Love For Sale

by Linda Nightingale

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

INTERVIEW:

  1. What or who inspired you to start writing?

A very long time ago, in another century (1990s), I read the Anne Rice novel The Vampire Lestat. That book inspired me to pick up my pen again after not having written anything since my teens. Sinners’ Opera, then called The Vampyre Effect, was the first book I wrote. I loved the hero and followed him everywhere—to parties, concerts, but not the bathroom—and the manuscript grew to over 1,000 words. Needless to say, it had to be trimmed considerably…

I’d love to live here. Read Debby’s description of Hilton Head Island

Pink Fuzzy Slippers Authors

Hilton Head 2010  May 050When my husband, David, retired four years ago, we moved from Ohio to beautiful Hilton Head Island. We’d been coming here for years with friends and had fallen in love with the place.

If you’re ever undecided on where to spend your vacation, Hilton Head has it all! It offers everything for a family, or for a couple looking for a romantic getaway, or just a bunch of friends wanting to get together. There are numerous hotels, or you could rent a condo or a home in one of the many gated communities known as plantations.

Bike paths are everywhere. You can take a leisurely ride beneath the live oaks past lagoons where you might see an alligator, a great blue heron, or an anhinga with its wings spread to dry. There are beautifully manicured golf courses, long expanses of beach, any type of restaurant you can think of,  horseback…

BLURB:

In the Roaring Twenties…

A former Hello Girl during WWI, widowed Ariel Pennybaker served her country proudly. She now carries on her late husband’s legacy…a home for the many returning, injured soldiers.

With her year of mourning nearly at an end, she’s had enough of her self-imposed celibacy. It’s time to get back in the game.

A chance meeting with a handsome WWI aviator has her imagining thoroughly naughty thoughts. When a second man walks into her life, her naughty thoughts turn downright decadent. What better way to fulfill her fantasies than by sharing both men’s beds.

As tempting as the idea is, Ariel has a huge secret, one she must protect at all costs. And, it’s possible one or both of her lovers is not what he seems.

Excerpt:

“Retired or not, I see you still possess that infamous flyboy charm.”

He shrugged, the lift of his shoulders drawing her attention to their width and the way he held himself.

“Charming beautiful women was part of basic training,” he quipped. “Right up there with learning how to fly an airplane.”MediaKit_BookCover_TheMysteriousMrsPennybaker

His cheeky answer set her senses on alert. “I would think the flight instruction to be far more important than lessons on charm and seduction.”

“When you get right down to it, they’re very similar. It takes finesse to handle the throttle of a plane. You have to know exactly how much pressure to put on the stick, how to maneuver the knobs, and when to let the plane go on its own.”

The smooth tenor of his voice ratcheted her heart rate up yet another notch. “Really?” she said, her breath catching in her throat.

“There’s that one moment…when the plane is hanging there in the sky. You’ve given her all the encouragement she can take, urged her as far as she can go without breaking. Then, at just the right moment, she bursts forth with a second wind, lurches forward, and bounds unfettered across the bright blue sky.”

The sudden urge to fan herself had her clenching her hands into fists and pressing them to her sides. “It must be exciting…the flying, I mean.”

“As I said, not that different from seducing a woman. Both take a light touch at first—a gentle stroke until they’re primed. Followed by a more commanding hold, just before they reach the pinnacle of their endurance.”

A low groan escaped her throat, drawing his outright laugh.

“You make flying sound a lot like copulation, Major. Surely, when you were up in the air defeating our enemies, your attention was on something other than carnal activities.”

He leaned forward until his mouth hovered scant millimeters from her ear. His warm breath fanned over her cheek. “It’s all about a successful ending, Mrs. Pennybaker. Nothing prepares you for the climax of a good dogfight or the climax of a purely sexual encounter. They should both take your breath away.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

MediaKit_AuthorPhoto_TheMysteriousMrsPennybakerLike most authors, Nancy Fraser began writing at an early age, usually on the walls and with crayons or, heaven forbid, permanent markers. Her love of writing often made her the English teacher’s pet, which, of course, resulted in a whole lot of teasing. Still, it was worth it.

Published in multiple genres, Nancy currently writes for four publishers. She has published twenty-two books in both full-length and novella format. Nancy is currently working on a second fairy tale for Decadent Publishing.

When not writing (which is almost never), Nancy dotes on her five beautiful grandchildren and looks forward to traveling and reading when time permits. Nancy lives in Atlantic Canada where she enjoys the relaxed pace and colorful people.

red lips with lipstickI started a new novel called Royal Secrets and have about 15,000 words on it.  The characters are a prince and the daughter of an ambassador, their loves, and trials.  I don’t know who I will send it to yet, probably The Wild Rose Press or Class Act Books.  A friend wants me to send it to CAB.  Decisions, decisions!  But first I have to finish it!  I was writing it for Vasko Books, but the editor said having a prince in the story wasn’t working for her.  After that, I just kind of ran out of steam.  I’ll get going on it again soon I’m sure.

Here is the first paragraph:

Fashion—and elegance—are more than the clothes you wear. They are a lifestyle.

Virginia McDonald had learned that lesson from a man…a beautiful man of class and style…a worldly man born of royalty that, along with his good looks, had vaulted him immediately into the eye of the media and fame.  Long before she met him, she’d seen, even sought, photos and news of Abelard Alexander Leandres, everything a prince should be.

GamblersChoice_w9208_750Take a look at this beautiful new cover for Linda Nightingale’s upcoming release from The Wild Rose Press.  Gambler’s Choice is about the equine circles of showing and eventing.  It’s a romantic suspense with a gothic flavor.  Debbie Taylor created this cover.
