Goodreads asked Renee Bernard:

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

Renee Bernard We've all had those helpless, frustrating moments in life and in the midst of a "where are the heroic females in romance?" discussion, I had that push. I wanted to create a Very Strong character without the usual forced constructions of "spy" or "girl posing as man/highwayman/thief for a cause". I wanted a woman in the context of Victorian London who would do whatever it took to achieve vengeance (or justice depending on your seat) and who would never apologize for any of it.
