It's that time of year again. The nights are getting longer and we all want to curl up with someone hot and spicy...I mean something hot and erotic. Oh, how about settling for a cup of hot chocolate and a good book? That sounds great, doesn't it? With that in mind, today's guest is erotic romance author Elodie Parkes - the first guest on the new Femmes of the Frisky Quill segment of my blog. Elodie is going to introduce us to her latest novel, which is named A Little Mysterious. I admire Elodie greatly, as most of you know. She astounds me and leaves me in awe of her writing abilities and capabilities. She is extremely prolific. One day, she will be famous as the 'Stephen King' of Erotic Romance. She maintains a high level of creative output. Elodie writes more books in one year than I will ever write in a lifetime! So, without further ado, please join me in welcoming Elodie!
He’d been sent off course…he thought he was lost…until he found Daisy.
His vampire abilities were special. He belonged to an elite group. Moving home, they are set off course by a storm that lands Dhruv alone, hungry, and desperate in a strange town.
A story of lust, love, and coincidence.
Today the main characters from ‘A Little Mysterious’, Dhruv and Daisy are visiting the blog.
Daisy, would you like to tell the readers about how you and Dhruv met?
We met on the high street in the café I worked in didn’t we Dhruv?
Dhruv: We did formally meet then, although I took a while to sat much to Daisy. I liked her as soon as I saw her. That was before we actually met. I’d seen her around shall we say. I don’t want to give spoilers.
Daisy: That’s true, but I wanted you right away. I could hardly take my eyes off you. When I went up the back of the café and cleared the tables, I used to stare at you.
Dhruv: You did more than stare you sighed over me. I knew it. I could sense it. I could feel your need and it fuelled mine.
He leans across and kisses Daisy, then keeps hold of her hand.
Dhruv, Can you describe when you first knew you were in love with Daisy?
Dhruv: You know, I’m sorry but I can’t. It was weird for me. I couldn’t admit it to myself. I think Daisy loved me right away. Did you Daisy?
Daisy: I knew I wanted to make love with you, but I felt such a strong attraction to you I think I might have loved you right away. Then I knew the first time we made love, it was sex that turned into making love. For me anyway. Although I liked him the moment I saw him, in the cafe doorway. I wanted those arms around me right away.
She leans across and kisses him this time .I better ask another question since now they are starting to get a little heated.
What’s one thing you might have changed about your story?
Daisy: Nothing, since it’s the real story. Although I’ve never been happy with my name, and that I’m not very tall, Dhruv can tuck me under his arm. Although things are a little different now since we really got together, but I can’t tell you that. It would be a spoiler.
Dhruv: That’s so sexy Daisy, that I can pick you up and cuddle you into my body. You’re beautiful the way you are.
As for me changing the story, more sex, although there’s loads, I’m addicted to Daisy now and I find it hard to keep my hands off her. I might have said a little more about our lives after we got together, but that might be better in another book.
Dhruv, tell us something about Daisy, how would you describe her in a few words?
Dhruv: She’s very pretty, slender, intelligent. I think she’s kind and generous, and she treats people really well. She’s brave too. She likes the countryside and water. Starts to laugh and hugs Daisy.
Daisy, describe Dhruv in a few words.
Very sexy, giving, clever, thoughtful, a great lover, knows what he wants or needs to do and goes for it. He’s very creative, and talented artistically.
So what’s hot about the story?
The steam rises from the love scenes.
I think the way Daisy responds to me.
I think it’s the way you talk dirty to me.
Dhruv: Do I?
Now Daisy is stroking his arm, okay time for an excerpt.
How about you both choose your favorite scene from the book.
Daisy: It has to be a love scene for me, what about you Dhruv?
Dhruv: I think so, the hotter the better. (Grins)
