The Shifter’s Kiss #Erotic Paranormal Romance #FreeRead

THE SHIFTER'S KISS erotic paranormal romanceWhile I love my romantic suspense and vampire stories, it’s always fun to change it up with some other kind of demon, in this case a shifter. But unlike NIGHT OF THE COUGAR where I explored one of my favorites – cat shifters – OMG sexy purring alpha heroes whew – the shifter in THE SHIFTER’S KISS isn’t warm and soft and purring.

She’s powerful, fast and can be deadly. She’s also one of the last of her kind which made her story even more compelling for me. Think about this: Would you give up what you were for love? Especially if it meant the possible extinction of your race?

That’s the choice Nali, my shark shifter heroine, has to face in THE SHIFTER’S KISS. Here’s a little blurb about it and a free read!

After almost losing his life in the line of duty, firefighter Victor Edwards turned to his true passion: the ocean, the one place he feels at peace. By day, he studies a magnificent shark. By night he is haunted by erotic dreams of a beautiful woman, filled with a longing he can’t understand.

Nali is almost the last of her kind. She knows it’s dangerous to swim so close to shore, but she is drawn to the scarred man watching her and craves his touch on her human form. She can’t help revealing herself to help Victor when he’s injured—and offering herself to him for one week of pleasure. For she only has a few days before she must return to the sea…

THE SHIFTER'S KISS Erotic Paranormal Romance Novella by

Wicked Wednesday – How Wicked Do You Like it?

Diana Reyes, FBI AgentToday’s Wicked Wednesday is going to be a little different. Today we’re going to chat about just how wicked you like your stories!

As you may know, I’ve recently done some erotic romance for the Nocturne Cravings line. I include the word “romance” in there because for me the story has to have an emotional arc that involves the characters coming to care about one another.

All the Cravings novellas have had some more intense, slightly wicked things going on. Toys, bondage and other edgy happenings. One of the stories, HER VAMPIRE LOVER, is more about the foreplay leading up to the lovemaking. The anticipation which makes the fulfillment all that more exciting.

Now, I know some of you don’t like the really sexy stuff while others do. I’d love to hear from you about what you like. Whether you think there are things that just go to far.

Although I have not read the book about a BDSM relationship that shall not be named on this blog unless you wish to get a remote butt slap, I don’t think I’d be a fan of anything where a woman needs to be the submissive. Not my thing as you can tell from my many kick-butt heroines.

So, what is the line you don’t like to see crossed in your sexy romance novels? Do you think we’re going a little too far? I’d love to hear from you today!

4.5 Stars for KISSED BY A VAMPIRE! Time to celebrate!

Kissed by a Vampire in South Beach Nocturne CravingWOW! I got home to find my copy of the November RT BOOK REVIEWS sitting on the kitchen table and opened it up to read their review for KISSED BY A VAMPIRE. I’m sharing a little snippet of it with you today.

KISSED BY A VAMPIRE (4 1/2 stars) by Caridad Pineiro:

“It’s quite interesting how Pineiro manages to separate Stacia’s vampire nature from her kinder human instincts in this compelling read with sexy characters and an exciting storyline.”

Woo hoo! I am so glad that they loved Alex and Stacia’s story because Stacia is one of my all time favorite characters.

So I guess it’s time for a little celebration and a lot of Friday Fun! I’m going to get you in the mood for some of that South Beach sizzle from KISSED BY A VAMPIRE with an oldie, but goodie.

Crank up the volume and get on your feet (another great song by the way!) for Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine!

Sizzlin’ Stacia in South Beach

After so long, I’m very happy to chat with you about the next book in THE CALLING/REBORN vampire series. KISSED BY A VAMPIRE will be available on October 16 from Harlequin Nocturne.

The heroine in the novel is Stacia, a nearly two thousand year old vampiress who has seen her share of pain and death. She herself experienced it in the days before her wedding when she is turned by her husband-to-be and after, when he enslaves her as she struggles to deal with her new undead life.

Stacia always presented a wealth of contradictions for me. When she first appeared in DEATH CALLS (a 2006 CATAROMANCE Reviewers Choice Winner), you knew she was brash and almost promiscuous as she chased after both Ryder and Diana with equal fervor.

I knew that her sexual pursuit hid a much greater need: To be loved.

That became very apparent in DESIRE CALLS where Stacia and Blake explore their attraction. You can read that story for free by clicking here.

Ever since then, I’ve been trying to find a way to give Stacia her happily-ever-after. There was something about her deep loneliness and the outrageous behavior that she uses to hide it that really called to me. I hope you’ll enjoy her story, KISSED BY A VAMPIRE, when it’s released on October 16.

I also hope you’ll enjoy a slightly different location for KISSED BY A VAMPIRE since I’m moving Stacia’s story to South Beach. It was time for a bit of change from the other Manhattan locales for THE CALLING/REBORN novels.

South Beach was the perfect location for Stacia to meet the man who would challenge her: Sexy DEA Agent Alex Garcia. You might also remember Alex from DEATH CALLS. Alex is Diana’s ex-lover and the events from their brief reunion in New York have had a lasting effect on Alex. KISSED BY A VAMPIRE is as much Alex’s story as it is Stacia’s and I hope you will love this honorable and caring man as much as I do.

I also had another reason for setting the story in South Beach — I’ve been there a few times and wanted to share with you the feel of the sizzling South Beach strip. To get you in the mood, here are some photos of the area where Stacia and Alex will meet and face danger as they fall in love.

I’ll be sharing more Behind the Scenes photos and history with you as we approach the release of KISSED BY A VAMPIRE!
