Interview & Giveaway - Heat: Club Inferno by Jamie K. Schmidt

HEAT: Club Inferno
Loveswept Contemporary Romance
Written by Jamie K. Schmidt
Releasing, June 3, 2014 


Style and seduction collide in Jamie K. Schmidt’s Heat—sure to please fans of Fifty Shades of Grey—as the world’s best-dressed men and women shed their clothing . . . and their inhibitions.
On the run from her abusive fiancé, ER doctor Mallory Bryant arrives at her sister’s Connecticut resort desperate for a place to restore balance to her life. But Club Inferno is more than a haven for the rich and fashionable. Beneath its elegant facade is an erotic playground where dominants and submissives play out their fantasies. At first, Mallory is wary of Max Spencer, the martial arts trainer acting as her bodyguard—until he introduces her to passion so intense she wants nothing more than to surrender to his touch.
As one of Couture’s most skilled doms, Max enjoys taking Mallory to the limits of pleasure. It’s a dangerous proposition, and as their sensual games draw them into a relationship beyond the boundaries of pupil and master, Max starts spiraling out of control. But when Mallory’s violent past catches up with her, Max knows what he must do: draw her closer than ever before, even if it means risking a surrender of his own.

A Little about Jamie K. Schmidt:

What is your writing environment?
I have a desk in the corner of my bedroom.  I’m usually joined by my big, fluffy, white cat and my little, chuiweenie dog at my feet.  I’ve got a corkboard with inspirational stuff pinned on it and some ASII character maps that I can never remember.  “EM” dash is alt 0151.

Who is your perfect hero/heroine? Why?
My grandparents.  They met when my grandmother’s brother skated her out to the middle of a pond and then left her there.  She didn’t know how to skate.  My grandfather rescued her.  I asked her if it was love at first sight and she said, “No, he was a big show off.”  My grandfather said she was the “Prettiest girl he’d ever seen.  Clumsy.  But Pretty.”  Gradually, he apparently grew on her because they got married. My grandmother told me about their vacations together.  They would go up to Cape Cod with my grandmother’s sister and husband.  The men would fish all day.  The women would clean the fish.  And they used the car as their hotel.  My grandfather and great uncle would make raviolis on my grandparents bed.  They would spread a clean, white sheet out, dust it with flour and fix the dough into pockets and stuff them with meat and cheese.  This has to be true love—what woman would put up with that?  Anyway, they suffered through hard financial times, had three children, and lived a long and happy life together.

Which authors have caught your interest lately? Why?
I’m a big fan of Stacey Kennedy’s Club Sin series.  It’s very hot and steamy.  I also like Tina Wainscott’s Justiss Alliance series.  I love all those bad boys.

What type of book have you always wanted to write?
I always wanted to write a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book.  I grew up with them as a child.  Basically, you read a section and depending on your choices, you’re directed to different pages in the book to see how your adventure plays out.  You can always go back and choose a different path. I used to love the science fiction and fantasy ones.  I always wound up a vampire’s dinner.

Top 3 things on your bucket list:
1.       Sleep in a hut in Tahiti or Bali.

2.       Be a New York Times bestselling author.

3.       Walk in a pair of Manolo Bhlanik heels.

How did you get the idea for this particular novel?
My agent Louise Fury and my editor Sue Grimshaw were discussing a series about a secret sex society and we brainstormed a little and HEAT came about from that.  LONGING is book two. it’s going to be Anya and Clint’s story.

What is your favorite scene in your newest release?
I liked the scene in the stairwell with Mallory when Max comes back from visiting his father.

What is the last movie you watched and loved?
Captain America, the Winter Soldier.  Yes, please.  I love the Avengers and all the deep, character histories.  I can’t wait for Age of Ultron.

What would you consider a “perfect date”?
A weekend in Manhattan. 

What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working on the next two books in the Club Inferno series: FEVER, Colleen and Chase’s story, and PASSION Istvahn and Nefertiti’s love story.
