Four ways to Spot a Witch by Kryssie Fortune @KryssieFortune #RLFblog #urbanfantasyKryssie Fortune shares four ways to spot a witch.

1. Is the witch female?

Women are easily tempted to sin. Remember Eve and that damn apple? It taunted her from the tree branch while poor, innocent Adam ignored it. Historically, women were seen as morally week. Making a pact with the devil opened up a women’s wildest fantasies. Sometime, when struggling as an uneducated peasant, those fantasies were all she had.

Forget science and facts. Although… Okay, witches and flying go together. Ever wondered why? Most bread in the middle ages was rye bread, but that goes moldy fast. That mold’s interesting. It’s called Ergot. Too much is lethal. Smaller amounts are hallucinogenic and can give the illusion of flying. Most witch suspects were healers or herbalists, and they’d include Ergot in their potions. Rub that potion on your broomstick and straddle it, pre-flight. Middle ages remember. No underwear. Their bare genitals absorbed the potion, making them writhe and contort as it sent orgasm speeding though their body. Afterwards, they would think they’d been flying

2. Does the witch have a pet?

Don’t ever be lonely enough to take in a stray cat or dog, no matter how many purrs or puppy-dog eyes they give you. Witch hunters will claim the Devil sent the pet to her. Some believe the creature can shape shift. Historically witch hunters were warned to be on guard for small snakes, birds, cats, rats, dogs, and griffins. It makes you wonder how many griffins they found.

Pets or familiars didn’t only belong to women. During the English Civil war, Prince Rupert of the Rhine commanded the Cavaliers’ cavalry. By the age of 23, he was an experienced soldier, and everywhere he went, he took his huge white poodle, Boy, with him.

Parliamentarians thought the dog was Prince Rupert’s familiar, or even the Devil in disguise. They even claimed the dog could catch bullets in its mouth. Boy held the rank of Sergeant-major-general. After the cavaliers lost the Battle of Marston Moor, parliamentarians shot Boy, some say with a silver bullet. So, devil’s familiar? Werewolf? Or just a well- loved dog? You decide.

3. Does the witch have a wart?

Women breastfeed babies. Since I can’t find a reference to a female witch catcher, I assume they were male. Men are fascinated with women’s breasts, right? So, if the poor suspect had a third teat somewhere on her body, then that was a secret place for her familiar to suckle. Clearly men are terrified of women, why else would they need a panel of expert females to help find the hidden wart. Or maybe the men didn’t mind looking at the women’s breasts but not at her more private places.

4. Is the witch annoying?

What? Who decides this one? Does she get drunk and dance naked around the village? Some might call that local color. Does she come begging at the manor door? Surely powerful men had a duty to help the poor. Perhaps, if they were powerful, they were also greedy. What better way to not give alms than to out the poor beggar woman as a witch.

Why my interest in witches? Easy, the Tempest, the heroine in my book, Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf is one. Since she’s scared to touch her powers, she’s not a very good one, but then there’s the exploding cauldron to consider. Or the time an injured vampire crash landed on her carpet. Or the way her demon death spell bounced off a cluster of spider demons. All things considered, she’s probably best leaving her magic alone.

Kryssie Fortune’s Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf

After seven centuries, Elias, a former Spartan turned vampire, finds his eternal bride.

Seth, Elias’s werewolf half-brother, scents his mate.

Vampire and werewolf loathe each other. The only thing they agree on is that Tempest is their mate–and they’re not sharing.

A prophecy will force Tempest, a twenty-first-century witch, to choose between them. As the half-brothers vie to win her heart, they teach her about spanking, the way pain heightens pleasure, and the joy of multiple orgasms.

A vampire can’t survive without his fated bride. A werewolf dies if he loses his mate. Their future rests in Tempest’s hands. Which one will she choose?

Note: While loosely linked to the Scattered Siblings series, this book may be read as a standalone story.

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae, or BDSM loving dragons.

Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life – or Kryssie – throws at them.

Kryssie’s pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that end on a cliff hanger.

Her books are all stand-alone even when part of series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit. One review called it downright sensual.

Drakon's Prey by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRWelcome NJ Walters author of Drakon’s Prey, a new Paranormal Romance.

Why did you write this book?

Drakon’s Prey is the second book in the new Blood of the Drakon series. A drakon is the son of a dragon and a human woman. I started this series with the premise of four drakons, all half brothers (same drakon sire, different mothers). They are 4000 years old and they have an enemy who will stop at nothing to capture and control them. Not only do drakons have great wealth, but their blood will cure all disease and prolong the life of the human drinking it. This is Tarrant’s story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance. No surprise there. I love all kinds of romance—paranormal, historical, contemporary, and romantic suspense. I also like nonfiction and tend to read a lot of self help/spiritual books as well.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That’s a tough one. There are so many. Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s In Death series is right up there. She’s tough and smart, but has a tender side, which she shows very reluctantly. I’ve read the entire series and am always waiting for the next book.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on another drakon book for the series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Lots happening in the coming months. My new publisher, Entangled, will be rereleasing my entire Samhain Publishing backlist (over 30 books), which was taken down with Samhain Publishing closed. I also have a new drakon book—Drakon’s Plunder—on July 3rd.

I’m thrilled to be part of an incredible anthology—Blue Collar: A Boys Behaving Badly anthology. My story is “Roadside Assistance.” It is available on June 13th, and can be pre-ordered for only 99-cents on Amazon.

The remaining three books in my Dalakis Passion vampire series will be rereleased between now and the end of the year. And there will probably be more.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.

When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.

He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

Play Is It True with today’s guest Kate Hill, author of Fangs and Fists: Grit, an erotic paranormal. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Werewolf gladiator Grit faced his own mortality in the arena, only to be resurrected by a demon. Grit now lives a shadowy existence as one of the soulless, remembering only bits and pieces of his former life. Nonetheless, he recognizes evil and knows he must fight for the future of his young son, as well as the rest of the world.

Zari, a vampire warrior, helped Grit escape the tower where he had been imprisoned. She had feelings for Grit when they’d first met, but at the time he had been mated to another wolf. Now that he’s on his own, they’re free to explore their feelings as they fight side by side as part of the rebellion against the demons. In the midst of war, their love grows, but danger is everywhere.

Haylen, the demon who resurrected Grit, offers a bargain that may save or destroy the rebellion. Whatever the outcome, Zari and Grit intend to face it together and explore the once forbidden passion between them.

Welcome Shari Elder author of Unnatural Allies, a new Paranormal Romance.

Why did you write this book?

Last year, Evernight published my novel, Shifter Trials. Although I had not planned for it to be part of a series, two of the secondary characters in the book—the wolf beta and heroine’s best friend, and a rat alpha – started bucking for their own story. Then I fell in love with the idea of a love story between a rat and a wolf. I like to push at rules, and this story definitely does that.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love science fiction, fantasy and paranormal stories, romance and non-romance. I just love to see how writers create new worlds, new rules of engagement, new species, and new cultures. It’s why I write them as well. I also love mysteries. Like romances with their HEAs, mysteries have to tie up the story by the end as well.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

I have to share two, because I always like to have to have a male and a female. The first is Samwise Gamgee from Lord of the Rings. He’s not the hero, yet the final victory (and happy ending) would not have succeeded without him. He’s the best friend, the sidekick, the shadow, on which the hero’s success ultimately rests. He’s a unique character, often overlooked, because his evolution is to become his best self, beyond what he thought he could be. And he gets the girl in the end.

The second is Ms.Jane Marple, because I adore the quiet, older character that everyone ignores. Yet it she who sees and hears everything, and ultimately is the only one who can figure it out. Reliable, loyal and kind, with depth and intelligence that comes out quietly in the acts of day to day life. Like Sam.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am working on a science fiction romance novel called the Scent of Memory, which is book 2 in my Green Rising Series. In this novel, a rebel computer genius is reunited with her fiancée, who she believed to be dead from a mining accident. Instead, he was rebuilt as a cyborg and had his memories wiped.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

In addition, to the Scent of Memory, I am also working on book 3 in Shifting Alliances, where shifters continue their battle against the fae (see blurb below). In this novel, a cougar shifter and a fae man find love. I also plan to write a holiday hannukah story.

A World in Transition

Violent fae encroachment on shifter land is heating up. With death tolls rising, the impossible becomes necessary – an alliance among predator and prey shifters.

An Inconceivable Love

Nicca Baron, lone wolf and wolf clan beta, finds herself under the command of Evan Grant, the rat alpha. In different circumstances, he’d be dinner. Or so her wolf keeps reminding her. Evan proves to be a perceptive leader, a skilled fighter and irresistible to her lonely heart.

To rule the rats, you have to rule the pack. Evan is a whiz at managing people and groups. Until he finds himself leading a mission made up of every single large animal that thrives on rat flesh. And not the kind between his legs. The only bright light is Nicca. Her storm gray eyes miss nothing, her brilliant mind comprehends everything and her succulent curves offer the perfect place for a rat to nestle.

An Impossible Future

In each other’s arms, Nicca and Evan discover love and a new perspective in an off-kilter world. But a wolf cannot mate with a rat, no matter the strength of the human attraction.

Hello, I’m Shari. By day, I crawl out of bed, mainline coffee, walk the dog, get my kid off to school, hop on the metro, and save cities within the four walls of my office. Usually by email.

At night, the other Shari emerges. I take off the suit, curl up on the couch and let my imagination play, with words and images until stories take shape (while periodically checking on my teen-ager, hiding out in the bedroom and plotting world domination with her furry minions). As my alter ego, I save cities in a cape and spangled tights, wander space and time on a surfboard, fly over the Himalayas on feathered wings, make six-toed footprints in indigo talc snow on the sixth planet in the Andromeda galaxy or eavesdrop on Olympian gods while pretending to whip up a bowl of ambrosia. In all these wondrous worlds, romance and passion blossom. I can’t resist a happy ending. And I am particularly prone to writing happy endings for those who have given up on ever getting one.

Interview with Lisa Carlisle

Why did you write this book?
I’ve always had a thing for gargoyles. I envisioned writing a story about five statues; the story begins when one begins to move. That story bloomed into a much larger world—one on a mystical Scottish island with five gargoyle shifter brothers. I wrote the first book, Knights of Stone: Mason, and was thrilled and surprised when readers asked for more. Of course, I was happy to comply and ideas began spinning for each brother. Bryce is the second oldest brother and the beta of the gargoyle clan. He’s content as his role as second—until he meets Mairi and his entire world changes.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy reading romance, mysteries, and nonfiction, but the last year I’ve read many shifter romances.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’m drawn to dark, brooding characters, like Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, or Snape in the Harry Potter books.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
For 2016, my main focus is on stories for each brother in the Knights of Stone, but I’m also working on other paranormal and military romances. I’m also in three upcoming, multi-author boxed sets.
Please tell us about your latest book.
What happens when love interferes with plans, during the most unfortunate of times?
Gargoyle shifter, and the last of her clan, Mairi, is running for her life, desperate to keep hidden. When she spots two winged creatures flying high above her in the Highlands of Scotland, she momentarily panics, thinking they’re the same beasts who murdered her family along with her entire clan. Realizing they’re gargoyles like her, she takes flight and discreetly follows them to an island.
Bryce, beta of his clan and drummer for the Knights of Stone, senses something is amiss on the Isle of Stone. At first, he believes he’s merely discomfited by the rumors of atrocities occurring in the Highlands. However, he discovers an intruder on the magically-concealed island home. Once he ascertains that the flame-haired beauty is the sole survivor of a traumatizing attack, he returns to the Highlands to warn his former clan.
Somewhere between cautioning the clan and realizing the necessity of destroying the beasts that threaten them all, Mairi and Bryce discover an attraction that quickly evolves into a consuming passion. A problem even greater than the murderous fiends becomes apparent – the love they share may not survive the battle.
For a unique shifter romance series with hot men in kilts, read about the brothers in the Knights of Stone today!

Book 1 answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Diane Saxon lives in the Shropshire countryside with her tall, dark, handsome husband, two gorgeous daughters, a Dalmatian, one-eyed kitten, ginger cat, six chickens and a lazy black Labrador puppy called Beau – a name she stole for her hero in For Heaven’s Cakes.After
working for years in a demanding job, on-call and travelling great distances,
Diane gave it all up when her husband said “follow that dream”.
been hidden all too long, her characters have burst forth demanding plot lines
of their own and she’s found the more she lets them, the more they’re inclined
to run wild.
What’s your favorite down-home
family style meal?
Although I’ve lived abroad for much of my young life and
still love to travel, there is nothing finer than a good old fashioned English
Sunday roast. A rib of beef, pink in the middle, Yorkshire pudding, roast
potatoes (crispy on the outside, fluffy in the middle), leeks in cheese sauce,
carrots and broccoli with a good, savory gravy
What is your go-to meal
when you dine out?
I love food. I’m no connoisseur, but I would far rather have
a little bit of something really delicious than a whole heap of something just
for the sake of eating.
If I’m given the choice when dining out, I will always
choose an Italian restaurant. I find it very difficult to choose, but I love a
tasty seafood risotto or a creamy tagliatelli.
Tell us about your
favorite toy as a child.
I still have my favorite toy. It’s tucked away in one of my
underwear drawers, so delicate now that I very rarely touch it. But, it’s
there, never to be thrown out. Threadbare and floppy, my little lambie has been
with me since I was probably four or five. It’s been all over the world with
me. Drowned in brandy on our return home from Germany, a straw filled toy, it
would never have survived if my Grandma hadn’t insisted on washing, washing,
washing it. I still fancy I can smell alcohol on it now. With both eyes
missing, a broken leg and the stitching gone from its mouth and nose, it’s
still one of my most precious possessions.
What are your hobbies?
Reading, writing, walking my Dalmatian and black Labrador for
miles, snorkeling and holidaying.
What kinds of things do
you read when you’re researching a new book?
It depends on what kind of book I’m writing. When I wrote my
sci-fi, Short Circuit Time, I spent a lot of research time reading Steven
Hawkins. For my upcoming book later this year, I’ve trawled the internet for
information on Black Hawk helicopters, their pilots and training.
For Banshee Seduction, it was less reading but I had great
fun talking to a football agent, discussing game play with him and his football
friend, researching game-play, watching clips of games – it was no hardship,
