#Win Colton's Surprise Heir by Addison Fox (US)

ADDISON FOX can’t remember a time when words weren’t part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of one with The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen.) Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Auel while writing a paper at the library in the seventh grade. Although not a classic romance, Ayla and Jondalar’s love story moved her firmly into the romance section and she hasn’t looked back!

Addison writes paranormal and contemporary romance for NAL, category-length romantic suspense for Harlequin Romantic Suspense and category-length contemporary romance for Entangled Indulgence.  Addison lives in Dallas. She loves to get email from readers.

Love Lessons Learned

I am endlessly fascinated by the process of writing. I’m an avid reader and I have an experience and a journey with the characters in every book I read. That feeling is only exacerbated when I write. I can see my characters in my mind and I get to feel what they’re feeling as they learn to accept one another in their lives. Because this is such a personal journey as an author, it’s also rewarding to realize that I’m learning something, right along with them. This was absolutely true writing COLTON’S SURPRISE HEIR.

Ethan Colton survived a horrible childhood. One of seven children of notorious serial killer Matthew Colton, Ethan is also the child who discovered his murdered mother – his father’s last victim. From there he and his siblings spent time in foster care before heading out into the world to make something of themselves. Our heroine, Lizzie Conner, knew Ethan when he would come to visit his youngest sister who had the same foster parents as she did.

There was so much to learn in writing this couple. When we think of love, we think of finding the right person, falling in love and living happily ever after. But what if your image of love was so destroyed by the one person who should have loved you above all others?  It was a fascinating experience walk with these characters and to work with them as they overcame their preconceived notions about others and about themselves.

In the end, Lizzie and Ethan taught me about forgiveness, about opening your heart even when you think you can’t and understanding that just because someone couldn’t love you properly doesn’t mean you’re unlovable.

Thanks for joining me today!
Best,
Addison

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
