Survivor Paranormal Romance

Why do we still love Survivor, the TV show? Is it the skimpy outfits? Watching the infighting and the backstabbing to win several million dollars? The silly challenge games the contestants are put through? Maybe it’s watching our favorite contestant right up until the moment the torch is snuffed out? Or, it could be the show proves stereotypes and frontrunners don’t always win?

Whatever draws us to this granddaddy of TV shows, it has survived thirty-two seasons, first airing in 2000…yeah, not kidding. Viewers still love to see a group of strangers plunked into the middle of nowhere, forced together without shelter or food and to compete in ridiculously difficult physical challenges.

What if you removed the fake challenges and put the contestants into situations with authentic, life-threatening dangers (“Extreme Survivor”) such as Snake Island (Ilha da Queimada Grande) off the coast of South America where the most venomous snakes in the world live? Then toss in it’s a couples show where our underprepared and undertrained favorite contestants are only pretending to be a couple. Toss in the fact these two both have some supernatural talents. Aaha!  You’ve got the premise for the next in my Keepers of the Veil Series, PLAYING THE WITCH’S GAME.  

Like the Survivor TV show, viewers/readers might think the most in shape, the most prepared, and the most trained would “survive” out the rest to win the cash prize, but you just might be surprised.

Even a good witch knows how to play dirty....

Pleiades witch Jennifer Marcos is certain that the host of Extreme Survivor is her soulmate. All she has to do is find a fake boyfriend, get on the show, and voila! She'll have her destiny. Unfortunately, she has to rely on ex-Russian spy Nikolai Jovec's six-foot-something of gorgeous, infuriating hotness. To make matters worse, the electric attraction between Jen and Nikolai is hotter than ever. But the only way Nikolai can protect Jen is by hiding the identity of her true Destined...him.

New Release with Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway: Take Me Home Tonight

Take Me Home Tonight - RWB Banner

Erika Kelly’s rocker romance, TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT, is here! Read on for an exclusive excerpt and don't forget to enter her giveaway. Known for passionate heroes and strong women, book 3 in Erika’s Rock Star Romance Series, TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT, is no different. 

Take Me Home Tonight - CoverCalix Bourbon might seem like a free spirit, but that’s all a front. In reality he’s just trying to keep his fractured family together while working as a session musician. When Blue Fire hires him to replace their keyboardist, Calix is determined to make the most of the opportunity—but he can’t help being distracted by the band’s sexy personal chef.

Mimi’s temporary gig is great, but she has her heart set on auditioning for a televised cooking show. There’s just one problem: she only has a week to acquire the skills necessary to survive the competition. Luckily, the band’s new keyboard player can teach her exactly what she needs, in the kitchen and in the bedroom…

Just as her finger hovered over the cab company’s number, a motorcycle roared down the street. With his long, dark hair fluttering out the half-shell helmet, the unmistakable figure of Calix Bourbon came cruising down the asphalt in a black and chrome Harley.
She stepped into the intersection, forcing the bike to stop.
“Amelia.” The concern in her dad’s tone almost made her turn back to him.
Calix’s big boot hit the ground. He watched her with those intense, dark eyes.
“Can you give me a ride?”
His heated gaze took a slow predatory slide from her eyes to her mouth to her breasts, all the way down to her hips. 
“Melie.” The two syllables fired like pellets out of her dad’s mouth. “What the hell are you doing?” 
But she ignored him and approached the bike. She’d never ridden on a motorcycle. How could she straddle it in her tight skirt? 
Without a word, Calix pulled a combat foldout knife from the pocket of his jeans and flipped it open. The loud flick excited the hell out of her. Leaning in, he looked up, a question in his eyes. Heart pounding, she nodded.
With the tip of the blade he pulled the skirt away from her legs.
“Hey.” Her dad charged into the street. “Do not touch her.”
But Calix didn’t even look at him. He kept his inquiring gaze on Mimi.
She gave him a nod. In one swift flick of his wrist, Calix slit her skirt nearly up to her lace boy shorts.
“Are you out of your mind?” her dad shouted.
Instead of answering—and, really, maybe she was a little out of her mind—she hitched up the material and threw a leg over the seat. With her hot pink panties exposed for all the world to see, she hitched forward, closing the distance between her and Calix’s big body.
“Amelia, I don’t know what the hell you’re doing, but acting like a rebellious teenager is not going to encourage me to hire you.”
“So far nothing I’ve done has encouraged you.”
Calix pulled off his helmet and handed it to her. Once she had it on, she wrapped her arms around his incredibly hard, warm waist.
“I told you I’ll come up with an idea for you, but if you get on that bike, I won’t help you with anything.”
“Then I guess it’s up to me to take it from here.”
Calix’s big hand settled on her thigh, giving it a squeeze.
She understood the question. “Go.”
With a roar, the engine blasted between her thighs.
She never looked back.
