The next Sullivan book will be out fall 2014! I LOVE HOW YOU LOVE ME will be about Dylan Sullivan from Seattle. I'm so excited about his love story. His brother Adam Sullivan will be next in 2015 and then I will introduce everyone to the Maine Sullivans!(less)

I'm so glad you've been enjoying my books so much! Honestly, I'm not sure where my stories come from. My imagination, mostly, as I've found I rarely spark off of something I've heard someone say or that I read in a magazine/newspaper. With each book, once I know who the hero and heroine are, I just really sink into their characters. Why do they love so easily...or why do they have such a hard time trusting in love? Are they super close to their family members like my Sullivans and Morrisons...or do they have a troubled relationship with their family. What makes them laugh and cry? What inspires them? All of those things end up being so crucial, because its my characters that create my plots, rather than fitting into a plot that I've come up with.

I don't usually know exactly how everything is going to turn out, but when I begin to write a book I'll know at least one or two important things. Most of all, I love to follow the "magic" when I'm writing. I always hope that if I'm laughing and crying and *feeling* that the people reading my books will too.

Thanks for the fabulous question!(less)

“I’ve always wondered why love has to be so full of conflict and strife. Why can’t love be simple? Why can’t it just be as pure as two people who realize that they can’t live as well, or as happily, apart as they can together?”

Angela A few weeks ago, I won I Only Have Eyes for You in a Goodreads contest. I'd bought the first book in the series last year when I'd heard so many good things about you, but had forgotten about it. So, I decided to read the first book in the series before the book I'd won. Well, that started a whole week of reading! I immediately downloaded ALL of the Sullivan books and devoured them back to back (in order). Now, I'm waiting for Ian's book. Sigh. Thank you for many hours of escape and fun reading. I love this series! You're now on my auto-buy list. Thank you and Merry Christmas!!

message 1: by Erin

Erin The Look of Love Review: As I read this book (in just a day), I found myself sucked in to the story of Chase and Chloe. Considering Bella Andre is one of my favorite romance authors ever, I had no doubt that this would be book I couldn't put down, BUT I didn't expect it to completely steal my undivided attention the way Game for Love did (my absolute favorite of her books). From the get go of The Look of Love I was entranced. I was constantly in fear of what Chloe's choice would be and I was taken away with Chases love and passion for her. Considering this story takes place in the Bay area of California, just a few hours away from my own home, it makes the story so real. Great job Bella Andre! You did it again! I look forward to more stories from this series! Thanks!
