The King of Infierno for the Totally 5 Star imprint has been my favourite novel to write. Of course, first, I had to look at the imprint composition and the storyline and assess whether it was going to work for me. I read the Totally 5 Star requirements and thought — this is me — I want to write a novel for this imprint!
Jen: Please tell us about your newest release and where the idea came from.
Jasmine: My newest release is called The King of Infierno. I wrote it for Totally Bound’s new Totally 5 Star imprint. I love the idea around this imprint —a luxury hotel chain with hotels in fabulous locations around the world. I’m Australian but I currently live in Madrid and it’s such a beautiful city that it seemed a perfect setting for my hotel and novel.
To be swept away by the romance and of course the eroticism! You’ll feel anxious, excited and dying to turn that next page. I want you to lose yourself in the story and imagine that you are the one staying in a luxury hotel with a very hot and dominant alpha male — where you can also almost feel the bite of a large palm on your backside as he introduces you to the erotic pleasure/pain of a spanking…
Just as your books inspire authors, what authors have inspired you to write?
I recall at fourteen, reading Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights and falling in love with the story of Catherine and Heathcliff. Soon after, I read Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and I was smitten, staying up until the early hours of the morning to devour the entire book!
I’d have to say that both authors inspired in me a love of the classics and of romance and definitely inspired me to write.
