With her old pack dead and buried wolf shifter Joy Sutherland leaves her beloved Akino lands to seek refuge with the Eryma pack of Timmins. When she discovers Warren, her new Alpha, is also a Dom with the skills to handle her, hope flares to life. But if she can’t convince the rest of the pack to accept her, she—and her wolf—could lose their mate forever.
By the time he got there, she was already changed and warming up. She had boxing gloves on, of all things. Couldn’t she just go for a jog on the treadmill or something? No, she had to be smack dab in the middle of other males, hopping around like fucking Muhammad Ali with her hands jabbing into the air and her breasts bouncing around with every damned move she made.
He had to admit she looked pretty damned hot doing it in her tight little tank top and low riding sweats, though. Unfortunately, he wasn’t the only one noticing. “Keep them off her,” he growled at Max as he headed into the changing room.
Born of snow and ice, or at least near snow and ice in Ontario, Canada, Élianne Adams has always enjoyed curling up with a good book and warm blanket. Even before she really knew what love was, she dreamed of writing her own stories, but it wasn`t until her very own hero encouraged her to follow her lifelong dream that she put the words begging to be told onto paper.
When Élianne isn`t reading or writing, she can be found spending time with her husband, three children and their three pets.
Hello Elianne Adams! Thank you for being here today!
Thank you so much for having me here today. I’m thrilled to be here to celebrate the release of Alpha Heat. My inclusion, Alpha’s Temptation gives you a quick glimpse of our Hero, Warren, as he gives his mate a sexy boxing lesson.
Love it!!! Let’s get started!
How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’m a relatively new writer. Sometimes I feel like a bit of a poser hanging out with such great authors like the ones in this set. I always wanted to write, and even back when I was a teen, it was always romance that drew me in, but
it wasn’t until about five years ago that a friend of mine introduced me to the world of Paranormal Romance. Now I’m hooked. I read it, write it, live it, breathe it. It’s a problem, really, but since it’s not recognized as a true addiction, I’ve learned to live with it.
What are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
The best aspect of writing for me has to be the freedom of letting my imagination run wild. I’m a total pantser when it comes to writing. I sometimes wish I wasn’t, but plotting just seems to bog me down. When I sit at my computer and let my fingers fly, I get lost in my own world of make believe. It’s just so much fun.
The worst? It has to be when I’m sitting in front of my computer and staring at the screen. That usually means I’ve done something to upset my characters and they’ve stopped talking to me. Until I fix the issue, they won’t let me move forward. They’re quite finicky that way.
What inspires you to write?
I often find inspiration in music. I like to play songs that tear at my heart strings when my heroes and heroines are going through a rough patch. Otherwise, just life in general. I will see something in real life, then my brain kicks in and says… “Yeah, that would make a good story.” Of course, I add dragons and wolves to the mix.
What is the title of your story included in Alpha Fever? How did you come up with this story?
My contribution to this amazing set is called Alpha’s Temptation. The story actually came from an idea I had months ago, but due to prior commitments, I hadn’t had the chance to explore yet. As a reader, I like to vary the heat levels in the romance I read, so when the opportunity came up to submit a story that was hotter than what I normally write, I couldn’t pass it up.
How did you conduct your research for Alpha’s Temptation?
Oh my, what a loaded question. Lol Since I’d never written anything with BDSM elements, I spent hours doing online research in the hopes of getting the terminology right and seeing how things are done. I asked a few friends who were more knowledgeable that I am, and there you have it. I’ll admit, my husband gave me a couple of odd looks when he saw what I was looking at late one night.
What are 3 of your favorite lines/quotes from Alpha’s Temptation?
She had to be smack dab in the middle of other males, hopping around like fucking Muhammad Ali.
He should have kept his fucking jeans on. At least he could pretend the raging hard on tenting his sweats didn’t exist.
His voice rumbled deep and sexy right next to her ear. His hot breath fanned her neck, sending a shiver straight through her.
What would your friends say is your best quality?
So, I asked my best friend, who happens to be my hubby, and I’m not even going to say what his first answer was. lol After his initial reaction, he said the next thing was my kindness.
Are reader reviews important to you?
Reader reviews are so, so important to me. Not only does it help bring light to my stories, but it helps me understand what readers are looking for in their paranormal romance. Any feedback, good or bad helps me focus my work so that I can bring more of what readers love onto the pages of my books, and less of what they don’t.
Do you have any blogs/websites?
I sure do! My author website is www.elianneadams.com. Here you can find all the most current information on the books I have out and what I’m working on. I often post contests and promotions on there as well so that I can interact with the readers.
I also run a website dedicated to paranormal romance called Paranormal Romance Lovers. There’s always some fun stuff going on there like chances for readers to win prizes and learn about all the great new paranormal romance books out there. Readers can check it out at www.pnrlovers.com.
What do you do when you don’t write?
I’m always busy doing something. When I’m not writing, I like to spend as much time as I can with my family. I’ll be honest though and say that when I’m not writing, I’m usually thinking about writing, working on scenes in my head, or looking up inspirational pics (naked chested men work well😉 ).
Tell us about your other books?
I usually write about sexy dragon shifters. My first series, Return to Avalore, actually features dragon, phoenix, and gryphon shifters. The stories are set is a mystical place called Avalore, where one woman rules and keeps the balance between good and evil. When dark creatures threaten the Avalorians’ very existence, the men step in and all kinds of sexiness ensues.
The second consists of pure dragon shifter goodness. My Dragon Blood series consists of novella length stories of sexy alpha males and the mates that tame them.
Alpha’s Temptation is my first foray into the world of wolf shifters. I absolutely loved writing this even though it wasn’t quite in my wheel house. This short story is a little peek into Warren and Joy’s beginning. A sexy boxing lesson, an alpha who can barely contain his desires, and the woman who drives him wild all wrapped up into one sexy story.
If you could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be?
It would be that I love it when readers reach out to me. I try really hard to respond to all e-mail each day. It’s not always a long note, but a few words to acknowledge that I’ve read their e-mail and appreciate their support of my books.
Thank you so much for letting me come on and share this story with your readers. It was so much fun to write and to be surrounded with such a stellar group of authors as those in Alpha Fever has been amazing.
Thank you Elianne! We look forward to hearing more from you!
