Strings Attached
by Anne Holly | Interview

Q: Where did you get the idea for STRINGS ATTACHED?
I wrote the original draft of Strings Attached back in 2000 or 2001, I think, so it's difficult to remember what all went into it. I do know that certain elements involving Katie's death were inspired by real life events in the news at the time, though not exactly. I was also passionate about animal...
Eulogy's Secret
by Grace Elliot | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for EULOGY'S SECRET?
The idea for Eulogy's Secret came from a poster on the London Underground.

I was taking my sons to the theatre when through the dirty glass I glimpsed a poster for a memorial concert at the Royal Albert Hall. One word on that poster stuck in my mind - "eulogy".

It struck me that eulogy would...

Ruined
by Kinley Baker | Interview

Q: What was your inspiration for writing RUINED?
I wrote RUINED because I wanted to create a mystical realm full of magic and shadows. I envisioned a picture of an enchanting castle with a beautiful and sacred power source hidden in its depths. Romancing the mystery of shadows became a little bit of an obsession, which is where the idea of shifting...
Tides of Passion
by Tracy Sumner | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write TIDES OF PASSION?
Well, I was very inspired to write TIDES OF LOVE. It's a bit of an unusual romance -- about a marine biologist in 1898. I based the locale on Beaufort, NC (Outer Banks) and the second marine biology lab, after Woods Hole, built in the US. I have a thing for sexy, nerdy heros. Anyway, once I started...
Always Her Cowboy
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: ALWAYS HER COWBOY was set on a ranch in Wyoming. This is much different than the L.A. setting of other books in the Search for Love Series. What was your motivation behind the change in scenery?
When I planned the Search For Love series with both revised and updated titles as well as new books, I decided to try to please a variety of readers. Each is a different type of romance. Many of my readers like "cowboy" books. I am always challenged to find a new twist to life on a ranch. I truly love...
The Chameleon Goggles
by Maureen O. Betita | Interview

Q: The world you've created in the Kraken's Caribbean in amazing. Please tell us more about this fantastic world you've created.
Well, this isn't your everyday Tortuga! My island sits at a crossroads for alternate worlds and times. Anyone might drop in. The only thing keeping the world from being overrun is the Great Albino Kraken and the magic workers. They work together to make certain no weapons of mass destruction come through,...
Destiny Redeemed
by Gabrielle Bisset | Interview

Q: The world of the Aeverens is extremely unique. Please give us some more information about these interesting people.
Aeveren are descended from humans and their physiology is exactly like humans. Long ago, the Archangel Raziel saw people who practiced alchemy and mysticism and were persecuted for the very arts he represented. Full of sympathy for them, he rescued them from the attacks and bestowed upon them gifts...
Nathan's Vow
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: NATHAN'S VOW is a unique story about a man, Nathan, who turns to a psychic, Gillian, to help him find his missing daughters and they end up falling in love. I thought that it was a very unique storyline. How did you come up with the idea?
Life energy fascinates me. Energy surrounds us all the time. For years, because of physical problems, I've turned to acupuncture, cranial-sacral work and guided imagery. I know first-hand the healing power of all of those therapies based on and managing life energy. I've also learned about the mind-body...
The Pet Shop
by K D Grace | Interview

Q: First of all, I have to say that the premise for THE PET SHOP is wonderfully unique. Where did you come up with such an original idea?
I love to play around with fairy tales and myths. THE PET SHOP is a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Instead of the beast being openly wild and dangerous our beast, Tino, is a human Pet. But he's a Pet who's anything but tame. What actually gave me the original idea was watching the way people...
ALTERANT
by Sherrilyn Kenyon; Dianna Love | Interview

Q: What is the inspiration for the Belador series?
I have always been fascinated by the unusual and supernatural. About seven years back, I started thinking, "what if gods and goddesses from different mythologies bumped into each other and had a dispute - who would win?" I'm also a huge suspense fan so anything I'm involved with will have a suspense...
Once Upon a Groom
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: Please tell us more about the Reunion Brides series.
ONCE UPON A GROOM is officially scheduled as a October release but it was available on September 20 in print form, e-book is October 1. And, yes, it is the next book, book 2, in my REUNION BRIDES series. The series revolves around a fifteenth year high school reunion in Miners Bluff, Arizona. Sparks...
Brightarrow Burning
by Isabo Kelly | Interview

Q: What inspired this story?
I was asked by an editor if I could give her a short story proposal to substitute into an anthology if the proposed stories for the anthology didn't come through. In the end they all did, but by that time, I'd come up with the very basic idea for this story. The initial spark came in the form of the...
Lucky Charm
by Marie Astor | Interview

Q: What is the inspiration for LUCKY CHARM?
Romance is such a big part of women's lives - we spend so much time dreaming and worrying about finding that special someone, but when things do not go exactly as planned, we rely on our friends to help us through the tough times. I knew that I wanted to write a fun contemporary romance about the magical...
Riley's Journey

Her journey will take her into a world fraught with dangers—a world made more treacherous by savage beasts, primitive Neanderthals, and the incursion of the aggressive Cro-Magnon man.
Mystic Mountains (Settlers Book 1)
5 stars AN AMAZING READ BY KC Booklover "I love any books to do with people travelling to Australia in the 1800s, whether it be as emigrants or convicts, and this book doesn't disappoint. I was hooked within the first few pages and couldn't wait to finish it to see what happened. The story of Isabella who is transported to Australia after trying to kill the man who rapes her was a powerful one and one that was probably pretty common for the time. This is a fantastic read and I am so glad there is a sequel so I can find out what happens! Highly recommended."
Distant Mountains (Settlers Book 2)
I am a fan of talented author, Tricia McGill. She has dedicated her series The Settlers, ‘to the magnificent pioneer women who battled alongside their men to open new frontiers. The book was inspired by letters sent home to England from Australian women, who were often torn away from the family and homeland they loved, but faced every struggle with strength and fortitude… What must it have been like traipsing after your menfolk to settle in unknown parts, often over miles of dangerous territory?' Remy and Sara the main characters, and all the other characters, some of whom appeared in Mystic Mountains, spring to life from the page, and I can visualise the places the author describes. Rich in historical detail, Ms McGill does not hesitate to show the brutality convicts suffered. Remy a convict and Sara, whose father is a wealthy, insensitive bully, seem to be a pair of tender star-crossed lovers. There are many twists and turns in this fascinating romance, which includes an arranged marriage, a woman sold to an uncouth man by her parents, bushrangers, kidnap and much more. I look forward to reading Challenging Mountains
Challenging Mountains (Settlers Book 3)
5 stars Diane Scott Lewis "Exciting Australian Adventure" Set in 1840s Australia, a land fraught with hardship, Ms. McGill writes a well-researched story of adventure and romance. Jo and Tim forge a life in this wild land, overcome many dangers as the author weaves in the settling of New South Wales. I enjoyed learning about the history of Australia. This is book three of the Settlers series but can be read as a stand-alone.

Decision (Diversion 8)
Decision (Diversion 8) is now available for preorder at Amazon, releasing March 1. Follow the law, or follow their hearts? By-the-book Bo Schollenberger's training to be the new boss at the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. He's always been the moral compass for his partner Lucky Lucklighter, or Simon Harrison, or whatever-the-hell his name is this week. Lucky might have read the book, or parts of it, but toes the line between legal and… not so legal. A little moral elasticity lets him out-maneuver the bad guys. It's not broke, why fix it? They butt heads at work, but they're rock solid at home, where their biggest concern is when, or if, they'll become parents. Their latest case puts them in a tailspin when drugs flood a local high school and someone hands Lucky's nephew a vial of pills like they were candy. Unravelling the drug ring leads them straight into a nest of human trafficking, way outside the jurisdiction of the SNB, but no way could Bo and Lucky let the perpetrators leave Atlanta scot-free. No one gets away with harming innocents, especially family. The letter of the law says to trust the legal system, but doing the right thing might lead them outside the lines. Especially when the youngest trafficking victim lands squarely in Bo's lap.
