INFLAME

A gargoyle shifter and witch romance

Is the curse finally broken?

That must mean the witch is dead.

And he wouldn’t have the satisfaction of destroying her himself…

Lucan, a gargoyle shifter, is finally freed from his stone statue and ready to make up for lost time – a plan that includes acting on the inexplicable pull to the mysterious blonde who waltzes into the underground club where he works.

Elise has hunted Lucan down for one purpose. No way can she allow herself to get distracted by his captivating presence and magnificent eyes.

She blurts out the news: He’s a father.

He’d conceived a child with the witch who’d cursed him — Elise’s sister.

This complication means she must ignore her attraction to him. A fling with him is strictly off-limits.

But, when Elise needs his help to protect her niece and Lucan’s daughter, that dangerous desire might be too difficult to resist…

INFLAME is part of the Bad Alpha Dads project and is a fiery, standalone, paranormal romance in the Underground Encounters series.

Step into Vamps and discover a thrilling new world of steamy paranormal romance featuring sexy shifters, thirsty vampires, passionate witches, and gorgeous gargoyles!

Available at Amazon and in KU!

It feels good to release the final part of a trilogy. Dark Stranger is part 3 in Chateau Seductions, bringing the characters back who were introduced in Dark Velvet and Dark Stranger.

But, it won’t be the last story from the Chateau. I’m working on a short story with some of the characters. And readers have asked to continue the series. So maybe…

Chateau Seductions is set at an art colony in a castle on a remote island. It’s a tranquil space for artists, writers, and musicians to work–and perhaps find romance. To celebrate the new release, Dark Velvet is on sale for only 99 cents for a limited time!

Dark Muse

Chateau Seductions Part 2

Dark-MuseIt takes time before Gina Meiro warms up to people and her shyness is often misunderstood. She hasn’t had to worry about meeting new people at a remote art colony until a new resident arrives—a rock guitarist more suited for a billboard. Her carefree days of painting at the medieval-styled castle on a remote New England island are shattered when she stumbles right into his welcome gathering.

After a falling out with his band, Dante Riani wants nothing more at Les Beaux Arts on DeRoche Island than solitude to work on new songs. When a shy young painter asks to paint him at sunset, he’s tempted by the opportunity to be alone with her.

Someone at the colony claims to know what Dante is and asks for his help. Dante fears his plans are coming undone, especially as grows more drawn to Gina. Her scent and vulnerability are too difficult to resist. But he must stay away from her—she would never understand his secret.

5* Review of Dark Muse from Books and Beyond Fifty Shades! – “While it is a story about struggle, it is also about love; and doing whatever needs to be done to be with the one you are attracted to. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Gina and Dante. This story has the perfect amount of witty banter, sex, and romance.”

“Fast paced story with steamy hot sex and those two characters that promise you an amazing time.
An amazing scenery, an amazing plot and of course you get the chance to see what’s going on in the chateau and in the characters we met in the first book as well!”

Dark Velvet

Chateau Seductions Part 1

darkvelvetGrad student Savannah Evans is thrilled to be accepted as a resident to a prestigious art colony. Where else would she be able to focus on her craft of writing poetry in a setting like that of the medieval-styled castle? The remote New England island is a respite from her hectic city life. When she meets her benefactor, a mysterious French sculptor, her expectations for carefree days writing near the ocean are distracted by unprofessional fantasies about her sponsor.

Antoine Chevalier built Les Beaux Arts on DeRoche Island to bring purpose back to an existence that has lost meaning. He’s wandered the earth for decades and finds solace in returning to art. When Savannah applies for a residency, something about her words touches him. After her arrival, a physical attraction grows between them, which he struggles against.  She deserves more than someone of his kind.

Antoine proposes they become lovers during her stay. But the situation turns complicated when Savannah discovers his secret. She had suspicions about his identity, but finds the truth overwhelming. Consumed by her desire for Antoine and faced with a tough decision, she is blind to the danger that has arrived at DeRoche Island.

Reviews

“The setting on DeRoche Island was beautiful, and felt like it was from another time. The chemistry between Savannah and Antoine is sure to draw the reader in as well. 
Dark Velvet is the first novella in the Chateau Seduction series. I am very excited to read Carlisle’s next installment!”

“Dark Velvet has a dark eroticism that makes you want to be Savannah. It is a book that is a good, quick and darkly thrilling read.”

Happy July 1st!

Welcome to July! It seems like May through June was a whirlwind of travel and conferences. I am so looking forward to July where I’ll be consumed by starting yet another project during Camp Nanowrimo–while finishing up several others!

So here’s a quick recap of conferences. NEC-RWA book signingIn late April, I attended the New England Conference of Romance Writers of America. After soaking in great info at the panels, I signed copies of Rock Me Tonight and Night Encounters at the book fair. Here I am with the lovely Loretta Chase.

In late May, I visited New York for Book Expo America to be one of Ellora’s Cave’s authors signing at its booth. I’d take almost any reason to visit NY, being surrounded by books, authors, and publishers makes it a book lovers dream. After checking in, my author pal Heather Elizabeth King and I walked around Times Square and checked out a cover band. The next day we were in full BEA mode. After checking out as many booths as we could before our signing, we met up with fellow author Kerry Adrienne, EC staff, and cavemen at the EC booth. The next several hours flew by. We signed book cover flats, and had fun chatting in between. We talked with librarians, authors, book store owners, and readers, who stopped by. And then we hit the many rows and rows of booths. I found an advance copy of an R.L. Stine book for my youngest sister, who was a huge fan growing up. 

iPhone 2014 139Late that afternoon, I met up with Heather and her friends later at Ellen Stardust. I never heard of it before, but was blown away by the great atmosphere. The servers each took turns singing Broadway songs or modern hits and some of them were amazing. I can’t remember what I ate, but I ate every last bite so it was good! Later that night, we met up with some of my friends at a bar downtown and finished the night dancing. 

While waiting in line in NY, I checked my email and was thrilled to read one from Night Owl Reviews. They reviewed Bloodlust and Metal, part of my Underground Encounters series with Ellora’s Cave. Made my day! Here are some snippets:

“Heavy Metal, vampires and shifters make a great combination in this mesmerizing paranormal romance.” 

“The attraction between Devon and Layla radiates from every page and no matter how much they fight it the sex scenes are red hot and scorch the reader with their fiery passion.” 

“The relationship between the two keeps things real interesting and the danger, passion and action heats things up even more and the drama with the band adds a little more spice to the story as well.”

Here’s more on Bloodlust and Metal.

Bloodlust and Metal

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.

Summer Seduction Blog Hop with Lisa Carlisle

Hi, I’m Lisa Carlisle and I write hot paranormal romance for Ellora’s Cave. Welcome to the Summer Seduction Blog Hop!

To kick off this hot summer, I had two new releases in my series, both with a rock ‘n’ roll element. What’s hotter than a rock star? I don’t know what it is, but there’s something so sexy about a man crooning on stage or playing an instrument, especially guitar.

I’m giving away a digital copy of Rock Me Tonight or Bloodlust and Metal to one lucky commenter through my Rafflecopter giveaway. Be sure to leave a comment below on who you think would be the sexier hero, Nico or Devon.

rockmetonight_msrRock Me Tonight

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.

A Sexy Saturday with Lisa Carlisle

Good morning. This is my first My Sexy Saturday. Here are seven paragraphs from my paranormal/shapeshifter romance Rock Me Tonight.

That was my hang-up. I knew no guy would be able to handle my secret.

My thoughts were distracted as I strained to hear the opening of the song. He sang so softly at first I barely made out the lyrics. Then his croon turned into a seductive opening of a song I recognized. #1 Crush by Garbage, an admittance of obsessive love . How the hell did he make it sound so tormented and yet so damn sexy all at once?

I had to get a better look and see this guy who was exacting complete control over the crowd. He had them worked up in a frenzy during the last song and now they had settled into a hypnotic sway as they listened to him sing with such intense longing. He delivered it with such a painful croon, almost haunted. That’s when I finally caught a glimpse of him.

Holy hell.

My recent encounters with punk rockers led me to believe they were all a bunch of ugly bastards so I was not expecting someone so—so—like him.

He was wearing a plaid green-and-black cap, but I saw his dark brown hair was cut close to his scalp. He looked so young and innocent at the same time. I pegged him to be in his late twenties. Maybe my age or a couple of years younger than me since I was about to celebrate the first of many twenty-ninth birthdays later this year.

I stood up on the rung of a stool to get a better look and that’s when I saw he was also playing bass guitar. He wore torn camouflage pants tucked into tall, black Doc Marten-style boots and held up by a silver-studded black belt. His torn black shirt sported the Velvet Cocks logo—a rooster wearing a smoking jacket and an ornate V and C, which appeared very Victorian and proper. Misdirection perhaps as to the actual naughty words? Tattoos galore extended from beyond his shirtsleeves. The whole combination gave him a hardcore look of a total badass. Dangerous and sexy.
