Zoe Forward His Witch to Keep

Author Zoe Forward: What Inspires Me?

I’m so excited to have a guest post from author, Zoe Forward. Zoe has just released His Witch to Keep, a paranormal romance. This is her second book in the Keepers of the Veil series. 

First, let’s talk about the book! Here’s the summary.

Wanting her was one thing. Keeping her was another…

Serenity Danssaert was already in way over her head. Not even her MI6 training or her powers as one of the seven Pleiades witches is going to save her sister. Then Alexi Jovec shows up. A secret operative working for unknown forces, he’s impossibly sexy and dangerous…and the guy who bailed on Serenity after a red-hot, racy night.

So bonding to him as her destined—the One—is so very wrong.

While Alexi’s need to own Serenity—body, soul, and beyond—is nearly unbearable, it’s also forbidden. He’s the last man who could ever be her destined. Besides, Hades’s right-hand man cannot bond with a chosen Pleiades witch. He may be the one man who can protect her, but she can never be his to keep.

Ohhh…there’s a lot I like about this one!  

Danger, intrigue, adventure, magic, smexy times and when any summary says, “FORBIDDEN” I’m definitely hooked.  Also in Zoe’s favor? She found inspiration in a photo of Benedict Cumberbatch. One hundred points awarded to Zoe for that one. #TeamCumberbatch

Here’s Zoe Forward…

I’m so thrilled to be visiting Booknista today!

Have you ever been inspired by a single picture? Something you saw and it clicked? For me, I’d love to say it was a beautiful gallery painting or a breathtaking piece of architecture, but it wasn’t. It was this image of Bennedict Cumberbatch. No, I wasn’t cyber stalking his fan pages. But I will admit to reading some esoteric facts about the Star Trek Into Darkness movie, because I’m an unabashed super fan. I ran across this picture while writing the first novel in my Keepers of the Veil paranormal romance series. This was him. This was Alexi Jovec personified – super hot-ty hot and mysterious with a twist of internal conflict. He’s not exactly good, but also not quite pure evil He’s both while struggling to do what he thinks is right. Perfect.

The entire second book came from the angsty, troubled cast pic.

Have you ever been inspired by a single picture?

I’d love to know that, too.

Tell us in the comments. For me the inspiring pictures are of landscapes, places with very different textures, architecture and climates. They remind me of worlds yet to be found, places I want to see and touch. Castles, mountains, remote islands, huge expansive fields of wild flowers. That’s what gets me dreaming.
