Shifting Hearts.


Dominique Eastwick welcome to Romance Lives Forever. Tell us
about Shifting Hearts: Wiccan Haus.
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Tagline: Sometimes it takes losing everything to find the one
thing you need.
The last of his kind… Rekkus is the last of the great Black
Tiger weres and he is happy to stay that way. Working as security for the Wiccan
Haus, a magical spa for inner healing, he has enough danger – and women – to keep
him busy. Unfortunately, the Fates are not content with him being comfortable.
Alone and discouraged… Dana has walked away from all she has
known, her fiancé, family, apartment, and job. Now, having a ticket to the Wiccan
Haus may be the only way she can move on. But what she finds isn’t what she expects,
nor is it what she thought she was looking for.
Meet the unusual residents of the Wiccan Haus. The staff can
get a little hairy and not all of the guests eat what’s served in the dining hall.
But the proprietors always do what they can to make the resort into a place of healing
and peace, using all of their years of practice. At the Haus, where humans and Paras
reside side-by-side, everyone in need of the Rowan siblings’ services are welcome.
Welcome to the Wiccan Haus.

Interview with Rekkus (from Shifting Hearts)

Thank you for coming to
chat with us today. Why do you think Dominique Eastwick choose you to represent
I didn’t really have a choice as she is one of the high members
of the Syndicate which rules the Para’s.
Yea Paranormals, witches, weres, vamps, fae, non humans.
And one group rules them
That’s what they think.
Tell us a little about
I am head of Security for the Wiccan Haus, as well as the protector
of the Rowan Family.
And what?
Could you tell us what
the Wiccan Haus is?
Didn’t you do your research before coming to interview me? No?
Fine–the Wiccan Haus is a resort and spa for the emotional and physical healing
of those in need. We are located off the coast of Maine. Contact Myron if you want more information
or research it yourself at
. Is that enough information for you?
I suppose it will have
to do. Where do you live?
At the Wiccan Haus. Is this really necessary I have work to do.
Your accent isn’t American
and certainly isn’t from Maine.
Where are you from originally?
You really mean to go through with this interview don’t you?
Fine, I am from Wales.
But it’s been a very long time since I lived there.
What do you wish people
would know about you?
I wish people didn’t know about me at all.
Okay then, what music
do you listen too?
I like Jazz and traditional Irish folk music.
Will we be seeing more
of you or are you stepping out of the lime light?
I can only hope to step out of the lime light but I don’t see
that happening. I do seem to show up in every book in one form or another.
Where have we seen you
If you had seen me before you would not be here now.
What is your perfect evening?
Any evening I spend with Dana. ALONE. Without drama.
Is there anything you
wish Dominique Eastwick had kept her mouth shut about?
Are you kidding me? First Hell Yes. Second I’m not a fool to
bad mouth Dominique or any member of the Syndicate now am I?
Do you feel you were portrayed
Yes actually I was. I am exactly like that. I am surprise you
didn’t get the hint not to come chat with me.
Tell us about Dana what
drew you to her? (interviewers note, he genuinely softened at this point in the
Fate would be the simple answer, that she is my soul mate just
as simple. But it’s her fragility that made me love her.
What’s your favorite sports
United. Don’t tell anyone I sneak to the computer in the office and check on the
What’s you biggest turn
Dana, in any state of dress or undress.
What are your biggest
turn offs?
Weak Para’s and Trixie’s deep
breathing class.
What’s your favorite ice
cream flavor, chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry?
I do like a bowl of cream every now and then. I would have to
go with strawberry; Sage makes some killer strawberry ice cream on the Island.
What is your biggest fear?
Having anything happen to the Rowan siblings or Dana. They are
my family and I protect them with my life. Now if it’s all the same to you I have
work to do. Next time interview Cyrus and Sarka I am sure they would LOVE to chat
with you.
(Interviewer’s side note
having approached both Cyrus and Sarka it’s this Interviewers opinion that unless
one wants to take their life into their own hands it would be well advised to stay
away from those two siblings.)

Sharon Kleve, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. Let’s talk about your book, Klutzy Love.
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Buy links:
Publisher: Books To Go Now
Cover artist: Books To Go Now
Length: 100 pages
Heat rating: Low simmer
Tagline: Clothes are Flying and People are Dying
Corny is a hot chick with a great
job that she loves. All that changed in the blink of an eye when her boss had
an accident involving an oversized rubber band. She’s still a hot chick, but
her boss is dead.
Steve Spears is a seasoned
narcotics cop who ends up wanting to strangle Corny on a regular basis. After
finding out Corny’s dream of opening a pet detective business, he decides he
doesn’t want a girlfriend who routinely puts herself in danger. That’s his job!
Corny misses Steve, but she’s
getting on with her life. She decides to get a month’s worth of dating out of
the way in a single night, by combining her three favorite things—men, food,
and alcohol.
Steve’s big gun and cop’s
intuition saves Corny’s life, but not from another trip to the emergency room.
He makes Corny promise never to get hurt again—she agreed, but has her fingers
crossed behind her back.
What are your main characters’ names, ages, and occupations?
Corny Myers, 29, Pet Detective
Steve Spears, 30, Narcotics cop


Tell us about your latest book, including its genre. Does
it cross over to other genres? If so, what are they?
Klutzy Love, book three of The
Corny Myers Series is a paranormal romance. Klutzy Love goes back to the beginning
when Corny and Steve first meet. All three books have strong humor elements, lot’s
of interaction with animals and a sexy cop.
How do you come up with ideas?
Every Saturday and Sunday morning
my husband and I take a long walk and talk about the crazy things Corny should do
with her sidekicks (animals). He’s says he’s not a romantic guy but he comes up
with creative ideas that I would’ve never thought of. The other walkers must think
we’re crazy.
What is the most important thing you do for your career?
I joined Romance Writers of America
and the local chapter, Peninsula Romance Writers of America. I go every month to
our meetings and seminars. I volunteer as the chapter Treasurer. I went to the Emerald
City Writers conference last year and met the most incredible women and a few men.
I guess my answer is I spend time with other authors and keep educating myself.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
It makes me extremely happy…I
crack myself up.
What do you enjoy most about life?
Besides writing; my husband, my
cat, and cooking. Most recently I befriended a neighbor’s male Mallard duck. We
have deep conversations and he agrees with everything I say. He nods his head up
and down and says, “Quuack, quuack” I love a man who thinks I’m right
all the time.
Would you consider self publishing?
Be Mine
Not right now. I feel a strong
loyalty to Jenni Conner at Books To Go Now. This is a tough industry to be in. Every
review is very personal and you can get crushed pretty easy. She’s always there
to listen and put a positive spin on things. If it wasn’t for Jenni, I wouldn’t
be where I am today.
How many hours a day to you spend writing?
I have a day job, but I’m able
to squeeze in at least two-four hours daily and I write four to five hours on Saturday.
Writing fulfills me like nothing else ever has.
What do you hope readers take with them after reading your
A big laugh, a big smile and a
better appreciation for animals… ha ah!
List two authors we would find you reading when taking
a break from your own writing.
Janet Evanovich & J.D. Robb.
In both series, the authors create wonderful and exciting relationships between
the heroine and the hero.
Why do you write?
Why do I write? Well, because the little voices in my head tell
me to—seriously, I’ve always talked to myself—now I put the voices on paper.
I was a late bloomer and didn’t start my love of reading until
I was in my twenties and then I couldn’t get enough of the wonderfully, smutty Harlequin
I’ve worked in the government sector for fifteen years and always
dreamed of having a job that I could work from home. This crazy idea came to me
one night, after reading a particularly sizzling romance. Why not try my hand at
writing one? So, out of the blue I told my husband I was going to write a Harlequin
novel. He said, “Okay.”
I figured I’d read enough of them, I could write one—no problem.
Eight thousand words later; I realized it was harder than I thought. I also realized,
I wasn’t writing what I was most comfortable with—animals.
I put my Harlequin attempt on the back burner and started writing
“The Boss from Hell”. My boss, who I adored, had been fired and his replacement
was a living-terror. It was really easy to come up with material to write about
and of course I threw in a bunch of romance and of course animals. Ninety thousand
words later I was still optimistic that I could write for a living, but I’d need
a lot of support, my cat couldn’t give me. The support came in the form of Romance
Writers of America and all the people involved in the local chapter.
Several of the members of my local chapter read my book and made
numerous suggestions, one of them came from an independent publisher—Books to Go
Now. She told me to put the novel aside for now and try my hand at a short story.
That’s where I incorporated the paranormal aspect to my writing and it really clicked
for me.
I submitted ‘Flamingo Blues’, as a Christmas short story to Books
to Go Now and I was offered my first contract. ‘Be Mine’, a Valentine short story,
is book two of ‘The Corny Meyers Series’ and in addition to a contract, I won the
holiday contest too. Woo hoo! Klutzy Love is book three of ‘The Corny Myers Series’,
which came out in August 2012.
I’ve been a jack-of-all-trades and master-of-none, my whole life.
I’ve worked in restaurants, weight loss centers, worked in a fish cannery and even
worked in a top salon in Seattle, but none of that was as satisfying as seeing my
own words in print.
That is why I write….
Flamingo Blues
If money were not an object, where would you most like
to live?
Italy. I would sit in a relaxing chair in my beautifully manicured
garden. Eat bruschetta made from my home grown tomatoes, basil, and olive oil, on
warm baguettes. Well, to be honest, I do that now, but Italy would be awesome.
Picture yourself as a store. Considering your personality
and lifestyle, what type of products would be sold there?
It would be an unusual book store,
only selling eBooks. You could bring in your Kindle or Nook, and sit in a comfy
chair and read through the latest eBook menu. You’d select your download and then
come to the counter and purchase a gourmet sandwich, salad, wine, or beer and then
enjoy your read.
As a child, what was your favorite thing about school?
Show and tell; I could always
find a bug or frog to bring in and talk about. My love of animals hasn’t diminished
over the years, only gotten stronger.
If you came with a warning label, what would it say?
“Warning: May be nuts.”

Please Fill in the Blanks

I love pizza with roasted garlic, andouille sausage, mushrooms, and black olives.
I’m always ready for a good steamy romance and a glass of chardonnay.
When I’m alone, I think about my husband and what I’m going to feed him for dinner.
You’d never be able to tell, but I’m not a natural red head.
If I had a halo it would be
a pitch fork
If I could be an animal, I’d be a bald eagle and rule over all the other birds.
I can never bungee jump because I’m afraid of heights.

The Saint’s Devilish Deal

Kristina Knight, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. Let’s
talk about your new book, The Saint’s Devilish Deal

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Crimson Romance
Cover artist: Crimson Romance
Length (words): 52,000 words
Heat rating: R
Tagline: Sometimes the thing you least want is the person you
most need.
Esmerelda Quinn has been looking for a place to belong since
her parents were killed in a car crash when she was young. The closest thing to
home has always been Aunt Constance’s villa in Puerto Vallarta, so after a string
of hotellier jobs, she’s coming home to run the villa.
Santiago Cruz has called the villa home for as long as he can
remember. In between surfing events, Constance has always had a room for him. Color
him surprised when Constance leaves him with a joint interest in the villa – along
with her niece Esmerelda.
Esme isn’t thrilled to share ownership of the villa with the
the youngest Cruz brother – especially as the Cruz family has been after the villa
for years. But Santiago has grown up while she’s been away and soon she finds herself
falling for the rich boy down the hall – all over again.
Buy links:
What are your main characters’ names, ages and occupations?
Santiago (Saint) and Esmerelda (Esme), ages 29 and 26. Saint
is an ex-surfer, Esme is a bed and breakfast manager.


How did you get your start in the industry?
The Saint’s Devilish Deal is my second book, so I kind of feel
like I’m still getting my start. I’ve been telling stories for as long as I can
remember, and it’s an amazing rush to know that I can share my stories with people
I’ve never even met.
What is the most important thing you do for your career now,
as compared to when you first started writing?
Scheduling. I know, not a sexy answer. Before I was published
I could write for me, as it fit into my schedule. Now I have deadlines set by other
people so it’s important that I turn everything off except the writing from time
to time.
What websites do you visit daily?
Facebook and Twitter are my writers-crack. I’m totally addicted.
I spend the bulk of my time ‘talking’ to fictional characters or dealing with toddler
drama…so checking in with real people is heaven. Plus there are usually pictures
of shirtless men to be found.
If you could choose anyone to be your mentor who would it
It would totally be Nora Roberts. She is amazeballs. I have no
idea how she writes all the books that she does, how she meets her deadlines, and
she has a full family life, her family has the Inn. I’d take massive notes, wear
out my highlighter and probably she’d toss me out of her office on my bum in about
five minutes … but those 5 minutes would be excellent.
If you could give the younger version of yourself advice what
would it be?
That I can do this writing thing. I was under the assumption
(for a lot of years) that you had to have had This Life to be a ‘real writer’ –
and since I’ve lived in smallish towns my whole life I was quite certain I didn’t
have This Life. Now I realize I did all along.
Do things your family or friends do ever end up in a book?
The funny stuff, yeah. And we have a lot of goofy things happen
to us. I do change the names to protect the innocent, though.
What are some jobs you’ve done before (or while) you were
a writer?
I’ve been a counter-girl at McDonalds, a radio DJ (still am),
a TV reporter, a freelance journalist, a babysitter, a mom (still am and it’s the
hardest job I’ve ever had), a retail girl…the list goes one, but we’ll stop there.
Which of your books would you recommend to someone who doesn’t
normally read your genre, and why?
The Saint’s Devilish Deal – I just love this book. I like that
the characters are a little outside the box, I like that there is family drama and
illness involved. I just love the book.
What kind of books do you read when taking a break from your
own writing?
I read a LOT of romance, across all sub-genres..and I love John
Grisham. He’s great for getting my mind off my own books.
What do you think is the future of epublishing?
I think publishing in general is in a state of change and I think
it’s a good change. Epublishing is a great way for readers to find new authors,
try out new genres and find a renewed love of reading without breaking the bank.
Some of the most innovative books I’ve read have been from e-pubbed writers, and
I can’t wait to get back to my Kindle and find some more.
What was the proudest moment of your life so far?
I should say graduating college or publishing my first book…but
my proudest moment is the day we finalized the adoption of our daughter. My husband
and I expected a long, drawn-out day, and it was the fastest 5 minutes of our lives.
But I’m so happy that we stuck out the adoption road. I wouldn’t change our family
for the world.
Imagine you get to go on a dream vacation, but you have only
one hour to pack and leave, and it starts as soon as you finish this interview.
What will you take with you and where will you go?
bathing suits, sunscreen, my husband & daughter and we’re
totally hitting a sunny, warm beach with some waves.
Where were you at midnight, on December 31st when the new
century started?
I was standing in a ballroom in North Platte, Nebraska with my
camera equipment getting ready for a special report for the nightly news. I was
so tired and all I wanted to do was kick off my heels and have an adult beverage,
but instead I got to scream into a microphone with no idea what the anchors back
at the station were saying to me.
Which statement is more like you:
“I am a ten-countries in ten-days tour vacation,
because I do things as fast as possible.”
“I am a vacation spa because I am laid back and relaxed.”
This is so me. I make my family crazy because it takes a LOT
to get me overly freaked out. Once I’m freaked, though, there is no coming back.

I love pizza with Canadian bacon.
I’m always ready for vacation.
When I’m alone, I read
You’d never be able to tell, but I’m usually daydreaming.
If I had a halo it would be crooked.
If I could fly I’d never come down from the clouds.
I can never leave a fortune cookie unopened because
I have to know what’s inside.

Savage Hunger.


Welcome Terry Spear, USA Today bestselling
author. We’re glad to have you on Romance Lives Forever. I’m anxious to meet your hero, Connor Anderson, and learn more about his jaguar side. Let’s jump right in.

Tagline: Out here they play by his rules…
As a jaguar he is graceful and gorgeous…
Speedy and stealthy…
Fierce, independent, and wild…
As a man he is passionate and powerful…
What are your main characters’ names, ages, and occupations?
Connor Anderson,
30, Owner of garden nursery
Maya Anderson, twin sister, co-owner of garden nursery
Kathleen McKnight, 26, former US Army officer, currently unemployed

Interview with Connor

Tell us about yourself.
What are you like?
Some would say I’m tenderhearted as in if you’re sick, I’ll bring
you through it. My sister sometimes says I’m growly when I don’t get my way. I tend
to be territorial, so if someone encroaches, I’ll do something about it. I’m alpha
all the way and don’t back down. Kathleen would say I’m possessive, which goes along
with being territorial. I’m a great cook and will even wash the pots and pans. Or
I’ll catch supper even when doing so is dangerous to one’s health. Kathleen thinks
I’m hot and sexy, so if you think you might want to take a waterfall shower alone,
forget that. I’ll wash your back and lots more.
What do you think is your
strongest point?
Protector of those who can’t protect themselves, or even when
they can!
Do you have a weakness?
(If so, what do you think it is? What does your lover think it is? What does your
enemy think it is?)
My weakness is Kathleen. She’s human, which means, paws off.
I want her, but I have to fight that which I know I can’t have.
Kathleen isn’t sure what my problem is. She knows I really like
her, care for her, lust after her. But something is holding me back, but I can’t
let her in on the secret.
My enemies think I’m only human. Only a tourist. Only a man who’s
saddled with two women I must protect at all costs.
What drives you to do
the things you do? What makes you want to be the “good guy?”
I believe in the simple life—sharing my love of nature with my
sister at their garden nursery in Texas
and visit the jungle when we want to run on the wild side. We’ve had our fair share
of dealing with drug runners in the Amazon, but when Kathleen joins the party, the
stakes get much higher. She’s an innocent, although she tried to help take down
the bad guys when she was in the Army. Now I’m there to protect her…it’s the nature
of the beast. Protect what’s mine that which is part of my territory.
What’s your favorite guilty
Cleaning up in the waterfall with a sexy human woman I want to
make my own when I should be keeping my paws off!
A biography has been written
about you. What do you think the title would be in six words or less?
Savage Hunger at Its Best
Tell us an embarrassing
story that has to do with a pet. If you have no pets, a story about a significant
other will do. ^_^
A snapping turtle bit my sister, Maya, in the lake on our property.
I got out of the lake as quickly as possible, leaving her behind and she’s never
let me live it down. She told Kathleen about it. But the thing of it was, I did
go back later and make turtle soap out of it.
If you came with a warning
label, what would it say?
Hot, dangerous, wild, and could change your life significantly.

Please Fill in the Blanks

I love pizza with Pepperoni — jaguars love meat.
I’m always ready for a romp in the jungle.
When I’m alone, I think of you, hot, sexy, and ready for me.
You’d never be able to tell, but I have a thing for women
who get lost in my neck of the jungle
If I had a halo it would be because
I protect those in my territory, no matter what the danger
If I could convince you of how wonderful being a shifter is,
letting that primal part of us roam free
I’d turn you in a heartbeat so you
could share my world with me
I can never commit to a human woman, who was not willing to
be one of my kind
because she would need to share my love of all things jaguar.

Polished Slick.
Holley, welcome to Romance Lives
Forever. Let’s talk about your book, Polished Slick.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Buy links:
Publisher: Rebel Ink Press
Cover artist: Carl J. Franklin
Length: Short novel (52,000
Heat rating: Sensual (some
explicit scenes)
Tagline: For as much as
she tries to be the boss, he’s the real alpha in the room.
Someone’s trying to sabotage the launch of Natural by Nicolette’s
new line of nail polishes and Nikki is too danged pregnant for her usual brand of
vigilantism. She tasks her ambitious junior chemist, Trinity, with the chore of
rooting out the pest. As double insurance, she also bribes her Jack-of-All-Trades
tech guy Jeremiah to lend his expertise to the investigation.
Trinity believes Jerry—a heavily tattooed former pro surfer—is
lazy and immature. Jerry thinks Trinity—a twenty-four-year-old preppy know-it-all
who fancies herself the company’s future Vice President—takes herself too seriously.
They obviously hadn’t heard about how opposites attract. Then one night while watching
security footage, Jerry stuns her with both his past and his kiss.
Trinity quickly learns that for as much as she tries to be Jerry’s
boss, he’s the real alpha in the room. And when he cleans himself up, he’s damn
near irresistible—not just to Trinity. With the nail polish’s launch in limbo and
the company’s new ad campaign making waves, it’s Trinity who feels she needs to
grow up. If she doesn’t, she’ll lose her shot at the only man she’s ever wanted
who’s smarter than her.
What are your main characters’
names, ages, and occupations?
Jeremiah (Jerry) Rouse
is 32 years old and works as a the tech guru at Natural by Nicolette: a small cosmetics
company in Eastern North Carolina.
Trinity Jordan is 24 and
is N-by-N’s junior formulations chemist.

Interview with Jerry Rouse

Tell us about yourself.
What are you like?
Um…I dunno. I don’t really like talking about myself. In the
past when people have asked me questions like this I’d hand the sheet over to my
whoever my girlfriend of the time was. They were happy to dish all the dirt. I guess
that would be cheating, right?
What do you think is your
strongest point?
My ability to remain calm under pressure. It’s taken a lot of
practice, but I developed the skill from surfing, I think. What are you going to
do when you wipe out? Throw your board at the ocean? Get mad at it? No: you grit
your teeth and toss yourself back out there.
Do you have a weakness?
(If so, what do you think it is? What does your lover think it is? What does your
enemy think it is?)
Sure! My weakness is named “Kate Rouse.” She’s my dad’s
Trinity would probably say my weakness is not finishing my degree.
My enemy? I suppose if I had one it’d be Kate. She’d say my weakness
is being alive. She really is an awful human being. She should probably consider
What drives you to do
the things you do? What makes you want to be the “good guy?”
The want of recreation drives my professional endeavors. I work
hard so I can play hard. Happiness makes me want to be the good guy. I want that
life with a perfect house and lazy Sundays curled up on the sofa with another warm
What’s your favorite guilty
Teasing Trinity. It’s fun.
If you didn’t know how
old you were how old would you be?
A biography has been written
about you. What do you think the title would be in six words or less?
Work Now, Surf Later
What song would best describe
your life?
“Walk Over Me” by The All-American Rejects
If you were a tool, what
would people use you to do?
Probably tack up all those messy computer cords.
Picture yourself as a
store. Considering your personality and lifestyle, what type of products would be
sold there?
Motherboards, giant computer monitors, wireless peripherals,
game controllers…
As a child, what was your
favorite thing about school?
Napping in physics.
Tell us an embarrassing
story that has to do with a pet. If you have no pets, a story about a significant
other will do. ^_^
I had a ferret for a while when I was a kid. One day Kate had
annoyed me in some way I can’t specifically recall, so as a little prepubescent
payback I left little Slick in her underwear drawer.
I didn’t have Slick much longer. I miss the little guy. Hope
he’s okay.
