Today is a special day! Just two days ago the final installment of the Crescent Creek series by Viviana MacKade was released, and, boy, is it good. As a treat, I have with me Summer Williams as well as Viviana. But first, let's take a look at the absolutely gorgeous cover:
Here is the blurb for His Midnight Sun by Viviana MacKade:
Tormented, fierce, and broken, sculptor Aidan Murphy has judged himself guilty. He yearns for love but pushes everyone away. He longs for acceptance but has lost the key to open his heart.
Until he meets Summer Williams. Beautiful and smart, Dr. Williams promises haven for for a man who believes he deserves none. All he has to do is let her in and risk his heart and soul.
Summer's managed to keep her inner light alive, even through tragedy. She's created a new life for herself and her daughter in Crescent Creek with loving, caring, and fun friends -- well, except brooding, breathtaking Aidan. She's used to keeping away from his type, though. All she has to do is ignore the pull of a man who's turning up to be more than snarls and storms. Will her compassion and medical instincts let her?
Love can heal a broken soul and shake up a timid heart. Or it can unleash devastation and revenge.
Will Aidan and Summer survive the hurricane?

Before we get to the interview, let me tell you a little about the author:
Beach bum and country music addicted, Viviana lives in a small Floridian town with her husband and her son, her die-hard fans and personal cheer squad. She spends her days between typing on her beloved keyboard, playing in the pool with her boy, and eating whatever her husband puts on her plate (the guy is that good, and she really loves eating). Besides beaching, she enjoys long walks, horse-riding, hiking, and pretty much whatever she can do outside with her family.
And now...the interview!
Sage: (looking to Summer) First of all, I have to say how incredibly brave it was of you to go out in the hurricane to get oxygen to that woman!
Viviana: Thank you for having us here, Sage. Before I give the mic to Summer, I just want to say that writing Summer and Aidan's story was a pleasure for me. They taught me so much! Now i'll let Summer take the stage.
Summer: Thank you for the compliment; is so sweet! I have to admit, though, there wasn't much of a choice. Miss Smith wouldn't have lasted the night without a new oxygen tank, and she lives in the house next to mine.
Sage: Wow, what was going through your mind? And what was going through Aidan's mind when he saw you out in the hurricane?
Summer: Honestly, I was terrified of leaving Chloe alone even if she was safe, and it was going to be a quick trip. Of course, by the time I was coming back from the clinic with the new tank to her place, I realized I should have been a tad more worried about the hurricane. And no, Aidan was not pleased. Probably he thought I was an idiot. Hold on. I think he said that. Yeah, I'm pretty sure he did.
Sage: (chuckling) Yes, that sounds like him. Now on to less hair-raising topics. What are some of your favorite childhood memories?
Summer: Camping with my family. We had a tent each, our parents, me, Rob, and John. We would roast marshmallows and make s'mores. We'd fish, look for animal tracks...it was awesome. I think that memory is why my brother Rob became a Park Ranger. I miss the mountains now that I live in Florida, but I needed a radical change. Too many ghosts and happy memories. They were driving me insane.
Sage: (smiling sympathetically) Of course. That's very understandable. (pausing for a moment) What is on your typical grocery list?
Summer: Lots of fruits and vegetables for Chloe. A lot of milk. I had to add Irish Black Tea for Aidan -- he's very into it, and don't try to tell him it's like regular tea. He won't have it. We try to eat healthy -- except when Aidan is in one of his artistic storms. Then Chloe and i keep eating healthily, he...survives, somehow, eating whatever is handy.
Sage: (nodding with a knowing look) What is your idea of a perfect day?
Summer: A boat picnic. It's the first thing we were going to do together, but that first time we were sidetracked. You know, the little detail of the bomb? Yeah. But we love doing it now, and we go out as much as we can.
Sage: Yeah, that was awful! Thank goodness that's all behind you. how do you like to celebrate your birthday?
Summer: Cake! And decorations. I love them. I always go overboard, and the house ends up looking like if a rainbow on steroids exploded in the house -- Aidan's words, not mine.
Sage: (laughing) Yeah, I can picture that. One last question. What are some of your lifetime achievement goals?
Summer: Being a good mom, or doing the best for being one. I don't know if it can be counted as an achievement, it's very much a work in progress, but Chloe is a happy girl. I guess we're doing a good job.
Sage: That's all you can do -- do the best you can. Thank you both for stopping by. It was great meeting you, Summer. And it's always a pleasure to see you, Vivi. Take care!
