Q&A with Lucianne Rivers!


1. Tell us about your newest release.

HOLD ME, THRILL ME, ENTICE ME, trilogy of novellas, tell the story of the
three Caldwell sisters as they travel across the world in search of the father they thought dead, finding love and danger on the way. These are sensual romances, except for the final installment, ENTICE ME, which is a little sweeter. Each sister is different. Jane is well-dressed and out of her depth, Margo is a kick-ass police officer who braves her fear of open water to save her new lover, and Allison is the baby of family who melts the heart of a battle-worn ex-Navy SEAL. All of them have drive and devotion to family. These are women worth spending time with.

2. Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene?

Margo (the detective) throwing the keys of a drunk driver into the ocean,calling the cops, then making a run for it so she could catch her flight.

3. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

After the birth of my daughter two years ago.

4. Tell us a little about your daily writing routine. Are you a
plotter or pantser?

Used to be a pantser until I wasted several months writing three hundred pages of unusable manuscript...now I plot!

5. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

Humor. A lot of curse words. :)

6. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in
creating your books?

That as I wrote Margo's story and made her a detective, I was really yearning to be her.

7. What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a
writer?

Savvyauthors.com is a wonderful place to learn and meet with other writers, agents and publishers.

8. What does your family think about your career as a published
author?

My parents are not allowed to read my work. It's far too racy!!! :)
However, they think it's a great accomplishment.

9. Besides writing, what other interests do you have?

I do crossfit, Jiu Jitsu, kick-boxing and running.

10. Can you tell us about what’s coming up next for you writing wise?

I'm leaving writing behind for a while as I go off to become my dream: a police officer. I start in December.

11. How can readers connect with you online?

ENTICE ME by Lucianne Rivers

Heartsick over the untimely death of her mother, Allison Caldwell is blindsided again by the secret revealed in her mom’s will. Her supposedly dead father is alive, and she and her two sisters must find him in order to settle the Caldwell estate.

Robert Rivera, private investigator and former Navy SEAL, alerts Allison to new intel identifying her father as a P.O.W. in Afghanistan. With her sisters out of the country pursuing leads, Allison insists on heading to the war-ravaged country to find him. Robert doesn’t want his na├»ve client to take the risk. He knows what danger lays in that godforsaken land…he’s lived through it. Barely.

But Allison is determined to go, and Robert can’t let her travel alone. Reluctantly appreciative, Allison quickly realizes how much she needs his guidance and protection, and how deeply she longs for his love. Robert struggles to understand her effect on his battle-weary heart.

The path to Allison’s father is blocked by terrorists, traps and treachery—all demons of Robert’s past. Can he survive a second round with the enemy and keep Allison out of harm’s way?
