Loving the Book Presents: Walker Pride by Bernadette Marie;

Bestselling Author Bernadette Marie is known for building
families readers want to be part of. Her series The Keller Family has graced bestseller charts since its release in 2011, along with her other series and single title books. The married mother of five sons promises Happily Ever After always…and says she can write it, because she lives it.

When not writing, Bernadette Marie is shuffling her sons to
their many events—mostly hockey—and enjoying the beautiful views of the Colorado Rocky Mountains from her front step. She is also an accomplished martial artist with a second degree black belt in Tang Soo Do.

A chronic entrepreneur, Bernadette Marie opened her own
publishing house in 2011, 5 Prince Publishing, so that she could publish the books she liked to write and help make the dreams of other aspiring authors come true too. Bernadette Marie is also the CEO of Illumination Author Events.
  • 1.       What are your inspirations?
    • a.      I’m inspired by everything. I kid you not. The way the leaves look today inspires me as much as a single line in a song. Some days my kids inspire me with their knowledge, other days by the amount of messes they leave around. I’m a grand observer and inspiration is everywhere.
  •  2.   How did you come to write this particular book or series?
    • a.       This series is greatly designed by my readers. When my last series, The Keller Family, drew to an end I asked my readers where the next family should rein from and what their name should be. That was enough to begin to create the Walker Family.
  • 3.      What was the hardest part of writing your book, and how did you overcome it?
    • a.       The hardest part in writing a book for me is staying awake to keep writing when the story is flowing, but my eyes won’t keep open.  Yes, I’ve been known to write with my eyes closed. My kids think it’s a funny skill.
  • 4.      What is your writing drive? The power that keeps you going when your writing gets difficult?
    • a.  Writing is my calling—therefore my drive as well. I can always find time to write even with life gets in the way. It is my special super power if you will—or my drug. I have to write every day to keep sane.  Luckily, since it is my calling, writing never seems to be difficult for me.

 Susan Hayes moved to Georgia to start the life she wanted to live and build her catering career. On the brink of having everything she ever wanted, Eric Walker and his family happened into her life.

Eric Walker’s life had been quiet, structured, and boring until his uncle gambled away the family’s property and jeopardized Eric’s livelihood. Now midst family secrets learned, someone ruining his business and trying to drive him off his land, he fell in love.

Things will never be the same for them—especially if someone succeeds in destroying the Walker family and killing Eric.

~Eric Walker pulled up the collar of his jacket and let out a sigh. It was appropriate for the day to be gloomy, he thought. When you laid someone in the ground, it was fitting for it to rain or be down right cold, as it was today.

~As the road to the house tossed him back and forth he adjusted the dial on his radio. It was the kind of day for wallowing in misery with Hank.

~He’d wanted to see where she lived—how she lived.
It was an intimate peek into a stranger’s life.
Tucking his hands under his head, he wondered if it was so bad to want to know more about someone you just met. Maybe if he pried a little into her life he could forget the mess brewing in his own.

~Susan lifted her hands to his chest. She could feel his heart pound beneath her fingertips. When she lifted her eyes to meet his they were dreamy—lost—staring back into hers.
It was foolish to think that this man was going to be around for longer than a month. He was only warding off the week he’d had. She was his distraction.
Then he moved his head, lowered it to hers, and covered her mouth with his. Susan closed her eyes and inhaled his kiss.
Maybe he was equally her distraction too.

~Shifting a glance to her he noticed how delicate the skin was on her neck. It would be a damn shame to not press his lips to that pulse point just once.
 The thought alone nearly had him light headed.
When she looked up at him and her eyelashes batted a moment before she licked her lips, he was gone.
Eric swiftly pulled her to him and took possession of her mouth as if his life depended on it.
