My kind of hot hunk for Friday!

I can't wait to read this one, lol.

Riya's divorce .gift to herself is to rescue a dog. Riya and Bad Larry meet and instantly bond over their mutual hatred of men. She promises Bad Larry that she will never let anyone hurt him again if he promises not to let her bring home any men in a moment of hormonal weakness. The plan works perfectly...almost too perfectly, as she's met a sexy detective that is 2/3 of the way to being a superhero. Lucky for Riya, Jaden isn't giving up, despite her warnings of owning a man hating dog. Jaden's got his work cut out for him. He not only has to impress the divorcee but her twelve pound bodyguard as well.

Nice for Hump Wednesday!

Walking out of her job was the best thing Nikki Plummer ever did. What she didn't expect however, was to be tracked down by some hot bod, claiming she owed him.
Ruari Cameron has come to collect what he has paid for, but one look at Nikki, and there's only one thing he wants. Her in every facet of his life.
Of course convincing Nikki of this might take some doing...but he's more than ready to rise to the occasion.
Will they find their happy ever after under the Barbados sun?

A multi-published, best selling author of erotic romance, Raven lives in Scotland, along with her husband, in a house much too big for them—their children having flown the nest—surrounded by beautiful scenery, which inspires a lot of the settings in her books.
She is used to sharing her life with the occasional deer, red squirrel, and lost tourist, to say nothing of the scourge of Scotland—the midge. As once she is writing she is oblivious to everything else, her lovely long-suffering husband is learning to love the dust bunnies, work the Aga, and be on stand-by with a glass of wine.

Now here's a hot hunk for Friday - Jack the Stripper!!

Jack the Stripper *

Welcome to The Purple Dee. Pull up a chair and get settled in, the show will start soon! 

Our featured performer tonight is Jack the Stripper. He's Jack Severn, newly back from the dead. He's magical, he's hot, but evil he's not!
Jim Ling-Li, Necromancer extraordinaire, brought him back to life, gave him some extra features, and, as you'll see, made him irresistible --
Especially to Jack's ex-girlfriend Brianna. Jack's sexier than ever, and they're better together. But she doesn't want to risk her heart, not again, and definitely not with a zombie.

Jack also has a mission. He's back to catch the Heart Taker, the mutant that's been terrifying human and undead alike. His current obsession's none other than Jack's Brianna.
So give a big hand for Jack...he's going to need all the support he can get to catch his own murderer.

*Jack the Stripper was originally published by Loose Id as "Zombie Jack". It has been re-edited and re-issued by Evernight Publishing

The next in the Risso family series!

Straight-laced Cole Risso has longed for his sister’s bohemian best friend Gwen since he first laid eyes on her as a kid. Now, as future patriarch of the Risso Family, he’s expected to marry well. A free spirit and unconventional daughter of a pot-toking hippie hardly qualifies. 
When one night of giving into temptation ruins them both for any other, Cole and Gwen are faced with a decision - love the other enough to let them go, or defy family expectations and fight for their hearts’ desires.  No matter the decision, their choices have the power to destroy all they hold dear.

Monday's Scintillating Interview with Nena Duran!!

Welcome to Craving Erotic Romance Blogspot’s Scintillating Monday Interview.

Today we’re presenting Author: Nena Duran!
1)      Have you always wanted to be an author? Yes, since I was a little girl and read my first Grimm Fairy Tales. I was transported to all this magnificent places with amazing characters. Later in junior high I discovered Corin Tellado Secretos del Corazon. She was Spain’s version of Barbara Cartland. I was a teen full of hormones and no one around me compared to the guys I met through those stories. Talking about setting high standards!! (A little side note: I went to Amazon and found Corin Tellado there!!) But the bug really bit me after reading H.G. Wells Time Machine. I can say that this was the turning point for me. After that, nothing but Sci-fi would satisfy my hunger…until I found Sci-fi romance/erotica!!!
2) What genre(s) do you write? I write Sci-fi (erotica) and Supernatural (erotica).
3)  Have you ever self published? No, but I’m considering the possibility.
4) Who or what inspired you to write your first book? My love of everything Sci-fi especially shows like Star Trek, Stargate, Firefly and Farscape. I wanted to be able to create my own corner of the universe where the fantastical met science. My journey through the twin galaxies has just begun and it’s turning into a very interesting adventure. I hope more people join me as the Protectorate struggles to bring peace. In the Kataru I’ve taken Sumerian history and laced it with fantasy in a re-tale of supernatural beings torn apart by greed.
5) How many hours in a day might you write? Week days I only reread and tweak things I’ve written during the weekend. I work ten hours a day so it’s hard to come home at night and concentrate. I don’t kid when I say my brain is completely fried by the end of the day. Weekends I write for ten hours or so depending on what my hubby and I have plan for the day. He’s a very patient man! Typing fast also helps and once I’m in “the zone” things flow really fast.
6) Are you a plotter or a pantser? I’m very OCD and control freak so I like to plan ahead. I’ve created an Excel table called “Plot Developer”. Each book has a tab with the working title. They’re arranged by sequential order. The table include names, physical descriptions, affiliations, weapons, role in plot, etc. Sometimes though when I’m writing or sleeping a character speaks up and tells me no, that’s not how it happened (they like to keep secrets from me). One of the most annoying is Doyle (from the Kataru). He keeps popping up insisting I write his story.
“Hey luv when are ya gonna tell me story?” Doyle whispers in his toe curling Irish accent.
“Shut up Doyle, no jodas.” I yell back in my annoyed Puerto Rican accent.
7) Do you ever find yourself slipping away and becoming so immersed in your story it affects how you relate to others? All the time! When I’m writing I become part of the story. Sometimes I act out scenarios in my head not realizing my facial expressions are running the gamut. Coworkers often ask me if everything is okay. What can I say? I’m sad because a fictional character died inside my head? Is like been possessed by all these people and the only way to exorcised them is by writing them out of my life. A word of caution: once their story’s been told, some may linger around because they still have “unresolved issues.”
8) Are you in any of your books? Aspects of my personality are written in every character (male and female). They do and say things I’d like to sometimes. I think every author inserts themselves in their stories without even realizing it. In real life I’m very outspoken and extroverted so it helps when I’m writing about a strong female POV.
9) What do your friends and family have to say about you writing? My son and daughter love it. My son designed my logo and we’re planning to do a graphic novel based on the Protectorate Wars in the future. My daughter and son-in-law help me set up my website. They’re the ones who help me figure out the internet thingy. My husband is very supportive. A couple of close friends know about my writing and they’re also very encouraging and loving. I’m lucky that way.
10) Please share an excerpt from your book that totally spoke to you when you put the words down on paper.
From: Protectorate Wars book 2: Gigi
I called this scene “Gigi speech.” She stood in front of the entire council and passionately defended her mate. I curled into a ball and cried like a baby afterwards.
“Who the hell do you think you are to question his allegiance? My mate is an honorable warrior, not a traitor hiding in the shadows. His unselfish efforts aided the Protectorate and Pendo’rah countless times. Where were you when he sacrificed himself to save the Q’alor? Would you have taken the pain he endured without breaking, without losing your soul? It’s easy to look down on people from your high perch. You think of warriors as disposable things to throw away when they no longer work. You speak of honor and loyalty yet you condemn those who fight to keep you safe. If not for him, the Kreeh-nosh would’ve taken over my world and many more. While you dined and feasted with your loved ones, he was strapped to machines and tortured by T’zaal. While you lived in the lap of luxury, he endured pain and hunger so you wouldn’t. What gives you the freaking right to cast insults at him or my children? It’s you who has no honor, Lady Tril’cya. It’s you who desecrates your daughter’s memory. Her sacrifice is rendered meaningless by your hateful words. I’d rather die than live in a place where one is judged not by the merits of their actions but by one’s appearance. You might see him as nothing but grotesque, but that warrior you see standing before you has given more to Pendo’rah than all of you combined. Even now he stands in front of you willing to put his honor on the line for the sake of peace. My mate might not look like the warrior he once was, but his loyalty is unshakable. I’ll tell you what he isn’t. He isn’t a mindless beast programmed to serve the Kreeh-nosh. Our children aren’t unclean. They’re the fruit of deep, real love. Don’t you ever disrespect him like that again.”

11) Which actor/character(s) would play the starring roles? 
Briq/Bah-Troy –Tom Hiddleston (because no one can play the tortured hero better).
Gigi Allen- A read headed Elle Fanning (she had an ethereal quality about her that’s perfect.
