FEATURED BOOK AND INTERVIEW: Saved by the Fireman by Allie Pleiter


Building their future  
Charlotte Taylor isn't good at playing it safe. Reeling from the sudden loss of her job and her beloved grandmother, Charlotte knows buying a dilapidated cottage in Gordon Falls isn't exactly practical. Especially since she just hired the one man who may love the property more than she does to help renovate it. Volunteer firefighter and part-time contractor Jesse Sykes can't stay mad at Charlotte for very long. Though she snatched up the home he'd planned on purchasing, Charlotte's dreams are big enough for both of them…if only she'd let him in. Charlotte promised she'd never fall for a first responder, but is it already too late?
Interview:

How exciting to have Charlotte Taylor the heroine from SAVED BY THE FIREMAN written by Allie Pleiter a November 2014 release from Love Inspired Romance .

1.       Charlotte, tell me the most interesting thing about you.
I work as a marketing coordinator for Monarch Textile Artswell, at least I did up until last week.  Now Im using the time in between offers to buy and fix up the most darling little cottage in Gordon Falls.  My MimaI lost her, too, earlier this yearleft me money to do something worthwhile and adventurous, and she would have loved this cottage.
2.  What do you do for fun?
I collect vintage china, I knita lotand Im scouring every flea market and home furnishings shop in the state to find the perfect look for my new home.
3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?
Thinking about the teeny tiny possibility that I might not find a new job quickly.  I will.  I have  to.  I cant go through another massive bump in the road in my life right now.
4.  What are you afraid of most in life?
Right now, its that this very charming, very attractive fireman Jesse Sykes might just be the guy for me.  My dad was a cop, and I remember what that life was like.  I don't want to be tied to anyone who puts his life on the line like that.
5.  What is the most important thing to you?
Figuring out who I am now that most of the things that defined me are gone.  My grandmother, my job, my confidence.  Im a fish out of water here, and I need to get my act together again fast.
6.  Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?
I have a stack of home decorating books and magazines taller than I am!
7.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
That low buzz of dread that wont leave my stomach.  I used to be a confident gal, and suddenly Im a bundle of worries.  I need to get the old Charlotte back.
8.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?
My friend Melba just gave me the most lovable cat, Mo.  Hes been terrific company, even though I dont think Jesse likes him very much.
9. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?
Id go back to the Victorian era with all those gorgeous textiles and the elegant, glamorous table settings.  Who could resist?
