Michelle Roth Introduces Her Latest Series (@mroth_author)

Hi there, everyone! I’m Michelle Roth and I’m here to introduce my latest release, Bite Me. It’s the second in my vampire paranormal series, The Transfigured Ones. Magnus Corbett, my hero, was modeled a bit after Gordon Ramsey. I wanted him to be a rough around the edges guy who didn’t necessarily have time for love. I knew, whoever I matched him with would either need to be a bad ass chick who didn’t take any crap.. or she’d need to be so sweet that she called to the softer side of him. Caroline Lundquist is both of those things.

If you’ve got any questions about the book, for me as the author, or about the series in general, feel free to use the #transfiguredones hash tag and I’ll do my best to answer!

Bite MeBlurb: 

Magnus Corbett is the world renowned head chef for Usquebaugh, the wildly popular restaurant and whiskey bar inside the Foxwood Hotel and Casino. He’s certain that it was his status as one of the Transfigured that put him on the map. It will be bold flavors and his tireless work ethic that keep him there. And, if he has to be a little blunt to get things done? So be it.

When bar manager, Caroline Lundquist, develops a line of cocktails to breathe some life into the drink menu, she’s determined to have new gin-inspired dishes to pair with them. During their collaboration she finds herself falling for the side of Magnus that people rarely see. He’s sweet. Compassionate. Caring. As they begin to navigate the perils of a vampire-human relationship, both of their pasts crop up, threatening to destroy everything they’re working so hard to build together.

exclusiveMagnus

  1. If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only mission was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?Free time? What’s that? I don’t get much, but I prefer to fiddle in the kitchen or read a book. I deal with people day in and day out, so when it comes to my downtime, I can be a bit selfish.
  2. What impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they’ve known you for a while?I’ve lived a long time. If I expend any time or energy on someone, I tend to expect a lot. I try to weed out the assholes, liars, and other bad apples. People probably find that incredibly abrasive. In the end, once I feel like I can trust someone, they know that I’m loyal. My own family kind of checked out on me, so I sort of make my own.
  3. What’s your idea of a good marriage? Do you think that’ll happen in your life?I grew up in a typical stodgy British home. I doubt my parents even liked each other, let alone loved each other. I haven’t a clue what makes a good marriage. I’d hold on to it tightly if I ever thought I found it, though.
  4. What are you most proud of about your life?I’m a world renowned chef. I can work anywhere I choose. I did that in spite of this being a non-Transfigured dominated industry.

 – And what about something more personal?

Living your dream? Making something out of nothing? How is that not personal? Did you write these bloody questions?

– Why is that so meaningful to you?

I did it completely on my own. My family kicked me when I was seventeen. I managed to finish high school and go to culinary school on my own. There was no silver spoon or college fund. I did it on my own.

  1. What are you most ashamed of in your life?I could have been nicer to people, looking back. I don’t always have to be so abrupt. I find it easier, though. I definitely could have been nicer.
  2. If you could spend the day with someone you admire (living or dead or imaginary), who would you pick?Auguste Escoffier. The man was bloody brilliant. I’d love to sit down and pick his brain.
  3. Do you think you’ve turned out the way your parents expected?I don’t think they had much hope for me. They pretty much checked out of my life when they found out I was Transfigured. Then they fought for the next decade or so about who had the faulty genetics. I don’t think they thought much about me at all. I’d love to say I didn’t think of them, but it would be a lie. I do. And it’s not kindly.
  4. What do you believe about God? What do you suppose God thinks of you?There’s a lot of pain and suffering in the world. People get sick. People lose loved ones to horrible accidents. Meanwhile, there are some of us who live forever whether we want to or not. It doesn’t seem fair. I’m not sure a kind and loving god would do something like that.
  5. Is there anything you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done? What would happen if you did it?It’s been roughly forty years since I’ve been to the beach during the day. I’d love to do that but it would destroy my skin and eventually kill me. Painful.
  6. What’s the worst thing that’s happened in your life? What did you learn from it?I’d probably say that my family is the worst thing to happen to me. What kind of awful parents withhold love from a child because of a genetic defect they can’t control? No matter whether my children are Transfigured or not, I’d love them. That’s what I learned, I guess. Tolerance.
  7. Tell me about your best friend.Veronica is my best friend and my sous chef. She’s probably one of the few people who puts up with my crap. I trust her implicitly. She’s probably the closest thing that I have to a sister.
  8. What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done to someone? Why?Despite the fact I’m a bit of a prick sometimes, I don’t intentionally hurt people. I’ve had to fire a few wayward souls, but that’s about it. They either stole, lied, or didn’t know their ass from a hole in the ground.
  9. What would you like it to say on your tombstone?Since we pretty much just turn to a pile of ash, a tombstone seems a bit much.
  10. Describe your ideal mate.She’d need to be strong. Someone who didn’t take any of my garbage. She’d have to be engaging. A good conversationalist. Well read. Smart. Funny. Beautiful wouldn’t hurt but it’s not a prerequisite. Not a bloody stick figure. She’d need to enjoy eating, because I would enjoy cooking for her. Taking care of her in that way.
  11. What are you most afraid of? Being alone for eternity. The usual suspects.
  12. What’s the most important thing in your life? What do you value most?My space. I can only handle so much social interaction, so having my personal space is hugely important. I feel like, with time alone, I recharge.
  13. What do you like best about yourself? Least?I’m driven to succeed. I prefer to be solitary most of the time. I know that’s not exactly healthy.
  14. How do you feel about your life right now? What, if anything, would you like to change?I’ve got a good life, for the most part. I’m happy with my career. I’d like to find someone to settle down with, though.
  15. Are you lying to yourself about something? What is it?There’s a part of me that wishes that I wasn’t so solitary, that wants to be outgoing and friendly. I want to be social, and happy go lucky. I just don’t trust people.
  16. What trait do you most deplore in others?People who lack common sense. Critical thinking skills are important in life, and there are people who don’t develop them or refuse to. Drives me bloody mad!

mfha-450-675-compressed-400x600

Stella Whitman has inherited her mother’s country home. When she finds it in utter disrepair, her cousin suggests that she call Men for Hire in search of a handyman. When he arrives, she’s somewhat shocked to find that his deep brown eyes and rugged good looks are giving her some very inappropriate thoughts.

Despite his instant attraction to Stella, Ian Starling has convinced himself that they need to keep things strictly professional. He’s been burnt before and has vowed never again. It becomes increasingly more difficult as he gets to know her, though. Then one rainy night changes everything…

  1. If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only mission was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?

    That’s part of what I enjoy so much about working for Jennifer at Men For Hire. I don’t always have to work. If I need a day off, then I can usually take it with no problem. Hmm.. My ultimate day off? I’d probably take in a football game and then put in some hours working on my furniture building. I don’t get to do that nearly enough.

  2. What impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they’ve known you for a while?

    I’m a little quiet, so I think most people assume I’m either shy or not bright enough to handle much beyond manual labor. When they get to know me, I’d like to think they’ll realize there’s more to me. I like books, science, art, and film. I can hold up my end of a conversation. I’m a decent person, I’d say. And there’s not nearly enough of that in the world.

  3. What’s your idea of a good marriage? Do you think that’ll happen in your life?

    Been there, done that. Failed miserably. I’m going to take a pass on this question.

  4. What are you most proud of about your life?

    Life hasn’t always been kind. I think making it to the other side of those trials is what I’m most proud of.

What sort of trials?

Earlier, you mentioned marriage. That’s probably the worst of it. I got married young. My ex decided after nearly ten years of marriage that she much preferred the me that didn’t give a damn about money or bills or responsibility. It broke my heart.

Are you still in love with her, then?

Talk about getting right to it. Christ. But to answer your question, no. I think I just held on out of sheer stubbornness. We hadn’t been right in a long time. I just wish she hadn’t been so bloody brutal about ending things.

  1. What are you most ashamed of in your life?

    You’re really into me talking about my feelings, aren’t you? This goes back to the divorce, not to beat a dead horse too much. My parents were together for decades. Still are. I hate that I failed at that.

  2. If you could spend the day with someone you admire (living or dead or imaginary), who would you pick?

    My grandfather. He died a few years back. I miss him terribly.

  3. Do you think you’ve turned out the way your parents expected?

    Not sure. They never really pushed me to be any one thing. They were of the ‘follow your heart’ school. I’d like to think that they’re pleased. I get the ‘We’re proud of you’ bit a lot, but I think parents are required to say that stuff.

  4. What do you believe about God? What do you suppose God thinks of you?

    I’m not entirely convinced there’s anything up there. I’m one of those that wants empirical evidence and I’m not likely to get it at this stage.

  5. Is there anything you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done? What would happen if you did it?

    That’s a tough question. I’m my own man, so I basically do whatever I want to. I’ve got nothing.

  6. What’s the worst thing that’s happened in your life? What did you learn from it?

    When I was sixteen, I was in a car wreck and broke both of my legs. My mate had been drinking at the time but like a dumb ass, I got in the car. Had a couple surgeries, and months of recovery. Drunk driving is stupid. We could have died. Never drive drunk. Never ride with anyone who’s been drinking. That’s what I learned.

  7. Tell me about your best friend.

    Probably my brother, Thomas. He’s a year older than I am. Most weekends you can find me hanging out with him. We’re either building something or watching some sort of sports. He’s a good guy.

  8. What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done to someone? Why?

    I really don’t recall doing anything that terrible to anyone. I’m kind of a pacifist, not to sound like a total pussy.

  9. What would you like it to say on your tombstone?

    He lived before he died.

  10. Describe your ideal mate.

    She’d be beautiful, of course. Not just on the outside. The inside too. Smart, funny, motivated. Maybe someone who’s the creative sort. Someone who could offset my seriousness.

  11. What are you most afraid of?

    Not finding anyone to settle down with. I want what my brother and his wife have. What my parents have. I’d love to find it. I’m being much more particular about it this go-round, though.

  12. What’s the most important thing in your life? What do you value most?

    My family. They’re important to me.

  13. What do you like best about yourself? Least?

    My ability to adapt. The other side of that, though, is that I never have to truly make a decision. I can just sort of let things happen as they may and then deal with the fall out.

  14. How do you feel about your life right now? What, if anything, would you like to change?

    It’s a good life, for the most part. A little bit lonely. I’d like to meet someone, but lately I’ve been working so much that it’s been hard to even date. Maybe I should devote myself to that more.

  15. Are you lying to yourself about something? What is it?

    A number of things, probably. The bad thing about denial is that you never realize you’re in it until you’re out of it.

  16. What trait do you most deplore in others?

    Liars. I can’t stand them. I prefer the honest truth, even if it’s ugly.

Trouble Walked In by Michelle Roth (@mroth_author)

Troublewalkedin-evernightpublishing-jayAheer2015-smallpreviewHi there, everyone! I’m Michelle Roth and I’m here to introduce my latest release, Trouble Walked In [The Forsaken Few 1]. This story started as a submission for the Bad Alpha Anthology but quickly grew out of control with regards to word count. There was no way I was going to be able to tell the story I wanted to in a measly 10,000 words!

Once that was clear, I decided the book was more important than the anthology. It became MUCH easier from then on! Rather than just a wolf shifter story, I decided that I would make this about something larger. Lorelei, Florida was born.

Each forsaken by their own kind, a small community of shifters from all walks of life have come together to form an unbreakable bond that defies the laws of nature. Both the hunters and the hunted stand side by side to protect themselves from all who would threaten their way of life.

This is Ronan and Moira’s story…

The moment Moira Devereaux walks into his bar, Shapeshifter Ronan Kelly knows she’s going to be trouble. No matter how tempting she is, he won’t risk the safety of his makeshift pack. He has every intention of sending her on her way until he hears her compelling story.

When Moira’s father, the mayor of Lorelei, tries to force her to wed a man she doesn’t know, she runs to one place he won’t follow. The local shifter bar. Nothing could have prepared her for the immediate attraction she feels for the owner, Ronan.

In a moment of weakness, Ronan offers her a job and a place to stay despite his misgivings. No one is more shocked than he is when he discovers that she’s his mate. Will he be able to convince her that he’s worth taking a risk on or will he be forced to let her go?

If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only mission was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?

I don’t get a whole lot of free time, but when I do, I love to drive out to the national forest and go for a run. When you get deep enough into it, there’s a section where humans don’t travel. There’s something about having my paws in the dirt that makes me feel connected to the universe. Nothing like it.

What impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they’ve known you for a while?

Well now, I think that depends on the person. I’m a big guy, so I think I probably give off a heavy ‘don’t fuck with me’ vibe. Once someone knows me for a while, I think they realize that for my friends, I’m as loyal as they come.

What’s your idea of a good marriage? Do you think that’ll happen in your life?

I’ll let you know if I ever see one. (snorts)  My father treated my mom like an indentured servant. Raised his hands to her on occasion. I can tell you for sure what DOESN’T make a good marriage. Having your alpha mate fucking terrified of you. I- I don’t want to talk about this anymore. Can we move on to something less depressing?

What are you most proud of about your life?

I’ve been on my own since I was 18. Managed to not get myself killed in Iraq and Afghanistan during the war. Came home and worked my ass off until I had enough money to buy the bar. I made something of myself.

And what about something more personal?

I’d say that’s pretty personal.

Why is that so meaningful to you?

When I left home at 18, my old man was just waiting for me to come crawling back to the ready-made life I had waiting for me. I think I shocked them all by making something of myself. Anything that can make that bastard choke on his words is meaningful to me.

What are you most ashamed of in your life?

Shit. You’re really into me talking about my feelings, aren’t you? I’d have to say that leaving my mother behind. She was the only one in my family that showed the least bit of kindness to me. I send cards at Christmas but I have yet to hear back. I doubt I ever will.

If you could spend the day with someone you admire (living or dead or imaginary), who would you pick?

My mother. That woman could give a hug. I don’t know if she’d be inclined to at this point but it’d be worth finding out, I suppose.

Do you think you’ve turned out the way your parents expected?

Not a chance.

What do you believe about God? What do you suppose God thinks of you?

Of course I believe in the Earth Mother. It’s hard to be part wolf and not be able to feel her. When I’m shifted and touching the earth, I can feel her like a heartbeat. It’s comforting.

Is there anything you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done? What would happen if you did it?

That’s a tough question. I’m my own man, so I basically do whatever I want to. I think I wanna skip this question.

What’s the worst thing that’s happened in your life? What did you learn from it?

War. It’s nasty business. I saw some shit that really screwed me up for a long time. Two tours in Iraq, one in Afghanistan. Dead children. What did I learn? I fucking hate the war.

Tell me about your best friend.

I’ve got a couple. I’d say Ty and Sarge are probably my closest friends. Can we not call them best friends? It sounds like we’re about to slumber party.

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done to someone? Why?

I’ve killed them. I’m not proud of it, but it was the war, ya know?

What would you like it to say on your tombstone?

No tombstone. Cremate me, please. Throw a party, don’t do any of that somber shit where everyone’s in black.

Describe your ideal mate.

I’m thinking that whole ideal mate thing is just a myth. I somehow don’t think there’s anyone out there for me. It’s a punishment for abandoning my position as Alpha, I think.

What are you most afraid of?

This goes back to the last question. Never being forgiven. I don’t give a shit about my father but, it’s hard to be alone.

What’s the most important thing in your life? What do you value most?

My makeshift pack, I guess. I’d fight for them. Die for them if need be. What’s more important than that?

What do you like best about yourself? Least?

No matter what life throws at me, I move forward. The other side of that coin is that I keep things locked up tight. I wonder if that won’t come back to bite me in the ass some day.

How do you feel about your life right now? What, if anything, would you like to change?

It’s a good life, for the most part. A little bit lonely. I don’t know that I have time for a relationship, really, but it’d be nice at this point in my life. Settle down, have a couple cubs.

Are you lying to yourself about something? What is it?

I don’t think so.

What trait do you most deplore in others?

I can’t stand bullies. People who are mean just to be mean. That sets me off more than anything else. I can forgive a lot but cruelty isn’t one of those things.
