by Teri Riggs | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Heaven's Beach Love Story series? How are the books tied together?

Special Delivery
by Laura Browning | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Mountain Meadow Homecomings series? How are the books tied together? N:
My inspiration rarely comes from any one thing. In this case, part of it grew from passing through the community of Meadows of Dan, Virginia while traveling to visit my mother. I do a lot of thinking while I drive in order to keep myself awake. This particular area is very picturesque and started me...
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 have three sisters and two first cousins I'm very close to. In fact, my cousin was my best friend from the time we were both babies until she died of brain cancer. 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...

Prymal Passion
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: Which is titled PRYMAL PASSION. What has the series arc been so far? What's happened by now in the Prymal world?

In Prymal Passion we get the first hint of what the enemy, the Jaeger, looks like. I don't want to spoil the surprise, so I'm not going to go into detail about that revelation.

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...
Prymal Obsession
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: Which is entitled PRYMAL OBSESSION. How are the books interconnected? Do you have an overall series arc?
For those who don't know the premise of the Prymal Series, here's a summary:

The primal call of Mate Claim sparks battle among the three species of shifters--Wylfen, Feral, and Rogue--and has for generations. These violent feuds incite hunts by humankind, driving shifters near extinction.

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! 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...

Fur Ball Fever
An impulsive pet spa owner who loses her client's prize pooch ... After a lifetime of impetuous mistakes, Jersey Shore pet spa owner Grace Donnelly outdoes herself when a client's prize poodle, a shoo-in to win the annual Fur Ball, goes AWOL while in her custody. With money, careers, and lives in jeopardy, Grace is not afraid to strap on the leather to go undercover in a fetish club looking for clues. Too bad her helpers consist of an aging hippie aunt, a renegade schnauzer, a drag queen, and a dominatrix or two. Worst of all, the only man truly qualified to help is her former flame, the most domineering male on the eastern seaboard. A smokin' hot bodyguard with his own agenda ... Texas-born security specialist Nick Jackson faces his worst nightmare when Grace's amateur investigation nearly blows his covert operation. Unless he nails the con-artist who scammed his home-town's seniors and whacked a witness, his homicidal granddaddy will take justice into his own liver-spotted hands. To salvage his case, his sanity, and his ex-lover's velvety skin, Nick joins forces with the sassy crusader who rubs him the wrong way--and so many right ways too. Together, they weather an explosion of murder, mayhem, and mystery ... Action bounces from the upscale Shore community of Saltwater Estates to a beach harboring washed-up corpses, a fancy yacht no honest preacher could possibly afford, and the bawdiest nightclub in Atlantic City. Hazards multiply like bunnies, culminating in fun, romance, danger, suspense, a second chance at love ... and a Fur Ball extravaganza the locals will never forget.

An event planner with big secrets will do anything escape her past: A job as event planner offers former mortician and single mom, Katie Deluca, her last chance to escape her past. Turns out party planning is more difficult than organizing funerals, especially when her criminal stalker appeals his murder conviction. Plus her new boss, although perfect for awakening her sensuality, couldn't be more wrong for the stability she craves for her son. Forced to collaborate, they overcome obstacles, fight crime, and find love: Turns out Katie is the one person who can salvage Kinki—and heal Sam's emotional wounds. Fighting their growing attraction, the couple tangles with vandalism, a goofy dog, ruthless thugs, a building inspector on the warpath, exploding trucks, an eccentric granddaddy, disappearing corpses, an unfortunate synchronized swimming episode, and the threat of live cremation, all to deliver a grand opening the vampire wannabes of Atlantic City will never forget. ★★★★★ "the perfect blend of romance, comedy and mystery." ★★★★★ "a wonderful hilarious comedy … a warm & enjoyable read"
