I am hoping to catch up with Taryn again later so I can post her interview but in the meantime, here is the blurb and an excerpt from her latest Wild Rose Press release, Sleepy Hollow Dreams...enjoy!
All Katy Lyndhurst wants is a normal suburban Sleepy Hollow life, despite the strange things that keep happening to her. Blistering hot erotic dreams bleed into her waking hours, making her yearn for her dream lover to materialize. When her sexy dream voyager, Ryck, shows up in the flesh and ignites her steamiest passions, she wonders if he's a sultry fantasy conjured by her fevered brain…or something much more dangerous?
Centuries ago, a wicked succubus cursed Ryck Van Winkle to fulfill the desires of sleeping women while unable to take pleasure himself. Only Katy possesses the power to break the spell and awaken him. But Ryck’s defiance sparks the demon’s fury, causing supernatural portals to crumble and allowing demonic minions to threaten Katy and her world.
Now Katy and Ryck must battle the forces of darkness together. But will Ryck will be trapped forever in her Sleepy Hollow Dreams?
Ghostly hoof beats. The legendary Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow.
With deadly purpose.
Faster and faster.
Katy ran on, her sides cramping. Her flip-flops smacked asphalt but the clop of the demonic hooves echoed louder. She clattered into the street as the sidewalk ended, and gasped for air.
A piece of one rubber thong broke and she stumbled, tripping onto the grassy median bordering Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Her shriek ripped through the quiet suburban village. Utter fatigue claimed her, halting her steps. She collapsed in exhaustion, her sleep-drenched mind blanking as she fell.
Hard-muscled arms scooped her up before she hit the ground. The horse’s unearthly scream ripped through her as the beast thundered past. Her rescuer clasped her against his broad, masculine chest. A familiar glow of warmth stole over her, filling her with a sense of peace and security...
Beneath her ear, a strong heartbeat pulsed, quickening in time to the increased thudding of her own. His autumn scent seduced her as he swept her away, his long-legged strides purposeful and sure. She rested her cheek against his shoulder, her head fitting perfectly in the hollow of his neck. Her fear ebbed, replaced by desire.
A large hand slid over her breasts, her nipples already taut and straining with need against the thin cotton of her dress. She arched into him, rubbing herself against him like a cat in heat, rewarded by his harsh gasp and the ragged hitch in his breathing.
Moments later he carried her into the cemetery, and she felt the soft October earth, rich and spongy, at her back. Large, manly hands made quick work of the few clothes she wore.
“I’m dreaming,” she murmured.
“No. Not this time. Open your eyes.”
1) Who is your favourite author and why?
Recently finished Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione and now I'm captivated by her Demonica series. Must get them all. Not often you find a HOT doctor who's an incubus demon, after all! Also love everything by Nalini Singh. Plowing through her Psy-Changeling series, as we speak. Lately, I've been picking up some really, really terrific e-novellas from The Wild Rose Press and Carina Press. (Can't name names without getting myself in trouble!)
2) When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When I first was able to get all those squiggly marks to line up and march across a piece of paper!
3) Describe your writing space?
4) What are you reading now?
Mine to Possess, Book 4, of Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series. Next up, Sandra Sookoo's Angel's Master.
5) How many books have your written?
Lots. Many of which are gathering dust. And dust bunnies. Hear them growling?
6) Which is your favourite?
That's a little like asking a mother who her favorite child is! I'll be diplomatic and say, "Why, the current WIP, of course."
7) What comes first, plot or characters?
Oh, characters. Definitely. It's all about the characters. They'll tell you where they want to go and what they want to do. Or why they don't!
8) Do you ever suffer from writer’s block?
Oh, no. Never. BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HAH!
9)What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Reading, movies. Feeding my Twitter and Blogger addiction! Just started getting on Goodreads. So far, cannot figure out how to comment, even! I'm such a non-geek.
10) Tell us about your latest book?
Sleepy Hollow Dreams is an erotic paranormal that started as a mild-mannered little Halloween story and morphed into something steamy, sizzling, dreamy... and erotic.
11) What’s next for you?
Switching gears from erotic paranormal to Regency historical! Healing Hearts will be released by Carina Press in February!
