I’m very happy to be a part of Annie Seaton’s blog tour for her Entangled Indulgence romance, Holiday Affair–especially as I happen to have one Ms Seaton on the blog today answering some Q’s. But before we get to those, let’s take a quick gander at the title in question.
Staid professor Lissy McIntyre believes that choosing a mate should be based on common sense, not runaway passion. And she would certainly never pick a rolling stone like Nick Richards for long-term love. But a red-hot, tropical romance? Oh, yeah. He’s got a body just made for sinning and his sizzling kisses leave her senseless.
When Nick blows into town, he’s stunned to discover that his no-nonsense new neighbor and co-worker is the same sultry creature he seduced for one night of forbidden island pleasure. He’s unaccustomed to staying in one place for long, but he just can’t seem to keep his hands off the multi-faceted woman. Will Nick break loyal Lissy’s heart or will she be the one woman he simply can’t walk away from?
Can’t deny it sounds romantic, right? So let’s meet the lady herself:
Annie, if you were to write yourself into this book, what kind of role would you play in it?
I would love to be Lissy’s friend and go out with them on the girls’ night out when she has a little too much champagne. I think it would be fun to see her loosen up as she is usually so reserved.
Yeah, a little champagne works wonders for loosening up.
Which character from your story would you most like to meet?
Nick would be my choice. I imagined Nick being a cross between Johnny Depp when he was on the yacht with his pirate swagger, and Colin Firth when he was suited up as a university professor. A perfect combination to my mind!
I’m squinting here trying to merge Jack Sparrow with Colin Firth … so attitude, sexiness & arrogance in a suit, eh?
Are you working on another title at the moment? Can you tell us about it?
I am currently working on the other two books in the Affair series. These books follow the search for happily-ever-after by Nick’s brothers—Tom who buys a marina and finds love on an Italian island— and Alex who is in the outback of Northern Australia and owns an exclusive resort. Both of them meet two very different women. You will have to read the stories to experience the highs and lows of their paths to love in two exotic locations.
Love when a series carries on with linked characters.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would love to visit the Bahamas. I have a love affair with the sea and the white sands and sapphire blue waters of the Caribbean have beckoned me for many years. I am currently writing a romantic suspense set in a marina on one of the islands. One day I will visit!
Being in England, the Bahamas is preeeeeeetty far away, but it certainly looks and sounds idyllic.
Have you ever read a book more than once? If so, what was it?
Katherine was written by Anya Seton in 1954. It is a fictional account of the true story of Katherine de Roet who became the mistress and then wife of John of Gaunt and the ancestress of the Tudor kings of England. I absolutely love it –it really brings the period alive for me and I reread it every couple of years.
A historical fan?
And onto a bit of randomness:
Favourite spot to write?
I sit in my writing chair overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I am very lucky, when the muse deserts me; I go for a walk on the beach.
Wow! Sounds like an amazing view.
What book(s) are you reading now?
Crazy Love by Nicola Marsh. I love Nicola’s books.
Haven’t heard of Nicola Marsh, but I’ll be sure to check her out.
Paranormal or dystopia—which do you prefer?
Paranormal. My novella Blind Lust about a witch, a warlock and a country and western singer is one of my favourites
Pizza toppings: the entire works … or the plainer the better?
The absolute works with double anchovies!
Cats or dogs?
Both… but cats have the edge. Boy cat and Girl Cat and Bob the Dog are an important part of our household!
Yeah, mine tend to play a big part, too.
And finally … in no more than three sentences, tell us why we should read your story? What about it will grip us by the shirt scruffs and drag us along for the ride?
The chemistry between Nick and Lissy is electric. They have a love/hate relationship where they each fight the sizzling attraction to the other but it is one of those ‘can’t take my eyes, hands or any other body part off you’ type attraction! The battle is on between intellect and hot sexual attraction and the battle that plays out between them is a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
So, are you sold yet? Who can say no to sizzling chemistry and emotional rollercoasters? If it sounds like your cup of tea, you can add it to your Goodreads list by clicking on the cover image.
