Meet the Author




Samantha has spent her entire life in the Finger Lakes region of central New York, where she lives with her husband, her yellow lab and her two cats (more pets are always an imminent possibility!). Sam has been writing since she was able to hold a pen, creating all kinds of stories, poems and even small books in her childhood. She was educated in creative writing with a focus on poetry as an undergraduate and then earned her master's in English and taught writing at a local university for more than ten years.

Discovering a deep interest in the environment, particularly the status of the world's coasts and oceans, Sam quit teaching and earned another dual master's degree in environmental geography and public administration. Sam's first book, Virtually Perfect, was sold in January 2004 while she was searching for environmental jobs upon completing her degrees. Receiving "the call" was a turning point that encouraged her to take another detour and pursue a full-time career as a romance author.

Keeping up with environmental interests, Sam supports several environmental organizations in addition to writing. She'd eventually like to merge her two major interests by writing sexy romances with environmental themes. Sam's favorite activities include building and paddling sea kayaks with her husband, gardening, candle making, cooking and collecting and reading tarot cards. Her future goals include traveling more and writing many, many books!

    FRICTION is the second in Samantha Hunter¿s HotWires trilogy and like its predecessor, it¿s a complex and tense romantic thriller. Sarah and Logan both have mixed up and rough pasts, things that prevent them from telling the truth to each other at first. They are afraid to let too much slip and become vulnerable to someone. Ms. Hunter is skilled at creating characters with plenty of emotional hang-ups, but more importantly, she¿s able to get the characters to let go of their problems in a realistic and touching manner. Sarah and Logan¿s trust in each other is gradually built up until they don¿t even realize themselves how much they have come to rely on each others intelligence and quick thinking. Interspersed with the serious moments are plenty of fun and carefree moments to give the reader a chance to get to know these well rounded characters. Vacation antics and mishaps populate this story, breaking up what would otherwise be an almost too serious and dramatic tale. Ms. Hunter knows that readers like a thriller but also that readers don¿t want a story that is depressing and FRICTION is a nice balance of serious police matters and evolving relationship thrills. This is an amazing follow up to FASCINATION and will guarantee that readers are going to be hungering for the third tale, EJ¿s story, in FLIRTATION. Sarah W, Romance Junkies. 4.5 stars
