Alec by L.A. Casey

Alec by L.A. Casey
(Slater Brothers #2)
Publication date: August 17th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Keela Daley is the black sheep of her family. She has always come second to her younger cousin Micah. Even in the eyes of her mother, Micah shone bright, and Keela faded to black. Now, in adulthood, Micah is a bride-to-be and the spotlight is solely on her. Keela is a low priority…or so she thinks.
Alec Slater is a bachelor, never one to bed the same woman, or man, twice. He is a free agent who does what he pleases and answers to no one; that is until a fiery Irish redhead with a temper to match her hair colour knocks him on his arse. Literally.
She hates to admit it, but Keela needs a favour from the cocky Slater brother, a huge favour. She needs him to not only escort her to Micah’s wedding, but to also pose as her boyfriend. Alec agrees to help Keela, but has certain conditions for her to abide by. He wants her body and plans to have it before anyone can say I do.
What he doesn’t plan on is losing his heart as well as the possibility of losing his family when someone from his past threatens his future.
Alec owns Keela, and what Alec owns, Alec keeps.

Do dreams ever inspire your writing? What did you last dream about?
YES! Whenever I get an idea for a book, or even for a still scene I dream about it or day dream about it until I write it down and get it out of my head.

I started when I was nineteen, and I was twenty two when I published my first book.

What is it about chick lit / romance that appeals to you the most? Do you read other genres? 
I like romance novels simply because I’m a hopeless romantic. I read all sub genre of romance, once there romance and an appealing synopsis I’m happy.

Can you tell us a little about your latest book, Alec?
Alec, like Dominic, is a standalone romantic comedy. The book has some seriousness in it, but there is humour laced throughout the book to take the edge off.

It sounds like it might be a bit raunchy? Is that the case?
Alec is still apart of the New Adult genre so it’s not that steamy, but to an extend things do get pretty hot and uhmm… graphic ;)

What inspired you to write it?
The people in my head.

Who designs your covers?
Mayhem Cover Creations.

Hard question because I can never see my characters in anyone, I’m happy enough going along with the fan’s favourites.
