Kiss and Tell Blog Tour: Nina Pierce

This 9 day, 9 author virtual book tour is presented by Bewitching Book Tours.

Welcome to The Wormhole and my day on the tour!
It is my great pleasure to feature Nina Pierce!

Award-winning romance author, Nina Pierce, grew up in a house full of readers. So becoming enamored with books was only natural. She discovered romance stories in her early teens, falling hopelessly in love with knights in shining armor and the damsels who saved them.

Eventually, reading about alpha males and the journey to find their happy-ever-after endings wasn’t enough. She needed to pen her own stories of fated loves and soul mates. Nina’s discovered the passionate side of romance with her sexy stories. For her, it’s all about the sweet scent of seduction mixed with the heart warming aroma of romance.

Nina resides in southern New England with her high school sweetheart and soul mate of twenty-seven years, their three grown children and several very spoiled cats who consider her “staff”.


Guest post from Nina Pierce:

I Just Can’t Let Go
Okay, I’m going to admit it … I’m a sloooow writer. Stories don’t just fly from my fingertips. Characters don’t scream their dialogue in my head. I rip every word from my brain, painstakingly getting the scenes on paper. I bribe my muse to stay focused while we wrangle another elusive plot point into submission. To top it off, I’m a pantzer. I’ve tried plotting books, but it just doesn’t work for me. This means it can take a couple of false starts before I understand where my characters intend to go and can interpret exactly what they intend to do when they get there.

By the time I finish a book from the very first action scene to the final “happy-ever-after” my characters have kept me up late, caused me to burn dinner and they always, without any exception, ruin a relaxing shower. But in the months it takes me to write a story we’ve spent so much intimate time together I just can’t seem to let them go. I’ve fallen in love with them even as they’ve fallen in love with each other.

I sit down at the beginning of every book and explain to my new characters that they get only one story. They are not, under any circumstances, allowed to drag me into something that requires more than one book. *sigh* But I’ve never been any good at the tough love thing. Every book I’ve written, with the exception of one novella has prodded me to find the forever loves for the secondary characters and voila! a series is born.

So it shouldn’t have surprised me when three sisters showed up with my muse one day and not only told me they wanted to each be featured in a story, but they wanted their stories to all meld together with a mystery that isn’t complete until the final book is finished.


A series with each book standing alone and yet … a story that arcs through all of them? Wow! I knew it was going to be a challenge, but these characters wouldn’t let me walk away. The result (besides many sleepless nights) is The Tilling Passions Series.

The second book in this sexy romantic suspense series, DECEIVE HER WITH DESIRE, is now available in most digital formats.

Deceive Her with Desire by Nina Pierce
A woman determined to protect her heart…
Landscaping in DelmontMaine hasn’t been DEIRDRE TILLING’s only passion. Up until two months ago, it had included a live-in lover. Jilted for the third time in as many years, Deirdre’s decided to give up on love. But a one night stand with a dark haired stranger she met at her new employer’s party may very well thrust her into a world filled with danger and dark secrets.
 An agent hell bent on proving himself…
DEA agent, AYDEN SCOTT, has a lot to prove after a disastrous drug bust in Miami three years earlier that left a member of his team dead. Working undercover as lead investigator, he’s determined to bring down an elusive drug cartel smuggling heroin into central Maine. He’ll use any means necessary to complete his objective, including sleeping with the suspected drug Lord’s landscaper, Deirdre. He just hadn’t expected the feisty redhead to be so much more than long legs and dangerous curves.
One night that will change their lives forever…
 Deirdre and Ayden both thought one sexually explosive romp in the sack would be the end of their relationship. But Deirdre’s arrest for heroin possession and her father’s near-fatal heart attack prompts Ayden to confess his true identity. When Deirdre is kidnapped by the drug cartel and used as a pawn, Ayden is forced to choose between his heart and his mission. The question is…who will survive his decision?

Hi Nina. It might be frustrating that your characters don't take you seriously when you explain to them it's only one story per couple, but I can tell you that this reader is always rooting for a series to develope.

Kathryn - I have to admit, I fall in love with my characters even as they're falling in love with one another. So writing a series works out all the way around.
