Hi and welcome to my blog, Marie. Please make yourself at home and grab a drink from my hunky cabana boys, Zeke and Jake. To get us started can you tell us a little about what you are working on or have coming out?
Hello! My name is Marie Mason and I write shifter romances. Whew, glad that confession is out of the way. I’m working feverishly to finish Blind Date with a Bear which I hope to have out by mid-November. The characters are being a little difficult; they don’t want the story to end either. In December I hope to have Christmas Wolf, a very short shifter romance up for the holiday.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Chocolate and men. And ice cream. Preferably chocolate ice cream on a man.
Name one thing readers would be surprised to know about you.
I secretly want to try a ménage-a-trois – I mean really what woman wouldn’t?
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
The mountains. There’s nothing more beautiful than driving along a stretch of interstate on a clear blue autumn day.
How do you get yourself in the mood to write?
Open my computer and stare at the blank screen. I also go back and re-read books from my keeper shelf – yes, I have shelves filled with paperback books even in this electronic age.
What is the strangest source of writing inspiration you’ve ever had?
Standing in a check-out line at the grocery store. I know the plot has been done before, but what if that handsome stranger just grabbed you and kissed you?
Are your characters able to love or do they need to be taught?
They need to be taught. The women are usually not as self-confident as most. They need someone to show them they are loveable. Yes, some readers might disagree with not having a strong, confident heroine, but really, what person is that secure in themselves that they think they are truly loveable? To me, that person is even stronger when they allow themselves to open up to another person than the individual who has no doubts.
The heroes in my stories just don’t believe in love. They believe in sex and mating, but not the pesky emotions. To them, mating is loving. There’s a fine line between being domineering and being dominant. Most men have difficulty learning that lesson. But don’t worry, my heroines always make sure they learn the difference.
What can readers expect next from you?
Blind Date with a Bear is scheduled for release in mid-November and Christmas Wolf in December. And, I’m just saying, maybe you’ll see a character or two (hint, hint) from Blind Date sometime in 2014.
Thanks for coming. Is there anything else you want to add? (links, news, etc)

Title: Mate of the Alpha
Author: Marie Mason
Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Alpha-Paranormal-Shifter-Romance-ebook/dp/B00FWG1DD0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1381846415&sr=8-1&keywords=MATE+OF+THE+ALPHA+MARIE+MASON
Ethan Scott was reluctant to claim his mate, Lily Reynolds. He was afraid his carnal needs would be too much for the curvy innocent. His wolf was of another mind, pushing the man relentlessly to mate. But Ethan knew once he had the brown-haired beauty there would no turning back. He’d claim her, mate her, and bred her. When she’s attacked by a group of rouge wolves, Ethan fears he has left his claiming too late and will lose his mate forever. When he comes to her rescue, he discovers the spirited Lily is more than ready to be the mate of an alpha.
Lily Reynolds has been crushing on her boss since she started work at Wolfe Enterprises six months ago. She knew the chances of attracting the wolf into a long-term relationship were slim to none – slim being a state she hadn’t achieved since childhood. She loved her curves and knew there was someone out there who would love every soft, luscious inch of her voluptuous body. Heartbroken, she knew Ethan Scott wasn’t that man despite the hot and cold signals the wolf shifter had been given her for months.
He wanted to strip away the pinstriped navy suit and finally see the well-rounded body that was pushing both man and wolf to the brink of madness. He wanted to see what she wore underneath. He had fantasies of her being bare beneath the businesslike façade, or wearing silk underthings made to drive a man wild. Did his mate have a lingerie fetish? If not, she soon would once he claimed her.
As it was, he was nearly undone by the sight of her.
In the past, he knew he had gravitated toward women who held only the most basic appeal to him. Thin in body, shallow in nature. He used them for gratification and nothing else, always waiting for the day his mate would walk into his life. A mate like Lily whose full, voluptuous body called to the beast in him. Her full breasts that begged to be kissed. Her curvy legs that pleaded to be spread. Everything about her was delightful. He knew he could spend days with her in and out of bed and never want for anything else.
