Love interrupted - Blog tour


Logan Brooks and Andrew Eastin shared a once in a lifetime love. After losing her parents and overcoming many obstacles, she could not handle the possibility of losing him, too. She loved him enough to walk away, for both of their sakes.

As tragedy strikes again, Logan is on a downward spiral. Andrew knows she needs protection from herself, and he needs to love her through it, even if only from a distance.

When fate intervenes and allows them a second chance at love, will Logan and Andrew risk it? The Attraction is undeniable. The sexual tension, relentless. She is everything he has ever wanted. He sweeps her off her feet, renewing all that was lost.

Andrew promised her forever, but can words ever be enough? Can love prevail when life has different plans—bringing on more pain and emotions than imaginable? When lies and deceit corrupt the one thing sacred to them, plans will be ruined, promises will be broken, and hearts will be shattered.

What happens when the unknown threatens all of their dreams? Will Logan and Andrew survive their love, interrupted?

Author of the week interview ~ Molly McAdams

Author Interview by Claire Lamb with Author Molly McAdams

Hi Molly, Welcome, I hope you are well?

First of all can you please tell us a little about yourself and your books?

Well … I’m pretty random, and super awkward. But that’s okay because my fictional characters don’t judge me ;) Honestly, I’m just a normal girl who is lucky enough to spend every day in her characters’ world.

What inspired you to start writing?

I have these very vivid dreams, and they consume my mind like you wouldn’t believe. So I started writing them out (hoping to get them out of my head) and the next thing I knew I was expanding them and turning them into novels!

Who is your favourite author?

 Nicholas Sparks

 Why did you choose to write these types of books?

I just wrote what I love and what I know. The characters are the ones that decided to turn them into what y’all see now!

 What Book are you reading at the moment?

 I’m actually about to start TRUST IN ME by J. Lynn

Outside of writing what do you do to relax?

 Play with my fur-babies or watch movies with the hubby. We’re homebodies!

Where did the ideas for your books come from?
 My dreams J

Did you have any muses for any of your characters?

Ohhh yes. Haha. Charlie Keller is my Chase Grayson from TAKING CHANCES and STEALING HARPER. And Tyler Seielstad is the muse for Coen Steele in a novella I’m writing called CAPTURING PEACE. (Well, he kind of has to be the muse since the story is loosely based off his life … don’t worry, a couple of my dreams have been thrown in there.)

Do any of your characters remind you of anyone in your life?

Aside from Tyler/Coen? Lol! There are some of my characters that are a mix of people from my life, and I’ve even used my hubby as the idea behind Gage in FROM ASHES. Since I put so much of my real life in my books, a lot of my characters are bound to remind me of people in my life.

In your books can you relate to any of the circumstances the characters go through, are there any of your own experiences or total fiction?

Most of them are my own experiences. Like I said, I write what I know. Some of the events have been tweaked so they’re a little more dramatic, and some tweaked so they fit with the storyline … but you’d be surprised how much of my books have come from my life.

Are the names of characters in your novel important to you?

 Not for the most part, most of them are just the names that the characters wanted (I know that sounds weird!)

This question comes from Lynsey Sabin. Was writing stealing Harper and Taking chances as much of a crying fest as it was reading them?

Ahh, probably a lot more crying on my part than my readers’ part. When I wrote TAKING CHANCES, I cried for a solid two hours, and then spent the next week walking around like a zombie. STEALING HARPER wasn’t as hard all at once, but I think I cried more because I’m pretty sure I cried every day I spent writing it.

These next few questions come from Michelle Byrant. What made you pick Chase to be a tattoo artist?

He wasn’t at first, he just had his tattoos, but it just kept coming up in my mind, and when the lilies (that he tattooed on Harper) came up … I knew he had to be the one that did them.

Who could you picture to play Brandon, Chase and Harper if their story was made into a film?

Brandon … a mix of Dave Herman’s body and Channing Tatum’s face. Chase … Charlie Keller ;) Harper … Emma Roberts.

Was it deliberate that you came up with a love triangle?

 Well, in the dream that started TAKING CHANCES, the love triangle was VERY much already in place. So, I guess in a way.

Is the love triangle something you have personal experience of as it was so well written and seemed to have a personal sense?

 I was never involved in anything as intense as the relationships between Chase, Brandon, and Harper … and I’ve never cheated on anyone. But I’ve definitely had my own version of the situation.

Is Harper like you in any way?

Uh, no. I don’t think so anyway. Haha. It’s hard because there are conversations she has that I’ve personally had. But she’s not me.

Are the orange Lillies of any significance to you personally?

 They’re my absolute favorite flower of all time.

Brandon was my hero, he really dug her out of grief and loved her regardless, did you originally intend for that to happen?

No, he did that all on his own.

Does your family support you with your writing?

They are very happy that I get to do something I love.

What is your least favourite part in the writing progress?

 When I’m writing a book, and my characters decide they don’t feel like talking to me that day. It’s frustrating, and in a way, kind of terrifying.

 E reader or Paperback?

Err … BOTH! But I do love that you can have so many more books in one little device. So I guess, e-reader

 If you could pick another author to co-write with who would it be and why?

 AL Jackson, simply because I love her and love her writing. But I feel like that would be difficult to do (props to those authors that do it!) because we all have such different styles. I’m not sure I would be able to do it.

 Do you do anything when writing? (eg, listen to music, sit on floor ect)?

 Listen to music! Always. I can’t write with out it!

If you wrote a book about your life....what name would you call yourself and what 3 words would you use to describe your personality?

 The name I’m not sure I can answer … the way I choose names for characters is a really long process, so I’m not sure I can do that right now. Butttttt I would say: bubbly, outgoing, and awkward.

Ok easy one top five book boyfriends?

 Merrick from Shelly Crane’s COLLIDE series. Jared from COME TO ME QUIETLY by AL Jackson. Aiden from Jennifer L Armentrout’s COVENANT series. Deuce from Madeline Sheehan’s UNDENIABLE series. Caleb from Kristen Proby’s SAFE WITH ME.

Has there been a review that has stood out the most for you?

 It wasn’t a review, but I’ve had a couple women write to me about TAKING CHANCES. And the tragic parts of that book, had been something they’d gone through to a T. I will never forget those stories.

Which book - by another author - are you looking forward to the most?


Is there any traditions you do after finishing a book?

 I put on the clip from LOVE ACTUALLY where Hugh Grant dances, and I dance around my house.

Favourite Colour? Green
Favourite Food? Potatoes. Any way.
Night or Day? Night!
Favourite movie? That’s a difficult one. I’ll just say PITCH PERFECT
Favourite actor? Denzel Washington
Favourite Drink? Diet Dr Pepper
Tidy or Untidy? Ha. Ha. Ha. Uhhh … can I be a mix?

Thanks for being an absolute star and taking part in the Interview is there anything you would like to say to your fans?

 I absolutely adore each and every one of you! Y’all make my days so fun, I don’t know what I would do without you :)

Cover Reveal ~ A witches Curse ~ M.L. Stephens

  Hecate didn't dabble in dark magic. Watching her lover die at the end of another man's sword changed that. In a single act of vengeance, she turned her lover's killer into a werewolf and cursed him for eternity. It was A Witch's Curse to rival all others and it was her last act as a goddess.
   Drago despised being a werewolf. He spent thousands of years searching for an antidote, only to discover that the witch who cursed him, also had to cure him. Unfortunately, that witch died lifetimes ago. Undeterred, he continued to search. Two years ago he found Hecate's remains lying in a crypt hidden deep within the Louisiana Bayou. Today, he watched a coven of witches bring her back to life.
   He killed her lover. She damned him for all time. Can two souls who are destined to be eternal enemies, learn to forgive enough to live again?


M. L. Stephens Bio

     I'm always clicking away at the keyboard, but when I'm not, my family, two dogs, and a very peculiar cat keep me on my toes! There's never a boring moment at my desk!
    Besides my obvious love for coffee and all things caffeinated, I love to travel. The occasional tourist stop is fun, but I'm a back road kind of gal. Take me off the beaten path. I want to meet the ordinary people behind the culture.
    My crazy family includes a husband, four kids, two grandbabies, two dogs, and a cat. That's right! Life is totally insane! Now you understand why I write!
    Speaking of writing, I've been spinning stories around the campfire, since I can remember. Poetry was second nature, and as a teen and young adult, short stories were constantly being penned. I'm an avid reader, who loves almost all genres. Let's face it! A good read is a good read, regardless of whether it takes place in the future, the past, or with ghosts.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

I’ve always been an avid reader. Majoring in English Literature was a no brainer. Becoming a teacher and instilling my love for reading into my students was also a no brainer. I’ve spent the last ten years teaching and I’ve loved (mostly) every minute of it. When I was home on maternity leave for my third son, I discovered a new genre that sparked my creativity. My passion for writing sprang from my love of reading and once I knew I had a story to tell, I couldn’t wait to get it out there. I only hope that my readers enjoy reading my story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
