I was born in Fort Knox, Kentucky but I have lived in Las Cruces, New Mexico for over 30 years. I’m an animal lover, I have two sons that are the light of my life. In April 2015 I came to Quebec Canada with JP, canoeing, snowmobiling, four wheeling, and sitting with my coffee writing are my new adventures and right now I am loving every minute of it. I miss my mountains, but have discovered so much more and have found new ways to make my writing even more creative than ever.
Thank you, Cree, for hosting me
today. I am very excited to be sharing
with you all the first in my Shifters of Freedom Springs series, The Wolf and his Earth Goddess. This book released on May 20 with Siren
Publishing. If your readers would like

would you do if you featured in a prophecy that if left unsolved meant the end
of the world? Casey Rika went
camping! Despite being a powerful
Elemental, she got shot twice, left for dead in the middle of the forest and
ended up in the arms of the wolf from her dreams.
the Earth Elemental determined by birth, and chosen by a goddess, Casey had
until the first day of summer to solve her part of the prophecy, and start the
journey to save a goddess caught in the Otherworld, and defeat a God. How hard could that be?
Winters rescue mission into the national park where he worked as a ranger,
became personal as soon as he realized it was his mate he was rescuing. Now, Micah really only had one goal – help
his mate solve the prophecy and keep her alive.
“How did you know I was your mate?” Micah asked
suddenly, and Casey smiled. She had been wondering when this was going to come
“Well, because of- let’s just say circumstances in
my life beyond my control, I have a very strong interest in the super
natural. I have met with, and spoke to a
lot of shifter communities and leaders over the years. I met the Sharman for one of the northern
wolf packs who told me I was the mate to a wolf, and that he would come for me
when I was in danger. He told me that I would recognize you immediately and
would feel the mating bond form and I did.”
Casey smiled shyly as Micah’s eyes softened as he
looked at her. She had left out a few
other indications like the fact that she had dreamed about him for years, but
if he didn’t remember those dreams then perhaps the Fates had only meant them
“I learnt a lot from each and every person I spoke
with, and the fact that for wolf shifters you won’t fully merge with your inner
wolf spirit until you actually scent your mate was something I found
beautiful.” Casey was quiet for a moment as she struggled to but her thoughts
“That moment when you scent your mate and everything
aligns within you, it’s like the coming together of heart, body and soul and it
is so beautiful to me. What was it like for you?”
Micah smiled. “It was exactly how my dad described
it to me and my brothers. I scented you
and felt this huge swell of power and strength and it dropped me to my
knees. I had to fight my wolf for
control for a moment, the merge shook the both of us I think, but I managed to
force the change back to human. “
“Can he force you to change form?”
“Before meeting you, there was always the
possibility of that. He’s a strong wolf,
and quite stubborn. They need to be
allowed to exercise and take control in order to cede control at other times if
that makes sense. It is a privilege and
an honor to have a wolf spirit, and he and I will work as one to protect you
from now on.”
“I’m not quite sure what we do now?” she asked
after a moment.
“Yeah, you and me both, sweetheart.” Micah cleaned
up their breakfast and then moved to sit facing her on the bed. “I wasn’t
exactly looking for a mate, Casey.”
Casey felt her heart shudder at a sudden thought.
“Oh God, do you have a girlfriend?” Jealousy bloomed through her body with a
speed that surprised her.
Micah grinned, the bastard. “No, I don’t, baby. But
I do like that jealous streak you have going there. Makes my dick hard.” If he
expected her to blush and get all embarrassed because he used the word dick,
then he was tripping. And he had never met a woman who wrote erotic romances
for a living.
“Well, that’s good to know, and I can assure you
that there are a lot of things I can do that will make your dick hard.” She
winked at him when his jaw dropped open a little. “What? Did you think I’ve
never seen a hard dick before or to that point, never even touched one?” This
time it was his eyes that sparked with jealousy, and she liked it too. A lot.
“Yeah, new rule. No more talking about other dicks
you’ve seen and certainly none that you’ve touched, deal?” Grinning, she
nodded. Then his eyes lowered to her lips. His eyes darkened when she wet her
suddenly extremely dry lips. He made a low growling noise that had her creaming
herself. Hot damn, he was one hot shifter. His eyes suddenly changed from steel
gray to pale blue, telling her that his wolf was near the surface.
He wrapped his hand around the nape of her neck,
pulled her into him, and then he just devoured her. She had no other word for
it—one minute she was in control of herself and then he simply took over,
leaning up and over her bending her to his will. He thrust his tongue into her mouth,
gliding it over hers, twining them together, and when she sucked on his tongue,
he growled. Then he sucked her bottom lip into his mouth.
Pulling away, she took a moment to get her
equilibrium back before she opened her eyes. When she did, she saw him smiling
gently at her. When she smiled back, he stroked his fingers over her cheek.
“When you get the all clear to leave, would you come home with me?” His tone
was hesitant, as if fearing her rejection. Silly wolf, did he not own a mirror?
“I think that would a really good idea.” She
watched a smile spread across his face, one that matched her own. Then she
reached up, mirrored his move from moments before, and pulled him down for
Casey mewled and Micah felt her start to tremble. Rotating his hand
so that his palm almost cupped her, his fingers found the bumpy ridge inside
her that was going to blow her mind. As her trembling started to grow, he
swirled his tongue around her clit and pulled it into his mouth. Just as she
started to convulse, he fucked her hard with his fingers, sliding them high up
into her against the sweet spot that would have her coming hard. And come hard
“Fuuuuucccckkkk!” Her scream echoed through his room and he growled
as cream gushed from her pussy. She had released so much he had to swallow
repeatedly. Fucking ambrosia. If he had his way, he would do this every damn
day for the rest of his fucking life! Not leaving her through the intense
orgasm, he licked and slowly brought her down from the heights he had driven
He felt her slump forward and he helped her to slide down his body
so that she was straddling his lap and her head was buried in his neck. She was
breathing hard and little shocks of pleasure still racked her body. Micah had
pleasured her well and he felt invincible. He would have enjoyed it more if he
wasn’t harder than he had ever been in his life and needing to be buried inside
of her more he had needed anything else in his life.
Casey suddenly groaned and pulled back to look at him. He gently
drew the long strands of her long dark hair over her shoulders. Damn she made
his heart ache. Her green eyes sparkled and her grin was sleepy, satisfied, and
contented as hell. “Jesus, Micah, you sure know how to treat a woman!” She
leaned forward and sucked his bottom lip into her mouth, nibbling on it. “But I
need something more. Fuck me, Micah, please?” She started nibbling on his
earlobe and he felt his eyes roll back into his head.
“Christ, Casey! You keep doing that and I’m gonna fuck you here on
the floor.” Micah moaned as she bit into the fleshy part of his shoulder. The
placement not lost on him. When he eventually claimed her, that would be the
spot on her shoulder he’d sink his teeth into and make her his. She surprised
the hell out of him then by leveraging herself up so she could grasp his cock
in her hand, and she guided him into her body. The warm, wet heat of her pussy
fit him like a glove, and just as she was about to take all of him, she swiveled
her hips, making him jerk.
“Fuck, baby, you fit me so damn well. Your pussy is soft and wet
around my dick.” He felt her pussy ripple around him and he threw his head back
with a shout. “Oh yeah, do that again.” She leaned back, gripping his shoulders
for leverage, and then ground against his hips while massaging him from the
inside. He growled and groaned as she gave him the hottest damn lap dance in
history, all while he knelt on the floor of his bedroom.
A sudden thought occurred to him and had him freezing. “Casey baby,
not that I wouldn’t love to see you swollen with my child, but are you on birth
She gave him a smile as she bit her lip, nodded, and then started
moving harder against him. Sooner than he would have liked, she had him hovering
near madness, and he knew his eyes would be flashing blue. Growling, he lifted
up to kneel and Casey gasped in his ear as she wrapped her long sleek legs
around his waist and held on. He knew he wouldn’t be able to make it up onto
the bed, so he simply rolled and laid her down on the bedroom rug, still buried
balls deep inside her. He pulled her legs higher up his hips, grabbed her arms,
and put them up over her head with her wrists clasped in one of his hands.
He breathed deep, taking the smell of their arousal and the earthy
smell of sex into his lungs. He locked gazes with her and then slammed his hips
into her, making her body bounce and her eyes widen. “Can you handle it, baby?”
he asked, holding himself back with all the strength he had in his body. His
muscles were locked so damn tight he thought they might actually snap. If she
said she needed slow, he didn’t know what the hell he would do.
Then she gave him a smile so sexy, so damn wicked he cursed. “Handle
it? Baby, I can handle anything you can dish out, and more. Now, fuck me hard!
Take me like you mean it.” And that was it. The tight hold he had on his
control snapped and he started to slam his hips into hers, driving pleasure
into every cell of his body as she lifted her hips to meet every one of his
A: I love writing
about shifters, and alphas. The
complexity to their personalities and the attitudes you can create with them
are really intriguing. You add into
strong heroines who have the ability to manipulate the natural elements and
have to solve a prophecy in order to save the world and you have the type of
book I love to read and write.
Q: Was if fun including little shout outs to New
Zealand in this book?
A:Definitely. I am very proud to be from New Zealand and we
have such a rich and diverse culture that being able to plant little kiwi-isms
and shout outs to New Zealand is so much fun.
Casey’s sister Ariana, who we learn a little bit about in this book, is
from New Zealand and is of Maori heritage, so I am looking forward to sharing
more aspects of this culture with you all in the following books of this
Q. Does each part of the prophecy give us a
little insight into what the other elementals might face and a short hint into
A. Hmmmm, how to
answer this question. Yes they do, but
not entirely. Each of the Elementals
need to complete their individual prophecy journey to see what role they play
in freeing Olwen. But each one also has
a very personal journey that needs to be completed at the same time. There will be tears, blood shed and a whole
heap of having to lend a hand to help a friend in need and that is a part of
this series that I love writing.
Q. What are you working on at the moment?
A. Grey River has so
many stories to tell, and I am currently working on Xanthe’s story. Xanthe has a lot going on in her life at the
moment and when her past crashes into her present… well, let’s just say shit
gets real!! I am also working on book
three of this series and boy oh boy!
There are some scenes in this book that I am finding very hard to write,
characters I love in so much danger makes Maia a very nervous author!
Q. Do you have anything to say to your current
readers or to those that haven’t yet read you work?
A. Thank you to all my
readers who are enjoying the Grey River series.
I do hope you will give the Shifters of Freedom Springs a try. All of the characters are looking forward to
taking you on their journey to save the world and hope you’ll go along for the
ride. It is always a treat for me to
hear from my readers so please reach out with a question or a query if you
would like and I look forward to sharing more stories with you!
Maia Dylan lives, loves and works in
beautiful New Zealand. She married her
best friend and they have two adorable, but stubborn children who obviously
take after their father.
Maia’s career has featured a lot of
travel, and she has filled her time at airports and in the air with books,
books and more books. Her love of erotic
paranormal romance has seen her amass a huge library. She has been an avid reader and lover of ménage
romances since she read her first book in this genre about three years ago.
In January of this year, Maia
submitted her first ever manuscript to Siren Publishing. She wasn’t at all confident that it would be
accepted and in fact she was expecting a nicely worded email with a resounding
no! Much to her surprise less than two
weeks later she had an acceptance and a signed contract in hand. Since then she hasn’t looked back and
currently has three books in her Grey
River series set for publication.
Outside of writing, Maia loves to
eat, so she loves to cook! Her herb
garden is legendary, but she still has issues getting tomatoes to grow. She’s been a performer for years, and has
even sung on international stages, she would love to own a classic Ford Mustang
one day and of course have the opportunity to race it on a race track without
fear of a speeding ticket.
Although ultimately her dream is to
be able to write full time on a sandy beach with a Mai Tai at hand, she is
quite happy to fit her writing in when she can.
As long as someone reads her books, gets a laugh and maybe come to love
her characters and much as she does, then she feels that she is living her
dreams no matter what!
