Scent of a Vampire
Aidan has searched several human lifetimes for his perfect mate. Now that he’s found her, he refuses to let go. He must make Gabrielle see they were destined to be together.

Immortal Flame
An off duty fire fighter encounters a sexy vampire in what he thought was an abandoned house.
The flames that ignite will leave them both scorched…and aching for more.

An Unexpected Evening
Samuel is a centuries-old vampire who prefers to be a recluse. He is always afraid of losing control and becoming the monster he once was. Falling in love with a young witch has pushed his boundaries and pulled him out of his comfort zone.
Katerina always encourages Samuel to be more open, to let loose, and to really "live" instead of only existing in the shadows.
One night, he finally grants her wish . . . in ways she never imagined.

Underneath the Fangs
Samuel is being framed for murder. Katerina knows he is not guilty but she has to convince Samuel that he is not a monster and that he is worthy of her love.

Cemetery Seduction
Abby, a half witch, half vampire whose powers go awry in a club, has to run, afraid that the Others, who are policing all human/magick interaction, might put her in jail. She ends up in a cemetery, jumps behind a bush and lands right on top of a very sexy ghost hunter.

No Place I'd Rather Be
Sonora is torn between a human and a vampire. How can she choose between the man who makes her feel safe and the vampire that makes her blood race? Sonora prays to the Goddess for guidance while harboring secret desires that her broody vampire, Brom, and her brawny human, Avery, can get past their jealousy and be willing to do more than just share the witch in the middle.
Can the Goddess grant Sonora's wish, or will she be stuck making an impossible choice?

Blood, Lust and Shadows
Vampire/succubus hybrid Allana is on the prowl looking for a bloody snack and a sexy energy boost. While strutting her stuff in a dark parking lot she encounters a yummy Latino who makes a lovely meal. She also encounters something else that puts her senses into overdrive.

Complete Circle
Lissette is a vampire who has lived with her succubus girlfriend, Cassandra, for a long time. She swore off relationships with men after being viciously raped by the vampire hunters who killed the love of her life and left her for dead.
Lissette and Cassandra only use men to get what they need, blood for Lissette and sexual energy for Cassandra. They are completely satisfied with their lives- until a mysterious stranger comes along.
For the first time in centuries Lissette wants a man. Why is she so drawn to him? What is he?
Much more than a mere mortal, Gabriel has been searching for Lissette and Cassandra for a very long time. They have what he needs, what no one else can give him.
But will they be willing to share?

A Package Deal
Chloe needs to get out of the city- fast. So she buys an old farmhouse out in the middle of nowhere- with one stipulation. The caretaker gets to stay. She readily agrees thinking it’s an old man that won’t give her any trouble.
Ash is definitely not what she expected.

My Demon Valentine
Elita wants to give her demon boyfriend a Valentine’s Day to remember. Connor was built for giving pleasure but Elita wants to turn the tables on that.
This time the pleasure will be all his.

PRFL would like to extend a very warm welcome to the inestimable Roxanne Rhoads, author of Paranormal Pleasures II. Roxanne, to begin, can you tell us where you're love for writing come from?
My mother read to me every night when I was little. The one thing we always had a lot of was books. By the time I was 4, I was reading to her. My love of writing came naturally from my love of reading.

Can you say that your journey to publication was difficult? If so, what were the hardest moments to get through?
Yes and no. My journey started early. My first poem was published in a local magazine when I was 11.  In middle school, high school, and college I was published a lot. I wrote for all my school papers. In high school and college I wrote for the local newspaper as well as an entertainment magazine. I had a lot of poetry published in national magazines.
Then life happened. Marriage, kids, mundane jobs.
I came back to writing professionally in 2005 and started writing fiction in addition to my poetry and non-fiction. I’ve been publishing ever since.

How do you overcome i-suck-at-this, that little voice in your head that tells you your writing isn’t good enough?
No, does anyone ever fully overcome that?

What is your dream vacation?
A cabin in the middle of nowhere, a lake, relaxation.

Describe your writing style in five words.
Sexy, explicit, erotic, darkly paranormal

What are you currently reading?
I am reading Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series, late to the game I just started book 4 but I love this series and being able to read the books back to back is something I really love.

If you weren’t a writer, what other careers would you pursue?
Art, graphic design.

If you could create a holiday of your own, what would it be called?
Curl Up with a Book Day

What are two of your pet-peeves?
Thoughtlessness and forgetfulness (it’s my OCD, when things are not where they are supposed to be I get cranky)

To you, what makes a good story?
I love character driven story lines. I love to see what makes them tick, how they think, how they change and grow over a series.

What is on your night stand?
A lamp that looks like a corset and when I got to bed I add a bottle of water and my phone (which doubles as my alarm clock). The stand has three drawers full of books ;-)

Thank you so much for joining us today, Roxanne. We really enjoyed the visit. Good luck and great sales with Paranormal Pleasures II
