Greetings book-lovers! Today, I’m thrilled to have Hurri Cosmo here to tell us about her new release, A Place to Belong! Check out the interview below and the giveaway at the end of the post!
Logan Perry was offered a job caring for an elderly lady a thousand miles from his home in Iowa. Looking for a place to hide, it seems to be the perfect opportunity to escape. So Logan runs to Texas. All he wants is a roof over his head and food in his stomach. So moving into the amazing McFarren Manor he believes is all he needs.
Bradley McFarren is only looking for someone to care for his aging grandmother. Too busy with the family multi-billion dollar real estate firm, he just doesn’t have time. With no personal life to speak of, Bradley has kept his heart safe. As long as Gail, his beloved grandmother, is cared for, he thinks it’s all he needs.
But what both their hearts truly desire is a place to belong.
So begins the journey of a love that will not be denied; a love bigger than the state of Texas.

Interview with Hurri Cosmo
Tell us about your latest release.
This is a part of a Pax which is an Amber Allure anthology of five stories with a common theme. In this case, all the stories need to take place in Texas. I actually started writing a different story for this Pax titled “Riven Creek Ranch” but another criteria is that it can’t go over 39,999 words. Riven Creek far surpassed that at nearly 47,000 and still counting. So I needed to come up with another story quick. “A Place to Belong” was born. Even though I wrote this one rather fast, I think it turned out well.
What kind of research went into this book?
I have been to Texas but nowhere near enough times to know the topography very well or anything much about Houston, which is where my story is placed. So I had to do some surfing on the web. I really wanted to make things authentic since that was the condition of the Pax. Normally, I will make up street names or restaurants, even towns and cities but I couldn’t do that with this story.
What was your most favorite scene to write?
In any book, whether I am writing or reading, I LOVE the place where the MC’s finally come together. They have overcome all the odds or obstacles or whatever it was that was keeping them apart and they are professing their love to each other.
What’s your most favorite book you’ve written? Why?
I really do love this one, “A Place to Belong”. I like the slow burn of the MC’s relationship which is something I have never written before. I don’t like angsty stuff on a normal basis and this one doesn’t really have a ton of it but what I did put in here is also something I haven’t really tackled before. I did enjoy it. Having said that, I have to say, my absolute favorite book I have written is “Ice Dragon Tales” and on the heels of that, the “Until You” series. The plots are big and sweeping and there’s a ton of information and stuff going on and you just get buried in the story.
Are you writing anything now? Can you tell us about it?
I have a file in my computer where I put all my ideas for stories whether it is a single sentence or a full blown synopsis. I go to this file every time I start a new story. I start reading through them and pick whatever grabs me. However, I do have a few WIPs. One called “Ghost Wolf Chronicles” which will be my first shifter series. Another tentatively titled one called “The Boy Next Door” about a well-armed man (well-endowed, too) who has to come to the rescue in more ways than one of our MC. I need to finish “Riven Creek Ranch” which is about a very unlucky man who comes to Texas and his aunt’s horse ranch and thinks his luck has followed him. But the Ranch foreman just might be able to change that. Plus I am just finishing up on another Pax “The Neighbors, A Vampire Story”. Not sure when it will be out but soon.
Do you have any upcoming releases?
I do! It is my first FREE READ and it’s through Goodreads called “Hyden’s Law” coming out September 28. Unfortunately it will not be “published” but just posted in the BDSM group on Goodreads. If you want to read it you would have to join the group. But I am going to see if I can self-publish it as well in a month or so that way everyone will be able to read it.
Hurri Cosmo lives in Minnesota where she holds tight to the idea that there, where it’s cold a good part of the year, she won’t age as fast. Yep, she avoids the truth as much as she avoids mirrors. But one of the reasons she loves writing is reality doesn’t always offer up a “happily ever after” and being able to take control of that is a powerful lure. Being a happy ending junkie, writing just makes them easier to find. Oh, she doesn’t mind “real life” and she does try to at least keep it in mind when she writes her stories, but she truly loves creating a wonderful couple, knowing they will fall in love and have their HEA. Every – single – time. And, of course, that is exactly the reason she loves reading this genre, too. Give her a glass of red wine, some dark chocolate, and her computer, whether she is reading or writing, and she will entertain herself for hours. The fact she actually gets paid to do it is Snickers bars on the frosting on the cake.
