An Introduction to Alec from LUCK OF THE DRAGON by Susannah Scott {Guest Post + Giveaway}

A big HELLO to Susannah Scott who's stopping by today to talk about her fun and flirty paranormal romance, Luck of the Dragon!

Hi Lori,

Thank so much for having my on Romancing the Dark side today! You asked me to introduce you to a character from my fun, paranormal romance, Luck of the Dragon.

Alec is my uber hot, Joe Manganiello-looking hero. Alec owns a ritzy Las Vegas casino, which provides a hidden-in-plain-sight sanctuary for his dragon-shifting people. His only problem is that Lucy, the sexy gem appraiser trying to steal from him, just might be his mate.

I think the best introduction to Alec comes in the first few pages of the book, from Lucy’s perspective. (This is a paired-down excerpt)

Interview with Melanie Card, Author of the Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer Series

TGIF everyone! Today I have a fun little interview with Entangled Teen author Melanie Card. If you're  a young adult or paranormal romance fan, you'll want to check out Ward Against Death and her upcoming release Ward Against Darkness which includes necromancers, magic, corsets and more!

RtDS: Melanie, it’s a pleasure to have you on the blog today! Tell us a little bit about the world in the Reluctant Necromancer series.

MC: Thanks for inviting me here today. The world in the Reluctant Necromancer series is a rather complicated one. There are many aspects to it: social, political, and religious. I’d say the short description is that it’s loosely based on 16th century Europe. So swords and corsets and carriages, along rival political and religious factions. Add to that magic, the ability to see into the future and, of course, necromancy.

Guest Post: "The Rise of the Geek Girl" + Snag a copy of JUSTICE by Jennifer Harlow

I'd love to welcome author Jennifer Harlow back to the's been too long! Jennifer's stopping by today to share a fun confession that I'm actually guilty of myself....being a geek girl! What??!! Yes...I said on to see if you're part of the Geek-Girl Club, you know you are! Jennifer is also sharing an excerpt of her latest sci-fi release, Justice (yes, superheroes included!). Oh, and did I mention you can snag your own copy of this new awesome book for a limited time?! Go #TeamGeekGirl!

"The Rise of the Geek Girl"
by Jennifer Harlow

I am a geek girl. I have always been a geek girl. I blame my parents and their Doctor Who, Star Trek, Tolkien ways. No My Little Pony or Care Bears for this girl. I grew up watching The Real Ghostbusters, She-Ra Princess of Power and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I wanted to marry Jack Nicholson’s The Joker at age six and even learned how to crack a literal whip after watching Michelle Pfieffer do it in Batman Returns. I named my cat Remy LeBeau after X-Men’s Gambit. At present I have about a thousand comic books, two dozen action figures, and too many trading cards to count in my parent’s basement. In high school I wore graphic t-shirts with the likes of Wonder Woman and The Bride of Frankenstein proudly on my chest. I even went to Comic Con when the only people there were comic book sellers. The only geek box I cannot check off is I’ve never played Dungeons & Dragons mostly because no one ever invited me to. Yes, I am a geek girl. A pioneer geek girl. And the struggle was worth it.

Guest Post: "Mate Me or Date Me!" by Poppy Dennison

I'd like to welcome author Poppy Dennison to the blog today! Poppy is celebrating her latest release, Born this Way, a steamy M/M Paranormal Romance with a forbidden romance and lion shifters. Do I have your attention? Well, let's not waste any time and see what Ms. Dennison has to say!

"Mate Me or Date Me!"
 By Poppy Dennison

True confession time: I love the fated mates trope. Seriously love it. How cool would it be to just *know* that the one you love is the person fate meant for you to be with? It sure would make dating a lot simpler…or would it?

In Born This Way, my new novella from Dreamspinner Press, I wanted to explore the trope a bit. What happens when a shifter knows his mate, but his mate is oh-so-human and doesn’t have the advantage of super senses?

Audio Review: Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep

Title: Spider's Bite
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Elemental Assassin #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Narrator: Lauren Fortgang
Publisher: Audible Frontiers
Source: Purchased from
Buy the Book: Amazon | B&N | Audible

My name is Gin Blanco. They call me the Spider—the most feared assassin in the South (and a part-time cook at the Pork Pit BBQ joint.) As a Stone elemental, I can hear the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet and feel the vibrations of the soaring mountains above me, though I don’t use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

After a ruthless Air elemental double-crossed me and killed my handler, I’m out for revenge. And I’ll exterminate anyone who gets in my way. I may look hot in a miniskirt, but I’m still one of the bad guys. Which is why I’m in trouble when irresistibly rugged Detective Donovan Caine agrees to help. The last thing a coldhearted killer needs when she’s battling a magic more powerful than her own is a sexy distraction... especially when he wants her dead just as much as the enemy.

Virtual Book Tour: The Seen Trilogy by Cynthia Sax {Guest Post + Giveaway}

Welcome to my stop on The Seen Trilogy Book Tour via Tasty Book Tours. Today I'm hosting author Cynthia Sax who's sharing a little about her new contemporary erotic series and writing romances. There's also an awesome giveaway to enter! 

Contemporary Erotic Romances 
Cynthia Sax, Author of He Watches Me 

He Watches Me, recently released from Avon Impulse, is my first published contemporary erotic romance. I’ve always written in this genre. The very first erotic romance I ever wrote was a contemporary (which did involve my favorite kinks – exhibitionism and voyeurism) but I didn’t have any of these stories published.

My contemporary erotic romances felt too real, too personal. I wrote these stories for me and didn’t submit them to publishers. It took a series of stories I absolutely love (He Watches Me, He Touches Me, and He Claims me) and my dream publisher (Avon Impulse) to coax me into sharing my contemporary erotic romances with the world.

Top Five Things I Love About Jax and Veronica from "Jax and the Beanstalk Zombies" By Avery Flynn

One of the many reasons why I think Lori is totally fab? She comes up with the best ideas for guest blogs. I only hope this lives up to how much I loved her question.

Lori: What are five things you love about your characters in Jax and the Beanstalk Zombies?

Avery: Only five? Ha, just kidding. :) OK, here they are presented in order that hit my brain as opposed to in order of importance. I only wish I thought with that much organization. I’d need a lot more coffee to make that happen.
