Stella: Hi Gina, welcome to Ex Libris! Can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Lucie: [rolls her eyes while blushing] You cheated; that’s six words.
Reid: I’m pretty sure it’s a rule that words with hyphens are considered one word.
Lucie: *snorts* You’re so full of it. Oh, it’s my turn. Three words? Protective, loving… [looks at Reid] Mine.
Reid: Damn straight.
Reid: [chuckles] It’s a handy talent to have.
Lucie: Yes, which brings me to the next part of the answer. It drives me up the wall when he’s able to charm his way out of doing the dishes. [Reid smiles and winks at Stella] He’s great about helping with everything else, but run some soapy water in the kitchen sink and suddenly inspiration for a new sculpture hits and he books it out of the room.
Reid: I’m terrible at washing dishes anyway. You’re so much better at it. It’s one of the reasons I love you, actually. [Lucie laughs, obviously delighting Reid] Okay, my turn. The thing I most love about Luce is the way she makes me feel. When I’m with her I feel ten feet tall, strong enough to move mountains, and loved to the very depths of my soul. But the part of her that drives me up a wall is that she still doesn’t completely believe me when I tell her she’s the most beautiful, most amazing woman I’ve ever met.
Lucie: [throws a hand up, looking at Stella with moisture in her eyes] See what I mean? Resistance is futile.
Lucie: Needless to say, Reid won the argument. But later admitted I was right when things didn’t exactly go according to his plan.
Reid: [grumbling] Bastard damn near busted my jaw clean off.
Stella: Would be my pleasure Gina, and I'm so looking forward to the next Fighting for Love books! :-D
The first book in her paranormal romance trilogy, Desires of the Soul, is set to release both digitally and in mass trade paperback in Summer 2013 for the Entangled Select imprint.

Book #1 in the Fighting for Love series
He’ll teach her the art of seduction…for a price.
Mixed martial arts fighter Reid Andrews’s chance to reclaim his title as light heavyweight champ is shattered when he’s injured only months before the rematch. To make sure he’s healed in time, his trainer sends him to recuperate under a professional’s care—Reid’s best friend’s little sister, all grown up.
Disorganized and bookish Lucie Miller needs some professional help of her own. She’d do anything to catch the eye of a doctor she’s crushed on for years, so when Reid offers seduction lessons in exchange for 24/7 conditioning for the biggest fight of his career, Lucie jumps at the chance.
Soon Reid finds himself in the fight of his life…winning Lucie’s heart before she gives it to someone else.
