AUSSIE MONTH with Nicole Flockton
Describe yourself in one word:
Tell us about Tangled Vines:
Tangled Vines is my latest release and it’s a Christmas story. But it’s not your typical Christmas story. My hero, Kyle, is anti Christmas and would rather spend his time with a scotch bottle than at Christmas parties. My heroine Jordan, is determined not to be swayed from her goal of saving the neglected vines on Kyle’s property, after having an award snatched from her by her fiancée. Both are determined to keep their eye on their own goals, but when they spend time together they find that Christmas wishes can come true.
What inspired this novel?
I wanted to do a Christmas story but I wanted to do something a bit different. I tried to think of something that happened around Christmas that could affect someone so much they don’t want to celebrate it anymore. Then I recalled the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami and how it changed so many lives. So I decided to use that as the backstory for one of my characters.
What are you reading right now?
Because my TBR pile is long and varied, I’m currently reading the NYC Angels continuity from Harlequin Medical line.
Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
I don’t have a bucket list. But I am going to Vegas in April so that’s one of the things I can tick of the “Places to see while living in the US” list.
Best thing about being an Aussie?
Australian’s are cool. I love our laidback nature. Living in the US at the moment I miss the beaches and, as silly as it sounds, our isolation.
What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
There really and truly is something for everyone to read. The genre is so wide and varied now. I love being a romance author.
What have you got in store for your readers in 2016?
I’ve got a story in a boxed set coming in February called Manservant Boxed Set. It was a fun concept to work with. Then in early Spring I have a book which is part of a three book series with two other authors. The series is about three brothers and the inheritances they didn’t get when their father died. My story involves an inherited piece of land, a marriage of convenience and a key that leads to where they do not know, it’s called Sweet Texas Fire.
What were your big achievements of 2015?
Hmm I think self publishing the first two books of my series The Freemasons. It’s been an interesting and fun experience. I’ll be looking at releasing the other two in the series in 2016.
Tangled Vines: An Australian Rural Romance
This charming Australian rural romance will remind you of the true meaning of the holiday spirit and the power of love.
Kyle Davis doesn’t do Christmas since he lost his whole family in the Boxing Day tsunami last decade. His idea of celebrating is going to his Margaret River property and cuddling up with his liquor cabinet. So finding Jordan Hastings in his shower is unacceptable—no matter how his body responds to her, a relationship is not on his holiday wish list.
After being betrayed by the man she thought loved her, winemaker Jordan has taken over her father’s caretaker position—and a little bit more— at the rural vineyard. She’s trying to get her career on track by bringing the neglected grapes on the property back to life. Handsome Kyle is hard to resist, especially after they grow closer and she learns of his tragic past. But falling for a man who controls her employment is not on the table.
Yet the more time they spend together, the more it appears that taking another risk on living and loving could be the best Christmas gift after all.
