New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione penned her first novel at the age of 13 and hasn't stopped writing since. She has been a U.S. Air Force meteorologist, an EMT, and a professional dog trainer, and you never know when one of those interests will pop into her novels.

She lives a nomadic existence with her U.S. Coast Guard husband and son, so her writing career has been a blessing -- a job that moves easily.

She writes dark paranormal romance for Grand Central Publishing (formerly Warner Books,) and contemporary romance for Red Sage and Samhain. Under the pen name Sydney Croft, she writes erotic action adventure romance with partner Stephanie Tyler.

Okay, so I’ve had a lot of questions about what’s coming next. This month, we have a new MoonBound Clan Vampires story in Blood Red Kiss, AND a new Rising Storm episode called Storm Warning, which will release with the rest of Season Two on September 27th. Yay!

Also, the new website is coming, I swear. We’re building a new house, so building a website has taken a bit of a back seat, but I’m hopi...

“I'll bet you could make a woman throw out all her toys”
Larissa Ione, Pleasure Unbound

“Tayla cursed under her breath. "I was just explaining to Eidolon that Sin is a Smurfette."
Wraith swung his big body around to study Sin with blue eyes that were very different from Shade's, E's. and Lore's. Sin's, too. "Nah. Smurfette is way hotter."
"What the fuck is a Smurfette?" Eidolon was seriously getting annoyed now.
"There's this cartoon called The Smurfs," Tayla explained, slowly, as though Eidolon were the child here.
"They're these little blue people, and they're all male. But one day a female shows up. She shouldn't exist, but she does."
Eidolon considered that for a second. "How did she get there?"
"An evil wizard named Gargamel made her," Tayla said. "In a lab or something."
"So you're suggesting that an evil wizard made Sin?"
"Of course not, silly. I'm just saying she's a Smurfette. A lone female amongst males."
Eidolon frowned. "Did the Smurfette mate with the males?"
"Dude." Wraith grimaced. "It's a cartoon.”
Larissa Ione, Ecstasy Unveiled

“Congratulations on the new spawn, by the way."
"Well," Gem said, "that was better than what Wraith said." She lowered her voice and did an imitation of Wraith. "Way cool about the fuck-trophy.”

Patsy I just found out that I am the winner of a copy of Rogue Rider (Lords of Deliverance, #4. I am a FIRST READER of this book and I feel so lucky and am very excited to get started when this book arrives.

Perry ★TBBSisterhood Blog★ Thanks for the friendship Larissa!! You've made my day!! <3

Jasmine Hey Larissa,

I was just wondering if there was any way one can find out which part was written by you and which part was written part the other writer in the Acro series. When I was reading it I kept trying to figure it out, but I think I could mostly figure it out when the hot scenes came on, and I would be like ya this one was you. I would love to know if I was right. And if not that's cool, just figured I would put the question out there.

Thanks for the update on the LOD books, I guess I will be reading them sooner than I thought. Can't wait! Oh just you know your page has 5 books listed for the LOD books maybe it was a typo, you probably already know that.


Sorry I had to refer to the other writer, as the other writer I just can't remember her right now. But don't worry I'll get to her books soon, and if there as good as ACRO's were, I won't forget her name. I promise! LOL!

message 23: by Vivian

Vivian I was just wondering is there going to be any more storm books under Sydney Croft or will there be a spin off? Either way I would very much love to read more in that series. I got a kick out of Annika and Creed.

Hi Mina! There's actually only 4 in the series...but they continue off the Demonica's kind of all one big series, though the LOD books are connected by the Horsemen. The book after the LOD series will be Reaver's, and will either kick off a new spinoff or will stand alone. Hope that makes sense! And thanks for the friendship!

message 21: by Jasmine

Jasmine Thanks for the friendship Larrisa! Love the Demonica series. Can't wait to read Lord of Deliverances Series. Thanks for letting me know there's going to be 5 books in that series. I won't start reading it until they are all out. I just hate having to way for next one to come out after done with the previous one. So I'll be checking in often. Happy reading!

Jen Hi Larissa! Thanks for friending me - it's always nice to meet someone else from the 'burg, though I'm originally from the north. It looks like we share some interests in books - or, at least, I'm interested in some of the ones you're reading/have read. Talk to you anon.
