the Debut of Andie J. Christopher

STROKE OF MIDNIGHT
One Night in South Beach #1
Lyrical/Kensington

One night.
New Year’s Eve in Miami. Even workaholic Alana Hernandez can’t resist the call of the city, especially if it will get her little sister off her back. But a night of celebrating turns into a night of mischief when an alluring stranger catches her eye across the dance floor.
 
No names.
Former Navy Seal Cole Roberts isn’t looking for anything more than a good time in Miami. Since leaving the military and being betrayed by his former fiancée, he’s not interested in unnecessary complications. But the moment he sets eyes on the sultry beauty, Cole knows this night will be far from ordinary.

No going back.
Neither Cole nor Alana are looking for a relationship, so they strike a deal: One night. No names. No repeats. But things get complicated when their night of passion becomes something neither can walk away from.

“Stroke of Midnight is the epitome of a page-turner. The multi-dimensional characters are vulnerable and simply pulsate with unbridled lust and passion.” –RT Book Reviews, 4-star review

I’m ANDIE J. CHRISTOPHER and I write edgy, funny, sexy contemporary romance. I grew up in a family of voracious readers, and I picked up my first Harlequin Romance novel at age twelve when I’d finished reading everything else in my grandmother’s house. It was love at first read. It wasn’t too long before I started writing my own stories — my first heroine drank Campari and wore a lot of Esprit.

Although, I set aside writing fiction for a while, my love of reading romance novels stayed with me through college, law school, and multiple cross-country moves. During one long East Coast winter, I decided writing a book would be a good excuse to avoid braving the elements. It was love at first write. My heroes are dirty-talking alphas, and my heroines traded Esprit for Free People. (None of them would turn down a Campari, though.)

TELL THE TRUTH
ANGI: How often to you get lost in a story?
ANDIE: I get lost in a story at least once a week, either one I’m writing or one I’m reading. I know I’m onto something in my writing when hours seem to pass in seconds. It doesn’t happen every day, but it’s a very good day when it does. I’ve loved writing the One Night in South Beach series because I can get lost in one of my favorite places on earth!
 
ANGI: Hugh Jackman or Chris Pine?
ANDIE: Chris Pine. Now that he’s all beardy, I can’t get enough. He actually reminds me a bit of my hero, Cole Roberts, even though he wasn’t the original hero inspiration.

ANGI: What do you like about the hero of your book?
ANDIE: In my mom’s words, “there are no guys in real life like Cole Roberts.” Cole is not only a former Navy SEAL, but he’s crazy smart, and willing to take a chance and open himself up to Alana (the heroine) even though it’s complicated (he’s friends with her brother) and he’s been burned before. And he’s always going to make sure his woman’s needs (all of them) are fulfilled. He’s the total package.

ANGI: Sand or Snow?
ANDIE: Sand! There’s a reason I set STROKE OF MIDNIGHT in Miami. My best friend from college moved there with her now-husband after law school, and the first time I visited—for her engagement party—was pure magic. I fell in love with the people, the food, the atmosphere, and the weather was just icing on the cake. I love writing the One Night in South Beach series because I get to spend time in Miami whenever I want.

ANGI: What might we find in your heroine's purse?
ANDIE: In Alana’s purse, you’re going to find at least two or three lipsticks, extra underwear for when she has to sleep at her desk, designer sunglasses, and a cell phone with at least five missed calls from her baby sister.

ANGI: Would you rather be in a Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
ANDIE: Personally? I would rather be in a fairy tale. I want to wear a gorgeous dress, dance with a prince, and get a castle in the end.

ANGI: What’s your favorite rerun on television?
ANDIE: I am actually super excited about the fact that the Golden Girls is going to be on Hulu on February 13. (I think I’ll be spending my Valentine’s Day in front of the TV with cheesecake).

ANGI: What drinks or snacks are always on your desk when you’re writing?
ANDIE: I always have water, and, if it’s before noon, coffee. (If it’s after five, there’s probably a glass of wine.)

ANGI’S GOTTA ASK: What’s one thing from your bucket list?
ANDIE  GOTTA ANSWER:   I don’t really have a bucket list. I’ve been lucky enough to visit wonderful places, see wonderful things, and befriend so many wonderful people just by following my passions that I’ve kind of learned to take things as they go.

Part of the HOT ON ICE Anthology

A hockey player with a bounty on his virginity. A sarcastic bartender with no time for shenanigans.

Leftwinger Anders Sorenson’s life-long focus on hockey came with a price - a price he never minded paying until reaching a crossroads in his career and meeting Dahlia Clarno. The eccentric bartender is hot, she doesn’t care about his fame, and she has no idea about the bounty his teammates have on his virginity. She’s the total package for a vacation fling.

 Dahlia has no use for a man right now. She needs to be focused on paying off her failed business debts and getting out of her hometown (for good this time), not mooning over a six-four hunk of Viking-sex. When Dahlia finds out about the bet, it strengthens her resolve to stay far away from Anders. But his earnest smile and surprising smolder are hell on her resistance. 

Anders wants to turn over his v-card to Dahlia, and he thinks he can trust her. Dahlia knows about the bounty, and the feelings she’s developing for Anders would make it wrong for her to cash in. Besides, it’s not like this vacation fling could ever turn into something more. . .

One Night in South Beach 2

No boundaries.
Bartender and aspiring painter Maya Pascual loves turning up the heat. And dumping a vodka-and-karma chaser on the man who broke her heart is perfect Bronx girl payback. But how can she resist when Miami playboy prince Javier Hernandez begs to make it up to her. . .

No regrets.
Between his disastrous personal life and his wealthy family’s meddling, Javi needs to get back on track. The only thing that’s certain is his passion for Maya. If she’ll just let him show her how sorry he is, maybe he can move on and start fresh. But one look in her gorgeous eyes and he knows letting her go will be easier said than done.

No rules.
Maya agrees to one dinner with Javi. But as their attraction threatens to combust, she wonders if a night of no strings, no repeats surrender is the only way burn off their desire once and for all… Unless the light of day reveals it’s impossible to let go.

  7. I love going to Ca to visit my family and my son always takes me to the ocean. That is my first stop as I miss the water so much. I used to live in Ca and married and moved to Ia. The other question what makes it a one click i am assuming when you are on amazon as example what make the one click and i say the author and know a bit about the book but the author. I know Angi is a great writer and i know that her books are wonderful contain everything that i like to read so she is a one click for me if i had a chance to go to amazon and make a purchase!

  9. A series will be one click for me if: Characters that are interesting and likable. An over-arching theme, story line, mystery, or organization that ties the series together and is interesting. An author I like.

  11. I honestly have no idea. Nothing is 1 click for me. I spend time with things before I decide. Also I am new to reading fiction.
