Derek
by Sienna Matthews | Interview

Q: How does it feel to be a published author?
Fabulous! There's still a sense of disbelief when I see my book in "print".

Space In His Heart
by Roxanne St. Claire | Interview

Q: What made you decide to do a book about the US space program?
I live on the Space Coast of Florida, in the shadow of Kennedy Space Center. After watching my first shuttle launch -- standing in my backyard! -- I was a fan. When the astronauts would arrive and fly the T-38s overhead, I'd get chills just imagining how daring and sexy those guys could be...I couldn't...
Proof of Love
by Arabella Stokes | Interview

Q: Why did you choose the Georgian period of English history for your setting instead of the more traditional Regency period?
My hero really started it all. I had just watched The Duchess, with Keira Knightley, when I ran across an article about one of her in-laws, the scientist Henry Cavendish. Henry was an odd little fellow, but I started thinking about how many gentlemen and peers of the Georgian era were involved in scientific...
Strings Attached
by Anne Holly | Interview

Q: Where did you get the idea for STRINGS ATTACHED?
I wrote the original draft of Strings Attached back in 2000 or 2001, I think, so it's difficult to remember what all went into it. I do know that certain elements involving Katie's death were inspired by real life events in the news at the time, though not exactly. I was also passionate about animal...
Eulogy's Secret
by Grace Elliot | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for EULOGY'S SECRET?
The idea for Eulogy's Secret came from a poster on the London Underground.

I was taking my sons to the theatre when through the dirty glass I glimpsed a poster for a memorial concert at the Royal Albert Hall. One word on that poster stuck in my mind - "eulogy".

It struck me that eulogy would...

Ruined
by Kinley Baker | Interview

Q: What was your inspiration for writing RUINED?
I wrote RUINED because I wanted to create a mystical realm full of magic and shadows. I envisioned a picture of an enchanting castle with a beautiful and sacred power source hidden in its depths. Romancing the mystery of shadows became a little bit of an obsession, which is where the idea of shifting...
Tides of Passion
by Tracy Sumner | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write TIDES OF PASSION?
Well, I was very inspired to write TIDES OF LOVE. It's a bit of an unusual romance -- about a marine biologist in 1898. I based the locale on Beaufort, NC (Outer Banks) and the second marine biology lab, after Woods Hole, built in the US. I have a thing for sexy, nerdy heros. Anyway, once I started...
Always Her Cowboy
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: ALWAYS HER COWBOY was set on a ranch in Wyoming. This is much different than the L.A. setting of other books in the Search for Love Series. What was your motivation behind the change in scenery?
When I planned the Search For Love series with both revised and updated titles as well as new books, I decided to try to please a variety of readers. Each is a different type of romance. Many of my readers like "cowboy" books. I am always challenged to find a new twist to life on a ranch. I truly love...
The Chameleon Goggles
by Maureen O. Betita | Interview

Q: The world you've created in the Kraken's Caribbean in amazing. Please tell us more about this fantastic world you've created.
Well, this isn't your everyday Tortuga! My island sits at a crossroads for alternate worlds and times. Anyone might drop in. The only thing keeping the world from being overrun is the Great Albino Kraken and the magic workers. They work together to make certain no weapons of mass destruction come through,...
Destiny Redeemed
by Gabrielle Bisset | Interview

Q: The world of the Aeverens is extremely unique. Please give us some more information about these interesting people.
Aeveren are descended from humans and their physiology is exactly like humans. Long ago, the Archangel Raziel saw people who practiced alchemy and mysticism and were persecuted for the very arts he represented. Full of sympathy for them, he rescued them from the attacks and bestowed upon them gifts...
Nathan's Vow
by Karen Rose Smith | Interview

Q: NATHAN'S VOW is a unique story about a man, Nathan, who turns to a psychic, Gillian, to help him find his missing daughters and they end up falling in love. I thought that it was a very unique storyline. How did you come up with the idea?
Life energy fascinates me. Energy surrounds us all the time. For years, because of physical problems, I've turned to acupuncture, cranial-sacral work and guided imagery. I know first-hand the healing power of all of those therapies based on and managing life energy. I've also learned about the mind-body...
The Pet Shop
by K D Grace | Interview

Q: First of all, I have to say that the premise for THE PET SHOP is wonderfully unique. Where did you come up with such an original idea?
I love to play around with fairy tales and myths. THE PET SHOP is a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Instead of the beast being openly wild and dangerous our beast, Tino, is a human Pet. But he's a Pet who's anything but tame. What actually gave me the original idea was watching the way people...
ALTERANT
by Sherrilyn Kenyon; Dianna Love | Interview

Q: What is the inspiration for the Belador series?
I have always been fascinated by the unusual and supernatural. About seven years back, I started thinking, "what if gods and goddesses from different mythologies bumped into each other and had a dispute - who would win?" I'm also a huge suspense fan so anything I'm involved with will have a suspense...
Lust & Chastity
Would you surrender the pleasure of lust to become a lady of chastity? Darien Avery followed Caitlyn Sinclair from England to Australia, memories of their intense love affair fresh in his mind. When they arrive he quickly learns he isn't the only man in this new country who's infatuated with the breathtaking, blonde-haired beauty. Women are turning up dead, victims to the worst kinds of depraved acts—women who fit Caitlyn's description—and every clue to the murderer leads back to Darien's family. Frantic to save Caitlyn's life, he sends her up north to her family, hoping to free her from the murderer's grasp. But she never makes it there. When he receives word that her dead body has been found, his heart breaks and he throws himself into a life of debauchery and sin as punishment for failing to save the woman he loves. He's in for even more of a shock when he discovers that his beloved Caitlyn is not dead, and has in fact, been living in Jarvisfield for months. This time he will protect her. However, Caitlyn is having none of it. She believes Darien has betrayed her, and she won't fall for him again. No longer is she his lustful lover, but rather a lady of chastity, determined to live an independent life—one without Darien.

Free - from November 17th to November 21st! Available on Kindle Unlimited! She needs peace and quiet. He's a distraction. She wants to be left alone. He's inevitable. She has a writer's block. He might be the cure. The only thing Jessica Slade wanted was some peace and quiet, and to finally finish her book. So, a place called A Drop of Paradise was supposed to do the trick. With its stunning sandy beaches, crystal clear, aquamarine waters and tropical sunsets, it was supposed to cure more than a writer's block.

Broad-shouldered Mike Stone is irresistible, sexy and cooler than a mojito in your hand, and maybe even a perfect, muscled ideal for the cover of her next novel, but not all the imagination in the world could prepare her for what can happen between two strangers on a spit of sand, when sparks start to fly and anger turns to lust.

Between secrets, lies, and a violent tangle with a rival club, can these two passionate hot-heads find the love and solace they're looking for in each other's arms?
