About INSPIRE:

Kalliope lives with one purpose.

To inspire.

As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.

Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for the mortal.

Her presence may inspire genius.

But it breeds madness, too.

 

Inspire Teaser 3

Excerpt:

I can feel Wilder’s breath against my lips. More than that, I can see it. The sun has set and the temperature has dropped, and air fogs between us. There’s something about actually seeing it, like our lips are touching, we are touching, despite the distance between. And as we sway from side to side, my heart gradually begins to pick up speed.

The strains of guitar music flowing out from the restaurant are nearly indecipherable over the heavy heartbeat in my ears. But Wilder must hear it. His hands are strong on my body, guiding my movements, and I’m practically clay in his palms.

We dance, eyes on eyes, lips nearly on lips, and there is lightning beneath my skin each time his body brushes against mine in a new way. His touch is firm, but gentle, never pushing or pressuring, though I can tell from the dark look in his eyes that he’s just as affected as I am. The music shifts, building to a crescendo, and he spins us. My chest pushes tight against his, and I bite back a gasp. I don’t know if it’s the cold or him or some combination of both, but the tips of my breasts are painfully tight. Just the pressure of my bra is enough to rub them raw.

I remember the night at his apartment, the way he’d taken his time learning my body. I think of the heat of his mouth on my skin, and the memory alone is enough to make me shiver and clench.

He’s back to being business, grown-up Wilder tonight in his button down and glasses. Only now that I know him, it doesn’t seem like such a stark difference. He is neither the straight-laced man nor the tattooed bad boy. Or perhaps he’s both. Regardless of what he’s wearing, Wilder is caring and loyal and strong and so sexy that I’m having trouble remembering why I shouldn’t push him into the backseat of his SUV and crawl on top of him.

three christmases

 

As the holiday season approaches in this fourth book in the No Weddings Series, Cade Michaelson strives to be better at balancing work and love, and Hannah Martin’s growing ability to trust is put to the test.

Lust and friendship brought us together, but with the increasing demands of my two businesses, Hannah’s thriving bakery, and our successful event-planning company, stability becomes my focus.

Then a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity takes me to the West Coast, and everything goes into a tailspin.

Laughter, love, and excitement fill our lives, but Cade refuses to settle into the wonderful bliss we’ve found—he wants spectacular fireworks and an unshakable foundation. Driven like no one I’ve ever met, Cade insists a dream job across the country will be better for our future together, but I worry about whether we can survive the present apart.

When intimate time diminishes…and lives get more hectic…

Will a little bit of faith be all that it takes? Or will the sacrifice to get there be too great?

Desperate to honor a life-long promise, Susanna MacEalan escapes her abusive clan with the fierce determination of never falling under the power of a man. Ever.

Aggravated by shallow-hearted pursuing lasses, Robert Brodie, commander of his clan’s elite guard, has foresworn scheming women. Forever.

Amid a whirlwind of escalating events, Susanna’s traumatic past threatens Robert’s ability to protect the one woman meant for him. In a harrowing moment, as her fears and demons coalesce, will hope, faith, and love be enough to save them?

Interview with Author J.R. Gray @theoriginalgray

Interview with Author J.R. Gray

I love to interview authors and today and I thrilled to showcase J.R. Gray, the author of Legally Bound, Breach of Contract and Illicit Activity.

JR Gray banner

 

 

Susi:   How long have you been writing?

JR Gray:  I’ve been writing since I was seven.

Susi:   When did your passion for writing begin?

JR Gray:  At about the same time I started writing. I needed a place to put all the characters in my
head.

Susi:   How many books have you published?

JR Gray:  Three

Susi:   Are all of your books BDSM? Are you interested in writing any 
other genres?

JR Gray:  I finished two books before Legally Bound, neither are BDSM. I love BDSM but I’ve always been more drawn to Sci-Fi and Fantasy. The book I recently finished is New adult Sci-fi. I plan to publish in those genres as well as continuing with BDSM.

Susi:   What books are you currently working on?

JR Gray:  I am working on Damages Incurred, which is the third book in the Bound series, as well as a Genderbent Cinderella.

Susi:  When do you write?  Any specific routines?

JR Gray:  I write in the mornings and then edit at night.

Susi:  When not writing, what are your hobbies or interests?

JR Gray:  I like to play water polo and run as well as read.

Susi:   What inspires you to write?  Music, a muse?

JR Gray:  I listen to music when I write, but it’s not a muse. I take my inspiration from everything around me, conversations, things I’m reading or watching, real events, and of course my favorite are the ideas that hit me randomly as I’m about to fall asleep or in the shower.

Susi:  How long does it generally take you to write a book?

JR Gray:  Each book is different for me. Breach of Contract took me two months. But I have written some in less than a month.

Susi:  Describe a typical writing day for JR Gray.

JR Gray:  Wake up, run, lots of tea or coffee and writing.

Susi:  There has been a recent explosion in the genre of erotic/bdsm. 
What are your thoughts on this?

JR Gray:  I think it’s great. It has pushed a once frowned upon taboo practice into mainstream. It’s not looked at as weird or abusive anymore. People should be proud of who they are and what they enjoy, not embarrassed by it.

Susi:   Do you have any advice to offer to any writers wanting to get into 
this genre?

JR Gray:  Practice makes perfect, as with everything else in life. The more you write the better you’ll become. And if you don’t know BDSM well, research!

Susi:  Many writers use a pseudonym for writing. Do you?

JR Gray:  I do, although the J.R. are my real first two initials.

Susi:   What is your biggest mistake as a writer?

JR Gray:  Going against my gut with edits.After all, they are only suggestions.


Rapid Fire

Pet Peeve: Over description

First thing you notice about a person: How they speak and then eyes.

Hidden talents: I can fight properly with any sword you put in my hand. Yes I am a nerd.

Prized possession: It’s the heart and trust of someone who loves me, and it’s worth more than anything material.

Currently Reading: – The Winter Prince by Elizabeth Wein

Fave drink: Iced tea

Fave TV Show: The Walking Dead

Star Wars/Star Trek: Both!

Batman/Superman: Batman – Sorry, to my writing partner M.

 

Thank you JR for letting me interview you. It’s always fun to get to know authors better.  I look forward to reading more of your writing in the future.   To show my appreciation,   I’ve got some wicked CrĂ©me de Vie with your name on it.  ~Susi
