I welcome romance writer Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku to Author Wednesday today.Flirty & Feisty Romance Banner for Forbidden Dance.jpeg

When were you first able to call yourself a “writer” or “author?”

My writing took an active turn in 2010 when I first published Flirty & Feisty Romance first novel titled; Loitering Shadows. I love to write and romance is my No. 1 passion. At the start of 2010, I ditched full time work for more than a year. In between undertaking school runs and enchanting my husband, I had free time to pursue my interest. So I wrote a personal story embellished with frills of fiction. At least half of the story was true. The reader must try to sort out the truth from fiction. Loitering Shadows was my first attempt at self-publishing and the book cover spots my husband and me. My upcoming title, Forbidden Dance is Flirty & Feisty Romance ninth novel.

What’s the best thing said about one of your books by a reviewer?

A reviewer left this remark about Kiss My Lips (Holiday Series #2) “Uhm…Stella got me sighing each time Lorna and Logan made love. Each experience is new and intense. I love Logan for proving his love in so many ways. An example is convincing Mr. Marie to give her away at the altar. That is priceless. I look forward to a possible romance between Rochelle and Dominic. She is so determined to get a good man. I love Aunt Nneka even more. She is a rare gem. Logan shines through in Kiss My Lips proving his love over and over. I might as well confess I am in love with him. Lol. And a baby to seal their love…awww”.

Tell me a little bit about your new release, Forbidden Dance. When will it be released and what’s the pitch for the book?

Forbidden Dance will be released on July 15. Here’s the pitch:  A married woman wants to embrace a new admirer in pursuit of a lifetime of happiness, but what will it cost her?

Sounds intriguing. What is the best thing someone could say about this book?

It would be sweet for a reader to say Forbidden Dance gave them hope to hold onto their marriage no matter how lonely or dark the road becomes.

How did you come up with the idea?

Forbidden Dance was borne out of my concern for the increasing number of marriages hitting the rocks. As an optimist and a die-hard romance lover, one beautiful spring morning, about six weeks ago, I sat staring out of my bedroom window, and Alero’s story drifted into my thoughts. Soon, her hopeless marriage filled my waking moments, and I wondered if there would be light at the end of the tunnel. The speed with which she drove out of her husband’s home, not on a whim, but after too many setbacks, left me open-mouthed. After that, the story took on a few twists.

Who is the antagonist in your book? Did you enjoy creating this character?

Zane Abdul, a tall, handsome car dealer of Moroccan descent, is a romantic, who is willing to protect his love. He resides in Casablanca, loves to wear his baseball hat facing backwards and enjoys sensual dance steps. Zane snaps up Alero (heroine) from the minute he sets his sexy eyes on her. There is one snag. Alero is married.

I enjoyed creating Zane because he gives Kyle (Alero’s husband – hero) a good run for his money. This is the first male antagonist I have fallen in love with.

Love to love a bad boy, right? That’s funny. If a movie was made about your success as a writer, who would play you?

Lovely question. There is a woman who comes readily to mind. Her name is Omotola Jolade-Ekeinde, a Nollywood actress. I think she would play me so well, domestically and professionally. Omotola is an epitome of a successful, hardworking African woman.

Just like you! Thank you so much for stopping by today, Stella. I wish you success with your new release.

My PhotoAbout Stella: Stella loves writing romance novels that are as intriguing and flirty as they are entertaining. Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels are a wide range of toe-curling, skin-tingling romance books with compelling characters who have heart and soul.

The stories are dotted with unexpected twists and turns and conflicts. The stories are set in fascinating Africa, enticing Europe and enchanting America. The witty dialogue between the characters keeps you thoroughly entertained.

If you want to cuddle up and relax, grab a copy, travel with the characters and sail away to Pleasure Island. The stories cure boredom and relieve stress.

In 2010, Stella created Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels. There are seven published contemporary and one historical romance title in the basket. In her leisure time, Stella goes swimming, reads romance novels, goes to the Cinema with her family, and watches TV.

  6. Stella, you have a romance novel with a character named Lorna? My name is Lorna! I have to read that book! Lorna is an unusual name… Great interview, you two! 🙂

    • Hello Lorna, yes, I have two books with Lorna as the heroine. I just know you will love her. The titles are; Stolen Valentine Kiss (Holiday Series #1) & Kiss My Lips (Holiday Series #2). They are interracial romance stories set in New Jersey. Indeed, Lorna is not a common name, but I loved the sound of it and it just took root in my heart.

      I’m so pleased to ‘meet’ you and to know you can’t wait to get to know Lorna. Just so you know, Lorna shared a bit about herself in an explicit character interview on my blog sometime ago.

      I hope you enjoy Lorna and Logan’s sweet and sensual tale in both titles.
      Thank you.
