Three thousand years ago, six warriors of Atlantis pledged themselves to the Goddess of Sensuality, exchanging emotions for heightened senses and immortality in order to protect what remained of their lost world.

Mira fulfilled her responsibilities, denying herself pleasure for years, but she's escaped. On Santorini, she takes three men as lovers who help her make-up for lost time. When emotions start infiltrating the men's souls in her presence, they discover she's the one woman capable of returning their emotions. Now they must convince her to share their love and lives for all eternity. Will she believe their fantastic tale and trust in their love
enough to make the final commitment? Will she accept immortality, their bond, and their love?
Let's get to know, Eliza!
Hi, Stacey and everyone!
I’m so glad to be able to answer some questions for you today. First let me tell you a little about myself. I belong to TARA, the Tampa Bay area of RWA, a fantastic group of bestselling as well as aspiring authors who share their knowledge and experiences with newer writers. I’ve been seriously writing fiction since 2002 and romance since 2006. After researching the market, I discovered there were rules within the writing game, so I made a study of the business.
When my work took on a spicy twist, I went looking for a publisher who would contract my erotic romance and found several. The Wild Rose Press contracted my second book, Hot Highland Fling and shortly after that I got the ‘call’ from Siren that they wanted to contract my first story, Witch of Air and Fire. So within three months I had two releases with two different publishers. Things are still looking up. Since last May, I’ve had four books released, a combo print published, and the next book contracted. It’s been a busy year.
1.) I see you have several ménage romances available. In fiction, do you believe it's possible to portray a convincing happily ever after within a ménage?
I think I do in my ménages for several reasons: the partners have the same driving goals, everyone establishes his/her own position and/or level of importance to the relationship, and most importantly, the partners truly care for one another before they indulge in the sexual experience, and then they learn to love each other on several levels.
2.) Do you think in-depth characters and emotionally driven plots are just as important in erotic romance as mainstream romance?
Absolutely, even more so. To me erotic romance includes three parallel goals woven together, the romance (emotion), the sex (eroticism), and the plot (suspense, fantasy, paranormal, etc action). And I don’t finish reading books if I don’t identify with the characters.
3.) I checked out your books, Eliza. Highlanders, Gods of Atlantis and an array of sexy alpha men. Whew! What do you think makes a hero truly desirable to women?
A sense of humor, the ability to laugh at himself, a lusty appetite in all things, the ability to bend but never break, and a soft heart for cats.
4.) Do you read as much as you write?
I read more than I write, much more. If writing is a job, reading is like continuing education. If I’m in the car, I have on an audio book. If I’m cooking, I have my iPhone next to me, and I’m reading. You get the picture.
What type of books do you enjoy reading?
5.) What are you working on now and what can we expect from you in the future?
