Thunder Struck by Mimi Foster - Blog Tour






A Betrayed Bride . . . 

New York lawyer, Jordan Whitman, decides to get the hell out of Dodge rather than face the fallout from a cancelled wedding. A Bed and Breakfast in the tiny town of Nederland, Colorado, sounds like the perfect cure for a broken heart, but she finds that the country house of her dreams is actually a run-down manor that hasn’t been inhabited in almost three decades. 



A Confirmed Bachelor . . . 
Local contractor, Brandan Webb, can do anything . . . except relationships. The last thing he wants is a destructive marriage like his parents, but as he works with Jordan to restore the once-magnificent Victorian, his preconceived notions of commitment are challenged. Now the hard part will be convincing the gun-shy Jordan to be more than just friends, especially since he’s made it clear he doesn’t believe in love. 
An All-Enduring Love . . . 
When they find a hidden room containing century-old secrets, they trace the history of Madeline Manor. Embarking on a path to correct old wrongs, they discover a passion over a hundred years in the making, proving love can conquer all. 
A sensual, easy-reading Contemporary Romance with a touch of magical realism. Readers will enjoy the hot alpha male contractor, the erotic sexual tension, the history that weaves a tapestry of past with present, and explicit scenes created as he tries to convince his New York lover to stay in Colorado and fall in love.

Up Close and Personal SBB Interview with Mimi Foster:

In five words please describe your writing style:    
Easy reading steamy romantic escape

Top three favorite titles (books or movie

s):    
Lyon's Lady ~ Julie Garwood
Tell Me No Lies ~ Elizabeth Lowell
Mamma Mia!


Do your leading characters come from any place in particular?     
As far as location, in this series the men are all in the same business (home building) in the Denver/Boulder area; the women are all professionals from Denver and New York. As far as where do the ideas of the characters come from, it all started in my mind with the ending of book one (Thunder Snow) and the rest of the characters in the Thunder on the Mountain Series developed from there.

What do you do in your down time?       
Ah, yes, the elusive notion of down time . . . I am an active real estate agent with a large blog following, mother of five adult daughters and grandmother to five grandkids, help my husband with some remodeling, love photography and spend time shooting pics of the mountains, natural wonders, and events in my area, I do a lot of creative design online, and I love helping people. Sometimes I get to sleep.

Top five snacks while writing:
cheese sticks
wine
watermelon
popcorn
coffee


What's your writing process? 
Early, early morning writing, late afternoon writing ~ I get totally engrossed when I escape into my settings, and I turn off the phone and any distractions while I hunker down in a big, comfy chair. For my books, I start with a rough outline, always knowing the ending early, write a quick first draft, add more description in a second draft, and then edit and perfect scenes after the basic story is written.

What is the craziest thing you have ever done?    
Mile High Club

Is your next book going to be part of the series?
It is actually going to be about the ancestors who built the house where Thunder Struck (book two) and Thunder Storm (book three) take place. In both books, secret places and journals were discovered, telling some interesting tales. I became so enamored with daughter of the original owners (Willow) that I decided to write her story. There were some fascinating things going on in Nederland and Denver at the turn of the century, and they will impact the direction of her life. WILLOW'S SECRET is set in the early 1900s, and will be my first historical (but still steamy) romance.
