Today I’m excited to have guest author Wynter Daniels visiting the blog. Welcome, Wynter!
First of all, I’d like to give a huge thank you to Cynthia for letting me hang out at her blog today. Not only is she a hugely talented author, but she is an incredibly sweet and generous lady, one of my favorite people in the whole world. And no—she didn’t bribe me to say all that. It’s the truth!
I love romantic suspense and paranormal romance, just like Cynthia does. I write both. But I also write contemporary romance, and I have a brand new one out. THE SURROGATE HUSBAND happens to be one of my favorite books I’ve written. It’s an opposites attract story that puts a different spin on the fake wife trope. I completely fell in love with my hero and heroine, Dex and Lucy.
What do I love about them? Well, Dex is a buttoned up CPA whose life is neat and orderly. Until he meets his new client, Lucy, a pink-haired rock-and-roll chick who thrives on chaos and spontaneity. She usually goes for tatted up surfer guys, and even then, she rarely keeps them around longer than a quart of milk. You see, her father was an abusive ass. So maybe there is a bit of a monster in this story after all.
Monsters come in all shapes and sizes, and Lucy’s was her very own father, and she’s spent her whole adult life trying to avoid anyone who bore any similarities to him.
In Dex’s mathematical logic and orderly fixations, Lucy suspects she glimpses a little of the monster she left behind.
Here’s a little about the story:
Wild child lingerie store owner Lucy Hamilton is a happily confirmed bachelorette. Then her mother tells a tiny lie that Lucy has eloped. Now Lucy needs to find a “husband” for the weekend, and fast. Fortunately, her ridiculously hot, ridiculously straitlaced new accountant is willing to be her stand-in spouse. And the chemistry between Dex and Lucy is more than convincing―it’s sizzling. But for Lucy, falling for her fake new husband is the most dangerous thing she can do…
And here’s a snipet from the book:
Lucy couldn’t help but notice how his thick, brown hair fell over his trendy black glasses, strand over glossy strand. She glanced into his briefcase at the sections marked with one of those label-making machines. Proof positive that, as she’d suspected from their phone conversations, the man was just as neurotically hyper-organized as her father.
In fact, given the undeniable evidence of a buff bod under his expensive-looking suit and tie, he was an odd mix of stereotypical accountant and what a model would look like if he’d dressed up as the GQ version of an accountant for a photo shoot.
“Each box is tabbed so you can jot down expenses, broken down by category.” Pointing to the spreadsheet, he explained where she was to write in this and that. “I’ll email it to you so you’ll have it on your computer.”
God, that voice. It was like he’d just said, “I’ll email you naked pictures of myself and then come over with a jar of honey and a can of whipped cream.” It was so unfair that he had to look as good as he sounded.
