Colors of Us by Sandra Bunino


Sandra Bunino is a romance author of several novellas including The Satin Rose Experience series. Her first full-length novel, The Colors of Us from the McAvery’s series, released in August 2014. She makes her parents proud by putting her MBA degree to good use dreaming up heroes who resemble David Gandy whenever possible. When not staying up past her bedtime torturing her oh-so-sexy heroes, she can be found shopping for shoes or saving turtles.

As a social media junkie in need of a ten-step program, you can also follow her on Facebook, Twitter, and her new addiction, Pinterest. Sandra loves to read and chat with other readers, so she formed the Bunino’s Bookalicious Babes group on Facebook where they currently share their love of Jamie Fraser from Outlanders…and David Gandy, of course.

Everything she knew to be true fell apart. Then fell apart again…

Michelle Willis is running from her past. What better place to hide than in the anonymity of New York City. Finding refuge in a tiny SoHo art gallery, she rebuilds her life one painting at a time.

A wrong turn sends Hunter McAvery on a crash course with disaster. He fights his own demons by following his big brother’s lead - drinking and bed-hopping his way through Manhattan.

A glance at Michelle’s self-portrait triggers emotions Hunter can’t tamp down. Driven to meet the artist, he discovers a fiery chemistry as their lives collide. But when their past threatens to tear them apart, can their love survive?

Q) What inspired you to write this story? Colors of Us was originally inspired by a portrait created by reviewer and blogger Michelle Wilson. The contrast of the sadness in the woman’s eyes, mixed with the vivid splashes of color in her hair stuck with me so I wrote her story.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
It took me about one year to finish the story. However part of that time was spent outlining and planning the characters and story for the entire series. Books 2 and 3 won’t take as long. J

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
I love bringing characters and stories to life with words.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Interruptions! I’m not the type of writer who can turn it on and off. I need to get into a “zone” which may take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. One interruption can zap the creative juices.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Fine Art Photographer Peter Lik. He’s not a household name but I truly love his work. He gets to travel all over the world taking pictures and creating beautiful artwork. What a dream come true!

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
Sesame Honey Mustard Dip from a Harry & David’s basket we received last Christmas.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
More from the McAvery Brothers series! Books 2 and 3 are coming soon. I’m also planning a series novella.
