Does he have his claws in her for good? Or is she just yanking his tail?

Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met, in the family business they’ve known nothing about, Amazons Inc. If that isn’t bad enough, she runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job.

Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn't be told of his Other identity. Now, Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse, either, because Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

Claws, love bites and handcuffs - OH MY!
Thanks, ladies! Talk Supe feels so special today because of this interview! Woot!

Big Bad Bite is here!!! So let's cheat on the blurb a little bit and tell us what to expect from WALK ON THE STRIPED SIDE.

JESSIE LANE: There's a lot going on in WALK ON THE STRIPED SIDE. Gage and his group are still trying to figure out the best way to go into Germany and rescue Marcus Corvus, the wolf Alpha being kept comatose and hostage from his rogue wolves. Elena piles more problems onto Gage's plate when she waltzes back into his life to inform him of her newly discovered Amazonian heritage and that she now works for the family investigative business, Amazons Inc. Elena is looking for Gage's sister Lulu because murder charges have been brought against her by the Ninth Circle Council, which is the ruling demon council in the Other Community. Gage's biggest problem in this book is the fact that his mate, Elena, won't give him the time of day. He broke her heart two years ago and now he's manning up to admit he was wrong and try and win her back. Needless to say Elena doesn't make that easy for him.

Sounds like a paaarrrtteeeyy!! Elena is an Amazon, which is sooo cool! I'm sure she'll be fierce and difficult. Is she going all Wonder Woman on us or is she more like the man hating archetype especially since Gage already broke her heart in the past?

JESSIE LANE: Elena and her sisters represent my vision of the modern day Amazon. Strong enough to fight in a man's world but feminine enough to admit they want someone to love them for who they are. You can say that they're their own sort of Wonder Women. 

Going back to Gage, the dude sounds like he had a d-bag moment and I can tell that Gage Ivanov has a lot on his plate. When the blurb calls you stupid, you know it won't be easy. What are his other redeeming qualities?

JESSIE LANE: I love Gage. I know authors shouldn't have favorites, but Gage is mine. I adore him. He's the epitome of the alpha male who's determined to get his woman no matter what he has to do. Including kidnapping and handcuffs. But underneath Gage's gruff exterior is a man with an intense love and need for his woman. He'd do anything for her... except let her walk away from him again. He's sexy, he's smart and loves Elena with every fiber of his being.

And you know we LOVE men like Gage! For those unfamiliar with the series, what is Big Bad Bite the series about?

JESSIE LANE: The Big Bad Bite Series focuses on the supernatural Other community that the humans are oblivious about. Each book features a different couple, but as a group of friends they face different obstacles together such as a threat of a rogue wolf pack that wants to expose Others to the world at large and take over. There's also a wee bit of an issue about the heroine of WALK ON HE STRIPED SIDE who is an Amazon working for her families investigate business hired to apprehend and hand over the hero's sister on the charges of murder.

Twitter style, sell WALK ON THE STRIPED SIDE to the readers.

JESSIE LANE: Claws, love bites and handcuffs - OH MY! #WalkOnTheStripedSide


One stubborn Amazon + one determined tiger = smexy paranormal romance with fun! #WalkOnTheStripedSide

Very creative. All I can think of is THIS IS FUN GUYS! Ha! Which explains why I'm a blogger and you guys are writers. Thanks for the gossip, Jessie Lane!

Elena started bucking in his hold, trying to force him to drop her. Silly human. As if she could force him to do anything. When he tightened his grip on her to keep her secure against him and quickened his steps towards the hallway that led to his bedroom, her frustration gave way to an explosion of angry words.

“You mother fuckin’, ball lickin’, hairball coughin’, oversized alley cat, douche juicin’, bastard!”

“Douche juicin’? That doesn’t sound very appealing. I hear there are creams for that if you need them, babe.” Gage crossed the threshold to his bedroom and walked over to the corner where he had his large, king-sized bed against the wall. He set his wiggling woman on the edge of the bed and then turned her body so that she faced him.

Quick as lightening, Elena brought her knee up, trying her best to land a blow to his nuts. He was prepared for the move, though, so he blocked the strike and then used his body to pin hers to the bed.

Frustrated, Elena spat out between her teeth, “Do they have a cream to cure Asshatism? I could finally get rid of you then.”

Crystal and Melissa often live half their lives with their heads in the clouds dreaming of alpha military hunks, werewolves and kick ass heroines crazy enough to chase after creatures that they unquestionably should know better than to chase.Their first YA novel, The Burning Star, was released in May 2012. Big Bad Bite is their second novel, but their first adult paranormal romance. They are now working on their next two novels, Walk On The Striped Side and Secret Maneuvers. With these projects underway, they are looking forward to showing the rest of the world their crazy stories, heroes and heroines that often plague their minds until written, and hope you will join them on their journey!
