Snuggled within the warm embrace of marital bliss, biologically altered army Captain Drake Devilin and his supernatural bride Sienna face their biggest challenge to date. Called back for duty in World War II, Drake must leave his amazing life behind and join his troop to fight the Nazis. Although he’s certain his new mission is merely a rouse to obtain his most precious commodity, his wife, Drake leaves, but not before giving Sienna a magical necklace in the hope it will protect her against unknown enemies.

Lured from her prosperous island by a sorcerer who is convinced she was always meant to be his bride. Sienna is challenged to play three magical games to ensure her husband’s safe return. In each game, a limited time is given to Sienna to immerse herself into a new world, situation, and persona; find Drake; and have him acknowledge her by name. And she can’t use her powers to make it happen.

Everything dear to Sienna’s heart is put in jeopardy. Willing to fight for the love of her life and her happiness, Sienna takes on the sorcerer in his own game of cat and mouse.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?

Sweet as Sin is the first book in this series and I left a lot of room for a sequel. The idea came to me while I was in the middle of finishing the first book.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
Devil’s Play took me around four months to write.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
My favorite part about writing is the ebbs and flows. I plot out the stories; I know where I want to get to, but I don’t necessarily know how I’m going to get there.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
My least favorite thing about writing is the business side. When it’s all said and done, what an author puts out artistically and creatively, in the end, becomes business.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
The light bulb is the oldest thing in my fridge. I throw stuff out pretty fast and have a crazy relationship with left overs.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
A sweet romance is scheduled for this summer, Remember This. I’m generally not a straight romance type of writer, but this one I couldn’t resist. It’s about a failed relationship, a busted house, and a missing family will.
