Author Thursday: Interview with Kishan Paul

Today's guest is Samhain author Kishan Paul, and she's talking about her recent release Blind Love.

1. What flavor is your writing?

Blind Love has a sprinkle of suspense but more than anything, it’s a sweet, fun romance.

2. If this book was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

Ha! Now that would be fun. I’d love for someone like Stephen Amell to play Gabe and Jessica Alba to play Lauren.

3. What is your favorite scene in Blind Love?

My favorite scene in Blind Love is one of the bedroom scenes between Lauren and Gabe. She’s trying to get dressed, and he’s wanting to get her back in bed. Seeing her from his eyes, and the things he did to try and convince her to stay, were funny and sexy all at the same time. They totally had me giggling and shaking my head as I wrote them.

#AReBlast One Day Sale!

Today only ARe is holding a 25% off sale for hundreds of titles, including my new release The Sephra's Tear.

The Sephra's Tear will be on a month-long blog tour in July (more details about tour stops soon) and I'll be giving away a $25 Amazon gift card at the end of the tour. And if you sign up for my newsletter you'll get a special coupon code and an exclusive excerpt in the next issue. Fun stuff. ;)

For now, here's the blurb:

Just one spell will change their fates…

Cordelia is a pawn of House Dorchada—a notorious noble family comprised of thieves, assassins and dark wizards. Desperate to avoid their poisonous politics, Cordelia plotted her escape for years, but her carefully laid plans are jeopardized when her father commands her to marry an aged lord of Frostever.

With only a few short months left before her wedding, Cordelia’s salvation hinges on creating a Sephra’s Tear—a forbidden amulet that causes overwhelming lust in its victim. A black market buyer promises a life-changing amount of coin as payment for the Tear, but being caught creating it carries a death sentence.

Two wizards are needed to produce the passion to fuel the erotic spell, so Cordelia recruits the aid of peasant wizard Nathaniel Ravenwood. Nathaniel has long denied his desire for the beautiful Cordelia. As a noblewoman and a Dorchada she is as dangerous to Nathaniel as a viper, but the fortune she offers is a temptation he can't refuse.

Dealing in dark magic comes with a price, and Cordelia and Nathaniel risk losing their freedom—and their hearts. Their fates depend on the one spell that will free them, or destroy them.

Author Thursday: Interview with Elizabeth Harmon

I'm super excited to have Elizabeth Harmon back as my guest today! In case you missed it, I LOVED the hero in Pairing Off, and I'm looking forward to reading Turning it On.

So without further ago, here's Elizabeth!

Hi everyone! I’m excited to be back on Robyn’s Author Thursday, sharing news about my upcoming release, “Turning It On,” which comes out June 29. It’s the second book in my Carina Press Red Hot Russians series, and like my debut novel “Pairing Off,” “Turning It On” features a sweet and sexy Russian hero, and adds a new element- Reality TV.

1. What flavor is your writing?

If I had to choose something edible (or drinkable) to describe my writing, I’d choose a medium-bodied red wine, like a merlot. Something a bit lighter than other reds, with dark and tangy flavors to balance out the sweetness.

Author Thursday: Interview with Blythe Gifford

My guest today is the super fabulous Blythe Gifford, and she's talking about her new release Whispers at Court.

First, I think we all need to pause and take a moment to appreciate this gorgeous cover:
Soooooo pretty. The details! The tiny flowers! THE DRESS, PEOPLE! Love it.

You may now proceed with our regularly scheduled interview. ;)

1. What flavor is your writing?

Flavor? What an interesting question! Perhaps dark chocolate. Complex, rich, and not too sweet. Maybe with a hint of salt. (Since I write medieval romance, this is not historically accurate, but tasty, nevertheless.)

2. If this book were made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

In this case, I really did use an actress as inspiration for Lady Cecily: Olivia Wilde. There was a particular shot of her in a fashion magazine that emphasized her wide eyes and square jaw. Lovely and strong. For the hero, I didn’t use an actor, but adapted the look of Nacho Figueras, a polo player from Argentina, who’s the face of the Ralph Lauren Polo fragrance ads. I made my hero fair instead of dark, but kept the strong cheekbones and the rogue curls.
