Samantha Young’s latest novel is a second-chance love story with a hot alpha male.
Who is your writing inspiration?
I am inspired by a number of amazing authors including Patrick Ness, Richelle Mead, Suzanne Collins, and Karen Marie Moning.
What are you most proud of in your career so far?
I have to say On Dublin Street. I didn’t expect it to have the impact it did. Yes, it’s bestseller status was phenomenal, but the emails and messages I received from readers who related to the issues in the book and were touched by it, humbled me.
Where do you hope to be as an author in 10 years’ time?
I hope that I’m still publishing romance books that readers can escape into but I also hope that my catalogue of work will include new genres.
When did you realise you wanted to be a writer?
I’ve always wanted to be a writer, ever since I was a kid. I didn’t, however, think it could be a reality until I was in my early twenties and decided it was time I try to achieve what I wanted out of my life.
Why should readers read Fall from India Place?
It’s a timeless second-chance love story with real characters that people can relate to and hopefully fall for. Hannah is the smart, funny best friend we all wish we had and Marco is a brooding American who is determined to make Hannah his again. If readers love a hot alpha in pursuit of his heroine then I’m sure they’ll want to pick up Fall From India Place.
When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved – and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving in to temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on. Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life – something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together. But just when Marco thinks they’re committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him-a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again . . .
