#TNTConfidential Character Interview with Cindy from The Perfect shoot by Lea Bronsen @LeaBronsen

Morning my lovelies! Today I've got quite a treat for you (pun intended *grin*) Lea Bronsen has come in with her lead character, Cindy, from The Perfect Shoot (Hot Model Mine) and I've interviewed the latter.  Please give them a warm welcome!

 When Andrea Johnson, writing as author Cindy Vega, signed up for a Meet & Greet with the cover model of her latest book, she didn’t expect sparks to fly. Yushka is dangerously good-looking and too young for her. But their connection is instantaneous, and during a photo shoot with the two, the photographer picks up on their growing attraction. Seeing the potential for the cover photo of the century, he decides to push their comfort limits...

Add it to your Goodreads list!\

1.      Welcome Andrea or should I say, Cindy? Can you tell us a bit about your writing?
Hi Elyzabeth! First off, thanks for having me here. I’m not used to being in the spotlight, but I’ll answer your questions the best I can. So, my writing. I’m an erotic romance writer, but you know how it is – some say it’s too sweet and romantic to be labelled erotic, and some say it’s too pornographic to be romance. *shakes head*
2.      Do you believe in love?
Quite honestly, I’m not sure. I’ve been let down many years ago, at a pivotal time in my life—learning I was pregnant—and since then, I’ve found it hard to believe such a thing as love was in the cards for me. I’m nearing my forties now, do I dare give my heart to someone and risk being hurt again? I feel so fragile, need time to make up my mind.
3.      I’ve heard that you met the cover model of your latest book… How is Yushka?
Oh, he is… *sighs* One, he’s the hottest thing you can imagine on legs. When you see him, you get this heart attack moment where you forget to breathe and your body fills with a certain kind of heat… ahem. Second, he’s the sweetest, gentlest guy I’ve met in a looong time—meaning genuinely attentive and caring. You just gotta love a person like that. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s super sharp and unusually mature for his age!
4.      How was the photo shoot? What was your favorite moment of the experience?
How it was? You’ll have to read my book to find out, lol. Recapping the events would put me in a state of… uhm… But if I have to be honest with myself, I’ll admit my favorite moment of all was the second photo shoot. They placed me atop a piano with the most gorgeous hunk of a man between my legs, and he was pushing his deliciously hard body against me, wrestling me and…in the end, delving his tongue deep in my mouth. God, just thinking about it… *fans myself*
5.      Now, how do you feel about dating a younger man? And if the roles were reversed?
I’m not comfortable with the situation. He says he doesn’t care that I’m older, but our fifteen-year difference bothers me. I have two sons practically his age—how will they react? And will Yushka still be attracted to me in a few years, when I get visibly older? As for the roles being reversed, I could just as easily be attracted to a gray fox. But honestly, no one would even ask the question. That’s just how society works.
6.      What’s one thing you like about Yushka, besides his good looks? *grin*
His ability to make me feel special and beautiful. It’s the way his eyes warm when he looks at me, the way he smiles, teases me, and plays the goof to make me smile back, and it’s the way his body…ahem…reacts when he holds me tight. He’s truly irresistible, in every sense of the word. 
7.       What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Being with someone who respects and cherishes you no matter your age or what you look like.
8.      What is your motto?
It’s okay to bow in a storm, just get up and trudge on.
9.       Tomorrow is Halloween, do you have any plans?

No, but I look forward to all the small scary people who come knocking on my door!
Quickie questionnaire:
Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate (that’s almost Yushka’s tan, lol)
Coffee or tea? Can’t decide. I want coffee in the morning, and tea in the evening
Hottest thing a person can say to you: Kiss me
Boxers or briefs? I don’t care as long as it’s sexy
Favorite position: Oh, what a question! Um, does “piano” say enough?
Craziest thing you’ve done for love: Get up on a stage in front of hundreds of people to declare I’m in love with someone. Just remembering that moment, my heart palpitates!


I like my reads fast, hot, and edgy, and strive to give my own stories the same intensity. After venturing into dirty inner-city crime drama with my debut novel Wild Hearted, I divide my writing time between psychological thriller, erotic contemporary romance, and dripping erotica.
I love to hear from my readers! Send a mail to or meet me on:

You've just been waiting for that excerpt, haven't you? 

An assistant calls Yushka’s name. Bare-chested, the Asian hunk appears from a group of models, strolls to the spotlights, and waits in front of the camera with the confident stance of a professional.
The whole place quiets as

Something akin to worry gnawed at his gut for the witch Ariadne was a dangerous foe. Hundreds of years old, her power was similar to that of a lesser god and she could create great damage if she wished. He glanced at the rolling green fields around him, and the thought of the battle that would soon ensue, saddening him. The animals that had not fled already would certainly run as soon as they smelled the blood. Sighing, he lifted his gaze. His eyes widened as he caught sight of the person trotting toward him.  Bereft of helmet or armor the witch rode with confidence, her golden tresses billowing behind her like the seductive veil of a bride to be. Her gown, as those of her practice accustomed to wear, was black as the night, a sharp contrast to the pale skin visible beneath.

#Friday Happy Author Hour! Share a drink with your favorite #Authors! #HappyHour #writing Today with Anne Lange @Anne_Lange

 Whether you're an author or not, you've heard it before: All authors drink. 

But what do they drink? 
I don't know about you guys but by the time Friday rolls around I'm ready for a drink! Anne Lange has just the thing today: Sour Green Apple Martini! mmmmmm Sour Green apples are my favorite fruit. Read on to discover how to make this yummy concoction!

The Sour Green Apple Martini

By Anne Lange

 A few years ago, during a business trip, myself and a couple of colleagues decided to hit a Vodka bar.  We had nothing better to do ;)

Let’s just say it was one of the best nights, because I was introduced to the vodka martini. Never had one before. I didn’t know what I was missing. You know, they go down…reaaaaalllll easy.  And you can have one anywhere. They’re fantastic by the pool, as a pre-dinner drink, with friends. They’re an all season drink. Just so versatile. :)
At this Vodka Bar we had martinis of various flavors, appetizers and mini sandwiches that had vodka in their somewhere and then some pierogies in a divine cherry vodka sauce. And of course we finished it off with some martini shooters.  

Then we went to a jazz bar and had more martinis.  There, I had my first sour green apple martini. OMG.  I fell in love. I can’t really tell you how many I had. I’ll just say, the next day was little rough. Okay, more than a little rough. But it was well worth it.  This fabulous little drink can be gone in seconds, it’s that good. Which, I guess accounts for the rough following day. 

There are plenty of ways to make this little baby, so I thought I’d share three of the variations with you.  

Apple Martini #1 recipe
·         2 oz citrus vodka
·         ½ oz Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps
·         ½ oz orange liquer
·         ¾ oz fresh lemon juice
Assemble all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with a slice of apple, and serve.

Apple Martini #2 recipe
·         1 oz Smirnoff Green Apple Twist Vodka
·         1 oz Melon Liqueur
·         1 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well. Strain into cocktail glass, and serve.

Apple Martini #3 recipe
·         1 oz Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps
·         1 oz Smirnoff Apple Vodka
·         1 oz Apple Juice

Chill a champagne or cocktail glass. Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Strain into glass and serve.

About Anne:

Shoes are her addiction, but books are her passion.  Anne Lange grew up with a love for reading. If you take a close look, she’s got either a book, her Kindle or her Kobo—maybe all three—tucked into her bag or a pocket when she leaves the house. You know, just in case there’s time to sneak in a chapter or ten.  Anne reads many genres of romance, but prefers to write sexy stories, often with a dash of humor, and usually with a side of those sinful pleasures your mom never told you about. 

Oh, and always a happily ever after. 

While embarking on this wild journey of becoming a romance author, Anne juggles a full time job and a family. Not always successfully. Who needs a clean house every day?  And what’s wrong with cereal for dinner? She lives in Ontario, Canada with her wonderfully supportive husband, three awesome kids who are growing up way too fast, and Rocky the bearded dragon.
