AFTH w/ Rachel Lacey-- Naughty or Nice - Why Choose Just One?!

Joining us today is Rachel Lacey! She's a very new to me author but totally charmed me with her latest release, Run to You. Gah, it was just so good, yall! The hero had me in a total swoon and the heroine was lovely. I was totally hooked on the secondary characters, too. Oh and she's a Carolina author and I always love featuring authors from my state. Double win!

She's taking over for the next little while so yall give her some good comment love and have fun! ~anna

Naughty or Nice - Why Choose Just One?!

When it comes to romance heroes, I like to enjoy a side of naughty with my nice hero. Or is it a side of nice with my naughty hero? To me, the best romance heroes are a combination of both.


Take for example Ethan Hunter, the hero of my book, RUN TO YOU. Ethan's bad boy reputation would definitely land him on Santa's "Naughty List." As a teenager, he caused more than his fair share of trouble around town. These days, he's known as a ladies' man - always up for a good time, but don't expect him to get serious (until he falls head over heels for new-in-town Gabby Winters, of course).


Despite his reputation, Ethan might just land on the "Nice List." He's completely devoted to his beloved grandmother Dixie, who raised him after he lost his parents. He even enters into a fake relationship with Gabby to fulfill his grandma's dying wish. Oh, and did I mention he has a couple of Olympic gold medals in his closet?

I have a free short story available right now called ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU, featuring Ethan and Gabby from RUN TO YOU as they celebrate their first Christmas together. Grab your free copy here

And I'm including Gabby's snow cream recipe from ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU in case you'd like to try it out yourself this winter. It's delicious - trust me. Just be sure to avoid the yellow snow! *wink* If you can, set a large bowl outside when it starts to snow, and let Mother Nature fill it for you!


Ingredients:
  • 4 cups snow
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix it all together - either by hand or in the blender - and serve immediately. Optional extra step: add sprinkles. Enjoy!

Happy Holidays, everyone!

                                              

Moments after meeting the most gorgeous guy ever, Gabby Winters promptly gets stung by a zillion yellowjackets and falls-not gracefully-into a stream. Yup, Ethan Hunter is trouble with a capital "hot," and Gabby definitely needs to keep her distance. Except in the small town of Haven, there's nowhere to hide from Ethan's sexy, infectious grin . . . and all the residents are conspiring against her.

At the center of the town's matchmaking is Ethan's grandmother, who's convinced their relationship is a done deal. Rather than break her heart, Gabby and Ethan find themselves cornered into pretending to be falling in love. The problem: there's serious sizzling attraction between them. And if this charade continues, they won't fool just the entire town - they might fool themselves too . . .


I grew up with a passion for reading and an unquenchable need to write stories of my own. As a girl, my journals and, later on, computers were always filled with snippets of stories and dialogue. These characters got inside my head and wouldn’t rest until I’d written them down. The number one item on my bucket list has always been to publish a novel, and I am beyond thrilled that my dream came true with Unleashed.
The first thirty years of my life led me around the globe on some amazing adventures. I’ve been climbed by a monkey on a mountain in Japan, gone scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, and camped out overnight in New York City for a chance to be an extra in a movie. These days, I’m a work-at-home mom with a seven-year-old son, and the majority of my adventures take place in the books I write. I currently live in warm and sunny North Carolina with my husband, our son, and a variety of rescue pets.
