I’ve known Nicola Marsh for so many years that I can’t remember how long ago we first met! Anyway, she’s an inspiration in the way she writes so fast. (She’s catching me up at a rate of knots.) And we talk about – yeah, you guessed it. Gorgeous men, food, films…)
Anyway, over to Nic:
AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER…
I’m thrilled to help Kate celebrate her 50th book for Harlequin. What a monumental achievement, congrats Kate! I’ve known Kate for many years online and she’s always generous with her time. She’s also incredibly supportive and I’ll never forget her sending me one of her wonderful books as a pep-up when I needed it a few years back.
Her books are a delicious combination of sweet and sexy, and you can’t help but smile at her sigh-worthy happy endings.
Speaking of happy endings, I’m a bit partial to creating them myself. The challenge is taking two seemingly opposite characters and getting them through the ups and downs of a relationship to reach their HEA.
One of my favorite ways of doing this is in a marriage of convenience. (Or inconvenience as I like to call it!)
Enforced proximity driven by strong motivations is a guaranteed recipe for fireworks, and that’s what I’ve created in my current releases NOT THE MARRYING KIND (Entangled Publishing’s Indulgence series) and MARRYING THE ENEMY (Harlequin Presents Extra.)
In NOT THE MARRYING KIND, a reformed Vegas bad boy is the instigator of the marriage, whereas in MARRYING THE ENEMY it’s a feisty lapidary desperate to save her family’s jewelry business who proposes marriage to a brooding magnate, the son of a jailed criminal.
While Beck and Poppy, and Ruby and Jax take very different routes towards their HEA, I can safely say they reach a point when their respective marriages become very real!
My Happily Ever After would include ______
(insert your fantasy guy. Hugh Jackman? Ryan Gosling? Channing Tatum? Sky’s the limit!)
