Down and Dirty
Publication date: June 1st 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Women come and go from my bed but they’ll never have my heart.
There’s only one girl I’m committed to and that’s my six-year-old daughter.
Every dirty deal I make is to secure a good future for her.
When I find Natalie in the back of my truck ready to die fighting, everything gets flipped upside down.
I saved her life and took her home. Her stay was supposed to be temporary but I don’t want her to leave.
I want to feel her soft, sweet body writhing underneath me, begging for more and never stopping.
But what’s really got my head spinning?
My daughter wants a mother.
I escaped Hell only to run right into the arms of another demon.
But Solomon says he won’t hurt me, not in that way.
He’ll keep them from finding me, but can I trust him?
He’s just another criminal working with the one who captured me.
I feel ruined from what I’ve been through but somehow, he makes my body come alive again.
He reminds me what pleasure feels like and I can’t get enough.
I’m beyond torn in multiple directions but that’s not the most confusing part.
How can a tattooed, muscle-bound criminal also be such a caring, devoted father?
Down and Dirty is a full-length standalone bad boy romance in my Small Town Bad Boy series. Absolutely no cliffhangers and guaranteed HEA!
Q&A with author Annette Fields:
When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
Somewhere around 8-10 years old. My dad was always writing, be it journaling or poetry, so I picked it up early in wanting to be just like him. I also read a lot as a kid and had teachers that encouraged creative writing at that age.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I can’t sit in one place in a writing session. At some point I always have to move from my desk to the kitchen table, or to the floor, or to the library or coffee shop. I’ve given up trying to fight this and found that I write more and better if I switch up my space a little.
Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Google is amazing tool, haha! I use the internet for nitty gritty details but a lot of my ideas are based on what I have actually experienced, either firsthand or through people I know. For example my character Liam is inspired by people close to me who have worked in law enforcement.
Also at one point I worked in a brewery like my character Aubrey in Big Bad Boss. She’s loosely based on a couple of awesome female coworkers I had at that time.
When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I was around 14 when I made my first attempt a novel. I was really into vampires and witches at the time (pre-Twilight days!) and wrote a story that would probably be considered YA urban fantasy. That one’s never been published though! I’m not sure if it still exists…
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
I do yoga, read books whenever I have the chance, and play boardgames with friends. I love gardening and may have an obsession with plants (there’s definitely a little of me in my character Dahlia from this series!)
What do you think makes a good story?
Complex and flawed characters. The ones that make you want to cry, cheer, and scream “Noooo, what are you doing!”
