For those of you who haven’t read my Holt Medallion winner, The Fortune Hunter, it has been released in mass market edition! I think it’s a fun, sexy marriage of convenience story with a sensual twist. I’ve got a fun little trailer on my website and here’s a blurb for the book.
Heiress Faith Castle wants to be a mother, and she can’t wait forever for Mr. Right to come along. When she meets Connor Kingston, it’s not exactly love at first sight. But isn’t any marriage a bargain? He’s yummy, he’s available, and he thinks she’s sexy…
Faith gets the family she’s always wanted, and Connor gets her father’s company. But the terms go beyond that. Connor will be faithful—if Faith agrees to a no-holds-barred sex life. The shy heiress is not sure she can satisfy her new husband’s desires. As he tenderly and boldly releases Faith from her inhibitions, she learns to appreciate herself, body and soul.
And then something even more unexpected happens…Faith falls for Connor. But that was never part of the bargain.
The idea for The Fortune Hunter came to me while I was watching The Heiress with Olivia DeHavilland and Montgomery Clift. It’s an old historical movie (yes, you all know I love old movies!) in which the heroine is romanced by a fortune hunter. Or is he really only after her money? I wondered what would happen if the story was updated to the present. Then I wondered what would happen if the couple actually made a bargain out of the marriage. And that was the glimmer of The Fortune Hunter.
Movies are updated all the time! The Thomas Crown Affair (although I preferred the original). Hah, now they’ve even remade A Nightmare on Elm Street. But have you noticed how no one has tackled Gone with the Wind? What great old movie would you like to see remade?
