Can she overcome her fear of losing Aidan to the one guarantee in life?Millionaire consultant, Aidan O’Connell knows he’ll one day meet a woman who’ll awaken an unrelenting mating instinct.

Interview

Share 4 fun facts about yourself!
1) I have three tats. One on my chest, one one my shoulder and one on the inside of my lower leg.
2) I'm mom to nine-year-old boy/girl twins, and they keep me on my toes.
3) I'm obsessed with Norman Reedus right now.
4) When I get excited over something, I have a little victory dance I do that cracks other people up.

Could you tell us a little bit about The Awakening: Aidan?
The Awakening: Adain is the first book a planned three book series and is an introduction to my mating instinct.

Aidan O'Connell knows he’ll one day meet a woman who’ll awaken an unrelenting mating instinct. Unfortunately, that woman is Jaylin, who has no qualms about telling him that he and his so-called eternity can shove it. When she pushes him away, he takes a drastic step so she can no longer escape. The close proximity throws the instinct into overdrive. Can he control the need engrained in him until he’s certain she will reciprocate the bond, or will a moment of weakness doom him to hell on earth?
Dr. Jaylin Avgar has spent the last eight year counseling grieving shifters after the bond has been traumatized by death. Dealing with only the negative side of mating has made her see the eternal bond as a curse that ruins lives and has vowed never to bond. She refuses to sentence another shifter to the desolate life they would live after her death. Then she meets Aidan, a shifter who represents everything she doesn't want, but he still gets under her skin and makes her crave a future with him. Can she overcome the years of sorrow she’s witnessed to accept her own eternity?

Do you have any rituals for when youre writing?
Not unless you consider having a cup of coffee within arms reach at all times a ritual. :) I can't write without coffee.

Who would you cast as Jaylin and Aidan, if your book was made into a movie?
Aidan would be Kevin McKidd. I love the ginger-haired doctor from Grey's Anatomy. He graced the background on my laptop the entire time I wrote Aidan's story.
Jaylin would be someone like Kate Beckinsale.

Whats your favourite way to just relax and unwind, any hobbies?
Honestly, I just like to catch up on my TV shows. Between writing, working the other job and being a single mom, I look forward to a little time where I'm not in front of a computer and I'm just laying out on the couch, doing nothing.

Can you share a little bit about what youre working on at the moment?
I've just finished the last book of The Awakening series, which is Britton's story. Now I'm onto the third book of my Love to the Extreme novel, which is Mac's story. Trying to get as much done before school lets out for the summer. Once my kids are home all day, my writing time is limited.

Thanks so much for having me!!!

About the Author

Abby Niles has always loved to read. After having twins and becoming a stay-at-home mom, she started doodling stories to keep her sanity. She didn't plan for writing to become an obsession, but it did. Today, she juggles work, home life, and writing. Its not always easy, but hey, who said life was easy?

When Abbys not writing, you can find her playing Just Dance with her kids or trying to catch up on her never-ending to-be-read list. She also loves Zumba, and refuses to admit she looks more like Animal doing his Muppet flail than a sensual Latin dancer.
