About Me

My photo
I love romance and writing it is one of my greatest pleasures. Along with writing romance, I love sitting back and talking with authors that love romance just as much as I do. Since I've been reading romance since I was sixteen years old I am a book lover that still reads lots of books in a month. So, weekly I will also post my book picks. They may be picks that are new releases or maybe a favorite book of mine. On this blog you will see books featured by ALL romance genres.

Scandalous Heroes: Serenity King Interview

As readers who have seen, bought and read several boxedsets with multiple authors, I'm sure you wonder, how did the author chose their particular story? or why did this author decide to do a box set? or What's the purpose?. Well, I'm bringing you those answers.

Today I present to you, Serenity King, the author of "The Wrath of Michael" in Scandalous Heroes...

Talk about an author that is sweet, kind, generous, dedicated to tell a deep heart felt story that is compelling and you have Ms. King. She gives just as must sincerity to her readers as she does to fellow authors. Just see for yourself.

Michael Alesi is not looking for anything other than a good time. He works hard and plays even harder. But after being summoned to the home of his cousin, Michael is blindsided by the feisty, Kendra Washington. Kendra is beautiful and sassy, and she seems to want nothing to do with Michael. That is fine with Michael—he doesn’t do relationships and he has plenty of business and social opportunities to keep him busy. Then he witnesses Kendra’s life being put in danger by a nasty crime. He comes to her rescue and, as he gets to know her, he decides that maybe a committed relationship isn’t so bad after all.
Just as they are feeling their way toward a relationship, a whirlwind of deadly events sends life spiraling out of control for both Michael and Kendra. Will they be able to find shelter in each other’s arms, or will the demons of both the past and the present keep them apart forever?



SASSE: Tell me how you came up with the plot for your story in the Scandalous Hero boxed set.

Serenity: The Wrath of Michael is actually the second story in The Alesi Men series. The plot for this story was devised out of some of the events that happened in the first story. I fell in love with Michael and his brother Nicco even though they weren't the main characters in the story. After writing A Tryst At Midnight I thought that Nicco’s story would be next. However, Michael’s character spoke to me in a way that I couldn’t ignore. Michael’s character in my mind is that quiet I will let you go but so far. However, step to me wrong; I will kill you and not look back. Lol.

SASSE: Is your story connected to a series you write?

Serenity: Yes. It is connected to The Alesi Men series. The first story in the series is called A Tryst At Midnight which features Piero and Adanna. Although, The Wrath of Michael is connected to a series it can also be read as a standalone.

SASSE: What was the most challenging scene to write?

Serenity: My story has a little bit of suspense in it. It is always hard to write a suspense scene without giving away who the culprits really are J. The scene when Kendra is at Michael’s house was difficult. A lot of things happen at that house and trying to tie it all together without giving too much away was a challenge.

SASSE: Did you have celebrity inspiration for your hero(s) and heroine?

Serenity: No, I didn’t. So far, I have never used celebrity inspiration for any of my stories. I get a thought in my head or I may see or witness something and a story develops from there.

SASSE: Why did you choose to join the Scandalous Heroes boxed set with these 8 other authors?

Serenity: Are you kidding?! Eight (8) FANTASTIC Authors asked me to join them in a box set, and I jumped at the chance. I have been a fan of most of these authors for a very long time, and some I’ve only known within that last year or so, but it feels as if I’ve known all of the authors much longer. Not only are they awesome writers, they are also incredible women. I really felt the sisterhood in this collaboration. I am still having a fan girl moment.

SASSE: What do you want the readers/romance world to take away from the collection once they read it?

Serenity: I want readers to take away from the collection that nine (9) authors came together, stepped outside of the box, and gave readers quality stories featuring interracial couples. So don’t be afraid to step out of the comfort zone and experience love to its fullest no matter what the race. I believe we accomplished that in this box set.
