I entertain naked people for a living. No, not THAT kind of entertainment. I own a nudist resort. I'm not a nudist, but Val Silva is. And he's a human supernova sleeping in the room next door.

The man is tall, gorgeous, tattooed, and a shameless exhibitionist. As the Brazilian bad boy of the international football world, he's as famous for his sextape as for his talent on the field. Oh, did I mention he walks around naked ALL the time? A girl only has so much willpower. Maybe we can have a little fun… as long as his tabloid past doesn't mess with my quiet life.

Eve Holt is the sexiest woman I've ever seen, in those short-shorts and tank tops that make me wonder what she's hiding underneath. Most women love my wild side, but Eve thinks I'm trouble with a capital T. Okay, she might have a point there. But I always get what I want, and I want her. I didn't lead my team to Olympic gold by giving up. That's one fact about me Eve is about to learn.



Natural Passion is the first book in a brand-new trilogy of romantic comedies from Anna Durand, the bestselling author of the Hot Scots series.

Interview:

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

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about the NATURAL PASSION and the characters?

Natural Passion takes place at a naturist (nudist) resort in Oregon, and the guests are a cast of fun and kind of wacky characters who have become like a family. The same people often come back year after year. The heroine, Eve Holt, owns the resort but is not a nudist. Her newest guest, Val Silva, is a bad boy exhibitionist and a shameless nudist. He's also super hot!

What are you working on now?

I'm always working on multiple stories. I'm writing Natural Impulse, the second book in the Au Naturel series, as well as Irresistible in a Kilt, the eighth book my Hot Scots series (contemporary romance). There's also Obsidian Hunger, the fourth book in my Undercover Elementals series of paranormal romances.

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

No, not really. I mean, they're mostly nudists. 😊 I once lived near a nudist camp, but I never met the people who stayed there. Natural Passion was partly inspired by that nudist camp.

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

I loved writing Val. He's such an unabashed nudist and not at all ashamed of his past and the sex tape that made him an internet sensation. His wild side drives a lot of the humor and a lot of the steamy scenes in the book. I can't say I have an unfavorite character. I enjoy writing all of them, even the rotten ones.

What is your favorite passages/scenes in NATURAL PASSION?

One of my favorite scenes is when Val cooks a big Brazilian breakfast for Eve. I also love the comedy scenes, one of which involves a porcupine. I'll leave that one to your imagination!

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

I researched the nudist lifestyle so I could write believable nudist characters. I learned there are rules to nudism, which I mention in the book, and that nudists invented their own tennis-inspired game called miniten. Some people prefer to be called naturists, and I take advantage of the possible misinterpretations of that term for one of my favorite funny scenes in this book.

Who is your ultimate book boyfriend?

I will always adore Adam Black from The Immortal Highlander. He's so funny and so hot!

What inspired you to write romance?

One day I realized all my favorite books had one thing in common: romance! Whether it's Dean Koontz's Lightning or Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, it's the romance element that makes me love those books. Why not write romance? So I did!

Lightning Round Questions

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

I'm reading Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren.

Twitter or Facebook?

It's hard to choose. I like the brevity of Twitter, but sometimes I want to go a little 
longer and Facebook is better for that.

Favorite Superhero?

Thor. When he looks like Chris Hemsworth.

Favorite TV show?

Lucifer. He's just so naughty and funny!

Sweet or Salty?

Both. Sweet, then salty.

Any Phobias?

Snakes. They're so slithery

Song you can’t get enough of right now?

I love Michael Buble's I Believe in You

2020 Movie you’re most looking forward to?

Not sure what's coming out this year. I've been too busy writing to check on that!


Thanks so much Anna for answering my questions! I can’t wait for everyone to read NATURAL PASSION!


About Anna:


Anna Durand loves romance, men in kilts, and cheesecake. Not always in that order. She slaves away every day writing about sexy people doing sexy things together, with heart and humor and sometimes with suspense. With paranormal stories, she explores the darker side of romance. With contemporary romance, she delves into the emotional side of love and sensuality.

Readers and reviewers have blessed Anna's books with wonderful reviews, giving her a nice glowy feeling that she's doing something right. Her books have become bestsellers on every major retail site, hitting #1 multiple times. The Hot Scots series remains Anna's personal favorite and a favorite among her fans. Who can resist a hunky Scotsman?

Anna also has a master's degree in library science, so naturally, she made Calli in Wicked in a Kilt a librarian too. For twelve years and counting, Anna has run a cataloging services company that creates cataloging-in-publication data for other authors and publishers. And when she's not doing that or writing, you'll find her binging on audiobooks, playing with puppies, or crafting handmade jewelry.
