Interview with Anita Philmar

Why did you write this book?
I have been fascinated with the question of whether or not Neanderthal DNA was in the human genome. I know it is a geeky thing to get hung up on, but I liked science in school. After reading the journey of the scientist Doctor Svante Paabo that made the discovery, I had to find a way to create a book about it. This led me on a journey to incorporate science with fiction. Wow, was it fun and it’s not over. This is the 1st book in the series.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy romantic suspense and love having them with an element of the paranormal which is exactly what The Warrior in Me represents.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I really like Wolverine.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
At the moment, I working on the last book in my series – The Cowboys of Naked Bluff, Texas. It is a western, historical suspense that is very hot.  I’m hoping to have it out in January, but the holiday always seem to put me behind.
Please tell us about your latest book.
 Special Security Agent Sebastian Berlin is eager to track down his partner’s killer. Instead, he’s assigned the job of baby-sitting a scientist. His boss thinks she’s the key to an Ancient Warrior Prophecy. Science never interested Sebastian, but the know-it-all female standing at the end of his Alaskan dock could persuade him to do a little experimenting. That is, if he can keep his Neanderthal Warrior genes from taking control.
DNA specialist Lily Sinclair is in need of a vacation, or so her over-protective ex-husband tells her. Arriving in chilly Alaska instead of sunny Cancun, she’s tired and cranky and so not in the mood for her bodyguard’s he-man tactics. Still, there’s something about the sexy eye-candy that makes her want to lick him all over even as she’s demanding to go home.
Then Lily’s ex is poisoned, and Sebastian is certain the two murders are connected and she could be next. She knows he’s hiding something, but with the worldwide release of Neanderthal DNA project only days away, she has no choice but to trust him to protect her. But can she trust him with her heart?

She lives on the East Coast of the US with her husband, two kids, and an oversized lapdog named Jake.

About the Book

Title A Theft of Magic
Genre Fantasy Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
A woman sworn to truth. A man who deals in lies. A passion lighting the way to love…or loss.
At the behest of the Duchess of Fay, Ronan McCarrick, thief, smuggler, and Irish revolutionary, travels to the Isle of Skye, the domain of Sorcha Fay. She is known as the Seeress of Skye, an elusive figure who rarely leaves the island. Ronan’s arrival triggers one of her defensive spells, incinerating his clothing and everything he’s carrying. Including the letter that would have told Sorcha why he has come to Skye.
Despite an instant attraction to the naked and furious Irishman, Sorcha believes that Ronan is an interloper who has been attacking her wards for months. Even when part of his story is confirmed, she still mistrusts him. But when she discovers that two powerful objects are missing from the Fay vaults–someplace he couldn’t have been–she’ll need his help to steal them back.
If he doesn’t steal her heart first.

Introducing Sorcha Fay

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We’re happy to have you here today.
Name: Sorcha Fay
Age: 26
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Fay House, Skye, Scotland
Profession: Caretaker of Fay House
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): Human
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars.
I’m very short and very curvy. I curve out far more than I curve in! My hair is light blonde, with a streak of silver/pearl color that everyone in my family gets when they’ve used magic long enough. I’m very pale, as you might expect from a blonde, with pale blue eyes. I’ve been told they look like a summer sky.
Who is the significant other in your life?
The only significant thing in my life at the moment is Fay House. But I recently met a man named Ronan, and if I can trust him…
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’ve spent nearly all of my life in the Highlands and the Isles of Scotland. I am in charge of Fay House, the ancestral home of my clan, but the rest of the family only comes here once a year, so most of the time I’m alone with my small staff and the tenants. Like most of the members of my clan, I can do magic, and I am known for having frequent visions of the future and very strong magical intuition.
On what special skills do you rely?
My magical intuition provides me with extra information about people and situations. I can usually tell when things are about to go wrong, although that doesn’t mean I can do something about it!
Are any of your skills a source of pride or embarrassment, and if so, which ones and why?
I have frequent visions of the future, and coupled with my intuition, I’ve been given the nickname the “Seeress of Skye.” But I dislike that name, because I can’t control my visions the way true Seers can. The visions come at their own whims, and are about wildly different things. Sometimes they give warnings, or show me scenes from my own future, but most often they are of distance times, places, and people.
What is your family like?
My family is big, loud, and rambunctious. It is always a bit of a shock when they descend on me at midsummer and stay for two weeks, or when I travel to a gathering for a marriage, birth, or funeral. But though I do miss them when they aren’t around, I prefer my solitude, quiet, and peace.
Are you involved in your community?
Very much! Our family owns all of the land in the vicinity, including the town, so everyone nearby is a tenant of Clan Fay, and a nominal member of the clan, though not everyone has sworn oaths to Le Fay, our chieftess. As the representative of the clan on Skye, I settle disputes, collect rents, and oversee any needed improvements or repairs. I am also the strongest mage in the vicinity, so if anyone needs a spell cast, they come to me.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
I would like to know who my father is. He was out of my mother’s life before she knew she was pregnant, and she never told me his name, or where I could find him. I don’t even know if he’s still alive.
If you could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
I would have the solicitors who manage Fay House’s finances actually open the pursestrings and allow me to invest in improvements to the house and grounds. At the moment, I am only allowed enough money to cover repairs and upkeep, but the house is in desperate need of modernization and renovation.
When (if) you lie or are upset, what gives you away?
It is very difficult for me to lie. When I try it, I am usually stiff and awkward about it, and stumble over my words. I also flush easily with my pale skin, and lying makes me feel embarrassed, so even if I manage to get the lie out, my cheeks and throat give me away.

Interview with Collette Camero

Why did you write this book?
Scandal’s Splendor is the 4th book in my Highland Heather Romancing a Scot series and it features Seonaid Ferguson.
She’s the youngest Ferguson sister and has waited patiently while twelve other books were written to finally have her story told. She made it clear, she wasn’t going to wait any longer.  
What is your favorite genre to read?
I adore historical romance, particularly Scottish, Regency, Victoria, and Medieval, though I’ll read just about any sub-genre.
I started reading Regencies when I was thirteen!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Only one?
Hmm, I’m still a bit dreamy-eyed over the Count of Monte Cristo.  
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m working on a Highlander novella for a group project and as soon as it’s finished will dive into another novella for another project.
Brette: Intentions Gone Astray, my third Conundrums of the Misses Culpeppers releases January 10, 2017, and Passion and Plunder, the fifth book in the Highland Heather Romancing a Scot series is scheduled to release in the spring of 2017.
Expect another A Waltz with a Rogue Novella soon too.
Please tell us about your latest book.
A determined Scottish lady
Seonaid Ferguson, a lady of Craiglocky Keep, is through with London’s Marriage Mart. After learning she has the second sight, the haut ton attempts to exploit her abilities. Even though it means she condemns herself to spinsterhood, Seonaid sets a desperate course to rid herself of her gift turned curse. As she rushes home from England, a snowstorm strands her in a crowded inn with the last man she ever wished to see again. A handsome French baron who once thought her a courtesan. And just her misfortune, only he stands between her and certain harm. 
An honorable French nobleman
Jacques, Monsieur le baron de Devaux-Rousset, ventures to Scotland to oversee his new investment;  a silver mine near Craiglocky. Only a handsome profit will save his family’s destitute estate in France. But when the mine is beset with one problem after another, Jacques must instead search for an heiress to wed. He certainly should not be falling in love with the lovely, spirited sister of Laird Ewan MacTavish, a lass whose dowry is insufficient to restore his ancestral home. Nor should he consider, even for a moment, her risqué, but deliciously tempting scheme to rid her of the second sight.
A danger most dire
Matters are torn from their hands when a dangerous adversary vows to expose Seonaid as a witch, just as Jacques’s  problems at the mine escalate into deadly violence. Is it by chance, or a dark design, that both of them are beset at once …? Dare Jacques and Seonaid throw caution aside and forge a future together?
