EXCLUSIVE AUTHOR INTERVIEW:
  1. Pen or typewriter or computer? I’m spoiled by my computer! I can’t imagine what it must have been like back in the day, when writers had to do everything with pen, let alone quill-and-ink.
  2. Do you write Alone or in public? I definitely prefer writing alone, but I’m a mom with three kids, so I can filter out a lot of chaos around me. If I have to write in public though, I usually wear headphones because I like to listen to other people’s conversations, which are a million times more interesting than what’s happening on my blank computer screen!
  3. Music or silence: It doesn’t necessarily have to be silent, but I find listening to music while I write distracting. If a song I like comes on, I start singing along…and, trust me, no one wants to hear that!
  4. Goals of certain # of words a week or when inspiration strikes: I would LOVE to be the kind of person who can stick to a certain word count per day (or week), but I’m a terrible procrastinator. I'm writing my best under a tight deadline, or when I’m away from home with absolutely no distractions and nothing else to do.
  5. What tactics do you have when writing? (For example: outline or just write): I’m what they call a “pantser,” which means I generally don’t outline my books before I start writing them. Instead, I know how I want it to begin and end, and some major plot points along the way. The rest of the story unfolds as I write.

Do opposites really attract?

Emerson Monroe McLean is a true Texan through and through. But she's never wanted to be like the other girls she grew up with, the ones who view debutante balls and sororities as stepping-stones to landing the perfect husband.

Yet everyone underestimates Em. When they look at the leggy blonde, all they see is a serial-dater who leaves a string of broken hearts in her wake. What people don’t realize is that keeping guys at arms length is more than just about having a good time; it’s a deep-rooted defense mechanism. 

Lucas Harper is California born and bred. The product of his wealthy upbringing and an overbearing mother, Lucas has always been told where to be and when to be there. But after his older brother’s death, Lucas is tired of being a puppet.

Taking a break to figure out what he wants out of life, he moves to West Beach to spend the summer surfing. It’s there that he meets Emerson McLean, the free-spirited beauty who lures him into her bed. Refusing to be tied down, she’s unlike any girl he’s every known.

Can they find common ground...or will their differences tear them apart?

Their chemistry is undeniable. There’s only one hitch: Lucas already has a fiancĂ©e. And when she lands on his doorstep, Emerson realizes that for the first time in her life, she has genuine feelings for a guy.

With her heart on the line, Emerson discovers that, win or lose, she isn’t the kind of girl to play by the rules.
