Stressing Tomás Escobedo from No More Secrets by Fiona McGier #RLFblog #RomanticSuspensePosing as a tutor in a rich household in Colombia is the cover for agent Tomás Escobedo to search for evidence to convict the dangerous drug lord who lives next door, in No More Secrets, a romantic suspense novel by Fiona McGier. But when the lead actress in the indie crew filming a movie there tells him she doesn’t believe that he’s a tutor–that he’s just acting like one–he fears his cover will be blown by the beautiful blonde and endanger both of them.

Let’s meet Tomás Escobedo from No More Secrets, a romantic suspense, by Fiona McGier. 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 latest book.

No More Secrets by Fiona McGier

Genre Romantic suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Steamy R

Kelly, Raul, and Jared are making another movie together–this time in Colombia. Tomás is there, posing as a tutor, while trying to find the evidence to bust the drug lord who owns the mansion next door to the one they’re filming in. Kelly can’t figure out why his vibe doesn’t say tutor to her–until she figures out his secret. And he has no idea why she’s so quick to figure him out, until he learns about her ex-CIA mom, and ex-KGB step-father. They can’t fight their growing attraction to each other. Will it get them both killed? Or can they find their way to a happily-ever-after, once they have no more secrets from each other?

Stressing Tomás Escobedo

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.

Please tell me about your hero.

Age: 35

Gender: Male

Birthplace: A small town near Mexico City.

Profession: Secret Agent

Ethnicity: Mexican.

What does your hero look like?

He’s tall, over 6′, with dark brown hair that usually has a blond streak in the front. He has a gold hoop earring in his left ear. His eyes are very dark brown. He looks like a man who works out a lot, because he does. His body is a weapon that’s kept him alive for years.

Who is the significant other in his life?

Kelly Ann Sheridan, daughter of the heroine in Her Last Resort, book 3 in the Minnesota Romances series. She’s a blonde actress who first met her co-star, Raul Roderick, and their director, Jared Sorrenson, in the first book, For the Love of His Life. She’s vivacious and much more intelligent than most people think she is– she looks like Malibu Barbie, with a permanent tan, but has alert blue eyes.

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.

There will be food and drink, and dancing–lots of dancing. Tomás likes nothing more than to get a female out on the dance-floor to show off his moves. Unfortunately, Kelly has no sense of rhythm. Even though this can throw off his style, he doesn’t care. He’ll be dancing with her until he has to drag her away so they can be alone.

How does the hero feel about being at this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?

He’s spent many years perfecting his control over his body language, so you never know if his casual relaxed attitude is real, or just what he wants you to see. But if his woman is there and there’s dancing, he’ll be holding her closely, and he might let his guard slip and stop paying active attention to others around him. But he still will be alert to any signals that there is something going down.

Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?

He always studies a place out of habit, checking for exits and possible dangers. He mingles when he’s really relaxed. Otherwise, he acts casual while observing everyone and everything closely.

If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?

He enjoys Mexican beer, when it matches the food. He also enjoys shots of expensive tequila. But he never drinks to excess, since he’s spent too many years being cautious.

How much drink is his usual?

Since he’s a tall, muscular man, he can drink more than others and still maintain his control over himself.

The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?

He doesn’t hide–he faces danger head-on. He might drag Kelly off into a secret place so he can grope her, without an audience.

Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?

When he’s being himself, relaxed, he will stay with the people he trusts. When he’s in public with Kelly, he’s always at her side, to protect her from her public–some of whom get grabby sometimes. One look from him is usually enough to stop that.

If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?

He will end it. And the person who started the fight won’t be happy about how he does it.

Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

He does the tossing. He’s always in control of himself, so he never gets tossed out.

Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?

He doesn’t stay long in public with Kelly, because he always wants to get her alone.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?

He will show them his IDs and explain who he works for. If he’s undercover, he’ll defend himself, using as little force as possible.

How does the hero react to hearing a scream?

He runs to check on it. He runs toward danger–it’s his job.

If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?

He assesses the threat and devises a plan to end the violence as quickly as possible, while attracting a minimum of attention.

If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?

He acts on his plan and stops the assault.

This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?

This has never happened to Tomás. His training has always saved him.

The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact in some way. What does he do?

He’s polite but coldly terse. And he’ll excuse himself as soon as possible.

Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?

He wouldn’t hesitate to take over and ensure that the outcome is favorable for himself, as well as any innocents involved. He’ll deal with hurt feelings once the danger has passed.

The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?

That he will get out of this, as he has so many other situations that seemed hopeless. He’s got a good track record of getting out of tight spots, so he’s confident.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

No one thing special, but he’s got a lot of respect for his handler, Malcolm, who has never steered him wrong.

What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?

He’s always been able to get himself out of tight spots, so no matter how tough things get, he’s supremely confident that he can escape–especially now that he has Kelly to return to.

What one thing would you like readers to know about your hero?

He was introduced to readers as a young agent in Undercover Lovers. He thought he was in love with the heroine, Ameena. But he was too young to understand that he was just jealous because she chose his older partner over him. Since that hadn’t ever happpened to him before, he took it badly. He used to be open to assignations with any combination of females and males–he enjoyed sensuality in many forms. But now that he’s older, he’s ready to settle down. He just didn’t realize it until he met Kelly.

Stella hoped to be able to finally relax after retiring from 30 years with the CIA in Her Last Resort, a romantic suspense novel by Fiona McGier. But people are being sent to try to kill her. When her daughter wants to spend time with her at a resort in northern Minnesota, she hopes that will be remote enough to be safe. If not, she will have to show them what this older woman is capable of doing!

Let's meet Stella Taylor from Her Last Resort. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I'm Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Her Last Resort.

Her Last Resort by Fiona McGier

Genre Romantic suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R rated

She's ex-CIA, a hunted woman used to relying only on herself. He's ex-KGB--with connections to those who can help her. Will she let him? Can glasnost (openness) lead to rapprochement (a bringing together), and maybe even to love as west meets east? And what about her daughter? Can she salvage any kind of relationship with the adult her child has become?

Her Last Resort has a heroine and a hero both in their 50s. She's retired after 30 years as an agent for the CIA--he's ex-KGB. Her daughter from a failed marriage wants to have a relationship with her, so she agrees to spend a week in a cabin at a resort owned by the ex-KGB agent. It's the tale of two love stories, because love can happen at any age, even 25 years after you first saw each other. But also the love between a mother and child is a powerful love story too. The only problem is that someone is trying to kill the heroine, and she's never asked for help from anyone before. Can she accept the help of her ex-"enemy"? Or will one of her attackers be successful?

When someone dies, we say they "kicked the bucket." Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a "Bucket List."

Age: 52

Gender: Female

Birthplace: A small town in Virginia

Profession: Retired after 30 years with the CIA.

Ethnicity: Italian-American

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I'm a medium height woman, about 5'7", with light brown hair that is starting to gray. I have an olive complexion, due to my Italian heritage, and light brown eyes. I like to wear sundresses in the summer, to show off my toned arms. Being an agent for so long means that my body has been my most reliable weapon for a long time, so I've had to keep it in the best of shape.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

When I was a young agent, I was sure that I'd made the best possible choice for my future. I loved doing things all over the world, that helped further the cause of freedom and democracy. But I met a man, fell in love, and ended up pregnant. I had to confess to him what my job was, and he wanted me to quit. But the agency doesn't let you go that easily--we're too expensive to train. So I switched to a desk job for as long as I could, which allowed for us to get married and have our daughter, then a son . Then I had to choose between my career, and my marriage, since my husband gave me an ultimatum. That led to our divorce. I've been estranged from my family for a very long time, and now that I'm retired, I'm hoping I can get to know my adult kids.

Who is the significant other in your life?

I never expected to meet another man who would be so right for me. But Ivan, the owner of the resort I stayed at with my daughter, is ex-KGB. What could be more perfect, for both of us, than falling for someone else who used to be in the business?

He's taller than me, with clear blue eyes. He's a couple of years younger, but by our age, who cares? And he adores me. I haven't shared myself with anyone for so long. I can't help but return his love.

If you haven't made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you're at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order?

I have a younger sister, but I haven't seen her for years. We're not allowed to stay in touch with family when we're live agents.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

This is so embarrassing! I loved to play with Barbie dolls, and they were always jet-setters, traveling all over the world, doing exciting things.

Describe your favorite food and how it's prepared.

Are you kidding? I'm Italian. Pasta all the way! I especially love manicotti and stuffed shells, but pasta with mushrooms, peas, prociutto and a cream sauce is very good. And wine--a good meal is made great by the wine served with it.

Tell us about your best friend.

<smiles shyly> That would be my man, Ivan. But also my daughter Kelly, who has become an Oscar winning actress. I missed both of my kids for so many years. I feel so lucky that she wanted to reconnect with me--which led to my meeting Ivan. <sigh>

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

I've traveled to many countries all over the planet. I'd like to return to the village in Italy that my Nonna was from--she taught me Italian when I was a child, which helped me to learn many more languages over the years. And if Ivan ever wants to return to his native Russia, I'd be glad to go with him, since I'm fluent in Russian as well.

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

I hope to never have to return to Washington DC ever again. I spent too many years as a puppet whose strings were pulled from there. Now I'm free, I'm staying away.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

I really hope that my son, David, will someday want to get to know me, as his sister Kelly has. He was only a toddler the last time I saw him.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

My old handler at the agency. I don't respect him anymore.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

I'd love to bring Ivan with me to meet my parents when they were young and healthy. I miss them so much! They were the ones to teach me that I could do anything I wanted to do, despite being female. I owe them so much.

Meet Fiona McGier

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

I chose Stella because there are very few romances written with a heroine that is in her 50's. Just because people get older, doesn't mean that they stop wanting romance in their lives. It's not just a thing for twenty-somethings. Heroes are often older, but heroines are usually much younger. Stella is a kick-ass heroine! Even though Ivan is two years younger than her, he's one lucky man!

When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?

I didn't realize at the start that Stella has another name--or that she's got very personal religious beliefs. Both of those things revealed themselves to me, literally, as I wrote the words.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

This is the third book in my Minnesota Romances series. After I'd written the fourth book, No More Secrets. I thought I was done. But there's another story bubbling around in my head, so maybe there will be a fifth book?

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I used to agonize over being an at-home mom who had 4 kids in 5 years. I wondered if it was possible to be a feminist if you were an at-home, nurturing mom. The answer is yes, since all four of my kids are feminists--though the boys might not agree with the term. I based Stella's relationship with Kelly on my relationship with my daughter, who I also call Golden Girl.

Why should readers who haven't picked up one of your books before give this one a try?

My books always have steamy, open-door sex scenes. Some readers might not like to read about an older couple who still like to have fun in the bedroom. But I hope that other readers might be pleasantly surprised to read about a new love happening to an older couple.

Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?

If you ever get a chance to get up to Grand Marais, Minnesota, don't be surprised if a lot of the town seems familiar. I've enjoyed camping up there along the Gunflint Trail, for many years. I love it so much up there that I had to set a series there, so I could imagine myself there when I'm not. The setting is almost another character in these books.

Know the Hero from For the Love of His Life by Fiona McGier #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomanceAn action movie star has to face his demons when he’s chosen to star in an indie movie in For the Love of His Life, a contemporary romance by Fiona McGier. The director’s cousin is assigned to teach him how to portray an outdoorsman, but ends up teaching him what’s important in life, also.

Fiona, 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 For the Love of His Life.

For the Love of His Life by Fiona McGier

Genre Contemporary romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): NC 17

When a famous action movie star known for indulging in his addictions to excess, needs to clean-up for a major role that even he doubts he can deliver, the indie director sends him up to a resort owned by his grandmother in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of upper Minnesota, to learn to commune with nature. His guide is Veronica, the director’s cousin, a tall, athletic woman who has the relaxed, sensible nature of someone who has the self-confidence that comes from having family around to love and support her. Raul’s initial clumsy attempt to seduce her makes her laugh–so he calls her fat. Is there any hope for a relationship after that rocky start? Can Raul overcome his hard-partying nature to discover what is really important in life? And will Veronica ever believe him, when he “lies for a living?”

Note: Book 1 in the Minnesota Romances series. Price just dropped to 99 cents.

Know the Hero from For the Love of His Life

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

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

Note that Raul has two personnas–the one before he realizes what an empty life he’s been leading, and the one after he falls in love for the first time ever. So if it’s pre-Veronica Raul, he’ll call his dealers to find out where the latest party is–they’ll bring the blow, he’ll get his pick of celebrity whores, and a good time will be had by all.

If it’s the Raul who is in love with Veronica, he’ll choose to spend every minute he can with her–or in the outdoors, enjoying fishing, running, and hiking in the woods.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Old Raul would rather do snort cocaine and drink to excess than eat.

New Raul craves Gram-Marie’s soups and homemade bread, as well as Veronica’s pies.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Old Raul wears anything off the floor that passes the “sniff” test.

New Raul cares about what he looks like, to please Veronica.

Does he know how to fix things?

Old Raul–nope.

New Raul–as long as it involves something he’s learned from Veronica, he can do it–like fixing fishing lures, poles, and canoes/oars.

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

Old Raul tried to kiss Veronica when he first met her. He assumed she’d be thrilled to be kissed, maybe screwed, by a celebrity like him. She dodges his kiss and his face hits the wall. He tells her he thought that’s why she brought him outside-away from her beloved grandmother, who he then insults. She slaps his face for insulting her grandma. He retaliates by calling her fat and plain. She laughs, then tells him what she really thinks about him–about all of the venereal diseases she’s sure he must have from being such a man-whore, and how he’s smart to hold off on doing porn until his looks fade, which they will soon, at the rate he’s destroying himself with drugs and alcohol. He’s vaguely insulted.

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

Old Raul would ignore them.

New Raul can’t wait to have a family of his own to belong to, so he’d study them.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Old Raul is hung-over.

New Raul can’t wait to get out into the sunshine to enjoy a new day.

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

Both Raul’s drink lots of black coffee.

What apps would he have on his phone?

Old Raul doesn’t play with his phone. He only uses it to find his dealers and where the next party is.

New Raul uses it only to keep in touch with Veronica.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Old Raul is clean-shaven, to keep his movie-star image bright.

New Raul likes to look scruffy, since Veronica likes him that way.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Both Rauls have unadorned skin–less to hide during his frequent nude scenes in the crappy rom-coms and action movies he’s usually cast in.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Old Raul needs a driver, because he’s frequently too buzzed to drive.

New Raul is a careful driver.

Recycle or toss?

Old Raul wouldn’t care.

New Raul communes with nature, so he’d recycle.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Two For Tuesday by Fiona McGier #RLFblog #NewRelease #ContemporaryRomanceWhen a world-famous cardiologist has his personal life going up in flames, he seeks out the “one who got away,” in Fiona McGier’s Contemporary Romance, Two For Tuesday. She’s tried to forget him, but he didn’t get to be rich and famous by not pursuing his dreams. And she’s never been good at saying, “No.”

Fiona, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Two For Tuesday.

Two For Tuesday by Fiona McGier

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R.

Dr. Marcus Jones is world-famous for inventing a procedure to make cardiac surgery quicker and safer. He has achieved much in the ten years since he graduated from medical school, including accumulating more wealth than he had ever dreamed of growing up in the projects in Chicago. But he has not been as successful in his personal life. His lawyer-wife is divorcing him–but then he was never really in love with her. He has only felt that way about one woman–the one he dated back in college–the one who “got away”. But he didn’t get to be rich and famous by not pursuing his dreams. And she’s never been good at saying, “No.” When he finds her name on the internet he contacts her, determined to see if he can rekindle what they once had together, back when he could only spare one night a week away from his studies, and his world revolved around Tuesdays.

Why did you write this book?

I wrote this book for a couple of reasons. One is that I dreamed the bar scene. I’ve learned that when my muse wants to direct me, I’ll get a story arc or a scene in my dreams. Those have become some of my best books. The second reason is that I’m an ardent feminist who has always enjoyed sex–a lot. So I wanted to write a heroine who approaches life and men with a real passion, and wants to experience as much as she can, while she can. I don’t believe in “slut-shaming.” I believe in “slut-celebrating!” LOL.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love to read sci-fi, especially sci-fi romance. Lately I’ve read some good Steampunk.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Elaina Carteret from Race to Redemption by Shari Elder. She loves to drive fast in intergalactic storm racing, and she’s a strong, independent female. I identify with her, totally!

What are you working on at the moment?

I’ve got multiple books going in my laptop. I’m trying to force myself to start finishing one at a time, instead of hopping from one to the other.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Nothing is under contract. I still need to finish writing them! (Hides head in shame, then eats some dark chocolate, with sparkling wine as a chaser.)

Read the #ContemporaryRomance The Right Choice by Fiona McGier #RLFblogA bride feels disrespected on her wedding day, so she runs out of the church in the new contemporary romance, The Right Choice by Fiona McGier. Two men want to marry her–but which should she choose?

Fiona, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about The Right Choice.

The Right Choice by Fiona McGier

Genre Contemporary

Book heat level R

Veterinarian Pamela Wilson always used to run away from home to get attention from her status-conscious, preoccupied parents. Years ago she met a man who loved her unreservedly, but her parents didn’t approve of his blue-collar job, so she ran away from him too. When the ambitious lawyer she’s marrying answers a phone call while she’s walking down the aisle, it’s the last straw! She runs away again, this time to a cabin her parents don’t know about, owned by the mechanic. Does he still own it and is he still single? Will she finally stop running away and make the right choice for her future?

What’s in your character’s pockets, backpack, or purse?

What does your character always carry?

Pamela always carries her IDs and some money.

What does your character dislike carrying but has to?

Pamela isn’t fond of cell phones. She has to carry one for work, since she owns her own veterinary practice. But she has an answering service for emergency calls. She hates how dependent her fiance is on his phone. And to preclude anyone from using the phone’s GPS to track her, when she runs away, she leaves her phone on top of her wedding dress, in the limo, after she runs into her practice to change clothes.

Does your character carry money and if so, in what form (cash, credit, etc.)?

Pamela usually carries both–she likes to have some cash for small purchases. But this time, she has to withdraw a lot of money, because she’s “on the lam” and doesn’t want anyone to be able to locate her based on any credit records.

What does your character carry related to a job or calling?

She has business cards in her wallet, to pass out to prospective clients.

Does your character every carry things for other people? (like a mom with toys, etc.)

No, but this time she also brings along her tote bag with a change of clothing in it. She always has a couple of spare tee shirts, shorts, jeans, and underwear in her office at her practice, for when her patients might be “over-excited” while at the vet.

Questions for the Character to Answer About the Author

What does your author always carry?

She has a very small Vera Bradley purse that is actually little larger than a wallet, but it has a shoulder strap.

What does your author dislike carrying but has to?

Her cell phone. She doesn’t like them any more than I do. In fact, she still has a flip-phone, because texting and calling is all she ever does with it.

What does your author carry for luck?

She’s always got a few business cards with her author name, her blog link, and some other info about her books. Some of them have are pierced with a pin that says, “Reading is Sexy.” She loves to give those away!

How organized is your author’s backpack / purse?

Very! It’s so small it’s got very little room for much besides IDs, credit cards, some cash, the business cards, and a tiny tube of hand sani.

What does your author prefer to use when it comes to items like backpacks / purses?

She’s been into Vera Bradley stuff for years. One of her sons gives her a gift card every year for her birthday, so she can buy a new tiny purse. She’s also got bigger bags for various purposes, like duffel bags for camping, and one always packed with toiletries for when she travels.

I sub in high schools during the school year. Otherwise I’m writing and blogging about my books–and reading. Not only do I write erotic romance, I love to read it too.
I often read while camping with my long-time HEA. Our four adult kids sometimes join us. Shinrin-yoku is forest bathing in Japanese, and as long as there’s no snow on the ground, that’s where I’ll be and what I’ll be doing–as often as possible.
I also enjoy sewing–mostly masks these days– crocheting afghans to keep my loved ones warm, and baking–cookies, muffins, and especially pies.

Fiona, 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.

Prescription For Love in The Reyes Family Romances series

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings) R

Enrique, the oldest of the Reyes sons, was named after his father’s father, creating a special bond between them. While in medical school, Enrique accompanied abuelo back to his hometown in Mexico. Now Enrique is the doctor there, enjoying his practice and his adopted town. The only thing he is missing is a wife. Enrique wants an equal: a strong, independent woman whom he can woo into sharing her life with him. When Tanora Doyle, a bi-racial research biologist arrives in town, he is intrigued. But will the baggage she carries keep them apart? Or can Enrique cure whatever ails her, and solve his problem as well?

Which book is this in the series?

This book is number 4 in the series. I was hoping to get readers interested in the rest of the book when I published this one as a free read, 10 years ago. It’s published by Smashwords, but available on many other sites–just not on Amazon.

How many books do you plan for the series?

Right now there are 6 books, but I have a couple unfinished in my laptop, so who knows how many more will appear?

How many books are completed?

There are 6 books published–this one is a free download, but the rest are available only on Amazon (my publisher’s choice.)

What characters are the main stars in your series?

In the first two books, the focus was on the romances of 2 divorced female friends of Juanita and Edgar Reyes, one of whom marries his brother. In the third book, the 9 Reyes children are grown up, and their romances take center stage. Enrique is the oldest son. The oldest daughter Rosa, who was the teen-aged baby sitter in the first two books, is the focus of the 3rd book, and she makes an appearance in the 4th book. All of the Reyes family members and friends weave in and out of most of the books. Reading them becomes a chance to visit with old friends.

What is the overall theme in this series?

That a large, loving family is an excellent place to grow up. And that finding romance can be fraught with problems, but there is someone for everyone to love–when they’re ready. Some fall in love at a young age, while for some, it takes a lot longer.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

1-Never Too Old For the Game of Love

2-Recipe For Love

3-Love By Design

4-Prescription For Love

5-Analysis of Love

6-Love Therapy

What did you like best about writing this series?

My mother’s parents both came here from Poland back at the last turn of the century. Mom was 8th of 10 kids. I loved visiting with her huge, loving family, and I had 22 cousins. I made the family in this series Hispanic because they are the newest group of immigrants who are integrating into U.S. culture. And most of the romances are inter-racial because that’s the way I want the world to be–when you can fall in love with the person, regardless of their color or their nationality. And your family will welcome your choice into the clan.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

The Minnesota Romances–4 books

Female Secret Agents–2 books

One vampire saga

Werewolf series–2 books

One stand-alone book was just published, and another is under contract.

Where can we find links for all your books?

On my website: www.fionamcgier.com, there are pages for each of my books, along with the universal links to find them all. This is my only series of books on the Kindle Unlimited program. But this particular book is a free download–just not on Amazon..
