Guest Author: Lora Leigh featuring Heat Seeker & Hot for the Holidays

Wednesday, September 30


***This giveaway is now over. Thanks for entering!***


Wednesday, is the second most dreaded day of the week after Mondays....unless your reading this, then today has been the day you've been waiting for. Today is the day Lora Leigh will be visiting! Woo hoo! I couldn't be more excited.

I don't remember exactly how I found Lora's first book that I read, but I definitely remember which one it was. They always say you remember your firsts :) My first was Forbidden Pleasure and to this day remains my favorite from the Bound Hearts series. From there I had to read the rest of the Bound Hearts series. I then graduated to the Men of August series...I now own all of Lora books that have been published (some of them are even signed). Like Lori Foster, Lora Leigh occupies a large space on my keeper shelves. I don't think I could ever part with them.

Her books are an addiction for me. I love the intense, seriously sexy, and emotional novels that she writes and count the days until every new release. Thankfully she is a prolific writer! This week marks the release of a new Breed novella in the anthology Hot for the Holidays, which consequently is hot on the heels of her latest Elite Ops novel, Heat Seeker. Happy Days!


First off I just want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to answer the blog questions! This is a very hectic time for me and I know that you have waited patiently for my response. I’m hoping that these answers satisfy not only you, but each and every reader that will be viewing and responding to them.

I’m overwhelmed and genuinely ecstatic that I have the opportunity to have the readers that I do. They keep me going, keep me writing, and inspire me to keep doing what I love to do. Not everyone enjoys waking up everyday to do something they love. I have that opportunity and I embrace it. It’s my fans, my readers; that brought me to the place in life that I’m at. So, for that I’m grateful for them and the passion they have to keep reading and keep enjoying the books that I write for them.

Welcome Lora! I can’t even begin to tell you how honored I am to have you as my guest at Seductive Musings. I know that you are an extremely busy writer so taking the time to answer these questions is greatly appreciated. I am a HUGE fangirl of yours. Each of your books that I have read has made its way to my keeper shelves. Wild Card, Loving Lies and Sarah's Seduction hold special places in my heart. Who are some of your favorite authors, and what’s on your keeper shelves?

My absolute favorite authors are Linda Howard and J.D. Robb. At the moment, my two favorite books are Linda Howard – Shakes of Twilight and J.D. Robb – Naked in Death. These are a must have for me.

I have to say that I've never read any books by either of these authors...now I'm wondering what I've been missing. For readers who have not read one of your books before, which is unfathomable to me but know it is true, can you tell us what you think makes a great love story, and what readers should expect when they read one of your novels? What is it about writing romance that appeals to you?

You know, there are many factors involved when it comes to a great love story. There has to be a certain intensity level that sparks my interest and pull on those sometimes very sensitive heart strings. But, if you can grasp my attention and make me want to feel for the characters and the emotions they are feeling then I’m very satisfied.

My readers should expect a depth of emotion and sensuality combined with an adventurous plot when they pick up one of my novels. I write for my fans. I try to appeal to what I believe they will enjoy. Because there are so many different tastes out there, I try to mix up the emotions, the writing style and flow of the novels so that maybe if the first book in the series didn’t grab their attention then maybe they’ll fall in love with the second or third. Because, if I fail to please my fans, then not only have I let them down; but also myself.

For me, writing romance is appealing because it gives me and my readers the ability to live the ultimate emotional adventure. Whether it be a sensual yet erotic love scene or the passion that I feel between the characters when I write their story.

An emotional, sensual, and passionate adventure is a great way to describe your stories. What book(s)are you most proud of, or feel is/are your biggest personal achievement(s) when you don’t take into account sales, reviews, reader comments, or awards & why?

This is a very complex question! It’s very simple yet very difficult to answer all at the same time. I feel that I’m connected with every novel that I write. Once the novel has gone through it’s many different processes of making it onto the bookshelves; each and every one of them are achievements. However, I believe every author has a favorite story they’ve told that gave them a sense of accomplishment they’ll never forget. For me those books are Elizabeth’s Wolf and Wild Card. These are my favorites because they both have an emotional depth and sensual awakening beyond what I’ve felt come from any of my other characters.

Oh, Nathan Malone (the hero from Wild Card/Elite Ops series #1) is one of my all-time fav heroes!! He ranks right up there with Jamie Fraser. Heat Seeker is your newest release in your fantastic Elite Ops series. I absolutely love this series; the men live half lives of secret soldiers with nothing to lose and sometimes very few reasons to live until they find or renew relationships with their forbidden loves. Tell us about John your hero in Heat Seeker, what you think makes his story so compelling, and what you love most about him?

John’s story was so compelling because despite the fact that he was supposedly dead; his love for Bailey in an amazing undying love. No matter the resistance; the love he has for her will never die.
Now, what do I love most about John? His devotion. John was willing to do whatever it took to be with Bailey. The intensity of emotion that I feel from him makes me love him even more.

I couldn't agree more. His devotion to Bailey is portrayed in both words and actions. What's your favorite scene or moment from Heat Seeker, and why? Mine is a steamy one (literally) where John and Bailey are in the shower and he says to her:
"I remember, love" he whispered as a soft sob tore from her lips. "I remember every touch, every kiss. I remember you like a dream that saves my soul."
….sigh this is such a moving and tender moment for these two lovers who have lost so much. It’s one of my favorites and I think is a great example of John's devotion to Bailey.

Well, I have to admit, it’s my favorite scene too. I thought about trying to give you another scene that I could mark as my favorite; but it would be a complete lie. When I could visually see John and Bailey sharing this moment together I immediately knew that it was by far my favorite in this novel. I’m pleased to see that others share that opinion with me as well.

You also have a new Breed novella in Hot for the Holidays, and anthology with Anya Bast, Angela Knight, and Allyson James(just released yesterday) Can you tell us about your paranormal romance novella?

Yes, I believe I could elaborate a little for you. The Christmas Kiss is telling the compelling story of Hawke; who is a wolf breed and Jessica who is a human. In Aiden’s Charity, Jessica was believed to have betrayed the breeds. In The Christmas Kiss, she has just been released from confinement. Hawke decides that he cannot and will not wait any longer to claim is mate and protect her from the danger that stalks her.

You are one busy writer! One of my fav books is Loving Lies from the Men of Summer series. I have heard some rumors online that you are writing the sequels to the first novel. Crossing my fingers that this is true :)

Who are some of the most requested characters that readers want you to write stories for? You have commitments to the Breed, Pleasure, and Elite Ops series, but is there a book or character's story that you are dying to write once you find the time?

I think that everyone will agree with me when I say there aren’t many requested “characters” that the readers are wanting to snatch up. There is ONE character story that everyone wants to have their hands on. Who is this you ask? Jonas. Yes, after making everyone want him, love him and lust for him; his story will finally be told. Jonas’ story will be told in “Lion’s Heat” set to release April 2010. I know you all are very excited to hear about this. But, I’m even more excited to finally be able to tell his story as only Jonas would allow.

So, you want to know if there is a book or character’s story that I’m dying to write whenever I have the free time to do so? Well, I won’t ruin it for you too much, but I’m dying to write a historical “Men of August” book. I’m not sure when or how this is going to come about. But,it’s definitely something that I can’t get out of my head.

Jumping up and down....I love love love Jonas! And a revisit to the Men of August....I think I am in Booklover heaven. What are some of your other upcoming releases fans can look forward to? What seeds of brilliance are you working on now? Give us the insider’s scoop, we’re dying to know!

Well I’ve already let the cat out of the bag that Jonas’ story will be told in “Lion’s Heat”. I know everyone’s thrilled for that to be hitting the shelves. But, there’s also “Guilty Pleasure”, telling the story of Khalid and Marty and Nauti Deceptions which will give you the story of Rogue and Zeke. There’s a few others, but I’m sure that this will more than satisfy your curiosity. ;)

Yep it's official, I'm a goner :) To get Jonas, Khalid and Zeke's story all in one year may be more than I can handle. This year was the 3rd annual RAW weekend (which was Sept 25-27) How did this weekend come about, will you celebrate this event again next year, and what can readers enjoy if they attend?

RAW came about for my readers. I am so thankful and appreciative of my readers. In more ways than they could ever imagine. Initially it was just a weekend get together of a few authors and readers in a small event where we could mingle, talk to each other and find out a little more about what they love about us. There are too many events where the readers don’t get a chance to talk to their favorite authors other than a quick signing of their books. I wanted to steer away from that and give them a personal experience. From that weekend, it grew to something I never would have imagined. And that’s a great thing!

As announced during the RAW event, I will be hosting RAW again next year. The theme is yet to be decided. However, I can tell you that registration will open earlier and end later. There will also be a larger cut off number. So those readers that missed the deadline this year will hopefully be able to register in time for next year’s event. The readers can expect to meet with the authors that attend, dress up and have a great time during our evening events, and just have a chance to meet the people that they’ve come to love on the forum. As always there will be a hot breakfast in the morning, book signing in the afternoons, meet and mingle time with all of the authors during the dinner and unique themed events of the evening. During the days and nights there will be raffles sold for certain causes. This year we sold raffles for author unique gift baskets that will help support the “Bay’s Mountain Wolf Preserves” and funding for the library at Star Elementary School in Rush, KY.

I am saving my pennies in hopes of being able to attend RAW next year. It sounds like so much fun and so many of the authors that I read attended this year. If you could ask readers a question, what would it be?

Well, I’m going to take this opportunity to ask a few questions actually. The most important questions I have:
  • What is it about my novels that touch you, what keeps you wanting more and leaving you emotionally satisfied?
  • What Breed book is your favorite, or which one are you most looking forward to? 
  • Aside from Jonas’ story, which character’s story would you most want to read next? 
  • If you had the chance to name a breed child, what would you name it?
I can’t wait to read the responses to these questions!

Finally, just for fun…if you could write the “fortune” in a fortune cookie what would it be?

“Caution! A Breed is in your future.”

A former Elite Ops captain with a dark past meets his match in a female ex-CIA agent who’s dead-set on revenge. And this time, the action—and the attraction—is more adrenaline-pumping than ever…

DARE TO DESIRE

John Vincent has always led a life of danger, and now he has every reason to want to remain as dead as the obituary in the Australian papers had proclaimed him to be. He’d left nothing behind in the life he had once led—except for one woman, and one night of unforgettable passion. Now, both will return to haunt him…

SEDUCE TO DESTROY

Bailey Serborne is still tormented by a past she can’t change and a man she hasn’t been able to forget. A man who was supposed to dead.. But now, a stroke of fate has revealed that sometimes, a woman is given a second chance to heal her heart—and exact the sweetest revenge…




Something passionate. Something mysterious. Something sexy.  And something totally inviting. It's the perfect gift for the holidays.
Four bestselling authors invite readers to spend the night with these never-before-published novellas spiced with sexy romance and paranormal passion. So come in out of the cold and experience the thrill of a soul-stirring new tale of the Breeds from Lora Leigh, a return to the beguiling world of the Mageverse from Angela Knight, and two more mesmerizing and unexpected stories of sensual surprises and seasonal spirits from Anya Bast and Allyson James.  Includes A Christmas Kiss by Lora Leigh

My many thanks to Lora and her daughter who helped make this possible (you really do deserve a raise). If you haven't read any of the Elite Ops series then I highly recommend you start with Wild Card. It is my favorite, but really all of them are good reads, especially Heat Seeker. And don't miss out on the free novella Night Hawk! (the link will be to a form to sign up for the novella which will then be sent to you in a separate email).

You can find Lora at her website, or on MySpace. Please take a moment to answer Lora's questions to her readers. You never know, something you say may end up in a book! (and it's possible that if there are more than 50 comments I might be persuaded to giveaway my own *SIGNED* ARC of Heat Seeker). Have a great Wednesday!

I already read Heat Seeker and can I say WOOOHOOOO! Loved it as i do all her Elite Ops books!

Thank you!

Virginia C September 30, 2009 at 7:28 AM  

Hello, Lora! I love the fact that you are so involved with your characters. Your passion shines through! Character development is the most important part of storytelling. If you care about the characters, the setting, time period, theme don't really matter. Great characters rock in any scenario! gcwhiskas at aol dot com

Angela H.,  September 30, 2009 at 8:43 AM  

Hello Lora!
Thanks for the interview, I really enjoyed it! Here are my answers:
1. The emotional element for me, the knowledge that everything good comes with some element of bad.(my thought is if you don't have bad times you can't appreciate the good times)
2. For me Aiden's Charity
3. I would love to read Cassie's story or maybe even Dog.
4. Mason (boy or girl)
I look forward to Kahlid and Zeke's story and all your future efforts. Your efforts keep me sane my dh is always deployed and I have you and 2 other authors on auto buy to give me a retreat world so thanks so much for all your hard work and I wish you all the best!

Book Junkie September 30, 2009 at 9:30 AM  

Hi Lora!

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to read all about Hawke and Jessica!!! I was so curious about them. What a fantastic world you have created with the Breeds!!! And let's not forget Jonas! Love him!!!

Helen C,  September 30, 2009 at 9:41 AM  

I am so grateful that you continue to write these splendid novels, and are so prolific. Elizabeth's Wolf and Wild Card are also my favorites, but it's hard to chose. Maverick is also a masterpiece in my opinion. I love a story where the girl is loved and protected by the hero.

jeanette8042 September 30, 2009 at 11:24 AM  

I LOVE Mercury's War, it's my absolute favorite from the Breed series and I'm waiting desperately to read Lion's Heart, Jonas's story!!!

I've already read Heat Seeker, and it's awesome!

Booklover1335 September 30, 2009 at 11:41 AM  

Hey Angela,
I have to agree with you on several points. I love the emotional aspect to Lora's books. It seems like my favs (Loving Lies, Sarah's Seduction, Wild Card, and Mercury's War) were very emotional as well as being intense with a great story H/h and of course hot hot hot!

I also can't wait to read Cassie's story. She is a very intriguing character :)

Hi Helen!
Gah, can't believe I forgot Maverick. It's my fav Elite Ops after Wild Card

Jonas, Jonas, Jonas there's a reason were all Jonas crazy Lora. You've been teasing us with him for years!

Texas J September 30, 2009 at 12:30 PM  

I love all of your books, they pull you in so that you are really aprat of the story and hate it when it ends.
I would have to say that I have a couple of favorites,
Elizabeth's Wolf (which I have read more than once..) and Mercury's War.
I really want to see a story about Cassie, I have been watching for her's eversince the end of Dawn's Awakeing. I don't have a specific name that I could think of for one of the special children, but maybe Honnor.

Maija P. September 30, 2009 at 12:31 PM  

What I like most about your books is the sexy as hell feeling through out the books. When I pick up a book by you, I know I'll get a fantastic story with scorching scenes!
So far I've read Men of August series and some of the Tempting SEAL books. I'll definitely collect every books you've written!

Pamk September 30, 2009 at 12:33 PM  

What is it about my novels that touch you, what keeps you wanting more and leaving you emotionally satisfied? you said it right there they not only engage the mind but the emotions too. damn you you make me cry and if you can do that then you've done your job lol. Not many authors can make me cry but your one that can. I cry, laugh, cuss and generally live the book.
What Breed book is your favorite, or which one are you most looking forward to? Kane and Shanna I cried in that one. Jonas's is the one I'm looking forward to of course.
Aside from Jonas’ story, which character’s story would you most want to read next? Rogue's I think she's been through a lot. And can't wait for her to get her payback.
If you had the chance to name a breed child, what would you name it? Mckayla or Cade
Love these books and have ordered both of your new ones.Sorry I missed raw but caught the flu at the last minute. Maybe next year.

chey September 30, 2009 at 1:45 PM  

I haven't yet read any of your books, but I like what I've read about them today! More to add to my tbr list!

Mary G September 30, 2009 at 2:02 PM  

Hi Lora
You are one of my fave authors. I wrote to you after I read Wild Card because it literally took my breath away (& thanks for replying). You write very deep sensual stories. I love your Alpha Men because you pair them with strong women. I love your Nauti Boys too. I have not read a Breed book yet. I love your Bound Hearts
too. I'm in the middle of Heat Seeker (& loving it) & at first it reminded me of Noah In Wild Card but trust you to make each story unique. Best wishes

Susan Helene Gottfried September 30, 2009 at 2:57 PM  

Oh, ladies. What a great interview! I'd love to make it to RAW one year; it was out of the budget this year, sad to say.

Carrie, thanks for the e-mail. No need to enter me for anything; I'm here to let you know I've posted about this at Win a Book.

joder September 30, 2009 at 3:09 PM  

Hi Lora, so great to have you here!

What I like about your books is the sexiness (sometimes subtle, sometimes not so subtle) between characters and how you slowly ramp up the attraction.

For me, my favorite book is Kiss of Heat-Kane and Sherra's story. Although I'm dying for Jonas' story and am super excited the wait is coming to an end.

And the name I'm lovin' for a breed child is Mya or Zephyr.

Cathy M September 30, 2009 at 3:24 PM  

Hi Lora, the first book I ever read of yours was, Elizabeth's Wolf and I've been hooked ever since. Love the sensuality and romance in your stories, they are truly captivating and always have me wanting more.

I auto-buy all your stories and just received my copy of Heat Seeker, and I can't wait to start it.

Would love to read Cassie's story.

Jessica September 30, 2009 at 6:10 PM  

The thing is I haven't read any books by Lora. Which is a shame as I would love to and have been meaning to but the whole too many books too little time applies. Maybe it will change now : )
jessica(at)fan(dot)com

Terri,  September 30, 2009 at 6:14 PM  

I just started reading your books but I find your story lines intriging and your characters well developed and interesting. You invest a lot of emotion in each scene making the reader become a part of it. I wish I had tried your books a long time ago.

As I'm way behind on the Breed series and have only read the Nauti series, I'm leaving the other questions unanswered as I have no idea how to answer them.

We, Billy and I, loved meeting you and all the other folks at RAW. We had a great time and I'll work on getting Billy to agree to attend again....hopefully sooner rather than later.

ddurance September 30, 2009 at 7:32 PM  

I'm so ashamed to say, but I've never actually read any of Lora's books. *bows head*
I've certainly heard good things, I guess they've just slipped out of my hands thus far.

Deidre

Mitzi September 30, 2009 at 7:53 PM  

I love all your books, but the breed series is my favorite. I like the fact that the breeds find their one true life long mate and their lack of control during their mating heat is very sexy.

My favorite breed book (I guess if I have to choose)it would be the first book, Tempting The Beast. I just fell in love with Callan. I'm looking forward to all your books.


I'd love to read Cassie, Jonas, and Dane's stories. And I'd also like to see the love story featuring the orignial Leo.

A breed child name: Hmmmm, maybe for a girl - Ivy.....And for a boy - Casey.

Thanks for the chance to win one of Lora's Books!!!

Jeanine September 30, 2009 at 7:56 PM  

What is it about my novels that touch you, what keeps you wanting more and leaving you emotionally satisfied? I love the relationships

What Breed book is your favorite, or which one are you most looking forward to?

The one I am reading is always my favorite...LOL Can't pick just one

Aside from Jonas’ story, which character’s story would you most want to read next?
Not really sure.... I like them all

If you had the chance to name a breed child, what would you name it?

I have always like Skye or Skyler. And also Alexandra...for a girl, but us Xandi.... for the name.

Thanks Jeanine

Booklover1335 October 1, 2009 at 9:01 AM  

Hey Mitzi,
I agree the Breeds are a fav. I too especially liked the first one Tempting the Beast because it was discovering a whole new world that even they new little about. For that reason Callen's story will always remain a fav. I think you are also right that the original Leo's story would be fun to read for those very same reasons. How did they cope with all of it...so many questions unanswered :)

I also really liked that in Bengal's Heart Lora introduced a new secret to the breeds (primal). And was excited to learn that Jonas is also a primal. Can't wait for that one!!!

Wanda October 1, 2009 at 1:16 PM  

Love the breeds because I can see men using DNA for evil
Mercury's War is my favorite breed
Jonas's story will be worth the wait.
I would love to read Dog's story.He is a true mystery.
Dylan would be my choice for a boy and Lark for a girl.
I have all your books and can't wait for the next ones to come out

Laney4 October 1, 2009 at 4:24 PM  

Hi!

I wish I could answer your questions, but, alas, I have not read your books yet to know those answers!

You did, however, mention a fortune cookie quote, so I thought I'd offer some more:

One who admires you greatly is hidden before your eyes.

Love is for the lucky and the brave.

Love is like wildflowers.... It is often found in the most unlikely places.

In the end there are three things that last: faith, hope and love; and the greatest of these is love.

Your heart will always make itself known through your words.

Love asks me no questions, and gives me endless support. Shakespeare

Have a great day, and "May Fortune always smile at you!"

Armenia October 1, 2009 at 6:17 PM  

Lora, I love your Nauti and Seals series, and slowly adding my collection to the Bound Heart series before I start on that one. I absolutely loved "Coopers Fall" in your anthology REAL MEN LAST ALL NIGHT.

To answer some of your questions:
1. Your heroes are dominating, sexy Alpha males that drip sensuality, and they are so devoted to their heroines when they finally fall in love. The HEA is so sweet, I am satisfied and will come back for more.

2. Name a breed child: Stone Fox

Congratulations on your release of HEAT SEEKER. I'm looking forward to reading it.

Daphne October 1, 2009 at 9:41 PM  

Hi!

I really enjoy your books. I think the emotional intensity that your work provides is what captures my attention. I also like the underlining themes of acceptance, love, honor, and respect that your work conveys as well.

My favorite series is the breed series followed by the Nauti Series. I am a scientist and I am just intrigue how the breed series gets my creative juices rolling (from a scientific angle).

My favoriate breed story is Coyote's Mate. I am definitely looking forward to seeing the following stories: Dane, Cassie, Brim, Jax, Dog, Rule, Lawe, and less not forget David. I think the Bindu, Jignasa, or Chara would be great girl names for a breed child. I also like Jon, Shariq, or Che for a boy name.

I hope you consider introducting a African American female to one of these breeds. I think AA female could definitely bring a new deminsion to the story. I think the dialogue alone would be interesting to say the least.

Best of Luck in your writings.

lizdial October 1, 2009 at 10:12 PM  

Lora, You are one of my favorite authors. I'm honored to answer your questions. I appreciate it when and author is interested in their readers' feed back.

1. The heavy angst-filled emotional content is always overwhelming. The way the characters love each other. An overpowering and incredibly powerful love. The way they express their love to each other, both verbally and physically. What leaves me "wanting more" is how you make us fall in love with the secondary characters around them and want their stories too. Its addictive!
2. My absolute favorite breed story was Dawn's story. I cried and ached so much during that story. I was in a fog for days after that one. I love Seth. Goodness, who did you model him after?! Tragic and triumphant story. Loved it. My favorite BH story was Wicked Pleasure. Cam and Jaci's story.... well, words fail me.
3. I'm sure alot of people are saying they want to read Cassie's story. I admit I do too. But I think I'm really craving Dane's story. He's so mysterious and sort of larger than life. I want to see him mated and in love. Maybe during that story we can get a little more of a taste from his Leo family too!
4. Noah, for a breed child.

Krew Kaptain October 2, 2009 at 2:31 AM  

LORA! Yay...I got your message through your MySpace blog, and immediately jumped over here. :o)

You probably already know that I LOVE your books...so, these questions will be a breeze to answer. Thank you SO much for being who you are and doing what you do! You give me the opportunity to go to bed with a smile.


1. I LOVE the unconditional devotion that your characters have for each other. That no matter what the odds...once they find each other, they can conqour anything. And for me, the most emotional depth is that...looks aren't everything. You make it real and believable, and prove just how deep love can really be! Which is a lot more then just the surface.

2. Dawn's Awakening...no doubt. This was my favorite because I was able to relate with Dawn on many levels...and the sensitively that Seth had for Dawn in his devotion to her brought me to heart stopping tears many times over. Everytime I read it. And yes, aside from Jonas...I am anxiously awaiting Cassie's story. :o)

3. Cassie

4. Boy~ Jager (like the drink...and Jag for short.)

Girl~ Horizon or Selah (Selah is my daughter's name...pronounced Say-la) :o)

Angela October 2, 2009 at 1:27 PM  

Hello Lora!

Just wanted to say LOVE your books. I have read all of your Navy Seal and Elite Ops books Maverick and Heat Seeker are amazing but I have to say Wild Card is my absolute favorite! Nathans and Sabella's story made me cry,(Iv never read a book that could do that) laugh, and scream out in frustration.

I just purchased one of your Bound Heart Series and I cant wait to finish reading it. I'm slowly adding to my collection! Sad to say though I have yet to read any of the Breed books but that is soon to change!

All of your characters have a devotion and passion that I cant get enough of. Their stories are unique and mesmerizing which makes me always come back for more.

Although Ive mentioned it a couple times on your myspace Ill say it again, I'm hoping for a story about Jordan Malone and Tehya. The two of them seem to just drive each other insane and I would love to see Jordan finally give in and claim what hes wanted since Ian Richards and Kira Porter's story Killer Secrets!

I was never a huge book reader until I got my hands on your books, so THANK YOU for giving me a hobby I can enjoy! Im looking forward to expanding my collection and cannot wait to see whats in store for the future!

I Heart Book Gossip October 2, 2009 at 6:18 PM

Dear Lora,
I would just like to say that I love your work. I stumbled upon one of your books by accident at the library. Megan's Mark was the first book I read and after that I've been hooked ever since. I've only recently been trying to backtrack to the beginging of the Breed Series. I've also reada few of your Tempting Seals Books and Elite Ops Novels. My favorite books are as of right now, Coyotes Mate and Wild Card.
Which Character's story would I like to read. I have a lot: Cassie, Dane, Dog, Lawe Justice, Ely and Jackel because I know he has to be her mate. And Rule Breaker.
For a Breed Girl: Rogue (Boy or Girl). Lena, Nalani, Sarai or Aislinn.
Boy: Hassan, Ace, Drake
Question: Are there any Black Breeds?

Dear Lora,

I love the breeds overwhelming courage to survive, the hope they have to find a place in this world, and the need they have to be loved.

My favorite book is Coyote's Mate. I am also looking forward to Jonas's story. You have given readers glimpses of his character, demonstrated his manipulations, revealed his vulnerability, and shown his capacity for tenderness. I am definitely intrigued by how Rachel will bring him to his knees. It’s time for karma to bite Jonas on the butt!

Besides Jonas, I would love to read a story about the rare coyote females, Emma perhaps? Or coyote breed Cavalier. I remember Anya believing he was dead inside but he proved this misconception wrong and was passionately loyal. I’m also curious about what happened to Honor Roberts? I also wouldn’t mind seeing Rule or Lawe getting the “heebie jeebies.”

I wouldn't want to name a breed child. I think the characters should surprise us and choose something meaningful to them.

Thanks Lora for the awesome stories!

1. Cliched as it sounds, what satisfies me most about your novels is the emotion. It is so well described to suit the characters that I feel what they're feeling but also remember the characters as real life people.

2. My favorite book was Wild Card and what I'm anxious for (after our very own Jonas' story) is Cassie's. Or Lawe or Rule...

3. If I could name a Breed child, it'd be Monica or Heaven for a girl and Chance or Zachary for a boy.

Thanks for writing such great stories, Lora! They always perk me up.

The thing I love about your books is the way they're written. I love the struggles they go through to realise that they are meant for each other. They leave me with a feeling of hope and reminding me of my own HEA. Even the toughest of men often fall the hardest.

My favourite book is my first which was Harmony's Way second would be Dawn's Awakening. I am longing for Jonas. Fell for him when I first read about him in Harmony's Way after what he did to her can't wait to see him get his karma mating wise. I am also intrigued by Dane he's gone the longest I think without a mate surely there's someone out there for him.

As for a breed name my cousin named his daughter Neveah which is Heaven backwards. Since then it's become popular here. I think it's a perfect breed name. After seeing the name in the comment above it reminded me of my cousins daughter.

Have to add that I loved the parts in Heatseeker that were set in Brisbane it was kind of surreal to actually know (cos that's where I grew up) the locations you were describing. It's not very often I read about near where I live and am actually familiar with the location. It was well done.

Hey ladies, what an awesome interview! Lora, especially thanks for taking the time right after your fab RAW weekend -- it sounds like it was a fantastic event!

I think the thing about your stories that touches me the most is the strength and depth of the emotional bond between the characters, as well as, of course, they way they show it in intimacy. Yours were the very first ebooks I ever bought, and I haven't looked back! Sacrifice is a personal favority -- whew -- talk about intensity!

Thanks again so much for being here!

1) What is it about my novels that touch you, what keeps you wanting more and leaving you emotionally satisfied?

--We live in a world where humanity isn't loyal to one another. The fact that your characters love each other and are faithful keep me coming back.

2) What Breed book is your favorite, or which one are you most looking forward to?
Aside from Jonas’ story, which character’s story would you most want to read next?

--I fell in love with Dawn's Awakening and I know Jonas' book will be my favourite when its released. But other Breed books- in the future and when he's grown up, I would like to read about Callan and Merinus' child. I unfortunately cannot remember if he is mated or not but I would really like to read more about Simon. Another would be Dane, I'm South African so that could be interesting.

If you had the chance to name a breed child, what would you name it?

--Well, I would love to hear my name or even nickname in a book,Michelle, but I won't be greedy. I only have male names to suggest for Breed children:
Mattheo
Lucius
Judas
Lucian
Cyrus

-- Lora thank you for writing your books, you have such a talent. Never stop writing.

1. Emotion from both characters, not just one sided, and the sensuality.

2. Favorite is the one I'm currently reading at any given time ;) But Mercury, Cabal and Nobel really stand out for me.

3. Love to see Keenan, Cian, or Dog & Brimstone.

4. Babies? Luke, Nick, Erik - unless of course you are going to use these names for heroes :)
But they'd be good future hero names too.

Oh, and I'd REALLY love to read Eli's story.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
