Hidden Depths by Aubrianna Hunter
I am often asked; who is Aubrianna Hunter? And the truth is the answer isn't a simple one. Beyond being a dedicated wife and mother, I was raised by a Marine, and married into the Navy.
Needless to say I can go toe to toe with the most sarcastic people you have met, and can dish insults and curse with the best of them. I blurt wildly inappropriate things at precisely the moment when the room goes quiet, so much so that my co-author has nicknamed me Ted... Yes... After the bear in the movie.
Recently my husband has replaced calling me crazy with calling me "Creative", but the tone he uses to do it makes me question his sincerity. Though honestly, crazy is probably closer to reality. I like my hectic life, in fact I thrive in the chaos and would have it no other way.
She is pierced, dyed and tattooed born on the wrong side of the tracks. He is a traditional white knight born of the proverbial silver spoon. Their meeting was an accident, the fact that they became even the most tentative of friends, an anomaly. The only real thing they had in common... chemistry. Lots of chemistry. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough and Gia knew it. Now, if only she could convince her body...
Josh had always walked the line, lived the life he was expected to live. He had, by all accounts, the perfect life; a corporate lawyer, a beautiful home, a family empire to run, and the perfect fiancee. He was well on his way. The only question he had... was that really where he wanted to go? Plagued by dreams, Josh fought all his natural instincts, denying not only what he truly wanted but who he was deep down inside. Until one crazy night when he gave in to his desires...
Could these two polar opposites have more in common than even they realize?
Q) What inspired you to write this story?
Gia - I could totally picture this strong, stubborn, totally socially defiant woman and I just had to tell her story.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
A couple of months. Once I actually started writing anyway. I thought about it for a couple months before that.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
This is such a hard question! I've been asked this a lot, an it changes depending on the day and my mood honestly. Sometimes it's the ability to be a different person for a while. At least on paper. Sometimes it's the ability to share my stories. Sometimes it's simply having a place to dump all the chaos in my head.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Editing... isn't that every author's least favorite thing?? LOL
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Bette Midler... A chance to have her memories, to see from the inside what her life has been like. What an amazing life to have had. Plus, I absolutely cannot sing. I would spend the whole day singing, just because I could.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
Olives... pimento stuffed olives. Like a year or so old. I keep trying to throw them out but my husband swears they are still good.
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
A lot more smut! LOL... Apparently, the steamier the better, so I will let my inner slut come out to play more often.
