EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER THREE OF "A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE"
"EMOTIONS EXPLODE"
His touch seemed charged with electricity and Nicole felt warm excitement course through her veins. Yet her control was now gone and her hand reached up to slap him. Travis caught her tiny wrist in his large sculpted hand, just before it reached his cheek. Never had he felt himself so out of control with his emotions. Deep desire over took his logical thinking. He groaned as he cupped Nicole's high set cheekbones between his hands and possessively covered her soft yielding lips with his.
Nicole, taken by surprise, was unable to escape his assault upon her senses. His mouth smothered her lips, and a strange light-headedness possessed her body as waves of explicit pleasure rocked over her. His kiss was unnerving her, weakening her while uncovering a sweet longing she had denied even to her self. Her body began to tremble as her lips hungrily responded to his. Nicole's slender arms reached up and encircled Travis's neck, as if they had a will of their own. Her body moved closer to Travis, her soft curves melting into his strong solid muscles.

TANTALIZING EXCERPTS FROM, "A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE"


TANTALIZING EXCERPTS FROM, “A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”
Nicole was apprehensive, sensing that his presence was near. Her anxiety

heightened as she turned from the ship’s railing and saw a tall figure coming towards her
through the fog. She recognized his confident stride and powerful well-muscled body. As he approached, panic rose in Nicole, causing her knees to almost buckle beneath her. Travis’s strong grasp clasped her bare shoulders forcefully, pulling her close to him. Nicole struggled against him, trying to push away her desire to melt into his arms and give way to the rising passion she felt whenever he was near.
Nicole looked into Travis’s piercing blue eyes and gasped upon seeing the flames of passion and desire reflected in them. With a moan, Travis’s mouth came down possessively upon her soft yielding lips. Nicole felt her defensive walls crumble as pulsating sensations whirled in her body, igniting an all consuming desire that only he could satiate. She sighed and molded her body into his, letting go of her self control.
Travis caught her to him, holding her against his virile body and kissed her, plundering her lips until she had no will of her own. It was as if someone had lit a fire at every point they touched. Somehow her fingers were buried in his hair, feeling its crisp unruliness with the last of her reeling senses and somehow her full lips were opening under his. Her lips were smothered by his mouth and a strange lightheadedness possessed her body as waves of explicit pleasure rocked over her. The fever reached her mind and nothing mattered except her hunger for the man that held her in his arms. She became limp with desire reveling in this primitive fierceness.
Travis swiftly pulled Nicole up against his body, knowing what he desired right at that moment, unable to control the passionate side of the love he felt for her.
Her laughing ceased as she felt the muscular contours of his body interlock against the bare surfaces of her body. She gasped as she gazed into his expressive eyes
and encountered the deep passionate chemistry that flowed between them. Her arms possessed with a will of their own, slid up around his neck, enabling her to press her body even closer to his, delighting in the sensations the act was arousing within her.
With a groan, Travis brought his lips down upon her soft pink yielding mouth. An electrical charge surged through him, igniting his body to boundaries he had never approached before. His lips endlessly explored hers, tasting a sweetness, that he wanted to drown in forever.
Nicole pushed aside her fears, letting go of all her built up defenses, unable to deny that which her heart and body craved so deeply. Her head whirled as a warm tingling sensation spread to the most vulnerable areas of her body, urging her to melt her body into his, desiring to become as one with him.
His hand wandered to the bare satiny softness of her back, caressing ever so gently, causing shivers to travel up and down her spine. His kiss became more demanding, and hungry as he took in the response he body was giving him.
***This is just a sampling of what awaits you in this passion filled love story!

MY INTERVIEW FOR MY BOOK, "A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE" FROM ALL THESE BOOKS


[u][b]About Me[/b][/u]
BIOGRAPHY OF LEEANNE MARIE STEPHENSON
RN and Author of
“A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”

My introduction into the world of medical professionals started at the age of six. I was diagnosed with “brittle diabetes”, and spent the majority of my childhood in the hospital. Doctors, nurses, and nutritionists impressed me with their patience, sensitivity and positive can do attitudes. They taught me how to balance my food intake and insulin injections so I could lead a “somewhat” normal life. The professionalism these people displayed made me realize that I wanted to be part of this care giving community. Therefore, I became a Registered Nurse. After graduating with honors from Mercy Central School of Nursing, (Grand Rapids, MI), I secured a position as a Registered Nurse at Blodgett Hospital, (Grand Rapids, MI). Over the next ten years, I married my high school sweetheart and started a family. Periodically I changed jobs to meet the demands of parenthood and family life.
Then my life took a dramatic turn as I was diagnosed with kidney failure due to my diabetes. The prognosis was less than promising. As my physical condition deteriorated, I was forced to give up my career as a nurse. Fatigue and weakness encompassed my entire world as I underwent dialysis treatments. Once again, I was on the receiving end of medical care. Desperate and determined to still be part of this wonderful profession, I started writing a romance novel based on the experiences I had encountered as a nurse. When the days that lie ahead of me seemed impossible to face, I did not allow my tears to compromise my strength. Instead of giving up, during the darkest time in my life, I drew on the love that surrounded me from my wonderful husband and family to write this loving story. When I wrote, I was released from my physical problems and taken back into the world of nursing, which I loved so much. Romantic stories can always release us from the problems of real life. They send us into a fantasy world where our imaginations can soar. I strove to take my readers and myself into that world. Thus was born my book, “A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”.
This book is so very special because it represents the strong love I had surrounding me, and what I could accomplish because of it, during the lowest point in my life.
The one driving force in my life was to be there for my family, especially my precious children. I had to continue and be a strong role model for them. I demonstrated to them that when adversity is overwhelming, you still have to endure. Getting ahead in a difficult situation requires an avid faith in oneself. I did just that by reaching deep inside myself and drawing on my core values of perseverance and unfaltering resolve to overcome the obstacles in my life and achieve one of my dreams!
After a year on dialysis, I was told I could have a kidney transplant. My wonderful brother stepped forward and gave me the gift of life. From that moment on, my whole world changed for the better and I eagerly embraced this second chance at life. When I felt well enough, I set about getting my romance story published, so I could be an inspirational example of what can be accomplished when life seems overwhelmingly hopeless! Unfortunately, I recently learned that my transplanted kidney is deteriorating. I hope and pray that I am able to showcase my story to others before my health gets too bad.

"Nicole looked into Travis's piercing blue eyes and gasped upon seeing the depth of passion and desire reflected in them. With a moan, Travis's mouth came down possessively upon her soft yielding lips. She sighed and molded her body into his, letting go of her self control." This is just an example of the passion that exists between the two characters! Serious hospital scenarios, a world of wealth and prestige, and current relationships, shed doubts and uncertainties that send this gripping tale of romance into many intriguing twists and turns!!! I highly recommend reading this book. It is a compelling spell binding tale of romance!

ALL ABOUT THE HUNKY HERO IN MY BOOK, "A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE"

Okay -- its time to tell us about that hunky hero in your book.What's his name?
Dr. Travis AndersonWhy did you pick that name?
Travis seemed to be a virile sexy name for a man. I chose Anderson because it has a Swedish origin, which emulates his looks.Give us a brief description of how he looks.
Powerful, well muscled, handsome athletic build. Intriguing rugged face, presenting with deep set, piercing blue eyes, a fine straight nose, and a wickedly charming smile. He has a tall, confident stride. His manner is always self assured and confident. He exudes a virile appeal!! Whew!! Is there anything unusual about his appearance?
His unruly sandy colored hair!
Who does he love? Why?
He loves Head Nurse, Nicole Danley. They start out with a special camaraderie, working side by side in life and death hospital scenarios. This turns into a deep all consuming love. Her deep concern and compassion for her patients emulates his feelings. Then there is the electric sparks and chemistry flying between them with any sort of intimate contact!!
Does this person love him?
Nicole tries hard to fight back her desires for Travis, but he overrides this as he becomes the hero many times over in different scenarios. She loves his sincerity and compassion for his patients and knows deep down that everything will be okay whenever he is around.Tell us about his family. Are they important to him?
His father had been a famous orthopedic surgeon. He had invested wisely making the scope of his wealth grow. Then tragedy struck when his parents died in a plane crash returning from a medical conference in Paris. Travis's older sister, Liz, took over and raised him. She married Wade, a lawyer with political ambitions which turns into underhanded schemes and plots to transport him to the Presidency. This situation among others lends the many twists and turns to this pulse quickening love story.Where is he from?
He is from Ada, Michigan. It is a wealthy community. He resides in a magnificent mansion overlooking the rippling Thornapple River.Does his hometown affect his behavior, thoughts and attitude?
Although he was born and raised in a world of wealth and prestige, he also was taught to care for others. Being around his father who was a doctor, embedded this caring attitude into his very soul, thus making him want to become a doctor also.What does he want out of life?
He wants to make his father proud by being the best doctor. He tuly desires a family of his own, since his family life was so wonderful when his parents were alive. He desires a wife that he can love and share his life with, as his mother and father did. They were excellent role models for him!What's his biggest secret? (Only share if it isn't a spoiler in the story.)
Sorry, it would be a spoiler!Did you write more than one story about him?
I am currently working on a sequel to ,"A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE", In which Travis will……………..How would he describe you?
He would describe me to be a lot like the heroine in my book, Nicole. OF course I patterned a lot of her personality and actions after my own as I worked as an RN in the hospital. You could say that a lot of scenarios and people in the book came from the real life experiences I had!!Is there anything else about your hero that we need to know? Feel free to share.
"His emotions become centered around his love for Nicole, but being a realist, he knows that hope and love have a dangerous tendency to surge out of control, sweeping away the best built defenses and opening the way to risks of unbearable disappointment." This is just a glimpse into Travis's thought process!Please provide your website link.

EXCERPT: EMOTIONS EXPLODE - THIRD CHAPTER








A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE
By
Leeanne Marie Stephenson
CHAPTER THREE- "EMOTIONS EXPLODE"
Ron’s gaze swept over Nicole with a hunger, as if he were a cat and she was the mouse he was about to devour. Her long chestnut brown tresses hung in ringlets that cascaded down her back to her waistline. Her shoulders were bare with only a gold chain covering her neck. Ron’s eye trailed down below the neckline where her satin slate grey dress began clinging to her rounded breasts, her slender waist and hips, and then flowed down to the floor.
Ron swallowed hard. "You are breathtakingly beautiful Nicole! Simply exquisite!" He appeared to be in a trance like state as he stared at Nicole.
Nicole felt truly beautiful. Ron’s comments caused her high cheek bones to flush with color and set highlights dancing in her large violet eyes.

IT'S ALL IN THE SETTING IN MY BOOK!!



IT’S ALL IN THE SETTING OF THE BOOK!!
A Prescription for Love - Leeanne Marie Stephenson
Why did you pick the setting you used in your story? I'm not looking for -- "because I live there". I want you to dig deep and tell usWhy you chose that particular setting?

I chose Michigan and the community I worked in as a Registered Nurse. I take the reader on a journey back into the 1970's at Blodgett Hospital where I began my own career as a nurse. All the places in Michigan that I write about, I have visited, so I have a first hand knowledge of their beauty and significance!

What does the setting add to the story?

Since my story is a medical romance, it depicts the heart of the medical community in Michigan. it also takes the reader into a world of wealth and prestige in the varios wealthy areas of Michigan.

Could you write the same story in a different setting?

I could write the story in another hospital setting.Why or why couldn't you use a different setting?A different setting would be difficult, because the personlity of the setting wouldn't come through since I never experienced the setting myself. In particular, Michigan's Mackinac Island is such a glamorous romantic setting, it couldn't possibly be repaced in my story!

Did you use a real place as a basis for your setting?

Every place I wrote about existed back in the 1970's, and I have been to all these places.

Is there anything else about your setting that we need to know? Feel free to share.

This romantic journey highlights Grand Rapids, East Grand Rapids and the beautiful historical Mackinac Island of Michigan. The details of the setting make you feel as though you are right there with the characters. You willparticularly fall in love with the romantic Mackinac Isalnd! It's a love story in a setting you don't want to miss!

Please provide your website link.

MY ROMANTIC VALENTINE GIFT FROM MY WONDERFUL HUSBAND!!



MY ROMANTIC VALENTINE GIFT FROM MY WONDERFUL HUSBAND!!
I wanted to tell you all about what a romantic wonderful man my husband is. Remember that he is the one who inspired me to write my passionate, sensual romance novel. It started with me reminiscing about my childhood, when I came down with diabetes. Back then, they didn't have diet pop, so I was left to drink only water. Then they came out with fizzies! They are flavored tablets that you plop into a glass of water. They fizz up and turn the water into a delicious drink! I loved these as a child, but they took them off the market because the artificial sweetener in them was causing cancer in rats. I really missed them. My wonderful husband listened to my story, and went about tracking the fizzies down. He presented tthem to me on Valentine's day. I can't tell you all how much this meant to me! It was so thought ful. He also gave me a very romantic card, that I would like to share with you. It states, "For my wife, my lover, my partner, I've come to cherish so many special things about you, Your smile, your reassuring touch, the way you understandme. And I want you to know especially today that I'll always be there for you, I'll always believe in us!" This comes from a marriage of 31 years. Can you see why he was my inspiration for Dr. Travis Anderson in my book!! I invite you to please visit my web site and learn more about Travis and my romance novel. Thank you, Leeanne.

What inspired the book? my life took a dramatic turn as I was diagnosed with kidney failuredue to my diabetes. The prognosis was less than promising. As myphysical condition deteriorated, I was forced to give up my career as anurse. Fatigue and weakness encompassed my entire world as I underwentdialysis treatments. Desperate and determined to still be part of thiswonderful profession, I started writing a romance novel based on theexperiences I had encountered as a nurse. When the days that lie aheadof me seemed impossible to face, I did not allow my tears to compromisemy strength. Instead of giving up, during the darkest time in my life,I drew on the love that surrounded me from my wonderful husband and family to write this loving story. When I wrote, I was released from my physical problems and taken back into the world of nursing, which I loved so much. Romantic stories can always release us from the problems of real life. They send us into a fantasy world where our imaginations can soar. I strove to take my readers and myself into that world. Thus was born my book, “A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”.
What makes this book special to you? This book is so very special because it represents the strong love Ihad surrounding me, and what I could accomplish because of it, duringthe lowest point in my life.
What makes this a book that other people MUST read and WHY?It is a truly wonderful romantic journey, where you will wish thatthe Hero was definitely the man in your life!

You will wish it would never end! It also is a book that demonstrates what can be achieved when life seems overwhelmingly hopeless.
What people NEED to read this book and WHY? Lovers of romance novels, people wanting to know what true love isand how it is demonstrated between 2 people. People facing thechallenges of great adversity in their lives will hopefully be inspired to readthis book, to see how I achieved my dream while living without any hopein my life.
What sparks your creativity?
Any tips to help others spark their owncreativity? My creativity for this book came from the great love affair I have with my husband. Also, I wanted to still of the medical world so I wrote about that. I think you can be very creative if you use a lot of your own personal experiences in your writing.
What has been the biggest stumbling block in your writing?
Can youshare some tips to help others get past similar problems?The hardest thing about writing when you are sick, is the fatigue and weakness that you experience. You just have to have an unfathomable resolve to forge ahead and accomplish what you set out to achieve!
What do you think motivates people to become authors?
What motivatedyou to get into this unusual industry? I became an author, because the writing allowed me to escape into my imagination and go to a place where the world was wonderful! It allowedme to escape the horrible world and circumstances I was in. I wroteabout a place in life that I loved which was being a Nurse.
Tell me about the most unusual things you have done to promote anybooks? I persistently sent many media packages and e-mails to a TV show until they relented and had me on their show.
FICTION - If there is a setting, tell us how you decided on thatsetting and what you did to create a complete and vivid setting for your readers? My setting is where I worked my own career as a nurse so it is very personal to me and easy to describe throughout the book.
FICTION - What inspires you about the hero or heroine in your book?What makes them memorable for the reader?
What motivates the hero and/orheroine? You can include information about both if you want. Well, the heroine is a Nurse as I was, so alot of her characteristics magnify my personality. The hero is every woman's dream, truly aloving caring man.
FICTION - Is there a villain or something that causes friction in your story? Tell us about what or who it is and how that contributes to thestory. Any details about conflict and friction is good information to know.There are several villains in the story, all with the same goal of keeping the hero and heroine apart! Each has their own selfish reasonsfor their phoniness and manipulations of the characters. It lends many twists and turns to the plot with their underhanded schemes!
If there's anything else you would like to share, this is the time and place. After a year on dialysis, I was told I could have a kidney transplant. My wonderful brother stepped forward and gave me the gift of life. From that moment on, my whole world changed for the better and I eagerly embraced this second chance at life. When I felt well enough,I set about getting my romance story published, so I could be an inspirational example of what can be accomplished when life seems overwhelmingly hopeless.

In conclusion:
21. Take as much space as necessary to speak to our readers—what would you like them to know about you and your writing?
My introduction into the world of medical professionals started at the age of six. I was diagnosed with “brittle diabetes”, and spent the majority of my childhood in the hospital. Doctors, nurses, and nutritionists impressed me with their patience, sensitivity and positive can do attitudes. They taught me how to balance my food intake and insulin injections so I could lead a “somewhat” normal life. The professionalism these people displayed made me realize that I wanted to be part of this care giving community. Therefore, I became a Registered Nurse. After graduating with honors from Mercy Central School of Nursing, (Grand Rapids, MI), I secured a position as a Registered Nurse at Blodgett Hospital, (Grand Rapids, MI). Over the next ten years, I married my high school sweetheart and started a family. Periodically I changed jobs to meet the demands of parenthood and family life.
Then my life took a dramatic turn as I was diagnosed with kidney failure due to my diabetes. The prognosis was less than promising. As my physical condition deteriorated, I was forced to give up my career as a nurse. Fatigue and weakness encompassed my entire world as I underwent dialysis treatments. Once again, I was on the receiving end of medical care. Desperate and determined to still be part of this wonderful profession, I started writing a romance novel based on the experiences I had encountered as a nurse. When the days that lie ahead of me seemed impossible to face, I did not allow my tears to compromise my strength. Instead of giving up, during the darkest time in my life, I drew on the love that surrounded me from my wonderful husband and family to write this loving story. When I wrote, I was released from my physical problems and taken back into the world of nursing, which I loved so much. Romantic stories can always release us from the problems of real life. They send us into a fantasy world where our imaginations can soar. I strove to take my readers and myself into that world. Thus was born my book, “A PRESCRIPTION FOR LOVE”.
This book is so very special because it represents the strong love I had surrounding me, and what I could accomplish because of it, during the lowest point in my life.
The one driving force in my life was to be there for my family, especially my precious children. I had to continue and be a strong role model for them. I demonstrated to them that when adversity is overwhelming, you still have to endure. Getting ahead in a difficult situation requires an avid faith in oneself. I did just that by reaching deep inside myself and drawing on my core values of perseverance and unfaltering resolve to overcome the obstacles in my life and achieve one of my dreams!
After a year on dialysis, I was told I could have a kidney transplant. My wonderful brother stepped forward and gave me the gift of life. From that moment on, my whole world changed for the better and I eagerly embraced this second chance at life. When I felt well enough, I set about getting my romance story published, so I could be an inspirational example of what can be accomplished when life seems overwhelmingly hopeless!
