About this author

Gina is a shameless romance addict with no intentions of ever kicking the habit.

Growing up she dreamed of helping people escape reality with her acting abilities…until college when she realized she had none to speak of. Another ten years passed before she discovered a different means to accomplishing the same dream: writing stories of love and passion for addicts just like her.

Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, landed on the USA Today and NY Times Bestseller lists in less than a month. Now she splits her time between writing more books and acting as Boss of the world’s first organized romance mafia, the Maxwell Mob.

Thanks to the support she receives from her amazing family, Gina is finally able to live her dream of bringing a little roma

I can't give you an exact date, but Sweet Victory should be out in early spring of 2015. I'm really excited for my readers to experience Xander's story and meet his heroine, Sophie. ;)

There WILL be a 5th book to end the Fighting for Love series. I don't have a name for it yet, but it's Corey's story. We met Corey way back in Rules of Entanglement as Jax's friend and sparring partner. So we'll be heading back to Oahu (yay!) for that one.

After that, I plan to do a spin-off series of 3 books that will take us a few years into the future of that world. So the readers will see all the FfL characters in the background (happily married, toting toddlers and such) as minor roles of the 3 fighters I'll focus on for that short series. However, the tone of those books will be a bit grittier because they'll be single-titles as opposed to category romances.

Thanks for the question!(less)
Gina L. Maxwell Getting to meet and interact with my readers, and knowing that my stories and characters have touched others in some small way.

“Lucy Marie Maris...I am completely and utterly in love with you. And as god is my witness- no matter how long it takes- someday I will be worthy enough to be your husband, because I can't bear the thought of living without you.”
Gina L. Maxwell, Seducing Cinderella

“Was it possible to physically feel the moment you lost your heart to someone? Because Lucie was fairly sure she'd just lost hers, and the spot where it should have been literally hurt.”
Gina L. Maxwell, Seducing Cinderella

“Since when?” she challenged.

“Since when has my heart been with you?” She nodded. He stepped closer and framed her face in his large hands. “Quite possibly from the first time I heard you snort.” He placed a kiss on the tip of her nose. “Very probably when you flirted with our waiter.” A warm kiss on the freckle by her eye. “Almost certainly the first time you fell asleep in my arms.” A small kiss on the opposite cheek. “And most definitely the night we made love.” Finally, a tender kiss on the lips.”
Gina L. Maxwell, Seducing Cinderella

“Reid turned to Jax and with nothing more than a look, they said more things in three seconds than most women could say in three hours.
Thanks for always being there for me.
No problem, you've done the same for me.

I love your sister, man, I'll do whatever it takes to make her happy.
I know you do, and I know you will. Plus, if you don't, I'll break your fucking legs.
Fair enough.
Then let's do this.
Hell yeah.

Hi, Nickel! So thrilled you loved RoE! Of COURSE I have a hero inspiration for Jax. I do for all my characters! So here's the scoop.

Nickel D Just finished Rules and of course, LOVED IT. (As expected) So, since the perfection known as Parker Hurley inspired your first book... I am DYING to know who inspired you to create Jax? I mean, I get that it's difficult to find anyone comparable to Mr. Hurley, but if there is.... You MUST SHARE!!!! Guess I'm a visual person... yep, that's it, so where's our pics of Jax??? lol Keep doing what you're doing, because it's obviously working!!!
