Good morning Romance Readers,
This week, we caught up with author Lyndell Williams and asked her a few questions about her new release, Sweet Love, Bitter Fruit. Enjoy this short interview with the author.
Interview question #1: Describe what your hero and heroine would consider the perfect date night.
Marcus likes to make Toni happy. For him, the perfect date is doing anything she wants so when they get home, he gets what he wants. Toni spends her days helping people with their problems, so a perfect date for her is when she is the center of attention. It’s all about her. Then she can decompress, rejuvenate and open to her husband.
Interview question #2: What does your hero love about your heroine and what does your heroine love about your hero?
Toni was immediately drawn to Marcus’s confidence and ability to lead. He exuded self-assurance when he approached her the first time, making her want to give him the time of day—a smart choice. Marcus fell in love with Toni’s intuitive nature. He can be vulnerable to her in ways he can’t with the rest of the world.
Interview question #3: For your hero and heroine, was it love at first sight or lust at first sight?
Marcus and Toni didn’t lust or love after each other immediately. He saw her and was attracted to her. Toni sensed something special about Marcus and agreed to go out with him. From their first date, they had mutually-fulfilling conversations, engaging each others’ minds and connecting on a spiritual level. When they did have sex, it deepened their connection and brought their relationship to the next level.
Has everybody lost their damned minds?
Harlem lawyer Marcus Kent fights for justice while preserving a stable, passionate marriage with wife, Toni. Smart and confident, he has it all together—that is until his world turns upside down.
Not only is someone stalking his sister, but an intern at work is also getting too close for comfort.
On top of all of that, Toni’s renewed infertility obsession causes them to continually argue, adding more strain and cooling off their steamy union.
Struggling with insecurities and yearning to have a child, successful psychologist Toni Kent looks to her husband for support. Unfortunately, relentless distraction and stubbornness prevent Marcus from being there when she needs him the most and jeopardizes their happy home.
After multiple failed in vitro attempts, Toni is ready to try again, but Marcus is done. He doesn’t want another headache or more heartache.
Will a baby-making impasse tear this dream couple apart?
From the author of My Way to You, a new novel about keeping the flames of love and passion burning in a world determined to snuff them out.

“Toni.” Catching his breath, Marcus inhaled the delicious smells from the kitchen and started pulling off his hoodie. “Your man is home.” He scraped his wet sneakers on the entryway rug and scanned the apartment. The morning jog helped clear his head and renewed some of the confidence he was used to having in his chest.
Toni emerged from behind the refrigerator. “Hey, Babe. Hungry?” She held up a water bottle. “I rescheduled my morning appointments, so I don’t have to leave until later.”
He stood behind and pressed his body against hers, sliding his cold hands up and down her warm, soft arms.
She giggled and squirmed. “Stop, Marc. You’re freezing.”
“Warm me up?” he asked, kissing her neck.
“Yes, with a nice breakfast. Now, let me do this.”
He smiled as he watched the polka dots on the pajama pants covering her bottom jiggle toward the stove. Always a morning treat.
