To Have and to Hoax...

Entangled Lovestruck

Wild child lingerie store owner Lucy Hamilton is a happily confirmed bachelorette. As far as she's concerned, men are something best enjoyed in small doses, never to be allowed too close. Then Lucy's mother tells her Aunt Bev that Lucy has eloped and is married--a tiny lie only meant to appease the dying woman...until Aunt Bev miraculously recovers. Now Lucy needs to find a "husband" for an upcoming family wedding, and fast.

Fortunately, Lucy's ridiculously hot, ridiculously straitlaced new accountant Dex Levian is willing to be her stand-in spouse for the weekend. And that's when the trouble really begins. For starters, Dex's "involvement" with a client―no matter how irresistible―might ruin a merger he hopes will make his career. Worse still, the chemistry between Dex and Lucy is more than convincing―it's sizzling. But for Lucy, falling for her fake new husband is the most dangerous thing she can do...

READ a little . . .
Lucy folded her arms over her chest. “We can’t ask him to be my fake husband. First of all, I haven’t agreed to play this game. Secondly, Dex is my accountant, not my boyfriend. I hardly know him outside our professional dealings. And I just met him in person for the first time five minutes ago!”
“Let’s just ask him,” her mom said. “See if he’d even consider it.”
Through the door, Dex coughed loudly, as if to remind them he was still waiting.
Lucy motioned toward the sound. “Come on. We can’t leave him out there. He’s an important, busy man. I’m sure he has numbers to crunch or something.” Swallowing hard, she pulled the door back open and headed to the sales floor. And found Dex examining a pair of red lacy crotch-less panties. He didn’t look in the least confused by them, which sometimes happened to the more clueless men who came in to buy something for their girlfriends or wives.
His gaze skimmed over her body so fast she wasn’t really sure she’d seen it. Was he imagining her in those panties?
A warm flush started at her ears and worked its way down to her throat and neck.
With a barely concealed amused expression on his face, he returned the underwear to the display table. “Everything okay?”
Mom went over to him. “I…we…Lucy has a question for you.” Placing a palm in the middle of Lucy’s back, she shoved her forward. Lucy stumbled, righting herself just before she slammed into Dex’s broad chest.

A slow, sexy grin settled on his lips. “Something you want to ask me?”

ANGI: How often to you get lost in a story?
WYNTER: Not as often as I’d like anymore! When my husband, who is in law enforcement, used to work nights and my kids were small, I had loads of reading time. But now hubby is on days and the kids are in college. My alone time is nearly non-existent, so there’s no more slipping away to read. However, I do reserve my daily stationary bike session for some Kindle time ;-)

ANGI: What’s the first book you remember reading? 
WYNTER: A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I fell in love with the story—at first. Until poor Sara was left destitute. But since it all worked out in the end, I forgave the author for making me cry in the middle. I still adore that book.

ANGI: What do you like about the hero of your book?
WYNTER: Despite being a CPA, Dex is to-die-for sexy! He protects those he cares about and he never gives up on Lucy.

ANGI: Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
WYNTER: Definitely Fairy Tale. I’ve always been one to swoon over Cinderella’s or Snow White’s prince, much to my husband’s dismay. (He’s a huge Action Adventure fan). He doesn’t mind the swooning, but he’d rather it be over Hans Solo or some dude wielding a very large caliber gun!

ANGI: What was the first story you remember writing?
WYNTER: It’s a little embarrassing, and a little funny at the same time. I was about nine years old and angry with my mother for something I can’t remember. I had a school assignment to write a one-page story, so I wrote one about a very cruel mother duck getting her comeuppance. My teacher apparently thought my work was either good enough or humorous enough to show my mother during the next parent-teacher conference. Thankfully, my parents were more amused than mad. And a writer was born!
ANGI: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
WYNTER: I’m a Mel Brooks fan, and my all-time favorite is Young Frankenstein. I think I’ve watched that one about a dozen times. It never gets old, and never fails to lift my mood.

ANGI: Who’s your favorite villain?
WYNTER: I’ve always loved Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. She’s so evil and dark and powerful. Honestly, I always rooted for her. I was thrilled when the movie starring Angelina Jolie recently came out and portrayed her much more sympathetically, although she did lose a bit of her villainous appeal.

ANGI: What is your biggest vice?
WYNTER: Boy, I’m glad you said biggest, because if I had to list them all, we’d be here all day. I have a serious addiction to ice coffee. The problem is so bad that I now buy the stuff in half gallon cartons—four at a time. I’m considering starting a support group.

ANGI: How is it working with hot guys and sexy women all day?

WYNTER: Gee, it’s really tough. When I worked in ‘the real world’ before I became a writer, I had to deal with irate clients and be away from home long hours. It’s so difficult to make that long commute into my home office wearing my pj’s and to fire up my imagination. Conjuring all those sexy men and women and manipulating them into all sorts of interesting scenarios is just brutal! I really miss that work-a-day world. NOT!
