Friday Fun - Meet author Lacey Wolfe!

Please help me welcome my friend, the talented LACEY WOLFE! Lacey writes hot contemporary romances and has brought her latest release, FOOL ME ONCE. She's also going to give 1 free copy to a lucky commentator:)
You can learn more about Lacey and all her work at then grab a cup of coffee - I'm thinking Salted Caramel today - and visit with us!
Thanks for being here today, Lacey.

Was your road to publication a delightful stroll in the park or a tiring jog over hot coals? 
My road wasn't as hard as some but it also wasn't a walk in the breeze. I've been writing for years and sharing my stories here and there with friends and so on. Amber's Muse, my debut novella was the first thing I wrote for publication. It was in ten drafts before it found a home, but I did receive several rejections along the way before it found its home at Beachwalk Press. 

Do you have critique partners? 
Yes, and without them I wouldn't be where I am today. Thankfully they aren't afraid to tell me what needs work and what sucks. I think they are the reason I have had the success I have so far.

What is the most difficult for you to write: Characters, conflict, emotions? 
I think the emotions. You have to get it right so the reader feels it too. This is something I've learned a lot about through editing. How to get deeper into my characters so the reader feels like they are the hero/heroine.

Tell us about your real life romance. 
I think my real life romance might make for a good romance novel. My hunky hubby was once my boss. And it was instant attraction between us. It took us three years, but we finally found our way to the alter. Its been ten years now and I enjoy each day with him.

What is your favorite dessert/food? 
I love taco salads and fried chicken! And dessert, give me chocolate with more chocolate. In fact, lets make it a chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting, and top it off with chocolate sprinkles. Yum!

How likely are people you meet to end up in your next book? 
At this point I think people are safe. I have plenty of characters in my head banging to get out. Once I use them up, I may start looking for some inspiration.

Thank you for having me here today Jennifer.

Fool Me Once (Hot Bods Series)
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…

Drew is the last person Skylar wanted to see across from her at a local bar. A month ago he'd wined and dined her all weekend, leaving her feeling fully in love, but then she awoke alone in an empty hotel room and she hadn't heard from him since.

The weekend Drew spent with Skylar was phenomenal. There had never been anyone who made him feel as complete as she did. He shouldn't have disappeared, he should have called, but his feelings for her scared him, so he distanced himself. But when he saw her again, he knew he couldn't stay away any longer.

Skylar's determined not to give Drew another chance to hurt her, but he's just as determined to win her back. Although it won't be easy, he's up to the challenge, and he's willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish his goal.
