First interview: Queen of the Castle.

Interview question #1: Describe what your hero and heroine would consider the perfect date night.

Tarika and Aqil live in Long Island, NY, making some time at the beach a requirement for a great date. As soon as the weather warms up, they will drop off their daughter, Daliyah with her mom or a friend and head to the sand. A blanket and bottle of sparkling apple cider are all they need to enjoy the sand, sound of the crashing waves and each other.

Interview question #2: What does your hero love about your heroine and what does your heroine love about your hero?

Tarika’s confidence took Aqil’s breath away from the moment he met her. As someone with social anxiety, he admires the way she commands a room and strike conversations with total strangers. It took a while for him to say more than ten words to her. Once he did, his attraction became full-blown love.

Aqil is a quiet storm. Tarika almost missed getting to know the charmer hidden inside the introverted side he shows the world. When he is comfortable, Aqil is smart, funny and sexy as all get out. Whenever their alone, he brings out his alluring side, which is impossible for her to resist.

Interview question #3: For your hero and heroine, was it love at first sight or lust at first sight?

Aqil definitely feels Tarika from the first moment he saw her, but she is not interested. Although her family, friends, and the local Muslim community encourage her to get married, she is not keen on signing a matrimonial contract. So, Aqil is just another brother people are trying to ram down her throat. She will have none of that. She is a hard-to-woo woman, but Aqil is up for the challenge.

From award-winning, bestselling author, Lyndell Williams, a story of bridled desire unleashed.

Tarika is happy living single. She loves her home—her castle—and is not looking for some man to try and take over everything she has built. When her best friend, Hafsah throws Aqil her way, Tarika makes it clear that she is not interested in the shy man, who barely speaks to her. When she needs his help after an accident, she allows Aqil and his daughter into her life, making it difficult to resist his sexy gray eyes and sultry smile. The more time she spends with him, the harder it is to keep her distance.

Aqil planned to stay focused on rebuilding his life with his daughter after a messy divorce until he saw Tarika. He tries to maintain a respectful amount of space, but her confidence and beauty draw him in. He knows he has everything Tarika needs and gets closer to her, bringing them into a passionate abandon that can break down the walls of her inhibitions but may also shatter their lives.

Interview question #1: Describe what your hero and heroine would consider the perfect date night.

The closest thing to a date for Hafsah and Faheem is to meet under the purview of a chaperone. Given the heat between them and the no contact before marriage many Muslims observe, a third party is needed. So, for them, a perfect date for Faheem is one where he can take Hafsah and be alone. It can be in public. A nice restaurant would be great, as long as nobody sitting at the table with them, all caught up in their business. He follows the rules though, grateful when he can snag a friend who will keep their distance to chaperone.

Interview question #2: What does your hero love about your heroine and what does your heroine love about your hero?

When he gets a chance, Faheem will open his office door and sit at his desk, waiting and hoping that Hafsah’s laugh will drift in and brighten his day. He fell in love with her quick wit and humor. It helps him shed his seriousness and just have fun.

Hafsah first thought Faheem was all stiff. Then she made him laugh so hard during a working dinner that it filled the board room and shocked their co-workers. He quickly gathered himself and commanded everyone’s attention and respect. She loves how confident and takes charge without being an arrogant jerk about it. He knows when and how to loosen up and gives everyone their dignity.

Interview question #3: For your hero and heroine, was it love at first sight or lust at first sight?

Typical of many office romances, it was neither, especially since they both guarded their gazes – a Muslim custom of refraining from direct eye contact with a member of the opposite sex. Yeah, they did it for as long as they could, but as they got to know each other, the connection was impossible to resist.

From award-winning , bestselling author Lyndell Williams, the story of Hafsah and Faheem, a Muslim couple struggling to keep their raging desire for each other from getting out of control.

Hafsah grows closer to Faheem, falling hard for the sexy younger man. He is smooth and stokes feelings she meant to suppress.

Faheem uses all his charms to make sure Hafsah becomes his, but flirting can be a dangerous thing when committing to no sex outside of marriage. The two play with some serious fire that might burn them both.
