In Fair Brighton (Star-Crossed Mafia #1)
by Elena Kincaid | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Star-Crossed Mafia series? How are the books tied together?

I've always loved Romeo and Juliet and when my two main characters popped into my head, the two of them reminded me of a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, although my couple does not meet the same tragic end. The series will continue with the star-crossed theme, and the characters will all somehow be connected through these rival mob families from Brooklyn. I've already introduced the readers to my next two leading men in book one.
