Welcome to Barbara Edwards

Today I have Barbara Edwards on my blog.

Welcome Barbara, Tell us a little about yourself:

I’ve been ebook published for ten years so I’m one of the pioneers in the business with Another Love a historical romance at WingsEpress. The changes have been mind-boggling and I’ve had to learn about using my computer. I spend time on many loops, do blogging, and find time to work on my next book.

What do you like the most and the least about writing?

What I like the most is telling my stories. I love having a reader say she likes this character or that scene. And getting a good review is the cherry on top of my ice cream sundae. What I like the least is being interrupted while I’m writing. There are hours, even days, when business or life in general keeps me away from my stories.

Give us a peek into your latest published work?

Ancient Blood by Barbara Edwards is a paranormal romance from The Wild Rose Press

Lily Alban escapes a murderous stalker, but his vicious attack leaves her with the ability to see auras. She finds safety in the tiny hamlet of Rhodes End where a stranger stands out like a red light. Try as she might to deny her growing desire for Cole, she seeks his help but soon discovers the man she loves is not a man at all.

Werewolf Cole Benedict resists his attraction to Lily. A botanist researching the healing herbs to find a cure for Lycanthropy, he’s determined to protect Lily from her stalker as well as himself even in human form, but instinct takes over when he changes to his inner beast.

Together they must use their extraordinary gifts to catch Lily’s stalker before he attacks again, but revealing their secrets to one another could destroy their growing love or save them both.

What’s next on the writing horizon for you?

I’m in the middle of Book Three in the Rhodes End series tentatively titled Ancient Curse. I also have a contemporary romance about Civil War reenacting under consideration.

Is there anything you want to tell readers?

Dear readers? Oh my, I feel like Ann Landers giving advice. I want you all to enjoy my books. I hope you have an ebook reader so you can download the short stories and carry the long books with you everywhere.

Here’s an excerpt from Ancient Blood:

“Lily?” His strong hands gently cupped her shoulders.

“Don’t, please don’t.”

She pulled away, fully intending to flee. Her resistance shattered, and she turned into his embrace. It was too late to escape. Pressing against his strength, she wound her arms around his neck and pulled him closer. His erection prodded her stomach, and she moaned. A heavy groan filled his throat as he lifted her from her feet. He kicked the bag aside as he sat her on the counter.

“I can’t wait,” he growled. His flaring aura spiraled with colors she couldn’t name. She caught her breath. One hand burrowed through her hair, keeping her still as he stepped between her thighs. “You’re all I could think about all day.”

Clasping her bottom, he slid her to the edge of the counter. With his lips claiming her mouth, he unbuttoned her slacks, than lifted her slightly to push them down and off.

The cold surface only made her more aware of his scorching heat. His rough denim pants scraped her inner thighs in contrast with the silky hair under her palms. Her pulse leaped, and she gasped. His male scent mixed with hints of the wild forest filled her nostrils. When his fingertip explored the heated moisture gathering at her juncture, she tightened her thighs around his hips.
