Monday Spotlight: Paige Tyler

Frustrated when none of the real newspapers will hire her as a reporter, Eliza Bradley takes the only job she can get – at a paranormal magazine. Her first assignment takes her to Fairbanks , Alaska to investigate the possibility that a werewolf has killed two local hikers.

She forgets about the story, however, when she meets Hunter McCall, a local college professor and an expert on wolves. The man is an absolute hunk, and she finds herself spending more time in his bed than worrying about werewolves. That is, until Eliza finds out that Hunter isn’t just an animal in the sack, he’s an animal out of it, too – of the werewolf variety! Talk about a complicated relationship!

But Eliza can’t dwell on Hunter’s little shapeshifting issues. There’s another werewolf out there with a taste for human blodd, and she and Hunter are the only ones who can stop him.

I’m so excited! My hot, paranormal romance Animal Attraction won Best Book of 2008 at Whipped Cream!

I don’t usually try to come up with a story based on a specific theme that a publisher is looking for when they put out a “call for submissions.” I tend to write whatever storyline pops into my head, so writing on demand about a specific theme isn’t really my thing. However, when I first read that Whiskey Creek Press Torrid was coming out with a new line of books called the Men of Alaska Series, there was something about it that immediately captured my attention. I had been wanting to write a werewolf romance for a while, and what better setting than the wilds of Alaska? Besides, what’s more exciting than a hot, hunky, outdoorsy hero, right?! Once I did a little bit of research on Fairbanks, the story just started to write itself!

I thought it would be more fun for my heroine to be a skeptic, so I made her a reluctant reporter for a paranormal magazine. I knew that would lead to lots of amusing interaction with the hunky hero, who just happens to be a werewolf, of course!

As I said before, I don’t usually find myself looking at “calls for submissions” from publishers, but I’m so glad I decided to write for Whiskey Creek Press Torrid’s Men of Alaska. Animal Attraction is really one of my very best books, if fact, in addition to winning Best Book at Whipped Cream, it’s also an EPPIE Finalist.

I enjoyed writing Animal Attraction so much that a sequel was in the works before I even knew it! It’s called Animal Instinct, and trust me, it’s going to be just as hot and steamy as the first one. It comes out in June, so keep your eyes out for it!

  1. Paige,

    This sounds like a great book. Very hot.

  2. Jami – Thanks so much! Hunter and Eliza have such great chemistry that they made it easy to work with them!

    *hugs*

  3. I know what you mean about the submissions. I’ve looked at a few, and instantly freeze. I can’t seem to function worrying about the deadline and what a waste of time it would be if I didn’t meet it—or worrying about sticking to the topic requested. Maybe one day, though, I’ll get that spark when I see a contest that will spur me on instead to write the story that’s waiting to get out.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Julie

  4. Julie – You’re welcome! That’s why the Men of Alaska Series is so inviting to me! It cna be any genre, as long as it’s set in Alaska and the hero is from there!

    *hugs*
