Quintette of Questions: DJ Michaels
Quintette asks writers five quick questions. This week’s interview is with:
My latest book is Enforcer’s Craving and it took me ages to get the title. The working title was Chelsea’s Bargain but my editor, quite rightly, felt it was a bit generic. (I think that’s her polite way of saying it was boring). So I gave her another couple of titles and she didn’t love those either. So I went to the Ellora’s Cave website and looked at a whole heap of titles and wrote down the emotive words – rapture, captive, craving, claimed, torn blah blah blah. Then I brainstormed and when I was finished I pulled my top ten and sent them off to my editor. She came back with her favourite four, in order, and Enforcer’s Craving was born.
2. If you could choose anyone from any time period, who would you cast as the leads in your latest book?
I’m bad at these. My characters always start from the inside, more about who they are what they are. All my heroes are big, muscly warrior-types so if I was looking for a physical comparison the closest I could get is the Rock in the Scorpian King (sans camel).
3. What five words best describe your story?
Sexy, warriors, heartache, courage, dragons.
4. Who is your favourite fictional couple?
Gosh, that depends on the day. One of my favourite romance films is ‘Only You’ with Marissa Tomey and Robert Downy Jr. As far as books go…that’s like asking me to pick my favourite child. Too hard.
5. What song always makes you cry?
Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. It’s an oldie but it never fails to fill my heart up.
About Enforcer’s Craving
A Romantica® ménage erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Dragon Alliance, Book One
Chelsea is kidnapped from her Melbourne home and taken to an alien planet to be sold at auction. Luckily, she a gets a last-minute reprieve and is rescued by Tarkan and Ari, two sexy dragon riders who take an immediate interest in her.
Chelsea has many challenges in her new world, but her biggest and most immediate concern is finding her best friend. Alone and without support, she turns to the only two people who have offered to help.
Tarkan and Ari have long resigned themselves to the fact that they will never have a woman of their own. But when Tarkan lays eyes on Chelsea he concocts a plan to ensure she not only commits to them, but will fight for their right to be together.
If Chelsea accepts the bargain, the Enforcers will do whatever it takes to rescue her best friend. Chelsea is attracted to them, but can she risk herself and her heart with two men she barely knows?
Books have always been my refuge, a bit (okay, a lot) like an adult cubbyhouse. When real life gets too much—or too little—I can delve into my library and be utterly transported to places familiar and exotic. My cubbyhouse is very cool, the door is always open for visitors, and new friends are most welcome.
