First Off, Michelle Has A New Release On A Book Shelf Near You Today
Along For The Ride by Michelle Pillow
Meet Megan Matthews, a detective who is cursed with always being right. Her instincts are good, her deductive reasoning even better. But she’s that most men find her intimidating, so she’s given up trying to find Mr. Right and has settled, perversely, for arresting Mr. Wrong.
Crime scene photographer Ryan Andrews has had a wicked crush on the sexy detective since he first took her photograph by accident at a crime scene. That picture became headline news, and she hasn’t talked to him since. He’s tried everything to get her attention, and when nothing works he’s left with only one option. But is blackmailing a cop into marriage really a good idea?

3. My Father ~ A wonderful man who instilled so many things in me
4. My Brother ~ For going out into the world and doing what he loves

Five of your favorite authors:
1. Mandy M. Roth
2. Jaycee Clark
3. Robyn Carr
4. Lauren Dane
5. NJ Walters
Describe five of your heroes/heroines through your eyes:
1. Vladamir, Maiden and the Monster ~ He’s one of my all time favorite heroes—a product of his time (the middle ages), scarred and flawed, jealous and proud, but filled with honor and responsibility.
2. Prince Reid, Lords of the Var: The Rogue Prince ~ He’s one of those heroes I love to hate. I loved him as a side character, couldn’t wait to get to his book and then fought with the darned PITA through the entire thing. Another one of those characters was Lord Malak from Naughty Cupid 3: Cupid’s Favor
3. Kat Matthews, Bit by the Bug – I loved and understood her. She’s work focused, creative, open and sees things in ways others don’t. Plus, she’s a photographer, just like I would have been in another life.
4. Wolfram and Gin, Emerald Knight ~ As a couple, these two were a challenge. They were betrothed since birth in the Middle Ages. They grew up knowing who they would marry, when and why. Beyond this, there were many external factors to the book—the Holy Crusades, death, tournaments—that made it such and interesting story. I love the Medieval set books.
5. Rick, Space Lords Series (coming soon) ~ Rick is a side character in the Lords of the Var and Zhang Dynasty books, but one of the heroes in the upcoming installment in the futuristic galaxy – Space Lords. He’s the whole reason why his crew is cursed, a smart mouthed self-proclaimed ladies man and one hell of a pilot. But, he’d also give his life for a friend. It’s going to be fun seeing what he does in his book. I can’t wait!
Five reasons to read your books:
1. I put a lot of research into them
2. I won the RT Reviewers Choice Award this year, and have several recommended read credits and great reviews
3. I feel slightly awkward typing this list, lol
4. Because you want to
5. Because I have something for most tastes—paranormal, contemporary, futuristic, dark paranormal, fantasy, historical—all romance
