Colton And The Single Mom – New Romantic Suspense Release from author Jane Godman

JANE GODMAN is our guest on MBB today. Jane Godman writes paranormal romance for Harlequin Nocturne and SMP Romance and thrillers for Harlequin Romantic Suspense. She also self-publishes her historical and gothic stories.

What draws you to the Romantic Suspense genre?
I love the drama and the unique balance between love story and thriller. It’s important to give equal weight to both the romance and the suspense. And that can be hard to get right. As an author, you have to keep the threads of both stories entwined throughout. Ultimately, you have to rescue the characters from danger and give them a happy ending. It’s very satisfying.  

How did you learn the storytelling craft?
I read a lot! There’s no better way to learn than from seeing how others do it. And I’ve always written my own stories. Ever since I could hold a pencil, I’ve been writing. I wrote my first book when I was fourteen (although it was a long way from then to publication). 

Did your characters appear before your readymade, or did you create them?
The characters in Colton and the Single Mom were unusual because they did come readymade, in a way. Because this is a twelve book series, with a different author each month, there had to be an element of direction from the Harlequin editors about the central storyline. From then on, I found Brayden and Esmée totally took over and told their own story!  

Do you miss your characters when your story is complete?
I really do! That’s why I love writing a series, I get to take the readers back so we can visit them again. We get a peek into their lives, find out if they have kids, and see them happy and enjoying being together.  

What’s the core message of your story?
In Colton and the Single Mom, both the hero and the heroine have had bad relationships and it’s made them wary. They don’t want to be together, but they are so right for each other that they can’t help it. Although it’s a romantic suspense, the core love story is about trust and finding that one person who makes the world seem right again.   

And now, the book!

Exclusive Interview With Mollie Blake

Mollie Blake took a bit of time out of her busy blog touring schedule to answer my curious questions about her work and her latest release, ‘Keeping You’.

Mollie, there’s a question I love to ask authors of romantic fiction. Like many writers, I often find myself creating a heroine who’s a ‘smarter, better me’. Where did your main character come from?
Let me just say – I am not in any of my books 😉 My main characters just come to life in my head, I don’t consciously base them on anyone I know. There is a French man in The Secret At Arnford Hall who was influenced by a guy I worked with in France but in the nicest possible way.

That’s interesting. 
 Can you briefly share something with me and our readers about your writing process?
For each book, I have a new notebook, distinctive in some way.  And if possible the cover of the notebook will have some bearing on my story. For example, the hero in

Mollie’s Notebook for Guiltless

Guiltless is obsessed with straight lines, and this is the cover of my notebook for this story

Can you summarise your plot in a Tweet-sized sentence?
A very private, celibate man falls in love for the first time but has to face dangers from his past before he can have his happy ever after.

What’s next, Mollie?
Currently completing a novella and continuing my 6th book, so lots to do.

Keeping You by Mollie Blake

Book Description

His past haunts him. Revenge drives him. Can her love save him?

After a chance meeting in a bookshop, young Suzy Harper is engaged by multi-multimillionaire, Lawrence Bane, to work on translating a French document. They embark on an intense relationship, but he is surrounded by mystery and shame as demons from his past threaten to destroy everything he has worked for, including her love for him.

This exciting erotic romantic thriller traces the increasingly intense and tender relationship between the inexperienced Suzy and her wealthy, troubled lover, Lawrence. There are two obsessions in Lawrence’s life—his passion for Suzy and his drive for revenge against the gangland boss who murdered his best friend.

Will Suzy be strong enough to accept Lawrence for the man he is? Will Lawrence trust the woman he loves enough to reveal his darkest secrets to her? Will their love survive the challenges that lie ahead?
