Author Interview with Sienna Matthews

  • Brief introduction? In 3 sentences or less, tell me about yourself.

Hi, I'm Sienna Matthews, co-author with Madison Blake in Tempting Their Best Friend. I'm a bespectacled, mild-mannered office employee by day with hopes of one day quitting the day job and writing full time. I'm one of those who often complain about not having enough hours in a day to do everything I want, and I always thought I could be best served with 48-hour days.

  • What genre do you write and why?

I write erotic romance, because I love the freedom that the genre brings in terms of sexual exploration. For example, in my upcoming book, Lust on Camera, a married couple (Brent and Lindsey) explores bringing in a third person (the husband's best friend Rory) into the relationship. How would this affect their relationship, especially since Lindsey has had a crush on Rory since the beginning? For Rory, what does it mean to lust after his best friend's wife…and his best friend? How would this impact his friendship with Brent?

And, you know, in psychology, they say within each of us is the "id", which operates on the pleasure principle. I'm just letting the id in me out to play.

  • Is writing your day job? If not, what else do you do?

I wish! In my day job, I'm a credit analyst in a bank, poring over boring numbers and writing credit reports for loan application approvals. You can see now why I'd need the creativity that writing brings.

  • Any hobbies?

You mean aside from reading? That already takes most of my time. Well, if you insist, it would be cooking. To expand on the number recipes in my mental menu, I'm currently trying to learn how to bake.

  • What is your least favorite part of the writing and publishing process?

Editing is a nightmare, and I don't know anything about marketing. I've since hired Book Unleashed as my publicist to help me out on the marketing front, and they're doing a great job so far. For editing though, I guess I'm stuck with it. LOL Can't very well hand it off to someone else.

  • Do you use an outline or just jump right in?

I want to be one of those authors who write by the seat of their pants--sounds more exciting that way. Sadly though, I'm one of those people who need an outline to guide my writing. However, it's not a rigid outline. I usually only have the bare bones of the story, allowing me plenty of room to maneuver and navigate and unleash my creativity.

  • Do you ever dream or daydream about your characters?

Always! I can't write unless I hear them talking in my head. Sounds weird, I know, but they aren't alive to me otherwise. It's only when they talk that they come alive for me, and that's when I know it's time to write their story.

  • What is your next project, after this?

The next book in the series is titled Lust on Camera, as I'd mentioned earlier. It's due to be published in October or November. I'm also currently developing a series of books of erotic fairy tales. These are fairy tales you've never read before--erotic or otherwise!

Madison Blake is a firm believer in love and happy endings. That’s why she loves stories wherein the characters go through adversities to emerge victorious in the end. Holding a day job means that she doesn’t get much time to write, so Madison tries to cram her free time with as much writing as she can. Even so, she would make time to read her favorite genre (romance), especially when she’s experiencing writer’s block. She loves to read and write about strong heroines, and she’s on the eternal quest for the powerful, attractive, mysterious, yummy hero, the kind of man who’ll make you sigh and say, “He’s the one.” 

Sienna Matthews is a bespectacled, mild-mannered office employee by day and turns into a mad, raving writer at night and during weekends. The only thing that can be heard from her are the tap, tap, tap of her keyboard. She doesn't need food or sleep as she follows the calling of her muse.

The Romance Review

What a great read!

Image result for yay gif

This book was fantastic. I haven't read a lot of sci-fi romances but the few I've read have been growing on me. So I am glad I decided to give this one a shot. It's the first of the series and I hope the wait isn't too long before the next book is released. Definitely keeping an eye out for more!

Jasmine is a curvy woman on a mission to fulfill the one wish of the sick children in her foundation. They want to meet a real live alien. It shouldn't be that difficult considering a new species of aliens has taken up residence on Earth for almost two years now. But for some reason, her attempts to see a representative about this matter have all ended in disappointment. Determined not to fail this time, she has a plan to make someone, anyone, listen to her plea.

Tallis is in the wrong place at the wrong time when he happens to become the alien caught in Jasmine's protest. Then after doing the polite thing and listening to her request, he somehow ends up stuck being the one to fulfill it. Yet, it doesn't take long for Tallis and his internal feline half to decide they want more from this woman than an act of charity.

Unfortunately, tensions run high with the new alien citizens and earthlings still at odds. Tallis knows that he can never have a real relationship with Jaz, despite his entire being craving her. He worries for her safety and if rumor were to spread of an alien-human affair they would face opposition from both sides. However, the heart wants what it wants and soon the pair have little choice but to risk it all for love.

Jasmine was a nice character with a heart of gold. She went to bat for the kids in her charity and wouldn't back down until they got their wish. I liked her from the beginning. Tallis was a unique character, especially with him being sort-of a shifter. I enjoyed reading about his alien heritage and all of their technology.

The couple had good chemistry and boy were the love scenes hot with a capital "H". More than that, there was an emotional connection felt early on and the so the whole 'mate' concept never felt forced. Tallis surprised me more than once when he was so endearing yet dominant at the same time. I liked that side of him just as much as Jasmine did. *wink*

As for the plot, it also had some twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end. There is a bit of action here and there but nothing too explicit, except for the bedroom scenes. Though, I think my favorite part of the book was watching Tallis bicker with Itohan, who was almost like his magical familiar. Those two were funny at times.

In closing...
I wonder which alien will be next to find their own mate. I hope it's Deasun. Five suns!

Review & Tour: Once Upon a Lady by Addie Jo Ryleigh

Title: Once Upon a Lady
Author: Addie Jo Ryleigh
Genre/Age: Historical Romance/Adult
Series: Soul Mate Tree Series (Book Eight)
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing
Format: ebook via Tasty Tours
Rating: ✺✺✺
SynopsisRespectable Lady Katherine Baxton, striving to meet the requirements of her station, has become the ultimate dutiful daughter. And now, the Duke of Blackthorn’s betrothed. Far from a love match, Kate is nevertheless determined to do as expected and marry.

That all changes the night she panics at her impending future and runs, stumbling upon a private grove, a mysterious tree . . . and a half-naked man.

The youngest son of a viscount widely thought to have purchased his title, Jackson Cooper demonstrates his disdain for the aristocracy by affording himself every luxury available—drinking, wenching, and gambling—while eschewing anything representing the ton. Jackson has little care for his reputation and no desire to marry. His escape from London is all but complete.

Until fate—in the form of a beautiful, mysterious lady—interrupts his plans, enticing him with the very thing he never wanted.

Kate felt his approach before she saw him. Which wasn’t all that surprising since her body had remained mindful of his presence. Fighting the impulse proved fruitless.

When his tall frame blocked the sun and cast her in shadow, she knew besides giving him a direct cut, she had no escape. If only she hadn’t ventured from her sister’s side. At the time, abandoning Helena had been her singular option since their slow stroll through the gathering had traveled too close to the very man standing beside her. She’d been delaying the inevitable.

Kate was now alone, as she tried to keep her attention on the lawn activities before her, hoping no one would witness what was about to happen.

“Aren’t sprites confined to the trees?” His deep voice washed over her.

She didn’t turn to acknowledge him. “How nice to see you properly dressed for once.”

His chuckle warmed her. “Are you following me?”

An unladylike snort refused to be repressed. “Hardly. You are rather difficult to overlook, being the only unknown face here.”

“That’s not true. You’ve seen my face . . . as well as other, more interesting parts.”

Kate wished she’d listened to her sister and worn a bonnet. Anything to mask the heat flaring in her cheeks.

Thankfully he remained at her side and hadn’t a clear view of her face. “We have not been introduced. I can’t be seen speaking to you.”

“Then let us go where we can't be seen.”

Her heart raced at his boldness. Why was this man so tempting? She was spoken for, though still unofficially. Proper ladies didn’t follow strange men to private locations, regardless of their marital status. “Absolutely not.”

“Even if I have something of yours?”

Blast! Her ring. Given her luck lately, she would have lost it in the grove of all places. Her aunt would toss in her grave knowing Kate had misplaced her gift.

“A true gentleman would return it.”

His deep laugh caused her pulse to flutter. “I’m no gentleman. Or haven’t you heard?”

I think the Soul Mate Tree put me under its spell too!

Kate isn't sure what to do about her current predicament. She's about to become engaged to a handsome duke who meets almost all of the required traits of a good husband. Except for one. He just doesn't stir passionate feelings inside her when they are together. And she feels as if marrying him is more out of duty than anything. But the Soul Mate Tree has made other plans for her future.

Jackson isn't sure why he is so enamored by Kate the first time he meets her. There is something about the young woman that sets him ablaze and even though he doesn't desire a life of marriage, he can't help but want to get closer to this wood nymph. Yet, the more he does, the clearer it becomes that the plan for his life may change drastically after the legendary tree gets ahold of him.

I loved this story. It was historical romance but with a slight twist of paranormal in the match-making tree bringing our couple together. 

Don't get me wrong, when our pair first meet, I was stunned by how it happened. And because of that situation, I was a little wary of Jackson for a while. I needed him to prove himself to be more than a rake and worthy of Kate's affection. Because Kate really was a great character and she deserved nothing less than forever.

I'm happy to say that both characters impressed me in the end. And they weren't the only ones. Another certain eligible bachelor handled himself with such grace that left me hoping to see him find his own happily ever after. But I won't go into details and give anything away. I will say that if the author decides to write a story with this particular duke, I am all on board!

As for our couple, I enjoyed watching them slowly come to understand their feelings for each other. Kate needed to learn how to stand on her own two feet and Jackson had to discover what was truly worth fighting for. Their chemistry was great and the naughty time left me smiling. I was all-around pleased with this book. 

In closing... 
I will be reading the fifth book of this series in the coming weeks. I hope it's as good as this one but it has some tough competition, that's for sure. Five suns!

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at The Duke's Defiant Bride. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
Bellamy House,
Mayfair, London
April, 1816
Carver Adams, the Duke of Hawksmoor, had a secret. Two, actually—and either one of them would knock the ton on its head if the truth ever came out.
As he stepped into the glittering ballroom of Bellamy House, he scanned the room for his host and spotted him immediately.
His old friend, Beckett, the Earl of Ravenwood, took notice of his arrival and approached with champagne in hand.
"Your Grace," Beckett said, bowing slightly. "Welcome. Though I’m a bit surprised to see you here tonight. Are you finally in the market for a bride?"
Carver chuckled. "You never quit, do you, Beckett."
"Certainly not. If you are, Isobel would be happy to help. Lady Weston would, too, I suspect. Look, there are Alfred and Prudence, now."
Carver turned to see Alfred, Baron Weston and his beautiful wife, Prudence, taking the final steps in a lively quadrille in the center of the ballroom. They turned and locked eyes with Carver, smiled and approached.
"Tell me, Your Grace, is it true? Are you on the hunt for a duchess at last?"
He was on the hunt for something, or someone, Carver mused to himself. But men like him always were.
"There is quite a crop of beautiful young ladies to choose from here this evening," Alfred added, scanning the room. "Simply take your pick."
His wife cocked her head to the side. "I do beg your pardon, Alfred, but what of the young ladies? Do they not have a say in this? Perhaps they don’t wish to have a husband. Even a duke. Pardon my saying so, Your Grace."
Prudence, Baroness Weston, was known for her independent speech and intelligent mind, which was no surprise, considering she ran a successful school for young ladies who came from troubled backgrounds, or even the streets themselves.
"I am not seeking a duchess this evening, Lady Weston," Carver replied. "But if I were, you and Lady Ravenwood would be the first I would consult for advice and recommendations. You are both modern-thinking ladies, and as you know, I have come to the dukedom rather late in life. Truth be told, I still feel like nothing but a lowly captain of the West Devonshire, and nothing more."
"Forgive me, Your Grace," she replied with a charming glimmer in her eye, "but as my husband tells it, Captain Carver Adams was quite a distinguished soldier. You led many brave missions in the Peninsula and saved countless English lives. You are a true hero."
Carver thanked her but looked away from the compliment, for there was one mission where he had failed catastrophically—the mission to escort a beautiful French spy, Lady Blade, to his superiors at Villarosa.
Two-and-a half years later, those hellish events still haunted him in the darkest hours of the night. The explosions… The screams of dying men...
And of course, the beautiful Lady Blade haunted him most of all.

Excerpt & Tour: Elemental Trials by Ronelle Antoinette

Title: Errant Spark
Author: Ronelle Antoinette
Genre/Age: Fantasy Romance/Adult
Series: Elemental Trials Series (Book One)
Publisher: Self-published
SynopsisThey say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but In Egalion’s Imperial court, you can't tell one from the other...especially when they change at the flip of a coin. Behind the luxury and splendor lies a realm of treachery where cloak-and-dagger political maneuvering threatens to destroy the peace of two thousand years. 

Twenty-five-year-old Battlemage Jex Xander has a mouth that frequently gets him into trouble, while in contrast, Enari Namelum speaks not at all. When Jex becomes the target of a faceless curse-slinger, Enari, the girl he has protected since the day they met, must now protect him. A string of ritual human sacrifices coupled with Jex’s growing inability to keep his feelings (and hands) to himself only serve to complicate matters. Amidst the mounting chaos, passion and romance should be the last thing on their minds, but life and the Goddess seem to have other ideas.

In a world as enticing as it is perilous, love, danger, and magic will collide, leaving lives irrevocably changed. The events of a single summer stand to change the course of more than just the kingdom of Egalion and the ones dismissed as pawns may yet prove to b the most important players.

Errant Spark is the hush before the storm, the last deep breath before the plunge. The flint has been struck and it’s possible the whole world might go up in flames…because love in the Imperial court is as dangerous a thing as backroom politics and jealousy can be as much a driving force as silver and gold.

Fantasy? Action? Romance? Yes! This romantic fantasy novel by Ronelle Antoinette is a broad, epic, sweeping fantasy with more twists and turns and ups and downs than a wild roller-coaster! The first installment of the Elemental Trials series is one of those books that really is so much more than what the blurb can convey. Described as “surprisingly complex and visionary” by one reviewer, Errant Spark will leave you mesmerized from the first page to the last. 

Hailed by Amazing Stories Magazine’s Ricky L Brown as “a simple story about interesting characters with just enough romance and magic to make it work.” Errant Spark is as complex as George RR Martin, with a world that is well-suited for conniving and cavorting. Rest assured, there is plenty of sex and violence, but not as raw and stabby as the aforementioned works. It’s more like a big kid’s version of a fairy tale.

Recommended for:
•Mature teens and up
•Fans of epic fantasy and romance
•Those looking for characters they want to eat…or take home and enjoy
•Readers who can appreciate a gorgeous tapestry of magic, myth, and mayhem
•Connoisseurs of fine love stories that compliment the plot and that ‘slow burn’
•Lovers of surprises, twists-and-turns, and well-placed, necessary supernatural elements
•Anyone looking for sex, magic, love, fantasy, and a story that will sweep you away
•Those who don’t mind staying up all night so they can turn that final page

Update: As of 11/21/16, a series glossary has been included at the end of this novel (in ebook and print form only).

Title: Flash Point
Author: Ronelle Antoinette
Genre/Age: Fantasy Romance/Adult
Series: Elemental Trials Series (Book Two)
Publisher: Self-published
Synopsis Scandal will shake foundations.

A night of careless passion leaves Battlemage Jex Xander and Adept Enari Alycon in a precarious position. Long-time lovers they might be, but the Imperial ambassador and the daughter of Egalion’s High Mage have rather public roles in the court—whether they wish it or not—and scandal couldn’t come at a worse time. 

Treachery will tip balances.

When a hostile kingdom reluctantly agrees to parley, the fate of two-thousand years of peace is on the line. In the midst of negotiations, Enari becomes the target of one of the Greater Maelstrom. She and Jex must race against time to save her life and that of her unborn child. What happens when an earth-shattering secret, a demon bent on destruction, and a kingdom teetering on the brink of war collide is anyone’s guess.

Choices will have consequences.

The decisions of a few will determine the fate of many, and who or what will remain standing in the end is still uncertain. Hearts and lives are on the cusp of irrevocable change…and not necessarily for the better.

And secrets? Those will change everything.

He raised the shard, letting her examine it for a heartbeat or two, then used the blade to cut her palm and his own. Enari winced at the line of pain that blazed across her skin, biting back a hiss just in time to keep from breaking the mandate of silence. Jex pressed their weeping palms together and laced his fingers through hers.

She could almost taste her own dread now, bitter as a mouthful of lemon rind.

“Blood to blood and gift to gift,” Jex intoned, “I lend you my strength for the test ahead. I will hold the door so you may pass and may it be with joy that I close it after your return.” There was a hint of fear in his emerald eyes as he spoke the final words.

“Initiate, it is time for you to face The Pool and The Dweller below,” her father announced.

Sweat broke out across her forehead and the back of her neck as her eyes settled on The Pool.

Jex rose to his feet, fingers still twined with hers, and she balked, not wanting to go any nearer to that still and menacing water. He reached behind her and seized her belt, forcing her up and forward. His hand remained at the small of her back to hold her in place once they stood at the very lip of The Pool.

Her stomach knotted and a slithering nausea twisted its greasy fingers around her throat. She swallowed hard and tasted bile.

Jex put his mouth against her ear and began to speak.

“We have to lower you into the water. Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and don’t be afraid. It’ll be over before you know it.”

She turned to him, shaking her head. More than anything, she did not want to let that black water touch her. Blue eyes met green and she pled the only way she could.

His expression went flat and his voice hardened. “You asked me to serve as your Chosen. Let me do my duty.”

“Be silent!” the high mage barked.

Jex gave him a dirty look, but nodded once and the two men took hold of her, each putting a hand under one of her arms and grasping her hands in theirs. With agonizing slowness, they began to lower her.

The first shock of bitter cold stole her breath.

As the velvet of her robe became wet, it dragged on her and clung to her legs. She kicked, trying to free her feet but the heavy fabric stuck fast.

Before she was half-submerged, she started to tremble. The water felt just short of freezing solid and had a slimy quality that disgusted her.

Soon, only her head remained clear and Jex was crouching at her side, still gripping her bloody hand. His other settled on her hair.

“Deep breath, now,” he directed.

And before she could even think to scream, he jerked his hand free of hers and thrust her head beneath the surface.

Ronelle Antoinette lives in western Colorado with her husband, two cats, and one dog-who-believes-he's-a-person. While she is a mother of none, she’s an auntie to what should qualify as a small army. She is an admitted caffeine addict, chocoholic, and hopeless romantic who has carried on a passionate affair with the genre of fantasy since she was old enough to read 'chapter books'. 

Ronelle dabbled in creative writing for many years before making it a career. (She even considered it as a major in college, though she ended up getting a Bachelor's degree in Counseling Psychology.) She published her first novel, Errant Spark, in July of 2016.
