MBA&M: Please tell our readers a few interesting facts about Maya Banks,the author?
MAYA: I’m likely the most boring, normal person on the face of the earth 🙂 I work long hours, so I hole up in my “cave” a lot and I usually only make it out to my daughter’s softball tournaments or my middle son’s baseball games. I’m a homebody at heart, and my favorite place to be is at home, surrounded by my family.
MBA&M: Where did the inspiration behind the “Breathless” trilogy come from?
MAYA: The Breathless trilogy is inspired by my Harlequin Desires and my Sweet Series. I blended elements from both kinds of stories and incorporated them into RUSH, FEVER and BURN.
MBA&M: Which was the hardest scene to write in “Fever” and why?fever_450
MAYA: The scene where Bethany almost takes the pill and it nearly breaks her and then when she tells Jace what she almost did and that if this is what their relationship does to her that she doesn’t want it. It was very emotional!
MBA&M: Who is your favorite character in the “Breathless” trilogy so far,why?
MAYA: Probably Ash, just because he has so many hidden layers and the face he presents the world is not at all who he is 🙂
MBA&M: How hard is it to write the sensual scenes?
MAYA: VERY hard. They’re the hardest of any scene to write because they have to be done “just right” and they can’t be hurried or rushed. They have to contain emotion or they come across too clinically. And they have to convey the tone and mood of the story at the time that the love scene takes place. Which means that every love scene has to be different because they take places at different points of the story and relationship.

MBA&M: Which character do you feel has grown the most in both “Rush”, and  “Fever” and which will come into their own in the next title?

MAYA: I definitely think Gabe has done the most growing and changing. He went from a very cold, unfeeling person who approached relationships very clinically and with distance. Mia changed everything about him and his approach.
MBA&M: Who is your favorite secondary character and why?
MAYA: Mia’s group of friends are a lot of fun, and I enjoy writing them 🙂

Jace, Ash, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Jace, it’s a woman whose allure takes him completely by surprise…

Jace Crestwell, Ash McIntyre, and Gabe Hamilton have been best friends and successful business partners for years. They’re powerful, they’re imposing, they’re irresistibly sexy, and Jace and Ash share everything—including their women.

When they meet Bethany, Jace begins to feel things he’s never experienced before: jealousy, and a powerful obsession that threatens him, overwhelms him—and excites him beyond control.

Jace isn’t sharing Bethany—with anyone. He’s determined to be the only man in her life, and it’s jeopardizing a lifelong friendship with Ash. Bethany will be his and his alone. Even if it means turning his back on his best friend.
