Long story. Recently she has taken up Crossfit, Jiu Jitsu and boxing.
As part of her blog tour with Entangled Publishing, to promote the third and final installment of the Caldwell Sisters series, she answered a few questions of mine.
You can find my run down of the series posted here.
What got you started writing romance?
The birth of my baby girl two years ago.
These novellas fall into the contemporary category, have you explored other
genres within romance?
Only romantic suspense.
The novellas take the characters to quite different parts of the globe.
The descriptions were rich and vivid, like you had experienced them. Have
you travelled to these locations yourself? What resources do you use to
help flesh out your writing?
I’ve been to Guatemala and the Virgin Isles, yes. Google!
All of the Caldwell women are quite forthright, which is a great strength,
and I thought helped the reader feel an instant connection with the
characters of Margo and Allison, after meeting Jane. What other traits
(either strengths or weaknesses) do you find yourself drawn to writing into
I amplify my own traits and weaknesses. Any future heroines I write will be well able to take care of themselves, physically and otherwise.
I loved the differences between the sisters, as well as the differences in
the men each of them found themselves with – how do you go about making the
match ups for your books?
I sometimes cast my writing by picking out a-listers from Hollywood and
putting their photos next to one another. Often, they “click” and there it
What are you working on now, and is there anything in particular you’re
hoping to explore with your writing in the future?
I’m leaving writing to become a police officer. Finally living the dream,
rather than putting it on paper 🙂
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 naïve 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?
