Tuesday Teaser: Siobhan Muir

Hi all,

I'm delighted to welcome the lovely Siobhan Muir on my blog today. Her latest release is an intriguing twist on an old trope - a dragon and a virgin, and of course a hero who jumps the virgin - erm, fights the dragon. So, without further fuss, please welcome SM - the other one ;)

Thanks so much for having me here today, Sage. I love visiting your blog. :)
So with a hectic weekend behind me and a crazy week ahead (I now have edits I have to finalize), Monday comes as a surprise. The usual schedule is all cranked around because the kids are out of school for the summer and I’m thinking – VACATION! Beach reads, hanging by the pool, and spending warm evenings watching sunsets with the person I love.
Yeah, not so much. Las Vegas is in the middle of the Mojave Desert and it’s HOT, and not in the good way we erotic romance authors write about. ;) It makes me more of a hermit during the summer months than any other time of the year. But that’s a good thing for you, right? It means more books for you to read.
My recent release Not a Dragon’s Standard Virgin, is a great vacation getaway tale because it takes you to a remote Scottish village where a dragon has been wreaking havoc on the residents. Their solution to the dragon? Appease it with virgins. Yeah, that totally works, right? :D
Isabelle Andersen’s solution to getting OUT of the sacrifice is to find a man to take her virginity, which sounds easy, but isn’t when the village is looking to get rid of her. Not your standard virgin by any stretch of the imagination. She picks Jon Swift, a warrior who stops in town on a windy spring night, and makes her blood run hot. It helps he’s pretty handsome and moves with a predatory grace.
The only problem is Jon has sworn off virgins and is just there to kill the “dragon” to protect the village. Isabelle’s request throws him for a loop because he’d like nothing better than to take her up on her offer, but bitter experience makes him more willing to use his steel sword than his masculine one. ;)

Here’s the blurb:

Sacrificial virgins are so sixteenth century, but unless Isabelle finds a man to take her innocence, she’ll likely be next.

For Isabelle Andersen, being a virgin in a dragon-plagued Scottish village is dangerous. Potentially the next dragon sacrifice, Isabelle’s only solution is to lose her innocence, and fast. All she needs is one handsome stranger she can coax into bed, but Lochmore Cott doesn’t get much in the way of visitors.
Jonarrion Swiftwind has sworn off virgins. The last time he took one to his bed, his family paid the price for his lust at the hands of her demon-possessed father. He’s made it his mission to destroy all demons. Nothing distracts him from killing this demon until lovely Isabelle offers him tea. And her virginity.
Just one night of passion makes Jon realize he doesn’t want to let the independent beauty go. But will Isabelle accept him when she discovers the only real dragon in her village… is him?

Set in historical Scotland, this story is a fantasy paranormal romance, but there is a hot warrior wearing a kilt, a bold Scotswoman willing to try anything to survive, and a deadly dragon. What’s better than that for hot summer reading? Thanks so much for stopping by and happy reading!



Siobhan Muir lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, with her husband, two daughters, and a vegetarian cat she swears is a shape-shifter, though he's never shifted when she can see him. When not writing, she can be found looking down a microscope at fossil fox teeth, pursuing her other love, paleontology. An avid reader of science fiction/fantasy, her husband gave her a paranormal romance for Christmas one year, and she was hooked for good.

In previous lives, Siobhan has been an actor at the Colorado Renaissance Festival, a field geologist in the Aleutian Islands, and restored inter-planetary imagery at the USGS. She’s hiked to the top of Mount St. Helens and to the bottom of Meteor Crater.
Siobhan writes kick-ass adventure with hot sex for men and women to enjoy. She believes in happily ever after, redemption, and communication, all of which you will find in her paranormal romance stories.

Siobhan’s recent release, Not a Dragon’s Standard Virgin, is from Siren Publishing, and she has published Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack through Siren, and Her Devoted Vampire through Evernight Publishing. She also has a free read out entitled A Hell Hound’s Fire introducing her new Cloudburst, Colorado series.
