Diane Alberts – Why Romance?

It is my pleasure to have Diane Alberts with me today, talking about her love of romance and treating us to an excerpt from her new book Kill Me Tomorrow. So sit back, relax, take five minutes to yourself and read all about it – the trailer is fab too. Looking forward to this one! 
Why romance?
People often ask me why I write romance. Why the heck not? I
love telling the story of boy meets girl. And I love all of the passion, lust,
love, and even hatred that ensue. And, I will admit it; I am addicted to
Happily Ever After. In a world where bad news always
comes first, why not lose oneself in a happy love story? Sure, the hero might
get beat up, and the heroine might be kidnapped…but it always ends happy.
If fairytales ended with: And then they got a divorce, and
he married a woman thirty years younger than him, not many people would read
them. I know I wouldn’t.
When Jasmine and Gavin, from my new paranormal 1NightStand
book at Decadent Publishing called Kill
Me Tomorrow
, meet…they are enemies. She is sworn to kill him—and all he
wants it to make love to her. Worse yet: how is she supposed to kill him when
he’s the first man to make her feel passion?
What happens when the two enemies collide? I guess you’ll
just have to read it to find out.
Kill Me Tomorrow is a
paranormal romance book, in Decadent Publishing’s fabulous 1Night Stand series.
The series revolves around the enigmatic Madame Eve who always seems to be able
to find the perfect match for that special someone.
Blurb:
Jasmine Baruch is a
jinn-a supernatural being who fights demons with fire. While that’s difficult
enough, she’s got bigger problems. She’s a virgin, and in the jinn culture,
that is sheer blasphemy. Jinn are supposed to be passionate, promiscuous
creatures-everything she isn’t. Due to marry the next day, she takes matters
into her own hands by using 1NS. But, like the rest of her life, nothing is
easy. The man chosen for her, though incredibly gorgeous, is a demi-sanguine; a
half-human, half-demon-her enemy.
Gavin Werbato is
looking for an easy night of sex. Nothing more, nothing less. Instead, he gets
a gorgeous jinn convinced it is her duty to kill him. He can certainly think of
better things to do with her soft hands than murder. He need only convince her
of that…
Can the fire sparked
when these beings collide be controlled, or will it consume their world as they
know it?
Excerpt:
She’d accomplished nothing at all.
Nothing.
A weight sank beside her on the bed, and she shrieked.
She darted a glance at the door, but it remained locked. Of course it did—
portals didn’t hold back demons.
“Good punch.” He laughed and rubbed his nose. “Some men
might hold a grudge—but not me. I heal too fast.”
Indeed he did. A glance at his face revealed features as
gorgeous as ever. This sucked for the self-pity party she’d been trying to
throw.
She preferred him bloody and not so devilishly striking.
She groaned and dropped her head into her hands. “Why
won’t you just leave?” He caressed her arm in a lazy, seductive way, and she
shivered. “Stop that.”
His hand stopped moving, but he didn’t remove it. “Why do
I have to stop?” he murmured. “Why do I have to leave?” He traced an invisible
path leading up to her shoulder. From there, he grasped a curl and twirled it
between his fingers, as if testing its elasticity. Her scalp tingled at his
tender tug, and a jolt of lightning shot straight to her stomach, causing her
to bite back a moan.
“Because….” She lifted her head, and turned to face him.
His eyes were so blue they were nearly purple, which,
combined with his light blond hair, made him a lethal opponent indeed. How
could she resist such a gorgeous creature, knowing that it might be her last
chance to rid herself of her virginity? Yet, how could she say yes? “Because
you are half demon, and I am a jinn. We are adversaries, you and I.”
 “I’m not an evil demi-sanguine,” he assured her
calmly. “I don’t rape, kill, or pillage. I’m unremarkably human—plus a few
small details. But you are hardly normal yourself,” he drawled with a lazy
grin. “And I’d like to make love to you.”
