Mainly all information is on my Website http://www.kikihowell.com/or I spend too much time playing on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/kikihowell

About the Author: 

Ever since she was young, Kiki Howell has loved to listen to a well-woven tale with real characters, inspired plots, and delightful resolutions. Kiki could spend hours lost in a book, and soon she knew that creating lives, loves, and losses with just words had to be the greatest thing that she could do. To that end, she pursued her study of literature and writing, earning a bachelor’s degree in English. She then followed in a Master’s program in Creative Writing.

“After a long break having my boys, I finally just had to write again. And, as soon as I gave the stories the space, they entered it. It’s both awesome and humbling to find the words in my mind become characters on a page and create their lives.”

She has now had over fifty stories published between eleven different publishers.  She could not be more thrilled or grateful to see her creations polished and out in the real world. Please look around. Although, a bit of caution, most of her stories tend to hang out on the graphically sexy side of town.

In May, 2011, Kiki was chosen as an Ohioana Book Festival author for her novel, Torn Asunder. She's also had three flash fiction stories win writing contests. Since the fall of 2013, she's had three novels - Hidden Salem, Salem's Revenge, and What Lies Within Us - hit Amazon Top 100 Bestsellers Lists in several categories like Paranormal, Suspense, Ghosts, Gothic Fiction, and Occult Horror. Most recently, the second in her Salem Series, Salem's Revenge, hit the Top 10 on Amazon in Witch & Wizard Thrillers. In October of 2017, Kiki hit the USA Today Bestsellers List.

In a different vein, in March 2015, Kiki coordinated and edited her first charity anthology, We Go On, with all proceeds going to veteran's charities. She's also published a children's book. 

Kiki resides in the Midwest with her incredibly handsome and talented, singer/songwriter husband and two children. When she is not writing, she is spending time with her family, reading, watching tv or knitting.
