We are so excited to have you with us today!!
How do you get your creative juices flowing?
I have daily writing goals, so I try to focus on those. Some days the writing is easy and the words just flow, but other days, it’s more of a challenge. I write anyway. I don’t believe in a muse. If I did, I’d putter around the house all day, waiting for it show up! Eventually, I’d feel guilty enough about dawdling that I’d resort to housework.
What was your inspiration for writing a Contemporary romance, with domestic life, and erotica romance?
I like taking a familiar story and turning it upside down. His Every Need is a modern twist on Beauty and the Beast. But family—the ups and downs and strained relationships—that’s real life. We all go through it, and I like writing about those interconnected dynamics. For me, that’s what makes a character real and emotional and relatable—those familial bonds. As for the erotica…that’s just good, dirty fun!
What made you decide to write a tale of the British tycoon and a determined woman to make her way?
Honestly, Trevor Blake wouldn’t leave me alone. He’s dry and sarcastic and funny. He wanted me to tell his story.
Allie is the perfect woman for Trevor. She challenges him, and she’s not a pushover. Allie has goals and dreams of her own. Then I added Trevor’s wacky parents and Allie’s needy sisters to the mix—lots of fun elements to write.
How very exciting! Thanks again for spending time with us and readers today!
Allie Campbell is determined to take care of her family, no matter the cost. But when her father loses their home to British tycoon Trevor Blake, Allie finds herself forced to plead for more time to pay off the loan…and if she has to use her own body as collateral, then so be it.
Trevor isn’t moved by Allie’s story. But when Allie impulsively offers to do anything to keep the house, he’s intrigued enough to raise the stakes: for the next two months, she must cater to his every need, no matter how depraved. To his amazement, she agrees.
Allie has no intention of enjoying her time with the arrogant, domineering Brit, but it doesn’t take long before he’s got her aching for his touch-and he’ll do whatever it takes to make her beg…
