Aloha to Sarah Castille and IN YOUR CORNER


Let's get physical with Sarah Castille and her recent release, IN YOUR CORNER.  From her bio,

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Sarah Castille, worked and travelled abroad before trading her briefcase and stilettos for a handful of magic beans and a home near the Canadian Rockies. She writes erotic contemporary romance and romantic suspense featuring blazingly hot alpha heroes and the women who tame them.

Kim:  Many readers would be envious of your opportunity to study at the University of Edinburgh. Can you share your favorite sight, sound, and smell of Auld Reekie?

Sarah:  I loved the sight of Edinburgh Castle in the evening when the evening light made it glow. My favorite sound was, of course, the bagpipes, which were played at all university ceremonies, and my favorite smell had to be the beer which was served at the 500 pubs in the city (many of which I visited!)

Kim:  You wrote while working in London you "developed a taste for tea, European footwear, and Greek cuisine." What flavor of tea? What shoe? What Greek dish?

Sarah:  I loved freshly brewed Indian tea blends they served at fancy hotels, where the leaves were placed in a little tea strainer, and then immersed in hot water. The flavors were always fresh and intense. Ah, it is hard to pick just one type of shoe, but I spent a lot of time shopping at the quirky shoe stores in Covent Garden. My favorite Greek dish is Spanikopita.

Kim:  What inspired IN YOUR CORNER?

Sarah:  I was lost one day in the city and stopped at an MMA gym for directions. All those rippling muscles, toned pecs and tight abs, alpha males grappling on the mats, tossing each other to the ground…sigh…talk about an idea for a story! J

Kim:  What's next for Sarah Castille?

Sarah:  I've just finished edits on Full Contact, the third book in the Redemption series, which features two minor characters from In Your Corner, Ray and Sia. It's a little darker than the first two books and I'm looking forward to sharing their story. I will also be releasing the first book in a new dark romance series, Captive of Desire, in November. It is part of the Invitation to Eden continuity project involving 27 fabulous authors. And finally, I'm very excited about the release of Rough Justice, the first book in a new gritty biker series, which will be out in February.

Thanks to SOS Aloha for hosting me today!

Steve McGarrett entered an MMA match on H50.

Sourcebooks is giving away a print copy of IN YOUR CORNER to one randomly selected commenter:

A Publishers Weekly Best Summer Book 2014!

He rules in the ring.

Two years ago, Jake and Amanda were going hot and heavy. But when Jake wanted more, Amanda walked away. Jake immersed himself in mixed martial arts, living life on the edge. But that didn't dull the pain of Amanda's rejection-until a chance encounter throws them together.

A high-powered lawyer, Amanda was a no-strings-attached kind of girl. But two years after her breakup with Jake, she still hasn't found anyone who gets her heart pumping the way he did. And then he shows up in her boardroom, hot as sin and needing help...

But can he rule her heart?

Jake is darker, sexier, and impossible to resist. As their chemistry builds, Amanda's not sure if she can stay in control, or if she's finally willing to let him claim her body and soul.
