Midnight Thunder & Q&A with author Vicki Lewis Thompson

Q&A with Vicki Lewis Thompson
author of 

1. What inspired you to start writing romance?
Men. Dashing heroes who save the day are more fun to write about than any other subject I can imagine.

2. With more than 100 books to your name how do you create original characters and plotlines?
I keep my eyes and ears open ALL the time. If I wrote the same story over and over, I’d go crazy, so shaking things up is a matter of self-preservation.

3. What’s better – the excitement of a new love or a rekindled romance from long ago?
The rekindled romance is much easier to write but discovering a new love is a challenge I like giving myself, so they’re both wonderful in different ways.

4. What can you tell us about the Thunder Mountain Brotherhood Series?

The heroes all share a similar past – being foster kids at Thunder Mountain Ranch. That single fact binds them together more surely than blood. They have different issues, but each one needs to heal. With insight and the right woman, they can.

5. What are you working on next?
The heroes of summer, 2016! The heroes of 2015 and my Christmas book for the series are written, so I’m on to the next batch of foster brothers and I love them already.

Back Cover Blurb:

The lost cowboy…

Thunder Mountain Ranch was the only place cowboy Cade Gallagher had ever called home. But after he and Lexi Simmons broke each other's hearts, he left it behind, along with his foster family. Since then, Cade has drifted, looking for something—anything—to call home. Until a call from Lexi changes everything…

Cade has been gone too long. His foster mother is hospitalized, and the ranch is in deep financial trouble. Yet even as his world crumbles, Cade's hunger for Lexi is almost as tangible as the taste of her lips and the way her body fits deliciously against his. It's bittersweet surrender. But Lexi isn't the girl she used to be, and she's determined to have the hot cowboy in her bed only if she keeps him out of her heart.

My Review:

Oh yes, this is one number that I would buy just based on the cover, but it’s what comes between the cover that kept my attention throughout. This really is a second chance romance that has it all. Thompson developed Thunder Mountain Ranch in such a manner that I could easily picture myself that. The tie in with the Sons of Chance was fantastic. I loved those men and women, and their ties to Thunder Mountain Ranch gave context to this new world that we’re getting to know.

Lexi & Cade’s story held me captive. The chemistry between them was off the charts. Cade’s story was so intimately crafted & well presented that I couldn’t help falling in love with him. His desire to battle his instincts to fit with the life he wants was heartening, yet at the same time he never gave up on who he really was on the inside. Ringo was a priceless addition to the story. He revealed so much about so many of major players in the story.

My final thoughts? Thompson is holding me captive with her latest series. I can’t wait to get back with this series. Finn & Chelsea have to have a story of their own. The lead in to Damon’s story is priceless beyond words.
