Bliss, Colorado gave Hope McLean a second chance at life but she is hiding a dark secret.
Raised as brothers, James Glen and Noah Bennett always dreamed of finding a woman to share their lives on the Circle G ranch. James would run the ranch, while Noah served the town of Bliss as the resident vet. But when a woman came between the brothers, Noah fled for New York City and James was left to struggle for the ranch’s survival alone.
Now that Noah has returned, he will do anything to repay his debt to James. When he sees Hope, he knows she is the woman they both have been waiting for. But just as their love begins to bloom, a nightmare from Hope’s past returns to claim her.
To save Hope, and themselves, they will have to reforge the brotherhood that was shattered and fight for their future.
Ali: Is there an author that makes you go all “fangirl?”
Sophie: There are several. I love The Hunger Games so meeting Suzanne Collins would be amazing. On the romance end, I grew up reading Jayne Ann Krentz and Linda Howard. I was actually sitting in New York with Shayla Black eating breakfast at RWA Nationals last year and we looked over and two tables away sat Jayne Ann Krentz and Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I managed to maintain my professional demeanor and not attack her. JAK is my comfort food.
Ali: If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
Sophie: I have co-written a couple of times. I have a book with Chloe Lang and I co-wrote several books with Shayla Black under another pen name. I’ll be honest, it’s a deeply intimate thing to write a book with another author. I wouldn’t write with someone I don’t know. Shayla and I are best friends who are pretty much in each other’s lives twenty-four seven. We like to say we’re married – we certainly are financially.
Ali: What are you looking forward to most about AADNola?
Sophie: It’s my first AAD and I’m looking forward to everything! I’ve never been in New Orleans. I really want to see the city.
Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Sophie: Can’t I take my Kindle? I guess not. It would need a charge. One book. I would take a blank one and a pen because I couldn’t choose and would probably find comfort in writing while the zombies attack.
Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else’s)
Sophie: I think my first favorite literary character was Sydney Carton from A Tale of Two Cities. He’s the ultimate self-sacrificing reformed bad boy. From romance I would say I adore Dane Hollister from Linda Howard’s Dream Man and Sam Stark from Trust Me by Jayne Ann Krentz.
Of my own characters, I would say I have a definite soft spot for Julian Lodge.
Ali: Are there any of your secondary characters you would like to give more life to?
Sophie: I’ve been building up this one character for six books. He’s from my Nights in Bliss series. I was talking to a reviewer friend the other day and she asked me about Logan Green. He starts out in Three to Ride as this kind of goofy manchild deputy and over the course of the series something very tragic happens to him and he morphs into this tortured guy. So the reader gets to see his whole story arc played out over seven or eight books.
