Who is Erin Moore?
Erin has been writing for years, but Kissed by Moonlight is her first finished (and published!) novel. She lives with her two little ones and husband in Georgia. She loves to travel, read, and connect with her readers!
A little more about Erin…
What makes your novel unique?
- “Kissed” is unique because it features two clans of shifters with very different shifting abilities and characteristics. The Wolven in the novel are more feral, less able to control when they shift, and look like traditional werewolves. The Lupen, Morgane’s clan, are wolf-like and more prescient. I didn’t even realize this was unique until I heard it from others – I just wanted these two clans to be very different, in order for my lovers to have to overcome their issues with their own families in order to be together. Sort of Romeo and Juliet for shifters, except nobody kills themselves.
Why should you buy it?
- It’s an intense love story with hot sex. Oh, and werewolves. What else could you ask for?
How do balance writing with all of life’s responsibilities? Which ones do you have to juggle?
- I first want to say that I am very, very thankful for the time that I do have to write. I read about so many authors, including my fellow Etopia authors, who work a full job, take care of their kids, and then write on top of it. I have two little ones at home, and I consider taking care of them my full-time job. So when I have time to write (nap-times, babysitter times, occasional evenings), I still feel like it’s a fun break from my kids. When I stop feeling like writing is fun, that’s when I’ll know it’s time to do something else. But I have so many ideas in my head that I know I’ll be writing for a very long time.
What do you see as your next project and when can we expect it?
- Have a story in the works about an Apache shaman and the sexy bank analyst that comes to help his tribe. They’re from two very different worlds, and their tension is about that conflict. No idea when to expect it – hopefully soon!
About Kissed by Moonlight
Morgane has problems with men. Being a werewolf, and wary of humans, it’s inevitable. But when she meets the intense and enigmatic Aelric, she falls hard. She’s never experienced feelings like this before: desperate for his touch, crazy for the feeling of his skin on hers, and ready to surrender to him heart and soul.
Aelric has never had a problem with women; he’s a master of seduction. So when his alpha orders him to seduce Morgane for information about her clan, he accepts. He’s entranced by her supple curves and soft lips, but for once, he wants more than just her body. He wants her for his mate. But he can’t reveal his true identity, or his intentions. For he’s part of a rival clan of werewolves intent on the domination of Morgane’s pack. And dark forces are gathering that might destroy their fiery relationship…
A short excerpt:
“Aelric.” She held him back slightly. “I need to tell you…”
He took her hand in his, held it up to mouth. “No need to tell me anything right now.” He knew what she wanted to say, could see it in her eyes. But he didn’t want to spoil this time with her. The day would come soon enough when he would have to expose his own secret.
He put his lips to her neck, inhaling her perfume, the notes of bergamot and woman intoxicating him, drugging him. He was hard. He wanted to bury himself in her soft ivory skin, to hear her berry lips moan at his touch. He ground her against him, bit at her neck, as if her skin was sumptuous chocolate.
She took his face between her hands, pulled his lips to her own. She was hungry, insistent, and he responded, matching her ferocity with his. He acted the animal, biting, licking, devouring her groans as she pressed against him.
He lifted her so that her legs encircled him and pushed her back against the bedroom wall. His legs tensed beneath her, holding her steady.
“Yes,” he answered, his breath short, his mouth on hers, his hands below her, cupping the soft flesh of her ass. She grasped at his shoulders, pulling at him. He tugged off his jeans and boxers; he needed to be inside her. Now.
