He scared me.  He thrilled me.  And after one touch, all I could think about was getting more...

Makayla never thought she'd set foot in an underground mixed-martial arts club.  But if anyone needs a medic on hand, it's these guys.  Trouble is, at her first sight of the club's owner she's the one feeling breathless.

The man they call Torment is all sleep muscle and restrained power.  Whether it's in the ring or in the bedroom, he knows exactly when a soft touch is required and when to launch a full-on assault.  He always knows just how far he can push.  And he's about to tempt Makayla in ways she never imagined.

Today's stop is Five Fun Facts about our book.

Five Fun Facts about Against the Ropes

  1. I interviewed several MMA fighters while researching Against the Ropes.  It was an incredible sacrifice but I wanted to ensure my readers had an authentic experience (I certainly did!).
  2. I spent a few days watching UFC events and then practiced my new moves on DH so I could write authentic choreography for the fight scenes.  He's still recovering.
  3. To get in the mood for fight club scenes, I listened to "The Best MMA Training Tracks- Fight Your Way Through the World."
  4. To get in the mood for sex scenes, I pretended I hadn't seriously injured DH while practicing my "ground and pound" and "rear naked choke hold" moves.
  5. In one scene, Makayla accidentally flings a beet across a fance restaurant.  Although beets are not a favorite food in our household, I bought a whole jar of beets and then set the munchkins to flinging them across the kitchen so I could assess speed, trajectory, and damage factor.  They thought they had died and gone to heaven.  They also thought I was the coolest mom EVER ! 

Recovering lawyer, karate practitioner, and caffeine addict, Sarah Castille worked and traveled abroad before trading her briefcase and stilettos for a handful of magic beans and a home near the Canadian Rockies.  Her steamy, contemporary romantic tales feature blazingly hot alpha heros and the women who tame them.

  1. I really need to learn more about the moves such as "ground and pound" and "rear naked choke hold". Dirty things come to my mind, but I am not sure if that is what they actually are, LOL.
