Darren has never met anyone quite like Eboni. He’ll do whatever it takes to win her heart…if she’ll let him.

Check out Wayne’s Quick Six answers below and answer his question for a chance to win a digital copy of his new book. Thank you Wayne, for hanging out with us!
Historical or Contemporary?
While I enjoy contemporary romance, Historical romance wins hands down. I have a preference for Western Historical romances. Sweet or sexy. I particular enjoy the inspiration westerns. The Harlequin Love Inspired Historical line definitely feeds my appetite for these stories since they release two or three of the genre each month. Cheryl St. John, Cheryl Reavis, Lyn Cote, Linda Ford and Renee Ryan are among my favorites. Of course, my all time favorites are THE RAINBOW PROMISE by Lisa Gregory, and MORNING GLORY and VOWS by LaVyrle Spencer. Despite my preference for westerns, I can’t forget Judith McNaught who has written some of the most incredible historical romance novels ever…ONCE AND AGAIN, KINGDOM OF DREAMS, SOMETHING WONDERFUL and WHITNEY, MY LOVE.
Romantic suspense or Romantic comedy?
Definitely Romantic Suspense. My favorite genre. I grew up reading The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew and the mystery series by British author Enid Blyton. Romantic suspense combines my love for the mystery/suspense elements and romance. I’m a fan of the Harlequin Intrigue and Romantic Suspense lines and love the work of Linda Castillo, Karen Rose, Tami Hoag and Lisa Gregory.
Print or eBook?
I’m almost totally eBook, especially when it comes to my personal/leisure reading. I have an iPad and use the Kindle and Bluefire apps for most of my reading. Of course, I was one of those individuals who felt that I would always want the feel of a ‘print’ book in my hands. Now, I don’t even think of that. It’s really cool to be able to keep all my books and magazines in one place.
Crossword or Word Search?
I enjoy crosswords. They are definitely more challenging and I love a challenge. Word Searches are really not too much fun.
Reading or Writing?
This is a hard one. I love both and while I love writing, I prefer to read more; however, because I’m always on a deadline, reading, unfortunately, has to take second place. What I do enjoy…is that both allow me to escape into wonderful make believe worlds tinged with a bit of reality.
Country or Rock N Roll?
Give me country music any day! Narrow it down to my favorites and I’ll listened to the music of Darius Rucker all day. The beginning of 2013 could not have been better since he recently released his album. One of the things I love about country music is the storytelling elements. Tell me a good love story in music and I’m hooked.
