She’s sure the local off-the-grid commune took her child. Law Foster has a pack to protect. Helping nosey Bianca jeopardizes his duty.

Author QA

What was the hardest part of writing this book?
I’m a mom and I work two jobs. My daughter has some health challenges that inspired what happens to Chessa, the heroine’s teenage daughter. Taking care of my family is my top priority, but my soul needs and craves the release of writing. This is my therapy. Every time I write a book, I know I am asking strangers to invest the precious leisure time they scrape out of the day and a part of his or her entertainment budget. I want to write the best book I can for that amazing person who is giving me such a big gift. Being a writer is like getting a hug from a stranger every day. I want to hug them back by crafting a story worth reading. As a reader, I take solace in the escape into a story. If the author’s work is subpar, my experience suffers. I don’t want that for my readers. I know how essential the reading experience is to the soul. I can’t do much to make the world better than I found it, but I hope my books can enhance someone’s life each day.

When did you decide to become a writer?

I’ve been an avid reader since I was eleven. The summer I turned twelve I pestered everyone to bring me to the library, but no one would. We lived in the country and it was a trek to the nearest library. My grandmother dumped a huge bag of harlequin romances at my feet and said, “There’s your library.” Looking back I’m shocked she’d corrupt me like that, but I was hooked on romance quickly. I’ve been devouring every romance novel I can get my hands on ever since. A year later I decided I could write a romance novel. Imagine The Blue Lagoon meets Star Wars, it was terrible, but my cousins loved it. They were my first fans and encouraged me to keep writing. When I was thirty I had the standard, I’m not immortal epiphany. I decided it was time to find a publisher and I did. I’ve had over sixty stories published in the last seven years, but this is my first self-published book. Anything else I’ve self-published was a reprint when my rights reverted back. What I love about writing is that I am never able to say I’ve mastered it. My prose improves with every book. I love the challenge of topping the last book. I never compete with anyone but myself.
This book is part of a series tell us about your series.

 

This is the first book in my Moonlight Series. I’ve created a small Wisconsin town where most of the residence are werewolves. I’ve combined some old Indian legends and fringe archeology to give my werewolves an interesting creation myth. In this series, if you’re bitten by a werewolf you die unless you have a werewolf ancestor on the family tree. The series highlights several couples and the struggles they have for survival and love, but Law Foster and Bianca Archer are in every book. Bianca’s awakening to the truth of Wild Rose Valley is the heart of this series. I really love these characters and I hope you do too.

Excerpt
Adeline’s point of view
“I hope you’re not taking me
into the woods to kill me,” I said, half joking. The other part of me wondered
how smart it was to be going into the woods with a man I met yesterday.
“Lucky for you, I know just
the place to leave you so no one will find you.”
I stopped walking and he
turned toward me with a sexy smirk.
“I’m kidding. The experts did
a back ground check, remember? No killer.”
I walked up next to him,
trying to keep up with his pace, but his legs were longer than mine and it
almost felt like I was running to match his stride.
I’d barely touched lunch, but
how could I after that kiss. Isaac had taken charge, kissing me in a way I’d
always wanted. So intense I felt every desire he had for me. I could sense the
anger from our first almost kiss being interrupted. The way he’d held me and
his fingers dug into my skin. No man had ever handled me the way he had and I
liked it. He’d really turned me on. Hell, I was still turned on. I didn’t want
to be on this walk in the woods, I wanted to be naked in bed with him.
“You okay?” he asked.
“Yeah, why?”
He stopped by an old pine
tree that had fallen and sat on it, patting next to him. “You sound a little
out of breath. Let’s talk.”
“We are.” I sat beside him.
“No, let’s open up and really
say how we feel. We got married yesterday and met at the altar. This could be a
real bonding experience if we share our emotions. It isn’t like we have anyone
else to contact.”
I did have Sarah. Today was
her wedding and she was probably going through all the things I was yesterday.
Isaac was right though, we only had each other, and the people who had done
this on TV, making the big bucks.
“Was my kiss too much?”
Yes, you
stole my breath away.
“No.”
“Are you sure? I can get
intense. I’m passionate and a take control kind of man in that aspect. Well,
really all aspects of life. I go after what I want.”
I remembered reading that in
his ‘about me’ paragraph. “And you don’t share.”
He chuckled. “That’s right. I
don’t.”
“The kiss was good.”
“You’re sure?”
“Yes.” The best I’d ever had.
“Do you want to kiss again?”
I nodded.
He sat straight. “Now?”
I chewed my bottom lip as he
took my chin in his hand.
“I’m worried I scare you.”
You do,
but not in the way you think.
“I don’t scare easy.”
He came toward me and I
braced myself for another one of his kisses. This time it was softer, as if he
were holding back, but I wanted what he gave me before. That kiss made my toes
curl.
“Is that what you want?” he
asked.
“No. It was too sweet.”
He tugged me into his lap so
I straddled him. This time he cupped my face in his palms and kissed me hard
again. The way I wanted. No, the way I needed. Holy shit, I almost stopped
breathing. His erection pressed into me and I ground against it, making sure to
rub just the spot I needed. He met me with his thrust. I couldn’t believe what
we were doing on top of the fallen tree, but I couldn’t stop. Anyone could
happen upon us and see us dry humping, but I didn’t care. I needed to release.
I needed him to release.
“Holy shit!” Isaac broke the
kiss and stilled me.
“What’s wrong?”
He lifted me off of him and
got up, moving away from me. Had I done something wrong? He adjusted his shorts
then bent over, taking deep breath.
“Isaac?” I stood.
He glanced at me, his eyes
dark. “Stay over there.”
My cheeks burned, almost as
if they were on fire. I’d made a fool of myself. I walked away, but he called
my name and jogged up to me.
“Where are you going?”
My eyes were wet but I tried
to hide it from him. “Away.”
“Don’t. Let’s finish our
walk. Come on.”
“I’m really not in the mood
to walk anymore.”
He brushed his fingers across
my cheeks. “You did nothing wrong. In fact, you did so good I almost lost
control.”

Artist Sarah Sculley – IndieLove Magazine Article

NYT bestselling Author Nashoda Rose Interview with IndieLove Magazine

When was it that you decided that being an artist was your calling?

Yesterday. True! I graduated from the Queensland College of Art in 2002 as one of many fresh-faced graphic designers. As the years went on, the briefs came in, the changes, and changes, and late nights, and more changes, and the all-nighters, more changes and then having my creative ideas smooshed, I decided that maybe being a graphic designer was a bit soul destroying. So I painted and created as an outlet.

I showed my work when I lived in China and had sell-out shows. When I moved home to Brisbane I thought I had to become a grown-up. Buy a house, settle down, procreate – all those picket-fence, 2.5 kids ideals. Silly me. I worked my tail off as a designer for a company that ended up making me redundant, one week before I was due back from maternity leave. It was an amazing blessing. It gave me the time, creativity and freedom to put everything I had into a solo show at Jugglers earlier this year. In my eyes, it was a massive success. I am entirely proud.

Since that show I’ve had so many opportunities become available for me to truly do what I believe is my calling – art. Yesterday was the first spare second I’ve had to sit down and think ‘oh my, everything is falling into place. I’m entirely happy, grateful and I feel like the real me. The universe is working with me and right here and now is where I am meant to be.’ This is that happiness that everyone has been talking about! Huh!

Dirty Boxing by A.K. Layton

She was resistant, but he was insistent. A heart isn’t safe when you fight dirty.

Leena Clark is independent, fierce, and most importantly, always in control. As an event planner those are excellent qualities to have. Carrying those into a personal life doesn’t translate well, but that isn’t something that concerns her. She’s content living blissfully in her spinsterhood. However, when temptation and foolish curiosity clash, she allows the one man she shouldn’t to get close to her. After insisting it was a mistake, she finds herself relying on the fighter for help out of a difficult situation. But his help comes with a price.

Gavril Alenin has been waiting for the opportunity to get close to the beautiful, self-assured, and guarded Leena, and her moment of weakness is his chance to fight for the future he wants. Now in his fifteenth year as a professional MMA fighter, he’s ready to get out of the game, but not without a very specific plan: fight for the title one last time, then settle down with the reluctant Leena. But when he finally gets close to the girl of his dreams, everything else in his world falls apart.

When life turns their world on its head they have to decide if what they have is worth the fight, or will they lose it all because of fears and broken dreams?

Former police detective-turned-investigator for the D.A. Gage Juliano has two goals: salvaging his career and nabbing Lantano Valley’s present-day Robin Hood. But when he meets a beautiful, curvaceous woman who’s more interested in helping others than amassing a fortune like the rest of the town’s residents, Gage finds his desires pulled in an unexpected direction…

The hard-as-MediaKit_BookCover_HereComesTroublenails business woman is determined to bring down corruption among Lantano Valley’s rich and powerful.

Malcolm spent five long years away after his father publicly blamed him for some shady business dealings. Now he’s back to exact some revenge. Reconnecting with Sheila was never part of the plan, but the second he sees her, there’s no way he can resist…

Sheila and Malcolm quickly fall into the sizzling passion between them, but Malcolm has no intention of staying once he’s finished with his father–even if leaving Sheila again might be more than he can bear.
