Guest Author Q&A with Tijan- Just my all time favorite romance writer!

2018 has started really well here at Glimpses Of My Books! 
Last month I had one of my all time favorite Young Adult writer gracing us with her presence (Morgan Rhodes), this month I have the author that has in a very short period of time became my ALL TIME favorite romance writer (seriously... I have read about 10 of her books and just bought another 4 this week)! To think I didn't know her this time last year... sacrilege! 
If you like sexy romance stories with depth and great characters give her books a go!
Check out this post for the review on her latest book, Ryan's Bed

Some of Tijan's books that I have come to Love

I am so very excited to do this Q&A with you!
Ever since I found your books (thanks to a bookstagram friend) I have been hooked. And your last book, Ryan’s Bed, was pure perfection!

THANK YOU!!!

When did you start writing? Was it a hobby at first or did you always wanted to be a writer?

This will make me sound crazy, but it really was because I was going to go nuts if I didn’t. I never considered myself a writer, but I had these characters and worlds and storylines in my head. They just kept coming, more and more. So, one day I was at my family’s cabin and I couldn’t take it anymore. I turned my dad’s old computer on, not even knowing if it would work, and then I started typing. As soon as I began, it clicked with me. I knew that I had to be a writer. I was as surprised as everyone else!

When you are not writing what genre do you enjoy reading? 

I enjoy young adult, paranormal romance, and lately I’ve started getting into psychological thrillers/suspense books. Very fun!

Of all the books you have written, do you have a favorite? Which one?

No favorite! I tend to love the one I’m writing, but I think that’s more because I have to enjoy it to write it, you know?

Your books are all very different from each other, mafia romance, high school romance, supernatural… where do you get your ideas/inspirations from?

Who knows. Lol! Could be just an idea, a feeling, a movie, a song. I wrote Cole because I had an idea driving through an intersection one day.

Your newest release, Ryan’s Bed, made me cry my heart out. It is a tad heavier than the other books from you that I have read. How along did take you to write it? How hard was it? And what was the inspiration for it?

I started writing it a year ago, then had to push pause for a bit. I started it again recently and it probably took me three months to finish! I don’t really know where the inspiration came, to be honest.

What other books do you have coming out this year that we should keep an eye on? I am ‘no-so-secretly’ dying for Carter 3, is it happening?

I’m not sure about Carter 3. The characters are just not talking to me. I have actually quite a few more young adult books chirping though. I’m hoping to get Heather Jax’s book out, and then we’ll see what projects I can finally share! I do have Bad Boy Brody coming May 7th too!

And for the fun of it… if you were to give Ryan’s Bed a sound track, what 2-3 songs would be on it?

Barbies by Pink, Broken People by Rag n Bone Man, Punching in a Dream- stripped by The Naked and Famous, Oh Brother by Cyrus Reynolds.

Thank you so so so much for being with me and my readers today! I am very much looking forward to reading your other books!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother
