The Pirate's Jewel
by Ruth A. Casie | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for THE PIRATE'S JEWEL?N:
Have you ever read a book with secondary characters that scream for a story of their own? Or better yet, characters you want to know more about. Wesley Reynolds and Darla Maxwell, the central characters of The Pirate's Jewel are the parents of Lisbeth Reynolds, the heroine in my story, The Guardian's...
The Highland Renegade
by Amy Jarecki | Interview

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. It is a time of enormous change when the eon's-long way of the Highlanders is crumbling. Misunderstanding is rife as government dragoons are sent...
The Earl and The Enchantress
by Paullett Golden | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for THE EARL AND THE ENCHANTRESS?N:
When I craft a story, I'm inspired by a combination of factors, ranging from the setting to the research. This story was character-driven from start to finish. 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...
Eye of the Eagle
by Sharon Buchbinder | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Hotel LaBelle series? How are the books tied together?N:
My husband and I travel a lot for business and pleasure.

We even stayed at a Motel 6 in a blizzard in Davenport, Iowa in the late 1970s. It was so...
The Crusader's Heart
by Kate Forrest | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for The MacKinnons of Mull series? How are the books tied together?N:
The inspiration came from learning about the life of Saint Margaret, Queen of Scotland.

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?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...
Must Have Faith
by Deborah Garland | Interview

Q: MUST HAVE FAITH is book #2 of the Darling Cove Series. Where did you get your inspiration for this series? How are the books tied together?N:
I hadn't set out to write a series. I wrote, Must Love Fashion, but at the time it was called, Wishing on Italian Stars. I had all the ingredients for a series in that first book; a small town and a close-knit family but I hadn't intended for them to have their own books. I'm a member of the Long Island...
Scandalous in a Kilt
by Anna Durand | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Hot Scots series? What connects all the books together?N:
My late father was always very proud of our Scottish heritage and loved everything about Scotland. I inherited that fascination from him.

Batiste
by Victoria Danann | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Cajun Devils series? How are the books tied together? How are the books related to the series Sons of Sanctuary MC?N:
I live in the Houston area where we have almost as many Cajuns as you would find in Louisiana. The SSMC series and Cajun Devils are inextricably tied together. Two of the major characters in Batiste Just Batiste and Dev Merit, as well as the Devils as a club, were introduced as part of the story of SSMC,...
Not Fade Away, Interstellar Rescue Series Book 4
by Donna S. Frelick | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Interstellar Rescue series? How are the books tied together?N:
I wove together two idea threads to make the series possible. One was the common story of alien abduction--how people are Taken by little Gray aliens, and, often, Returned to Earth after experiencing all manner of abuse. The other was the idea of interstellar slavery. If the aliens are taking humans...
Dangerous
by Tory Richards | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Nomad Outlaws Trilogy? How are the books tied together?N:
Sometimes a secondary character I write in a story will stand out for me and I'll decide that they need their own story. I rarely begin a story with the thought in mind that I want to write a series, but I had a couple of characters in different books that caught the attention of readers. Both Rebel...
Murder Notes
by Lisa Renee Jones | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Nomad Outlaws Trilogy? How are the books tied together?N:
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:
The idea came to me while watching friends chat about sex. I thought how easy it was that they talked about it and that it would be fun to do a friends to lovers story with the heroine being the one to initiate talking about a friends with benefits relationship.

Crossing the Line: A DAMC/BAMC Crossover
When the wrong man turns out to be the right one... Nash, a longtime Dirty Angels MC member and lead singer of Dirty Deeds, has a secret. For years, he's hidden his bisexuality from his brothers, fellow bikers, worried how they'd take the news. But Nash isn't the only one keeping secrets from his brotherhood. So is Cross, a police officer and member of the Blue Avengers MC. As opposite as they come, when Cross spots Nash across the bar, he can't resist the unexpected attraction. Then lines are crossed, boundaries blurred. And they need to survive in two different worlds where men who like other men aren't usually accepted, and where bikers and cops don't mix. Reality and fantasy are two different things. The fantasy being Cross and Nash can be together, that they can make it work. The reality being their situation is impossible. Cross will never give up being a cop. Nash will never give up being a biker. What either of them would have to walk away from is more than anyone should ask for. In the end, fighting reality could be a losing battle in a war they might never win. Note: A standalone, Crossing the Line is a crossover gay romance involving a member of the Dirty Angels MC and one from the Blue Avengers MC. It includes forbidden love, enemies to lovers, cop vs biker, alpha vs alpha. As with all my books, it has no cliffhanger and an HEA.

Guts & Glory: Steel is now up for preorder!
Strength is what we gain from the madness we survive. For Anson "Steel" Sterling, former Marine Raider and current bad boy of the Shadows crew, kicking a** and talking sh*t is all in a day's work. His boxing skills make him lethal in and out of the ring and his mind is just as quick as his fists. When an assignment has him heading out to Nevada, he's prepared for boredom. After all, how hard can protecting one female athlete from a stalker be? Katheryn "Kat" Callahan has one goal, prove to everyone, especially her judgmental father, she can be the best female MMA fighter. She's more than capable of defending herself and doesn't need a hulked-out alpha-hole bodyguard with a sharp tongue and a surly attitude shadowing her every move. With the biggest match of her career right around the corner, one crazy stalker's not going to bring her down. The pint-sized fighter fascinates Steel. With her striking amber eyes and honed physique, the attraction is immediate, but it's her grit and determination that really gets his blood pumping. He's ready to go a few rounds if it means seeing her worked up. But Kat needs to remain focused on her goals and Steel isn't making that easy. Can their mutual passion and stubborn attitudes make them the perfect team? Or will they remain in opposite corners, forever fighting alone? Note: Steel is the fifth book of the Guts & Glory series, a six-book spin-off from my Dirty Angels MC series. While it's recommended to read both series in order, each book can be read as a stand-alone. As with all my books, this has an HEA, no cliffhanger or cheating.
