What happens when the man you love falls in love with someone else?

Mayfair Island, Florida. Grief-stricken after the sudden loss of her beloved grandmother, an enduring but reclusive Hollywood icon, young Priscilla Bauer finds herself adrift and looking to find solace in the arms of her vast inheritance, when she meets the kind and considerate corporate brand designer, Michael Frost—a drop dead gorgeous beacon of light in her all too dark night.

About the Author:
No one does family and relationship drama quite like bestselling author Millenia Black! Heralded as a double life and relationship expert, she's been a featured guest on radio shows across the country, discussing the 7 Smoke Signals Your Man is Living a Double Life.

A celebrated alumnus of Keiser University, Millenia lives in the State of Florida where she's currently hard at work on BLUE SATIN SASHES, book two of the highly acclaimed Favorite Things Trilogy!

Currently unmarried, she's never dated anyone living a double life...

She thinks.


Where are you from?
I'm from the tropical paradise of Florida, born and raised!
Tell us your latest news?
Well, I just released my first novel in eight years, RAINDROPS ON ROSES, which is Book One of my brand new Favorite Things Trilogy, which features a razor-sharp love triangle! And I'm SO excited for everyone to read it!
When and why did you begin writing?
In college. Prior to that the thought had never even crossed my mind! But we got an assignment to write a poem that we had to read to the class; the positive reaction I got set me off in the 'write' direction, so to speak. ;-)
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I'm not sure I do consider myself a writer, per se. I feel like more of a storyteller, which is a whole lot more fun!
What inspired you to write your first book?
My first book was THE GREAT PRETENDER—the story of a man who lives a double life for several years, going back and forth between two separate families—and he gets away with it!
I remember thinking about the fact that most women who get involved with married men usually know they're married, or find out before too long; but I got excited about the idea of exploring a high tension circumstance in which a woman doesn't find out for many years!
Do you have a specific writing style?
Engaging, I hope!
How did you come up with the title?
For RAINDROPS ON ROSES: I've always loved the Favorite Things song from "The Sound of Music" and one day the idea for a chain of high-end boutique hotels popped into my head— and the Favorite Things Trilogy was born!
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Indeed. It's never a good idea to allow yourself to be defined by (or completely dependent on, anyone)—especially not a man, ladies! Some seriously crazy things tend to happen when a woman's not emotionally healthy and independent!

How much of the book is realistic?
100%. Dramatic love triangles and co-dependent relationships are playing out all around us, everywhere in the world, every single day!
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Not at all. It's all from my own wonderful imagination!
What books have influenced your life most?
In fiction, the most influential would be THE GOOD EARTH by Pearl S. Buck. I love the emotional truth and the lessons about loyalty, struggle and betrayal.
In non-fiction, it's super hard to pick just one, but I'll go with A NEW EARTH by Eckhart Tolle—a definite turning point in my life!
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I'd go with Sidney Sheldon. Why not? He was King of the page-turner!
What book are you reading now?
I just started reading A WEEK IN WINTER by Maeve Binchy, her final book before she passed away a couple years ago.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Absolutely! Two who stand out right now are Shilpi Somaya Gowda, author of SECRET DAUGHTER, a true gem of a read! And Lawrence Hill, author of the amazingly epic novel, SOMEONE KNOWS MY NAME! I highly recommend both—great writers!
What are your current projects?
Right now I'm hard at work on the second book of the Favorite Things Trilogy, BLUE SATIN SASHES! Very exciting!
What would you like my readers to know?
Thank you so much for following my book tour and I truly hope you enjoy reading RAINDROPS ON ROSES!
