Cover Reveal: Wicked Passion by Amanda J. Greene

 I'm sorry everyone who clicked on this just to enter the giveaway.  I posted late!  Ya know, life gets in the way sometimes....

But you still get to enjoy the cover.

Title: Wicked Passion 

Series: Under Realm Assassins #3 

Author: Amanda J. Greene

James Stonewoll is an Elite Assassin for the Under Realm Syndicate - an expert hunter and merciless killer. As a former Pirate, he thrives on danger, the more perilous the mission, the better and he can't resist his newest contract: eliminate a rebel shape-shifting magic thief that stalks the border of the Under Realm kidnapping and murdering innocent Others. But never did the centuries old vampire anticipate playing hero to a mythical temptress with luscious curves, tantalizing lips, and hypnotic eyes.

  Captured and held prisoner, Katya Moro was trapped in a seemingly endless loop of unimaginable agony as her magic was slowly being torn from her soul. A gasp away from death, she is rescued by a sinful kiss and awakens in the strong arms of a powerful warrior whose roguish smile, sharp fangs, and intense strength unlock the dormant Succubus instincts within her – an all-consuming madness that demands complete surrender.

Gazing down at her, James knew he had to kill her. Dark Magic Wielders, like the beautiful female he’d found, were a grave threat to human society and were not permitted to roam the mortal world. But Katya’s smoky voice and sweet kisses stir a fierce hunger inside him. She is unpredictable, uncontrollable and… wickedly seductive – his perfect kind of dangerous. To keep her safe, James will protect her from the magic thieves that hunt her and his fellow assassins until he can find a way to return Katya to her home in the Under Realm.

Will Katya’s passion be able to conquer the darkness within his soul or will James let her go?

Genre: Historical Romance
England, 1820. To gain a certain marquess’s notice, Lady Albina Beauchamp aims to win the derby. What she hadn’t planned for is the price handsome Mr. Edmund White asks in payment to train her to race: each lesson for a kiss.
A first place finish isn’t the only thing worth racing for

Author Bio

After viewing her all-time favorite love story, “Anne of Green Gables”, at the impressionable age of ten, Frances Fowlkes has been obsessed with affable boy-next door heroes, red-heads, and romance stories with lots of “highfaluting mumbo jumbo” written within their pages. It only seems natural then that she married the boy who used to pull on her curls in her high school English class, had not one, but THREE red-headed boys, and penned multiple love stories with bits of flowery prose.
When not writing, Frances loves spending time with her family, fangirling, and planning her next vacation.
Frances Fowlkes, originally a northern mid-westerner, now lives in the southeast with her ardent hero of a husband, three playful and rambunctious boys, and one spoiled standard poodle.
A self-professed Anglophile and summa cum laude graduate of LeTourneau University, Frances Fowlkes combines her passion for happily-ever-afters with her interests in both American and English histories.

Author Interview

Would you please introduce yourself and tell us who Frances Fowlkes is?

Hey, everyone! Let's see...Frances Fowlkes is a USA Today Bestselling author of historical romance. I'm also a total fan girl of anything Harry Potter, Star Trek, and Marvel along with being a mom and wife. :)

I love that Anne and Gilbert insipred you to write. Did you start getting the creative bug right after watching the series or was it years after that you started putting pen to paper?

I LOVE Anne and Gil. I get the happy feels every time I watch the movies. Alas, I didn't start writing romance until almost twenty years after making their acquaintance.

Tell us which you prefer; an outline or going with the flow?  Does it change with each book you write?

I like a little of both. Too much outline and I feel restricted. Too little and I feel lost. I've evolved with each book, learning my preferences and catering to my strengths.

How long does it take you to write a book?  I imagine it gets easier and therefore goes more quickly with each book you write.

I'm a slow writer, though I am getting faster. I take about 3-4 months to write a book, but I budget for six to allow for life's distractions.  I only wish the process got easier! Logically, it should, but each book is its own creation, and while I have a good idea of my writing preferences, the characters and plot present their own challenges. A lot of times self-doubt hinders the creative process too.

What is the best thing about being a romance writer?  Do you or did you have any fears about writing?

The best thing about being a romance author are the readers. Their interest, their support--it makes writing that much more awesome.
I'd say my biggest writing fear, is that I won't live up to reader expectation. I really want to write the best book that I can, and I often second guess my abilities.

When your not writing, what activities do you get into?

I sew. Specifically fangirl themed dresses for myself and a few of my friends.  I also watch copius amounts of tv with my husband. But you can also find me knitting, reading, and volunteering at my children's schools.

I personally love to ask this question of anybody.  If you hadn’t become a romance writer, what would you have done?

I probably would have taught high school English. It's what I have a degree in, so...yeah.

Have you ever thought about writing in any other romance genre?

I have! I think it would fun (and extremely challenging) to write YA.

Can you describe any challenges of writing romance? The obvious answer is researching, but any others?

I think the biggest challenge is self-discipline and making writing a priority. With three involved and active kids, it's tough to block out the distractions and make time to sit down at the keyboard.

Do you start with character or plot?  Where do you get ideas for your characters?

I start with character, especially since all of my books are in the same universe. I'll write a character in one book and feature them in another. I really enjoy revisting them. As far as where I get the ideas to write them, I'd have to say the world at large. Music, tv, the internet...I'll hear something interesting, and it will just hit me.

Can you tell me a time when you were researching a book that you came across an interesting little tidbit?

Yes! My current release, To Win A Viscount, is about horse racing. While researching, I googled 'jockey positions' to get an idea of the correct position my heroine should be on the horse. Well, I got a bit more than I bargained for. Turns out  the jockey position is a sexual position. Let's just say my eyes were opened.

Finally, can you tell us what is next for you?  What your currently working on?

I am currently working on the final book in the Daughter of Amhurst series. The third sister, Sarah, has her chance at love. I may have something up my sleeve involving Sarah's bff too. ;)

Promo Post: What's Left of Me by Jennifer Loring

Recovering from years of living the superstar hockey life wasn’t easy, but now Aleksandr Volynsky finally has everything…

He’s married to the love of his life, expecting a daughter, and has a new job as an assistant coach with his old team, the Buffalo Gladiators. His happiness is short lived, however, when a sexual assault allegation surfaces, and Alex is forced to cooperate with an investigation for a crime he didn’t commit.

Stephanie Hartwell is juggling her dream job with marriage and motherhood, but she’s not convinced she’s doing any of it well…

Stephanie’s stress level goes from bad to worse when she’s diagnosed with a serious illness. Battling declining health and the critics who question her commitment to Alex in light of the allegation, she makes a decision that could change their relationship forever.

Alex is afraid he’s about to lose everything—especially when he sees Stephanie’s friend kiss her…

Devastated that his life is spiraling out of control again, Alex turns to his friend, Natasha, a Russian pop star. Convinced that Stephanie and her friend Brandon are having an affair, Alex resumes his self-destructive behavior.

What Alex doesn’t know is Stephanie has been conducting a secret investigation of her own. She learns the truth behind the sexual assault—a truth no one, especially Alex, expects.

With everything now out in the open, can Stephanie and Alex commit to a fresh start for the sake of their daughter, or will the ghosts of their pasts finally tear apart everything
