For Lexi Dean, burning down her kitchen was disaster enough. Agreeing to move in next door with her totally off-limits best friend, Matt Freeman, until her house is livable again?
They’ve always been close, but this is ridiculous. If she’s not bumping into him at the refrigerator, he’s at the front door giving her date the third degree. And slipping between his borrowed sheets? That’s about as distracting as listening to his shower run, because suddenly all she can think about is rivulets of water cascading down is spectacular body—the one he seems to be going out of his way to make sure she notices.
Not that it matters. He can flaunt his firefighter abs around her all he wants. They already share everything—their jobs, their friends, their backyard, even their dog—and that means only one thing: Lexi is not going to risk losing any of it by dipping a single toe in the temptation that is Matt Freeman.
Lexi may not know how to handle a fire extinguisher, but this is one fire that just might burn them both if they’re not careful…
- What is on your nightstand?
I use a small shelf one of my kids made on the wall by my bed, and it’s stacked with books, a battery pack for my cell phone so I can read without having to reach the wall charger, and a remote for the a/c because I like sleeping in a refrigerator, or so my husband has claimed.
- What author would you totally fan?
The summer I turned 15, I happened upon a little place in Spain called Botin, which has been a landmark of Madrid since 1725. The inside was kind of a brick cave, somehow elegant, yet with a rustic quality that boasted of its history as readily as its claim that Hemingway ate there. Now, at the time I didn’t know that much about Hemingway, but I connected with the place so deeply that I remedied that. Not only did the guy write and drink, but he taught one of his cats to drink whiskey with him. And that, dear readers, was the first time I thought an author was awesome. 😀
- What makes you cringe?
Poor grammar. I don’t mean the occasional mistake or typo. I don’t even necessarily mean the average person who just doesn’t care, or those who share otherwise awesome memes with grammatical errors. But when I see posts or emails riddled with mistakes, in particular those by authors, editors, or other professionals or those presented in a professional capacity, I cringe. I literally cringe. I have, in fact, unfollowed people over this.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I want to plot. I wish I could plot. But alas, I am terrible at plotting. However, I excel at meandering about nothing when I’m not following some kind of synopsis, so I really try to have an outline. That said, some of my best scenes and moments have come from a moment of clarity that couldn’t possibly have been planned, because again, I can’t to save my life seem to plot brilliant things. 😀
- Is there a word you love to use?
I adopt new ones for every book I write. I don’t know how I miss them as I’m writing, but at some point in editing I realize they’re there and upon that discovery I am horrified by the number of times they’re in my file. So yes, there are words I love to use and in every single instance I absolutely wish I wouldn’t, lol.
Also, if you have any pictures of your pet you would like to share, please attach them. My readers love animals!
I have included a photo of our family mutt, who is so determined not to look at me when I have a camera in my hand that I am absolutely convinced it’s intentional.
USA Today bestselling author Sarah Ballance and her husband of what he calls “many long, long years” live on the mid-Atlantic coast with their six young children, all of whom are perfectly adorable when they’re asleep. She never dreamed of becoming an author, but as a homeschooling mom, she often jokes she writes fiction because if she wants anyone to listen to her, she has to make them up. (As it turns out, her characters aren’t much better than the kids). When not buried under piles of laundry, she may be found adrift in the Atlantic (preferably on a boat) or seeking that ever-elusive perfect writing spot where not even the kids can find her.
She loves creating unforgettable stories while putting her characters through an unkind amount of torture—a hobby that has nothing to do with living with six children. (Really.) Though she adores sexy contemporary romance, Sarah writes in many genres including historical and ghostly supernatural romance and romantic suspense. Her ever-growing roster of releases may be found on Amazon , Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, Google Books, and ENTANGLED PUBLISHING.
1 winner will receive a $15 Amazon GC, International.
