Synopsis: Can his love for her stand the test of time?
On a night that should have been an ordinary one, curvy BBW Lacey Parker is accosted by a knife-wielding mugger, but is soon rescued by a charismatic stranger. Not even 24 hours later, Lacey’s life is once again at risk and her rescuer of the previous night snatches her from the jaws of death.
Vampire Aric Thornton knew Lacey from the moment of her birth. His existence revolves around watching her every footstep and protecting her from the enemies she knows nothing about. He loves her with every fiber of his otherworldly being, but the crazy thing is she didn’t even know he existed… until one night in the darkened alley.
Lacey can’t stand it; one minute Aric is all over her, can’t get his hands off of her, and the next he is giving her the cold shoulder. It doesn’t help that Damian is also vying for her affections. Can she and Aric defeat the forces that are conspiring against them and still have the love of a lifetime before it’s too late?
CH: Today’s Guest Author is Roxy Wilson. She is a self-professed book junkie. Welcome to my blog, Roxy.
CH: Can you sum up your paranormal romance in 20 words or less?
RW: A sexy-as-sin vampire and an I-don’t-give-a-damn heroine, Aric and Lacey, face many challenges on their road to love.
CH: How did you come up with the premise for this book?
RW: I just wondered what it would be like if a vampire fell in love with someone he knew and even protected, since she was a baby. He would definitely have internal conflicts, as he wrestled with the very adult/romantic feelings he has for her; yet, having the paternal instinct to continue to protect her.
CH: Did you have to do any special research to write this book or is it all imagination?
RW: It was all in my imagination.
CH: What is different and exciting that you bring to your readers through your writing style?
RW: I’m an educator by profession and I like to think that I give my readers the opportunity to learn something new, or at least look at a particular issue in a different way. For example, Smitten highlights the possible effects that gentrification can have on a community; Work It Out touches on how some single mothers handle raising a child with autism. The Baby Proposal examined the real issues that a surrogate mother can face. In fact, it was inspired by a true story! Then there is Ms. Perfectly Imperfect in which the heroine has alopecia! Can you imagine reading a romance about a bald-headed heroine? And even though My Guardian Vampire is a paranormal romance, I wanted readers to learn (if they hadn’t done so before) that you can’t force love; if you are meant for someone, there’s no thing or no one that can stop you and that special someone from being together. I’ve written dozens of books, so I won’t be able to elaborate on all of them; however, I guess by now you got the picture. 🙂
CH: Was it hard creating believable situations and issues or did you take them from real life and elaborate?
RW: I enjoy reading and writing romance. Period. I’m also fascinated by real-life stories of people who’ve faced seemingly insurmountable challenges, but still found the love of their life in the end. These stories inspire my own writing; so, my answer is yes and yes. In other words, it’s not particularly hard to create believable situations and issues, and there are times that I take them from real life and put my own spin on them.
CH: Which character was hardest to write?
RW: None of the characters were particularly hard to write. I loved them all. It was just a matter of me ensuring that each of them had a distinct voice, and a distinct personality.
CH: Which character was your favorite to write?
RW: I certainly enjoyed writing Lacey Parker’s character.
CH: What kind of feedback are you getting from readers of this book?
RW: I’ve got to admit that I didn’t get many reviews on this book, but the average rating is 4 stars.
CH: Is this the only genre you write?
RW: No. I write Jane Austen Fan Fiction (JAFF) under two pen names: one for the sexy JAFF and the other for the clean, Regency JAFF. I also write WWWM bad boy romance under another pen name. I wish to keep these pen names a secret. Roxy Wilson is my most popular pen name, however. Check out Roxy Wilson and perhaps, you may see something that may satisfy your reading palate. 🙂
CH: What is your next writing project?
RW: I’ll be re-releasing my first romance. I’ve got a new cover and have given it a new title, as well. Please permit me to reveal my cover to your readers. 🙂
Isn’t it lovely? This is book one of a 4-book series. Also, I’m collaborating with a new author. It will be her first romance, so I do hope that when our book hits the shelves, so-to-speak, that you guys will show her some love. 🙂

CH: Any closing remarks?
RW: I’m glad you asked. 🙂
It’s always a lovely feeling for authors when readers support them by not only buying or borrowing (if it’s enrolled in Kindle Unlimited) their book, but also by leaving a review. Reviews don’t have to be long, but they do bring visibility to the author’s work. These days it’s becoming harder and harder for many authors to break even when they release a book. Things have become such a challenge that many authors who were once writing full-time are now looking for gainful full-time or part-time employment in order to make ends meet. So, dear readers, don’t get mad when your favorite authors are taking longer than expected to release the second, third or fourth book in a series. Some of them are trying to meet their monthly obligations and have very little time to reserve for writing nowadays.
Finally, I love and appreciate every one of you who set aside a few hours of your time to read one of my books. I don’t take it for granted. There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of authors, who write the same genres that I do; therefore, I’m delighted when you see value in reading my books. Much Love. Cheryl, thanks for having me on your blog.
