Iain wasn’t just rough around the edges—he was uncivilized, despite all the elegant trappings and expensive suits. And Brynn wanted more of it. She wanted Iain in full-on barbarian mode.
She wanted to be taken.
Filthy rich British bad boy Iain Chapman made a name for himself as a ruthless businessman, but if he can secure an investment from Vegas powerhouse Trevor Blake, Iain could take his business to the next level. Solution? Hire beautifully timid corporate trainer—and Trevor’s sister-in-law—Brynn Campbell and seduce his way to success.
Brynn’s everything Iain is not: kind, delicate, decent. But she’s also got a taste for something a little beastly, and it doesn’t take long for Iain to break through her every inhibition. Brynn was supposed to be his pawn, but as Iain gets closer to his goal, he begins to realize he’s not ready to let her go, not now, not ever—even if it costs him everything.
Kari& Autumn: What inspired you to become a writer?
TLA: From the time I was a little girl, I’ve heard characters talking—not only to me, but to each other. I’d see their stories played out in my mind. It seemed natural to start writing down their conversations.
Kari& Autumn: Where do you come up with the ideas for your books?
TLA: I’m an avid reader. Not only books, but news, blogs, anything I can get my hands on really. I get my stories from the world around me. I’ll read a snippet of an article or overhear someone when I’m in a restaurant and an idea will spark.
Kari& Autumn: What exciting projects are waiting in the wings?
TLA: I’m working on a new series with Irish expats who inhabit a bare knuckle fight club. It’s called, naturally enough, the Irish Brawlers series. It’s set in Chicago, and I’m having a blast getting to know all the characters.
Kari& Autumn: Who is your favorite literary character?
TLA: As a kid, I read The Little House on the Prairie books over and over. Laura was so adventurous. As an adult, I’ve been obsessed with the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Mac is such a fascinating character.
Kari& Autumn: Just for fun, if you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
TLA: I’d be one of Queen Elizabeth’s corgis. You know those dogs are treated better than some of the lesser royals. I’m not above being a pampered pooch.
