The hardest part of being an author is finding the time to do everything that I want. I'm a single mom and I work a day job. So making time to write, edit, and market my books can be a challenge, but I make it work.
Can you give us a short synopsis of Passion of a Witch?
Sure, here's a short synopsis. Summer Leery is a witch sworn to marry another. With her wedding only weeks away, she has no time to play host to a foolish human. No matter how handsome. But when the Goddess to all witches makes a decree that she welcome him into their secret world, what's a witch to do? Kian Lancaster is about to find out. Faced with a bleak future slaving for his father's ruthless company, Kian has his own reasons to stay away from the willful Summer, mainly, keeping her safe. However, when it comes to this mysterious female, he can't keep his hands to himself. For the first time in his life, a woman didn't fall to her knees to please him. Summer's indifference shackled his lust and refused to let go. Determined to resist the male at all costs, Summer ignores her growing desire. A feat easier said than done. Summer's magic may be strong, but soon she'll discover that when faced with the laws of attraction, there's no greater power than love.
What inspired you to write this book?
I've always wanted to write a series with supernatural beings, since my addiction for paranormal romance began years ago. I have another series with demons called the Jettison Brotherhood. That first book started my obsession writing the dominant alpha males.
How many hours per day do you spend writing?
I write everyday during my lunch hour. At night, I try to get in another hour or so. On the weekends, I can get in 7-8 hours a day if I'm lucky. Those are the good days!
Name your top five favorite books.
It's impossible to name just five. I have read well over a thousand books. There are at least a thousand on my Kindle alone and I read each one of them, sometimes more than once. My bookcase has books on top of books piled in it. I've donated some to the local library when I run out of room. It would definitely be easier to name some of my favorite authors. Christine Feehan, JR Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jennifer Ashley, J.K. Rowling, and Jacquelyn Frank to name a few.
What are you working on now?
Right now, I'm working on Heart of a Wolf Book 2 in A Wicked series. If all goes well, I'm hoping for a late spring/ early summer release.
Title: Passion of a Witch
Author: K.D. Friedrich
Genre: Paranormal Romance
In a few weeks, Summer Leery will be mated. For most witches, it’s a time to celebrate, but Summer isn’t smiling. Her upcoming union is one of convenience, not love, contracted between her family and one of the most powerful families in the coven. As always, Summer’s loyalty remains with her kin and the traditions she’s expected to follow. No matter how much she detests her future husband. With her parents off to secure her nuptials, Summer is eager to enjoy her last moments of freedom.
Kian Lancaster’s relationship with his father is volatile. So finding himself at the bastard’s mercy is the last place Kian wants to be. Unfortunately, he has no choice. His mother is suffering from an unknown illness and needs constant care. Care that costs money. Money Kian doesn’t have. With little options, he lets his father pay his mother’s mounting medical bills, knowing the offer comes with a heavy price. Kian must work for his father’s ruthless company. Looking to forget his bleak future, he plans a nostalgic night of liquor and fun in the local woods. Unaware his destiny lurks in the shadows of towering pine.
Summer is shocked to find a human trespassing on her family’s land. More surprising is that the Goddess to all witches demands Summer welcome the cursed intruder. Summer has no time to waste playing host to a foolish human. No matter how handsome. With her wedding weeks away, Kian’s a temptation she can’t afford to entertain. But when her deity makes a decree to bring the male into the supernatural world… what’s a witch to do?
Kian’s about to find out. For the first time in his life, a woman didn’t fall to her knees to please him. Summer’s apathy shackled his lust and refused to let go. Kian knows he should stay away from Summer, but when it comes to this woman, he can’t get enough.
Their attraction is instant, their desire intense. Two hearts forced together by the will of a Goddess. Is Summer strong enough to resist Kian’s charm? Or will she risk it all to taste the power of love?
