Describe five of your heroes/heroines:

The Lords of Satyr is an erotic historical paranormal romance trilogy about three brothers. Book 1 is Nicholas. Book 2 is Raine (March 2008). I'll let the characters speak for themselves . . .

Nicholas: hero of NICHOLAS, book 1
As eldest brother, it's my duty to sire an heir and to safeguard ancient family secrets in the Satyr vineyard in Tuscany. At the age of 29, I'm well aware I'm handsome, charismatic, and a deeply sexual alpha male. When a letter arrives with news of three half-faerie daughters are in EarthWorld, I see it as an opportunity to sire an heir. But Jane turns out mean much more to me than a means to that end. BTW, Romantic Times said this about me: "The leading man is the sexiest one this reader has read in a long time!"

Jane: heroine of NICHOLAS, book 1
Since the age of thirteen I've been plagued by abilities I cannot control. My younger sister, Emma, will soon turn thirteen and I fear she'll be cursed by such abilities as well. My aunt insisted I wed Nicholas Satyr. On our wedding night he made me want him. But he keeps me at a distance. I've learned he continues to engage his mistresses and though I'm devastated by the news, I am not defeated. I will make him want me and me alone.

Raine: hero of RAINE, book 2
When my first wife rejected me and spread rumors about my family, I learned a hard lesson. Now it seems it's my duty to wed again in order to protect a half-faerie named Jordan. I've found her in Venice, but she's far different than I expected. And I'm in competition for her with another suitor. The Satyr change physically once a month during the Calling and our carnal needs lead us to indulge in ritualistic sex in a secluded glen on Satyr land. Will Jordan turn away from me as my former wife did?

Jordan: heroine of RAINE, book 2
I've been living a lie for nineteen years. No one knows my secret, and they mustn't find out for it would destroy the life my mother has carefully constructed for us. But she doesn't seem to care that my life is in danger because of her lies. Tonight I've run from my persecutors, straight into the arms of a stranger who wants to become my lover. I don't want to know his name or tell him mine. He wants me in his bed tonight, but we'll part tomorrow. We'll have to. He can't discover my secrets. BTW, TwoLips Reviews called me: "…the strongest heroine I have ever read."

Lyon: hero of LYON, book 3
Why do I have to wait until October 2008 for my own book? I'm a good guy and all the ladies adore me. I adore them, too. Every woman is intriguing and delightful in her own way. I'm heading for Paris, looking for the third half-faerie. I'll care for her and wed her as my brothers insist I must. But I hope she's not expecting love.

Five reasons to read your books:

* very erotic
* intertwined stories of 3 alpha male brothers
* well-researched
* in a lovely Tuscany setting
* about lusty, winemaking satyrs with secrets

Hi Elizabeth,

I enjoyed reading your Fantastic Five's, I agree with you on the computer slave, once I'm on it's hard for me to walk away.Lol

My question for you is:

Is there a genre that you haven't written, that you might try?

Hugs, Danette

Elizabeth Amber said...

Thanks Danette and Tetewa!

Danette, I've got a 4th book to go in this series, but I've already started thinking about the next ideas beyond that. Not sure what genres they'll be. But they'll be hot!
