Welcome Back RITA-nominated Roni Loren



Get Lost in a Story is thrilled to welcome back author, Roni Loren. I interviewed Roni back in January and since then her book MELT INTO YOU was nominated for a RITA in the Single Title Contemporary category. Now she’s back to promote her latest Berkley Heat novel CAUGHT UP IN YOU. And she’s brought along two very special people: the stars of that novel, Kelsey LeBreck and Wyatt Austin.

Kelsey and Wyatt were good enough to answer our fun questions below—and they gave some great ones (read down to see their favorite kid-jokes!). But first, here’s a little bit about their story.
 Welcome Roni, Kelsey and Wyatt!!

CAUGHT UP IN YOU – A blurb

The girl who has spent her life running is about to be caught . . . by love

After a shaky past, Kelsey LeBreck's future is looking good. She's been saving money for culinary school with her earnings from The Ranch, a private BDSM resort. Even better, she's landed a day job where she can practice baking and flirt with her favorite customer. However, having secret fantasies about Wyatt Austin is where it has to end. If there's one thing Kelsey knows can derail her, it's a relationship. But when a danger from her past threatens to steal her fresh start, the intense executive may be the only one who can help her.

Wyatt doesn't have room on his agenda for dating, but something about the pretty young waitress stirs desires he thought were long buried. So when he needs someone to pose as his girlfriend at an important business retreat and finds out Kelsey needs to go off the grid for a while, he can't resist making her an offer. Soon, Kelsey learns that Wyatt's power in the boardroom is no match for his power in the bedroom, and she wonders if her heart will survive. Because Wyatt Austin is a man who gets what he wants, and now he wants her.

ABOUT RONI:
Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son. 
If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rockstars, er, rock concerts. Yeah, that's it. She is the National Bestselling Author of The Loving on the Edge series from Berkley Heat. Website: www.roniloren.com
And now a crazy Q&A with Kelsey LeBreck and Wyatt Austin (You're gonna love it!):
LIZ: What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
Wyatt: An opportunity to get my relationship with my brother, Jace, back on track. I wish we hadn’t spent so many years being jackasses about it.

Kelsey: A second chance at living the life I want. I screwed up pretty badly the first time around. I still worry that I’ll become that person again.

LIZ: What’s the most exciting trip you’ve ever taken?
Kelsey: I haven’t had a chance to take many trips. Money’s always been too tight. But I’d love to go on a beach vacation.

Wyatt: ~shrugs~ I get to travel around the world for business. I’ve seen some beautiful places but I usually don’t have time to take in the sights. Maybe one day I’ll have the chance to slow down and enjoy them.


LIZ: What actors do you imagine portraying you in a movie?
Wyatt: Someone told me the other day that I looked like that Henry Cavill guy in the Superman movies, but only when he’s in Clark Kent form. (Click here to see picture!) Apparently, I’d need to wear a latex suit and a cape to look like Superman.

Kelsey: ~peeks at Wyatt’s answer~ Now there’s an idea. : )

Wyatt: Don’t even think about it.

LIZ: Can you tell me three things that are, at this moment, in your purse or pocket?
Kelsey: My appointment schedule for The Ranch since I can’t remember anything if I don’t write it down, a recipe I clipped from a magazine at the dentist office, and mace—because you never know. I’ve made some dangerous enemies in the past.

Wyatt: Keys, phone, and wallet. Why would I have anything else?

LIZ: If you were given a chance to travel to the past where would you go and specifically why?
Kelsey: I’d go back to when I was a teenager and instead of worrying about some stupid guy, I’d get my crap together and go to college. Save myself a lot of heartache and trouble.

Wyatt: ~looks away and peers out the window, frowning~ There are a lot of things I’d like to go back and fix. Can we just move on to the next question? I’ve got to get back to the office.

LIZ: What will always make you smile, even on a bad day?
Kelsey: Besides serving Wyatt breakfast at the diner? Baking. I don’t care how awful a day I’ve had, the kitchen calms me.

Wyatt: Going downstairs to my home theatre and watching movies. I can get lost doing that. I’m currently working my way through all of Hitchcock’s films again.

LIZ: What is your biggest vice?
Wyatt: My tolerance for others is limited. I’m much more comfortable working with numbers.

Kelsey: I act before I think sometimes. And that means I haven’t always made the best decisions.

LIZ: What’s your favorite kid joke?
Wyatt: How does a tree check its email? Answer: It logs in.

Kelsey: Where do books like to sleep? Answer: Under their covers.

LIZ HAS GOTTA ASK: What do you think of the way Roni handled your story? Is there anything she’s learned about you since publishing your book that we should know about?
Kelsey: I don’t think Roni liked me or Wyatt very much when she first started telling our story. We weren’t very likable people when she’s written about us before in other stories. But I think when she got to know us better, we won her over. Now she won’t stop talking about us. ;)

  1. Sounds so very interesting! I'm new to Ms. Roni Loren's book but I think this book is changing my mind. The interview different from most interviews because it's always the author being interview. In this case, it's the two person who stars in the book that are getting interview! Love it!

  3. I loved all of the other books in this series and can't wait to read Caught Up In You and see where Kelsey and Wyatt's story takes us. It's nice that they were just mere extras in the other books and that we now get to read their story.

  5. I admire how well authors know their characters. The way that Kelsey and Wyatt answered (or avoided) the questions tells me so much about them!

  11. I haven't read any of your books yet, but after reading the blurb and chapter one of Caught Up In You, that will be changing very soon. I love stories about couples who are just pretending and end up falling in love.
