8 questions feat. Talia Hibbert
Let’s play a game of 'Kiss Marry Kill' with your own book heroes
Start with the hardest question, why don’t you?! LOL. I think I’d kiss Ruben from The Princess Trap because he always struck me as a great kisser. He’s very intense, kind of demanding, but secretly sweet.
As for marriage, I’d have to go with Zaf from my new romcom Take a Hint, Dani Brown. First of all, he reads romance novels, so we’d never run out of things to talk about. Second, he cooks—yum. And third, he’s tough as hell. I know he’d be able to handle anything, which is great, because I’m about as much use in a crisis as a haybale in a storm.
Now, which hero would I kill? I wish I had more PNR books so I could choose a hero who’d come back to life…
Your heroines, which one is most likely to a) bring world peace b) rescue a puppy c) wake up not quite knowing where she is d) couldn’t be bothered to fill out our questionnaire?
Chloe from Get a Life, Chloe Brown did once rescue a cat, so I think she’d rescue a puppy, too—although she’d grumble about it the whole way through.
Aria Granger from Sweet on the Greek is everyone’s favourite party girl, so she’d be most likely to wake up confused. Probably with her hero, Nik, lying right next to her. Those two are adorable chaos.
Aaaand finally, Ruth Kabbah from A Girl Like Her would absolutely refuse to fill out the questionnaire. She has more important things to do, like read comic books and eat pasta.
Which secondary character of yours really deserves their own book, but was done dirty by you?
Oof, so many of them. In Take a Hint, Dani Brown, there is a secondary romance I could have turned into an entire book. But I don’t want to spoil it!
What would you like to see more in romance books?
More fantasy! Fantasy romance is my absolute favourite and I can never get enough.
If you could retire one romance book trope once and for all, which one would it be?
I don’t think I’d retire any of them—even the ones I don’t enjoy. Tropes are such epic story tools, I want to see unlimited combinations!
3 romance authors you are secretly upset with because they are so darn good?
I could honestly give you three hundred. But, let’s see… I think everyone knows that if I got the opportunity, I might conk Kennedy Ryan over the head and run off with her talent. Therese Beharrie writes the kind of books I wish I’d written myself. And Nalini Singh… dear God. Every time I finish one of her stories, I have to take a day to absorb.
Which one of your books would you recommend to a new reader?

Take a Hint, Dani Brown is daring, distinctive, and delightful (ly funny).
