It's Complicated
by Nikki Prince | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Undeniable series? How are the books tied together?N:

by Elena Kincaid | Interview

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

These books are tied together...

Love Unexpected wasn't even supposed to be a series. The Blind Date (book 1) was a serial novel on my website that I eventually released as a book.

The Takedown
by Katey Hawthorne | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Superpowered Love series? How are the books tied together?N:
The inspiration comes from my love of superhero comics. Too often, the comics focus more on action, so I find myself craving something more character-driven and intimate... but still involving superpowers. The awakened are my answer to that.

Since each book in the series has different main characters...

Edge of Truth
by Brynn Kelly | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for this story?N:
The character of the hero, Flynn, was the starting point for Edge of Truth, because he appears in Deception Island, my first book in the Legionnaires series for HQN.
