Author Interview and giveaway: Mira Lyn Kelly

Today I have Mira Lyn Kelly over for an interview :)
And there is a chance to win her book too.

1. Tell me about yourself. 
Okay, so I’m Mira Lyn Kelly… write-at-home-mom to four wild and wonderful kids and one crazy cute pup named Pluto. I’m married to my very own friends-to-lovers HEA (can you guess my favorite kind of story, lol!!??) and we all live in the middle of Minnesota (which is gorgeous. You should move here). I write the flirt, sizzle and fun and have a new book--THE WEDDING DATE BARGAIN-- out June 6th. YAY!!

2. Tell me about your new book. 
THE WEDDING DATE BARGAIN is the second stand-alone book in the Wedding Date Series, and let me assure you, it’s bringing back all the hottest, sizzle and swoon-worthy best men Chicago has on offer!

Max Brandt is a good guy with a few bad-boy habits he was determined to protect Sarah from when they met in college. But when he finds her back in town on business, he figures they’ve both got enough experience so the old rules won’t apply.

Not quite.

Workaholic Sarah is through playing by other people’s rules and while she’d wanted “it all” from Max eight years ago, now there’s only one thing she’s after: the demise of her pesky virginity. And her best bet in making that happen is to pretend like it doesn’t exist. After all, she reads books and watches movies — how hard can it be to fake a little sexual savvy?

Harder than she thinks.

It doesn’t take Max long to figure out that he’s being played. But the thing about Sarah Cole is … she’s even harder to resist now than she was the first time around.

3. What was the inspiration behind this book? 
I was flipping through Pinterest and saw this gorgeous picture of a bride riding on the back of a motorcycle. I’d had a pretty good idea of the kind of characters Max and Sarah were going to be already. He’s this big over protective guy and she’s this good girl who’s been dying for a bit of bad. One look at this snap and I could just see her standing there on the sidewalk watching as the bike pulled up to the church…imagining what it would be like to be that girl on the back. It was the scene I needed to really show me who these two were and I built from there.

4. What are you working on now?
I’m just finishing up the fourth Wedding Date book in the series now, and having the best time getting Brody a happily ever after that measures up to what he’s been watching with all his friends. Love these guys!!

Thank you!

Win: May the best man win
