To some, it’s nothing more than a dream.
To others, a pretty fairy tale handed down through the generations.
For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.
Cerian, welcome to It's Raining Books. What are your favorite TV shows?
I have several must-watch TV shows. Currently they include The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Outlander, and Masterchef. I also like to binge-watch tv shows on Netflix. I’m currently binging Schitt’s Creek. Good stuff!
What is your favorite meal?
Nothing like lobster, steamers, and corn on the cob. Best if eaten by the ocean.
If you were to write a series of novels, what would it be about?
Oh boy, I want to write a series set on the Maine coast, that’ll will include lots of ghosts, but my dream series would be a fantasy series. I have more ideas than I do time to write.
Is there a writer you idolize? If so who?
There’s a list. I adore Nora Roberts. She has written so many incredible stories. Barbara Delinsky, because her stories are set in New England. There aren’t enough stories set in New Hampshire, so I’m always pleased to read hers. Dean Koontz writes amazing, and scary stories that you could imagine actually coming true. And I love how he throws in a bit of romance.
How did you come up for the title of this book?
I love this title, and I think it’s perfect for this book. The hero and heroine are thrown together in the middle of a bad ice storm, but the bigger storm is within Aidan, as he fights to allow Juliana into his heart and life, especially as she tries, against his will, to heal the wounds that have been with him for so many years.
Aidan has been in love with Juliana since the first moment he saw her, but if she can’t leave the tragedies of his past alone, he won’t be able to make a life with her.
She offers him a love he never dared to want, but loving her could rip open all the old wounds he’d never been able to heal.
Read an Excerpt:
Aidan stared at her, only inches away from him in the tiny bathroom. The bloodied cotton ball tight in her grip, she’d broken down into heavy sobs. He wasn’t sure how to handle it. Weeping women weren’t his specialty. Hell, women in general weren’t his specialty, and now he felt completely at a loss on how to comfort her.
He’d sensed her earlier mood, when their eyes had locked in the mirror. At that moment, restless awareness turned into a new sort of tension. She’d been so close to him that he could smell the clean fragrance of her shampoo and feel her warm, tea scented breath on his neck. Fighting a similar attraction, he understood why she’d resorted to anger. He would’ve done the same thing in her shoes. Anger he could handle. Tears? That was a different story.
Quickly he grabbed a few sheets of Kleenex from the box on the back of the toilet and handed them to her. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to make you cry. Really, it doesn’t hurt,” he said softly.
Juliana wiped the tissue across her eyes and didn’t look at him. “It’s not that,” she replied with a catch in her voice. “It’s the stupidity of you driving out there. Crazy and irresponsible. You should’ve gotten a lot more than a dumb little scratch on your face. You could’ve been killed, and you could’ve killed Fred.”
About the Author:
Currently she has 10 published books (No Going Back, Where One Road Leads, The Staying Kind, Going Going Gone, and The Storm Within from Soul Mate Publishing, and The Better Man, Do Overs, Finally Home, Light The Way Home, and That Kind of Magic self-published at Amazon). She’s looking forward to adding to this list.
