His Earth Maiden by Michelle M Pillow
Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Former elite Federation soldier, now turned space pirate, Jackson Burke has done his best to turn his life around—for the better. He isn’t prepared when fate leaves a woman’s safety totally in his hands. Since heroes don’t leave a damsel in distress—and despite being outlaw pirates, the crew considers themselves the good guys—Jackson assumes responsibility for the beauty. It’s enough that his ship is held together by rust and sheer will, now he’s got to keep this good guy thing straight and not give into the urges the sassy female brings out in him. Raisa is everything a man could want and for some reason she seems to like him, rough edges and all, but he’s on the Federation’s wanted list and they aren’t known to back down.
Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes. Over the course of my career I’ve published in almost every romance genre: Science Fiction, Futuristic, Paranormal, Shifter, Vampire, Ghost, Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Parallel Universe/Alternate Reality, Historical, and ChickLit. I also just released my third Cozy Paranormal Mystery.
How do you come up with ideas?…
Getting out and living life is one of the best ways to be inspired with ideas. They’re always floating around me waiting to be plucked. Some of the best ideas happen when you’re not looking for them. And, the experience of doing can inform the writing and make it stronger.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
With the actual craft? World building. It’s fun to take my research, experiences, and imagination and create something new out of it. If I know the world, then I can know who might live in that world, and what might happen to them. It’s the foundation for everything.
When did you write your first book?…
My first book was published in 2004, so over 15 years now. When I started I honestly thought I would only write historical romances. My first book published was a Regency ghost story romance (The Mists of Midnight, now re-titled Forget Me Not).
It was after that book released that the editors contacted me because they wanted authors to fill out their Sci Fi Romance list. I agreed but was convinced I was not a sci fi writer. I was a historical writer. I laugh at younger me now. I still love historicals and I use history to infuse my worlds, but I am most definitely a sci fi writer (among other genres). That first sci fi series, Dragon Lords, is part of one of my most popular series collections, the Qurilixen World. Space Lords: His Earth Maiden, my newest futuristic space pirate book, is part of that world.
