First and Fourth Fridays is thrilled to welcome best-selling author Kimberley Troutte. Let’s meet Kimberley.

Kimberley Troutte is a NY Times, USA Today and Amazon Top 100 bestselling author as well as being in the Top 10 on Amazon for Romantic Suspense. She lives in Southern California with her husband, two sons, one dog, a wild cat, an old snake and all the other creatures hubby and boys rescue.

And now to the four questions!

 

1) What was the first book that so captured your imagination that you felt a physical loss when you reached the last page?
Good question. I’ve experienced this many times with really good books. When I’m deeply involved in a book, or series, I find myself slowing down because I don’t want it to end. One of the first times I can remember that happening was when I was a teen and read The Clan of the Cave Bear books. Gosh, they were good. Sometimes it happens when I am writing my own books too. I find myself dragging my heels toward the end. With GOD WHISPERER, I felt an overwhelming loss when I typed the last page. I didn’t want to stop.

2) What is the most romantic/loving thing you’ve ever done for someone else?

When my boyfriend turned 21, I planned a whole surprise day for him. I made him breakfast and had it ready and waiting for us on a picnic table at a park overlooking the Pacific. Thanks go to my mother and sister for helping out. After breakfast, he unwrapped the gift I made especially for him–a framed poster of a beauty in a bikini (ahem, it was me, of course). We hustled over to the marina for a two-hour catamaran ride I’d hired for just the two of us. It was a fun day. Hmmm, whatever happened to that boy? Oh, right. I married him. And the bikini poster is hanging in the garage.

3) What is the most romantic/sweet/loving thing someone has ever done for you?

You know what? My life is full of loving and sweet things. My parents and sister are all generous and loving people. I grew up in a wonderful household. I married the boy of my dreams and together we are raising two beautiful, loving boys. Life is sweet. My hubby does romantic things for me all the time, like massaging my back and holding my hand in public. I love him with all of my heart and he loves me. I really couldn’t ask for more.

4) What do you think is the most romantic song?

Now that’s a tough one. There are several songs that make me melt. Off the bat, I can think of two. I sigh when I hear “Lady in Red” because the band played it at my wedding for all the bridesmaids dressed in red. I loved “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias so much that I incorporated it into my first novel, CATCH ME IN CASTILE.

Wow, no wonder Kimberley writes so well about the romantic life – she’s living it. Kimberley’s latest release is included in the USA Today Bestselling SEALs of Winter boxed set. Nine brand new Navy SEAL romance heroes from your favorite NYT & USA Today bestselling authors: Cora Seton, Elle Kennedy, Jennifer Lowery, Elle James, Anne Marsh, S. M.

They’re both in enemy crosshairs. Staying together is dangerous. Separating? Impossible.
