Blurb:
Beckett Montgomery is a well-known detective in the New York area. He takes his job seriously and has little time for anything else.

During an investigation in to a series of break-ins of an apartment building on 32nd St., he finds himself getting a little too involved. What had always in the past been his job, now felt as if it was so much more.

He can’t seem to let go of the image of the beautiful, scared blonder face. He found that protecting her became all he could think of. Whatever it took, not matter the cost, he would provide her the security she needed.

He assured himself he would remain professional, he would dedicate himself fully to the task at hand and never would he mix business with pleasure.

Yet with each passing second Beckett spent in the presence of Shanelle Kramer, he found that the need for her only grew. Her beauty alone made him weak in the knees and that was only the beginning.

He had never desired a woman more.

Never felt the need to conquer, or claim, but she was different.

Maybe just one taste would end his addiction for Shanelle?

But one taste was just a tease….
And he needed more, so much more.

Heat Paperback-2

A Limelight on Debut Author: Lu Groblebe

lulu

Q: When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

A: It was something I always had a knack for so it was always in the back of my mind growing up. It was never my first choice though. Not because I didn’t enjoy it, because I had other talents I wanted to pursue. Those were my priority. It was always an outlet for my angst as a teenager. I filled notebooks full of poetry and fanfiction stories a my old 80s model Mac too eventually. I didn’t take it seriously until adulthood. I’d say I was close to my mid twenties when I finally decided to go to college for writing. Even then though, I wasn’t confident I had a chance to make it. I’m an all or nothing type of person. I may eventually regret not trying but I’ll live with it. If I invest in something, I give it all I have and I don’t settle for anything but the top.


Q: How long does it take you to write a book?
A: It depends but I’ll admit I’m a slow writer. I have spells where I can whip out a chapter a day, but then I can go months without touching the book. I will say my speed has improved though since I entered the indie community. Having them just be there, on my friend’s list, knowing they’re watching me holds me accountable. It reminds me I have something I need to be working on, so I’ve been more proactive in doing it whereas before I never really had a reason. It became a case of, “I’ll finish it when I finish it.” I didn’t feel rushed to do something no one even knew or cared about. Being apart of the indie community really changed the game for me. Just being there, watching others talk about their books is motivation enough.

Q: What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
A: It really varies on my mood and personal life schedule. I do have other commitments. I run my own makeup distribution as a day job and I’m a mom. There are periods where I will write a chapter a day when I have the chance. There are others where, if I write anything, it isn’t more than a few paragraphs.

 

Q: What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
A: I’ve honestly never thought about it. When I plan to write, I plan to do so nonstop until I reach whatever goal I’ve set. I have a bad habit of getting distracted easily though so I enclose myself in a room alone, get a stock of drinks and snacks handy and I shut all notifications off on all devices. Otherwise I will be pulled away from writing when one from Facebook goes off. I loathe repeating words too much so I keep a dictionary site open in a new tab and I usually just let the story carry me in whatever direction it wants to go even if it goes against the outline I have. When you have the situation mapped out in front of you, it becomes different than what you preplanned in your head during the outlining phase.

Q: How do books get published?
A: Initially I intended to self published but I took a big chance and I was able to get a publishing deal with Bella Tulip Publishing who now publishes my work for me.

Q: Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
A: I spent almost ten years in text based roleplay that gave me a stock pile of ideas. That isn’t to say I don’t have or will never get new ones but it was an outlet for a long time that sparked my creativity.


Q: When did you write your first book and how old were you?
A: I got the idea for it in 2009 so I was 23. I didn’t start writing it though until 2012. I ended up shelfing the story for a later date when I went back into editing and found some large plots holes.


Q: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
A: Honestly, not much. I’m a big introvert, I’m easy going and easily amused so that combination makes me very boring. (Laughs) I’d go along with about anything that is suggested to me entertainment wise as long as it doesn’t scare me or is harmful. However, I don’t do much without a reason. I’m truly a workaholic. I spend most of my time either working on my writing/make business career or organizing and planning ahead for them. I like to karaoke on occasion but rarely do. I like to be at home alone but I don’t want to go out alone. What’s the fun in that? (Laughs)


Q: What does your family think of your writing?
A: Honestly, none of them care about it or are supportive, which is fine. It’s something I’ve grown used to and learned to accept. I’m not expecting a single family member to purchase any of my books.


Q: What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
A: Outlines are a helpful organizational tool for the beginning stages but the story rarely ever sticks to the outline as the book is being written. Either by your own choice or the characters’ it just doesn’t happen.


Q: How many books have you written? Which is your favourite?
A: Technically, two but only one is in the process of being published. However I’m already in the beginning stages of another novel series project I’m gonna be doubling up writing on while writing the follow up to my current WIP, but the new project will be under a new pen name.

Q: Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?
A: Make the dictionary your best friend.

Q: Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
A: I don’t have readers yet actually since the book I am waiting to release is my debut. I have heard from people who have beta read for me and enjoyed the story so much they have insisted on purchasing it when it is released finally.

Q: Do you like to create books for adults?
A: I consider myself a multi-genre author so I don’t like to rule anything out. I believe my career will lead me into every genre at some point down the line. By adult as in sexual? I know I can write erotica but it isn’t my forte. It isn’t what I’m best at or most comfortable writing, nor my preference. I do know that I can though. I’d say because of the level of profanity and the progressive speed of the relationship between the two leads my current WIP has in it, it’s more than likely considered “adult.”

Q: What do you think makes a good story?
A: Believable character development (arcs) and the unexpected. There are only so many ways an outcome can be used before it becomes predictable and bland. I try to incorporate that spirit into my own work.


Q: As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

A: A lot of things. At one point an ice skater, at another a singer, another a dancer, and in my early adult life, a police officer/detective.

All her life she has possessed what would appear to be the perfect life but for Camille de Clervaux appearances are most certainly deceiving and when all she believes turns out to be a lie, she has no idea how to cope.

Bumps in the night indicate her husband’s tastes for darker and harder delights, catapulting the scarlet beauty into a world of rough sex and dark fantasy. Where men who reek of power and control take all they want and never ask questions but with a new world of deviance opened to the vanilla beauty her lustful liaisons may cost her everything.

Jeremiah St. Clair has had a life filled with chaos, fighting and loss. As a former Army Ranger turned UFC fighter, Jeremiah has little patience or tolerance for anything but his career but when his eyes fall upon Camille his desire to protect her becomes overwhelming. With her sandwiched between two of the most influential men to his success he risks everything in pursuing her.
