Paranormal romance "Love Bites: When a Werewolf Loves a Vampire" by author Joanna Morgan.

When Love Bites: A Howling Good Romance Inspired By Real Life Quirks.

Dear fellow readers and seekers of love in the extraordinary,

Author Joanna Morgan here! Today, I am thrilled to unveil the strange real-life inspiration behind my latest paranormal romance novel, Love Bites: When A Werewolf Loves a Vampire. Buckle up, for this is no ordinary love story. It’s a tale of action, humor, and undeniable passion, borne from the peculiarities of my own marriage and the allure of a Hollywood blockbuster.

Picture this: It all began one cozy movie night when Mr. & Mrs. Smith, starring the infamous Brangelina, graced our screen. Their chemistry was undeniable, their action-packed dynamic, mesmerizing. And amidst the chaos of bullets and passion, an idea struck me—what if this story was a paranormal romance instead? How cool would that be?

Inspiration knows no bounds, and as fate would have it, my own life offered up some whimsical inspiration. You see, my husband and I are as different as night and day, or should I say–as different as a werewolf and a vampire??

Yes, you read that right. Allow me to explain.

My husband, the epitome of strength and ruggedness, often finds himself humorously compared to a werewolf. Mostly by me, lol. It’s not that he transforms during full moons—no, it’s much simpler. He is remarkably strong, delightfully hairy, never seems to get sick, and heals rapidly from injury. And oh, did I mention he’s a walking furnace? The man radiates heat like a bonfire on a winter’s night at all times. Which is fantastic for me, since I’m always cold…

If he’s the werewolf, then I’m the vampire, or so we jest. My pale skin turns red in the sun, refusing to tan. My preference for spending time indoors engrossed in books and writing further feeds the theory. To top it off, I had a memorable phase when I was literally allergic to sunlight, courtesy of some medication I took for my migraines. I turned red, got itchy, and blistered after less than half an hour of exposure. I literally burned in the sun.

Thankfully I’m on a different med and no longer allergic to the sun, but that’s how the seeds of Love Bites were sown. Two beings from opposite worlds, brought together by fate, living under the veil of human disguise, and madly in love. But, ah, the secret they each hold—the secret of their true nature.

As their story unfolds, the line between reality and the supernatural blurs, and hilarity ensues as they attempt to conceal their extraordinary selves. Picture a werewolf trying not to howl during a full moon or a vampire attempting to discreetly quench their thirst for a sip of crimson liquid. Trust me; laughter is guaranteed!

Yet, beneath the humor lies a deeply romantic undercurrent, as our star-crossed lovers navigate the complexities of their relationship. Their hearts beat as one, but their races have a history of loathing each other, adding tension and conflict to their fated love.

Love Bites delves into the theme of acceptance and confronting prejudice. Both protagonists must learn to embrace their true selves and, more importantly, find the courage to embrace each other unconditionally. It is a tale of conquering fear and choosing love, no matter the obstacles.

As I wrote this romance, I marveled at how our own quirks and eccentricities had influenced the characters’ lives. To be sure, my husband and I have never faced the true dilemmas of werewolves and vampires, but the essence of our bond and our individual quirks lent its magic to the pages of this novel.

So, dear readers, as you delve into the depths of Love Bites, remember that truth can indeed be stranger than fiction. For in the heart of this paranormal romance, lies a love story inspired by a real couple’s quirks. The inspiration from Mr. & Mrs. Smith just gave me the framework for love to conquer all.

Love Bites: When A Werewolf Loves a Vampire is only available to read on the YONDER reading app, but you can read it for free with new user coins and daily unlocks!

Here’s to love’s ability to bite us in the most extraordinary ways, causing us both pleasure and pain and leaving us forever changed by its sweet sting.

Happy reading, and may your hearts find their own extraordinary love!

With love and fangs,


P.S. I hope you enjoy reading Love Bites as much as I enjoyed writing it. Remember, love conquers all—even hairy howls and bloodthirsty cravings!

New Release! Love Bites: When A Werewolf Loves A Vampire

A Tale of Betrayal, Prejudice, and Rediscovered Love

Hi, author Joanna Morgan here! I’m thrilled to unveil my extraordinary new book that will sweep you into a world of forbidden love, heart-wrenching revelations, and the resilience of the human spirit. Love Bites: When A Werewolf Loves A Vampire is an enthralling tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat, craving for more with each turn of the page. Get ready to embark on an emotional journey as two true soulmates, John and Jane, navigate a treacherous path towards redemption, battling their own secrets and the prejudices of their kind.

Synopsis: In a world divided by ancient feuds and hatred, John, a passionate and loyal werewolf, and Jane, a mysterious and alluring vampire, find themselves happily bound in holy matrimony. Little do they know, each is unaware of the other’s true identity, believing their spouse to be extraordinary, but fully human. However, a series of events conspires to unravel their carefully guarded secrets, shattering their trust and throwing their love into jeopardy.

When John and Jane discover each other’s hidden natures, anger and betrayal consume their hearts. They must confront their own prejudices and the generational hate that threatens to tear them apart. The path to their happy ever after is strewn with countless obstacles and challenges that test the very foundation of their love.

As John and Jane embark on a quest for understanding and acceptance from each other, they encounter resistance from their own kind, forcing them to question the beliefs they once held dear. Despite the odds stacked against them, their love refuses to waver, propelling them forward on a journey to bridge the divide and rebuild the trust that was shattered.

Their rediscovered love becomes a beacon of hope, inspiring others to challenge long-held prejudices and seek harmony in a world consumed by animosity. It is a tale that reminds us that love can conquer even the deepest divides, and that sometimes, our true destinies lie beyond what we perceive.

Now for the Easter Egg: In case you don’t already know, this book draws inspiration from the enthralling dynamics of the iconic characters portrayed in the adventure-romance-spy movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith. I loved this movie for the action and excitement, but most of all, for the electrifying chemistry between the characters (And their actors…).

Just as the film showcased the complex relationship between two spies with hidden identities, this book explores the tumultuous journey of John and Jane, werewolf and vampire, as they navigate a world filled with secrecy, betrayal, and forbidden love. And yes, my characters John and Jane are named after the characters in the movie. 😉 The tension between the protagonists, reminiscent of the film’s characters, hopefully, adds an extra layer of intrigue and excitement to the narrative.

Love Bites: When A Werewolf Loves A Vampire delves into the depths of human emotion, exploring themes of trust, betrayal, and as always, the power of love to triumph over adversity.

Join John and Jane as they navigate a world filled with hatred and prejudice, seeking redemption and forging a path towards a future where love knows no boundaries.

I hope this book will leave an indelible mark on your heart and remind you that, in the face of darkness, love truly has the power to conquer all.
