Briefly explain the relationships of some of the characters in the book.
Briefly – now there’s a challenge!
Okay, so we have the Davies family; Simon and Veronica, who have four children; Sebastian, Dylan, Tyler, and Constance. They have adopted others along the way! Chris Martin is Sebastian’s best friend, and together they own Winchester Brothers (which started with a chain of restaurants). Lily-May Saunders is Dylan’s best friend, and was taken into the family one fateful night when she was only a child. That leaves brother and sister, Adrienne Baxter and James Colby. They were both adopted but lost their family when they were both teenagers – they have supported each other ever since. It’s difficult to explain the relationship with a limited number of words because all these characters interlink. Tyler Davies was one of the firefighters who saved Adrienne and James from a fire. It was this experience which cemented their friendship.
Tell us about Addy’s job as a radio personality.
Addy has a deep, smoky voice which earned her the reputation ‘Morning Glory!’ She is gregarious on air, larger than life and has a natural humour which draws her listeners in. She enjoys to banter, and to get people involved with the show. She comes alive behind the microphone and excels on the morning breakfast show.
What can you tell us about Sebastian without giving too much away?
Sebastian is confident, charismatic, and committed. He is a restaurateur, savvy businessman, and is accustomed to the limelight. He has a lighter side and, at the root, is a family man. That said, he has a competitive streak and goes after what he wants with a single-minded focus, inherited from his mother.
Until recently he lived a nomadic existence, intent on chasing the next big adventure. It wasn’t until he returned to Winchester that he realized how much he had missed his home.
Where does Lucy fit in?
That’s hard to say without giving away any spoilers, especially for those who haven’t yet read Addy’s Choice. Let’s just say she appears out of the blue, to mix things up! Lucy has had her share of heartache, and is desperate to make a connection to the only family she has left.
What are some of the things in life Addy is most scared of and how does she overcome her fears?
Addy has never really fit in. Not until she was a teenager and finally found a home – a home which was torn away from her. She found a new family when she began working at the radio station, Music 101, but her naivety and desire for connection, led her down the wrong path. It is these experiences which make it difficult for Addy to open her heart, to trust people. Her main fears are familiar – she is terrified of change, and of losing the people she cares about – of being hurt again. Fortunately, she has her brother, James; her best friend, Tyler, and Simon Davies – head of the station, and each are able to influence a change. She overcomes her fear by taking a leap of faith, risking everything because of the example set by those she holds dear.

Sometimes the hardest thing about lowering our defenses is the fear of how far we might fall.
That fear had been Adrienne Baxter’s driving force most of her life. It was far easier to hide behind her radio personality, feeding from her audience, than to risk exposure.
She had James, her brother by choice if not by blood. It was enough – most of the time.
As the co-host of the early morning breakfast show at Music 101, Adrienne is the confident, sassy presenter with the silver tongue and fast-talking wit.
When she meets Sebastian Davies, the station owner’s son, her carefully applied façade begins to slip. He presents a new kind of danger, because this time she could lose her heart.

Tyler Davies was eighteen when he met the fiery beast he would later battle on a regular basis. Seduced by the beauty of her flaming touch, he had looked right into the heart of the fire and known she had claimed him.
It was the second time he’d seen his future. The first was the day he met Lilly-May Saunders, a girl who burned so bright he was blind to anyone else. If it hadn’t been for her friendship with his brother, a relationship he didn’t truly understand, he would have confessed his feelings. But when his friend dies in the line of duty, and Tyler discovers the truth behind the accident, everything changes. Those he loves are in danger, and the one who owns his heart is at the top of the list.
