My Friend Shannon - Heroine Interview & Giveaway
Shannon has generously offered a copy to one lucky winner, so leave a comment below with an email address for a chance to win! (And we've got a slew of other giveaways going on right now, too, so be sure to check the Current Giveaway links in the sidebars.)
I left Searcy, Arkansas eight years ago, and swore I’d never come back. But I got a promotion to postmaster at the Romance Post Office. It isn’t quite home, but it’s too close for comfort to my dysfunctional family. I hoped to transfer soon, but then my brother came home and I learned I have nephew. And then there’s Hayden. He’s the first man who ever made me wonder if marriage could be a good thing.
What’s one of your most interesting traits?
I’m fiercely loyal, just not to my parents.
What’s your favorite indulgence?
Cold Coca Cola with hulled salty peanuts dumped into it.
Hmm, never tried that. Sounds interesting. =) What do you fear more than anything else?
Being alone for the rest of my life.
Who’s your favorite person in the world (whether they’re still with you or not), and why?
My recently discovered nephew, Brady. He makes me want to stay in Romance even though my parents live near. And Hayden’s growing on me. But I can’t fall for him because I don’t want to end up like my parents.
If you could change one part of your past, undo one decision, what would it be?
I shouldn’t have left home. I should have stayed and tried to work things out with my parents.
If you could travel anywhere, to any time, where would you go and why?
Romance is growing on me, but I’d be happy to travel where ever Hayden does.
What’s the most surprising thing someone has ever said about you?
Helen Fenwick said she was glad I’m here, that my mother needs me near. I didn’t know my mother ever needed anyone, especially me.
About White Doves
Romance wasn’t what Laken had in mind.
Laken Kroft left home eight years ago and never looked back. Who knew when she applied for the promotion to postmaster that she'd end up in Romance, Arkansas, and much too close to her parents, the town drunk and the local gossip maven?
Hayden Winters has his hands full raising his paraplegic nephew, Brady, and wrestling with his guilt over having caused the child's injury. When the boy's father, Laken's brother, turns up and starts talking custody, Laken's influence is Hayden's only hope. But whose side is she really on?
Will their mutual bond with their seven-year-old nephew draw them closer or rip them asunder? Will Laken accept Hayden “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” or be forced to turn her back on him and “Return to Sender”?
