Special Guest - Erzabet Bishop


Please welcome my pal Erzabet to my blog today with her new book Yuletide Temptation.




BLURB

Jasmin is rocking the Yuletide season as she oversees the party for Morrigan's Promise with Brigit and Julia.  Shane, her old school girl crush is back in town. When she goes to talk with him about decorations for the event, his large dog greets her instead, letting loose some holiday mischief.

When Jasmin realizes that Shane doesn't remember her at all, she refuses his help and leaves. A little intervention from her friends and some Yuletide magic help the lovers connect, only to fall apart again with a heated misunderstanding.

Will Shane accept Jasmin being a witch? Can Jasmin learn to conquer her fear of dogs? Will they both give into the passion that will bind them as lovers?

A little mistletoe and a bag of dog biscuits might just seal the deal, helping them give in to Yuletide Temptation.

Get a taste of short, snack sized holiday witchery for just .99 at ARE and NNP through the month of December. All books in the Erotic Pagan Series are on sale. Treat yourself today. 


Excerpt:

“What do you mean he’s gone?” Julia sat the plates on the table and stared after the front door.
“What happened?” Brigit frowned.
“I’m a witch.” Jasmin stood up and numbly began to remove the table linens from what normally was their work table.
“Oh, a shock indeed.” Brigit smirked.
“Well it was to him apparently.” Tears threatened, and Jasmin blinked them away, flushing miserably.
“But his mother was part of the original coven. Didn’t he know that?” Brigit patted Jasmin’s back thoughtfully. “I wonder if she didn’t tell him.”
“Well, maybe he just doesn’t understand.” Julia interjected. “When Brigit first told me, I didn’t know what to expect. It didn’t take much to feel right at home. I saw how you live and now here I am, for keeps. A lot of people misunderstand.”
Jasmin nodded gloomily. “I bet he thinks we kill chickens in the living room.”
“Do you care what he thinks, Jas?” Brigit pressed her lips into a firm line. “If you don’t then now is the time to walk away. If he matters, then you know what you have to do.”
“What?” Jasmin blinked.
“You have to fight fire with fire, girl. I’ve seen you staring after him through the shop window when you didn’t think I was looking.” Brigit winked and elbowed Julia, nudging her toward the kitchen.
“Oh! Absolutely. Hold on a minute.” Julia grinned and scurried off.
Jasmin arched a delicately shaped eyebrow. “What are you up to?”
“Here!” Julia ran back into the dining area sans work space and presented Jasmin with a cellophane gift bag full of dog treats tied with a swirl of red and green ribbons.
“What do I do with this?” The bag crinkled as Jasmin took it.
“You corner the lion in his den and decide once and for all if you want to collar him.” Brigit smiled, her lips turned up in a devious twist. “Then you lay one on him he’ll never forget.”
“But he already walked away once. Am I supposed to be humiliated again?” Jasmin crossed her arms under her breasts and huffed.
“You? No way. I don’t know if you know, Jas, but that man has been staring after you every chance he gets since he got into town. Despite what he said, he has it bad.”
Yuletide fun facts:
“Deck the Halls” is one of my favorite holiday songs and is mentioned in the story.
The use of the sun in holiday ornaments signifies the coming of the light at the end of the darkest time of the year.
Many current religious practices derived from Pagan roots.


Listen to a full reading of Samhain Shadows!

I've managed to pin Erzabet down for a few questions... here goes...

Describe your novel in seven words or less?

Jamin finds love at Yuletide.

What was your inspiration?

I love writing about witchy characters and in my Erotic Pagan Series, I am writing about the beauty of Pagan culture with a bit of spice thrown in for good measure. Who doesn’t like a short snack sized bit of sizzle now and again?

Did you have to do much if any research?

Some. I love Yuletide, but I am always on the hunt to see if any new recipes or little factual tidbits can help make the story stand out more.

Fictional crush?

I love all my characters. Lol.

When did you starting writing erotic fiction?

About a year ago and it has been a nonstop roller coaster of fun ever since.

What is the most erotic sex scene you have ever written or read?

Oh wow. I think it would have to be anything by Violet Blue. Her collections curl my toes, especially Voracious.

Which of the characters in and of yours book would you most want to run away with for a weekend?

I would love to run away with the gang from my Erotic Pagan Series. Those folks know how to party. I also wouldn’t mind going for a crochet class with the characters from my story “Hooked” in Anything She Wants.

What does 2014 hold in store for you and your writing?

It is going to be a busy year.  I will be working toward writing some longer novellas/novels under my pen name and my YA persona. Meanwhile, I will be continuing my Erotic Pagan Series short stories with some new holidays, a mermaid cruise ship story similar to the one that will be coming out in A Christmas to Remember, several Cleis anthology releases, my urban fantasy novella from Ylva called Sigil Fire and it’s sequel which is still very much in the planning stages. I also have several other top secret projects in the works, so please sign up to follow my blog and like my Facebook page to keep up with it all.
