A Look At Seana from ‘Sunset Heat’ ( 1NightStand #178 )

Sunset-Heat
Seana Tramonto is visiting from the story Sunset Heat – 1NightStand #178.
Seana, what would you like to tell readers about yourself? For instance, where are you from? Do you have an interesting job? What brought you to the setting/point in the story where you come in? Etcetera…
* I’m from Las Vegas, but I’ve lived all over the world due to my stage acting job. Performing is my life. I love the stage! I’ve recently come back from a gig in London, and my cousin in her infinite wisdom set me up on a blind date. She’d said it’s through a prestigious matchmaking service. The story chronicles my date.
Is expressing love difficult for you? Why?
* It can be. Ever since I was stood up for an important event in my senior year of high school, I haven’t had much luck with dating and love. Because of all that, I’ve put up a wall that I’ve been reluctant to take down.
If you were taken out of the story and placed into your author’s world, what would be the first thing you’d do?
* Well, my author and I are kind of both in the same world. I live in the fictional setting of Las Vegas, where she lives in the real version of it. But if I were to hop between the parallel dimensions, I’d go meet up with C.R. Moss and her writing partner RM Sotera. I hear they’re a lot of fun to hang out with!
If you were to spend a day with a reader, what would you two do together?
* I’d show the reader the fabulous city I live in, take him or her to the Smith Center and the Springs Preserves, and we’d have some spa time to relax and get grounded again.
If you could time travel and/or live anywhere in the world, where would you go and/or where would that be?
* If I could, I’d go back to England during Shakespeare’s time and check out his playing company called the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, which was later known as the King’s Men.

Sunsets in Las Vegas ~ part 3 reprise (1NightStand books #171 & #178 )

Sunset-Temptations200x300* If you’ve read my first couple of sunset posts today, you’ll have seen peeks at my first two sunset books ~ Sunset Desires & Sunset Seduction. You’ll have also read that viewing sunsets is a simple pleasure of mine. The phenomena are such a beauty to behold and so varied in their coloring depending upon location, season, and atmospheric conditions. It’s due to living in Las Vegas that spurred on my love of sunsets. [See, it’s not all about the strip and gambling! ;)]
* But now I’m here to give you a peek into my next two sunset books ~ Sunset Temptations (1NightStand #171) & Sunset Heat (1NightStand #178). :) Ivy and Seana, the heroines in the two books and who showed up in Sunset Desires now have their own 1NS dates to go on. They’re both going to the same party up at a resort on Mt. Charleston (which is about a half hour north of Las Vegas), but they’re going to have much different experiences. ;)

~ Blurb for Sunset Temptations ~
* Can wishes come true in just one night?
* Roommates, Ivy Tramonto and Kiran Emerson, are heading out for their blind dates set up through a prestigious matchmaking service. Neither know anything about the men they’re to meet at a charity event being held in a mountain resort, but they’re looking forward to the adventure and forgetting about all their problems for an evening.
* Resort owner, Robert Bourbon, doesn’t have time to play the field, especially when he wants a polyamorous relationship. After requesting the services of Madame Eve, he’s matched with the perfect pair and believes life can’t get any better.
* Everything seems to be going great, until a mistake one of them made comes back to haunt them. Will they make it through the dilemma or will they miss out on having their true desires granted?
A Contemporary, Erotic, Chick Lit, Romance story. Warning ~ contains: Oral, anal, GLBT, M/M, M/M/F, M/F/M aspects
Sunset-Heat200x300
~ Blurb for Sunset Heat ~
* Can one night transform a woman’s life?
* Seana Tramonto feels doomed when it comes to relationships. When she’s set up through the 1Night Stand service, she’s apprehensive at best. Her concern turns to ire when her match turns out to be a man who broke her heart years ago. Old wounds are slow to heal no matter how sexy the man asking for forgiveness.
* Zachary Russo, a Las Vegas policeman, is talked into doing a 1NS date. When he learns it’s with his high school tutor and friend, the girl he stood up before the Homecoming dance, he’s determined to make it up to her. But seeing her again opens his eyes to the sexy woman she’s become. Can he prove he’s grown up or will circumstance beyond his control kill their second chance?
A Chick Lit, Contemporary, Erotic, Romance story. Warning ~ contains: Oral, M/F sex

* Aside from my love of sunsets, there’s another reason ‘sunset’ is used in the titles for the stories I’m writing, but you’ll have to read them to find out what it is. ;)
Happy Reading!

Sunsets in Las Vegas ~ part 2 reprised ( 1NightStand #123 )

* Las Vegas… I love setting stories in the city, not just because I live here but also because, like sunsets, it’s such a diverse place—lots to do and see on the strip and off. My 2nd sunset story, Sunset Seduction – 1NightStand #123, takes place in a hotel room in Las Vegas. The characters have a view of the city and mountains and both take note of the setting sun. I describe the sunset’s colors as the sun settles and dips behind the western range, setting the scene for romance. And, the cover—done in the spirit of the story, sunsets and the exciting city of Las Vegas—is hot!
The next two sunset books in the works will be set up on Mt. Charleston, which is about half an hour north of Las Vegas, but for now, here’s the info on Sunset Seduction
Sunset-Seduction200.x300~ Blurb ~
* One evening. One date. Easy, right?
* Heather Tramonto, a business woman with only her career and a quickie on her mind, is all set for her 1NS date and a bit of adult fun–no conditions, no commitment–when a surprise shows up at her door.
* Lane Stanwyck is entering the dating world after years of an estranged marriage and the passing of his hostile wife. When Madame Eve schedules an anonymous tryst for him–no conditions, no commitment–he believes it to be the perfect arrangement for his first time out in the dating field in ages. That is until he sees the woman of his dreams.
* One night. No strings. That might be a problem for this pair.

Sunsets in Las Vegas ~ part 1 reprised ( 1 Night Stand, #85 )

* Sunsets. Now am I talking about the real deal or something different? Curious now, aren’t you? ;) Read on to find out…
* Viewing sunsets is a simple pleasure of mine. The phenomena are such a beauty to behold and so varied in their coloring depending upon location, season, and atmospheric conditions. It’s due to living in Las Vegas that spurred on my love of sunsets. [See, it’s not all about the strip and gambling! ;)] I’ve seen some spectacular ones with gorgeous fiery reds, oranges, and yellows or amethyst and fuchsia to name a couple. To see a picture of this particular sunset, visit this link at my blog: http://crmoss.blogspot.com/2012/02/saturday-snapshots-more-sunset-so.html
* I’ve even seen some incredible sunsets on the cruises I’ve been on. One trip to Grand Cayman inspired me to write a few stories, including my first Decadent Publishing 1NS release Sunset Desires – 1 Night Stand, #85.crmoss_SD_MD
~ Blurb ~
* Sunset Desires ~ A blind date. A hot tropical evening. She’ll be someone he can’t forget. He’ll fulfill her ultimate fantasy.
* Gwendolyn Tramonto is stunned to learn her cousin set her up with sex on the beach and it’s not the drink. But after a several year dry spell of no relationships, no dates…no sex, Gwen decides to take her cousin up on her offer and go out on the blind date. For once, she’d like to indulge in a fantasy, be wined and dined instead of the other way around, and if she and the man ended up in bed together, that would be a nice bonus.
* Evan Cadell is looking forward to the date his uncle arranged for him through an exclusive matchmaking service and taking a one night break from work, life and all its demands. From Gwen’s profile, Evan knows what her fantasy is and believes he’s the man who can make it come true.
* But will one night in paradise be enough to satisfy their desires?

Zach from ‘Sunset Heat’ (1NightStand #178) visits

Sunset-Heat
Zachary Russo is visiting again from the story Sunset Heat.
Zach, what would you like to tell readers about yourself? For instance, Where are you from? Do you have an interesting job? What brought you to the setting/point in the story where you come in? Etcetera…
* I grew up and live in Las Vegas. For awhile there I was in the military, but I returned home and joined Metro. That’s the Las Vegas police force. Ah, the story. Yeah. Get this. This woman tracks me down, says that I have to make amends with her cousin and that to do so I need to sign up through a matchmaking service. I figure, ‘What the hell.’ It’s been awhile since I’ve been out on a date, and the place I plan to take her coincides with a case I’m working on. I can kill two birds with one stone. Hey, don’t judge. ;)

If you could pull your author into your world, what do you think would happen to them?
* Hopefully nothing bad. They’d be on ride-alongs with me. All kinds of stuff goes down in this town.
What was the best sexual experience you’ve had?
* I’d have to say it was what Seana devised on our date.
Where do you see yourself in the future? What do you hope to accomplish?
* Career wise I’d like to move up in the ranks, perhaps some day become top dog. Or maybe branch out on my own into the private sector doing PI work. Be my own boss. Relationship wise I want to continue being the best man I can be to the woman I love and be hers forever.
If you could time travel and/or live anywhere in the world, where would you go and/or where would that be?
* I’m happy right where I’m at in the here and now.
Thanks for talking to us Zach! Readers, don’t forget to comment for a chance to win a copy of Sunset Desires! And visit/comment on the other authors’ blogs for a chance to win their offerings, too!

Feeling the Heat ~ shorts part 7

* Yesterday and today I’ve been chatting about short stories and the benefit of reading them (get a taste of a new author’s writing; read on a lunch break; satisfy an urge to read when you don’t know what you’re in the mood to read…). Here’s the last book in my ‘Sunset’ series for Decadent’s 1NS series.
* The Las Vegas area is heating up! The Sunset ladies are back, and this time it’s Seana’s turn. She’s heading up to a resort on Mount Charleston with her cousin, Ivy, and friend, Kiran, and is about to participate in a 1NightStand date her other cousin, Heather, set her up on.
* Get ready to feel the heat…

Sunset Heat

* Can one night change a woman’s luck?
* Seana Tramonto feels like she’s doomed when it comes to relationships. When her cousin, Heather, sets her up through the 1NightStand service, she’s apprehensive about the blind date. Her concern turns to ire when she realizes her match is a guy who stood her up for an important event years ago. Zach had been her ultimate crush, the one she wanted to give her heart and virtue to, but because of that one fateful evening, she was never able to find another to share her heart with.
* Zachary Russo, a Las Vegas policeman, talked into a 1NS date by Heather Tramonto, agrees to being matched so he can make amends with her cousin, Seana, the girl he hurt once upon a time. When he learns she had liked him more than just as a friend, the feelings he’d harbored for her rush back. He’s in the process, though, of balancing the date with his job and has to make sure she’s having a good, but safe, time.
* Can Zach change Seana’s mind about him and have her feel for him again, thus changing her luck in life and love before his case causes problems?

~ Excerpt for Sunset Heat ~

* “I had it bad for you.”
* “So, what’s your wish now?”
* If she leaned toward him, turned just enough, maybe he’d kiss her. Did she have the nerve? What would he think of her advance?
* “Seana?”
* She closed her eyes, relishing the silky way he spoke her name. “Hmm?”
* “Your wish. You’re going to enter the drawing the charity is having, right?”
* “I can’t say or it won’t come true,” she murmured. Just move your face toward his. Do it! Though her inner diva cheered her on, she couldn’t.
* “A superstition for shooting stars and birthday candles.”
* “So? I don’t want to take chances.” Yes you do, her inner cheerleader chided.
* He brushed his cheek against hers. Warm breath caressed her ear. Restless throbs of desire pulsed in her veins. Sexual excitement curled in her womb. It’d been quite some time since feeling those particular sensations. Who’d I do it with last? Oh, the guy in the off-Broadway showing of West Side Story. Antonio something or other. She’d almost told him she loved him, but his ex-girlfriend came back into the picture, which snipped her out of it.
* Could Zach be her one? Even after all this time and despite their difficulties? Back when she’d helped him in high school, she’d wanted him and would have given him her all. She didn’t feel any different now. Turning her face toward his finally, she prepared for the first of what she hoped would be many kisses. None came. He wasn’t as close as she thought. Seana stared into his eyes, becoming lost in their depths.
* “Seana?”
* “Yes?” She breathed in his spicy, clean scent, wanting to nibble on the muscle stretching from his neck into the top of his white dress shirt.
* “Tell me more about the tutoring room.”
* “Why? Interested in playing out my fantasy?”
* Zach rubbed her knee. His touch seared her skin under her black sequined dress. “But we’re not in a school. There are no classrooms to use.”
* The scenario she’d envisioned as a young adult awaited her next move. If there’s ever a time to be bold and spontaneous, it’s now. Quit stalling and take the leap. Feeling naughty and way too frisky to miss the opportunity, she drew circles on his leg with her fingertip. “We can improvise by going up to your room or mine and pretending we’re in a classroom.”
* Seconds clicked by. Zach didn’t say a word. Wasn’t he interested? Her palms became clammy. I can’t be rejected again.

Get Tempted ~ shorts part 6

* The past couple of day’s I’ve been chatting about short stories and the benefit of reading them (get a taste of a new author’s writing; read on a lunch break; satisfy an urge to read when you don’t know what you’re in the mood to read…) & I’ve been sharing my shorter works. Here’s the third book in my ‘Sunset’ series for Decadent’s 1NS series.
* The Las Vegas area is a tempting place! The Sunset ladies are back, and this time it’s Ivy’s turn. She’s heading up to a resort on Mount Charleston with her cousin, Seana, and friend, Kiran, and is about to participate in a 1NightStand date her other cousin, Heather, set her up on.

~ Excerpt for Sunset Temptations ~

* “You know you can always tap me.”
* “True. But don’t you want to change things up? Experience something, someone different for once?”
* “Yeah, that’s why I suggested finding a third for our arrangement. Spice up our routine.”
* “I’d be all for it, but considering neither of us has found said person yet, I’m going to take what I can get through this date my cousin set up for me.”
* “So am I.” He smiled, his straight, white teeth gleaming and his olive-toned skin shining in the golden glow of the afternoon sun. “Don’t worry. I’m not gonna cramp your style. I have my own person to meet up at the lodge.”
* She loved her handsome, bisexual friend, and as long as he was on his own date, that meant he wouldn’t attempt to put the moves on hers. “Well, I guess it’s okay then. Get in the car. You can tell me all about whoever has invited you to the event on the way to pick up Seana.”
* “Technically I haven’t met him yet.”
* Processing his statement, she climbed into the driver’s seat. “What do you mean you haven’t met him yet?” She pulled out of their apartment complex and headed in the direction of her cousin’s place.
* Kiran’s gaze darted everywhere, never landing on her. “Um…. I signed up with 1Night Stand, and tonight’s my date, too.”
* Ivy stopped herself from slamming on the brakes. “Where did you get the money to pay for the service? Huh? I know you’re as broke as I am. We’ve lost our jobs. We’re losing our rental. If you had cash stashed somewhere, we could have used it for a new apartment lease. I know you want—”
* “You’re rambling.” He placed a hand on her shoulder and squeezed. “I want a partner. You’ve always understood that.” Her roommate released her, shifted in his seat, then played with a frayed string on his jeans. “Most of the guys I’ve met are self-centered assholes who don’t have sense enough to treat their significant other right. I’d like to meet a nice man, for once. When I emailed Madame Evangeline at 1Night Stand and told her I was a friend of yours and Heather’s, she was happy to accommodate me. That’s why she arranged for my night to be the same one as yours and Seana’s.”
* “And the money?”
* Silence rolled thick from the other seat. Her instincts screamed trouble.
* “Kiran?”
* He cleared his throat. “Well….”
* She’d seen and heard this nervousness from him before. That time he’d gotten into a little trouble with some bad dudes. Could he have done so again? She shot a quick glance at him. His skin seemed on the pale side. Her sixth sense dinged. “Oh no. You didn’t.”
