Wicked Dix by Monica James

Series:  Hard Romance #2
Release Date: 24th March 2016
Publisher: Bookouture
Genres:  Erotica

I am thrilled to welcome Monica James to the blog with an interview, on release day of  Wicked Dix, book 2 in the Love Hard Romance Series.

Do you write under your real name or is this a pen name you use? 

It’s my real name-how boring, right?!  I would find it extremely hard answering to anything but my name. 

Where are you from? 

 Melbourne, Australia.
List 3 interesting facts about yourself.  

It’s easy to make me laugh, I love/hate horror movies as I love/hate being scared, and it’s my dream to run an animal sanctuary. 

What was the first thing you ever had published?  

The first thing I ever published (I was a writer for my high school’s newspaper) was on the school’s cafeteria food. Super exciting! First book published was I SURRENDER. Published July 2013. 

Do you have a writing routine?  

I need a cup of coffee to get me started. After that, I let my characters take over. 

Do you have any writing rituals? 

 COFFEE! And I must drink it from my RSPCA mug. I know- I’m strange.

Where did the idea for your most recent book come from? 

My most recent book is WICKED DIX, which is Book 2 in the A HARD LOVE ROMANCE series, published by Bookouture. Book 1, DIRTY DIX, like most of my books, came to me while I was in bed, trying (trying being the operative word) to sleep. I’ve always wanted to write a book from a male’s POV and I thought if I’m going to do this, then I do this with no reservations and no safety nets.
I wanted to write a story which was such a paradox, readers would be turning each page, desperate to find out what comes next because let’s face facts, the storyline in DIRTY DIX isn’t exactly conventional. And I love that.  I love that I’ve pushed some boundaries and limits. As an author, there is no greater achievement than having a reader message you after reading your work and expressing how much they loved your book.
I’ve always been interested in psychology and I love New York, so the storyline wrote itself once I nutted out whom I wanted my character to be and where I wanted him to be doing these sinful acts from.

Who was the first person you shared your book with?  

My husband! He’s my sounding board for all my ideas. Love him to bits!

Do you have a current work in progress?  

I sure do. It’s so different to DIRTY DIX, and was quite challenging to write. Watch this space!

Do you have any advice for budding authors? 

Just keep swimming- (said in Dory’s voice from FINDING NEMO.)

I knew she was bad news when she walked into my office, but I just couldn’t help myself…

Filthy, sexy and full of surprises, Juliet is so hot she has me on fire. I’ve met my match and I can’t help going back for more.

Then there’s Madison… she’s sweet, funny and awakens in me a fierce need to protect her.

But I don’t do relationships. I don’t usually do the same woman twice.

Juliet and Madison: Two very different women have got me completely hooked.

Who will I choose?

I know who I should choose, but I never said I was the hero of this story, or even the good guy. And besides, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad?

My tale isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you’re game, strap yourself in and expect the unexpected. But don’t say I didn’t warn you…

Achingly sexy and highly addictive, Dirty Dix, the first in the Hard Love Romance series, will have you hooked. Wicked Dix coming soon…


Book 2: Wicked Dix

I’ve always been a bad boy, with a very wicked reputation.

But then I met Madison – sweet, vulnerable, innocent Madison. She makes me feel as if there is hope for me. As if I could be a good man. I need her more than I need air to breathe.

There’s just one problem: Juliet. She’s a temptress who won’t take no for an answer. If I resist her, she’ll use our dirty secret to ruin everything with Madison.

I don’t want to lose Madison, but can I really change? This is my chance to prove that I can.  But it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

Are you ready?

Seriously sexy and totally addictive, Wicked Dix is the second in the Hard Love Romance series. Find out how it all began…Dirty Dix OUT NOW.
