Interview with MaryLynn Bast, author of One Bite To Passion!

Please help me welcome MaryLynn Bast, author of No Remorse and One Bite To Passion, to FMB!

Holly: Hi MaryLynn! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

MaryLynn Bast: Hi Holly and thank you for having me today. I moved to Las Vegas in 2010 from Texas where I grew up. I work as a consultant with a contractor for the US Military and travel from base to base all over the US and around the world. I enjoy writing paranormal fantasy romance because I can allow my imagination to run rampant. I enjoy reading, traveling and spending time with my family and friends whenever possible.

Holly: Do you remember when you first become interested in writing?

MaryLynn Bast: As a young child I always made up stories to keep myself busy and out of trouble. As a teenager I used to write romance stories. I guess you can say my head has always been in the clouds.

Holly: Your first novel No Remorse came out just this year and is the first novel in your, Heart of a Wolf series. Can you tell us a little about this novel?

MaryLynn Bast: No Remorse is a paranormal romance based on Amber, a werewolf who was born with special abilities. She is forced to remain on the run to avoid the council who hunts her, to find the source of her abilities. Blake is someone she met along the way who was special to Amber, but she left him behind because she didn’t want him to get hurt. One day, she comes across Blake, to find that he will die if she does not help. By doing so, Amber is drawn into his life and finds out that he is the pack leader, and now her mate. Going from lone wolf to being in the middle of a pack, she doesn’t know if her abilities will be enough to keep Blake and the pack safe when the council suddenly arrives.

Holly: From what I understand you are working on the second novel in the series, Softest Touch. Would it be okay to tell us a little about it?

MaryLynn Bast: Softest Touch is the second novel and is currently about half way completed. Marcus is a detective from Chicago who transfers to Texas where he is following suspects in drug trafficking. When the couple is killed, Marcus has to protect the six year old boy who is involved, who may also be the only witness to what occurred in the household the night of the murders.
Candice is a child psychologist with special abilities. With the softest touch, she knows what has happened in the persons past and what they are thinking…among other abilities.
With the boy not talking, Candice is called in to help with the case. When Candice is run off the road for being involved, Marcus must now protect her as well.
Oh, did I mention Marcus is a werewolf? He will enlist the assistance of Blake and Ambers pack and the sexy werewolf everyone is demanding to know more about….Adam along with a new friend Darius. 
This story introduces more paranormal characters into the mix. I am updating with details as the stories unfold. 

Holly: You have five novels planned for this series in all at the moment along with a few short stories as well. Do you think five might change to a higher novel count in the future or is it most definitely going to be just five?

MaryLynn Bast: Now that I am digging into the series, I see the likelihood of there being a lot more stories along the way.

Holly: Your newest novel which came out just May 18th is called One Bite To Passion, a erotica paranormal romance novel published by Renaissance E Books. Can you tell us a little about this novel?

MaryLynn Bast: One Bite To Passion is about a woman name Paige who is on a work assignment in Japan. She is dedicated to her work and to her marriage. Her husband, Dalton, had an ongoing affair for two years which he swears he has broken off. Paige suspects he has continued with the affair. Frustrated, she allows her friend and co-worker Rosa to talk her into going out to relax and have some fun. Paige meets Casey, an attractive younger man who is very interested in her. Attracted to him, she is drawn into a night of passion in his arms and feels like a new woman. Dalton suddenly shows up and all hell breaks loose. Paige is drawn into the middle of something she never knew existed…vampires. Named the Chosen One, she feels betrayed by everyone around her. Paige must decide if she is willing to sacrifice her life to save the man she loves.

Holly: What was your inspiration for this novel?

MaryLynn Bast: My trip to Japan was a big inspiration for this story. I actually met “Casey and Rosa” while working. We went out into the night life, seeing couples interacting and the drama unfolding was a big inspiration. Hanging out in my co-workers room with the people she invited over, drinking wine and talking was a lot of fun. Of course, I changed the names and added a lot of fiction in with the fact to protect the innocent…so no vampires were harmed in the writing of this erotica.

Holly: Do you have plans for more novels of this genre and with Renaissance E Books in the future?

MaryLynn Bast: Yes, I plan to continue writing this genre. In fact, the editor is already after me for my next story which will be ready in the next couple of weeks.

Holly: Are you perhaps working on anything at the moment?

MaryLynn Bast: “A Justified Kill” is one of Amber’s Tales in the Heart of a Wolf Series and will be published in June as an indie e-book.
“Adam’s Story” (title TBD) is a short story I am working on that tells how Adam meets Blake and Serianna from No Remorse. The story touches on Adam’s abilities and why he is different.

I am currently working on a sequel to One Bite To Passion, title is TBD (Rosa’s story). I am half way through with the story.

“A Softest Touch” is book two in the Heart of a Wolf Series. I am currently 45,000 words into this novel. My targeted finish date is November 2012, hopeful release Jan/Feb 2013.

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

MaryLynn Bast: I just want to say thank you all for being so supportive. As a new author, I didn’t realize how much work goes into getting my name out there. I am getting a lot of people contacting me telling me how much they love my stories. Without the fans, there would be no one to hear our stories.  Thank you for being there for me! I will do my best to continue to bring you fun and interesting stories.

Random Quickies!

Holly: What is you favorite book?

MaryLynn Bast: I don’t have just one. But I love the Dark Hunter Series by Sherilynn Kenyon.

His tongue licked gently across her lips and she sighed, leaning into him, allowing him access. She threw caution to the wind and went with it, her tongue met his tentatively. Like she did, he tasted of wine and beer. Warnings bounced around in her head, telling her this was not supposed to be happening. But she was sick of being uptight. Tired of always doing just the right thing, constantly worrying about what would happen if…
With her arms to her side, Casey pulled her to him. One hand going to her waist, the other lifted and his big hand cupped the side of her face tenderly. Her arms lifted and her hands came to rest on his shoulders. She had to do it now. Push away or she wouldn't be able to. She fought with her emotions while his tongue fought to go deeper into her mouth.
She relented, giving in to the heat of the moment. Her hands snaked up around his neck, the other into his soft hair. She pulled him closer and kissed him back.
She heard Rosa giggle but was too engrossed in the lips and tongue devouring her to pay any real attention. Paige heard the rustle of clothing and thought vaguely that Rosa was allowing Tadd to remove her shirt. She had never done anything like this before, not with another couple in the room. The thought terrified her, yet it also turned her on even more. Groaning, she deepened the kiss and pressed herself against Casey's muscular chest. It felt good to be held in strong arms.
The room was hot; the windows were open to let in the evening air. The fans circulating thick humid air did nothing to cool the heat of bodies in the room. The military base didn't have air conditioning in any of the buildings accept for commanders quarters and offices. The barracks and lodging buildings were supplied with oscillating fans. But none of that mattered. Paige wanted to feel him holding her, his skin touching her, him inside of her. She broke the kiss and buried her face in Casey's shoulder, trying to catch her breath and make sense of what she was doing.
When she looked up, Rosa and Tadd were going at it hot and heavy on the couch. His pants were unbuttoned and pulled down far enough that Paige could see the top of his ass cheeks. Hips rocked back and forth against Rosa while she ground against him.
Casey saw her look over and he glanced too then gave her a lopsided grin. He slowly leaned forward, giving her time to either move away or meet him half way.
Oh, what the hell, she met him half way and this time, the kiss was slower. His tongue delved into her mouth and licked at her in slow sensual moves that had her wanting to straddle him like Rosa had straddled Tadd. The rustle of clothing sounded again.
Paige heard Rosa and Tadd getting up from the couch.
Rosa met her eyes over Tadd's shoulder and winked. Turning around, her back to Tadd, she grabbed his hands and placed them on her breasts. He was eager to oblige and began to massage her bared perky mounds, pinching at her dark rose colored erect nipples.

MaryLynn Bast resides in Las Vegas when she is not traveling the world with her job as a contractor with the US Military. Bast enjoys writing paranormal fantasy romance erotica stories because she can allow her imagination to run rampant, her characters can obtain abilities not possible in the real world...or are they?
