The summer just got hotter!

Jay Ellison never fails to come through with new, sizzling hot women’s erotica! The wolves are back…and so are the Fae. Prepare for a huge dust-up: War, passion…transformations.

When the moon rises, passions run wild…

The Blood Moon pack has a new alpha in the sexy, efficacious Beaumont Talbot III, otherwise known as The God of Wolves–a man whose heart was eclipsed decades earlier. Beau has been tasked with building up and protecting the most powerful pack on the east coast. But trouble is brewing between the Blood Moon boys and the Tsukasa, a rival werewolf pack. The appearance of Raine, a Kitsune with a troubled past, can only stir the pot. The punk-like Tsukasa want Raine for their own nefarious purposes. Now Beau has to protect Raine, his new pack…and his own wounded heart, a task that may prove impossible even for the God of Wolves.

Excerpt:

Beau moved quickly in the dark. Within seconds, he had Raine up against the wall by the door, pinned, making him gasp. His loamy male scent made Raine’s head spin, a combination of deep woods, light cologne, and wolf. Beau studied him intently, his eyes more yellow than brown now. “I’m not always a gentleman,” he said in a lazy, halcyon whisper that made Raine think of old vintage movies about overly suave Southern gentlemen. His singsongy voice was lulling in its cadence, and, very soon, Raine started to relax. Beau ran his thumb down the curve of Raine’s slightly pointed ear, nuzzled the side of his neck, turned his head. He was gentle but persistent. After a hesitant moment of exploration in the dark, they kissed harshly, fiercely.

A great gasp rose up in Raine’s throat. He pushed his body close against Beau. Beau bit at his open mouth. His sharp, elongated canine teeth nibbled Raine’s bottom lip.

Raine shuddered with anticipation. He had never felt anything so visceral in his life. It was like Beau was stealing the very breath from his body with that kiss, leaving him boneless and weak and painfully wanting. He instinctively curled his tail around one of Beau’s legs, nearly warbling in response…

A Shared Universe

There’s a lot of talk about shared universes in fiction these days. The movies are doing it a lot, from superhero movies to the resurrection of the old monster movies. A shared universe is a series of stories all set in the same world or universe, sometimes characters cross over and make appearances in each other’s stories, sometimes they even help each other resolve a conflict.  Even TV series are doing it and if you were a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer you undoubtedly heard of the Buffyverse.

Well, did you know, my series are subtly part of a shared universe? That’s right. The wolves of Redfern, in The Beast Within series, temporarily hide out in the hometown of the witches of Raven Cove.  The Witches of Raven Cove have a truce with the wolves that live in the mountains of Redfern….and the Fallen Angel (Demon) in The Warring Hearts Trilogy returns to Earth in the town of Blackstone….a town that is just a stone’s throw away from Raven Cove.

And there’s more… once The Warring Hearts trilogy wraps up, a new evil will rise that will threaten all of these heroes. A new story is unfolding and the Wolf, The Witch and the Demon will have to join forces to stop it and save everyone they love. This new series right now is called “Cross Worlds” and will be my most ambitious tale yet.

So, why not get a jump start and lose yourself in my paranormal romance stories… some of the first books are even FREE!  Check them all out below for yourself and pick up something to read over the holiday weekend enjoy!

Author Interview: Laura Lux

I want to welcome Laura Lux, the author of several gay fantasy tales–from medieval and historical fiction to the new Elf Thief series, to the J. Ashburn Blog. Thank you Laura for taking the time to do this interview.

When did you first start writing fiction? Oh, I’d say when I was a teenager. I doodled a lot in school, scribbles, sketches, poems, short stories. I loved telling stories.

Did you have any formal writing training or education? No, not really. Just lot’s of practice at home.

What drew you to fantasy fiction?  My mom. Lol. She and I used to watch all kinds of fantasy movies when I was a kid from Conan the Barbarian to old seventies movies like The People that Time Forgot and At the Earth’s Core. But some of my favorites were the animated stuff like The Last Unicorn, Wizards and The Hobbit. The Hobbit was one of the first fantasy books I read. I get all of my talent from my mom, she encouraged me to write and she was a little bit of a writer herself.

What made you decide to feature gay characters in your work? My older brother was gay and I always wanted to feature more gay characters in my work because I felt they weren’t really given any attention. In fact, not many appeared in fantasy stories at all. So I started writing stories about gay men finding love in dangerous fantasy worlds.

Where do your ideas come from? I definitely know I was influenced by the classics in fiction and on TV but I try to make the stories my own. I mix influences and come up with other cultures similar to Vikings, Celtic tribes, Roman and Greek. Then I add some mystical elements or mythology. I find it to be really fun.

Tribal_Law_LL

What do you do to tackle a project? Do you write outlines or keep it all in your head? No outlines for me. I write as a I go. Sometimes I jot down notes as I work on the story but mostly I see the scene in my head and just report what I see… lol.

Did you ever feel uncomfortable writing the “steamy scenes?” I was waiting for this question! 🙂 At first it was strange but now it’s no big deal. I must admit that I get a thrill out of sprinkling those loves scenes throughout the story.

How does your family react to you writing erotic romance or do they know? They know I write. That’s about it. I just tell them I write fantasy fiction and that’s it.

Have you ever thought of trying another genre? Sometimes. I like science fiction and horror too. I may even try some steampunk, not sure yet.

What do you like to read when you’re not writing? I like Tolkien, Ursula LeGuin, I also like discovering new authors in fantasy and sci-fi fiction.

What current projects are you working on? Right now I’m in the middle of a new series about a gay elf thief. It’s my most ambitious series yet. Most of my tales have been two book series. So far with this one I have 3 tales with my new elf character and I’m hoping for a bunch more. It’s called Tales of an Elf Thief.

What does the future hold for Laura Lux’s fiction? Many more gay fantasy tales I hope!

Where can readers find you and your work? I have a facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009505140504   Other than that… you can find me on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. 🙂

Girl, we need to get you an official website! Thanks so much for taking the time to do my interview, it was fun for me, how was it for you? Lol. Thanks for having me J! It was so much fun.

Check out Laura Lux’s titles below and get lost in her fantasy worlds.
