When I was asked to interview Carly for her upcoming release I of course said yes. But then I got to thinking…we’ve done the author interview, and the character interview. What more can I ask her that I don’t already know. Then it came to me….a word association interview. So here we go our first ever word association. Here’s how this is going to work. We’ve given Carly one word, she has to answer with the first thing that comes to mind when she reads it.
CP: Diet Coke
CP: Chocolate. Preferably milk chocolate. Beyond that I’m flexible!
TBRG: Comfort food
TBRG: Favorite literary hero
CP: Literary? Ari from Exodus. Seriously. And I’m not a literary person.
TBRG: Favorite literary heroine
CP: Not sure I have one, LOL.
TBRG: Comfort read
CP: Recently reread LaVyrle Spencer’s Perfect Beds, which got me into writing Romance and it completely gave me the same ooh chills feeling … just wacky POV!
TBRG: TV Show
CP: Every season something new hooks me. Sorry! Not just one. J But to this day I miss ALIAS. Have posters all over the basement.
CP: Whatever comedy or romantic comedy is in theaters at the time! Make me smile and laugh and I’m happy!
CP: Good Girl (that’s one word to me <g>)
TBRG: Thanks Carly for playing along. Is there anything you want to tell us about Perfect Fling?
CP: Perfect Fling tackles the subject of what happens to someone who is raised to believe he’s no good? How can he be convinced otherwise when that voice in his head overrules what his heroine sees? Cole Sanders has spent years under cover and barely knows who HE is. He likes it that way, distant from everyone and not letting anyone close. Until a one night stand with good girl Erin Marsden leaves them with the closest connection of all – a baby! Then Erin is threatened and Cole steps up to protect her forcing them to come to terms with each other. And love.
Thank you! I love hanging out and answering your questions!
Erin … The Good Girl
Assistant District Attorney, Erin Marsden, is Serendipity’s quintessential good girl. The only daughter of the ex-police chief, she has never made a misstep, content with her quiet, predictable life … or so she thinks. Until Cole Sanders returns to town with heated interest in his eyes and shadows in his past.
Cole … The Bad Boy
After seven years of deep undercover work in New York City, Cole returns to Serendipity to help his aging father and to find his moral compass once more. Not to get involved with wholesome Erin Marsden. Even as a rebellious teen, he knew a girl like Erin was off limits and that hasn’t changed. But neither one of them can resist their off-the-charts chemistry and a one night stand brings complications neither Erin nor Cole expected.
The Attraction … Off the Charts!
Then Erin’s current case plunges her into a killer’s crosshairs. With more at stake than anyone knows, Erin succumbs to Cole’s take-charge attitude. As a bodyguard, he’s the best. As a lover, he’s even better. But there’s more than the matter of Erin’s safety at stake. And Cole must forgive the sins of his past and prove to himself – and to Erin – that he’s capable of the love and the forever she – and their baby – desperately need.
