Guest Post ~~ K.A. Linde
Bryna feels his eyes on her.
Hot, seductive, enticing.
He’s at least ten years older than her seventeen years, and he knows exactly what he’s doing to her with that look.
Walking away would be the smart thing to do…
But she can’t. Not that first night when he takes her home and claims her body. Not when he shows up in her life again with expensive gifts to win her trust. Not even when she’s falling for him, and everything else is falling apart…
Find out how Bryna goes from golden girl to gold digger in this tantalizingly scandalous first book in the USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s All That Glitters series.

BBAUAN: You have such a diverse array of characters, how do you find each of them in you? Are there any similarities between you are your characters?
KA Linde: That’s a great question. Honestly, I don’t know! I just think that every character I write should be different. I don’t want to write the same story twice, and I want different people to be able to relate to who the person is. Everyone is different so all of my characters are too. Bryna was particularly difficult I’d say to get into her head, because I’m not some alpha, hard core, bitch who takes everything head on. I really have to dive in head first to try to be like her. Once I get about 20k words in, I can usually just be the character when I’m writing without thinking about it. They kind of shape themselves up to that point.
I’d definitely say there are similarities. All of my female leads are smart women who go to college and have definite plans. Bryna’s plan is a bit muddled at the moment, but she has drive and puts a lot of her life into cheer. Lexi looks similar to me. Liz has my straight forward work ethic. Aribel has my sarcastic sense of humor. Devon has all of my fears. Bryna has my inner voice.
In the end, I think that the characters create themselves from me and the things I experience as much as they are entirely fiction. Someone recently said to me that, “my mind mixes up all your life experiences and spits them out in books!” Totally true. <3

The prey becomes the predator.
Love. That cursed four-letter word no longer belongs in Bryna’s vocabulary. The only four-letter word she knows now is gold.
She’s well acquainted with that one. And that’s exactly what she plans to do. She’s no longer the golden girl, and when she meets a businessman who promises everything she could ever want from the arrangement, she intends to get her money’s worth.
