September may bring in cooler weather, but we have some hot authors chatting with us, like today we are happy to have Ms. Jade James talking about her latest book Dominic’s Temptation and a little about herself. Coffee Time Romance wants to extend a warm welcome to Ms. James, WELCOME!
Welcome Jade, and thanks for taking the time to chat with us. I just finished reading Dominic's Temptation. WOW, it was fantastic.
Where did you get your inspiration for this book?
A couple of years ago, I actually dated a man who works for the NYPD. He is the inspiration behind Dominic’s Temptation. Remaining nameless, the police officer works in New York and he’s a take charge, aggressive, and caring man. Not to mention the fact that he put his life on the line for the people of New York.
Jade I noticed that your hero's are very dominant men (which I prefer) do you find the readers are attracted to that most type of hero also?
I’m lucky enough to be married to be married to a dominant man myself and I do find that most readers prefer a sure man who knows what he wants.
Why did you give Dominic pierced nipples? (I loved it btw)
LOL. I actually tried to convince my husband to pierce his nipples. When he told me no, and gave the reason of pain as an excuse, well I had to envision it on someone.
What kind of research did you do for this book? And do you enjoy researching your work?
I love forensics. I actually want to go back to college and study it once the kids get older. So while I’m waiting for my darlings to grown, I read a lot of forensics work online, and watch shows like CSI. It fascinates me how you can solve a crime, with the details left behind. Technology in Forensics has also brought closure to many cases that had remained unsolved. Dominic’s Temptation gives a glimpse of some of the forensic work involved.
Jade has your husband ever read any of your work?
My husband is more of a newspaper man. So the answer to that would be no.
What are you working on now?
Right now, I’m working on two stories. Eva’s Wolf which is my first wolf paranormal and A Christmas Threesome which will deal with some really tough emotional issues. I hope to have both finished by September.
What book (if any) has been your biggest challenge?
I’m in the process of writing A Christmas Threesome and the leading lady is going through some scary stuff. This is probably the most I’ve ever cried when writing a story and I’m not a woman who shows her emotions well.
What does Jade James do for relaxation?
Read. I love it. I’ve always done it and it takes me to a place where I don’t worry about a thing.
Jade do you have a favorite time you write? Or just when the mood hits?
I have a weird schedule and I’ve kept to it. Five days a week, Monday-Friday during the day. No weekends because of my 6 and 3 year olds that take up a lot of my time.
Do you feel like deadlines hurt or help your writing?
I hate deadlines. I discovered that early on and I feel it hurts my writing. I’m not good under pressure.
Are we going to see a book on Madison's sister Raina?
Yes and I actually can’t wait to start on her book because she is in college to study on forensics. I’m interested in that area so Raina’s story would definitely be one filled with intrigue and suspense.
Of all your hero's who are YOU most attracted to and why?
Dominic. He a combination of pieces that I want the perfect man to be, rolled into one.
Jade is there a downside to your success?
No. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it and can honestly say that there hasn’t been a downside.
What kind of book do you like to read?
Anything that has to do with suspense and erotica. The two blended together with well in-depth characters make for an exciting read.
When writing a serious sexy scene, do you do anything to help your creative ideas flow?
Interesting question. I guess it depends on if I’m writing a scene where toys will be used, or if I’m just flowing with my own experience.
Jade would you give us your web site address?
