Out today, the always awesome Katee Robert has a new book and you guys are in for a treat! And to celebrate, Katee was nice enough to answer a few questions for us.
If you haven’t already make sure you check out all the delights on Katee’s book list, including His to Keep,
*What do you like the most (or least) about writing romances?
I love the push and pull between the two main characters as they fight for and against falling in love. It’s such a unique journey for each couple, and I never get tired of exploring their attraction and finding out new things!
*What is your favorite romantic story (movie/book, fact/fiction)?
I don’t know if I can pick just one! Anne Bishop’s Black Jewels trilogy is a favorite. The relationship that starts and develops between Damon and Janelle is so great because they have to basically walk through hell and back in order to be together and fight through some seriously insane odds, and their love for each other never wavers.
*If you could be any romantic character, who would it be and why?
I’d want to be one of Kresley Cole’s characters! I love the heroines she write (and the heroes too, for obvious reasons). I think I’d either pick Mari or Chloe. Those were two of my favorites of hers!
*Which of your characters/books was the most fun to write?
Oh man! That’s a good question. Each book has it’s unique pleasures and challenges. I LOVED writing Drew and Avery’s book (Falling for His Best Friend) because their dynamic is so off-the-wall and great. On the flip side, I was in sheer bliss while writing The Marriage Contract because it was new-to-me in a lot of ways—my catnip!
*If you weren’t a writer and could be anything you want, what would it be?
Once upon a time I thought I wanted to be an FBI profiler (how the hell I got from that to romance writer is beyond me), but I think in reality I’d do better as like a used book store owner or a librarian. Something to do with books for sure, though!
An Out of Uniform Novel
by Katee Robert
Avery Yeung’s biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family’s medical history, she’s running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective—and irritatingly hot—best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor…
Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery’s dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won’t let Avery shop for a “popsicle pop.” He’ll do what’s right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.
But there’s nothing “proper” about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can’t get enough of it—or each other. And without knowing it, they’ve crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever…
