1. Cotton or Silk?
I’m a combination of both. I plot first but when my muse dictates a twist or turn, I go with the flow. I’m a planner who has learned that some of the best things in life come as a surprise, like my twins.
I work primarily at a square wooden table in the middle of my kitchen. Since I homeschool, my younger daughters do their schoolwork at the table as well. This way I’m available for questions as needed. On rare occasions, I’ll work at a small desk in my bedroom when I need quiet, not that I ever find absolute silence in my house with three kids, a husband and a dog.
That’s a tough question to answer. I’m a voracious reader and love all kinds of books. Tom Clancy is one of my favorite authors, but I also enjoy Nora Roberts, Johanna Lindsey and John Jakes. The one thing they all share is the ability to create an entertaining story and bring their characters to life.
7. Favorite food –
Potatoes are my favorite food. You can bake them, mash them, fry them and even make soup from them. Ice cream is a close second.
10. What’s next for you?
Former Navy SEAL turned undercover operative, Chase Romero thinks his boss is overreacting when he orders Chase to small town America to protect Angela. But he changes his mind when her home is burglarized and “accidents” begin to happen. The real question becomes, how can he keep her safe if he keeps tripping over his own heart?
When I closed this book, I couldn’t decide how I was going to talk about it. This book is a romantic suspense with some hilarious moments thrown in and there were parts of the book that were laugh out loud funny for me. At times with Angela, I kept picturing Ben Afleck as the young Jack Ryan. (Worship Jack Ryan) This is good thing…
When Angela goes home to handle her dad’s affairs after he suddenly dies in Boston, things just don’t seem to add up for her. Why would a reasonable healthy man drop dead? What was he protecting that would cause his sudden death? Good questions for Angela to ask but when she starts asking, the “accidents” start happen to her, she starts questioning every thing in her past. She decides to investigate her dad’s death and that lands in her in nothing but trouble.
Enter Chase. Chase’s boss just so happens to be Angela’s godfather and has ordered Chase to protect her. Chase is one of those hero’s that just grabs you from the start and doesn’t let go. He will do anything to protect the woman he is beginning to fall in love with and won’t admit it. Trying to keep Angela from harm, chasing the bad guys and dealing with his boss keep Chase busy but makes him think about his life and what he wants out of it.
I loved this book from the start. Angela is smart, sexy, resourceful and a raw newbie when it comes to field work for the FBI. She usually sits at a desk so being chased, shooting someone and having a partner is a somewhat confusing thing for her. Factor in falling in love with her protector and dealing with family secrets, it would make any one’s head spin. Not our Angela. She plunges forward and with the help of her friends and Chase, she becomes stronger and more sure of what she really wants out of life. Chase has some life issues to deal with too. In love with Angela, he knows that the life he had led is not one way for Angela.
I didn’t see the twist at end and it was a great surprise. The secondary characters that were introduced were great and I can’t wait for Sean’s story.
I highly recommend Angel on Fire for anyone that likes a fast paced, sexy romantic suspense story. I can’t wait for more of this series and to see what happens to Angela’s two friends and Sean.
4 1/2 Harlie’s and a recommended read
