Guest Author...Tess Black

Hi all! Before I begin telling you a bit about myself and my book, I’d like to thank the amazing Scarlet Hunter for hosting me again today. She was kind enough to have me visit her blog this past November as well, when Heart and Soul was published. So, I’m getting rather comfy here – I just may grab a Diet Coke and my laptop and settle in for a bit. *continues typing and ignores Junebug when she gives her the blatant kitty stare of “I don’t think so.”*

We’re on day four of the Diamonds and Divas Book Tour and I have to say I’ve been having fun! I’m the caboose on this train, the newbie in the writing field. The other Divas are extremely talented and fantastically creative. Seriously. I’m learning so much. They really have their sh*t together and I’m honored to be included on this tour with them. 

If you’re following the tour – which I hope you are – please remember to leave a comment on each blog stop. It’s easy peasy and at the end of the tour you might be the lucky winner of nine ebooks; one from each of the Diva authors. For shits and giggles, I’m offering an additional prize today. One randomly chosen reader who leaves a comment on my blog post will receive a $10 gift card to Amazon. Let the commenting commence!

Just the facts, ma’am…
As I mentioned above, I’m a first time author but hope to lose that title soon. I’m also the mother of two awesome daughters who consider their mom’s taste in reading and writing to be a little off. Sexy romances with hot demons, vampires, shifters, and elves – not their cup of tea; yet, they’re good eggs and support my dream anyway.

At present, I’m working on book two of my Solaria Trilogy, which will be Tolan’s story. In case you haven’t read my current book, Tolan is a younger brother who makes a brief appearance in Heart and Soul. He’s a bit of a rebel and a devil-may-care kind of elf. You know the type; hot guy with an attitude to match and a mischievous streak a mile wide. 

Somewhat different than his brother, is my hero in Heart and Soul, the alluring and sexy Caelan Virilion. A governing member of the Elven society in Solaria, he is a man who acknowledges his responsibilities while at the same time endeavors to enjoy a simple life. After spending a short interval with Caelan and his gentlemanly ways, the more uptight Greer Ivers, a human rescued from her world by Caelan, begins to relax and come around to his way of thinking; revealing wonton desires that surprise them both.

What would you do if you were given a second chance 
at life and love?

Heart and Soul

On a mission to rid herself of her engagement ring, jilted attorney, Greer Ivers, loses control of her vehicle in a freak snowstorm. She finds herself awakening to a mind-blowing world and in the arms of a handsome man. The intriguing Caelan Virilion, a hidden witness to the tragedy from another plane of existence, discovers himself in an unacceptable situation. Spending a few days together in Caelan's world draws them closer in more ways than one and feelings they are fated surface in the heat between them. With only a few days until she must return, will they recognize risks are worth taking for true love? 


Tugging his body closer, Greer stood on tiptoe, touching her lips hesitantly to his, her heated palms resting on his hard chest. “So, this is our last chance to have wild monkey sex in the great outdoors?”
Taken aback by her query, Caelan chuckled deeply. “You certainly have a way with words, kalia’mae.”
“Shhh…forget about talking. Let’s go back to where we were a few minutes ago. I believe I stood something like this.” Leaning back against the tree trunk, she posed, raising her arms above her and hiking her chin up. “And one of your strong hands held mine in place, the other was making my breasts ache with your magical touch. Oh, and your lips. Their yumminess firmly locked with mine, insinuating you wanted to nail me to this tree with that sizable hard-on you were sporting.”
Caelan’s vision grew hazy at her wanton words, and being an intelligent man, he got swiftly back with the program; dissolving their clothes, his shaft springing into action and taking control of the situation. Moving into the stance he’d held before, he silently gave a brisk thanks to the hardwood behind her for its support. Then he went back to rolling her delectably beaded nipple between his fingers and kissing every inch of her luscious body.
“Remember always, kalia, you are mine,” Caelan whispered huskily against her neck. “I will make you forget everything else but my touch so you will hold this memory dear until we meet again,” Caelan promised.
And he did. All thoughts about returning her home fled when he lifted her legs up to wrap around his hips and thrust his rigid cock into her drenched entrance.

About Tess Black:
Tess Black was born in Massachusetts and now resides in a small town in Wisconsin. Throughout her life her secret desire to become a writer had always been pushed to the side to make room for other life events. After spending nineteen years as a stay-at-home mom for two lovely daughters she has now found the perfect time to start her writing career.

Previously an avid reader of most genres, particularly fantasy, she was surprised when several years ago a new friend suggested a book series from a genre she was unfamiliar with, Paranormal Romance. (Shout out to Kiwi!) The rest is history! Although she still reads“normal” fiction here and there, her love of paranormal romances, the edgier the better, has grown into an obsession.

Most days you can find Tess' physical body sitting with her Nook Tablet in hand or in front of her computer typing away. Her mind, though, is off somewhere in an imaginary world. She is currently working on Book Two of the Solaria Trilogy; Tolan’s story.
