Alexis: Seeing as I’m a redhead, I’m all for that! First, let’s talk about your short, His Magick Touch. What is this story about?
Here’s the blurb:
Sorcha’s husband is easily the meanest cur alive. He blamed her for every misfortune that befell his clan since he took her to wife four years past. And now the bastard is determined to kill her. If she were half the witch he accused her of being, then she might possess the power to save herself, but Da had ousted her grandmum from the clan before she taught Sorcha the Pagan ways. She is certain of only one thing—if she lives long enough to become a widow, she will never take another husband.
Will Keiran’s gentle touch crush the last of her resistance? Or will Sorcha’s husband hunt her down and kill her before she discovers the depth of Keiran’s love?

Alexis: So there is some kind of magic involved in this story. How did you decide on what kind of magic would be possible?
Kim: I like writing a little paranormal into my stories and I have done a lot of research on the life-styles of the Christo-Pagans. I find it very interesting as well as entertaining. I also like to incorporate animals into my stories, so I made the hero capable of seeing through his falcon’s eyes. Fun, huh?!
Alexis: That is very cool. What a great idea! I know you are also published by Ellora’s Cave which is known for very hot erotic books. But this book is not an Ellora's Cave, so how hot would you rate His Magic Touch?
Kim: Compared to my EC releases??? Um, well on a scale of 1-10, I would rate His Magick Touch about a 6, whereas Educating Aphrodite is a 12. *grin*
Alexis: Ah, that puts it into perspective. But now you have me curious. Can you tell us a little about Educating Aphrodite?
Kim: Well, it’s a Victorian Ménage a Quatre! *gasp*
The blurb says it best:
Two years is too bloody long to be abstinent, especially when one is married to the insatiable Sebastian Falkner, Earl of Warwick.
Countess Alexandra Falkner is desperate to get her husband back in her bed, including performing in the risqué production of Educating Aphrodite. She knows Sebastian will choose the masked woman who performs in the finale with him and his best friend, sexy theatre manager and hypnotist, Vincent Delacroix, and she intends to be the temptress who catches his eye. Unfortunately, she lacks the confidence and experience she needs to have sex with two men in front of an audience. She solicits Delacroix’s skills as a hypnotist to empower her. What she gets is an education in seduction that leads her heart astray.
Will she lose sight of her goal in Delacroix’s arms?
Or dare she risk everything to keep them both…?

Alexis: What an interesting premise you have for this book. Was the idea of a sexual play all yours, or did you find historical support for this type of activity during this era?
Kim: I figure there were all kinds of naughty little things going on that Jane Austin neglected to tell us about. Based on some of the erotic fiction I’ve read published in this time period, I would say they had their share of fun.
Alexis: I'm sure they did. What would you say are your favorite character traits of Sebastian, Alexandra and Vincent?
Kim: Sebastian is gentle and loving. Alexandra knows what she wants and she isn’t afraid to go after it. And Vincent is simply wicked. I would have to say I like him the most as he is the one teaching Alexandra how to win her husband’s attention back. And he is quite a teacher.
Alexis: Having a good teacher is always important ;-) What can we expect next from you? Do you have any new releases coming or a work in progress?
Kim: I actually have another short coming out in February. Taming a Highland Devil is an erotic Scottish novella. The cover alone should hook you on this story. It’s just stunning! This story releases February 9th in ebook from Ellora’s Cave.
Both of my erotic releases are finalists in one of RWA’s most prestigious contests, The Emily. I can hardly wait for these characters to meet the world!
