Guest Blog: Vivien Paige

I'm happy to have as my guest today Vivien Paige

Tell us a little about yourself.
Vivien Paige has been eagerly consuming romance novels since her early teens. Strong, dark alpha heroes. Cute, feisty heroines. Combustible, emotional roller-coaster rides to a splendid happy ever after. Perfect! That's what makes her such an awesome wife...well depending on who you ask :) Now she writes her own romance novels, too.

What do like the most and the least about writing?
The least liked part about writing for me is actually getting started, I usually need a gun to my head, or someone needs to threaten to throw away my whole supply of chocolate - that usually works. The most liked part is when I actually write and I become so oblivious to the world around me. It’s a great feeling. It’s just getting there that requires the hard work.

Contemporary  Romance

If there's one thing emotionally unavailable party-princess, Tayla Watkins knows, it’s clothes. Kids? Not so much. But when her foster brother leaves her with a deathbed wish regarding the son he never had a chance to meet, she can’t refuse. 

Armed with a Nannying for Dummies guidebook, all Tayla needs is three weeks at the mansion where the little boy lives to suss out the situation, confirm his well-being then leave without anyone ever knowing who she really is. Totally doable, except she chooses the wrong bed on her first night and faces off with the sexy uncle intent on knocking her off her six-inch heels.

When billionaire adventurist, Jared Miller, discovers his nephew’s sixty-year-old nanny has been replaced with a sparsely clad beauty, his trusted instincts fly off the charts, and so does his intrigue-meter. The glamorous nanny has as many secrets as she does shoes, and he’s determined to shadow her every move to uncover them all.

What’s next on the writing horizon for you?
I’m planning to write Book 2 for the Glamour Nannies – Falling for the Billionaire series called Proud and Dazzling.

Is there anything you want to tell readers?
The Glamour Nannies – Falling for the Billionaire series has one thing in common, a book. What’s a girl to do when she has more knowledge about shoes than she does nannying? She reads a book, of course, but not just any book – Nannying for Dummies by Tasmina Tags, no less! This book is passed from one heroine to the next in my Glamour Nannies series, a guide to help take care of her little charge and by that I mean to keep them as human in color as possible, while working her way into the billionaire’s heart of her choice.  

Excerpt of Hot & Unusual:

“You dropped a speck of something.”

Shocked, she almost stumbled over her own two feet. She spun around. Where’d he come from? Waves of anxiousness rippled through her. Didn’t he have poisonous snakes to save on the other side of the world? But the mere sight of him disintegrated all the unsteady emotions she’d patched back together during her shower, peeling away everything she’d tried to hide under her makeup. Her firm attempt to reseal all her vulnerability failed at the mere sight of him. How on earth am I going to handle him when I keep forgetting to play it cool?

She straightened her spine. Stood still. He needn’t know he gave her heart palpitations. She just required a way around him to lessen his effect on her. But how, when with all the causal arrogance in the world, he held her laundered panties in his hand. She glanced from the tiny wisp of lace to the basket then back again to her panties dangling from his fingers. Did he call her underwear a speck of something?

He closed the distance between them before her gasp at his sudden movement left her lips. Her blood pumped voraciously through her veins. Then he bent down on his haunches to analyze her shoes. Oh really.

“And what are those? Weapons?”

Excuse me, they’re four-inch Manolos, the height of everything trendy at the moment. She set her basket down and slammed her hands onto her hips. “Would you feel less threatened if I wore granny panties and workmen boots?”

 Thanks for being my guest today, Vivien.
