This month's mini interview is with the incredibly talented Ashley Bennett. She is the co-author of the amazing Vera and the Vegas V omegaverse duet, and she has some monster romance projects in the works that you absolutely don't want to miss.
Let's get into it!
1. Tell us about yourself.
I'm Ashley Bennett. I live in the United States and I write sweet omegaverse, monster romance, and male male contemporary.
2. How did you get into writing romance?
I started reading romance during the Covid-19 pandemic and started The Smut and Spice Podcast with a friend. I've always had a passion for writing, and when my co-host on the podcast introduced me to her friend, Sarah Blue, we decided to write a book together!
3. Tell us about your latest release!
My latest release is Vera and the Vegas V: Part Two! It's a sweet omegaverse filled with spicy scenes, adventure, and because it completes the duet—you're guaranteed a happily ever after (read the epilogue! It's so cute!).
4. What else are you working on in 2022?
In 2022, I'm shifting into monster romance. I've always loved monsters and unique *anatomy*, so it was a very natural transition. My book Warts and All is slated for September, but will be moved up. I'm also working on a novella series! More details on that to come.
5. What are you reading right now?
Right now I'm working my way through Clio Evans Creature Cafe novellas. They're the perfect quick, spicy read.
Vera and the Vegas V
Vera Hastings resents her designation as an Omega and has spent most of her life fighting against the things that come along with it. After multiple encounters with Alphas that just want to take advantage of her, she’s almost given up on her biological need to bond.
That is, until fate steps in and Vera is traded to the Vegas Mystics female soccer team. After meeting the teams PR manager and their pack, Vera's interest is piqued. Can Vera work past her loathing of her designation, her mistrust of Alphas and consider joining a pack?
Although this pack is unique and unlike any other Vera has ever met, they have their own issues when it comes to claiming an Omega. Will they be able to come together and is Vera the Omega they need in order to thrive?
This book is an omegaverse reverse harem that contains explicit content including MM content, non-binary representation and group activities.
