Author Spotlight: April Angel

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Today I’m spot lighting fellow Etopian April Angel.  And I have to say – I LOVE this cover. It is very sexy.

April’s newest release is Party Crasher. Catch the blurb and excerpt below.  That is if you can get past the cover 🙂



She crashed his party and became his prize…

According to one annoying Drex Callum, Chris is a “nosy reporter.” And maybe she is. She’s heard of the super secretive event known as the Seduction Party, and she won’t be content until she finds a way in. The last thing she expects to find is that Drex is the host. She’ll never get an invitation from her nemesis—unless she finds a way to get one herself. And breaking into his house is nothing if it means getting the scoop. But what she gets instead is an eye-full of the man himself, half-naked and more than she’d ever dreamed he could be in all her teenage fantasies.

Drex has been fantasizing about Chris forever, and now that she’s a grown woman, he still has a hard time treating her like one. So when she shows up at the Seduction Party—on the auction chair!—he’s got no other choice but to teach that nosey woman a lesson. He never dreamed sex could be like this, with Chris in his room, tied to a bed, asking him for stuff that blows his mind…

But when things turn ugly, it becomes clear that someone wants the nosey reporter dead. And Drex will have his hands full trying to keep his prize safe…

It’s Sunday again – and you know what that means –

time for snippets.

wewriwa_buttonSneekPeekSunday small

Boy time flies. Here we are again. Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work.  It could be a work in progress or a completed piece.  It could be published or not.

I’ve been giving you a glimpse into my current release Worth the Risk, a story about two people who grew up together, fell in love and then separated. Last week, I introduced you to Tanner as he was deciding what flavour of ice cream Molly tasted like. Here’s what happens next…

It seemed an eternity passed. Then he stroked two fingers along the slippery smooth skin before teasing her with a shallow dip and finally plunging deep inside. He pumped in and out. Those thick digits filled her, but still, she wanted more. She needed more. She worked her hips, keeping time with each thrust. Almost there.

Please jump back to the main sites for  Weekend Writing Warriors and Sneak Peek Sunday and visit  Snippet Sunday on facebook to see the many other authors bringing you a glance into their worlds for this week.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

My treat for you today is fellow Etopian, Antonia van Zandt. In honor of her latest release Vienna Valentine she’s sharing with us a little history on Vienna.

Vienna – Capital of Romance

Emperor Franz JosefFor some, it has to be Paris. For others, the eternal city of Rome. But, for me, one city towers head and shoulders above all others when it comes to the Capital of Romance – Vienna.

Vienna used to be the capital of a great Dual Monarchy – the Austro-Hungarian empire – and, in the second half of the nineteenth century, its ruler, Franz Josef, decided he would transform the cramped streets of the city into the most magnificent capital in Europe. To do this, he undertook a massive building project which included gutting the inner city and constructing the elegant Ring, framed by majestic buildings built in classical Grecian style.Vienna at night

World War I saw the destruction of the empire and the break-up of its territory. A much smaller republic of Austria emerged, but still with its opulent capital. Despite heavy bombing in Word War II, a massive restoration programme saw the rebuilding of the Ring and now, today, the city of Strauss and Klimt weaves its magic for anyone with romance in their heart.

The Viennese enjoy the finer things of life, anBlaue Bar, Hotel Sacherd music, art and diverse cultural activities abound. Enjoy a romantic dinner for two in the elegant Grand Café, within the Grand Hotel on Kärntnerring, followed by Swan Lake at the Opera House just up the road. Then, late night drinks in the Hotel Sacher – topped off with a slice of their famous chocolate cake. Wander through the streets and stroll along the banks of the Donaukanal. On a warm summer evening, just a gentle breeze will ruffle your hair. Magical.

By day, hop onto the tram and circumnavigate the Ring, stopping off whenever you see a beautiful building that takes your fancy. You can spend all day doing this! There is so much to see and fascinate. Or maybe you’d prefer to see Franz Josef’s masterpiece from a horse drawn carriage. You can pick up a Fiaker near the cathedral.

VolksgartenHold hands, walk along leafy roads and through peaceful parks (try the Volksgarten, near the Hofburg, which houses a lovely statue of Empress Elisabeth – Franz Josef’s beloved and tragic wife). In Vienna, it’s surprisingly easy to escape the hustle and bustle of the streets. Don’t miss it!

Now I’ve got you in the mood, let’s heat things up a bit. Here’s a taste of Vienna Valentine:
