Cora Blu: Ridge Book III Brothers of Element Series (Contest)
Monday, November 17th, 2014

Thank you Delilah for hosting me today.

My name is Cora Blu and I write interracial/ multicultural contemporary and underwater romance.

In this series, the heroine’s nationality depends on the surroundings. So we get to see women from around the world become ocean queens.

Ridge is the third novel and fifth book in the Brothers of Element Series and I believe he’s my sexiest male yet. Always known as the bad brother, it’s his turn to have a mate.

Brothers of Element is the story of six tiger shark shifter’s that rule the ocean and through a curse have the responsibility of protecting the corals existence. A particular coral, Clear Coral, holds their ability to shift.

Each male, resides over a different body of water.

They have a dream where they see their mate. It’s up to them to find her before the coral begins to die. Their combined DNA is what feeds her because the females have a connection to the ocean.

Crisis: Ridge is king over the arctic protecting the shifters that call it home. Polar bears are under his protection. His human life mate tags and studies the polar bear for a living. And she’s the local bush pilot land.

Svetlana, will know him from her dreams, but she has no way of knowing he’s real until he claims her.

Here’s an excerpt of the moment before he would bring her into his underwater world:

He hadn’t bothered to shift and heal his wounds, not wanting Svetlana to leave work before he arrived. It was close to the shore, and he could get her into the ocean unseen. Crossing the street to the short expanse of open field, he stayed to the shadows, walking along the back of the brick building crunching through the surface of the undisturbed snow. He ducked avoiding the security camera under the eaves. Slipping in through the delivery door he waited in the shadows of the smaller office, while some old rocker blared out something about sucking on a chili dog… and dribbling off, whatever Bobby Brooks where so he could do what he pleased.

His moistening mouth went slack, as he gaped at the voluptuous site. Svetlana shoved the chair back and wiggled her hips swaying her arms over her head as she moved around the office. A seductive grin tugged at the corner of his lips. He’d have to find this music so she could dance for him in their bedchamber at night. Hungry for more, he let his gaze sweep around following the sensual gyrating she did when she…hell…bent over her chair to type on her keyboard. Ridge’s chest burned with the picture before him. No gap between her thighs—perfect.

When the song changed, he logged to memory the name John Cougar Mellencamp. The song changed again and someone named Rod Steward began singing about young hearts and then another asking if you want his body and think he’s sexy.

He thought Svetlana was sexy incarnate—to tease him in public and exhaust him in private. Adjusting the erection tearing at his zipper, he rested on his heels. Ridge sucked in a long draw of the cool air, calming the animal beginning to stir within him. Hell, his animal was fighting mad, wanting to get out and see what had awakened the shark.

His female was tall with curves, lots of them…well-rounded female curves.

Ridge popped into her mind to witness the fantasy of her thoughts.


Svetlana danced with him in her private thoughts…him.

I will send a paperback copy of Ridge, to one person leaving a comment below.

    Thank you every one for the sweet comments. This series is my baby. When I told my brother, eleven years older than me, about the concept years ago, and how I wasn’t certain people would enjoy a tiger shark shifing into a sexy male, this was his response. “Oh, but they’ll fall in love with a corpse and a dog…woman write the book.” 😳

    wow,I read a LOT of shifter books and the only water ones I have seen were selkies,I would have never even thought about a shark as a shifter,although I suppose most animal could be one,well at least the somewhat sentient ones lol these look really interesting and I will check out your site and sample one and see how they go,hopefully they are hot cause that’s the way I like them and if you are on Delilahs blog I assume that you write them that way lol,if it looks as good as it sounds I will pick one up and review it on amazon as thats where I review everything I read!!

    Awesome, Sharon. Dagger is only .99cents. Start there. 🙂 Each heroin is a different nationality depending on what body of water she’s from. Dagger’s is African American. Blade’s is Japanese. Ridge’s is Russian, Alaskan.

    Love this premise. And, love your synopsis! I’ve read shifter books of all kinds … the only water shifter was a selkie & a water dragon. I’ve just added this series to my TBR list & wishlist both. Would love a copy of Ridge!! Thanks for the chance!! 😛

    Saw the comment above that Dagger is only $0.99…downloaded it. I’ve got a few (LOL! ok, more than a few) books in front of it, but I really liked the concept. Best of luck.

    Just bought Dagger and Max for my Paperwhite and can’t wait to start reading! One question, though–where can I purchase Desmond? I checked out All Romance and it’s not available on that website. Thanks!

    (Also, just as a side note regarding your photo in Deliah’s Daily Digest–at a quick glance you could be mistaken for Taraji P. Henson!)

    Glad you got a chance to catch that, Charlotte. Believe me I understand about the list. I purchased a book this morning when I should be writing.
    DG, I’ll go to AllRomance and check it out right now. 🙁

    Here’s Desmond link on Allromance. It’s free there. Amazon will not make it free, so it’s .99 there. A short story. Actually it’s an apology scene between a bullshark shifter and his dolphin mate.
