A Vengeful Affair by Carmen Falcone
Hello Carmen, welcome to Tasha’s Tayls! Thank you so much for letting me be the first to interview you and congratulations on the release of your first novel, A Vengeful Affair, published by Entangled.
Thanks for having me, Tasha.
We first met just after New Voices 2011. Tell me how has your life changed since October of last year.
After New Voices, I finished A Vengeful Affair and polished it. I was encouraged to submit it by the amazing people I met.
You recently went home to Brazil to visit with friends and family. What was the highlight of your trip?
Well, seeing my family is always lovely. The highlight? I was fortunate to do some research for my work in progress and visit a Brazilian Indian tribe. I’m a sucker for alternative lifestyles, and spending time with them really changed my outlook on life.
Glad you had a chance to relax after completing your novel. What was the inspiration behind A Vengeful Affair?
I’ve always enjoyed alpha males. I find men who are strong, good-looking and dominant extremely hot. But I also love alpha females. Then I asked myself -– how can I craft a heroine who can stand up to a hero, but whom we can also relate to? I think we, women, are strong and resilient and sweet and wonderful. I love to celebrate that in my books.
Tells us a little more about your characters, Vivian and Javier. If they only had 24 hours left on this earth, after saying goodbye to loved ones, what would they do?
Which part of Vivian’s body does Javier find the sexiest?
In what position (careful now!) does each of them like to sleep?
Javier likes to sleep on his back, and Vivian likes to sleep on the side. See, I kept it clean! The dirty answer is in the book.
What do they wear to bed?
She wears long nightgowns and he wears… nothing.
What would be the one thing Javier could do to make Vivian smile?
Share embarrassing moments from his past with her.
What makes Javier jealous?
Oooh, you’ll have to read the book for that one.
If money were no object, where in the world would Vivian and Javier live?
Thank you for helping us get to know Vivian and Javier a little better. What are you working on next?
I have a couple of projects. They are exciting and I’m in love with the characters. Hopefully, I’ll have news to share soon.
Thanks for your time, and good luck with A Vengeful Affair, available from:
Barnes & Noble
