I started on a WIP a year ago named Phoenix Fire. Seriously people… there are only so many good titles in the cosmos and I have a horrible time creating titles. One WIP carries the title Haydn and Rhys story. I’m really going to have to find a name for it. Yet, I digress. LOL
Recently, I lifted the main character out of my WIP phoenix story put her in a completely different plot, wrote a completely different protagonist against her and created Phoenix Reborn. It is scheduled to publish in 2013 I give you that bit of back story to tell you how I met Michelle Miles. When I see the title Phoenix anything, my ears perk up and I take a look.
I stumbled across a promo for Michelle Miles new book Phoenix Fire.
Once I read the blurb I was excited about the story. What a great concept! and I had to add yet another book to my to be read pile. LOL. It is a VERY clever, interesting and hot.
I contacted Michelle and asked her to interview with me for my web today to promote her story “Phoenix Fire”.
Here is a picture of she and her son at The top of the McDonald Observatory while they were on Vacation in The Davis Mountains, West Texas
1. Who is your favorite character in this book and why?
I love Elena. Elena is tough and hard as nails. She’s been through hell and all she wants is freedom and a life of peace. Readers will relate to her because she’s strong and strong-willed. She doesn’t fit into any mold. She believes in right and wrong and fights for it. She protects the weak. In Elena’s world, things are black and white; there are no shades of gray. Until Cassius comes along. 😉
PHOENIX FIRE is a fantasy romance and I’d say that it’s sensual.
Kill, or be killed.
Elena Gaius is Hixyl’s most heralded gladiatrix, catching the Emperor’s eye with her unspoiled beauty and fiery temper. Determined to let no man have her, he forces her into a life of unwanted accolades—for slaughter in the Games. With independence out of reach, Elena knows each day could be her last.
Cassius Antonius is a former general hired by an underground secret order to assassinate the Emperor. When he refuses, they take away the only thing precious to him—his freedom. Forced into servitude, he meets Elena and manipulates her into helping him, forming a shaky alliance and a searing romance.
The two become unwitting pawns in the struggle to save Hixyl from the Emperor’s tyranny. But plans spin out of control with the discovery of their secret tryst, and for their ultimate act of betrayal, the Emperor demands one last entertainment—to be pitted against each other in the Games in a fight to the death.
