Congratulations author Jaine Diamond on your book Dirty Like Me!
In a warm welcome fashion, I wanted to interview Janie Diamond so all TOW readers can get to know her a little better.
What is your favorite positive saying?
Love conquers all! That’s pretty much the underlying theme of all of my books… and romance books in general, I suppose.
What is your favorite film and why?
Oh, man. I’d have to say my favorite film of all time is Heat, with Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Val Kilmer. I guess I secretly love badass guys with guns (in fiction), which is why I’m feeling really tempted to write a motorcycle club romance or some other type of outlaw romance sometime soon-ish.
If you could be an animal, which would you be and why?
Does a unicorn count? I would totally be a unicorn. Because everyone loves unicorns, right?
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Hmm… I don’t know how interesting it is, but I can’t seem to get on board with the whole idea of just writing and then editing later. I can’t stop editing while I write. It drives me crazy if things aren’t all neat and tidy all along the way. I’m kind of obsessive about it; especially the first scene or chapter… I’ll rewrite and tweak it dozens of times to make sure I’m getting the story off on the right foot.
What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I spend a lot of time with my man and our little girl; she’s a year and a half and starting to talk, so she’s pretty entertaining. I read, a lot. And I spend a LOT of time daydreaming up ideas for my forthcoming books! Which is a really good way to spend time, since my books involve a lot of sexy stuff.
A gorgeous rock star.
An indecent proposal.
How can a girl resist?
Struggling barista Katie Bloom doesn’t even know who Jesse Mayes is until she inadvertently wins the coveted role of sex kitten in his hot new music video. But by the time she’s in bed with him, she knows his reputation.
Love maker. Heartbreaker.
Making out with a stranger in front of a camera crew isn’t how Katie imagined herself getting over a broken heart, but when Jesse touches her, sparks fly. The sex is fake but the chemistry is real, and soon the steamy video is blazing up the charts.
Then Jesse makes Katie an irresistible offer: act as his girlfriend for six weeks while he promotes his new album. The only catch? Their sizzling make-out sessions will be for the cameras only.
Which is fine with Katie, since she’s not about to trust her heart to rock’s most legendary lover. Her body? Maybe…
