The Next Big Thing!~Nordic Prince

I got tagged in the Next Big Thing blog hop by Virginia Nelson!  So this is my Next Big Thing blog, featuring my February release with Champagne Books.

1) What is the working title of your novel? 
Nordic Prince
2) Where did the idea for the novel come from?
 I was lucky enough to Beta for a friend of mine. She wrote some really steamy F/F erotic shorts but somehow her characters are always relateable and likeable. And I thought it might be interesting and fun to see if I could get a good story out with two very yummy men. Then I let my imagination run wild.
3) What genre does your novel fall under?
 Contemporary erotic romance
4) Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Originally, I pictured Matt Damon for the main protagonist and Alexander Skarsgard for the love interest, Erik.
5) What is the one sentence synopsis of your novel?
More than he never knew he needed; more than he could ever hope, but does he dare claim the prize of the Nordic Prince.
6) Will your novel be self-published or represented by an agency?
 Nordic Prince will be out in February 2013 through Champagne Books: Carnal Passions Imprints.
7) How long did it take to write the first draft of your manuscript?  
Just over a week. I started it while a lot of things in were happening in the “real world”.
8) What other novels would you compare this book to within your genre?
I haven’t really compared myself to anyone because when I look at all the other great stories written by fantastic authors I am amazed to be part of them.
9) Who or what inspired you to write this novel?
My friend Virginia Nelson had faith in my ability to write and pushed me to submit my story to Champagne Books. She is made from Awesomesauce.
10) What else about your novel might pique the reader’s interest?
There are two hot men on a pleasure cruise. They define the word ‘fun’ in so many naughty ways.

When Doctor Steven Mills is dragged onto The Nordic Prince for fun in the sun by his sister, Amanda, he is certain he will be miserable. Until he meets Erik.
Erik is fun, exciting and just what the doctor ordered. Some drinks and dancing with him are more enticing to Steven than any date he’s gone on with women. Before long, the two escape the busy dance floor for the quiet—and private—spa where Eric works on Steven’s body with very skilled hands. Steven is overcome with an onslaught of new emotions and sensations and has the best sexual experience of his life.
Now Steven must wrestle with new feelings and desires and make a decision that could change his life forever.


Steven looked on with curiosity.  “What are you…?”
With two long strides Erik was by his side, his lips closed over Steve’s, momentarily silencing any further words. 
Erik probed Steve’s lips with his warm tongue.  Lust kindled earlier exploded into an inferno of complete hunger, which threatened to consume his impulse to resist. 
Lightly touching Steve’s face, Erik gazed at him.  “I have wanted to do that all night.”
Steve’s will reasserted itself once more. He backed away a step.  Feeling very confused, he tried to articulate the war that raged within his heart.  “I can’t.  You’re …It isn’t…” 
Like a sensual panther, Erik stalked toward Steve’s retreating form, backing him against a wall.  Growling with an animalistic lust, “I want you.”  Erik’s mouth descended on Steve’s neck, licking and nipping, causing a pure desire, which had him moaning once again. 
Surrendering, Steve’s hands wrapped around Erik pulling him closer of their own accord

Guest Blog with the wonderful Virginia Nelson!

Hello Folks.

Are you ready for a treat?
Today best selling author Virginia Nelson has stopped by to tell us a little about her new release: Odd Stuff.
I have read Virginia Nelson's work before and find it fun and engaging. I am eager to read Odd Stuff and I think after you read what she has to say, you will be too.

Here is Virginia!! 

Thanks so much for having me on the blog, Heather!
Odd Stuff was written in a world like our own—just like our own since I set it in the Historic Ashtabula Harbor which is only about a half an hour from my home.  The difference is that in the Odd Stuff world, there’re things that go bump and grind in the night.  Janie, my heroine, doesn’t want to be part of the paranormal world but it keeps dragging her back in. 
I was thrilled when this book won HEAReviews Best Books of 2010 and got multiple great reviews.  Hopefully readers will have as much fun with this book as I had writing it!
Blurb: Janie Smith tumbles through the paranormal world making mistakes and not keeping her sharp tongue in check. Pretending to be normal is what she has spent her whole life perfecting. But when her best friend, a witch named Mia, gets tangled in a murder investigation, Janie tries to stick to her guns and solve it without any “extra” help, be it supernatural or sexual. The hitch is that Mia is suspected to have murdered a vampire...and how do you prove you haven't killed someone who has no pulse?
About the Author: Virginia Nelson spends her days chasing three very active kids around. When she is not doing this, or plotting taking over the world, she likes to write, play in the mud, drive far too fast and scream at inanimate objects. She can often be found listening to music that is far too loud and typing her next fantastic tale of blood, sex and random acts of ineptitude. Romance, in Ms. Nelson’s opinion, is not about riding off into the sunset on the back of a horse with the knight in shining armor— it is about riding the dragon. If the knight can keep up… well, that is love.  Find me online
