Toni has been gracious enough to allow me to review her work and I'm excited to have her with me today. She also is doing a guest post today! Enjoy!



Hi, Aimee, thanks for having me do a guest post today! I love any opportunity to interact with my readers!

For those of you unfamiliar with my books, I like to write paranormal romance, although my books tend to have a lot of mystery and suspense thrown in. (Sometimes more so than the romance LOL) I’ve been writing since I was twelve – the first thing I wrote was a book of fairy tales called TWELVE TALL TALES. I even had another girl in school who was good at drawing illustrate them! (too bad I can’t find what I did with that manuscript- but after 30 years and a ton of moves I’m afraid its GWTW) I got hooked on horror from my dad, who used to take me to horror movies (Black Sunday starring Barbara Steele was the first) and, of course, I was a HUGE Dark Shadows fan growing up – I even ran a fan club for it in High School. I can’t wait for the Johnny Depp remake!

Anyway, I write a lot of different books, some of which have been published by Whiskey Creek Press, but I like to think I saved my best work for the indie market J My first indie, NO REST FOR THE WICCA, is about a ghost-whispering girl with a mix of Wiccan and Voodoo in her background. She’s a special agent, and she’s got a hottie Inheritor Vamp for a partner. I also did a YA fantasy, MY SUPERHERO SISTER, about a mortal girl whose father and sister have super powers.

Which brings us to my latest: RAVEN’S KISS.

Some people might not like Raven at first glance. She’s a moral girl who was turned into a Shapeshifter from a demon’s bite, and she’s a little bitter, to put it mildly. When her boss suggests she take a little “vacation” she runs smack dab into a mystery that she hopes will lead her to finally capture the demon who turned her. Raven discovers a portal that leads her into parallel time – a world where the people she knows lead vastly different lives.

She also meets the Recovery Captain in that world – a six foot redheaded Scotsman named Finn McPhee. (fun fact: I named this character after HP Mallory’s son). Although they butt heads at first, they can’t deny their attraction to each other, an attraction that deepens as they get closer and closer to unraveling the mystery surrounding the connection between Raven and a rash of serial killings…..

I’m also a bit in awe of my cover for Raven’s Kiss: it was designed by a girl named Kimberly Killion, and I think she’s fantastic! Kim’s site is : www.HOTDAMNDESIGNS.com. I would highly recommend her to any indie authors looking for a good cover artist!

I’m also the suspense reviewer/columnist for NIGHT OWL REVIEWS digital magazine! So if any of you out there are suspense authors with a book you’d like reviewed and spotlighted in the magazine, do drop me a line at tlotempio@aol.com and put “Suspense Author” in the header. I’m always on the lookout to sponsor new talent (and so is my editor).

What’s in store for the future? I have a few more novels I’ll be releasing, another YA and adult, toward the end of the year. So if you want more info, stop by either the blog: www.catsbooksmorecats.blogspot.com or the website: www.tonilotempioauthor.webs.com

My Review of Raven's Kiss

This actually kept me guessing! Normally, with prophecy books, I can get it all figured out on how everything is supposed to unfold. Oh no! Toni LoTempio totally fooled me! Which, I think is awesome.

I have to admit, when I first started reading this, it was a little hard to get into. But it quickly piqued my interested and I finished the rest without much though to what I really should have been doing at the time. The story was able to stand out from a lot of the other paranormal romance books, and that is a big bonus in a genre full of other worldly creatures.

Raven was an interesting character. She wasn't likable at first, we see her as her coworkers see her. But then we get to see bits and pieces of the real Raven and the character really starts to shine. Through all of her trials, I started to like her more and more until I loved the character.

This totally had me faked out. I thought it was going to end in a huge cliffhanger. But, alas, the author has spared us. I can't stress how much I detest cliffhangers in books. I don't mind small ones that link it to the next book, but huge cliffhangers drive me nuts. I liked the way this ended. Leaves room for more and also wraps up the main story nicely.

Packed full of adventure, parallel worlds, hunky Scotsmen and a whole slew of other creatures, this was definitely a must read. Toni LoTempio is definitely on my radar now and I plan on making sure this isn't the only book of hers I read.

And here is a little about Toni LoTempio herself!


All About….TONI LOTEMPIO

Hello! I’m Toni LoTempio, author of Paranormal Romance/Romantic Suspense/YA Fantasy! I’ve been writing ever since I was old enough to read, when I didn’t like the endings of the stories my mother read me I simply rewrote them J Even though I write mainly in the paranormal genre, I have also written straight horror, as well as contemporary romance/suspense.

In 1995, I joined the staff of SUSABELLA PASSENGERS AND FRIENDS, a pulp magazine for collectors of antique children’s literature (Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, etc.) Currently I’ve written over 300 articles for that magazine, and I was the first recipient of their Margaret Sutton Award for Distinguished Writing in 1998. I joined the staff of NIGHT OWL REVIEWS IN January 2011 as the suspense reviewer/columnist. My column, DARK STREETS, which features articles on suspense authors and their novels, is featured on a monthly basis. I love to spotlight new talent, so if you’re a suspense author, please contact me!

In 2007, Whiskey Creek Press published BOUND BY BLOOD, a tale of possession, and EBONY, which deals with zombies and the dark side of man. EBONY was #2 on the Fictionwise bestseller list for e- books for the month of July 2007, beating out Stephen King’s Lisey’s Story. (and no one was more shocked than I, LOL) In 2010, after countless attempts to land another agent, I took the advice of a fellow author HP Mallory, and self published NO REST FOR THE WICCA, which has been on Amazon’s list of top one hundred in Occult since March 2011. My short story, THE SACRIFICE, appears in the e- published anthology KISS ME KILL ME, and I also have a YA fantasy, MY SUPERHERO SISTER on B&N and Amazon. A complete listing of my books appears at the end of this bio.

Currently single, I work full time and live in Clifton, NJ, with my muses: Rocco, Maxx, Gata and Trixie. (Rocco is also known as Rocco the SciFi Blogging Cat and has appeared on the SciFi Saturday Night website and radio show, and also on the Kids Need To Read website where he holds the distinction of being the first (and possibly only!) blogging cat to support this charity!)

I love hearing from fans, so please feel free to friend me on FACEBOOK, and visit my website, www.tonilotempio.webs.com Rocco and I post daily M-F on his blog, www.catsbooksmorecats.blogspot.com
