Last December we looked at Darlene Fredette’s One Sweet Christmas and I’m so pleased she dropped in again today to chat for a bit and share her newest, Law of Attraction.

Y’all I LOVE this cover and can’t wait to get a chance to read the book!

*****

What do you like best about writing romances?

You get to create a fantasy world with an amazing setting where two characters fall in love. That’s the best type of story to write.

What is your favorite romantic story (movie/book, fact/fiction)?

I love romantic movies, but the one that always stick out in my head is The Notebook.  The characters were wonderful, the plot was captivating, and the ending took my breath away.

Which of your characters/books was the most fun to write?

The heroine I’m writing now in ‘Hershey’s Choice’ is turning out to be my favorite. Her name is Britt Wells.  She’s sassy, crazy, and fun.

If you weren’t a writer and could be anything you want, what would it be?

My daughter tells me I’d be a great teacher, and that’s what I wanted to be when I was younger, so I’d be a teacher.

Blurb:

Determined to win back Christina, Steven will take the law into his own hands…even if he has to play dirty.

Lawyer Christina Crawford has a successful career and stable financial future, but is it enough?  Her world is disrupted when a routine divorce case means working with a man she never expected—or wanted—to see again.  During their first meeting, she can’t deny a connection still exists.  Her head warns her to run, but her heart yearns to stay.

Steven Mitchell is ruthless in the court room, but outside those doors, his easy charm, good looks and unlimited stream of female companions gives him an unscrupulous reputation.  Six years ago Christina saw beyond his façade, but the emotions she evoked scared him and he pushed her away.  Now he wants a second chance and he is determined to get her back…even if he has to play dirty.

Excerpt:

Heart pounding in her chest, she closed the door behind him. Wearing her best business face, she returned to this disastrous meeting and sat. Christina drew in a deep breath, and a measure of control was restored. She picked up her pen and flipped open the case file. “So, according to these documents, your client is contesting the divorce?”

Steven reached across the table and snatched the pen from her hand. “What’s the rush, Christina? We haven’t seen each other in years. There’s a lot of catching up to do.”

She clenched her teeth together, barely parting her lips as she spoke. “We have nothing but this case to discuss.”

“Come on, don’t be like that.” He leaned back in his chair, frowning. “You’re not still holding a grudge, are you? What happened was so long ago. I hoped we could start fresh, as friends.”

“Are you freaking serious?” She glared an icy stare. Forget a slow death by high heel. She’d get more pleasure strangling him with her bare hands. “You accused me of misconduct, had me fired, and now you want to be friends?” Her heart thumped a rapid beat in her ears.  “You’re out of your mind.”
