Kayden Claremont ~ Tartan Temptation Paranormal Erotic Romance

Well I have to say this is a first, I do not think I have ever featured a paranormal erotic romance author. As it is almost  hogmanay there is no better time to talk about Tartan Temptation! Please join me in welcoming Kayden Claremont. Great title by the way. Tell me Kayden how did Tartan Temptation come about?

‘I love a man in a Kilt, I mean—who doesn’t.

When The Wild Rose Press asked for stories for their Real Men Wear Kilts series I was in heaven. I went through the usual list of placed you’d find a kilt-wearing hunk, but decided to have Brodie Murdock wear his kilt every day. After all, it would be such a pity to save all the scrumptiousness just for special occasions. 

Since I write paranormal erotic romance, I had to come up with his paranormal quality. I made Brodie Murdock a kilt-wearing, motorcycle-riding hottie with a secret he can only share with his destined mate.

Brodie took over the story so I had to make sure Cora Siegfried was he match in every way. She became a kick-ass heroine who wouldn’t back down from fighting for the man she loves.

With his throne on the line, Brodie Murdock needs to secure his kingdom by taking a bride. When the only woman he’s ever wanted, Cora Siegfried, steps right into his path, he knows the legends are true. She is his destiny. But will she agree?’

Wow, it sounds action packed and full of adventure! Good luck with the release Kayden and thanks for sharing with us.

Financial planner Cora Siegfried has returned to her hometown to settle her late father’s estate. Get in, get out, that’s the plan. When she’s almost run over by a kilt-wearing hottie on a motorcycle, all her well-laid plans go up in smoke, and all she can think about is getting well laid by her childhood crush. But after what she hoped would be a one-night stand, leaving him might not be as easy. Talk about a tartan temptation.

With his throne on the line, Brodie Murdock needs to secure his kingdom by taking a bride. When the only woman he’s ever wanted steps right into his path, he knows the legends are true. She is his destiny. The feisty female isn’t hard to seduce into his bed for the night, but she’s proving difficult to convince they are meant for forever. And then there’s the secret that could destroy any chance of their future–a secret he’s not ready to confess. Not until his stubborn soul mate admits she needs him for more than sex.

Barbara has brought with her a bookish gift. Here’s your chance to read one of Barbara Edwards books for free. Fill in the form on the Wings EPress website with Annie’s Heart by Barbara Edwards to receive the purchase coupon.

How did Annie’s Heart come about Barbara?

Annie’s Heart was the result of a dream I had about living on the Kansas plains after the Civil War ended. I researched the area and found the hardships settlers faced to be overwhelming. I was surprised so many not only survived, but thrived. Annie is a strong woman with too many problems, but she is a survivor.
I enjoy historical fiction and to be honest being a Brit the American civil war is not something I know too much about. If you’d like to know more about Annie’s Dream read on….

Thursday Thoughts

At this time of year it is so easy to get caught up in….well, in everything! I become reflective and start to look back at the year as impartially as I can, looking for the good, the bad and the could do better moments. As a writer I am very fortunate to be able to spend time doing what I love. My thoughts turn to those who, for whatever reason are not fortunate, whether through war, deprivation or ill health they do not wish to look back. This year has been tough for so many people. With that in mind I would like to draw your attention to a few charities who are doing some outstanding work.

The Power of One

It is almost a week since the release of my second novel Forbidden Colours. I am happy to report things have not gone too badly. After an initial heart in the mouth moment, the print copies are now all shiny and beautiful!! A friend of mine asked if she could get my books at the library and that got me to thinking… There is absolutely no reason why not but… and this is where the power of 1 comes in… you will need to ask for it. You may in fact need to ask and keep asking, or you may need to make friends with the lovely librarian. I would love for my books to be available in libraries. Not everyone can afford to buy books and not everyone wants to own them, but everyone should have access to read them. In these times of budget cuts and austerity, libraries are a valuable resource worth endorsing. I would like to ask for your help. Next time you are near your local library, go and browse, see what you can find and if you feel able, ask for my book. The power of 1 is a wonderful gift!

 

It’s All About The Book!

Today, December 8th 2016 is the release day of my second novel ‘Forbidden Colours’. It has been an amazing journey getting from ‘What If?’ to ‘The End.’ in just under 12 months. It has challenged me, shook me up, rearranged me and put me back together again. At times, I was so far out of my comfort zone I felt as if I was skydiving without a parachute! Enough of my waffle – I shall save that for another blog post! Today is all about the book.
Forbidden Colours started as a romance with elements of suspense. My completed offering is something much darker and psychological. Yes, the romance is still there however, the final version is ultimately a thriller with elements of romance. If you like romance – you will like this book, if you like suspense – you will like this book, if you like thrillers – you will like this book. If however you like nail biting, edge of your seat drama – you will love this book.
All I ask is you give it a try and, as it’s Christmas, a review on Amazon or Good Reads would be fabulous too!

What if your memories were not your memories? What if the drug hailed as a cure became a curse and ultimately your destruction?
Midori Yates works for pharmaceutical giant KLD. The launch of new drug Centoria has revolutionised the treatment of amnesia, with outstanding results. Trials exploring its use in the treatment of Alzheimer’s are on the horizon. But is it really as good as the data suggests?
Neurologist Dr. Nick Campbell has seen amazing results with his patients and is ready to believe in Centoria’s transformational abilities…that is until his patients start displaying strange and worrying symptoms with drastic results. Determined to uncover the truth, Midori and Nick find a conspiracy that is to have devastating consequences for both of them. A dark world threatens to engulf them. Can they survive?
This contemporary thriller will have you turning the pages long into the night

 

Tuesday Spotlight – Keri’s Christmas Wish by Pamela S Thibodeaux

This is my first Christmas post of the season. To get us rolling I’d like to introduce my author friend Pamela S Thibodeaux. Welcome Pamela :). Pamela’s new release  Keri’s Christmas Wish is a wonderful romantic tale which will leave you wanting more. Here Pamela tell’s us about her journey to writing Kerri’s Christmas Wish. Over to you Pam –

“I am 100% panster so when I sat at the computer with one scene in mind, Keri scrolling through her newsfeed and grumbling “bah humbug” over the ‘Christmas in July’ propaganda, I had absolutely NO idea where the story was going or what would happen.

I was introduced to Energy Medicine a couple of years ago and find the whole concept of healing the body – or actually the body healing itself by correcting energy imbalance–fascinating. Along with EM, I’ve discovered the power of positive thoughts and prayers (see: You can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay). Add to that, my belief in the afterlife and the books & movies affirming those beliefs, and well, this story practically wrote itself. What is so amazing and encouraging for me is that Keri’s Christmas Wish is the first romantic story I’ve written in its entirety since my husband passed away in 2009. Oh, I’ve had things published that were already in the works, but other than a couple NF pieces, it is the only thing written from start to finish. Hopefully this means I’m in a much better place emotionally and other books/novellas/stories are sure to follow”.

For as long as she can remember, Keri Jackson has despised the hype and commercialism around Christmas so much she seldom enjoys the holiday. Will she get her wish and be free of the angst to truly enjoy Christmas this year?

 A devout Christian at heart, Jeremy Hinton, a Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Spiritual Mentor and Energy Medicine Practitioner has studied all of the world’s religions and homeopathic healing modalities. But when a rare bacterial infection threatens the life of the woman he loves, will all of his faith and training be for naught?

 

Thanks Pam, a wonderful tale which is perfect for the Christmas season. Here’s a snippet to whet your appetite… Continue reading “Tuesday Spotlight – Keri’s Christmas Wish by Pamela S Thibodeaux”
