Synopsis:
Horatia Sheridan has been hopelessly in love with Lucien, her brother’s best friend, ever since he rescued her from the broken remains of her parents’ wrecked carriage. His reputation as London’s most notorious rakehell doesn’t frighten her, for under his veneer of cool authority she has glimpsed a man whose wicked desires inspire her own. Lucien, Marquess of Rochester, has deliberately nurtured a reputation for debauchery that makes every matchmaking mother of the ton quake with fear.

Interview with fantasy author Debbie Peterson

Welcome, Readers!

I’m happy to be the kick-off stop for Debbie Peterson’s virtual book tour for her fantasy paranormal romance novel Shadow of the Witte Wieven (2nd edition).

During her tour with Goddess Fish Promotions, Debbie will be awarding a lucky winner with a $15 Amazon gift card. To be entered for a chance to win, use the form below. To increase your chances of winning, feel free to visit her other tour stops and enter there, too!

Bio:

Debbie has always had a soft spot for fairy tales, the joy of falling in love, and happily ever after endings. Stories of love and make believe filled her head for as long as she can remember. However, it was her beloved husband who encouraged, cajoled and inspired her to take up a pen and write some of them down. Her journey to published author could fill quite a few pages. However, in June of 2010, she submitted her debut novel “Spirit of the Rebellion” to her wonderful, patient, editor at The Wild Rose Press and the rest is history. She now has five published novels to her credit, with a sixth due out in the coming year.

When she is not busy conjuring her latest novel, Debbie spends time with the members of her very large family, within the lovely, arid deserts of southern Nevada. She also pursues her interests in family history, mythology, and all things ancient and historic.
Welcome, Debbie. Please tell us about your current release, Shadow of the Witte Wieven.

Despite a contract on her head, lone Drug Enforcement Agent, Aliyana Montijo must ferret out a mole and stop the assassination of top DEA officials, as so ordered by the Colombian drug lord she seeks to take down. The task is a daunting one, for there is no one she can trust. No one that is, until she encounters a most unlikely ally.

Former seventeenth century captain of the Dutch West Indies Company, Wolfaert Dircksen Van Ness, now from a parallel dimension, encounters the beautiful agent during an unearthly storm in the Bermuda triangle. Drawn to the Spanish beauty he rescues, he pledges his assistance, despite her reluctance to accept either his help or his heart.

Wolf must bridge both space and time to claim the woman he loves.

Excerpt from Shadow of the Witte Wieven:
“Are you going to answer the question, or are you not?” he quipped, ignoring her comment

altogether.

“Ooh! Tu’ eres el hombre más exasperante que he tenido la desgracia de conocer!” she huffed as she folded her arms and slammed them hard against her chest.

“Sorry?” His eyes danced with sudden merriment, while his lips twitched in amusement. “I

didn’t quite catch all that!”

In response to his mirth, she once again clenched her teeth. She could feel her cheeks flame as she jerked a pointed a finger toward his chest. “I said, you are the most exasperating man I’ve ever had the misfortune—”

The moment she drove her finger forward, her words abruptly ended and so did his mirth.

Aliyana touched the tip of her tongue to her lips as she stared at what she could see of her finger. She slowly withdrew it from inside his chest, gazed at the digit, repeated her actions once more, and then gazed into his sky-blue eyes.

“Aliyana,” Wolf whispered. “Don’t be afraid of me. This isn’t what you think.”

She struggled to make sense of this new quandary. Her bewildered gaze shifted to his arms

that still held her fast, traveled their length, and then rose to his face. Her lovely eyes, filled with such delightful indignation a moment ago, now held a trace of apprehension.

“Who are you?” she asked in a voice just audible to his ears. “Better yet, what are you?”

What exciting story are you working on next?
Court of the Hawk is my next release and is currently in the pre-galley stages. This fantasy romance pairs a modern day epigraphist with a 13th century Lord who rules an ancient Welsh kingdom hidden from the world.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I have always enjoyed writing. Yet, I don’t think I truly considered myself a writer until I signed my first contract with The Wild Rose Press.

Do you write full-time? If so, what’s your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?

I do write full time, however my hours are never cut in stone. Sometimes I am up at 5:00 a.m., typing away. There are also times that I am up past midnight. When the words are flowing I write them. When they’re not, I do the other things that need doing.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I don’t know if it’s really a quirk, but I do have to have music playing that matches the scenes I am writing. Most of the music I listen to is instrumental and generally comes from various movie scores. Oh, and I also have to have my ice-water and either cinnamon bears or hot tamales readily available!

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Oh, I had quite a list! I wanted to be a teacher, a nurse, and a rodeo rider, just to name a few. I think that’s why I love writing. I give all of my heroines a different, interesting career and then I get to live it along with them while I write their story…

The Excerpt:

Wolf stood at the helm, his gaze fixed, but not seeing. The fierce wind they’d battled during the storm finally abated. Yet, it continued to haunt him. More than once, he fancied he heard the sound of her voice in the billowing breeze. Each time the experience renewed his pain. He shook his head in despair, took in a deep breath of salty air, and slowly released it.

“Oh, Wolf! You promised you wouldn’t leave me… You promised…”

Those words echoed first inside his mind, and then resounded throughout his entire being. This time, he could hear her anguish and it matched his own.

“Please. Please don’t leave me…” a heart-wrenching sob followed the mournful words

Call him crazy, but those pitiful words sounded as if they drifted into his mind from the west. His heart pounded against his chest as he mulled over a possible reason for the strange phenomena. He tossed it aside as absurd. For surely he wanted to believe so much that she didn’t perish in Cartagena— Wolf paused and for a moment, he reconsidered the impossible notion. But then again, he’d seen impossible before in the guise of a lovely witch. Suddenly, he had to know.

He whirled the wheel all the way to the right, turning headlong into a favorable wind. One way or the other, he needed to find out if Aliyana still lived. Startled gazes shot toward him as they abruptly changed direction.

“Wolf! What do you think you’re doing?” Joris hollered as he strode toward him. He could see the concern etched in his face.

He firmed his jaw and said, “I’m going after Aliyana.”

The Rake’s HandbookThe Rake’s Handbook (Including Field Guide)

By Sally Orr

Sourcebooks Casablanca

November 4, 2014

$7.99/£5.99

Summary:

The definitive guide to seduction…

The Rake’s Handbook was written on a dare, and soon took the ton by storm. Now its author, Ross Thornbury, is publicly reviled by the ladies—who are, of course, forbidden to read the handbook—but privately revered by the gentlemen. Unfortunately, Ross’s notoriety is working against him and he flees London painfully aware of the shortcomings of his own jaded heart.

Spirited young widow Elinor Colton lives next to Ross’s country estate. She’s appalled not only by his rakish reputation, but also by his progressive industrial plans. Elinor is sure she is immune to Ross’s seductive ways. But he keeps coming around…impressing her with his vision for England’s future and stunning her with his smiles.

How does one resist the man who wrote the manual on love?
