Spotlight on Romance: HEA All the Way - Guest post by Vivian Arend + Giveaway

The author I welcome today needs no introduction, Vivian Arend is a multi-faceted author who writes contemporary romances, paranormal romances and even erotic romances. The welcome note on Vivian's website says: "The tagline says Romance, Hot and Wild, and that’s just what you’ll find here. Vivian writes both contemporary and paranormal romance, and there’s plenty of story lengths and heat levels to choose from." (as you will see below when you take a look at her backlist). And what I find the most amazing is that Vivian wrote all these books since spring 2008! Talk about prolific! So read on to see what made Vivian write romances, check out her website (and books) and scroll down for your chance to win one of her novels. :-)

Wolf Signs: Granite Lake Wolves, Book 1I write romance books. It’s not what I expected, or longed to do while I was growing up. In fact, I rarely read romance, although I read sci-fi, fantasy, YA—everything and anything I could get my hands on. When I first got published in 2009, someone teasingly asked why I ended up here, in Romancialand. I was as puzzled as them--and then it hit.

It’s the HEA. I can’t stand a book without a happily ever after. Even when I read fantasy, the quest has to finish successfully. In a mystery, the bad guy has to be caught and the mystery solved. And if there was ever even a hint of interest between them—the boy has got to get his girl.

Falling, FreestyleNow it all makes sense. While I write both contemporary and paranormal, which allows me to play with people learning to fall in love both with and without magical assistance, in the end, it comes down to the end. Do they finish happy? In my books, they always do.

That’s a promise.
