Burning Bridges by Anne Krist

Genre Contemporary romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Not your typical “secret baby” book, this Southern romance is filled with emotion between a mature heroine and the man she used to love.

Letters delivered decades late send shock waves through Sara Richards’s world. Nothing is the same, especially her memories of Paul, a man to whom she’d given her heart years before. Now, sharing her secrets and mending her mistakes of the past means putting her life back together while crossing burning bridges. It will be the hardest thing Sara’s ever done.

A few years ago, Dee S. Knight began writing, making getting up in the morning fun. During the day, her characters killed people, fell in love, became drunk with power, or sober with responsibility. And they had sex, lots of sex. That’s how Dee spends her days. Her nights? Well, she’s lucky that her dream man, childhood sweetheart, and long-time hubby are all the same guy, and nights are their secret.

After a while, Dee split her personality into thirds. She writes as Anne Krist for sweeter romances, and Jenna Stewart for ménage and shifter stories. All three of her personas are found on the Nomad Authors website. Also, once a month, look for Dee’s Charity Sunday blog posts, where your comment can support a selected charity.

QUICK

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

No. Just contemporary romance, and not too sexy. I leave that up to my sister, Dee S. Knight.

How do you come up with ideas?

Burning Bridges came to me when I heard a news report on the radio while I was on a road trip. Music is also a good inspiration. Really, how do you not come up with ideas?

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

Um…the writing. By that I mean I can have everything arranged perfectly in my head but sitting at the keyboard and hitting the keys is not easy.

When did you write your first book?

Dee wrote her first boo in 2002 but I wrote Burning Bridges in 2005. I just republished it (updated and all) this year.

FUN

Leather or lace? Could I choose flannel instead?

Black or red? Black–it’s slenderizing.

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? I tried satin once and slid out of bed, so cotton. It’s safer!

Ocean or mountains? Mountains

City life or country life? Country

Party life or evening at home? Oh my gosh, I am the furthest you can find from a party girl. Give me a good book and cocoa (and my flannel jammies) and I’m happy.

Dogs or cats? I love them both! But if I can have only one…cats.

Know Paul, the Hero from Burning Bridges by Anne Krist @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #Romance #secondchance #war #rekindledromanceAnne Krist, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about the book.

Burning Bridges by Anne Krist

Genre Contemporary, Military Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Consider the role of strangers in our lives. An unknown postman in Virginia hides a bag of mail one day. His simple action set in motion untold consequences for many others—strangers—all over the country. How many bridges were burned in that forgotten mail pouch?

Sara Richards’s world is rocked when three love letters from 1970 are delivered decades late. The letters were written by Paul Steinert, a young sailor who took her innocence with whispered words of love and promises of forever before leaving for Vietnam. Sara is left behind, broken hearted and secretly pregnant, yearning for letters she never received.

Then Paul died.

Now, years later, she discovers the betrayal wasn’t Paul’s, when her mother confesses to a sin that changed their lives forever. How can Sara reveal to Paul’s parents that they have a granddaughter they’ve missed the chance to know? Even worse, how will she find the words to tell her daughter that she’s lived her life in the shadow of a lie?

Picking her way through the minefields of secrets, distrust, and betrayal, Sara finds that putting her life together again while crossing burning bridges will be the hardest thing she’s ever done.

Know Paul, the Hero from Burning Bridges by Anne Krist @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #Romance #secondchance #war #rekindledromance

Know the Hero from Burning Bridges

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Paul is an avid reader, so he always has something nearby to read. He like thrillers. Since he’s spent most of his adult life as a farmer, he keeps up with new techniques with farming magazines. He also likes to fish or just grab an apple and find a quiet place to relax.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Bing candy bars—a concoction of a soft cherry center surrounded by chocolate. They’re only available in stores in the Midwest.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Casual all the way. He’s used to jeans. He doesn’t wear tee shirts often, though. Casual, collared shirts are what he likes. When he dresses up, like for church or a special occasion, suits will do. But he gets out of them as soon as possible. He does splurge for some clothing. He has a fabulous sheepskin coat for those cold Iowa winters.

Does he know how to fix things?

He can fix most anything. Living far out of town, he and his brother and nephew rely on their skills to fix whatever breaks. Give Paul and engine—any kind of engine—and he’ll make it sing.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

In Vietnam, he tried to check a native family’s papers and return to his ship, but he nearly ended up in a bloodbath. It made his question why he and his fellow sailors were in Vietnam to begin with. The episode scared him. He relayed this in a letter to his love, Sara.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

Paul likes children but he doesn’t seek them out. When he’s around them he will generally stand back and let others take charge.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s used to getting up before daylight and getting right into hard labor, so he pretty much is fine with it. I wouldn’t say he jumps out of bed and starts whistling, but he knows how to get half a day’s work done by the time others are just rising.

Can he use chopsticks?

If he wanted to, but why??

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

Oh yes. Strong and black.

What apps would he have on his phone?

Weather, a favorite parts store app, Amazon Kindle

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean shaven

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Nope. He and a group of his shipmates decided to get tattoos once when they were on R&R in China Beach, but he said that he sobered up before it was his turn.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Private transportation. In Iowa he had a truck and a Jeep. He took the truck with him to South Carolina. He’s always lived in places where public transportation wasn’t feasible.

Recycle or toss?

He recycles, though he’s not rabid about it.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Know the Heroine from Burning Bridges

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

If it’s during the week, she hops in her car and drives to Charleston to take her daughter to a surprise lunch. If it’s not day time, she bakes and then takes the goodies to her mother’s house. Or she reads. But as a business owner, she doesn’t often have boring moments.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Pizza. She doesn’t eat it often because she likes to keep her weight in check, something she’s found to be harder the older she gets. And put pizza in front of Sara…? She’ll eat the whole pie!

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Sara lives in Beaufort, SC, where the winters are mild and the summers are hot, so she dresses comfortably. Usually that means loose clothes, and generally cotton. At work she’ll wear a top over slacks or a skirt, or a dress, with sandals or pumps. At home, she’s in shorts and tee shirt, or cargo pants. She wears hats because every Southern woman knows not to expose her complexion to the sun!

Does she know how to fix things?

Oh yes! She moved to South Carolina at seventeen, when she told her parents she was pregnant. She moved in with her spinster Aunt Barbara, who taught her that it was good to have a man to rely on if things needed fixing, but better to rely on yourself. Sara learned her lesson well. Before her dad died he helped her with problems around the house, because he wouldn’t take “No,” for an answer. Sometimes her friend and occasional lover, Marine Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Abrams, helps out now because when a gentleman wants to help, a lady must consider allowing him.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Sara adopted a lie about her background when she went to South Carolina to have her daughter. The lie grew to the point that even she believed it. But as we all know, lies are usually found out at some point, and when this one is revealed, Sara realizes that she’s hurt everyone she knows–and maybe destroyed the person she loves most in the world.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

Sara loves children. She never found a man to love well enough to marry, so she never had another child, but she likes kids and being with them.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s one of those hard to deal with people who enjoys getting up each morning. She loves her town and her job and her house and… Suddenly bluebirds are singing in the trees! Disgusting, really.

Can she use chopsticks?

Yes. She’s lived near a Marine base for many years and is exposed to many customs from around the world. But she doesn’t see the point. Food doesn’t taste any better with chopsticks than with a fork.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Coffee is a necessity, of course, and she drinks it black. However, like most people in the south, sweet tea is really the drink of choice except for the morning.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Sara isn’t one for apps. She likes something relaxing like solitaire or a brain-teaser app that stretches her mind, but other than that she has Google and a news app. That’s it.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Pierced. And since she’s good friends with local artisans, she has a spectacular earring collection.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned. Matthew has a tattoo of the Marine emblem, but she doesn’t find tattoos attractive, so she wouldn’t be drawn to a man with sleeves or too many drawings.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She’s able to walk or bicycle to work, and she lives close enough to town to shop without a car, so she doesn’t drive that much, or take public transportation.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
