Crystal: Today I'm thrilled to host Clare James. Welcome Clare! I'm so excited to have you here today. Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today?
Clare: Hi Crystal! So nice to be here today. Thanks for having me!! Well, I’m not all that interesting, but here goes. I’m the mom of a 10-year-old boy and my husband and I basically revolve our life around that little guy :)
We live in Minneapolis, but really aren’t all that fond of the cold! Still, the city is awesome and all of our friends and family are here, so we’re stuck.
I started my career in journalism and then moved into marketing, but I’ve always wanted to write. I fell in love with romance novels in a big way about seven or eight years ago and I’ve been writing full time for the past two years and loving every minute of it.
When I’m not writing, I’m hanging with the family, traveling with my husband and son, and working out whenever I find the time. Oh, and reading! We’re always reading.
Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us?
Clare: Well, my favorite scene is a spoiler, but I’ll just tell you that there is so much emotion in Before You Go (the first book in the series). It’s not just between the hero and heroine, it’s the friends and family. Some of my favorite scenes are with Tabby and her father. I think these strong secondary characters, and the roles they play, make for a rich story. You have major highs and lows with this one.
Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for your latest release?
Clare: So my latest release is the conclusion of the series—Not Without You. This story finds Noah and Tabby two years later, when they’re finding out that falling in love was the easy party. Staying in love is the hard part. I came up with the idea because readers were asking for it and I knew I had to make it as emotional as the first story. I’ve recently added several more scenes to it, and I’m so excited to hear what readers think!
Crystal: What are you currently working on?
Clare: I have so much going on for 2016: I’m adding some new stories to my Quick and Dirty Series, finishing up my Elite Series with Entangled’s Brazen line, and I’ve just signed a new contract with a publisher for a brand new series and will be sharing that news very soon!
Crystal: Do you have any special routine that you follow when you are writing?
Clare: I would love to have a special routine, but my days are too unpredictable right now, so I just fit it in whenever I can. Lately, that means writing at night when everyone is sleeping.
Crystal: Did you have to do a lot of research for this book or any other? If so do you have a fascinating fact that you have learned you would like to share with us?
Clare: I did a lot of research about sexual assault on college campuses/high schools and the effects of PTSD. I was devastated to learn how many women are assaulted every year. Actually, it was the Steubenville rape case that influenced my first story.
Crystal: Who are some of your favorite authors that you like to read?
Clare: I’ll narrow this down to the romance genre. Otherwise, we’d be stuck here all day! I really love Christina Lauren, Emma Chase, Colleen Hoover, Tiffany Reisz, Samanthe Beck. Gosh, I could go on forever in romance, too :)
Crystal: Is there a genre you haven't written that you would like to try?
Clare: Yes! I’d love to write a middle grade, and my son is dying for me to write some sort of adventure book. It’s definitely on the list!!
About Before You Go, Impossible Love #1:
*"A touching tale of love and human redemption. Readers of Tammara Webber and Colleen Hoover will enjoy this book." - A Love Affair with Books*
**More than 100,000 downloads to date!**
What begins as an experiment turns into more than she ever expected …
Twenty-one-year-old Tabitha Kelly is on a mission as she takes a seat inside the neighborhood pub. Off the beaten path, and far from campus, it’s the perfect place. And when she spots the gorgeous Noah Adler at the end of the bar, she silently says, *jackpot.*
One year ago, Tabby had no need to take such extremes. But after being lured to a party that became the site of the biggest sex scandal to hit her Illinois campus, her perfect life fell apart.
Now, in a new city, Tabby’s convinced she can start over. And though it sounds crazy, she believes a one-night stand is the best way to take control and move on from her past. What she doesn’t expect is the immediate connection she feels to this stranger, or that *he *has a plan of his own.
BEFORE YOU GO is about a chance meeting, an unexpected connection, and a unique romance that survives the worst of situations.
MORE, book 2 in the Impossible Love Series, is a companion friends-to-lovers story featuring the steamy romance between the eccentric spitfire, Jules, and the resident party guy, Foster. Available Now!
NOT WITHOUT YOU, book 3 in the series, revisits Noah and Tabby two years later when they discover that falling in love was the easy part. Available now with new bonus content!

About More, Impossible Love #2:
From Clare James’ best-selling Impossible Love Series, comes a steamy friends-to-lovers companion story about Jules Taylor and Foster Sutton.
Two wild souls with a fire burning inside, Foster and Jules are a hot and dangerous mix of emotion and lust. But after a terrible accident leaves one friend dead, Foster is bound by a secret that keeps him from getting closer to Jules. And he’s left with only one thing to offer her – friendship.
For Jules, her relationship with Foster is getting old. He falls down and she picks him up, but they never move forward. Their occasional hook-ups are no longer enough, and Jules vows that this is her summer to forget Foster and find love. If it were only that easy.
It seems fate is pushing Jules and Foster together at every turn. And it’s only a matter of time before they give up and give in.
MORE is a stand-alone companion story in the Impossible Love Series. It can be read on its own, though you may also enjoy BEFORE YOU GO and NOT WITHOUT YOU, book 3 in the series, available now!

About Not Without You, Impossible Love #3:
Falling in love was the easy part …
Noah and Tabby’s love story wasn’t typical … or particularly romantic. After all, he picked her up at a bar – or maybe she picked him up. Either way, he saw her naked before he even knew her name.
Tabby came to him broken, but determined. And Noah knew how to fix her. It was a meeting of the bodies. A retraining of the mind. A connection that soon infected the heart.
But after two years, Noah’s old tricks aren’t working, and Tabby is shutting down again. This time, he refuses to play games. He wants all of her, or nothing at all.
Not Without You returns to the eclectic neighborhood where Noah and Tabby met, and where they are now discovering that life doesn’t get easier after you leave campus. What began as a sweet story of love and redemption, turns into something dark, intense … and, at times, disturbing. And if they’re not careful, it will destroy them both.
*Not recommended for readers under 18
Book #3 is available for $0.99 until December 13, 2015 at Amazon
