Goodreads asked L.A.A. Law:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

L.A.A. Law The original spark came a very nice rejection by a publisher who said she would love to reconsider my first book if I could just make the couple steamier. One night, as it niggled at me and I was new to the reading of Fifty Shades and Crossfire, I decided to take one scene of my couple and see what I could do. When I woke in the morning, I realized since it didn't comport with my intent for that series, I had to stick to my original plan. That series was to be a gift for others so it had to stay neutral, but then the next evening, I couldn’t stop myself. I couldn’t help myself. Being late to the Fifty Shades of Grey party, by the time I learned of these fabulous books, all three were out and I indulged staying up until the sun began to rise, and I had to care for my family and go to work. Reading them quickly and moving to Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series to fill the void that finishing E.L. James trilogy left in my evenings, I quickly learned that sleep was overrated and reading in the peace of the evening was so beneficial. While awaiting Ms. Day’s fourth installment, not yet having a kindle, nook, or tablet and being absolutely abominable with the internet, to the point where I could not download books to read on the computer without also ensuring that my laptop got a virus or some vicious malware that would keep the Geek Squad working for hours, I had to find a new avenue to quench my thirst for such stories. Being the middle of the night and without a bookstore, I shifted away from the final installment in a series that I was in the process of publishing and began writing a fan fiction, hoping to merge my two favorite dark and dangerous characters of Fifty Shades and Bared to You into a dark character with secrets that would soon embroil him in a mystery that would bring the woman who would change his life forever falling at his feet. Unable to figure out how to post the fan fiction, the story grew and grew and now it is available to you.
