Lindsay Below and her character Amy Somers

Please welcome Amy Somers from the new release, Beauty in His Bed by L.K. Below. I had a couple questions for Amy, and she was kind enough to answer them.

1. Adele-phenomenal voice, beautiful woman with great hair, plus-size body. People make stupid comments about this: Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld comes to mind with his comment immediately after Adele snagged 6 Grammys. It went something along the lines of how her weight affected his view of her. Adele didn't seem to care (good for her!) Why do you think people care? Is this a perspective you've often encountered? Does it affect your view of yourself?

Amy Somers: I've met people who care. A lot. I try not to let it bother me, but it's hard sometimes. Especially when you start comparing yourself against some of your friends. My cousin Colleen is stick-thin and my best friend Hannah is petite but curvy. They never make me feel bad on purpose. Most of the time, I'm happy the way that I am, but sometimes I just can't help but compare, especially when I see some of the gorgeous guys Hannah brings home. I never really realized how much I think about my weight without meaning to until I met Seb. I blame the media, slimming down natural stars on magazine covers and making us think we're supposed to look like toothpicks. But Seb makes me feel like I belong on those covers just the way I am... and you know what? I agree with him.As for why people care, who knows? It's really none of their business.

2. Favorite thing to do? Least favorite?

Amy Somers: One of my passions is sewing. I love to make new creations and have been doing it since high school. In fact, I make all my own lingerie. When it comes to plus-sized lingerie, there just isn't a lot of selection. Browsing lingerie stores is one of my least favorite things to do because of that. I see so many gorgeous pieces, but none of them fit.

3. Name 3 things on your Bucket list.

Amy Somers: 1) Turn my lingerie making into a viable business. 2) Visit New Orleans during Mardi Gras 3) Get married in a huge cathedral wearing a princess-like dress.

4.Top romantic outing/destination

Amy Somers: I used to think that the most romantic thing was a candlelit dinner, wine, the works. But that was before I met Seb. He can turn my plain old living room into the most romantic place in the world just with a few candles and some strewn rose petals. Home really is where the heart is -- and spending time with the man I love is all that matters.Do you want to learn more about my romance with Seb? Visit

Upon finding a gorgeous woman in his bed, Seb wakes her with a wicked kiss…and it just might lead to forever.

Devastated by a breakup, plus-sized Amy Somers retreats to New Orleans to visit her longtime friend. But when her friend delivers the key to her apartment and sends Amy on ahead, she doesn’t realize that the apartment belongs to someone else.

Upon coming home to find Amy asleep on his bed, Sebastien Babineaux entertains lusty thoughts. Bent on seducing her, he never expects to lose his heart -- or to work so hard to keep Amy by his side.



Seb propped his shoulder against the door frame to keep from falling to his knees at the sight of the woman lying half-naked on his bed. Was he drooling? Faced with a sight as delectable as her, he didn’t know how his jaw wasn’t lying on the floor.

If only she’d been conscious.

His hands tingled with the urge to strip off the rest of her clothes. After the dry spell he’d been having, he would have considered himself delusional to be handed such a feast. That is, if Monique hadn’t warned him that she’d sent her friend over. Seb needed no help charming women, but with a beauty like the one sprawled out before him, how could he turn her away?

This woman--Amy, he’d been told was her name--had been crafted to fulfill his every fantasy. She lay oblivious to his presence. Her blue baby doll clung to her large breasts, revealing miles of unconquered terrain. Her auburn hair draped over her chin and part of her plump mouth. One hand was tucked beneath her cheek; the other rested between her lush bare thighs. With her legs curled, he couldn’t tell how tall she would be, but one thing he was certain: before him lay a woman who he wouldn’t have to worry about crushing with his six-foot-tall frame. And one he shortly hoped to know very well.

One question held him rooted in place while his hormones urged him to join her.

Why would a goddess like her be lying half-dressed on his bed?
