Love Rekindled by Michelle Lynn Teaser, Interview & Excerpt

Love Rekindled (Love Surfaced Series, Book 2) 


Taylor Delaney is the love of my life.
She’s also the one I've hurt the most.
Two years ago, I made a disastrous mistake.
One I’m not sure I can make amends from.
But I have to try, because I’m nothing without her.

Brad Ashby's here, in my hometown, asking for a second chance.
All those unresolved feelings for him have resurfaced.
Not that they ever went away.
I know I should run him out of the town, but I can’t.
He needs to know that I wasn’t the only one who was deceived.

Even if we gave our relationship another try, how can we rebuild what’s been destroyed? If we weren’t strong enough then, what makes us strong enough now?

I'm a cheater. There. I said it. Two years ago, I fell into a hole, and as fast as my fingers clawed to escape, the dirt continued to pile on me. I'm not saying it's an excuse. I'm not even saying she should forgive me. Although, I hope she does. But I can't live without her anymore. I tried. I found a girl and proposed to her, while imagining the delicate finger I slid the ring on belonged to someone else. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't go through with marrying anyone but her. For sure, I never thought I'd say this, but I'm nothing without her. She brings out the good in me. That's why I'm here, in some small-a*s town, to grovel my way back into her heart.

She's different now, and I'm not referring to the disappearance of her bleached blonde hair back to her natural brown. I loved her as a blonde, but the dark suits her better. I wouldn't care if she had rainbow-colored hair. I'm not sitting outside the hospital where she works, watching her walk to her car like some stalker, because she’s gorgeous. I’m here because of her heart and kindness. That’s what I’m fighting to get back. The package it comes in is just an added bonus.

Love Surfaced (Love Surfaced Series, Book 1)


The equations are simple.

Piper Ashby + Brad Ashby = Twin Siblings
Brad Ashby + Tanner McCain = Best Friends
Piper Ashby + Tanner McCain = Off limits

Tanner and I abided by the rules. We stayed on our designated sides of the relationship circle.

Ignoring swarming butterflies.
Brushing off skipped heartbeats.
Settling on lingering stares.

Here’s the secret … a hand extended over that invisible line once, exponentially changing the equation. I was convinced we could make our relationship work until Tanner broke the trust he embedded in me from the age of seven.

One deceit of mega proportions and the relationship we built for that short month vanished. I swore never to speak to him again and it’s worked. Until now—two years later, when my brother’s wedding places me face-to-face with the best man—Tanner McCain.
Leaving one equation to be solved. Can love surface twice?

USA Today Bestselling author, Michelle Lynn moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids.  She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write.   With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends.  But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.

1.  When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
Since a young age, but I never pursued it once I got older and went to college (one of my biggest regrets).
2.  How long does it take you to write a book?
I usually write a book in 6 weeks, but then I have a lot of editing to do. So, all in all, I would say 3 to 4 months to be complete.
3.  What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
I was fortunate enough to make writing my full-time job a few years ago. Now that my kids are in school all day, I work 5 days a week plus weekends, usually. You can often find me with my laptop at all times of the day, including at night.
4.  What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
This is slightly embarrassing, but I get my best writing done when I don’t shower in the morning. I hustle my kids to the bus, go to my computer and just write all day. For some reason I don’t complete as much or I’m not in the mindset if I shower. Crazy, I know.
5.  How do books get published?
I publish mine in Amazon, ibooks, B & N, and Kobo. Once your novel is ready, you have a formatter or you format it yourself for each platform and you upload your files.
6.  Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Much of my ideas start small and then festers. A song might trigger an idea, or an incident that I witness between people (or what I assume is happening). Usually a seed gets planted in my mind and then the story grows from there.
7.  When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I remember writing a book in middle school.
8.  What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Spending time with my family and friends. My family specifically sacrifices a lot due to my chosen path. So, making sure they get my undivided attention is a must when I’m not on deadline.
9.  What does your family think of your writing?
I couldn’t ask for a more supportive family.
10.             What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
 When I first wrote my book, I just typed and typed until the end. How much you still have to perfect that book after your first draft, I was so naïve.
11.             How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
Love Rekindled is my thirteenth book. No favorites, that’d be like picking a favorite child! haha
12.             Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?
If you want to be a writer, I suggest you write your story and then take a few craft classes. If you’re a member of RWA (Romance Writers Association) they offer a lot of online classes, or you can search other ones out. Learn the ways to make your book stronger. I had a lot of books out before I really sought out professional help.
13.             Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
Yes, on occasion I hear from readers, which really keeps me going. I’ve been fortunate to only have positive things messaged to me from my readers.
14.             Do you like to create books for adults?
15.             What do you think makes a good story?
I think I write what I like to read. My books always have a HEA (Happily Ever After), my romance books are sweet and usually my hero is strong, protective, and attentive to his heroine.
16.             As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
I had wanted to be a teacher, and a writer. Usually flipping between the two often. The crazy part is I graduated with a degree in Social Worker with a minor in Psychology. To a certain degree I think that has helped me in my writing.
17.             What Would you like my readers to know?
If they are looking for a few sweet yet Alpha guys, take a chance on my books and see if they are for you.
