Meet The Character: Will Hudson

I was tagged by Louisa Bacio to join a group of talented writers in the Meet the Character Blog Hop. Here's a quick get-to-know-you of Will Hudson -- the hero in my novella Reunited.

Who is Will? An overworked assistant district attorney for the city of Los Angeles.

Where does REUNITED take place? At the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas. 

What won’t Will talk about? That he's had his heart broken before and would rather throw himself into his work than risk getting hurt again in a relationship. 

What is Will's goal? To break his dry spell in the bedroom and scratch an itch with a willing stranger during a blind date set up through Madame Eve's 1Night Stand experience.

The problem? Will has no idea that his date is no stranger. She's actually his former high school classmate Magdelena Cruz who has gone to great lengths to invent a new persona in order to spend one night with the one man she's always wanted. Their reunion will prove to be hotter than the Vegas sun, but will their heat spark something deeper? Or will they both end up getting burned by Magdelena's charade?

Where to find Reunited:

Available through Amazon, Decadent Publishing and other retailers.

Meet next week's author:

Lisa Burstein

She lives in Portland, Oregon with her very patient husband, a neurotic dog and two cats.

How far would you go for a second chance?

Eleven years after flunking out of college, Kate has finally hit rock-bottom. Losing her job and boyfriend in one drunken night, she’s determined to fix her life by going back to the moment when she let partying and sex take over. And do things right this time. At twenty-nine, she heads back to freshman year of college, with a catch.

Pretending she's nineteen with a new roommate and full class schedule is easy. When she meets her shy, sexy and seven-years-younger RA, Carter, following her self-imposed sobriety and celibacy rules is proving to be anything but.

A senior enduring years of regret, Carter is more than ready to graduate. He’s anxious to move on from the party his freshman year where he witnessed his frat brothers about to commit a sexual assault. Instead of doing the right thing and stepping in, he looked the other way and left. His guilt has made for a lonely four years.

When he meets the new freshman on his floor, spunky and confident Kate, he wonders if his time as an outcast has finally come to an end.

Kate and Carter’s growing friendship and undeniable attraction make it harder to hide the demons from their respective pasts. But when their secrets are finally revealed, will their chance at starting over together still be there?
