About Me

My photo
I love romance and writing it is one of my greatest pleasures. Along with writing romance, I love sitting back and talking with authors that love romance just as much as I do. Since I've been reading romance since I was sixteen years old I am a book lover that still reads lots of books in a month. So, weekly I will also post my book picks. They may be picks that are new releases or maybe a favorite book of mine. On this blog you will see books featured by ALL romance genres.

Step into the world of some of the freshest voices in romance; from spicy secrets to sweet second chances. Get enticed by your perfect shade of desire.
WENDY ELY BRINGS YOU...
DANGEROUS FLAMES
Sometimes good men are taught to do evil things and it takes the strength of a sheltered woman to make things right. When Gabi learns of her father, she is asked to leave for her own safety. Fine. She’ll go... but she is taking her secret love with her, even if it’s at gun-point.

SASSE: Tell the readers a little about yourself. Why did you decide to be a part of Shades of Desire with your fellow authors?

SoD Author Wendy:  After having success in other boxed sets, I decided to form this group. I asked the potential authors a lot of questions and picked those that I thought would be a good match. I really enjoy working with every single author in Shades of Desire.

SASSE: How did you come up with this story? What is your story about?

SoD Author Wendy: Gabrielle Medinis is the heroine in my story. I knew who she was before I even had the plot figured out. The hard part was that I didn’t know a single thing about the mafia but had to write a mafia story? Focusing on other projects didn’t work. Her story wouldn’t leave my head until I did the research and wrote Dangerous Flames.

SASSE:  Do you use celebrity inspiration for your characters? If so, who inspired your hero and heroine?  

SoD Author Wendy: I don’t usually. For me, I worry that the celebrity and my character would be too similar.

SASSE: Is your story in the boxset part of a series? If it is, where does it fall in the line up?

SoD Author Wendy: Yes! Dangerous Flames is the first book of my Mafia Hearts series.

SASSE: For fun, tell the readers and interesting factoid about you?

SoD Author Wendy: I think I’m part mermaid. I seriously love to swim and would swim every day of the year if I could. Our apartment complex’s pool hasn’t opened for the summer year (and it’s 105 outside!) which makes for a really unhappy author. I’ve been calling my friends and asking if I can swim at their houses.

SASSE: Thank you SoD Author Wendy, this has been just delightful to sit back with you and learn a little more about you and your story.

CINDY STARK BRINGS YOU...
WOUNDED
Battle-worn soldier, Jerry returns home intending to avoid his ex-fiancée. The shrapnel that wounded him pales in comparison to the gash she left in his heart. Kimber lost everything when she broke off her engagement, and she’ll fight to win him back.

SASSE: Tell the readers a little about yourself. Why did you decide to be a part of Shades of Desire with your fellow authors?

SoD Author Cindy:  I’d always wanted to participate in a boxset because I think it’s a fabulous way to introduce my readers to other great authors and also to give readers a chance to check out my writing without spending a ton of money upfront. It’s a win-win for everyone.
SASSE: How did you come up with this story? What is your story about?

SoD Author Cindy: My Aspen Series is centered around the sexy heroes in the fictional small town of Aspen, Utah. To me, there is nothing sexier than a man who’s willing to fight for his country. In Wounded, Jerry and Kimber were once engaged. But Kimber struggled with her fears while he was away fighting and broke off their engagement. She’s since realized her mistake, and though she fears she’s burned that bridge, she’s working to keep others from suffering the same fate.

Here’s the short blurb:
He’s fighting for peace…

Battle-bruised soldier, Jerry Tierno returns to his small hometown before heading back to war. Top on his list is avoiding his ex-fiancée at all costs. The shrapnel that sliced open his leg was nothing compared to the gash she left in his heart. Even if he has to cross the desert all over again, he’ll be damned if he’ll let her know how much she hurt him.

She’s fighting for love…

Kimber Reynolds made the worst mistake of her life when she broke off her engagement. It took her some time to conquer the fear and loneliness that made her question his love, but she’s strong now and determined to win back her sexy soldier. The only problem is his evasive manuevers outsmart her full-on attacks.

All is fair in love and war.

The town’s Fourth of July celebration is the perfect place to stage her battle for love. But before Kimber can win him over, she must prove she’s tough enough to be a soldier’s wife and convince Jerry she’ll be waiting the next time he returns home.

SASSE:  Do you use celebrity inspiration for your characters? If so, who inspired your hero and heroine?  

SoD Author Cindy: I do use celebrities for inspiration for characters. For this story, I used Joe Teti from Dual Survivor for Jerry because he’s such a hot military guy, and I used Lily Collins as Kimber. I love her expressive eyes.

SASSE: Is your story in the boxset part of a series? If it is, where does it fall in the line up?

SoD Author Cindy: Yes, this story is the first in the Aspen Series. There are nine books total in this series and one in a spin-off series.

SASSE: For fun, tell the readers an interesting factoid about you?

SoD Author Cindy: Hmm…I’m probably the most uninteresting person I know, which is why I love to study and write about others. I guess one thing that I like to laugh about is that I adore the ocean, hope to move to the Oregon Coast one day, but I hate seafood and I can’t swim. It’s crazy. I know. But walking the beaches of the Pacific Northwest calms and centers me like nothing else.

SASSE: Thank you SoD Author, this has been just delightful to sit back with you and learn a little more about you and your story.
