By Naleighna Kai
No good deed goes unpunished, or that’s how Ellena Kiley feels after she rescues a child and the former Crown Prince of Durabia offers to marry her.
Kamran learns of a nefarious plot to undermine his position with the Sheikh and jeopardize his ascent to the throne. He’s unsure how Ellena, the fiery American seductress, fits into the plan but she’s a secret weapon he’s unwilling to relinquish.
Ellena is considered a sister by the Kings of the Castle and her connection to Kamran challenges her ideals, her freedoms, and her heart. Plus, loving him makes her a potential target for his enemies. When Ellena is kidnapped, Kamran is forced to bring in the Kings.
In the race against time to rescue his woman and defeat his enemies, the kingdom of Durabia will never be the same.
WE HAD THE DISINCT HONOR TO INTERVIEW THIS USA TODAY
BESTSELLING AUTHOR IN ISSUE 19
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
The moment that my writing opened the way to learn dark family secrets that my mother had hoped to carry to her grave. I placed the story behind being adopted by my biological into my book Open Door Marriage. Suffice it to say the physical abuse was exponential, compounded by my father not respecting my right to say no. My uncle did not respect my right to say no as well. So, I was damaged at an early age, and writing was my path to healing. I put my pain on the page, and the page became my passion. Now that passion is my purpose.
Tell us about your artistic process. How do you get from idea to finished project?
My characters talk to me. The dialogue comes first, and then I’ll cycle back to add narrative, settings, description, and back story.
