Sometimes it takes losing everything to find the one thing you need.

The last of his kind…

Rekkus is the last of the great Black Tiger weres and he is happy to stay that way. Working as security for the Wiccan Haus, a magical spa for inner healing, he has enough danger – and women – to keep him busy. Unfortunately, the Fates are not content with him being comfortable.

Alone and discouraged…

Dana has walked away from all she has known, her fiancé, family, apartment, and job. Now, having a ticket to the Wiccan Haus may be the only way she can move on. But what…

Meet the Owners of the Wiccan Haus Spa and Resort

Meet the Owners of the Wiccan Haus Spa and Resort




The Wiccan Haus series revolves around the Rowan Siblings.  2 Sisters and 2 Brothers who run a healing spa for Paras (what those working at The Wiccan Haus refer to the Paranormals as) and Humans (who many have no idea that Paras really exist)

The Sisters

Sarka Rowan is the Alchemist - Though her arts are more directed at the paranormal in need of potions for one reason or another, she has been known to assist the rare human. She absolutely won't create a love potion or bring someone back from the dead. Neither ever works out well. She is dark and her style is very Goth. Though not a vampire, she has been mistaken for one on more than one occasion. This pisses her off because she hates vampires with a passion, especially after having a bad relationship with one. Sexuality: unknown but believed to be bi-sexual Sage Rowan is the Herbalist - her gift is the ability to know just what herbs she needs to add to the client’s shakes, foods, c…

I am Morgan Kearns; former journalist, current author, and mother of four children to keep things interesting. I write contemporary and paranormal romance.
My second novel, IN IT TO WIN IT, is the story of Sportscaster Jane Alexander and Baseball Bad-Boy Grayson Pierce.

Tabloids love Grayson, and I’ve gotta admit I’m pretty fond of him myself.

MK: *shakes his huge hand* Hey, Grayson, it’s really good to see you.

Grayson: It’s great to see you, too, Morgan. How are things? You torturing Xavier yet?

MK: Torturing? Is that what you think I do?
Grayson: *laughs* Hell, yeah. You’re pretty sadistic.

MK: *rolls eyes* It’s a good thing you’re story’s already done.

Grayson: Seriously, you’re writing his story, right?

MK: I am. He’s an interesting guy.
Grayson: *nods* He needs a good woman who’ll love that chip off his shoulder. Do you know who she is yet.

MK: Of course. You know her, too.

Grayson: Really?

MK: *holds up hand* Before you ask; no, I won’t tell you who she is.

Grayson: Damn.

Interview with Kinnik Watkins

HOT FUN IN THE SUMMERTIME by Chicki Brown
On Kindle and Nook: http://amzn.to/dWZSxA & http://bit.ly/k4Z172

Seven very different singles – four women and three men – rent a New Jersey beach house for the summer: author Shontae Nichols, self-employed accountant and realtor, Linda Harris, Linda’s sister, hip-hop video dancer Kinnik Watkins, cosmetologist, Jovita Blassingame, Calculus professor Curtis “Doc” Whetstone, actor and drama instructor, Kip Lee, and new housemate, up and coming film actor, Devon Burke.

During their two month stay, romances bloom, friendships are tested and when a tragedy strikes one of the housemates, they all learn the answer to the age-old question: Can men and women ever be just friends?

Interview with Kinnik Watkins, the female antagonist in HOT FUN IN THE SUMMERTIME

I have been invited to Beach Haven, New Jersey to the house where Kinnik Watkins and her friends are spending the summer. To give us some privacy, we cross the beach and sit in the gazebo abou…

Interview with a Vampire with Jennifer T. Alli

Image
Interview with a Vampire.
I suppose I should tell you a little about me. My name’s Jennifer T. Alli, feel free to call me Jen J. I write paranormal romance novels and am getting quite prolific. Not anywhere near as many as Kresley Cole or Gena Showalter who I adore, but still…I have 5 books under my belt and a sixth on the way. I realised the other day that I’ve written over half a million words and I think anyone would agree that’s a lot. I’ve been writing for quite some time, initially I kept my writing private but then I discovered the internet and made everything public. The internet is awesome and I met some lovely people by posting my work online but after 3 separate cases of plagiarism I decided to start self publishing and so here I am.
I think that’s probably quite enough from me we’re here to have an interview with a vampire not listen to my ramblings. If you’ve not read anything in my Elemental Passions series then I suppose I should introduce you to Lucian. I still don’t kno…

Love Talk with Adora Smutz

Another revealing  character interview with Adora.

This week Adora interviews, Mac Caldwell, hero of Now and Forever 1, a Love Story:


Adora: So, Mac, hunky guy, how are you today?
Mac: A little annoyed, Adora. Danny Maine said he got his name in the title of his book by sleeping with Jean. Well I've been sleeping with Jean for a much longer time and I don't have my name on a book though she said she would! Adora: Really, Mac. Grow up. Jean is telling you what you want to hear, just to get at your hot body. And it is hot, I'll admit that! Mac: *blushes* Thanks, Adora. She has actually said I'm her favorite hero. Oh, don't tell Callie about Jean and me. I haven't slept with Jean since I started sleeping with Callie. Don't want to get them confused, Jean might write Callie out of the next book and I'd be a horny and frustrated guy. Not to say I don't love Callie...
Adora: Yeah, yeah Mac. We get it. You love Callie's body, be ho…

Save the HOKIE Bird

SAVE A TURKEY: GOBBLE A BOOK BLOG HOP TOUR (NOV 14-21)


Welcome to my hop!!!!!

So one of the best parts about Thanksgiving in our house is the fact that my husband is a Virgina Tech Hokie. For those of you not familiar with what a Hokie is, it's a Turkey. Now why oh Why would a school have a turkey as their mascot when they know they will be playing on Thanksgiving day?...Just sayin.
Yes when the turkey comes out or gets stuffed or any number of things that happen to the poor bird on turkey day my hubby has to hear about it. TEE HEE.
Anyway here is what I am thankful for this year. I am thankful for my family and friends. I am thankful that I still have a home in this economy. I am thankful for my fans that keep buying my books and I am thankful for the encouragement I get from so many to keep writing.

I am also thrilled to have a new release

It's a shared world series, meaning that the  setting remains the same and there are characters that will weave in and out of all the tales …

Wow I can't believe Halloween is just around the corner. Where did the month of October go?  Well for me it went to editing two books to release this year. 
Let me introduce one of my favorite heros, Rekkus the Were-Tiger. Rekkus is about as Alpha as you get and is the last of his kind, he is content working at the Wiccan Haus as the head of Security even if he looks his nose down at those in need of a spa retreat. He is serious, no nonsense, but has a soft spot in his heart for wayward teens and feels a great pull to mentor them. He is loyal to a fault and when he finds the right woman will never let her go.

Image
Welcome to my Coffin Hop Stop

Thank you for stopping by I am a writer of Erotic Romance whose first Paranormal Romance is due out 11-11-11 (I just love that date)

Alright here are my top 5 horror Movies that scarred me for life. (seriously)

#5 Arachnophobia
I know really, yes I laughed but when the Spider was in the popcorn I left the theater, And they broke the Cardinal Rule of Horror films they killed someone under the Blanket. Even Jason didn't take on the Blanket.

#4 When a Stranger Calls.
Are you kidding me I didn't ever babysit again.
Have I checked the children? HELL NO

#3 The Omen,
What isn't scary about a demonic child out to kill everyone?



#2 Jaws
Anyone who doesn't get a little creeped out in the ocean didn't see this, or like me didn't see it then fall a sleep on a water bed to be woken up screaming by a Cat jumping on the bed.



And the Number 1 is also one of my favorite, though one of the worst book adaptations ever!!!!!!!

Type A Meets the Redneck

Nopeming Shores was the first book I've ever co-authored. One of my author friends asked how I managed to do it with my Type A personality. I'll tell you.
Around the holidays last year, Andrew and I exchanged some emails about the story arc. Since I normally write erotic romances, scorching hot wouldn't fly because he's a primary grade school teacher. In fact, the book couldn't have graphic sex or language in it and still carry his name.
I wanted to overcome this obstacle and allow Andrew the opportunity to take credit for his work. I went back to thinking about the plot and retooling my writing style to suit his needs. I solicited a laundry list of g-rated swear words and phrases I could use …
