“Engaging, heart-warming, and full of romance, this one is bound to please readers.”

synopsis

As the owner of a successful florist shop, Khloe Harper trusts her instincts. She has a strong bond with her family and friends, but after being betrayed by her last love, she’s kept herself at arms’ length from romance. When dashing entertainment attorney Derek Thomas walks into her store, Khloe’s interest is piqued. What at first seems like a business relationship quickly turns into romance, and Derek slowly plucks away the petals she’s been hiding behind. Just as Khloe lets down her guard, she discovers that Derek may not be worthy of her love after all.

Frumpy Connie Albright has a faux fascination with an imaginary man named Walt, thinking that by sending herself flowers from him she’ll feel less out-of-place with the “mean girls” she works with. When she comes face to face with her possible prince charming and thinking she might have a happy ending, when a truth is revealed, she wonders if she’ll ever have a Cinderella story.

A recently widowed senior, Gabby Lewis, isn’t ready to give up on love—which means releasing herself from survivor’s guilt and taking a chance on finding happiness and companionship again. After signing up for an online dating site for senior citizens, much to her surprise, she’s matched with Harry, an energetic and loving man, who quickly eases himself into her heart. Will Gabby take the leap of falling in love again, knowing it’s possible to have two loves of her life?

As each woman’s story develops through flowers and cards sent from Khloe’s shop during the Fall months, they begin to learn that love can only truly blossom when you trust your heart.

Author Interview with Claudia Connor

Today on the blog we are featuring Claudia Conner, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author of The McKinney Brothers series.

Claudia Connor.png

 

To start things off, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your background as an author?

Hi there. Thank you so much for having me. I’m excited to be here.

Okay, my background as an author is that I have no background. Really. I’ve always been a big reader, but I was never interested in writing, never thought I was particular good at. In fact, before my first book, I’d never written so much as a short story. BUT, I’ve always made up stories in my head, I see them like movies, I just never considered writing them down because I didn’t see myself as a writer. I mentioned this to a friend, thinking everyone made up stories, not true I found out, and she encouraged me to try. That was four years before my first book was published.

 

One reviewer wrote, “This debut mixes passion and compassion in a contemporary story that has emotional depth.” How did you come up with the idea for The McKinney Brothers series?

Matt and Abby and all the kids lived in my head for years! Like maybe seven years before I began trying to write down their story. It started small and grew with the emotional scenes coming first and the rest filling in. It grew until I spent almost more time with them in my head than I did in the real world. They got louder, the conversations more exact. There were many nights I cried myself to sleep so deep in Abby’s head, during that scene…I don’t to ruin it but…if you’ve read Worth The Fall you that scene.

 

The third book in the series released in April, 2016. Can we expect more from the McKinney Brothers? What are you working on now?

I’m almost finished with the first in a spin off series, The Walker Brothers. These were the super swoony men who raised the heroine in book two of the McKinney Brothers. The series will begin with Nick and Mia, whose story was originally included in Worth The Risk, but my editor and I decided they deserved their own book. I love them and I’m so glad their story is getting justice. Can’t wait for you to read it!

 

I love that you have a playlist to accompany Worth the Fall! Do you listen to music when you write?

Thank you! Music does aften spark a story line or at least a scene, but, no. I do not listen to music when I write. Ever. Chances are I know the words and if I know the words my brain can’t help but sing along and I can’t sing words and write other words at the same time. I’m amazed by people who can.

 

What would you say is one of your biggest writing challenges? Biggest source of success?

My biggest challenge is making decisions. I see scenes in so many different ways, different points of view, different settings, that I often create a mess of pieces to sort out. LOL My process is ugly. My greatest success is probably just finishing the book. The last book in particular was it was extremely difficult, so that was a huge win for me.

 

You mention in your bio that you went to Auburn University. Are you a big football fan? 🙂

Huge. HUGE. I grew up in Alabama and if you know anything about college football, you know that one of the biggest rivals, if not THE biggest rival, in the coutry is between Auburn and Alabama. Serious, serious business down here. You did not say R*LL   T*DE  in my house. My dad was dead serious. He once sent home one of my friends who thought he was joking. Both of my parents went to Auburn, my husband and I went to Auburn, and we have a daughter there now. :))) WAR EAGLE!

 

How did you end up in England for your studies? Will you ever draw on that time for one of your books?

One of my gradate professors had worked with the headmaster of a picturesque school in a little town in Sawbridgeworth. Highwych. Look it up if you’re interested in that kind of thing. The things they do there are INCREDIBLE. SO different than public school in America. I might draw from my travels for a book some day. I’ve traveled around Europe several times and there is a new adult story simmering in my mind right now.  🙂

 

Where can readers find out more about you or your work? On which sites are you most active?

I have a new website that I’m excited about. That’s a great place to find information. I’m most active on Facebook and Instagram. I love pictures. I have a Facebook Page and also a Facebook private group.

Oh! Almost fogot!! Beginning in January, Newsletter Subscribers will receive Matt and Abby short stories each and every month! REALLY excited about these. So please, go sign up. You can never have too much Matt in your life! You’ll also get deleted scenes and release news.

 

Are there any questions I haven’t asked you yet that you’d like to share with the Book Buddy readers?

Um…have you read The Bronze Horseman? Or seen Gladiator with Russel Crow? I encourage everyone I meet to do those two things. LOL I’m very bossy.

Thank you so much for joining in on the Author Interview Series!!

Thank YOU so much for having me!!!

synopsis

The exciting conclusion of The Flyboy Trilogy! Lisa’s memory has returned along with her burning desire for wickedly hot Captain Lance Miller. Passion soars when the two unite. Lance is thrilled his goddess finally remembers him, but which Lisa is coming home with him? In some ways he is eager for the return of his original, sweet, loving Lisa, but he also adores his new and improved, sexy, opinionated, wild tiger. They are settling into their smooth sailing, happily reacquainted life when Lance’s flyboys are called to Afghanistan. This disruption is nothing compared to the turbulent arrival of Lance’s insanely hot, long lost half-brother, fighter pilot Derek Fuller. Derek’s arrival may cause Lisa’s path to be completely rerouted.

Crosswind.jpg

“I’m telling you this was definitely a rollercoaster of emotions. A great conclusion to The Flyboy Trilogy.”

excerpt

Step by firm step he approaches me, backing me against the wall. “Lisa, I can only be so strong.” He captures my wrists, holding them firmly above my head. Staring vehemently into my eyes, he continues, “I’m not a saint. I love my brother, but when it comes to you I lose my mind and my honor.” His eyes lower to my heaving chest. After dropping his head back to look at the ceiling, he returns his gaze and continues, “I’m begging you to stop whatever this teasing torment is, because if you keep this up we’re both going to wake with regrets.”

His forearms rest against the wall. Fanning his warm, labored breathing across my face, his hips press firmly against me. The heat of his rock solid erection between my thighs excites and lubricates every blessed inch of me. His head drops to my shoulder. Against my ear, he whispers, “You’re my kryptonite.”

“My hearts pounding,” I reply.

“Sweetheart, mine’s been pounding ever since I first laid eyes on you.”

I whisper, “You really want me…and think about me?”

With his forehead pressed to mine, he replies, “If you’re asking me how many times you’ve entered my thoughts I would have to say once, because, quite honestly, you never really left my mind from our very first encounter.”

“How much of what you say is bullshit and how much is sincere?”

He tosses his head back and laughs, before placing his lips directly in front of mine. “When it comes to you, Lisa, it’s all factual.”

“You’re maddening.”

His crystal blue eyes turn dark. “Well, that’s the pot calling the kettle black.”

His breath brushes warmly against my lips. “Are you going to kiss me?” I ask.

“I want to.”

“Then do it. I miss being kissed.”

head-shot1

G.L. Ross is a proud, sixth generation, native Texan. As a true Southern Belle, G.L. has always dreamt of the “happily ever after,” the prince riding in on the white horse sweeping her off her feet. She hasn’t found “Prince Charming” – yet (always an optimist) – but finds him every time she writes about her characters’ “happily ever after” endings.

Her motto in life is to “always find the good” in every person and situation. Whether through laughter, prayer, music, or a glass of wine or vodka, G.L. finds the good in life and shares her sense of humor, love, and adventure in her stories. Each book will inspire you to stand strong in faith and believe in second chances. Take flight with Lance & Lisa in Turbulent Passion, Burning Desire, and Crosswind (The Flyboy Trilogy). After twenty-seven years as a Flight Attendant, G.L. has incredible and often humorous insight into the aviation industry. She shares many of these stories in the Flyboy Trilogy. Plus, you must meet hunky rancher, Graham Gaskin, in A Rose Has Thorns…he is hot! Fall in love with Rachel and Brooks in The Strength of Love, an Inspirational Romance and recipient of the Reader’s Favorite 5 Star Seal.
