Ever since Brock lost his mate and son in a tragic murder, he’s been unable to move on. When urged to go back home and bury his past, he never expected to meet Sarah. The demon is strong, sexy, and kind-hearted. Everything a man could want in a woman.
Sarah has longed to discover the mate who completes her and finds herself wondering about the demon who left the house next door shrouded in magic. After he appears in her camera lens, it’s an instant attraction and doesn’t take long to realize he belongs to her.
When Elias steps into the picture, Sarah must fight the urges he stirs inside her. She can’t believe fate has given her two mates. Now she is faced with a decision. Choose the one who promises nights of passion and undying love, or the other who can only offer her his broken heart.
As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble for peeking at her mother’s favorite TV show, Dark Shadows. She can still hear her mother saying “It will give you nightmares.” She was right of course, but that did not stop Valerie from watching. As an adult, her love of the fanged creatures never waned. She would watch any vampire movie she could find.
Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered the genre of paranormal romance. Her first read was one of Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed Series and from there she was hooked.
Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.
Valerie is a member of Romance Writers of America and Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Romance Writers.

Please welcome Emerald Fire author Valerie Twombly to Diane's Book Blog:
How long did it take you to write Emerald Fire?
It took approximately 3 months for me to write the story.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Brock definitely. I like to call him the gentle alpha. He knows when to be a gentleman, but then there are times when he will take what is his. I love the way he says darlin’.
What inspired you to write your first book?
All the voices in my head. I’ve always been good at daydreaming and thought it might be fun to put some of those to paper.
What is your favorite book that you wrote?
I’d have to say my first book, Eternal Flame. It’s like your first child and it will always hold a special place in my heart.
What is your typical day like?
I work a full-time job so up at 4:30 am. Work from 7:00-3:30 and write during my lunch. Home I have to play with the dog, have dinner then lock myself in my office for either writing or social media. To bed at 9:00. Pretty boring, huh?
How do you overcome writer’s block?
I do one of two things. I either work on another project for a bit or read. Usually I read. There is no better way to get your creativity in gear than to step I into someone else’s world.
Can you share a little of your current work with us?
I’m working on a novella called Spanish Nights. It’s a story about a Jinn who is cursed. He has no power and is bound to earth when he meets a mortal who holds the key to his release.
What book are you reading now?
Masters of Seduction! I’ve made it to book 3 now.
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
I love my Kindle so ebooks. I read way more than I would otherwise. I do have a few paperbacks, but those are signed by the authors and are tucked away.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
You are the absolute best! I love to hear from you so feel free to drop me a line anytime. Without the fans, writing wouldn’t have the same meaning it does now.
