Excerpt #1:

That’s it, I’m leaving. She didn’t need to stick around and be reminded of another night she’d been stood up by a blind date and passed over by every other available male.

After slipping her shoes on and grabbing her clutch, she headed for the door.

“Leaving so soon?”

She shivered at the sound of the deep, sexy voice. Spinning around, she gazed up at an enormous, captivating man. Very rarely did she meet a guy so much taller than herself. His black velvet justacorps fit tight across his broad shoulders, but not too snug. And the silk shirt lining his wide chest matched the color of her dress. Almost as if they were made for each other. I can only hope.

Flowing down his back, his long, thick, dark mane appeared to have feathers throughout. In the dim lighting, his hair, and even his skin had a faint blue glow. She couldn’t help but be enthralled by his presence; was sure she stood in front of him with her mouth hanging open.

“I…I’m going home.”

“When the night is still so young?” He brushed his hand down her bare arm. “What could be more fun at home? Perhaps you might even enjoy some company?”

How she’d love to spend the night in this man’s company, the toys in her nightstand long forgotten. But this had to be some kind of joke. She looked around for cameras, anxious faces. No one as hot as this man could want to spend a night with her. “It’s been a long day. I was stood up by my date, and my friends no longer need me to stick around.”

Great! She’d just told the guy she was alone. Might as well have put a target on my back.

He rested his hand on her hip, sending intense sexual energy zinging straight to her core. “You mean you wouldn’t want to enjoy an evening in my company? Because I’m your date.”


I am happy to welcome author Jessica Subject to my blog! Thank you so much for doing this interview with me!!
What would you consider a perfect day for you as an author?
Any day where I am able to get a satisfactory amount of writing done without being interrupted. Those days don’t happen very often, but I’m hoping for more of them come September.
What sort of research (if any) did you do for this novel?
Most of my research for Satin Sheets in Space involved the beginning of the story where the characters go to an 18th-century costume ball. I had to research the costumes they would wear, and what music would be played at the event.

Is there any character in particular that you enjoyed writing about the most?
All three of the main characters were fun to write, and I also enjoyed adding in Josh and Tamara from Beneath the Starry Sky, to update their story.

Were any of your characters or events from the book based of real life people or experiences you have had?
Experiences, no. But two people helped to inspire Danyka’s height and build. The first is my daughter, who is the tallest person in her class, taller than many kids in the older grades, too. And the other was a pet food representative who used to come and visit me when I was the manager at a pet food & supply store.
 
Are there any other projects you are working on that you would like to tell us about?

I have a paranormal erotica story, The Power of Three, coming soon to Decadent Publishing, as well as my fifth book, Sudden Breakaway, in their popular 1Night Stand series.
I’m also working on the second book in my Mark of the Stars series, and a new series that I’m really excited about.
Did any of your characters give you a difficult time while writing this book? 
That would be Volan. He wanted to be involved sooner than Danyka was ready for.
Cappuccino or Coffee?
Neither. I don’t do hot drinks, except hot chocolate every once and again. Though if I’m really tired in the morning, I may grab an Iced Cappuccino from Tim Horton’s.
What do you like to do in your down time?

Read. Or I may watch some television or a movie while on the computer. I can’t just sit around and watch the television or I fall asleep. I also like to walk (fast) or go hiking.

Do you relate to any of your characters?

I think there is a piece of me in every single one of my characters. While I’m writing them, I feel their emotions, so yes.

Thank you so much for having me today!
