Heat of the Moment by Kate Hill

Welcome fellow Ellora's Cave author and friend Kate Hill as she talks a bit about her writing and her new release HEAT OF THE MOMENT from Changeling Press.

Kate is a fan of romance and the paranormal and has been writing for about twenty years. Her first story was a short erotic vampire tale, published in 1996. Since then she has sold over one hundred short stories, novellas and novels. Wow!  THE CHIEFTAIN’S BRIDE and VAMPIRE MASTER, have won The Romance Studio’s CAPA and, THE EMMACULATE, was nominated for a Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award. When she’s not writing, Kate enjoys reading, working out and spending time with her family and pets.

*What is your current (next) release and tell us a little about it.
My latest release is Heat of the Moment, the last story in my Combustion series. 

With his shady past, Jace didn't think any company would hire him as engineer on a research ship headed to Earth. His shipmates are willing to give him a chance to prove he's reformed -- except for the security officer, Tiana. From the moment they meet, she makes it plain she doesn't approve of him being aboard. It's hard enough when a crewmate loathes you, but it's even worse when she's the sexiest woman you've ever met.

Tiana hates everything Jace stood for in the past and she's not willing to believe he's turned his life around. As much as she wants him off the ship, she wants him in her bed. She can't trust him, but can she resist him? 

*Where can readers buy your book?  Buy Heat of the Moment

Heat of the Moment as well as the first two stories in the Combustion series are available from Changeling Press.

A couple other books by Kate Hill:

Northman's Pleasure

Everything Nice

*Do you have website, blog or other links you’d like to share?

Yes, thank you!

Have any of your titles ever been changed from your original choice?

Yes, several. Windswept was originally Birdman of the Adirondacks. Everything Nice was originally Raised and Ready. The Sweet Love series was changed to Yummy Love and Pleasured by the Bull became Naked Souls.

A lot of people think that genre hopping isn’t a good idea. What do you think?

I think it's a great idea. I don't agree with placing limits on something you're passionate about.

Do you write a novel straight through? Or revise as you go? Plan a whole series in advance? Or does the series evolve?

I prefer to work using a loose outline. I need to know the major points in the plot and the ending of the story, but I like to leave room for adjustments. Sometimes I plan an entire series from the beginning, but other times a series springs from a book that was meant to be a stand-alone story.

Thanks so much for being a guest at The Lusty View Kate!
