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...
Fallenwood
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,...
ACE

He Kidnapped the Wrong Woman
...She stole his heart. Get intimate with history as you enjoy Anna Markland's latest medieval romp. Dieter Von Wolfenberg burns to rid his Saxon homeland of the tyrannical Holy Roman Emperor. A plot to kidnap the Emperor's wife goes awry and her English lady in waiting is stolen away instead. When the daughter of King Henry I is betrothed to the Holy Roman Emperor, Blythe FitzRam is forced to travel to the foreign court to serve her mistress. Isolated and disdainful of all things German, she is nevertheless drawn to her captor.
Guts & Glory: Steel (In the Shadows Security, bk 5)
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.
Dingo (Devils' Fury MC)
You've met the Devil's Fury before. In fact, we caught a glimpse of Dingo when he went to see his sister, Jordan, at the Devil's Boneyard MC. Now it's time to watch him fall ... Meiling – All I've ever known was pain. My life has been far from a fairytale. No parents. No friends. Just an endless nightmare that I can't wake from. Until the day a man offered me his hand and promised to keep me safe. I've never trusted anyone before, but there's something about him. Maybe it's insane, but I know he won't hurt me, and when he puts his arms around me, for the first time in my life I feel loved. Dingo – I've always had a soft spot for women and kids in trouble. One look at Meiling, and I knew I had to protect her at any cost. The beautiful girl with the wounded soul. After all she's suffered, all I want is to make her smile, make her feel secure, and give her a chance to find happiness. But first, I need to take out the men and women responsible for hurting her. It might get ugly, and messy, but they don't call me Dingo for nothing. I'm a crazy bastard and I won't stop until she's safe. I just didn't count on falling for her along the way. Warning: Meiling's past isn't pretty. Dingo and Meiling's story deals with issues of human trafficking, bureaucratic corruption, and vigilante justice. This book contains darker themes that may trigger some readers.
Ashes (Devil's Boneyard MC)
Nikki – Being tortured and watching the father of my child die has scarred me. There are deep wounds etched into my soul that no one can possibly understand. They think I loved him, that I'm mourning, but I'm not. The horror of that day lurks in the shadows of my mind, and I can't seem to break free. Not until Ashes drags me to my first ultrasound and I see my son for the first time. I owe it to him to do better, but it's too late. I've lost my job, and I'm losing my apartment. I should have known Ashes would swoop in like a knight on his shining Harley to save the day. Ashes – It's my fault that Nikki lost Bane, that their kid will grow up without a dad. My cousin is responsible for what happened to them, and I can't undo that pain. So instead, I take care of Nikki the best I can while trying to maintain some distance between us. I've loved her for years, but I can never tell her. Renegade, the Road Captain for my club and her brother, would kill me if he knew that Nikki plagues my thoughts day and night. I never counted on taking her home with me, or getting caught in the shower with her. But our happy-ever-after wasn't quite in reach. When a series of events nearly tears us apart, I vow that I'll do whatever it takes to get back to her. It never occurred to me that she'd be the one to save me.

FOR THE LOVE OF HAWTHORNE
I've always loved Hawthorne's stories but never knew what demons he carried around--shame from his family's connection to the Salem Witch Trials--which greatly influenced his writings. His courtship of Sophia Peabody lasted over three years because he insisted on keeping it secret. He had his reasons, none of which Sophia agreed with. But she knew they were destined for each other and he was worth the wait. When they married in 1842 "we became Adam and Eve alone in our Garden of Even" she wrote in her journal. But not all was paradise in their Eden—Nathaniel bore a burden that plagued his family since 1692. His ancestor Judge Hathorne condemned nineteen innocent victims to death during the Salem witch trials. In her last moments on earth, Sarah Good cursed the judge and his descendants from the hanging tree. Nathaniel's belief in this curse haunted and tormented him until Sophia made it her quest to save him.
