Congratulations, Ebony Morton! You’ve won a free download
of Elle James’s HAUNTED!

* * * * *


I love visiting New York City. Last year the Romance Writers of America conference was held so close to Times Square I could see it out my window…all.night.long…. When they say it is the city that never sleeps, they are right! All night long, lights shine, people come and go and taxis honk.

I love it! As a writer, I live in my own little office, barely socializing with anyone until I come out of my cave for conference. So what a difference to go to New York City.

The city is so rich in culture, a variety of people and interesting places that stories abound. I returned home with the challenge to write a proposal for a paranormal story for Nocturne Cravings. Immediately, I knew I had to set the story in New York City. I wanted a kick-ass heroine and a sexy-as-hell demon hero. Having just walked through the streets, down some back alleys and through the shadows of skyscrapers of Manhattan, I couldn’t think of anywhere I’d rather write about. Thankfully, Harlequin bought my story idea and this month HOT DEMON NIGHTS released. ~EJ



!!!PRIZE ALERT!!! – I’ll give away a download of Elle James’s HAUNTED to one lucky commenter. So leave a comment on this post for your chance to win!




Rookie cop Katya Danske didn’t ask to become a member of Manhattan’s Paranormal Investigative Team or to be partnered with a sexy-as-hell demon. Then a zombie literally drops into her lap and she’s recruited to help Blaise Michaels battle an impending zombie outbreak.

Blaise is as exasperating as he is arousing, but while Katya’s head tells her she should keep her distance, her body wants something else entirely. Forced to work closely together, their investigation takes them into the darkest shadows of the Manhattan underworld and makes their attraction impossible to deny. But with the zombie threat rising, their hot nights together may be their last…

    New York is always so overwhelming when I first arrive. The sights and sounds are amazing.

    Hor Demon Nights sounds good.

    I am originally from NYC and I miss it. I now live upstate in New York but I still cannot get used to the quiet. Who knew there were animals besides pigeons , cats and assorted rodents? LOL!

    Sounds like my kind of book…I’ve never been to New York, but I did live in Las Vegas for 2 years. Talk about a city that NEVER sleeps! :lol:

    I’ve only visited NYC once, but look forward to doing it again sometime–there is so much to see and do and eat at all hours of the day and night! What a fun city to read about! Yay, Elle/Myla!

    I only live a couple of hours from NYC but until 3 weeks ago, I had never visited for pleasure just business. Although, being a chaperone for a 4 day class trip may not be pleasure!
