Book 2 ““ Stolen Trilogy
Available July 28, 2009


His past tore them apart. Her lies thrust them back together.

Now a killer’s out for revenge, but the biggest threat for both may just be the heat they thought they’d already lost….

Antiquities dealer Peter Kauffman walked a fine line between clean and corrupt for years. And then he met the woman who changed his life—Egyptologist Katherine Meyer. Their love affair burned white-hot in Egypt, until the day Pete’s lies and half-truths caught up with him. After that, their relationship imploded, Kat walked out, and before Pete could find her to make things right, he heard she’d died in a car bomb.

Six years later, the woman Pete thought he’d lost for good is suddenly back. The lies this time aren’t just his, though. The only way he and Kat will find the truth and evade a killer out for revenge is to work together—as long as they don’t find themselves burned by the heat each thought was stolen long ago…

Elisabeth’s Interview

BK: Thank you for joining us, Elisabeth!
What is sure to distract you from sitting down and working/writing?

EN: Oh, there are so many things. My 4-yr old is probably the biggest distraction. Followed by the DH, who works from home, and finally, the Internet. Facebook, Twitter, blogs…all those social networking promo aspects writers are a part of to promote themselves really suck up my writing time.

BK: Promo is such a big part of this career, isn’t it? What are you working on presently? What about upcoming releases?

EN: I just finished a new romantic adventure proposal, which I’m very excited about. This one deals with a lost Mayan city most in the academic world don’t really believes exists, but which is rumored to be filled with priceless treasures and the key to several Mayan secrets that will impact the way the world views history. It’s a true treasure hunt/quest book replete with danger and mystery, high action and adventure and steamy hot romance.

EN? Right now I’m starting my second “˜Eternal Guardians’ book for Dorchester. The first book in my new paranormal series ““ MARKED ““ is set to release May 2010. I’ve really only just begun writing the second book in the series, which centers around a race of super-buff hero-warriors, all descendents of the heroes from Greek Mythology, but I’m already having a blast with these sexy Argonauts and can’t wait to really get cooking on this second book.

EN: As for other releases, STOLEN HEAT, the second in my Stolen Trilogy, releases July 28, 2009. After that, the final Stolen Book ““ STOLEN SEDUCTION (Shane’s book) ““ hits the shelves in January 2010.

BK:I remember you mentioning that Argonaut premise on the Bradford loop and being so jealous I didn’t think of it. It sounds so awesome. What’s the best compliment you ever got on your writing or a book?

EN: I have to say, the best compliment I’ve gotten came from my husband. He’s not a big reader, and honestly hadn’t read more than a few chapters of my work even after I sold. Last August we went to Hawaii and he asked me to bring STOLEN FURY with us so he could read it on the beach. The book had already been through production, so I knew if he hated it, there was nothing I could do about it. Reluctantly, I printed the book for him and had it bound (didn’t have arcs yet) and gave it to him.

EN: Now, my husband loves the beach, but he’s not a big swimmer. He prefers to soak in the sun, drink a good beer and read a magazine or two. Several times over the course of our vacation while he was sitting on the beach reading my book, he’d put it down and head off to swim in the ocean. All I could think was, “What the heck?” Finally, after angsting over his obvious dislike of my work until I wanted to scream, I followed him into the water and said, “Okay, buddy. What gives? You don’t even like the water and you keep going swimming. Do you hate the book THAT much?” He got a funny look on his face, pulled me close and said, “I can’t help it. We’re here with friends. And your book is HOT! I have to keep going swimming to cool off!”

Best compliment I’ve ever gotten.

BK: *Laughing* That’s a great story, Elisabeth, and you’re right–high praise, indeed.
If you could time travel to any time or place—the past or future—where and when would you go to, and why?

EN: Fun question! I’d go to Ancient Greece and the site of the first Olympics. I have a real fascination with all things Greek, and the thought of being able to stand in Olympia, to watch the games and see which myths are true and which simply became legends really floats my boat.

Thanks for having me here today, Beth!

BK: My pleasure, Elisabeth. It’s always refreshing visiting with you. 🙂

    Hi Elisabeth!

    It’s so great to see you here at Beth’s. Please don’t enter me in today’s contest Beth – I’ve already read “Stolen Fury”, and LOVED it. I can’t wait to read Peter and Shane’s stories.

    Not long for “Stolen Heat” now!

    I really liked the epilogue to “Stolen Fury”, that you posted on your website Elisabeth. It was great to read the finale to Lisa and Rafe’s story. The action and wonderful dialoue you penned into that story was exciting and entertaining.

    All the best to you Elisabeth!
    Warm Regards

    Hi Elisabeth!

    Facebook can be so leathal; I think: I’ll just get on for 15 minutes and it turns into hours 🙄

    The story about your husband reading Stolen Fury is hilarous! I’m sold! 😆

    I always was part facinated and part terrified about ancient Rome and the Colosseum: gladiators, lions, tigers, and filling the Colosseum with water to have actual naval battles!

    Hey all,

    Thanks for the great comments! :mrgreen:

    The Stolen books have been a lot of fun to write. I love history and adventure, and I’m a sucker for research, so the Greek/Egyptian relic angles have been intriguing to play with.

    Thanks also for the kudos on the books/excerpts/covers. My editor just told me the cover for the third Stolen book – Stolen Seduction, Jan 2010) is almost done, and I can’t wait to see it! I really love this series and these characters, so I’m thrilled my pub has done such a bang-up job with them and that they’re being received so well.

    Oh, and Beth…I’m having a BLAST with the Argonaut books. And I totally owe the Bradford girls because a random comment on your group blog there gave me the idea in the first place.
