Eclipse of the Heart 

About the Book

Title Eclipse of the Heart
Genre Contemporary Romance
Author Name Carly Carson
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Amanda Thompson is offered her dream job as a junior executive at a Manhattan venture firm. The terms are a little vague, but she has a seriously ill sister to provide for, and her new boss is a seriously attractive man. Failure is not an option, so she'll keep her eye on the prize, and her heart and body out of the mix…despite the boss's overly personal interest in her.
Logan Winter is a hard-driving business tycoon who likes his sex life hot and his emotional life cold. His new high-end call girl is a little different from the ordinary bimbos who fill the role. That's okay, since he's ready for different. Even discovering the mistake that's been made is okay, because he knows how to get what he wants…and he wants Amanda.

About the Character

Name: Logan Winter
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Boston, MA
Profession: Entrepreneur
Describe his/her body build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars: His gray eyes are cool enough to match his name. His dark hair is cut short, and his firm mouth speaks of a man used to making decisions and ruling his world.
Who is the significant other in your character's life?
He has no significant other.
How does your hero dress?
Logan dresses in a businesslike, New England manner (think prep). He doesn't care about clothes, but he grew up in New England, so these clothes are convenient for him and useful in his business dealings. Amanda loves to see him with his oxford-cloth shirt rolled up to expose his tan forearms. (Of course, she also loves to see him in fewer clothes, if possible.)
What are the qualities of his voice? (pitch, quality, volume)
Deep, dark and seductive.
If you could only hear this character's voice (but not see him) what characteristic would identify him?
Amanda could identify him by voice because his voice alone gives her goose-bumps.
What is your character's viewpoint on wealth? Not necessary, nice to have, important, obtain at all costs?
Wealth is something Logan has, but life has taught him that money is much less important than other things.
How do others perceive your character based upon looks? How true is this assumption? Does your character care about those assumptions?
Other people see Logan as a rich playboy who works hard and plays hard. He only cares about the opinions of his close friends, and they know he's not superficial or spoiled by the fact that he apparently can have whatever he wants. They know, as he does, that he can never have what he wants most.
Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?
Yes, Logan has been carrying around a tragic secret for a long time. It's easy to keep the secret because he has no desire to talk about the tragedy. At the same time, it's a huge weight on him because it affects every part of his life, yet he can't talk about it.
What is your hero's biggest personal flaw?
He can separate his emotions from his relationships with other people. This flaw prevents him from healing emotionally.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
She knew that I needed to be jolted out of my cold, emotionless life. I wasn't always happy with her plot machinations, but she knew exactly which plot element I would not be able to turn my back on.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
I would have kept the secret about my family forevermore. It was painful to re-open that wound.
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
I was surprised to discover I was capable of love. I'd convinced myself that I wasn't. I'm grateful to the writer for showing me that important fact that led me to my present happiness.
When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?
The writer is sad that she can never fix the tragedy that made me who I am. She's happy to engineer a happy ending. She wouldn't rest until I got mine.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
Rosie deserves her own story. She's not the kind of buttoned-up employee I normally hire, but she turned out to be a true friend to both me and Amanda. I'd love to see that imp get her own happily ever after.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your writer?

Author Bio

In Carly's Real World: She is a wife to Traveling Man, who actually knows flight attendants because they are on his "commute". (That is his story, and we're buying it.) The upside is, Carly gets some sweet travel deals. Once the whole family stayed for free in the Presidential Suite plus the Queen suite at an all-inclusive 5-star resort in Cozumel. Another time, they got upgraded from two garden-view rooms to two ocean-front suites on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu. Traveling Man is very handy to have around.
Carly is also the Jill-of-all-trades to three offspring, who often take her for granted, but are nonetheless wonderful. Just ask them. :)
In Carly's Fantasy World: The men are tough, but the women are tougher, though usually in a different way. Women enjoy sex and men understand it. (This is fantasy world, remember.) Happy endings are mandatory, though there may be a lot of trouble and heartache to get there.
