A huge welcome today to the amazing debut author, Gina Maxwell! Not only is Gina a sweetheart, she wrote one of the most delicious books I've read this year, SEDUCING CINDERELLA. Look at that cover! YUM! I was lucky enough to read it before it was released and offered a cover quote, which really sums up my feelings on the book!
Deliciously sexy and fabulously fun, with a hero who knocked me out from the first page!
Gina's fab book helped launch Brazen, the new super sexy line of category books at Entangled Publishing. My next release, No Flowers Required, is a Brazen release as well, and it's wonderful to see them hitting the bestseller lists right out of the gate!
Here's the Brazen page at Entangled Publishing if you'd like to find out more about the releases! Click HERE
To give you a taste of the amazingly sexy banter from the book, Gina managed to convince Lucie to interview Reid, her brother's sexy MMA-fighting best friend. ;)
Read on for PART ONE of the interview, then stop back on Saturday for PART TWO. But best of all? One lucky commenter on both days (today's contest will run through this time tomorrow since I'm late posting) will WIN AN EBOOK COPY OF THE BOOK! So comment away!
[Reid and Lucie are sitting on stools in the front of the room, each holding a large white envelope. Reid is relaxed and smiling at the audience while Lucie looks slightly fidgety and uncomfortable with all the attention.]
Lucie: I guess we should get started.
Reid: All right. Welcome, everyone, to Sixty Seconds of Cinderella. Lucie and I are going to interview each other with the questions on the cards inside these envelopes.
Lucie: Which we haven’t seen, by the way.
Reid: [chuckles] No, we have no idea what we’re getting ourselves into. Okay, so here we go. Ladies first, babe.
Lucie: Oh, okay. [opens the envelope and takes out the note card] First question is, do you prefer to win by knock out or submission?
Reid: Your brother and I have had this argument many times. He prefers to win by submission, but I like the knock out, myself. There’s nothing like landing that perfect strike and watching your opponent fall completely boneless to the mat.
Lucie: Uh, you might not want to be so graphic next time, hon. I’m sure all the women here are fans of you, but they might not all be fans of the sport.
Reid: Good point. Sorry, ladies. [flashes killer smile at the audience causing more than a few sighs]
Lucie: Okay, next question. Go out to eat or stay home and order in?
Reid: As much as I love watching you get dolled up and taking you to a nice dinner, I’d definitely say order in.
Lucie: Really? I thought you liked going out more.
Reid: I used to, before you. But watching you eat tends to have a rousing affect on a certain part of my anatomy, and I like being able to attack you whenever I want instead of having to wait until we get home. [winks at Lucie]
Lucie: [blushing…hard…but failing to keep the amusement from her face] I cannot believe you just said that.
Reid: [addresses audience] Plus, she flirts shamelessly with waiters—
Lucie: [laughing] You told me to do that!
Reid: —so I prefer to keep her home all to myself.
Lucie: O-kay, next question. Dressed up or dressed down?
Reid: Is naked an option?
Reid: [laughing] Ok, fine, dressed down. The less clothes, the more comfortable I am.
Lucie: Drawing or sculpting?
Reid: Sculpting. I like drawing, but I prefer working with my hands. And I’ve been told I’m pretty good with my hands, right, Lu?
Lucie: Um… [clears throat and glances back at card] Okay, I’m not asking this last one. [looks around] Who wrote these anyway?
Reid: Probably Gina, the woman who documented our story. Why, what’s it say?
Lucie: Never mind. Your sixty seconds are over.
Reid: Come on, what could possibly have you turning that pretty shade of pink?
Lucie: [sighing and looking at him] Top…or bottom?
Reid: Absolutely…most definitely… [he holds her gaze, leans in, and gives her a wicked half-cocked grin] …top.
Lucie: [fans herself with her note card and envelope as Reid sits back and folds his arms over his chest with a satisfied smirk] Okay, well, that’s the end of your session. Are we done now?
Reid: Nope. Now it’s your turn to be in the hot seat, sweetheart.
Lucie: [mumbles] Crap.
Come back on Saturday when Reid grills Lucie about her preferences…and surprises the hell out of her. You don’t want to miss it!
