Got Erotic Romance: The Upgrade by Eve Summers

Got Erotic Romance: The Upgrade by Eve Summers: "Ms Summers pens a great, very short, erotic escape in this story. I knew going into this book that it was short, but even still when THE END came I was shocked...."

The Spotlight Is On....

The spotlight today is on a fellow Red Rose Publishing author, Carol Preflatish

Love, Lies, Deceit

Yvonne: Carol, please tell us about your book and its main theme.
Carol: "Love, Lies & Deceit" is about international espionage, with a hint of romance between two CIA operatives; one a rookie, the other her training officer.

Yvonne: What makes the hero somebody you'd like to meet? 
Carol: I've had so many readers tell me that they love Jason Reid because of his sweet, but determined personality, his patriotism, and his commitment to Julie McBride, his trainee. 

Yvonne: How does the heroine change throughout the book? 
Carol: Julie starts out as a rookie CIA officer who is just a little unsure of herself, but in the end she shows that her confidence in herself has increased 100% by doing what she can to help save Jason's life and career, while risking her own.

Yvonne: If the book were made into a movie, who should play the heroine? 
Carol: It's kind of a toss-up between Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Kidman, but I sort of lean toward Kirsten Dunst. 

Yvonne: Tell us something about the book's setting. 
Carol: My book has a lot of international travel starting out in Washington, DC, then to Austria, before going on to New York City, and then ending up in Paris, France before coming back to Washington.

Welcome Erotic Writer Jennifer Jakes!

Q: Who are you as an author? 
A: As an author, I'm a very "pulled-together" woman who writes erotic western romance. 

Q: Who are you at home? 
A: At home, I'm a crazed wife and mother wondering if I remembered to thaw something out for dinner and wondering if I can steal 15 minutes to write. LOL

Q: Who is your favorite heroine you've ever written? 
A: Well, RAFE'S REDEMPTION is my debut novel and the novel of my heart, so of course I love MAGGIE, but that being said, I'm working on a novella and another full length novel and I think Nora from ALASKAN HEAT is my favorite.

Q: Who would play her in a movie? 
A: Nicole Kidman (with her curly red hair).

Q: Who is her hero? 
A: Alex O'Loughlin (McGarrett from Hawaii 5-0)

Q: What kind of research do you do for your books? 
Well, my family and I are American Civil War re-enactors. So the time I spend encamped is fantastic research. And I read a lot about the time period, everything from how many days did it take to do laundry, to how much a prostitute of the time would have charged.

Q: Do reviews and fans' comments shape the way you write? 
A: Oh, yes! I can't think of a nicer compliment than for someone who doesn't have to tell me they like my work (i.e.: my mom) tell me why they enjoyed the book or a particular section of a story:) 

Q: Please tell our readers how to find you.
A: Here are the links to my website and my publisher.

Q: Share the blurb for RAFE'S REDEMPTION?

He rode into town to buy supplies, not a woman.
For hunted recluse Rafe McBride, the raven-haired beauty on the auction block  is exactly what he doesn't need. A dependent woman will be another clue his vengeful stepbrother can use to find and kill him. But Rafe's conscience won't let him leave another innocent's virginity to the riff-raff bidding. He buys her, promising to return her to St. Louis untouched. He only prays the impending blizzard holds off before her sultry beauty breaks his willpower.
She wanted freedom, not a lover.
Whisked to the auction block by her devious, gambling cousin, and then sold into the arms of a gorgeous stranger, outspoken artist Maggie Monroe isn't about to go meekly. Especially when the rugged mountain man looks like sin and danger rolled into one. But a blizzard and temptation thrust them together, and Maggie yearns to explore her smoldering passion for Rafe.
But when the snow clears, will the danger and secrets that surround Rafe and Maggie tear them apart?
