"Thank you so much for allowing me to visit your blog today Patricia. 
I have loved following you and discovering more about Antiserum!"
It's incredible when you get to meet such talented authors like Patricia,
and I was so excited to stop by and take over her site for the day.  Patricia
and I met on twitter, and I have to tell you I'm very impressed with how
well she's done for herself!

For those of you that don't know
me, I'm Michelle Hughes, one of
the owners of Tears of Crimson. 
Originally we were known as the
New Orleans Vampire bar, but
over the last year we've expanded
our company to include a bookstore
and added a new partner, Karl Jones
from the UK.

I started pretty much the same way that Patricia did, writing the first Tears
of Crimson book, and I honestly hadn't thought about writing anything other
than the vampire series. After the second Tears book, an idea came to me.  I
loved my vampires, and still do, but I had so many more stories that filled my
mind and wanted to share those with my readers as well.

Romance has always been my favorite genre, and I started reading Harlequin
romances as a young girl. I remember vividly sneaking my Granny's books into
the bathroom, the little set of four that you could get a subscription for each
month.  At eight years old, most of my friends were reading little story books, I
was falling in love with incredible guys from a romance novel.  That just stayed
with me over the years.  I wrote short stories as I grew into my teenage years,
but my real love at that time was music.

 I put the writing aside when I was invited to come sing at the Midnight
Jamboree in Nashville with the late Justin Tubbs (for those of you too
young to remember, he was the son of the late Ernest Tubbs, a great
country music legend).  That appearance started my music career off
and I would go on to perform with a televised showcase called Fast Track
To Fame.  Back in those days I was simply known as Regina Michelle, and
I traveled to different nightclubs and fairs, singing and hosting shows.  I
even met Billy Ray Cyrus before he wrote Achy Breaky Heart, and performed
for Exile. 

When I started my family, I knew that a life on the road wasn't what I wanted
to give to them.  So I gave up the music career, became a Respiratory Therapist,
and wrote on the side.  It took years to get the writing career off the ground, but
it's continued to grow and I've grown with it.  Life can take you on some pretty
amazing rides, and I've been very fortunate to live a life that I've loved and also
have a great family that supported me.

I hope you'll stop in at Tears of Crimson and find out more about me and the
projects I'm working on now. Thanks so much for allowing me the opportunity
to share a little bit about my life with you!


One look at Rhett and all previous thoughts went straight to hell. He made
an unbelievable offer to her: “Give me 10 nights and I’ll show you pleasure
beyond your wildest dreams.”

Was this an invitation to paradise or would his request destroy her mind, body
and soul?

From virgin to courtesan in 10 nights? Was Leah even willing to consider it?

In a game of cat and mouse in which 10 nights, 10 choices and 10 fantasies
could change everything, who would declare victory?


What reviewers are saying about 10

This makes Fifty Shades read like a
Disney story! (Dawn)


"OMG I couldn't put my kindle down. 10 nights IS what I imagine BDSM
to be. And the end of the book I didn't want it to end."  (Kami)

"As much as I liked Fifty Shades, this story makes Christian and
Ana's relationship seem almost....vanilla, if you will. Very intense,
very gripping" (Nancy)

"Those ten nights were some of the most erotic situations I've ever
read about and I admit I was shocked at how in-depth those scenes
were." (Susan)

Author Comments:  10 Nights is a book that goes deeper down the rabbit
hole, if you will, concerning the lifestyle of BDSM. This book was written to
garner strong emotional responses from the readers and there's very little
sugar coating involved.  Rhett Hammond is the ultimate alpha male and his
relationship with Leah is often overwhelming both physically and emotionally. 
The premise was to take a completely uninitiated woman, not only in the lifestyle
but in sexuality in general, and expose her to his world at a pace that will overwhelm
her senses.  

Rhett gives Leah a crash course in passion with ten nights of some of the most
popular fantasies that women have.  With those nights is his Dominant nature
that combines to make them some of the most memorable scenes.  Passion,
Drama, and erotic romance it's not just a promotional statement, it's what 10
Nights encompasses.
