Novella Review: Open Flame by Lacy Danes

 

Review:

I’m not going to lie.  The main draw for me to want to read Open Flame was the cover.  I love the intensity, and was hopeful that the story would match the cover.  Does it?  While I enjoyed it quite a bit, the short length meant little character development and uneven pacing at times.  Still, this is a fun read, and I’d read more in the series without a second thought.

Character Interview–Sierra Fox from Yolanda Sfetsos’ On Pins and Needles

Please welcome a special guest today! Through the magic of the interwebz, Sierra Fox, plucky protagonist of Yolanda Sfetsos’ On Pins and Needles, has dropped in the virtual offices for a chat.  On Pins and Needles is Sierra Fox’s latest adventure, so make sure to snap up A Patch of Darkness and Split at the Seams if you haven’t already read them.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in five words or less.

[Sierra Fox] Always curious, gifted and cursed.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in the life of Sierra Fox?

[Sierra Fox] A typical day in my life includes not getting enough sleep, staying up way too late, dealing with a variety of troublesome spooks, practicing spells and incantations, trying to spend as much time alone with Papan as I can, making sure my sister doesn’t get into the same kind of trouble I manage to attract, annoying Oren, and trying to outrun the Obscurus freaks.

You know, just trying to stay alive.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Jason?

[Sierra Fox] Sexy. Kind. Loyal. Did I mention sexy? ;)

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you find most exasperating about him?

[Sierra Fox] His overprotectiveness when it comes to his wolf side. I wish he’d stop worrying about his wolf hurting me, he never will!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?

[Sierra Fox] I wouldn’t have let myself get swept up in the schoolgirl crush I had on Mace Clamber. Getting physically and personally involved with him years ago put me on a path that’s led to one troubled incident after another.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?

[Sierra Fox] Definitely can’t leave home without my trusty silver dagger.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t avoiding a premature death at the hands of demon-obsessed freaks?

[Sierra Fox] I enjoy spook catching, spending time with friends, learning new spells from Oren, hanging out with my favourite werewolf, getting to know my sister, and writing as much as I can in my grimoire. I really do try to stay away from trouble, but seem to attract it no matter what.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less.

[Sierra Fox] Normal. Happy. Working. Papan. Family.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!

[Sierra Fox] Thanks for having me.

BOOK BLURB:

All it takes is one freak to turn everything into a demonic ritual.

Sierra Fox, Book 3

Sierra Fox’s relationship with sexy werewolf Jason Papan is going great, but it doesn’t take a psychic to tell her someone’s out to get her. As usual, though, there’s too much else going on to worry about just another assassination attempt.

In addition to the demon-possessed freaks that still want her, a whole new bucket of trouble has been dumped in her path. The half-sister Sierra never knew she had isn’t a typical teenager. Willow comes with supernatural baggage that grows heavier every time someone close to her dies. And the load gets bigger every time the police find the body of another young girl.

Now Sierra’s not only dealing with the target on her own back, but the one that a power-hungry woman has painted on her poltergeist-magnet sister. As she finds herself drawn into the thick of a murder investigation, Sierra must face her deepest fears and embrace the darkest of her powers to overcome the looming threat. Or the prediction of her death might just come true.

Warning: Spook catching: never gets any easier, neither does trying to avoid being killed by a shadowy organization. Always expect the unexpected—dangerous vampires, poltergeists and demon-obsessed freaks. At least the werewolf is pleasurably safe.

ON PINS AND NEEDLES will be available from Samhain Publishing on June 18.

EXCERPT:

“Thank you.” Willow flashed a pretty smile and headed for the door. She stopped just outside, turned and said, “I’m really glad I found you. I’ve always wanted a sister and you’re even better than I imagined.”

I smiled back and felt a warm glow inside. She might come with a few otherworldly problems, but who didn’t have some kind of baggage nowadays? “I’ll see you tomorrow, Willow.”

She strolled out the door and I turned back to my office.

After picking up the folders and stacking them where they belonged, I decided there was no way I would get any work done now. Besides, it was almost time to meet Papan in the city.

I shut the window, put on my mostly-dry jacket and made sure my dagger was still secured between sock and boot. I loaded up with keys, wallet, and phone before heading for the door, wishing Oren would hurry up and teach me the incantation to make my pockets deeper than they really were.

After closing the door behind me, I made sure it was locked before rushing for the stairs. I might have walked into my office in a morose mood, but I was now filled with a sense of hopeful energy.

I’d helped poltergeists before without being able to see them. I could handle this for my sister.

Wow, it feels good to say sister.

As soon as I stepped out of the building, I smacked right into someone. When strong arms wrapped tightly around my midsection, I struggled to squirm out of the vice-like grip.

Oh crap, not again!

Interview with Erin Nicholas, Author of Hitched

Please give a warm welcome to Erin Nicholas! Erin is the author of Hitched, the fourth book in the Promise Harbor Wedding continuity.  Erin is the final author to stop by to chat about this Samhain series, so please enjoy, and don’t forget to check out the links after the interview so you can order a copy of all four books for yourself!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Erin Nicholas] Wife, mom, romance writer, wine lover, dark chocolate connoisseur, coffeeaholic, sarcastic, bossy Princess

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Hitched?

[Erin Nicholas] I’d love to! Hitched is the fourth book (of four) in the Promise Harbor Wedding series. The series starts at a wedding that goes all wrong and follows the members of the wedding party from that point. Book one is the jilted groom’s story, book two tells us what happens when the Maid of Honor disappears, the Best Man gets into trouble in book three and then book four is the bride’s story. The run-away bride’s story to be specific!

Gavin Montgomery is the hero of book four. He arrives in Promise Harbor just before the woman he loves says I do to someone else. He can’t let Allie get married without telling her that he’s still in love with her and the only chance he has is, well, in the middle of the ceremony.

From there they’re on a crazy adventure to see where their hearts take them and if they can make things work this time.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Erin Nicholas] Three good friends and a glass of good wine! But seriously, our editor, Lindsey Faber at Samhain, first suggested a multi-author series with the four of us. We were all really excited, but we all had lots of other things going on and it took us awhile (2 years!) to really get a solid idea and to get going.

When we started brainstorming, we knew that we wanted a central event of some kind tying our characters and our stories together. We threw out lots of ideas, but the one that stuck and really got us all excited was a wedding. From there we each took a member of the wedding party and we were off and running!

I don’t know why, but I’ve always been intrigued by that part of the wedding ceremony where they ask “does anyone know of a reason why these two should not be wed?” I’ve always thought “what if” someone stood up and actually said “because I’m in love with her.” I eagerly volunteered to write the bride’s story, knowing that I wanted to finally use that “what if”! From there I got to create this woman, the bride, by asking things like “how did she end up the star in a wedding that she doesn’t really want?” “Who is this guy who’s interrupting the wedding?” “Why aren’t they together?” “What’s their history?” “Where has he been during this whole engagement that he’s just now showing up?” And a whole bunch of other fun questions!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Allie?

[Erin Nicholas] generous, dependable, conflicted

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Gavin had a theme song, what would it be?

[Erin Nicholas] I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by the Proclaimers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbNlMtqrYS0

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Allie is never without.

[Erin Nicholas] Her cell phone and planner

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things will you never find in Gavin’s bedroom?

[Erin Nicholas] Any other woman (or man) besides Allie, a suit and tie, anything flowery, ruffle-y or lacey

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is Allie’s greatest regret?

[Erin Nicholas] Allie is a very practical person and when she makes choices the pros and cons are carefully weighed. So I don’t think she’s really aware of any regrets, until she has some new insights thanks to Gavin. Then I think she regrets not trusting the people around her to be stronger or braver or smarter than she’s given them credit for and taking everything on by herself.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are your greatest creative influences?

[Erin Nicholas] People. I am so fortunate to know and get to be around amazing people all the time. Everyone has a story and it’s so wonderful to hear about true stories of enduring love and bravery and sacrifice and triumph. I love getting to know people and asking them about their lives and their experiences.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?

[Erin Nicholas] Coffee, a pink ballpoint pen (for notes or for longhand writing at times), and photos that act as inspiration for my characters.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?

[Erin Nicholas] Wow, that’s hard. I love to read, but don’t always have as much time as I’d like. And depending on my own deadlines there’s sometimes a big gap between a book’s release and when I actually pick it up.

Hmm… to me this would mean a book I was anxious to get back to when I had to put it down, a book that I thought about when I wasn’t reading, and characters that I can easily conjure even long after I finish it. One book that comes to mind in recent months is High Risk, by Vivian Arend. I always love Viv’s writing and the whole premise in this novel, with the search and rescue team, was just really fun.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?

[Erin Nicholas] LaVyrle Spencer’s Separate Beds

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Erin Nicholas] Hang out with my family, read, movies, lunch with girlfriends

About the book:

And she thought the bridesmaids dresses were her biggest problem…

Promise Harbor Wedding, Book 4

Allison Ralston would rather be anywhere other than this wedding. Even ifthe wedding is hers. Especially since the wedding is hers.
But Allie’s determined to restore her family’s happiness, and if tying the knot with longtime family friend Josh Brewster is the way to do it, then she’ll walk down that aisle, toss that bouquet and drink that champagne. Oh, she’ll definitely drink the champagne.

There’s only one thing that could get Gavin Montgomery back to Promise Harbor. And she’s about to say I do to another man. Now he’s back to claim what’s his—even if he has to do it in the middle of her wedding.
Allie is shocked—and okay, a little turned on—when Gavin literally sweeps her off her feet. Safe in his arms, she succumbs to fatigue, stress, and yes, the champagne, only to wake up in his bed. In Alaska.

Now that he’s put four thousand miles between Allie and all her responsibilities, Gavin’s determined to show her that they can make a life together. If he has his way, the next wedding Allie will be planning will be theirs.

Warning: Contains a guy so in love he’s willing to break up the wedding of the season, a bride who just needs to get to, well, anywhere else, and enough hot sex to take them from New England to Alaska and back again

Interview with Meg Benjamin, Author of Bolted

Please welcome Meg Benjamin to the virtual offices today! Meg is here to tell us about Bolted, the second book in the Promise Harbor Wedding continuity. 

[Manga Maniac Café] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Meg Benjamin] I’m a late-blooming romance author, specializing in contemporary and paranormal with a bit of comedy. Romance on Wry, that’s me.

[Manga Maniac Café] Can you tell us a little about Bolted?

[Meg Benjamin] Bolted is the second book in the Promise Harbor Wedding quartet, four books (Jilted, Bolted, Busted, Hitched) by four different authors (Kelly Jamieson, me, Sydney Somers, Erin Nicholas). All four start with the same disastrous wedding ceremony, with heroes and heroines who were all involved in the wedding. My heroine is the matron of honor, Greta Brewster, who’s also the groom’s sister. Greta’s got a secret: her own marriage has just ended in divorce and she doesn’t know how to tell her mother. She takes off for a few hours and ends up taking a week-long vacation at an eccentric hotel in another town. Oh, and she finds the love of her life stuck in a hole nearby.

[Manga Maniac Café] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Meg Benjamin] The four of us brainstormed the central concept of the series, the idea of the wedding that goes south when the bride absconds with her ex. Then each of us decided how our characters would be related to the wedding. I grabbed the matron of honor because I had an idea about a woman who runs away from a wedding wearing one of those awful, Gone With the Wind bridesmaid dresses.

[Manga Maniac Café] What three words best describe Greta?

[Meg Benjamin] Impulsive, Conflicted, Delicious

[Manga Maniac Café] If Hank had a theme song, what would it be?

[Meg Benjamin] Ain’t Gonna Let You Go

[Manga Maniac Café] Name one thing Greta is never without.

[Meg Benjamin] A great recipe for oatmeal cookies

[Manga Maniac Café] What three things will you never find in Hank’s glovebox?

[Meg Benjamin] A J. Crew catalog, a Dustbuster, a copy of The Pick-Up Artist

[Manga Maniac Café] What is Hank’s greatest regret?

[Meg Benjamin] That Greta didn’t arrive sooner at Hotel Grande. He put up with a lot of very bad cooking before she rescued him from his own dig.

[Manga Maniac Café] What are your greatest creative influences?

[Meg Benjamin] Writers who combine romance and comedy without losing either one: Jennifer Crusie, Loretta Chase, Susan Elizabeth Philips, and Barbara Metzger among lots of others. Plus writers who didn’t let a late start keep  them from pursuing their dreams, like my friend Desiree Holt.

[Manga Maniac Café] What three things do you need in order to write?

[Meg Benjamin] My trusty MacBook Air, my Ikea Poäng chair, a glass of something or other (wine is nice, but I can go with iced tea earlier in the day).

[Manga Maniac Café] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?

[Meg Benjamin] Tess Gerritsen’s Last To Die. Really, really spooky and intricately plotted. Not a lot of romance, though.

[Manga Maniac Café] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?

[Meg Benjamin] Probably Bambi. Don’t judge me! It was the first book I stayed up half the night to finish reading at age eight or so.

[Manga Maniac Café] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Meg Benjamin] I love to cook and I love to travel. My favorite things to do are to drive around the country, eating at good restaurants and visiting cool places like wineries and art galleries with my hubs.

[Manga Maniac Café] How can readers connect with you?

[Meg Benjamin] All kinds of ways. My Web site is http://www.MegBenjamin.com and my blog is http://megbenj1.wordpress.com/. You can follow me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/meg.benjamin1), Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/megbenjamin/), Twitter (http://twitter.com/megbenj1), Goodreads (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/2869971.Meg_Benjamin), and with my friends at Nine Naughty Novelists (http://ninenaughtynovelists.blogspot.com/).

About Bolted:

Sometimes you have to get lost before you can find yourself.

The Promise Harbor Wedding, Book 2

Greta Brewster McBain in a bind. Two, if she’s really counting. First there’s the can-barely-breathe, bridesmaid’s dress from hell. Second, the stranger who just carried her “perfect” brother’s fiancée out the church door has made it impossible to tell her own mother about her own divorce.

Rather than confirm her reputation as the family screw-up, Greta takes a drive to clear her head.

Trapped in a hole and unable to reach his cell phone, Hank Mitchell is resigned to becoming a permanent part of his own archeological dig when help arrives—in the form of a woman who looks like a Gone With The Wind refugee. Behind the ruffles and lace, though, is something he appreciates: a woman who isn’t afraid of a little dirt.

Their instant connection draws Greta into the eccentric world of the Hotel Grand, where she impulsively trades her hoopskirts for an apron. Soon things are getting hot, not only in the hotel kitchen, but in Hank’s arms…

Warning: Contains hot moonlit sex, a melancholy turtle, two wisecracking seniors, and the world’s ugliest bridesmaid dress.

Interview with Kelly Jamieson, Author of Jilted

Please welcome Kelly Jamieson to the virtual offices today!  She’s here to talk about her latest, Jilted, which is the first book in the Promise Harbor Wedding continuity.  If you have been reading the blog for long, you know how much I love these interconnected stories. 

[Manga Maniac Café] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Kelly Jamieson] Wife, mother, reader, writer. I like to read and write romance with sweet heat. Rumours about my shoe obsession are greatly exaggerated.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Jilted?

[Kelly Jamieson] Jilted is the first book in The Promise Harbor Wedding stories. All four books stand alone, but have overlapping characters, and all center around a wedding in Promise Harbor, Massachusetts. Jilted is the story of the groom (I guess you can figure out from the title what happens to him!), the next book is Bolted, which is the story of the matron of honor, then Busted, the best man’s story, and finally Hitched, the bride’s story.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Kelly Jamieson] My author-partners Erin Nicholas, Meg Benjamin and Sydney Somers and I spent hours in a chat room brainstorming ideas for the story. Right from the start, I think we had the idea that we wanted the stories to center on a specific event, but each story would go its own way, rather than a true “series” where one story would pick up where the other left off. We tossed around ideas like a funeral bringing some siblings back together, a restaurant idea, and a few other things, and ended up with the wedding. A wedding that goes all wrong. Then we each took a member of the wedding party and developed our own stories. We had to do more brainstorming around the things that were common in each book, like the location, details of the wedding, and some minor characters who appear in each book. Even as we were doing edits, I was emailing them questions like “Do Devon and Hayley know each other?” and “How long ago did Allie and Gavin break up?” There were a lot of little details we wanted to get right – hopefully we did!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Devon?

[Kelly Jamieson] Independent, smart, stubborn

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Josh had a theme song, what would it be?

[Kelly Jamieson] I’m Not Perfect, by Hedley

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Devon is never without.

[Kelly Jamieson] Her stiff upper lip. And nice shoes. Sorry, that’s two.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things will you never find in Josh’s bathroom?

[Kelly Jamieson] Josh has an awesome bathroom because he’s fixing up a big old house on the outskirts of Promise Harbor. And I’m stumped thinking of things you will never find in there, because he’s a pretty open-minded kind of guy. He prefers showers over baths, so he never had bubble bath, but since Devon likes nice long baths and smelly, girly things, he’ll buy some bubble bath and all her favorite body washes and shampoos and lotions that smell like jasmine and mandarin and sweet sugar. You might even find wine glasses in his bathroom now. Smile

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is Devon’s greatest regret?

[Kelly Jamieson] Not being honest about her feelings with the people she loves.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are your greatest creative influences?

[Kelly Jamieson] Wow, that’s a tough question. I think I’m influenced creatively by so many things – I’ve gotten little germs of story ideas from newspaper stories, advice columns, magazine articles, TV shows…
I’m a very visual person, so looking at romantic pictures on Pinterest sometimes inspires me. Music inspires me – in fact, the song “Someone Like You” by Adele was a major influence on Jilted — the idea of a woman coming back to see her ex-boyfriend marrying someone else. I’m also inspired by reading great romance stories by other authors.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?

[Kelly Jamieson] Definitely my computer – I cannot write longhand! I type very fast, almost as fast as I think. ? Internet access. And quiet – I can’t write when my family is yacking at me. Especially when I’m writing sex scenes.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?

[Kelly Jamieson] Hmmm…I’m going to say Hold ‘Em by Katie Porter. I loved all those Vegas Top Guns books, but this one was really sexy. Maybe it got me because I never thought I’d like a male submissive story, but wow, I loved Mike!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?

[Kelly Jamieson] It would be one of the Bobbsey Twins books – yes, I am that old. I devoured those books when I was about 7 or 8 years old and have been an avid reader ever since.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Kelly Jamieson] Read. Read, read, read. I also like shopping for shoes, but that’s really a rare event these days. Really.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

[Kelly Jamieson] I love hearing from readers! You can email me at info@kellyjamieson.com, or message me on Twitter, Facebook or Goodreads.

About the book:

The wedding’s off but the honeymoon is on…
The Promise Harbor Wedding, Book 1
Devon can do this. She can show up at her ex-boyfriend Josh’s wedding, even though he’s marrying her ex-best-friend. She can show everyone she’s happy with her fabulous life in Boston, her great career, her amazing shoes — and she can show everyone she’s over him.
Truth is, her life isn’t so fabulous. She’s just been downsized out of her job, her Jimmy Choos won’t pay her mortgage, and…she’s still heartbroken that Josh chose family over her. The real reason she’s enduring this wedding is that her next stop is nearby Greenbush Island, her last hope of finding a new job.
Josh knows marrying long-time friend Allie will make everyone happy after the rough time their families have been through, and since the woman he really wanted to marry chose her career and big city life over him — why not?
But the perfect wedding turns into a perfect disaster when Allie leaves him at the altar for another man. He never saw that coming! But hey, Devon’s there, offering to help him look for Allie on Greenbush Island, where he’d planned their honeymoon. Only, all they find are their old feelings for each other and a temptation to risk their hearts one more time…
Warning: This book contains a firefighter hot enough to ignite flames, a woman who doesn’t want to get burned again, a honeymoon suite but no honeymoon, and sex not on the beach (sorry)
