  2. Hi Michele. Do you have a “family tree” that shows all the connections between your characters in your books? I love the different family members in your books but it is sometimes hard to keep track of everyone.


    • Hmm, I haven’t made up an official family tree. If you tell me which book or character it is, I can detail family for you. I usually have the Club Scarlet site working, which details each character and their relationship to others, but I’m having a little trouble with that at the moment.


  3. Hey Michele!

    I’ve read a few of your books and I love them all. I just finished reading your newer book Her Werewolf Hero ans I’ve gotta tell you it’s amazing. My favorite of all though is Her Vampire Husband. I don’t know why but since I read that book a couple of years ago it instantly became one of my favorites. I bought it as an ebook and I’ve been recently trying to find a paperback copy of the book to complete my wicked games series and came up emptyhanded. Could you please suggest me where to find it? Preferably an online store that ships worldwide because I live in Greece?
    Thank you in advance!!


    • Marina, I’m not sure you’ll be able to find it in paperback format since it’s been a few years since its release. Your best best would be a used book store. Sorry! I sure wish it was still available to readers who like paperbacks. 😉


  4. Hi Michele
    Just read Dark Rapture and Wicked Angel books for the second time. It felt as if there may be more…. Sebastian was writing his book and was weary abt Scarlett finding out his secret that would tear them apart. Plus what ever happened to Vince and Gary? Pls tell me there is another book.
    Hope to hear from you son 🙂


    • Lili, hi! There is more to Sebastian’s story that I haven’t had a chance to tell yet. It’s the space in the 19th century when he discovered music that hasn’t been told. Will I write that story? I’m not sure. I would love to, so I’d never say never. 😉

      Vince, well, it’s sort of weird with him. When I wrote my very first story for Nocturne, I was writing about Vincent Lyons. This was my way to give him his story. Then, since it was one of the launch books in the line and editorial was really feeling its way around what they wanted and didn’t want for the Nocturne stories, I did a MAJOR rewrite, ended up changing the hero’s name and his background, a bit. He’s still a singer. So, to me, that was Vince’s story, which was From The Dark. So if you want to check that out, know that it was originally written exactly for Vince, but some alterations were made.

      And as for Gary. He will never have a story but I’m sure he’s happily playing in a band somewhere.

      Thanks for the interest!


  5. your books are great! i love reading your stories because im fascinated with the paranormal stories. the first one i read from harlequin was yours and ive been hooked every since. i think i have almost every book youv’e written. i also like the desire, historical and blaze readings. im a book person. so thank you for your wonderful stories!


  6. Hey Michele,
    First I want to thank you again for my free autographed copy of A Venetian Vampire. I just finished it last night. As always you did another fabulous job on this book. The sexy, vulnerable Dante and the spirited, determined Kyler characters were just so well written. Your descriptions of places and characters encompasses the reader so much that we are able to see through your eyes who they are and where they are. It was an awesome story filled with action, danger, oh so sexy scenes and affection!! Keep up the fabulous writing.
    I will leave a review for you on Amazon as soon as it allows me to.
    Thank you.


  7. Michele,
    I have been comparing my list of your books against your list and there are a few that are not available on Amazon Kindle: Dust Me, Baby, One More Time – Night of the Living Wed- A Kiss of Frost – Here is My Heart – The Unforgiven – Hark the Herald Angel Falls – Seraphim – Gossamyr – Rhiana.

    Are these only in print or out of print? Please let me know.
    Thank you,
    Diane Maglioli


    • Okay, so Dust Me, Baby, One More Time is in an anthology called FAERIES GONE WILD, published by St. Martin’s Press. That should still be available digitally. The story was never published as a single novella.
      Night of the Living Wed is also part of a FREE digital anthology Harlequin put out, titled A VALENTINE FROM HARLEQUIN (I had to look that up; forgot the title). You should be able to get that at any online retailer. That was a fun story because the publisher gave each author the same opening paragraphs and we had to write a story indicative of the line we write for. My editor suggested zombies, which I intially balked at because zombies are not romantic. But once challenged, well, I had to give it a go.
      The rest of the titles have had their rights reverted back to me recently and I plan to republish them. Hopefully in 2017! But I have so much on my plate, I’m not going to give release dates for them because I just don’t know when it will happen (but it will).
      Thanks for checking!


    • The Venetian Vampire is available right now! You can find it online in paperback or digital format. Or you can buy it in stores starting Feb 7th.


  8. Mchele,
    I am always excited when I get one of your books when I get my Harlequin Nocturnes. I just had to share that when I started to read Venetian Vampire the name of your heroine made me giggle a little. First because Kyler is my son’s name and second I have never heard it used as a girl’s name! However, I love your books and can’t wait for the next one.


    • Hey! Thanks for telling me about your son. When I was writing this story, I wanted a different woman’s name, and, at the time, I thought I’d made the name up. Yet surely it was used somewhere by someone. I think it’s one of those names that can work for a guy or a girl. I think it fit the heroine perfectly. But really cool to know there’s a real Kyler out there somewhere!


  9. Hi Michele! I received a coupon code in a subscription box for a free digital copy of “The Geek Gets the Girl” from Smashwords, but when I tried to redeem, it says it is no longer available. Can I still get a copy? I can give you the coupon code if you need it. Thanks so much! Cheryl


  10. I love your books, especially how they all seem to interconnect. I love the Saint-Pierre books but I can’t find one about Trouble Saint-Pierre. Have you written one or will you be doing one in the future.


    • Ah, Trouble. I know exactly who his heroine is. And I have been waiting for him to tell me his story, but he hasn’t yet. It will get written, and I’m hoping it’ll happen soon so I can get it to readers by end of next year. Fingers crossed he starts talking to me soon.
