Author Spotlight & Giveaway: Marina Adair!

 During February’s blogaversary, get to know the women who write the romances I fall in love with.  They have all graciously offered to give away books! Here’s a list of fun questions I asked these wonderful ladies and their responses. Some answers were quite interesting and surprising. You’ll see!  Comments and questions are welcome!
Today’s featured author is the lovely Marina Adair!
1. What genre do you write?

 Contemporary romance

2. Coffee or tea lover?


3. Name one thing on your bucket list.

Spending a summer volunteering at Best Friends Sanctuary.

4. Do you have pets?

Two crazy cats named Awesome Bob and Suki

5. When I wake up every morning I…shut off the alarm and give myself five more minutes

6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.

A guitar pick that Keith Urban held. And 7 storage boxes of New Kids on the Block collectibles.

7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?

I love concerts and travel. Oh, and animals. I could spend all day with kittens and furry babies.

8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?

I truly believe that romance is everywhere, all around us, you just have to look for it. So I write stories that explore everyday romance, from the secret looks to the grand gestures, with the goal of helping my readers fall back in love with romance.

With a kidney transplant behind her, Avery Adams is determined to channel her inner adventurer and explore everything life has to offer. Only problem is, the closest she’s ever come to a real-life adventure was sixth-grade science camp. So to seize the summer in her rustic Sierra Nevada town, she takes a job as a guide at the local adventure lodge. But Avery doesn’t realize her biggest challenge will register at six-plus feet of rugged good looks and alpha-male charm.

As a member of the Sequoia Elite Mountain Rescue team, Tyson Donovan has made a life out of cheating death and rescuing weekend warriors from the treacherous terrain. “The world is my home” is more than just a motto; it’s what scares off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. When his dad’s health lands the family’s adventure lodge in serious danger of going up in flames, he moves home—and quickly remembers why he left. Until he meets Avery, the irresistible new guide who makes him want to stay.

Tyson gives the inexperienced Avery a lesson in romance that her books could never teach her. And with her undeniable spirit for life, Avery shows Tyson the healing power of love. But with one misstep, everything comes crashing down, and they’ll both have to take the biggest leap of all—into the kind of adventure that lasts a lifetime.

  1. I cant tell you how much I love her unique item answers. The guitar pick! LOL Love it. And the boxes of NKOTB stuff!! My son and daughter in law went to see them when they did their latest return tour. They had a great time and bought the new cd too. I wonder if Marina went to see them too?

  2. Ok, first, I LOVE Marina like whoa. I can’t get enough of her books. ❤

    As for the bucket list, I'd love to visit the far Asia at some point: China, Japan, South Korea. I'd love to witness such a rich and different culture from mine.

    Thanks for the chance!
