Passionate Pursuit by Tina Donahue

Genre Erotic Historical

Book heat level (based on movie ratings) R

Is their passion and love strong enough to break her chains?

Andalucia Spain, 1489 Innocent Beatriz is desperate to escape the threat of a miserable marriage to a cruel Marquis. Forced into the betrothal by her ruthless merchant papa, her only hope is to conceal her identity and become a servant in a nearby castle–a life drastically different from her comfortable upbringing.

Tomas doesn’t know what to make of his well-spoken new servant girl. Her beauty and charm captivates the military hero; her mysterious nature intrigues him. And the desire she ignites burns brighter with each glance, as does his longing to claim her for his own.

Beatriz can’t resist Tomas’ passion nor deny the heat of her own. But neither the lush countryside nor the walls of the opulent Moorish castle can entirely protect her–and if he were to discover her secret, she could be torn away from him forever. Yet how can she sustain his love if she’s living a lie?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

I write in several, including contemporary, historical, romcom, PNR, sci-fi, thriller, suspense, urban fantasy, erotic, erotica, reverse harem, menage

How do you come up with ideas?…

They pop into my head. I could be driving, grocery shopping, spending time with friends and something I see or hear gets me to thinking…’what if’ – and the plot starts to form.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Revisions. It’s the only way for me to make certain I get deep POV and a great pace.

When did you write your first book?…

When I was nine. I called it “Dimples the Adventurous Flea”. It was about a flea that jumped from a French poodle to an English bulldog, to an Irish setter, etc., etc. in order to see the world. Made copies and sold them to my friends’ parents in the neighborhood. My first book tour.

I’m an Amazon and international bestselling novelist who writes passionate romance for every taste – ‘heat with heart’ – for traditional publishers and indie. Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Romantic Times and numerous online sites have praised my work. I’ve won Readers’ Choice Awards, was named a finalist in the EPIC competition, received a Book of the Year award, The Golden Nib Award, awards of merit in the RWA Holt Medallion competitions, and second place in the NEC RWA contests. I’m featured in the Novel and Short Story Writer’s Market. Before penning romances, I worked at a major Hollywood production company in Story Direction.
On a less serious note I’m an admitted and unrepentant chocoholic, brake for Mexican restaurants, and have been known to moan like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally while wolfing down tostadas. I’ve flown a single-engine airplane (freaking scary), rewired an old house using an ‘electricity for dummies’ book, and am horribly shy despite the hot romances I write.

Read the new Well Endowed by Tina Donahue @tinadonahue #RLFblog #PNR #RomanticComedyWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Well Endowed by Tina Donahue

Genre Erotic PNR RomCom
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Where there’s a will, there’s wicked fun…
Drowning in bad luck, Cari doesn’t know where to turn when the unexpected happens. A loyal customer at her Key West café has left her an inheritance. She hopes for cash to save her restaurant, but receives an old brass bottle that looks like a sex toy…and has Jez inside.
At six-four, he’s built like a gladiator, has looks to die for, and oozes sexuality. He’s also a jinn.
Color her enthralled and excited. Besides being one hot dude, he grants wishes, right?
Not for her. Ironclad tradition demands he serve men, not women. Of course, if she wants to get down and dirty with him, he’ll gladly oblige.
Let the battle of the sexes begin. Before long, their differences fall away as they indulge in every lusty desire, while falling hard and fast. Ah, paradise. Until trouble arrives, threatening to pull them apart forever…

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre?
Yes
If so, what are they?…
Erotic, erotica, contemporary, historical, paranormal, scifi, suspense, romantic comedy (romcom), urban fantasy
How do you come up with ideas
?…
Honestly, they just pop into my head. I see scenes, like in a movie, and then my ideas start flowing around a plot. Sometimes, I think ‘what if…’ Such as, what if paranormal creatures needed a makeover service as much as humans so the paras could snag a date?
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Thinking. Imagining. Envisioning. If I don’t see it in my head first, it doesn’t come out well on the page.
When did you write your first book
?…
I was nine. I called it ‘Dimples the Adventurous Flea’ about a flea that hopped from dog to dog (French poodle to English bulldog to Irish settler) in order to ‘see the world’.

FUN

Leather or lace? LOL – both. I can’t choose.
Black or red? OMG – again, both.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth cotton. I’ve had the satin and kept sliding on it.
Ocean or mountains? Mountains
City life or country life? Country
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home
Dogs or cats? I love both, but cats – wow – adore those babies.

Read Sensual Stranger by Tina Donahue @tinadonahue #RLFblog #contemporaryTina, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Sensual Stranger by Tina Donahue

Genre: Erotic Contemporary
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Into his life she came—wanting…willing…wanton.
It’s no ordinary morning when Toni Starr arrives at Zach’s garage. Flat broke, with a past she won’t share, Toni’s instantly taken by such a potently virile man. Direct and unashamed, she tells him she’s a motorcycle performance artist who needs work and knows motors.
Zach knows women, and Toni’s unlike any he’s met. Lushly sensuous, exceedingly assured, she’d easily be his match in business and bed. A provocative challenge that stirs him as nothing has since losing his wife. A chance he’s reluctant to take, offering no more than a month’s employment, then she’ll have to be on her way.
The hours tick by. Each word and glance intensifies their denied yet escalating desire, forcing them to surrender to passion. Driven by carnal hunger, conquered by yearning, they face the unforeseen truth of Toni’s past and a future neither of them expected.
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
Without question, roasted turkey and gravy, steamed red potatoes, corn, and a huge salad with ranch dressing.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Mexican, Mexican, Mexican. I could eat it 365 days a year.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Not a toy, but crafts. I loved anything that had to be put together, created, or built. I worked for hours or days trying to get everything just so. I was never satisfied until I made the craft look different—and better—than the picture on the box.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Those with gripping themes, such as The Handmaid’s Tale, the Millennium Trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, and The Girl Who Played with Fire), The Lovely Bones. When I read, I want to feel. To be happy, cry, get angry…
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
Anything I can find on the net regarding the theme, locale, or the characters’ occupations. For example, in Sensual Stranger, Toni is a motorcycle performance artist. An unusual occupation for a woman. I scoured news stories to learn about women in the field and the dangers they faced from performing. Fascinating stuff.

Mastering the Beast by Tina Donahue

Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance – Menage and More
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Magic has never been as sexy or as fun. In New Orleans’ French Quarter From Crud to Stud is the makeover service for supernatural beings who want to tame their beasts so they can date mortal babes. Owned by a half-witch and staffed by a good fairy, a reformed female demon, and a voodoo priestess—among others—the place is always hopping. But it’s not all work as they search for their one true love. Their journeys aren’t easy, but they’re definitely magical.
Mastering the Beast Blurb:
Surrendering is the only option she desires…
No one believes that under the tough attitude and schoolgirl fashion sense, reformed demon Zoe burns for a man, love and sex. She keeps those urges on ice and well hidden. She sold her soul for a guy once, and all it got her was a one-way ticket to Hell.
Her job, keeping supernatural creatures in line at From Crud to Stud, is all work and no play. Until she’s saddled with a trio of new enforcers who ooze so much sexual heat she’s afraid to be on the same planet with them.
Stefin, Anatol, and Taro try to contain their laughter as their adorable new boss attempts to lay down the law. Apparently, no one told her they don’t take orders. They give them. And they’re determined to smooth her rough edges and tame her beast with acts so wanton they’ll make her scream—for more.
Talk about all hell breaking loose. Surrender won’t come easily, but her journey to submission is one done deal.
Warning:
Contains an unholy trio of demons who don’t like to take turns. In other words, a sensual ride on the pleasure express. Features m/f/m/m sex in every flavor except vanilla. Bring. It. On.
