Okay…on with a question for Roxanne…

Of all the paranormal creatures written about today, what is your favorite and why?

Roxanne: I am a vampire fan from way back and they are still my favorite of all the creatures that abound in popular fiction today.

My love for vampires bloomed when I discovered a well worn paperback copy of Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice at a yard sale when I was 10 or 11 years old. After that- I was hooked. I read everything Anne Rice had to offer and then went on to read every other vampire book I could get my hands on.

I was so much of a vamp fan, that the license plate of my car (when I was in my early 20s) had a personalized plate- VAMP. My car was sleek and black and all my friends called it the Vampmobile. LOL

Unfortunatley the vampmobile is long gone (I still have those plates though- one is hanging in my gearhead son’s room and the other is stashed with my memories).

I also still have an undying love for vampires- perhaps more now than ever. Vampires have evolved with the times. So many incarnations of them exist from the sparkling vamps of Twilight to the dark and broody vamps so popular in PNR books. I think they continue to be popular because they evolve and change with the times- though that deep, dark, vamp appeal always stays the same and vamp fans love our bad boys (and girls) with bite.

Vanessa is tired of her boyfriend Simon’s promiscuous vampire ways and stakes him, repeatedly- not close enough to the heart to kill him but close enough to make it hurt. But now she’s had a change of heart and considers embracing the sexual world of the vampire instead of being jealous of it.

Witch in the Middle

Ariadne is a witch torn between two men, a vampire and a human. Her heart doesn’t want to choose but the men force her to make a decision that could break her heart, unless with the help of the Goddess all three of them can come to a mutually acceptable…and enjoyable agreement.

When It Storms

Devon’s witchy girlfriend becomes insatiable every time a storm rolls around and he’s more than happy to give her exactly what she needs.

Monster Inside

Shannon’s never seen her vampire boyfriend, Logan, vamp out before. Then one night he has to kill to save her life. Can she ever look at him the same way again?

The Questioning Concubine

Elita, a pure blood witch, has come home to find who or what killed her parents and to take her rightful place as the head of the coven. After five years of investigating and exhausting all conventional methods at her disposal, she decides to do the one thing a good witch should never do—summon a demon. The demon is not what she expected. Elita is soon swept up in his power… and her own.


The residents of the sleepy little town of Flushing, Michigan had no idea a vampire lived among them, seducing and drinking from all the men in town.

She had no way of knowing he was a vampire hunter and was there for her.

Sea of Blood

Liana made Nerissa a vampire centuries ago in the islands of Greece but she’s never tired of her companion or the way she hunts her prey.

A Halloween to Remember

What says Halloween better than a wild party at an old Victorian mansion complete with its own cemetery? Perhaps meeting the man of your dreams thanks to the magic of Halloween.

Adena can’t believe her eyes when she spots Dimitri in the library- he looks like something straight off the cover of a historical romance novel-the type of guy she’s always dreamed of. Too bad he disappears before she has the chance to introduce herself. When she finally spots him again later that night she decides she’s not letting him get away again. Adena thinks she’s finally found the one. Until she wakes up alone the next morning- in the cemetery.

Halloween magic brought them together but will it be strong enough to keep them together?

Witching You A Merry Christmas

Excerpt from Witch in the Middle

Story #3 in Paranormal Pleasures: Ten Tales of Supernatural Seduction

By Roxanne Rhoads

I smiled seductively, cautiously stepping toward them while unbuttoning my sweater.

The two men looked at me nervously before locking eyes with each other. It seemed they were each silently asking the other “What the hell is she doing?”

I, myself, couldn’t believe what I was doing. As I continued,  I unbuttoned my sweater, then sexily shrugged it off my shoulders and tossed it onto the recliner. I pushed my skirt down into a pile at my feet and kicked it off. While I stood there in my bra and panties, both guys stared at me with their jaws hanging open.

I let the Goddess propel me and decided I wasn’t going to try to choose between them.

I was going to have my cock…and get eaten too. Oh my, now I was thinking naughty. Hell, it was better than wallowing in heartbreak.

I smiled as really naughty and really specific thoughts of having both of my sexy men at the same time sent thrills of electricity coursing through my body. Heat flowed directly to my core making me wet with anticipation.

Drew’s nostrils flared. Nathaniel’s eyes bulged as he said, “Now hold on a minute, Addie. Think about this.”

“Yes, Ariadne, stop and think about this before rushing into something we…you aren’t ready for,” Drew interjected.

I laughed seductively. It was like some other woman had crawled into my skin, someone sexy and confident. “Oh Drew, ancient vampire, I know you aren’t going to be the one to lecture me about sex.”

Drew didn’t have a chance to respond before Nathaniel harshly said, “I won’t do this Addie. I can’t. I will not share you with this bloodsucker.” Nathaniel grabbed his jacket and turned to leave.

The ache inside me started to come back. “Please don’t go, Nathaniel. I need you here. This is how it has to be.” I held onto his arm pleading with him to stay. He wouldn’t even look at me.

“And, you’ve already been sharing her with me for months. What difference does tonight make?” Drew added snidely from behind me.

I turned and shot him a dirty look. “You’re not helping Drew.” Then, I turned back to Nathaniel. “I need you here. All of us need to be here together.”

Nathaniel’s jaw tightened. His fists crunched the leather jacket in his hands. “I’m just a normal, everyday guy, Addie I don’t do orgies, wild parties, threesomes, or any kinky supernatural shit. I think sex should be one on one…between two people that love each other.”

I knew he’d be the one to have the most problems with this. Drew, even though he was extremely territorial, knew how to share. Centuries of sexual experience had taught him there was more to experience than what human morality was willing to allow.

“Sex can be whatever feels right. Nathaniel, I love both of you. Neither one of you will ever accept that unless you see it for yourselves. Unless you learn to share me. Completely. Sexually. Please, share me tonight.”

“I can’t.” He opened the door to leave.

“Then don’t. I didn’t think you could handle it, human. But it’s fine with me. You’re leaving which means you are letting her go. Now she’s all mine, which is exactly what I wanted,” Drew goaded Nathaniel.

My gut tightened. This wasn’t the direction I wanted things to go. Drew knew how to push buttons. I was just afraid they would be the wrong ones, and that this night was going to end in bloodshed rather than pleasure.

Nathaniel stopped in the doorway. His body froze in place, stiff, tense, trying to hide the pain and fear I could sense. He took a deep breath and turned to me, his eyes filled with pain. “Is that true, Addie? If I walk out this door are we over?”

“I can’t choose Nathaniel. I cannot choose between you. If you force me into a choice, I will have to accept the man who can accept me and what I am, who I am, what I want to do. If you’re not able to handle that, then yes, this is goodbye.” My heart was breaking as the words came out, but I had to be strong. The Goddess was guiding me. I had to trust her way was right.

“I will not just walk away and let fangface win you without a fight.” He tossed his jacket back onto the sofa and slammed the door behind him. “You want us both at once, you want to compare us, to make us share you, then fine, may the best man win.”

“This isn’t about winning or losing. I’m not going to pick one or other of you after tonight. I want to keep you both. That’s why you have to learn to share me, either together or separately, but always knowing that I may be with either one of you.”

“This is unfair, Addie. You’re being selfish.”

“No, you’re being selfish trying to make me choose who I love more, when I love you both. Drew is willing to concede to this. Even though all his territorial instincts tell him to make me his, he isn’t the one protesting here.”

Nathaniel towered over Drew ready to fight. “Big freaking deal. The vampire can share. So fucking what? I’m a man, not a monster. I’m not wired that way!” Nathaniel’s nostrils flared, his anger growing. I needed to do something to stop the fight. Fly the white flag. Or maybe, the white panties. I was already standing there in just my undies. Maybe, I should get rid of everything, bare my body and soul to my men. Hmmm. It would either cause a bigger fight or sooth the savage beasts into thinking about something other than fighting. Sex.

So, I sauntered sexily over to the men, pushed my way between them and threw out all the sex vibes I could.

Drew looked hesitantly at me, his eyes glowing slightly with anger. He took a breath he didn’t need, then looked over to Nathaniel. I could feel Nathaniel’s anger subside. His heat flared as his hesitation lessened. I felt his consignment to being part of this. I turned on tiptoe and grabbed his face, pulling it down to me.

I kissed his lips gently and murmured, “I love you, Nathaniel,” quietly against them.

Then, I turned back around to face Drew.  I didn’t have to stand on tiptoe to reach him as he lowered his face to mine. “Do you love me too?” He asked, “Really?”

“I do, Drew. I do love you too.” I smiled as I kissed him playfully.

Turning back around to face Nathaniel, I looked up into his dark blue eyes trying to decipher how he was feeling and how he was going to react.

I looked over my shoulder at Drew, lifting my long dark hair off my back. “Could you undo my bra please?”

Nathaniel’s jaw dropped as he stood there like a statue. Drew unhooked my bra while I stared into Nathaniel’s smoky eyes. Drew removed my bra and curled up behind me pressing his body against mine. He reached around and cupped my breasts, kneading them, caressing them, while Nathaniel watched. My nipples grew taut as desire and need coursed through me. I could see Nathaniel was aroused, the length of his cock strained at the denim encasing him.

I reached up and kissed Nathaniel, pushing my tongue between his lips, encouraging him to return my passion. At first, he didn’t move, just continued to stand before me frozen in place. Then, finally, he began to return my kiss. First with hesitation, then after a glance over my shoulder at Drew, he put everything he had into it, showing me his passion, his desire, his fear. I drank it all in, letting it flow over me, through me.

Nathaniel’s hands settled on my hips then moved on to roam my body, exploring my bare skin. My hands found their way to Nathaniel’s zipper freeing his shaft from its tight denim constraints. Nathaniel groaned softly into my mouth when I wrapped my hand around him, gently moving up and down the long length of him.

Drew had stopped fondling my breasts and made his way down my backside. He removed my panties and tossed them into the pile with the rest of my clothing. His lips kissed designs down my back. I quivered when he moved lower.  Little shivers of pleasure soared through me as he nibbled and licked various spots on my backside.

Drew pushed my thighs apart so he could move between them to caress my red hot core. A finger parted my folds, and he slid right into my desire slick center. I moaned, stroking Nathaniel’s cock while Drew’s finger thrust in and out of me.

Almost on the verge of orgasm, I realized I was completely naked between two men who were both still fully clothed. “Get naked,” I commanded them. It was a power trip to feel so sexy and so in control. It was such a rush. Combined with the two gorgeous men shedding their clothes in front of me, wicked witches on wheels, I was experiencing a high like no other.

I reveled in the beauty of the naked man flesh moving before my eyes. Taut muscle moved under firm flesh. It was the epitome of masculine beauty. Drew was pale and leanly muscled where Nathaniel was tan and bulkier. Drew was built like a martial artist while Nathaniel was much brawnier, built more like a construction worker or street brawler. Nathaniel’s eyes were a smoky, liquid blue, heavy lidded with desire, while Drew’s were wide, glimmering with hot green fire.

Once they were both completely naked, they looked each other up and down, sizing up the competition I suppose. Then, they looked back to me for approval.

Oh, approve I did. I licked my lips as I admired the view. Both were quite well endowed at about nine inches long. Drew’s cock gleamed like pale marble, while Nathaniel’s staff pulsed like red hot steel.

My body hummed with sexual anticipation and the steady static of magick.

I smiled and held out my hands in invitation. They both came to me, one on each side. Before I knew it, hands were everywhere. I couldn’t keep track of whose hands were on what body part as I was being kissed, caressed, licked and sucked. I closed my eyes so I could enjoy the sensation of a mouth on my breast while another mouth kissed its way down my neck to the other breast.

The pleasure went directly from my nipples to my aching pussy. I was hotter than I’d ever been in my life. I opened my eyes and took in the sight of two gorgeous men suckling at my breasts.

My knees gave out, and I started to crumple to the floor. Thankfully, they caught me before I fell. Entwined in a tangle of limbs, we crashed gently to the floor with me sprawled on top.

I sat up to get a good look at both men on their backs under me. Wow. Never in a million years would I have imagined a witch like me with two gorgeous men like them. It was fantasy fulfillment beyond my wildest imagination.

I shook my head in disbelief and to put myself back in the moment.

You definitely write them hot, woman.

My very favorite paranormal are weres - love wolves, but I'd go for a cougar, lion, dragon, etc. AND, vampires come in at a close second. I love the mystery behind their kind, their abilities and their fascinating long life...besides the beastly, brute strength they all seem to wear so well. LOL

Enjoy your day Roxanne, and's Friday!!
