Book Description:
Stranded together, their passions will run wild.

Kara has a deep dislike for her boss, Max. She also wants him so badly it’s making her nuts. He’s a workaholic, a robot man. And he’s never shown the least bit of interest in her or anything else that wasn’t recorded in the corporate minutes. But when their plane crashes on the way to a meeting, leaving them stranded on a deserted island…just the two of them, all alone with all that ocean around them…Kara decides it’s time to start living. And by living, she means using Max for all the hot sex she’s been denied.
Max wants Kara—has wanted her for a long time. Unable to come out and cross the line between professional and personal, he makes her accompany him on business trips just to have her around. When they crash land and Kara shows him how much she wants him, he decides to quit being so professional and take the woman of his dreams. After all, what happens in the middle of nowhere, stays in the middle of nowhere. Until they’re rescued.
Back in the real world, things aren’t as easy. Kara is afraid to start a relationship with a man who completely ignored her until she took off her clothes, and Max is afraid she’ll never be able to trust him.
But when someone makes it clear that Kara’s in danger, Max has more to protect than Kara’s feelings. And now that he has her, he’s not about to let her go. 
Now for the interview... Let's have fun with Ms. April :)

Why don't you tell us a little about yourself.... Something that we cannot Google about you, lol!
Since you are a new to me author, I am hoping to bring you to the light of others! So share away!

I love to try new things. I tried making cakepops and did pretty good. I did scrapbooking for a while and still have a ton of supplies. I don't consider myself creative, but I love to see if I can do things that come so easily to others. I did a professional booty cake for a friend's birthday. Let's just say even I was impressed with how well that one turned out. LOL. I am a foodie and LOVE eating. Not so much the cooking but I'll bake the heck out of anything. lol. 

Tell us a little about your book?

Stranded Temptation is a Contemporary Erotic Romance. It's about this CEO and his head accountant. They have a tenuous relationship, so when their plane crashes on their way to south america, things turn upside down for them. Kara refuses to let any more time go to waste and takes matter into her own hands. The results are rather explosive.

How much emotion does it take from you to write?

for my romances, I have to have emotion. I can't write anything without feelings and I think sometimes it's harder especially when you have a main character with trust issues or insecurity. I feel for them and I want to make things better. It is why I write romance. I need to give them all a happily ever my emotions definitely go into play and I have to feel emotionally connected to the actions/words before I can say it's ok. 

What is your favorite part of the book?

Probably the beginning and the end. I love starting fresh and seeing the story unravel in my mind. The end and all of it coming together makes it so awesome. I feel super accomplished when i finish. 

What was your favorite scene to write?

hehehe well...I do love the hot stuff. Sex does rock and I love writing it. But i think when they do the first kiss or when they talk emotion. I love gettin gushy and sappy. LOL. 

You can only pick 3 words for your main characters..what would they be? *to describe your main characters*

Kara: Strong, Self-assured, Fighter.
Max: Focused, Determined, Sweet. 

Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why?? I think Max was easiest because even though you saw one thing when the book started, as you went, you saw a different side to him. Kara was the same thing. i won't give away what it was about them that did it, but they each showed layers you didn't think were there.
How many books are you shooting for in this series??
This book is not part of a series, but I may go back and write books for the side characters, which I loved.

What are you currently working on?

I am currently writing wolf shifters as Milly Taiden. 

Do you have anything due to release soon?

Yes. I have Wynter's Captive (wolf shifters) set to release on 1/18 and Wicked Valentine as April Angel to release on 1/25. I'm very excited. January has started off with a bang.
What's one thing that you enjoy about writing?
Creating my own versions of happily ever afters for my characters. I love playing matchmaker.

Since we're cover hussies....what was your first impression of your cover?
LOL. I like the cover. I'm in love with the guy they used. He's very hot. The colors are amazing and they did a great job creating something that makes me thing of the colors in an island sunset!

What do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks?

Both. To carry around definitely ebooks, but I'd love to have a bunch of paperbacks with my name on them :) 

Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try? probably YA. I have a tendency of getting hot and heavy without meaning to.

Okay.... personal time!!!! Oh yeah, I go there... Hahah...

If you thought you were safe... Nah... Forgot it... Not a chance! We will start off slow and easy, I promise!

What is on your night stand/dresser?

Tissues, water bottle, phone.

What are you listening to you right now?

The lovely sound of my husband and son playing Black Ops 2 on the XBOX 360

What are you reading right now?

Breaking The Nexus by Lindsay Avalon (great book by a great indie author)
What is your favorite season? Holiday?

I love all holidays. I'm a huge fan of Valentine's Day and always get everyone chocolates and flowers. I love christmas and the time to spend it with family and doing fun things like going to see the huge tree down at rock plaza. Holidays are fun when you do things that are enjoyable.
And what has been your best b-day present ever?? Best ever?

I think my first contract for Sharp Change (wolf shifters). I sat there and couldn't believe it said they wanted my book. It was awesome. The worst would have to be the one seven years ago. My father passed away three days before my birthday and I've never look at them the same again.

Gentleness she’d never noticed before in Max was evident in his eyes. She watched him curl his large hand over her much smaller one. Her heart beat so loudly in her ears she feared he might hear it. He brought her hand to his lips and kissed it. Fire roared in her blood, and her breath hitched. He turned her hand over and brushed a warm, firm kiss over her palm while they stared at each other.

“I’d never put you in danger.” Deepened to rough gravel, the sound of his voice made her pussy throb and blood thicken in her veins.

Somehow she knew what he said was the truth. “Kiss me, Max.”

The words were barely out of her lips when he dragged her onto his lap and their lips met in desperation. Her arms twined around his neck. Pulling him closer, she brought her chest flush to his. Heat took over every cell of her body. His kiss devoured her. Lord, the man was a kissing god. With soft strokes of his tongue, he caressed the inside of her mouth. Whimpering in the back of her throat, she moved restlessly on his lap. The long, steel length of his cock was poking at her ass. He glided his hands under her top, making her belly flesh quiver. When his warm hands touched her skin, desire increased inside her tenfold. Breaths turned to pants. Her body thrummed with arousal. She tuned everything but the sight of him out of her mind.

She pulled back and smiled. “I want you, Max.”

He frowned and took a deep breath. “Kara, you’re in shock—”

Determined, she shook her head and cut him off. “No, Max. I’m alive.”

She smiled again and pulled off her top. Her bra was now the only barrier between her breasts and his hands. Swollen into tight points, the peaks of her nipples called for his touch under the satiny material. A combination of lust, hunger, and desperation flared in his eyes. His usually light gray eyes darkened to that of a murky, stormy day.

“Fuck, Kara. I want you too, but I don’t have condoms.”

Air fought its way into her lungs. “I’m clean and on birth control.”

He continued to frown. “I’m clean too, but are you sure?”

In a smooth move worthy of any professional stripper, her hand reached behind her back, unsnapped her bra, and pulled it off. “Fuck me, Max. I want you inside me, right now.”

His hands curled around her head and held her immobile. Raw hunger made her body shudder. Their kiss turned into a greedy need to consume each other. Moisture gathered in her pussy, and an incessant throbbing took hold between her thighs. In a frantic mating, their tongues danced, rubbed, and curled over each other until passion overrode all else. Blind lust shot through her when she rocked her hips over his hard cock.

He kissed wet trails from her jaw to her breasts until he was sucking on one of her erect nipples. Her pussy clenched when he enveloped her breast with his firm lips. Soaked in her cream, her thong became a new point of friction on her swollen pussy lips. She tore at his shirt. A wanton urgency took hold of her and guided her actions. To feel his skin on hers became her only mission.

When he helped her take the shirt off, she splayed her hands over his bulging shoulders and sighed. When his warm muscles contracted, she groaned. He was a work of art. His chest was corded with muscles and bronzed to perfection. Just looking at him made her pant. Whimpers rushed past her lips when his teeth grazed her turgid nipple.

“Oh, yes. Do that again.”

Again, he sucked and then nipped at the tight bud. She moaned and pushed her chest further into his face. He released her nipple from his lips and rolled the wet tip between his finger and thumb, tweaking the sensitive flesh while his mouth latched onto the other one for a taste. She dug her nails into his shoulders, holding him in her grip while rocking her hips over his cock. Movement made her open her eyes. Max had made the seat flatten back so that it was the size of a double bed.

A smile curled her lips when she gazed into his almost-black eyes. He motioned for her to stand. Once she did, he moved his hands to her white pants and slowly pulled the linen material, along with her thong, down her legs. With every inch of skin he exposed, he placed a kiss on a body part. First it was her stomach. Then it was her hip when he lowered the material down her legs. Her knee came next and finally her calf. Afterward he kissed his way back up to her stomach. She groaned and stood in place. He licked circles on her stomach and around her belly button. He caressed her breasts, down the sides of her breasts to her waist, and squeezed the flare of her hips. She took a choppy breath. He fluttered his fingertips down from her hips toward her core, and she bit her lip to keep from moaning. When he massaged her thighs, she was ready to beg him to touch her. Before she had a chance to, he moved a hand between her legs and dipped his fingers between her waxed pussy lips.

He groaned. “Fuck, Kara. You’re so hot and wet. Is that for me, baby?”

“God, yes. Just for you.” She moaned.

Each dip of his fingers into her wet sex made her whimper louder.

He stood, and she had to tilt her head back to look him in the eye. His eyes were sexy, stormy. He put his arms around her waist and held her tight to him. Their hearts beat in a furious, identical gallop. He switched their positions and pushed her to lie on the bed.
