Gynger Fyer: The Romance Arsonist

Today, we've got The Romance Arsonist here on Authors to Watch. Please welcome Gynger Fyer!

Tricia: Tell us about yourself and why you decided to be a writer.

Gynger: I'm Gynger Fyer a.k.a The Romance Arsonist. Have been writing as a hobby for over twenty years but I have only been published since September 2012. I decided to be a writer because I needed a healthy outlet for my over active imagination. 

Tricia: How would you categorize your romantic writing? (sweet, sensual, steamy, erotic, etc.)

Gynger: I would say my stories are a mixture of all of those but primarily they are sweet and steamy.

Tricia: Tell us about your romantic writing (novels, short stories, anthologies).

Gynger: Right now I am focused more on short stories. Most of them are between 10K and 20K long. At this point I want to have enough stories out there to give a reader a good sample of my writing style and also challenge myself to write a complete story which is not formulaic, in the least amount of words.

Tricia: Who is your favorite romance writer? 

Gynger: Mary Balogh

Tricia: What are the qualities of a perfect romantic hero? 

Gynger: Confident, a bit rough around the edges, thoughtful, persistent and witty.

Tricia: What is your greatest challenge as a romance writer? 

Gynger: Balancing the love scenes. I always wonder if I am putting too much sex or not enough sex in my stories. I’ve read books where it’s just too much and I tend to skip over all of the excess sex so I try to let the story and the couple determine what is enough.

Let's have a look at Gynger's books...

Frosty Pleasures:

When Santa Claus meets an untimely demise, Viking King Alrekr Frost—who’s in charge of winter—is asked to help find the remaining Krengel heir to take his place. The only thing he didn’t bargain for was that heir being a woman! Not just any woman, but a beautiful woman with a frosty magic all her own.

Kristina Krengel just found out she’s the last heir to the Krengel kingdom. The Krengel clan is supposed to keep Christmas on time and in harmony with the natural order of holidays and seasons. Kristina has always hid her magic. Her sometimes uncontrollable magic has left her a near recluse; after all, not many women can freeze water with their bare hands. Her love life is frozen as well; what man can make love to a woman whose body temperature gets below freezing? Alrekr proves he’s more than up for that challenge. Take a walk on the immortal side as Kristina becomes Santa and falls in love in the process.

Raleigh “Leigh” McCall knows falling in love with Will Shannessey is a bad idea. Their families are like the Hatfields and McCoys of barbecue in Columbia, South Carolina. It’s not like they planned it; who plans to sleep with the enemy? But that’s just what happened one fall day at Clemson University after a barbecue cook-off.

Will knew he couldn’t just walk up to his dad, Big Billy Bob Shannessey, and tell him he was head over heels in love with the daughter of Riley McCall of Riley’s Rib and Chicken (aka “The Traitor”), and that he’d been dating her for over two years…not unless he had a death wish and wanted to be unemployed.

At the same time, Leigh is past ready to spill the beans to their parents.
After all, by her estimation it’s been exactly “two years, nine months and two days!” Will knows how much the holidays mean to Leigh, affectionately known as his “cocoa puff.”

What’s a man to do when he’s caught between the woman he loves and the father who holds his future in his hands?

Secrets abound in this hilarious Thanksgiving tale of love, life and barbecue! Pull up to the table and let me fix you a plate! This is going to be finger-licking good!
