I am pleased to introduce you to a sultry author by the name of Roxanne Rhoads. Some of you know her from her blog, Fang-tastic Books. Eternal Desire was released on October 7, 2009.
1. Could you start by telling us a little about your new release ETERNAL DESIRE?
RR: Eternal Desire is an erotic paranormal romance during Halloween. Here's the blurb:
Liz Beth, a paranormal researcher, is haunted by the seductive vampire, Quillon, who may or may not be real. She arrives in New Orleans the week of Halloween to search for the elusive vampire of her dreams and instead encounters a handsome stranger, Christien, with whom she begins a passionate affair with.
Soon she is torn between her dream lover and a flesh and blood man, both of whom are a mystery to her. The closer it gets to Halloween the wilder things become. LizBeth gets closer to the truth about Quillon while Christien has her under his own spell.
Will all be revealed at the Vampyre Ball or will the masks stay in place?
In New Orleans at Halloween anything is possible.
2. I've read that the book takes place in New Orleans. Did you have to do much research for this novella?
RR: Some, not a whole lot. I absolutely love New Orleans so I knew a lot about it but I grabbed a vacation guide just to get hotel names and street names correct.
The year I wrote the story all the events mentioned in the book were actually scheduled to happen in New Orleans like the Vampyre Ball.
3. What inspired you to write this story?
RR: Well I love New Orleans and vampires are my favorite paranormal creature then I tossed in my favorite holiday-Halloween and it all came together.
4. You have quite a bit of experience as an erotic romance author. Would you describe ETERNAL DESIRE as an erotic romance or another genre?
RR: I would describe ETERNAL DESIRE as an erotic romance because it's more about the story than the sex in the story and the romantic elements are high.
5. Will ETERNAL DESIRE be a stand-alone book or are you writing a series?
RR: It is a stand alone though I have plans to bring these characters back in a later book but just as minor characters.
6. Are you currently working on any other projects that you would like to share with us?
RR: I have a lot of works in progress. I also have a few upcoming stories coming out. In December INSATIABLE, a highly erotic novella, will be released through Eternal Press.
I have another vampire tale scheduled to be in an anthology through L&L Dreamspell, an erotic Christmas piece to appear in an Xcite anthology and a fun romantic vampire tale to be released through Midnight Showcase. Details and dates are currently up in the air on most of those right now.
7. ETERNAL DESIRE features a vampire. Do any other paranormal beings make an appearance in this story?
RR: Some ghosts pop in and make the Vampyre Ball very interesting.
8. What is your favorite way to unwind after a hard day of writing? Any guilty pleasures?
RR: I love watching some of my shows like Grey's Anatomy after everyone else is asleep. If I don't have anything saved on my DVR I curl up with a book to relax for awhile before going to bed.
