Fiery Nights

#Playlist for Fiery Nights by Lisa Carlisle – Underground Encounters series

Since I love listening to music while writing, especially if it strikes a tone with a certain character, I like to include playlists for readers on my site. Since the Underground Encounters series is set in a club, music plays throughout. I just updated my Spotify playlist for Fiery Nights. Here it is:

“There is steamy sizzling hotness and then totally pure romance that makes you awww out loud! The HEA (Happily Ever After) is one of the best I’ve read and I highly recommend this story to anyone and everyone! ~ Satin Sheets Romance

“Fiery Nights is an imaginative tale about witches and elementals, vampires and plain old creepy people… the plot was entertaining, the setting was well defined and the sex scenes were yummy.” ~ You Gotta Read.

#Halloween is Coming! Fiery Nights by Lisa Carlisle

It’s October 1st, which means Halloween is only 30 days away! This is my official day I can start decorating the house with all sorts of spooky fun. Every year, I add more bats, gargoyles, and other dark decor.

My paranormal erotic romance Fiery Nights opens on Halloween night. Maya has spent the past several months holed up in her apartment, only leaving to work as a firefighter or go on a few crappy dates. When Halloween comes around, she dresses up as a pirate wench to go to her old favorite haunt, an underground Goth nightclub, Vamps. When she meets the new owner, Tristan Stone, her nights of solitude are replaced by nights of passion, heartache, and self-discovery both in understanding her own powers and Tristan’s dark abilities.

Excerpt

When I heard a remix of Type O Negative’s Cinnamon Girl, I left my drink at the bar to slink my way amid the gyrating bodies. My favorite band, one of my favorite songs. Tragic that the super-hot singer died so young.

In a sea of black-clad bodies, I blended right in. It had been months since I danced, but I quickly found my rhythm and lost myself in the music, dancing with the crowd. I didn’t feel the least bit self-conscious that I was alone.

That is—until I felt his eyes on me.

You know the feeling when someone is watching you and you’re suddenly aware of it? I felt that and looked up. A tall guy dressed all in black—naturally—stood alone at the right side of the bar.

Something about that gaze arrested me and I stopped dancing. Dark eyes, almost black, on a face that looked as angelic as a young Jim Morrison. The black hair was a devil-may-care length, past his chin but not quite to his shoulders. Instead of the rock star’s signature black leather pants, this guy was wearing a cape over dark clothing.

His eyes defied the angelic appearance. Dark, penetrating eyes. The eyes of someone who was troubled—maybe haunted.

Why was he staring at me like that? Didn’t he know my weakness was a dark, brooding bad boy?

My lips parted as if they wanted to say something. But what did I want to say? And he couldn’t hear me anyway.

And then with a swoop of his cape, he was gone.

I stood there for a few more moments trying to process what just happened. Was some hot guy in the corner watching me? Who then took off with a flourish of his cape?

It seemed very Bela Lugosi-ish—another dark, brooding bad boy. I tried to shake off my confusion as Cinnamon Girl ended.

The DJ mixed in a version of David Bowie and Trent Reznor’s I’m Afraid of Americans. It took me another moment or two to brush off the effect that dark stranger had on me. I thought to hell with that guy and then got back into my groove.

Lisa Carlisle’s Stop on the Bad Boys Hop

Bad Boys… can’t resist them. Definitely my type when I was younger.

But yikes, they’re bad for a reason–they’re trouble!

Two of my main characters in recent books are bad boys. In Bloodlust and Metal, Devon is a shapeshifting bounty hunter out for numero uno.  In Rock Me Tonight, Nico is a software engineer by day, but a singer of a hard rock band by night.

Leave a comment and enter with Rafflecopter below for a digital copy of one of these two new releases! Let me know which bad boy appeals to you more–Nico or Devon–and why. One lucky winner will win a digital copy of either Rock Me Tonight or Bloodlust or Metal.

Bloodlust and Metal

Book 4 in the Underground Encounters series

On the run from a master vampire, young vampire Layla Black flees London to reinvent herself as the singer of an Eighties cover band in Boston. Devon St. Clair is the bounty hunter hired to track her down. As a shapeshifter with extraordinary skills, his reputation is known throughout the supernatural world. Capturing Layla should be an easy gig that will net a nice profit.

The situation doesn’t go as Devon plans. He wants Layla in his bed, but shapeshifters and vampires don’t mix. They should hate each other, but instead they’re keeping the sheets steamy. When circumstances force them on the run together, their preconceived notions are challenged. If they can evade those hunting them and convince his fellow shapeshifters to help her even though she’s a vampire, they just might have a chance to explore where all that hot, sweaty sex can take them.

Third in the Underground Encounters series

Lily Everett wants a lover, but won’t consider a permanent relationship, because she harbors a secret she’s certain no one will understand. When she meets the singer of a rock band at an underground nightclub, she’s disarmed by his sensual voice and mischievous good looks. After an icy introduction, Lily warms up to Nico’s charms.

A computer geek by day, Nico dons a rock singer persona by night. He’s tired of women pursuing him just because he’s in a band—the sex may be handy, but he wants something more. He’s intrigued by Lily’s reticence.

Keeping her emotional distance proves difficult the more Lily uncovers the intelligent, considerate man hiding behind Nico’s bad-boy persona. Their encounters are hot-hot-hot, but Nico wants more from Lily than sex. When Lily lets down her guard and reveals her other side, Nico’s shock destroys their closeness and they both doubt they can overcome their differences.

5* Reviews for Smoldering Nights and Fiery Nights by Lisa Carlisle

I’m thrilled to share Cornelia Amiri’s fantastic five star reviews of Smoldering Nights and Fiery Nights, the first two books in my Underground Encounters series. Cornelia is the author of the short, sexy Dancing Vampires series at Ellora’s Cave, as well as many other books.


5* – “Slick,Sexy, Suspenseful
Listen, buddy, I just saw a wall blow up, a man whom I was kissing sprouted fangs and jumped out a window, and now two men, if they even are men, are after me. So cut the crap. Who are you? No, what are you? Why are they trying to kill you? And what the hell is going on!”

     After hard work as a firefighter, Nike and her friend Maya take a girl’s night out at Vamps, a hot goth club. There Nike spots the hot, mysterious French hunk from her rock climbing gym, Michel, who is also the owner of Vamps. Suspense an action ensues as a man, who has been after Michel for many, many years, blows up the club to try to kill him.

    “Lisa Carlisle has loved vampire stories since she was in third grade, when she had a crush on Dracula.” Smoldering Nights is the first book of her Underground Encounter series. The point of view in Smoldering Nights and the Underground Encounters series is interesting and unique. The author uses first person point of view but switches it from hero to heroine by listing a header per scene or chapter as to which one she’s using.

     I loved this slick, sexy, paranormal romance and its engaging characters. The book has both steamy love scenes and fast action with riveting suspense. I highly recommend Smoldering Nights.Cornelia Amiri, Author of the Dancing Vampires series.

5* – “Sizzling… “Gifts are different for everyone. Maybe she has an affinity with some type of good spirits. Or maybe her gift is a connection with you. The light to your darkness.”

      In book two of the Underground Encounter series, the heroine, Maya, is the best friend of Nike, the heroine form Smoldering Nights. After hard work as a firefighter, Maya, dressed in a sexy pirate wench costume, celebrates Halloween at Vamps, a hot goth club. There she meets the tall, dark, handsome new owner of the club, Tristan Stone. He is a paranormal being, other than a vampire, but just as sexy and mysterious. Tristan and Maya connect well in more ways than one as she discovers that with her own paranormal gift she may be the same type of being.

     “Lisa Carlisle has loved vampire stories since she was in third grade, when she had a crush on Dracula.” Fiery Nights is the second book of her Underground Encounter series. The point of view in the Underground Encounters series is interesting and unique. The author uses first person point of view but switches it from hero to heroine by listing a header per scene or chapter as to which one she’s using.

     The writing has a smooth, seductive flow. I loved this slick, sizzling paranormal romance and its engaging characters. I highly recommend Fiery Nights.” ~  Cornelia Amiri, Author of the Dancing Vampires series.

 

Lisa Carlisle’s Book #Trailer for Fiery Nights

My awesome husband created a trailer for Fiery Nights–after I bugged him for a few weeks. ;).

He also created one for Smoldering Nights. What do you think? Maybe if we encourage him with positive feedback, he’ll create them for me before the books are released!

Thank you, Mr. C!

Fiery Nights by Lisa Carlisle #sixsunday

Welcome to the last week of Six Sentence Sunday. I’m sad to see it go, but happy to be a part of it. I’m Lisa Carlisle and I’m sharing six sentences from my latest paranormal erotic romance with Ellora’s Cave, part of a series called Underground Encounters.

His eyes defied the angelic appearance—dark, penetrating eyes. The eyes of someone who was troubled—maybe haunted.

 

Why was he staring at me like that? Didn’t he know my weakness was a dark, brooding bad boy?
