Hey, readers! Just wanted to pop in here and let you know about my new boxed set. Phenomenal Touch, a supernatural romance series starter collection, is now available… 😀

In this never-seen-before union of tales, you’ll discover three full mystical stories by Marie Lavender. Finally, a collection that fans can sink their teeth into! From light contemporary fantasy romance to space opera, to all out fangs and sensual moments, this starter set has everything a paranormal/fantasy/sci-fi romance book lover could want…

MAGICK & MOONLIGHT

Jessie hides her magickal secret to protect herself from Ethan, the town’s new resident. But she never imagined casting a simple spell could turn out so wrong, and oh, so right.

BLUE VISION

Brooke isn’t sure what to make of Colin, the mysterious stranger with those striking eyes in the cold Montana wilderness. But she gets way more than she bargained for when a vacation fling turns into danger for the whole planet.

SECOND NATURE

Vampires are real! Not only must Desiree come to grips with that fact – plus the perils involved in such a discovery – but also, she must contend with her odd attraction to a strange creature named Alec. Plus, there’s the notion that her origins might be far different than she once thought.

A Life Among The Pages

Behind Their Books

Welcome back to Behind Their Books. This time around we have a whole new set of questions and many great authors. The first author to answer these new questions is the multi-genre writer Marie Lavender!

fancy lineresize

Can you tell the readers a little bit about yourself?

Sure, I come from a small town in the Midwest. For privacy, I won’t say which one, but let’s just state it’s ‘Small Town U.S.A.’. Not being exposed to city life, I think, actually made me open my mind to more fantastic realms in my imagination. I have two cats, and I live with my family. I love reading romance books and shopping at different places. Don’t trust me with a credit card! LOL.

What genre(s) do you write in?

I’ve published 21 books in the genres of historical romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, romantic comedy, dramatic fiction, fantasy, science fiction, mystery/thriller, literary…

Love spells are dangerous, even more so for those who cast them…

Ethan Hamilton moves to a lazy little town in Oregon, hoping to escape his demons. Instead, he discovers a woman dancing nude in the moonlight. This woman who claims she is a witch dazzles him with her sensual presence. He thinks she’s crazy, but what if she’s not?

Jessie Anderson has been taught that her kind hides who they really are. And she has a problem on her hands. Someone knows her secret and she must do all she can to protect herself. What other choice does she have? Jessie casts a spell on a good man, a man with whom she can’t fight her attraction. The spell doesn’t work quite as planned.

Messing with free will is always a bad idea.

To top it off, Ethan’s treatment of her is so addictive. Deep down, she knows the effects will wear off, and yet his feelings seem genuine. It’s just a spell…right?

 

AUTHOR Q&A – About the Characters

Character Name: Ethan Hamilton

  1. What is your character’s profession? And your character’s greatest strengths?

Ethan used to be a police officer back in Seattle, but he is settling into a new home in Yachats, Oregon. He’s generous, honorable, and cares about other people.

  1. What are his/her greatest weaknesses?

He’s very hard on himself, and sees his flaws first rather than noticing any accomplishments. It’s also a challenge for him to trust others, or accept help when he needs it.

  1. What are some of his/her favorite foods?

Ethan is a real foodie, and in another life, he could’ve been a famous chef. He learned how to cook from his grandmother, and has made a point to expand on his talents in the kitchen. This tends to impress the women he dates.

  1. What’s a positive quality that your character is unaware that he or she has?

He is more forgiving than he gives himself credit for.

  1. Will readers like or dislike this character, and why?

Yes, I think they’ll see he’s a good man, that despite his plight, he is deserving of a decent life.

 

Character Name: Jessie Anderson

  1. What is your character’s profession? And your character’s greatest strengths?

Jessie owns a small giftshop, selling homemade candles and other New Age wares. Also as a Wiccan, she is a strong, independent soul, and finds joy in her craft.

  1. What are his/her greatest weaknesses?

She doesn’t easily trust others. She fears no one will understand her and her gifts, doesn’t even open up to her neighbors in town.

  1. What are some of his/her favorite foods?

Jessie fondly remembers the homemade foods her grandma used to make, but nowadays she doesn’t have a lot of time or energy to spend on a good meal.

  1. What’s a positive quality that your character is unaware that he or she has?

She sees beauty in the world, in the gifts Nature has provided.

  1. Will readers like or dislike this character, and why?

I think they will empathize with Jessie’s fear of someone discovering her secrets, and root for the couple’s relationship to succeed.

About the Book:

With more attention than she ever imagined, how can she tell if this is real or fantasy?

 

Chased by a group of angry men. Saved by quite a hunk.

This is not the résumé Ginger Halloway ever imagined having. But thanks to a miracle pill, which makes her size 22 body instantly sexy, that’s what happened.

Yet, now Lance Franklin is showing interest in her, and she can’t figure out if he really likes her for her, or if it’s just because of a bizarre drug.

And her wild bunch of friends, The Misfits…well, they’re always getting her into some interesting situations.

So, yep, business as usual. Except for the guy. What the hell should she do about him?

As for Lance, he…

I hope you enjoy her interview where you can find out what Marie likes to read, why she writes and which of the many genres she writes in is her favourite!

Hi Marie, so what was your favorite children’s book growing up, and why?

Hmm…that’s hard to narrow down. I’ve always loved reading books. I guess it could’ve been a cross between The Bobbysey Twins series and The Boxcar Children book series.

What is your favorite children’s book to read to children, and why?

I don’t have children, per se, just fur babies! 😉 But I took a children’s literature class in…
