Alanna Lucas (Author Interview)
Please tell us something unique about you we can’t learn from your bio.
I have a Masters Degree in Art History and studied in Paris *mumbles into hand* years ago.
What inspired you to write romance fiction?
All the characters in my head, plus, I love writing happily ever afters.
What’s your research process?
When I start a new project, I usually take several weeks to just research. I start by perusing my bookshelf and looking through class notes. I keep a journal and record sources, character descriptions, inspirations, story ideas…all sorts of things. I usually get sidetracked along the way and spend way too much time reading instead of researching for my story.
Which of your heroes would you most like to date and why?
The hero in my current WIP, Captain Grant Alexander. He has a good heart, is compassionate and caring, intelligent, and really handsome. Plus, he’s a good kisser 😉
Do you have any plans to branch out into other genres?
For NaNoWriMo this year, I decided to branch outside my comfort zone and write contemporary. I am still working on the story, so we’ll see what happens.

About A Cowboy’s Mistletoe Promise
After running away from her abusive husband, Michaela Akerman hopes to find peaceful solitude in the beautiful frontier territory of Montana…until a dangerous gunslinger comes to town and all her hopes and dreams are turned upside-down.
It took Michaela Akerman years to garner the courage to leave her abusive husband. Sneaking out in the dead of night, she embarked on what she hoped would be a better life. In Cottonwood, Montana, she’s found anonymity and a kind of happiness. Although she longs for more, she is content with her little cottage on a ranch outside of town, and she works for wonderful people who’ve become like a family.
Gunslinger Drake Jaeger has always lived life by his own rules, doing whatever it takes to survive, and now he has the opportunity to seize his lifelong dream. All that he has to do is help a man who once saved his life. All that stands in his way is the fetching Miss Michaela Akerman. And Christmas. Dark secrets are about to be revealed, and to complete his job Drake must put duty over everything—including the sudden allure of all that’s good and true. And love.
