Starting today, I have an interview up at Deep In The Heart Of Romance, a fantastic authors' site. I've read a lot of author interviews over the years, because I want to know more about the persons behind the prose. I’m intrigued with how other writers see things, do things.
Take a few minutes and go check it out. http://www.deepintheheartromance.com/search/label/Belle%20Sloane?max-results=20
Have a wonderful rest of the summer and Read On!

Blurb for SMOLDERING LUST:
Local girl Hannah Hayward has made a name for herself in the mayor's office. But when her town's new fire chief turns out to be bad boy Lee Evans, back after fourteen years and looking even sexier than she remembers, she's got more to worry about than his budget requests. He's too good to believe...and too hot to deny.
Other stories in the FEEL THE HEAT anthology include Lorie O'Clare's FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE and P.J. Mellor's HEAT WAVE. (Paperback, 304 pages.)
