of Desire bundle answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Once upon a time, Kristina Knight
spent her days running from car crash to fire to meetings with local
police–no, she wasn’t a troublemaker, she was a journalist. Her career took
her all over the United States, writing about everything from a serial killer’s
capture to the National Finals Rodeo. Along the way she found her very own
Knight in Shining Cowboy Boots and an abiding love for romance novels. And just
like the characters from her favorite books, she’s living her own happily ever
after.
Kristina writes sassy contemporary
romance novels; her books have appeared on Kindle Best Seller Lists.
What’s your favorite down-home
family style meal?
– Since it’s what I’m cooking today, I’m going with
fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and iced tea to drink!
What’s your favorite hashtag
to watch on Twitter?
#amreading or #fridayreads – I find SO MANY amazing
books following those hashtags!
What are your hobbies?
– I love to sew. There is something so relaxing about matching fabric colors or
even completely going against color type and making something crazy and wild. I
get some of my best ideas when I’m sewing/quilting.
When you read for pleasure,
what kind of books do you choose?
– My reading preferences are all over the
place. Romances and mysteries are my go-to choices, but I love biographies,
too. I just finished Rick Springfield’s autobiography “Late, Late At
Night” and it was fab!
If the hero of your latest
book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

Hmmm….I’m going to go with Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”

Jack Harris has loved
Legs Anderson since they were kids. Now that he has her in his bed, he has no
intention of letting her go. Aunt Ada has other ideas, even from the grave.
GETTING BETWEEN JACK…
Orphaned at a young age,
Legs Anderson owes her Aunt Ada everything. The stoic old lady raised her, and
Ada’s warnings about men—and the Harris boys in particular—have stuck, even
after her death. Of course, that could be because Ada stuck around, too.
 …AND HIS LEGS
Patience is not one of
Jack Harris’s virtues, and he’s waited too long to start a life with the woman
he’s loved since childhood instead of them just knocking boots. Now Ada is
interfering from beyond the grave, haunting the old Victorian house she
bequeathed to her niece and reinforcing Legs’s fears of commitment. But Jack
won’t give up. No matter what trouble may follow, the house will be renovated,
Ada will learn to let go, Legs will put her money where her mouth is…and then
Jack’ll put his lips everywhere else.

Rendered 
Amy Boyles author of Rendered answers five easy questions to
help readers get to know her better.

Author
Bio

After living in Chicago, Louisville and New York,
Amy finally settled in North Alabama with her husband. Along with writing, she has
a passion for cooking ridiculously fattening food and complaining about weight gain.
She loves to connect with readers.
What’s your favorite down-home
family style meal?
I’m from the South and
though neither of my parents are from the area, they relocated us here when I was
five. However, it wasn’t until I was well into my twenties that I started eating
the down-home food. My favorite meal, without exception, would have to be Turkey
or Chicken and Cornbread dressing. Dear Lord. If you’ve never had cornbread dressing,
you haven’t lived. Seriously. I’ve made it enough times that I don’t use a recipe
anymore, but if you’ve never made it and you love to eat—find a recipe and try it.
Hopefully, you’ll thank me for the recommendation.
What is your go-to meal
when you dine out?
Dining out? What’s that?
I have a toddler and am expecting another child, so I don’t get to do that anymore!
That question just depresses me. Just kidding. If I remember correctly, my go-to
meal used to be Chicken Tikka Masala at just about any Indian restaurant. I love
it. From what I understand, it’s not an authentic Indian meal, but seriously it’s
so freakin’ good it makes me happy just to think about it. Eating some of that with
warm naan bread and I’m in heaven. At least for the twenty or so minutes it’ll take
me to eat it.
Who is your “book
boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
This is such an easy question!
Hands down, my book boyfriend is Daemon Sadie from Anne Bishop’s The Black Jewels
Trilogy. If you’d asked me this maybe three years ago I would’ve said Richard Rahl
from the Sword of Truth series because there’s something honest in his altruism.
But once I read Daughter
of the Blood and experienced the raw pain and deep suffering of Sadie, I was absolutely
won over. His character undergoes such an incredible arc over the span of that book
—from practically broken and brooding to being someone full of wondrous joy. It’s
an awesome journey to have been a part of. And he’s so sexy! It’s not even overt—he
simply is. Oh! And he’s dangerous, too! I wouldn’t want to cross paths with him.
If you’ve never read the book. Go. Buy. It. Now. Sadie is worth every cent.
Tell us about your favorite
toy as a child.
Ok, so I had this Wonder
Woman doll that I loved. Adored. I also had Wonder Woman underoos (aging myself,
I know) that I wore as a bathing suit. Why? Because I loved them. No, I didn’t care
that they were underwear. They signified Wonder Woman, and that was all that mattered.
Anyhoo, I had this Wonder
Woman doll. Loved her…and then I lost her. I don’t know where. I probably left her
in a store or a bathroom or something. But I remember that I dreamed about getting
another doll because I adored her so much. I dreamt that I received this gift at
Christmas. Funny thing is, I don’t remember if I ever got another doll, all I remember
is I lost her and then dreamed I got her back. Ha! That’s sort of the story of a
romance novel, isn’t it? Two people come together, then something keeps them from
each other and then they wind up together in the end. Amen to that.
When you read for pleasure,
what kind of books do you choose?
I’ll read anything. Mostly.
I read romance—contemporary, historical, whatever catches my eye, but I mainly just
want a great story. Something that takes me for a ride. I think that’s why I read
a lot of fantasy. I want to live in a world and become part of it, learn how the
magic works and be surprised by the twists and turns that great fantasy writers
throw into their novels.
What I don’t read a lot
of is crime/mystery/suspense. Not because I don’t like it, but because I’m not as
familiar with the genre. By all means, if any readers have suggestions for great
books in those categories, throw them my way. I’d love to have more books to fill
my Kindle.

About
the Book

Title Rendered (A Dark
Revolution Novella – Book Two)
Genre Romance, dystopian
Author Amy Boyles
Book heat level (based
on movie ratings): R
Ten years ago, Drian Becker underwent the Rendering, a humiliating body
exam imposed upon the masses by her father, a commander in the Patriot Army. Being
a high ranking official’s daughter, Drian thought she was safe from the practice—not
so. Her father’s betrayal left her emotionally scarred and dishonored.
It’s now 2098. Drian hasn’t thought about the Rendering since she became
leader of a rebel faction—mostly because she’s an expert at hiding her feelings
behind a thick outer wall of badass attitude.
All that changes when Colvin Hinton walks into her camp. With his easy
swagger and even easier demeanor, Colvin makes being a rebel look good enough to
taste. But when Drian finds herself tangled in his charms she lets down her guard,
giving an old enemy the chance to take her out once and for all.
If loving a man is this dangerous, would Drian have been better off remaining
in the clutches of her father and living with the scars of being Rendered?

Barbara White Daille author of The Cowboy’s Little Surprise answers
five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Barbara White Daille lives with her husband in the sunny U.S.
Southwest, where they don’t mind the lizards in their front yard but could do without
the scorpions in the bathroom.
A writer from the age of nine and a novelist since eighth grade,
Barbara is now an award-winning author with a number of novels to her credit.
The first book in The Hitching Post Hotel series, The Cowboy’s
Little Surprise, debuts in April 2015, followed by A Rancher of Her Own in July
and an as-yet-untitled book in December.
When you read for pleasure,
what kind of books do you choose?
Romance, romantic suspense, mystery. Sometimes YA. Whatever it
is, I like something with a romantic relationship in it.
What’s your favorite down-home
family style meal?
Pot roast with carrots, potatoes, onions, and brown gravy, with
plenty of everything for leftovers. Yum!
What is your go-to meal
when you dine out?
Really, Alaskan King crab legs, but since they’re pricey, I only
do that if we’re celebrating something special. On a regular night out, anything
Italian—lasagna, baked ziti, stuffed shells. A salad on the side. A full bread basket
with warm olive oil and herbs. My only regret is most Italian restaurants don’t
serve brownies or chocolate cake!
Describe the perfect vacation.
A condo near a beach, where we could take long walks at night,
view the stars and listen to the surf. Nearby, there would have to be good restaurants,
an ice cream parlor, and a shop that sold decadent chocolate desserts. And of course,
I’d have to have access to many quiet, comfortable spots where I could curl up with
a book.
Tell us about your favorite
toy as a child.
My favorite toy was a book. I don’t mean to “cheat,”
but I wasn’t into much of anything else. I spent all my free time reading—and wish
I could still do that now. A book was always at the top of my list when anyone asked
what I wanted for my birthday or Christmas, and I loved loved LOVED getting the
next Bobbsey Twins or Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden in the series.

Describe the perfect vacation.
I get to take the perfect vacation every year. The husband and
I rent a small cabin and spend an entire week on a lake. There’s no cell phone reception,
no television, no laptop. It’s just us having a ton of fun and relaxing as we escape
the insanity of day-to-day life. We may or may not be competitive about the actual
fishing part.
Tell us about your favorite
toy as a child.
Outside. I know, that’s not very exciting but I enjoyed playing
outdoors using my imagination. I grew up on a family farm and played with my cousin
daily. I was usually Spiderman and he was a random bad guy. I don’t know how I managed
not to get impaled by rusty metal while “scaling” barrels and anything
else I could find.
What are your hobbies?
Fishing remains my most favorite hobby. It has been an excellent
skill to teach my daughter and try to teach my son ( who doesn’t care how to tie
a proper fisherman’s knot.) I also really enjoy gardening. Next to making babies,
it’s the best way to create life.
