Malice Striker
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: Let's start with the easy stuff. Where did you get the idea for the Viking Vengeance series?
Believe it or not, I had a dream about the beginning of MALICE STRIKER. I am more and more amazed that women back then not only survived forced marriages, but made them work. But often, women were taken for hostages and affections developed between captives and prisoner. Thus, MALICE STRIKER and Viking...
Tirzah's Allure
by Gabriella Bradley | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write the story TIRZAH'S ALLURE?
I write whatever the muse puts into my mind.

Commitment
by Margaret Ethridge | Interview

Q: Thanks, Margaret! We've got great authors and readers, who are happy to celebrate romance with us. *grin* So, what gave you the inspiration for COMMITMENT?
Maggie and Tom were characters I introduced in the first novel I'd ever written, Contentment, and they just leaped right off the page into my lap. I knew before I even finished the first book that I would write their story. Maggie is an amalgamation of all my girlfriends. I took bits and pieces from...
Sonata
by Blair McDowell | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for SONATA?
I wanted to set a story in Vancouver, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and one I am fortunate to live near. Once I chose the setting, the characters suggested themselves. The beautiful Japanese-Canadian heroine; Michael Donovan, the steady as a rock police detective who loves her; her...
Full Disclosure
by Tibby Armstrong | Interview

Q: Where did you get the inspiration for the entire Hollywood series? How are the three books connected? Understand that while Greg and Aaron are the main characters for the first and third book, Jeremy and Kit are the main characters for the second book.
The Hollywood series actually started off as a completely different story. An M/F romance in fact! While the hero (Greg) and heroine (Callie) wouldn't speak to one another, Greg's interactions with his best friend (Aaron) were burning up the page. There was sexual chemistry there while writing a M/M...
Craving
by KC Burn | Interview

Q: CRAVING is the third book in the MIA Case Files series. Please give us a little background on the series as a whole.
To paraphrase Carmichael from the first book in the series, MIA is a secret government agency that investigates dangerous paranormal activity caused by the thinning of barriers between worlds, and shuts it down. The paranormal activity in question is a type of possession/infection where humans become...
Abigail and Mistletoe
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: Karen, once again, I'm taken by the originality of your story. You've got an unlikely hero and heroine in Brady and Abigail. He's a retired stuntman who is looking to get out of the limelight and she's a cosmetologist helping burn and accident victims who likes to be around people. How did you come up with the idea for the ABIGAIL AND MISTLETOE?
I always try to pick complementary conflicts so that my characters have conflicting goals. Because of Abigail's profession, she doesn't want to see anyone get hurt...or scarred...or experience trauma. Brady's former life is possibly all about that and his future decisions, too. So this conflict will...
The Doctor and the War Widow
by Viola Russell | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for THE DOCTOR AND THE WAR WIDOW?
My travels inspired me to write the novel. I love London and Liverpool, two cities that played major roles in the book. I've travelled there several times. London is an extremely exciting city--steeped in history and filled with vibrant night life. I first went to Liverpool after my mother died....
Alpha Me Not
by Jianne Carlo | Interview

Q: Where did you get the idea for the White Wolf Series?
It was actually a given. I had just published my first book, Manacled in Monaco, and I received an email from Treva, a member of the 'QUAD' - the founders of Loose-Id, inviting me to contribute to their four year anniversary.

Honestly, I thought it was a joke, and forwarded the email to my editor...

Meant To Be
by Karen Stivali | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for MEANT TO BE?
I was thinking about how people change over time and drift in and out of one another's lives. I'd read the saying "people come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime" and I realized that you never really know who's there for which of those purposes. People you think will be in your life...
Mark of the Witch
by Maggie Shayne | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write The Portal series? Please tell us a little about the series.
I've been studying the ways of magic for almost twenty years. Witchcraft, folk magic, tarot reading, Reiki healing, superstitions, spells, law of attraction, the unexplained, all these things have always fascinated me. My love for ancient history, particularly the ancient near east (Mesopotamia) is...
Giving It Up
by Amber Lin | Interview

Q: Where did you get the idea for GIVING IT UP?
I love to read--romance, of course. One thing I noticed was a heavy emphasis on virgins or female chastity. I saw author Cecilia Grant describe it as the fetishization of female innocence. This makes sense in the context of a historical where the times were different, but I saw it in contemporary books,...
Lena's Happily Ever After
by Dixie Lynn Dwyer | Interview

Q: What gave you the inspiration for The Town of Pearl series?
I had written the Town Of Pearl Series with the original intention of having one book, Anna's story. However, the response was so positive and many readers insisted on wanting to know Stacy's story (A character in Anna's book) that I needed to continue. Upon doing so I began to really fall in love with...
A THORNED ROSE IN THE SAND - an Erotic Multicultural Romance
When life in a big U.S. city becomes too much, Stevie Jones decides to live her wildest dream--compete against the tough guys in a motorcycle rally across Morocco. But the real excitement is found away from the race track, in the shifting sands of the desert. After his studies in London, Ragab has returned to the nomadic lifestyle of his Bedouin family and the majestic silence of the Sahara. He dreams of the perfect wife, until a beautiful but feisty biker stuck in a sand dune turns his quiet world upside down.
Her Billionaire Stepbrother's Baby
Lily Duvall has lusted after her stepbrother from the first moment she met him. Tied to him in ways he can never know, if she can't be with him, she is destined to be alone. But after a drunk at the pub tries to drag her into an alley and Camdan is forced to save her, he's faced with the truth of their relationship. Once Cam knows she's his, he'll stop at nothing to possess her.
The Redemption of the Shrew
Nothing is more painful than rejection—particularly when completely naked. Gloriana Warren doesn't want to wait for marriage. Beneath her shrewish exterior is a kindhearted woman who uses her fortune for good. It doesn't matter that the man she's set her sights on claims impoverishment. She's in love and determined to marry him. But her attempt at a moonlight seduction ends in disaster. French marquis Philippe de Bellechasse has had it up to his gorgeous dark eyes with being pursued by lusty ladies. His escape to England from the violence of the French Revolution took a toll on his finances as well. Gloriana may be gloriously naked, but he's just not ready to submit to her seduction. But when a precious family artifact is stolen, Philippe must convince Gloriana he's not the guilty party. He'll steal it back for her, but on his terms. Gloriana, believing he despises her, has plans of her own. Working at odds is dangerous, but working together can be more so. Is Philippe willing to risk his heart again for a deliciously tempting shrew?
Blind Passion
Attraction for Adam was not a handsome face, a striking smile, or beautiful eyes, but a scent that would drive him to distraction or a voice that could make his heart beat faster. When the combination of the two walked into his life in Luke, Adam couldn't help but want him. But how was he supposed to know if Luke felt the same attraction? He had no prior experience, no past encounters, nothing to help him. Not even his sight. One look at Adam and Luke wanted him. Sensual, gorgeous, kind, with a strength that Luke was drawn to, Adam was everything Luke desired. Being in Adam's arms, showing him the pleasure of a man's body, being touched, held, and desired in return, had Luke wanting more, had him wanting what he knew he couldn't have. It didn't matter to him that Adam was blind, but Adam deserved more than someone like him. Luke was a man with a broken past and falling in love with Adam was a foolish thing to do, especially because Adam would never love him back if he found out what Luke was hiding. This is a stand-alone M/M romance with a HEA and no cliffhangers.
Ryker (Roosters series)
Ryker: After 20 years in the military, I find myself doing my dad's dirty work. But as the "prince" of the Hades Abyss MC, it's expected of me. Doing a little recon in a small Alabama town should have been boring as shit, until the hot little minx I met at a bar turned my life upside down. Women always fall at my feet, but this one was different. If I'd known she was a virgin, I might have backed away, but now that I've had a taste I just want to keep coming back for more. Little did I realize that I'd just fucked the sister of a Dixie Reaper, and my life was about to become all kinds of complicated. I had to wonder… had she fucked me because she wanted me? Or was it all some kind of setup? Laken: My big brother Flicker is always ruining my fun, keeping the guys away from me, so when I finally get a chance for a hot guy to get rid of my V-card, I'm all for it. Ryker's hot and has that alpha vibe, and the fact he's ex-military just made me wetter. It never occurred to me that he was a biker, or that I might have just screwed up a big deal for the Dixie Reapers. It seems my sexy Ryker isn't just some hot military guy. No, he's the son of the President of the Hades Abyss MC. So I hide like big brother asks me to. Just one problem… Ryker doesn't leave, and now I'm late. How am I supposed to tell Ryker that I'm carrying his child? When life fucks me over, it does it royally.
