Interview and Giveaway: Temptation in a Bottle by Shona Husk

Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

I write mostly paranormal romance, a little fantasy romance and just recently sci-fi romance (which is a lot of fun!). When I’m not writing I like to read, run, cook and do cross stitch.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

Temptation in a Bottle is the second book in the In a Bottle series (they are all stand alone, just set in the same world). The In a Bottle series is about some goddess made sexy genies who are there to grant the innermost desires of the woman who freed them. Of course not all genies are happy with their lot in life and in Temptation in a Bottle Gage decides to break his bottle in the hope of finding freedom.

Are you a mom (or parent)?

I have two kids, both at school.

If yes do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting?

I think juggling any job and parenting is hard. The trouble with writing is that it’s easy for it to bleed over into family time as it’s always there. This year is my first year as a full time writer so I’m going to be setting some strict guidelines and only working during school hours. No more late nights! Except maybe when edits come in…

Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?

No. I have never met a vampire rock star, or kissed a goblin, or made a deal with a fairy. That said I think a writer’s unique life experiences does color the way they write and what they write about. I tend to write darker stories with tortured or wounded heroes which I’m sure says more about me than I realize.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I did the Tough Mudder (20km obstacle course) in October 2013…and I finished in just under 4 hours :)

If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?

I’m working on a third book tentatively called Lover in a Bottle which is a holiday romance between a woman and a genie who loves his job :)

What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?

I have two sci-fi romances coming out (one in a few days!) Lunar Reunion and Lunar Dancer, and two more fairy books this year, The Changeling Soldier and To Love a King. There is more exciting news to come but I can’t say yet J (I know, I’m evil)

What is in your to read pile?

The Crossroad by Mark Donaldson, VC (about Donaldson and the SAS), Coyote by Rhonda Roberts (book three in the time travelling detective series) and Mistress of the Wind by Michelle Diener (I love her historical romances and this is her first fantasy novel).

Book Description:

His only wish is to be free…

For centuries Gage has existed only to fulfill the most intimate desires of the woman who holds his bottle. Now Gage has a wish of his own—to be a real man and a have a real life even though he knows it’s an impossible dream. This time he plans to take his bottle and break it just to see what will happen.

Paramedic Sasha Watts has seen the damage falling in love does to people and she has no intention of being another of Cupid’s victims. She accidentally frees Gage without knowing what he is. After one kiss he walks away and she never expects to see him again, but the goddess Inanna has other ideas.

As punishment for breaking his bottle she erases Gage’s memory of everything but Sasha. Only Sasha can give him the life he longs for and only Gage can be the man she’s always dreamed of, but first she’ll have to open her heart and he’ll have to finish the job Inanna gave him. If he fails, he’ll cease to exist.
