Author Interview

Hello and welcome, readers! We have Vicki Green here with us today. Vicki, Thanks for visiting us.
Thank you for having me.

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I published my first book in 2013. I’d been having a dream for about a year and came home one day after work and decided to write it down on a Word document. I kept adding to it and showed it to a Blogger friend. She told me to keep writing. She wanted to know what was going to happen next. So, I did. That became my first book! While I was writing, an idea came to me for the next book in the series. I published the second book that same year.


Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine's Day Anthology.
Dancing with the Enemy. The song that inspired my story is Dancing with a Stranger, but I couldn’t use that due to it being the songs title. As the story progressed, Dancing with the Enemy became more suited. 

How did you come up with the storyline?
As I said earlier, I’d been hearing Dancing with a Stranger on the radio a lot. Visions became more and more clear as I wrote the story. Mysterious. Intriguing. The song really helped guide me. 

What inspires you to write?
Pictures. A song. It’s really odd sometimes when an idea will hit me. Once, I was brushing my teeth, listening to the radio. A song came on and a story idea came right away. 

What is your favorite genre to read?
Contemporary Romance, Romance Suspense, and Romantic Comedy. I guess that’s why I love to write those genres.

What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about outside of writing?
My family. My husband and my two sons. Oh! And, our 3 dogs. Also, we have friends in a band, and I LOVE to dance! We go see them almost every month, when we can. I am very passionate about dancing.

When you are not writing, what do you like to do?
Dancing with my husband and hanging out with our friends. Spending time with our boys, as much as I can. Our youngest son moved out over a year ago so I don’t get to see him as often. Our oldest son just got a new job where he works nights so our time with him has become more limited as well. 

Tell us about your other books.
Well, I have 26 books published. Country Romance, Romance, Romance Suspense and Romantic Comedy. Four series and a few standalones.

New Release! Loving Boone ~ A Cougar #Shifter #Paranormal #Romance

New Release! 

Loving Boone is Now Available!




Today is my mother's birthday. If she had lived, she would have been 62. It's difficult for me to imagine what life would be like if my mother had survived the leukemia that killed her. She passed away at the age of 31.

My mother was a major influence in the 11 years that I knew her. Her loving hand has guided me during my entire life, even beyond her living years. She was an avid reader and I discovered years after she died that she had made several attempts at writing fiction. I believe had she lived, she may have one day written and possibly published her work.

She may be gone, but she will never be forgotten. As a teenager, I followed in her footsteps as a reader. And without realizing it at the time, I also followed her path to writing.

Now, here I am, decades later publishing my work on her birthday.

Yes, that was planned. In honor of my mother.

Here's my birthday gift to my mom. I hope she can read it in Heaven. For I surely know, wherever she is, there's a large stack of romance novels nearby.

Loving Boone


A Cougar Shifter Paranormal Romance



Cougar Shifters Book #1
Beth-Ann Miller returns to her Tennessee mountain home to find chaos erupting between her survivalist family and their shape-shifting neighbors. Her father is convinced the were-cougar clan is responsible for the murders occurring in their area and interrogates one of the shifters, Boone Evans, her childhood sweetheart. When Boone declares several members of his shifter family have gone missing including his little brother, Beth-Ann suspects someone else is behind both the murders and abductions.

Boone never epected to see Beth-Ann again. When she frees him from her father's cabin and promises to help find his brother, Boone doesn't plan on rekindling their passionate love affair or facing the pain of past mistakes. Nor does he plan on coming face to face with the man responsible for altering his family's life forever.

With men hunting the were-cougars, can Beth-Ann and Boone risk all to have a future together? Or is loving Boone too high a price to pay?


Excerpt:

Boone returned her stare, his green-eyed gaze boring fiercely into her heart, her father's rage reflected in his gaze. It wounded her to see him look at her with such fury.

Although they hadn't parted on the best of terms when she left for college, she had done nothing to hurt his people. And she didn't believe her father would either.

But Boone stared at her with such accusation, he didn't need to verbalize his thoughts.

She was one of them.

Beth-Ann parted her lips, trying to think of something appropriate to say. Nothing seemed right. What words could she say to fix this? To fix what happened between them.

There was nothing.

So, she closed her eyes, took a deep breath and straightened her shoulders.

When she opened her eyes, he remained straining against his bonds and staring as if he wanted to cut her apart.

But this was Boone.

He'd never hurt her.

She stepped forward. From the corner of her eye, she caught sight of her Uncle Travis about to protest, but she raised her hand to silence him. She stopped when she was an arm's length away from Boone.

He kept his gaze fastened with hers, not even blinking as she approached.

Beth-Ann gently pushed a few sweat-soaked strands of hair out of his face so she could view his injuries better.

She gasped at the blood seeping from several cuts on his cheeks and around his eyes. Redness discolored his cheekbones from the impact of her father's fists and swelling was not far behind.

His face was going to be one big bruise.

Even as she stared, the flesh around his left eye was growing puffy.

"You're going to need ice," she muttered, more to herself than to him.

"I'm going to need that knife," he answered, nodding to the dagger still sunk into the floorboards.

"Not here," she said with a shake of her head. Her father wouldn't kill him. It wasn't in his nature. "No one will hurt you here."

"Not anymore?"

She flinched.

This wasn't the Boone she left behind. It was as if she gazed into a stranger's face expecting to see the boy she remembered. He might look the same, but his eyes had changed. His soul had changed. He'd been wounded in ways she couldn't comprehend.

And he had it right. Despite her beliefs, he'd been hurt by her father's hand. Geoffrey already inflicted injuries on him that might have killed a normal human.

But Boone wasn't human, was he?





Now Available!

#BookReview ~ Mischief and Mistletoe #HolidayRomance




Mischief and Mistletoe by Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverley, Joanna Bourne, Patricia Rice, Nicola Cornick, Cara Elliot, Anne Gracie, Susan King

Unwrap the most romantic of Regency delights in this sparkling holiday collection...

Christmastime in England--a time for passionate secrets, delicious whispers, and wicked-sweet gifts by the fire. From a spirited lady who sets out to save her rakish best friend from an unsuitable engagement, to a bold spy who gets the unexpected chance to win the woman he's always loved, to a vicar's daughter who pretends to be a saucy went, these holiday tales will make you curl up in front of the fire for a memorable season of mischief and mistletoe...



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Review

There are eight holiday romances included in this anthology and I enjoyed all of them. I admit, I even got a little teary-eyed over a few of them. Because these are all short stories and there are so many, I'm only going to try to write my thoughts in a sentence or two for each.

She Stoops to Wenchdom by Mary Jo Putney ~ Oh, this was an exciting one to start off the book. The heroine disguises herself as a barmaid for a chance to kiss the handsome hero so she can stop pining after him. I loved the interaction between these two. This is one of those stories that are so good, I'd like to read a longer version.

Miss Brockhurst's Christmas Campaign by Jo Beverley ~ This was probably my favorite in this collection. Penelope Brockhurst has been in love with Ross Skerries since childhood, but she never thought he'd feel the same about her. Now she's to spend Christmas with him and his family as well as a woman who is interested in marriage with him. Watching Penelope's interactions with Ross and her rival were entertaining to say the least. Loved it!

Intrigue and Mistletoe by Joanna Bourne ~ This had so much story in it that I would have preferred to read a full-length novel. There was a lot of backstory to this couple.

Wench in Wonderland by Patricia Rice ~ This was another favorite! I cried with this one. The poor hero is overwhelmed with his responsibilities and his household is a mess. In sweeps the heroine, with a mistaken identity issue, who manages to fit perfectly into his life. But when her true identity is revealed, is it possible for them to have a happily-ever-after?

On a Wicked Winter's Night by Nicola Cornick ~ A sweet story of a second chance romance and the fear of discovery.

Weathering the Storm by Cara Elliot ~ This was different from the typical Regency romances that I've read, but enjoyable.

The Mistletoe Bride by Anne Gracie ~ To date, I've loved every Anne Gracie novel I've ever read and this short story is no different. It's another case of mistaken identity as a woman traveling to live with her miserly uncle is mistaken for the "mail-order-like" bride that the hero needs to secure his inheritance. I loved this one!

A Wilder Wench by Susan King ~ In one short story, this author includes the tale of several generations of family as the heroine is forced to take drastic measures to save her brother.
