– Winter, welcome back to Land of Books. Tell us about your new release Arrogant Playboy?
Arrogant Playboy is the third book in my ‘Arrogant’ series. The hero, Beckham King, is a former FLDS lost boy who moved to New York City, changed his name, and opted for a self-indulgent lifestyle. In the opening scene, he’s just ended a one-night stand with a woman, Odessa Russo, who is sort of an anomaly to him. Normally he’s the love ’em and leave ’em type, but she piques his interest. That doesn’t happen often, if ever. So he pursues her, much to her dismay, and she resists him as best she can, but a handful of unforeseen circumstances throws them together in ways neither of them could’ve ever anticipated.

– It’s a book about love and second chances in the context of family and community.
Ami and Beck would rather forget the past, but this Christmas of love is one to remember.
Amaryllis “Ami” Bloom’s cheerful smile greets everyone in Good Hope, Wisconsin. But her merry facade hides a dark secret she won’t ever forget. Still, she throws herself into celebrating Christmas—and convinces her handsome, and stubborn, new neighbor to join her.
Beckett Cross, however, is determined not to celebrate the holidays. He moved to Good Hope to leave behind reminders of how he’d had it all…and lost everything. But it’s hard to resist adorable Ami, the designated keeper of the small town’s holiday traditions, when she asks for help with the Twelve Nights celebrations. And Ami has a hard time resisting Beck’s soft Southern drawl and gentle eyes. Will a Christmas miracle give them a second chance at love and the hope to heal both of their hearts for good?

JAMIE BECK: ACCIDENTALLY HERS IS FILLED WITH ETHICAL AND MORAL DILEMMAS

This week Land of Books continues new interviews series with our former guests. This time Jamie Beck is returning with her new novel Accidentally Hers. The book hit the market on October 6 and as expected matched the positive feedback (av. 4.3 Amazon stars!) from her other two releases Worth the Wait and In The Cards.
If you missed the first interview with Jamie Beck you may check it here. It’s time for our second (and hopefully not the last one) meeting with the promising romance author.

jamie_beck

– Jamie, welcome back to Land of Books, what the readers will find in your new novel Accidentally Hers?
– Thank you for having me again!
To answer your first question, Accidentally Hers is the first book in the Sterling Canyon series, which is set in a fictional Rocky Mountain ski town based on Telluride, Colorado.
In this first book, I hope readers will find a complex story filled with legal, ethical, and moral dilemmas. There are no easy answers or resolutions for either Grey or Avery. I’ve put Avery in a particularly sticky situation where, no matter what she chooses, someone she cares about (or who is counting on her) will end up hurt. Readers will also meet (and fall for) Grey Lowell, the extreme skier with a heart of gold. I love him.
The secondary characters in this book will eventually get their own books as well (Secretly Hers is due out in July, 2016).

kian

– Tijan, welcome back to Land of Books. What the readers will find in your fresh release Kian?
– I’m hoping they’ll find a new and unique book that they’ll love! Kian‘s book is different than I’ve written before. The inspiration hit me when I was watching a show where the girl had a stalker. I didn’t want to go that route, but the guy was super sexy and that appealed to me. 🙂 Honestly, I tried writing Fallen Crest University instead of Kian, but the FC characters weren’t speaking to me so I decided not to fight it and I just went with Kian‘s book. I absolutely loved writing it.
