Savannah Mason is a career minded journalist who spends long hours at work, hoping to take the spot as anchor. She continues to fight for independence and refuses to allow her demanding father to take control of her life, despite his wish for her to take over his surgical practice. On her darkest day twelve years ago, she agreed to give her baby up for adoption. On her daughter’s birthday a chance encounter gives Savannah an opportunity to explore a corner of her heart she thought was lost forever.

Rob Sinclair a renowned surgeon and NY Times best-selling author has a new release and needs a promo spot on the television show, The News Stop.

The last thing Savannah wants is a relationship, especially one with a divorced, doctor who happens to have two small children

When Savannah gets to conduct the interview over the senior reporter, a door opens to her future. However, first she must face the unsettled issues in her life, before she is free to accept love. A man, who seems all wrong for her, slowly weaves himself into her heart. Can he accept her when he learns about her past?

Rob’s commitment to climb the ladder of success, keeps him on the road for days at a time.  How will he ever be able to trust another woman?

 Savannah and Rob’s strong attraction is undeniable as they journey to a place where honesty and the power of forgiveness, can help heal the scars of the past. Will it be enough to allow them another chance for love? 



Questions:

1.      How long have you been an author? I’ve been writing since I was a young girl, but started writing romance ten years ago.

2.      What is your favourite genre? I love contemporary romance. I also enjoy paranormal romance.

3.      If someone hasn't read any of your work, what book would you recommend they start with and why? I’d recommend they start with Savannah’s Journey. It’s one of my favorite stories. I’m very proud of the way it turned out.

4.      What is the biggest surprise you’ve discovered about the writing process? It’s amazing how much time you have to spend on promo. Between blog tours, interviews, release parties, blog hops, guest spots, I have to fit in time to writing new material. I wouldn’t change a thing. Being an author is fantastic.

5.      Can you tell us about one of your current works in progress? I’m currently working on book 2 in the City Lights Series.  Perfect For Her.

6.      Name one thing readers would be surprised to know about you. I’m a grandmother of three adorable boys.  

7.      Name your top three writing goals? I’d love to finish my latest work in progress by the end of August. I’d love to be able to touch the hearts of my readers with my stories. Okay, I’d like to be a NY Times bestselling author.

8.      Fun Questions -

1.      If you had a warning label, what would it say? High energy alert!

2.      If you had the chance to meet one of your characters privately, who would it be and what would you do? I’d love to meet Dr. Rob Sinclair from Savannah’s Journey. I’d love to hear more about his writing, since he is already a NY Times best-selling author. His first book One Heart soared to the top of the list soon after it hit the shelves.

3.      What is the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done? I touched Jon Bon Jovi’s leg at a concert. lol

**Excerpt****

She got up and slowly moved toward him. Her chest tightened with each step. As she approached him and admired his broad shoulders, it dawned on her he could be a candidate for People’s sexiest man alive. Control yourself.
“I’m happy here,” she admitted. “I love it when the morning light shines on the water and it mimics fine pieces of crystal.”
Rob slowly approached her. His gaze fixed on her, sent shivers from head to toe. Afraid of what might happen next, she turned away. They were too close for comfort. An electric energy surged between them. Before she could stop him, Rob reached for her and pulled her up against his chest. “You’re an amazing woman, Savannah.” His lips met hers and he cradled her head in his hands as if she was a precious jewel. It all happened so quickly, she didn’t have time to react. The warmth of his touch sent waves of heat down her stomach and in between her legs as the world stood still. When Rob’s hands moved slowly across her back, it took her to a level of arousal she never expected. She found herself spellbound by the feel of his rock hard body pressed up against her chest. All of the emotions she’d kept inside emerged when Rob held her tight. When they finally parted, she stood frozen in shock with her heart pounding and her ears ringing.
His expression made him look as if he broke the law with his eyes practically popping out of his head. He quickly took a step back. “I don’t know what to say. I’m so sorry for my rude behavior.”
“You weren’t rude. I didn’t stop you.”
