Author Interview and Giveway: Marie Harte

Today I have Marie Harte over for an interview. Welcome :)

1. Welcome to my blog. Could you tell us about yourself?
I’m addicted to books, chocolate and coffee, not necessarly in that order. Writing is my life—along with my kids. LOL I have two energetic boys threatening to eat me out of the house. I’m also a night owl. I can’t read to fall asleep because I end up staying up all night to finish the book!

2. Also tell us about your new book, The Troublemaker Next Door?
It’s a really fun, sexy contemporary romance. *grin* When Flynn McCauley meets Maddie Gardner, sparks fly. She hates men. He’s not into relationships. She lost her job. He fixed her sink—but that’s not all he wants to fix. When a ride home turns into a lot more, Maddie and Flynn decide to keep things strictly casual. Strictly sexual. They won’t date. And they end up not dating…a lot. But soon Flynn wants more from the wary redhead. If he can just keep her distracted long enough to burrow under her skin, Flynn might convince Maddie they have a shot at real happiness. That’s if Maddie can overcome her past to take a chance on the future.

3. How did you come up with this series?
I’d written a book called Enjoying the Show—also about a tight-knit family of sexy brothers—and a few years ago it became a bestseller on Amazon. A big name agent contacted me about sending her something similar. Since I had nothing on hand, I hurried up and wrote what I’d then titled A Flair for Flynn. The agent never got back to me, but the story was so real, the characters so true and endearing, I had to write the rest. Sourcebooks was interested, and the McCauleys found a home! 

4. Tell us 3 things about Maddie?
-She’s very passionate and has a redhead’s temper
-She’s loyal to her friends
-She’s stubborn and can be too independent at times

5. And 3 things about Flynn?
-He’s not as much a player as most people think. 
-He loves his family.
-He’s quite the dirty talker—and man, can he back up his words!

6. Last, what are you working on now?
I’m finishing edits on a paranormal novella, Jackal’s Measure, for the Dark Fates anthology coming out with Fated Desires. Then I’m starting the last book in my Best Revenge series (for Samhain) titled Served Sweet--a baker gets revenge on her childhood rival and finds love in the process.

Thanks!

Thanks you!
