Guest Blog with Roxanne Rhoads and a Chance to Win a Free Ebook
My name is Roxanne Rhoads and I am happy to be here today at the Romance Junkies Blog. I am making the rounds on a mini blog tour to celebrate the release of my newest e-book Torrid Teasers Volume 59 released through WhiskeyCreekPressTorrid.com.
Torrid Teasers #59 is a double shot of paranormal sexiness. It contains two of my paranormal erotic romance stories, The Questioning Concubine and Renata.
Here are the mini blurbs for the stories in Torrid Teasers Volume 59.
The residents of the sleepy little town of Flushing, Michigan had no idea a vampire lived among them seducing and drinking from all the men in town. Renata walked among them, blending in, taking only what she needed. One night Renata was on the prowl for fresh blood at a carnival when a handsome carnie caught her eyes. She had no way of knowing he was there for her.
The Questioning Concubine:
Elita, a pure blood witch has come home to find who or what killed her parents and to take her place as the head of the coven. After 5 years of investigating and exhausting all conventional methods at her disposal she decides to do the one thing a good witch should never do, summon a demon. The demon is not what she expected. Elita is soon swept up in his power… and her own.
Both stories take place in the quaint town of Flushing, Michigan. A very real place though I have fictionalized the paranormal creatures that live in what I call Storybookville. Maybe.
I live right outside Flushing, just outside enough to be an outsider but close enough that most of the businesses and stores that I frequent are in Flushing. Main street consists of old Victorian style homes and the brick building store fronts that can be found in old small towns around the country.
I fell in love with the place as a child but always felt like an outsider. It has such great qualities that it makes a fantastic setting for stories of any nature but I love the little perversion of turning such story book perfection into a setting for erotic paranormal creatures to cavort shamelessly.
That gives you a peak into my personality doesn’t it? Perverting the perfect. But there is always something hidden under any layer of perfection. I am sure my fictional perversions can’t even compare to what really lies behind closed doors.
Truth is often stranger than fiction, believe me I know. My truths have often been so unbelievable I question my own life. And others…well they just flat out don’t believe me. So I keep things to myself or insert them into my fiction. Then people don’t question anything and it often makes for a good story. You never know what small snippets or strange little elements in my stories may actually hold a grain of truth.
In addtion to my newest release from Whiskey Creek Press Torrid, I have a short story, Tasty Christmas Treats, available in ebook and print through EternalPress.ca as well as two short paranormal pieces in the Paranormal Bedtime Stories collection also available at EternalPress.ca.
My short story “The First Brick” appears in the ebook Lasting Lust: Kinky Couples in Love available at RavenousRomance.com. And I have two novellas being released later this year through Eternal Press, Eternal Desire will be out in October and Insatiable in December.
You can find my articles and poetry around the web and keep track of me at my sites Roxanne’s Realm and Fang-tastic Books.

Thanks for the suggestions shared using your blog. Something else I would like to express is that losing weight is not information on going on a celebrity diet and trying to get rid of as much weight as you’re able in a few months. The most effective way to burn fat is by using it slowly but surely and obeying some basic tips which can enable you to make the most from your attempt to shed weight. You may understand and be following a few of these tips, yet reinforcing awareness never does any damage.
That’s so true.
That’s so true.
That’s so true.
Thank you again Roxanne!

I am from Flint, Michigan. I love Bronners too. It is a fabulous Christmas store. I love to read your Torrid Teaser Volume 59 e-book. Have a great day!
Thank you for posting the excerpts. I love learning about new authors and adding to my desert island keeper collection.

Me…me…I love hot, steamy paranormal. It sounds like an interesting read. My sister-in-law lives in Michigan and its very green and lovely. But can’t imagine the winters there…burrr.
Thanks again for the giveaway.

Bronners is still open, Mr Bronner passed away last year (I think it was last year, maybe year before) but his family still keeps the place open.
It’s sad though, Br Bronner (the founder) was there every day. That store was his baby and you could always find him walking around and talking to guests. My family had a photo taken with him once when we were there. He was an icon. Almost like Santa himself.
Thanks to all who dropped by to read my post and comment. Love to hear what people think. We writers live off it. 🙂 I hope anyone who reads Torrid Teasers Volume 59 really enjoys it. And please drop by Roxanne’s Realm http://www.roxannesrealm.blogspot.com and leave some comments or feedaback or feel free to email me at eroticroxanne at yahoo dot com
The synopsis of the book sounds really nice 🙂

I love the interview. Read the blurb for the book on your site and it definitely sounds interesting and I would love to check it out.
I love paranormal books, especially hot ones! Love vamps and witches. Sounds like some great reads.
I thought Bonner’s was closed. Thanks for letting me know it isn’t. My mom would buy Christmas ornaments from them that have legends or historical meaning attached to the symbols.

Great post! Thanks for the chance to win!
You are so right, truth is often stranger than fiction but people doesn’t believe it. Your stories sounds very interesting.
Frankenmuth is the biggest tourist attraction in Michigan. Bronners is the biggest Christmas store in the US maybe the world. We visit Frankenmuth at least once a year, fun place, always having some kind of festival going on.
Though I am not a lover of vampire books, the first one sounds interesting and your second book I think I would like to read it.
I had relatives who used to live outside Flint, MI and on our way down we used to love to visit Frankenmouth. Ihope I spelled that right. I have some lovely Xmas decoration I bought there that I have had for over 30 yrs..
