Visiting us today is author Lisa Carlisle, who writes paranormal erotic romance. Welcome Lisa!
Hi, thanks for having me. I’m here to talk about romance series. What is it about a series that we find difficult to resist? Each book ends leaving us wanting more. What happens next with the characters? Or who will be the characters in the next part of the series? I know I’m addicted to several series. What about you?
I write an erotic paranormal romance series with Ellora’s Cave called Underground Encounters and even as I’m writing them, I love wondering what’s going to happen next. When I’m working on a story, ideas come to me on the characters or future ideas for the series and it’s difficult not to run off and start the new story!
My series includes a variety of supernatural characters—vampires, shapeshifters, gargoyles, or humans with supernatural abilities—and I love the conflict that arises from their differences. No matter what type of character, one theme seems to resonate—they feel alone in the world, and perhaps unlovable. Yet when they meet their right someone, well, you can guess what happens next!
Ellora’s Cave just released an anthology called Night Encounters, which contains the first two books in my Underground Encounters series:
Smoldering Nights, an erotic vampire novella
Fiery Nights, an erotic paranormal romance

Night Encounters: “Smoldering Nights” By Lisa Carlisle
Nike loves visiting the goth club Vamps—she can exchange her firefighter uniform for a slinky fantasy outfit. There she runs into the man she’d been admiring from afar at a rock-climbing gym. He’s been the star of all her sexual fantasies, so is it any wonder they end up in his private room upstairs? Just when things begin to heat up, Michel’s enemies appear.
Michel isn’t an ordinary mortal. And someone from his past is on the hunt for vengeance. Michel and Nike are forced to run and hide out in a coastal cottage in Maine. They can’t resist their attraction and spend the nights exploring each other’s bodies while trying to sort out how they feel. Can they overcome their differences while evading the predators chasing them?

I gravitate toward stories with dark, brooding, isolated characters (think Heathcliff, Dracula, Darth Vader, and Severus Snape) and tough, independent, caring heroines. My reading tastes very widely, though, and I’ll read almost anything–especially paranormal romance, mysteries, and non-fiction on any new topic of interest.
When I was younger, I served in the Marine Corps and lived in Parris Island, the California desert, and Okinawa, Japan. Then I backpacked alone around the US and Europe and lived in Paris, France. These experiences have provided me enough settings and characters for a lifetime of writing. Currently, I live in the Boston area with my fantastic, supportive husband and two kids.
I love to stay in touch with readers. Visit www.lisacarlislebooks.com. More books in the series are coming as well as a military romance. Follow me to stay tuned!
