Next Big Thing

I was tagged for the Next Big Thing meme by Vivienne Westlake, and I’m happy to join in the fun.

What is the working title of your book?

Call to Attraction

Where did the idea come from for the book?

I started with a scenario: two co-workers who discover that proximity makes the heart grow fonder.

What genre does your book fall under?

It’s a contemporary romance novella.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

This would be an easier question to answer if I saw movies more often. So I can’t really answer that question, but I will say that once I saw the image I chose for the cover, I knew instantly that this was Peter and Sabrina. The models capture them perfectly.

What is your short synopsis of your book?

One man. One Woman. Not your average day at the office . . .

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

I’m self-publishing it. Look for it in major e-book outlets in February. I’ll post links on my book page here.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Two months.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

I wanted to write a series about people who find love at the office, and this story grew from there.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Many romances feature an ultimate fantasy with characters such as supermodel heroines and millionaire heroes. While I enjoy these types of stories, I feel strongly about everyday heroes and heroines finding love. Sabrina and Peter are like a lot of us–they hold jobs, spend time with friends. They also get to fulfill a few fantasies along the way.

And now, the blurb for Call to Attraction.

Two People
What does a man do when a work project puts him in a conference room with Sabrina Moore, the sexy woman of his dreams? If the man is Peter Merrill, he’s got three choices: (1) Fantasize about her; (2) Notice how sweet she is; or (3) Find out what she’s wearing under her suit jacket . . .

One Project
The three-week rush project reveals that presence makes the attraction grow stronger. As Peter and Sabrina put their marketing skills to work, Sabrina’s thoughts run to a call to action that has nothing to do with ad campaigns and everything to do with attraction.

Call to Attraction
When they realize their desire is mutual, suit jackets aren’t the only thing to come off. But Sabrina’s keeping a secret that may interfere with their relationship . . .

Most of the authors I know have been tagged for this meme already, so I decided to give this last part a fun spin. I am listing five books I’ve recently read and enjoyed.

Restraint by Charlotte Stein
This is an amazing enemies to lovers story that’s hot, hot, hot. I love the hero—he’s so unique (and I won’t say more because I don’t want to ruin it). This novella offers loads of angst and tension (in a good way). It’s more erotica than romance, but the ending will satisfy romance lovers as well.

A Marquess for Christmas by Vivienne Westlake
I had the pleasure of reading this historical erotic romance before it was published, and I loved the hero and heroine. The opening of the story was fabulous, and a key scene with the heroine and a basket stayed with me long after I finished reading. Remembering it still brings a smile to my face.

Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall
I loved this take on Alice in Wonderland. This story is a true delight both in the characters and the world of Wonderland. The fact that Hatter is wicked awesome definitely doesn’t hurt. :) It’s got some really heartrending moments as well, but the ending is lovely.

A Kiss for Midwinter by Courtney Milan
I read Milan’s historical romances over and over again. They are just that good. I especially love her unconventional characters. In the case of A Kiss for Midwinter, the hero is a doctor and the heroine a tradesman’s daughter. This story is packed with emotion and is absolutely beautiful.

A Needful Heart by J.M. Madden
In some stories, the hero just steals a small piece of your heart. This is one of those stories. Matt won me over with how much he adores Gina, and with how complex he is. Moving and beautiful are the best words to describe this contemporary romance.

Thanks for stopping by today!
