Remember a couple of weeks ago, when I hosted the first book in this story? Well, we get to see not only how it ends, but also how it plays out in the long run. I’m curious too as to which one will he be.
The Red Dress (The Affair, Book 2) by Aidée James, narrated by Felicia Palmer released in May in the Women’s Fiction genre.
Buy on Audible
Giving Cris a ticket for a one night stand with anyone she wanted saved their marriage. Or so Owen thought. But Bo was no random choice, and when Cris gave him her body, he gave her his heart.
Neither Owen or Bo want to give her up. With two men that love her, and two men she loves, the time has now come to make the decision that will change all of their lives.
Who will it be?
Please, share this post!

About the Author: Aidée James
When Mexican-American author Aidèe Jaimes isn’t chasing after her energetic daughter and spending time with her happily ever after husband in their Florida home, she’s living other lives through her characters. As her writing evolved into darker, sexier, no holds-barred stories, she transitioned from the pen name Haden Hudson, to the author she is today!
Hi Aidée, and thank you for being with us today
Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook.
The process itself is quite simple for the author, because the producer or narrator, does most of the work. I simply approve. The hardest thing for me was finding the perfect narrator. I auditioned several until I came across Felicia Palmer. She blew me away with her audition and I knew she was the one!
How did you select your narrator?
I auditioned. There were some very good narrators, but they were missing something I couldn’t even name. The story is extremely emotional, and I needed to hear that. When Felicia took on Cris, I felt every bit of her angst.
How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process?
With Felicia, she took on the role of Cristiana and made it so much her own, along with all the other characters, I didn’t have to guide her. The only time I assisted was during the pronunciation of Cris’s first name, Maria. Other than that, she was amazing.
Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
All of my writing has some sort of real life inspiration behind it. Although you may never know which part I actually played in it. I may have been the heroine or the villain. In some cases both. This is no different. Writing is my outlet, and I pour everything I am into it.
Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook than in the book format?
The main thing about this story is that it’s extremely emotional. Something my readers mention a lot is that they can feel her angst through the words. Felicia’s audio performance intensifies that tenfold, and I really believe even people who’ve read the Affair series, will find this to feel greater.
Have any of your characters ever appeared in your dreams?
I’ve never had characters appear in my dreams. Nope. They haunt my every waking hour though!
What’s your favorite?
My favorite food is: Pizza
Song: I have too many!
Book: Too many too, but I will say Sherillyn Kenyon’s Fantasy Lover is one I hug to my chest when I get my hands on it.
Television Show: Chopped
Movie: The Scarlet Pimpernel (I love the book too!)
Sports Team: Don’t watch
City: New Orleans!!!!!
Are there any of those things referenced in your work?
I often reference those things in my books because every single character, good guy, bad guy, and their mothers are all me, therefore they like what I do! The most influential of my likes however, is New Orleans. You will see that all the time in my books. It’s where my heart goes, the place that makes me sigh, and where I ache to see again.
Are you an audiobook listener?
I actually just recently started listening, and I really love it! But I still also love the smell of a book!
What’s next for you?
Next for me is a long list! I have several books in the works for the year and into the next, as well as other audio books currently in production. One of these includes the spinoff of The Ticket and Red Dress, called The Promise. Also being produced by Felicia Palmer!
