Tianna Xander’s Tempting Tabitha a shape shifter’s romance

Hi! I’m Tianna author, mother, friend, and general pain in the rear. I’m the baby of the family, but surprisingly not bratty, or so I am told. It seems as though I’m always considered the ‘goto’ person for just about everything for some people.

I was born and raised in the USA. The youngest of six children, I know what it’s like to wear hand-me-downs and tag along behind the older kids who always tried to ditch me. I don’t know when I decided to write for publication. I think it was sometime in my twenties while waiting for my sailor husband to come home from a med-cruise. I love reading romance and got tired of waiting for my favorite authors to publish another book. Back then, there weren’t very many paranormal romance authors and I had to wait a year or more and that just wouldn’t do. My first book was published in 2006 and I’ve been writing ever since.

Tempting Tabitha is number four of what will be a six or more series of books. The Zolon Warriors have their own set of personal codes. They don’t take things that belong to others, even though they consider themselves raiders until they’re mated or married and they never, ever mistreat women. To do so, would be like spitting in the face of their gods, especially their goddess. The inspiration for this book and the others in the series came from researching tigers for another story. Tigers, maybe all cats, have odd physical attributes that I used in the series.

Promoting my work is a challenge. To tell the truth, I’d rather be writing. I love communicating with readers on Facebook and Twitter and I always love emails telling me what they think of my books.
