Day 2 Focus: Settings and Celebrities

Nicole Morgan, author of Swept Away 
What celebrity would you most like to be stranded on an island with? Hmm... now that is one tough question. There are so many dashing and devastatingly handsome men that I wouldn't mind being stranded with, but out of all of them I'd probably have to say Shemar Moore of Criminal Minds fame. 

Blurb for Swept Away
Felicia Jennings had a satisfying career working as a paralegal in the District Attorney’s Office. She was married to her college sweetheart, lived in one of the best neighborhoods in town and drove the best car that money could buy. Everything about her life was perfect. At least that was how it appeared on the surface.
Trevor Jennings had just landed a promotion he’d spent years trying to obtain. His hard work had rewarded him as the youngest senior account manager with the top marketing agency in the state. He had a beautiful wife who he loved more than words could say. And they had it all, except for the one thing that they wanted the most.
When their hope for the future is shattered by cruel fate, the two soul mates find their love being put to the ultimate test. With each passing day resentment builds and the two grow further apart until they eventually drift into different worlds that don’t include one another.
Will they be lost from one another forever? Or will circumstances intervene and bring them back together once again?   
Victoria Pinder, author of Tempting James
What inspired you to choose your setting? I made up an island called Grand Bohemia because I wanted to have a specific type of hotel with conference capabilities, set on a beach and the setup wasn’t exactly to life. So rather than day trip from Miami to the Bahamas which might be fun to do, I just fictionalized it. (I live in Miami so there is the $49 boat I could take.) Now the beginning parts where they are in Miami, those are all real settings as I can drive and notice things.

Blurb for Tempting James:
She’s on the run. He’s a distraction. They’re begging for trouble.

James Clancy made a promise, and he intends to keep it. But protecting his former Marine buddy’s sister proves to be more than he bargained for. He’s already been burned once. He’s not about to let that happen again.

The last thing Scarlett Hawke needs is a babysitter. What she needs is a husband, and a way out. When she meets James, she knows he oh-so-wrong for her, but resisting him might be the hardest thing she’s ever had to do… until she discovers who he really is and just how dangerous that can be.

Will Scarlett let love happen or will it only make her complicated life worse?

Lena Bourne, author of Rider’s Fall (A Viper’s Bite MC Novella)
What inspired you to choose your setting? My story is set on the tropical beaches of Brazil, and I chose this setting because I really want to visit Brazil one day. This way I get to imagine the setting without actually having to go.

Blurb for Rider’s Fall (A Viper’s Bite MC Novella)
Chloe swore off men forever when she escaped to Brazil to start a new life, because her old one was destroyed by an ex. But when the orphanage she volunteers at is threatened, she’s forced to accept the help of a hot as sin biker. But Rider is a man with no home and no wish to have one.
Will the love they find in each other be strong enough to change any of that?

    1. Heat, sun, sand, no kids [hopefully], good health. Who could ask for anything more. Except maybe a willing partner.
