Band of Brothers (and Sisters!): Bella Andre Introduces the Sullivans

The Look of Love by Bella AndreToday we welcome author Bella Andre, whose Sullivan series continues with her upcoming release, I Only Have Eyes for You, the fourth in the series. When we heard there were six brothers and two sisters in the family, we thought it’d be good to have Bella explain just who was who, and where he or she figured into the books. Thanks, Bella!

I have a thing for alpha heroes with big hearts and the sparks between each hero and heroine actually singe my fingers as I write each Sullivan book. In addition to all the sweet—and sizzling—moments of connection throughout each book, I also love writing the big family get togethers. Not only does each character’s personality come out more in each story in the series, but as we watch them interact with each other, we get some insight into how each of their love stories will play out in the future. Twin sister Sophie has claimed story #4 in I Only Have Eyes For You, so we’ll finally get to watch a Sullivan sister fall in love...under the watchful eye of her six overprotective big brothers.

Here’s a little bit about each of the eight fun, sexy siblings in my new contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family:

Age: 28

I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite—my Sullivans are all so much fun to write about—but if you have a favorite Sullivan, let me know!


Bella Andre has always been a writer. Songs came first, and then non-fiction books, but as soon as she started her first romance novel, she knew she’d found her perfect career. Since selling her first book in 2003, she’s written twenty “sensual, empowered stories enveloped in heady romance” (Publisher’s Weekly) about sizzling alpha heroes and the strong women they’ll love forever for Simon & Schuster, Random House, and Grand Central Forever.

Marcus gets my vote for my favorite Sullivan so far...with Gabe coming in a close second! I can't wait to read "I Only Have Eyes For You"!

I love the Sullivans family, each of its member seperately but also as a
whole. It's just warming to watch them interact with each other, they
simply seem real : there is a lot of love, a lot of joyful squabbling,
some serious moments too.

Among the Sullivan men, I'd really have a hard time picking just one!
I'll take the six of them, LOL! More seriously, I'm very very eager to hear more about Smith, he intrigues me to no end! I'm quite curious about Zach too, what made him that cynical?

Unexpectedly romactic. The adoration, devotion, patience, love of Marcus was very unbelievably romantic and oh so hot! My fave so far is Marcus! Then Gabe hot!

I wish Zach was real. He is my favorite of all the Sullivan's! LOVE THIS SERIES... I don't want it to end.... Are they based off of an actual family? Bella Andre you are a wonderful writer! You have definitely inspired me... not only to write but to believe in love again.

The bet at the end of "I Only Have Eyes For You" between Lori and Zach had me confised because she said "last one standing" and I had thought she meant oit of all of them and remembered that Bella Andre still hasn't written about Smith or Ryan yet. So I'm guessing it's just a bet between Lori & Zach.
Reading "If You Were Mine" now. I can't wait for the other three!
