FRIDAY FIRSTS with Nicole Morgan

The first five lines of... TEMPESTUOUS

Michelle took several calming breaths, trying to untangle her frazzled nerves before opening the door to the small massage room. His mere presence turned her into a klutz, and she prayed today she would be able to keep her cool. Normally, she was the picture-perfect employee, always professional and cordial with all of her clients, but something about this one kept her feeling like she was constantly trying to walk a tight rope. Despite her occasional mishaps, he always remained kind and never made her feel foolish. She did, though.

1. Who was your first love?
Oh my God! Bad memories! Some complete Dork named, Neil! LOL
2. What was the first Rated R movie you ever saw?
 It was a horror movie when I was in grade school, titled April Fools! I still love that movie! J

3. What was the first romance you ever read?
I guess it was a Nora Roberts book, but I couldn’t even begin to tell you the title of it. I’ve read probably hundreds, if not thousands of romance books. It’s hard to keep them all straight! LOL

More about Nicole
Thanks for having me! I am a multi-published author of erotic romantic novels, which more often than not have a suspenseful back story. Erotic romance mixed with a good old-fashioned whodunit. 

In additional to her books, Nicole also has a recurring column called, "Sex and the Single Woman" in BT Showcase's online eMagazine. Also, she has recently partnered up with three of her author friends and became Four Seduced Muses, a blog dedicated to the steamier side of romance.

FRIDAY FIRSTS with Margaret Fieland

The first five lines of... RELOCATED 

“What do you mean I must undergo a psi exam? The Terran Federation legislates against any use of psi.” The speaker, a human woman with wild gray hair, glared at the immigration official.

I gazed at the official. Like most Aleyni, he stood over six feet, slender, with extra wide hands, and thumbs able to bend all the way back.

Fun Facts about Margaret
1. Who was your first love?
Her name was Trudy, and she was ten. I was seven. My father had a house in Connecticut that he'd built before he was married. It was a three bedroom ranch right on Candlewood Lake, and all his friends had teased him for building such a large place. We used to spend every summer, all summer, there until I was about twelve.

The house was on a dead end road, and Trudy's family lived a few houses down from ours. Alas, her parents divorced and she moved to California with her mother. I missed her terribly.

2. Tell me about the first novel you ever wrote. What happened to it?
Unlike many writers, I did not always want to be a writer. I wrote my first novel in 2006, I believe. In 2010 it was accepted for publication. It's due out sometime this year.
The impetus for the novel was a terrible fire that took the lives of a friend's wife and all of his children. The whole tragic affair haunted me, so about six months after I started writing fiction, I sat down one weekend and wrote the first draft of the novel, “The Angry Little Boy.” It took me three or four more years to learn enough to rewrite it into something publishable. In the novel, the boy, Alvin, loses his mother in a fire.  It was my way of coming to terms with my friend's loss.

3. What was your first date with your significant other?
We met at a concert half-way between our two houses. She recognized the friend I'd come with, and came over to say hello. The two of us hit it off, and we ended up going to dinner at a very nice restaurant in Cambridge, The Harvest. It's since closed.

I came home and cried my eyes out because I was sure I'd never see her again.

That was about 20 years ago. So much for my powers of prognostication.
