After cheating on and losing the man he loved, Morgan Conway decided to get his life right. Now he owns a coffee shop and is engaged to Jase, an actor and rising star. All is perfect in his world until the man he thought was gone forever walks into his shop. His hidden feelings rush to the surface, unfortunately there for everyone to see, including his fiancé.
Shae Delamere was crushed when Morgan cheated on him five years ago. But he has a reason for seeking Morgan out. As Morgan and Shae get to know each other again, they discover the extent that friends meddled in their lives to keep them apart. Morgan cannot deny he is still in love with Shae, but he is engaged. With some hard decisions to make, Morgan struggles not to hurt the men he cares about—again. Shae has secrets he came to share with Morgan, but revealing them now could keep them apart for good.

Firstly the cover. It’s gorgeous! Can you share a little about the process for selecting the perfect cover to capture the essence of your stories and characters?
Sue: Thank you for having me. Isn’t the Stolen Dreams cover just wonderful? Brooke Albrecht produced so many wonderful draft but the second I saw the cover I knew it was the one. Those eyes just draw you in.
I am not the best person to talk about covers. I don’t *see* my characters and I don’t generally use models as inspiration. I’m more interested in their head space. So when an artist can see my characters from the ramblings I give them I am very lucky.
Now to the story. Where did the inspiration for the story come from and was it difficult to write a romance with characters in such a complex situation, dealing with issues from the past and the presence of fiancé for one of the characters?
Sue: A lot of things to answer there. The inspiration came from someone in my fanfic days. I prefer writing about real life complex issues. I want my characters to have back life. I want to know where they’ve lived and loved, and like Morgan, screwed up. Our guys don’t live in a vacuum. They love people and sometimes relationships are messy. In answer to your question, it wasn’t difficult to write. I love writing stories like this.
Can you share any secrets about Shae and Morgan?
Sue: No way! I would never give away their secrets.
Who is your favourite character in the book and why?
Sue: Morgan – because he has to grow up a hell of a lot in this story. Emotionally he’s taken on a roller-coaster.
Can you share an interesting fact your readers may not know about you?
Sue: I’m the youngest of six (lost a sister recently). My oldest brother is twenty-four years older than me. When I was a kid my brothers were older than some of my friends’ parents.
Thanks for sharing, Sue and best of luck with the release.
