Ares' Temptation by Aubrie Dionne: Interview

Book Title: Ares’ Temptation
Author: Aubrie Dionne
Release Date: 3/24/15
Genre: Paranormal Romance

The God of War is about to discover love…
At the wedding of two Greek gods, Kaye Underhill is the only mortal in a sea of scantily clad nymphs and fickle satyrs. And worse — she’s dateless. The only bright side is the hot, muscled hunkiness of the God of War, who’s seated next to her. But there’s no way Kaye could ever grab a god’s attention… Is there?
Ares is in big trouble. A vengeful witch curses him, and the first person he touches will steal his strengths, while he receives their weaknesses. When Kaye trips, Ares catches her and poof! His powers disappear, and Kaye suddenly has the strength and coordination of a Greek god. To break the curse and regain his powers, Ares must get Kaye to fall in love with him.
But for the god who makes war, making love presents a whole new set of problems…

What is your favorite part of the story, Ares’ Temptation?

I love the part where Kaye is at home, about to watch Netflix. She usually chooses a romantic comedy, but since she unknowingly has Ares’ powers, she wants to watch a battle scene. 

I also love the part where Ares’ realizes he isn’t Mr. Suave anymore and steps on Kaye’s toe while dancing. It’s fun to see him fall off his high horse! 

How long did it take you to write Ares’ Temptation?

Three months. My first book took me two years to write, and since then I’ve gotten a little more efficient. Now I have an outline, and I have the romantic tropes picked out. I know where the characters need to go to grow, and I know how to take them there. The fun part is the journey! 

What's your favorite book-turned movie?

It’s a tie between Lord of the Rings and Jane Eyre. I’ve watched those Lord of the Rings movies so many times, I feel like Frodo with the ring! As for Jane Eyre, my favorite movie (since it’s been done several times) is the newest one with Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester. It’s so good, I could watch it every day. 

How do you overcome writer’s block?

Usually I take a walk or do the laundry. The motion frees up ideas. I’ve been told that sitting is the new worst thing you can do, so I try to move around every twenty minutes or so! Writing requires a lot of sitting! But thinking requires a lot of walking around!
