He was a nameless guy in a bar–a man Grace couldn’t get out of her head…

A week later, she came home to find him sweaty and shirtless with a tape measure in hand, remodeling her loft. As a Parker-King, she’s not allowed to want someone like Noah Dalton. She’s sick of her life, though. Sick of the rules of being a Parker-King. She wants something more, even if it isn’t forever. Somewhere in history there was that one time where hot, no-strings-attached sex didn’t end badly, right? Finding comfort in the arms of a former SEAL is easy, not falling for one . . . not so much.

Noah left the military and moved to New York for one reason: his daughter. Not for some uptight businesswoman–a Manhattan elitist. So when Grace offers him the kind of relationship that no hot-blooded man can turn down, he should say no. And when her seemingly put-together life spins out of control, and his instincts to protect and save kick in, he should turn away. But he doesn’t.

Can two people from different worlds really live in the moment, knowing they’re on borrowed time, or is someone bound to get hurt?

Extract:

A splash of light shines beneath the door at the end of the hall. I swear I didn’t leave anything on this morning.

I touch the knob, a slight tremble moving down my arm and to my hand as I think back to the hotel in Greece.

My stomach tightens and burns, and my pulse skates to a faster speed. I slowly twist the handle, but my mind is protesting, begging me to run. My body is stiff and my muscles taut.

Run!

I should’ve run that night in Athens. Why’d I open that door? Why am I opening this one?

I inhale a deep breath, holding it—and it’s like the air in the room cocoons me and I can’t exhale.

I’m expecting the worst. Athens, part two. Another incident.

But once the door is wide-open, I see a man crouched over a wooden beam on the floor, a tape measurer in hand. The guy’s shirtless. His tanned, muscled back has a slight sheen of sweat down his spine.

He’s got to be part of the new remodel team I hired last weekend.

I bring a hand to my chest and try to calm down. To get my mind off Greece and back in New York.

“Who the hell are you?”

He’s a carpenter, right? I just want confirmation.

My hand goes inside my purse, and I search for my phone just in case I need to call the cops.

The man releases his tape measure and it retracts and snaps, falling with a thud to the floor. He slowly lifts his hands as if he can actually see me and I have a gun on him.

He rises to his feet. “Sorry. I work for Bella. She gave me the key.” He turns toward me.

My lungs deflate as if they’ve been poked with a needle, and I’m losing oxygen fast. It’s not because of Athens.

It’s because it’s…him.

Military Guy. Unless I’m wrong about him being military.

I’m never wrong.

“You.” His brows pull together and his hands fall to his sides.

I remove my hand from my purse and drop the bag to the floor. I’m more comfortable now that I know the shirtless guy isn’t some psychopath but in fact a construction worker.

But it’s the hot guy from the bar, which is still pretty damn bad.

“You’re Grace? I wasn’t expecting—”

“And what were you expecting?” I fold my arms and remain standing just inside the living area. He’s near the wall of windows overlooking the city on the other side of the room.

“I guess I pictured Grace as someone twice your age with a lot of cats.” A sheepish grin sweeps across his face.

I open my palms and glance to the left then right. “Do you see any cats?”

His smile deepens.

“And does my name sound old?” Maybe it does. The hyphen doesn’t help.

“Well, I don’t think that anymore. Now looking at you—Grace fits.”

I’m not sure what that’s supposed to mean, and I don’t bother to ask. I blink and try to figure out what the hell is going on.

“Are you stalking me?” I ask instead, though I know this must be crazy stupid luck that he’s now remodeling my loft. Of the millions of people in the city…

Brittney Sahin began writing at an early age, with the dream to be a published author before the age of 18. Although academic pursuits (and, later, a teaching career) interrupted her aspirations, she never stopped writing—never stopped imagining.It wasn’t until her students encouraged her to follow her dreams that Brittney said goodbye to Upstate New York in order to start a new adventure in the place she was raised: Charlotte, North Carolina. Here, she decided to take her students’ advice and begin to write again.In 2015, she published her first novel, The Safe Bet. When she is not working on upcoming novels, she spends time with her family. She is a proud mother of two boys and a lover of novels, coffee, and the outdoors.

Silenced MemoriesI’m really excited to have the opportunity to interview Brittney Sahin. She recently released her debut novel Silenced Memories with a second on its way. This is a great book to curl up with during the cold nights. Brittney brought strong writing, good character development, and a fun plot to her readers. It’s always great to see the success of good writers!

Without further delay, here’s Brittney!

Brittney, thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to interview with me. First, congratulations on the success of your novel. I know it’s exciting when you see your hard work rewarded. I’ll jump right in with the questions.

Me:  Where did the idea for Silenced Memories come from?

Brittney: Believe it or not—part of my book stemmed from an idea I had back when I was a kid (in regards to the female character) . . . the other half –well, I have no idea where I get my ideas to be honest –they sort of creep up on me!!

Me:  What was your favorite character to write in Silenced Memories? Why?

Brittney: Michael Maddox. It’s fun to create the ideal man for your protagonist (at least ideal for her)!

Me:  Who designed your cover?

Brittney: EBOOKLAUNCH.COM

Me:  Do you write to music? Quiet?

Brittney: Both. I like to have dance music on (low) in the background while I work. I write faster I think.

Me:  What one item do you need to write? Special mug? Pen? Pillow? Cat? Pup? (I have a minion USB that I am convinced helps increase my writing power!) lol

Brittney: Honestly—the only thing I need is not anything tangible –just time J Working around my toddler’s schedule means I only write when he lets me J

Me:  Did you use an editor? If so, would you like to recommend them?

Brittney: Absolutely! Sarah Norton is the Chief Editor at wordsRU.com. I had developmental editing, copy/line editing, as well as proofreading through wordsRU.com

Me:  What was the most important thing you learned working with an editor?

That everyone needs one.  🙂 They really just help you see things from a totally different perspective. Plus, they point out the obvious things you miss & push you to write better than you thought you were capable of.

Me:  Are you an outliner or a panster? If you outline, is there a particular method you prefer?

Brittney: I outline. In fact, I had my editor critique the outline to my 2nd book, so I could get some feedback on the plot before I even started writing (hoping to save time from any major future rewrites). …But, with that said, I also let my characters take me on a journey while I am writing, and sometimes they take me somewhere I hadn’t planned (so I go back to the drawing board and modify my plot outline to work with the new changes).

Me:  I saw your announcement concerning completing the first draft of your next novel. Can you tell us what to expect in your next book?

Brittney: I am pretty excited about this book. Title still unknown (hardest part for me!) – It is def. more intense and suspense-driven (action packed) than I had anticipated, so I went back and added some romance so I would still be within the parameters of a “romance suspense” novel. But it involves Homeland Security, secret agencies, chemical terrorist threats . . . and of course—a man with a sexy Irish accent J

Me:  What would you say was the most valuable lesson you learned while writing Silenced Memories?

Brittney: Since it was my first book—I learned how to be a self-published author. Now—I am no longer a first-time author (I have some experience)—and just completing the process has helped me tremendously with my 2nd book thus far.

Me:  Do you have any words of wisdom you would like to share with new writers?

Brittney: Print your book and edit it 1-2 more times when you think you are already done . . . When I ordered the proof for my paperback, I found errors that both my editor(s) and I missed—because it was like reading the book for the first time (and it opened my eyes to a few issues). Thankfully, I had time to fix the issues, before the eBook or paperback went on sale!

Thank you again, Brittney.

I highly recommend this book. And, if you enjoy it, please support an author and leave a review. You can purchase on Amazon just click here! Also, visit Brittney’s blog at https://brittneysahin.wordpress.com/. She offers support for other authors as well.

Until Next Time…
