In a world where everyone is assigned a lifemate at birth by the Gods, thirty year-old Honor is still looking for hers. When her new boss, Sedric, points out that her mate probably died before they met, Honor embarks on a quest for closure. She needs to know who her mate was and what he was like so she can move on with her life.
Sedric is determined to help Honor, because he understands the emptiness she’s feeling. As they search for Honor’s lifemate and get to know each other, they start to wonder if the only kind of love is that which is fated and if there really is only one person for everyone.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was actually inspired by a pin on Pinterest! I know it sounds silly, but hey, writers take inspiration wherever they can get it. The pin was a screenshot of someone saying it would be awesome if everyone was given a bracelet and charm and their soulmate had an identical one. The charm would heat up the closer you got to your soulmate so you would know when you found them. I started thinking about the ramifications of soul mates being “assigned” in this way and what would happen if for some reason a person never found theirs. Honor’s Lark was born.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I knew Honor’s situation had to be a little crappy for the plot I had in mind to work. This led her to be sorta bitter and jealous at the beginning of the book, but gave her a lot of room for growth. I wanted her to be complicated and unexpected, so everything about her seems to be contradictory. When I started thinking about who her love interest would be, I knew he was going to have to be able to not only put up with her confusing nature, but love her because of it. Thus, Sedric became the man who loves puzzles, challenges, and contradictions.
