Distraction arrives via sexy screenwriter, Noah Reynolds. His take-me-to-bed looks mask a past ripe with scandal. He knows he should stay away from Lauren, especially when the worst night of her life unlocks his writer's block as he's dealing with a stalker of his own, but ethics are his weakness.
Attraction sizzles beneath Caribbean sunshine. As their relationship grows, Noah's stalker intensifies her torment. Lauren wonders if her paranoia is justified or a carryover from her past. What's real? What's imagined? Tentative trust is tested as their love is swept up against a riptide of deceit, murder, and revenge.
Her characters and story plots are all inspired from life, people she encounters, and just plain old human nature. Easton writes mostly romantic suspense, contemporary romance, and mystery/thrillers, both in print and eBook. “I think the electronic medium is a plus for the publishing industry because it creates a broader readership base,” shared Easton.
However, she is quick to share her thoughts on the ever-growing print-on-demand and self-publishing book industry. “I think self-publishing is good for established writers who have gone through the process and know the business. This is where people may get ‘sensitive’ on me... just because someone has a computer and can push the enter button, however, doesn’t mean they should upload their book and call themselves an author." As Easton explains, "Quality is what I worry about down the road of publishing if people snub the idea of publishing houses and editors--which we all NEED.” And quality is what you get when reading one of Amber Lea Easton’s novels. You can tell she puts her heart and soul into every novel, chapter, character, scene and word. I’m sure her fans are happy to know how important quality means to this romance author.
Easton isn’t afraid of those nasty rejection letters many new and professional writers dread. “I, for one, like having a publisher and an editor. I don’t mind the years of rejection letters because they made me better in the long run. I’m glad I paid my dues, went to conferences, adapted, learned because some of that early stuff that was rejected... well, I’m thankful it isn’t out there haunting me now. It will be interesting to see what happens down the road. Don’t rule out the publishers and editors... they are a necessity.”
