It started with the murder of a stranger. Then the crows appeared

Ari and Andreas know the O-Seven will never leave them alone. Ari is carrying Andreas’s mortal child, but the vampire elders are convinced the child will be the first vampire baby and are out to posses it. Or kill it. Either way, Ari and Andreas will do anything to keep her unborn child safe, even if it means Ari has to go into hiding and leave Andreas exposed to the O-Seven alone.

But then the O-Seven discover the Mahmo magic that can turn an elder into a winged killer, and each time Ari runs, they find her again. The only way to protect their child’s future is to defeat the O-Seven, once and for all. And to do that, Ari will have to face the elders head-on in their castle stronghold deep in Germany’s Black Forest…

Reconciling the past. Speeding toward the future. Can a cowboy’s heart survive the now?

Country singer Tate McGill has never been happier. He’s engaged to Isabelle, the woman of his dreams, and his music career has shot him straight to the top. With his adopted Blake clan gathered in Las Vegas for the last leg of his world tour, Tate’s excited to publicly announce his engagement. But his excitement is bittersweet. Isabelle has found a collection of beautiful, unpublished country songs by Tate’s late birth mother and a lifetime’s worth of letters between her and his adopted mother, Teri-Lyn, matriarch of the powerful Blake family. Tate’s given all he has to overcome his abusive past and build a future for himself and Isabelle, but he’s not sure if his birth mother’s words will bring him closure, or more pain.

Isabelle Reed has a wonderful secret—and terrible timing. She’s engaged to her sexy country music star, Tate McGill, and after months of physical therapy to heal the arm broken by her abusive ex-husband, she’s finally able to play her violin professionally again. But best of all, she’s pregnant! Unfortunately, her timing couldn’t be worse. Tate’s afraid to have children, fearing he’ll perpetrate the cycle of abuse he suffered as a child. And with the shadows of his birth mother’s letters, and Isabelle’s disapproving father coming to meet “that cowboy,” Tate has enough on his plate. His entire career is riding on this last gig of his tour and on the film that’s being made about him and his band. He can’t be distracted by the ghosts of his past that Isabelle knows her news will raise. If she can just hide her morning sickness until after Vegas…

But Isabelle’s father won’t be appeased, and when Tate’s past follows him to Vegas, it only fuels her father’s disapproval. With the baby coming, Isabelle wants everyone to get along. Will she really have to choose between her new life with Tate and her father’s love?

Interview with Kaitlin Maitland

I’m happy to present my interview with Kaitlin Maitland. The third book in her Phoenix Trilogy has recently released! Phoenix Flying is a very hot contemporary erotic romance.

Phoenixrising_ByKaitlinMaitland-200x300

(blurb and excerpt below)

* * *

Hi, Kaitlin. Thanks for stopping by to talk a little about your writing! Let’s jump right in. Tell me a little about the characters and the conflict in Phoenix Flying.

Phoenix Flying is the third book in the Phoenix Trilogy so readers actually meet the two main characters—Gabriel & Anne—in the previous two books. I think I chose to give Anne her own book because she just seemed like she deserved a happy ending. I had a soft spot for her from the beginning because she’s not a svelte heroine that can fit into a pair of size 2 jeans. She’s a big woman who suffered through a horrible marriage, which I kind of touched upon in the Trilogy’s first book. Her husband was the worst kind of cheater. He left her confidence in shreds and she’s been trying SO hard ever since to find herself and where she belongs.

I adore Anne as a character because she wants so badly for everyone to think well of her. She’s a complete romantic. She paints in watercolors and desperately wants to be part of the vibrant life she watches from her patio. Yet she’s got a pretty classic case of I’m-not-good-enough-for-love going on too. She wants Prince Charming, but she’s bought into the idea that a girl like her doesn’t deserve the HEA.

Which is why I gave her Gabriel Hawkins on a platter. The guy is every girl’s fairytale romance fantasy come to life. Not only is he actually British, he’s ex-military, very fit, built like an old-fashioned warrior, and he loves a woman with curves. He’s also packing around a good chunk of emotional baggage, but when I spun this story together I started realizing that Anne and Gabriel have the sort of baggage that just sort of fits together. They’re stronger together.

I think that’s what readers will really be able to identify with. These are people with trust issues, self-image problems, and a very real desire to protect themselves even when they want so desperately to reach out and connect with a partner. In the end, isn’t that what we all want?

Where’s the story set? How much influence did the setting have on the atmosphere/characters/development of the story?

This story, like the rest of the Trilogy, is set in a bar called the Phoenix Rising. If you’ve never been to my bar, you really need to take a trip. The Phoenix is the sort of place where anything goes. The setting has a huge impact on the story because the characters are gritty and real just like the bar. If patrons at the Phoenix want a side of down and dirty sex in a dark corner with their beer, they can have it. The only rule is that it has to be consensual, and you’d better leave your inhibitions at home.

When I created the Phoenix, I was looking for the type of place that encourages people to check their repression at the door. There are so many things about sex that we giggle and whisper about, but we never give ourselves the chance to explore and ask questions. Let’s just say that I’ve been asked more than once if this place is real because readers are dying to visit.

What do readers have to look forward to in the future from Kaitlin Maitland?

I have several other contemporary romance series available. I’ve just finished up the last book in my Clan McKinloch series, and book 7 of my Boston Avant-Garde series is releasing this spring. But what I’m really excited about is a new paranormal series, Elemental Witchcraft. I laughingly refer to this as my triple threat series because not only am I working with ménage pairings, I’m incorporating shifters, and witches into the storylines.

I’m headed back to the Northeast for this one, specifically a tiny New England town named Haven, Massachusetts. Let’s just say that in 1692 when the witch Hysteria took place in Salem Town and Salem Village, there was a very powerful, very old coven in Haven that split right down the middle. Now after centuries of struggle, change is coming.

The first book is tentatively titled Water From Stone and I’m really excited to be working on it. I’m totally focused on this project for now and I think readers will enjoy the results. At least I HOPE they will!

Do you listen to music when you write? Does music ever influence your writing?

Um, YES! Every last one of my books has a specific playlist. I use iTunes, although I don’t suppose that really matters other than it means I can access that playlist wherever I’m writing, home, office, hotel, anywhere. Music is vital to my creative process and I think I’d go nuts without it. My playlists set the mood. I compile them pretty carefully. Sometimes when I drive and listen to the radio I’ll hear something that sparks an idea. So THAT song will most definitely wind up on the list. Others are picked either because the lyrics seem like something that would resonate with one of the characters, or because the mood just suits.

The best thing about unique playlists happens during the editing process. Writing for me is a little bit like being immersed in another world. Once I’m done with a book I move on to the next project. So when my editor ships me a bunch of edits for a book I may have finished months ago, it’s pretty hard to recapture whatever mood I was in way back then in order to preserve the original idea of the book or the mood of the characters. Being able to go back and pick up a playlist and immerse myself in that for awhile allows me to remember what I meant when I first wrote the story. Hans Christian Anderson once said that when words fail – music speaks. SO true!

Only when we shed our inhibitions do we truly fly.

Gabriel knows there are perks to being a bouncer at the wildest bar in town. The Phoenix Rising is known for being the place to go for a beer and a side of down-and-dirty sex, and Gabriel has seen his share of the action. Anything goes as long as both parties are willing, and when Anne walks in smelling like repressed passion, Gabriel is intrigued.

Anne is tired of being a perpetual wallflower. After divorcing the cheating ex, she heads to the one place in town guaranteed to help her find a good time—The Phoenix Rising. She can’t believe the gorgeous bouncer is attracted to her in spite of her plus-sized body. Being with him is like nothing she’s used to, and he makes her feel like so much more than just a dress size. But Gabriel has secrets. The former British Marine won’t talk about why he’s working as a bouncer in an American bar. Worse, he’s perfectly happy to tell her he doesn’t do long-term commitments. But now that Gabriel has taught Anne what it feels like to fly, how will she ever be able to walk away?

Secrets, madness, lies…and a love forged in the flames of betrayal.

Imprisoned, starved and abused by his captors, Darcel finds his only escape in the depths of madness. But he’s tormented by his own demons, who taunt him with the memories of his past and of his beloved prince, Alasar of Rais. The man who condemned him to this prison for killing the enemy’s high king. The man who betrayed him, when he should have returned a hero. After three years of torment, Darcel is about to give up, to turn himself over to the demon for the blessed release of death. Until he hears the pounding of boots up the prison stairs and finds Alasar in his cell, overjoyed at finally finding him, distraught at his condition, and desperate to save him, with no knowledge of how his friend had come to be there.

After tending his wounds, Alasar transports Darcel back to the palace by sledge, no easy task since it’s deep winter and Darcel is barely alive. But when the enemy raiders attack their party and capture Darcel, it’s clear they seek vengeance for the murder of their king. Until their new king, Harlech, explains that Darcel was not captured, but sold to them. By Alasar.

Caught in a tangled web of secrets, lies, and betrayal, Darcel does not know whom to trust—or whom to serve. With two warring leaders both demanding his loyalty, and both men earning his love, how is Darcel supposed to know what’s real, or where his heart truly lies?

There’s a new evil in town, and it’s gunning for Scarlet…

Scarlet Burke isn’t an ordinary witch. She comes from a long line of Burke witches, whose job it is to protect the good folks of Purgatory, Alabama from things that go bump in the night—and things that might slip through the portal in Fool’s Wood. Normally, it’s an easy gig that doesn’t take much time from her day job. Until her ex-husband turns up dead in a ritualistic killing no one recognizes. William, a mundane, had high-tailed it out of town years ago after getting Scarlet’s baby sister pregnant. So why had he come back? Better yet, who (besides Scarlet) had wanted him dead badly enough to lure him to the forest, stake him, skin him, and drain his blood? It wasn’t a vampire kill, but she was damned if she could determine what it was.

Werewolf Jake Mills, the bossy and possessive chief of police, can’t believe anyone in his town could commit such a brutal crime. And Scarlet can’t believe she’s still trying to avoid his advances. Jake has been chasing her for years, and if he wasn’t so charming—and so drop dead sexy—she might try harder to outrun him. Or at least summon a bit of self-control. But the man simply refuses to stay in the “Just Friends” box she’s placed him in.

But when the killer targets Scarlet’s family, ghouls, demons, and dark fae all come under suspicion. And when her daughters become the targets of an ancient dark ritual, Scarlet and Jake are forced to make an impossible choice. Fight evil with evil, or watch Scarlet’s daughters die…

When you meet your true mate, you’ve got to take the shot…

Werewolf Pack Princess Kelly is overwhelmed with her new business, trouble with the rival cat shifters, and trying to ignore the attraction to her best friend’s younger brother. By bidding on Brandon in the Bachelor Auction, she thought she was just doing him a favor, saving him from the craziness. But now that she’s won him, her wolf wants to mark him as her mate, and she’s starting to lose control. So when he whisks her away for his birthday weekend, how can she say no? Every kiss distracts her. Each caress sets her on fire. And every whiff of his scent makes her wolf want to take him where he stands.

As a former hockey player and werewolf, Brandon knows all about being pulled in different directions. And he knows exactly what he’s asking for when he pursues a relationship with the already overwhelmed Kelly. She may be five years older than he is, and the daughter of his pack’s Alpha, and his sister’s best friend and business partner, but none of that matters. There’s only one person he wants to spend his birthday with, and he’s not going to let her refuse. And when Brandon has his eye on the goal, there’s nothing that can stop him…

In the woods, no one can hear you sneeze…

Daisy Janney–college student and assistant mortician–can’t wait to get out to the country to attend a music festival for spring break. Her favorite band Shizknit will be there. But so will the bugs. And the bathrooms at their campsite are just…wow. Then there’s the secret war being waged by the wizards of the council and a mysterious group of creatures that look a whole lot like bigfoots (bigfeet?). Whatever they are, they seem to know something about Daisy that she doesn’t, and they aren’t telling. Now she’s got to save an entire race of mythical—scratch that, very real but kind of smelly—creatures from the clutches of the deranged (and equally smelly) leader of the council, Caroline. If she plays her cards right, Janie might be able to stay alive…and she might even get to spend what’s left of spring break getting to know the bass player for Shizknit a little better…

Is it alchemy that transforms fear into love?

Italy, 1565—Niccolo is a philosopher, a nobleman, and an honorable man. He’s also an alchemist—considered a heretic and an enemy of the church. When his beloved fiancée dies of a mysterious ailment on the eve of their wedding day, Niccolo loses all direction. Maddened by grief, he attempts a desperate, unthinkable act, one from which there is no turning back: transformation of the dead into the living…

Italy, 2015—While excavating a Renaissance-era burial site, Julia discovers a beautiful but mysterious carving. Wreathed in classic period symbols—a cross, a family crest, an open book—the piece contains another symbol she can’t quite place—an alembic—a type of distillation apparatus used in alchemy. Then she finds something else—a burial plaque commemorating the deaths of two people, a man and a woman. Curious, Julia continues to excavate the site, but before she can complete her work, something gives way beneath her and she falls…or is pulled…through the darkness and emptiness of time…

But when Julia turns up in the body of Niccolo’s fiancée, confusion battles with danger. Inextricably drawn to one another, Julia and Niccolo find solace in each other’s arms. But to love again, they’ll have to defy the deadly prejudice of others and the terrifying power of the Spanish Inquisition. Between love, loss, and murderous betrayal, can the alchemy of love create enough magic to save them?

Until they realize they’re both flying in for the same family wedding…and that they’re going to be part of that same family…

“Ruby’s Valentine” by Arianna Archer

The very last thing Officer Jude Cole wanted to do was arrest the love of his life for murder. Though Ruby had run out on Jude years ago, he’d never stopped carrying a torch for her. She’d recently come back to town, but she wasn’t alone. Now Jude is forced to arrest Ruby for shooting the husband everyone knew abused her. Jude hadn’t been able to capture Ruby’s restless heart then…could he bring himself to cage her now?

Hi, Liah. Thanks for stopping by to talk a little about your writing! Let’s jump right in. So when did you begin writing and why?

I have been writing since I was ten years old and created a picture book series about a man named “Mr. Bee” who had all sorts of adventures with the neighborhood kids, like the zoo. I never stopped, however, I did take a pretty big break from writing when my children were little.

What is your writing process like?

I write every day. It’s the only way to keep the momentum going. I start by identifying the main premise of my novel, then choose my characters. I have a worksheet that I use to identify their motivations and their backgrounds. I often work late into the night.

Are there specific challenges that writers face as opposed to other artists?

I am also a visual artist and I paint. I can start and finish a piece in a day, and there’s immediate gratification with having completed a piece. If you are writing a novel, it’s completely different; months go by before anyone even sees your first draft.

Writer’s block—real or hype?

I can honestly say that I never have writer’s block because when I come to a sort of impasse, I write through it, even if it ends up being kind of crappy on the page. That’s why you edit. I think every writer is different.

Do you prefer to extensively plot your stories, or do you write them as they come to you?

Sadly, I am not an extensive plotter, I’m more of a “panters” and write by the seat of my pants. That can backfire, though, so I created a worksheet, single page, that keeps me on track. I have a general idea of the sequence of events but I don’t outline chapter by chapter.

Any advice to writers just starting out?

Just keep writing. I wrote 3 full length novels with lots of holes before I felt I had a product that I could pitch at a conference. Each novel is easier, but getting through the first few is tough and they probably aren’t publishable.

An Impure world, a perfect murder…

A murdered society debutante, her body sprinkled with 89 Costa Rican butterflies. A headless, gutted corpse washed up on shore with a beautiful, dead teenager. The case is anything but straightforward, and in an uncertain future, where resources are limited and the genetically defective are banished to a ghetto territory for Impures, Chief Detective Ina Stone and her partner, rookie detective Sam Fujimoto, must cross into Pure Territory to find a killer. An Impure herself, Ina must overcome her defect. And when her life is threatened, she must learn to rely on Sam, whose interest in her seems more than just professional.

Yet the Pures may have created a world in which even they don’t want to live anymore. Resources have become too scarce to hide, and a black market for medicine comes to light. When a third murder is discovered, Ina and Sam know there’s a connection. With too many suspects and not enough time, they must find that connection before the killer strikes again.

What harm could come from impersonating royalty?

After years on the road conning wealthy nobles out of their gold, Kiera is ready to give up her life of crime and return to her childhood home of Cearbhall. She’s got one last job in mind, one that will see her set for life. What harm could come from impersonating a country princess to marry a prince and live wealthily ever after? Except her childhood home is nothing like she remembered. The king has gone senile, his younger sons rule with terror, and the crown prince is missing. The prince she’s to wed is only interested in siring an heir, and her future brother-in-law wants to get into her skirts. Deciding the grifter’s life wasn’t so bad after all, Kiera plots her escape. Before she can steal away, she’s discovered and thrown into the dungeon with a crazed wolfborn to die.

Lachlan never thought that he’d see his childhood sweetheart once his wolfborn affliction set in. Nor did he expect to ever see daylight. Imprisoned in the dungeon since adolescence, his brothers have usurped the throne and trail evil in their wake. When Kiera lands in the dungeon with him, he recovers his will to put things right. Kiera may not remember him, but he remembers her, and Lachlan vows to save her from his brothers and their schemes.

Except Kiera wields a power unlike any other, and she doesn’t need saving. But the people of Cearbhall do. As Kiera and Lachlan fight the evil princes, they uncover a greater magic in the world around them, and a powerful magic between them that can’t be denied…
