Bio: Serena began her writing hobby at an early age, creating stories out of love and a desperation to bring the voices to life. However, when the mountain of post-it noted ideas toppled, she decided to take her passion for writing seriously.
With encouragement from her family, she began writing erotic paranormals to provide an outlet for the characters rambling around in her head—each one edgy, a little dangerous, with a whole lot of sexy.  A hobby turned into career and she’s never looked back.
Serena Shay, erotic romance author, lives in the north with her super supportive hubby, beautiful, Darling Diva, daughter and two crazy, but loveable dachshund pups.

Blurb: Serena Shay returns with Book Two of her intense paranormal romance series Northwood Jags. The Submission takes you on a journey of discovery as three shifters learn to face their fear of the unknown and open their hearts to love.

Two is better than one. Most would agree with that statement, but not full-blooded shifter LeAnn Turone. To accept her need for multiple partners means facing a lifetime in a one-sided triad. She’s better off denying her heritage even if that means walking away from two of the most delectable alpha males she’s ever met.

Rick Taylor and Trent Warren each think they’ve found their mate in LeAnn, but a midnight meeting deep in the woods proves them wrong. Not only do they both long to connect to the sexy, but skittish female, they also find themselves attracted to one another.

Each member of this triad must free themselves from the fear of the future and submit to the greater power of love.

Blurb: 
Some bonds run soul deep
Eion Mandrake, wolf shifter and rising alpha, has a secret. The years he spent at school in Little Crow Pass, Wyoming wasn't just for a typical high school education. He'd been sent to learn all he could about life as a human. What he wasn't counting on was his best friend's younger sister, Olivia Wilson. Saving the little daredevil from drowning bonded him to her forever. But pack law dictates no shifter and human are allowed to mate, leaving Eion no choice. He had to leave Little Crow.

Twelve years later, Eion's returned, and all he wants is to get in and get out of town as quickly as possible. Yet, the moment he runs into Olivia he realizes the flame he's carried for the human stills burns hot and out of control. 

But Olivia is all grown up now and has a new man in her life--one she can count on to stick around. She's doing her best to move forward and forget her childhood crush. However, Olivia needs Eion's help. Problem is, lowering the wall around his heart to become Olivia's hero once more could destroy both their worlds.

Tattoo Tuesday: Golden Czermak aka FuriousFotog #tattootuesday

Welcome
Golden Czermak
to Tattoo Tuesday



Give me four sentences that sum you up: what you do, who you are, where you've been...
I'm a professional photographer specializing in fitness and fashion photography, weddings and portraits. I do both personal work and commercial projects. I'm pretty easy going(though some would say I stress... lol) yet professional; I'm also driven yet fun. In other words, an all around a nice guy ;)

When did you know you wanted to be a photographer?
Probably about 7 years ago, when I started taking photos for use as stock in some of my creative Photoshop tinkerings.



What is your absolute favorite image you've taken?
Oh that is a tough one! I love all my images and the models featured in them. So hard to pick! I plead the 5th :)

If you could pack up your gear and head off into the wilds of the world, where would you LOVE to photograph people or nature?
Anywhere tropical and beachy.... as you know I have a "thing" for water shots and the ability to combine that with shoot-throughs  of tropical foliage, etc. I think would create some amazing art.


What was your first tattoo?  Does it have meaning to you?
My first tattoo was a piece I designed for my upper back.. pretty much spans shoulder blade to shoulder blade. It is a tribal piece with dragons, interwoven with alchemy symbols to produce the elixir of life. On the right shoulder is Korean for "creation" and on the left "destruction". Above the tattoo I have "the will to live overcomes all things" in latin. The tribal design also descends down the centerline of my back, ending in a sun-patterned pentacle. It all has incredible meaning to me, as my mother contracted and fought hard to battle a rare form of cancer. Unfortunately she lost that battle in late 2012.

Do you have any that you regret getting?
None so far.


If you had to pick a favorite piece of ink, which would it be and why?
My back tattoo obviously has a place in my heart... being first and carrying the most weight, but I would say both my lower legs and the story they tell about me... being totally wrapped.

Do you have more tats planned?
Yes, mainly "fill ins" and patterns to tie things together better, some elements on my quads and possibly additional sleeve work.


Do you buy into tattoos being addictive once you start getting them?
Yes... I got all the ink you see within a year. Haha. A little addictive? I think so.

What's your life plans for the immediate future? Long-term?
Immediate plans are to get my photography business up and running to full time capacity. I had been working on it part time over the year and it just grew to the point of needing full time attention. So that piece will be grown and we will also see about online sales, etc. Hopefully this will be the new thing for me long term, too.


What's something about yourself that most people don't know?
I am a huge, gigantic nerd and gamer.

If you were a superhero, what would your power be? Your weakness?
I'd love the ability to fly or use telekinesis. My weakness would be my compassion.

Favorite TV show or station?
Of all time? Babylon 5 (yep, I am a scifi geek). Currently, Supernatural.


What's your 'go to' comfort item (food, place, drink, etc)?
Macaroni and cheese. And peanut butter. And anything that tastes like carbs.

If there were no $ or time limitations, where would you be right now and what would you be doing?
Finding those models and shooting in those tropical locations.

Do you enjoy reading? Who's your fav author, or your fav type of book (suspense, mystery, biography, paranormal, etc)?
Scifi and fantasy. Tolkien's works are a favorite of mine, though they can be a challenge to read.


Quick Questions:
Bottle or can? Bottle
Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate
Muscle car or motorcycle? Muscle car
Morning person or night-owl? Night owl
Rollercoaster or bumper cars? Rollercoaster

Any other shout outs you'd like to do? Websites? FB pages?
Obviously a huge shout-out to you for sharing my images! Along with that a shout out to the FSOS pages, Adonis, Country and Southern Boys and I Love Southern Boys. Without you all I wouldn't be where I am today.

Blurb: Willie Krenshaw wanted nothing more than a few minutes watching the waters of Lake Erie after a long workday. What she ended up with was a drugged male vampire and an itch to be a Good Samaritan.

When her inner kitty starts sniffing around at the male she's helping, she knows Fate's evil sense of humor is in full swing. Being a shifter-vampire hybrid is hard enough, but having a male vampire as her fated mate is just too much.


Nickola, the vampire she assists, finds her breathtaking and does all he can to push Fate's agenda.


Stephen is the male vampire Nickola is investigating for the Council. He takes aim at the couple, intent on pulling Nick to his side or killing him. Between Stephen's scheming and the Council's interest in Willie, can they survive the chaos long enough to test the depths of their passions?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blurb: Renae Gioli isn’t looking for adventure but it finds her in the form of an Italian speaking man named Alexandre DiMassone. The moment she hears his voice in a crappy dive bar she’s entranced. His strange behavior on the dance floor leaves her hot, wanting, and scared.

He’s captivated by her eyes and even as he fights it the vampire can’t help himself. Can he push aside his jaded attitude and embrace what Fate has given him before he loses her? His obsession spells trouble and lust for her. Kidnapping her was never in the cards, but he doesn’t have the willpower to let her walk away.


Rogue vampires, cougar shifters, and more intrude on their time. Can she forgive him for forcing his will on her and changing her entire life in a single bite? His arrogance knows no bounds but she catches a glimpse of the confusion beneath.

#FBF Flashback Friday: 'Alpha in Hiding' #paranormal #eroticromance

Flashback Friday...

Not my first paranormal, but it is one of my favorites...

Emily and Seth are two of my favorite characters to date, both quirky and strong. Emily is so mentally and physically strong, but so soft emotionally. I loved writing her story. And, poor Seth. He was so weak physically in the beginning that I wanted to slap him. They really work so well together, though, and I can't wait to find out what everyone thinks.


Blurb:
It’s tough being the Alpha’s daughter. Emily Prescott spends half her life helping to manage the pack’s business and the other half putting horny he-wolves in their place. When her father sends her on a mission to bring a weak wolf into his shifter side, it seems like just another pain in her ass—until her bitch perks up and takes notice.
Seth has spent years fighting to keep his wolf at bay, but something about Emily brings out the animal in him. Wild sex with Emily turns into an uncontrollable urge to mate her and make her his. But Emily needs a strong mate—someone who can dominate and defend her. If weak, geeky Seth wants to woo her, he has some changing to do.





Oh, and because I love to share, here's a new snippet:

“I figured out one scent that’s been driving me nuts since this morning.” His voice was deep and compelling. He leaned down and buried his nose in her neck. His breath was hot as he whispered. “You’re hot for me, Emily Prescott. I can smell your need from here. You’ve been wet for me most of the day haven’t you?”
She struggled to back away from him and was astounded when he growled at her. No one growled at her, ever. She stopped moving and pressed her hands against his chest, pushing slowly but with all her strength. The look of amazement that crossed his face when she finally had a few inches between their bodies was priceless, but she wasn’t amused. She was pissed.
“You will back the fuck off right now, Seth.” She pushed enough Alpha power at him to make him listen. She didn’t want to totally break his spirit but he’d overstepped the clear line she’d marked in the sand. Light touching, joking around, trying to get a kiss…okay. Discussing her rampant sexual need for him? Definitely not okay.
“Holy crap. Sorry, Em. I don’t know what got into me. Your scent is just driving me to distraction, not that this is in any way your fault.” She could actually see him get a grip on his mind and begin to stumble all over himself trying to get away from her. Oh hell—now she’d made him feel bad. Freaking shifters. Freaking males.
“Look, no worries. I should feel lucky you’re as gentlemanly as you are.” She could feel a blush pinking her cheeks. Well, lovely. Now he had her blushing.
“Why do you fight it so hard? I mean, I know I want you. You obviously want me. Am I so unappealing that you don’t want me touching you?”
“No, Seth. No. It’s nothing like that.” She rubbed her forehead and tried to deal with the surreal conversation they were going to have. “Do you know how mates are created in the shifter world?”
“Not really. I know my parents were mated.”
“Okay. True mates—not just married couples—are created by a ritual during sex. Each party has to bite the other at the time of orgasm and if they are meant to be mated a bond is formed. A really strong, unbreakable bond. Supposedly it has something to do with genetics and antibodies, or something like that. I haven’t really paid too much attention to the discussions about it.” She watched him closely, looking for understanding to flicker in his eyes. “It’s permanent and completely binding. No one can break it. Well, no one alive can. The only way to sever the bond is through death. The connection is intimate and psychic. You know when I was in your head yesterday? Picture that all the time. Some can learn to shut it off for a while, but it’s a mental connection with your mate that you have for your entire life.”
“Okay, but that doesn’t explain the Alpha push to keep me from kissing you.”
“Well maybe you don’t feel it. My wolf, and to some extent myself, have feelings for you that go way beyond a casual fuck. She wants to mark you, to leave our bite mark on your skin. That’s not a casual thought to a wolf. She’s ready to make you our mate. I’m not interested in a mate—don’t want one and definitely don’t need one.” The venom coating those last words hung between them.
His dark eyes were so intent on her face that she had to look away. Would he see her fears of a future with a male who didn’t love her for her but only for her power? Would he push her to really stop him this time? She dreaded using her powers on him but she couldn’t let them get naked together. She only had so much self-control.
“What are you really scared of?” His question was whispered so low that she wasn’t sure he’d actually said anything until he lifted her face with a finger under her chin. She wanted to fall into his eyes, drown in them. He asked again. “Emily, what are you really afraid of?”
