Welcome Chris Winters ~ Mr. Romance, 2008

Hi! If you would like MORE than just to gaze longingly at Chris Winters, come on over to Title Magic ~ ~

Not only does Chris speak about how he loves to ‘touch’ his woman, but his current writing project is utterly fascinating.

Here is a snippet of Helen’s interview with Chris:
When we were in Pittsburgh in April for the Romantic Times Convention, some of us had the pleasure of meeting Chris Winters, Mr. Romance 2008. Chris is more than a handsome face and yummy body, he’s a lovely guy with a great sense of humor. Today we’re delighted to have Chris visiting us on Title Magic to answer our questions to give us a little insight into what makes him tick!

Stop by my blog interview!

Marilu says, "Hello from Louisiana, y'all!"

Hello! I'm Marilu Mann. I write steamy paranormal romance for Ellora's Cave. I also write contemporary erotica, but we have other blogs for that, darlings!

I hope you will take a moment to check out my May 2008 release, Changing Times. Here's a bit about the series and the first book. I'm so looking forward to being here! And I do hope you will come join us on the list! "Just Another Paranormal Monday" is a fun, very active list that only happens on Mondays! Lots of excerpts and paranormal chat for all.

Lusting Wild -- The Series

We and the beasts are kin. ~ Ernest Thompson Seton

What if we really are? What if beasts walked beside us, down city streets, in grocery stores, at the post office? What if they walked among us in human form? Would we know them? Would they show themselves to us? If they were stronger, faster, more durable, would they want to live peacefully with us or would they want to rule the world?

Some would prefer to stay hidden, staying out of our sight, living among us without exposing their darker sides to us. What of the others? Would they prefer that we acknowledge them, answer to them, work for them? What happens when the world, as we know it, ceases to exist and the shifters come out of hiding?

Sometimes the line between human and animal is blurred. Sometimes that line disappears completely. ~ Micah Keeps Vigil

When a mystery is too overpowering, one dare not disobey. ~Antoine de Saint Exupery

To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world . . ." ~ Antoine de Saint Exupery

Changing Times -- Lusting Wild #1 May 7, 2008

To keep up with release dates and cover news, join my mailing list. And drop me a note if you would like to get some recipe cards from some of my characters. They are down-home good cooking!

New Orleans sizzles when Dr. Carly Chambers finds herself in the hands, or paws, of sexy shifter and antique dealer Tony Pantera. Though the memory of his murdered human lover haunts him, Tony can't deny the sensual scent of this doctor his friends kidnapped. Carly is now in danger because of his enemies.

The Turn Skins are power-hungry shifters who want to expose themselves to the world and take over through fear. Tony and his friends stand in their way. Carly proves to be a tool for Turn Skins when they learn that Tony can't resist the attractive doctor. And Carly is happy to stroke this shifter's fur. Their erotic encounters hurtle them into the path of danger and death.

Can Tony protect his human lover from the Turn Skins who don't care if she's hurt as long as they get their way?

How Much is Too Much Realism in Fictional Stories?

I love to research and add lots of real-to-life details in my stories,
from historical romantic suspense to the urban fantasies. But how much
is too much realism? The smell of vomit and feces in the great hall of
medieval castles? *Wrinkle nose here.* Do wolves have fleas? Do
werewolves? *Makes me itchy just thinking about it!*

So join me June 25, 2008 when I talk about what to add to stories to
make them more realistic and what might be best left out!

On June 26, I’ll be giving away either a pdf copy of Winning the
Highlander’s Heart, or The Vampire…In My Dreams (YA), winner’s choice.
Drawing will be from the participants of the discussion during my
guest blog spot.

***Note: The event starts at 5:00 am but goes all day through to the
next morning. You can come at any time. :)

“Witch’s Heart Blurb” BY TABITHA SHAY (BOOK TWO)

Journey into a world where magic rules and death is the penalty for mistakes—return to the kingdom of Ru-Noc, where witches, wizards, and warlocks dwell. . .

Hannah Miller is starting over—new life, new location, and the grand opening of the Sugar ‘N’ Spice bakery with her best friend, Kirrah Walker. But Hannah soon discovers Sanctuary is not small town America. Trapped in a world of magic where humans are considered aliens—Hannah soon becomes the target of a waken assassin.

The male witch, Sage, is sent to terminate Hannah, the impertinent human who has dared to enter their sacred realm. Sage usually complies with the guild’s orders, but he faces this assignment with dread. He hasn’t forgotten what took place at the Salem witch trials in 1692 and has vowed to avoid all mortals—until he sees Hannah for the first time.

Caught up in the immortal conflict sweeping across Ru-Noc, the star-crossed lovers wage a different kind of war that set off more sparks than a witch’s wand. . .

Fall under the spell of Witch’s Heart—where Sage and Hannah discover love has a magic all its own . . .

Witch’s Heart, first place winner of the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, Inc. in



Witches, wizards and magic! Saylym Winslow regains forgotten magical powers, but is determined to ignore them. No way is she a witch; magic brings nothing but trouble. But when Talon, Waken Prince and assassin of witches is assigned to terminate Saylym by stealing her soul, she discovers being a real, spell-casting witch is only the beginning of her problems. Talon is enchanted by Saylym’s beauty and charm and refuses to do his duty. He is given a choice by the powerful Waken Guild: Handfast with the trouble making witch to keep her in line or they will send Drayke, the most ruthless waken assassin, to hunt her down.
Sparks fly in this bewitching, sexy battle of the sexes—witch-style.


Good Morning Readers,
It's always great to be invited to a new site. It took me a long time to get into blogging and I still don't blog on my own site as often as I should, but these days, I find I'm very, very busy. My first E-book, Witch's Brew was released in Sept. in 2007 by Eternal Press.I barely had time to adjust to that great event when they accepted my second novel, Witch's Heart. It was released in Feb. and is book two in the Winslow Witches of Salem Series.
It's been a blast writing this series and I have planned twelve books all total, unless I change my mind and add more. Oct. 7th will see the release of the third book, Witch's Moon. This book is a bit different than the first two because it introduces the world of vampires to mingle with my witches. I'm proud to say WB and WH have been on the top ten best seller list at Fictionwise for EP for two months running.
For your reading pleasure, I thought I'd post the blurbs from all three books, but you can read a full chapter of WB and WH at my website, so be sure and scope it out at
I'll be back in a few minutes with the covers and blurbs...Nice to meet you all...Tabs
