Today Roxanne Rhoads is guestblogging for me!!!

Supernatural Bad Boys- The Ultimate Thrill

Guest Blog by Roxanne Rhoads

I think most women are programmed to be attracted to the bad boy, the broken boy, the dangerous boy- and who portrays the bad boy better than a supernatural boy?

Supernatural bad boys give a danger craving lady the thrill of a lifetime. They are the epitome of the bad boy stereotype with the added bonus real danger, supernatural strength and paranormal powers.

Plus they may have lived for a really long time so some girls may get their daddy issues covered along with that craving for the bad boy because let’s face it a guy that’s lived for decades, centuries possibly, should have infinite wisdom and the extreme added bonus of really knowing how to please to a woman sexually.

If he doesn’t after all that time then he’s an idiot. If he’s a vampire someone should stake him. Immediately. That way no other woman falls prey to the possibility of a paranormal paramour with promises of passion and pleasure only to be disappointed.

We get enough of that in real life.

That’s why we love our paranormal romances and urban fantasy books so much. The men are gorgeous, strong, dangerous and delicious.

And they want us- normal, plain, human woman that finally can light that spark inside them that’s been missing for so long.

We get to fix their brokenness, tame their bad boy ways, all while being swooped up into supernaturally strong, muscle bulging arms and carried off to beds where we are shown unimaginable pleasure than no mere mortal could ever offer.

Ultimate fantasy right?

Seems so for many of us right now. Nothing’s hotter than supernatural sex with the ultimate bad boys.

I know I can’t get enough. I love to read about the paranormal hotties as well as write about them.

My Halloween novella A Halloween to Remember (eXcessica) features Adena, a young woman hoping to someday meet the man of her dreams. When she encounters Dimitri at her friend Chrissy’s wild Halloween party she doesn’t believe she has a ghost of a chance with him until they get to know each other a little better and Adena realizes he may be the man she’s been hoping for. Too bad the next morning Adena wakes up alone- in a small cemetery behind the house. Halloween magic brought them together but will it be strong enough to keep them together?

It’s a fun filled paranormal erotic romance- heavy on the erotic. No vampires but there’s plenty of magick in the air.

If vampires are what you crave my novella Eternal Desire (Eternal Press) is set in New Orleans during Halloween. LizBeth, a paranormal researcher, is searching for the shadowy vampire that haunts her dreams. Instead of finding him she encounters a handsome stranger that may finally be the one man that can take her mind off the vampire. As Halloween grows closer LizBeth finds herself torn between a shadow and a stranger not knowing who to choose. The magic of Halloween may help her decide once the clock strikes midnight and spirits walk freely in the flesh.

My newest release Hex and the Single Witch (also set during Halloween) features a human and vampire vying for witch Anwyn’s heart. From the beginning my goal was that Galen, the vampire, supernatural hottie extraordinaire would have Anwyn and there would be no love triangle. Then Mike Malone decided otherwise and ended up shoving his way into the book as not only a main character but as a love interest for Anwyn. A romantic story line turned into a steamy love triangle. Now it’s human versus vampire to win the heart of a witch. Who do you think will win?

Anwyn Rose is descended from a long line of powerful witches yet she can barely cast spells young witchlings have mastered. She has one functioning witch gift, the power of knowing, which she puts to good use as a Detective on Flint’s Preternatural Investigation Team.

It’s a new era in Vehicle City, supernaturals are running the town.

The P.I.T has their hands full with paranormal crimes. Top priority is a serial killer, who appears to be a vampire, draining young women in the city.

Anwyn is on the case with her sexy partner Detective Mike Malone. Complicating things is her relationship Galen, a vampire who looks more guilty than innocent, although Anwyn trusts her instincts even if her power is on the fritz.

Mysterious spells, compromising situations, and a possible demon on the loose make it hard to focus on the case, but Anwyn has to make things right before the human police execute the wrong vampire.

Hex and the Single Witch contains magick, a little bit of mystery, a lot of supernatural mayhem, and a sexy love triangle that will leave you wanting more.

My Thoughts:

I gotta love a book that starts with Right Said Fred. Simply put Hex and the Single Witch was fun, witty, and hot.

This is definitely a book meant for adults. It was loaded with very hot, drool worthy, alpha type males, There were oodles of steamy, sexy, lusty scenes! ;-) There was a love triangle that left me alternating between which man I was rooting for. At the end of this book, I am team Mike but I reserve the right to switch teams in the next book.

There were so many times I was laughing out loud. I gotta love relatives that start the saying "Don't have a cow" and Anwyn's dreams were too funny especially the one about Rod Stewart. That was completely unexpected.

From beginning to end the pages of Hex and the Single Witch were full of supernatural creatures, fun sexy music, action, mystery, smokin hot scenes, and magic. This book has something for everyone age 18 and over. 

The book flowed smoothly from chapter to chapter and I only found a few spots where it lulled slightly. This usually happens when a series is starting because it is necessary to put extra detail or explain the back story and this book was no exception. For the most part I read the book without stopping. It had me enthralled. I needed to find out what was happening to Anwyn and see which man she would choose. I have to say I had a suspicion about who was behind Anwyn's problem and I was right!

I thought Sex I mean Hex and the Single Witch was fantabulous! I recommend it to all adults looking for a paranormal book that has it all and then some. This book should be a must read for you!

I received a copy of this book from Bewitching Book Tours in exchange for my honest opinion.
