A cabin in the mountains.
A chance for a fresh start.
A dropped towel that seals their fate.
Lost and confused, April Simmons has no clue how to turn her life around. When her best friend sends her to a cabin in the mountains for a month, alone, to work on herself, April has no idea that her handsome, yet broody and enigmatic neighbor is country music superstar Carter Hills.
Carter has everything other people would kill for: money, success, and fame. And yet, being at the top has never felt so lonely.
The moment April and Carter meet, sparks fly, but neither is ready to give in to temptation.
Been there. Done that.
But soon, Carter decides April, the colorful and sassy woman living next door, is worth breaking every rule he set for himself years ago, and nothing she’ll do or say will keep him away. The more April resists, the more Carter pulls her in.
Can April trust Carter with her heart, knowing he has the power to shatter it into a million pieces?
Loving Carter Hills is like riding a roller coaster. It’s breathtaking. It’s fast. It’s scary. And it’s a once-in-a-lifetime
When and where do you prefer to write?
Anytime. Anywhere. I’m lucky I don’t need to be sitting in an office to be able to write. Some days, I’ll write in the living room, other days I’ll be in the dining room, or sitting on my bed. I even go in my car if I’m in a creative flow and the words don’t stop pouring and I need to focus.
I can write entre chapters on my phone wherever I am if inspiration strikes.
Do you need peace and quiet when you are writing?
I’d like that, but with four kids running around the house, sometimes peace and quiet isn’t possible! Some days I write late at night just to get a few hours to myself. I’m getting pretty good at blocking background noises that don’t require my full attention.
If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?
I’d like to write a thriller. Something with secret service agents who need to resolve a murder or something dark. I’m not sure I’d be good at this on my own, but maybe with Michael Connelly or David Baldacci as a co-writer, I’d thrive!
In romance, right now, I think it’d be Amy Daws or Jaine Diamond. I like the universes they create. It’s addictive.
Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?
Tricky question. It’s always fun to be the good one, but somehow, being the villain is really multi-dimensional and kinda exciting. It would depend on the story. If the story is great, I’d be all in to play the bad guy.
Who would you like/have liked to interview?
Rob Riggle. I can’t decide if he’s a genius, if he’s funny, or kind of creepy. If one of my books inspires a movie, I want him to be cast in it (after I interview him of course).
Where can I find you when you are reading?
In a comfy chair, in my bed, hiding somewhere, or in the car while we travel. I’d like to read outside more, but four seasons can be a big turn off when it’s freezing or snowing. The hot tub is also a good place, thanks to waterproof devices.
Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?
On a road trip. With my own squad (including our cat and our dog). We love to travel the world in our car and discover small towns most people wouldn’t even bother visiting.
If I’m at home and not running around my children, I’m doing some painting or furniture DIY. Anything creative makes me happy.
What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?
“OMG I can’t believe I wrote this” (jumping around the house). And then my kids jumped around too, and it’s a mad house. Until they beg me to show it to all their friends and I’m like “Listen, it’s not that I don’t want you to. I’m really grateful you’re happy and proud, but the thing is… it’s not suitable for kids. I’m so sorry.”
After kid-friendly explanations and a few hugs, the jumping around starts again.
I give them bookmarks and pens to show around instead.
How do you come up with a title for your book?
Usually, a title pops in my head when I write the first page (sometimes even before). And through the process I go back to it wondering if I still like it, if it still fits. Sometimes it’s a match right from the start, and sometimes I change it a dozen times before finding the one that’s perfect. Or going back to the first one I picked.
How do you pick a cover for your book?
It must be love at first sight. My characters just popped into my head, and then I have to find a picture matching my expectations, which can be harder than writing the book itself. I’m a little picky about it. When I saw the models for Pink and Country for the first time, they matched almost exactly the picture I had in mind, so it had to be them (and the cover designer changed the blonde hair to get the perfect shade of pink April had in my head).
