Tagline: A chance meeting at a sweet shop...Can it be love?
Blurb: Jenna Stevens wasn’t looking for love nor did she believe it would walk into her life one holiday season. Marc du Bree needs to find his destined mate so he can take over the family duties from his father. Meeting Jenna, Marc finds the connection he has been searching for. Can he convince this gun shy woman that his love is indeed true?
What are your main characters' names, ages, and occupations?
Jenna Stevens is co-owner of The Candy Kisses Sweet Shoppe. She is in her mid-30’s.
Marc du Bree is a Sex Mage and his magic renews itself through sexual energy. He works in the family business that has a variety of ventures, from private hotels to high-end boutiques. He lives in Europe and is 35 years old.
Groaning, Marc couldn’t believe the erotic picture he saw with Jenna sliding her hands up around his cock. Closing his eyes in the ecstasy of her touch and talented tongue had him almost coming right then and there if not for sheer will power on his behalf.
“Please, sweetheart, enough, or I am going to come all over myself.” Marc huskily said as he pulled her up along himself.
Jenna leaned down and kissed him sweetly as she sat up and positioned herself over his straining cock. She tenderly slid down inch by inch, and his hardness was welcomed in the velvet wetness of her pussy, gripping him in anticipation only he could deliver. Groaning, Marc restrained himself from slamming into her as his eyes started to light up again.
Soon, he was encased in Jenna’s pussy and as she began to get her rhythm, Marc teased her nipples with light tugging and teasing, forcing a husky, desire-laden groan from her. “Let it go, mia cara. Let me feel you come over my cock.” Marc said as he heard, then felt, her orgasm scream through her. Feeling her pussy walls tighten and grip his cock had Marc thrusting faster until he moaned with desire as his orgasm literally overflowed Jenna’s pussy.
Panting softly, Jenna slumped over his body, exhausted and still trembling from the effects of their joining. She turned her head and kissed Marc’s shoulder as she tumbled into sleep.
“Ahhh, cara mia, you delight me.” Marc said as he ran a hand from the nape of her neck to her hip. Making sure she was comfortable, he tumbled off to sleep as well, content in knowing she was right there beside him forever.

Tell us about your latest book, including its genre. Does it cross over to other genres? If so, what are they?
Sticky Magic is my first book in the Devon Falls series and I am currently working simultaneously on books 6 & 7. It is a paranormal contemporary erotic Romance set around Christmas. I love this one the most since it was my ‘baby’ so to speak. It was this book that introduced readers to the town of Devon Falls and all who populate it.
How do you come up with ideas?
Anything inspires me, a song lyric, n article online, an event or personality quirk of a friend.
Where do you start when writing? Research, plotting, outline, or...?
Actually I start from the book blurb and let it run from there. I have stories that had inspiration from a song lyric, an article online or a random thing that happened to me or someone I knew.
Would you consider self publishing?
Actually I ventured in self-publishing in June 2012 with about 9 other authors in an anthology. I knew I wasn’t going to get rich from it but it was so much fun. We are doing another anthology in end of January 2013 for Valentine’s Day. I also have an idea for a Christmas Western M/M I am going to polish and give it away as a free read too! I am actually eager to explore more of the Self-Publishing world.
How many hours a day to you spend writing?
It is a little hard right now as I try to carve out time from my three day jobs for family time and personal time for myself. I write when I can get a spare 30 minutes here and there.
Is your muse demanding?
My muse is a slave driver. *sighs* I am trying to finish three books I am deadline on and he gives me five more ideas. *grumbles* The man must think I can clone myself to get them all done.
Are your stories driven by plot or character?
I would like to think by the characters themselves. *smiles* I am not big on creating a huge plot though I love reading those stories, and concentrate on the characters. I let them tell me what I need to write and fill in all the holes later on.
How do you balance a life outside of writing with deadlines and writing muses?
With a heck a lot of coffee! I try to write when my kids are in school or after they are in bed. I try to give me two days off a week and let myself relax, recharge and read some of my favorite books or watch my favorite TV Shows on DVD.
What are some jobs you've done that would end up in a book?
*laughs* I used to work in two bakeries so that made it in Fiery Magic for Alicia’s Café/bakery shop called the Dew Drop. I also knew of a man who made his own chocolate in my hometown and that was the basis for Jenna’s shop in Sticky Magic.
If I was a first time reader of your books, which one would you recommend I start with and why?
Depending on your interests, I got five books set in paranormal genre and one in M/M right now. If you like series books, I recommend Sticky Magic as it introduces you to Devon Falls, some of the people there and lets you fall in love with them.
What do you hope readers take with them after reading your work?
That romance is universal. I am a big romantic so my stories have Happily For Now or Happily Ever After endings. If I can’t help giving you a cliffhanger ending then be aware I do my best in finishing the storyline up in the next book.
List two authors we would find you reading when taking a break from your own writing.
Oh man so many to choose from but right now I am immersed in Andrew Grey’s and Sue Brown’s books though I have many more to enjoy if the mood calls me to it.
If money were not an object, where would you most like to live?
Either the wilds of Scotland or Ireland to Italy and the Meditterarian coast
What song would best describe your life?
It’s my Life by Bon Jovi *grins* I am at that age where people who disapprove of me and my choices are better off not being acknowledged anymore. My happiness lies in myself, my partner, and my two kids. No one else.
If you came with a warning label, what would it say?
Give her the coffee and back away…slowly and you won’t be eaten.
Please Fill in the Blanks
I love pizza with mushrooms and pepperoni.
I'm always ready for guests as I always have cookies, homemade dessert bread or other items ready for guests to enjoy if they pop in.
When I'm alone, I enjoy curling up under a cozy blanket, with music playing softly and reading till the wee hours of the morning.
You'd never be able to tell, but I have scars on the side of my head from when I had cervical spine cancer and if you shaved my right side of my head you will find the road mark of scars there.
If I had a halo it would be tarnished as my devil horns tried to get through it.
If I could not gain an ounce I'd eat cheesecake from cheesecake factory forever.
I can never read just one more page because I have this impatience to see what happens next!
