Alexa Bourne Interviews Her Heroine, Tessa, from DANCE AWAY, DANGER

Hello, hello! Today I’m interviewing Tessa, the heroine in my latest romantic suspense book, DANCE AWAY, DANGER. Let’s get started!

Alexa: Can you tell us about a real-life hero you’ve met?
Tessa: I kind of think my brother Jason and his friend Matt heroes. They were in the military together and fought for the very freedoms I get to enjoy. Both of them were wounded in battle.

Alexa: If you were given a chance to travel to the past where would you go and specifically why?
Tessa: I’d like to go to the years where my parents were teenagers and just getting together. I think it would be really cool to see them as young and in love. Sadly my brother and I lost our parents in a car accident when I was 12.

Alexa: What is your favorite tradition from your childhood that you would love to pass on or did pass on to your children?
Tessa: When my mother was alive, she and I used to go on a trip together every year. We’d call it Girls’ Weekend. We’d go away somewhere out of town, just the two of us, for a couple of nights. We’d go out to eat, shop, hang out in the pool if there was one. It was just a special time for us. I always treasured those trips. I hope to have Girls’ Weekends with my own daughter some day.

Alexa: What will always make you smile, even on a bad day?
Tessa: I know this is horrible of me, but I love to watch my brother give Matt a hard time, especially about me. In reality I know my brother is okay with me being together with Matt, but I’m still his little sister and he’s always looked out for me.

Alexa: What’s the best birthday present you ever received?
Tessa: Oh, that’s easy. A surprise trip to Ireland for my birthday. I won’t say anything else. Alexa will kill me if I do. 

Alexa: That’s right. I will. People need to read the book to find out the details! Thank you to Tessa for joining us today and thank you to the Happily Ever After Thoughts gang, especially Lexi, for inviting us to hang out here!

I hope you’ll follow me this coming week. I’m touring several blogs and sharing something different about Dance Away, Danger each day. If you leave comments anywhere along the way, you’ll be in the running for a Dance Away, Danger prize pack!

Sensible dance instructor Tessa Gage likes her life organized, risk-free and on her own terms. When her cop brother goes missing, his crooked partner tries to kill her, and a handsome stranger claims he’s come to protect her, she’s forced to leave her comfort zone. With more dance and business sense than survival skills and no idea who to trust, Tessa has no choice but to rely on this man who’d rather be anywhere but by her side.
When carefree carpenter Matt Rylan gets a late night call from an Army buddy who once saved his life, he finds himself where he never again wanted to be—responsible for someone else. Honor demands Matt cooperate, but he never expects his simple babysitting job to test the limits of his self-control. Nor does he expect it to explode into a race against time for his very freedom.
As Tessa and Matt get closer to the truth, and to each other, Tessa learns to step outside the safety of her world to help set the wheels of justice in motion. For Matt, supporting this courageous woman suddenly becomes everything to him.  Yet, his biggest challenge remains sharing his closed-off heart with her before the danger silences them both forever.

Alexa Bourne is a teacher by day and a romance writer by nights, weekends, and all school holidays. She also teaches online classes for writers throughout the year. She writes romantic suspense and contemporary romance and is thrilled to have the chance to share her stories with readers everywhere.
When she’s not concocting sinister plots and steamy love scenes or traveling and exploring new cultures, Alexa spends her time reading, watching brainless TV, and thinking about exercising. Okay, she also spends way too much time interacting with readers and writers on social media sites. But don’t tell her editors! Find out more about her and her books on her website,
