ALL THERE IS by Violet Duke.

Emma Stevens made a fresh start in the small town of Juniper Hills, but she still lives with the guilt of an impossible choice from her past: saving her sister—but leaving her stepbrother behind—in a fire that destroyed their home. The boy next door may have dragged them to safety, but he also caused the fire that devastated her family. She swore she’d never forgive him, so she’s stunned when he shows up on her doorstep.


Q & A

Welcome to Romance Junkies, Violet.  We’re so glad you could join us here at Romance Junkies. To start, will you please tell us a little bit about your current project?

My debut with Montlake Romance, ALL THERE IS, is a second chance romance between Jake and Emma, who reunite fourteen years after Emma’s life was devastated by a tragic fire…that Jake took the fall for setting.

When was the moment that you knew you had to be a writer?

When I was little and used to write all sorts of stories in my composition books.  That was also the moment when I knew I probably wasn’t going to make it as an illustrator.  LOL.

Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day?

My English 101 teacher in college.  She told me to “write what’s in me to write.”  And that’s never failed me in my career since.

Describe the “perfect” hero. What about the “perfect” hero for you?

The perfect hero for me is just a regular guy’s guy (the kind who grills out and has beer with his buddies on the weekends) who is funny, great with kids, and sweet with his woman.  And yep, my hubby is definitely my perfect hero in that sense.

What are some of your favorite pastimes? Do you have any hobbies or collections?

I know most authors say reading, but for me, it really is true.  I read about 3-4 books a day, every day (I read very fast and I only sleep 2 hrs a night). I’m not a collector, mostly because I have a tendency to lose track of more things than I collect.  LOL.

What has been your biggest adventure to date?

Being a mom.

How do you describe yourself? How would your family and friends describe you?

I’m a happy hermit.  My family and friends would say the exact same thing.  LOL!

What project are you working on next?

No writing projects right now (I’m on medical leave so just focusing on treatments and recovery).

Thanks so much for having me over!!  🙂

Emma Stevens made a fresh start in the small town of Juniper Hills, but she still lives with the guilt of an impossible choice from her past: saving her sister—but leaving her stepbrother behind—in a fire that destroyed their home. The boy next door may have dragged them to safety, but he also caused the fire that devastated her family. She swore she’d never forgive him, so she’s stunned when he shows up on her doorstep.

Jake Rowan has never been able to escape the worst day of his life, when he took the fall for his older brother, who started a tragic fire. Years later, he’s carved out a life as a carpenter, but when he runs into Emma again, he’s reminded of everything he’s lost—and everything he still longs for.

Jake has never forgotten Emma, the dream girl whose life he destroyed. And she’s never stopped thinking about her first crush. As they grow closer—and old secrets are unearthed—will they be able to help each other heal, or will their hearts remain broken and burdened by the past?
