Do you guys remember my book Divorced, Desperate and Delicious? Lacy took a singing fish to Chase’s head when he took her hostage in her own home. Remember she let him eat a cat-food sandwich? Of course that was to get even with him for handcuffing her to the bed. Ah, they were a fun couple to write about. Quirky and crazy. I got quite a bit of fan mail on that book.
But oddly enough, one name that appeared in many of those fan letters was that of Chase’s best buddy. Everyone loved the bad boy, the player, and the no-good womanizing hunk of a man named Jason Dodd.
Okay, I admit it, I kind of had a soft spot for Jason, too. It’s that bad boy charm—the devilish twinkle in their eyes, their hard bodies, their come-here baby smiles. Ahh, but it’s more than just their drop-dead sexiness. For me, and I think for most of us, it’s the challenge. The challenge to tame a bad boy. And it’s also their wounded souls. Most bad boys are bad because they’ve been hurt. They wear their free spirits, their love-me-and-leave smiles, as armor. And what woman doesn’t crave to tear down that armor and make the old haunts disappear into a blissful future. Oh, yeah, my readers loved Jason.
But as we all know, it takes a special girl to tame a bad boy—a special girl to get past the armor and into the heart of a wounded soul. And I had just the right woman. Remember Sue? She was Lacy’s best friend in the first DD&D book. After one glimpse of bad-boy Jason Dodd, Sue was questioning her no-date, no-men, no-sex lifestyle. Yup, Sue had a thing for Jason even in Divorced, Desperate and Delicious. But “her thing” gets taken to whole new level in their very own book.
In Divorced, Desperate and Dating, released November 25th, Sue and Jason go toe-to-toe. Or rather, lips to lips. Jason wants Sue. Sue wants love. And a stalker wants Sue dead. Jason is determined to seduce Sue while he plays the role of body guard. Jason’s theory: We might as well have fun. Sue is determined not to become just another of his conquests. Sue’s theory: She’s not playing poker with her heart. After chapters of laughter, sexual tension, tapping into each other’s emotional pasts, and catching a stalker before someone ends up toast, Sue manages to do what every girl dreams: She tames and catches her very own bad boy. Below is the back cover blurb for Divorced, Desperate and Dating.
Sue Finley murdered people…on paper. As a mystery writer, she knew all the angles, who did what and why. The only thing she couldn’t explain was…well, men. Dating was like diving into a box of chocolates: sometimes the sweetest-looking specimens were candy-coated poison. After a breakup with a bank robber and a divorce from a cross dresser, she gave it up for good. Then came Detective Jason Dodd.
Raised in foster homes, Jason swore never to need anyone as much as the parent who abandoned him. That was why he failed to follow up after experiencing the best kiss of his life: real passion was addictive. But when Sue Finley started getting death threats, all bets were off. The blonde spitfire was everything he’d ever wanted—and she needed him. And though this novel situation had a quirky cast of characters and an unquestionable bad guy, he was going to make sure it had a happy ending.
So there you have it: My next release about a bad boy and the heroine who tamed him. And here’s what I want to hear from you: what is it that makes you fall for a bad boy? Come on, tell me what it is. I’m getting ready to start a new book, and I’m looking for some new bad boy traits that will make my new heroine melt right into her panties.
And to one lucky poster, I’m giving a way a pack of note cards, and either a copy of Divorced, Desperate and Delicious or Weddings Can Be Murder. So . . . come on, tell me what it is about bad boys that makes your heart go flutter.
