Burning for You
by KT Grant | Interview

Q: What is the inspiration for your latest release, BURNING FOR YOU?
I love the idea of opposites attracting and thought what would happen if a somewhat older college dean fell for a hotel janitor? Would they be able to connect not just sexually but mentally? The fun was writing these two men and helping them find a common ground together, which leads them to falling...
Desire and Deception
by Sharon Buchbinder | Interview

Q: What inspired this story?
In writing DESIRE AND DECEPTION, I wanted to tell a sexy suspenseful tale about smart, powerful women and the men who love them. I wrote about society's expectations of what a woman should be versus what a woman wants to be. And since the standing advice to writers is to "write what you know," I then...
Forged in Fire
by Sara Brookes | Interview

Q: Now, our interest is piqued and we're excited to learn more! I certainly am! So, what is your Rebirth series all about? What is the common thing that binds all the books in this series?
Basically it all boils down to the age-old struggle of good vs evil. But I take it one step further. After all, who decides good people are good and bad people are bad? The line is easy to blur and my characters sometimes have to step over lines they wouldn't ordinarily. It's necessary to sometimes...
Kiss of Snow
by Nalini Singh | Interview

Q: The Psy-Changeling series is so original. I've never seen anything like it. How did you come up with the idea?
I've always loved shapeshifter stories - but I disagreed with how shifting was often portrayed as a painful or unwanted experience. I thought it would be fantastic to be able to shift into another form! I've also always been interested in psychic abilities like telepathy and psychometry, but one day,...
The Hambledown Dream
by Dean Mayes | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write this story?
THE HAMBLEDOWN DREAM was a simple idea I had about eight years ago when I was working on another, much different story. Back then, it was a "what if?" fable, the notion of a good and kind young man dying but being reincarnated into the body of another young man who is duplicitous and mean. I actually...
Betrayal's Shadow
by KH LeMoyne | Interview

Q: BETRAYAL'S SHADOW looks to be an awesome start to a new series, the Guardians of Eden. What is the series about? What inspired your ideas for this series?
I've often wondered if we humans haven't had help at critical times in our development. Out of those musings the Guardians of Eden was born. They are a race originated in the same Eden as Adam and Eve. They are bound in a covenant to ensure the evolution of mankind, each Guardian child releasing the...
Lifestyles of the Fey and Dangerous
by Danica Avet | Interview

Q: What is the inspiration for The Veil series?
I've always been a "what if" person. What if there were supernatural beings living and working right beside us (being humans for all of you supernatural beings) and we never knew? That's where the idea came from and I sort of just ran with it. Of course, I'm still not convinced that this is fictional....
Light the Fire
by Mary Manners | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write this story?
I have lost a child, and the healing process is long and oh, so difficult, even under the best of circumstances (if there is such a thing). Anyway, I really wanted to delve into the healing process for a young woman in the same situation who feels a tremendous amount of guilt, and bring her healing...
Torn Hearts, A Novel
by CaSondra Poulsen | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write the story of TORN HEARTS?
My grandmother inspired me. TORN HEARTS is dedicated to her. I was fortunate to grow up near her and have countless memories of times spent with her. She has left a lasting impression on me and shaped who I am as a woman. I miss her dearly. She was a fabulous woman. Much of the grandmother in...
by Leslie D. Soule | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write FALLENWOOD?
My stepfather passed away when I was nineteen years old and my mother went crazy and kicked my sisters and I out of the house. It was a very difficult time for me and I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I felt like I was fighting just to keep myself going and keep my head above water. So...
Sculpting David
by Nya Rawlyns | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write SCULPTING DAVID?
My studies and my passions have always revolved around art, theater, and dance. From an early age my mother took me to see Broadway shows. New York City, with its art galleries, museums and cultural events was a mere bus ride away. Throughout my life, my friends have all been associated with the arts--actors,...
Sneakers, Sandals & Stilettoes
by Natasha Deen | Interview

Q: What gave you the inspiration to use these two particular fairy tales: Aladdin, and The Elf and the Shoemaker?
Believe it or not, it was my dogs. We went for a walk (it was spring) and it was just one of those perfect kind of days: sunshine, just the right amount of wind, blue sky...we walked into a pool of light and warmth and at the exact moment I was thinking, "Man, can it get better than this?", Buddy (one...
Glass Angels
by Karen Wiesner | Interview

Q: Congratulations on publishing the fourth book in your Family Heirlooms Series! What's the series about? What's the theme that ties all the books together? What's your inspiration for the series?
Thanks! The premise of my Family Heirlooms Series is how nuggets of faith can be passed down as family heirlooms from parent to child, sibling to sibling, spouse to spouse. Members of the Samuels family are the main characters in each story. Baby, Baby, Book 1, Shadow Boxing, Book 2, and Foolish Games,...

Red's Mate by Carolyn Faulkner
In the aftermath of the wars, pestilence, and famine that devastated the land, mankind – and its genetically superior counterparts – huddled together in what passed for civilization. Small bands of cutthroats and thieves roamed the landscape, although there was the occasional enclave; small villages, some better organized compounds, and even sometimes a decently run city-state, but they were by far the fewest and farthest between. It was in a very tiny village that the Omega Ebby had grown up, surrounded by women who knew what she would become, as well as a few men to whom she was unattractive, all of whom participated in training her to defend herself. They had also all vowed to protect her with their lives. And in the end, because of him, that was exactly what they had done. Ciaran, an Alpha born in one of those more successful city-states, had risen through the ranks of what passed for the Army to command a battalion that combed the wasteland; defeating enemies, making the occasional ally. Their military mission was to collect whatever might benefit them immediately – or the base, when they returned. But he was conducting a mission of his own for that which he had wanted all his life: an Omega on which to breed sons. They had received intelligence that there was something very valuable hidden in a village not far away. And there was. Ebby. Publisher's Note: This steamy, post-apocalyptic romance contains power exchange scenes.
Until Daddy by Measha Stone
Carissa knows the score when it comes to relationships. They don't last. Sure, they're good for some fun in the short term, but that's all. Fun. There shouldn't be any exceptions, not even for Jamison Croft, but he's not an easy man to shake. He blasts through every brick she lays. He may look the gentleman in his expensive suit, but he's anything but when it comes to Carissa. But how can Carissa let herself ease into his dominating presence when she knows it has an expiration date? Jamison is determined to break through her walls with his relentless care and patience. And when their bond is threatened, he will show her he's in it for the long haul. No matter what barrier gets thrown in his way. Publisher's Note: This steamy romance contains elements of power exchange.

However, her father believes Ty Parks, his senior Superintendent, is a better candidate. It doesn't help that Grace finds him so attractive. Ty has worked hard to achieve his position in the company. He's always willing to step up and help. Now he's ready for a new challenge but when he meets the boss's daughter, he gets more than he bargained for. Grace's father makes one final decision that takes both Ty and Grace by surprise. They have no choice but to accept it… unless they are both willing to lose something they love. Publisher's Note: This contemporary romance includes sensual scenes.
Alpha & Omega by Carolyn Faulkner
YOU WILL SUBMIT YOURSELF – YOUR WILL – YOUR ALL – TO ME. YOU WILL SURRENDER. "Most Omegas, he had thought, were of a submissive nature. There was no doubt in his mind—or his body—that she was his rightful mate, but she was almost as far from submissive as he was." Visit the OmegaVerse, described as only Carolyn Faulkner can. Part One: When Emily Harding is released from voluntary stasis, the post-apocalyptic world that greets her is far different from what she left. Raw and unforgiving, Emily will soon learn her place at the hand of the Alpha. Part Two: Tura may not be what Alpha solider Kosh envisioned to be his perfect mate, but he knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is his. He will wear the scar she's given him for the rest of his life, a life he will spend taming her to the hand she's bitten. Contains the full text of "The Alpha's Woman" and "Kosh's Omega" in one volume. Dark themes suitable for mature readers only please.

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. It's going to take more than a village to help the ex-Sheriff save his ranch, his way of life and the family he is willing to risk everything for. As for his own redemption, sometimes it only takes one person to make all the difference. In the shadow of Wyoming's sweeping national grasslands, when history and the present collide, it will take more than a united front to protect an uncertain future where the stakes are high and courage is all a man has left. 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.
