What intrigues me about paranormal characters is actually their normalcy,
than the â€˜paraâ€™ bit. It seems universal that such immortal beings love,
stressed and pushed to their limits, just like us, even if their loves and
limits might be more extreme than what humans are used to (which is, of
of the allure). Who doesnâ€™t savour the idea of everlasting love? For
shifters, the concept of forever just happens to be a lot longer.
NIGHTS, my new erotic romance story, a human woman named Delia is
pursued by two
immortals. Having been loved and left by a vampire in the past, Delia is
understandably cautious about getting involved with Caleb and Mark. Sheâ€™s
with some screwing but she doesnâ€™t want to get screwed again so itâ€™s going
all of their combined powers for the vampire and the werewolf to convince
they belong together.
The immortals may live longer but, in my writing, they face the same issues
do. Unique, I think, to my take on paranormal erotic romance are vampires

Maybe my mind goes to strange places but I like thinking about how
romance characters deal with very human issues, like hiring a lawyer and
divorced. From there, it was an easy leap to envisioning a law firm that
exclusively caters to these types of creatures. That got me thinking again.
would the vampires know that this was the law firm for them? They could
advertise on the radio the way personal injury firms tirelessly do nowadays.
this firm must have been around a long time and its existence passed on by
mouth, down through the generations. So what if the human lawyers who staff
law firm also have that tradition handed down? What would that do to a

How stressful, yet exhilarating, that must be for her. I could see the

her job, with the weight of tradition bearing down on her and hopelessly
to the very clients she must spend the rest of her life around.
Doesnâ€™t it make sense for Delia to be conflicted? And what better stressor
on her than two very sexy immortal beings, one of whom is already convinced
just the woman for him.
The result is a paranormal erotic mÃ©nage story that I would like to think
works on a
couple of levels. Sexy and strange, yes, but oh-so-human in the end.
Nan Comargue is a thirtysomething romance and erotic romance writer
been reading romance novels all her life. She prefers sexy confident heroes
over slightly introverted heroines (read: nerdish types) but she writes
everything from angel-warriors to cowboy mÃ©nage.
Nan is Canadian, eh? So naturally she's written a contemporary romance with
professional hockey player as the hero (and a librarian as the heroine).

Lawyer Delia Darkerâ€™s world becomes very dark when two new clients
turn out to
be immortal vampiresâ€”and her long- time fantasy.
Delia Darker works at her familyâ€™s law firm, serving vampires and other
but she has long ago gotten over her own lust for vampire males after being
abandoned by one. When her colleague forces her to take over a meeting with
his clients, sheâ€™s suddenly thrown into the night-time world of music,
incredible sex. How can she resist spending the night with Mark Lyons and
Caleb has been searching for his and Markâ€™s one true mate, the ideal match
prophesized for immortals. However, Mark is skeptical. Immortality just
to go with a committed long-term relationship. It doesnâ€™t matter how
Delia is, he just doesnâ€™t think itâ€™s going to workâ€”but heâ€™s willing to give
it a try
for his best friendâ€™s sake.
When that first wild night turns into a series of sexy encounters, Delia
worrying that she might be falling for Mark and Calebâ€”and that certainly
plan. She isnâ€™t sure she wants to become an immortal. Sleeping with both a
and a werewolf might be a crazy experiment thatâ€™s all right for a little
the two males couldnâ€™t want more than that, could they?
