Goodreads asked Alyssa J. Montgomery:

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

Alyssa J. Montgomery My latest release, "Knight of Her Heart" (penned as Alyssa James) evolved from one scene that played in my head. Up until that mental scene, I had written contemporary romances. I knew the scene would never work in a contemporary and decided to indulge in my love of history and write a historical romance.
My son has always had a love of medieval history and we spent three months in Europe in 2009 touring a lot of castles, and even returning with a genuine suit of armour! I decided then that the story would be set in medieval times. I then lived with my characters until mid 2013 when I finally sat down to write their story
