Today I have a special guest, Aimee Duffy, author of Isle of Sensuality, which released from Beachwalk Press today. But first let's see what her book is about.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Who knew being with Mr. Wrong could be so right?
Caitlyn Hart is shooting her first movie, and she doesn't want to screw it up. Still, she's on a deadline and when her co-star, Mr. Hot Shot Campbell, holds filming up, he's immediately on her shit list. But she can't ignore his charms for long or the overpowering want she feels for him. Even though she knows he's her Mr. Wrong, she doesn't mind him being her Mr. Right Now. If only her silly heart would stay immune.
Having been burned once, Jake Campbell doesn't have the capacity to love, but that doesn't mean relationships of a purely sexual nature are off limits. After all, a man has needs. His sexy co-star with fire red hair and a passion to match ignites his own desire and he sets out to convince her a fling is the only way to scratch the proverbial itch. Little did he figure that she'd be the one to penetrate the thick scars on his heart and make him feel.
And now Aimee Duffy.
Firstly, I’d like to give a huge thank you to the Ebook Reviewers for having me here today.
I have to admit that when I was asked to do a guest post, I panicked a little. It’s hard enough coming up with things to natter about on my own blog, how can I think up something amazing for someone else’s? So I put it off for a bit, certain I’d think up something spectacular—verdict’s still out.
When filling out an interview for a site who had reviewed both my books, she asked a question that got me thinking. Why do you write celebrity based shows, is it because you’ve always wanted to be in the spotlight?
The answer is no. I’m shy, would clam up in front of an audience and turn ten shades of red all over, but she is absolutely right. All the books I’ve penned to date star a celebrity of some shape or form. I hadn’t realised this myself until she pointed it out.
The answer probably lies in my gossip magazine addiction. Celebrities’ lives are splashed over the news, readily available and they interest, infuriate, annoy and make me laugh. Maybe I’ve stuck to celebrities for so long because the details of their lives are readily available.
For example, I read about Posh & Beck’s marital issues when Becks decided he wanted to go to a European team, but Posh loved their life in LA and didn’t want to move, but at the same time, she was scared to leave him alone. An idea for a marriage on the rocks story popped into my head and I jotted it down in my ideas book.
So yes, I have written stories featuring one or more celebrity, but I think it’s because their lives are readily available for the pickings. Everything they’re ashamed of is laid bare for the world to see, and the magazines who write about them are my main source of inspiration.
Isle of Sensuality is a story about two actors who have a fling while filming a movie on an island off the coast of Rio. The steam is all theirs ;o)
