Profile_pictureJen: Please help me give a Sondrae Bennett a warm welcome to Romancing the Book! Sondrae, will you share a short bio with us?
Sondrae: I love romance. I love reading romance, living romance, but I especially love writing romance. There’s no greater feeling than watching my characters come alive in each other’s arms. Most of all, I love giving my characters the happily ever afters they deserve, with a little necessary drama first.

My love of reading developed at a young age. When other girls went to the mall to buy clothes, I headed straight for the bookstore. Reading a good book still gives me such a rush, transporting me time and again into a different world. One of my favorite things is picking up a new book and sinking into the story, immersing myself in the emotions between the characters. To put myself in the place of the heroine, and fall in love with the hero, cursing the day I reach the last page because it means the end of my adventure. At least until I pick up the next book and fall in love all over again. I hope someday to inspire readers the same way my favorite authors have inspired me.

Publisher:  self-published
Pages:  185
Source: Book provided by Sondrae Bennett

 

 

He’ll do anything to protect his mate.

The last thing Laurie expects when she bumps into Max at the shifter convention is finding her mate. Certainly not that her mate can shift into a leopard. Wolves and leopards mix about as well as water and oil. Or should she say, dogs and cats. Mating him means leaving her family, her town, and the only home she’s ever known. But the possibility of a happily ever after is worth the risk, right?

Max couldn’t be happier with his brazen, feisty wolf, but returning home isn’t the welcoming affair he’d expected. In his absence, his brother has been attacked within the leap complex. Something must to be seriously wrong. Could someone be using his loved ones to get to him? When his worst fears prove true, his protective instinct goes into overdrive. Will keeping Laurie mean putting her in danger?

Sometimes fate needs a little hand…

Santa Claus is going to have a rough season… Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone. Abandoned by her family for her decision to keep her daughter Kristen, she has done a pretty good job for the last six years. Or she thought she had. That’s why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. She wants Santa to bring a Daddy. Delivering Daddies isn’t Santa’s bag.

But this Santa has a plan…

Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.

Building a house is easy. Building someone’s trust is a whole other story. But with a little helping hand, a little Christmas magic can make all the difference in the world.

Harry Norcliffe never wanted to inherit his beloved uncle’s title. The rigidity of the ton, the incessant reminders from his marriage-minded mama that he must settle down with a highborn lady and produce an heir and a spare: it’s all such a dreadful bore. So when his mother asks him to take part in a dancing competition, he patently refuses. The last thing he needs is another chore . . . until a beautiful, brilliant, delightfully tempting maid makes him rethink his position.

Most women would be over the moon to be pursued by a wickedly handsome-not to mention wealthy-duke like Norcliffe. But Lucy will not be any man’s trophy. She could use a friend, though, and what begins innocently soon ignites into desire. As Lucy tries to resist Harry’s scorching kisses, he makes an utterly irresistible offer. Enter the dance contest with him, and win a prize that could change her life forever . . . if falling in love doesn’t change it first.

Who Has a Best Seller?

Wild Marauders MC is a best seller! Well, for at least a minute. I’ve never been one to follow stuff like that but I found myself there yesterday, surprised to see that Wild Marauders MC was ranked #66 on Amazon’s best sellers list for erotica romance! Then it quickly dropped to #71, and as I write this it’s #83. How cool is that?

Do I have the right to say I’m a bestselling author? It seems almost everyone is today. At least according to the covers of their books. What defines a bestselling author? According to Wikipedia “Best-selling” refers to the estimated number of copies sold of all fiction books written or co-written by an author. Another article I found when I was looking up the definition of an Amazon bestselling author was in the Warner Coaching Newsletter. Interesting article. According to them, Amazon’s list is based on sales from its own site, which we all know they update every hour. So authors can claim they are Amazon bestsellers, but for only a short time.
