Strictly Review proudly welcome guest author,
Thanks to Veronica for asking me to guest at Strictly Reviews. I'm excited to announce HER VAMPIRE HUSBAND is now in bookstores! I'm doing a blog tour through mid-April, and the complete list of stops is at my blog.
Today I thought I'd chat a bit about my sassy werewolf princess heroine, Blu Masterson. She is over-the-top sexy and likes to have fun and doesn't care much what others think about her (unless it's really important).
When I create characters I like to find pictures of movie stars or even models clipped from a magazine to inspire. I wasn't exactly sure what a werewolf princess should look like, so I just started scanning through the magazines I had when I stumbled on this gorgeous pic of Angelina Jolie. Wow. She screams sass and spunk. I had the image for my heroine Blu. And I loved the bright wig so much, Blu started wearing wigs in every scene of the book. Fun! But why did she want to wear them? That was a discovery I made about halfway through the book.
So if you put a lime-green wig on a girl she starts walking a certain sexy way, and her clothing choices turn risqué. It was fun dressing Blu. She's color gone wild, and uses it as a defense mechanism much like those ruffle-necked lizards with the wild colors use their bright colors to scare off prey. (Or something like that.)
She doesn't scare off the hero, Creed, though. Initially freaked by her in-your-face appearance, Creed soon learns there's a kind, lovely, and a little bit scared, woman beneath the colorful attire.
Thank you Michele for being with us today! And just to let everyone know that Michele will be stopping by off and on today to answer questions and reply to our commenters. So please leave some comment love for the amazing Michele Hauf!
I'd like to give away a copy of MOON KISSED to one lucky commenter today! Tell me, if you could just have fun with dress-up and flaunt your sexy side, how would you dress to go out on a date?

Blurb for HER VAMPIRE HUSBAND:
She may resist his bite, but she can't resist his charms…
Werewolf princess Blu Masterson won't allow her seductive vampire husband to consummate their marriage with his bite, marking her forever. Alone in a secluded estate with her sworn enemy, Blu curses the marriage arranged to bring their rival nations together, especially since Creed Saint-Pierre calls out to her most feral desires.
When Blu uncovers her pack's secret plot to destroy the vampire nation—and Creed—she is forced to confront her growing feelings for her sexy undead husband. Will she choose the only life she's ever known or accept his vampire bite?
Blurb for Vampire's Tango:
Vampire Alexandre Renard never met a more intriguing woman than Veronica Marshall. He waited for weeks for the mysterious woman to make her move...and wasn't disappointed when they shared a seductive dance at a Paris tango club. Their passion made him want to savor their embrace forever--even though he knew that Veronica was waiting for her chance to destroy him....
Faced with an early death, Veronica wants to do some good in the world before being forced to leave it. But as her game of cat-and-mouse with Alexandre turned into nights of unforgettable pleasure, how could she destroy the man she came to love?
With time--and their enemies--against them, they will have to fight to win just one more day in each other's arms....
