What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Visions of Love is book three in my Arden's Glen Romance series, but can be read as a stand-alone. I knew from the first book in the series (Faith in Love) that I wanted my young psychic medium, Rosalie Alexander, to be further developed and eventually get her own love story. Though she is younger, I knew there was more depth to her than met the eye–and boy, was there! Visions of Love is an age-gap romance with the older doctor, Zade Zampogna, falling head-over-heels for Rosalie in an almost love-at-first-sight kind of way. And she doesn't know what the heck to do with that or him, especially because she's trying to figure out what she wants in life career wise, is dealing with an older brother who is acting suspicious (and overbearing!), and wants nothing more than to leave the small town she was born and raised in. But Zade is persistent (and did I mention…sexy!?) and Rosalie has a hard time ignoring his adorkable pick-up lines and persistent attention. Rosalie is who inspired this book, and I hope you love her as much as I (and Zade) do!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Rosalie was a side character in book one, but as soon as I wrote her, I knew I wanted to expand her story. She is a psychic medium who was born and raised in this small town of Arden's Glen. As you can imagine, that alone might have set her apart, but she is also a mixed-Latina woman who was adopted and raised in a southern Baptist family. Needless to say, she spent most of her life feeling like an outcast and not quite at "home." Dr. Zade Zampogna came to life in the previous book (Proof of Love) when it was discovered he had a one-night stand with that female MC, Dez Wright. He was too sexy and charming to let be just a side piece, though. And since Rosalie has a thing for older men…they seemed like a natural fit. She needed an experience with an older man she could come to love and trust.
Zade parked his car in the underground parking deck and took Rosalie’s hand as they made their way to the old, cage-style elevator. Rosalie backed away, shaking her head. “Uh-uh, mister. I am not getting into that rickety old thing.”
Zade laughed. “You know the building passed inspection, right?”
Her face paled. She’d had a bad experience in a past life that left her afraid of enclosed spaces with no way out, but she wasn’t about to share that on a first date. Nothing made a man run faster than talking about past lives and dead people.
“Can we just take the stairs instead?”
“Sure,” he said, leading them up the six flights of stairs to the penthouse floor. “You know the service elevator was only going to take us to the ground floor, right? We have a real one inside that I use to get to my condo.”
She narrowed her eyes at Zade, her hands on her hips. “You could’ve told me that!”
“It was too fun not to,” he laughed. “Besides, then I got to watch you take the stairs from behind. Wasn’t such a bad deal from my end of things.”
She got into his personal space, coming toe-to-toe with him. She poked him on the chest, playfully. “Not funny,” she said, though her tone was light. “But, well played, doctor.”
Zade caught her hands, linking his fingers with hers as he spun her around. Before she knew what was happening, she was pressed against the door to his condo, their linked hands high above her head. If she thought she’d gotten into his personal space, she’d had nothing on him. She swallowed, her eyes trained on his lips which were just inches from hers, their chests rising and falling together.
Damn he was smooth.
“God, Rosalie. I’ve wanted to kiss you from the moment I met you. You make it so damn hard to take things slow.”
She could reach out so easily and kiss him, giving in to the desire that was washing over her. She tried to ease the tension, afraid if she kissed him, she might not want to stop with just one. “What, no cheesy line this time?” she breathed out.
“Well, kiss me if I’m wrong, but dinosaurs still exist, right?” he said, lowering his mouth even closer.
She laughed, though her pulse was lodged high in her throat as Zade pressed his thigh between her legs. The hell with it, she thought, tossing caution to the wind. She rose on her tiptoes, bridging the distance between them. The anticipation had her closing her eyes, eager for the warmth that would come when their lips finally met.
