Finding Matt
by JD Ruskin | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for FINDING MATT? N:
Jaron Greenberg's Newfoundland dog, Bear, was inspired by my childhood dog. Bear's fearlessness and protective nature are a nod to my very first dog.

Bronze Fox
by Diana Green | Interview

Q: Where did you get the inspiration for your Rifters series? What is the significance of the series title? How are the books tied together?N:
As sometimes happens with me, the initial inspiration came from an amazing dream. I woke after dreaming the opening scenes of BRONZE FOX and just had to write them down. They were so vivid and intriguing, I couldn't help adding more. That was the seed for the first novel, and then ideas for a whole series...
Brooke: Wagers Gone Awry
by Collette Cameron | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper series? How are the books tied together?N:

I wanted to write a series that showed the unique bond between sisters and cousins, but also allowed me to have free rein with my quirky...
Time Eternal
by Lily Morgan | Interview

Q: What inspired the Time Series? What is it about?N:
My inspirations come from different places--my work, my friends, things I've read, things that I've loved since I was a little girl, especially things that are very different from my day job.

After being an avid romance novel reader for many years, I've started having an itch, needing to create...

Saving Their Princess
by TL Reeve | Interview

Q: SAVING THEIR PRINCESS is book #10 in the Beyond Fairytales series. Please give us an overview of the series, and the inspiration for its conception. N:
Okay, a quick run of the series is simple. There is a storyteller, Nicodemus, who for a gold coin will tell you a story. Those are the fairytales we create, but they're not the fairytales you or I read as a child. No, these are souped up retellings made for adults. Check out the Beyond Fairytale Blog...

Dragon Wife
by Diana Green | Interview

Q: What is your inspiration for DRAGON WIFE?
The inspiration for this novel came directly from an amazingly vivid dream. In it, I experienced living in a medieval other-world where dragons had just woken from centuries of enchanted sleep. The hero and heroine were already there, fully-formed, as was my sense of their dynamic relationship.

When...

Love Aced
by Jamie W. Matlock | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for this story?
I'm an avid sports fan--tennis, football, hockey, auto racing. You name it and I probably follow it! I've always enjoyed infusing sports into my stories (And it doesn't hurt that most athletes are in the best shape of their lives, making for sexy leading men and ladies!). That's not to say that everything...
Sapphire Blues
by JC Wardon | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for the series? What is the central theme that holds all the books together?
This thirteen book series actually began as a single story. One book. But there are three mystical identical sisters who are descended of a three thousand year old line they can trace, and a curse all have lived under all those millennia. So Mystic Thunder became the first of a trilogy that includes...

Prymal Lust
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: Please tell us more about the PRYMAL series. What is your inspiration for this series?
A nightmare *nodding convincingly*--cross my heart, yada, yada.

Ever have one of those awful dreams where you're trapped that repeats and repeats no matter how hard you try to change the ending or wake up? I had been reading three genres at once: a Regency, a shifter, and a SEAL suspense.

(watch Me) Break You
Here comes trouble… Men. Women. Drugs. Dima Zhirkov's favorite things. Add in the element of danger and he should be right as rain. But not today. It's not working, hasn't for a long time. He's grasping at the flimsiest of straws to prove he's indeed strong enough to run his streets. Until he sets eyes on him. In the midst of a room full of strangers, Dima is drawn to a man as cold and dangerous as he's beautiful. Captivated, Dima embarks on a ruthless campaign to get his new toy into bed. Here comes the danger… Xavier "X" Storm is content to pull the strings while someone else handles the day to day dealings of his gang, The Rude Boys. He's after what Dima holds closest—the Coney Island streets. He contracts out the job of killing the Russian, except Dima isn't that easy to kill. When he suddenly shows up in X's path, tempting him to indulge in the dirtiest play, he finds Dima isn't all that easy to shake, either. His cocky attitude and rough submission tempts X to go where he'd vowed to never return, and they plunge head first into an affair fueled by possessive obsession. Run for cover Sex and pain Dima can handle, and X delivers the most depraved kind. Their connection is explosive, their games addictive, but Dima can end it whenever he wishes. He doesn't see that X is breaking him down, giving Dima everything he wants and even more than he ever thought to need. By the time he realizes who X is and what he wants, Dima is raw and bullet riddled. It's run or fight. And Dima doesn't back down. Neither does X.
(watch Me) Body You
What if loving him… After recent events that had his life flashing before his eyes, Israel Storm is re-evaluating everything. His friends. His priorities. What's not going to change is the deep connection he's developed with Reggie Turner. They're comfortable with each other, partners in crime with no qualms about sharing women. Whatever Is needs, Reggie is the one he calls. Their bond can survive anything. But maybe not the kiss Reggie plants on him out of nowhere. …Means losing him? Despite what Is thinks, that kiss came from somewhere. An un-named current has been flowing between them for months. Reggie doesn't bat for his own team, but the more time he spends with Is, seeing past the rough façade of the man leading The Rude Boys, the more Reggie loses sight of labels and where he fits. All he knows is there's something there, something Is will never acknowledge. One kiss leads to a punch that lands Reggie in the ER, and sends Is digging through his darkest memories in search of himself. Friendship is all that's left if they bury the truth. If they ignore the pull that makes it impossible to do anything other than fight each other. But denials can be exhausting and hiding isn't working, not when everyone can clearly see your heart's desire. An enemy is out to make an example of Is, and his weapon of choice will leave this Rude Boy bloodied…and bodied.
