  • Questions for Clair’s Clan.
    1. Will you tell us a little about yourself?
    2. Hi I’m Linda L Picl, I write second chance at love romances.
    2. Why did you start to write? I worked in libraries my entire life watching all the various
    romance writers come and go and it looked like something I wanted to try for myself. Have
    you always longed to write a book or was there a trigger? The trigger was being exposed to
    so many great writers for so long.
    3. What sort of books do you write? I write second chance at love romances and I recently
    ventured into the paranormal romances. Why did you choose that particular genre? I believe
    there are so many women out there who made mistakes in their early marriages, either
    because it was cool to get married young or they expected theirs to be the fairy tale marriage
    and for some reason it didn’t turn out the way they expected it to go. The books I write are to
    show them they really can find true love the second time around.
    4. How autobiographical are your stories? Not at all, I have been very lucky at love.
    5. Have you a favourite setting for your stories? Why? I love the south, so I tend to put my
    stories there.
    6. Do you ever fall for your characters? Oh gosh yes.
    7. Do your characters ever surprise you? Every character is a surprise, when you start a book
    it never goes the way you expect it to.
    8. How do you get yourself in the mood for writing? Music, I love to write and edit with my
    ear buds in.
    9. What is the strangest place you have written in? No strange places for me, I’m a firm
    believer in settling down in an office chair and getting to work.
    10. Have you ever experienced ‘writer’s block’ and how did you cope with it? Constantly, I
    am always battling it. The people that tell you to sit and start writing anything are right. You
    just have to dig in and start writing.
    11. Describe your perfect first date. Dinner and a walk in the woods.
    12. If you could live anywhere in the world where would you choose and why? I love rural
    Indiana, I love the country, farm, and quiet sort of life.
    1. Chocolate or ice-cream? Can I have both please…lol
  • 2. Favourite tipple. Wine, any sort of wine.
    3. Seaside or forest? Forest.
    4. Rain or sun? Sun of course.
    5. Christmas or birthday? I love, love, love Christmas.
    6. Elegant or comfortable clothes? For sure comfortable.
    7. TV or cinema? TV.
    8. Laptop or notebook for writing? Actually full-fledged PC.
    9. Nail colour? Clear.
    10. Dom, sub or switch? I’ll never tell. LOL

Solitary Dreamer



Everyone felt sorry for Carrie Lawson. She was a sweet woman who had nothing but a deadbeat husband and a dream of a writing career. Happiness was something she had to fight for but when she met Logan Franks, a local firefighter, her love life became a whole lot warmer until her very existence was almost snuffed out by a person she thought she’d never see again.
Logan Franks is hot, and not just in looks. Being a volunteer firefighter doesn’t just mean being on a calendar or turning girls on…it’s dangerous work. Sometimes you have to go in and save everyone, sometimes even your worst enemy. But Logan is above all that, he will save everyone he can.
He and Carrie will fight for a life together, no matter what, even if the chances are high it will all blow up in their faces.


He knew the exhaustion was finally hitting her, “Yes it is but for tonight that’s enough information. You’ve been through hell let me take you home to get some rest. Your staying with me tonight, I can’t be away from you any longer.”
“I can’t be away from you either. I want to be in your arms all evening, if that’s okay with you. And for the record if that man is really my dad, thank you. But let’s leave all this until tomorrow. I’ll deal with it then.”
She hugged him close feeling safer in that moment then any other time in her life.
The walk through the woods with Flash between them was silent, they said nothing and they reveled in the fact that they were still alive and together. The relief he felt that she made it through her ordeal was all he needed.
Arm in arm they entered his cabin, past the kitchen, living room and straight to the bedroom. This wasn’t something they had to discuss. It was what they both wanted, to be with each other. No more games, no phone calls or doubting themselves in the dark. Before they knew it, they were under the covers.
His kisses started in the woods and didn’t stop. He needed her and waiting any longer was impossible for him now. She returned his kisses, digging her fingers into his back as if he were about to disappear and she had to hold onto him forever.
“I love you Carrie, I’ve needed you for so long, and even before I knew you I knew you were out there for me. Please love me tonight and always.”
“I love you too , I don’t know why I was such an idiot. Keeping you away was the most self-destructive thing I’ve ever done. You’re so good for me. Please always love me.”
“I need you to be mine now.” He whispered. Understanding exactly what he needed she rolled on top of him bringing him to heaven faster than he’d ever thought possible.The next day……/B00L5M…/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1…
