"You were right when you said you felt this story is tight--it is, and to that I would like to add terrific! I sped through this one! The relationship between Alice and Carlos is just delicious. You play on their differences so well--the uptight WASP heiress and the sensual Latin lover, background, education, age gap and so forth--and convey a great sense of longing and tension between them. All of this makes for a wonderfully sparky, sexy and pacy read."
--Tessa Shacott, former Mills & Boon Editor
From the Author
I'm so so so excited to share my newest Blueberry Lane novel with the world - I hope you all love Carlos and Alice as much as I do!!
One thing I did want to share...
I am not Latino. Though I have lived in Mexico (Colima) and Bolivia (Cochabamba) and traveled extensively in the Caribbean and South America, I am not ethnically Latino.
But I want to assure all of my readers that I went to great lengths to make the character of Carlos Vega as accurate as possible. I never want for my characters to be caricatures; I want them to feel real. And I decided that the only way to make a Puerto Rican person feel real on paper is to ask for help from real Puerto Rican people.
To my cultural and language team who read this book in its earliest stages and again before publication, graciously offering suggestions for making Carlos as genuine as possible, I am humbled by your dedicated and generous help. Wilmari Carrasquillo-Delgado, Veronica Del Valle, Linda Vega and Jennifer Nieves, muchas gracias por su ayuda. I could not have written this book without your kind help.
I hope the world falls madly in love with the scorching hot macho Boricua man we've created together! ️
