This quick interview includes info about the author, and
introduces the story.

About the Author

Ciara wrote her
first “under the bed” book at twenty. Another fifteen years passed before she
bravely attempted another, but she’s been happily writing ever since. A true
Renaissance woman, when she’s not penning lively stories, she’s reading,
sewing, painting, camping, sailing or dancing. A recent empty nester, she and
her soul mate currently live on a modest plot of land surrounded by trees, a
pond, an array of wildlife and seven barn kitties.

Interview with Ciara Gold

Why did you write
this book?
The Rose Hunter is actually a sequel to The Keeper of Moon
Haven. I’ve always had an active imagination. As an art teacher, I felt stifled
with no studio in which to create my own art so I decided to try writing. I
love it. I love creating fantastical worlds with interesting characters and
thus The Keeper of Moon Haven was born and in grand order, The Rose Hunter.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I love historical western romances. They are my “comfort”
read. I figure it’s because I can relate to a lot of scenes. I camped a lot
when I was young and always thought I’d marry a rancher but alas, I married my
own true love instead.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
I have many favorites, but Benjamin Colter from Joan
Johnston’s Colter’s Wife has always held a special place in my heart. I can’t
pinpoint why except maybe he reminds me a lot of my own husband; he’s honest,
caring, rough around the edges and knows his mind.
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
 I tend to work on
more than one project at a time. Currently, I’ve started another sequel to The
Rose Hunter, but I’m also working on two historical western romances. I will
probably have one of the westerns done before the sequel to The Rose Hunter.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
Lucian Willshire is
plagued by thoughts of a fey world and the disappearance of his aunt some
nineteen years past, but when his friend drags him back to Hamingjur Castle, he
stumbles into Alfheim Haven once more where mystical beings become more than a
distant memory.
Lyerra Ahdia is baffled
by the sudden emotional changes she’s experiencing until she discovers she’s
the only witch to suffer “the change” since her mother stole the Rose, a
special talisman with the power to perpetuate life among those in her coven.
Tasked with finding and bringing the Rose home, she begs Lucian’s help in
navigating the human realm. Against his better judgement, he agrees.
            Though
neither set out to find anything except the Rose, fate has other plans. Will
love be more elusive than hunting the Rose?

About the Author

Sarah Madison is a veterinarian with a big dog, an even bigger horse,
too many cats, and a very patient boyfriend. She is a terrible cook, and
concedes that her life would be easier if Purina made People Chow. She writes
because it is cheaper than therapy.
Sarah Madison was a finalist in the 2013 Rainbow Awards and is the
winner of Best M/M Romance in the 2013 PRG Reviewer’s Choice Awards. The Sixth
Sense series was awarded 2nd place for Best M/M Mystery Series in the 2014
PRG’s Reviewer’s Choice Awards.

Interview with Sarah Madison

Why did you write
this book?
So often we get stories in which gaining a special power
makes life amazing for the hero. I wanted to explore the idea that such powers
could wreak havoc in someone’s life, and that they would do anything to rid
themselves of it, choosing normal over ‘special’ any day. That led to
Unspeakable Words, the first book in the Sixth Sense series. I knew then I had
a story too big for one book alone. Truth and Consequences is the third
installment in the series, and there are at least 1-2 more stories planned. In
the first story, by-the-book Special Agent Jerry Lee Parker gets assigned to work
with maverick, lone-wolf John Flynn, but it’s a chance contact with a
mysterious artifact that changes everything between the two men.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I love mysteries and sci-fi—they are going to be my first
pick every time. Even better if there is a romantic subplot—that’s icing on the
cake!
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Hands down, Lord Peter Wimsey from the Dorothy Sayers
novels. Lord Peter spoiled me for other men when I was growing up. I feel very
fortunate in that respect. There are worse male characters to imprint on. His
relationship with mystery writer Harriet Vane is one of the healthiest, sanest,
adult relationships I’ve ever seen depicted.
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
At the moment, I’m currently working on a story set in the
1950s—my characters are part of a secret division of the CIA aimed at
collecting and investigating mysterious and powerful artifacts that have started
turning up since the advent of nuclear testing on Earth. I like to think of it
as “Ward and June Cleaver meets the X-Files.”
Please tell us about
your latest book.
When FBI agent Jerry Lee Parker wakes from a coma after a murderous
attack on his life, he has no memory of his immediate past. In the blink of an
eye, he has gone from having a nearly photographic memory to recalling nothing
of the last six months of his life, including his partner and lover, John
Flynn. While Lee tries to reboot his past and reconnect with John, there are
events at play around him he doesn’t understand. John is keeping secrets from
him, secrets which could get them both killed.
Matters come to a head when Lee is hounded to turn over a mysterious
artifact, of which he has no knowledge. The two men wind up in a fight for
their lives as they risk everything to keep the powerful relic out of the hands
of a ruthless killer. In order to protect those he loves, however, John may be
forced to make a deal with the devil.

Interview with Colleen S. Myers

Why did you write
this book?
It’s kind of funny. 
One day I was reading one of my favorite author’s books.  I love her work. It is my favorite and I
detested how she ended her series.  I
screamed, cried, moaned and bitched. So much so that my husband shushed me and
told me to write my own damn book if it bothered me. So I did.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
Fantasy. Always fantasy. I get enough Real life at work.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?

Nineteen-year-old
Elizabeth ‘Beta’ Camden is a survivor.
When
the E’mani—those pale alien freaks—destroy Earth with a plague of madness and
scoop up the remains, Beta is one of the ‘lucky’ ones. For years, she endures
their tortures, experiments and games. Then one day, she manages to escape
their ship with her life, and no memory of her time with them.
Stranded
on their world, Beta wanders the mountains, looking for a way home. She
stumbles onto the Fost—the E’mani’s ancient enemy.  Their war with the
E’mani is old and rooted in magic that the Fost once had and the E’mani crave.
Magic Beta soon discovers she’s developing along with strange tattoos and
disturbing glimpses of her past. The Fost take her in and train her in their
ways. As she spends more time with them, she falls in love with their culture
and with Marin—he of the hot hands and slit eyes.
But the
E’mani took her for a reason and they want her back—dead or alive. If Beta
doesn’t remember that reason soon, they’re all going to die.

smart girl thinks with her head, but sometimes she needs to go with her heart
instead.
Detective
Zachary Jones has more secrets than a CIA spy. He pretends to be someone he’s
not to avoid a past he can never escape. Zach moves from one woman to the next,
running from himself as much as the relationships he avoids. The closest
experience to family he’s had is the Murphys, his partner and best friend’s
family. 
Doctor
Megan Murphy is a sleep deprived emergency room resident with a closet
addiction to romance novels and a decade long crush on Zach Jones. She knows
her brother’s best friend and partner can only see the sixteen-year-old girl he
met for the first time all those years ago, and Megan has given up on Zach
seeing her as anything but a kid. The all-consuming medical career she’s chosen
does not fit with her dream of a husband and children, and she’s resigned
herself to the role of doting aunt. Sometimes a girl can’t have it all.
A
threat at Megan’s hospital draws them together and he faces what he’s known for
a while but refused to acknowledge–Doctor Murphy has grown up. Their chemistry
is explosive but his secrets threaten any chance of a relationship. Can he
learn to trust? Megan has the skills to mend her patients but can she heal
Zach’s heart?

About the Author

I write sexy paranormal small town romance (whew,
that’s a mouthful!) set in Banshee Creek, Virginia, The Most Haunted Town in
the USA. My books feature feisty, irrepressible heroines and strong,
controlling alpha males along with a host of paranormal critters (ghosts,
cryptids, pagan gods…the sky’s the limit).
I love quirky towns with spooky stories, and,
thanks to my books, I get to “live” in one year-around. In real life
I live in a Minneapolis suburb (which is sadly lacking in ghosts) with my
family.

Interview with Ani Gonzalez

Why
did you write this book?
I saw a haunted house listing in HGTV’s House
Hunters (I love that show!). The poor owners were having a really hard time
selling it. That gave me the idea for my protagonist, Elizabeth Hunt, a real
estate agent living in Banshee Creek, The Most Haunted Town in America. Poor
Elizabeth doesn’t just have one haunted house to sell. She has dozens.
The town is, as you might expect, extremely
eccentric with a haunted pizzeria, a crazy group of paranormal investigators,
and plenty of quirky characters. Those elements made writing this book a lot of
fun. I hope people enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
What
is your favorite genre to read?
My favorite genres are Paranormal Romance, Small
Town Romance and Romantic Comedy. I have elements of all three in my books.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not
including your own)? Nyx, the Valkyrie from Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark
series. She is hilarious. I also love Betsy Taylor from MaryJanice Davidson’s
Undead series.
What
are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m writing book 4 in the Banshee Creek series,
My Ghostly Valentine, it will come out in February. Valentine’s Day comes to
Banshee Creek, will the haunted town residents be able to deal with pink hearts
and pretty flowers? You’ll find out in 2016.
Please
tell us about your latest book.
B-movie actress turned real estate agent Elizabeth Hunt
should have it made. The real estate market is thriving and she had a fabulous
house to sell. Too bad the house is in Banshee Creek, a tiny Virginia hamlet
that has been recently crowned as the “Most Haunted Town in America.”
But, with the help of the Banshee Creek Historical Preservation Committee,
Elizabeth hopes to put the ghost stories to rest. Her hometown will again be
known for its vintage homes, its heirloom apple orchards, and its historical,
not phantasmagorical, attributes, and she won’t let anyone, even her long-time
crush, Gabe Franco, stand in her way.

Gabe has a big problem. His new marketing campaign for
Banshee Creek Cidery is based on one thing, ghosts, but the Historical
Preservation Committee nutcases are trying to erase the town’s spookier
traditions. He has to stop them before they render his investment worthless. Unfortunately,
the leader of the anti-ghost crusade is all-too-tempting Elizabeth, his best friend’s
sister and the one woman who is strictly off limits. But when Elizabeth rallies
the townsfolk against him, Gabe wonders if he’ll lose his business…or his
heart.

Kristina Knight author of First Love Again answers five easy
questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Once upon a time, Kristina Knight spent her days running
from car crash to fire to meetings with local police–no, she wasn’t a
troublemaker, she was a journalist. Her career took her all over the United
States, writing about everything from a serial killer’s capture to the National
Finals Rodeo. Along the way, she found her very own Knight in Shining Cowboy
Boots and an abiding love for romance novels. And just like the characters from
her favorite books, she’s living her own happily ever after.
Kristina writes sassy contemporary romance novels; her books
have appeared on Kindle Best Seller Lists. She loves hearing from readers, so
drop her a line!
What’s your favorite down-home
family style meal?
Gosh, so many to choose from! I’m going to go with chili,
because we’re heavy into fall right now. When the weather turns crisp, my
family loves soups. This weekend I’ve got chili perking in the crock pot and in
another hour or so I’ll make some grilled cheese sandwiches to go with it. Yum!
What’s your favorite hashtag
to watch on Twitter?
I follow the #amwriting and #amreading hashtags a LOT! Those
two remind me that I’m not alone in my love of books. I can’t tell you how many
new authors I’ve found by following #amreading, and when I’m deep in deadline
hell and feeling like I’m all alone, the #amwriting hash helps to remind me
that I’m not.
Describe the perfect vacation.
Warm, tropical breezes, a sandy beach…and RadioMan sitting
beside me watching the sun go down.
When you read for pleasure,
what kind of books do you choose?
I read across the gamut, it kind of depends on my mood. If I
want to escape I’ll turn to Kristan Higgans or Nora Roberts…and more times
than not I’m in that escape mode!
If the hero of your latest
book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
Oooh, good one! I think I’d attach Ride by Chase Rice to
Emmett from First Love Again…it just fits him.
