MAKE SURE YOU READ THE EXCERPT AND ANSWER MARGIE'S QUESTION, AND YOU COULD WIN NOT ONE, BUT TWO BOOKS!
So, WELCOME MARGIE CHURCH!
In her own words:
Q. How has your journey in publishing been? Anything you would or wouldn’t do again?
When you sign that first contract, you are opening a small business. I've had problems with publishers that I couldn't predict when I signed the contracts. I wish I didn't have to deal with the business as much as I do, but it's part of the job. I've had three best sellers and gotten some wonderful recognition. Those things make it worthwhile to put up with the crap.
Q. What advice do you have for someone who wants a career in writing?
You have to take it seriously if you want to succeed. This profession is extremely competitive, subjective, and demanding. There're going to be a lot of negative days and moments. If you're committed, you'll learn how to put those things in perspective and learn from them.
Q. What other interests or hobbies do you have outside of writing?
I love flower gardening, music, snowshoeing, stargazing, fishing, and walking.
Q. Do you have a favorite story of the ones you’ve written, either published or not? Why?
Like most authors, we tend to love the story we're writing, but probably Dangerous Love, just because it was such a complex story with world-building and paranormal creatures and behaviors. I was proud of myself for creating a believable story that could actually happen if vampires existed.
Okay...enough with the business questions! How about some fun stuff?
Q. If you won the lottery, what is the FIRST thing you’d do? What would you buy and why?
I'd buy a ticket to Australia. I've always wanted to see the Outback and the Great Barrier Reef.
Q. When YOU read, what do you like to pick up?
Q. Tell us one thing about you that might surprise us...it can be a secret...we won't tell. :)
I write for a nuclear power generating plant. That's my day job.
And of course, now's my FAVE part! Let's here about that lovely new read!
Love's Storm is the second book in the Razor trilogy. I'm co-authoring these books with K.B. Cutter. It's got a unique premise – polyamory – which means the ability and permission to love more than one person. In Love's Storm, Amy, Bryce and Raine find out what the cost will be for their love. It's an emotional rollercoaster of love, desire, BDSM, hatred, laughter, jealousy, fear, rejection, and commitment. We hope you'll check it out.
((Btw, I LOVE this cover ))

The revealing trilogy of romance and polyamory continues! Their secret is out, and it's open season on Amy and Bryce's decision to add a third person to their marriage. All the talking in the world can't convince critics that Amy and Bryce's marriage is rock-solid, and there are no secrets between them. Business associates, friends, and family condemn their choice to live and love in a polyamorous relationship with Raine, a FemDom. Others meddle to undermine Bryce's business and marriage. Even Raine's Master thinks she's making a huge mistake. With no allies, and scorn coming from every direction, love and determination must lead Amy, Bryce, and Raine through love's storm. Their journey began in Razor: Desire's Edge and continues in Razor: Love's Reflection.
Raine reached for a mug in a cupboard. The hem of her long T-shirt rose with the motion, exposing one, prefect ass cheek.
Bryce stood at the kitchen doorway, arms folded across his bare chest. "Remind me to put everything on the highest shelf."
She turned with the mug held between her breasts, and peered at him with an arched eyebrow. "I'm surprised you're awake. I didn't think you'd have the stamina to get out of bed."
Bryce snorted. "The lady forgets one of my talents is endurance."
Raine placed her mug on the granite island. Her tongue flicked over her upper lip as her gaze lowered to his crotch.
"Bit cocky, aren't we?"
The throaty, sensual tone of her voice aroused him. Her regal poise commanded his full attention, as did her lithe body. Full breasts strained against cotton fabric. The hem of her shirt barely concealed her exquisite, trimmed mound and rounded ass.
Bryce clenched his jaw. The time for playful banter ended. He closed the distance between them in long, determined strides. He slid his hands slid under the shirt, cupping her breasts.
Raine looked up at him, eyes shimmering.
Did he detect a lustful spark flaring in those liquid onyx depths?
With a fingernail, she traced his jaw line. "Are you hungry, Mr. Gage?"
Bryce leaned in, nuzzling her nape. "Famished."
"Your beard is scratching me."
He pulled his head back, offering a rueful smile. "Sorry for the abrasions."
Raine snaked an arm around his waist. She scraped his lower back with her fingernails hard enough to get his attention. "My submissive is forgetful. I'm not a delicate flower petal, easily bruised."
Her fingers trailed up his spine, then slid into his hair, and caressed his scalp. Arching her back, she applied gentle pressure to the back of his head, guiding it forward. With her free hand, Raine pulled up the hem of her T-shirt, exposing a breast.
"I want you."
Bryce emitted a low growl, his unshaven face grazing her areola as he hungrily suckled the nipple.
"Uh, you two, get a room. Oh wait, you have one."
At the sound of Amy's voice, Bryce jolted upright, as though a bolt of electrical energy lashed his backside. He offered his wife a weak smile.
My God, why do I feel like a teenager busted by my parents for making out in the living room?
Raine pulled down her shirt, and gracefully smoothed the material over her hips. She opened the cupboard, and took out another coffee mug. She glanced over her shoulder. "Hey, girlfriend. Coffee? Freshly brewed."
Amy leaned against the archway, stifling a yawn. "Good morning. Yes, please."
Amy walked into the kitchen, and sat at the table.
Bryce watched her gaze follow Raine's fluid movements. Her nipples poked the flannel nightshirt she wore. Her sleep-tangled, blond locks spilled to her shoulders. Hooded eyes and bedroom husky voice gave the appearance she'd just left her spent lover in tousled sheets.
If I play my cards right—
"Bryce, be a dear and pour Amy some coffee."
Raine's soft, yet authoritative voice dispelled the erotic fantasy unreeling in his mind. "Sure."
He busied himself with pouring milk into the coffee, and then stirred in a teaspoon of sugar.
Raine walked to Amy, leaned over, and gave her a quick a kiss on the cheek. "You feel okay? You seem worn out."
Amy sighed. "I'm exhausted. Got in late last night from my business trip to Connecticut. The new client made me jump through a ton of hoops. I think the woman is part vampire. She nearly sucked the life out of me. To top it off, there was a bus accident on I-95 that snarled traffic for miles. I'm glad you kept Bryce company last night. Sorry for my snarky remark earlier. I didn't mean to come off cranky. If my husband gets his tight ass in gear, the coffee might perk me up."
Bryce grimaced. "Yeah, right, sorry." He brought the mug to her. Bending down, he kissed her fully on the lips. The mixture of scents—Raine's, Amy's, and his own—made him moan.
Amy glanced at him, her lips curling in a knowing smirk.
Raine sipped her mug, the steam wreathing her dark features. "I'm going to skip breakfast this morning, and go take a shower before I head out to my condo. I have so much work to do, and I need to make sure my plants are more than withered stalks."
She walked over to Amy, and stroked her arm. "You kids have a good morning. I'll catch up with both of you later." Raine flashed Bryce a mischievous grin.
Amy smiled while squeezing Raine's hand. "Bye. Thanks for the coffee. I'll catch up with you later."
