Q&A with Anna Brooks | Love, Me

9781635760774_fc
In honor of her new release of Love, Me, we’ve brought Anna Brooks onto the blog and asked her the tough questions. Like, you can only read one book for the rest of your life so what will it be? Those tough questions.


R O M A N C E 

What was the first romance you ever read?

I don’t remember the name of it, but it was one my mom was reading by candle light. I leaned over to try to get a sneak peek of the words on the page and my hair caught on fire. My mom and I ran around screaming as she hit me on the head with the paperback until the fire went out.

 

What’s a book you could read a million times and never get tired of?

Knight or At Peace by Kristen Ashley. They’re my go-to rereads.

 

Who are your favorite film and television couples and why?

Favorite television couple is Dan and Roseanne Conner from Roseanne because they’re so real. Favorite film couple is Quincy and Monica from Love & Basketball because their second chance love story was the first one that hooked me. I tend to be a sucker for those… hence why a lot of my books are second chance.

Q&A: Interview with William Danbury of ONCE A COURTESAN

Once a Courtesan Liana Lefey

Love the Beauty and the Beast remake? (Those costumes, that character design, that uncomfortably attractive candelabra) Get a taste of that courtesan charm with the ever-so-dashing William Danbury of Once a Courtesan!


Physical description: 6’1”, slender build, wavy brown hair, dark blue eyes, age 29

Occupation: Officer of the Crown, Westminster Special Constabulary (AKA “Gonson’s Boys”) in the year 1727

Hello, Mr. Danbury.

Please, call me Will.

All right, Will. Thanks so much for granting us this interview.

The pleasure is mine, madam.

You’ve just played a significant role in what is being touted as London’s first major triumph over the rampant crime that has plagued the city in recent years. Tell us a little about yourself. Why don’t we start with your family?

Very well. I’m my mother’s only son and the youngest of eight children—

Wait, you have seven sisters?

Q&A: Tristan MacDougall from A STAR TO STEER HER BY

A Star To Steer Her By Beth Anne Miller

Love a man with a sexy accent, a good sense of humor, and a surprising wealth of knowledge on sailing? Meet Tristan of A Star To Steer Her By!


Beth: Tristan, thanks for taking a few minutes of your time in Puerto Rico to chat with me on the phone.

Tristan: I’ll always make time for you, Beth. (said in delightful Scottish burr).

Beth: swoons Thanks, Tristan. So, can you tell the readers a bit about yourself, where you’re from, that sort of thing?

Tristan: Sure. I’m twenty-one years old, and I’m from just outside of Glasgow, Scotland. I’m currently working as a deckhand on a schooner that runs a semester-at-sea program. We’re at various ports-of-call throughout the Caribbean for the next six weeks or so and then we head up the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. to New York.

Beth: Sounds pretty heavenly to be in the Caribbean right now, given the cold weather in New York.

Tristan: Aye, it is.

Beth: What’s it like to work with students who have never been sailing before? Do you get frustrated with them when they don’t know what they’re doing?

Tristan: I love it. I grew up sailing with my parents, and since I learned it as a lad, it’s always been second-nature to me. It gets a wee bit frustrating if students tend the wrong line, or aren’t paying attention, or sit around idle when there’s clearly work to be done, but for the most part, they all take to it really well, and I love watching them learn to love being out at sea. There’s nothing like being in a squall, with the ship flyin’ across the water and the wind tearin’ at your hair.

Darcy or Wentworth?

Definitely Darcy.

Christian or Gideon?

Gideon

 

Rochester or Heathcliff?

Heathcliff

 

Spock or Kirk?

Q&A: Jessica Lee of UNDYING DESTINY

Undying Destiny Jessica Lee

Guys, we have such a mid-week treat for you! We got to pick the brain of one of our favorite paranormal romance authors. Don’t miss our Q&A with Jessica Lee, author of Undying Destiny!


What was your favorite aspect of pulling all of these stories together?

Great question. You know, I think it would be getting to dig deeper into who these men are that formed the Enclave. I adore a tortured alpha male, and getting to pull back the veil on the Enclave men and watch them fall for their women was so much fun.

 

Most frustrating?

The most frustrating…? Life getting in the way of telling their stories. It was a long time between books two and three and four, so it was frustrating for me to have to wait so long to get back to my Enclave warriors.


FIVE BOOKS

If you could only read five books for the rest of your life, what five books would they be, and why?

Oh wow! Tough question. Gah! If I had to choose, I would say it would have to be the last five novels in Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander series. I fell so hard for those Highlanders!

Q&A: Cathryn Fox of PRIVATE RESERVE

Private Reserve Cathryn Fox

Rough news week? (When is it not?) Ease back into the small mercies of the world with the wonderful Cathryn Fox, author of Private Reserve!


FAVORITE MOVIES:

 

What are your five favorite movies with romance or romantic elements?

I have two favourite romance movies, Addicted to Love, and When Fools Rush in.

In Addicted to Love, I love when Meg Ryan is talking about what love is. It’s crude but funny.

In When Fools Rush in, I love the moment when Matthew Perry asks Salma Hayek to marry him, and says, “You are everything I never knew I always wanted.” Sigh…..

Did you have any of these scenes in mind when writing scenes from your latest release? No, not really. But I think it’s the moment when the other person realizes what love is, and that they are in love and those are my favourite scenes to write.

FAVORITE MOVIES:

What are your five favorite movies with romance or romantic elements?

 

When Harry Met Sally

The Proposal

Sense & Sensibility

Sixteen Candles

Clueless

 

Describe your favorite scene from each one (you can include a Youtube clip if you want as well).

 

When Harry Met Sally: My favorite scene is at the end when Harry finds Sally at the New Year’s Eve party and lists out every weird reason why he loves her.

 

The Proposal: Any scene with Ryan Reynolds in it. But if I have to pick just one it’s the one where he tells her to marry him so he can date her. And then they kiss!

 

Sense & Sensibility: Although I do love the romance between Elinor and Edward, I’m always more invested in the unrequited love that Colonel Brandon has for Marianne. So my favorite scene is when Marianne wakes from her coma and thanks him for bringing her mother. That scene is a glimmer of hope that she will finally give him a chance!
