Sadie Howard never dates a guy more than once-but Fate has other plans for her when it comes to Aiden Downey, the one that got away. Aiden loved her, left her, and broke her heart. Yet suddenly she's bumping into him at every turn, driven to distraction by his wicked grin and rock-hard body. Now she can't resist finishing what they started-as long as she doesn't let herself fall in love . . .
Aiden Downey threw away the best thing he ever had when he let Sadie go, and now he's determined to win back the woman he's always wanted. Sadie agrees to let him into her life-and her bed-as long as there are no strings attached. But Aiden's not about to make the same mistake again. Can he convince her to take a second chance on a once-in-a-lifetime love?

You had me at snickerdoodle. Ask away!
If you enjoy a sexy, rock-hard-bodied, funny, motorcycle-riding, tattooed hero who sacrificed all he had to care for his family and is so blindly in love with the heroine that he’ll do anything to get her to forgive him for dumping her, then Hard to Handle is the book for you.
- Aiden Downey’s looks are based on Charlie Hunnam’s character Jax on Sons of Anarchy. When I saw that Charlie was going to be Christian Grey I was all, “Aiden!” LOL. I’m hardly able to separate the real-life person and Aiden in my head anymore.
- Being true to Sadie meant keeping her willful and stubborn, and yes, a little bit self-focused. But I love the way Aiden “gets” her. Sadie is my love letter to strong-willed, imperfect women everywhere.
- There’s a scene in the book where Aiden is in Shane’s office eyeing “something” (no spoilers!) on Shane’s shelf. It’s a total wink and nod to the first book Tempting the Billionaire, and, I hope, a fun little moment for the readers who get it.
Oh I can't wait to read that scene. Now, was there a moment where you just nearly threw yourself to the ground in a *girly swoon* over Aiden? What about Sadie? How'd she win your heart?
I am STILL on the ground over Aiden. He’s so swoon-worthy, and loves Sadie with a transparency and honesty that is unrivaled.
Sadie won my heart the day she asked Crickitt in Tempting the Billionaire if Crickitt’s ex-husband “lost his balls again”. Sadie is one tough cookie (unlike these snickerdoodle muffins, which are delicious by the way), and I admire how in charge of herself she is.
Aw, thanks! I've been dying for Aiden's story for a while now and can't wait to go all girly swoony over him. lol Sadie sounds pretty awesome too!
So, speaking of sexy heroes...sexiest thing a hero can do? Admit he screwed up, apologize, and make it right.
Writing! I think up new characters all the time and I spend just about every moment alone I have doing it.
Favorite non-writing things to do? Watch violent television shows: Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, True Blood…I could go on and on. *snort*
Favorite Man Candy? Charlie Hunnam, Henry Cavill (and the rest of my Man Candy can be found on my Pinterest boards: http://www.pinterest.com/lemmony)
