So today’s guest is Sasha White, author of Primal Male (this month’s Book-of-the-Month…see sidebar for details).
I invited Sasha here to tell you all a little more about the book and was thrilled when she told me that I would be debuting her video for the book…
So here it is folks…
And now here’s Sasha…
I’ve never been a writer who plans out a series, yet somehow, I’ve ended up with one. Sort of. I have no series title, but there are 5 stories in this paranormal journey I’ve embarked on, all connected by the same characters. Three of the stories were in the anthology SEXY DEVIL, One was in the recently released single title PRIMAL MALE, and the final one is in the novella NO ANGEL that will be in the July release MOST WANTED.
The whole thing started with the idea of a blind date mix up that became Gina and Caleb’s story in THE DEVIL INSIDE, the first novella in SEXY DEVIL. A free spirited psychic and an uptight construction worker meet, and sparks fly. That seems to be a theme for me. People meet, and sparks fly. I think because as much as I’m a cynic about happily ever after, and I don’t really believe in Love at first sight. I do believe in attraction and lust at first sight. And it’s magical when that attraction grows into more.
That theme, mixed in with some magic and crazy circumstances, seem to be the basis of this series, and I’m just clueing into it! To me, this is the magic of being an author. I know others who find that magic when they’re plotting, and planning, that’s the magical stage for them. For me, it comes from building a character, and throwing them into a situation that is out of their element, and then going on the journey with them. I get to learn about them, and see them, as readers do…or I should say as I hope readers do.
Drake Wheeler, the hero in PRIMAL MALE, was a complete enigma to me when I started the story, and all I knew about Melissa was that she was a shapeshifter. As with most people, there was so much more to them both than just that – and I hope you’ll enjoy reading PRIMAL MALE and discovering more about Drake and Melissa, as they learn more about themselves.
Read something WHITE hot!
After reading this I was curious so I asked Sasha if one needed to read Sexy Devil before Primal Male in order to fully enjoy the story and here is what she said…
Many readers have picked up PRIMAL MALE and read it without reading any of my books, let alone SEXY DEVIL. I want to assure you that while the characters are in each book and each story, they can also all stand alone. Hopefully, you’ll get hooked though, and want to pick the others up for pure enjoyment!
Greta, from I DON’T WANT TO WAIT says “In just one afternoon with Primal Male, Sasha White has become an auto-buy & must read author for me. I will definitely be working through her backlist, starting with Sexy Devil. Primal Male is actually the sequel to Sexy Devil.”
Jennifer at WILD ON BOOKS says: “PRIMAL MALE is the sequel to Sasha White’s erotic romance SEXY DEVIL, both of which have titles sure to grab the attention of romance readers everywhere. Although it is the second book in a series, PRIMAL MALE can easily be read as a standalone novel. I won’t try and tell you that you won’t want to read SEXY DEVIL after finishing this new book, though, since that would just be a lie. At least, it is for me. *grin*”
So there you go readers…a BIG thanks to Sasha for being my guest and for answering my question.
I am a fan of Sasha’s work, but somehow missed Sexy Devil…a mistake I’ll be rectifying soon…but it is nice to know that this month’s Book-of-the-Month, Primal Male, does indeed standalone.
So, have any of you read Sasha’s books?
If not, take a look at Sasha’s website and tell me a book that catches your attention.
Sasha has kindly donated a copy of either Lush or Sexy Devil to ONE lucky person who leaves a comment today (18 and older please).
