Interview with Romance Author Angelina Rose

After a tragic loss five years ago, Sally Overby becomes an Attorney in Atlanta. She convinces herself that all she'll ever need again is her young son, David, and her life as an attorney. Until one day, Colin Dean barges back into her life and promptly blows her safe world apart, driving her crazy as only a guy she'd had a "school girl crush" on can.

Sally is wary to love deeply. Only, with every loving look Colin gives her plus every sweet kiss, as the attraction between them sparks, she can’t help but wonder if she’s met the one she should be with. And although Colin didn’t realize his life was going to change so quickly, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different fight altogether. The one for Sally’s heart.

Will Colin be able to convince her that's it safe to love him... and that forever isn't really out of reach?

The Eyes of Love is a novella… so you can enjoy it in just one day!
Excerpt from The Eyes of Love

"Hi there. I'm Gracie..." the waitress said as she put down a napkin and some silverware.

"Gracie. It's me. Sally Overby," she said grinning.

Gracie stopped in her tracks and squinted her eyes. "Sally? I can't believe it! You're stunning, honey!" she said reaching down and hugging her. "What are you doing in town?"

"Reunion. And to see Momma, of course."

"I can't get over how beautiful you are!"


"You were always a sweetheart of a person, but now your outside matches your inside."

"That's a nice way to look at it."

"So, what have you been up to?"

"Let's see... Became an attorney, got married, had a son, became a widow..."

"Oh, Sally, I'm so sorry! I remember that now. Your Momma told me a few years back. You're still single?"

"Yep. But I have a date to the reunion tomorrow night, so I guess I'm officially back on the dating circuit now," Sally said giggling.

"Date? Who with?"

"Colin Dean."

Gracie started fanning herself. "Oh, girl, you scored on that one, huh?"

"I did. He's a wonderful guy."

1. Do you ever wish you were someone else? Who?
No, not really, I am happy with who I am. Now, if you were to ask me do I wish I was a millionaire, that would be an easy question to answer. Yes!

2. What did you do on your last birthday?
I was in New York on my last birthday. We had dinner at The Russian Tea Room and then saw Annie at the Palace Theatre on Broadway. Daddy Warbucks is played by Australian, Anthony Warlow.
I love both New York and theater so I had the best birthday…

3. Do you have any tattoos? Where? When did you get it/them? Where are they on your body?
A few years ago I just barely avoided getting a tattoo on my leg.

There are tattoos and then there are TATTOOS. I must like elegant ones (if there’s such a thing), as I have applied the removable ones to my leg. I think the idea of being engraved forever is part of my problem with them: having indellible ink inserted into my skin! Uugh … don’t like that idea at all.

I really do not like the large flashing tattoos at all but I must say I do love many of the stories surrounding them…

4. What are you working on right now?
I’m in the early phase of writing my new series, So, it's probably safest not to say too much.

This series is set in Mobile in Alabama where there are some very colorful personalities. It’s a romantic suspense story so is somewhat different from my earlier books. There is a lot happening in and around the lives of the main characters, Derek and Gabrielle. Derek is a Detective Lieutenant and Grabrielle a newly graduated Pharmacist who inherits her father’s Pharmaceutical Company.

So, there are interesting twists and romantic turns in this series, combined with betrayal and counterfeit drugs.

5. What do you think you’re really good at?
I think taking care of people, listening to them and being able to react appropriately to problems. I have been told I can see into people and see what they are feeling even when they don’t tell me. I am good at helping people to feel better and be positive.
More about the Author

Angelina Rose has wanted to write ever since she could hold a pencil. The first daughter of immigrant parents, Angelina had her head buried in books, lost in a world of heroes, heroines and exotic places.

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Angelina's author career.

"I awoke in the ICU... I had been unconscious for several days," Angelina says.

In 2010, Angelina had a long stint in hospital following her involvement in a motor vehicle accident: the longest time off work (as a Registered Nurse), she'd ever had in her life!

It was then she took up pen and paper and started to write again, just as she had done when she was a child. She wrote four short fiction stories for young adults, entered them in several competitions, and managed to win three first prizes!

After happily dipping her toes into writing those short fiction stories for young adults, Angelina has now authored four books in a new "Mill Creek Crossing Romance" series... contemporary romance intended for adults.

The "Starting Over Series" is another contemporary romance series she wrote about a subject she knows well... nurses and their love life. At a recent reunion of her graduating class, she could not help but notice how the same girls would group together and laugh, chat, and even shed some tears over their lives since graduating. Many of the girls had divorced... so Angelina thought "what if a group of the nurses came up with a plan to meet in two years and have a new love story to share?" Then the first story in the series was born.

There is always a story running around in her head. A man with thick dark hair, gray-blue eyes, with an en
gaging smile and a quick wit... or a girl crying over a broken relationship. She finds herself talking to these characters during her day: when she's doing dishes, or bathing babies at the hospital. These characters crop up on days at the beach or on walks through the neighborhood. This is how the stories start to grow.

Angelina's mother was an author, so Angelina grew up with a love of words and stories. If she wasn't writing a short story about something that took her fancy, her head was buried in books... reading, reading, reading, as her brother constantly told her...

When she's not spending time with her goodlooking man, or quality time with her laptop, she's working at the hospital, hanging out with her family and friends, or walking her two dogs around the neighborhood. Angelina spends as much time as she can traveling, then coming home and including some of those adventures in her stories.

Angelina really loves to hear from her readers and she invites you to connect with her on Facebook as she interacts daily with her readers there!
