Welcome back to The Core. ALICE includes all four installments of Alice's story: Enticed, Seduced, Exposed, and Elevated!
The most exclusive, anything-goes, all-night dance club is alive with music, drinks, and unrivaled passion. As The Core’s top matchmaker, Alice is gunning for a promotion. One she’s got locked down as long as nothing disrupts her dance-floor dominating routine. But when the sexy mechanic Evan walks into her work and shakes her confidence in her matchmaking abilities, Alice can’t resist his good looks or his passionate ways. He sweeps her off her feet, enticing her with the adrenaline of his bike and the intensity of his attraction to her.
But Alice knows she can’t get close to anyone from The Core. And after learning the secrets in Evan’s past that drive his irresistible, never-hold-back personality, she’s not sure she can let him go without falling back on the dangerous patterns that haunt her own drug-addicted history. Admitting his part in the devastating loss of his brother nearly rips Evan apart.
Those pills locked in a drawer in her office grow more tempting with each passing day.
Now it’s Alice’s turn to let go of her fears and elevate herself to a new level... one filled with passion, confidence, and—she hopes—Evan’s reckless love.
Alice’s tale unfolds in this collection from The Core with a hot, emotional story that will tantalize new readers of the series and fans of The Core: Andee alike.
Q&A With Emily and Nola
1. Which one book will always stay with you?
Emily: Karen Chance’s TOUCH THE DARK has always stayed with me. It’s a really cool world with so much going on, I’ll never forget it.
Nola: There are far too many to list, but the first romance novel I ever read that made me say, “Yeah, I want to write about LOVE AND SEX” was Judith McNaught’s PERFECT.
2.When did you decide you wanted to become a writer?
Emily: When I was 11 I wrote Brad Pitt a poem. I can still recite all of it. It’s SO lame.
Nola: I was six when I wrote a book about a boy named Vincent who died from smallpox. Her sister cried and cried. And my parents were a little concerned, I think. But I was always good at explaining emotion, so that’s kind of what I do in books, now.
3. Fav book from your childhood?
Emily: If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. Not only did I have that book as a child, all my kids do, too.
Nola: In The Night Kitchen by far.
Emily: J.S. Scott and her Billionaire series.
Nola: Jacqueline Carey for the Kushiel series.
5.Are any of the characters you write about similar to you?
Emily: Andee would be close to my early adulthood. Life is about having fun.
Nola: Probably Three from JADED TOUCH. I don’t have her temper, but I’m kind of a floaty thinker and am extremely protective of those I love.
6.If you could kill one character from any book who would it be and why?
Emily: I would kill Andee and take her place in The Core.
Nola: Whoa, Emily, you’re dark. Although I might kill Evan and take his place in Alice. ;-) Wait, that came out wrong...
7.If you could be any paranormal being for a day which would you choose to be and why?
Emily: See Nola’s answer. I’ll be kicking ass at her side.
Nola: I always say I’d choose to be a vampire, but all I really want is like a shitload of wicked supernatural abilities. So I’ll say every creature in every book who can do that kind of stuff. ;-)
8.Last book you read?
Emily: Hunger of a Yeti by Tommy Donbavand. Hey, I got kids, lol.
Nola: The last book I read was DIVINITY by Michelle L. Johnson. Great, adult urban fantasy!
9.If you could live in a book which book would it be?
Emily: I would live in the Chronicles of Narnia. I play that shit in the clothing racks of Walmart.
Nola: I would live in the Star Wars universe. Yes, I would. LIGHTSABERS.
10. One thing not many people know about you is...
Emily: I am a horrible, horrible sleepwalker. I have left the house before. Many times.
Nola: I am a totally open book. But I don’t often tell people I can do a killer impression of Counselor Deanna Troi from Star Trek: TNG.
