The Lady is Trouble
by Tracy Sumner
Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the League of Lords paranormal series? It sounds exciting! How are the books tied together?
I had a scene in my mind years ago. It's not actually a scene that is IN the book but rather described there. When the hero and heroine meet as children. I hesitate to strongly use the word paranormal--think psychics. With much of the similar Victorian historical wrapped around it.
The hero, Julian,...

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Lords of the Highlands series? How are the books tied together?N:
I have always been interested in the Jacobite era, and the Lords of the Highlands series centers on and leads up to the 1715 rising led by the Earl of Mar.

The Earl and The Enchantress
by Paullett Golden
Q: Where did you get your inspiration for THE EARL AND THE ENCHANTRESS?N:

Lizbeth and Sebastian needed a story, so I let them tell it. I was surprised along the way with decisions they made and twists in the story that...

My husband and I travel a lot for business and pleasure. Over the forty plus years of our marriage, we have stayed at everything from stunning boutique hotels to fabulous bed and breakfasts to corporate chains. We even stayed at a Motel 6 in a blizzard in Davenport, Iowa in the late 1970s. It was so...

The inspiration came from learning about the life of Saint Margaret, Queen of Scotland.

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?N:
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...
