A god who wants to get his bad boy on and the reluctant witch he hires to help… Freeing the Beast – 99¢ sale #TinaDonahueBooks #EroticParanormalRomanticComedy

I love writing erotic paranormal romance. Throw in humor, as in romantic comedy, and I’m in heaven.

When I first conceived my Taming the Beast series, I wanted it to be sexy, fun, and oh-so romantic. I liken it to Sex and the City with a paranormal twist. The ladies in the series – Becca (a not-too-competent witch), Heather (a good fairy who really wants to be bad), Zoe (a demon who intends to reform so she can suffer like a mortal), and Constance (a voodoo priestess who hasn’t been satisfied sexually in awhile) are BFFs. Even though they haven’t had luck with guys, they’re not about to give up on that one and only love.

So far, Freeing the Beast, Becca and Eric’s story, has been released.  Surrendering to the Beast (Heather and Daemon’s story) is releasing this month.

Freeing the Beast is now on sale for 99¢ until April 29. Woot!

Series Blurb:

Magic has never been as sexy or as fun. In New Orleans’ French Quarter From Crud to Stud is the makeover service for supernatural beings who want to tame their beasts so they can date mortal babes. Owned by a half-witch and staffed by a good fairy, a reformed female demon, and a voodoo priestess—among others—the place is always hopping. There’s moonlight therapy for weres, aversion therapy to keep vamps from sinking their fangs in anyone’s neck, and no end of spells, potions, and treatments. These ladies definitely put the boys through their paces. But it’s not all work as they search for their one true love. Their journeys aren’t easy, but they’re definitely magical.

Freeing the Beast Blurb:

No more Mr. Nice Guy.

For Becca Salt being a witch isn’t all magic. Too curvy and lonely, she spends her nights running a makeover service for demons, vamps, weres and zombies who want to project a more human, normal side. Their goal? To get the babes without the authorities hunting them down like rabid dogs. Once Becca suppresses the worst of their beast, they’re on the hunt and gone.

Dating has been a definite bitch for Eric Diletto. Although he’s hot and hung, he’s also one of Cupid’s descendants—a god born to believe in courtship, courtesy and all that other junk. Tired of women dumping him for the bad boys, Eric hires Becca to release his inner beast. Grrrr.

Two potions later, they’re crawling all over each other. With Eric’s newfound dominance, he’s definitely the man. And the god, who intends to take Becca here, there and everywhere. Who said sorcery and love wasn’t fun?

Warning—a witchdoctor’s nightmare. Contains potions with weird side effects, a sorceress with limited magical skills and a yearning heart, plus a minor god who wants to get down and dirty. Bad, bad boy.

The paranormal genre lets your creativity soar #TinaDonahueBooks #SurrenderingtotheBeast #TamingtheBeast #EroticParanormalRomance #RomCom

I like writing nearly every kind of romance genre. Fact is, the only ones I haven’t tried are espionage and steampunk. Who knows when I’ll try them?

I began my writing career in rom-com and I still love it. However, several years back, I thought I’d try my hand at paranormal, given its popularity. That resulted in my highly-acclaimed and bestselling erotic romance The Yearningbook one in The Wanderers series.

Since I enjoy writing para and love rom-com, I decided to mix the two sub-genres in my Taming the Beast series. Tomorrow, Surrendering to the Beastbook two, will be available for preorder. I loved writing Heather and Daemon’s story. It’s fun, sexy, and oh-so romantic. What else can you expect from a good fairy who doesn’t mind being bad, and a hot satyr who wants to look and act human? An unparalleled love match.

Surrendering to the Beast Blurb:

It’s definitely not business as usual at From Crud to Stud, a makeover service for supernatural beings. Dare we say it? Receptionist Heather—a good fairy with a pure heart, mind and body—is on the fast track to exquisite corruption with Daemon, a satyr.

Sex has never been this good or adventurous. Half man, all beast, Daemon’s the ultimate bad boy, a follower of the god of wine and a good time. Before, during and after his makeover to look fully human, he intends to put some color into Heather’s pale cheeks.

She’s one conflicted but turned-on babe. Especially as Mistress Jin, a genie Daemon commands, agrees to show Heather how to cut loose. Under the mistress’s tutelage and Daemon’s shameless lust, Heather’s gonna find out what love and having fun is all about.

Warning:

Not your typical bedtime story. May lead to indecent behavior, a taste for voyeurism, discipline and bondage, which will result in screaming orgasms. Proceed with caution.

And speaking of erotic paranormal/rom-com, I have another new release coming up in May for the Sassy Ever After Kindle World. The heroine is a witch who doesn’t want to be one, while the hero was a mortal and is now a newly-turned vamp. He isn’t happy about that either. When they meet, the complications, fun, and romance begin…

Here’s the cover art.

What if supernatural creatures needed makeovers too? #TinaDonahueBooks #ParanormalRomance

As a writer, the ‘what ifs’ in life are what get my creative juices flowing. In one instance, I was in a department store and several women were getting slathered with cosmetics for an in-store makeover session. My mind jumped from how awful it is that our culture makes women and men feel unworthy in order to sell cosmetics, gym memberships, hair restoration, and what-not, to what if supernatural creatures had to go through the same stuff as mere mortals?

Thus my Taming the Beast series was born. Freeing the Beast book one is available for preorder – ready to read October 17. Here’s the cover art, series blurb, book one blurb, excerpt and teasers. Hope they make you smile as they did with me.

Excerpt:

“You’re going to do my treatments in here?” There wasn’t any equipment around or things one might use for magic, like chicken feet, wands and other stuff.

“Before we begin, you need to read this.” She slid the papers she’d been reading across the desk to him.

He grabbed a chair and sat. “Is that the process?”

“In a manner of speaking.”

“What’s that mean?”

“It’s the contract you have to sign or nothing, and I do mean nothing, happens.”

Jesus, she was hardcore today. As a rule, business owners were that way with people who didn’t want their services, not ones who did. He bounced the inch-thick papers on his palm to test their weight. “I’m guessing this sucker weighs a pound. Am I right?”

She drummed her fingertips on her naked belly. Tiny silver stars cascaded from her navel. Each time she breathed, the jewelry caught the light.

He wanted to kiss the baubles and her dewy flesh.

She wore the same basic outfit she had when they had first met—flowy pants and a top that tied beneath her breasts, only these were in sapphire blue. The same shade as her eyes. Her makeup was no less dramatic than the last time—crimson lipstick that made her mouth undeniably kissable and black stuff surrounding her lids.

What a babe. Too bad she wasn’t into him. Maybe with the junk she came up with to bring out his beast, she would be. “Is your service usually this complicated?” He lifted the papers and hoped she wasn’t using them to run him off.

“The contract is simply full disclosure to help you understand the process. So you’re completely protected.”

A Wall Street hedge fund manager couldn’t have sounded as evasive. “Protected against what?”

Her face paled. She gestured to the papers he held. “It’s all in there. Go on, read it.”

“That could take days.”

She glanced to the right, the left and past him. When she’d run out of places to look, she dragged her attention back to his face. “Most of it’s standard legal junk. I’ve highlighted the important parts.”

“The ones that will release my inner beast.”

“In a manner of speaking.”

That again. She sounded far less confident than Eric would have liked or expected. He dropped the contract on her desk. The draft it created sent other papers floating to the edge.

Becca caught them before they fell to the floor. Her top gapped, exposing her lacy black bra. He gripped his chair and leaned up, rubbernecking.
