Today, I’m interviewing fictional romance hero, Steven Mitchell from Law of Attraction, the latest novel by author Darlene Fredette.
Hi Steven, and welcome to my blog. Let’s start this interview off with something simple. Where were you born?
I was born and raised in Halifax, a big city on the East Coast.
We have a Halifax in North Carolina and one in southern Virginia too, but neither of those are big by any stretch of the imagination. Do you still live in Halifax? What do you do for a living?
Yes, I’m still in Halifax, working as a lawyer, but I’m building a house an hour outside of Ottawa. I’ll be closer to my family, and it’s a great place to start a family of my own.
Canadian, then. That’s cool. So, what’s going on in your life right now?
A divorce case was just assigned to me. Well, that’s not exactly the truth. I requested the case in order to reconnect with the opposing lawyer.
A-ha. Sounds like there’s a story in there somewhere. Is she that special someone in your life right now?
Yes. Her name is Christina Crawford, and I’m head over heels for her. She’s the love of my life
How did the two of you meet?
We met at a party five years ago. We dated until a misunderstanding tore us apart.
That sucks, but what’s keeping you two apart now?
My stupidity. I should have believed in us and our love, but jealousy blinded me. Christina doesn’t trust me…and she despises me.
Maybe not. But you can’t leave things the way they are. You need resolution. Or closure. Or something. Or, maybe that’s just my opinion. So, how would you like to see the situation resolved?
I have a plan, which is already in action. I’m hoping to regain Christina’s trust, and more importantly, her love.
How? And what obstacles are stand in your way?
A stubborn woman. Christina claims to despise me, but I know better. I see the truth in her beautiful brown eyes.
That’s a start. But is there a happily ever after in your future?
Damn right! I will win back the woman of my dreams, even if I have to play a little dirty.
As long as it’s not the kind of dirty that will piss her off, you just might stand a chance. Especially if you turn on the charm. So, any last comments before I turn this interview over to Darlene Fredette.
Wish me luck, because I’m going to need it.

Lawyer Christina Crawford has a successful career and stable financial future, but is it enough? Her world is disrupted when a routine divorce case means working with a man she never expected—or wanted—to see again. During their first meeting, she can’t deny a connection still exists. Her head warns her to run, but her heart yearns to stay.
Steven Mitchell is ruthless in the court room, but outside those doors, his easy charm, good looks and unlimited stream of female companions gives him an unscrupulous reputation. Six years ago Christina saw beyond his façade, but the emotions she evoked scared him and he pushed her away. Now he wants a second chance and he is determined to get her back…even if he has to play dirty.
Heart pounding in her chest, she closed the door behind him. Wearing her best business face, she returned to this disastrous meeting and sat. Christina drew in a deep breath, and a measure of control was restored. She picked up her pen and flipped open the case file. “So, according to these documents, your client is contesting the divorce?”
Steven reached across the table and snatched the pen from her hand. “What’s the rush, Christina? We haven’t seen each other in years. There’s a lot of catching up to do.”
She clenched her teeth together, barely parting her lips as she spoke. “We have nothing but this case to discuss.”
“Come on, don’t be like that.” He leaned back in his chair, frowning. “You’re not still holding a grudge, are you? What happened was so long ago. I hoped we could start fresh, as friends.”
“Are you freaking serious?” She glared an icy stare. Forget a slow death by high heel. She’d get more pleasure strangling him with her bare hands. “You accused me of misconduct, had me fired, and now you want to be friends?” Her heart thumped a rapid beat in her ears. “You’re out of your mind.”
A heavy silence filled the room. Steven stared down at the table, flicking the tip of her pen with his thumb. “You look fantastic,” he finally whispered.
“Go to hell.” Christina couldn’t believe his nerve. Did he think she would fall for his act? Those dark captivating blue eyes wouldn’t sway her, not this time. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
