Your inner wolf chooses for you. What happens when the human part of your mate isn’t ready? Or if the chosen mate doesn’t agree–or worse, doesn’t believe in werewolves?

Fiona, 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.

Worth the Wait by Fiona McGier

Genre Paranormal Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): A steamy R-rated.

This sequel continues the two romances from the first book in the series, When a Wolf Howls, but adds two new ones also, making for a long saga of passion. Saoirse and Diego are married and she has good news for him. Her bestie, Freddie, is thrilled when John moves in with him, but they soon discover issues that need to be resolved. Grant is one of the hunters from Canada, whose wolf has told him that the black she-wolf they saw the last time they were at the academy, is their mate–but he has no idea what she looks like as a human–and he discovers she carries baggage that impedes their romance. Nathan yearns for a love that will last, but when his wolf mates with a female shifter’s wolf, she has no memory of it the next morning. All of these problems will be resolved, but it takes a long time–hence, the title, Worth the Wait.

What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?

My favorite down-home family-style meal is Golabki, or Polish-style cabbage rolls served with mashed potatoes. Dad was from Glasgow, but Mom’s parents were from Poland–and she’s the one who did the cooking. She had no recipe, so I had to watch her make Golabki a few times, writing down what she did. It’s my Busia’s (gramma’s) recipe, and I used to make a huge batch and serve it to my college friends. When my husband wanted me to meet his Polish parents, he told them I made better Golabki than his mother. No pressure, right? But when we had them to dinner, even his Polish mom agreed that mine were better! Wow!

What is your go-to meal when you dine out?

I should have a bumper sticker that says “I brake for Mexican restaurants.” That’s always my first choice. I love posole (a very hot pork soup, which is a lot of work to make at home), and I love chilli rellenos (even more work to make at home)–but there’s one place near me that has chilli relleno tacos to die for! For entrees I like flautas– either pork or beef rolled tightly into a corn tortilla, then deep-fried–as well as tamales. I also love red sangria. And chips and salsa, along with cheese sauce. And cheese quesedillas. Now I’m hungry!

Describe the perfect vacation.

My idea of a perfect vacation is my husband and I set out with our tiny Scamp camper attached to my truck, and I get to drive where-ever we’re going. I’m a crabby-ass passenger, so husband has learned over the years to bring a book to read, or to take naps while I drive. We love to explore lake areas so we can go swimming, and so he can go fishing, and I can sit somewhere and either write, read, or do crosswords. We both love to hike, especially if there’s a waterfall or something else scenic to see along the trail. And we love to relax around the campfire where we cook our meals, and gaze at the stars after dinner.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

My favorite toy was my huge collection of Barbie dolls and their accoutrements. I had multiple houses, the theater, the car, a pool–in fact, everything to establish an apartment complex on a card table in my bedroom. I only had two male dolls–Ken and Alan, but they had good times with all of my Barbies! Since I loved secret agents TV shows and movies so much, my Barbies were always spies with exotic jobs and exciting adventures all over the world. I never wanted them to get married–they were too busy enjoying their independence–hmm, kind of like the heroines in my books! LOL.

What are your hobbies?

I’ve been a sewer since Mom showed me how to make Barbie clothes by hand, when I was too young to use the sewing machine. Now I have her old Singer machine–I’ve got a picture of myself as a two-year-old standing next to it. I’ve made everything on it from bathing suits, to Halloween costumes for all four of my kids. I also like to crochet when watching TV with my husband–or sitting around talking with family. I’ve made over 30 afghans over the years for relatives and friends. I also like to bake–muffins, cookies–but I’m known for my homemade pie crusts and my pies. In fact, many of my pie recipes are on my website under the tab “pies” because one of my heroines bakes pies all through the book.

I have always had characters intruding into my thoughts, showing scenes from their lives. When I ignore them, they start to yell louder. If I write their stories so they can live in readers’ heads as well, they usually leave me alone. Soon the next voices appear. I like the noise. I write romances that involve strong, independent women who enjoy casual flings, but are not looking to fall in love. Enter the man who feels the same way–until they both realize this is different. I love the passion of new love!
I keep busy with multiple jobs, and have to squeeze in writing when I should be sleeping. As often as possible, I go out with my family, or just my husband, to view the night stars around a campfire. Stories present themselves to me while driving, while dreaming, and especially while camping.
I write romances that involve strong, independent women who don’t mind casual flings, but who are not looking to fall in love. Enter the man who decides this is the woman for him. I thinks that how they ultimately both realize that they have found the one, is the most interesting part of a romance.

about your book, Worth the Wait.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Crimson Romance
Length (words): 78,000
Heat rating (based movie ratings): R
Tagline: When a virgin frustrated by her nonexistent dating life
asks a playboy for a one-night stand, can they really ignore their attraction after
the affair?

After Tasha Smith is dumped yet again because of her virginity,
decides it’s time to stop saving herself for marriage and start dating like women
in the twenty-first century. She sets out to find a man rumored to be good enough
in bed to relieve her of the nuisance, but discreet enough to keep her request a
secret. Jared Patterson seems like the perfect candidate. Yet after one searing
kiss, she wonders if she’ll escape the night unscathed.

Jared’s job as a successful fitness instructor and entrepreneur
has helped him keep a string of meaningless relationships from the east to the west
coast. After learning the hard way that women can’t be trusted, he has no qualms
going from one sex only relationship to the next. Although Tasha is one of the few
types of women he avoids–a good girl–the man in him can’t turn down her tempting
What starts out as a onetime thing quickly turns into an affair

Interview (with Tasha)

Tell us about the main
character in your current book. What is she like?
Tasha is a strong woman, but slightly naïve. She enjoys reading,

wants to get married and have a family one day.
If your main character
was here today, what would she say is her strongest point?
Her ability to reign in emotions and handle tough situations
with a level head is her strongest point.
Does she think she has
a weakness? (If so, what does she think it is? What does her lover think it is?
What does her enemy think it is?)
She didn’t, until she asked Jared to take her virginity. Then
she quickly it was difficult for her to deny him. Jared realizes that she’s attached
to him, but does nothing to change that because he get’s attached to her as well.

Her father is a strict Baptist minister that instilled the importance
of abstinence until marriage. This was okay for her in high school and college where
she saw lots of her friends end up with broken hearts because a guy dumped them
after having sex. But later it wasn’t such a novelty. Men weren’t interested in
dating a woman when sex automatically meant marriage. She’s tired of her virginity

old you were how old would you be?
Despite achieving so much in my career, the being unable to lose
my virginity by 29 makes me feel as if I’m still in my teens.

Getting more than you bargained for
If you came with a warning
label, what would it say?
Caution: This woman may be virgin, but she will bring a certain
playboy to his knees.

Please Fill in the Blanks (as Tasha)

I love pizza with pepperoni and sausage.
I’m always ready for watching a good game of.
When I’m alone, I work in my garden.
You’d never be able to tell, but pretending to be my daddy’s
good girl is annoying the crap out of me
If I had a halo it would be on
fire because of the thoughts of Jared running through my head
If I could afford to go to the NBA all-star weekend I’d
attend all the parties and meet my favorite NBA stars.
I can never regret asking Jared to take my virginity because
in the end it was a blessing.
