Blurb:
Return to the magical kingdom of Noventia in Book 4 of Robin Danner's The Princes series. When a carriage ride turns into a robbery, The Duke of Aronia is determined to see the thief punished and his property returned. Little did he realize the quest for vengeance would lead to unexpected surprises, danger, and love!
The Duke of Aronia has it all—good looks, admiration, and the love of his royal family. The one thing he no longer has is a signet ring given to him by his beloved grandfather. To find his ring, Niall is prepared to do whatever it takes.
Wren Mosley has lost everything—her parents, her husband, even her home. She resorts to robbery to protect those she loves. On a snowy night, she encounters the duke and steals his ring. Little does she know agreeing to help him recover it will take them both on a journey into danger and love.

Interview

Tell us about your story's world. What is it like in this period or place?
In my Princes series, much of the stories take place in Noventia, a fictional kingdom. For this book, I headed to Aronia, a neighboring kingdom that is like the "Paris" of the semi-historical world I've created.
What inspired you to write this book?
This is the fourth book in the series, so of course the preceding books were inspiration. But I mostly drew on the Robin Hood tale as I created Wren and Niall's story. It was fun to create a role reversal, which is typical in my books. Men aren't the only ones who get to have all the fun!
Which character in your current book do you think readers will like the most? Why?
Definitely Wren. Although her brother, Wilhem, is quickly becoming a favorite. Wren is a strong heroine, one who is determined to protect what she loves. It's easy to fall a little in love with her.
Why do you write?
I write because I enjoy it. No matter whether it gets published or not, I love weaving a story and making it turn out exactly how I want it to. Even though sometimes my endings even surprise me!
When you're not writing, what would we find you doing?
Sleeping, I hope! If I'm not at the day job, I'm pretty much stationed at the computer. There is so little time as it is, that I have to squeeze in writing as much as I can.
When an idea hits you, what do you do to capture it?
Typically titles come to me first, so I usually jot them down in my "Story Idea" folder if I'm at my computer. If I'm away from home, I make a note in my cell phone for future reference. Inspiration comes to me when I'm driving usually, which is always a coin toss on whether I'll actually remember it by the time I get where I'm going.
What's the best gift you ever received?
Do you believe in luck?
Since I'm fond of blackjack, I would have to say yes. Also happy to say I'm a fairly lucky person…or maybe I just always look at the silver lining.
Do you play any musical instruments?
I can play the piano a tiny bit. I also play the clarinet. Band geek here!
What is your secret talent?
I can blow a chewing gum bubble with my nose.
What's your favorite movie?
Sommersby, a Civil War-era movie featuring one of my faves, Richard Gere.
Are you the eldest, middle, baby, or only child?
I'm two of these actually. I'm the middle child, but I'm the only girl. So that means I'm special. ; )

Please complete the sentence

I love pizza with mushrooms.
I'm always ready for bed.
When I'm alone, I must be daydreaming cause I'm never alone.
You'd never be able to tell, but I'm very shy.
If I had a halo it would be the one Beyonce sings about.
If I could win the lottery I'd retire.
I can never eat seafood because it stinks.

    2. It's a series. The original 2 books were going to be "Bound" and "Determined" but since Bound was already taken at LSB, we put The Princes in front. It ended up becoming a 5 book series, so I kept The Princes with each book. The Princes Knighted is the 3rd book. "Wanted" and "Needed" are the 4th and 5th books. Just a play on words mostly.
