Francis is absolutely the perfect image for the De La Cruz Saga. His photos of him in different looks enabled me to use him as my book cover images of the primos (cousins). I love how he looks in different ages. He also looks awesome in black and white.

♥ Hot & Enchanting, De La Cruz Saga (Amazon review)
I have not had the pleasure of reading the other books in this saga. I can tell you that it was a very captivating story line and you never knew for sure what would happen next. The traditions and beliefs of the family were well written into the story and was glad to see they were included. I do recommend that you read the entire saga to get a good firm grasp on the entire story line. I believe you will be thrilled to see where this takes you. It is a “Hot” read so I do suggest that you read it away from the little ones.
Thank you Patricia for the awesome story!!

Welcome A.L. Jackson to my blog. It’s awesome to have you visiting. Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hey everyone! I’m A.L. Jackson, author of Pulled, Take This Regret, When We Collide, and Lost to You.  I’m over here in Southern Arizona where I spend my days writing wrapped up in a zebra Snuggie J Don’t laugh. I hate winter.

How did you decided to enter the world of writing?

I’ve always loved writing. I used to carry a journal around with me in college, and I wrote a lot of poetry at that time. It wasn’t until years later when I had the idea for Pulled that I finally decided to sit down and write a novel.

What does your family think of your writing?
They’re all really supportive. My husband is the best. I can often get really lost in my head when I write, so I know that has to be frustrating for family. It means so much that they all respect what I do and support me through it all.

Where do you get your ideas?

So far with all of my books, one character has just shown up in my head. I can see their face and get some kind of idea of their situation. I’m sure there’s something that triggers it, but I haven’t ever been conscious of it. Then I build the story and other characters around that idea. 

Pulled.indd

Can you tell us a little about your book?

My newest release is a novella called Lost to You. It’s the prequel to Take This Regret, and shows us how Elizabeth and Christian first got together. I was really nervous to write a novella, but I ended up enjoying this so much. 

What is your writing process? 

Normally when a story idea comes to me, I think on it for a while, and then try to begin jotting down some ideas. I do write an outline and try to break the concept down into chapters so I have a good grasp on where I want to go with the story. From there, I write chapter by chapter. And then of course a big edit at the end. 

WhenWeCollide.indd

What was the hardest part for you when working on your book? 

I’m an impatient person and I like everything done NOW. But I’m a slow writer. In every aspect of my life, I work really quickly and love the results, so the amount of time it takes me to write can be kind of frustrating. I’m slowly coming to accept that it just takes me a while to get these stories down. 

Was there a scene that you didn’t add or you removed in your finished work? 

Not in Lost to You. The end result basically ended up the same as my first draft (but with editing, of course) and one extra scene I ended up adding at the end. But I definitely have deleted scenes in my full-length books.   

Do you have a favorite character (from your book)? Why?

In Lost to You, definitely Christian. He’s so easy to fall in love with, but he’s also incredibly flawed. I love being in his confused thoughts. 

Do you already know what to write next? Can you tell us? 

Yes, I have an outline ready for my next book. I don’t have a name yet, but I can tell you it will be an NA romance. No long flashbacks this time, just a lot of intensity and angst. 

LostToYou.indd

Where can we find more information about you and your books? 

I’m all over the web.  Find me at:

www.facebook.com/aljacksonbooks

http://pinterest.com/aljacksonbooks 

Do you have any last words?
Just want to thank you for asking me on, and a big thank you to everyone for taking the time to read.

My pleasure A.J., I enjoyed learning all about you and your books. I hope that you visit soon.

Fun Questions ~  

I love weekends because?

I love the down time with my family.

I hate?

Tuna. Oh, and winter.

I want to buy?

A new house. We’ve been planning on building, but have been waiting for the lot we want to open up. Another lesson in patience J

My favorite song is?

Well, if you asked me tomorrow, my answer would probably be different, but right now I can’t get enough of Somebody That I Used to Know. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UVNT4wvIGY Video makes me laugh.

My favorite precious stone is?

Black diamond.

I want to travel to? Why?

Mediterranean Sea because of its amazing history and incredible beauty. 

Take This Regret_new.indd

My favorite book is?

Right now, I’m loving Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.

Hot & Enchanting, De La Cruz Saga by P.T. Macias

Hot & Enchanting Is Now Available!  Book_cover_final 11-26-12  Andres  perfect

A hot-blooded saga of the De La Cruz familia and their fortunes is centered on romance, pasión, and danger. Enjoy their explosively passionate nature.

Ricardo Emmanuel De La Cruz is the hot sexy alpha playboy of the De La Cruz familia. As an attorney and one of the managers in the familia’s company, he enjoys being pursued by the chicas.  They have been chasing him his entire life.

Ricky literally runs into Jacqueline Cortez. She’s a bella, shy, and quiet certified public accountant that works for la familia.  Jacqueline turns his world upside down.

Jacqueline Cortez has been in love with Ricardo her entire life. She never dreamed that running into him would unleash the amor she had locked up a long time ago.  Will she be able to outrun Ricardo and avoid being his next conquest? How long can Jacqueline resist Ricardo’s attentions? Is she doomed to fall under his enchantment and into his waiting arms?

Excerpt

Ricky is in a hurry getting out of his carro, damn it I’m almost out of time. We have a meeting with the new client and I have to make sure that the contracts are correct before I turn them over for Jose Enrique’s review. Si I hate running behind schedule and I’m always on it. I don’t usually arrive so early at the office, thinks Ricky grabbing his portfolio from his carro.

Ricky strides into the hall to get the elevator, missing it, watching the doors close. He stops in shock, damn it, that’s the hermosa muneca from yesterday, thinks Ricky standing, watching her just before the doors close.

Wow, I totally missed an opportunity to talk to the muneca. How can I get to know her? I know that she recognizes me. She is looking at me with shock. Yeah, she didn’t expect to see me and I sure as hell didn’t expect to see her.  I need to talk to her outside of the building. I don’t want to cause any issues with la familia’s company employees, ponders Ricky impatiently waiting for the elevator to come down. I know that she works here, but a lot of good that does me. My body won’t calm down, I’m totally awake now. I don’t know what it is about her that provokes these amazing overwhelming reactions.

Awesome review by JD,

PLEASE  visit blog and follow. 

Today I am reviewing the ebook - 
Hot and Spicy:  De La Cruz Saga
by P.T. MaciasIn most romance novels, most of the book is spent getting the girl and the guy together; then too often they up and end the book, leaving you wanting more.  But in this one, the author gets the girl and the guy together right off the bat; then the problems and the fun begin.

Visit the blog and see the entire review!
