Make Someone Happy -- Author Sophia Knightly

My motto for 2016 is…”Make someone happy.”

Thank you for having me on your blog today, Michelle! In my personal and professional life, I’ve found that I’m happiest and feeling most fulfilled when I can do something to make someone happy. And that brings me to the reason I love writing romances. Not surprisingly, it fits in neatly with my motto for 2016. My greatest wish as a writer is to entertain readers with a story that will make them feel good at the end, one that exalts the human spirit and the belief that love is the most powerful, exciting, healing emotion of all.

We live in times that are challenging in so many ways. One way to escape the everyday grind is to indulge in a book that takes us on an emotional journey with a satisfying happily-ever-after for the characters we begin to root for from the first page.

It’s exciting to create flawed but loveable characters, thrust them on a journey of self-discovery and watch them fall in love—often against their will. Such is the case with Isabel and Linc’s love story in Wooed by You. I loved writing this book because Detective Linc Heller is a big, tough cop who is man enough to show his tender side when it comes to wooing the reluctant Isabel, who has valid reasons to push him away. The push and pull between these two stubborn characters was sometimes amusing, often frustrating, but ultimately hot and heartwarming! I hope you will enjoy the latest addition to my Tropical Heat Series in Wooed by You, the book that precedes all others in the series. 

Wooed by You blurb:

His hot pursuit was her undoing... 

Single mom Isabel Garcia's blood runs cold when an innocent dig in her garden unearths evidence of her late husband's criminal activity, one she knew nothing about! With her heart in her throat, she calls narcotics detective Linc Heller, and faces another shock-- her wild attraction to the hot detective.

Yet Linc's perilous profession makes him unsuitable as a potential husband and stepfather. Protecting her little daughter from further heartache, Isabel vows to avoid Linc. But the alpha lieutenant is determined to woo the elusive Latin beauty and show her some risks make life worth living.
