for an interview and a look at her latest release!!
Holding Out for a Hero
Christine Bell, Ella Dane, Nico Rosso, Tamara Morgan, and Adrien-Luc Sanders
Scarlett Fever by Christine Bell and Ella Dane
After five years in training, it’s finally time for Scarlett Fever and her fellow superheroes toleave the United Superhero Academy and test their powers out in the real world. There’s only one problem. She’s been assigned to partner with arrogant, by the book, and irritatingly hot, Blade of Justice.
Blade’s whole life has gone according to plan, and he’s more than ready to move on to the big time, protecting a metropolis of his own. But his perfectly ordered life is derailed when he’s teamed up with the fiery maverick, Scarlett Fever.
Sparks fly the moment they arrive in Plunketville, Oklahoma, as they each set out to force the other to request a transfer. They soon discover there’s more going on in this single stop-sign town than blowing up mailboxes and cow tipping. If Scarlett can get Blade to listen to his gut, and he can teach her to use her head, they just might have a fighting chance.
Ironheart by Nico Rosso
Vince might be hard as steel, but he’s not invincible. Not when iron touches him, especially in the hands of an evil minion. Not when Kara ran away after a whirlwind affair, just when he thought he might be falling in love. And definitely not when she returns, looking for his help.
The archvillain TechHead is coming for Kara and her superhero teammates, and he’s determined to use their combined power to create the ultimate weapon. But Kara can’t fight him alone. She needs Vince’s brutal skill, though being with him means she risks losing her beloved secret identity, leaving her nowhere else to hide.
When TechHead makes a play to capture Kara, Vince has more to lose than just his heart. But he will do anything for the woman he loves, even if it means putting his heart on the line again.
Playing With Fire by Tamara Morgan
Fiona Nelson has always been one hot ticket—even before she took the conversion serum that gave her superhuman abilities. Fiona’s powers come at a price: lack of human contact, or she won’t be the only thing burning. When she loses control of her emotions, her fire powers run rampant…and she’s hurt enough people already.
But when the man behind her conversion returns to blackmail her into helping him gain power, the only person she can turn to is Ian Jones, the man who broke her teenage heart. The man determined to expose the criminal known as Fireball, whose explosive escapades are just a little too close to Fiona’s M.O.
Ian is convinced Fiona’s dangerous, convinced she’s Fireball, and convinced he’ll damn himself if he doesn’t resist a heat that’s always drawn him to Fiona like a moth to a flame—but Ian has his own secrets.
And he’ll learn far too soon what happens when you play with fire.
From the Ashes by Adrien-Luc Sanders
Sociopath. Killer. Deviant. Monster, devoid of morals, incapable of human emotion. The villain known as Spark has been called that and more, and as a super-powered aberrant has masterminded countless crimes to build his father’s inhuman empire.
Yet to professor Sean Archer, this fearsome creature is only Tobias Rutherford— antisocial graduate researcher, quiet underachiever, and a fascinating puzzle Sean is determined to solve.
One kiss leads to an entanglement that challenges everything Tobias knows about himself, aberrants, and his own capacity to love. But when his father orders him to assassinate a senator, one misstep unravels a knot of political intrigue that places the fate of humans and aberrants alike in Tobias’s hands. As danger mounts and bodies pile deeper, will Tobias succumb to his dark nature and sacrifice Sean—or will he defy his father and rise from the ashes to become a hero in a world of villains?

Is there an author that makes you go all "fangirl?"
Gillian Flynn. Not romance, she writes thrillers, but oh mama, do I love her. I read the same three books over and over and imagine I will be as good of a writer as she is when I grow up (even though I’m older than she is :oD) For romance, I think because I spend a lot of time in that community, I don’t feel quite as fangirl where I would maybe sneeze/pee a little if I saw them in real life, but I love reading books by Tessa Dare, Shannon Stacey and Cari Quinn. All super talented, all autobuy authors for me.
If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
I’ve already co-authored three books (one which is in the Holding Out for a Hero anthology called Scarlett Fever with author Ella Dane) but in the future I would love to write a book with Cari Quinn. I love her and we I have a similar, humorous by sexy writing style so I think it would be a lot of fun!
The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
ACK! ONE?! That’s terrible. BUT, my Kindle Paperwhite is the size of a small book, so maybe…no? *sigh* Okay, I guess I’d take Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn.
Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else's)
Hmm…well, I’m a huge Dickens fan, so I love all his characters. As for my own characters, I have two favorites, I think. I love Lindy Knight in my contemporary romance novel Wife for Hire. She’s adorable, neurotic and really funny. And then I love Scarlett Fever. She’s a superhero, but she’s also really flawed. Disorganized, ballsy and impulsive to a fault. I think I identify with her a lot.
If your friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
Where do you do your best work?
On my writing chair in my bedroom.
Do you find it harder to write a full-length novel or novellas?
I like writing both, actually, but it took me a long time to build up the stamina for longer books. Just trying to wrap my head around “Okay, a hundred pages done. A hundred and fifty pages to go!” was almost surreal.
When did you fall in love...with writing?
When I wrote my first poem in third grade.
Are you a plotter or fly by the seat of your pants writer?
I used to fly by the seat of my pants, but after writing myself into a corner and having to do one too many major renovations, I started using outlines and trying to plot more concisely.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of writing?
I like a lot of different things, going to the movies, reading, playing board games, poker, watching Doctor Who, traveling, playing tennis. I don’t like to be bored, so I try to stay busy!
Favorite color: I can’t choose. I don’t want to give the other colors a complex.
Favorite food: Popeye’s chicken.
Boots or heels: Both.
eReader or Print: eReader
Social Media: Love it or Hate it? Love Twitter, hate facebook
Beer, Liquor or Wine: Yes, please.
Favorite place to get it on besides the bedroom: the living room
Favorite TV Show: Game of Thrones
Favorite Book series (besides your own): Harry Potter
Pj’s or Lingerie: depends
Vampires vs. Shifters: superheroes
Favorite Genre: contemporary romance
