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...
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...
When the Roommate Comes Home Early
Ben Castillo was every woman's fantasy. More precisely, Faith O'Leary's fantasy. Tall, broad, and oh-so handsome, he had a deep voice, and big hands, and the best part of all – he was just as kinky as the rumors suggested. Even kinkier. When he agreed to help Faith explore her submissive nature, she mistakenly thought her biggest obstacle would be in getting Ben to believe her when she said she wasn't going to walk away after his tutelage was over. Instead she finds herself facing the scorn of their conservative community when it's discovered that their relationship also included time spent with his cute roommate Colby. Ben was convinced his time with Faith was limited, and she'd move on to someone closer to her own age and settle down once she had her fun. The vicious gossip going around town is a sign for him to walk away from the woman he's come to love, but Colby thinks Ben's a fool, and will do whatever he can to ensure a happy ending. For all of them.

The Two Week Stand
From NYT bestselling author Samantha Towle comes a sizzling beach romance, that will leave you hot in all the right places… Dillon Dawson loves to write romance despite her latest relationship ending with her traveling to the Maldives alone on what was supposed to be her honeymoon. Now, the only thing she wants is two weeks of uninterrupted peace and quiet with absolutely no men in sight. West Oakley doesn't even believe that romance exists, and he has no desire to convince himself otherwise. The only reason he's heading to the Maldives is to escape a scandal and spend time on an island where no one knows who he is. But plans change, and when West takes one look at Dillon, another idea forms in his mind—a no-strings two-week stand. Even though Dillon knows their sexual chemistry is explosive, her romantic heart is torn. Can she really spend fourteen nights in the arms of a god like West, making all of her fantasies come true, only to walk away at the end of it? Or can Dillon turn this two-week stand into more than an unexpected holiday fling, convincing West that romance does exist after all?
