About the Book:
Give me the blurb for the book in 140 characters or less:
Danger and desire brew a volatile mix as two wounded souls fight to stay alive and find love.
Do you have a favorite character? Why is he/she/it your favorite?
I love both Anita Santisi and Luke Corrado. Anita was in the first two books in the Redemption series and I’m glad to finally write her story. She’s been hurt badly but she’s strong and independent and built a successful business. However, I’m totally in love with Luke, as I fall in love with all my heroes. Not only is Luke smoking hot, but he’s strong and confident with underlying vulnerability. He carries some heavy guilt. He joined the FBI to do good, and he’s done that, but he’s seen so much of the bad in the world that he’s begun to lose faith in what he’s doing.
What do you hope readers will get from your book?
That life is full of second chances, and no matter what hurts you’ve suffered, the human soul is resilient and hopeful.
About the Author:
What/Who inspires you?
I’m inspired by other writers I know who work hard and are dedicated to their craft. I love to study people, and am particularly interested in those people who fought back from terrible circumstances.
Hardest aspect of writing? Best/Easiest?
Writing is hard work. An idea that sounds good in my head doesn’t always translate easily when I try to write it. Some days the words don’t flow and it’s frustrating. The best and easiest is that I give life to characters I love. And I’ve met so many wonderful writers and readers. The readers especially make it all worth it.
Who is your writing hero?
Several come to mind--those writers who faced rejection after rejection. Maybe their publisher dropped them, yet they kept writing. Despite their insecurities and setbacks, they had faith in themselves and are now great successes.
About the Future:
What’s next for you?
I’m getting ready to publish a new Christmas short story, Snow Globe Tales-Avery, the first in a series of three. Next year I hope to publish a novella set on the Isle of Capri in Italy. Then I’ll write a sequel to my award-winning book, A Groom for Christmas.
One outrageous goal for the future?
To spend a month in Australia. I’ve visited there but only for 10 days. I have relatives in that wonderful country.
Do you have any advice you'd like to share with other aspiring writers?
Read the type books you want to write; join writers’ groups, like Romance Writers of America; attend conferences and workshops and learn all you can about the creative and business sides of writing. And write, write, write.
Sweet or salty?
Beach, plains or mountains?
Online, letters or in person?
Ebook or print?
Thank you for having me.
More about The Redemption Series
"When a female bodyguard is hired to protect a rich playboy, she finds saving his life is easier than protecting her heart." When the past and present collide... Somebody wants rich playboy Franco Callahan dead. When security expert Josephine Fortune arrives on his doorstep thanks to his sister Doriana, Franco finds it hard to refuse. He's had a secret attraction for the diminutive bodyguard since they met at Doriana's wedding five years before. But attraction is all it is. Combat boot-clad Jo is not the kind of woman Franco usually loves and leaves. Which makes the ruse that Jo is his new live-in girlfriend just that until Jo gets a makeover. Suddenly seduction is on his mind and Franco has all the time in the world to pursue it—and Jo. Martial artist Jo can take down men twice her size without blinking, but Franco's appeal outmaneuvers her emotional defenses. Jo's tough exterior hides a dark past, and Franco seems determined to learn her every secret. But he has secrets of his own. The more Franco gets to know Jo, the more he realizes he needs her in his life, and not as his bodyguard. But as the threats to Franco escalate, Jo must use every one of her combat skills to protect him. Can Jo keep both Franco and her heart safe, or will they pay the ultimate price for love?
Doriana Callahan's life is unraveling. Someone is stalking her and sabotaging her father's company; her teenage son is rebelling; and Logan Tanner is back in town. For sixteen years she's kept an explosive secret from Logan, a secret he soon discovers. Logan never belonged in Doriana's world, but a long time ago he allowed himself to dream of a future with her, until the awful night he was forced to run. Now he's back and he needs her forgiveness, but first he must forgive himself. Despite the fact that Doriana kept the existence of his son from him, Logan vows to protect her. He races against time to stop the culprit threatening Doriana and works to forge a bond with his son. Can the love and passion that still burn between Doriana and Logan overcome old lies and new dangers? The clock is ticking on a second chance at love.
