I always love learning about the authors. Thank you, Stephanie, for joining me today :)
Tell us 5 things that make you happy.
A great romance book. A perfectly cooked steak. A good Fuzzy Navel or Mojito. A good run on a cool day. Making my husband laugh.
What makes your perfect man, perfect? What do you look for in a hero?
The perfect man knows how to laugh, knows how to make a woman feel sexy, and has the confidence to handle any situation. Exactly what I look for (and found) in a man.
What qualities make up your least favourite heroine?
The TSTL syndrome. Too stupid to live. If the heroine doesn’t even have the slightest bit of common sense, I can’t imagine why the hunky hero would even want to be with her.
Do you have any quirks? When writing, or otherwise?
If my desk is messy, so is my writing. Every couple of days, I have to clean off my desk so I don’t get distracted by all the stuff.
Do you have any hobbies that you take part in when you aren’t writing?
I love to run. I’m not fast but I’m steady. And I love to run and plot.
What do you like to read?
The same things I like to read with one exception. I love to read and write erotic contemporary and paranormal. And I love to read M/M.
If you had to pick one of your characters to survive a zombie apocalypse with, who would it be and why?
Kyle from KISS OF MOONLIGHT. He’d be able to keep me safe and he’s one of my favourite heroes. He’s quiet but he’s so damn smart and sexy.
Tell us a bit about how the idea for your book came about.
The idea for AN INDECENT PROPOSITION came from my love of the Beauty and the Beast story. I knew I wanted to write my own version of that and I came up with the character of Erik pretty quickly. But what if there were two beasts? One with physical scars and one with internal scars? Two is always better than one, if you ask me.
Which of the seven deadly sins are you most partial to? Which do you indulge in the most?
Gluttony. Definitely. Chocolate should be illegal.
Who is the person who most inspired you? Either in your life, or writing?
My English teacher, Mr. Shaner. He’s the first person who made me believe I could be a writer.
Do you have a favourite quote?
Finish the damn book.
Can you tell us a little about your latest project?
AN INDECENT PROPOSITION is a ménage and I love writing ménage. Two hot heroes. What’s not to love? Erik and Keegan are two very different characters but both are men I wouldn’t mind spending forever with. Jules is a woman who’s comfortable in her own skin and is strong enough to take on two men who have scars inside and out.
Last but not least, if you could be anyone else in the world, who would it be, and why?
Nalini Singh, so I can know where she’s going with the Psy/Changeling series.
Ooh if you ever become Nalini, lend me the archangel Raphael for like, a year, or something. That man could dance with me over Manhattan any day ;)
An Indecent Proposition
(The Complete Story)
One woman. Two men. Half a million dollars. One night...
One night. That's all Erik and Keegan want with Julianne. And they've come up with the perfect plan: Offer her a half-million dollars. Julianne is in debt up to her eyeballs due to her mother's illness. Five-hundred-thousand dollars would pay off her bills and give her a start on a new life. All she needs to do is have sex with a man she's never met.
An explosion left Erik with scars, physical and psychological. Work is his only refuge. Until he sees Julianne through a surveillance camera. And he discovers a desire he thought had been burned out of him. Keegan has watched his best friend retreat from the world for too long. If his desire for Julianne brings him back to life, Keegan will bring her to him, whatever it takes.
But what happens when the night is over? That's the best part of the story...

Salon Games, #1
Antiques dealer Annabelle Elder’s life is nowhere near as passionate as the erotic art she collects. A cheating ex-boyfriend and her business have seen to that. So when she attends a New Year’s Eve party at Haven Hotel, she sees a chance to blow off some steam. But she never expected to meet anyone like Jared—or to experience such passion in his arms…
Handsome, rich, and charming as hell, Jared Golden brought his Midas touch to Haven Hotel—and created an anything-goes pleasure palace on one floor to cater to his special friends and their very special desires. After falling in lust with Annabelle at first sight, seducing her was easier than he expected. What he didn’t expect was to be seduced in turn…
But unrestrained passion in the bedroom is not the only spark between Annabelle and Jared. Their mutual attraction is confounded by their separate pasts. Caught in an ever-growing web of painful secrets and sensual fantasy, will they be able to face the truth about themselves and trust in true love?

Salon Games, #2
Tyler Golden is all about control. It’s an attitude that helped him and his brother build Haven, a boutique hotel in Philadelphia. The only thing Tyler couldn’t control was his fiancée’s death. It left him emotionally guarded, and willing to go only so far with women: satisfying his sexual needs.
Kate Song knows the feeling. Her sole focus is her dream to be a lingerie designer. She’s not about to be distracted by any man. No matter who he is. Or how demanding. Or forceful. Or captivatingly sexy. Or so she thought.
Tyler has the power to make her dream come true. Who can say no to such a dominating personality? Who would want to? Not Kate. Offering her body for submission is one thing. But giving her heart and soul is another. Now Tyler may discover that the one woman who taught him to love again is the one woman he might not be able to keep.

I'm a recovering English major and a reformed reporter who enjoys making up stories much more than writing about real life. I write sexy series that combine heat with heart. The Salon Games series (BY PRIVATE INVITATION, NO RESERVATIONS, upcoming OVER EXPOSED) and AN INDECENT PROPOSITION are contemporary erotic romances. I also write five paranormal erotic series: Magical Seduction, Lucani Lovers, Forgotten Goddesses, Darkly Enchanted and Lovers on the Fringe. And I write the straight contemporary romance series, DeMarco Investigations.
I'm happily married to a Springsteen fanatic and I'm the mother of two sons who love me even when they don't have any clean clothes and dinner is whatever they can find in the fridge.
