Esmerelda Quinn has been looking for a place to belong since her parents were killed in a car crash when she was young. The closest thing to home has always been Aunt Constance's villa in
Puerto Vallarta, so after a string of dead-end
hotellier jobs, she's coming home to run the villa.
Santiago Cruz has called the villa home for as long as he can remember. In between surfing events,
has always had a room for him. Color him surprised when Constance decides to retire
- and leaves a joint interest in the villa to both Santiago and Esme.
Esme isn't thrilled to share ownership of the villa with the youngest Cruz brother - especially when she learns
Santiago's brother has been after the villa for
years. But Santiago
has grown up while she's been away at school and soon she finds herself falling
for the rich surfer down the hall -- all over again.

Interview with Esmerelda
What's your external complication? In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
What would that person say about you?
He would say I'm wound a little too tight, but that this sundress I'm wearing will help cool me off. Ha!
What is your family like?
My parents died in a car crash when I was young, so there was only me and my aunt, Constance. She is everything to me, and now we've added
Santiago to our family unit
and I couldn't be happier.
Are you happy with the way your story ended? Why or why not?
Yes, I got the guy, didn't I? And together we saved Casa Constance. Things aren't perfect, but we're working on that.
About the Writer
Why did you choose to write about this character?
I couldn't not write Esmerelda's story. She and Saint deserved to get things right. They were both wounded by their childhoods and it was so much fun to help them set things right.
Was there anything you discovered about this character that was a surprise to you?
How unbusinesslike Esme really is. She puts up a good front, but at the core, she's fun and silly and adventurous.
When you wrote about this character, what made you the most happy? What made you the most sad?
Seeing her come alive again, try new things again made me the happiest, and even though her childhood still makes me sad, seeing her come to terms with it and learn from what happened also made me extremely happy.
What other character from this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
I really want to tell Tobias' story next. He's
Santiago's brother and he's
very tightly wound, but in a different way than Saint is. I need to figure him out!
Are any sequels planned for this book?
As a matter of fact, yes! I'm just now digging into Tobias' story and I'm hoping to have it out to readers in the early spring.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
I love and appreciate you all so much! Thank you for coming along on this crazy, writer ride!
Once upon a time, Kristina Knight spent her days running from car crash to fire to meetings with local police--no, she wasn't a troublemaker, she was a journalist. Her career took her all over the
United States, writing
about everything from a serial killer's capture to the National Finals Rodeo. Along
the way she found her very own Knight in Shining Cowboy Boots and an abiding love
for romance novels. Kristina writes contemporary romance with a smattering of sass,
sex and (of course) drama, and she loves hearing from readers. And just like the
characters from her favorite books, she's living her own happily ever after.
