Rancher Matthew Ryder knew how to make money work for him. From the
time he was twenty, he turned his father’s failing business into a multi billion-dollar
enterprise. Computers, software, finances, and corporate takeovers, he could
handle them all. But nothing said home to him like leaving the city behind and
heading to his ranch in Nevada. His father’s love of horses was his, and he had
the best horseflesh and cattle in the state. But when tragedy strikes, and his
best friend was killed in an accident on the ranch just before Christmas,
Matthew was left wondering what life was about. In town he found a pregnant
fiancée that Lance never spoke about, and he wondered what other secrets was
kept from him. Matthew found himself wanting to protect the beauty and her
unborn child. He’d made a fortune and still something was missing. Maybe she
and her baby were the people to fill that void.
Grace Reid was an ebony beauty who carried herself with poise. She was
heading back to Georgia the day Lance was killed. He was a cheating, lying
bastard, and she was better off raising the baby alone. She had fully intended
to be at her mama’s for Christmas, but her doctor had already given her the bad
news that she was too far along to travel, and now she was stuck in Roman,
Nevada. With her money dwindling and no prospects, Matthew Ryder came knocking
on her door. It seemed that Lance had kept secrets from them both. She went
from living in Lance's dingy apartment to waiting to have her baby in a mansion
on a ranch. With the attraction between her and Matthew, she wondered if she
was making another stupid mistake. Did he see her as another thing he could buy
with his money, or did he really care? She had her baby to think about. Being
tossed aside when he got bored wasn’t an option. Would love or money win when
the day was done?

thank you for blogging with me today! First off tell everyone about yourself,
your books and the genres you write.
Thank you so much for having me. My name is Selena Illyria and I write
Interracial Romance in the genres of: Paranormal, Sci-Fi/Futuristic, Fantasy
Brent… super hot, super sexy and you know I love a dragon. How did you come up
with this delicious character?
was featured in the story Dragons at Midnight. It was supposed to be a one off
story but both Brent and Fletch wanted their own stories and I just had to give
in. Who could resist Brent?
know you, LOL you can find plot bunnies anywhere, what gave you this nugget of
reading pleasure in Dragon Ugly?
story originally stared out as a one night stand where Brent wasn't searching
for his mate but then the characters hijacked the story. Can you believe it?
They kept changing it until they liked it! I was just their helpless writer
met you and you seem like the aromatherapy type. Does Clarissa have a touch of
Selena in her?
Aromatherapy can be soooo soothing and lovely. Scents can set the mood from
making you hungry to making you...well, you know. I wanted Clarissa to have her
own business, she came off to me as caring about others and what better way to
care then to help people find their calm. During that time, I was very stressed
in trying to get back into the writer's swing of thing after burn out so
aromatherapy and meditation helped a lot. I put that into the story, so yes,
what are you favorite scents?
Lavender, vanilla, sage, citrus, ginger, *goes to look at Yankee Candle site*.
Yankee Candle is my Candle porn site. I can't resist it. So how about my fave
candles to show my fave scents?
Vanilla, Lavender Lemon, Evening Air, Home Sweet Home, Island Spa, Leather, Midsummer's Night, (they
have a Bacon scent), Mountain Lodge, and let's end it off with Sage and Citrus.
6) If you had to be a shifter would you be
dragon, wolf or something else and why?
Hmmm, that's difficult, maybe a dragon shifter? Because I can fly-- no airport
scans and no lines or booking tickets or spending money on flights and I can
set fire to irritations.
else do you have in the works, have the plot bunnies completely taken over?
just turned in my first Contemporary no Paranormal in sight book. I'm revising
an old story involving a Succubus and a Warlock and I have edits for my first
book in a new series, Bachelor Auction: Mate Not Wanted. The Plot Bunnies
haven't take over but they're getting there.
we all love it what are your plans to
celebrate and what is your favorite scary movie?
Watch my favorite B movies and relax. If I'm awake at Midnight I light incense
for those that have passed on.
see all these paranormal books being made into movies. Which one of your book
would you see on the big screen and who would you pick to play your characters.
lord, I never know how to answer these questions. Um, maybe the revision I'm
working on right now? Although, I have no clue who would play Connor or Roxi. I
do have an actor in mind for a new character I've introduced in the book but
I'd have to wait to cast him but I've got to do his story first.
10) IR is becoming more popular, Sleepy Hallow, Scandal and even our favorite show Strike Back. Do you
think our genre is finally getting its props? Thoughts?
hope so! Although, they need to get that whole Stonebridge/Martinez flirtation
on track! I would love to see more IR on TV but that the relationship be of
quality and substance, not something to throw out to try and lure in viewers.
Else you’d like for our very fantastic readers to know?
Other than that you're awesome? Nothing else that I can think of.
Thank you kindly for blogging with me today. Now all you
readers get your tushies out there and buy Dragon Ugly!
honor of Halloween Here's the Mini Sequel to Dragon Ugly featured in the
Halloween Heat Menage Antho:
Excerpt Rating (PG-13),
Series: Halloween Heat II: Dragons at Samhain
Genre: Paranormal, Interracial, Ménage
It’s Samhain and Brent wants to fulfill Carissa’s fantasy of
sex in a bookshop while it’s open. With help from Fletch he’s going to make it
a hot, steamy night she’ll never forget.
Carissa only wanted to spend more time with her mate she
didn’t know what to expect when they arrived in the mountains to visit his
parents. After dressing her as a French maid, him as Highway man and their
friend Fletch as Zorro, she’s pretty sure that he’s taken her fantasy to a
whole new level.
Samhain has always been a magical time,
now it’s about to get a whole lot hotter.
Author Note: This story comes after Dragon Ugly (Coming
Jack-o-lanterns were everywhere, with candles flickering in
the wind, painting leering visages at passers-by. Brent pulled Carissa down the
sidewalk of Hidden Cavern Village with their friend and part time ménage
partner, Fletch, in tow. Brent and Carissa had been lovers for the past two
months and only included Fletch if Brent’s dragon became too pushy and decided
he wanted to join in the sexual fray. Tonight was one of those nights. Away
from Shadow Bay, the place they called home, and in the mountains that
surrounded the town, everyone was spending time with Brent’s parents for their
annual Samhain celebration.
For the past week Brent had spoken about nothing but
fulfilling Carissa’s fantasy of fucking in a bookstore while the store was
open. Their original plan had fallen through due issues with his dragon.
Despite a magical ceremony to bind the dragon within Brent to control the
beast, it was too strong. It would appear at the most inopportune times—when
Brent felt something strongly or during sex. Tonight Brent was determined to
give Carissa her fantasy, and he was going to include Fletch to do it. He’d
found a bookstore willing to look the other way and he’d scoured the shop for
the perfect spot. The thrill would be there for Carissa, and to Brent, that was
all that mattered.
Carissa’s heart thudded against her ribcage as she allowed
Brent to guide her past the shops declaring Halloween and Samhain sales and
discounts. Children dressed up in various costumes rushed past them, chased by
harried parents. None of that really registered. Brent’s solid, roughened palm
against hers, the heat rolling off his body in waves, the aura of sexual
determination and arousal coming from him wrapped around her. Her own desire
pulsed between her thighs; her nipples tightened and ached for his touch. He’d
dressed her tonight in a sleeveless French maid costume with crotchless panties
and no bra. Cool night air brushed against her overheated sex, teasing her
Fletch trailed behind them in a Zorro costume, complete with
cape and mask. Brent had decided that the Highwayman costume was more to his
liking, complete with a cape and mask of his own. Both men looked dashing and
dangerous. A thrill raced down her spine as she glanced back at Fletch, who’d
decided to go the scruffy route with a bit a coppery colored beard on his jaw.
Brent’s darker five o’clock shadow made him look just as fierce. He had
insisted that during the fantasy her wrists would be bound behind her back and
she would be blindfolded so she wouldn’t know who was doing what. Carissa hadn’t
thought that far for her fantasy, all she’d known was she wanted to fuck in a
bookstore. Brent had taken it to a whole new level.
She’d even overheard them talking of using nipple clamps to
help increase her pleasure. None of that mattered as much as being with the man
she loved, her mate. Her wolf was just happy for a change in scenery. At the
end of the night, when the clock struck Midnight, they would all shift, Brent
and Fletch into dragons and Carissa into a wolf. According to Brent’s parents,
it was a way to welcome Samhain in your purest form. New place to explore, and
a new experience to add to the ones that Brent had brought into her once boring
They continued on down the block, passing more kids and
parents and dodging late night drunks who were leaning on each other for
support as they walked down the sidewalk. The air was filled with softness and
anticipation, as if the world was holding its breath for the Witch’s New Year,
when the veil between man and the dead was the thinnest. Or in this case, when
the veil between mortals and the paranormal blended together to become one.
Tension shivered along her muscles as her arousal and
excitement blended together. She hid her eagerness to act out this fantasy and
move on to the next. Brent led the way, and she rushed to catch up with him.
“Whoa there, lover,” Carissa called out. “We have time,
there’s no rush.”
“He’s just impatient,” Fletch said as he caught up. “Slow
down man, I don’t want to look suspicious to the cops.” He nodded his head
toward a man dressed as a British Bobby.
Brent grumbled something that Carissa didn’t catch, but she
was relieved when he slowed his pace to a relaxed walk. Her muscles ached as
she matched his speed. They had been walking over uneven cobblestone, up and
down hills, for the last half hour.
“Trying to get me to lose five pounds?” she teased, knowing
that wasn’t the case.
“You know I love your curves, honey.” Brent leaned down and
pressed a kiss to her cheek. “Sorry for the rush, just wanted to get there as
fast as possible in case they changed their mind.”
Fletch laughed. “Fat chance of that, they’ve done this type
of thing before. Tor arranged for it last month when he brought Louisa with him
on a visit to his parents. So no worries.”
Carissa didn’t comment, she just kept walking. At least she
knew that this would be a safe place to fulfill this type of fantasy.
The town around them was dressed in its fall colors, deep
reds, bright golds, rich browns and even a few green leaves still decorated the
trees. Cinnamon, cloves, pumpkin and incense wove through the cool breeze that
brought goose bumps to her bare arms and legs. She tugged at her skirt, wishing
it were a little longer and that she’d been allowed to wear stockings. Brent
had said that stockings or even thigh highs would have gotten in the way. So
she dressed in the costume Brent had provided for her and followed him and
Fletch out the door with kisses and winks from Brent’s mom and dad.
“If you wanted to take me on a pleasure tour of your
hometown, you couldn’t have done it during the day and allowed me to wear more
comfortable shoes?” The five-inch peep toe stilettos weren’t doing her feet any
favors on the cobblestone sidewalks.
“Sorry, I should have warned you.” Brent pulled her toward
him and gave her a kiss on her temple. “The bookstore is in the more secluded
part of town.”
“The Red Light district,” Fletch leered.
“Sex, sex, sex, that’s all you think about,” she teased
“Well, when you’ve got a sexy girlfriend like I have, that’s
all you can concentrate on.” Brent stopped and pulled her in a for a long slow
