Author Interview- Sue Lyndon

Please help me welcome one of my favorite spank-tastic authors. She's chatting about her newest release, Surrender.


 
I’m a sucker for a plot with an arranged marriage, and I love historical romances, particularly medieval and Viking romances. I knew I wanted to write a book with an arranged marriage in it, but the thought of writing a medieval or other historical book gave me a headache. So, I decided to write a science fiction romance. Why sci fi? Well, I’ll be honest. I didn’t have to do any fact checking as I was writing. It was nice to write and completely let go without worrying about how people talked “back then” or what kind of clothing they wore. Plus, I think world building is fun.

Surrender blurb:

Love with the enemy can be the ultimate surrender…

Fiona Lockhart struggles to survive after Earth is conquered by powerful aliens. She knows it's only a matter of time before her schizophrenic mother acts out at the wrong time and place and brings down the wrath of their captors. So when turncoats offer Fiona a way to keep her mother safe, she can't refuse—even though it means marrying a Kall warrior and posing as the First Daughter, Betsy Carson.

Kall warrior Merokk has mixed feelings about marrying a human woman, but it's his duty and he can't refuse. He enjoys taming the headstrong Betsy, and a good spanking now and then makes the passion burn. The sex is sizzling, and as the months pass, Merokk discovers the feelings for his little wife run deep. But when he learns of her deceit after the real Betsy Carson surfaces, Merokk's new world shatters. Can he learn to forgive Fiona, or will he spend the rest of their lives punishing her for a crime she never wanted to commit?

Excerpt:

“Are you aware of the marriages that are to take place between Kall warriors and Earth people as part of the peace treaty?” Crooked Teeth asked.

A sinking feeling came over Fiona. “Somewhat.”

“President Carson’s daughter is supposed to marry a Kall warrior named Merokk in three days, but she’s run off and no one can find her. This is one of the most important unions between the Kall and Earth people. If the marriage doesn’t take place, it would be a violation of the treaty.” Pudgy Man’s hand nervously brushed against the back of his neck. The turncoats exchanged a worried glance.

Fiona wasn’t stupid. She knew where this was going. She spoke slowly, as if in a trance. “Let me guess. You’ll help my mother if I pretend to be Betsy Carson?”

“You got it, Miss Lockhart. If you agree to help us, we’ll place your mother in a medical resort in the Caribbean. Safe and sound,” said Crooked Teeth.

“How did you find me?”

“I saw you standing in the crowd today during the ceremony and had to do a double take. I followed you home and checked your records. Imagine my delight to discover your unique situation.” Pudgy Man smiled, but Fiona thought it was only meant to mask a sneer. He had her trapped between a rock and a hard place, as her mother would say.

This wasn’t happening.

Fiona stared at the back corner of the trailer where Janie slept. It wasn’t a hard decision to make, but it was a painful one. She doubted she’d see her mother again if she accepted this offer, but she also doubted her mother’s odd behavior would escape the bloodthirsty Kalls’ notice for much longer. Her heart broke.

 “Okay,” she whispered after several minutes of choking silence. “I’ll do it.”
