Take Five and Meet Valerie Ullmer & Unwrapped (A Unexpected Novella)

Welcome to An Indie Adventure, Valerie.  Tell us, what inspired you to write your book Unwrapped (A Unexpected Novella)?

Thanks for having me on your blog, L.A.

I loved the idea of friends who knew the ins and outs of each-others lives and fell in love but still struggled with their identity and the relationship.  That is where Jack and Adam’s story came from

Have you been a lifelong reader of Romance?  What are some the first books you remember reading?

Yes.  I first started devouring Harlequin Romances.  Diana Palmer was and still is my favorite author.

What do you do to rev your creative juices?

I get excited by developing my ideas into books.  From taking a thought about a character and turning that character into a realistic, relatable person to myself and hopefully my readers.

To you what makes a great romance hero or heroine?

Strength of Character.  I don’t like weak characters for the sake of the story.  I love both heroes and heroines to be strong and their strength comes out in their actions throughout the story.

You’re having a dinner party.  What character from your novel do you hope doesn’t show up?     Why?

I can’t say that I would exclude any of them.  All of the secondary characters in my book are so different from one another that when they get together, it’s always fun.

Give us a brief summary of  Unwrapped (A Unexpected Novella)
Friends to lovers.

Jack had done what he’d always done to protect himself.  He allowed fear to take over and as a result, he pushed Adam away. When Adam finally left, Jack understood that if he loved Adam as much as he claimed, he needed to change before Adam could risk his heart again.

Lovers to forever.

Adam understood why Jack kept his feelings secret, but after being ignored one too many times, he left. But Jack won’t give up and when he proves to Adam how much he wants their relationship to work, can Adam risk his heart to the one man he’s loved all over again?

Will Jack and Adam find their happily-ever-after during the season of miracles?
