Thank you to the lovely Elizabeth for hosting me. Lucky Fall is about a bashful bookseller who has a birthday encounter with one very sexy British billionaire. I managed to catch Victor Ivanov in between business meetings so your followers would get a more intimate glimpse of the man who rocked Julianne’s world.
Victor – I would keep it in my mansion, but I don’t care for secrets, but I must admit I’m intrigued why anyone would want to hide such a thing. Julianne would want to keep it as a pet and I can already see that argument.
MK – What is your favourite colour for socks?
Victor – Black – versatile enough to wear with a suit or jeans. However, I am most comfortable sans clothing, including foot coverings.
MK – Boxers or briefs?
Victor – Boxer briefs – the best of both worlds. However, again I must admit I would rather be at my most comfortable. Refer to prior question.
MK – *blushes. Clears throat.* Dogs or cats?
Victor – Definitely dogs. Especially the beautiful Blood hound Julianne rescued. He sometimes gets confused about who is alpha male, so I inevitably play the bad cop role as Julianne indulges him a great deal. But then again, her compassion is one of the things that draws me to her.
MK – Apart from Julianne what other famous person would you like to get naughty with?
Victor – I plead the fifth. Although, if you placed my sockless feet on hot coals, I would tell you Diane Lane. She resembles Julianne.
MK – Aww, very sweet, Victor.
Victor – Yeah, don’t let word spread about that. I do have a reputation to protect.
MK – Would you ever take part in a TV reality show? Which one?
Victor – Never – I value my privacy too much. Although, I think Julianne could win America’s Next Top Model.
MK – Tell us something we don’t know about Julianne.
Victor – Her favourite presents are books, chocolates, and candles…in that order. Also, she enjoys role play…. don’t tell her I told you.
MK – What will I find if I look in your fridge?
Victor – Forgive my manners, I should have offered you something.
MK – Oh no, this really is just an interview questions.
Victor – Oh, okay then, I have chilled champagne, fresh strawberries and French cheese.
MK – Um, change my mind then. I’d actually like that. (Sipping champagne) What’s your worst quality?
Victor – I’m tenacious. When I know what I want I go after it. I’m a very jealous man, and that can make it difficult to have a relationship with me.
MK – What would you say was the best thing before sliced bread?
Victor – Bread.
MK – Clever.
Victor – You asked. Seriously, I would say the written word. Books were my friends before I ever knew what friendship was.
MK – What’s the naughtiest thing you ever did as a kid?
Victor – I had a difficult childhood, but I did once steal a loaf of bread… unfortunately, it wasn’t sliced.
MK – I’m letting that go.
Victor – I appreciate it. As I said, I value my privacy and if I honestly answered that question, I’m afraid it could get me into some trouble.
MK – What’s on your iPod?
Victor – I don’t care for those apples.
MK –*Scratches head, then gets joke, and chuckles.* Seriously.
Victor – The favourite playlist on my phone contains Oasis, The Beatles, and U2.
A woman who thought she was finished with love meets the one man capable of changing her mind.
Julianne Brenan was living her life like a nun without a church. Suffering from a betrayal she let define her, she chooses to live in solitude. Then a chance encounter on her birthday with a younger, handsome, billionaire leads to a night of passion like she’s never experienced. Victor Ivanov releases all her inhibitions and makes her feel alive.
Julianne is thankful for the experience and chooses to cherish the memory of Victor’s gentle but demanding touch. But Victor has no intention of being a memory for Julianne. She’s a beautiful but bashful bookseller, and he’s no ordinary billionaire.
I am a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. I have a full time life and two busy teenagers, but in the dark of night, I sit by the warm glow of my computer monitor, and attempt to conjure up passionate heartwarming stories with plenty of humour.
I started imagining stories in my head at a very young age. In fact, I got so good at it that friends asked me to create plots featuring them as the heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. We’d spend hours on the phone while I came up with a series of unrealistic, yet tender events, which led to a satisfying conclusion. You’ve heard of fan fiction… this was friend fiction.
Even with that, it took many years to realize I could produce an actual full-length book that readers would enjoy. I try to make my stories humorous, realistic, with flawed but redeeming characters. I hope you enjoy my stories and always find The Happily Ever After in every endeavour.
