courageous, powerful and lithe. They control their ponies with subtlety and intuition, which are just two of the qualities I look for in my heroes. Add a dose of humour, loyalty, strong principles, and a healthy serving of intelligence, and we’re almost there. I like a man who can turn his hand to most things too.
With top polo ponies worth millions
of dollars, and riders needing a string of ponies in order to play at the top level, the players or their sponsors need to be fabulously wealthy, and that’s a world I love to explore in my books.
The four Acosta brothers and their sister Lucia have taken me on a roller coaster ride, sweeping me into their glamorous world and giving my emotions a real work out along the way. Tough heroes with flaws and heroines with unsuspected strengths are my ideal raw material. I can honestly say that this series has been the best fun ever to write.
The youngest brother, Kruz Acosta, is arguably the hardest of all the brothers. A veteran of Special Forces who now handles the Acosta Family’s security, Kruz is less than amused when photographer Romy Winner crashes his brother’s wedding. But Romy is on a special mission of her own, and when she can’t be frightened away, things get heated. And I mean hot.
Romy is a strong, independent woman who must find even more strength to deal with the consequences of her explosive meeting with Kruz, while Kruz is forced to expand his skill set to deliver a baby that simply won’t wait.
What are the top qualities you look for in a man? I have a signed copy of The Shameless Life of Ruiz Acosta, the first Acosta Brothers book, to give away so don’t hold back! Share your wildest fantasies with us. Or, if you prefer, tell us about your man and why you love him.
I can’t wait to hear from you.
