I wanted something playful and light since the book is supposed to be a fun read. So while I found some great pictures to use for the cover, I finally picked the one that I believed represented the tone of the book the best. Without further ado, here it is:
Why did I write the book?
I wanted to do a romance about two people who were best friends since “forever” and in this case, forever is since kindergarten. :D
What is it about?
Kevin Edwards stands to inherit one million dollars. The catch? He must get married by Valentine’s Day. With only a month to spare, he seeks out the first woman who catches his interest: Tammy. But his best friend, Alexandra (Alex) Dixon is convinced he’s making the biggest mistake of his life. So she decides she will take Tammy’s place and be his bride instead. Can she convince him that things will be much better if they become more than friends or will he say “I do” to the wrong woman?
Is it deep and meaningful?
Nope. It’s just supposed to be a cute and fun romance. Nothing serious takes place. It won’t change your life or give you deep insights into anything. It’s only there for entertainment, and yes, this would be called “brain candy” or mere fluff. But sometimes a fun, quick read is what I’m in the mood for. :D
When will it be available?
It will be out soon. I am done with touching it up since it was very light work I had to do to it. Look for it around November 1st.
For those of you on my email list, I’ll send you the links when the book is up on Amazon, Smashwords, and B&N. I’ll also make an announcement on this blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and my newsletter blog.
How long is it?
It’s just a little over 36,000 words long, so this is a novella.
And a disclaimer
In case you didn’t read my previous post about this book, it used to be Substitute Bride under Kate Page. I dropped the pen name because I don’t have time to juggle that when I have books under Ruth Ann Nordin and a family (and all that goes with being a mom). So if you read the Kate Page version, you’ve already read the book. I have added a couple of scenes to it and deleted a couple of sexual scenes. But otherwise, it is the same story. I’ll add this disclaimer when I publish the book. I don’t want anyone to say I didn’t warn them. ;)
