1. Why write romance? Do you have any other genres you would like to try writing? Any that you wouldn’t even think of?
Romance was a natural choice for me since it was my favorite genre of book to read. Also, I don't think my mind is twisted enough for dark thrillers I also like reading. It's ironic I chose romance because I'm sort of an unromantic person in real life. Or maybe I'm just a "closet romantic".
I do want to try romantic comedy because I think I'd be good at that. I'm also going to do some romantic suspense next year in my Sugar Bowl series coming out with Random House/Loveswept.

2. Does your mom/family read your books? What are the reactions, specially to the more spicy scenes?
My family does read my books and they are very proud of me. We don't talk about the spicy scenes, but honestly... those are just a small part of the book. Don't get me wrong, what I throw in I try to melt Kindles with, but I think my family appreciates that looking past the sex scenes, I write complex characters with solid plots that are entertaining to readers. I think that's what my family really appreciates.

3. How long on average does it take you to write a book?
In the early days of writing, I could write a book in a solid rough draft form in about 10-14 days. I've slowed down a bit as I've become a mother and cut my hours back, but I can usually get one done if I'm under pressure in that same time. Without pressure though, I sort of dawdle and it can take me 30 days to write one now.

4. How hard was it to publish your first book? Did anyone guide you through the process?
I found it very easy to self publish. I took an amazing online course about self publishing and had a few authors that let me pick their brains about the process. It's one of the things that sets the Indie community of authors apart; they're willingness to help and support.

5. From all your books what character has been the more difficult and why? The easiest and why?
Most of my characters have been pretty easy to write. My books are very character driven; I let them speak to me and direct the story. What I might have thought would be the way a book will go will often turn 180 degrees in a different direction because a character tells me to go there. However, there have been a few that I wasn't sure which way to take them. Two men that come to mind are Alex and Zack from the Cold Fury, as they had some "issues" to work through. As for a woman, the toughest in my opinion was Casey from Shaken, Not Stirred. She had issues too!!! Luckily, Tenn was enough of a man to get her through them!

6. All time favorite book? Quote? Movie?
All time favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird.
All time favorite quote:  "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill
All time favorite movie: Forrest Gump

7. Biggest challenge as an author? As an individual?
My biggest challenge as an author is maintaining a writing routine. When you work at home, it sort of falls on you to handle things. Add on a new baby, and that complicates it further. As an individual? Definitely maintaining work/home balance.

8. Which one of your books would you like to see as a tv series or a movie? Any actors you could see playing those characters?
I think Uncivilized would make a good movie or TV series. And since I don't know much about the Hollywood actors out there now due to letting my People magazine subscription lapse, I'll have to go with my favorite... Chris Hemsworth for Zach. Oooohhh... and maybe Julia Roberts for Moira with the red hair and all, but she's significantly older so maybe the plot line could be developed to add in a cougar element????

The Legal Affairs Boxed Set

Mac and Matt
 All six volumes in one, big boxed set!!!

Legal Affairs – Objection
Volume 1 in the Legal Affairs Serial Romance
One year ago, I graduated from law school and embarked on a career as a purveyor of high priced legal shenanigans.
Six months ago, my boyfriend dumped me when I thought he might be proposing.
Two weeks ago, I got drunk and joined a secret sex club.
Two days ago, I had a torrid one-night stand with a stranger.
Today? Well, today I’m contemplating having an affair with my boss.
Matt Connover is all kinds of forbidden temptation wrapped up in a deliciously wicked package, and he’s made it clear… he’s only interested in sex.
My name is McKayla Dawson but everyone calls me Mac. I work at the powerhouse firm of Connover & Crown, LLP, where the law has never felt so hot.
But between you and me, I’m afraid my heart won’t survive these Legal Affairs.

Legal Affairs – Stipulation
Volume 2 in the Legal Affairs Serial Romance
I crossed a line with my boss and there’s no taking it back.
Not that I’d want to.
You see… Matt Connover? Well, he’s something else. Strong, magnetic, sexy as hell… but yeah, he’s still my boss.
What am I doing? Why is he so irresistible to me?
Maybe it’s because I finally saw a different side to him. I saw, for a brief moment, that Matt is vulnerable, possibly damaged. Is it wrong that it makes him even sexier in my opinion?
I’m in deep and I don’t see any way out.
I don’t want to find a way out.
I want to find a way for both of us to stay involved in these Legal Affairs.

Legal Affairs – Violation
Volume 3 in the Legal Affairs Serial Romance
My life is in a tail-spin and I’m about ready to crash.
I’ve cut Matt Connover out of my life… well, at least out of my bedroom.
But I still have to deal with him at work. I have Lorraine intent on raining hell and destruction down upon me, which at least provides a nice diversion from my miserable feelings over Matt.
About the only good thing that has happened to me lately?
Cal Carson asked me out… and I accepted.
Matt’s not going to like that. Not one little bit.
But that’s not my problem now, is it?

Legal Affairs – Mitigation
Volume 4 in the Legal Affairs Serial Romance
I’ve seen a new side to Matt Connover. He’s proven to me that there is something inside him other than icy control and masculine force.
I’ve seen care… tenderness… even protectiveness.
I’ve seen vulnerability.
But Matt Connover’s issues run deep. I know Cal hurt him greatly, and he keeps himself protected because of that. I also sense there is something more to his pain that even I cannot comprehend.
Matt is struggling between what he knows and what he wants.
I’m struggling with boundaries and how to protect my own fragile heart.
This time I’m drawing a line in the sand and Matt can either step over to join me, or these Legal Affairs are finished forever.

Legal Affairs – Reparation
Volume 5 in the Legal Affairs Serial Romance
Matt Connover is like a new person. Caring, romantic and thoughtful. No worries though… he’s still sexy as hell.
He has changed in every way that I have ever dreamed of, and he did it because he wants me. It’s like a fairy tale of sorts.
Except… like with every fairy tale, there is a villain. One who threatens to disrupt the harmony we have created together.
Is what we have strong enough to survive? I truly believe that perhaps I can find love within these Legal Affairs. I’m just not sure Matt believes it.

Legal Affairs – Affirmation
Volume 6 in the Legal Affairs Serial Romance
Things are off, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Some things, however, are the same. For example, the sex with Matt is just as nuclear and consistent as it always has been.
Still… I feel like I’m holding onto Matt with my fingertips, like he’s on the verge of slipping away and I don’t know what to do.
When I started these Legal Affairs, I had no way of knowing the depth of feeling that would become involved. I had no way of knowing this man could shatter my existence.
I don’t want to be hurt, so I’m grasping hard and I can only hope that he wants me enough to hang on just as tight.

Confessions of a Litigation God
 Confessions of a Litigation God is a stand alone, full length novel. It follows the affair of Matt Connover and McKayla Dawson as told in the Legal Affairs Serial Romance, Volumes 1-6. This book is told strictly from Matt’s point of view and has many additional scenes not included in the serial volumes.
 WARNING, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK from Matt Connover, Litigation God: Please do not attempt to read my story in public, as my sexual proclivities have been known to cause squirming in your seat, squeezing of your legs together and unintentional moaning, sometimes with spontaneous bursts of laughter at random moments. If you are offended by the fact that my oral skills are just as accomplished in the bedroom as they are the courtroom, then this book is not for you. There may be moments while reading my story that you get so turned on… so hot and bothered… that your squirming and moaning could turn maniacal in nature and neither I, nor the author, are responsible for the weird looks you may get. Notwithstanding the aforementioned warnings, if you assume the risk and read my tale in public, then I recommend you carry a spare set of panties with you. You will need them and you have been warned.”
My name is Matt Connover. I am a Litigation God.
Other lawyers quake before me.
Women crawl on their knees just to spend the night in my bed and when I’m finished with them, I walk away without a backward glance.
I am well satisfied with my life and there isn’t a damn thing I’d change about it.
That is, until McKayla Dawson came along.
She was meant to be for one night only.
But she got under my skin, and now I want her back underneath my body.
It’s torture working with her in my law firm… day in and day out. But I have to think maybe the Fates have intervened to throw us together because she is unlike anyone I’ve ever known, and thus I need to pay careful attention to these Legal Affairs.

Legal Affairs - Cal and Macy

Clash
Book 1
Clash (verb): to conflict, disagree.
It might be fair to say that I despise Macy Carrington. She slings insults with precision, not caring about the destruction she leaves in her wake. We clash in a battle of wills every time we’re around each other, and yet… I still fantasize about being lodged deep within her body.
Clash (verb): to come together or collide.
I have never encountered someone that grates me the way Cal Carson does. His pompous, arrogant demeanor. A holier-than-thou attitude. Any interaction with “Saint Cal” ends in a verbal clash of epic proportions, and yet… there’s no one I’d rather have in my bed than him.
Clash (noun): a battle, fight or skirmish.
Her breathy moans mingle with the sound of our flesh coming together, clashing with the silence that surrounds us, dispelling any notions I once had about Macy Carrington.
Maybe I can break down her walls if we can call a truce to this battle.
He whispers filthy words in my ear, provoking feelings I never knew were possible. The burning desire in his touch clashes with everything I once believed about Cal Carson.
Maybe he can be the balm I need to soothe my broken soul, if only temporarily.

Grind
Book 2
 Grind (verb): to weaken or destroy gradually
Macy Carrington is not the woman I once thought her to be.
What she does not allow her heart to feel, she gives with her body. The sex between us is explosive and depraved. I’ve done things with her that would never have crossed my wildest imagination, and I can’t ever seem to get enough.
But now I want more from her. I want to figure out her dark secret, expose it and then help her to heal from it. I know, without a doubt, that Macy is capable of love, and I will grind her down until I make her accept the truth of it.
 Grind (verb): to wear down, polish, or sharpen by friction
Cal Carson is not the man I once thought him to be.
Strong, determined, sexy as hell and a beast in the bedroom. He is every woman’s fantasy.
He is my fantasy.
But no matter how hard Cal tries to grind me down, my heart and secrets are mine and mine alone.

Yield
Book 3
 Yield (verb): to surrender or submit (oneself) to another
Macy Carrington is broken. The strong, beautiful woman that I’ve unwittingly fallen in love with is all kinds of broken from a secret that she has carried for far too long.
A secret so dark, she has gone to great lengths to protect it.
A secret that I’m terrified will one day rip her away from me.
The only time Macy frees herself from the darkness is when she is naked and in my arms. When I am deep inside her body, there is nothing she fears. When she wraps herself around me, she is at peace.
If she would only yield to me completely, I know I can set her free.

Uncivilized
Standalone
**Warning: This book is an erotic romance and is only suitable for ages 18+**
I fuck with dominant force, absolute control and complete submission from my conquests. Putting a woman on bended knee before me is what really makes my cock hard.
This is the only way I know how to exist. It’s how I was raised after my missionary parents died, abandoning me to the Caraica tribe of the Amazon.
Sad little boy lost to the jungle so many years ago. Savage man, loner, warrior… I am dangerous at my core. I have lived amidst the untamed wild of the rainforest, in a society that reveres me and where every woman falls before me in subjugation. I love my existence because it is all I really know. It is more than I could ever want.
But unfortunately, I have been discovered. Now I am being forced to return to a world that I have forgotten about and to a culture that is only vaguely familiar to my senses.
Dr. Moira Reed is an anthropologist who has been hired to help me transition back into a modern society. It’s her job to smooth away my rough edges… to teach me how to navigate properly through this new life of mine. She’s wants to tame me.
And I hate her for it.
Because I am wild, free and raw, and the only thing I want from the beautiful Moira Reed is to have her bend over before me so I can fuck her into submission.
She wants it, I am certain.
I will give it to her soon.
Yes, very soon, I will become the teacher and she will become my student. And when I am finished with her, there is only one thing that she will remember about me.
That sweet admission will fall beautifully from her lips when she finally says, “You, Zacharias Moore, are an uncivilized man, and that is what I love most about you.”

Sweet Callie Hayes has returned home to Wyoming and is looking forward to starting her life over again. After a night of impetuosity, she’s managed to put herself right in Woolf’s line of sight… the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down.
Now Woolf is seeing that Callie is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on. Worse yet, both Callie’s dirty desires and sweet heart are getting under his skin, and making Woolf question everything he’s ever believed about himself.

Friction
Legal Affairs Novel
At the powerhouse law firm of Knight & Payne, winning comes first and ethics a distant second. Leary Michaels uses her female charms to daze opponents, and it’s always worked well—until now. On her most personal case yet, she finds herself going up against a defense attorney just as skilled, shameless, and seductive as she is.
Reeve Holloway has never met a woman as sure of her own sexuality, or as ruthless in wielding it, as Leary is. But he won’t be toyed with. What Leary starts, he’ll finish—in the courtroom, the bedroom, or any-damn-place he wants. The sex is uninhibited, electrifying, and absolutely against the rules. Reeve’s job is to ruin Leary’s case…even if it destroys her in the process and costs him the woman he’s come to love.

Hawke 
Carolina Cold Fury Series Book 5
Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.
Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.
