Gina L. Maxwell is a full-time writer, wife, and mother living in the upper Midwest, despite her scathing hatred of snow and cold weather. An avid romance novel addict, she began writing as an alternate way of enjoying the romance stories she loves to read. Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, hit both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists in less than four weeks, and she’s been living her newfound dream ever since.

When she’s not reading or writing steamy romance novels, she spends her time losing at Scrabble (and every other game) to her high school sweetheart, doing her best to hang out with their teenagers before they fly the coop, and dreaming about her move to sunny Florida once they do.

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)

Yes, I finally have an update. I was told October, but then I heard murmurings of maybe even moving it up to September.

“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!!!
