Would you risk everything for love?
Life has held nothing but hardships for Hunter Bane. Growing up with a learning disability wasn’t easy, especially when you’re poor. With only his brother to support him, Hunter clings to the short moments of happiness in life. Like when he meets Autumn Blakewood.
Autumn Blakewood is a geek at heart. Reading is her passion, and she can’t spend one day without her books. She’s always locked up in her room studying, trying to avoid trouble. Until Hunter comes into her life.
Hunter can’t resist the temptation to get closer to Autumn. She is his complete opposite, and yet he’s drawn to her in ways he can’t explain. But when his brother is caught dealing drugs and sent to prison, Hunter’s world shatters.
To save his brother, Hunter has to join the gang he’s feared his entire life. Now he’s forced to choose between his family and the one girl he loves. Fighting for both, his fury is all he needs…

- So tell us a bit about yourself. What’s your background?
I’m Clarissa Wild, and I’m a 23 year old writer of New Adult Romance and Erotic Romance. My latest book FIERCE, which is a college romance, became a top 200 bestselling Romance book on Amazon. My new book FURY is number 1.5 in the series, and it’s a retelling of FIERCE from the guy’s POV.
- What’s the story behind your book? Where did you get the idea?
FIERCE was created when I listened to a song from the Goo Goo Dolls called Iris. It told a story of a guy who was misunderstood and the only one who could understand him was a girl. I knew I had to do something with it. Somehow the idea of drugs and college popped into my head, and from there on out I created a story. Sometimes ideas just pop into my head!
- What is it that you like most about writing?
I love creating new worlds and stories and coming up with plots and secrets that will amaze readers. I love writing about things that are shocking, on the line of what’s right and wrong. I like seeing what my work does to readers. Their reactions keep me going.
- When you write a book, how do you start? Do you plan ahead or do you do something else?
Before I start, I must have a few songs available to listen to while figuring out the plot, so I always search for music that fits the storyline. I create all the characters and their backgrounds first in a spreadsheet. That way I know if it’s too much to put into one book or not. I almost always know how many books I’m going to write before I start writing. Then I start crafting all the scenes, chapter by chapter. Once I have that done, I start writing. 🙂
- Do you have any tips for other writers out there?
Yes, always keep writing, and never give up! I can’t stress this enough. No matter how many times you fail or something doesn’t go your way, you have to keep going. It’s the only way to succeed. That, and drink plenty of tea or coffee 😉
- Are you planning on writing more? If so, what types of other books can we expect?
Yes, of course! First, I have a sequel to FURY in the pipelines, which will be book 2 in the series. It’s called FLAME and will continue Autumn’s and Hunter’s love story. Then I would also like to write another book in this series, number 3, which will focus more on his brother, although this idea is not set in stone yet. It all depends whether I’ve got enough material, so it might happen or might not happen 😉 If you get my drift.
I have plenty more other novels coming up that I am still brainstorming about, but you’ll definitely hear more from me in 2014 and onwards! Can’t wait to bring you all some more amazing books!
