Spotlight on Dani Collins & A Convenient Ring to Claim Her

 We have author Dani Collins this week under our spotlight. She also has a new book out this month, A Convenient Ring to Claim Her (Four Weddings and a Baby Book 3)

Award-winning and USA Today Bestselling author Dani Collins thrives on giving readers emotional, compelling, heart-soaring romance with some laughter and heat thrown in, just like real life. Mostly she writes contemporary romance for Harlequin Presents and Tule’s Montana Born, but her backlist of fifty books also includes self-published erotic romance, romantic comedy, and even an epic medieval fantasy. When she’s not writing—just kidding, she’s always writing.

What inspires you to write? 


Lots of things inspire me. Sometimes it’s a line of a song, a strange headline, something in a podcast or a story someone tells about their family. Other times it’s a book I’m reading. If I’m ever stuck while writing, usually a walk outside always helps.



What is your favorite genre and why?


Romance. I mostly read contemporary, but I’ll read just about any subgenre if a book sounds interesting, from historical to fantasy to monster romance. I’m happiest if it’s spicy with a side of humor.



Share a bit about your writing process.


Usually I find it easier to write if I take the time to write a synopsis first, but I don’t always do that. Often, I need a few thousand words to get a feel for the characters and their initial chemistry. Once I have the premise and opening chapters, it’s two steps forward, one back. I write and write, then go back to the beginning, comb out the tangles, push on for a few more chapters… By the time I’m writing The End, most of the book is submission ready.


Then I send to my editor and the revision process begins, which can be a number of passes depending on the publisher.




Tell us about your book...


A Convenient Ring to Claim her is Book Three in my Four Weddings and a Baby quartet. Spoiler alert: every single book has a wedding that goes off the rails for one reason or another.


Quinn is the Maid of Honor from Book One and Micah is the brother of the bride (standing in as Father of the Bride.) They have a long history since Quinn’s best friend is Micah’s sister, but the one thing she never told her friend is that she’s having an affair with Micah. Every time they get together, they swear it’s the last, but they can’t keep their hands off each other. Then their affair is discovered and everything goes to heck!


I love this pair! Quinn is ferociously independent and Micah is closed off and troubled and they are absolutely in love with each other and absolutely committed to not acknowledging it. I hope you adore them as much as I do!
