- What’s the most romantic thing your hero ever did for your heroine?
Rachelle has had to fight off the stigma of having her father put in jail for murder. Her mother suffers with depression from her circumstances. When along comes Gage Fontaine, treasure seeker extraordinaire, to Stepping Stones Island, Maine. Gage recognizes their rock bottom and sets out to free them just as he frees treasure from the ocean floor.
- Do your hero and heroine have a favorite romantic restaurant?
Who needs a restaurant when you have a sleek yacht to dine out under the stars every night?
- What is your hero’s favorite romantic vacation destination?
Wherever the next treasure is. But seriously, as romantic as treasure seeking sounds, it is hard work to research, plan, acquire the rights to dive if you even find the sunken ship at all. But the traveling to the next destination can be quite a romantic setting, as long as no one is chasing you in your wake.
- What simple gesture does your hero do that melts your heroine every time?
Smiles. Gage is all smiles, so much so his diving mask comes unstuck from his face when he is under water because of his laugh lines. That could be a potentially perilous situation if it happens at a most inopportune moment.
- What simple gesture does your heroine do that melts your hero every time?
Gage’s favorite treasure to hunt for is emeralds. Rachelle’s eyes sparkle like the radiant jewels themselves. Saying no to her is nearly impossible when she bats those green eyes at him.
- Who is most romantic, your hero or your heroine?
Gage’s whole persona has romantic written all over him, but who cares if he has no one to share his adventurous life with him? If only Rachelle wasn’t a landlubber.
