About the Book

Title Mastering the Beast
Genre Erotic Paranormal-Romantic Comedy
Author Tina Donahue
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Surrender is the only option she desires.
Taming the Beast, Book 3
No one believes that under the tough attitude and schoolgirl fashion sense, reformed
demon Zoe burns for a man, love, and sex. She keeps those urges on ice and well hidden. She sold her soul for a guy once, and all it got her was a one-way ticket to Hell.
Her job, keeping supernatural creatures in line at From Crud to Stud, is all work and
no play. Until she’s saddled with a trio of new enforcers who ooze so much sexual heat she’s afraid to be on the same planet with them.
Stefin, Anatol, and Taro try to contain their laughter as their adorable new boss tries
to lay down the law. Apparently, no one told her they don’t take orders. They give them.
And they’re determined to smooth her rough edges and tame her beast with acts so wanton they’ll make her scream—for more.
Talk about all hell breaking loose. Surrender won’t come easily, but given their devilish
charm and her aching need, her journey to submission is one done deal.
Warning: Contains an unholy trio of demons who don’t like to take turns. Break room…snacking. After-hours…training sessions. In other words, a sensual ride on the pleasure express. Features m/f/m/m sex in every flavor except vanilla. Bring. It. On.

A quick interview with Elaine Violette, author of The Diary of Narcissa Dunn.

About the Author

Elaine writes British and American Historical Romances.  Part of the fun of writing Historicals, she says, is doing research into the past and creating characters that live and love in those sometimes glorious and sometimes harrowing times. A veteran English teacher, Elaine presently teaches public speaking part-time at a local community college. She is a member of Romance Writers of America and CT Romance Writers (CTRWA). Residing on the Connecticut shoreline with her golfing husband, Drew, she delights in being a wife, mother, and grandmother. Other favorite activities apart from reading and writing are nature walks, kayaking, and baking yummy desserts.

Interview with Elaine Violette

Why did you write this book?  
My inspiration for The Diary of Narcissa Dunn came from a morning walk in a local cemetery in Connecticut. I came upon a monument from 1808. Its epitaph for an 19 year old woman named Narcissa captured my heart. I copied the inscription and saved it, knowing I would write a story based on it someday. Two other books came before Narcissa’s manuscript but the voice of the epitaph refused to be stay buried in my memory. The inscription included in the plot, speaks loudly. This is truly a book of my heart.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical Romance both British Regencies and American Historicals. I enjoy not only the romance but also the rich historical backgrounds. I also love stories that bring in paranormal elements and The Diary of Narcissa Dunn is a ghostly love story.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Oliver, from Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. I’ve come across no author who creates such descriptive, enticing characters as Dickens. Just think of Miss Havisham  in
Great Expectations! Authors can learn so much from his detailed descriptions.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
The Diary of Narcissa Dunn is the first in the Redemption series. Presently, I’m working on Book Two, which will continue the story of Olivia and her family.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Tensions rise between Reverend Fuller and his daughter Olivia when he attempts to control her choice of a husband. As Olivia experiences strange recurring dreams, other mysterious events create chaos in the parsonage, leaving the family on edge. Meanwhile, Benjamin Pratt, desperately in love with Olivia, discovers an old diary that reveals shocking secrets. He becomes an unwilling messenger, torn between revealing truths that could shatter Olivia’s heart, or destroy the diary and watch her marry another. Either way, he’s bound to lose her unless a mysterious woman intervenes.

About the Book

Title Of the Cowboy’s Own Accord
Genre Contemporary Western Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Army Ranger Dane Carlson never means to fall in love before leaving for another tour of duty, but unexpectedly, he does. While deployed, he finds himself being sent home early to the family ranch to make a heartrending decision. Little does he know he isn’t the only one making decisions. His first priority is to rekindle the flame after losing communication with Gracelyn Clark. The woman who owns his heart and has since the moment their gaze connects. But now, nothing is the same as when they met.
The first round of news is surprise enough, yet Gracelyn continues to release shocking information detrimental to their future. How do they make it work after so few days together seven months ago? Adjusting to many new things in his life isn’t easy as it is, so to pull himself back to the man he’s become, could be the biggest test of all—in order to protect his own.
Challenges abound even as Dane and Gracelyn come to terms with the decisions they’ve made. Whatever tomorrow brings, their only choice is acceptance—to take one day at a time and face life as it comes.

Introducing Dane Carlson

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We’re happy to have you here today.
Name: Dane Carlson
Age: 33
Gender: Male
Birthplace: I was born in Binghampton, New York, but I came to Canyon Junction, Arizona as a teen.
Profession: A soldier for fourteen years. I’m a horse rancher on the family ranch now. We all have our own property on the Double Dutch.
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars.
Let’s see now… I’m 6’1” with my boots on. My hair is blond, kind of short but longer on top. I’m letting it grow. I’m about 190 pounds of brain and brawn. You’ll find some scars on my body, and maybe a tattoo. Ladies try to stick their finger in my dimples, so yeah, I guess I have them.
Who is the significant other in your life?
That’d be the hottie, Gracelyn Clark.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m the youngest of three boys. Basically, I’m a horse rancher, but in my mind I’m still an Army Ranger. I’m adapting. Family is important to me. I don’t like to play games, and I won’t take bull from anyone. I’m sort of a patient kind of guy. Sort of…
How do you dress?
At home I wear a t-shirt, jeans, my cowboy hat and boots, and sometimes a flannel shirt. I wear a leather jacket and motorcycle boots when I ride my bike. When I go out, I wear a button-up shirt or a Henley with “good” jeans or a nicer pair of pants depending on where I’m going. I’ll wear a suit or a tux if I have to. I wore an Army White Mess uniform to a recent family wedding. Yep, it was a great choice not to mention a big surprise. I like to pull surprises.
If we could only hear your voice (but not see you) what characteristic would identify you?
I’ve been told my voice is mellow and sexy. *grin* I hear a little scratch in it myself.
On what special skills do you rely?
My intelligence. Without it, the other skills mean nothing, and I have acquired many skills from fourteen years of military training. Fighting. Marksmanship. Planning. Leadership. Saving a life…you get it. Plus, my dad taught me what I need for ranching, whether I wanted to learn it or not. I admit, Dad was right.
What is your family like?
Close-knit. We’d die for one another if we had to. My brothers razz the hell out of me, though. My dad passed away more than ten years ago. Mom helps out with the ranch. She deserves the credit for it all.
How well do you know your neighbors?
My direct neighbors are my brothers. Canyon Junction is a small town. I know most of the townspeople better than I should. People talk, you know. I hear things I’d rather not know.
Do you care about what others assume about you?
It depends. If it involves my reputation, yeah I care, and I don’t take it lightly if someone wants to put a blemish on my reputation. Other than that, no, I could care less. I know who I am.
How do you handle challenges?
Head on, baby!
Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?
Mostly, it’s someone in Gracelyn’s life. Why? This person is a threat to her happiness, which then becomes a threat to mine, and I take it personal.
What would you like to tell your writer?
Hey, great! First off, I wouldn’t mind having another book. Hey, you with the laptop… I have more to tell. Come on, girl, y’all know I do. And, you know how much I loved being an Army Ranger? What’s up with that? I know what you’re going to say…everything turned out for the best. Oh, and…um, thanks. You know why. *Wink*

Corfu, 1987
On a long holiday with her grandparents, Sofia Aspioti meets
Danny Markson, a charming flirt who makes her laugh. Although she tries to keep
him at arm’s length, worried that village gossip will get back to her strict family,
she falls desperately in love. That’s when strange dreams about Brighton’s West
Pier and a woman dressed in black begin to haunt her. Who is this grieving woman?
And how is her lament related to Sofia’s feelings for Danny?
Brighton, 1937
Dreaming of wealth and happiness, Laura Mayfield arrives in Brighton
to pursue a new life. She falls for Christian Searle, a happy-go-lucky stagehand
at the West Pier theatre, but when she’s offered a chance to perform there, her
love for him is put to the test. Charles Willard, a wealthy aristocrat, is fascinated
by her and pursues her relentlessly. Will Laura choose love…or money?

Storm. Although The Ebb creates a strong premise for the rest of the series it has
a satisfactory ending and can be an enjoyable standalone read.
