His Flower Queen by Lena Hart ♥ Book Blast & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Contemporary Romance)

His Flower Queen (Quartette I)
Nina can’t get enough of Gabe…but Gabe’s been keeping secrets. Gabe is a shrewd businessman who knows what he wants and he wants Nina. There’s only one person keeping him from the woman he’s determined to have—his soon-to-be ex-wife. As Gabe works to restore Nina’s trust in him, she suddenly finds herself caught in a dangerous web of jealousy and obsession and soon learns that loving Gabe may just cost them more than they bargained for.
“Who told you I was married?”

Her back straightened and he winced at his choice of words. The glare she shot him told him exactly what she thought of him at that moment.

“You’re not even going to deny it,” she accused incredulously. The disgust in her tone made him feel like a cheating, conniving bastard.

He sat up on the bed and reached for her. She jerked back, taking him by surprise. She had never pulled away from him before. The hard knot in his stomach intensified and he wavered between dragging her into his arms and giving her space.

“Don’t you dare touch me again, Gabe,” she snapped. “I’m not going to be your whore. We…this was a one-time thing. Now I need you to leave.”

He clenched his jaw as he tried to suppress his rising frustration at the situation. This couldn’t have come out at a worse time. “I’m not going anywhere, Nina.”

Her eyes flared dangerously and he was lucky she didn’t know that he’d arranged to have her stay in the room he often reserved whenever he spent his nights at Royal Courts. The knowledge would have either sent her into a rage or running out of the room, away from him. Given the vicious glare she was leveling him with, both could have easily become a reality.

“I don’t know how you found out about that,” he continued, “but my marriage only exists on paper. It’s been over for three years and the only thing keeping it from being officially over is a signature.”

It started innocently with a few young adult series like Goosebumps and Sweet Valley University. Then one day, the pretty purple cover of Amanda Quick's Seduction called to me and I've been reading romance ever since.

My passion for writing eventually came when I wrote two screenplays and a short story in the 8th grade.  My language arts teacher loved them and encouraged me to become a screenwriter. Instead I chose to write romance.

My first novella, Because You Love Me, was published in 2012 by Secret Cravings Publishing and I've been writing and publishing ever since.

I love weaving stories of love and passion. Though I enjoy romance stories of all kinds, I mainly write sensual, interracial romances with a hint of mystery and danger.

When not writing, I may be reading, researching, or conferring with my muse. But for now, I'm most likely cooking, dreaming, and cleaning after my two kitties.

Yours,
Lena ♥
What’s your biggest turn on?
Confidence, intelligence and a passion for life.

Does your ‘muse’ have a name and if so what is his/her name?
Hmm, she never told me her name but she’s a complete scatter brain so that’s no surprise…

If you couldn’t be an author, what would your ideal career be?
A chef. I love to cook and I love to eat—which I do a lot of anyway—but this way I could share my food creations with others.

Is the stuff you write about from experience or mostly imagination?
They’re a mash-up of my experience and my imagination… a little bit of this
with a lotta bit of that. ☺

What’s your greatest weakness?
A deliciously sinful piece of red velvet cake.

What do you think is the hardest thing about being a writer?
The writing...

Any tips for writing a great love scene?
Hmmm… I tend to write my love scenes in bed...it’s hard for me to get in the “mood” (with my characters) when I’m sitting at an upright, rigid desk. Writing a great love scene is all about getting in the mood. ☺
