Guest Post: Elise Hepner: Furious Temptation

Let's Welcome Elise Hepner to the blog today talking about her new book Furious Temptation.

Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance

For millennia Megaera, a Fury, has functioned as Hades right hand by passing judgment on demons who break the sacred laws. Stalwart in her moral compass, but harboring a curse triggered by rage, she walks a thin line between perfection and destruction. But when she digs into a case  uncovering a string of demon rapes, she incites a war with Mount Olympus that could ripple chaos throughout the ages.

Omen Cole was demon made during the Civil War after repeated torture at the hands of his enemies.  Sentenced to an eternity as watchdog over his emotionally frail, once human ex-wife, he’s haunted that he couldn’t save her from a brutal assault.

Now it’s happened again. And Megaera needs his testimony. Omen will sell his body—and anything else—to avenge his fragile ex-wife. If that means  an alliance with Megaera, he’ll make it the most memorable of their eternity.

Reprints and Cover Progression

Gods and Goblins 3rd edition cover
So today was my re-release of the first in my Gods Trilogy; Gods and Goblins, oh my! a comedic journey of a witch whose spells go awry for no reason and a naked god shows up in her bed in the middle of a hot erotic dream and when she wakes up, he's still there.

Gods & Goblins 2nd edition cover
Gods and Goblins, Oh My! was one of the very first books that I had wrote and published more than eight years ago. My goal at the time of writing the first book was to have the worse things I could think of happen to my heroine and how she would react to it. And of course it had to be funny. I wanted each book to have a different pantheon of gods and of course over all these years being trapped in a tree a few of them are going to be a little bit insane.

That was where the idea started.

Gods and Goblins 1st edition cover
Once the book was originally accepted, I was paired up with a great editor and cover artist. Over the years, this editor and cover artist has stalked me, heheh in a manner of speaking, until she invited me over to her own publishing house called Purple Sword Publications.

This is the third incarnation of this book and probably the last because we all know the third time is the charm. But the amazing thing is, the progression of the covers that I have had over the years.
I think this one is the best out of all three of them. I'm so happy to have this book out again and I'll let you decide which cover you like the best.
