Welcome Author Karenna Colcroft

After six-months of self-imposed dating exile, Lissa is ready to go out again. She isn't looking for a date, just a one-night fling with the hottest man she can find. She finds him in Ross, a guy who takes control and orders Lissa into one of her wildest fantasies. But after asking her to spend the night with him, Ross disappears. When Lissa sees him again the following night, he wants another chance to do what they did last night.

Welcome to Labelle Books Karenna Colcroft. What We Did Last Night sounds like one hot read. I love that sexy cover. :) Can you tell us how long you've been an author?

Karenna: I guess that depends on how you define "author". I've been writing stories since I was five, but I wasn't published for the first time until 2002. So I've been writing for thirty-six years, but I've only been published for nine. My first romance was published in March 2009, so it's only been about two and a half years for that.

That's awesome! You're clearly very talented and have been at it for a long time. What's your favorite genre?

Karenna: To read or to write? To read, I would say urban fantasy/ paranormal. That's actually my favorite to write as well, but most of my romances tend to be contemporary.

What is the biggest surprise you've discovered about the writing process?

Karenna: How much work is involved after publication! I never realized how much went into promotion until I actually had to promote things.

LOL, I think that was one of mine too. Can you tell us about one of your current works in progress?

Karenna: I just finished an urban fantasy romance about a werewolf pack Beta (Second in command) who finds his mate-and she turns out to be human.

That sounds like another book I'd love to read :) On to the fun questions:
If you had a warning label what would it be?

Karenna: Caution: If you speak to this person, you may end up in a story.

*smiles* And, if you had the chance to meet one of your characters privately, who would it be and what would you do?
Karenna: Kyle Slidell, the narrator/hero of my M/M series Real Werewolves Don't Eat Meat. We would probably just walk around Boston, and almost certainly visit Dunkin Donuts for coffee or hot choclate.

Excerpt:

He led Lissa to the glass elevator in the center of the lobby. As they ascended to their floor Lissa looked around. Breakfast in this place would definitely be something but she doubted she and Ross would be here that long. Even if they did end up spending the entire night he would probably be in a hurry to leave in the morning.
She might be as well, depending on what occured in the meantime.
Their room sat directly across the plushy carpeted corridor from the elevator. Ross unlocked the room and pushed open the door to reveal a room papered in textured cream with burgundy carpet even thicker than that in the corridor. Most of the room wasn't visible from the door. A short hallway with a door to the left opening into the bathroom separated them from the rest of the room.
"After you." Ross said, gesturing grandly.
Lissa entered, eyes wide. She'd never been in a room like this and couldn't believe Ross had paid for such luxury just to get laid. She touched the wallpaper and looked toward the floor-to-ceiling window at the far end of the room "This is amazing."
"It sure is." Ross flipped on the lights and let the door swing shut behind him.
Abruptly he pinned Lissa against the wall and held her arms above her head. She caught her breath, unsure for a moment whether he meant to hurt her.
"You look scared." He growled. "What do you think I'm going to do to you? After all, you did tell me to do anything I wanted."
"I did," she agreed, trying to breathe evenly to slow her pounding heart. Even with the fear, his forcefulness sent flames through her. If he was as intense in bed as standing here this would definitely be an amazing night.
"Then why do you look so frightened?" He nuzzled her neck just below her ear. "I'm not going to hurt you. Believe me, nothing we do tonight is going to hurt."
"That-that's good to know," she stammered.
He let her go and studied her. For a few seconds she kept her arms where he'd left them. Then she realized nothing was making her hold them there and lowered them to her sides.
"Shy now that we're here?" He asked. "You shouldn't be. I can see you a lot better now. You're beautiful. Sexy as hell."
