About the Author

Wendy Lou Jones was born and raised in West Sussex, in the south of England. At 18, she moved to Birmingham to study Medicine at University, where she was lucky enough to meet her husband. She worked in hospitals, general practice and palliative care before starting a family, at which point she took a step back from medical life to concentrate on being a mum.
She now lives in a little village in Herefordshire with her husband and two grubby boys and discovered a love of writing not long after their youngest started school. And if you were to ask her what it was that made her make the switch, she would tell you quite simply, that it started with a dream.

Interview with Wendy Lou Jones

Why did you write this book?
This story follows on from my other Echoes of Nutt Hill novels. It is about the brother of the hero of Sun on Sundays, the previous book, and is still within the village of Lower Nutton. They are all rural village love stories. I wanted to let him experience true love.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical romance
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Jon Thornton, from North and South, by Elizabeth Gaskell
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
Currently I’m attempting to lick the final Echoes of Nutt Hill story into shape and after that I have something quite different planned.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Luke is the man with the money, the fast car and the hot woman. There’s no way he would even think about getting serious, but a face he can’t remember soon threatens his calm.
Rebecca isn’t interested in a relationship, and definitely not with him. How could she, after all he put her through? She’s spent the last 4 years hiding away from society, a one woman crusade for children’s road safety. Who would have thought one fateful day, it might almost be her … again.
As two worlds collide, will opposites attract?
Not if she can help it.

About the Book

Title Scarlet Nights 3: Feasting With the Enemy
Genre Erotic Vampire Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

After more than a century sharing a bed and fighting at each other’s backs, vampire warriors Blair and May have forged an unbreakable bond.
Now the mysterious New Reign is seeking additional members. Their philosophy–recruit or destroy. Using mind manipulation, they stir up dark memories from the past to tempt Blair and May into killing each other.
Given the chance to resurrect his murdered first wife and children, will Blair now sacrifice the woman he loves–his wife and blood child, May?Stressing The Heroine

Every heroine has a story. She has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a heroine and get to know her better, by focusing on how she handles being relaxed, as well as how she handles stress.

The Heroine’s Relaxed Side

This heroine is at a party. Considering her story, describe the party.
The party is located at the Cock and the Pussy Willow, an exclusive vampire club in London. It’s a masquerade party and takes place in the lounge section of the club. May and her husband, Blair, are dressed in 1920s attire that they have actually kept in storage from that era.
How does the heroine feel about being this particular party, and what body language is she displaying that gives it away?
May is enjoying herself immensely. Many of her and Blair’s old friends are at the party and she is spending time, relaxing on one of the couches or dancing with Blair.
Is she more likely to mingle or remain aloof?
May enjoys mingling with her friends. She likes to have fun, but she doesn’t feel the need to be the center of attention. She’ll dance and share jokes, but won’t make a spectacle of herself.
If she drinks, what is her drink of choice at this party?
Like most vampires, she has a taste for blood-laced wine.
How much drink is her usual?
She’ll have one or two. Neither May nor Blair drink to excess.
The heroine figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?
It’s to share some private moments with her husband, Blair. They’ve been hanging around the Cock and the Pussy Willow for so many decades that they know the best hiding spots.
Is she likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is she the friend that others latch onto?
She and Blair are quite close and will probably be together for most of the party. They’ll also spend time with their friends, in particular the club’s owner, Daria, and Blair’s blood father, Hamilton. Typically, May isn’t the sort to latch on to others.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the heroine going to handle it?
It depends on who’s involved. She might jump in to help or she might ignore it completely.
Is the heroine the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
Again, it depends. If she and Blair get into an argument, Daria might toss them both out.
Will she know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of herself?
May not only will know when to leave, but she and Blair will might say goodnight early, depending on their plans or if they get called away on duty.

The Heroine’s Stressed Out Side

How does the heroine handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls her aside when she was blameless in a situation?
May is a warrior in the battle against evil vampires, so usually she and Blair are the authority figures. Daria rules the vampire warriors of London, so if she called May out, May would be respectful, but she wouldn’t be shy about explaining her side of the story. It’s happened many times before.
How does the heroine react to hearing a scream?
May’s first instinct is to investigate. She’s always prepared to handle a potentially dangerous situation.
If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses her mind?
Stop the fight and find out what’s going on.
If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing she does?
She’ll most likely do what crosses her mind and step in, especially if she sees a vampire attacking a human.
This heroine attempts to rescue someone and realizes that she is in over her head. The odds are against her and there is no way out. She is going to get her butt handed to her. What does she do?
May won’t go down without a fight. She’ll do her best to hold them off while sending out a telepathic call for backup. Hopefully Blair, Daria or another warrior will be nearby to help.
The heroine runs into the one person from her past she wanted to avoid. She can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does she do?
The leader of the New Reign is someone she never wants to meet again, but if she does, she’ll stand her ground and use the psychic skills she has learned from Blair, Disdain and her other mentors to prevent him from manipulating her mind.
Someone younger than the heroine is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the heroine deal with it?
She’ll do her best to help them because not too long ago (at least by vampire standards), she was the overzealous novice in need of help. May will attempt to be discreet at first, taking the person aside, if possible, to offer advice. If they refuse, she might let them get into trouble so they’ll learn from their own mistakes, or if it’s a dangerous situation, she’ll overrule their decisions and do what she must to keep people safe.
The heroine is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does she tell herself in order to get through the situation?
This happened recently when May suffered a gunshot wound. It wasn’t serious, but painful. She continued fighting and managed to subdue her enemy. She told herself to rely on her training, not to mention she had a personal grudge against this person that made her refuse to give in.
What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?
She has had several excellent mentors, so it would depend on the exact situation. If faced with the leader of the New Reign, she’ll most likely rely on the teachings of Disdain, however.
What lesson from her past gets her through a stressful situation?
When she first met Blair, she was a victim of the way society treated lower class women during that era. Blair taught her how to defend herself and that she could do just about anything she put her mind to. It’s that lesson that has not only helped her survive many difficult situations, but has also saved Blair’s life on several occasions.

One sleepless night, the main characters of Book One in her Men of FTI  series sprang from her head fully formed. They demanded she tell their story; so she did. As they revealed themselves, so did two other intriguing characters. Those characters convinced her to give them their own books because their stories were worth telling too. And so Olivia suddenly became a romance author. When Olivia is not writing, she has the best job in the world, which, too, will remain a secret. In her free time, she reads, write, drinks wine, or is, most likely, out emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Olivia lives in one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the U.S.—Baltimore. She lives with her cat, which she is convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia plans to continue being awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her only goal.

About the Author

Although Sara Walter Ellwood has long ago left the farm for the glamour of the big town, she draws on her experiences growing up on a small hobby farm in West Central Pennsylvania to write her contemporary westerns. She’s been married to her college sweetheart for over 20 years, and they have two teenagers and one very spoiled rescue cat named Penny. She longs to visit the places she writes about and jokes she’s a cowgirl at heart stuck in Pennsylvania suburbia. Sara Walter Ellwood is a multi-published and international Amazon bestselling author of the anthology series Cowboy Up. She also dabbles in the paranormal genre with her The Hunter’s Dagger Series, which was previously published under the pen name Cera duBois.

Interview with Sara Walter Ellwood

Why did you write this book?
I actually came up with the idea for this book while writing the heroine’s parents’ romance back in 2010. When Heartstrings (Singing to the Heart book 1) was eventually published in 2013, I just had to wait a few years to write it—to allow the heroine to grow up.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Oh, wow, that’s a hard question because I read so many: contemporary romance, paranormal romance, science fiction (I’m a HUGE Star Wars geek), straight historical and romance, fantasy romance… I really can’t pick one.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
It really is a tie between Scarlett O’Hara and Princess Leia (from the Star Wars Legacy universe—the old Expanded Universe).
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m working on A Hunter’s Wings–book 3, of my paranormal series, The Hunter’s Dagger Series. I hope to have it released by January. I’m also plotting and doing research for a time travel historical YA fantasy set in early sixteenth century England/Scotland. The story will involve two fairies who go back in time to prevent another time-traveling fairy from assassinating King Henry VIIs daughter before she can marry the Stuart King, James IV, which would prevent the eventual secession of the Scottish kings to the English throne.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Storm Crazy, A Storm Lake Novel

Title Storm Crazy
Genre Paranormal
Author Livia Quinn
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
I’m Tempest Pomeroy, and my human job is delivering the mail. To say I was having a bad day would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on New Orleans. First, River’s amphora went missing—that’s genie bottle to you mere-mortals. I know— the names right? We were just lucky we didn’t end up as Black Cloud and Little Sprinkle. Or Flash and Flood. With my hair, I’d have been Flash. I’m also a Paramortal like the rest of my family. Or I’m supposed to be. If it wasn’t for a few little talents I’d think I was adopted.
On my first delivery, a scantily clad doctor triggered a hallucination when we touched. Pheromones? An old trouble-maker had a stroke but I saved the old fart with a zap of my Zeus juice! It was the first time I’d actually called my power on purpose, and our hunky new sheriff almost saw me use my magic—big no-no. He showed up again when the owner of Flowers by Dick complained that I’d dropped a seventy-five pound box on his foot. Yeah, I did, but it was an accident. He put his hand on my butt and my hands sorta… slipped. Then things really went downhill.
I discovered a dead body while rescuing River’s bottle from a locker as the sheriff arrived again. Now, my brother’s missing, my mother’s AWOL and the sheriff and my ex-lover are squaring off like yard dogs staking a claim on a poodle. I am no one’s poodle. Aurora says all this chaos is a sign of my quickening power and things are only going to get worse.
Oh, and the sheriff? He thought he’d settled in a normal small town to raise his teenage daughter. Like Mayberrry. We’ll see how that turns out. Things had better settle down soon, ‘cause I’m about to go Storm Crazy.
