Q & A with author C.L. Donley


Happy Memorial Day!

This week, we caught up with author C.L. Donley to ask her a few questions about her latest novel Love on a Lark. Enjoy!


Interview question #1: Describe what your hero and heroine would consider the perfect date night.

A perfect date would involve an outdoor spread of wine and cheese and good food simply prepared, overlooking a vineyard in the Tuscan countryside at sunset. And maybe some friends. Family. Basically a dinner party. They’re not sticklers about alone time. They know how to slip away in a pinch 😉

Interview question #2: What does your hero love about your heroine and what does your heroine love about your hero?

Dario is a typical Italian male at heart, so he’s mostly taken by Lark’s beauty. And everything else is a bonus. But that’s different for Lark, who is brilliant and has spent her life trying to achieve enough to be loved and accepted. She treats love like a kind of currency she earns. And Dario is the kind of guy that falls in love and loves hard, and he just… likes the look of her. And for her, it’s refreshing, and what she needs.

Interview question #3: For your hero and heroine, was it love at first sight or lust at first sight?

Definitely lust!

“On a Lark”: Idiom, meaning to do something on a whim or just for fun.

African American savant Lark Chambers is young, beautiful and brilliant, an interpreter formerly trained by the United Nations. Fluent in seven languages, she’s at the top of her game at Linguistics, Interpreting, Sign and Translation (LIST), the company that assigns her to Dario DiRossi, a multi-billion dollar textile heir, and currently her devastatingly handsome boss. DiRossi is no threat to her self control, however.

As a product of the foster care system, Lark doesn’t know the first thing about getting close enough to a man to trust him with her heart. But when a handsome stranger christens her first night in her favorite city of Florence with lovemaking, Lark finds herself confronting the turmoil behind her put- together exterior. And her latest assignment just might put her over the edge.
