Jenna Ives - Interview & Giveaway - Snow White and Her Seven Lovers

2012 may well be Snow White's best year ever. With two movies coming out - Snow White and the Huntsman with Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, and Mirror Mirror with Julia Roberts and Lily Collins Ms. Ives has chosen the perfect time to give this time-proven fairy tale a well-needed face lift!
And oh, what a face lift it is!
Read on to see how you can win your very own copy!

Blurb -
What’s a girl to do when she wakes up poisoned in the ER and finds that she’s lost her memory, her family, and very nearly her life?

That was me. Three months ago. With no identity, no money, and nowhere to go on the day I was discharged from the hospital, I gratefully accepted my gorgeous ER doctor’s offer to move in with him and his equally gorgeous six friends – the ones who’d found me unconscious in an apple orchard. My plan was to stay until my memory returned, and I could figure out who I was and if someone really had tried to kill me.

Together with Doc, these were an amazingly diverse bunch of guys, but there was something about each of them that attracted me powerfully enough to want to explore it. The policeman with his clever handcuffs. The cunningly linguistic librarian. The disciplinarian teacher. The virgin computer whiz who loved to play sex games. The engineer who created shotgun orgasms. The wildly imaginative baker.

Becoming intimate with these seven men completed me in ways I suspected discovering my name never would. That is, until the fateful day a man showed up claiming to be my fiancé...

 Over the last few years, I've had the pleasure of meeting quite a few romance authors, but few share my crazy sense of humor. As you can see from the blurb for Snow White and Her Seven Lovers, Ms. Ives has a vivid imagination. She also has a great sense of humor, so I pulled out all the stops when I  interviewed her. 
All the questions were fill in the blank, so...

Help me welcome Jenna Ives!

1.       My favorite Reality TV show is The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I love the idea of having nothing to do but spend lots of money and go to parties. Not likely to happen tho, LOL!! Now who wouldn't want that life? But I'd rather do it without the drama and the TV cameras!

2.       My all-time favorite movie is City Of Angels with Meg Ryan and Nicolas Cage. (But there are so many others I love!) I don't think I know this one. Gotta go check it out now. I do love Meg and Nicholas, so I'm thinking I'm gonna love it. Netflix, here I come.

3.       Worst haircut I ever had was right before my high school senior photo. GAK! I wanted to look cool and ended up looking dorky. So not me. I'm not laughing. Promise. Yeah, that's a lie. I'm LMAO.

4.       Biggest mistake I ever made was above-mentioned haircut. Did I mention that photo will live forever in my yearbook?? Which high school was that? I don't remember you saying...

5.       I once set my parents’ garage on fire. Totally an accident. (Hi, Mom! Really, it was an accident.) Uh huh. Riiiigghht.

6.       I'd eat frogs legs if they were coated in chocolate. I'm not sure I'd go that far, but I do love chocolate.

7.       The worst vacation I ever took was to Eleuthera, in the Bahamas. I woke up one night with a palmetto bug (one of those giant cockroaches) trying to crawl into my mouth. YUK! Eewwww! Gross! Crossing that off my list of travel destinations!

8.       I remember when there were vinyl records. Really? You're that old? LOL

9.       Last book I read for fun was Death Comes To Pemberley by P.D. James. I’ll read anything related to Jane Austen/Elizabeth Bennet!I'm a big Jane Austen fan too.

10.   If I could change bodies and lives with anyone on the planet, I'd switch with Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. Who wouldn’t?? She’s down-to-earth and elegant at the same time. Great choice! I wouldn't mind being her sister. Same good looks, and a whole lot less responsibility.

11.   You couldn't pay me to become a politician. Me either.

12.   The worst job I ever had was as a candy-striper, cleaning out bedpans at the local hospital. Yeah, you don't have to say any more about that. We get the picture!

13.   The most important thing I learned in first grade was how much I loved stories! I became a writer as a result. And were those stories you loved fairy tales by any chance?

14.   If I could stop Godzilla from destroying my hometown by feeding him one person, I'd give him Charlie Sheen, and good riddance. We’ve had enough of this tiger-blood warlock! I think you'd have a lot of help with this one!

15.   I'd rather be reading than answer these questions. LOL Thanks for being such a good sport! You can go back to reading now while we talk about you behind your back and discuss SNOW WHITE AND HER SEVEN LOVERS. Just kidding. You can hang around if you want!


I haven't read fairy tales since my girls were little, but for this, I made an exception. Ms. Ives has taken the classic Snow White tale, given it a modern setting and stripped the heroine of her innocence, making all kinds of things possible. This version is an adult romp through a fantasy every apple eating woman would like to have! Ms. Ives rendition is clever and fun, and surprisingly believable, in a quirky sort of way. You'll smile, giggle, and reach for a fan, or maybe a favorite toy, all at the same time. I haven't had this much fun reading an erotic romance in a very long time.

Get to know Jenna Ives - 
Jenna Ives has the typical problem that affects a lot of modern authors — multiple personality disorder. She writes for several publishers under a variety of names, but mostly the reason is to keep her poor mother (who used to read sweet romances by Barbara Cartland) from having a heart attack over how sexy modern romances have become!  And Jenna certainly DOES write sexy…
