Today is release day for Forever Blue. I asked Elodie what inspired her to write it.
‘Forever Blue,’ my December 20 release with Hot Ink Press, was inspired by the woodland near where I live. There’s a mysterious feel about the woods in autumn. It often feels as if something is watching. From the window of the room where I write, I can see across to nearby woods. I hear owls hoot at night. At dusk and dawn, there are strange mists that rise from the trees. It’s very lovely.
That’s great 🙂 tell us a little more, what’s it about?
Would love to, the five things I wanted for the story, ‘Forever Blue’
- A heroin who was capable, brave, ready for love, and not afraid to go for it.
- A hero who was hot, sexy, but not afraid to admit his love and need for his woman.
- A story that had an element of mystery and strangeness to fit the season.
- A story that took place in the country where silence and nature can conjure up the ethereal.
- A love story that sizzled with sex, but also touches your heart with happiness
I have bought a couple of the guy’s with me, they are eager to tell you about Forever Blue from their point of view :0
Rubs hands together. Well hello there *grins* So what’s hot about Forever Blue?
The love scenes.
The way Claudie responds to me. Her courage. The love story. It’s unusual and steamy.
The love scenes are hot, but then so is Jasper, I mean just look at him. The story is sumptuous. It’s rich in description so that you feel as if you’re in the places described, although I’d rather you weren’t in the love scenes. (smiles)
Jasper tell us about Claudie:
She’s a professional, and clever. She makes films. I think she’s beautiful and smokin’ hot. She cares about the environment and the creatures in the forest. (Laughs then and takes Claudie’s hand)
What about Jasper, Claudie, tell us about him:
He’s tall. He has these gorgeous muscles, that’s from working in the forest I guess. He’s sexy, sensual, loving. His kisses are to die for.
Jasper leans across to her, “Only my kisses?”
They gaze at each other for a moment.
So in just one word can you describe the story?
After fanning myself, the atmosphere is sizzling here 😉
If you are not already chomping at the bit to go grab a copy, here is the blurb and an excerpt
Claudie loves living in the countryside and close to the forests. She’s a film maker and works for the wildlife trust. One night she steps onto her patio and sees a man sheltering there. She confronts him and he runs away.
Jasper has watched Claudie for a year. He fell in love with her, but he has a secret, one that might mean he can never approach her.
Will love and fate find a way?
What secret must Jasper hide?
What’s the strange blue dust that turns up on Claudie’s patio?

Now for a snippet of this hotness 😉
Claudie was back and she smiled at him. He ran his tongue over his suddenly dry lips. He followed her to the work surface where she poured coffee into two cups. Jasper stood close to her.
She turned to him.
He slowly, gently took a few strands of her hair. It slipped between his fingers and he gazed into her eyes. He saw her lean toward him and knew she’d return his kiss. He bent his head to hers. A fraction away from her lips he gazed into her eyes and saw lust. His cock jerked in his jeans. He met her mouth, kissed her slowly, lingering, and sucking her bottom lip a little, as his heart hammered in his chest.
She kissed him too, and brought her hands up to hold his face. Her gentle touch sent shivers of desire all the way down his body. His cock grew heavy. The longing to press against her overcame him and he pulled her into his arms.
Her gasp of pleasure caressed his ear. She pushed her stomach against his erection and her luscious tongue touched his lips.
He opened his mouth. The urgent need to fuck her made his legs feel like jelly.
Her kiss continued.
Jasper relaxed. She wanted him.
