Daredevil's Mistress
by Charlene Namdhari | Interview

Q: DAREDEVIL'S MISTRESS is book #1 of your debut Fire & Ice Series. Where did you get your inspiration for this series? How are the books tied together?

I think like most authors, inspiration for our books comes from some aspect of our lives or experiences we may have had as we grew. The inspiration for Daredevil's Mistress stems from a facet of my life when living and loving was dictated by family norms. I was raised in a household where respect was important and you didn't go against the wishes of the elders. The books are tied together by...

Perfectly Daring
With the ink barely dry on her divorce papers, and a three-year-old daughter to provide for, Tory Choate is more than grateful to her old friend from college, for giving her a chance to dust off her life coaching skills with the Dallas Drillers players. As if putting Dwayne Jackson on any path that doesn't lead to prison isn't enough of a challenge, resisting her unexpected attraction to the sexy wide receiver tests her control. Having tried the safe path once and been burned, a walk on the wild side might be just what she needs to get her back on track. But is she daring enough to take the first step? One of the best wide receivers in football, Dwayne Jackson has burned every bridge he's crossed in the NFL. Picked up by the Dallas Drillers it's either get his life on track or kiss his career goodbye. He'd rather kiss the sexy life coach assigned to him, but the signals are clear—keep his hands off the ultra-conservative Victoria "Tory" Choate—or else. No woman has ever come close to luring Dwayne across the relationship bridge, but then, none of those women were Victoria Choate.
Powerful Destiny
"Highly recommended to readers of romance, historical romance, and time travel romance. Fans of Barbara Erskine will adore this tale! Do you believe in reincarnation? Can passion travel through the ages? And do you think that there are people destined to be together? The story opens with a Viking raid on a Celtic village, where Rolf, the Viking leader, meets Brigid, a Celtic woman. There is no sugar-coating the horrors of the Viking raids. At that time, the raids were bloody and merciless. But people of that time did not have the choices we have now. War and raids were a fact of life, especially along the coast. The Vikings were a greatly feared people, and they ranged far and wide. When Rolf sees Brigid, he realizes she's meant to be his. He has found his destiny. But in a cruel twist of fate, he is now her enemy and her captor. Brigid has to learn to accept the fate that has destroyed her life but offered her a new chance at happiness. The second part of the story takes place in modern times, when another Rolf, looking for a gift for his neice, bumps into a woman who seems eerily familiar, and he finds himself wondering if destiny, or fate, really does exist. A romantic, fast moving novella - this book will sweep you away to another time and place, and make you believe in a love ruled by fate. " Reviewed by Jennifer Macaire
