#Win Fortune's Secret Heir by Allison Leigh #NewYearNewReads

ALLISON LEIGH was born in Southern California and has lived in several different cities in four different states.  She has been, at one time or another, a cosmetologist, a computer programmer, church secretary, and database administrator.  She currently makes her home in Arizona with her family whom she credits with remarkable patience for the hours she spends parked in front of her computer, and more importantly, for blessing her life with the kind of love and happiness that she wants her readers to continue sharing with the characters living in the pages of her books.

Q&A with Allison Leigh –Fortune’s Secret Heir

1)      List two books you’ve read more than three times.

 The entire Harry Potter series.

2)      Is anything in Fortune’s Secret Heir based on real life experiences or purely all imagination? 

Purely imagination.  Well, no.  Actually, there is a scene where my heroine takes a city bus; I’ve done that.  Ha!

3)      What are some of your favorite words and why? 

Possibilities.  Why?  Because of all the possibilities!

4)      You get a brilliant phrase/idea/thought at an inappropriate time (while driving, drifting off to sleep/in the shower). What do you do? 

My brilliant mind (ha) tells me that I’ll remember that brilliant notion.  Of course, I promptly forget the details.  If I’m really feeling ambitious, I’ll stop what I’m doing and write it down, or (hard to believe I’ll admit this) I will phone myself and leave a voice mail message.

5)      What do you do when you are not writing? 

Think about writing.  I also have a full-time job outside of writing at a local non-profit working in the Finance department.  Very non-creative.  That ought to mean my mind is balanced between writing and that, shouldn’t it?  Hmmm….

6)      Where is one place you want to visit that you haven't been before? 

New York City!

7)      Is there a certain type of scene that's harder for you to write than others? Love? Action? Racy? 

Love scenes can be a challenge, but not always.  Emotionally wrenching scenes can be exhausting, but not always.  The scenes that are the hardest to write are those where nothing important is going on.  Thus, the difficulty, and in all likelihood it means I need to go back and rework something so something important is happening.  When I’m at a dead end for some reason, it always means I’ve gone off course when I shouldn’t have.

8)      How important are names to you in your books? Do you choose the names based on liking the way it sounds or the meaning? 

Names are important to me, and sometimes you end up with a character’s name you never intended.  A secondary character, for instance, who later unexpectedly becomes a hero or heroine.  Names help me form that vision in my head of my character.  Sometimes I go hunting for that ‘perfect’ name, flipping through my various name resources.  Sometimes it just hits me.  I wake up one morning, and think, “Aha!  Well, of course, that’s the name.”

9)      What question do you wish that someone would ask about your book, but nobody has? Write it out here, then answer it. 

Frankly, I’m always surprised when someone has a question about one of my books.  My mind is a blank on this one!

10)  What are you working on now? What is your next project? 

Presently, I’m working on a synopsis for my next Men of the Double-C Ranch-related stories. That, and trying to get my Christmas gifts wrapped on time.

–Amazon Reviewer

Cool, confident and in control: that's Ben Robinson, the billionaire COO of Robinson Tech. With his imposing height and sharp blue eyes, he can convince anyone to do anything, but suddenly he feels like a fraud. The handsome Texan has just discovered his entire life has been a lie.
With the news that his father might actually be a long-lost—and very prodigal—Fortune, Ben trains his laser focus on determining the truth. He persuades sweet, earnest Ella Thomas to help him in his research; no one would ever suspect the part-time college student of subterfuge. Ella is sensitive and highly intuitive…in other words, Ben's total opposite. And as she digs for his Fortune roots, she may also uncover the billionaire's long-shuttered heart.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
