Author Interview and Giveaway - Throwing Heat (Diamonds and Dugouts #3) by Jennifer Seasons

Throwing Heat

Diamonds and Dugouts #3

By: Jennifer Seasons



Nightclub manager Leslie Cutter has never been one to back down from a bet. So when Peter Kowalskin, pitcher for the Denver Rush baseball team, bets her that she can’t keep her hands off of him, she’s not about to let the arrogant, sexy playboy win. Especially when the prize could put her business on the map. She’s got this in the bag, just so long as she can stay out of his arms…and his bed.

Peter struck out once before with Leslie, but this bet is sure to be the second chance he’s been waiting for. Determined to stoke the passion he knows is there, he’ll do anything to win - even if it means playing a little dirty.

But as things heat up, this combustible pair will have to decide just how much they’re willing to wager on one another…and on a future that just might last forever.

Author Interview:

What is your writing environment?  Anywhere I can grab a few minutes to sit and concentrate.  I use a laptop, so it can go where I go.  But, most often I find myself writing at the dining room table because I can see most of the house from that vantage point and keep an eye on my toddler and infant .

Who is your perfect hero/heroine? Why?  When I was sixteen I fell in love with Murphy Muldoon, the Irish farmer from Nora Roberts’ BORN IN SHAME.   He has a special place in my heart and will always be pretty darn perfect.

Which authors have caught your interest lately? Why?  Codi Gary jumps to mind.  So do Candis Terry and Monica Murphy.  The reason they’ve caught my eye is that they write in the same genre that I do.  Typically when I read for pleasure I grab a historical romance (I LOVE my Highlanders, thank you Julie Garwood).   I’ve only recently started reading other contemporary romances and these ladies write some stellar ones.

What type of book have you always wanted to write?  I’ve always wanted to write romance.  But, I’d also really love to write a cozy mystery series with paranormal elements.  That’d be so much fun!

Top 3 things on your bucket list:  Go to Scotland and search for Nessie,  See Machu Picchu in person while people are still allowed at the site,  and kiss my husband on a beach in Belize at sundown.

How did you get the idea for this particular novel?  It really built on itself from the first book in the series, STEALING HOME.  I knew right from the beginning that there were secrets between Peter and Leslie, and as I wrote each book the secret came out.  Right then the story fell together in one cohesive whole.

What is your favorite scene in your newest release? Personally, I love the bbq scene with all the characters and Peter antagonizing Leslie.  It’s got such a fun, family feel to it.  I smile every time I read it.

What is the last movie you watched and loved?  Gosh, this is tough.  We rarely watch movies or TV around here.  But, we did watch Star Trek: Into Darkness and I really liked it.  So I guess that counts.

What would you consider a “perfect date”?  Any date that gets me alone with my hubby for some quality one-on-one.  Then it’s all perfect.

What are you currently working on?   A Valentine’s Day novella for Drake Paulson, the first baseman in my Diamonds and Dugouts series, titled CONFESSIONS OF A SECRET ADMIRER.  It’s fun and sweet and sexy.  I think you’ll all like it.  J
