This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by the publisher.
Rochelle has shared with us five questions she wishes she had been asked in interviews:
1. How did you come up with the plot for the first novel you attempted to write? How long did it take for you to complete it? If or when was it published?
2. You wrote a prequel for one family series and it was very well received. Will you ever write another prequel?
3. Why do you think it took so long for romance novels featuring African-Americans as lead characters to be accepted by publishers?
4. You’ve published many more romance titles than women’s fiction. Which do you prefer? And where do you see your writing career five years from now?
5. Of all of your published titles, which rank as your Top 5 favorite? Why?
After a painful divorce and failed acting career, Francine Tanner packs her things and moves back to her hometown of Sanctuary Cove. There, she will join her mother in the family business as a hairstylist at the Beauty Box. Putting her LA dreams behind her, all Francine wants is to focus on rebuilding her life.
Keaton Grace is an independent film writer and director looking for a great place to open his own studio. After happening upon the small-town, he buys an abandoned building and surrounding lands to start his company. But he doesn’t expect to bump into the beautiful Francine Tanner when he walks into the Beauty Box for a haircut and shave. Remembering her from a performance years ago in an off-Broadway show, he knows exactly what role she will play in his life.
Sparks fly between the two until Keaton reveals his plan-he wants Francine to star in his upcoming film. Tortured by her Hollywood past, she refuses to have anything to do with the film, even if it means letting go of their budding romance.
