Today we have Scarlett Jade with her motivation for writing Saving Grace, (Wild Rose series book 1.) Scarlett's latest release is a new adult contemporary and has some great reviews. Enjoy!
Saving Grace was an idea I got from a dream, about a student falling in love with her professor. The forbidden aspect of falling in love with someone you shouldn’t just caught my attention, and I had to write it.
Grace is my heroine, and she’s naïve, a little awkward and unsure of herself. She’s a lot like I used to be, studious, innocent, and a “good” girl. That was secured for her by her size and geek status in high school… but college is a whole different place, and she realizes that first thing when she meets her roommate, Christina.
Christina is definitely a “bad” girl, and she’s mischievous, sassy, and wise to the world. I think they’re a perfect complement to each other. The preacher’s daughter and the wild child. Christina pushes her out of her shell, and Grace reluctantly flounders out into deeper water.
When they go to a bar, Grace meets a man who she can’t believe seems to be interested in her. One kiss was all it took and she was putty in his hands. What she doesn’t know is the man she’s kissing at the bar is her professor.
The story has some twists and turns along the way, and plenty of people seem to be willing to sabotage a fledgling romance. Grace has to find herself, and that’s the scariest part of all. Life isn’t always what it seems.
Reviewers are saying to buy it first thing in the morning, hang the Do Not Disturb sign, order pizza for dinner, and they’re using the hashtag #ILoveProfessorDrakeStone.
I hope you fall in love with Drake Stone too!
Blurb for Saving Grace
The rule was simple—don't fall in love with a student. Drake had never had that problem—not until he met the buxom brunette in the bar. Grace was one of a kind, virginal but far from chaste. When she wanted him to teach more than history, he was left with a choice that could ruin them both.
Grace was always the good girl, until she met her wild best friend, Christina, who pushed her out of her shell. She fell head over heels for the sexy, young college professor, but when everything shattered around her, she was left with figuring out who she really was. Her journey led her somewhere she never imagined, but along the way she learned that even the wildest roses have to put down roots in a place they can call home.
