Let us get this straight straightaway. Simple because Milady Erin and Shehanne share the same surname, it does not mean I had my arm broken in several places to have her here today. As you can see, when it comes to kettle and fish, the beauteous Milady Erin is quite a different sort from Shehannealthough that is not to miscall Shehanne. I do like keeping my arm intact after all.
Besides she assures me that shortly she will allow me to interview her new heroine, although why I would want to do that when she is a worse thief than Flint, why Shehanne won’t let me interview her new hero,
So here we are today in—–excuse me?—Jamaica? That place I was born in and my father ran a brothel in, that place which…..of course I love. Wishing to keep my arm unbroken anyway, I do.
A picture to assure you…
So here we are with the lovely Milady Erin, all the way from Atlanta. Goodness, a sort of Southern US place, like the kind Flint is from.
Felicitations on seeing you in our little stopover today here in Jamaica… enough said about where I was born. Can you tell us something about your journey from your homeland?
It was a rough journey by sea from Atlanta. We had a little bit of trouble around the Bermuda Triangle (I think we passed that, right?)
Well, if you did not disappear, perhaps you didn’t. The crew are making you welcome I trust?
Spectacularly. They weren’t quite sure what to do with my laptop, but everyone did enjoy my favorite vice: chocolate covered peanuts.
Well so long as Taliano did not eat it…your laptop that is. How very kind of you to think of them, although they probably would have preferred chocolate covered rum. You have brought me a pleasing little gift I see.
Indeed, my lady, an Apache dream-catcher.
How very interesting, the thought one might net a hot gent in this. Sorry? Did I get that the wrong way round?
Now….you have met the charming members of the club. Can you tell us why we should each of us spend a week reading your lovely boo, which plainly you have named after me, The Shaman’s Temptation?
Well, it’s short, so it should actually only take you one night! It’s a very sensual romance between two unlikely lovers – a beautiful bank analyst and a slightly dark and tortured Apache shaman. Had a great time writing it and exploring the interplay between their two very different backgrounds. Would love to hear comments!
Some of the things people said on Goodreads, just for some icing on the cake:
I liked the originality of the whole “tribe” “coyote thing, as we normally find loads of books with werewolves or shapeshifters being published now, but this book was very cleverly written as it gave us an insight into a more mythical and ancient tribe.
Short story packed together with a lot of punch and an enjoyable supernatural element. Loved the strength of their passion for each other and their beliefs.
Well…..Milady Moore, I must say one night would not detract too much from other things and I can tell that already the gentlemen are wooed with all this talk of punches and passion.
While I think I have cured Flint of eyeing other women, he is still a great one for eyeing everything else. He calls it booty. Is there anything I should do to disabuse him of helping himself to other people’s boats and their contents? Already we have four gondolas aboard.
I mean, how can you tell someone to give up on booty? I would have a hard time with that. Besides, you can always use another gondola – remember the Titanic?

most thoughtfully provided our fare today
, largely because the pirates eschew the culinary arts for cutlass waving, drinking and frolicking on shore with wenches. Do you have any tips for making them try at least to help my maid, Susan, in the galley? It is such a task and she gets quite fraught.
I’m a big fan of pirate take-out myself. Especially when feeding a pack of hungry kids, um I mean pirates… (ps – I let my pirates choose some of the sides themselves. Gives them a feeling of control).
what sites do you intend visiting when you leave here? Provided of course, you first sign a disclaimer that you never saw me, or Flint?
If I am on an island by myself, I would like to just visit any available beachy-y bar and park myself there with a good book. Possibly not what the Jamaican Visitors Bureau wants to hear.
Thanks for having me, Lady Fury. I look forward to more of your escapades.
A Shaman’s temptation could be the undoing of his people…
Madeleine Greenway, perfectionist and analyst for Surety Bank, has no place in her rigidly organized life for something as unpredictable as a man, much less a Native American shaman. Sent to the White Mountain reservation to help the tribe finance its new casino, she meets Tak, a proud, beautiful Apache, and finds herself surrounded by something magical in the Arizona desert. His touch becomes a passport to otherworldly bliss, and the strange coyote she sees makes her question what’s real. But it’s the amazing sex with Tak that makes Madeleine lose sight of her goal—to guarantee that Surety Bank’s investment in the casino won’t fail.
Last in a long line of shaman shape-shifters, Tak Nah-Kah-Yen has sworn a vow of celibacy to his gods. But Madeleine’s lithe body and honeyed lips compel him to forswear his pledge, claiming her for his own. His passion for her overshadows his link to his gods at a time when he most needs their help. Desperate to find funding for the casino and lift his people out of poverty, he’d accepted start-up money from less than savory sources who are willing to kill to guarantee their profit—the profit Madeleine’s bank jeopardizes…
