What inspired you to write your book?
Seeing Red is the third book in the Hearts and Minds series. Meg appeared in the first installment as best friend of the heroine Carla. Seth has been in all three books as best friend of the previous two heroes–he’s been waiting a long time to get his girl!
Here is a short sample from the book:
“So what do you want? Are you done? Ready to start our year’s separation before you file your paperwork?” he asked.
“Is that what you want?”
“What I want is obviously irrelevant.”
She leaned back and craned her neck up to see his dark expression. “Excuse the hell out of me? You entered this agreement willingly.”
“I did. Just as you entered kicking and screaming.”
“You haven’t seen kicking and screaming yet.”
All of a sudden, the angles and planes in his face looked sharper, more shadowed. His enlarged pupils made his hazel eyes dark, and the slight flaring of his nostrils gave her warning that she’d pushed some button he’d never before exposed to her.
She was gonna push that button again. She jutted her chin up and said, “That’s right, Red. I spend every waking moment looking for an avenue out of this thing.”
“I see.” In one second, he had her hauled up over his shoulder, and before she could register direction or intent, her tennis shoes were yanked off one by one, and he didn’t lose his stride one bit. By the time he slapped on the bedroom light, she’d lost her socks, too.
