Only love can save them…
Wren O’Hara is waiting for the day she succumbs to mental illness like her mother. When she is attacked by a psychotic client at work, and saved by what must be an angel, she fears the time for insanity has come.
Little does she know, her savior is an immortal warrior druid named Riagan Tenman, and that he will challenge everything she ever thought she knew about reality.
Now Wren must decide if the fantasy unfolding before her is true, or if she has finally lost her mind.
Tell us a little about yourself.
Hello, and thanks for hosting me today! My name is Laire McKinney, and I write women’s fiction and fantasy romance. I love a hard-earned happily ever after almost as much as I love the tumultuous chase to get there. My debut release is a fantasy romance titled, Destiny Fulfilled. It’s sexy and fun and a little provocative. I hope readers enjoy Riagan and Wren’s story!
As for me personally, I live in the mid-Atlantic region with my family, and work part-time as a therapist. I find life a little too busy, a little too overwhelming and chaotic, but I always appreciate the beauty of life, and cherish the simple things, like a butterfly flying by or a pup’s sloppy smile.
What was the inspiration for Destiny Fulfilled?
I love fantasy—Lord of the Rings, anything King Arthur-related, Outlander, historical and paranormal romances—and I love anything medieval. The Tudors—the Showtime series—is my all-time favorite and I’ve watched the series a dozen times at least. I can get lost in these novels and movies, and knowing that inspired me to write a novel of my own incorporating the aspects, such as world-building and character development, that I love most.
What did you like most about your hero?
I adore everything about Riagan Tenman. He’s a mess in the beginning. Big, burly, brusque. But he’s also lovable and sexy and adorable in his own immortal warrior sort-of way. And as he falls for Wren, he changes into a better man, a man he feels is worthy of the woman he loves. I think he will be the character readers are drawn to most.
What’s next for you?
Book #1 in the Wildflower Ridge Series, Love on the Ridge, will release from BHC Press in 2019. It’s contemporary women’s fiction, set in beautiful and charming West Virginia where wildflowers grow more abundantly than trees and people are kind and mountain-proud. It’s the story of young love reignited, with an undertone of the importance of family and one’s roots. Check out my website for release details: www.LaireMcKinney.com.
Thanks again for having me today. Cheers! ~Laire
