A. M. Griffin is a wife who rarely cooks, mother of three, dog
owner (and sometimes dog owned), a daughter, sister, aunt and
friend. She's a hard worker whose two favorite outlets are
reading and writing. She enjoys reading everything from mystery
novels to historical romances and of course fantasy romance. She
is a believer in the unbelievable, open to all possibilities from
mermaids in our oceans and seas, angels in the skies and intelligent
life forms in distant galaxies.

For more information, please visit

Interview with A. M:

Are you a plotter or a pantser, or a hybrid?
I consider myself to be a typical pantser. But sometimes my
characters get a mind of their own and if left to do what they
please, I'd probably end of writing about aliens, vampires, ghosts,
and monkeys all in the same story. For Dangerously Yours, Kane
would not take to  Sa'Mya no matter what angle I served her up
as. About half-way through, I had to re-write their first meet and
create a spark for him and then I had to plot out the middle and
end. It turned out pretty good! I think this would throw me
squarely in the hybrid category.

In your opinion, what makes a great hero?
A great hero is someone who is secure, but has personal hang-
ups. Strong, but yet subtle. Has a fuck you attitude, but very
caring and dependable. Hot as hell, but has flaws. Can anyone say
contradictory? Hell yes! But that's what makes the hero for me.
Kane Epps is secure in his beliefs and himself, but when Sa'Mya
comes along he's forced to re-evaluate how he feels about aliens
and how he feels about himself. He hates all things alien, but in
reality he's really afraid of loving again and going through the
pain of having his heart ripped out a second time.

Do you prefer strong women for heroines, or the 'damsel in
distress' type?
So far, my heroines have been both. I lean toward really strong
kick-ass heroines. Eva, from Dangerously Mine would kick your
ass first and ask questions later. Sa'Mya, from Dangerously Yours,
would be too worried to break her nails, although she does have a
small fight scene, she's not the fighting type. Both ladies are
damsels in distress, but neither plays that role very well. Eva is a
slave, but she would hurt you if you called her such and Sa'Mya is
running from her uncle, but she thinks she has it all under control.
Neither whine nor have a "woe is me" attitude. If they did I think
I'd beat them up myself!

What book are you currently reading?
While I was on vacation I finished Beauty Awakened by Gena
Showalter and The Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I'm
also finishing up The Lady is a Vamp by Lynsay Sands.

What is one place in the world you'd love to visit which you haven't
already been?
I LOVE to travel. But when it's time for a vacation I usually find
myself somewhere with a beach. I would love to tour Europe one
day. I wouldn't consider it a vacation since I wouldn't be lying out
in a bathing suit listening to waves lap at the shore. I'd also love to
visit the great castles in Scotland and go on an African safari. Now that I think about it, I would love to visit Rome as well. Geeze, I need to start planning a trip to all these wonderful places!

Who are some of your favorite authors?
Oh geeze. I have a very long list. I love everyone from Dean Koontz to Joey W. Hill to Nalini Singh to Kelsey Cole to Sherrilyn
Kenyon. But who started me on the path of romance was Johanna
Lindsey and Jaid Black got me hooked on sci-fi erotic romance.

Quick Questions:
Coffee or tea?
Coffee on most days. Tea if it's the only thing available.

Wine or beer?
Wine. I absolutely, positively, without a doubt hate beer.

Beach or mountains?
Beach! Bathing suits and cover-ups are my favorites.

CBP-J. Annas Walker Blog Tour

Hello and welcome to my stop on J. Annas Walker's blog tour for
Scion's Avalon. One lucky winner will be chosen from all
rafflecopter entries to win a $15 GC and swag pack. Good 
luck to everyone. Tour dates are May 23 through June 7.

Title: Scion's Avalon                               
Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance   
Flame rating: scorching
Released: May 23, 2013
Publisher: Siren Bookstrand

Three years have passed since vampire princess Cassy Daniels,
Scion of the House of Dracul, gave up her title to turn and marry
Davish Ashe. Together, they live in exile with the Council of
Crones, a group of elder witches. Isolated from the world, they
found bliss. However, vampire politics soon intrudes.
Born vampire women are being kidnapped, and Cassy's next on
the list. After a failed attempt to take Cassy from the Council of
Crones' estate, magical portals lead back to the missing women.
Cassy and David are tasked with bringing them home. David is
sent after Elisabeta, Cassy's sister-in-law, who is still on Earth.
Cassy, however, has what it takes to enter the elf-kingdom of
Avalon and retrieve the other three vampires.
Can Cassy and David hold onto their bliss or will Avalon's magic
lure her from home?

Teasing her to the brink of orgasm, David stopped short of
finishing her. Cassy whimpered with need. She knew he was not
done, but the momentary frustration was almost painful.
"Please, please! Give me more," she begged.
"Oh, don't you worry, sweetheart. I'm not finished with you yet,"
he reassured her.
He lifted her up slightly and dragged her to the edge of the bed.
His hands slid from her waist down her legs to her knees, coaxing
them back apart as wide as she could spread them. In a slow and
steady movement, he submerged his cock into her waiting slit.
She loved the feel of his ridged shaft against the pliable, slipperi-
ness of her pussy. The thick rod stretched her open the entire length
of her tunnel. The way the ridge of his cockhead rubbed against
the inside of her body as he pulled out excited her more. He
angled his body to press his weight into her clit as he did this by
bracing himself on the bed. She loved this, too. Now she enjoyed
him and watched his face at the same time. He paused with only
the tip of his dick still inside her. For the space of a heartbeat, he
waited and pushed his way back in, bottoming out once more. He
repeated it twice, making her whimper beneath him before filling
her with his cock.

Born and raised among the Blue Ridge Mountains of western
North Caroline, J. Annas Walker was brought up listening to oral
history and traditional storytelling. Her hobby of writing short
stories bloomed out of this tradition. With the encouragement
of her sisters, husband, an aunt, and a very supportive cousin, she
took a chance to turn her hobby into something larger.

After acquiring a bachelors of science in civil engineering
technology, she worked for a number of years as a transportation
designer. Designing road construction projects by day, she
continued writing by night. Today, she writes more than she ever
did and blends fantasy and paranormal into romance storylines.
The fanged, spectral, magical, and furry have become everyday

J. Annas Walker lives with her husband, two teenage sons, and her
cat/office assistant.

I want to apologize for this post being late. I guess I still haven't
figured out the scheduling post thing. Seems I had 12:00pm 
instead of 12:00am. *slaps forehead*

Title: Exile
Genre: Fantasy romance
Flame rating: Warm
Released: April 2013
Publisher: indie author/self pubbed
Word count: 182k

Rachel appears to have everything-a beautiful home on Malibu 
Beach, a successful career as a film director, and even an adorable 
four year old son. But Rachel's world quickly implodes when her
son dies in a tragic accident and she realizes all her success and
money have left her alone and aching for the one thing she can't 
seem to achieve--love.

Reeling from the loss of her son and her ex's indifference, Rachel
throws herself into work and heads to Ireland to film her next
project. Once there, she's plagued with vivid dreams and a gnawing
sense of deja vu. But Rachel's tough exterior really begins to
crumble when she spots a statue in the town square and is shocked
to realize it's the exact replica of the man who has haunted her
dreams for months--a handsome stranger for whom she feels a
deep and mysterious attraction...

Will Rachel choose love even at the expense of her own sanity?
Or is her love for the man of her dreams more real than anything
here on earth...?

"Exile is a deeply romantic psychological thriller that will take you
on a roller coaster exploration of grief, logic, and the transcendental
nature of love..."  
Anya Richards, best selling author

I also had the chance to ask Muffi a few questions. 

What's the strangest (neatest, coolest, etc) thing you've ever
done?   Easy. Swimming alongside a whale shard in the 
freaking open ocean in Mexico. Those things were BIG!

What is the one place in the world you'd love to visit which you
haven't already been?    Okay, I'm going to be serious here...
Israel. I want to walk where Jesus walked. I mean, that's pretty

Do you listen to music when you write? If so, what type(s)
do you lean towards?   I ADORE Nirvana. Curt Cobain makes
me swoon. Grunge makes me dance around the room with my
air guitar. Muse is amazing. But I also love all the indie stuff
coming out.

Who are some of your favorite authors?   Oh wow. That's really,
really hard. I don't think there's enough white space for that. I've
read everything Anne Tyler has ever written. David Sedaris rocks.
Maya Angelou--you go girl! I'm loving all the new YA authors,
the ones you might have heard of and the newbies straight out of
college or wherever they come from and - Suzanne Collins and
Stephanie Meyes I'm giving you two a shout out - never mind the
haters - they're just jealous. And J.K. Rowling - you taught an 
entire generation to read - that's a hard one to top. Seriously, I
could go on and on. I love so many. So many good authors, not
enough white space.

What was your favorite subject in high school or college?  So, I
was a philosophy major in college - wait, I think I just heard a
tree falling in the forest!

What are you currently working on, or what's on the horizon?
So glad you asked! I'm working on a paranormal romance trilogy
right now that I'm really, really excited about. It's weird, it's
snarky, and it explains why the world is the way it is...including
why all teenagers are suspicious seem entirely schitzophrenic...
and it's "loosely" based on my lovely, fierce teenage daughter.
Sorry honey, but you are fascinating.

Muffi Beyer grew up on the beaches of Malibu and has spent her
career writing for Hollywood. Her credits include Days of Our
Lives, Santa Barbara, Nash Bridges, Doc, Sue Thomas FBeye
and reality shows including The Real World, Road Rules, and
Project Runway Allstars. She currently spends her days writing
her next paranormal trilogy, hanging with her kids and husband, walking her overweight Italian Greyhound, and recording her dreams for future projects. This is her first novel.

CBP-Heidi Lynn Anderson Book Tour

Today is my day to host Heidi Lynn Anderson and promo her new book, Maggie's Desire. Heidi also agreed to answer a few questions
while she was here. Please enjoy the excerpt and interview.
Thanks for stopping by today, Heidi.

Do you prefer strong women for heroines, or the ‘damsel in distress’ type? I like the strong heroine. I think all women have weak moments, but are still strong. I try to use that when developing my heroines. You can be a strong woman and need someone to lend you a hand. If that someone happens to be a sexy man so be it. ;-)

What was your favorite subject in high school or college? Science

What is one place in the world you’d love to visit which you haven’t already been? Ever since I read Nora Roberts Irish Jewels trilogy I’ve wanted to go to Ireland.

What are you currently working on, or what’s on the horizon? I’m working on a story called In Bed with Mr. Perfect. After that’s done, I’m going to start in on Julie’s Paradise.

What do you do when you’re not writing? My bills like to be paid, so I work. When I’m not doing that, I like to find new adventures and go on them with my family.

Quick Questions:
Coffee or tea? Tea

Wine or beer? Neither Diet Pepsi

Beach or mountains? Both

Summer or Fall? FALL

Pedicure or massage? Massage

Paper or plastic? Paper. Most preferred is the green bags you bring with you. I try to save the Earth one bag at a time.

Cats or dogs? Cats

Title: Maggie's Desire                               
Series: Welcome To Paradise: Book 2
Genre: Contemporary Menage
Flame Rating: Scorching
Released: 5/4/2013
Publisher: Silver Publishing

Who would have thought a plan to get the attention of one mane, would have Maggie Blake taking two men to her bed?

Maggie Blake has one desire, to experience what the way-too-sexy
Brian O'Malley has to offer in bed. Too bad, he thinks of her as an
annoyance and not as the hot willing woman she is.

Brian has one rule in life. Never let a woman too close, but club Paradise's sassy little bartender threatens to change that rule and wiggle her hot little ass into his damaged heart.

Sometimes working in a sex club sucks monkey ass.
Maggie Black leaned on the bar and sighed. "For a tax attorney, the man can move."
"Hey, can I get a Jack and Coke."
Maggie pulled her attention from the sight of Brian O'Malley's magnificent body moving sensually over the woman on her hands and knees center stage. Bitch.
She'd been watching Brian fuck women in Club Paradise for years.
Every time his talents got harder to ignore.
A glass rattled by her ear. "Oh, Maggie."
The man's annoyed tone ran like razor wire over her nerves.
She swatted his arm. "Yeah, keep your pants on."
The man cupped himself and winked. "I'm not wearing pants."
It was a damn shame he wasn't wearing at least a G-string. His pinky-sized dick flopped around like a dead fish. She bit her bottom lip to keep from laughing or vomiting, Maggie wasn't sure which. She poured pinky dick his drink. "Oh, you're not? I didn't notice," she said, handing him his Jack and Coke.
He slapped a ten on the bar and grinned. "Always good talking to you, Maggie."
Maggie saluted, checked her watch, and yawned. God, she wished she were still in bed. Her plans for Saturday included sleeping in before she had to pick up her friend Nick, from the airport. They sure as hell didn't include a seven am coll from her morning bartender. The woman quit because she couldn't find a babysitter.
It was days like this being Club Paradise's manager stunk big time. She stretched to work out the kinks in her back. Working until the wee hours last night and having to cover the lunch shift didn't leave time for the hot bath she longed for.
Maggie tugged on her tank top, turned, and looked at the writhing bodies twenty feet in front of her. Brian's crystal blue eyes latched onto her, holding her in place. Sweat glistened like diamonds on his skin, highlighting every muscular dip and valley. His perfectly cut hair dripped from his efforts. Her fingers itched to run through the midnight colored strands.
For a moment she wondered what it would be like if she was the one he crooked his finger at and let up onto the stage. Maggie groaned and shifted. She wanted Brian's hard body over hers, inside her. The desire to have his thick, hard cock probing the delicate folds of her pussy while he held her against his solid chest had a shiver running up Maggie's spine.
Lust flashed white-hot inside her core. She watched Brian ram his hips against the woman's ass. Maggie could hear the woman's cries of ecstasy over the cheers of the crowd. Jealousy burned in her gut. She closed her eyes to block out the intoxicating sight.

Welcome to Paradise 1

When prim proper Ava stumbles into a Miami sex club, she isn't expecting to find the man from her dreams. Navy SEAL Logan is just wasting time between missions until this naive and innocent woman turns his world upside down.
Of all the sex clubs, she had to walk into his. How was Ava Cullen supposed to know her prim and proper aunt was part owner of the premier sex club in Miami and a top-notch Dominatrix? When she stumbled into club Paradise and came face to face with her dream man, she had a feeling she stood on the precipice of something life changing.
Navy SEAL Logan Turner always knew he needed more out of life than the next mission. That's why he opened Paradise with his best friend Julie. It didn't hurt that he could reap the benefits of owning a sex club. That was until a sexy, doe-eyed woman walked in, making his control slip for the first time ever.

By day, Heidi Lynn Anderson is a wife, mother, and owner of a small Green-Cleaning company. By night, she spins erotic tales featuring hunky heroes and the women they love. When not working or writing, Heidi likes spending time with her husband and son, doing what Florida has to offer.
