I have invited my friend, Robin Kaye back to visit and to tell us about her latest book, Had to be You, releasing TODAY! So, sit back, have a little fun, and be sure and comment because I’ll be giving away two copies to some lucky folks next week!
OK, Robin, let’s start with telling us three things about yourself that your readers would be surprised about.
I used to be a 120-pound bouncer in a dance club and bar. The owners thought that having a girl at the door would lead to less fights—it didn’t. As you can imagine, my mother was so proud.
I can’t sit still for long, so I write using an exercise ball as a chair so at least I can bounce. I also have a treadmill desk so I can walk and write at the same time. I love it.
I can’t really think of anything else except that I knit and spin yarn, and weave—although not as often as I’d like. 🙂
What is it that your heroine loves most about the hero, and what is it about him that drives her crazy?
Rocki loves and hates that Slater doesn’t fall for Rocki’s shtick—he sees past all the smoke and mirrors she hides behind and has since the first time he laid eyes on her. And she loves that deep down inside Slater is a good man and always does what’s right even to his own detriment.
If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
A food critique or a cook. I’m a total foodie and love to cook, but if you’ve ever read any of my books, you probably know that.
I always like to end with a fun one…name three things that are on your desk right now.
Chocolate from Germany, coffee, and a bobble head cat on top of my computer—his head bobs while I walk.
Love it! Now can you tell us a little bit about Had to be You?
The last place he expected to find lasting love was back in his hometown….
Slater knew tragedy from a young age, but with the support of his foster family, he turned his life around. Now, back from a stint in the Navy, he’s packed up his motorcycle and returned to Red Hook to help run the family restaurant–a job that comes with a tantalizing upside. Her name is Rocki.
Flirty, sweet, and outgoing, Rocki brings in crowds as the lead singer of the house band. And although she’s unable to resist the charms of this intense bad boy, she refuses to open her heart to him. Until a family crisis shatters Rocki’s easygoing demeanor, exposing something from her past she’d always hoped would stay hidden.
But Slater knows a thing or two about family secrets–and he sets out to prove to Rocki that their relationship could finally give them both a future worth believing in.
