Early in 2011 I had an idea. Now with my schedule then--I was writing secretly as Kiera and moving from VA to AL--I knew I couldn't do a bunch of full length book. I didn't really want to. See, my Harmless books already had that audience and I wanted to make sure they were a little different. There is no suspense and these books are more focused on the romance. They have BDSM elements in them, but they are not a complete exploration of the Dom/sub relationship.
A lot of people might wonder why. The short answer is that I wanted to, lol. One of the great things about self-publishing is that I can do those things. But, while I love writing Harmless books, the longer book, the added suspense and the bigger plot thread of the Dom/sub relationship development. Sometimes though, I just want to concentrate on the romance.
The other thing was I have had people ask me for years to write military romance. I have written them before in Operation Love but I hadn't written an entire series. Being a military wife, it is hard to find it romantic. Seriously. But we are coming to the end of our active time in the military so I decided to do it. I already had a military man in the books, Malachai Dupree, so I just spun it off with the Duprees. I have enjoyed it and plan on writing more. I have books planned through 2013 so there is a lot more to come.
