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

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

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.


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!

That's not to say that everything...
Sapphire Blues

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.

A Knight's Love
Fighting alongside his two brothers, Garvin Campbell of Clan Campbell is content to remain in the shadows. After all, he's lived most of his adult life as a Knight Templar, and that requires him being in the shadows, not seen or heard. "Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed Nomini tuo da gloriam; (Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy Name, give glory)." That was the rule of the Templars until they were forced to disband at the request of King Philip IV "the Fair" of France. Many of the Order's members in France were arrested and tortured. However, Scotland did not get involved in the arrests and prosecution of the Knights. There was no recognized king of the Scots, and with the Bruce having already been excommunicated, the Roman church had little say in Scottish politics, so Garvin returned to his clan to use his skills in the fight against the English for Scottish independence. Having been told all her life to avoid the Campbells, the last thing Lady Helen is thinking about is falling in love with a Campbell, and a Knight Templar at that. She is aware the Templar Knight has taken a vow of abstinence, so when Garvin Campbell comes to her clan to deliver the decree from Robert the Bruce, Helen is unprepared for the connection she immediately feels for the knight. She dismisses it as butterflies at meeting a knight, but fate has other plans for her and Garvin, as he becomes her reason for living and he forgoes his training of remaining in the shadows as he surrenders to love.
