Play Is It True with today’s guest Diane Saxon, author of Along Came Dani, a Contemporary Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Deserted by her boyfriend, labeled a tramp, and thrown out of her family home, a pregnant sixteen-year-old Dani Westin left behind a life she would rather forget.

In a small town where relationships are close and gossip rife, Dani tries to find a place for herself and her daughter, despite the early influences of her upbringing and the neglect of her mother.

With help from Aunt Jessie and Hairway to Heaven, Dani works hard, keeps quiet, and flies under the radar, ever conscious of the town’s disapproval. Until the day she soaks the local deputy sheriff to the skin, grabs herself a whole load of unwanted attention, and appreciates what a real man is made of.

After his first encounter with the defensive sixteen-year-old Dani, Deputy Sheriff Sean Swann has kept his distance from the luscious hair stylist. Not afraid of the trauma she might inflict on his person, he’s more concerned about the damage she may do to his heart.

For years he’s waited, but when he considers the time is right, Sean makes his move, undeterred by the disasters that come his way. Patient but determined, Sean realizes Dani needs to leave behind her past for them to have a future.

Play Is It True with today’s guest Mary E Thompson, author of Too True To Be Good, a Contemporary Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

His life was good…

Zach Bennett was content to go to work, hang out with his family and friends, and entertain a woman once in a while. As his family found love all around him, he was content to stay single. Unattached. Happy.

Besides, he had enough to worry about with a new chef breathing down his neck for his job.

She faced the truth every day…

Gianna Brooks always wanted to work with people. She saw enough growing up to know kids need all the help they can get. They deserved to be safe. Loved. Happy.

Which is why she’s determined to get her new client into a forever home.

But the truth isn’t always good…

The last thing Zach needs is a little girl showing up on his doorstep claiming she’s his. Her social worker hot on her heels, and demanding a place to stay, definitely doesn’t make it any better. Especially with Gianna’s curvy body and bedroom eyes, and his daughter’s sad sweetness, making him consider keeping both of them.

Gianna knows she should run. Zach knows he should send them away. But neither of them can resist the pull toward the other.

Mary E Thompson Social Media

Mary E Thompson grew up loving to read, like a good little girl. Many nights she would fall asleep with the flashlight still turned on as she hid under the covers trying to finish the last few pages of a book. As an adult, the light from her ereader means she doesn’t need a flashlight, but she still stays up way too late to finish a book.

When Mary’s not reading, she’s playing with her two kids or living out her own real life romance novel with her hubby. She has a weakness for chocolate, especially when it’s paired with peanut butter, and has been known to have a bad day just because there’s no chocolate in the house. Unless there’s wine. Then everything is okay.

Mary grew up in Buffalo, New York and swears she’s the only local to never ski or snowboard. Soccer was always her sport, with a couple adventures white water rafting and skydiving to keep things interesting. Mary moved to South Carolina for college but missed Buffalo every day. Yeah, she thinks she’s crazy, too. She somehow convinced her South Carolina born and bred hubby to return to Buffalo to raise their kids and live out their lives. He’s still not sure what he was thinking.

Play Is It True with today’s guest NJ Walters, author of Eternal Brothers, a paranormal vampire romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

When an anonymous late-night tip sends reporter Sophia Daring to the cemetery, she isn’t prepared for what she finds there—a grisly murder scene and the body of a woman completely drained of blood. Sophia’s never been scared off a story before, but this time all the clues point to one disturbing conclusion: this was the work of the mysterious and dangerous Dalakis brothers. And just as unsettling for the fiercely independent Sophia is the irresistible pull of the stranger also working the case, the sensually compelling Zane York.

A ex-cop, Zane has made it his personal mission to prove that the secretive Dalakis family are powerful vampires and ruthless killers. But when his investigation takes him to New Orleans and their latest victim, he begins to suspect that the Dalakis are being framed by an enemy as dark and mysterious as they are. And even as he struggles with his doubts about the family, there’s no doubt about his hungry response to the hauntingly beautiful Sophia. He knows he must make her his own, whatever the cost.

As the smoldering chemistry between Sophia and Zane ignites in a delirious haze of passion, they will find themselves immersed in the Dalakis family secrets and the trail of murder that leads to their door. And as their fears and suspicions war with an unquenchable desire, she and Zane will discover that a secret from the past may pose the deadliest threat yet…

First, tell us about your book.
Kylie Quinn is positive nothing could be more embarrassing on her first day of college than having her unmentionables go sprawling across campus. She was wrong. Very wrong. Having a super-sexy co-ed twirl them around his finger like he’s privy to all of Victoria’s Secrets is so much worse.
Xander Collins has met his match with Kylie—she’s gorgeous, smart, sarcastic as
hell, and doesn’t give a damn that he’s loaded. She’s also a virgin. And he doesn’t do virgins. Been there, done that, and he’s still paying for it. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be friends, despite the fact her flirty moves leave him with balls a shade of blue he never knew existed.
Kylie is special, and she deserves more than his typical “one and done” routine. But as his life implodes and his not-so-brilliant plan to take things slow blows up in his face, he’s at risk of losing everything—including Kylie. Now he must decide if everything he’s been fighting so hard for is worth it without her by his side.

No. I’ve never been able to figure out the appeal of that dish. But, I’ve never acquired a taste for seafood, either. You order the sushi and I’ll get pizza!
you have a pet?
Yes, I have 2 pets, a dog and a cat.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Genre: historical romance
Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I’ve written many books, and have previously published two full-length novels (one a romantic suspense and one an historical romance) and three novellas (contemporary romance).
this book is part of a series?
Yes, this is the first in a series. I’ve just contracted the second in the series, Love and Turmoil, and hope it will be out before the end of the year.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No, I can’t say that I lost sleep, but the characters and the plot were my constant companions until long after the book was finished. I’m considering writing a short story about Max and Sybil’s life a few years later because I want to visit with them again.
you did research for this book?
Oh, yes, lots and lots of research. That’s my favorite part of writing historical fiction. I especially enjoy searching for an obscure tidbit that I can include in the story.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Hm…not in the book exactly, but sheep are extremely important to Sybil. And there’s a question about fleas. Oh, and a very interesting conversation about fruit bats.
this book has more than one genre?
No, just historical romance.
you speak more than one language?
No, alas, I’ve lost most of my childhood French. As a Canadian, with French being the official second language, I was instructed in French from grade three thru grade 12. I remember enough to locate a bathroom or a library, LOL.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes, but only recently. We moved back to Nova Scotia a few months ago.
you love to read?
Yes! I can’t imagine not reading. I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I even belonged to a children’s book club and can remember my feeling of joy when I got home from school to find a new book in the mail.
you are never late?
I HATE being late and usually leave early to avoid it.
you love pizza?
Yes. Pretty much any topping except pineapple – I don’t understand that one at all.
you love sushi?
No. But I have to confess that I’ve never tried it, nor will I ever. I have a psychological block to the concept of eating raw fish, or any other type of raw animal protein.
you have a pet?
Yes, two cats: Mogget, a girl, and Bruno, a boy. She’s a princess and he’s a simple soul.

Andrea R Cooper Social Media

Andrea has always enjoyed creating characters and stories. But it wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels. She writes fantasy, paranormal, contemporary, and historical romance. Under the pen name, A.R. Cooper, she writes YA Fantasy. Her debut YA series is Shadow Bloodlines.
What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids (two boys and a girl).
Andrea writes fantasy, paranormal, historical, and romantic suspense.
She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.
