a mom and wife and writer. We have two adorable (though a little crazy) kids,
ages seven and three and we live near Toronto. I’m an Interior Designer/Small
business owner…and as of last year a published Romance Writer JI write contemporary romance for Entangled,
Indulgence.THE RANCHER’S SECOND CHANCE
is my fourth book for Entangled, Indulgence.
Who is your favourite author?
I have so many, it’s impossible to pick just one! My
all-time favourite historical romances were written by Judith Mcnaught so I’ll
go with her!
Do you listen to music while you write?
Yes! I always set up a playlist before I start a new book.
It really helps draw me into the manuscript right away. When I receive
revisions for that book (by that point I’ve started another book usually) I
just load that playlist and it brings me right back to the mood/tone of the
book. I have all my playlists on my website!
What type of music?
It really depends on the book. Sometimes it’s bands that I
listen to all the time (Mumford & Sons are usually on all my playlists ;-))
and sometimes it’s just a random song that is absolutely perfect for the mood
of the book.
What do you do to relax?
Drink a glass (or two ;-) of red wine! Usually my husband
and I have a night during the week where we watch our DVR’d shows and have some
wine. We are also trying to get out more, but that all depends on whether or
not we can convince my parents to babysit ;-).
Tell us about your book...
It’s about second chances and trust. Cole Forrester a strong
man with a very tender side. He’s a widower and he’s closed himself off to
finding love again. In comes Melanie Simms, good friend to his little sister.
Melanie is a woman who has it all together on the outside, but she’s running
from a past that continues to haunt her. The last thing Melanie wants is to be
married-especially to a man of power and authority. But Cole is a man that has
a softer side that allows her walls to come down and let him in. When their
future is threatened Melanie hopes that he chooses her and the love they've
Both these characters are so real and are dealing with the
kind of pain that many people can identify with. Because of that, it made me
want to give them the best kind of HEA.
Victoria's latest release... The Rancher's Second Chance
Widowed rancher Cole Forrester is all about running his family's ranch and guarding his heart. The last thing he's looking for is love, but when his little sister can't make it home to handle some of her wedding details, he's forced to entertain the event planner, Melanie Simms. Melanie is everything he's not even remotely interested in: she's high-society, complicated, and high maintenance. But when he's stranded with her at his remote cabin in the Colorado mountains, he realizes he's seriously underestimated her. She's hiding something about her past from him, but despite everything, he finds himself falling for the last woman he ever expected, and the first woman to make him want to give his heart and risk everything...
