A Raw Talent book
Virginia Miller is an up-and-coming tennis star. She’s gone from
a ratty tennis court in a park in south London, England, to the world’s top training facility–Los Carlos Tennis Academy
in California.
In awe of the talent around her, Virginia
is all the more determined to make the most of the opportunity and show that she’s
worthy of her place there. Her mentor, Nadia Gorlando, has every faith in her.
But Virginia finds herself distracted–Nadia,
as well as being a top-notch tennis player, is seriously sexy, and Virginia’s mind keeps wandering
where it shouldn’t. Will her crush get in the way of her career, or can she find
a way to push the other woman out of her mind before it’s too late?

Interview with Virginia Miller

Tell us about yourself,
please.
Hi, I’m Virginia Miller and I’m from London, England.
I’m currently living in California,
though–I can hardly believe it! I was accepted to train at Los Carlos Tennis Academy,
and I’m now mingling with many of my idols. I have to keep pinching myself to make
sure I’m not dreaming.
What’s your internal limitation?
Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need
to do during this story?
I really, really want to tell Nadia Gorlando how I feel about
her. She’s a top tennis player, not just in the Academy, but in the world, and she’s
also my mentor. There are so many reasons I can’t tell her, though. She’s my mentor,
we work closely together, I’m afraid. Plus, I don’t even know if she’s into women!
What inner doubt causes
you the most difficulty?
Doubting my own abilities. I must be doing something right because
I managed to get into the Academy, but I often find it difficult to believe that
I could ever be a top tennis player. Nadia has a great deal of faith in me, however,
so I’m slowly starting to believe in myself more.
What’s your external complication?
In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most.
Failure is pretty damn terrifying. I’ve worked damn hard to get
even as far as the Academy, and now I’m here I want to go all the way. I know there’s
a lot of time and effort in front of me, and I don’t mind. I just don’t want to
let myself, my parents, Nadia and the Academy down.
What is your family like?
They’re great. My parents have always been very supportive, ever
since the first moment I had a tennis racket in my hand and got hooked on the sport.
They’ve been behind me every step of the way, and I owe them a lot–without them,
I wouldn’t be at the Academy at all. They wanted me to have a backup plan, though,
and insisted I didn’t rely wholly on tennis to get me through life and into a career–and
threatened to stop paying for my tennis tuition if I didn’t try hard in my school
education and exams. I’m so glad they did, as education is so important.
What special skills do
you rely on?
I don’t. As I said above my parents refused to let me rely wholeheartedly
on tennis to get me through life and a career, and as I grew up I realized they
were absolutely right. Yes, my tennis playing has gotten me from a ratty court in
south London to
the world’s top training facility, but that isn’t just down to my tennis skills.
It’s down to hard work, sheer determination and the people I have supporting me.
I’m so grateful for them.
Are you happy with the
way your story ended? Why or why not?
Oh yes, absolutely. There were lots of ups and downs along the
way, but the ending was certainly satisfactory. I’d really like to find out what
happens next, though!

About the Writer

You have the length of
a tweet (140 characters) to describe yourself as a writer. Let’s see what you can
do.
Lucy Felthouse is driven, supportive, writes lots of different
stories, takes too much on and adores her readers and fellow Brit Babes.
Why did you choose to
write about this character?
I’m not sure, really. She didn’t appear in the first Raw Talent
book, Grand Slam, but Nadia Gorlando did. I was specifically wanting to write a
F/F erotic romance novella for Ellora’s Cave’s Hot Pink series, so I figured it
would be fun to take the character of Nadia, who’d had a few appearances in Grand
Slam, and give her a love story of her own.
When you wrote about this
character, what made you the most happy? What made you the most sad?
Giving Virginia
what she really wanted made me very happy. But some of the stuff I put her through
in the interim was pretty sad. Sorry, Virginia…
Why do you write?
Because I can’t not write! I get really grumpy if I don’t.
What do you want to write
next?
My next project is a M/M military erotic romance novella, called
Desert Heat, which is going to be set in Afghanistan.
What other character from
this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
Peter Ross is actually due his own story. Lily and I have been
working on it, but I’m not sure when it’ll get finished–things are crazy busy in
both our worlds!
Are any sequels planned
for this book?
Sort of. The Raw Talent
series is a sports romance series by myself and Lily Harlem. We have both co-authored
and solo projects in the series, and so far the books have had crossover between
the other books–that is, you can read them as standalones, but certain characters
and events will appear in more than one title. So there’s definitely a chance that
Virginia and Nadia will get another outing in future releases, but they probably
won’t be the main characters.
Is there anything you’d
like to say to your readers?
Yes–huge thanks to all of those that buy and read my books.
I couldn’t do this without you–you’re totally awesome!

Moonlight Masquerade 
5 Easy Questions is an interview is designed to be quick,
easy, and fun. Today’s guest is Raine Delight.
What is your go-to meal
to order when you dine out? Your favorite “I know it will hit the spot”
item.
If I am at Olive Garden, I always get Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo
as it is one of my favorites there and I just love their Alfredo sauce.
Who is your “book
boyfriend”? You know, that hottie you read about and drool over.
Oh lord I have to pick just one??? Do you know how hard that
is for me. *laughs* Well my all time favorite is Roarke from J.D. Robb’s In Death
Series. This character hits all my love buttons and then some.
What were you like when
you were in school?
Oh lord have mercy, I was that nerd who liked school and got
school credit for volunteering in the school library all four years of High School.
Would you rather stay
inside and watch snow falling, or get out in it and build a snowman?
For myself, I am not much of a cold weather person so I like
to stay indoors and watch the snow fall while I read a book. My kids sometimes drag
me out to help them in the winter to build snowmen or go sledding.
What was the last movie
you watched (home or theater)?
Last movies were X-Men: Days of Future Past as well as The Amazing
Spiderman at the local drive-in. X-men was really, really awesome and the new spiderman
was okay though I am not a big spiderman fan.

Her Wild Protector 
There you are, on a tropical island, with a guy who practically
kidnapped you. He says he has a plan to protect you, and so far he’s done a good
job of keeping you safe from two men, one who turns into a cheetah and another who
becomes a panther. Oh, and both of them tried to kill you. This guy is sexy as hell
and the more you learn about him, the more you like him, but that doesn’t change
the fact that he’s irritatingly bossy. Throw in the minor problem that there are
killers after you and you have a pretty good reason to be off-the-charts stressed
out.
How about a session of Tai Chi? This non-aggressive form of martial
art has many benefits, including improved posture, better flexibility and what you
so desperately need, stress reduction. So when the hot guy (who looks even hotter
when he’s doing Tai Chi) suggests you join him in his workout, you agree. And surprise!
After forty minutes of moving through the forms, you’re calmer than you have been
for days.
Tai Chi is a great form of exercise. I’ve done it a few times
and wanted to learn a bit more for the scene in Her Wild Protector, where Marshall
and Tara engage in this activity. I thoroughly enjoyed doing the research. Here
are a few websites to check out if you want to see it in action:
A nice video on YouTube, showing a gold medal champion do The
24 Form:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejB-jBtZqqU
A very nicely put together video of a regular guy doing a Tai
Chi warm up. At least I’m assuming he’s a regular guy. He could actually be a marital
art master!
Watch Jet Li rock his Tai Chi in this movie clip
How about you? What’s your favorite way to reduce stress?

About the Book

Book Title: Her Wild Protector
Since waking up on the floor of her apartment after an electrical
shock, Tara has felt…different. Colors a little
off. Shadows where they shouldn’t be. But hot guys glowing blue light and a cheetah
drinking a cup of coffee? That’s not something you see every day. And why doesn’t
anyone else seem to notice?
The pillar of blue light is Marshall, a Metamorph—a human who
can change at will into an animal or energy form. His human form is damn fine-looking,
but that doesn’t mean he isn’t crazy, with his stories about belonging to a secret
government agency and rogue Metamorphs trying to kill her. Plus he wears sunglasses
indoors—who still does that? But when there’s a panther scratching at her door,
she has no choice but to trust Marshall,
even if it means her life will never be the same.
