Today we have a guest spotlight and tour going on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight was one way for Megan Davis to keep her family secret. The press intruded on her life when her twin brother, Mark, became the star quarterback for the Delaware Demons. Disrespectful of tabloid superstars, financial advisor, Meg, was shocked when she was tapped to launch a celebrity division in the prestigious investment firm, Dillon & Weed. The biggest surprise: the charisma of her first client.
Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan, wary of women who wanted to bask in his fame or sell his secrets to the media, valued privacy above all else. Would attractive Megan Davis, his new financial advisor charm the truth from him or would he continue his high profile but lonely existence to keep his secret safe? Jealousy, deceit and scandal threaten two careers and the quest for true love and trust in this roller-coaster-ride contemporary romance
1) “Like I haven’t heard that one before. I don’t give a damn you’re famous, okay. Can we get that straight? I’m not impressed, not going to grovel at your feet. You’re simply a potential client whose money I may be managing. No more and no less. I’m not going to swoon and ask for an autograph or throw myself at you. Of course, I’ll do my best to take care of your money as if it was my own, but that’s as far as it goes.”
“Way to use your charm on me to win my business.” Chaz leaned forward.
“I don’t need charm; I have brains.” A smug smile crossed Meg’s lips.
“Whoa! Oh, yes…Harvard M.B.A., right? Harvey told me.” Chaz sat back in his chair again.
“Right.” Meg leaned back, too, folding her arms across her chest.
“Yale School of Drama here. So don’t condescend to me. I’m not a ‘dumb’ actor in love with himself. And you’re dressed pretty hot for a financial advisor with only dollars and cents on her mind. Not that I’m objecting. I love eye candy…great rack, too…” He grinned at her then pulled out his cell phone.
“Eye candy? Rack? Did you say rack? Why the nerve! Is that your cell phone? Turn it off…” She rose up out of her seat.
5) “This is going to take all night if you keep interrupting…” Her brows knitted.
Focus. Stop drooling. Remember, he puts his pants on one leg at a time just like everyone else. Stop thinking about his pants!
“All night? Is that part of the service Dillon and Weed provides?” He cocked an eyebrow while attempting, unsuccessfully, to stifle a smile.
Megan couldn’t suppress a laugh as the heat crept from her neck to her cheeks.
“I love making you blush…so pretty.” He tucked a stray strand of hair behind her ear.
Her blush deepened. “Can I continue…please?” Focus, Meg! Oh, touch me again…shut up, Meg!
I didn’t start writing until about 17 years ago. I had two small children and used to get up at 5:30am to write for two hours before they got up.
No one believed I could be a writer…least of all me…but I was driven to do it anyway. Like an addict I was compelled to write.
I started out writing 500 word articles on advertising, business and parenting, based on my own experience. Lo and behold, after my first article failed, everything else I wrote got published.
This was exciting and encouraged me to attempt my first book, “Beyond the Bake Sale, the Ultimate School Fund-Raising Book.”
I got an agent from a friend of mine and she found a top publisher, St. Martin’s Press, with a fabulous editor, Elizabeth Beier and I was off.
After six more non-fiction books were published, I tried my hand at fiction. One cold day last January, while I was recuperating from loss and illness, Callie and Mac landed in my head and told me their story. I flew to my computer to get it all down, just the way they were telling me.
“Now and Forever, a Love Story” was born. The characters have no resemblance to anyone I know and, least of all, to me. They are completely formed total strangers that leaped out of my head and onto the page.
It was a wonderful experience, listening to their story. I fell in love with them. After the book was done, I couldn’t let them go. They were kind enough to bring another character to the forefront, Danny Maine who told me his story and “Now and Forever 2, the Book of Danny” was born.
After that I became a writing machine, writing seven days a week as many as seven hours a day. I finished “Now and Forever 3, Blind Love”, the first two books in the Moonlight Series: “Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights” and “April’s Kiss in the Moonlight”. And the first two books in The List series: “The Marriage List” and “The Love List”. I am finishing up the last books in these current series and will begin a new series in 2013, “Hollywood Hearts”.
I hope you will keep reading as I intend to keep writing until the stories run out, which doesn’t appear to be soon! Thank you for buying and reading my books.
