The Next Big Thing

I was tagged in The Next Big Thing by the lovely Romy Sommer, aka historical writer Rae Summers. Rae has a new book out called An Innocent Abroad. It's available at The Wild Rose Press and Amazon.

Now, about The Next Big Thing. Basically we have to answer 10 questions about our work in progress (wip). Here are mine:

What is your working title of your book?

Where did the idea come from for the book?
It’s the third in a series I wrote called Wanton Witches.  The initial concept was sparked by the idea of having three witch-practicing rosy-cheeked aunts trying to set their niece up on a date, which instead leads her to the love of her life.

What genre does your book fall under?
Paranormal erotic romance

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Hmm…not sure actually. I did have a visual point of focus for writing my characters in Unraveled, but they were nameless models I luckily stumbled upon and whom I thought resembled my characters.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
 The only hero destined to free Princess Tahara from a wretched spell so she can save her kingdom from a ruthless warlock, is Nickolas Coutrane and he isn’t one bit happy about it at all. 

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I hope to sell this book to Ellora’s Cave where book 1 and book 2 are already available.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It’s a very dirty draft, but about two weeks. This was one-half of my Nano project for 2012.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Definitely Unbound (book 1) and Undone (book 2) since they feature the same three witch aunts bringing their own brand of love magic to my main characters.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Actually, I can’t remember specifically but I think it was my love for paranormal romances that had me trying my hand at it.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
I have a very sexy and stubborn hero, a klutzy witch heroine, a crazy bear, an unintended loss of sexual history, and three lovable aunts J

Now instead of tagging five other writers, I’m only tagging four, and they are:

Fiery Friday Excerpt: Undone

Aren’t the best weekends when you have nothing to do? That’ll be me this weekend, doing nothing and doing it well!  And now for my fiery Friday excerpt I’ve chosen something from Undone – Wanton Witches Book 2.

His anger together with the sexual frustration she instilled reached boiling point. With nothing but the force of his thoughts, he brought her to stand directly before him, not an inch between them. She raised her hand. He thwarted her intention to slap his face by binding both her hands to a tree branch above her head. Pleased with himself, he glanced at her feet and gently nudged her legs apart. The fragrance of her pussy latched on to a slight breeze tickling about her skirt and traveled into his system. She looked at him startled, furious and so darn sexy.
“What’s the matter? Don’t like what I’m doing to you?”
“What are you doing?”
“I thought you taught me well enough for you to know exactly what I’m going to do.” He rounded her curvaceous body, losing what was left of his restraint. He had her tied up for his use. He couldn’t think about anything else but fucking her. He pressed against her body, her firm ass locked with his cock. She shuddered and yanked away from him. He brought her back, right where he wanted her.
“Feel what you do to me,” he whispered into her ear, at the same time using his thought to manipulate the buttons of her shirt. Gooseflesh rose from her skin as he peeled her shirt off her body without using his hands. Her bra came off next. His fingers drifted to those deep-red nipples of hers. He stroked them gently, plying them with tender caresses that had her whimpering against him.
“Zach, don’t do this, please.”
“I can do anything I want to you. I own you, didn’t you hear? Without me, you’ll die.” 

Happy writing!

Fiery Friday Excerpt: Unbound

TGIF! And here's something hot from Unbound – Book 1 in the Wanton Witches Series

“Say you wanted me, Michelle, in spite of the spell, before the spell.” His leg slipped between hers—her robe opened, allowing him easy access. “I need to hear you say it.” He shifted the weight of his body. Her naked pussy brushed against his thigh. Pure rousing need filtered through her. She gasped for breath. He captured her mouth and filled it with untamed desire.

Clear, concise thrills of passion streamed into her blood, unhindered by magic, immaculately natural. She clung to him, his mouth, his body. Her hand tore at his chest—desperate to climb into his skin and feel his violent heartbeat from the inside. She ran out of air and didn’t care—his touch, when she was this clearheaded, nourished the morsels of her soul. She poured herself into him, forgot caution, holding back, being untouchable. Wore down her own defenses until she sagged against him, mewling, whimpering, begging to crawl inside him.

He took her in, matching and exceeding her need with his superior strength. His hands fell from her face to her waist, lifted her off the floor and backed her into a wall. His chest crushed her breasts, his mouth bruised her lips. His cock, rock hard, possessed her body without penetrating her.

Happy weekend!
