Tempted is due out this week and I think the cover speaks for itself! Lots of yummy men, Sexual tension, action and emotions are packed into this new release and I really enjoyed reading it!
Read the interview and then make sure you enter the contest! Elisabeth is giving away THREE books!!!
Amber - Welcome back to Amberkatze's Book Blog! It is great to have you here as a guest! Tempted your third book in the Eternal Guardians Series is due out. What can you tell us about your upcoming release?
Elisabeth - Thanks so much for having me here! I'm thrilled to share about the third book in my Eternal Guardians Series - TEMPTED!
DEMETRIUS—He’s the hulking, brooding warrior his fellow Guardians avoid. Too dark. Too damaged. And given his heritage, he knows it’s best to keep everyone at arm’s length.
Isadora is missing. The words pounded through his head like a frantic drumbeat. For her own protection, Demetrius had done all he could to avoid the fragile princess, his soul mate. And now she was gone—kidnapped. To get her back, he’ll have to go to the black place in his soul he’s always shunned. As daemons ravage the human realm and his loyalty to the Guardians is put to the ultimate test, Demetrius realizes that Isadora is stronger than anyone thought. And finally letting her into his heart may be the only way to save them both.
Read an excerpt!!!
Elisabeth - So far, no. I tend to write in different points of view in every book, so I get to know the recurring characters pretty well before starting the next book. Zander had scenes in MARKED and Demetrius had scenes in both the first two books, so moving to both of their POVs wasn't too much of a stretch. Getting Demetrius to open up and lose the chip secured firmly to his shoulder was definitely the hardest part of writing TEMPTED though.
Amber - The Eternal Guardians are seven warriors and that means each warrior will get one book? or will the series continue once each warrior has had his turn?
Elisabeth - The short answer is...I hope! The series has the potential to go beyond seven books. There are several secondary characters instrumental to the series - Nick, Orpheus, Max...just to name a few – who could easily have their own books. As long as readers keep buying the books and asking for more, I'll keep writing.
Amber - When are the rest of the books in the series due out? Are you working on anything else you would like to tell us about?
Elisabeth - I just finished ENRAPTURED (book 4), which will release in April 2012 and I'm starting work on book 5 (which needs a title!). Book five is scheduled to release in the fall of 2012.
Elisabeth - Oh, I wish. Wouldn't that be something? So far, though, no. If my publisher is reading, however...I wouldn’t object to being in on the photo shoots!
Amber - What made you want to be a writer? Were there any books or authors that had an influence on you?
Elisabeth - I've always loved to read but I didn't get hooked on romance until I was in college and read (not watched) Gone with the Wind. In my heart I knew a sweeping romance like that HAD to end well, so after making up my own happy ending, I went looking for other romance books. I found them, and a love for a genre I didn't know existed. After that I devoured romance and fell in love with authors like Judith McNaught, Elizabeth Lowell and Susan Elizabeth Phillips. But it wasn't until I took a leave of absence from my teaching job that I actually had the time to try my own hand and writing. Once I did, I found something I loved MORE than reading, and I've been doing that ever since.
Elisabeth – Yes. Actually, Juliana Stone and I are working on a sexy paranormal romantic suspense proposal right now and hope to start shopping it soon. It’s a little bit sci-fi, a little bit X-files, and a whole lotta romance.
Amber - A lot of authors are writing now in both adult and YA genres. Have you considered writing a YA book?
Elisabeth - My daughter (she's 12) is DYING for me to write a YA that she can read. She hears me talk about my Eternal Guardians all the time and really wants to read them, but she's too young yet. So far I haven't come up with a YA idea that's grabbed hold of me but I'll never say never.
Amber - You have written other books, not paranormal. I am just kind of wondering, is there any genre you have not tried that you would like to?
Amber - I am a happy Kindle owner! Do you have an e-reader yourself? What are your views on E-books?
Elisabeth - Yep, I've got a Nook and love it. The e-book market has really boomed the last few years and I'm excited that readers can get my books so quickly. Personally, I'll always be a fan of paper books (I love to read in the bath tub) but with brick and mortar stores becoming few and farther between, e-books will only continue to increase in sales.
Amber - What have you been reading and watching lately?
Elisabeth - I'm not a big TV viewer. Evenings are writing times for me so I tend to miss out on all the exciting new shows. I do have a couple of favorites though - Rescue Me, Friday Night Lights (both of which are ending this year - *sob*) and X-Files (I can't pass it up on cable when I see a rerun). As for books, I've recently discovered Catherine Mann's romantic suspense novels, I'm always a sucker for a Susan Elizabeth Phillips novel, and I'm in love with Joan Swan's new firefighter paranormal series coming from Kensington books Spring of 2012.
Elisabeth - Lord of the Rings. I absolutely love the entire trilogy and can (and do) watch it all the time.
Amber - If you could be any famous person, alive or dead, who would you be? and why?
Elisabeth - Hm...this is a tough question! Does it have to be a real person? If not, I'd choose Scarlett O'Hara and make that girl shape up so she can have her Happily Ever After!
