Romancing the Countess
by Ashley March | Interview

Q: ROMANCING THE COUNTESS is a truly unique and fabulous story by the fact that your hero and heroine were both tragically betrayed in their first marriages and had to see if they could take another chance on love with each other. Where did the idea or the inspiration come from to write this story about such an unusual couple?
I'm so glad you enjoyed the storyline! I would love to give you a truly romantic answer about getting the idea for ROMANCING THE COUNTESS one day on a trip to Paris, but the truth is I've never been to Paris (yet!), and I actually had the idea for such a concept a few years ago when I was working a...
by Margaret Ethridge | Interview

Q: We're so glad you can make it, because we'd love to talk about this unique concept. A series that look at After Happily Ever! What inspired this particular series of books?
After Happily Ever is a new line created by Turquoise Morning Press to feature stories that take place after a couple rides off into the sunset. In other words, they are not your typical romance novels. I was very excited that CONTENTMENT was chosen to be the debut title for the AHE line because I believe...
The Empire
by Elizabeth Lang | Interview

Q: What is the inspiration for THE EMPIRE, the first in a trilogy?
My inspiration was the characters. I had been writing some short stories with this cast and I was having so much fun that I decided to expand them into a proper story.

The storyline came from a desire to explore the issue of the ends justifying the means and looking at it from various angles. In...

Running in Fear: Dragon's Den
by Trinity Blacio | Interview

Q: RUNNING IN FEAR: DRAGON'S DEN is book five in the Running in Fear Series. How did you come up with the concept for the series?
At first I had three books in my mind, but after, the three other characters kept popping up in my head. My fans kept asking for more stories and a greater plot formed to connect the other stories that wanted to be brought to life. So, for right now, I have at least three more planned maybe more, and...
His Country Cinderella
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: What inspired the series Montana Mavericks: Here Come the Texans series? What is the unifying theme?
The Montana Mavericks is a continuity series that is added to year after year. Harlequin comes up with the basic thread that weaves throughout all the books, the type of hero and heroine for each plot and a short summary of the kind of plot they'd like to see. Each author in the series creates a plot...
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: DEVIANT DEVIL is quite the action-packed romantic suspense. What kind of research goes into planning those complicated ops you had in the story?
A ton - but it was so much fun. I purchased the Navy SEALS BUD/s Class 234 DVD and watched that a bunch of times--incredible and fascinating to see what these warriors must do to earn that trident. I read the following books:

The Warrior Elite - The Forging of SEAL class 228

Team Secrets of The...

One Good Reason
by Sarah Mayberry | Interview

Q: We know that heroine Gabby is Tyler's ex-girlfriend (from the previous book, The Last Goodbye) and hero Jon is Tyler's brother, but what gave you the inspiration to put these two characters together?
When I was writing the first scene with Gabby in TLG, even though I hadn't planned it when I outlined the book, I decided she should be Tyler's ex-girlfriend. I thought it would help shed light on his intimacy issues as well as give him a confidante. The more I wrote, however, the more I liked Gabby....
Shinobi, Book One: Concealed in Shadows
by Sessha Batto | Interview

Q: From where did you draw the inspiration for the Shinobi series?
I've studied martial arts and swordsmanship for many years, and I've always been intrigued by the conflict inherent in the martial code of honor. To me, ninja are the epitome of this conflict, assassins and spies who are loyal to their clans to the death. Trained to set aside their emotions, yet carrying...
A Fateful Wind
by Suzette Stone | Interview

Q: Where did you draw inspiration for A FATEFUL WIND?
I grew up in a tiny village on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, UK. As a child we would play around a defunct tin mine - dangerous I know - and I was always intrigued by the stories I would hear of miners leaving behind their families to seek their fortunes in Australia, America and Mexico. The village I lived...
Strong Arms of the Law
by Cerise DeLand | Interview

Q: STRONG ARMS OF THE LAW is a VERY hot read. There's no question about that, but it also has a great plot and interesting story. How did you come up with the idea for it?
Since moving to Texas, I have learned so much about this state and the people who live here. Because I grew up and lived always in large cities on the East Coast of the States as well as in Japan, I came to Texas very green about the West. But once here, I loved it. The people are innately funny. You...
Where There's Smoke
by Erosa Knowles | Interview

Q: What's this series all about? Please give us an overview. What is the central theme that binds all the books together?
The Men of 3X Construction series deals with life after prison, and how three men turned their lives around by taking classes in Michigan's Prison Build program. These men overcome great odds to own and operate a successful business, but someone is trying to ruin all their hard work. Each partner deals...
by LJ DeLeon | Interview

Q: What is your Warriors for Light series all about? What is the common thing that binds all the books in this series?
The books in the series are about the eternal battle between good and evil, how most times life and the choices offered are shades of gray, and in each story how the brightest light, the one thing that heals wounds to the soul, is love. Without love, lust for power flourishes. With love, darkness is...
Witches of East End
by Melissa De La Cruz | Interview

Q: You made your name as a Young Adult books author, so what gave you the inspiration to write a series for adults? Where did the inspiration for WITCHES OF EAST END come from?
I wanted to write about a family of women, I wanted to write about sisters, about having a complicated relationship with your mother, and once I realized it was very girl-centric, of course they had to be witches. I did some research on Gardiner Island, which is the oldest independently owned property...

Thunder Basin (A Snowy Range Novel)
Glenn Hawley is care-worn and just plain wore out. He gave up a law enforcement career to save his family, only to find himself on the wrong side of progress and teetering on bankruptcy. He needs a reason to get up in the morning… a reason to fight. The old saw—be careful what you wish for— comes home to roost when the fight lands on his doorstep in a hail of bullets. Unable to escape his past mistakes, and with the consequences of bad luck and poor choices closing in from every side, everything Glenn Hawley cares about is in jeopardy.

As for his own redemption, sometimes it only takes one person to make all the difference.

THUNDER BASIN explores one man's search for redemption and second chances. It is a character study in a contemporary western mystery-suspense setting, and includes a dollop of MF romance, high action and humor.

Brand new and free in KU! She's as headstrong as any filly he's ever broken, but soon she'll call him daddy. Sam Cooper needs a capable hand for his working farm and trail trekking business, not a spoiled city girl who doesn't know a horse from a hamster. Instead, he finds himself saddled with a mouthy, disobedient little spitfire in desperate need of his firm hand applied to her bare bottom. When she fled Christchurch in the aftermath of a deadly earthquake, Marnie Sawyer figured anywhere would be better than the broken city, until she ended up under the roof--and over the knee--of a man every bit as rugged as the alpine wilderness in which he makes his home. Marnie isn't sure what is more shocking, Sam's willingness to scold and spank her like a little girl, or the way her body responds when he takes her in his arms and makes her his own. But leaving isn't an option, and though it makes her blush to admit it, she needs a daddy who isn't afraid to use his whip to break her in and teach her what it means to belong to him completely.
