Character Interview: Dr. Colin from Breaking the Rules @melindadozier #RLFblog

Breaking the Rules
Melinda, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. We're excited to interview your character, Dr. Colin Calaway from the book, Breaking the Rules.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Crimson Romance
Cover artist: Crimson Romance
Length: 200 pages
Heat rating: 3 hearts
Tagline: Hope, a klutz and perpetual rule follower, falls for Dr. Calaway. Is following her heart instead of the rules a good idea?
A forbidden love affair in the past has led Hope Robinson, a middle school principal, to Harbor Bay, Florida, where she commits herself to play by the rules. This can be difficult for a perpetual klutz, who—even strapped in a cast—has to uphold a competent attitude at all times.
Luckily, she has Dr. Colin Calaway on her side, a widower and father of a student, who is ready to give love another try. When Colin convinces Hope they should explore the connection between them, a steamy romance develops, though it could destroy them both. They must decide if their jobs—and their hearts—are worth the risk.

Interview with Colin Calaway
Breaking the Rules

Tell us about yourself.
I'm a Floridian since birth and love my family. I work hard as an orthopedic surgeon and as a single-father to Jason. My favorite hobbies include swimming and surfing … and flirting with Hope.
Tell us about Hope.
Hope is this amazing woman who just fell into my life in an unexpected way. If Jason never got into trouble, who knows if we would've hooked up. She's Jason's middle school principal at Harbor Bay Prep. She's funny, though she'd say she wasn't, and a bit klutzy, but it makes her cute. I call her my frequent flyer, because she's in and out of doctor's offices so much.
What do you think is your strongest point?
Time Changes Everything
I'd do anything for my family. Since Jason's mom died, I'm his only parent and I know how hard that is on the little guy. So, us Calaway men need to stick together.
What would Hope say is your strongest point?
Hope cracks me up. She always calls me Mr. Perfect. I'm not sure why she thinks that. We are so compatible it's frightening and I get her – so maybe she'd say that's my strongest point.
What would Hope say is your biggest weakness?
My persistence, but in the end it paid off. If I gave up on Hope early on, like she wanted me to, we'd never be engaged now.
Describe a place of perfect refuge.
When I need to think or meditate on life's decisions, you'd probably find me on the ocean with my surfboard. That's my quiet place. 
As a child, who was your best friend? Tell us about him/her.
Tim Weeks is my best friend and almost brother. We've been friends since I can't even remember. He's in Breaking the Rules, too, and he's hard to miss – quite a loudmouth, unfortunately. A little bird told me Melinda has Tim's story in the works.
