I’m Alcie Giordano. I’m the purple-haired, tattooed stand-in mother to my orphaned niece and nephew. I juggle my job as a nurse practitioner, raising my young charges, fending off my mother’s increasingly smothering interference, and a new, intense relationship with the cop who arrested me at my wedding reception. I’ve a healthy fear of commitment, as I’d found my newly-wedded husband screwing another woman just minutes before our first dance ten years ago. But this hasn’t stopped Luca Romano from pursuing me, and it certainly hasn’t stopped me from combining forces with him as we raise our three charges, tangoing our way through this crazy little thing called life.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
One day the notion popped into my head that I should match a heroine who was arrested at her first wedding with the cop who arrested her…several years later, and of course, after her divorce was finalized.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Once I decided on the premise, I looked for names that fit the characters. Once I had the names, the hero and heroine came into very sharp focus.
About the Author:
I write. It’s a sanity saving thing. Living in a sea of testosterone with 1 hubby, 3 sons (1 of whom is mildly autistic), and 1 brother-in-law, the only other females who live with us are the dogs and cat. Is it any wonder I write romance and eat chocolate?
In and around writing, I enjoy adventures with my family, train laundry (Sooner or later it will learn to do itself. Right?), clean my house, feed my family, provide bus service (I sure hope this minivan doesn’t make my butt look fat.), chat with my friends, do crafts, read voraciously, and on the occasions when my loving spouse has abandoned the remote, I watch TV. Sleep is optional. That’s why caffeine was invented.
We recently moved from Big City to Rural Town in the Sierra foothills. Trees, fresh air, blue sky. Oh my. We have enough room for chicken (there was a coop here when we moved in – we’ve filled it with 20+ chickens, including Big Blue, our Blue Cochin rooster. He thinks he’s badass.), we have ducks, 4 turkeys (3 are males!), and a pig named Annie Oinkly. Oh, and 2 desert tortoises we’re fostering, a bunny and fish (which actually belong to my middle son). Life’s good.
