Exquisite (Exquisite Series)

   

Book Decription:

Publication Date:October 8, 2012


Her heart was guarded…

Tormented by self-imposed guilt, Dr Lena O’Donnell has spent the last nine years in survival mode. Struggling through days that seem to blend together and battling her way through each horrifying night, she’s determined that this is what she deserves…

Until he tore down the walls…

Mason Langley’s life is going exactly the way he planned it, until her. A confirmed bachelor and the successful owner of the hottest restaurant to hit Chicago, he never expected to be blindsided by an angry woman in a pair of scrubs. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t seem to shake the doctor, and he finds himself liking the way she makes him feel.

Almost over night Lena finds her world turned upside down by Mason and the sexual desire they discover together. Slowly, she lowers her guard and invites him inside but when tragedy strikes she begins to believe that sometimes it’s better to be alone and safe than to love and lose…






First I want to say, WOW. Exquisite is truly that... Exquisite! This book is a diamond in the rough and I completely enjoyed it.. I laughed, I cried, I smiled, and I got turned on like crazy! I truly can not wait until Entice comes out.

An Interview With Ella Frank! 

What made you decide to finally pick up a pen and start working towards that dream of writing a novel?
I have always loved to write and have for years but honestly it was a really good friend of mine. She read the first chapter and then asked, well? Where's the rest? A month later she had the rest!
So we all love our fictional characters, especially our male ones, so I have to know, was Mason derived from anyone?
Mason is 100% fictional, however in saying that I wanted him to be essentially a good guy and I took that trait from my husband. Sure at the end he has his moment where you may want to yell WAKE UP! However, I really believe and have seen many people react completely irrationally to the death of a loved one and unfortunately it is often the ones we love the most that we lash out at. In the end I want Mason to be a man any woman would want to have by their side and in their life, he's sexy, kind, sweet and loves his family.. Who wouldn't want that?
Were there any specific books or authors that inspired you to write?
I love romance!! All romance novels inspire me and I have been told I look at everything through rose colored glasses. There isn't a specific author just a genre I can't get enough of. I love the thought that in the end everyone gets someone and we all deserve a happily ever after.
As a recently self published author do you have any advice for those (like me) who are currently trying to write as well?
Don't give up! Sit down and write your story - be happy with it. I also found myself four amazing ladies who critique my stories, so I recommend that and then get and editor. Oh and ENJOY YOURSELF!
Did you find writing a "love" scene challenging? And if so what helped you over come that hurdle?
No, I LOVE writing them. They are so much fun to write..lol. I actually found myself the other day, while writing Shelly's story, just glancing around my house wondering where and how..it really can be such fun writing up a steamy scene ;-)
What was your favorite scene to write?
Probably the jogging scene which was then followed by the dirty...ahem..clean shower scene. I LOVED writing the poignant moments and actually the first scene of the whole book I wrote was the fight at Mason's condo - but the jogging scene was great because I honestly had no clue where I was taking it and then Mason mentioned a shower and I thought...what?? What do you mean a shower..but then he well showed me!!

         And lastly, (I figured twenty questions was a lot) how many books do you         anticipate to write in this truely amazing series?
There's three. I wanted the series to be based on the women. So there's Lena's story, then Shelly who is a bit of a firecracker and then we go back to Rachel. The best part about a series is we get to see the progression of everyone through each book. So if you loved them in the first book you get to catch up with them again and again!

  8. There are so many how could I choose just one. Oh yeah and the baby link is not working. I guess if I had to pick one it would be the last book my dad read me when I was five just right before turkey day and that book was Where The Red Fern grows. We all cried even daddy. We lost him five days before Christmas that year. And another reason it sticks on my mind he got the tickle monster on all of us That was a wonderful time and a wonderful book.

  12. My favourite book is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. The entire series is phenomenal. It was my first introduction to the romance genre but her books are so much more than romance. It was also my first introduction to amazingly written love/sex scenes!!! I was reading a lot of spy novels written by men and their style of sex scenes is something completely different!

  13. My favourite book so far is still Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Although there are many on my list of great reads!

  14. I don't really have a favorite book, but I do have a favorite series. The War Of The Fae series by Elle Casey. A very close second is the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. As an aspiring writer, the most difficult part for me is a romantic scene. I love reading books where the authors pull it off beautifully, and this book seems to do just that. Great giveaway!

  15. I've read so many books lately that I've loved, so I don't think I can pick a favorite. I've loved the Breathing series by Rebecca Donovan, The Elemental Mysteries series by Elizabeth Hunter, Crossfire series by Sylvia Day - among others - so I really can't pick a favorite. Great giveaway! Thanks :)
