No Good Without You by Emma Ames

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Swan Malone never imagined leaving Sparrow, Texas, but when her college cheerleading gig leads to fame, and her first film becomes the top-grossing movie of the year, she realizes dreams really do come true. However, not everything in her life is as good as a fairytale.

Nothing could have prepared Army Sergeant Teague Shanahan for what he endured while held hostage in enemy hands. Battered and scarred, he returns home hoping to put his life back together but finds he’s still a prisoner of his past–too broken to be fixed, even by the woman he loves.


Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?

Contemporary romance and romantic mysteries with a kick of humor.

How do you come up with ideas?

Everywhere from something I hear in a doctor’s office to a picture on a magazine.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?

The expected answer here is editing. However, I think every part is equally important. Without an idea–no book. Without a plot–no story. Without a good cover, title, and opening line–no interest. Without a good story–no readers.

When did you write your first book?

I’m just getting started in the ‘sweet’ romance department. No Good Without You is my first book, which is a ‘cleaner, sweeter, version of Ann Everett’s steamy romances.
