5 Facts About One Week in Your Arms. @pprestonauthor ~SecretBaby #Romance #Hawaii

Thanks for having me on your blog today! I decided to share five facts about

Five Facts about One Week in Your Arms, A Lafayette Falls Romance Prequel.

1. Kauai provides the setting for the middle of the book. Kauai is one of the Hawaiian islands known as the Garden Isle because of its lush foliage, flowers, and waterfalls. It has been featured in several movies, and the Jurassic Park waterfall is one of the tourist sites that Carson and Marla visited. It still retains its natural beauty and farming terrain. No high-rise buildings are allowed on the island.

2. The fictional town of Lafayette Falls is located south of Nashville, where the land has forested rolling hills, ridges, rocky creeks, and valleys. This area is geographically known as the Highland Rim, and the Natchez Trace travels through this area. While stopping at the Baker's Bluff overlook, I decided to set my books in this location because the scenery was so beautiful.

3. I have worked in the medical field for years, and so far, four of the books have heroines and heroes who are doctors, but the stories aren't medical romances. I also have characters with other professions, such as a professional dancer, librarian, rancher, firefighter, and racecar designer.

4. One Week in Your Arms was not a title I chose. The original version of the book was traditionally published, and the editor titled the book. I'm not fond of it, but I decided to keep it.

5. One Week in Your Arms doesn't have as much humor as some of my other books, but Marla and Carson have their lighthearted moments.


After a summer fling six years ago, Marla and Carson went their separate ways. Yet Carson

Blackwell still has feelings for Marla. Desperate to rid himself of his infatuation, he offers Marla a deal she can't refuse. In exchange for a week in Hawaii as his "pretend girlfriend," the billionaire promises a generous yearly donation to Marla's community clinic. Will he finally free himself of unrequited love? Dr. Marla Grant must navigate a high-stakes game of love and deception when she agrees to be Carson's fake girlfriend. As old passions resurface and the past returns to haunt her, she fears what will happen if Carson finds out he's the unsuspecting father of her little girl. Will she make it back home to Lafayette Falls unscathed? Or will one week in paradise destroy her regardless?
