Are you reading Danica Favorite? Well, you should be !

I'm so happy to have one of my "Favorite" people here today. Danica will probably kill me for using this picture, but this is what I love about her. She's always ready to have fun. This picture is from the 2013 Harlequin Pajama party. 

THE NANNY’S LITTLE MATCHMAKERS

A Wife for Their Papa 

Polly MacDonald intends to tame Mitch Taylor's five mischievous children, even though every other nanny has fled. She needs this job—and Mitch's brood sorely needs affection. Perhaps their widowed papa does, too. But when the children begin scheming to make her their new mother, Polly must resist. She's seen too many bad marriages to want one of her own. 

Mitch has come to Leadville, Colorado, to escape a scandal, not find a wife. After the disaster of his first marriage, he's sure he isn't husband material. Though Polly's tender care is working wonders with his children, Mitch knows he should keep his feelings to himself. But can two wary hearts deny the dearest wish of five eager matchmakers?


A self-professed crazy chicken lady, DANICA FAVORITE loves the adventure of living a creative life. She and her family recently moved in to their dream home in the mountains above Denver, Colorado. Danica loves to explore the depths of human nature and follow people on the journey to happily ever after. Though the journey is often bumpy, those bumps are what refine imperfect characters as they live the life God created them for. Oops, that just spoiled the ending of all of Danica’s stories. Then again, getting there is all the fun.


GETTING TO KNOW DANICA
 ANGI: How often do you get lost in a story?
DANICA: Great question, because I like to read as often as possible, but to me, getting lost in a story is when you get so engrossed in reading something that you forget about everything else. Like the time recently when I burned dinner because I picked up a book and kept needing to read the next page. That doesn’t happen very often for me, but every once and a while, it does, and I love that feeling. Maybe a few times a year.

ANGI: Hugh Jackman or Chris Pine?
DANICA: Hugh Jackman!

ANGI: What's your most favorite thing to do in your state?
DANICA: I love Colorado, which is why I’ve set all my books there. I absolutely love the mountains, so I like to go out and enjoy them, though not as much as I would like. Closely tied in to that (and a lot of the inspiration for my books) is the history. I’m a big history nerd, so I like to visit all the historical sites and museums.

ANGI: What’s your favorite meal?
DANICA: The older I get, the more it varies, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is this: anything someone else cooks! Okay, it has to taste good, but I’m not picky. Oh, and someone else needs to clean up too. J

ANGI: What do you like about the hero of your book?
DANICA: I like that Mitch sees family not just about blood, but about choosing to love the people God brings into his life however they come. He’s truly an honorable man, and I love how deeply he gives his heart in a situation that would make many angry and bitter.

ANGI: Would you rather be in a Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
DANICA: Fairy Tale. I’m not in good enough shape for Action Adventure. I’d die in the first five minutes.

ANGI: What’s your favorite rerun on television?
DANICA: I don’t get television where I live, so it’s all about NetFlix. So we tend to binge-watch and move on. We just finished The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and I loved it. Looking forward to the next season.

ANGI: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
DANICA: My Fair Lady.

ANGI: What drinks or snacks are always on your desk when you’re writing?
DANICA: Tea! I’m a big tea lover.

ANGI: Hiking Boots or Dancing Heels?
DANICA: Actually, both. I love to hike and dance, and I do both as often as I can. Well, okay, I do prefer boots over heels. I hate wearing heels.

ANGI: Are you a Star Wars fan? Favorite thing about the reboot?
DANICA: This might make me a horrible person, but I’m actually not a fan. I’m kind of impatient and lazy when it comes to waiting for movies to come out, so by the time each one comes out, I forgot what the last ones were about and I didn’t like them enough to want to re-watch. I don’t watch much TV and movies, so it has to either be really good or really mindless for me to watch more than once.

ANGI’S GOTTA ASK: What’s one thing from your bucket list?
DANICA’s GOTTA ANSWER:  Bucket list questions are weird to me, mostly because I feel like I’m already living my bucket list. A few years ago, I decided it was silly to wait to do all the things I wanted to do in life until it was almost too late. So we moved to the mountains, bought our dream home (it will be eventually, it’s a fixer upper), and we’re working on living that dream. Pretty much everything left on my bucket list is travel, and the only thing holding me back on that is money (but I’m working on it!). I want to go to Tahiti SO BAD!! I blame Harlequin for this, because growing up, I read a lot of books set in exotic places, and that gave me the travel bug. I don’t remember specifically anything about Tahiti, but lots of tropical islands. To me, Tahiti is the epitome of what I think a tropical island experience would be.
