A. The heroine, Lucy Seton, was a secondary character in Let Sleeping Rogues Lie, and I felt she should have a book. As for the hero, while I was plotting the novella I wrote before I wrote this book, I stumbled across a website about magic and magicians (the non-paranormal kind), and since I've always found magicians sexy, I thought it might be fun to pair one with Lucy, since she likes "flashy" men. The rest came out of that.
