New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Nina Lane writes hot, sexy romances about professors, bad boys, candy makers, and protective alpha males who find themselves consumed with love for one woman alone.

Originally from California, Nina holds a PhD in Art History and an MA in Library and Information Studies, which means she loves both research and organization. She also enjoys traveling and thinks St. Petersburg, Russia is a city everyone should visit at least once. Although Nina would go back to college for another degree because she's that much of a bookworm and a perpetual student, she now lives the happy life of a full-time writer.

Hi Imani! Thanks for your question.

The whole SPIRAL OF BLISS series actually started as a short erotic story about a woman who is trying to get pregnant. That was all I knew when I sat down to write one afternoon. And then Liv West walked right into my head and started chattering away, and she just WOULD NOT SHUT UP. It was like she was talking and I was just writing down what she said.

So then as I kept writing (and Liv kept talking), I discovered it was really the story of a passionate married couple who love each other beyond all reason and I started exploring the idea that their story was about what happens AFTER the happily ever after. Needless to say, I ended up living in Liv and Dean's world for a long time, and I still miss them!(less)

Thanks for the question! I wish I had a definite answer for you, but unfortunately I don't because it depends on the reader. I've had some readers tell me the ending of Arouse completed the story for them, although honestly Liv and Dean have a lot mo See Full Answer

“Liv,” he said, his voice rough with tenderness, “you don’t have to be afraid.”

“Why not?”

“Because I’ll slay monsters for you.”
Nina Lane, Arouse

“Maybe this was meant to happen, this discovery of cracks where now a different, new light can shine through.”
Nina Lane, Arouse

“Since the day we met, I haven’t wanted anyone but you, never looked at another woman, never thought about one. It’s always been you Olivia.”

Nina Lane LOL! No, Devour and Rogaine are put out to pasture (probably for the better...ahem). I still think the Cossacks have more story to tell, though...

I remember being so mad they wouldn't let you dedicate the book to me. HAHAHAHAHA. What about Devour and Rogaine (Devora/Rohan)?

*and I'm completely hyperventilating at the sequel. Don't tease me so.*

Nina Lane Thank you, Tonya! I'm nervous and excited too. :-D ALLURE is well underway, and we're hoping for an April release date provided all goes smoothly. Fingers, toes, eyes, etc. are all crossed.

It's my #1, 24-hour-a-day, thinking-about-it-in-my-sleep project, so as soon as I'm completely happy with it and have a specific date, I'll let you know. So happy you're enjoying Liv and Dean's story!
