Lori Foster Talks about A PERFECT STORM


We welcome back Lori Foster to talk about the final book in her Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series, A PERFECT STORM, in stores in April. A PERFECT STORM marks a return to the world of mercenaries and the sort of action and danger faced by Dare, Trace and Jackson in 2011's WHEN YOU DARE, TRACE OF FEVER and SAVOR THE DANGER.

Describe A PERFECT STORM in 15 words or fewer.

Lori Alpha hero meets Alpha heroine. Wills clash, sparks fly, emotions tangle, and satisfaction a waits.

Which character in each of the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor novels do you identify with the most?

Lori I don't identify with any of them! LOL. They're all beautiful, young, in some ways tragic, and they're involved in exciting romances. I married at 19, hubby and I were made for each other (no tragedy and no danger) and I'm as boring as a woman can be. But I guess... since Molly was a writer, I can relate to that.

Where do you do most of your writing?

Lori My office is in the downstairs of our house. It's like an apartment - 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchenette, French doors facing the pond, big screen TV, treadmill... it's where my 2 youngest boys were before they moved off to college. Since they're all grown and on their own now, we had a custom desk built for the space and while we're in town, I write there.

We also have a lake house we bought last year, and we're in the middle of having part of that space remodeled to include a better desk area for me. Before the remodel, I wrote from the patio table in the sun room at the lake house, facing the lake. :-)

Why did you choose to give Arizona and Spencer such painful backgrounds versus some of the other leads in the series?

Lori I don't choose those things - the characters do. Arizona came about during Jackson's story. He sort of told me about her (at the same time he was telling the readers, btw) and during Jackson's book, after he introduced us to Arizona, she was in a bar... and Spencer just showed up. I said, "Well hello there,"and he proceeded to tell me about his story. I know, that makes me sound nuts. Aren't all writers a little crazy?

What is, in your opinion, the key to a great romance novel?

Lori Great romance!!! I don't care who the characters are, what their backgrounds are, the conflicts - both emotional and external - that they have to deal with. If the romance is there, popping off the page, then I'll love it. We as readers have to feel it, and we have to believe it.

Now available: A PERFECT STORM

Spencer Lark already knows too many secrets about Arizona Storm, including the nightmare she survived and her resulting trust issues. But in order to expose a smuggling ring—and continue avenging his own tragic past—the bounty hunter reluctantly agrees to make Arizona a decoy. Yet nothing has equipped him for her hypnotic blend of fragility and bravery, or for the protective instincts she stirs in him.

Arizona wants to reclaim her life, which means acting as bait to lure the enemy into a trap. Sure it's dangerous, especially with a partner as distractingly appealing as Spencer. But as their plan—and their chemistry—shifts into high gear, Arizona may discover there's an even greater risk in surrendering her heart to a hero...
