C.R. Moss, Visiting my blog today.

 “An eccentric and eclectic writer, C.R. Moss pens stories for the mainstream and erotic romance markets, giving readers Worlds of Possibilities when it comes to love.” Basically I write stories from the light and sweet to the dark and deadly with varying degrees of sexual heat. The bio for my other persona: Casey Moss delves into the darker aspects of life in her writing, sometimes basing the stories on reality, sometimes on myth. No matter the path, her stories will take you on a journey from the light-hearted paranormal to dark things unspeakable. What waits around the corner? Come explore…

Now for the Q & A! :)

1) Are you aware of any themes that run through your stories? If so, what are they?

My themes and subjects seem to revolve around issues about trust and commitment, sometimes betrayal, sometimes about spirituality and/or religion. Sometimes, thought, a story is just about two people meeting and hooking up without anything too deep going on. In my current release, the hero, who was a bit of a cynic before he met his gal, is just learning to trust her when she disappears and he has to find her. Then when he does, she’s in a situation that doesn’t make him happy. Don’t want to give too much away or else it might spoil some stuff. ;)

2) Will you be attending any book or writing conferences this year? If yes, which ones? Where and when?

Yep! I’m hoping to get to SoCalRWA Conference ~ California Dreamin’ in March. Then, finances permitting, the RomanceNovelConvention2013 in Las Vegas in August. In September, I’m going to KillerCon in Las Vegas and in October I’ll be a featured author at Hot Mojave Knights in Las Vegas.
3) Do you have any book signings or author appearances coming soon? If yes, where and when?

My writing partner and I are hoping to set up local signings in our city and in cities close by in AZ and CA for this year. If I have books available for KillerCon, I’m hoping to sign there and maybe do a reading. If I can make it to the RNC Convention, I’ll most likely sign there, too. And I’ll definitely be doing appearances and a signing at
4) What is your best memory?

Hanging out at the dormitory bar at university in Germany after a long day, drinking German beer, smoking, listening to my favorite rock band Rush, hanging with friends and playing cards. Lots of good memories from my study abroad! Which are a tie with all the special times hubby and I have shared.

5) What is your favorite comfort food?

Anything that has potatoes in it…chips, baked, fried, tots…etc.

6) What decade has been your favorite? Why?

The 1990’s. Went to Germany. Got married. Lived in TX. Finished college.

7) What is your favorite fairy tale? Why?

Happy you asked that. It’s actually a tie…Sleeping Beauty & Beauty and the Beast. In fact the book I’m promoting today is based off of Beauty and the Beast. Not quite sure why I like them so much. I just have since I was very young.

8) What was your favorite vacation?

Tough to decide. Our first vacation to Las Vegas was interesting. Then there was the time we flew to Las Vegas for the weekend to see Rush in concert. Then after we moved to Las Vegas we took a cruise in the western Caribbean and visited Grand Cayman and Cozumel. We had a lot of fun on the cruise with my family, so that’s probably closer to first place than the others.

9) Are you a cat or dog person? Do you have any pets and if so, please tell us about them.

I like both. If our place was bigger, we’d probably get a dog again, but since we don’t have much of a yard we don’t think it’d be fair to the type of dog we’d want. So we have a cat. Black with a white patch on his stomach. His name is Marius. (After Anne Rice’s character.) He’s very vocal and very loving.

Please tell us about your most recent release and where we can purchase it. Please give us your urls and your publisher’s url.

Today I’m here to tout my latest C.R. Moss release, Lovers and the Fiend.

Lovers and the Fiend is a story in Evernight Publishing’s Naughty Fairy Tale line. The characters, Jack and Kristina, appeared in my short story – Chasing Miss Kringle – that’s in an Evernight Publishing anthology – Stockings and Suspenders. This is the first of a handful of stories I have planned for the NFT line that revolve around the world started in CMK and Lovers. You don’t have to read the anthology story to read Lovers, but it’d be nice if you did. ;)

Ex-cop turned private investigator, Jack Vorst, learns his elf girlfriend Kristina has been missing for a few days after being invited to an underground vampire club. He, too, is summoned to visit club Hexenringe and is taken captive. Jack finds Kristina bound and gagged in a human sized bird cage. They’re both thrust into a kinky world at the hands of Kol, the club owner. Kol, a vampiric beast, shifts into human form to be with Jack and Kristina and needs them to remember their pasts and to love him so he can return to what he used to be. Can Kol make the pair fall in love with him despite his current situation and the fact he’s keeping them captive or will they leave, making it too late for him to change all their fates?

Warning: ménage a trios, M/M, bondage, anal sex, sex toys, public exhibition

PG-13 Excerpt:

A peek into the beginning of the story…
Chapter One
I have your woman. A nice piece of ass she is, too. She tells me you’re not bad yourself. I would love for you to join us later. A car will be waiting for you outside your office at noon today where my assistant will fill you in on some details. If you know what’s good for you and your gal, you’ll take advantage of this invitation. See you soon. ~ Kol Ainmire
Jack Vorst’s temper went full tilt within a second. His blood pounded hard through his head and body. He’d told Kristina to be careful when she went out on her cases, but it seemed she still had gotten herself in trouble. Not good.
“Vic! Get in here!” Trying to check and rein in his anger before he popped a vessel, Jack grabbed the letter he’d found on his desk while going through a stack of mail and a couple of case files. The paper crinkled within his one clenched hand, and the envelope it’d come in bunched up in his other.
He kept his gaze downcast, ground his teeth. No sense in looking at the tan colored walls that were littered with stenciling in his office and be more irritated than he already was. The design and colors reminded him of the Native American beaded belts people sold at roadside stands.
Vic’s wife, Malory, who worked in the adjoining office suites, loved her southwestern motifs. All the rooms for both divisions of the business were decorated to represent Arizona and New Mexico. The decorating style with too many colors and crazy patterns made his head swim, gave him a headache. He hated headaches.
Staring at the crumpled papers in his hands, he sighed. Truth be told, Kristina’s whereabouts and her lack of checking in for several days only concerned him a little. She was able to take care of herself, and he trusted her. He loved her, wanted her to be safe, so of course he worried some. But being an elf gave her an advantage that mere humans didn’t have­—the ability to escape situations by simply disappearing and reappearing elsewhere.
Except this time.
