Whenever I finish writing a book, my mindset is along the lines of “thank god it’s done.” I never think in terms of whether I like it or not. Of course I like all my books. They’re like children. They’re MINE and I’m protective of them. The characters are real in my head. But whenever I’m asked what my favorite book I’ve written is, I don’t know how to answer. Or I didn’t. I now have a favorite, and it’s coming out this December! (Side note: it is not my favorite title. Apologies to Victoria.)
So here’s a little information about Because of the List:
Taylor McCabe likes equations. They make sense. But one buttoned-up computer whiz plus an injured army pilot simply does not add up. It’s time to get over her childish crush on Alex Worth, her brother’s best friend, and find a husband. Enter The List – Taylor’s ten must-have traits for a viable suitor.
But her plan goes awry when Alex insists on vetting each contender. The way he dismisses them feels like the actions of a protective boyfriend. Strangely, his attitude makes her even more attracted to him. Too bad he doesn’t meet even one of her requirements….
Why is this my favorite book? I don’t know. I enjoyed writing a geeky heroine for a change. I love stories with military heroes and this is my first attempt at one. The hero is the heroine’s big brother’s best friend and I love that particular hook in stories. The book is set in my new home state of Wisconsin. It all seemed to come together well. At any rate, I hope readers will love it as much as I do!
