Arresting Mason by Amber Daulton
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life. That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.
Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.
When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?
Why did you write this book?
I originally wrote this book for a bad boy anthology call, but by the time I was done, I had exceeded the max word count and still wanted to add more scenes. So I forgot all about the anthology and kept revising this story until I was finally happy with it. It’s now book one in the Arresting Onyx series.
For how I came up with the plot, I must thank my subconscious since I dreamed about it. For days after, I kept thinking about the hero, the heroine, and her brother, and the characters wouldn’t leave me in peace until I wrote out a rough plotline. Though I changed quite a bit as I put the dream down on paper (or rather computer), the main premise remained the same.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love to read almost every type of romance book, but my favorite sub-genre is tied between romantic suspense and paranormal, with historical at a close second. Outside of romance, I enjoy non-fiction history books and textbooks, preferably when the subject is about Greece or the Roman Empire.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’m a big fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series, and I absolutely love Acheron. He’s my all-time favorite book character.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m currently editing the second book in the Arresting Onyx series (it should be out next year – hopefully!), and then I’ll move on the other books in the series.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Arresting Mason is the only book I have coming out for a while, but I have several books in my backlist that I’m always promoting. Who knows. Maybe I’ll run across another anthology call and actually keep to the word count this time!

Writing is the fruit of happiness.
Amber Daulton lives her life by that one belief even though she normally isn’t so Zen.
As a fan of contemporary, paranormal, and historical romance novels alike, she can’t get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Her mind is a wonderland of adventure, laughter, and awesome ways of kicking a guy when he’s down. She probably wouldn’t be too sane without her computer and notebooks. After all, what’s a girl to do when people are jabbering away in her head and it’s hard to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.
