Crystal: Today as part of this Bridging The Gap Promotions Blog tour I have the chance to ask Brynna Curry a few questions. Welcome Brynna, I'm so happy to have you here today. Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today?

Brynna: I’m from Alabama and as southern as they come. I’m married to my high school sweetheart  and we have three children who are nearly all grown up, or so they think.

Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for your current release? 

Brynna: A dream. 

Crystal: What are you currently working on? 

Brynna:The second book in my Triple Star Ranch series Tempting Taylor and the first in an urban fantasy romance series Circle of Light, which is a spin off from Elemental Magic.

Crystal: Do you have any special routine that you follow when you are writing?

Brynna: I listen to music (earbuds, my kids are loud) and work in a darker room, in a corner. Sometimes my cat curls up with me.

Crystal: Did you have to do a lot of research for this book or any other? If so do you have a fascinating fact that you have learned you would like to share with us? 

Brynna: This series required a ton of research on every topic from police procedure and courtroom drama to castles, Ireland, Scotland, faeries and even witchcraft and old wives tales. Let’s just say it was enlightening and sometimes terrifying.

Crystal: Who are some of your favorite authors that you like to read?

Brynna: Sherrilyn Kenyon is my favorite author. I love her Dark-Hunters. I also like Nora Roberts, but there are just too many favorites to list. 

Crystal: Is there any genre you haven't written that you would like to try?

Brynna: Fantasy of the sword and sorcery variety.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us?

Brynna: My favorite scene is from Fire’s Ice and one I wasn’t going to write and thought it was too soon, but Devin’s last line in this scene was constantly in my head. I just had to write it and hope readers loved the quick, steamy scene.

Thank you for having me over today!
Excerpt 3 from Fire’s Ice: Elemental Magic Book Five

The sound of splashing water rippled past his ears. Temptress.

Knowing Ari was just on the other side of the door, naked and wet, willing to succumb to every fantasy he could imagine, was a torment in itself. All he had to do was accept her sultry invitation and toss aside his plan. But she deserved a sweet slide into love, not the wild, mad rush of pleasure he craved. One palm rested on the door of its own volition, ready to comply. Not yet. Now, if only his traitorous body would listen to his heart. “That depends, sweetheart.”

“Oh?” she called out from the other side. “On what?” 

Devin chuckled at the line, but he just couldn’t resist teasing her. “What are you wearing?” 

She laughed. “Bubbles. Lots of bubbles. Share them with me.”

He saw it so clearly. Ari’s creamy skin peeking through the frothy bubbles. Open, welcoming. Need clawed under the skin, screamed at him. Why the hell not? Feeling a quiver of desire vibrate through his body, he called her bluff. “And what would you have me do with those bubbles? Hmm, Ari?”

“Oh, I am sure you could think of something. Something deliciously wicked. I have shared your dreams. I know your fantasies, Devin.”

Oh, you have no idea. His mind made up, Devin opened the door.

She lay in his huge garden tub, feet propped up on the rim, eyes closed, waterfall of black hair piled on top of her head. A soft smile graced her face. So she was enjoying their teasing banter. “Have you changed your mind and decided to join me?”

“Maybe.” No reason he couldn’t push them both to the edge. Pulling the t-shirt over his head, Devin tossed it into the corner. He laid his cellphone on the sink--out of danger--kneeled by the edge of the tub and dipped one hand into cooling water, using his magic to heat it.

“Mmm. Nice.”

He let his voice drop to a whisper as he leaned close to her ear. “I want to slick my hands over every inch of your skin until you shiver from the heat.” His fingers found the back of her knee in the water and trailed higher along the inside of her thigh. “And then…”

A soft “Devin” slipped from her lips as Arianne’s eyes flew open. “And then…”

Born the son of a Scottish laird a thousand years ago, but now trapped by his cousin's spell, Devin McLoch has seen countless battles and death. The erstwhile thief has turned away from darker pursuits to lead a life of peace, protecting those he loves and considers part of his clan.
However, there is one woman he can never forget, who must be given a chance to change, to accept her heart and his.

  1. I love that the author got the idea from a book. I think the guy on the cover of book 5 looks like Johnny Depp---Rae
