Welcome Calista Fox

I am so happy to have my good friend, the talented writer Calista Fox here as my guest.  Calista has back to back releases out right now and I'm thrilled to have her here talking about them.  If you have not yet read a Calista Fox book, you need to start.  What I love best about her stories are her men.  There, I said.  She gives good man.

I asked Calista to talk about her new books and here's what she had to say:

THUNDER AND LIGHTNING by Calista Fox


On Sale January 29, 2010 at http://www.ellorascave.com/

Calista:  My first novella of 2010 is a paranormal romantica™ titled, THUNDER AND LIGHTNING. As the name suggests, nature’s elements play a big part in the story, but in some very unexpected ways! Here’s a little about the book:
Cane McAllister is haunted by the alluring scent and exotic beauty of Savannah newcomber Bev Goitia. The rich aroma of her blood and the heat of her skin make him crave to be human, to touch her, to love her. But Cane’s curse is of his own making, for he chose to live an eternity as a vampire—and knows from experience how detrimental personal encounters with mortals can be. Tormented, Cane stalks the most desirable quarry he’s known in his two-hundred-and-twenty-seven years of existence. Desperately wanting Bev. Knowing he can never have her…

Bev has her own cross to bear. Her neighbor, Cane, is everything she’s waited for during her exceedingly long, immortal life. But he’s a mortal soul—taboo for someone gifted an extended existence by the Aztec Gods, her distant ancestors. She is also bound by the ancient spirits to keep her immortality a secret—absolutely no one can discover her true nature, or the “gift” will be revoked.

One hot, sultry, Savannah night changes Cane and Bev’s lives forever, as they give into their unrelenting passion. Their secrets are inadvertently revealed, altering both their courses, trapping them in a deadly, doomed affair. And when the sins of Cane’s past come back to haunt him, putting Bev’s newly mortal life in grave danger, Cane becomes her only hope for survival. He is forced to make the most difficult decision of his entire existence. But will saving her soul mean damning it for all eternity?

Erin:  Wow!  That sounds great.  I've already got it in my shopping cart.  What about your second release?

THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE

On Sale February 1, 2010 at http://www.eredsage.com/  

My second 2010 release is a futuristic erotic romance. Han Solo and Princess Leia were never this hot! The story is set on a planet in the Andromeda Galaxy known for its mood-enhancing elements. Here’s a little bit about THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE:

To get the legendary commander of the Protective Forces to return to an intergalactic fight, patriot Gizelle Sobera must use every power of persuasion she possesses against D.T. Vaughn—including orchestrating the ultimate three-way seduction…

The year is 3091 and blockade runner Gizelle Sobera is determined to recover the largest lost treasure in the history of three galaxies. Claiming the bounty lost on PX330 (aka the Pleasure Planet) would help to supplement the resources and provisions needed by the Protective Forces of the Milky Way Galaxy as its inhabitants fight invading forces. But the fortune has already been found and she knows exactly who has swiped the treasure from under her nose—D.T. Vaughn, a pirate who’s stolen a variety of booty from her…
