Tour Kick Off - Fatal Desire by @fangedfantasy #giveaway

Book #2 Guardians Series
Paranormal Romance
Date Published: March 12, 2014
Caleb is dark, hot, and commanding in human form. As a dragon, he’s a force to be reckoned with. When he witnesses the slave Lileta being beaten by his Overlord Odage, he nearly comes unglued. Without understanding why, he asks to take the slave as his own, but soon realizes his longing is more than an attraction to a beautiful woman. In a sick twist of fate, the gods have given him a demon as his mate—one he can never touch unless he wishes his own death. His only choice is to grant her freedom.
Lileta wanted to kill Caleb, but when she is freed by this tempting male, her anger turns to a desire that can only prove fatal. Even if she could claim him as her own, her dark past makes her unworthy of his love.
When their paths continue to intertwine, spiraling them to the brink of passion, can they resist the yearnings burning within them, or will they submit to their fatal desire?

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
I would love that very much, but right now it seems only a dream. I’d be happy right now to have some extra income at retirement.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
The first chapter, lol. No serious it really was. I can’t tell you how many times I re-wrote the first chapter of Eternal Flame. Crazy me didn’t save the original and I now wish I would have. Wow did it ever change!

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
That would be Renea Mason. She invited me into her group and was the first to read my work and tell me I had talent. Both she and the other ladies of Coffee Talk Writers have continued to be an inspiration.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I have a second book coming out in July from erotica series, Demon Heat. I plane to work on a new project that has been stirring around in my head before I come back to work on book 3 of the Guardians.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
I love to read paranormal romance, but with a full-time job and writing I don’t have as much time as I used to. Currently, I started Robyn Peterman’s Fashionably Dead Down Under (Hot Damned #2).

DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet:

As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble for peeking at her mother’s favorite TV show, Dark Shadows. She can still hear her mother saying, “It will give you nightmares.” She was right of course, but that did not stop Valerie from watching. As an adult, her love of the fanged creatures never waned. She would watch any vampire movie she could find.

Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered the genre of paranormal romance. Her first read was one of Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed Series and from there she was hooked.

Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.

Valerie is a member of Romance Writers of America and Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Romance Writers. She is also a member of Coffee Talk Writers and the Coffee Talk website –a site designed to support established writers and foster new talent.
