La Isla Del Encanto

Hopefully the Spanish title grabbed your attention and now you’re asking, what the hey? My new release, Tropical Paradise, takes place in beautiful Puerto Rico, where the sun, sand, and the sea are in abundance.

As a Latina, I find the island paradise near and dear to my heart. Beautiful men and women grace the island’s beaches every day, soaking up the sun and looking for love. So I decided what better place than this scrumptious backdrop for my 1Night Stand?

Writing Tropical Paradise was fun as I mapped the island in my mind, knowing that I had been there or could pinpoint any of the places. The drive from the airport in San Juan towards the coast, the sun shining brightly and the radio blaring. Every word written was a memory come to life and fueled my desire to tell Leo and Skyler’s story.

What you may find ironic is that out of everyone in my family, I am the least beachy-heat person. My family laughs as they ask, what kind of Puerto Rican are you, since you hate the heat and sand? What can I say- I may be Latina hot and have a Latin temper, but the heat is not my friend! I think is another life I was Eskimo and not Latina.

I am my own oxymoron, but that’s what makes me unique and this chica loves unique. So, how about a contest? Is there something that makes you an oxymoron or very unique? Like me, do you love snow to be measured in feet not inches while maintaining a Latin flair?

Tropical Paradise

Can Madame Eve work her magic one more time? Leo Santos left the one man he loved behind to care for his ailing father. Sky Macy never forgot his one and only that got away. When they meet again on a blind date setup by 1Night Stand, will they go their separate ways or will the sparks reignite the love they never forgot?
   On a secluded beach at the resort Las Casitas Villas in Fajardo, Leo and Sky come face to face after years apart. Passion ignites so hot it threatens to burn them from within. They both will need to open their hearts and learn to trust if they hope to find love during one night of passion in a tropical paradise.
