Bethany Pruitt has been judged for her mother's actions ever since she could remember. When she returns from college in Miami to Frankin Parks, her hometown, for the summer, she doesn't expect to find the only home she's known to be motherless and empty. By another turn of events, she decides to accept an invitation from her uncle to stay at Paloma's Edge, Florida.
Chase Lovell lives for the present and doesn't think about much else. When he goes to see his coach for a meeting, a female standing at the end of a long bus line at his college sparks his interest and earns his respect. Intent on approaching her, he misses his chance, and assumes that he'll never see her again. When Pierce, his best friend, asks him to pick up his cousin, Bethany, from Franklin Parks and drive her to Paloma's Edge, he can't deny that she is the person he's been drawn to.
But will Chase do whatever it takes to keep the girl he's found again?
Q & A
1. Tell me in three succinct descriptions who you are.
1) cat and dog lover, 2) daughter and twin sister 3) and as creepy as it sounds, I am a major people watcher
2. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I love to walk. Now that it’s summer and my schedule isn’t as hectic as it used to be, I walk thirty or forty blocks. And I don’t like to stop.
3. What chore do you dislike doing?
Laundry. As a kid and teenager, I’d always ended up doing everyone’s laundry.
4. What is your favorite time of the day?
I love mornings; I am more alert and energetic than any other time of the day or night.
5. What’s your least favorite mode of transportation?
Trains. It can be congested and people are at their worst when they don’t have space to move their arms and legs.
6. What sound do you love?
I love the sound of my infant cousins soundly asleep.
7. What sound do you dislike?
I dislike hearing constant blaring horns and loud arguments outside of my window.
8. Who is your favorite author or favorite book?
There are so many fantastic authors and books that I love. I repeat: so many fantastic authors and books that I love. With that stated, I LOVE J.R Ward and can’t wait to get to Lover At Last. I need a weekend away from everything so that I can devote hours to the latest Blackdagger Brotherhood novel as is required. For anyone who doesn’t like paranormal or urban fantasy like I hadn’t years ago, I really believe that her character-driven stories and swoon-worthy alpha males can make anyone at least like vamps.
9. What inspired you to write Drawn To You?
Writing Beth and Chase’s story enabled me to truly escape into their worlds and de-stress. I hope others enjoy reading it as much I enjoyed writing it.
