Games of Fire Synopsis



Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred of her. Since his migration into the house next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn’t sure whether she wants to toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire,everything either has ever known will be shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.

Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?




Excerpt 


“I won’t bite,” he said, probably meaning it as a joke.

“Oh if only that were my only problem,” she sighed under her breath.

“What?”

She shook her head. “Nothing.”

She took his hand, slipping her icy fingers through his. The electric sparks tore a fiery path down the length of her arms, nearly melting the ice beneath their feet. She shivered involuntarily and felt his fingers flex.

“All right?” Had his voice always been so husky?

She dampened her lips. “Yeah…” The single word died in her throat as she was pulled towards him. Her heart tripped. Her lungs stilled. The heat of his body rushed over her with the subtle scent peppermint, leather, spices and smoke.

A soft mist blew around them. Raindrops glistened in his hair, shimmering under the pale glow of the light post. His eyes were shadowed beneath wispy fringes, but the silver in them glinted like pools of liquid mercury. Her breath caught. It must have made a sound because his fingers tightened. His shaky exhale caressed her flushed face.

“This,” he whispered so quietly she almost didn’t hear him. “Is why you are so bad for me.”









Author Bio


Airicka Phoenix is the best-selling author of the Touch Series with short stories in Whispered Beginnings: A Clever Fiction Anthology and Midnight Surrender Anthology. When she's not hammering away at the keyboard, she can be found banishing pirates or crawling through the attic looking for lost treasure with her kids. She loves baking, gardening and reading. She also likes to travel and take pictures of everything she comes across. When asked, Airicka describes herself as a sarcastic basket case that has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate, old movies and really bad jokes. She loves to laugh, make friends and write. If she could have one wish granted, it would be to spend one day as a fly-on-the-wall inside Stephen King's mind. If she could have two wishes granted, she would ask for a castle dedicated entirely to her overwhelming collection of books.

Author Interview:


Hello Cathrine!


Thank you so very much for having me stop by. It’s wonderful to meet you and your lovely readers!



       What was the very first book idea you had, did you write it and did it get published?

I did write my very first book idea. It’s on my hard drive right now, but no, it’s not published and may never see the light of day… ever! Lol



       How long does it take you to typically write a novel?

Typically, it takes me about a month and a little bit to write a full novel. That’s not including edits and rewrites.



      If asked to review a novel, and you didn’t like it at all, would you?

a)      Do a warts and all review and hold back nothing – a total slaughter

b)      Say as little as possible, only voicing a few criticisms with a dash of positivity

c)        Talk to the author first and express your opinions/findings in a helpful manner
  d) Keep it as vague as possible and think discretion is the better part of valour, as you hate to be unkind


I’m a c kind of person. If there’ s absolutely nothing positive I can say about the book (which is very unlikely) I will always message the author privately and let them know why and give some helpful advice if I can.





     Do you have any input into the cover design of your novels?

I actually create my own covers. I have a design business, Airicka’s Mystical Creations, where I help other authors with their covers as well.





       Do you have any advice for newbie authors just starting out?

1)      Write for yourself first and foremost. 
2) You can’t please everyone and 
3) positive or negative, everyone has an opinion, but if you follow rule 1, you’ll do just fine.



       Who is your favourite author of all time and if you could meet him/her, what would you say?

Stephen King and I would probably say something witty and clever and suave like HOLY FREAKING CRAP! Followed by a series of incoherent rambling, mumbling and stammering.



      Out of the following places to get inspiration, which one would you choose & why:

a.       Deserted Island

b.      Sprawling Megatroplis

c.       Magical Forest

d.      Outer Space

I was told that when in doubt, always go magical forest. I’m picking door C. Imagine all the possibilities!



       Are you a pre-planning plotter or a go with flow writer?

I am a planner… until my characters run rampant and do their own thing. But I do have a very thorough outline of the plot and characters. And I do try to stay as close to that outline as possible.



   Are you working on anything new right now, if so, can you share the details with us?

I am working on finishing Touching Fire, book #2 of the Touch Series. In this book, Fallon and Isaiah meet Fallon’s father and discover why Garrison wants Fallon so badly and why her blood is so dangerous.



Thank you once again for having me visit! It was wonderful to meet you and your readers! Hope we can do it again!



Best wishes


Airicka

Well I hope you enjoyed Airicka's interview and her latest novel looks and sounds totally amazing, and after the success of Touching Smoke, this one is a sure fire hit!

Until next time, live it large!

I have really enjoyed this series.  Thrilling, gripping, heart pounding action all the way.  I'm also a little disappointed that it's the last book in the series, but then, all good things must come to an end at some point.

So if you're looking for a great read, try this.

See you on the next Friday Book Feature
