Falling For Water Book Promo and Interview

Today I introduce Arlene Webb's new book Falling For Water. 
With an interesting Interview to learn more about her.

Interview Questions: 
Where did the idea come from for the book, Falling for Water?
A submission call from Decadent Publishing for romance geared toward preppers, or people who focus on preparedness.
What genre does your book fall under?  Contemporary M/F romance.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Will Smith is always a legend (snicker) who plays a good survivalist. But really, I hope the reader could put any faces on my hero and heroine.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Obsessive compulsive Cassi falls for the easy-going Ray, a cop who’s driven to keep her alive so she can show the world she isn’t a terrorist, and prove to him he can love again.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Here’s the buy link at Decadent Publishing: 
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
A month or so, then two more to polish. I write painstakingly slow, and then rewrite a few zillion times.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Finding Mercy, by DL Jackson 
The Princess and the Prepper by Barbara Elsborg 
Who or What inspired you to write this book
Heather Bennett, the awesome co-owner, author, editor, reader at Decadent Publishing.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Falling for Water is a fun, sexy read with flawed characters that find happiness. Please comment and leave an email address. I’ll pick someone at random to win a free e-copy with hopes they’ll enjoy the read and tell me what made them fall for Cassi and Ray.
Thank you so much for having me on your lovely blog, Lynelle.
Sincerely, Arlene

He stared at her, his expression wary. “And I’m thrilled you’re so into evolution, variation, and moving toward different things. I…er…just wondered, do you have a problem with saliva?”
“Saliva? What the hell are you talking about?”
He smiled. Not slow and lazy, not sweet and gentle, but the wolf smile she’d seen at the bar. “You admitted a thing with water right away. So what I’m hearing is no, I love saliva. Go ahead and slap me, and…maybe I’ll stop.” He grabbed her, yanked her up, and took her lips with his.
Ray tried for gentle and slow, but the moment his lips locked onto hers it felt like he had to make this the kiss of a lifetime or she’d slip through his fingers and disappear. She’d either run screaming from yet another bully who took advantage of a vulnerable state, or she’d fall through the cracks of the justice system and out of his reach.
From his mouth to hers, he yearned to dive in fast and hard, plundering with his tongue until she opened more than her heart to him by confiding an intense trauma. He wanted the supple and beautiful body rolled over him as well.
He deepened the kiss, and his heartbeat pounded faster and faster as the tension left her shoulders. She melted into him, soft and sweetly yielding to his aggressive hardness, and she began kissing him back.
His careful exploration, the tip of tongue easing along the seams of her mouth, forced his lust into an easy, steady climb as lips meshed, escalating on the roller coaster scale to maybe a five, a first-time kiss like when a boy walks a girl to her door.
Forget that. It was no-hold-back time. He was too into the taste and feel of this woman to strive for less, and he had to bring her over the edge with him. Plunge down and down into the world-is-about-to-end type kiss. A kiss that’d stay with her, marking her as his own.


What Cassi thought was a simple obsession with clean water has taken over her life. When she orders a distiller online to replace the one smashed by her abusive boyfriend, she gets more than she bargained for.
Enter a man with a badge, hunting a terrorist, and Cassi is his number one suspect. Not only is she struggling with her fixation on pure H2O, she has to prove she’s not the one he’s looking for—only she kind of wishes she was. Before she knows it, Cassi is in over her head.


Ray had everything, until a random crime ends badly and he’s left to hold to his grief or make changes in his life. Charming his way into people’s personal business—slapping on the cuffs as needed—gives him reason to get up in the morning. When he falls headfirst into another chance at love, he must take the plunge without hesitation or risk losing more than his heart.

As the pair join hands, sparks fly as well as bullets, leaving Cassi and Ray to wonder if the universe could right itself. Will the past reach out and drown their chance for happiness?
