Book and Author Information with An Excerpt for The Sum of All

Author Bios:

Ever since she was young, Kiki Howell has loved to listen to a well-woven tale with real characters, inspired plots, and delightful resolutions. Kiki could spend hours lost in a book, and soon she knew that creating lives, loves, and losses with just words had to be the greatest thing that she could do. To that end, she pursued her study of literature and writing, earning a bachelor’s degree in English. She then followed in a Master’s program in Creative Writing.

“After a long break having my boys, I finally just had to write again. And, as soon as I gave the stories the space, they entered it. It’s both awesome and humbling to find the words in my mind become characters on a page and create their lives.”

She has now had over twenty stories published between seven different small presses. She could not be more thrilled or grateful to see her creations polished and out in the real world. Although, a bit of caution, most of her stories tend to hang out on the graphically sexy side of town. You can visit her at

Emma Hillman never plans her stories. She just lets the characters have fun and hopes the ending will make sense. It usually does.

Besides being a multi-published author of erotic romances, she works full-time and lives in Paris with a (nice) husband, a (cute) little girl, and two sweet but (very) loud pets. She also reads far too much as the postman (and her banker) could attest, but shhhh.

For more information on her current and future releases, you can visit her blog at or chat with her on Twitter (@droptheglasses). She’d love to hear from you!

The Sum of All Blurb:

When a spell goes wrong and two witches find themselves stuck in a house with a plethora of paranormal creatures, tension rises and sparks ignite. A gauntlet is thrown down, a contest is born, rules are drawn up, and soon, the two women are living out the fantasies they’d never thought to have.

Who will be the best? Will jealousy prevail? Or, will they get their hearts snared by one or two of those Alpha males?

Advanced Reviews:

“Combine Vampire, Fey, Shifter and Sorcerer, add one pissed off witch and her friend, and what do you get? One hell of a hot and steamy adventure. Who wouldn't enjoy a romp with these four hot men? I know I would. The one thing Emma and Kiki did in this very short story is make it complete. Both the characters and the story are unique. Mae is strong, angry, and determined to forget. Es is the friend trying to calm Mae. Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it in spades. Enter Rafe, Marcus, Devlin and Julian. Oh my, the heat and the passion started steaming up my laptop. As a reader, I like story with my erotica. These authors gave me the total package. This story made me tingle in all the right ways like good erotica should. The second thing they did was give it an HEA ending. I loved it!

It is obvious that this collaboration between Ms. Howell and Ms. Hillman is a successful one! The only downside for me was that it was too short. Ladies next time give me more!” ~Mom Cat's Burning 5 of 5 shooting stars!~”

“I'm new to Emma Hillman's work but I'm quite familiar with Kiki Howell's and she certainly knows how to deliver. I was drawn right from the start as this hot explicit tale draws you into the fantasy. Four gorgeous men, two women, and a night that has nothing but pleasure on the agenda, will leave you wishing it was you in their place…in the end making me want this hot little read to go on and on, it's that good.” ~ Jennifer Labelle, Author of the Leather and Pleasure series~


“Another one? Mae!” Es huffed.

“Oops.” Mae eyed up the new man. He was a sure confirmation of what she’d done. In front of her stood a fair man, masculine but beautiful in every way. Her assessment was interrupted by Rafe’s teeth raking down the side of her neck and the shivers that started running up her spine. “Hey! No biting!” she finally remembered to say.

The vampire’s head drew back, and he stared at her nonplussed. “No biting?”

If she wouldn’t have had another visitor to contend with, she’d have laughed at his whiny voice. “No biting, baby. No blood spilled, etc. etc.. I am just not cleaning it off the carpet. Now,” She turned toward the blonde god standing in her doorway. “Welcome. What’s your name?”

The man’s eyebrow lifted. “My name is Devlin. I’m a Fey Prince, and I’m here in answer to your call. Where do you want to do this?”

She blinked. “Do what?”

“An impetuous and impassioned rite of sex, of course. That’s what you’ve called me for after all.”

“Impetuous?” her voice ended on a squeak. “Impassioned?”

“Rite of sex. Yes. So?” He stared back at her, his arms crossed over his chest. The toned forearms accented his six-pack abs. Ah, another shirtless man. So nice of them to come prepared. With his wings still extended and flowing gossamer feathers down to his jean-covered thighs, he looked more a modern god than just a mere prince.

“Back off. She is mine.” Rafe came to stand in front of Mae, the white of his eyes starting to turn red.

“Who says?” Devlin asked. He looked at the vampire like he would a new opponent and then with one shake of his head, clearly dismissed him. “So, where do you want to do this? I don’t have much time. I have to go back to my people.”

Mae tilted her head to the side so she could look at him from behind the vampire. His good looks were rugged, and yet, as crystal clear as his blue eyes. There was almost an aura about the man; too perfect if you asked her.

“Your people?” she repeated, the enormity of what she’d done finally getting through to her. She’d called all these creatures to her? What the hell had she done? She wondered a brief second as his wings receded inward.

She heard shuffling behind her and turned, only to find her friend trying to disentangle herself from the sudden attentions of the shifter. “Get off!”

“No.” He grabbed Es’s butt in both hands and drew her forward.

“I didn’t call you! She did!” Es pointed to her.

“So what?” He sniffed around her friend, his voice a growl once again. “I can smell your desire. Your scent doesn’t lie. You want this. You want me.”

Es gasped. “No, I don’t!”

“Yes, you do.”

Oooh, this is gonna be really good!! Can't wait!! Kiki, kudos to you for getting back into the writing after the kids. Personally, I haven't hardly any braincells left in my head at the end of every day with my lovely children. I love them to death, yet I think they may be the death of me!
