She’s ready to take back what’s hers
Since the moment a local crime boss claimed ownership of her family’s fairground, Sasha Todd has dreamed of righting the wrong. Now it’s time to act, and backing down from the man’s estranged son is definitely not an option. After all, giving up her legacy to hot-blooded John Jordon means losing the chance to finally heal the wounds in her past.
Stopping John in his tracks—and resisting the sizzle between them—is Sasha’s best defense. But there’s more to him than she thought, which changes everything. With what matters most at stake, she’ll have to risk a brand-new future with John, or walk away from the man whose heart belongs to her.
Please tell us a little bit about your current projects?
I am currently editing the next book in my Harlequin Superromance Templeton Cove series. Her Hometown Redemption will be released in September. I am also nearing the end of the first draft of my fourth Victorian romance with eKensington. Once that’s done, I will be drawing up a proposal for two more books in my Harlequin series.
Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day?
Give yourself permission to write a ‘crappy’ first draft – Julie Cohen. Fabulous advice!
What has been your biggest adventure to date?
My biggest adventure and most romantic time to date is when I mentioned to my husband that Nora Roberts was coming to a castle in Ireland to give an afternoon tea and book signing. Within 24 hours my husband had booked the flights, a night in the castle and seats at the afternoon tea. Time of my life!
How do you describe yourself? How would your family and friends describe you?
Me: Caring, hardworking and a thinker
Family: Mad, funny and a workaholic!
What is your favorite comfort food?
Chicken Satay – never fails to cheer me up J
What is your favorite season? What do you love about it?
I am a summer girl, which is kind of ironic seeing as I live in England and our summers are short and very hit and miss! When we do have a lovely, hot day I am happy to read and write outside and then in the evening, watch the sun go down with a chilled glass of white wine. Heaven!
What is the one modern convenience that you cannot do without?
Washing machine – I cannot imagine living the life my grandmothers did and spend days hand washing clothes. Oh. My. God!!
