Author Spotlight with Cameron Allie
We are pleased to have Cameron Allie with us today on our Author Spotlight
(The Official One)
Romance author Cameron Allie grew up in a small town north of Toronto. As a child she loved stories, and after reading her first romance novel at age fifteen, her dreams of writing became singularly focused on the love story. She is currently living in Ontario with her husband, and with her cat, who is constantly trying to interrupt the writing process.
(The Fun One)
I love romance novels, and writing happily ever after stories. I love strong alphas and the capable women who are willing to risk getting involved with them. I write erotic romance, so with me you’re guaranteed that happily ever after, but on the way there things are going to get a little steamy. My writing has been described by two different editors as “warm and fuzzy” which maybe doesn’t go with erotic romance, but it seems to work for me!
I like to try to get a giggle out of my readers, but that said, I don’t shy away from tackling “tough topics”. In a few of my novels there may be some triggers for some people, on my website I try to specify if that’s the case.
Last year I discovered the M/M genre, and while for the most part I plan to stick to M/F stories, you’re going to start to see some M/M stuff popping up, two short stories will be out by the end of the year.
I have an incredibly supportive family, a wonderful husband, and a slightly crazy, slightly cuddly tabby named Darcy. I live in Canada, and rarely travel outside of my comfort zone, and I love thunderstorms (hate tornados though!).
Cameron is the Author of the Series Unexpected Changes. We are going to start with book one in the series. My Mistletoe Master
Nick has always wanted Amelia Fuller, his best friend’s little sister, but is he capable of overcoming a past that threatens to come between them?
Amelia Fuller has been in love with her older brother’s best friend for the better part of two decades. After working up the courage to finally tell him how she feels, he broke her heart.
Now, three years later, she’s home for the Christmas holidays and finds Nick’s feelings toward her suddenly changed. Nick doesn’t like to make the same mistake twice. When Amelia arrives home after a three-year absence, Nick Kelly decides he’s no longer going to hide the way he feels about her. His friendship with her brother and a past that left him feeling ashamed were the only things holding him back, but missing her for three long years has finally put things in perspective for Nick.
After Nick catches Amelia enjoying a little fetish pornography, he convinces her to agree to a hot fling, but much to Nick’s displeasure, she wants to keep their affair secret. Sneaking around and indulging in risky sexual play while staying at her parent’s home for the holidays won’t get Amelia everything she’s always dreamed of. Terrified to expose her heart once more, Amelia struggles to discover whether they can overcome their past.
Finally alone Amelia curled up in the family room, her laptop on the glass coffee table. Her dad had recently left for work and her mom had taken her brother Gabe to finish his Christmas shopping. Gabe always left it to the last few days. Amelia had only arrived home that morning; her exams had run late into the month, causing her to miss the beginning of the holidays. She’d only come home a few days ahead of her relatives who would soon be arriving at their custom-built country home for an extended stay.
Each year her grandparents, her aunt and uncle, and their three kids joined them for the holidays. Amelia’s parents had established themselves years ago as the annual Christmas hosts. Their parties simply couldn’t be beat, and the fact their extensive grounds could more than house all the family members certainly helped.
Taking this opportunity to enjoy the sanctuary of her childhood home before it became filled to the rafters, Amelia leaned over her laptop and opened the DVD driver to start the CD before she could change her mind. Sinking back into the couch, she waited for the videos to begin.
Amelia bit her lip in nervous anticipation as the first images flooded the screen. On the monitor, she watched as a man clad in black leather pants and nothing else restrained a woman. Slowly he raised one arm and then the other, locking them in place above her head. With her suspended from the ceiling, the man went about binding her feet to the floor. Naked and spread eagle, the woman moaned for the Dom. He denied her, slowly raking his hand over her exposed ass.
Growing wet between her legs, Amelia realized it had been too long since she’d had a man. Her body strained for more than her simple touch, but since she and her boyfriend had split two months ago, she’d just have to make do. To heighten her pleasure, she resisted her own needs, merely watching the two on the screen.
Amelia waited before she finally allowed herself to raise her own hand against her crotch. Pressing the palm of her hand against her jeans, she watched as the woman cried out in a mix of pain and pleasure as the man spanked her over and over. Moaning aloud with the video, Amelia abandoned her restraint, rocking against her hand. Her eyes drifted shut as she tugged on the button of her jeans, eager to touch herself, and begin working toward her climax.
A cough sounded behind her. She froze.
“What a great way to start my morning.”
No longer alone, Amelia’s eyes whipped open. She’d been so caught up in the moment, she never even heard him approach. Moving quickly, she slammed the lap top closed. With the sounds of the porno cut off, Amelia whirled around. Embarrassment crashed over her in waves as she found herself standing face to face with Nick, her brother’s best friend.
She could feel his eyes on her as she gathered up her computer, hugging it to her chest. She peeked at him from behind her makeshift shield. Although she hadn’t seen much of him in recent years, he could still take her breath away. His hair was sleep tousled, and he stood in nothing but his pajama bottoms. His broad chest was as bare as his feet, his expression dark and confused.
She realized he was waiting for an explanation. Instead, she went on the defensive. “What the hell are you doing here?”
He blinked. “I’m here for the holidays, like every year.”
Amelia pressed a hand to her forehead. Of course.
“My mom didn’t tell me you were here yet,” she said lamely as though that explained her odd behaviour.
At a standstill, they merely stared each other down. What he thought of her in that moment, she didn’t want to know. She could feel her cheeks heating and found herself wondering how long he had been standing there watching her.
Rounding the couch, she considered how many days she could hide in her room before her parents dragged her out. With any luck, she would manage to avoid Nick for a few days at the very least.
Aiming to shoulder her way past him so she could make a break for the stairs, Amelia put on a brave face and stalked toward him. His big body didn’t budge as she tried to manoeuvre around him.
Attempting to edge by, she mumbled, “You know, maybe we could just forget about this. You know, pretend I’m just not here yet.” She tried for a winning smile, but it faded when she saw humour light his eyes. Growing up, he and Gabe had teased her endlessly, and now she’d handed him ammunition.
“I don’t think so.” He took a step closer to her. She had to tilt her head to keep his gaze. Rascal that he was, he had the audacity to crack a smile at her discomfort. Her body was still primed for the orgasm she’d been denied. His nearness didn’t help matters. Masculinity and dominance rolled off him. People took notice when he entered a room. He wasn’t the broad and bulky type, but he was lean with a casual grace that made women think stamina.
“I can’t believe it. Never would I have thought Gabe’s little sister is such a perv.”
She narrowed her eyes, convinced he was merely trying to get a rise out of her. Well, she’d shock him right back. “It’s just a little kink.”
His smile deepened. It worried her.
“I trust you won’t tell anyone.” She tried to keep the pleading out of her tone.
“What’s it worth to you?”
This was the Nick she remembered from her childhood—rebel, tease, scoundrel. She gritted her teeth and insisted, “You won’t tell.”
“Well that depends on you, sweetheart.”
Her gaze dropped to his mouth. Amelia fought the surge of butterflies that soared at his softly spoken words. “What do you want?”

The Second book in the Series – Not His Type
Gabe Fuller never thought that the day would come when he actually desired Brooke Holter. She plagued him all throughout high school, but now that she’s determined to push him away, he realizes that she’s exactly what he’s looking for. Allowing Gabe to introduce her to new erotic experiences Brooke plans to take advantage of what’s been offered to her. She knows that using him as a distraction from her complicated life is only part of the reason why she keeps saying yes when she should be saying no. Unbeknownst to Gabe, Brooke plans on getting her fill and walking away before she can risk her heart, and her pride once more. Brooke doesn’t want to be viewed as the same dysfunctional girl she was in high school, which primarily means showing the world that she in no way needs Gabe Fuller. Gabe wants to break down the walls that Brooke has created to keep him out. Can they put fear and pride aside in order to make their relationship work?
She was playing with fire. Time to end the game before she got burned. Standing up, she stepped around him. “I’ve changed.”
He tracked her movements. When Brooke started backing toward the door, his fingers began drumming over the wooden frame of the desk. “Regardless. It’s still me you want.”
Her mind screamed no. Her heart, her body, cried yes.
“Call me when you’ve read the contract.” Brooke turned and sprinted for the door.
In heels, she wasn’t fast enough. She’d barely opened the door a few inches when Gabe’s palm slapped the surface, shutting it once more.
He edged closer.
She felt the coarse hair of his beard rub against her cheek before he dipped his face lower. With his nose in the crook of her neck, she heard his deep inhale and wondered how they’d even gotten here.
She circled around, aligning her back with the door. “What will it take to get you to read and sign the contract?”
“Don’t worry about the contract.”
“Then what do you want? What will it take for you to let me walk out of here?”
“I want you to come back to the motel. I want you to give it a try.” His brown eyes narrowed. “An honest try.”

Now for the Third Book in the Series – The Perfect Fix
Ed Moore and Emma Berk have the same goal: to forget the horrible things they witnessed while overseas. Together can they find a way to heal? Ed likes to keep his nose out of other people’s business. He works hard to be a good friend, son, brother, and employee. When he served in the military, he was the best soldier he could be. So when his former commanding officer asked for a favor, giving his recently released niece some guidance, Ed vows to help. But there’s a problem. She’s feisty, impulsive, and stubborn. And Ed can’t stop fantasizing about her.
Emma resents her uncle pushing his way into her life. She knows she’s capable of fixing her own problems and is sick to death of hearing about Uncle Cain’s star soldier. He refuses to shut up about how perfect Ed is. He has a good job, is a dependable man, and he did what Emma can’t seem to do: adjust flawlessly to civilian life. When she meets him, she’s frustrated to find out that he’s perfect on the outside, too. His hard body, smooth dark skin, and calm attitude draw her in. Anxious to find a flaw, she’s willing to look everywhere for one.
The longer Emma stays in his life, the closer she gets to unraveling his secrets. Can Ed continue to hide the truth about the darkness that consumes him? Or will he be forced to part with the sexy little spitfire that’s brought joy and happiness to his life?
It was heavy. And expensive. Roman numerals occupied the circumference, thick bronze arrows pointed to the time. It ticked steadily as she held it.
On impulse she ran her thumb along the back. Not surprised in the least she realized it was engraved.
A watch with an engraving was the type of gift someone would give a boyfriend.
Emma flipped it over and forced herself to read the engraving.
Love you forever. Jenny.
Cringing, Emma swallowed the lump in her throat.
They had lived together, it made sense that they’d been in love. Emma wanted to know what happened between them. She was sure it would help her to better understand him and his reluctance to commit to a woman.

Cameron discusses with us what she is currently working on!
I’m currently finishing up the Unexpected Changes series. My Mistletoe Master (book 1) was released in December, Not His Type (book 2) was out in January, and The Perfect Fix (book 3) was released in May. I’m chipping away at the final book in the series.
Unexpected Changes is a four book series, each book focuses on a different couple. The series is based around four guys who have stayed friends since high school. Right now I’m working on the final novel in the collection, Kevin’s story.
What’s next? Well, I have a few surprise stories I hope to write, before I start into my next series. Some short stories that link back to the Unexpected Changes series. I also have two short M/M stories coming out before the end of the year as well.
On July 13th I have a standalone, short story coming out called Neptune’s Passion. Throughout the month of July, my publisher eXtasy Books, will be releasing a different short story, from a different author, each day. They are all summer or vacation themed stories. Perfect for reading at the beach!
This is the very first peek at Neptune’s Passion! (The following blurb and excerpt, are unedited)
Hot Greek male looking for roommate for tropical vacation. Must be female. Must be sexy brunette, with a passion for reading. Must be Natalie Donovan.
When Griff asked her, if to cut costs, she’d like to room with him at their friends’ wedding, Natalie should have said no. But now as they sip margaritas on a white sand beach, Natalie finds flirting with her long time crush a little too easy. And finds sleeping next to him, night after night, to be too much temptation.
Natalie now knew what an utter mistake she’d made by agreeing to room with Griff.
Over the top of her book, she watched him walk out of the pool at the resort. Water cascaded down his body, shimmering in the sunlight as it trickled down his abs. His biceps swelled when he reached up to smooth wet hair out of his eyes. If touched, Natalie expected those circular bumps would have absolutely no give.
Smiling at her, he stretched out on the neighboring lounge chair. He didn’t bother to use the towel he’d left hanging on the back. Instead, he let the hot sun evaporate the clingy droplets. Raising one arm, he used that impressive bicep to cushion his head. In a state of relaxed bliss, he closed his eyes.
Natalie’s heart skipped a beat. The masculine tuff of hair beneath his arm curled from lingering moister. Retaining some of the chlorinated water, the hair on his forearms and legs was plastered to his skin. On his smooth chest, the only place water had pooled was beneath the gold cross pendant that sat between his pecs.
Forcing her attention back to the book she attempted to make sense of the words on the page, but with her mind turned to mush she ended up reading the same sentence over and over.

Top 5 Things On My Bucket List (In no particular order)
I haven’t really given much thought to this. I have tons of writing goals I want to accomplish, and my husband and I aren’t big into travel, so for now I’ll give you a few things (in no particular order) that I’d like to do within my life that hopefully you’ll find interesting.
I want to visit the UK. Part of this is because I’d love to travel England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. I’d love to see some of the places I’ve read about in regency historical romances. However, after meeting Sean Kerr online, part of my reasoning, is that I want to go party with him!
I’d LOVE to turn writing into a full time career.
Hubby and I want to have kids. Hopefully soon.
I’d love to go to a movie or television set. Definitely not in front of the camera, but I’m fascinated by how they put together films and shows. I think the process would be neat to sit in on.
I’d like to travel across Canada. It’s a beautiful country and so vastly different from one place to the next. That would definitely be on my bucket list.
We would like to thank Cameron Allie for joining us today, it has been an absolute pleasure to showcase her work.
