Interview with Cleo Taurus

Welcome, Cleo Taurus!


1.  For those who might not be
familiar with you, would you be a dear and tell the readers a little about
yourself? How did you get your start in the writing business?
(CT) Actually,
I got my real start as a role player in a couple of Facebook groups. I honed my
writing skills there, but I have been writing stories and poems since I was a
child. I love to write, and having been so blessed to be given a chance by a
wonderful group of people, I am now happier than I ever was.


2.  All writers fear
the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.
(CT) I walk away. I have to otherwise
all I do is sit there and stare at the computer, which only makes it worse. I
try to clear my mind, take a walk or something like that. Sometimes it helps;
sometimes I just have to wait till the story starts talking to me again.


3. Contrary to what some people envision about a romance
writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us.
With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend
your time?
(CT) I read a lot, every day as a matter of fact. I have three
wonderful grandkids I spend a lot of time with. I like to be outside when I
can. I love to take pictures and I watch a lot of History channel!


4. I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their
pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are
their thoughts?
(CT) Very few know the real me, for the simple fact of the kind
of books I write. I have already had to deal with one judgmental fool; I don’t
want to have to do it again. However, having said that, those that do know what
I write are one hundred percent supportive!


5. Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If
you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten.
(CT) Lol ok, let’s see if I can narrow it down. Well, Shayla
Black is my all time favorite author, and then Lora Leigh comes in a close
second. After that its Cherise Sinclair, Angel Payne, J.R. Ward, Laurell K.
Hamilton, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Maya Banks, and Lexi Blake.  Also, I do have to mention a couple of new
authors who will be doing big things in the future, Ava Snow, Harper Jewell and
Oliver Lixx.


6. If you could choose one book to go to the big screen,
yours or otherwise, which book would you choose and whom would you love see
casted in the parts?
(CT) If I were totally honest, I would like to see my series
Michael: the black room series made into a movie. There is an actor, Colin
Cunningham who I always imagined would be my Michael, and for Elizabeth it would
have to be Scarlett Johannsen, and for Michael’s true love, Kathleen, it would
be Amy Adams. 


7. Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now?
That is if it’s not top-secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I
swear it’ll go no further.
(CT) The wonderful Ava Snow and I are working on a two part story
called Governmental affairs, about two men who find love, and I’m currently
working on a new series called the Spanking Bench Confessionals which I
guarantee will be hot! But the one I am most looking forward to is one story
called “The Arrangement. It is so completely different from anything I’ve ever
written or read, I can’t wait to share it with everyone!


8. Where can we find your stories and is there a particular
reading order?
(CT) With the Black Room series, there is a reading order,
Michael one, Michael two and Michael 3. The rest of my stories are in no
particular order, and you can find them on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and All


9. Would you please share how your present and future fans
can contact you?
(CT) Of course!

10. Before we conclude this enlightening interview, do you
have anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.
(CT) I want to thank all the fans who have spent their hard
earned dollars on my stories. I write what I feel; some of my stories are from
my real life somehow. I have some wonderful friends who have helped me every
step of the way, given me guidance and held my hand when I was down. I write
what I would like to read, if I were the customer. I would love to hear from
fans, to let me know what they think! Thank you for allowing me a voice, I
can’t tell you how much that means to me.
Check out this hot number! 
Assistant extraordinaire, Gracie, is the perfect aide to two of the best lawyers in the state. 
Matthew and Malcom have everything money can buy, except that one special woman to share it with. 
When a surprising opportunity presents itself, will Gracie be brave enough to step fully into the world of kink and become the kind of woman the brothers could grow to love or will her own inadequacies squash any chance of happiness for all three involved?

Review of “Darkness Unmasked” – Keri Arthur

Half-werewolf, half-Aedh, Risa Jones is beginning to believe that the only way to find the keys she’s been searching for and save her friends is by dying. And when Wolfgang Schmidt, the lover of her boss at the vampire council, is found dead, her worst fears are confirmed. With the first portal of hell permanently open, the energies of the dark path are leaching into the world.

Searching for Schmidt’s killer and the keys at the same time, Risa and reaper Azriel track a shape-shifting spider spirit capable of changing her form into a seductive woman. But when they finally find the second key, the Aedh Lucian snatches it and disappears.

Risa is intent on finding Lucian and fighting him to the death—for in her mind, she knows that neither can remain while the other lives…




Only Keri could get me to love a story that involves a Jorōgumo, a spider/spirit that can change its appearance into that of a seductive woman. For a person who loathes the creepy crawler, I was cringing when her babies were literally raining down on Risa. Eeeek! 

For those who wonder how powerful Hunter is, you shall witness her wrath unleashed and believe me, she’s one scary chick! 

Update on the search for Dia’s murder: Risa will discover her mother’s killer and rest assured, vengeance will be delivered. 

As for the relationship of Azriel and Risa…… I look forward to see where book six takes us because the final chapters left me on edge. And that my fans is what makes for a great book and author!

Author Showcase – P.T. Macias

Note from the author!!
Thank you for the invite. It’s a pleasure to be visiting you and sharing my De La Cruz Saga. The De La Cruz Saga is an amazing emotional roller coaster ride of romance, suspense, and intense passion. Its steamy material is a little erotic. The stories are well written, full of Mexican traditions, and culture. Enjoy their explosively passionate nature. 

De La Cruz Saga contains Spanish. Saga has a subtle influence of Spanish and the Spanish becomes more laced (as the story progresses). I write in the present tense because I believe it puts the reader “IN” the action, rather than as part of an “after thought”. I believe it brings the characters to life! My writing is not traditional literature. It does not have the fluff (excessive description, stage, settings, prose). My intent is to have the reader visualize and feel the characters story. This is my voice, my style. Dare to read the awesome De La Cruz Saga that’s full of passion and suspense. 

The saga is a twelve book series. I have eight out and four more should be out by the end of December 2013.
~The hot releases ~

Alejandro Andres De La Cruz is the doctor in the familia (family). He’s always there to help everyone in need. Alex loves to ride Luna a palomino on the familia’s hacienda. He’s hot, sexy and very warm caring hombre (man).

Carolina Crystal Reyes is a beautiful, sweet, young Medical Physician. She lives in the shadows and steals his heart.

Alex lives a double life. Can anyone help him in his time of need before losing his amor?


~ Delightful excerpt ~
Later in the
day, they’re in the Eve’s Pleasures store. Alex is going crazy with all of the
sexy small boy shorts, bikini’s, thongs with the matching bras. “Baby, look at
this Baby doll,” says Alex. He pulls one out from the rack, a sexy black baby
doll. “I want this.”
“Si, Alex, I
like it,” says Carolina. I’m pleased that
he enjoys picking out my clothes.
“Baby, I want
you to try it on,” says Alex. His eyes sparkle wickedly. He walks to the
fitting rooms. He strides to the last one and goes inside with her. He sits in
the chair that’s in the dressing room. “I want to help you try it on.”
Yeah, I know what he wants, thinks
Carolina, smiling. “Si, Alex, I want to try it on,” she says. She pulls off her
clothes and puts on the Baby doll. She turns to look at Alex.
“Baby, you look
hot and sexy; my mouth waters,” says Alex, pulling her into his arms. Urgently,
he runs his hands over her breasts, savoring the feel of the silky material. The baby doll is a sexy black silk material
that clings to my baby’s awesome breasts
. Oh damn, I’m aching for her. “Baby, I want you,” he whispers. He

takes a nibble and sucks her nipple over the material moaning.
“Alex,” she
says, pulling him up for a beso. Carolina unzips his pants and pulls him out.
“So good,” she whispers. She kisses and sucks his neck, marking him. She
impales his hot aching shaft deeply, riding him hard.
Alex kisses her
deeply, devouring her mouth, muffling their sounds of pleasure. They hold on
tight and sear their almas as they reach heaven.
Claudia De La Cruz is a sexy, intelligent,
dedicated, and beautiful FBI agent! She worked hard to achieve her dream. She’s
too busy to fall in love. She never had an amor! She’s waiting for her alma
gemela (soul mate)!
Roberto De León sprints into her life! Time
and danger brings them together and tears them apart!
~ Delightful excerpt ~
what’s going on? What’s all that commotion here in my casa
, thinks Claudia.
She runs out of her room and down the
hall. She meets her Padres (parents).
“What’s going on?” asks Claudia.
“We don’t know,” replies Papa Jorge.
Claudia urgently strides to the front
door. She sees Veronica and Christopher walking after Roberto.
dios mio that’s my Roberto!

“Roberto, wait!” yells Claudia. She runs out the door after him. “Baby!”
“I don’t want to hear you lie!” yells
Roberto. He attempts to hurry to the suv.
“Baby, what’s wrong?” asks Claudia,
passing Veronica and Christopher.
“Hermana (sister), he saw Christopher and
me kissing. I think that he thought I was you,” says Veronica, walking behind
“Hey, amigo, wait up!” says Christopher,
sprinting after Roberto. “You have it all wrong.”
Roberto hears Claudia and the other
voices. Hmm, that’s three voices and not
two. One is Claudia,
he thinks. He turns around, furious and curious.
“Baby,” yells Claudia, running to
Roberto. “Please, listen to me.”
Roberto stands stupefied. Oh, dios mio! What a fucking fool I am. I
forgot about her twin. I saw her in his arms and thought it was my Baby. The
rage and frustration that I felt ten years ago, came rushing back. It was worse
this time, because Claudia is my mujer
, ponders Roberto. He’s in a daze.
Roberto stares at Veronica, feeling
Claudia run into his arms. Damn, she’s
identical to my Claudia, but she’s different
. He gazes down into Claudia’s

beautiful eyes.
“Baby, te amo!” says Claudia. She gazes
into his confused, pained beautiful brown eyes. “That’s my hermana, Veronica.”
Roberto closes his eyes tight. Wow, damn it! I made a huge mistake. I
almost walked away from my amor, my alma gemela, and my world.
He opens his eyes and gazes into
Claudia’s beautiful face. He pulls her close, burying his face into her neck. Yes, this is my Claudia. I feel her, she’s
mia, only mia
, he thinks.
“Amor, your mia, only mia!” he growls
into her ear. He ignores the pain at his side. He holds her tight.
Claudia moves her head and gives him a
hungry beso. She wraps her arms around his neck.
damn yes. This is my Baby, my Amor

thinks Roberto. He hungrily returns her beso. He holds her tight. I’ve been dreaming of this moment for a long

Review of “Ours to Love” – Shayla Black

Between two brothers…Xander Santiago spent years living it up as a billionaire playboy. Never given a chance to lead his family business in the boardroom, he became a Master in the bedroom instead. His older brother inherited the company and worked tirelessly to make it an empire. But while the cutthroat corporate espionage took its toll on Javier, nothing was as devastating as the seemingly senseless murder of his wife. It propelled him into a year of punishing rage and guilt…until Xander came to his rescue.

Comes an irresistible woman …Eager to rejuvenate Javier’s life, Xander shanghais him to Louisiana where they meet the beautiful London McLane. After surviving a decade of tragedy and struggle, London is determined to make a fresh start—and these sexy billionaire brothers are more than willing to help. In every way. And London is stunned to find herself open to every heated suggestion…and desperately hoping that her love will heal them.

And inescapable danger …But a killer with a hidden motive is watching, on a single-minded mission to destroy everything the Santiago brothers hold dear, especially London. And as fear and desire collide, every passionate beat of her heart could be her last.

Review ~ 
When I purchased this story, I knew this was going to be about two brothers falling in love with the same woman and having sex with her. However, since I am a fan of Shayla’s and I wanted to read the continuation of the series, I cracked opened the book anyways. 

With that said, I can’t understand how a brother can get aroused watching his sibling have sex with someone. For me to enjoy the scenes, I actually pretended they were only friends and not brothers. 

What I did like about this story was the tenderness, the patience, and understanding they shown London when she unveiled her back to them. Their reaction was absolutely perfect! 

One final note: If you were waiting for the conclusion of “Who killed Javier’s wife and why”, the wait is finally over. 🙂
