SPOTLIGHT ON BUZZ GUEST CATHY SKENDROVICH @cskendrovich Y’ALL! AUTHOR OF UNDERCOVER WITH THE NANNY, THE PIRATE’S BRIDE, A PIRATE BRIDE’S HOLIDAY MASQUERADE, & PRISONER OF LOVE! LET’S GENERATE A BUZZ!
Today my BUZZ GUEST is CATHY SKENDROVICH author of UNDERCOVER WITH THE NANNY, THE PIRATE’S BRIDE, A PIRATE BRIDE’S HOLIDAY MASQUERADE, and PRISONER OF LOVE!
Cathy has a new book coming out called UNDERCOVER WITH THE NANNY. It will be available April 23rd, 2018.
Here’s the BLURB!
DEA agent Sawyer Hayes came to California in search of a drug cartel leader who slipped through his fingers in El Paso. The link to finding him is Kate Munroe, a nanny for one of his henchmen. The problem? He didn’t expect to be so drawn to a possible suspect. How is he supposed to do his job when his growing feelings for her are clouding his judgment?
Interior designer Kate Munroe’s life is a train wreck. Her parents’ deaths left her with their mounds of debt, she can’t get a job designing even a cubicle, and she’s bunking in her best friend’s spare bedroom. To make ends meet, she’s a nanny to a lonely little boy whose rich father works all the time. Romance is not on her radar. But her hot new neighbor could change her mind, with his broad shoulders and Southern charm. Too bad his secrets could destroy her.
Cathy’s first novel is PRISONER OF LOVE and was published October 19th, 2015.
Cathy also wrote THE PIRATE’S BRIDE which was published January 1st, 2017.
Cathy also penned a Christmas tale called THE PIRATE BRIDE’S HOLIDAY MASQUERADE which became available last October, 2017.
Cathy has taken the time to answer some ‘normal’ and ‘not so normal’ questions for us today.
‘Normal’ Question Spot
1. What is the name of your new book?
Undercover with the Nanny
2. What is it about?
I think the blurb will explain it best: “DEA agent Sawyer Hayes never planned on being so drawn to a possible suspect. How is he supposed to do his job when his growing feelings for her are clouding his judgment?”
Romance is not on interior designer and nanny Kate Munroe’s radar. But her hot new neighbor could change her mind, with his broad shoulders and Southern charm. Too bad his secrets could destroy her.
3. Do you have an inspiration story to share with us?
A senior editor at Entangled came up with the book idea of a cop falling for a nanny, and then I took the plot and tweaked it a bit. I imagined the ending to the book first, and then worked backward, believe it or not. I wanted a movie-type ending, and my older son gave me the logistics for it. When my editor was going through the manuscript, she actually commented “Nice!” in the margin. I’m pretty proud of it, but you’ll have to purchase the book to find out.
4. Is this a series? Are there more books we can look forward to for these characters?
As of now, this is a standalone romantic suspense. It does have an open ending, which will allow me to add a sequel if I come up with one later.
‘Not so Normal’ Question Spot
1. You have an imaginary friend only you can see. What does he/she look like?
That’s a hard question. I like to deal in reality, so this is tough. I think I would like someone like Nora Roberts. A bit older than me, a mega star, who could help steer me in my writing career.
2. If you had wings what would they look like? Fairy or Angel? What color and size?
Fairy wings. I don’t know if I deserve angel wings yet, haha. I would like iridescent ones, because you can never have too much bling! Medium sized. Not sweeping, and not like Tinker Bell’s, either.
3. Would you rather encounter an alien or a ghost?
A ghost. Aliens give me the creeps, while I imagine ghosts were once real people. Plus, if they become visible, they want you to help them go where they need to. I’m all for helping them leave this realm!
4. You have a mystery to solve. What magical creatures or persons are on your team?
Uh-oh. I’m going to fail this. The magical creatures I think of are like, Disney characters: Tinker Bell, a flying carpet, the Cloak of Invisibility from Harry Potter, and Thor, because, really…he’s just gorgeous to look at! He doesn’t have to do anything but flex his muscles.
Wow! Great answers! I think Thor would be a definite asset on any mission.
