Happy Halloween! Please join me in celebrating this great holiday by welcoming two new Blog contributors to Happily Ever After Thoughts. I'm thrilled that Marie Patrick and Dawn Kunda, are joining yours truly, Alexis Walker, in writing this blog. We are so excited to be working together to make Happily Ever After Thoughts more fun, interactive, and informative for readers of Romance. To celebrate this new beginning, we are giving away a number of Halloween prizes to lucky commenters (hint: the pictures are worth a thousand words). But first, I think we need to introduce ourselves. I’ll start :-)
My name is Alexis Walker and I have been writing romance seriously for a little over three years now. I have completed three manuscripts and I’m currently shopping them to agents and editors. I’ve had some success with writing contests and have had an article published in the Romance Writer’s Report on that very topic, but no book contract . . . yet. However, I am, and always will be a reader of romance and count that occupation as one of my top five favorite pastimes. I currently teach for both the University of the Virgin Islands and Grand Canyon University. I live on the beautiful island of St. Croix in the Caribbean.
Hi Everyone! I’m Dawn Kunda, author of romantic suspense and great lover of reading, of course, romantic suspense. This is probably due to my background in the legal arena, of which I still have great interest in. I do like to read many other genres, so I will occasionally deviate from the suspense category in my reviews. I will only review books worthy of a review, also because I don’t like to pass on a negative opinion that may only be mine. I will have two opportunities a month to break away from my own writing to let you in on someone’s romance between the pages. In addition to reading, writing and reviewing, I absolutely love time spent in my backyard paradise where a multitude of flowers, trees and various plants sooth my soul simply by living or through my hard work in tending to them.
My name is Marie Patrick. I've been writing, on and off, since the age of fourteen (that's many, many moons ago) and have an unknown number of completed manuscripts under my belt (some of which made really lovely bonfires). I've been a reader of romances (as well as horror and mystery and just about anything I can get my hands on) almost as long as I've wanted to be a writer. My day job is as a Provider Services Representative for a health insurance company, which really keeps me on my toes, but my real love, my real passion, is writing, which I would love to turn into a career. I have published one novel and I'm seriously trying to contract more. I am married with one son. Transplants from New Jersey, my husband and I live in sunny, hot Arizona, along with our three furry four-legged daughters.
Dawn, Marie and I will be contributing different topics to Happily Ever After Thoughts. I, Alexis, will be interviewing at least two authors a month every other Sunday or Monday depending on their schedule. Dawn will be reviewing romances every other Wednesday to help you choose the next book to add to your TBR list (To Be Read list), and Donna will continue the tradition of talking about romance novels from a reader’s perspective. If there are additional pieces of the romance puzzle you are interested in, don’t hesitate to let us know.
Okay, so now for the prizes. We have four fun prizes to give away in honor of Halloween: 1. A Jerry Seinfeld Halloween hardcover book and CD because he’s much funnier than we are. 2. Handmade glass bat earrings. These guys are adorable. 3. Goth temporary tattoos because you never know when you are going to need to fit in with a specific crowd. 4. Handmade Pumpkin Spice Soap to clean the chocolate off your hands after raiding your child’s Halloween candy.
For a chance to win, be sure to leave a comment and let us know which prizes you prefer. We will pull winners on Wednesday November 3rd. Thank you so much for joining us. We hope to see you here at Happily Ever After Thoughts again soon.

This Week our guest is Dawn Kunda who will give away a copy of her book to one lucky commenter, so be sure to leave a thought for this new author :-)
Alexis: Hi Dawn. Welcome to Happily Ever After Thoughts. Thank you so much for coming. Can you start by telling us why the switch from Private Investigator to Romance Writer?
Dawn: Thanks for inviting me to your blog, Alexis.
I chuckled when you asked this first question. It’s a huge, long story, maybe a novel someday, but I’ll try to condense it. I wanted to further my career, so I went to law school. Granted, I still worked as an investigator, but I wanted to be “in” further and be a part of civil procedures. I eventually left law school because, knowing myself, I would put 110% forward and work would be my life.
Through work and my education, I ran into so many situations that seemed like a movie or a novel that I couldn’t help but put them into words. I can stay home to do this, use my education, and still have a life.
Alexis: I bet you have run into many situations. They say truth is stranger than fiction. So this is your debut novel. I imagine you learned a lot through the publication process. Would you share something you learned?
Dawn: Two main things stand out in the process, the “editing crunch” and the marketing.
I’ve heard about the “crunch,” but I’ve never been privy to what actually happens until now. It’s an incredible experience to have a professional editor of your genre apply the “rules” of writing to your own work. I will never say that I know everything and will keep learning as I continue to write.
And Marketing. I’m still learning and ferreting out what works best. It could be a full-time job, but I’m always itching to get back to writing the next novel.
Alexis: So what is Court of Lies all about?
Dawn: I’m still excited to talk about Court of Lies, even though I’ve probably read it a hundred times through edits.
Court of Lies is about Brooke and Scott who have combined their talents, stained glass artistry and landscaping, to create a magnificent project. Another project evolves as they develop an interest in each other.
Someone isn’t happy about them interacting and tries to put a stop, or shall I say a bullet, in their way.
Evidence tampering and legal manipulations find their way into the court system during preliminary trials of the suspects of the shooting.
Who’s the “good cop” and who’s the “bad cop?” Or is it the district attorney changing the rules? Do suggestions from a psychic help or hinder the investigation?
Brooke finds it hard to trust anyone during the investigation of the shooting. This includes her ex-husband and her new love interest, Scott. They are both suspects and someone is lying.
Alexis: Wow, sounds like a real web of corruption, but your heroine and hero manage to get through it. What are your favorite character traits of Brooke and Scott?
Dawn: I adore Brooke because she does have insecurities and doubts throughout the legal process, yet she also risks her safety to dig up information that only she knows may exist.
And how could I not love Scott? He’s strong in body and mind. He risks the wrath of the law to watch over Brooke. Every man has his flaws, though. He’s a busy man, as many of us are today. Scott needs to find time for a relationship and accept that Brooke’s time with other acquaintances aren’t a threat.
Alexis: What kind of research did you have to do for this novel?
Dawn: I had a great time with the research. I interviewed a stained glass artist who described the how-to and how she comes up with ideas. If I weren’t so busy, I’d take it up as a hobby.
I also interviewed landscapers and do a lot of homemade landscaping in my own yard. I contacted legal personnel to make sure my use of the law portrayed a realistic fictional version. The fact that I worked with the law for a handful of years gave me a head start. I did peruse my legal volumes to create twists in the story because law is not as black and white as we’d like it to be.
Alexis: I know, but that might be a bonus for some cases I imagine. I understand this book is available electronically now, but it will be released in print sometime next year, correct?
Dawn: Yes, Court of Lies is in many forms for e-book readers right now. The projected paperback release is December or January. I don’t have an exact date yet, but I will announce it on my website, http://www.dawnkunda.com, when I know.
Alexis: Do you have any other romance novels in the works?
Dawn: Definitely. I’m about half-way done with my next romantic suspense, “Dirty Windows.” Briefly, it’s about a black-market baby operation with loose ends. In order to end the operation, the hero must distance himself from the heroine. Which is more important, a romance or justice? Or can there be both?
Hmmm…I don’t know exactly how I’ll answer those questions because I figure it out as I write and the characters put their two cents in, too.
Alexis: Ah, so the plot thickens :-) I understand you are going to give away a copy of Court of Lies to one lucky commenter.
Dawn: Yes, I want to give back to those willing to relay their thoughts. To know what readers want and think helps me write better stories.
Alexis: Well, that’s what this blog is all about, "thoughts." Thank you so much for visiting Happily Ever After Thoughts. We like talking about romance novels here and learning about the wonderful people who write them :-)
Dawn: Your very welcome and thank you for chatting with me:)
Alexis: Here's a quick summary: Brooke's effort to start a new career along with love is shot to pieces as her ex-husband lurks around every corner of change. A bullet changes her course and Brooke must filter the evidence in a corrupt investigation with her ex-husband and lover as suspects of the attempted murder.
And a real teaser. Check out this excerpt from Court of Lies:
“What the hell are we doing here?” Ty demanded with a slight slur.
“Calm down. I have a reason for getting you in here this quickly. It’ll work to your advantage,” District Attorney Sabin said.
“You need to get me out of here, now. I have patients to see in the morning. Their needs don’t go on hold for emergencies,” Marla’s rattled voice added.
Remaining low key, District Attorney Sabin responded, “You both know you’re on the list of suspects?” He turned his attention to Marla, didn’t wait for an answer, and continued with a severe look. “You may have to give up a couple days of work, but this will be better than a whole lot of years.”
After a minute’s delay, Marla wiped the worried look from her face and said with defiance, “Many years? You sound as if you already have it figured out that we’re responsible for this horrible shooting. Maybe I shouldn’t be here period.”
Ty followed her lead. “I don’t want to be here long, either. Considering what we’ve been through, Attorney Sabin,” he stated snidely, “What makes you think you have the right to bring me in here without payback?”
“Trust me. I know this seems backward, but it’s in your best interest.” District Attorney Sabin stood and put his papers back into a brown and tattered brief case. He shoved the steel chair underneath a rickety, matching table provided in the bleak conference room of the county jail.
Frustration replaced the smugness on Ty and Marla’s faces as the guards surrounded them to lead them back to their separate cells.
Sabin approached Ty’s escort. “Leave him behind. I need a few minutes with him yet.”
The guards left the room with Marla in tow. As their footsteps faded, Ty shot out of his seat and turned on District Attorney Sabin. “I want that piece-of-shit Marshall away from Brooke.”
“Hey, I’m working on keeping you from being committed for attempted murder. I don’t think I owe you anything else.”
“I don’t care what you think. I have your job and your life in my hands right now. There’s no limit to what you owe me for not turning your ass in.”
District Attorney Sabin scowled and shook his head. “Okay, you tell me how I’m going to keep Marshall away from Ms. Bellin. You’ve got me there.”
Ty spoke slowly, enunciating his demand. “I don’t care how you do it. Charge him for trying to kill Brooke. Then you can arrest him. If you can’t do that fast enough, put a restraining order or something on him.”
“That’s impossible. I can’t charge him right now and she has to petition for a temporary restraining order.”
Ty glared and slammed his fist on the desk. “Then fake it.”
“Can’t do that.” Sabin paused and looked over Ty’s head, thinking. “I’m not the only one dealing with the evidence for the shooting, and the only way we can get a TRO on Marshall without her consent, would be if she had a guardian and that person petitioned. Marshall doesn’t have to be charged or arrested to be served a restraining order. We just need the right person to file for it.”
“Get her a guardian then.”
“Not that easy. It would take months and a mental or physical reason to have one.”
Ty calmed before he asked, “How does a person get a guardian?”
“The purpose that would best fit Ms. Bellin is to have a court order based on a referral by a psychiatrist claiming she’s incompetent. The court would appoint a guardian. The guardian can petition that she’s an individual at risk against a certain person, Marshall for instance.” Attorney Sabin shook his head. “I don’t see it happening.”
A sly smile escaped Ty’s lessening anger. “I can do that.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, what do you think I did for the last two years when I was recovering from a stroke? I played games. Games on the computer, and not the kind that you buy at the store to download.” Ty rubbed his jaw. “Get me a pass to the computer lab, and I’ll be back in a couple hours with a form making me Brooke’s guardian.”
“Not gonna work.”
“Sure it will. I’ll get the form, scribble a psych’s name on it, and then you call in a quick favor from your buddy the judge. How long will it take to get Marshall the news?”
“If it works, which I doubt, the TRO has to be executed within one day.” Sabin’s mind began to whirl as he realized Ty was serious. If the document appeared authentic, he considered how long it would be until someone figured out the game. Wiping his hand across his forehead, he prayed that it would last long enough to convince Ty to keep his mouth shut.
“Perfect.” Ty locked stares with the district attorney. “Get Marshall away from my wife.”
Sabin adjusted his briefcase under his arm. “She’s not your wife.”

I’m happy to announce the winner of an autographed copy of SEDUCING THE SUCCUBUS by Cassie Ryan is . . . Lyndee Henderson. Congratulations, Lyndee! If you visited last week, left a comment, but didn’t win, don’t despair. I have another wonderful author coming to Happily Ever After Thoughts next week and she’s giving away a copy of her book as well.
That’s right, Dawn Kunda, Romantic Suspense writer, will be visiting us starting Sunday, October 24th. This lady used to be a Private Investigator and switched to writing romance. There has to be a story behind that decision! So join us here and leave a comment for Dawn. At the end of the week, we will draw another lucky winner.
You may wonder at my use of the term “we,” when it has only been “me” writing this blog. The reason is, I am a lucky winner too because Dawn Kunda and another writing friend of mine, Marie Patrick, have agreed to join me at Happily Ever After Thoughts to provide reviews, thoughts for readers, author interviews, and a little bit more.
This combined effort will begin on Halloween, my favorite holiday, which means, of course, that I must give away something special to celebrate this new and improved blog. Hmmm, I wonder what it will be. Be sure to check back as the three of us concoct something interesting for you to read and win!
Monday, October 11, 2010
This week I have a fantastic multi-published author visiting Happily Ever After Thoughts and she has agreed to give away a personally signed copy of her most recent book, so be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win! And don't forget to check out the excerpt below from Seducing the Succubus. You'll be very happy you did :-)
Alexis: Hi Cassie. Welcome to Happily Ever After Thoughts. Thank you so much for coming. Can you start by telling us what you like and don’t like about writing erotic romance?
Cassie: I absolutely love exploring the relationship between two characters and the blossoming romance and sexual relationship is all part of that. And I don’t have a problem writing hot, so that’s not an issue. I guess the only downside is that writing erotic romance is kind of the red-headed step child of the romance world and readers and even other writers sometimes mock my work as less-than-worthy. And let’s face it – no one wants their work to be belittled like that. I’m proud of what I write and I’m very glad so many readers enjoy reading it!
Alexis: You should be proud. You write great books! So what is your new release Seducing the Succubus about?
Cassie: Seducing the Succubus is about four succubi sisters in Hell’s Version of the Witness relocation program. There’s political intrigue among the supernaturals, there’s steamy heat and seduction, there’s action and even the beginning of the road to Armageddon :-)
Alexis: Okay, I’ll bite. What exactly is a succubus?
Cassie: A succubus is a creature who has to have sexual energy to survive. They prey on mortal men (and women) to tempt the mortal soul one way or another, which helps the humans shift their balance toward good or evil. There are varying myths out there about succubi and incubi—I took all those, layered in some of my own twists and my own brand of succubi were born!
Alexis: I'm guessing you couldn't exactly interview a succubi, so what kind of research did you do for this novel?
Cassie: I did a lot of mythology research on succubi/incubi, Lilith the succubus queen, Archangels and even some locales such as Greece. :-) I took all the facts and layered the supernatural over that to create the world in the series.
Alexis: This is quite a unique world. What prompted that first germ of an idea for you to write this story?
Cassie: I was actually watching a History Channel show on demons and they mentioned how Lilith was believed to be kicked out of the Garden of Eden along with Adam and Eve—and she’s often considered the first succubus. That made me wonder what it was like to be the “bad girl” from the beginning of time, and what kind of life she would end up leading for all of time. The world built itself out from there.
Alexis: I absolutely loved your last trio of erotic romances. How is this book different from that series?
Cassie: The Sisters of Darkness series is still very hot, but a little more mainstream than the Seduction Series. Also, this series is a bit more complex and fast paced than the last one. I had a lot of fun with my witches, and I’m having a great time with all the succubi as well!
Alexis: What are your favorite character traits of Jezebeth and Noah?
Cassie: I love that Jezebeth is both very secure in who she is, and just a little insecure—probably like most of us. She’s ancient and thinks she knows how the world works, but then Noah comes along and surprises her—which she thinks is a refreshing change. Noah is a writer, and sort of stumbled into the whole supernatural realm when he accidentally summoned Lilith. Now he’s escorting Jezebeth to pay the debt to Lilith. Even when confronted with tons of supernatural beasties and dangers, he’s still a writer and throughout the book finds himself wanting to take notes, interview the people he meets for future books and noodle over story ideas. I think there’s a little bit of every writer inside Noah, so I have a special soft spot for him.
Alexis: Hmm, I think I already have a soft spot for Noah, too. Obviously, there will be three more Succubus stories. When will the next one be out and what can we expect from Jez’s sisters?
Cassie: The Demon & The Succubus releases on April 5, 2011. In each book we’ll meet another of the sisters and the overall story arc will take us to Armageddon and beyond—with the existence of the human world at stake. :-) I hope everyone enjoys this journey through the world of the succubi!
Alexis: I know I can't wait! And if anyone has any doubts take a look at these reviews:
"Cassie Ryan's stories have it all: Smart heroines, sizzling heroes,
page-turning action, cool world-building, and best of all,near-volcanic
heat!"- Jennifer Ashley, USA Today bestselling author
"Very heart warming and entertaining. This is a great start to a new series!" Night Owl Reviews - Top Pick
"Seducing the Succubus is a promising new series with some heavy erotica overtones... If ultimate romance is your cup of tea, it will provide you with a terrific and sensual read." The Romance Studio
As Jezebeth glanced up and realized what Noah had suggested, she couldn’t help but giggle. A truck stop could very well be a Succubus Smorgasbord.
The sound of her amusement came out weaker than she’d like, but the fact that she still had enough energy to laugh gave her the freedom to wait and choose who she took sustenance from.
Noah had already made his disgust of her and her survival needs very clear back in the parking lot¾even though she could smell the musky scent of his arousal that wafted through the cab of the truck. Her skin ached with longing in response to the scent. It was too bad he felt that way because the glowing aura of nearly white energy that surrounded him like a pulsing mist looked as if it could totally heal her even with minimal contact like a deep kiss.
He was attracted, but also repulsed.
Interesting, but definitely irrelevant.
Jez had never been ashamed of what she was and what she had to do to survive. That would just be a waste of time since there was nothing she could do to change it. But for some reason, Noah’s distaste as he’d looked at the two men lying in the truck had stung. He’d risked his life to help her, and for that she found she wasn’t willing to broach the subject of taking Noah’s energy unless she was near death and didn’t have any other choice.
She was used to seeing men only as a means to an end¾survival. For the most part they were predictable, easy to manipulate and totally uninteresting. But so far Noah was a puzzle that intrigued her.
She mentally shrugged and concentrated on conserving her energy for the task ahead.
“What’s so funny?”
Even in the near darkness, she could make out his small scowl of confusion.
“You said the truck stop is a Succubus Smorgasbord if I’m willing. There’s no ‘willing’ to it. I’ll take whatever we can find at this point.” Her words were still weak, but she was glad to hear an underlying thread of strength that hadn’t been there before. Pure stubbornness might help her hold out long enough to find more energy.
When the next exit loomed, Noah took it and drove toward the large truck stop that sat on the side of the freeway--a halfway point between nowhere and nothing.
Jez tipped down the visor and checked her appearance in the tiny mirror. Dark circles rode under her hazel eyes, which looked too big for her pale face. She looked like she’d had a hard night of partying and hadn’t recovered yet.
A large sigh escaped. She’d been in worse forms and still found those willing to offer her their sustenance. She combed her fingers through her hair and used most of the rest of her energy to remove the blood from her arm and clothes until she slumped back against the seat, wishing she could just close her eyes and sleep.
Noah pulled around to the back parking lot and parked among the large semitrucks scattered in the extra-long parking spaces. He turned off the ignition and pulled out the keys before glancing toward Jezebeth. “So, how should we do this?”
“We?” She gave him her best sardonic smile. “You’ve already made it quite clear how you see my need for energy.” Her words came out more cutting than she’d intended, but she was surprised when Noah winced. But when she glanced again, his expression was haughty and unforgiving, convincing her she’d only imagined it.
“Yes, we. I promised I’d take care of you and get you back to Lilith safe and sound. You’re nearly out of energy, so the least I can do is help you . . . find some.”
Jez huffed out a breath of sarcastic amusement. “Don’t go all noble on me. I’m sure the night of hot sex with Lilith was well worth everything you’ll have to go through to pay for it.” She reached for the door handle. That was usually Lilith’s side of the equation, and got the succubus queen whatever she wanted in return.
“I didn’t have a night of hot sex with Lilith.” Noah’s words were defensive and low.
Jez popped open the door and glanced back at him. “Don’t worry, when Lilith gives her word or makes a deal, she keeps it. You’ll get your night when this is done.”
Noah frowned as he studied her. “Why would I want to be just another fuck among billions? This is my payment for not spending the night with Lilith.”
Jez frowned trying to understand the meaning behind his cryptic words. She was tempted to ask him for clarification, but she was already light-headed and needed to find energy fast. Besides, the distaste in his voice was obvious, and his words echoed through Jez’s mind like an accusation.
Why would I want to be just another fuck among billions?
She winced as anger burned through her. Who the hell was this guy to judge her and her kind? He was a mere human, and while his aura was distractingly clean and white, she was sure he hadn’t taken any vows of celibacy or morality. “Then you’ll be relieved to know that I’m a bit more discerning than my mistress. You’ll never get any type of offer from me.”
Noah snapped his mouth shut as if she’d surprised him, and she enjoyed a small surge of satisfaction as she slid out of the truck and closed the door behind her.
The cold night air hit her from all sides, stealing her breath and slowly leaching her low reserves of energy. She leaned heavily against the truck as she gathered her strength for the walk into the truck stop.
Noah cursed as he jogged around to her side. She thought she caught the words “stubborn fricking woman” within his mumbles as he stopped in front of her. “Let me help you get inside. You’re still weak.” He took her arm in his and pulled her close against his side.
His body was warm and firm, the muscles of his torso flexing against her as he moved.
Why would I want to be just another fuck among billions?
She stiffened and pulled away from him. “I’m fine. It’s time for me to go look for one billion and one, so if you’ll excuse me.”
Noah recoiled as if she’d slapped him, an expression of surprise flashing across his features.
“Miss? Do you need any help?”
Jez turned to find a tall, lanky man in his mid-forties wearing a thick flannel shirt, jeans, and boots approaching them, his keys jangled in his right hand. He had dark hair, piercing blue eyes, and a kind expression. But even more important, the hazy mist surrounding him was thick enough to call to her like a dark promise, and yet dark enough to show her that he might not take too much convincing to give her the sustenance she needed right here in the parking lot.
She didn’t look back at Noah, but instead willed her legs to hold her weight as she walked carefully forward toward the newcomer. “Actually, I could really use some help, if you don’t mind.” Jezebeth smiled up at him. “Maybe a ride?” She let her meaning show clearly in her gaze as it traveled down his body to center on the growing bulge just behind the fly of his jeans.
“Jezebeth . . .” Noah’s voice was a low warning behind her, and she ignored it, hoping he took the hint and shut up.
The man’s gaze flicked past her to Noah, and she could sense his primal protective instincts kicking into high gear. Humans were very territorial--especially about women. “Don’t worry about him,” she soothed the newcomer. “He just can’t accept that I’m not interested.”
Jezebeth could’ve sworn she felt a blast of cold air coming from Noah’s direction--an outward sign that her mark had hit home. But she knew that was only her own fancy at work. After all, he was only human.
The man held Noah’s angry gaze for a long moment before he said, “Of course, darlin’. My truck is right this way.”
“Actually, the lady is just fine.” Noah stepped forward placing his body between Jezebeth and the newcomer, wrapping a possessive arm around her waist.
Her mind sent a signal to her body to object and pull away, but her body refused to respond. Noah was warm and pulsing with energy, and before she could do anything further, he’d pulled her close, cupped her cheek in his large, warm hand and lowered his head to kiss her.
Alexis: Remember Cassie is giving away a signed copy of Seducing the Succubus to one lucky commenter, so be sure to leave a comment :-) And to find out more about Cassie and her many books, you can go to www.cassieryan.com
