Gina L. Maxwell is a New York Times, USA Today, and #1 International bestselling author living in the upper Midwest, despite her scathing hatred of snow and cold weather. As a lifelong romance novel addict, she began writing as another way of enjoying her love of Happily Ever Afters.

Her debut novel in 2012, Seducing Cinderella, hit the bestseller lists within a month of its release and continues to be a fan favorite a full decade later.

When she’s not reading, writing, or spending way too much on planners and office supplies, Gina enjoys hanging out with her grown children, experiencing everything life has to offer, and dreaming of her someday-move to someplace tropical.

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)

I'm so glad you like my books. Originally, I was going to write a book for Dillon's sister, but I ended up not having time to fit it into my schedule. I have a whole slew of books that I'll be releasing this year, though, so please keep an eye out for my new sexy firefighters and maybe even a stripper or few. ;) Sorry it took so long to answer you, I'm hardly ever on Goodreads! If you're on FB, come join my reader group at www.facebook.com/groups/MaxwellMob or at the very least, head to my website and sign up for my (very infrequent) newsletter so you can keep up with all the great stuff coming in 2016. Take care!(less)

Quotes by Gina L. Maxwell  (?)

“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

“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

“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

“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.
Gina L. Maxwell, Rules of Entanglement

“Jonah takes my mouth fiercely, as though it’s his by right—and it is. Since that first stolen kiss, every part of me has belonged to him. He’s just refused to claim me. Until now.”
Gina L. Maxwell, Masked Desires

“Your brother—” “Is not my keeper,” I say with conviction. “Tell me something and be honest. If I wasn’t Callum’s sister, would you take a chance on us?” His blue eyes pierce my soul. I feel his hands tighten on my waist possessively as he answers gruffly. “You’d already be mine.”
Gina L. Maxwell, Masked Desires

“her fair skin is flawless, beckoning to me like a blank canvas beckons an artist’s brush. My need to stake my claim on her is a physical ache I can’t ignore. I want to mark her with my mouth and paint her with my come, so every man will know she’s mine.”
Gina L. Maxwell, Masked Desires

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!!!
