Claudia, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your series.

A Week at Most in the Nature’s Crossing Series

A Week at Most is the first book in Claudia Shelton’s new small-town contemporary mainstream romance series, where an unemployed big-city newscaster is housesitting for friends. The three-years divorced woman is looking for trust. A man she’s introduced to has way too many secrets. And the one thing neither of them are looking for is love.

Genre: Contemporary Mainstream Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

Welcome to Nature’s Crossing, a small Missouri town needing more than a face lift to survive. Got a moment? We’d be happy to show you around…

Big-city newscaster Ashley Lanovan never dreamed she’d be divorced and unemployed at barely thirty-eight years old. Needing time to plan her future, she agrees to housesit for friends in Nature’s Crossing. After setting new life goals, and adjusting to small-town culture shock, she realizes that her priorities have been misplaced for the past ten years. Now her efforts to revive the struggling town, have gone a long way to restoring her confidence in people. But when it comes to Mark Garmund, the man she can’t shake from her thoughts—that requires trust on a whole different level.

Recently, Nature’s Crossing seems like more than just a place special agent Mark Garmund wants to visit friends every so often. After years working for the CIA, he’s ready for a change, and the Park Services has offered him a job. Now, he’s got his eye on ten acres with towering pines, a park-like setting and one sprawling house he could call home. Meeting newcomer Ashley Lanovan has triggered emotions he’d rather not face, and a few he would sure like to pursue. But he has more secrets than the world will ever know, and evidently, more enemies than he’d ever imagined.

Which book is this in the series?

Book 1

How many books do you plan for the series?

5 (at least)

How many books are completed?

2

What characters are the main stars in your series?

Each book has its own happily-ever-after stars, such as Ashley and Mark in A Week at Most. They will become an integral part of the series, along with their friends Janie and Patrick, but by the end of this book they’ve found their HEA so they’re story is over for the most part. As for the secondary characters, the star is Peabody!

What is the overall theme in this series?

Second chances, change and moving forward. Not only for the people, but for the community itself. Progress may mean change, but that doesn’t mean losing what’s truly important about a person, place or thing.

Nature’ Crossing series:
A Week at Most (Book 1)

What did you like best about writing this series?

I love the town’s setting! I love the on-going characters. And am looking forward to seeing the town of Nature’s Crossing revitalize itself. Plus, I already know a number of characters that will have their own HEA story.

Award winning author Claudia Shelton has already proven herself a contender in romantic suspense books that cross over into the mystery-suspense-thriller genre. Whether sexy protector agents or small-town family settings, her fast-paced stories keep the reader guessing all the way to the end.
Now, with the release of the first book in her new Nature’s Crossing series, she’s entering the contemporary mainstream romance genre (a crossover between contemporary romance and women’s fiction). The ongoing small-town saga is nestled in south-central Missouri, somewhere between Lake of the Ozarks, Table Rock Lake and Mark Twain National Forest.
Claudia is a two-time finalist in the Daphne du Maurier (unpublished) Award for Excellence in mystery and suspense. Her debut book release, Risk of a Lifetime, was voted one of Ebooks Galore’s top reads for 2014.
On a personal note, Claudia considers herself a music lover and water person, plus she enjoys anything to do with nature. In fact, the Nature’s Crossing series allows her to bring all of those things closer. Her main priority, though, is spending time with family, friends and her two sweet, conniving rescue dogs, Gidget and Daisy.
