Welcome to the Indie Author Feature with Coffee Time Romance and More. This month, we’re showcasing Lisa Carlisle, USA Today Bestselling Author of Romance and Suspense. Today, Lisa shares insight into her novel, Dark Muse.
It takes time before Gina Meiro warms up to people and her shyness is often misunderstood. She hasn’t had to worry about meeting new people at a remote art colony until a new resident arrives—a rock guitarist more suited for a billboard. Her carefree days of painting at the medieval-styled castle on a remote New England island are shattered when she stumbles right into his welcome gathering.
After a falling out with his band, Dante Riani wants nothing more at Les Beaux Arts on DeRoche Island than solitude to work on new songs. When a shy young painter asks to paint him at sunset, he’s tempted by the opportunity to be alone with her.
Someone at the colony claims to know what Dante is and asks for his help. Dante fears his plans are coming undone, especially as grows more drawn to Gina. Her scent and vulnerability are too difficult to resist. But he must stay away from her—she would never understand his secret.
A note from the author
Hi, I’m Lisa Carlisle, and I’m here to share one of the books in my series, Chateau Seductions. I started this series over a year ago with a novella called Dark Velvet after having the idea of an art colony set at a remote island castle setting. It has a gothic feel, but is set in modern times. Also, if you’ve ready any of my other books, you’ll know how I love to write about paranormal characters, especially gargoyles!
I’m thrilled to say that I just released the third part of the trilogy, Dark Stranger, on April 21st. All the main characters in this series come together so you can get a glimpse into how everyone’s story is turning out.
I thought I was finished, but….
Readers have written to me to tell me how much they love Antoine, one of the characters who makes an appearance in each book. Since he has such an amazing background, I wrote a short story from his point of view leading up to when he creates the art colony at the chateau. The first draft is done and in the hands of my critique partners now so it will be out in the near future.
