Jewels, deception and adventure…
Twenty-two year old Cammie Adams knows one thing for sure – life isn’t fair. She’s still an emotional wreck from the tragic loss of her parents seven years ago. Right after she gets her PI license she is not only robbed, but abducted, only to find her life was all a lie. When she finds her mother’s diary, she discovers she was only a pawn in her mother’s dangerous game. Now she must get back what is rightfully hers from the man that murdered her mother.
Hot and mysterious, Simon Fisher has really only loved one thing – jewels. This ex-jewel thief, now bodyguard, doesn’t even know what hits him when he rescues Cammie as a favor to her father. Simon must protect her, but soon finds out where there’s trouble, Cammie isn’t far behind. She will not only steal his prized jewel, but his heart.
Christy Newton’s debut novel Stolen Hearts released in June with Front Porch Romance. And wow, isn’t that a lovely cover.
Today, I’m going to begin by chatting with Christy’s characters. I have some questions just for them.
I’m sorry about the tragic loss of your parents, Cammie, but tell me, how did you manage to meet your writer so your story was told?
Cammie: I came to her while she was sleeping so strongly that I woke her up and made her start typing. I refused to be ignored and stayed with her until my story was told.
Ah, you have a strong personality. I love that in a heroine. So, this question’s for you, Simon. What was your favorite thing to do in your book?
Simon: *looks at Cammie as a sly smile crosses his lips* We better skip to the next question, Joanne.
Hey, no fair. You bodyguards can get quite tight-lipped when you want to. Oh well, here’s a question I want huge elaboration on. If you could rewrite any scene in your book, what would it be?
Simon: *Tilts his head in thought* I would have met Cammie sooner.
Okay, so you’re sticking to your guns. I’m heading back to Cammie. She certainly had a lot to lose if she didn’t get back what was rightfully hers. So, are you happy with how everything turned out, Cammie?
Cammie: *looks over at Simon and smiles* Yes, I am so happy. *Simon winks at Cammie* Things couldn’t be better.
Ahh, I have feeling there was a happy ever after to your story, and I’m sure there was ton of adventure along the way. Which leads me to the next question. Would either of you care for a sequel?
Simon: Yes, I’m ready for more adventure.
Cammie: *takes Simon’s hand and squeezes it* Of course! I feel like our love story is just beginning!
Hey, you two, now take it easy. Wait right there while I pull a chair up for your writer.
Welcome, Christy. As the writer, is there anything you’d like to say in response to your characters’ interview?
I want to thank Cammie and Simon for staying in my head until their story was told and shared with the world. Without my very first characters, I would have never been published and found what I was meant to do in life!
I’m so excited for you, and huge congratulations on your first book’s publication. Are you working on anything new at the moment? And if you are, when can we expect to see it?
Yes, I am working on the final book in the Simon & Cammie’s Series. Hopefully by the end of the year!
Here’s an excerpt:
Cammie wanted to cry. Why did she even come? Now they were both in danger. She pressed her lips together to hold in the emotion that threatened to escape.
Simon put his hands on her shoulders. “We’re going to find a way out, okay? I need you to trust me.”
She swallowed and nodded. Afraid for both their lives, she followed him, her feet growing heavy from the wet mud that clung to her boots and pants. The air was thick the further they went making it difficult to breathe.
“Look.” Simon pointed to a round opening in the ground to the right of them. It must have been ten feet wide and twenty feet deep. The bottom of the pit looked like gravel. He took out a small flashlight and shined it down into the hole. She looked down at what she had thought were only rocks but instead saw various shapes of dirty chunks of ice mixed in.
“Diamonds.” He shut off the flashlight and they continued through.
Cammie felt a crunch beneath her feet. She looked down and a scream slipped out. Simon put his hand over her mouth and looked down to see what caused her alarm.
“Is that human?” she asked looking down at half a rib cage.
Thanks so much for joining me. How can readers find you and your book?

Christy Newton is a hopeless romantic writer, inspired by art, love and hope. She was lucky to have the support of her family and friends in her journey to publication. She’s always been a creative person, but until she started writing, she had no idea what she wanted to do with her life. Once her first novel was complete, it felt natural to continue writing. Christy just might be the only writer out there that doesn’t drink caffeine. Dark chocolate and warm cookies are her weaknesses. She loves to read books that make her laugh out loud or make her want to live in the place they are set in.
