Current Release: Delicious Temptation
What's your book about?
The only thing naughtier than a bad boy is a good girl...
Amara Maria Robles is a good girl. So good that she gave up her dreams of becoming a renowned pastry chef to help her parents with their struggling Mexican bakery. Yet her parents reject any changes she suggests, and refuse to sell her mouth-watering confections. Clearly being a good girl isn't paying off. So when her brother's sexy ex-best friend walks into the bakery, Amara's tempted to be very bad indeed...
After a scandal twelve years ago, resident bad boy Eric Valencia has returned to make things right with his family and friends. One glance at Amara and her wicked curves, however, and Eric finds himself thinking about how she’d feel beneath him—something he promised Amara's brother he would never think about, let alone do.
But this bad boy is in deep trouble...because Amara's determined to have her cake, and Eric, too.
What should readers expect from you titles?
Steamy romance stories with lots of emotion and heart.
What's next for you as an author?
Delicious Temptation is the first book in a 3-book series called "Delicious Desires." I'm hoping the next two books will also be released this year.
Getting a book to market often takes a village. Who has helped you on the way?
This book would never have been published, let alone written, without the support of my author friends: Louisa Bacio, Nikki Prince and Elizabeth Scott. They motivated me to finish writing this book after it sat untouched for almost a year. And they've continued to be my biggest cheerleaders and supporters.
Do you feel music has inspired your writing?
Music definitely inspires my writing. I create playlists for every story before I've even written a word. I listen to the playlist on my commute to work so I can keep the story in my mind and I listen to it again while I'm writing. It helps me get into the heads of my characters and helps to block out any background distractions.
What's your everyday life like? Do you write full-time or do you also hold another job?
I have a full-time job in public relations, along with a husband and three kids at home. I basically write when everyone has gone to bed or in little patches over the weekend. If I'm on deadline, then I try to steal words whenever and wherever I can.
Are you an introvert or extrovert?
I'm an introvert who is trying to be more of an extrovert. My whole life I've been known as the "quiet one." I've always preferred listening and observing in a crowd setting. However, since I've been published I've made it a point to do more in-person interactions with fellow authors and readers because I think it will help me become a stronger writer. Plus, it's fun!
Thank you for the opportunity to let everyone learn more about me and my book. I love connecting and hearing from readers. You can find me on Twitter under @theromancechica or on Instagram as sabrina_theromancechica. I also have an author page on Facebook.
