Meet Aislinn Salameh from Seduction in Sierra Leone.
Author Bio
Olivia Night, a
fictional character herself, has always been an avid reader and writer. She
found the romance genre in college and has never been able to get enough. One
sleepless night, the main characters of Book One in her Men of FTI  series
sprang from her head fully formed. They demanded she tell their story; so she
did. As they revealed themselves, so did two other intriguing characters. Those
characters convinced her to give them their own books because their stories
were worth telling too. And so Olivia suddenly became a romance author. When
Olivia is not writing, she has the best job in the world, which, too, will
remain a secret. In her free time, she reads, write, drinks wine, or is, most likely,
out emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Olivia lives in one of the most diverse
and vibrant cities in the U.S.—Baltimore. She lives with her cat, which she is
convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia plans to continue being
awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her only goal.

In the mangroves of
Sierra Leone, two strangers raised a world apart find themselves inextricably
connected. Seduction in Sierra Leone, the first in a series of three
novels, is a fast-paced tale of murder, lust, and love that transports the
reader to a foreign and mysterious world of danger.
Aislinn Salameh, an
American relief worker, is searching for purpose in her self- imposed lonely
world. The stranger who enters her village on a blistering hot day seems more
animal than human. She knows she should stay far away but can’t stop herself
from being drawn to the mysterious man.
Brandt Fairlane is
haunted by the sins of his past. Detached from others, Brandt has spent his
life alone. His line of work is too dangerous for the luxuries of love and
family.
When Brandt sees
Aislinn and her haunting eyes, he knows he must possess her. But when Brandt’s
past comes back from the dead and Aislinn is caught in the crossfire, it is up
to him to keep her safe. In order to survive, they must learn to rely on one
another. As they run for their lives, the heat between them becomes undeniable.
Now, Brandt must not only protect Aislinn from a madman committed to stealing
her away, but he also must protect her from himself. Because if Brandt steals
her body and her heart, he’ll never let her go.
Introducing Aislinn Salameh
Welcome to Romance Lives
Forever! We’re happy to have you here today.
Thanks! I am happy to be here today!
Name: Aislinn (Ashling) Salameh
Age: 26
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Maryland
Profession: That depends on the year. Last year I was a teacher, this year I am a
relief worker in Africa.
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): I am Arablc (Salameh) and Greek. Though my first name is Gaelic. My
mom was a bit nutty. Hence my pretty odd name.
Describe your body and
build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as
dimples, freckles, or scars
.
I’m super short, and would never be called skinny. I think the feature
most people notice, or stare at are my eyes. They are a really, really light
green. Brandt, my man, says they are the color of the inside of a cucumber.
Who is the significant
other in your life?
Brandt Fairlane, CEO of Fairlane Trade International
Please tell us a little
about yourself
.
I am a currently a relief worker in Sierra Leone. I grew up all over
and have a hard time settling. I travel a lot because of that and I kind of
just go where the wind takes me.
Do you see morality as
black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
I think I am more of a situational person. I’m not sure that people
appreciate situational ethics, but in my experience what is right in one
situation may be wrong in another.
What past event causes you
the most fear?
Losing my parents. We were abroad when it happened and when they died
I was truly alone. It was terrifying and that feeling has stayed with me.
What is your biggest need?
To feel that I am, in some way, being of service to others.
If you could make any one
thing happen, what would it be?
I would bring my parents back. That, or take away what happened to Brandt
as a child. But rewriting the past can have repercussions and I’m not sure that
I would like how that would change the future.
How emotionally expressive
are you to others?
That is entirely up to who it is. I tend to be guarded around most
people. But I learned to be open with Brandt. It wasn’t the easiest thing for
me to do, but it was worth it.
Who in your life has the
power to hurt you the most and why?
Well, that would be Brandt. He never would, of course. But when you
love someone they have all the power in the world. It’s kinda an exchange of
power in some ways.
What would you like to
tell your writer?
Thanks for sticking with me! I know sometimes I was difficult to put
down on paper because I tried to keep from exposing myself fully to you. But
I’m glad I eventually did. You told our story perfectly.
What would you like people
who hear your story to know?
Life can take you on some many different types of journeys. Any
journey that involves love is the best kind. I hope you love reading about my
journey as much as I loved experiencing it.

Interview with Brandt Fairlane
This interview is
designed for your hero or heroine to tell readers about himself or herself.

Tell us about
yourself, please.
My name is Brandt
Fairlane. I am the CEO of Fairlane Trade International. We are the largest arms
supplier in the Middle East and Africa. The company exchanged hands by force
when knowledge came to light that the previous CEO had started to expand the
business to include human trafficking. Myself, and two others went in and took
over.
Authors call what you
want but cannot have “the conflict” — what is yours?
Aislinn Salameh.
Aislinn is a relief worker in a small village in Sierra Leone. I visit the
village for a friend who calls in a favor I owe. I try to stay away from her
for numerous reasons. One being that Rick, the previous CEO of the arms
company, may retaliate at any time. Having a weakness is a dangerous thing in
my business. So in order to keep her safe I try to stay far, far away from her.
In the story world
your author created, explain what it is you fear most and why
.
My biggest fear is putting Aislinn in danger.
Once I knew I couldn’t be without Aislinn I knew that I was potentially putting
her at risk. There is nothing scarier than knowing the woman you love is in
danger or could be hurt.  It goes beyond
being scared. You have to tell yourself to keep breathing, to keep functioning.
You’re so beyond terrified that your body won’t function unless you tell it to.
Tell us about your
significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Aislinn is a relief
worker in Sierra Leone when I meet her. She is a bit of a restless soul and
left her home and career as a teacher to search for what and where she will be
happy. Like me, she lost her family when she was young and is a bit of a loner
because of that. Aislinn is a force of nature and is the only person in my life
that has no problem standing up to me. She is beautiful and funny and she is a
loving and kind person. I knew the second I saw her that I wanted her to be
mine.
What is your family
like?
I don’t have a
conventional family. I know my parents are still alive, but I lost them a long
time ago. My family consists of two guys I consider my brothers; Patrick and
Logan. I met Patrick when I was a kid. We were both homeless on the streets of
Cambodia. I took him under my wing and we have been a family every since.  Patrick and I met Logan years later. He helps
run Fairlane Trade International. Logan isn’t much of a talker, but he is a
solid person and you can depend on him for anything. Something haunts his past,
but he doesn’t talk about it. So we don’t ask about it. 
What special skills
do you rely on?
I was left on the
streets of Cambodia as a kid. I had to learn how to survive or I’d die. I have
been in the military, I have been in an off shoot sector of the United Nations
peace keeping organization and then I rose through the ranks of the arms
company. I am good at a number of things. Most of these are things that the
majority of people would have no clue how to do. I have been trained by the
best military leaders and have acquired a very specialized subset of skills.
If someone from your
past showed up, who would you NOT want it to be, and why?
For obvious reasons,
I would not want Rick to show up out of the blue. I took his company over and
he is a man set on vengeance. There are few things more dangerous than a man
fueled by vengeance.
Why are you happy (or
not happy) with the way your story ended?
For the most part,
yes. The end of my story leaves one of the characters in a very dire situation.
That character’s story is the focal point of book two in the series.

Seduction series sprang from her head fully formed. They demanded she tell

with her cat, which she is convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia
plans to continue being awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her
only goal.
.
What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
The characters and storyline quite literally popped into my head one
day. Much of who the characters are was already there from the beginning. The
hard part in writing this book was filling in the in between. I knew how it was
going to end, but not how I was going to get there. A lot of it just came out
and flowed whereas other parts took me days to figure out.
Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
Brandt came to me before Aislinn did. He intrigued me from day one. I
love that he is so guarded and strong but also so incredibly vulnerable. I am
really attached to him and I wanted the readers to get a glimpse of him in
hopes they would find him as intriguing and loveable as I do.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that
surprised you?
As I said before, Brandt is actually very vulnerable. I had no idea
how deep this ran in him. Aislinn is the perfect person for him. She can treat
him with care without him feeling coddled and sees no failing in his
vulnerability. 
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Yes! Book Two, “Seduction in Seville” will be out this winter (date
tbd) and the third book, “Seduction in Scotland” will be out early 2016. These
two books are Patrick’s and Logan’s stories.
I am also working on a separate series that has been occupying a lot
of my mental space recently. This new series will have four books all following
a different woman but all very close friends. It will be contemporary suspense
as well.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I am a huge dork with a passion for American History, Buffy the
Vampire Slayer and Dean Winchester.
Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give
this one a try?
My books are a perfect mix of suspense and romance. The fast paced
nature of the book will keep you reading and the love story will have you
wanting more! I have read a lot of books where it is too heavy on the suspense
plot and leaves you wishing for more love and other books that is too heavy on
the love and the plot never quite develops. I think (and hope) my books are the
best of both worlds.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?
I hope you love the characters as much as I do!
