Hooray for Hollywood!
Hello RU friends –
PtP was a big change for me. My two prior books (A NIGHT OF SOUTHERN COMFORT and HIS SOUTHERN TEMPTATION) were set in a small southern town just outside of Roanoke, VA. Elliott, VA is much like the town I grew up in and I am very familiar with how a small town works and feels.
Bu Hollywood, CA? L.A.? The movie industry?
Not so much.
Man, was the research a blast. I read copies of Variety, trolled entertainment blogs, read online accounts from people who work on movie sets, and I watched lots of movies. Iron Man 1 & 2. The Bourne Trilogy. Bullitt and The Getaway and quite a few episodes of Criminal Minds.
Tough work, huh?
My hero, Mick Blackwell, is an action movie star, the sexiest man in America the last two years, a former child star and son of Hollywood royalty. He is also a cocky, confident, sexy playboy.
A mix of Tony Stark, Jason Bourne, Steve McQueen and Shemar Moore it is no wonder that my heroine, Piper James just couldn’t resist him.
I loved everything about my Hollywood romance – the glamour, the celebrity, and the Oscars. It was a blast to write and I can’ wait to get back there again.
What is your favorite romance novel featuring a celebrity?
Nancy Fraser and Patti Shenberger discuss the intricacies of plotting a multi-family, multi-location story.
The harder they play . . . the harder they fall.
After publicly self-destructing over a heartbreak a year ago, bestselling romance writer Piper James is now making nice with her publisher by agreeing to teach Hollywood’s favorite action star how to act like he’s in love. Only playboy Mick Blackwell has no clue what love looks like.
When a seductive heat ignites between Piper and Mick, she jumps at the chance for a bit of fun between the sheets, but with two stipulations: she’s kept out of the public eye and things end when she returns to New York. Only Mick keeps changing the rules on her. Tempted by America’s favorite bad boy, Piper is wondering how far she’s willing to bend…
A Night of Southern Comfort, her best-selling debut novel earned 4.5 stars and was touted by RT Book Reviews as bringing a “fresh, modern feel to the genre while still sticking to the things that get our adrenaline pumping — sex and danger”. When she’s not exploring the theme of fooling around and falling in love, she’s collecting tasty man candy, indulging in a little comic book geek love, and stalking Joe Mangianello.
