Do you have a favorite line or excerpt from your book?
Beth, the heroine in Forged in Fire, is an avid romance reader and the alpha hero is very popular in romantic fiction, so my favorite excerpt is a bit of an inside joke.
“Too bad.” He caught her chin in an iron grip and forced her gaze up. The face staring back was hard, determined. Lethal. “You can fight what’s between us all you want. It won’t change a thing. You’re mine. And sweetheart, you don’t want to bring another guy into this, not unless you want to watch him bleed. I don’t share.”
“Excuse me?” Beth’s jaw would have dropped if he hadn’t had hold of her chin.
A wave of intense disorientation swept over her. For a moment she was convinced she was still dreaming. That she’d fallen asleep while reading one of JR Ward’s Brotherhood of The Black Dagger romances and had inserted herself into a dream based on the book. Any moment now he was going to start growling Mine Mine Mine and let loose with some spicy bonding scent. Or flash a massive set of fangs.
Except… if she was dreaming, wouldn’t he be a jacked-up, massively muscled vampire warrior, rather than the testosterone laden, far-too-alpha—but human—pain-in-the-derriere?
She concentrated on the hard fingers under her chin, and the sense of disorientation dissipated. Oh no, this was real. And it just went to show that her secret weakness in literary escapism did not translate well into reality. The last thing she needed or wanted in real life was a bonded alpha male. Romantic fiction aside, they were serious jackass material.
If your current release were to be turned into a movie, who would you love to see play what characters and why?
I’m asked this question a lot, but the truth is I can’t think of any actors/actresses that match the images of the characters I have in my head. Nobody even comes close.
