Blurb: Taking Back His Widow:
When Livinia Jacobs grudgingly ran from the love of her life with his child in her womb into the arms of another man, she never thought she’d see Dean Stone again.
Eleven years later, she finds herself widowed in a picturesque little coastal town of Queensland and her past has come back to haunt her.
Livinia was completely aware of her lack of control in Dean’s presence. Heck; that was half the attraction in the first place, but her secret kept her feet firmly on the ground and her heart guarded from the once youthful dream of a future with him.
Dean forgot the most important thing of all about Livinia, she was his addiction. Ten minutes with her and he was craving her touch again, wanting to hold her, to feel her soft naked skin against his, to kiss those supple, pink lips. Hell, he wanted her period.
But can he forgive her and prove to her he’s no longer the scared boy he once was, but now the man she needed him to be- a man she could trust with her heart- no matter the sacrifice.
She tried to say his name. The words were there- Dean Stone. Only her throat restricted the sound.
“I knew it was you,” he said.
She wasn’t sure, but she thought she heard a hint of triumph or possibly accusation in his tone.
“It’s been a long time, Livinia.”
“Dean.” It came out in a whisper and more like a question then a statement.
After all this time, why is he here?
There was something tugging at her mind, something important that she knew she should be more worried about than anything else. But her mind wouldn’t cooperate.
Before she could decipher what it was that was so important, Dean’s voice invaded the fog.
“Is that all you have to say to me?”
The dark challenging look in his eyes made her blood simmer within her veins. Even in the dim light of the stations security lights, she found herself glued to his vivid brown eyes.
Once upon a time, she would have bathed in their brilliant depths with love and passion, allured like a deer to head lights.
Now, sadly and dangerously, was no different.
1. In three days, all power will go off, everywhere for a very long time. What will you include in your author survival kit?
Why is it I’m never prepared with a clever answer for this one, hmm. I would include a box of notebooks and a mass of pens. Really, I think that’s all you need; that and your imagination.
2. Where did the idea for the work you are promoting arise?
I had joined a writers challenge called 50k in 30days, it’s a time where you don’t have a lot of time to mull over details and you just write. So in order to do that, you write what you know instead of what you have to research and so I based this story in a small fishing town alike the one we used to live in called Tin Can Bay. It was amazing how easy it took off once I began.
3. What do you like to read?
I love anything with a happy ending but I adore a series where you’re utterly involved in the characters for longer period of time.
4. Tell us about the most exciting place you have ever visited?
I know this is going to sound a tad lame but I would say Sea World. Hubby, the kids and I stayed at Sea World Resort which backed onto the park and we could visit as many times as we liked. We paid for a close up encounter where first thing in the morning before the park opened we could feed and pat the sea lions, experience the shark tour which I declined the dive and feed option to the dismay of my husband. And then we got to the best one- the dolphins where we fed and got them to do some tricks and things. It was fantastic! We want to go back.
5. What is the most mundane, day to day, thing you can share about yourself?
Bah, that would be the washing up. I really, really, detest the washing up and yet to buy a dishwasher although I promise myself one every birthday, xmas, anniversary and even easter. Maybe this Christmas
6. What scares you the most?
Trivial: spider and snakes and of course there’s the sharks. Once, I was towing the kids on their boogie board through the water by pulling the leg rope when I saw a shadow following us to the side and freaked the hell out screaming shark while pulling the kids faster back towards the shore. It was moments later after I made such a fuss that I realised it was a shadow off casted from the boogie board.
I can hear you laughing from here but I tell you, it was so bleeping scary at the time.
7. Tell us anything but keep it G rated.
I’m a tv series Junky! Bones, Sons Of Anarchy, Supernatural, Veronica Mars, Battlestar Galactica- you get my point. I think this is why I have begun to write a series, it’s harder than I thought but I’m loving the intricacy of the plots and characters and their growth in the journey.
