Scent of a Vampire

Aidan has searched several human lifetimes for his perfect mate. Now that he’s found her, he refuses to let go. He must make Gabrielle see they were destined to be together.

Immortal Flame

An off duty fire fighter encounters a sexy vampire in what he thought was an abandoned house.

The flames that ignite will leave them both scorched…and aching for more.

An Unexpected Evening

Samuel is a centuries-old vampire who prefers to be a recluse. He is always afraid of losing control and becoming the monster he once was. Falling in love with a young witch has pushed his boundaries and pulled him out of his comfort zone.

Katerina always encourages Samuel to be more open, to let loose, and to really "live" instead of only existing in the shadows.

One night, he finally grants her wish . . . in ways she never imagined.

Underneath the Fangs

Samuel is being framed for murder. Katerina knows he is not guilty but she has to convince Samuel that he is not a monster and that he is worthy of her love.

Cemetery Seduction

Abby, a half witch, half vampire whose powers go awry in a club, has to run, afraid that the Others, who are policing all human/magick interaction, might put her in jail. She ends up in a cemetery, jumps behind a bush and lands right on top of a very sexy ghost hunter.

No Place I'd Rather Be

Sonora is torn between a human and a vampire. How can she choose between the man who makes her feel safe and the vampire that makes her blood race? Sonora prays to the Goddess for guidance while harboring secret desires that her broody vampire, Brom, and her brawny human, Avery, can get past their jealousy and be willing to do more than just share the witch in the middle.

Can the Goddess grant Sonora's wish, or will she be stuck making an impossible choice?

Contains m/f/m and m/m

Blood, Lust and Shadows

Vampire/succubus hybrid Allana is on the prowl looking for a bloody snack and a sexy energy boost. While strutting her stuff in a dark parking lot she encounters a yummy Latino who makes a lovely meal. She also encounters something else that puts her senses into overdrive.

Complete Circle

Lissette is a vampire who has lived with her succubus girlfriend, Cassandra, for a long time. She swore off relationships with men after being viciously raped by the vampire hunters who killed the love of her life and left her for dead.

Lissette and Cassandra only use men to get what they need, blood for Lissette and sexual energy for Cassandra. They are completely satisfied with their lives- until a mysterious stranger comes along.

For the first time in centuries Lissette wants a man. Why is she so drawn to him? What is he?

Much more than a mere mortal, Gabriel has been searching for Lissette and Cassandra for a very long time. They have what he needs, what no one else can give him.

But will they be willing to share?

Contains f/m/f, f/f , and f/m/m scenes

A Package Deal

Chloe needs to get out of the city- fast. So she buys an old farmhouse out in the middle of nowhere- with one stipulation. The caretaker gets to stay. She readily agrees thinking it’s an old man that won’t give her any trouble.

Ash is definitely not what she expected.

My Demon Valentine

Elita wants to give her demon boyfriend a Valentine’s Day to remember. Connor was built for giving pleasure but Elita wants to turn the tables on that.

This time the pleasure will be all his.

Kay Dee Royal Book Review – Paranormal Pleasures II: Ten More Tales of Supernatural Seduction

Author: Roxanne Rhoads

Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance short stories

I will list the titles and give a short review of each and then an overall account of Ms. Rhoads stories.

Scent of a Vampire ~ Scents can lure, radiate heat, and fill one with needs. Aidan, an intense vampire, can make a woman do stupid things, according to Gabrielle, the woman he calls mate. Ms. Rhoads introduces (coins) a new word in this story and I love it, but won’t spoil it for you to find. This story starts the book rolling, giving an excellent idea of how sizzling hot her stories read.

Immortal Flame ~ Blake’s a volunteer fire-fighter and a construction company owner. In other words, he’s a hero…and quite the rescuer. Ask Anika…a vampire Blake finds inside a smoking house. Yummy fireworks ensue of the sexy kind. “Firefighter five-fifty-four, are you out there?” *smiles*

An Unexpected Evening ~ If you’ve read Ms. Rhoads Hex and the Single Witch, you’ll want to read this story as the characters are related to those in that novel: ) Samuel, a vampire, gets accused for a string of murders and Katrina, his witch lover, knows it isn’t her vamp reeking hell. Their relationship is major hot sex with a few issues of trust thrown in ~ let me add ~ they totally rock the bed!

Underneath the Fangs ~ More of Samuel and Katrina’s story ~ and the love scenes between them blaze to white-hot sizzling. I’d love to follow more stories of these two story-stars.

Cemetery Seduction ~ This one gives a bit of a comic relief along with an arousing romp in the cemetery…who does that? Abigail, half-witch and half-vampire, gets it on with ghost hunter, James, who may or may not be more than human. One thing for sure about these two…they have no fear and prefer a thorough sexual encounter in the serene setting of…well, you know. Another over-the-top hottie with a satisfying end and it left me wanting more stories.

No Place I’d Rather Be ~ Talk about strong sexual content, this one is a definite pleaser if you love sexy ménage à trois. The first sentence: “Could I choose between them?” I loved all of Ms. Rhoads stories, but this one tipped the scales for favorite with hunky investigator, Avery, human hotness extraordinaire, and the contender for attention, vampire Brom, and the woman between them, Sonora, a witch who wants them both. There’s a surprise in this story that totally heats up the pages! I didn’t want this story to end. Hope there’s more with these three story-stars : )

Blood, Lust, and Shadows ~ Allana, a vampire/succubus who packs an attitude of lustful power and she totes a big hungry appetite to keep sated. She gets lucky when a mysterious shadow-man shows up and fills her passionate desires. I’ve never read anything like this twist and it’s refreshing when I come across them. It’s a goody:)

Complete Circle ~ Can a succubus and vampire have a lasting relationship? Cassandra, a succubus, and Lissette, a vampire who lost her soul-mate years before, hook up and find their relationship safe and loving “enough”…until Gabriel, a vampire/incubus steps into their relationship. Excellent erotic romance with the perfect ending.

A Package Deal ~ Chloe needed to leave the city, sick of guys wanting to have sex with her and she was sick of wanting them to. She moves to the country, buys a place with a built-in caretaker, Ashton, who’s also a vampire. There are a few surprises in this one and it’s also another sexy-hot read (like all of them are). It’s also packed with deep emotion and sensual understandings. Yummy!

My Demon Valentine ~ What does a pleasure demon want on Valentine’s Day? Elita, pure-blood witch, and her significant other, Connor, a pleasure demon, are researching to find answers for family murders and something else coming…The Darkness. All of this is going on when it’s Valentine’s Day…and Elita needs to come up with something amazing for Connor. She creatively surprises him, and I’m pretty sure it will knock your socks off as another steamy read and one that perfectly closes Ms. Rhoads second Paranormal Pleasures book.

Ms Rhoads writes another sexy-hot paranormal erotic book filled with supernatural story-stars and their stories. Each unique star drew me into their story…and each relationship turned on the lights so we had an inside look at their hot sexy love scenes and their satisfying endings.

The book is a page-turner…I finished it before I was ready…so I can only hope she pops out Paranormal Pleasures III soon : ) If you like good and hot paranormal erotic romance short stories, graced with witches, vampires, succubus, incubus, demons, and ghosts, this book is a must read.

Renea Mason ~ Challenges and Writing ~ Paranormal Erotic Romance Author Guest Post



Hello everyoneJ We have a new face at my place this week ~ please welcome Renea Mason, paranormal erotic romance author of Symphony of Light and Winter, book 1 from her Symphony of Light Series.

Renea, thanks so much for being the featured author this week – your post gives us some insight into you, your life, and your writing career. Wow, hugs for working through your challenges and being such an inspiration for us all
: )

Take it away Renea Mason…

What types of challenges do you have to overcome to bring your characters to life?  

If you've ever read an interview with me, it shouldn't come as a surprise that being an author was not something I pursued, it chose me.  I'm thankful for this turn of fate, but destiny didn't bother to look to see what else I had going on. 

Managing a writing career while continuing another established career, raising two preschool-aged boys and a marriage is challenging enough, but when you throw in the management of a chronic illness, it adds another level of complication.  

In January, the ten-year anniversary of my Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis, came and went.  Over time, the management of my condition has become second nature, but since I'm forever pushing my boundaries, the annoyance, pain, and frustration always lingers.  The important thing is not to let it win.  Keep pushing forward.  I often tell my husband that slowing down is not an option--I risk learning just how bad it sucks, so I always keep insanely busy.

I still have many years in my other career, but I will continue to write stories for my readers.  I haven't yet crossed the threshold to forty yet, so it will be sometime before I'll be sitting in my pajama's pumping out the twentieth installment of Symphony of Light. But thanks to my saint of a husband, I'll keep the tidbits coming.

Even though I enjoy writing deliciously smutty stories about supernatural sex gods, I suspect that someday I'll be using all I've learned for something far greater.  Until then it's possible that I may have been handed the perfect retirement strategy for someone with limitations but lacks the ability to sit still.  Gifts often come in the strangest packages.  

What are your challenges?

Blurb

One woman. Seven men. All bound by one man’s undying devotion.

Fundraiser Linden Hill has a knack for reading people. She always knows which conversations will put a prospect at ease, which drink will loosen a patron’s lips—or his wallet, and how cleavage will make a donor sweeten the deal. She’s even foreseen her dateless weekends four hundred and sixty-four times in a row.

But ten years after watching life drain from her former mentor’s and first love’s eyes, her skills for divining the predictable are lost. When Cyril returns, he’s still gorgeous, but this time he’s beyond human, far less dead, and pissed. His lack of memory drives him to desperate acts, and his turbulent re-acquaintance with Linden pulls her into his war with a creature hell-bent on his destruction. His group of six supernatural men share a tantalizing secret, but despite the hunger, it’s love that leads her to sacrifice everything to save him…
