Tasty Book Tour: Nobody’s Angel by Sarah Hegger

TBheaderNobody's AngelToday I’m interviewing Sarah Heggar’s hero of Nobody’s Angel for Tasty Book Tours.

Meet Richard Hunter, a local doctor in the town of Willow Park. His first met his love interest, Lucy Flint, nine years ago when she was chatting to his, then, girlfriend. They fell madly in love, she’s broken his heart and left town. Now, she’s back and Richard is struggling.

What’s the one thing you’d never tell your lover?

There’s nothing I wouldn’t tell Lucy. There’s been far too much hurt between us as it is. One thing I don’t think she really gets, I mean she gets it, but doesn’t get it, is how deeply the first time I saw her is imprinted on me. It’s like the whole world stopped in that moment, and there was only her.

I never got over her. Never forgot a single thing about her.

What’s one thing your lover or potential lover can do to totally turn you on?

The way she moves like she’s got ZZ Top “Legs” as her personal soundtrack.

Do you rely on your physical prowess or your intelligence to attract a lover? I like being fit, but as a doctor, I value brains over brawn every time.

What’s something you’ve done that could have landed you in prison? Lucy nearly got me tossed in prison a couple of times. Bar fights, that sort of thing. She was wild when she was younger and always dragging me into that shit with her.

Who’s your best buddy? What do you guys do when bromancing? Probably my brother, Josh. He’s an arrogant son of a bitch with his fancy clothes and his slick car, but he’s always got my back. He’s easy to hang out with. Thinks he can beat me at the Iron Man.

Is there a specific body type, hair, or eye color that attracts you? Once I met Lucy, that’s kind of it for me. She had this short, kick ass hair when I met her. It’s long now and sometimes it hides those killer green eyes from me. Blonde, tall and stacked with attitude. And man, those legs. They go on forever.

What do you believe is your most attractive feature? Seriously? Never gave it too much thought. Girls like a doctor, right? My brother Josh, he’s the family pretty boy. You might want to ask him this one. He’s probably got a list.

How do you stay fit? I’m in training for an Iron Man triathlon. That’s a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon 26.2-mile, raced in that order and without a break. I’m beginning to wonder what the hell I was thinking.

Name your most comfy article of clothing? My old sweat pants. Nothing better after a workout and a hot shower. I’m not a snappy dresser, as long as it fits and it’s clean. Again, Josh is your best man for this.

A favorite piece of clothing to remove from your lover? Just about anything that hides that kick ass body from me.

If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be? I wouldn’t get married. It thought I loved Ashley, but it was always Lucy for me. And I wish my dad had lived a few years more. He adored Lucy, he would be so proud of the woman she’s become and so happy she’s back.

Thanks Richard! Really enjoyed meeting you. I’ve read yours and Lucy’s story.  I love coming home stories and this one is a great read.

Here’s where you can find Sarah Hegger and her books.  Sarah recently received the ____ award for her historical, The Bride Gift. 

Blurb: In this evocative new series from author Sarah Hegger, a woman returns home after a long absence—and wonders if two wrongs really can make a right…

Nine years ago Lucy Flint ran away to Seattle, taking her friend’s boyfriend and leaving her high school sweetheart without a word of explanation. Now she’s back in Willow Park, Illinois, to help care for her ailing father—and it’s no surprise that her ex, Dr. Richard Hunter, is still angry.

Still, she’s a different Lucy now. Sober, wiser, ready to make amends to the long—make that very long—list of those she mistreated during her wild younger days. Falling for Richard all over again would mean wreaking havoc in both their lives and possibly squandering her opportunity for redemption. But here, in the place where everything went wrong, is the one person who always felt right, and a second-chance that could be the best mistake she ever made…

Author InfoSarah Hegger B&W_D

Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.

Mimicking her globe-trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother.She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.

She loves to hear from readers and you can find her at any of the places below.

Romance Writers Weekly – Work in Progress

This week on Romance Writers Weekly, Raine Balkera wants to know what our authors are writing at the moment. Our group encompasses a variety of romance genres, so this weeks posts should be very interesting. Hopefully, you arrived here via Betty Bolte author of Samantha’s Secret which is releasing on April 21st.

Drifting Desires is my tagline for beachy romances and my brand. I’m currently working on a contemporary romance set on the Outer Banks for NC. A former military K9 handler with post traumatic stress is remodeling a beach house while searching through military bureaucracy for his dog. While jogging on the beach, Josh meets a woman who’s training a puppy to be a service dog.

The next morning she shows up at his door begging him to look after Sky after her pup sitter had pooped out. Instant puppy love ensues and the woman even starts to grow on him. Here’s my favorite scene thus far.

He put on some coffee and headed down stairs. Inside the large marble shower with the both rain and massaging shower heads, he steamed away his nightmare and the cold ocean breeze from the recent run, until a rapping at the door. He wasn’t expecting a delivery today and no contractor would be delivering this early.

Josh stuck his head under the beating water attempting to ignore the hammering. Finally, the pounding stopped. He cut the water, opened the door and snagged a towel off the rack. As he returned to his bedroom the knocking commenced again, at the second floor entry. “Damn it.”

He raced up the stairs and flung open the door. After blinking twice at a women in a business suit with a bag of puppy chow in her arms, a shrill bark directed his attention to her feet.

Sky. The Labrador he’d met on the beach yesterday with her owner.

“I’m sorry to bother you.” The woman shifted nervously in her high heels.

***

Tori had lost her mind, but she was out of options. The sight of his glistening bare chest froze her mouth before she could explain her presence.

He picked up Sky and leaned on the door jamb with only a terry towel wrapped around his lean hips. “It’s okay.”

“I know you don’t know me, and we only met on the beach Booyesterday, but can I pay you to watch her today?” She sounded desperate and she was. Over a year she’d been trying to get her divorce finalized. “I have to be in court in Virginia. I may be gone all day and my friend got called into work and…”

“She’ll be fine.” He raised a brow over mischievous gray eyes, took the food with his free hand and set it inside the door. Sky licked his cheek.

Lucky dog. “Thanks, I’m Tori.”

“Josh. How’d you know I was staying here?” He stepped back gesturing for her to come in out of the cold.

Her cheeks were surely pink now and not from the winter wind. “Ahh, I live across the street. Saw you coming and going in your pick-up. Plus the deliveries. Then yesterday on the beach.”

“Guess you figure I’m a push over for a furry face.” He glanced at the black bundle that seemed content against his muscular shoulder.

Damned lucky dog. “Umm yeah.” She checked her watch. “Can I get your number?” she asked while digging her phone from her bag. He spieled out his digits as she tapped on the display. “Can’t tell you how much I appreciate this.”

“You get a discount at the home improvement store where you said you work?” He rubbed his chin that was still covered in light brown sexy scruff. Her fingers itched to touch.

God, the man didn’t even care he was half-naked in front of her as he bartered payment. He knew he had her at a disadvantaged no matter who showed more skin. “Twenty percent.”

“That’ll work. I need a new reciprocating saw.” He winked.

Jeez, why did he have to be such a good-looking dog lover? “Done.” She extended her hand. “I should be back around five.” Warm fingers clasped around hers. His solid grip felt secure. Something her marriage had sorely lacked. That nightmare that would end today. “Thanks.”

Hope you enjoyed my snippet.  Any title suggestions would be appreciated.  Now on to P.J. Fiala’s hot excerpt!
