Tamar Steele’s star is on the rise. Her relationship with boyfriend Jason Bray is blossoming, as is her bond with her spirit guide, the ghost of Jason’s brother Matt, who has been training her in mediumship. And, newly installed as the medium for her crew of paranormal investigators, she is already receiving press attention, which brings her to the notice of Scare Seekers – a paranormal entertainment show keen to film an episode with Tamar’s team.

But when teammate Hana is violently possessed, filming is thrown into disarray. The dark spirit seems to disappear at first, but when a frenzied Hana attacks Tamar on the drive home, Tamar realises that her mediumistic abilities may not be strong enough to fight the demon.

Until one day Tamar discovers her powers are increased by having sex on haunted ground, and finds that maybe she and Jason can save Hana, their team’s reputation, and themselves…

Hi. Welcome to All I Want and More. We’re glad to have you here.

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m an erotic romance writer living in Yorkshire with my husband and two extremely bratty cats.

In this book, who was your favorite character to write and why?

Tamar is a great character to write. She’s still discovering her mediumship ability and so it’s fun to explore that with her.

What 3 words would you use to describe your main characters?

Determined, open-minded and dreamy.

Can you tell us a little bit about this book?

Tamar Steele is still getting used to her role as the “singing medium” for her paranormal investigative team, so when TV show Scare Seekers chooses to feature them in an episode, she forces herself to go along with it for the publicity. But a seance goes wrong, leaving her teammate Hana possessed and Tamar has to find a new way to increase her mediumship power to save her…

How do you go about picking character names? Do you have to get them just right and make sure they fit with the characters personality? 

Oh yes. Especially when it’s a hero or heroine – if it’s the wrong name I just can’t write them properly. Sometimes names will just suggest themselves but other times I have to go through dozens before I find one that fits.

We’re cover hussies..What was your first impression of this cover?

I loved it. It’s always good when your heroine is given a face that works for her!

What does writing mean to you?

It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do, so it’s everything to me. I couldn’t do without it.

What are you currently working on?

I’m working on a new series which will hopefully be out next year, and am doing edits for a novella called “In the Halls of the Mountain Troll” about a team of Norwegian trollhunters – which is a bit of a departure for me!

Quickie Time

Secret talent? I used to be a trained classical singer, although I’m out of practise.

excerptGod, he was good at this. She could already feel relaxation flowing through her body, followed by tingles of excitement as his tongue went to work, tormenting every sensitive spot. Her pleasure mounted, spiralling in her gut as she pushed her hips forward, aching for more movement, harder, faster, but Jason was still goingslowly and her breath raced in anticipation of the climax to come.

Tamar moaned, lacing her fingers into Jason’s hair as he pressed soft kisses to her pussy, alternating with tender licks until she could barely stand it. Jason slid his fingers inside her, grazing her sweet spot over and over again—


Jason’s lips tightened around her clit, sucking, and Tamar threw back her head and screamed as the pleasure hit her.

Through the waves of ecstasy, she heard a loud pop from above her, followed by a sprinkling sensation on her skin.

“What the fuck?” she heard Jason say, and Tamar opened her eyes. Her chest and stomach were covered with shards of glass. Jason was sitting back on his ankles, staring up in irritated confusion as he brushed fragments out of his hair.

At least, it looked like he was. The room was in almost complete darkness, broken only by the bedside lamp and the street light outside the window.

“Did the light bulb blow?”

“I think it shattered.”


Together they got off the bed to sweep up the pieces of broken bulb, Tamar shaking her head in bemusement.

Now that had never happened before.

What did that mean?
