MOONLIGHT TEMPTATION release day giveaway


Evie Simmons has major issues. She’s got magical powers she can’t control, she’s living in a house that isn’t hers, and her best friend is a seventeen-year-old werewolf. It’d be hilarious if it weren’t just so damn depressing. Add in the sexy shifter she can’t keep out of her mind and his hot-as-hell friend and it’s a recipe for disaster.

Dr. Dane Dimitriou knows Evie has had a hard time adjusting to her new life as part of the Etruscan magical community—almost as difficult as his denial of his feelings for her have been. And he’s got the perfect cure—his best friend, Ryan Maguire. Easygoing Ryan is the complete opposite of stick-up-his-ass Dane. He can act as a buffer. Dane can get close, but not too close. Yeah, good luck with that.

Together, these sexy men may be just what the doctor ordered for Evie. And the doctor himself may discover the cure for what ails him has been right in front of him all along.

When I started to write MOONLIGHT TEMPTATION, I really had no intention of writing a menage. Evie was meant for Dane. Everyone knew that. But then I started writing the opening scene and there was this guy who walked up to Evie and told her Dane had sent him to seduce her.

Whoa, wait a minute. That wasn't the plan. Really, it wasn't. But obviously, Dane knew he needed a partner to handle Evie and who better than the only eteri he trusts with his most closely held secret. Ryan is his best friend and the only man he can trust with Evie's life besides himself.

This is the fourth book in the Lucani Lovers series and features a few returning appearances by some old favorites, including Cat. I love to write series for this reason. You get to revisit former friends, see what they're up to.

To celebrate the release, I'm giving away two copies of MOONLIGHT TEMPTATION. 

Leave a comment, let me know what you like about my series, or what your favorite series are or just let me know you'd like to read the book. On Monday, I'll pick two names at random. Be sure to include an email address.

And thanks for reading!

(And don't panic if you don't hear from me much this weekend, the house internet has decided to go kerflooey. I'm hoping to have it fixed soon. God, I hope.)

Congratulations on the release!

I'll admit I haven't read your series yet, so I can't say what would be my favorite, but that will just have to change. How many are you planning for your Lucani Lovers series? (Great series name - btw:)

I just love the covers on all your books... it was hard to tear my eyes away from that rolling sidebar of cover goodness:)

Okay, we all know that when it comes to your books I'm a little bit of an addict.

I've been loving the way the stories flow together. Characters that show up in the background stepping forward into the limelight to get their happily ever after packed with a sweet and sexy punch.

I think I've written everything in this series and I've been waiting to see Evie recover ever since she made an appearance in her brothers book.

The excerpt just took me from simmer to boil. I mean sheesh, can you say sexilicous? I'm not sure if that's even a word but it darn well applies. Dane and Ryan are hot and seem to be exactly what Evie needs. And their story is exactly what I need!

So yeah. I could rant more but I suppose I should let everyone else chime in.

I'm waiting on Cat next and a certain God next.

Thanks for writing Mrs Julian ;)

Hi Stephanie,
Congratulations on your new release. I enjoyed reading the excerpt. Sounds like an interesting series. I had better start with book one to get to know your intriguing characters. Definitely adding the series to my TR on Goodreads. Have a great weekend all!

Finally, my internet has been restored and my world had begun spinning again!!

Stephanie Julian said...

HighlandHussy, thanks for stopping.

SIA! Hey, thanks so much for the kind words from my former roomie.

Stephanie Julian said...

yadkny, the covers are gorgeous, aren't they and I can say that because I have absolutely nothing to do with them, lol. thanks for stopping.

Thanks Cathy, nice to see you here.

Stephanie Julian said...

Sheena, Cat will be showing up in the next EC book, which should be coming late summer, probably after the July release of WHAT A GODDESS WANTS but don't quote me on that.

Cat also has a part to play in WHAT A GODDESS NEEDS, Forgotten Goddesses 2, which releases in December. I'm writing that right now.

Stephanie Julian said...

Hi Brenda, thanks for stopping and I hope you enjoy my stories.

Fire said...

Jeannene Walker said...

What a great story with all those elements! Can't wait to read it.

michelle said...

Congrats on the release Stephanie and wow, look at that cover! A different feel than the other covers.

I'm slowly working my way through the Magical Seduction series and I really like that you don't forget about the "Romance" in Erotic Romance. I also like the way a lot of the characters carry over from one book to the next. Looking forward to reading more of your books :)

Stephanie Julian said...

Hey thanks Fire, I really appreciate hearing that you enjoy my stories!

Stephanie Julian said...

Jeannene, thanks so much.

Stephanie Julian said...

Michelle, thanks and that's why I love writing series. I get to spend time with my favorites again and again.

Congratulations on the release of Moonlight Temptation! I'm really looking forward to reading it. And I'm glad it insisted on becoming and menage. :) It's what the Etruscan's do right?
