Welcome, I’m glad you’re here with me. Today, I’m hosting a good friend of mine and talented author, Eva LeNoir. Eva is a world traveler, currently resides in France. How awesome is that? She believes in women and their ability to walk hand in hand with any man and her characters echo this belief. So, join me in welcoming Eva LeNoir to My Blog. <claps hands>
1. What’s your favorite book that you’ve written and can you tell us why?
Why Karli…ALL OF THEM of course! That being said, Stone Cold holds a special place in my heart because Jared Stones drove me to drink. Quite literally.
Well, Eva, if you’re going to drink then France sounds like the ideal country to be in!
2. What’s your favorite book by another author?
Oh, wow. Just one? If I stay in the Romance world, I’ll have to say anything by C.d. Reiss. On a more general note, I might say The Great Gatsby. No, wait…Leviathan by Paul Auster. No, no…The Painted House by John Grisham. Oh, dang it.
3. Do you put your own life experiences into your writing or is it more research and imagination?
For this series, it’s definitely research and imagination. I’d love to take kickboxing classes and am planning on it this year (I hope). That being said, I think we always pour something of ourselves into each and every character.
4. If you knew that you would not make a dime from your writing, would you keep doing it? And if so, why?
Absolutely. Writing is my balance from a hectic life. It keeps me from going postal, most days.
5. How would you get rid of a million dollars that you couldn’t spend on yourself?
Hmmmmm… I would give that money to help research for all the rare diseases that are being ignored. I can understand that funding goes to research for the illnesses that kill the masses. However, my heart breaks every time I hear about anyone being completely helpless because of our lack of treatment for rare diseases.
6. What was your most exciting experience as an author you’ve had?
Meeting Sara Biblio (from The Bibliophile Blog) in NYC. I felt so loved
7. Can you tell us how you came up with the titles for your books?
A lot of brainstorming with my girl Kylie Gray.
8. Okay, you are standing in a line and you see a blind man drop a twenty and the woman behind him in line, pockets it. What do you do? What would one of your protagonist do?
I would politely let the woman know that she needed to hand over the cash, making sure that everyone could hear me. Ellen? She’d probably kick her ass and skip the whole annoying-questions thing.
9. What is the craziest idea, dream, concept that you’ve had for a book? Will you write it?
I want to write about Corsica, my home…my roots. The story is about the mafia that rules our world over there but the thing is…I already know the readers are going to hate me. The problem is that I can’t write it any other way. I know, it’s all very vague but you ain’t getting more outta me, chica!
Well, with that little tidbit, I am hooked girl!
10. Looking ahead, what project is at the top of your writing list?
And do you have a playlist and images for your main characters?
I have 3 projects staring me straight in the face. Deadlines with all of them. As far as playlists are concerned, I have songs that I listen to while I drive and those are usually inspirations to certain scenes. Oddly enough, I get a great deal of my scenes either in the shower or while I’m writing. The problem is that I have a hard time remembering which songs did what so I never list them. I do have images on my Author page, absolutely!
Thank you so much for having me, Karli.
Eva, thank you for being here today and for sharing your work with us! We look forward to your next release. ❤
As a young independent vampire, Ellen Banks takes the ring, and all eyes are on her. The lithe rebel has worked hard to get to this one moment in her less-than-stellar life. No one will stand in her way of that championship belt, especially not the powerful and impossibly salacious Nash Stanford. If only her traitorous body’s reaction would shut the hell up.
Heated one night sessions between the sheets, the handsome yet arrogant Jared Stones spends his days training Ellen Banks. When a blast from the past appears, unannounced and more importantly uninvited, all hell breaks loose.
Sister to the Alpha of her pack, Sloane Pierce is convinced by long time friend, Ellen that her presence is required. Every one of her primal instincts warns of that outcome, deadly at best. Unable to say no, she is dragged by a wild and forceful fate that has other ideas. Is destiny on their side or will history repeat itself like all the other times.
As the attacks continue against Nash Stanford and the members of his underground arena, one key element to the mystery suddenly disappears.
Kyle Pearce finds himself in an unknown location and in the presence of an unknown female when he wakes from a dreamless sleep. But as the pieces of the puzzle slowly come together, he is faced with an unrelenting desire for his sweet, caring and simply amazing kidnapper. One problem, she is not a shifter, she is not a wolf.
Aishlyn O’Shea had been raised to follow her father’s instructions to the tee…until now. Completely enthralled with the alpha that now resides in her home, she fights the onslaught of dark desires that seem to attack her every nerve ending. Unfortunately for her, Kyle Pearce is forbidden fruit, no matter how much she yearns to sink her teeth into his delectable flesh.
How can there ever be future together for this unlikely couple when the obstacles keep piling up against them?
