Tequila Sunset holds a special place in my heart. When the story came to mind a little over a year ago, I fell in love with 1st Lieutenant Gabriel Daniels' character from the start and I knew he would be a little harder to write given his painful childhood. In Tequila Sunset you only get a glimpse of what he went through, but we'll see more of him and his story soon. (more news to come on that! ;))
Gabriel carries a heavy burden in his heart, but he's a man that tries to not let his past control his future. It won't be that easy, but it doesn't stop him from reaching out to help others. That is why I knew he would be the perfect hero for Esmeralda.
She's a strong minded, sassy Latina forced into raising her younger sister from a young age. Years after her father passed away and her mother found the bottom of a bottle to avoid the reality, Esmeralda still struggles to carve out a life for herself and her sister.
In Tequila Sunset we get a glimpse of Ema's troubles and how Gabriel will have to fight for her. Not only to capture her heart, but to save her from the Mexican drug lord that has set his criminal sights on Ema's small business.
Before I started writing though, I knew both would be very passionate and I needed the right kind of music to help translate their story onto the page.
Here's a look behind the scenes of Tequila Sunset and what inspired the sizzling love scenes between Gabriel and his sassy Latina.
Tequila Sunset is a story of two people finding strength in each other while taking a chance on opening up and letting their passions finally burn bright.
Stay in the loop!
Sweet 'n Flirty romance with HART!
