Q & A with Jayne Fresina...and a giveaway!

1. Tell us about your newest release . SEDUCING THE BEAST is an Elizabethan version of “Beauty and the Beast”. It’s a light-hearted romance of mistaken identities and about two stubborn people learning to cross the class divide. I think it’s a great love story. I had a lot of fun writing it. Learn more about how to purchase it here. 2. Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene in the story? It’s difficult to choose just one! I would have to say the point where Maddie (the heroine) finally manages to pierce the Beast’s hardened heart and makes him realize that he’s fallen for her. I won’t give too much away, but there is a small food fight involved, followed by a steamy love scene. Poor Maddie has been trying so hard, up to that point, to get through his arrogant mask. Finally the balance shifts in her favor. 3. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? I’ve always loved books and stories. I started writing them in my head when I was quite young, but

Hot August Nights

After a rather cool spring here that lingered into the summer, it's finally gotten hot. I don't know about most people, but when it's hot out, it's almost perfect to stay inside where it's cool and read. It's too hot to do much outdoors when the weather is inching toward 100 degrees. I can remember growing up we'd go to movies in the evening and aftewards hit the drive innfor ice cream. Ahh...the good old days! I just recently finished reading Carly Phillips' SERENDIPITY for review and really enjoyed it. Another of my favorite reads this summer was HEAT WAVES by Susan Lyons. And for quick and fun reads, there's always the Harlequin Desires. Rarely do I find a dud in them. I read a lot, mostly for review, but sometimes they tend to blend together. Yet, when I see the blurb, I remember them and some of my favorite scenes. So, now you know what I've been reading, tell us about yours. What are you reading...have read...or plan to read soon?
