Adam Morrow is a self-made millionaire. But one night with her could ruin everything

I’ve worked my ass off for what I have, and I’m damn proud of it. I started off with nothing and now I’m filthy rich. Let me tell you, there’s nothing like revenge to help you get your ass in gear. And that’s what I’m taking, with every exclusive resort I opensweet, sweet revengeon her.

Nicole Westmore was my first love. The poor little rich girl stole my heart with her sweet smile, hot body, and irresistible innocence. The summer I worked for her father was the best time of my lifeuntil he drove me away. Even then, I thought Nicole would wait for me. She didn’t.

And so, I decided to get even, opening rival hotels, slowly driving them out of business. The old man is gone now, but Nicole is still running the company that’s about to collapse. All my hard work will soon pay off.

And then I catch sight of her at a wedding, and all those feelings come rushing back--for both of us. Still, she doesn’t know what I’ve doneyetand she seems more than willing. What will one night in her bed hurt? 

Now on to the interview!

Hey Alice!  First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! THE REVENGE GAME sounds AWESOME and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about the THE REVENGE GAME and the characters?

I absolutely adore these characters.  Adam is a man who had to fight to get anything in the world.  Then, when he was between college and business school, he fell in love with little, rich girl, Nicole Westmore.  When her father broke them up, both of them felt the other had betrayed them.  Adam vowed to take Maurice Westmore’s company down.  Only now, Maurice is dead and Nicole is running the company.

Nicole knows she’s way over her head trying to save her father’s company, but she’s not going to give up.  She’s pretty sure her first love, Adam Morrow, is behind the plot to ruin Westmore Hotels, so she has to confront him.  Sure enough, all the old feelings surface, and they become lovers again.  The only problem for their relationship:  she’s right.  Adam’s also her enemy.

What are you working on now?

I just finished the third book in this series, Players’ Pact.  Adam is one of three very wealthy men who’ve given up on love but plan to enjoy themselves with willing partners whenever they can.  The second book is about Grant Howard, a star NFL quarterback.  The third book is about Ryan Stewart, the country’s leading sports doctor with his own television program, and a woman he thought was going to be a one-night stand.

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

Nope.  They all came out of my imagination.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

I loved the main characters, but I have to say the evil stepmother was the most fun to write.  One of Nicole’s stepmothers is Adam’s partner in the plot to take down Nicole’s company.  Vivian is an older woman but very beautiful, and she’s after Adam’s body.  As Adam puts it, she has “the personality of a viper.”

Small part characters are difficult to write because you have to be careful they don’t take over the story.  I named one after my husband, and he was Harold once and Hal another time.

What is your favorite passages/scenes in THE REVENGE GAME?

When Nicole learns that Adam has been in touch with her hated stepmother, Vivian.  His phone rings, and the name Vivian comes up.  Nicole agonizes for a few seconds before she answers and listens.  She’s heartbroken that her suspicions about Adam have been truethat hes behind the plot to ruin her company.  Its especially hurtful because theyve just had a very intense lovemaking encounter.

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

I didn’t do research per se.  I did spend four hours with a critique partner who helped me flesh out the entire plot before I started writing.  I had to write the synopsis before I wrote the book, so she was very helpful.

Who is your ultimate book boyfriend? 

Mr. Rochester of Jane Eyre.  Sigh.

What inspired you to write romance?

All my life I’ve made up stories in my head.  I didn’t realize it at the time, but they were all romances with happy endings.  I have to confess I was too lazy to try to write a book until I got my first computer.  Then, I figured I’d give it a shot.  Romance Writers of America had its national conference near my home that year, and I’ve been writing romance ever since.

Lightning Round Questions

What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

Oh, God, I’m such a nerd.  I’m reading a collection of essays on Race and IQ edited by Ashley Montagu.

What Hogwarts House would the Sorting Hat place you in?

Slytherin.  I adore snakes.  I have a pet corn snake.  Plus, I loved Alan Rickman in absolutely every movie he was in.

Twitter or Facebook?


Favorite Superhero?

Wonder Woman

Favorite TV show?

Does Downton Abbey count?
