Meet Cassie Miles

In a twist of fate, midwife Kelly Evans is the only person to hear the last words of a dying man. Although the words make no sense, someone thinks she knows more than she should. And millionaire playboy Nick Spencer may just be her fiercest protector. If his uncle was murdered, Nick fears the Spencer fortune is at risk. And worse, that Kelly, an innocent bystander, may be in danger. When a hostage situation traps Kelly within the killer's grasp, Nick knows he holds the key to her release. He'll do anything to save her life—even if it costs him his own.

What or who inspired the hero for HOSTAGE MIDWIFE?
CASSIE: My fantasy version of the gorgeous Jon Hamm – a guy who is big, competent, cool and has a sense of humor. 

What or who inspired the heroine for HOSTAGE MIDWIFE?
CASSIE: A woman who finds the strength to deal with her failed marriage, reclaim her past and truly start over.  As a bonus, she gets a rich, handsome, eligible bachelor. 

Is there a hero you’re just dying to write about for Intrigue? 
CASSIE:  Hard question because I’ve written about many Intrigue guys who I’d love to meet.  Maybe somebody with super-powers, like flying or turning invisible. 

Where would your hero “pop the question” to your heroine (hopefully no story spoilers)?
CASSIE: Since he’s a class act, I’d expect him to take her to a private chateau in Aspen or a 5 star hotel.  The ring would be pure gold from his family’s mine.

What’s the perfect Valentine’s Day date for your characters from HOSTAGE MIDWIFE?
CASSIE: Rock climbing.  (These people are nothing like me.)

GOTTA ASK: If you had to choose a movie to describe HOSTAGE MIDWIFE, which would it be?
CASSIE’S GOTTA ANSWER:  There’s a lot of DIE HARD in the hostage situation.

Do you like couples on the cover or just heroes?

    I like all kinds of covers. It doesn't really matter to me if the cover has just the hero or the couple. My only problem is when the cover models don't match the description of the characters in the story. For example a blond hero when his hair is actually suppose to be brown.


    1. I have that same problem...makes me unable to look at the cover while I'm reading.

  2. I like the couple on the cover. I especially like a sexy set-back cover!

    1. Karen..."sexy-set" ?? I'm curious...what is this?

  3. I like both. But, I would like to see more couples on the Intrigue covers

  4. I like couples on the cover better than just the hero.

    1. I'm curious, Maureen... does it help you have an image of both characters while you read?

  5. Cassie, welcome to Get Lost in a Story. A hostage midwife, now there's a different plot. The excerpt is great and I love the location! Isn't it amazing our characters can do so much more, e.g. rock climbing, then us? Best wishes on your fantastic storytelling!

  6. WELCOME TO GLIAS, Cassie! Nice to have you here. Personally, I like heroes on the covers, but heroines don't bother me. I've only ever bought one book because of the cover art --way back at the turn of the century-- Dara Joy's MINE TO TAKE. But I'll admit, I'd read other works by Dara and had an idea of what I was getting.

  7. Hi Cassie! Welcome to GLIAS! You've made another fabulous addition to my growing list of Intrigue books I must read now! Even though my own book just has the hero on it, I actually like couples--but mostly I love covers that show something from the story. There are countless covers of just guys out there (for every genre) and they become generic-looking after a while. I'd love, as I said, to see covers go back to depicting something that really happens in the book. (I always have been a dreamer!) Your cover, btw, seems to do just what I love--can't wait to pick up the book!

  8. I like both kinds of covers.


  9. I like both types of covers, depends on the book.

  10. Wow- my first comment disappeared. Pretty sure I said I like both couple and just the guy. I do think the picture on the cover should match the character details in the book.
