I’m thrilled to welcome a talented author and a wonderful friend, Jannine Gallant
Quirky facts about Jannine…
1…What is one word you would use to describe yourself? What is one word you think others might use to describe you?
I’m painfully organized. Not having all my ducks in a row makes me crazy. Others call me stubborn. (My husband has been known to say dumb-stubborn!) I don’t like to give up—or give in.
2…If you were stranded on a deserted island and you could have 3 (inanimate) objects, what would they be?
My laptop with endless battery life. (Not writing isn’t an option!) A pantry full of non-perishables. (Eating creepy-crawlies also isn’t an option!) Sunscreen. (Because I’m practical that way.)
3…What celebrity would you most like to be stranded on an island with?
While we’re still stranded, I’ll add Josh Holloway to my list. After all, he was Lost on an island, so he’d have some basic survival skills, right? Not to mention he’s hot (fanning myself with a palm frond), and this is a fantasy…
Quirky facts about her book…
1…What do you want readers to come away with after they read Every Move She Makes?
I want them to close the book (or click off their reader) and say, “Wow, that was great! I can’t believe I stayed up until two in the morning to find out who the stalker was. When’s the next book in the series coming out?” Basically, I just want readers to be entertained.
2…What is the most difficult thing about writing a romantic suspense book?
Keeping it real! With each book, I swear I’ll never put another cop in a story. They have procedures I know nothing about. Thankfully, my CP asks her husband or son to straighten out the details I’ve massacred. Because let’s face it, you can’t write suspense without bringing in the authorities at some point. Keeps me on my toes. As for the crazy bad guys, apparently I have no problem thinking like a psycho. Hmm, something new to worry about! LOL
3…What actors would you like in the main roles if your book were made into a movie?
This one’s easy. Ben Affleck is Kane. No question about it. Rugged action hero who is totally hot! Perfect.
For Rachel, I’ll have to go with Natalie Portman. She has the auburn hair and the right “look.” Now where are those producers…
Thank you, Jannine…I enjoyed your interview. (By the way, I’m totally with you on Josh Holloway. Not so much with Ben Affleck. He’s talented, and nice-looking. Oddly, I’ve just never found him sexy. Him and Ryan Gosling. Those are two guys I just don’t ‘get’ as far as their appeal.)
Now, readers, take a look at her fabulous new release…
No matter where she goes, he knows her every move…
Long ago, Rachel Carpenter was a glamorous soap star. She gave it all up to move to Napa Valley with her daughters to open a bookstore near her family vineyard. Her life is safe and dependable, until she encounters Kane Lafferty at a wilderness camp in the rugged High Sierra. A burned-out police detective struggling with his own demons, Kane is instantly attracted to Rachel. And like Rachel, he isn’t sure if he’s ready to open his heart. But everything is about to change…
Someone is watching from the darkness. A fanatic obsessed with Rachel for years has decided to claim what he believes is his. It will be up to Kane to not only protect his new love and her family, but to uncover the identity of the stalker before it’s too late for all of them…
Rachel curled up against him. “Kane?”
“Yes.” Turning on his side, he stroked the hair away from her face.
“Will that man come after me again?”
His hand stilled. He wouldn’t sugarcoat the truth. “More than likely he will. Psychos who are fixated the way this one seems to be usually don’t give up until they’re caught.”
He pulled her tight against him. “It’s okay to be worried. It’ll make you cautious.” He pressed a hand to the soft curve of her breast. “Know in your heart I won’t let anything happen to you. I’ll keep you safe. You can count on it.”
She hugged his hand against her. “Thank you.”
His chest tightened with emotion. “Go back to sleep.”
With Rachel in his arms, he finally let his guard down to relax into oblivion.
