Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred of her. Since his migration into the house next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn’t sure whether she wants to toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire,
everything either has ever known will be
shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.

Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?

Can you please tell the readers what Games of Fire is about?
Games of Fire is about seventeen year old Sophia Valdez and how she went from being the girl next door to being chased by an evil adamant to toy with her sanity. Spencer wants to get away from the complications of his life, wants to start over and the last thing he wants or needs is to fall in love. In fact, he’s sworn off girls entirely and then he meets Sophie and everything changes for both of them. The evil wants them both, but why? 

Who was your favorite character to write in Games of Fire?
I can never pick a favorite character. It’s like asking which of my children I love most. They all have a special place inside me and I could never pick between them.

How did you come up with the name of your book?
I picked the name because fire has a large part in the story, not physically, but the passion between Sophie and Spencer are downright combustive and the evil at their heels, his motives are violent and dangerous, like fire. It’s a game of cat and mouse.

Was there any music you listen too while writing and if so can you tell us some of your choices?
I listened to a lot of:
Your Love Is A Lie - Simple Plan
Trouble - Taylor Swift
I Could Fall In Love - Selena

How much Chocolate did you eat while writing?
At least one cup of hot chocolate. That’s not including any bars, cakes or cookies I may or may not have indulged in. lol.

By any chance can we get a little teaser?
Oh absolutely!! I’m a fan of teasers ;)

Tentatively, she peered up at him through her lashes, carefully assessing his reaction. It was impossible to tell with the shadows falling in strips across his face, but his slow, shallow breaths, the slight tremor in his muscles and the sharp glint in his eyes spoke volumes. He knew.
“You should go back to bed.” His voice was even, viciously controlled.
Sophie dampened her lips. “My bed?” It was undetermined what possessed her to voice the question out loud, but once it was out, no amount of wishing could take it back.
His breath drew in sharply. The precisely carved patchwork etched into the muscles of his abdomen flexed beneath her fingertips. His fingers curled into the flimsy material of her oversized t-shirt. 
“Or mine.” His teeth flashed in a half smirk, half snarl. “But I promise you won’t get much sleep there.”
She would have happily melted into a thick puddle of delicious nothingness, but he was waiting… no, daring her to answer. “I didn’t plan on sleeping anyway.”

Is there anything else you would like to tell your fans?
You guys make every moment possible. I thank my lucky stars every day for having such amazing people behind me, supporting me and my work. It’s truly a blessing and an honor. Thank you. <3

She also likes to travel and take pictures of everything she comes across. When asked, Airicka describes herself as a sarcastic basket case that has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate, old movies and really bad jokes. She loves to laugh, make friends and write. If she could have one wish granted, it would be to spend one day as a fly-on-the-wall inside Stephen King's mind. If she could have two wishes granted, she would ask for a castle dedicated entirely to her overwhelming collection of books.
