I accidentally stumbled upon her books in Borders one day.
I was just looking for a new book, nothing major...
Taking my time... strolling the aisles... when I saw the spine.
Plain and simple...
Although something was unique... The title... One name... Simple... Plain...
You have to be dead to think I was not bring this home with ME....
Then I read the blurb and had my first blushing episode in Borders.
Oh yeah, he was coming home with me...
Wanted to make sure there was no mistake what I meant...
This book is not leaving my house... NO way, no how...
And DO NOT Even think about borrowing it....
Hell to the NO!!!!!!!
She was my crack and I her addict.
I had to have more... HAD TO ~ YOU HEAR ME!!!!!!
So, when I typed in...
I thought I hit the freaking mother load....
He has brothers and nephews!!!!!
Holy Mother... Flipping Hottness!!!!!
Brothers... More.... OMG!!!!
So, I immediately went back to Borders...
and bought them alll!!!!!!
Welcome Ms. Amber to the Hussy Lair!!! I want to thank you for coming over and hanging out with us today!!!
I found these few paragraphs at Ms. Amber's website.... This is a little of what she had to say about herself....
I write erotic historical paranormals romances for Kensington Aphrodisia. I have a great husband, cats named Chelsea and Biscuit, and a bf named Eva. My sister and mom are two of my closest friends, and we all love animals.
I'm also a museum junkie and am intensely interested in history and archeology. When I was an art history major at university, I became fascinated with Greco-Roman artifacts. I’ve visited many archeological sites and museums in Italy and Greece. All those ancient urns, frescoes, and amphorae decorated with satyrs (the carnal followers of the Roman god of wine, Bacchus) and maenads celebrating the annual grape harvest inspired The Lords of Satyr novels.
I wrote Nicholas — the first novel — not knowing if there was a market for the type of book I was writing or if anyone would publish it. But I was intrigued with my story as it unfolded, so I forged ahead. Once the rough draft was completed, I went to an RWA conference. Afterward, I submitted three chapters of Nicholas and a series summary to Kensington. Six months later they called with an offer.
Writing this series has been a pleasure, and I've written five Lords of Satyr novels thus far. In order of publication, they are: Nicholas, Raine, Lyon, Dominic, and Dane. Bastian and Sevin are under contract and in progress.
I'm not sure if there will be more beyond these, but I love hearing from readers with their thoughts on what characters they might like to see get their own novels.
I hope you enjoy these books. Let me know.
Well, I named the heroine of Dane, The Lords of Satyr after my best friend, and she doesn’t know it yet!
How cool is that!!! I hope you direct her here so she can see the news!!!
So, if you could sum up who is Elizabeth Amber is in five sentences... What would they be?
For those that are new here at the Lair and with your writing... could you please tell us about your writings... what are your books about?
Sure…In the 1800s, half-satyr/half-human lords guard ancient secrets in the heart of Tuscany’s and Rome’s centuries-old wine country. They receive a letter that sends them in search of endangered half-faerie/half-human brides. For not just any woman will do as a Satyr wife. At times, these satyr lords change physically and are driven by the darker side of their natures to indulge in a nightlong ritual in a sacred gathering place ringed with statues of Bacchus, nymphs, dryads, and fauns.
And believe me ladies... You do not want to miss these stories. The story themselves are quiet delicious and coming from this hussy... well.. *grinning like the cat who ate the canary** let's just say... you really need to put these books on your TBB list!
Could you tell us about your heros... help those who have no idea who they are or what they stand for... fall in love with them....
Nicholas and Dominic are both very sexual and are driven by duty and neither expects to find love. Raine and Lyon enjoy women, but don’t want to wed. Raine has been wed before to a woman who betrayed him, and Lyon simply enjoys women too much to settle on one. Dane—the hero in my release--conceals a demon within him that subjugates him during any sort of carnal encounter. As he fights insanity, sexual frustration, and this demon with an inhuman strength, he finds an unexpected love in the very unusual Eva.
These men oozzeee out SEX A ON STICK!! The whole lot of them... they are just... wow! Yeah, that good...
Ms. Elizabeth, was the storyline of The Satyr's easy to write? Did they write themselves....
Once I know who the satyr in each book is—his inner character, his desires, his longings, what moves him to anger, laughter, love—then his story become easy to write. Until I know who he and his heroine are, writing the book seems like a huge mountains to climb.
Do you have anything else brewing besides the The Lord of Satyr's family?
Yes! I have an idea for a new series that’s a little different, but for now I’m concentrating on writing the next two books about Dane’s brothers, Bastian and Sevin.
Oh crap... Two more men to read about... Honey, you have just made this hussy's day!!
Okay.... Nice questions over... hee hee... Smutty time...
Your books gave me fits of blushings, tons of paper cuts and some serious hot flashes!! Yea, it did all that. What books have done that to you lately?
I’m so glad you enjoyed them, Cecile.
*Enjoy them... Honey it is more like devour them!!!*
When I think of erotic romance I think of Lora Leigh. She is amazing. And so many others—Anna Campbell, Lisa Valdez to name a couple. Oh, and I’ve just discovered Nalini Singh’s books! (fanning self)
Now you see how I feel about your books, lol!!
In one book, you have two men sharing one woman (no, I am not telling you will have to find out yourself, lol)... can we expect more menage trios, or anything like that in the future books?
Probably. I let the sex scenes grow out of the characters. Nicholas, for instance, was very sexual and he was accustomed to having sex how and when he liked, so he continued to do so even after he met Jane, sometimes with other women, which hurt Jane. But then he fell in love with her and no other woman than she would do. In my new release, Dane, one of the scenes takes place in a passion salon owned by Dane’s brother, Sevin. So there are some voyeuristic carnal things going on all around Dane and his heroine, Eva
Hot damn.... I soooooo can not wait for Dane now. A taste of this book and I am drooling already! You are an evil tease, lol!
Did you ever think you would be writing erotic novels? Who are your go to erotic authors?
As a teen, I read Georgette Heyer, , and Victoria Holt, and I occasionally thought about writing a romance, but never did. The idea for the Lords of Satyr series came in those moments just before I was falling asleep one night. I didn’t write it down at first, but I kept thinking about it and embellishing it in my mind. Then I began taking notes, and eventually I finished Nicholas and a series proposal.
If you could be seduced by any of your heros.. which one would it be and why?
(Yeah, I am evil, lol).
Oh, you are bad, Cecile. :o) I love alpha males, and each of the satyrs has a different appeal. So maybe more than one?
**hot damn... my kinda woman.. especially with all your damn sexy - sex on a stick men - why chose just one...**
Nicholas because he’s the oldest and is verrry experimental; Raine because he’s a wounded soul with a deep, sexy inner strength; Lyon because he has a sense of humor and is loyal to his woman--oh, and because he’s hot; Dominic because he protects his world without complaint and doesn’t expect a woman’s love of his own; and Dane because he’s complicated, tortured, and alpha, and he fascinates me.
Just in case you need some visual aid....
Okay.. quickie time.... You ready??
Milk or Dark Chocolate: Both, yum.
Hugs or Kisses: Hugs. Kisses. No, hugs…
Sunrises or Sunsets: Sunsets. I’m a night owl.
Emails or Texts: Emails
Paperbacks or Ebooks: Paperbacks until I find the perfect e-reader.
Cakes or Brownies: Cakes—the white wedding kind.
Okay.. now finish these sentences:
When life hands you lemons....friends and family help.

When I dream, I dream....deeply.
My favorite thing to do....travel to Europe.

What is going on.... What is she writing....
Bastian is Dane's older brother, and he's the guy I'm spending my time with these days. There's something about an eldest brother that is so appealing. They're inherently powerful—the one the other brothers look up to. I'm enjoying this one immensely.
