Sundae With Nuts - Sharon Struth

September 21, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Sharon Struth!

Sundae with the Nut Sharon Struth

1. What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
Like Jamie Lee Curtis, I might be a sucker for them all. Including brogues (Outlander is killing me!) My husband speaks German, enough to converse, and one day he said to me in his always gentle and sweet voice “Was machst du, meine Liebe?” (What are you doing, my dear?”).  I knew “Liebe” was a term of endearment so I DID NOT respond with “What does it look like I’m doing?” See, an accent goes a long way? Also, it’s sad to me that the German language is perceived as so harsh when it’s the person delivering the words that makes any language shine.

2. Do you believe in love at first sight?
At one point in my life, I’d have said no. And I’m not just saying this to score points with my husband, but the instant I saw him, I knew he was special and felt connected to him. After one date, I knew he was the guy for me.

3.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
This isn’t a “real” destination, but I find a snowy winter night with the fireplace lit, a great movie playing and my sweetie at my side pleases me on so many levels. I just realized that in Share the Moon, the book opens in the fall, but the love builds during some of the worst snow seen in Northwest New England in decades. It gives the characters a chance to keep each other warm, right?

And last but now least.

4.Favorite ice cream flavor.
Chocolate. When I was growing up and my family went out to get ice cream, my sister would pour over the flavors as if it were going to be the last time she’d ever get a cone. I’d read them all too…and every single time, order chocolate.

Ah, but your romantic destination is a real place, Miss Sharon! And yes, I would have totally agreed with you. There was nothing better when my husband and I started dating when we lived in Ireland than a bottle of red, turf burning in the fireplace, and cold lashing outside - sometimes snow, but rarely in Ireland. We used to cuddle on the couch all the time. Now with 2 young boys in a small house, we liken ourselves to crazy during the winter months. Honestly. So that's the last thing I would think of these days. LOL

The majority of my Nuts believe in love at first sight, just like you Miss Sharon. I'm a skeptic and a scientist by nature, so how did I end up writing romance? 

And yes, I'm half German, and the German language and people are beautiful. Especially Bavaria where I've spent a good deal of time!

Miss Sharon Struth has an heartfelt contemporary romance out at the moment, called Share the Moon. Not only an awesome title, but a great story. Iv'e read it and loved it!! Available in both print and digital.

    1. Thanks, Gemma. You know, I wasn't someone who believed in that kind of love until that night. A nice thing to be proven wrong on :-)

    2. So nice to be proven wrong! And believing it most likely makes it easier to write about in your own stories, I reckon.
