Oooh, goodness me, I love a sexy cowboy, don't you?! I have read Marie's work and it's great! She's a writer I admire and wish massive success in the future. I have a lot to learn! I'm so excited to be interviewing you today, Marie - let's get started!
1) What is your writing routine?
You have to be kidding J
Honestly, I really don't have one. I try to write on my lunch time at the day job, but that doesn't always work, so I write whenever I can.
2) Which author/s inspire you to write?
Series category authors, several of them from the old Loveswept line and Harlequin Presents
3) Which is your favorite romance subgenre to read? To write?
I read several subgenres: paranormal, contemporary, some historical from sweet to the really hot.
I like to write hot, I really enjoy exploring my characters sexual boundaries
4) How do you deal with criticism/rejection?
I allow myself one day to be sad or upset, but then it's back to work. Everything is subjective, especially when it comes to writing.
5) What do you expect from an editor?
To be honest with me and answer me in a timely manner
6) Tell me about your latest release
My latest release is Quick Silver Ranch: Saddle up
At loose ends after her best friend's wedding, Angie Davidson needs a vacation, so when the gorgeous yet aloof co-owner of the Quick Silver Ranch insists she stay to explore their sexual attraction, she agrees. Though she eagerly bows to his commanding touch in the bedroom, Jared's distant air after lovemaking sparks too many bad memories. Dare she yield to his sexy persuasion and prove he has nothing to fear or will he abandon her like everyone else in her life?
Eager to explore Angie’s vulnerable, submissive nature, Jared plans two weeks of toys and other naughty play. However, the last time he reached for a woman—mentally and physically—she rejected his dominant streak. Jared has no intention of letting Angie that close, no matter how sweetly she shivers beneath his hands.
Can two bruised hearts discover a way to make their tantalizing escape into the perfect way of life?
7) Tease us with a blurb or short excerpt
Angie drank in the feeling of his body against hers. His hardness to her softness, and part of her wanted to melt in a puddle at his feet, another part wanted to be bold and daring.
“Becca mentioned that you're closing down the ranch for a while.” Maybe a little flirting would work.
“Two weeks. There needs to be some renovations done, and the staff needs some downtime. It was a good time to do it with Tyler gone.”
“How much can be done in two weeks?” She thought back to when they were renovating the offices she now worked in, it seemed like it took months and with every little problem the workmen came to her.
“A lot, if you know how to motivate people.”
“Really?” Angie tilted her head up and fluttered her eyelashes. “And how would you do that?”
The corners of Jared's lips tilted up. “Lots of money.”
Okay, subtle flirting wasn't working with him. Her fingers trailed over his broad shoulder, to his neck, where she stroked his dark brown hair. His hand tightened on her lower back, bringing their hips together. And Angie swore she could feel his hard erection. Good, he wasn't immune to her.
She let her fingers skim from his neck, down over his shoulder blade, down his spine, over his well-defined ass, until she could rest her palm over his butt cheek. Then she squeezed it.
“Behave.” His breath brushed her ear and he swatted her ass.
“You hit me.” She couldn't believe it; he actually smacked her on the ass. Not that it hurt, but heat flowed through her body making her nipples grow harder. She’d never realized a little swat could make her so hot.
“I'll do worse if you don't behave yourself, Angie.”
“Promise?” The word was out of her mouth before she even realized it. The music ended, Jared escorted her back to the table and pulled out her chair.
His palms cupped her cheeks, tilting her face up to his. “We'll talk later.” He dropped a hard brief kiss on her lips before striding away.
Angie's heart skipped several beats while she observed Jared cross the room. She put her fingers to her lips and sank down onto the chair with her core pulsing with need and her panties wet. If he met her later, they wouldn't be talking if she had anything to say about it.
8) Which is your favorite character in the book? Why?
Oh that's a hard one, but I would have to say Jared, because he's restrained himself all his life and now he's found the one woman who can set him free and he doesn't see until it's almost too late.
9) What are you working on right now?
Right now I'm working on a sexy contemporary novel
10) Your biggest piece of advice to aspiring novelists?
Never give up and keep writing.
