A Love and War stand Alone. These DO NOT NEED to be read in any order.
I crashed and opened my eyes . . . there you were, fierce and protective, and I knew . . . I just knew it was you all along.
Ex-Marine Trent Reed has been shot at, in a coma, and placed in war zones, but when his best friend calls in a favor, he is faced with the most dangerous situation yet—to be the best man. Trent’s turbulent past with races other than his own taints his view on the interracial marriage, and he’s none too happy to deal with the ill-tempered maid of honor. To accept the position means understanding that his friend is soon to be out of his life—for good.
Tough-girl Teal Lofton has struggled all of her adult life, from her weight to the color of her skin holding her back in work and love. When she agrees to be the maid of honor in her friend’s wedding, a hormonal bride and a jerk of a best man who she is strangely, yet wildly, attracted to, amplify those struggles.
As tensions and tempers rise, Trent disappears with the wedding rings and Teal braves a snowstorm to bring them back, determined to fix yet another problem. But a tragic accident brings together the unlikely pair, forcing them to face the prejudices of their pasts. In doing so, Trent and Teal embark on an inevitable course of self-discovery and passion like they’ve never experienced before—until a secret from Trent’s past threatens to destroy it all.
Inger Iversen was born in 1982 to Anne and Kaii Iversen. She lives in Virginia Beach with her overweight lap cat, Max and her tree hugging boyfriend Joshua. She spends 90 percent of her time in Barnes and Noble and the other ten pretending not to want to be in Barnes and Noble.

Welcome, tell us a little more about yourself?
My name is Kristen Anne Inger Iversen and I’m from Virginia Beach. My day job is at a chainsaw factory! It’s sounds like hard work, but it’s actually rather easy and fun.
Did you always wanted to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?
I’ve always enjoyed writing, but when I was younger I wanted to be a veterinarian!
When did you first consider yourself a “writer”?
It took FOREVER for me to actually change my job to Author.
Who is your publisher? Or do you self-publish?
My publisher is CHBB, Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly. I LOVE this company! I also self-publish.
How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?
I’ve been writing for a couple years now, so I’ve gotten faster. It takes about four to five months for me to finish the novel. Then you add a month of editing and proofreading and I can finish a book in five to six months.
What can we expect from you in the future? ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?
YES! I have a new Adult Contemporary Romance I am working on soon! I can’t wait to release it.
Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?
Normally when I write, I get my laptop and go outside with my headphones. The most comfy place is in my bed, but when I’m there, my cat always jumps on my laptop for nap.
What genre of books do you enjoy reading?
I love paranormal romance, but lately, I’ve been reading a bunch of contemporary romances.
Next one my TBR list is The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 6
If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?
I wouldn’t travel to the past. The past is where it belongs in the past, but I would LOVE to visit the future!
Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?
Very simple: Never give up. Don’t listen to the haters. Keep writing.
Which format of book do you prefer, eBook, hardback, or paperback?
Of course paperback, but e-books are more affordable these days.
What is your favorite book and Why? Have you read it more than once?
I have a few, but I choose Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler.
Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favorite/worst book to movie transfer?
Sure they do, but I am more of a Marvel fan than a books to movie girl. I have to admit I loved Mocking Jay the movie!
