Interview and Giveaway - Freedom of Love by G.S. Carr

Freedom of Love

by G.S. Carr 



The stunning daughter of the French nobleman Dominique, marquis d’Chartes and the African beauty Imani Marsan, Soleil is captivated by everything during her first trip to America including Alex.  She loves him almost from their first meeting. However, their love is interrupted when she is abducted and sold into slavery.  Alone and scared she only wishes to regain her freedom. 

Alexander couldn't help but love the exotic beauty with the caramel skin that made him want to taste it.  Losing her was the hardest day of his life. After years of searching she appears as if conjured by his deepest desires. But she returns far from the same.  Can they rekindle their love or will they never find the freedom only love can bring.



Jane ran as fast as she could.  She refused to be caught by Jacob and his men even if she had to die trying to escape.  Between the gash across her stomach and the small load on her back she was moving slowly in her progression, but she would not give up.  She had to find a river and soon to conceal her scent.  With her wound bleeding harder under the strain of her physical exertion, the bloodhounds had no problem keeping track of her.   

“Maman, I’m scared.”  Jane reached around her back to sooth her daughter.  “I will not let you come to any harm mon amour.”  Jane knew the little girl was scared beyond belief.  She had seen the beatings Jacob had given Jane and knew that if he caught them there would be hell to pay.  Jacob and his men were getting closer with each passing second and it wouldn’t be long before they were caught.  Jane couldn’t let anything happen to Hope and had to keep her safe.  With a look over her shoulder Jane made a decision. 

Author Interview:

What is your writing environment.
I usually write at home while I am stretched out on the coach.  I typically zone out when I am writing and don’t really pay attention to much around me for hours at a time, so it doesn’t matter what is going on around me. I can be writing with my husband blaring the TV while watching a football game and I wouldn’t notice.  I just try to make sure that I am in a comfortable position so that I am not stiff when I come out of my zombie writing state.

Who is your perfect hero? And why?
I like a hero that is strong enough to allow the heroine to feel safe and delicate. I like when he is confident, but not arrogant.  He should have at least one romantic bone in his body or else I don’t feel that it is believable when the heroine just falls in love with him in the end.  Of course a smoking hot body doesn’t hurt either.

Which authors have caught your interest lately? Why?
I love Pepper Pace.  She is so amazing!  I love the uniqueness of her stories. Her characters are all flawed and are not your typical heroes and heroines.  They are normal people dealing with their problems while trying to find love. It is very easy to relate to or see parts of myself in some of her characters.

What type of book have you always wanted to write?
I have always wanted to write Romance Novels. I have been reading them ever since I was in middle school (granted I probably shouldn’t have been reading them that young).  I will say however, that I don’t really write flowers and sunshine romance.  I think that true love comes from your ability to overcome the bad and not always having the good.

What’s the last movie you watched and loved?
The last movie that I watched and loved was Kick Ass 2.  I thought it was better than the first one.  I love to laugh and this movie definitely delivered the funny.  I will admit it was a little more adult/dirty humor, but what can I say, I like indulging in my primitive brain humor every once in a while. 

Top three things on your bucket list
  • I want to be on the Ellen Degeneres show
  • I want to learn another language (working on my Spanish now)
  • I want to have my own library in my house 

How did you get the idea for this particular novel?
Nothing really ever gives me ideas per say. I usually just drift off into space and starting thinking. Things just come to me.  I will admit I do have a bad habit of spacing out when driving. I’ll get home having no clue how I got there, but I’ll have the first chapter of my book outlined in my head.

What is your favorite scene in your new release?
My favorite scene is the one between Alex and Soleil when they are children, and they are talking by the lake during their first meeting. I really enjoyed writing the scene because I got to put some good humor into it and really draw out each of their base natures.  When I finished writing it I had a moment where I thought, “Alex you sly devil.  Smooth even at such a young age.”

What’s your idea of a perfect date?
My idea of the perfect date includes talking and an activity that facilitates talking.  I don’t particularly care for going to the movies because you have to be quiet the entire time and you never really get the chance to know the other person.  I would rather go to an arcade and play games. You get to know each other and you can even get nonverbal glimpses into their personality such as how competitive they are with you or the games.

If you could take a romantic trip, where would it be?
If I could take a romantic trip it would be to an all-inclusive beach resort in the Caribbean.  Me and my husband would just sit around, feed each other, and enjoy the beautiful scenery.  Maybe watch the sunset (not enough a morning person for sunrise) over the ocean while we sat on the beach.  And we would do a few water and outdoor activities like hiking, snorkeling, etc.

AUTHOR Bio and Links: 

Raised in Charlotte NC, G.S. Carr has always enjoyed indulging in her imagination. At a very young age she had a thirst for reading and the many possibilities it helped come alive in her mind’s eye.  She consumed books like they were the air she needed to survive. It seemed inevitable that her love of reading would transcend into a desire to create her own stories.  She began writing poetry and stories at the age of 10.  By the time she was thirteen she found her passion in the romance genre and has not looked back ever since.
