Author Override is the place where authors take the reins and take you on a journey into their world. Some may allow you into their private writing dens. Others may take you along with them on research trips or interviews. Whatever the case may be, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride because here you’ll get an in-depth look into an author’s musings.
Thank you so much for letting me visit with you today! It’s always fun to spend time with you and chat about the inspiration for my latest releases!
I have two very different novellas for you this month. The first is THE SHIFTER’S KISS, an erotic paranormal romance with a very unusual premise: a goddess who has the ability to shift from being a shark to a human form. There is just one catch: She can’t stay on land for too long. If she does, she will gradually lose her powers until she will no longer be able to return to the sea. As others of her race have left the ocean for life on land, Nali, the shark goddess, finds herself increasingly alone until she takes note of a scarred human who has been spending a lot of time along her reef. The attraction that is simmering deep inside her only increase when the man, Victor, risks his life to help save her from some spearfisherman.
The inspiration for Nali comes from the San Blas Islands, a small, isolated chain of islands that are part of Panama. I was lucky enough to visit Panama for work and since then, I’ve wanted to set a story there. That’s what inspired, in part, this story. I also hope to one day write a story revolving around the building of the Panama Canal since that was such a fascinating time!
Another fascinating time in history inspired GHOST OF A CHANCE, a paranormal romance mystery set along the Jersey Shore: Prohibition. I was researching another story and started wondering about the kind of people who would become rum runners. The idea of a good guy who ran rum stuck in my brain, but there wasn’t going to be a happy ending for him, at least not right away. It was going to take a long wait. So long that by then our rum runner was going to be a ghost! The mystery around his death is the reason that the heroine, Tracy Gomez, gathers with other people, including sexy attorney Peter Angelo, in order to try and solve an eighty year old mystery. GHOST OF A CHANCE is kind of like a game of Clue with some ghosts and sexiness!
Thanks again for letting me visit! I hope you’ve enjoyed these behind the scenes insights about what inspired my two novellas.
THE SHIFTER’S KISS
Erotic paranormal romance novella
Harlequin Nocturne Cravings
After almost losing his life in the line of duty, firefighter Victor Edwards turned to his true passion: the ocean, the one place he feels at peace. By day, he studies a magnificent shark. By night he is haunted by erotic dreams of a beautiful woman, filled with a longing he can’t understand.
Nali is almost the last of her kind. She knows it’s dangerous to swim so close to shore, but she is drawn to the scarred man watching her and craves his touch on her human form. She can’t help revealing herself to help Victor when he’s injured—and offering herself to him for one week of pleasure. For she only has a few days before she must return to the sea…
GHOST OF A CHANCE
A paranormal romance novella
True crime writer Tracy Gomez is unsure of what to make of the unusual invitation from New York City attorney Peter Angelo: A one million dollar prize to anyone who can solve the mystery of three deaths which had occurred nearly eighty years earlier. Tracy desperately needs the money to fix up the old inn she’s just inherited and solving the crime will also provide welcome publicity to help her sagging writing career. But accepting the invitation brings unexpected challenges, like spectral help during a séance and Tracy’s attraction to the sexy attorney monitoring the contest. Does Tracy only have a ghost of a chance to discover the secrets of the past or can she win a prize far better than a million dollars?
