Interview with TD Hassett

Why did you write this book?
I didn’t mean to write this book, it just wouldn’t leave me alone.
I had been working on my first paranormal romance and this suspenseful love story
kept bugging me. I couldn’t stop thinking about Darling Roberts and her story. Maybe
it was because I named my Siamese cat after her character but whatever, I couldn’t
get her situation out of my head.
Perhaps another reason the story wouldn’t leave me alone was
the setting. The story takes place primarily on a secluded lake in Connecticut where some folks
have gone missing. I live on just such a lake, although to my knowledge no one has
turned up murdered around here. For a variety of reasons the hero and heroine will
have to weather a couple of weeks together in a spooky lake house. Passion, drama
and mystery ensue. I promise a happy ending but I refuse to make it easy for this
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love contemporary romance the most, followed closely by historical
romance and mystery.
What is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own characters)?
I just finished reading another author’s series and fell a little
in love with Jack Storm. He’s another sexy rock god with a good heart. What’s not
to like?
Do you enjoy films and/or TV shows? Which are your favorites?
I watch a lot of movies but not so much television. I did really
enjoy Lost, especially all those episodes where Sawyer takes his shirt off. His
character called to me.
What are you working on at the moment, and what are we likely to see from you in the coming months?
I am working on two books right now. One is about an Incubus
that falls in love with a veterinary technician. Will his love be strong enough
to let her go with her soul intact? I am also working on the prequel to my Love
and Music Series. The band is just starting to get off the ground when Rick Houston
is injured on stage. Troubled nurse, Jenni Mitchell can’t stand this rude rocker
and can’t wait to get him off of her floor. Unfortunately for her, Rick is going
to be sticking by her for a while and there’s nothing she can do to change that,
at least not for three months. She needs money after Rick’s advice gets her fired
and he needs a fiancé for a K1 visa to stay in the States. They’re both hiding something
from the other but neither will be brave enough to show their true selves. It has
been fun writing about this opposite attracts couple.
Please tell us about your
latest book.
Darling Roberts is going back to the lake house her mother disappeared
from thirteen years ago. She needs to decide to stay or sell. The locals believe
the place cursed, but her best friend thinks it would be a blast to spend the weekend
there before heading to Europe. BFF Madison is
determined to set Darling up even if that means dragging a recently widowed rock-and-roll
drummer to the scene of a murder.
Ross Daniels has a secret. He can’t stand the pitying looks well-wishers
have given him since his wife’s accidental death. The European leg of the Becket
tour can’t come soon enough. A weekend stay at a mutual friend’s lake house seems
like a decent way to kill a couple of days before hopping a plane, at least until
he spends some time with temptation herself. Passions ignite and Ross feels his
heart beginning to beat again. Darling isn’t who he thought she was and he can’t
get enough of her sweet soul and lush curves.
Darling is determined to take charge of her life and the lake
house is just the place to begin. Ross is a scrumptious distraction but she knows
she has to keep things in perspective. Why would a world famous drummer want to
hang out with her in a small town that even the locals want her run out of?
