About this author

An action movie buff with a penchant for all things supernatural and sexy, Selena Blake combines her love for adventure, travel and romance into steamy paranormal romance. Selena’s books have been called “a steamy escape” and have appeared on bestseller lists, been nominated for awards, and won contests. When she’s not writing you can find her by the pool soaking up some sun, day dreaming about new characters, and watching the cabana boy (aka her muse), Derek. Fan mail keeps her going when the diet soda wears off so write to her at selenablake@gmail.com.

But I can usually tell during the first draft if things are too simple or too predictable. That's the point where I go back and start asking what if. I also make a list of 10 and write down 10 possibilities.

For instance, in Pursued by a Werewolf, I needed to keep Avery and Hunter together long enough for her to sort out her feelings. So I made a list of 10 things that would keep her on Mystic Isle.

On that list, there were obvious reasons: her friends are there, she has an appointment at the spa at the end of the week, etc.

The option that won was for her to teach a princess yoga since she is a yoga instructor. This works out extra well since the princess and Hunter are old friends and Hunter asks the princess to request the private yoga lessons as a favor.

Avery stays on Mystic Isle. Hunter has an excuse to be near Avery (he decides to take yoga lessons too.) Find out if the ploy worked in Pursued by a Werewolf. ;-)(less)

There's no better feeling that hearing that one of my stories has touched a reader's life, gotten them through a rough patch or taught them to follow their heart.

I wish I could give this one 3.5 stars. I really liked the heroine but again, as I said in my last review, I'm getting tired of the "I can never trust again" trope and so the hero wasn't quite as much of a win for me.

I did love the set up though. And

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Jessica Lauryn Nice to meet you, Selena!


Barbara Hi Selena, thanks for the friendship! :)


Selena Blake Thanks to everyone who's rated and reviewed my books. Just so you know, yes, I do read them. And if you tell me you want a longer book or more action or less suspense or whatever, I'm gonna listen. That's why reviews are important. They help authors improve. So, start reviewing! :-)
