Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, but when the sexy European conductor Wolf Braun takes over her struggling symphony, her hesitation almost flies out the window with the notes of her flute—until he opens his mouth. Wolf is arrogant, haughty, and seems to have a personal vendetta against Melody. Oh, and he’s her boss. If she wants to keep her job as principal flutist, she’ll have to impress Wolf while simultaneously keeping her undeniable attraction to herself.
Wolf came to America to get as far away from his past as possible, and to recover some of the swagger he had as one of the world’s best maestros. He never imagined being forced to reassess the entire orchestra’s talent—and potentially fire anyone who doesn’t make his cut. Dating the attractive flutist is out of the question, but as their feelings reach a fever pitch, can they risk both their careers for a chance at love?
Coke or Pepsi?
Actually I LOVE Mountain Dew! I buy the little cans because it makes me jump off the walls.
Dystopian or Paranormal?
Dystopian. I grew up watching Mad Max, Terminator, and all the End-of-the-world 80’s and 90’s movies.
Book or Movie?
I enjoy both! I just saw Star Trek into Darkness and loved it. My review can be found here:
And I’m currently reading Game of Thrones and loving it- despite the darkness and icky sex scenes. Way too much information sometimes, Mr. George Martin!
Print or eBook?
I love holding print books in my hand. Although, e-readers are great for long plane trips so you don’t have to pack a bunch of books. The longest plane trip I had was to Hawaii from the East Coast. I WISH they’d invented e-readers by then, but alas all I had was a few print books. That makes me sound REALLY old. I’m getting wrinkles just thinking about it!
Coffee or Tea?
Both- anything with caffeine. The only tea I don’t like is Earl Grey- which pains me beyond belief because that’s Captain Jean Luc Picard’s favorite tea. I wish I could like it.
Thor or Iron Man?
Thor. He’s beautiful. Iron Man is arrogant and snarky. And too old for me. LOL
Pancakes or French Toast?
I will eat them both! Yummy! In reality, though I eat oatmeal for breakfast every morning to stay healthy. :( I know- my very boring life again.
Melissa Marr or Julie Kagawa?
I have no idea who these people are! Wow, does that make me really old?
The Beatles or The Beach Boys?
I listen to classical music mostly! LOL
Faeries or Angels?
Faeries all the way!
Thanks for this fun interview! I had a blast.
About the Author
Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.
Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be "A concert flutist" when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, sci fi author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.
Now for the professional bio:

Her writings have appeared in Mindflights, Niteblade, Silver Blade, Emerald Tales, Hazard Cat, Moon Drenched Fables, A Fly in Amber, and Aurora Wolf.
