We all know Jasinda Wilder as a well-established super star in the world of romance and erotic romance, yet her latest book, DJINN AND TONIC, book two of The Houri Legends series, brings readers into the realm of the paranormal.

We sat down to talk with Laurelin about Hudson, Fixed, her new book and all the great things going on in her life.
