Megan's 5 star rated Contemporary Romance

Monday, 12 December 2011

Kate Lynd was born in and currently resides in Kentucky. She loves college basketball, marathoning, the University of Kentucky and all things Hollywood. Her latest release is No Ordinary Love, a sci-fi erotic romance available at Muse It Hot Publishing. Her upcoming release is Another Way to Die, also from Muse It Up Publishing.

A human rebel against the Capturian Forces, Caliope was enslaved for five years and tortured.
She never expects to meet James, a half-breed too human for his own good.

Their connection is electric. Their love is forbidden. Their daughter may be Earth's only hope.
From where do you get inspiration and what inspired you to write No Ordinary Love?
Daniel Craig’s bad ass character from Cowboys and Aliens.
Who controls the story – you or your characters?
I rarely control anything about my stories. And when I resist  them it becomes difficult to write at all.
What do you hope your readers come away with after reading the book?  That they’re as in love with my characters as I am.

What do you like best and least about writing?
I love losing myself in  my work and letting the world fall away.  I hate the torturous process of coming up with the next idea.
Do you have a writing routine?
I get up in the morning and write until I go to bed at night when working on a project.
Anything special you require to keep the creative juices flowing? Coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
What is the best writing advice you have ever received?
I live my writing life by three rules 1) You gotta reject rejection. 2) Seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.  And finally 3)Don’t get it right get it written.
What can we look forward to from you in the near future?
Another Way to Die is set to release this month as well and it is dark romantic suspense it is Casino Royale meets The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. And I’m currently at work on a post apocalyptic erotic romance GLADIATOR.
How do you like to spend your free time?    Going to the movies and the bookstore. I also like to cook.
What was your favourite book as a child/teen/adult?   Summer Of My German Soldier and Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee.

Are you currently reading anything?   No, but on my TBR pile is Rock Crazy.

When I woke I was in a small room, naked except for the salves on my skin and a warm blanket wrapped around my body. I looked around James was sleeping in a chair next to the bed with a shotgun at his side. I tried to sit up and his eyes flickered open.
"Keep still. they'll sense you."
His nearnes was enough to make me yearn for his touch. Relationships between Capturians and humans were taboo by their very nature. But James himself was an anomaly. He was the offspring of a capturian Master and his female human slave. He never talked about it, but I knew it left him with a bitterness and heaviness that not even the oldest of human survivors had.
He'd been a guard on the slave ship I'd originally been sent to, early on in the fighting. the 'experiments' had been tortuous. During my first six months there, they tried to break me. Every night I was in tears. angry, bitter, terrified tears. When I slept there was no relief, either, as I was haunted in my dreams by the things they had done to me in the daytime. Eventually, I lost all sense of time or place. I was about to fall on my sword when James was assigned to watch me and make sure I didn't rally the other human slaves. Instead ofplunging me into utter darkness and suspending me in air, he'd come to me, that first night, and held me through it.
