Interview & Giveaway - Last Day of My Life by Lani Lynn Vale

Lani Lynn Vale is back with the fourth book in her Freebirds series, LAST DAY OF MY LIFE! Ex-soldiers, bikers, hot alpha heroes and feisty heroines, oh my! Lani is joining us today so please give her a warm welcome and be sure to pick up LAST DAY OF MY LIFE today!

Let's learn a little about Lani Lynn Vale:

What is your writing environment?
I write in my living room on a kitchen table.  I have three kiddos that are under 5.  They don’t like when I’m behind closed doors.  J

Who is your perfect hero/heroine and why?
Perfect hero- I’m a nice person (Most of the time) and I like to read about nice heroes.  The ones where the man is attentive, caring, faithful and an alphahole.  I don’t want him to be a pushover, and I like my men a little rough around the edges, but still nice enough to see when they’re being mean and apologize accordingly.
My heroine- well she has to be strong, supportive, and caring.  She has to understand that her hero isn’t the type of man that’s going to let the woman be in danger, and deal with it.  She IS NOT too stupid to live.  She will be smart in any situation, and take into consideration what her man would do if he found out she was doing something stupid.

What authors have caught your interest lately and why?
I’m a humor with my romance type of person, and I recently discovered R. S. Grey when I read Scoring Wilder.  I laughed throughout the entire book.  If there’s humor and love, that’s my kind of book.

What type of book have you always wanted to write?
Historical.  I’ve not worked up the courage yet, but I’m working on it.  I LOVE highlanders!!

Top 3 things on your bucket list?
1.        I want to go skydiving.

2.       Get my concealed handgun license

3.       Get my scuba diving certification along with my husband and go somewhere with crystal clear water.

How did you get the idea for this particular novel?
Honestly, I just started writing a scene, and it turned into this.  I didn’t really have a particular direction that I was going with this book.  It just kind of happened.

What is your favorite scene in your new release?
There is a part towards the end of the book when Jack wakes up in the hospital.  He has one thing and one thing only on his mind, and that’s seeing his woman.  I loved the way he demanded it, despite the situation.

What are you working on now and when can we expect it to be available?
I’m working on the second book in the Heroes of Dixie Wardens MC series.  It should be available Fall of 2014!

What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Read, of course!  I read just about anything if it has a happy ending.

What is one interesting fact about you that readers don’t know?
I read the epilogue’s first in every single book I read.  If there’s no happy ending or it ends in a cliffhanger, it goes on the back burner until the next book out in that series does!

 If you could be anything BUT a writer, what would you be?
I would want to own my own bookstore.  I can think of no better way to spend my day but surrounded by books.

Series: Freebirds #4
Author:  Lani Lynn Vale
Published: June 30, 2014
Genre: Contemporary MC Romance

She's been known as Jane for the last seven years.  Have you ever felt lost?  Well she knows lost.  She’s the definition of lost.  Cruelly beaten within an inch of her life?  Check.  No memory of anything that's happened since she woke up from that beating?  Check.  Losing a child, especially one she didn’t remember conceiving?  Check.  Jane has been sent away from her home of the past seven years by a hot older biker that tells her that her life’s in danger.  His solution is to send her to a place that’s the home of a man that she feels a connection with instantly.  A bone deep connection.


Jacks spent the last seven years in a depression.  After the death of his young wife while on his first tour of duty in Afghanistan, he hasn't seen the appeal of participating in the world around him.  He’s lost everyone that’s ever meant anything to him.  His mom.  His dad.  His sister.  His wife.  Why make any more connections?  They’re just going to die.  The only things keeping him on this earth with boots firmly planted are his brothers who fought with him during hell on earth, and his best friend, the man that was there for his wife when he couldn't be.  The one who promised to keep her safe, and didn’t.  Then he loses one of those things, and Jack really has nothing left.  He comes home to an empty bed, and dreams of what used to be, caught up in a never ending nightmare that never ends.  Until she screams his name, that is.


A name is the first memory that has surfaced in her brain in the last seven years.  That name is Jackopa.  Her husband.
