Married by Monday: Bewitching Books Tour Stop!


Married by Monday
Catherine Bybee

Book Two in the Weekday Bride Series
Carter Billings:
Sandy blond hair and Hollywood good looks, Carter Billings could have any woman he wants. However, when he makes his bid for the Governor's seat in the state of California, he needs to settle down and become a family man. Eliza, the woman he secretly adores, embodies the perfect amount of spice and passion to suit his marital needs, but she’s not interested in becoming Mrs. Billings. She can't even stand to be in the same room with him.
Eliza Havens:
It’s much easier to drive Carter away than to give into desire. Matching couples is how she earns a living, but getting married isn’t an option. The secrets she carries are too dangerous to entangle anyone else. When her hidden identity and past threaten her future, she’s left with little choice. Carter is quick to offer solutions to both their problems, but saying yes could mean endangering the man she’s growing to love.



Author of New York Times Bestseller, Wife by Wednesday presents, Book Two in the Weekday Bride Series


Excerpt:
He folded his arms over his chest. “I suppose you could say I’m following Blake’s lead. Marriage solves a few fundamental problems in my career path.”
She stared at him full on now, not trying to look away. “Your problems. Not mine.”
“Problems you helped play a role in.” He saw the spark in her eye before she managed her first syllable of defense.
She sat the tea down and placed a hand on the counter. “That’s low, Carter.”
“And true or you’d be the first to tell me I’m wrong. If I had a choice, I’d be married by Monday to help dispel all the media crap created by yours and Gwen’s night on the Texas town. I thought I could come to you and obtain a little bit of cooperation.”
“A little bit of cooperation. Marriage is a tad more than a little bit of anything.” Her voice rose and her knuckles started to grip the counter.
“Yet you earn your living arranging marriages or partnerships on trite reasons less important than mine.” How dare she follow a moral high ground. Maybe she’d forgotten how well versed he was on her and Samantha’s business.
“You forget that our clients have to approve of the relationships we arrange. They have to like the person—”  
He laughed, interrupting her. “Do you really want to pretend we aren’t friends to prove your point?”
Her cheeks grew rosy which he had to admit was a much better than the pasty color she’d been sporting when he walked into the house. He felt the fire burning inside her as she shot daggers with her eyes.
“You’re my best friend’s husband’s friend. If you’re looking for a wife you might peek into your little black book, or whatever it is you use, and draw another name.”
Carter let his arms drop and took two steps closer. The angrier she became, the more his blood churned. His body responded to her outrage, but not in anger. “I don’t want to draw another name.”

Review


I really liked this book, it was fun and entertaining with lots of passion and romance mixed in. The characters were amazing and the pacing was nice! There were some unexpected elements which I really appreciated and some points where I wanted to kill the characters. However it was a remarkable and well written book over all.


recommend this for anyone who over a good romance as long as you are over the age of 18 ;)
My Rating 5/5:




Author Interview


Bajan Rosa: What inspired you to write?
Catherine: I love to read. Romance has always been my genre of choice mainly because I like to know that when I finish the book everyone is alive, well, and living happily ever after. 
Writing is simply a way for me to write books the way I want them to be so I can achieve that happily ever after the way I want. Everyone around us has a life, a story...and with any luck a love story to tell. Creating those stories is an adventure.


Bajan Rosa: Are you fond of any of your characters?

Catherine They are my children. I love them all, even the bad guys. Actually, I love writing the bad guys probably because they can say and or do anything and it's okay. I love writing in a kids POV, but don't see myself writing YA anytime soon. 


Bajan Rosa: Do you see yourself writing for a long time? 

Catherine I honestly don't see a time that I won't write now that I'm where I am in my career. As long as I have readers, I will write. It's that simple. And before you ask...No, I don't see myself 'running out' of ideas for future books. LOL


Bajan Rosa: How much time do you spend writing?

Catherine I write daily. Or at least I try to write daily. I'm always doing something with my writing. Either marketing, blogging, chatting or writing. There is always something to do. 


Bajan Rosa: Any advice for aspiring Authors?

Catherine Yes. Write. The only way to move forward in this business is to write. There aren't any real short cuts in this business. A new author needs to work to make their books worth reading...to learn their craft. That requires time in the chair typing away. 

Bajan Rosa: When is your next scheduled release? 

Catherine My next scheduled release is in October. Not Quite Dating is being released with Montlake Romance. This is the first book in a new series that I'm sure my readers are going to love. 




New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Catherine Bybee has been addicted to romance since her teens. After spending a decade of her life working as an RN in urban emergency rooms, Catherine is now dedicated to writing happily-ever-afters for the world to love.
