Ann Marie Walker and Amy K. Rogers share with Fresh Fiction their
Chasing Fire trilogy and Hudson Chase!
Jen: Hi, Ann and Amy! Thank you for joining us on Fresh Fiction! RELEASE
is the second novel in the Chasing Fire trilogy and itâ€™s the ongoing story
Alessandra and Hudson. I like that their story continues and each book
them with another hurdle to their HEA. This isnâ€™t as common in romance as it
in other genres although there are a few notable exceptions (Fifty
of Grey). When you were in the initial planning stages for Chasing
Fire, did you know you wanted Alessandra and Hudsonâ€™s story to span
three books or did it evolve as you wrote REMIND ME?
Ann and Amy: We had always planned for it to be a continuing series
Fifty Shades or Crossfire. While in each book Hudson and Alessandra
temporary HEA, the ending of each book is structured a bit like the season
finale of a TV show.
Jen: Writing as a team does require a different approach than writing
solo. Can you tell us how you began writing together and what youâ€™ve learned
youâ€™ve written multiple books together?
Ann and Amy: We started off bonding over lemon drop martinis and our
of alpha males and British Supermodel David Gandy. Not long after that
Chase sauntered into our lives with a story to tell. Over the past year
learned a lot about our own strengths and weaknesses and how to best
Jen: At the core of RELEASE ME is trust and forgiveness, and for Alessandra
Hudson trust does not come easily. I love that each book in the series
them closer to revealing all their secrets. While their chemistry is
itâ€™s those moments of trust when theyâ€™re vulnerable with each other that get
What was your favorite scene (sexy or sweet) to write and why?
Ann and Amy: One of our favorite scenes is when Alessandra goes to
Hudsonâ€™s office to confront him. Sheâ€™s unsure of what heâ€™ll say or how heâ€™ll
react and heâ€™s unsure about her motivation. Itâ€™s a huge leap of faith for
Jen: There is something so deliciously tempting about Hudson. Heâ€™s
intelligent, ambitious, sexy, and with an edge of danger and mystery. Who
be your dream movie star pick for Hudson and why? And Alessandra?
Ann and Amy: When writing the Chasing
Fire series, we envisioned British Supermodel David Gandy as Hudson
Chase. We don't really have anyone in mind for Allie but several readers
suggested Blake Lively.
Jen: Can you give us a peek at what you both are working on in the
Ann and Amy: We are working on something special for those people
a little more Hudson Chase.
Jen: Thank you, Ann and Amy for joining us!

I'm not familiar with this series, but it sounds like it's the perfect read that you can really sink your teeth into (no pun intended)!! This will make the perfect read to round out the Summer, and I've put it on my TBR list. I'm normally not a big fan of trilogies, but this particular story probably has to be broken up into more than one book, so it's going to be a treat to read it. Congratulations on your latest book, and I'm sure it's going to do well!!
