Good morning diverse romance readers! This week, we caught up with author Alexandra Isobel to ask her a few questions about her latest novel, Weekend Warrior.
Enjoy this short interview.
Interview question #1: Describe what your hero and heroine would consider the perfect date night.
Thomas and Mary Jane would consider anytime together away from their five children absolute Heaven. They could be huddled together in their minivan and be perfectly happy.
Interview question #2: What does your hero love about your heroine and what does your heroine love about your hero?
Thomas loves Mary Jane’s strength and flexibility. She keeps their family together while he’s away. Mary Jane loves Thomas’ sexy loyalty, protectiveness and dedication to all of them.
Interview question #3: For your hero and heroine, was it love at first sight or lust at first sight?
They grew to love each other since early high school.
Senior Chief Thomas Perkins comes home from his latest mission, expecting to be hailed as his family’s weekend warrior.
Instead, his wife tosses him legal papers as she walks out the door.
She’s suing him for wrongful pregnancy and breach of contract? The last time they were together, he’d promised to pull out. Now she’s pregnant with their six child.
Mary Jane Perkins had been looking forward to entering the ‘me years’ chapter of her life now that all of her children were finally in school full time. The proverbial shop was supposed to be close, giving her time to pursue her own endeavors. Now it was all going down in a hail of renewed baby care.
Beleaguered, she goes home to Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard to lick her wounds, but immediately finds herself immersed in family history that steeps her true spirit and rejuvenates her soul. Just when she starts to rediscover herself in the one place where she is just Maisey, Thomas arrives begging her to come home.
Can Mary Jane go back to her chaotic family life and Boston elite responsibilities of being Mrs. Thomas Perkins III?
Pregnancy hormones have made things between her and Thomas hotter than ever, but her time away has renewed her perspective on what it means to be herself, and even though Martha’s Vineyard is the place where she and Thomas’s relationship began, does she want to return to the life they once had?

Marble Head, Boston. The Kitchen. “What? You’re suing me?” Senior Chief Thomas Perkins stared down at his wife Mary Jane, as the noise from their five-year-old twins, Malcolm and Jefferson, and Irish wolfhound, Finn, playing in the backyard, faded into the background of his awareness. “For wrongful pregnancy? Are you f*cking kidding me?” He’d only been home from his latest SEAL mission for five minutes. How did he end up this disillusioned so quickly, in his own kitchen, in the middle of this huge clusterfuck so fast? This had to be a world record. Mary Jane, his wife of ten plus years, gave him a withering stare. “Language, Thomas. Tommy, Fergus, and Maisey are right upstairs, and you know they hear everything. Can you keep your meltdown to a dull roar? “She pursed her lips and drummed her fingers on the granite middle console. Thomas opened his mouth then shut it, trying to mentally gather the pieces of his blown-up mind. His wife was pregnant again? And suing him for it? What the f*ck? He widened his stance and clasped his hands behind his back and rocked on his heels. “Wrongful pregnancy? Is that even a thing?” He sounded like a stupid idiot sputtering out the words as if somehow repeating them would bring comprehension. “And…you can’t sue me; I’m your husband.” He lamely pointed at himself. This had to be a joke. His mind stalled as he stared at his wife. She was as beautiful as ever. Her straight black hair was pulled off her face, highlighting her long lashes and a sprinkling of freckles over her nose, not to mention the flash in her light brown, cat-shaped eyes. She wore a simple, long-sleeved top, the round neckline showing off the high lift to her chin, the white color a contrast to her coffee with heavy cream-colored skin. She was a paradox personified. Slender but curvy. Reserved but fiery. A proper wife and mother of his children but a freak between the sheets. There was never a time he didn’t love her or lust after her, hence the five children and apparently still counting. He was already growing wildly hard with just the thought of her carrying another one of his babies.
