Make sure to leave your email!

Q. Alright, Alex, so where are we visiting this time for your story?
A. The entire story takes place on a five-day cruise sailing the Western Caribbean.

Q. Have you ever been on a cruise?
A. Only one, but my cruise was nothing like this cruise…unfortunately.

Q. So you’re telling me that you have never had a sexual experience in a steam room on a cruise ship before?
A. Yep…. unfortunately.

Q. Where did the idea of the story come from?
A. Well my good friend Gregory T. told me all about his antics on his many cruises and I thought, this would make a great story but with a few twists thrown in, of course.

Q. Twists? Can you tell us what you mean by twist?

A. Well, when you have sex with a stranger that turns out not to be a stranger at all. Now that is a twist.

Q. In your stories, you’ve been told you have colorful secondary characters. Does that hold true in Cruising with Destiny?
A. Absolutely, but the readers will ultimately be the judges, and I hope they will let me know if they approve by leaving me a message at my blog or Facebook page.

Here is the blurb for Cruising with Destiny:
While on the ship Destiny, Nate Montgomery finds himself cruising the steam room for sex with a stranger. What he finds instead is his high school obsession with his lips wrapped around his cock.
Recently divorced and out, Steve Wilkinson plans to live his life experiencing as many men as he can, making up for lost time. Or does destiny have another plan?
Sailing the Western Caribbean, they find comfort and passion in each other's arms while reliving their youth and wondering about their future. As the tropical days turn into passionate nights, they realize they are falling in love. But when the ship returns to port, will they still feel the same way?
From Miami to Jamaica to Grand Cayman and back again, love can be found sailing the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, but it also can be lost.

 Q. What is next for you?
A. I have the third in the Heat Series scheduled for release in the beginning of July from SirenBookstrand. The characters from Heat 1 and 2 reunite on the family farm for a wedding that turns out to be more like a down home country brawl with a whole heck of a naughty going on, rather than a civilized wedding. But with these hunky heroes, what do you expect?

  1. Thank you Lea for interviewing this lovely gentleman and Thank You Alex for giving me a peek into these boys cabin! It sounds like a steamy story full of surprises. Looking forward to reading it.
    Congratulations on your release day and much success!!!

  2. This book sounds like one I would love to read!

    I have never been on a cruise but would love to go on one that gives passengers the chance to go out on Zodiacs to be close to whales. Of course I would be thrilled and all jazzed up and return to the ship ready to make wild, passionate love with someone. That goes without saying, right?


  3. Sounds like another winner, Alex!! :)

  4. I have to say I've never really liked water and boats so therefore never wanted to go on a cruise. Now that I read the excerpt from Alex's book I may change my mind. I never knew you could find so much fun and adventure on a cruise ship.

    I will definitely be adding Alex's books to my TBR list. Thanks.

  5. Thank you to all that entered! Sandra Rush is the winner of an ebook copy of Spanish Heat.

    Everyone have a wonderful Friday!
