Scared? Have a Free Marshmallow.

Well, hello there.
I wasn’t expecting company.
Well, wait. Yeah, maybe I was.

My name is Regina Cole, and I’m an erotic romance author and marshmallow addict.

Wait, this isn’t a twelve-step meeting? Damn it. *checks calendar*

OH! Sorry! This is Darker Temptations! And this is my inaugural post, in which I introduce myself and give you nice things!

Well isn’t that embarrassing.

Ahem. Let’s start over.

Regina Cole. Erotic Romance Author for Ellora’s Cave. Loves marshmallows, dogs, and fishing. Hates people that tap on the glass of aquariums and badly fitting bras.

Here at Darker Temptations, the mood is somewhat, well, darker. Since I write everything from light contemporary to erotic horror, I’ll be trying to talk more about my darker stuff here, but be aware that I genre-bounce like the Dos Equis guy bed hops. So if I wander over into contemporary land, send one of my compatriots to yank me back.

I’ve been reading scifi, horror and fantasy since I had my first library card. I had a preteen love affair with Edgar Allan Poe, and I’ve never quite gotten over him. (I recited The Raven in a poetry competition in high school, and I make a pilgrimage to his hometown of Baltimore once a year. My husband claims that’s for a baseball game, but I can FEEL POE’S SPIRIT while I’m there. Rly. Srsly.)

But since my A #1 love is and always will be romance, I mash up these things with love stories, and so far, I think it’s going pretty well!

My fourth release with Ellora’s Cave, which should be coming out in the next few months, is an erotic paranormal romance. It’s the first book in an intended series, and is all about witches. Which make me happy.

But you’re supposed to get to know ME in this post, right? So, here goes. I’m a happily married twenty-something with two crazy dogs and a fat cat. I have a day job, a fish, and an ancient Honda SUV. My dream is to stay at home in my pajamas and write all day, every day. My family is crazy yet supportive, and I live in the deep, DEEP South, where possums are the primary roadkill and “liberal” is a dirty word.

I try to stay very, very quiet here.

If you’ve made it through the post thus far, you deserve something. A chance to win something cool, at least. So here’s what we’re going to do. All survivors can leave their comment below, and I’ll pick one lucky zombie to receive a copy of SINFUL TRUTH, my erotic horror romance from Ellora’s Cave Publishing.

Isn’t that special? Don’t you feel like we know each other so well already? Aren’t you happy that I’m inviting you to my house-cleaning party this weekend?



Where’d you go?

Til next time, m’loves,

Regina Cole Happily Erotic After. Books available for purchase at Ellora’s Cave, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

  1. Hi Regina! It’s nice to meet you. I will have to say that I totally agree about badly fitting bras! 🙂

  2. Welcome to darker temptations, Regina! And I’m on board with the badly fitting bras as well. Oh and I don’t really write dark stuff. I like to laugh too much 🙂

    • Hiya Danica! I’m so happy to be here. 🙂
      Yeah, darker probably wasn’t the best choice of words there, lol. My paranormals are on the lighter side too, actually. But my horror? Eep!

      It’s so cool to be a part of this great group!


  3. Superb intro, Reggie! I love the dark stories too and of course, hate ill fitting bras. ;}

  4. Hi Regina!
    Thanks for the marshmallow. Yummy!

    Oh dear, everybody is gonna hate me…I am one of those with an ill fitting bra. *jan ducking marshmallows* lolol

    Great to be here. 🙂


    • Hi Jan!!
      I always have plenty of marshmallows to spare. 🙂

      And I don’t hate people that wear bad bras, I empathize with them! The bras themselves are demons, sent to torment us with pinchy latex and poky wires.

      Maybe we should cushion them with marshmallows?


  5. Lol Regina! Welcome to Darker Temptations! Love that possums are the “roadkill” of the south…here where I live…it seems to be either rabbits, squirrels or my least favorite of all “skunks” and man do they stink! Love the cover for Sinful Truth!

  6. Lol, fab intro, Regina. I like the darker side of romance, so I’ll be adding your books to my lists. And yes, every ill-fitting bra should be burnt…with lots of fire;)

    • Hi Tina! Thanks for commenting 🙂
      I do hope you enjoy the books! I’m thinking of making an ill-fitting bra the motivating factor in my next horror book. 😉


  7. Fabulous intro Regina. Nice to meet you. I’m looking forward to blogging with you. My soon to be released EC book is also about witches. They’re fun to write about.

  8. It’s great to meet you Regina. Looking forward to hearing more from you. I agree with you about about the badly fitting bras.

  9. I am so with you about loving marshmallows and hating bras…I mean badly fitting bras. I am looking forward to reading more about your works. I read everything from light/fun to dark/intense, historicals to futuristics, everything in between, so I do like finding authors who write different styles too.
    Btw, I used to work with a woman who had a possum as a pet…..YUCK!

    • June,
      Seriously? A possum as a PET? This was not a normal human, I take it.
      I can understand pet rats, snakes, even giant frogs. But a possum???

      No. Just…no.
      Possums are creepy. Jagged teeth, glowy eyes… Ugh.

      Anyway, I’m glad you stopped by!

  10. Hello, Regina. 🙂
    I think I may be a marshmallow addict also. I can’t keep them in the house, or I will be like 300 lbs. Lol. I used to live in the mountains and actually had a possum come into my house several times. They had to kill it because it kept finding it’s way back inside. A little scary when you walk into the kitchen and you see glowing eyes. We also had skunks live under our house. Now, that is a hard smell to get out!
    I don’t think that I have ever read an erotic horror story before. It sounds interesting.
    I look forward to reading your posts. 😉
