Tara Quan - Halloween Surprise #1

Hi Everyone! First off, I’d like to thank my lovely hosts and hostesses for having me over today. I write romances as Tara Quan. As a newbie author, I’m still finding my way in the world, which is code for being a bit all over the place as far as subgenres go. My first published work was a sci-fi post-apocalyptic retelling of Rapunzel. Needless to say, it wasn’t what I’d consider a commercial success, but it led me to the SFR Brigade and Pippa Jay, and that connection brought me here.
Ever since Tower in the Woods came out in January 2013, my creative compass has led me to explore both fantasy and contemporary worlds, and it recently pointed me in the direction of the paranormal. My Halloween surprise, Flirting with Fire, came out a few days ago, just in time for All Hallows’ Eve. The first installment in my A Witch’s Night Out series, it features a clueless fire mage, his fed-up cat familiar, and Decadent Publishing’s renowned 1-night stand service. With the aid of an elevator, my witch and warlock will iron out the kinks of an outdated employment contract in a spectacularly fiery fashion (two nights from now in real time).
In case I’ve thoroughly confused you with the description, I’ve included the blurb below (it was written by someone far more skilled at synopses than I). Before I run off, I should let you know I’m giving away a $15 gift card to celebrate my release. To enter, leave a comment here, and drop your details in the Rafflecopter widget on my website:

Flirting with Fire (A Witch’s Night Out, 1)
Apprentice witch Catalina Gato is prohibited from assuming her human form in front of her new employer without his express permission. Since he doesn’t know he’s a warlock, he can’t give it, leaving her in a familiar’s limbo. To make matters worse, she’s barred from leaving his house, and her attempts to enlighten him of his true nature results in burnt notes, charred walls, and exploding laptops.
On All Hallows’ Eve, she gets one night of freedom. Deciding some no-strings-attached sex might take the edge off the intense attraction she feels for her clueless boss, she signs up for Madame Eve’s service. When she meets her masked mystery date at the Castillo Capital, she realizes she might have gotten much more than she bargained for.
After being gifted a one-night stand from his annoying best friend, attorney Leo Difuoco reluctantly ventures to the Castillo Capital to celebrate Halloween. When he meets his oddly familiar green-eyed date in a Cat Woman costume, flames literally ignite, sparks magically fly, and life as he knows it changes forever.
