Summer of Romance Scavenger Hunt clue below the interview!
CV: Thank you so much for taking time to do this interview, Tiffany. I especially appreciate it because I know you are deep, deep in writing mode these days. What are you working on?
TR: Edits! This month is editing month. I’ll have edits to do on two books — One Hot December and The Night Mark. One Hot December is the third in my holiday Harlequin Blaze trilogy out this December. The Night Mark is a time travel romance that’ll be out next March. I think March? Either March or May. One of the M-months.
CV: It's not all work and no play though, right? What are you doing to enjoy the summertime?
TR: This summer I’m going to spend as much time as I can out on our new deck. This being the Pacific Northwest, that could amount to about six months. It’s June 14th today and I got caught in a hailstorm. Last week it was almost 100 degrees. It’s weird over here on the Left Coast, my friends. Very weird.
CV: I've noticed that you write a lot of holiday books and stories, with Christmas seeming to be your favourite. Do you prefer winter over summer, or is it just those holidays that especially resonate with you?
TR: I love, love, love a good Christmas romance. They’re my favorite to write and my favorite to read. Christmas is definitely my favorite holiday as well, although Halloween is a close second. But summer is my favorite season by far. I love swimming and warm nights with the windows open.
CV: In your story in The Naughty List, "A Christmas Maggie", Anya and Daniel also seem especially fond of that holiday. I haven't read enough other stories of yours with them to know — how do they feel about summertime?
TR: If you read the story that takes place before “A Christmas Maggie,” you’ll get to see that Anya and Daniel fall in love during the summer. So summer will always be special for them.
CV: Any chance we might find a steamy summer romance from Tiffany Reisz under our Christmas trees some year?
TR: My latest novel, The Bourbon Thief, is a steamy southern gothic set during summer in Kentucky and South Carolina. And next year my time travel romance The Night Mark is also set in summer. I suppose you can ask for them for Christmas but why wait?

Tiffany Reisz is the author of the internationally bestselling and award-winning Original Sinners series for Mira Books (Harlequin/Mills & Boon). Tiffany's books inhabit a sexy shadowy world where romance, erotica and literature meet and do immoral and possibly illegal things to each other. She describes her genre as "literary friction," a term she stole from her main character, who gets in trouble almost as often as the author herself.
She lives in Oregon. If she couldn't write, she would die.
