    U and Bad Boys
    [click the question to see answer]

    First the important question... what the heck is a Bad Boy?
    {Dianne Castell:} To me a bad boy does all the wrong thing for all the right reasons. To protect those he loves he will do whatever it takes, no holds barred.




    We will start easy, what is your latest or upcoming Brava Bad Boy title?
    {Dianne Castell:} Texas Bad Boys is out in September! YeeeeHaaaaaaaaa!!

    And it is on the front page of RT for September. Double yeeeeehaaaaaaaaaa!!

    And it got four start. I am totally thrilled about this book




    I am not familiar with how anthologies get put together. Did you write the story to fit the 'bad boy' title or did your story get submitted and just happen to work into the 'bad boy' book?
    {Dianne Castell:} I went to Rosemary and Karen and told them I had this fun idea. We all plotted the book together and came up with the mystery and how to make it work in each of our stories.

    I loooved doing this. Made the book totally fun and different than other bad boys and other anthologies period.


    Do you read the finished book and is it hard to go back and read your own work after it is published? What bad boy tale would you recommend?
    {Dianne Castell:} I really liked reading Texas Bad Boys beginning to end to see how the stories all flowed together but were still unique.

    The mystery...and the hot sexy romance... does play a big part in the books and at the end all the characters are there when the mystery is solved. I got a lot of gray hair on that one as I wrote the last story. :-)

    I love Lori Foster books! Always have one going. Right now I'm enjoying
    Jude's Law. I love Lori's kickbutt heroes and the fiesty heroines who are their match.

    I also love Stephanie Plum. The humor is terrific and Ranger and Joe are heroes to die for. I'm a real fan of first person so these stories really work for me.


    If you could write/sell anything... any genre, any setting, any plot, what would it be? Have you already written it?
    {Dianne Castell:} I'm working on a story set in Savannah. I really like the south.

    Savannah is a terrific old southern city and has a lot of unique characteristics that work well into my new series.

    I'll tell you more as soon as I sign the contract. :-)



    What's Next? We are book whores give us names, dates and summaries!
    {Dianne Castell:} I have I'll Be Seeing U out in November. It's the last book in my O'Fallon series.

    This is Quaid's story and if you're looking for a real bad boy who is still a hero, Quaid is your man. I'll miss writing the O'Fallons. After writing nearly a thousand pages about this family I feel as if they live right next door.


    I'll Be Seeing U
    Quaid is the street-tough kid adopted by the tight-knit O’Fallon clan and made into one of their own.

    He’s spent a few years in the Coast Guard Search and Rescue, but still has a hint of danger humming under the surface—and a heart fiercely loyal to the man who saved him, Rory O’Fallon. That’s why Quaid’s come back home.

    What he doesn’t expect is to run into the only person who’s ever cracked his armor, Cynthia James. His attraction has lasted years even though they’re worlds apart. She loves New York; he loves the River. She’s Vogue; he’s Field & Stream. He may be a rough-and-tumble river man, but he’s not about to let a second chance at his dream woman get away…

    2. I am so looking forward to this book coming out. But the books you are hoping to set in the South sound good. I also loved Jude's Law from Lori and you are really going to enjoy Murphy's Law the sequel.
