Celebrating A New Anthology Of Erotic Paranormal Stories

Today at our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of a new erotic paranormal anthology!

KISSED FROM BEYOND - An Erotic Paranormal Anthology with stories from Stacey Kennedy, Elise Hepner, Amber Scott, and Keta Diablo

Ethan Thomas has spent years alone - forever trapped between worlds. Once a soldier in the Civil War, he's now a ghost bound to a chaise lounge that once belonged to him. He's spent centuries lingering in Savannah, Georgia, waiting to be saved...

Cassandra Cole is an interior designer hired to restore an old Victorian home. As she begins to furnish the house, strange happenings erupt around her. She suspects the house is haunted. Determined to find out, Cassie sets out to discover who the ghost is, why she feels a connection to him, and what she has to do to free him. The answers will surprise her in ways she never imagined.

ONE RUB MORE by Elise Hepner

Flynn has been cursed for over a century for a social slight he never committed. A voodoo priestess hexed him and forced him into a teapot where he could be summoned by the rub of a woman's palm. Once free, he grants these women three sexual favors - and cuts off his own emotions in the process. Unable to break free from an invisible cage of lust and sex to fall in love again he's resigned to being a sex object and nothing more.

Helena has been house sitting far, far away from her complicated past in England -  including her former childhood sweetheart, who wasn't satisfied when Helena didn't want to be barefoot and pregnant. She's resigned to leave behind the complications of men and sex. She hopes logic will win out over her unreliable emotions - but she's put to the test when she accidentally summons Flynn from his teapot prison.

A LOVE SOUL DEEP by Amber Scott

If only Sara had known no man would ever make her feel like Crew did, she would have let him love her. A regret that can never be undone. His death haunts her dreams, and her wishful thinking only reminds her of everything she has lost.

Years later, a visit to an antique store in sultry Savannah changes everything and makes her deepest wish come true. Her beloved returns to her. Her every fantasy gets the chance to be fulfilled. But she wants more than one night. She wants a lifetime and wonders what magic will let her keep A Love Soul Deep.

With visions of battle still fresh in his mind, Roane Bradfield returns home to find the woman he loves betrothed to another. He corners Kendrick Moreland at Dowager Huggins' Grand Ball and whisks her into the secluded library. One way or the other, he will know the reason the duplicitous beauty cut him from her life when she promised to wait forever.

Kendrick can't believe her eyes when Roane suddenly appears at the ball. Has he truly risen from the dead? Amid wagging tongues and hushed murmurs, the fantasy of her every dream whisks her from the ballroom. And the expression on his face is anything but loving. Revenge, danger and powerful love collide in the Cradle of Dreams.

  1. Good morning ladies and super congrats on the new anthology release! It sounds fantastic!

    How did you four get together for this anthology? I love the theme for this book, are you guys going to be doing more anthologies together?

    Hope the book is a huge success for you guys and I can't wait to read it!

  2. Hi!! We were all approached by Keta to do this anthology, and of course we were thrilled! It's been a privilege for me to work with these fab authors.

    We do have ideas swirling through our minds for another anthology. Hopefully, soon we'll get back to work and come up with another bunch of stories to fall in love with!!


  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. My question is for Stacey...I already bought and read Stolen Dreams and LOVED IT! It was my first time reading your work and I'm definitely hooked. question is how did you get the idea for that book, and when will we see the next book in the series? :)


    Oh, and my email is allysonmeyer at gmail dot com.

  5. Hi Allyson! The idea for Stolen Dreams hit me like a ton of bricks one day! It seriously came out of nowhere. I thought a romance with a ghost would be a fun story...and it turned out I loved writing it. I'm going to start book two in a few weeks and it should be out by the end of May!

    Thanks for stopping by!! :)

  6. It's so great to be here! *waves at Stacey* Bring on the questions, everyone.
    @Allyson, Stolen Dreams is awesome, isn't it? It will be part of the Indie Book Collective's May 18th Bestseller for a Day, too!

  7. So fun! I just checked out Bestseller for a Day and it's a great program! I've marked my calendar and definitely plan to participate!

    Oh, and I should let all of you authors know that I did pick up your anthology (last week, I think??) and can't wait to read all of your stories!

  8. Awesome Allyson! We appreciate your support! *hugs(

    *waves back at Amber* :)

  9. @Allyson, Super Yay! Can't wait to hear what you think and thank you so much for your support. May 18th is going to make history thanks to readers like you!!

  10. I love ghost romances. I have to say when I first read about a ghost stuck in a teapot I got a big smile on my face. that was a new one for me!

  11. Congrats on the anthology release!
    Loved all the blurbs for these stories, I enjoy these type of stories, once I start reading can't put them down.

  12. I have read Keta's story Where The Rain Is Made. The story has stuck to me and I was wondering if there will be any more stories about the characters. I just want to know what happens to Francesca and her brother now that they are also time travellers. Why does Ethan time travel if he can't change the past? And the list goes on and on. Sorry, didn't mean to be so long winded!

  13. @Anne, Be sure to let us know what you think of that teapot tale!
    @Jean, Thanks so much. Hope they make for a great curl up with a book night for you!

  14. This sounds like such a fun anthology! Can't wait to read it :-) Elise, how did you come up with the idea to put a ghost in a teapot, of all things?

  15. I really want to read this anthology. I've been hearing a lot of good things about it and it sounds like something I would thoroughly enjoy.

  16. Anne - Poor genie..hope the heroine can save him! :D

    Jen - Contact Keta, I'm sure she'd be glad to answer all those questions for you! I loved the story too!

    Thanks for stopping in Sarah and Danielle!

  17. Wow what a great anthology. I've read all four authors so I'm sure I will love these stories too. I adore Paranormal Romance stories. What a great lineup of prizes too. Congratulations on the new anthology ladies!

  18. @Sarah, Don't you just love her new twist on the old genie idea?
    @Stacie, Thanks for reading all of us! Can't wait to hear what you think of this one!
    @Daniell, Be sure to tell us what you think when you grab your copy, k?
    @Jen, Great questions and never too many, in my opinion!

  19. I love anthologies.All these stories sound great.

    This is for each author..How many anthologies have you been involved with?


  20. I love anthologies, too. It's a great way to meet new authors.

  21. Do you find that you're getting more offers to participate in anthologies?

  22. Elaing8 - This is my first anthology, and it's been so fun!! It's very neat collaborating with other authors!

    Tracey D - I agree!!

    Leni - I have two more anthologies I'm going to be a part of. One is with Eve Langlais, who I'm a HUGE fan of. And another will come in June...but it's a secret right now! :D

  23. @Elaing8, My first, too. But it has been a great experience.
    @Tracey D, I totally 'try on' new authors by reading anthos, too!
    @Leni, not yet, but I'm ready for more!

  24. Sounds like a good anthology. How much research had to be done for the historical stories? Did you have to set down rules for you all to follow when writing the ghosts?

  25. My question is for any of the four of you! Do any of you plan to write more (either short stories or stand-alone) using the characters from this anthology?

  26. She :) - Mine is not a historical, so I didn't have to do much research, except to learn more about Savannah. Never being there before, I had to take a look at some pictures and read up on the City.

    Cindy - Nope, these characters are only going to be found in this anthology. :)

  27. @She, I loved the historical piece by Keta. She knows her past! For mine, I researched the area and am lucky enough to know someone who lives in Savannah who gave me great, specific details to incorporate.
    @Cindy, I might be able to have some fun with a secondary character or two. Visiting the antique shop that links the stories would certainly be fun, too.
