Q1) Welcome to my blog, Stella. Tell us a little about yourself


I was born in a lovely bustling place in South West Nigeria called, Benin City but I live in London. I’m second in a family of six. I have a B.Sc in Microbiology and an MBA.

I started reading romance novels as a teenager. My writing of romance novels that are a fine blend of intense sensual romance, intrigue and conflict started in 2008. My characters are larger-than-life, feisty and have a heart and soul. The storylines are detailed with heart-stopping romantic twists that come alive.

In 2010, I created Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels. The collection of contemporary romance novels includes, LOITERING SHADOWS, STORMY DEFENSE, BEYOND the LADY, the National Novel Writing Month 2010 winning novel, THE GARDENER’s ICE MAIDEN, SPARKLING DAWN and the New release, HUSBAND to RENT.

When am not writing, I take care of my handsome, life-size hero of a husband and two vibrant & loving ‘near teenagers’. I love to read romance novels, swim and watch TV, including Nollywood and am a huge fan of Strictly Come Dancing.

~*~*~*~*~

He didn’t say anything until he reached her. Heart still pounding, she watched him walk around her slowly, his chest brushing her shoulders—skin on skin. Warm tingles swarmed her body again. Head raised, he sniffed the air around her and she heard something that sounded like a grunt. Curious, she turned to face him. Expectation made her body quiver, her nerve endings on alert waiting for his touch as she held her breath. She wasn’t sure how much longer she could stand upright.

Happy New Week, folks. Today I've interviewed the lovely author Stacy-Deanne for her The Wild Life book tour. Please make her feel welcome. She's also got a gift for 5 lucky persons who leave a comment.

On to the interview...

Q1) Welcome to my blog, Stacy. Please tell us a little about yourself

I’m a proud Texan, born and raised in Houston. I still reside in Houston. I’m single with no kids. I like the simple things in life. Writing is what makes me happy and everything else is just the cherry on top. Something people are shocked to know about me is that I’m 6’1. I love being tall! I’ve been writing professionally since I was 19. I’m 35 now. My primary genres are mystery and suspense with interracial subplots, but I also write women’s fiction and any genre I’m interested in at the time.

#FallIntoRomance: IMMORTAL SEDUCTION by Jennifer Lynne @JenniLynnAuthor

Welcome to the Fall Into Romance Hop hosted by The Romance Reviews. It runs between September 13 to 21.

In this hop we're showcasing books we love. I have chosen a book I've recently finished reading, IMMORTAL SEDUCTION  by Jennifer Lynne.

Why do I love this book?

Jennifer has written a well rounded erotic ménage romance novella. This story has a damaged fire-fighter hero, well, 3 damaged fire-fighter heroes actually.

But it is Ashur's torture and pain that pulls you in from the first few pages of the story and it is him that our heroine, Aphrodite, and the other two, Hugh and Kier have to seduce before they can all heal from the trauma they experienced and have a happy ending.

What surprised and warmed my heart the most, outside of the intensely emotional story, was that Aphrodite herself was also in emotional pain. It made it easy for me to connect with her as a character because she truly understood what the men were going through.

Overall, this is an awesome erotic read with a ménage a quartre storyline that actually worked for me.

Better still, this book is currently on SALE at All Romance eBooks for $1.97 (normal price is $2.99) for a limited time only. Go grab your copy. It is also available on Amazon and other ebook retailers for the usual price.

The Spark That Started The Fire @SJMaylee #TakingChances #Giveaway


Happy Monday, folk! Today, my guest author is SJ Maylee with her debut novella, Taking Chances. Make her feel welcome. She is giving away a $10 gift card to one lucky person, so leave a comment to enter the prize draw.

Last week's winner of an ebook copy of Mated Forever by Michaela Rhua is Karen Roma. Congratulations! Contact me so I can send you the book.

Now over to SJ...
o
The Spark that started the fire.

Lydia and Jake’s story started for me like a spark. The start of a scene is all I had in the beginning, one request from the hero. You’ll know when you read it. It’s in the middle of TAKING CHANCES and everything thing shifts with this one line. I remember the day this scene came to me. I stopped what I was doing and wrote like a mad woman. It’s one of the hottest scenes I’ve ever written and I’m immensely proud of it. In the days and week that followed I discovered who these characters were and what led them to this one scene.


It’s a thread I’m glad I pulled, because what has been unraveled entertains me daily.
Taking Chances

(The Love Projects #1)

by: S.J. Maylee

Genre: Erotic Romance with D/s

Length: Novella

Published: August 23, 2013

Publisher: Evernight Publishing

TAKING CHANCES BLURB:

Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he has the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies, and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. But together they can find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed love.

Can You Handle The Truth? @MichaelaRhua @EvernightPub #Freebie

Happy Monday, folks. Today I'm mighty excited to host my friend and fellow Nuthouse Scribbler Michaela Rhua. Her latest book Mated Forever is a sexy and heart-warming story about following your heart.

I loved reading this book and you can check out my 5-stars review of it here.

I'm also offering a FREE copy of it to one lucky person who leaves a comment here in a giveaway. So make sure you give Michaela a warm welcome.

Now, over to Micky...

Hi Kiru. Thank you for having me on your blog today. I have to say I loved Scars and am so glad you decided to make it into a longer book…now waiting for Secrets and Outcast…the cover is wow!
Today I have entitled my post:

When The Truth Comes Out


What do you do when you are faced with your past? It might be a past that you want to forget; too many memories of partying all night long, casual sex or lies that don't fit in with the carefully cultivated lifestyle you have now. We try to think of the past as a long forgotten place, where we reminisce about fun times with friends, the rush of first love or holidays in hot, sunny places.

All of us have at some point done something we prefer not to recall. *coughs*. But what happens when the not so nice parts of your past come back in an unexpected way or unexpected moment? How do you react?

John Thurston has to own up to his past, when it stares him right in the face.
Now I have to say he is a minor character in my new book Mated Forever, but he has an important part in the story right at the end. He is a strong Alpha who has always tried to be fair and just. He never thought to link all the pieces of the puzzle, not until Jorie is kidnapped and he has to step in.

So how does he react? No SPOILERS here. I will say I am thinking of penning his story sometime…
I'll leave you with the blurb and a quick taste!
