They have a Problem
Walking a marital tightrope between opposite worlds, Max and Cee Cee’s paths place truth and trust at odds when outside threats force enemies to become allies. The time to take a stand for their family and their future is at hand. Time to rise together for the survival of all they love!
“Every delicious word on the page exhilarates with a sensuous ferocity. Hopelessly addicted.” – NYT bestselling author, Darynda Jones
Elizabeth, thanks for hosting a stop on my new release, RISE BY MOONLIGHT’s blog tour!!
I also have to thank you for that shared love of the otherworldly that’s taken us several times to New Orleans, the city that inspired my “By Moonlight” series, and for my fascination with Tarot which found its way into the series via one of its heroines, a French Quarter psychic.
Being on sites where my books take place helped add an incomparable depth to the stories. While on our week-long visit to NOLA back in 2010, what fun to have written my promo articles for Book 1, MASKED BY MOONLIGHT, in the Quarter House where Silas and Nica will later reside. To take swamp boat tours on Max’s bayous, ride the street cars, enjoy Haunted History tours through the Bradys’ Garden District and Colin and Mia’s Quarter, take plantation visits to homes like Kip and Ophelia’s, and embark on an enthusiastic quest to sample all the authentic cuisine we could find along the way. Then be lucky enough to return last year for a special event (Happy Anniversary to you and Kenton!) for another chance to explore more settings for RISE BY MOONLIGHT, the final book in the series.
We soaked it all up, from Court of the Two Sisters and the Old Absinthe House to taking an hour-long post-vow renewal carriage tour through the neighborhoods and having fortunes told in Chartres Street shops and on the Square while serenaded by the sounds of my favorite city. How else could I have incorporated those tiny details like the broken sidewalks (banquettes!) CeeCee and Babineau travel that are still wet after being swept clean of party debris every morning, the fortuneteller tables like Phe’s surrounding the Square, the Sunday bells from the cathedral, the constant movement of cargo along the Mississippi, and awe of that epic view CeeCee and Max must share from their penthouse high above the rooftops? Add the scent of the city—old and worn, rich and spicy, damp and soul-deep hot. And the sounds—music from every doorway and street corner, accents from every corner of the globe, the jingle of carriage harnesses and honks from the steady stream of cabs and tour buses. The taste—powdered sugar beignets, sweet crawfish, tangy BBQ, rich gumbo, right from the Gulf to the table seafood, and Hurricanes in plastic cups while walking. The sights—exotic dancers through open doorways in the middle of the day, mimes and living statues, streetcars and lines of weary carriage horses and mules flicking off flies while they doze by the square.
Those things are the heart of this unique place called home to my shapeshifter outcasts who search for the promised leader who’ll save them from surrounding threat. Max Savoie’s city. My favorite city for you to enjoy as you travel the pages of RISE BY MOONLIGHT.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!

It’s hot out, just about everywhere in the country right now. Really hot! So, I thought it might be a good idea to offer some ideas on how to stay safe and have fun while cooling off. Safety? Hydrate, and don’t let yourself get overheated, even if a shower is all you have to cool down. With that in mind, you might want to try one or more of the following.
I blog there the 18th of each month!
