Lisa Caldwell is a secondary character from J.M. Stewart's Her Knight in Black Leather available now at AMAZON.


Cat Edwards has spent her life playing the wallflower in an effort to escape the repressive weight of her mother’s tarnished name. Dragged to a bar by her best friend in an effort to forget a broken heart, the shy bookworm is determined to be someone else for the night, but quickly gets in over her head. She discovers chivalry isn’t dead after all when a mysterious stranger comes to her rescue. He’s wearing black leather and a mischievous smile that promises to be exactly what she needs. 

When his terminally ill father suffers a setback, Michael Brant returns to the town he swore ten years ago he’d never return to. He’s come back this time determined to make peace with the past, but being home brings up memories he doesn’t want to remember anymore. His first night in town, he’s captured by a damsel in distress. Cat’s beauty is made all the more alluring when he realizes she has no idea who he is. He can’t resist spending a single night in her arms. With her, he’s only a man, disconnected from his family’s name and the past that haunts him here. 

As the town erupts with the news of his return, Michael’s dark past comes back to haunt him, putting Cat in danger. Someone is threatening her life and the life of her family. Desperate to keep history from repeating itself, Michael offers her his family’s name in order to keep her safe. When the lie spirals beyond their control, can they stop their hearts from becoming entangled as well?

I had so much fun with this interview! I hadn't intended to do Lisa. She just took over and her answers were so much fun I let her! Thanks for having me/us, Sarah!

Lisa is working on you, isn't she? How soon will you start her story? Don't you love how our characters jerk us around and run our lives? Great quickie.

Joanne Stewart said...

Yup. Funny thing is, her story has just been a vague nag at the back of my mind until this interview. Suddenly Lisa's tapping her toe. Apparently, she's done being patient. ;)

How soon? Well, I'm currently working on a book. and I tend to work very linearly. I get so into character that it's hard for me to switch between books. So, as soon as I finish my current WIP and get it squared away, I'm thinking about doing hers next. I'll have to start thinking about what kind of hero would suit her. ;)

thanks for stopping by, V!

You're THINKING of writing her story next?! It doesn't sound like she's giving you any choice in the matter! LOL
Great quickie, ladies!

Joanne Stewart said...

AJ--ha! Amen to that! Lol

LaVerne--I think you're right.

Thanks for visiting with me, ladies!
