He’s no pushover. And she ain’t no fairy princess.
No one would guess that Sapphy, awesome whirlwind of Maze badassness, grew up sheltered in the Fae realm. Witnessing a murder drove her into the humans’ broken cities to hide, but now she’s back, going undercover to keep history from repeating as the tournament to choose a new Fae queen dawns.
The only pebble in her shit-kicking boot is the jaw-gritting interference of Nathe Amergin, a Fae Enforcer whose solemn violet eyes set her skin to sizzle.
After the loss of his beloved sister, Nathe saved his last shred of sanity by clamping a lid on his emotions and forging a path to justice. When this frustrating, blue-eyed, my-go-or-I’ll-blow female informs him of a possible threat to the realm, his offer of support is genuine, if reluctant.
While he’s willing to work with her to protect his people, this sinful smart-ass skates perilously close to unleashing an avalanche of passion that, as the final choosing looms and whispers turn to screams, could bury them both.
Contains ear-blushing sex between a flighty Fae with a mean air jab and a grounded Elemental who makes her earth move. Add a murderous queen clinging to power, and sabotage that strikes out of thin air. Anyone got ear plugs?

Sophie H. Morgan is a paranormal romance author with a love for hot guys, sassy heroines, and HEAs that seem impossible. When not at the keyboard working out ways to drive her characters into each other’s arms, you can find her rambling about the English countryside with her crazy spaniels, shopping for one more pair of shoes, or devouring yet ANOTHER romance novel with ANOTHER bag of raisin cookies.
Out of thin air. No, seriously. Most of the plot comes to me as I’m posing questions… What if this were to happen? What if a woman who was like this came in? What if the world was like this? In my notebooks, ‘maybe’ is used a LOT.
2.Do you have a dream cast for your book?
Sapphy, the heroine of Whispers, would be played by Kate Beckinsale or Julia Roberts. Someone who could give a lot of sass and kick a lot of ass.
When I was writing the hero, Nathe, I pictured Tom Mison for inspiration. Especially as his character, Ichabod Crane in the TV show Sleepy Hollow! Someone who could pull off sexy and serious, with that old-fashioned gentleman appeal. *shivers*
3. How do you handle writer’s block? .
I’m awful with this. I am a terrible procrastinator if the muse has decided to pull a duvet day. I find, though, that if I try and approach the scene in a different way, usually things unblock enough for me to immerse myself in the scene.
4.What inspired you to write this book?
When I sat down to write a second book in the Divided Kingdom series, I knew it would be about Sapphy, the other female member of the Hoods. The one who dyes her hair and can take out men with a spoon. I started to write a past for her and once I had the event that sent her running into the Hoods, I knew what path her future had to take.
5.What’s the hardest part of being an author?
The discipline of writing. On days when you’d rather sit down with a book or the TV, the days when you get home from a horrible day of work, you need to have the discipline to sit down and throw yourself into the book. When it’s flowing, it’s no trouble and you adore it, you crave the high. When it’s slogging-through-treacle hard, it’s the memory and the determination to see these characters fall in love even if they don’t feel like performing for you. In the end, you do it for the love of it, even when it’s hard.
