Let’s Get To Know Sarah O’Rourke
Q: What are the top five books that have influenced your career?
1. Gone with the Wind because Rhett Butler was the original alpha male.
2. Little Women because this was the first book that inspired me to put pen to paper.
3. Motorcycle Man by Kristen Ashley because this is the book that made me realize that I truly wanted to right romance. When I couldn’t help adding little scenes to the book in my head, I knew that I was definitely a writer.
4. Whitney My Love by Judith McNaught because it was the first ‘real’ romance that I connected with on an emotional level.
5. The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough because it was the first romance I was ever allowed to read as a teenager.
Q: What’s the funniest thing a reader has ever said/emailed to you?
A: The funniest thing I ever heard from a reader was that she was inspired by some of the sexual positions I used during the intimate scenes between my hero and heroine. I was speechless.
Q: If you could go back in time before you published your first book, what advice would you give yourself about publishing?
A: The biggest piece of advice I’d give myself is to remind myself to be patient. Success isn’t a sprint. It’s a very long marathon. And it can’t always be measured in reviews and sales.
About The Homespun Holiday by Sarah O’Rourke
Dr. Mackenzie Daniels was a loner. He had the divorce, a far-away family, and well-known cranky persona to prove it. And if he had his way, he would continue on his loner way, in spite of the attempts of the townspeople to infiltrate his life with their irritating, so-called charming ways. That was…until he met the beautiful Nurse Millicent Robbins.
Millie Robbins had done the love and marriage thing, and all she could say was that she got a beautiful daughter out of the entire debacle. Love was not in her long-term plans when she graduated from nursing school, thank you very much….until she found herself falling head over heels for the grouchiest but most gorgeous doctor she’d ever met.
Can Mack and Millie find their way to love in spite of their histories? Can happiness actually exist for two star-crossed lovers?
Join the entire town of Paradise for a Christmas celebration of lasting love!
“Fine. What about a favor, huh? Friends do favors for each other all the time, don’t they?” Mack volleyed smoothly, studying her. “How about you do me this favor, Millicent? You won’t deny me that, will you? Especially since you’re the one that got me into this predicament.”
“No, I suppose not. I’d be happy to spend the holidays with you and your family.”
“Same here,” he admitted softly. “Now, how do you feel about you and Paisley helping me decorate my place tomorrow? It’s Saturday. We both have the day off unless one of my patients decides to go into labor, and since nobody is that close to delivery yet, I think we’re pretty clear there. My family expects to fly into Paradise and find my home a completely undecorated mess.”
My favorite quote from The Homespun Holiday is:
“Listen, lady. I’ve been a doctor for a long time, and never once have I heard a vagina say meow.” – Dr. Mackenzie Daniels, the Hero of The Homespun Holiday
