Interview with Cindi Myers, Author of The Wedding Gamble

 

 

Please welcome Cindi Myers to the virtual offices this morning! She’s here to celebrate the release of her latest Indulge Romance, The Wedding Gamble.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Cindi Myers] One of those quiet girls you have to watch out for–loves chocolate, dogs and smart men.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about The Wedding Gamble?

[Cindi Myers] The Wedding Gamble is a romantic romp that looks at what happens when the quiet "good" girl hooks up with a sexy undercover FBI agent in the ultimate fantasy land — Vegas. Laura agrees to marry David in a quickie Vegas wedding in order to save him from a couple of mafia hit men, but she sticks around for the adventure of the lifetime — and to teach a macho loner that he doesn’t have to be lonely anymore. It’s a fun, fast-paced and sexy story.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Cindi Myers] I love Marriage of Convenience stories, but they’re tough to pull off in a contemporary story. But I thought a quickie Vegas wedding might work, so I started playing around with the idea — what kind of people would end up in that situation and why? I decided that a "good girl" — someone who was used to looking after others and helping others — could be talked into such a wedding for a good reason — for example, to save someone’s life. From there I had to have a man whose life needed saving — from there my undercover FBI agent, David, was born.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Laura?

[Cindi Myers] responsible, passionate, lonely

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If David had a theme song, what would it be?

[Cindi Myers] Hmm — that’s a tough one. But I’m going to go with "The Loner" by Three Dog Night — http://www.songlyrics.com/three-dog-night/the-loner-lyrics/

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Laura is never without.

[Cindi Myers] Her purse. She feels naked without it and all the things in it — from cough drops to postage stamps to her phone.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!

About the book:

Preschool teacher Laura Nichols is celebrating her birthday and sister’s bachelorette party in Vegas. Being in Sin City is thrilling and she intends on tapping in to her wild side. Laura can’t resist the added excitement that comes with saying yes when a hunky man off the street proposes…

FBI agent David Abruzzo has been working undercover as a thug to bring down the Zacolli crime family, but his cover depends on convincing the mob he came to Vegas for a quickie wedding. If they catch on to his plan, his cover’s blown, and he’s as good as dead.

Over the course of 48 hours, David and Laura use rollercoasters, glowing condoms, and exotic male dancers to stay alive and bring the crime family down. But it will take more than Lady Luck, one night of passion, and a little Vegas magic to turn their fake marriage into something real.
