I’m so excited to be sharing not only an author interview with author Amy Jarecki but one awesome giveaway!!! If you’re unfamiliar with Amy Jarecki you are in for a treat!! Her next release ‘The Highland Chieftain’ just made my heart melt and skyrocketed Dunn MacRae to one of my top book boyfriends!
First, let’s do a fun Q&A
What makes a book a “beach read” for you?
It has to be good! Books with interesting characters, a splash of humor, and well-developed plots will grab me every time.
Beach or pool?
I have a pool in my backyard. Love fun in the sun without sand in my pants!
How many stories do you work on at the same time?
Usually no more than two. I prefer one, but often I’m editing one while drafting another.
What summer drink would you pair with the heroine or hero from your book?
In The Highland Chieftain , Dunn and Mairi enjoy wine. I think they might have loved a crisp Riesling.
What character from your latest release would you want to hang out with this summer?
Definitely Dunn MacRae. There is nothing more romantic than a Scottish Highlander who carries a sword at his hip. He might be a bit rough around the edges and a total alpha male, but his intensity is what makes him sexy. Who wouldn’t fall in love with rugged warrior, who only has eyes for you, would protect you with his life, and speaks with a deep, lilting Scottish burr? *swoons*
Lastly, do you have a summer memory that you’d like to share?
A Summer Memory with my Dad:
When I was a kid we drove to Montana every summer to spend a couple weeks at my aunt’s lakeside cabin. I’m an early riser and love to fish, but I could never take a fish off the hook because they were too slimy. One morning when I was about nine I woke particularly early and headed down to the dock with my pole. If you’re an angler, you know that sunrise is the ideal time and fish are biting like maniacs. In five minutes I had a ten-pound trout on the line and battled to reel him in, while screaming, “Dad! Dad! Dad!”
My father flew out of the cabin wearing only white boxers, barely touching the ground as he ran, blindly shoving his glasses on his face. When he reached the dock he gaped at me with the most baffled expression, his glasses cockeyed. “What happened?” he demanded, looking rather angry, “I thought you were drowning.”
When I held up the fish and asked him to take it off the hook, I think it took a great deal of restraint not to push me into the lake.
Dads…they’re such awesome heroes!
