Wendy Higgins – 3 Questions
Wendy Higgins is stuck between a rock and a hard place, because she has two book crushes! She can’t chose between them, she loves them both! Those boys are Roth & Zayne; who are two very different boys and mortal enemies, but one girl can’t chose between them (so it’s not just Wendy!) in the new paranormal romance series, The Dark Elements by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Choosing won’t get any easier in book two either, trust Wendy as she has already read it!
When I asked Wendy which book or series she wished she written she was quick to answer with Kresley Cole’s Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles #1). She is a big fan of the series, loves the unique storyline and the fact that it has such great sexual tension and is still super sexy for being YA.
Only a little bit of real life has made it into Wendy’s fantasy novels. She told me if anything it would be her main character, Anna’s naivete´ and sweet, especially when she was 16. But Wendy was quick to admit she had no where near Anna’s strength & will. I think Wendy still has a lot of that same sweetness now-a-days! She has been on my author bucket list as I adore The Sweet Trilogy and I was smiling like a 35 yo fangirl that I am! Such a nerd, i know, but she was so nice to me & I am sure to every single one of her fans new or seasoned!
Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Trilogy #3)
Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.
The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.
In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.

Publication: March 17th, 2014
While most seventeen-year-old American girls would refuse to let their parents marry them off to a stranger, Robyn Mason dreams of the mysterious McKale in Ireland, wondering how he’ll look and imagining his cute Irish accent. Prearranged bindings are common for magical families like her own, however when she travels to the whimsical Emerald Isle she discovers there’s more to her betrothal and McKale’s clan than she was led to believe.
What starts as an obligatory pairing between Robyn and McKale morphs over time into something they both need. But one giant obstacle stands in the way of their budding romance: a seductive and deadly Fae princess accustomed to getting what she wants—and what she wants is McKale as her plaything. Love, desire, and jealousies collide as Robyn’s family and McKale’s clan must work together to outsmart the powerful Faeries and preserve the only hope left for their people.
