Welcome Bebe Balocca

To get us started can you tell us a little about what you are working on or have coming out?

It’s an exciting early spring for me. I had two releases in February: “Bubbles and Troubles,” a paranormal MF erotic book set in Kentucky with loads of humor and surprises, and “Sand, Sin and Tequila,” a contemporary FFM erotica novella about a couple who seek (and find) another woman to share their bed while on vacation in Mexico. My Clandestine Classic release, “A Princess of Mars,” came out on March 4. It’s an erotic retelling of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s classic sci-fi tale – and yes, the lovemaking IS quite different on Mars. March 18 will see the release of “Learning to Soar,” a contemporary MF erotic romance that’s set in a nightclub. Turns out that a packed nightclub is the perfect setting for sex therapy sessions—who knew? I also have my first ever free read published this month. “At the Rainbow’s End” is set on St. Patrick’s day and features a rainbow, a leprechaun, and one very sexy pot of gold.

How would you describe yourself using only five words?

Optimistic, well-intentioned, distractible, trusting, family-centric

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

Afternoon snoozes with my little dachshund, Scarlett, in the “nap bed” in my office. A Beefeater gin martini (or two…) on the weekends. Sites that make fun of celebrities’ fashion choices on the internet.

How do you get yourself in the mood to write?

If I’m not already there, I just make myself start putting words down. That usually works and my creativity starts flowing. If not, I do something else—laundry, cleaning, cooking—and then self-preservation kicks in. Writing is MUCH more fun than chores.

If someone hasn't read any of your work, what book would you recommend that they start with and why?

“Bubbles and Troubles” is a good place to begin. It’s the first of a series (I’m working on book two right now) and is a great mix of hot erotic scenes, wild paranormal elements, and goofy humor. “A Ghost on Two Wheels” is very dear to my heart. It’s hot, for sure, and also intensely emotional. Plus it features tattoos and motorcycles…

What is coming up from you in 2013? Anything you want to tease us with?

Tigers… I see tigers… “Curse of the Tiger” comes out on June 24. It’s my first shifter book, and it was a thrill to write. It’s set in Colorado at a fictional free-range tiger sanctuary. “Curse” has heart-pounding thrills, an evil witch, and, of course, scorching hot erotic scenes. I love the tagline: “She knew that being close to tigers was her destiny, but she never thought she’d be riding on top of one.”

About Bebe Balocca:

I live in a teeny-tiny town in the southeastern United States, surrounded by rolling hills and lots of cows. My house is brimming with my rowdy sons, hot husband, and more pets than I can shake a stick at. When I close my eyes, though, I’m in a white stucco villa on the Mediterranean, sipping a martini and watching the turquoise waves crash at my feet. Next to my hot husband, naturally.

I love to read and write erotic romance, fantasy, and sci-fi because of the escape factor: I want to leave the ordinary and travel somewhere exotic, unusual, and sexually-charged in a book. My characters are thrust into unpredictable situations, and they respond with humor, open-mindedness, and loads of scorching passion.

Book One

Buy links:

Prescott Woods is in trouble! A belly dancing lawyer, a stray cat of highly questionable origin, and a particularly malodorous gnome come to the rescue.
Carmen loves living in Charade, Kentucky. The quirky Appalachian village is everything that Chicago wasn't. Populated by modern day New Agers, Charade is like Mayberry with tie-dyed shirts, organic food, and incense thrown in for flavour.
When Calvin Prescott makes plans to sell his land to a high-end property developer, Carmen fears that the town she calls home will be changed forever. A new neighbourhood of multi-million dollar mansions would spell disaster for Charade's simple, small town charm.
Brock and his family moved to Prescott Woods over two hundred years ago. Like the other magical beings of the woods, they are immortal and imbued with special powers. Destruction of Prescott Woods would mean more than a change of pace for Brock and his kind—it would mean death. Brock can take on the appearance of anything—including animals of all sizes and shapes—in order to get closer to Carmen and save his home.
As Carmen learns more of the secrets of Prescott Woods, she finds that Brock is irresistibly strokeable, regardless of his appearance. She also uncovers danger, family drama, and the most luxuriant subterranean spa she can imagine.

What happens at Volare STAYS at Volare…
Ever since her relationship with Mark crashed and burned, Chloe's been unable to take off and reach the big O. Enter Damien Walters, a deliciously unconventional sex therapist. Damien's therapy sessions take place at his nightclub, and Chloe quickly sees why admittance to Volare is by-invitation-only. Volare's patrons, who are Damien's satisfied and discreet former clients, leave their inhibitions at the door when they walk past the bouncer. Anything goes on Volare's dance floor…
Using a few key accessories and some hands-on help from Volare's regulars, Damien enables Chloe to reach her full sexual potential once more. And he has a special proposal just for her: Chloe can join him on the Volare crew as his accountant and therapy assistant. It's an offer Chloe can hardly refuse, especially given the fact that Damien's the man with his hand on the throttle.
With the pulsing beat of Volare's dance floor, the seductively suave Damien bent on pleasing her, and her newly restored sexual prowess, Chloe's position at Volare seems like a dream come true. However, she's going to have to help Damien get over some of his own issues in order for the two of them to soar together.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of exhibitionism/voyeurism and the use of sexually enhancing toys and accessories.

The Classics Exposed…

A fighting man from Earth and a haughty princess from Mars—their romance will set their worlds on fire.
John Carter, red-blooded American soldier and fortune hunter, embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. He’s transported to Mars—a dying planet ruled by violence.
As an alien to the red planet and its gravity, Carter is gifted with great strength. His superhuman attributes come in handy—the bloodthirsty green Martians value triumph in battle over all else. Carter fights both red and green Martian warriors, but loses his heart to the jewel of Mars—Dejah Thoris.
Dejah Thoris is the granddaughter of the most powerful leader of her planet. She is captured by her enemies and awaits a cruel execution. John Carter is willing to fight to the death to save her. He’s handsome, powerful and clearly attracted to her—but the earthling’s uncouth manners offend Dejah Thoris’ highborn sensibilities.
Carter yearns for the beautiful princess, even as she turns a cold cheek to him. With life and death in the balance and their hearts on the line, what will it take for Dejah Thoris of Mars to give herself to John Carter of Earth?
And what deliciously exotic surprises await the lovers when their relationship finally deepens…?
