Spotlight On: Niecey Roy

I'm thrilled to welcome fellow Wild Rose Press author Niecey Roy to my blog today. Welcome, Niecey, can you tell us a little about yourself? 

I’m a romantic comedy flick junkie. I prefer to be barefoot, but if I have to wear shoes, I will almost always choose a pair of cute heels. I prefer summer over winter (I hate being cold). If I had the metabolism of my before-kids-days, I’d eat pizza three times a week. If I’m not craving pizza, I’m craving Asian food. Oh, and I’m obsessed with learning how to plant a successful garden, but I really have no idea what I’m doing. So far, I’ve only killed roses, though. And roses are the one thing I really, really want in my yard!

Tell us about Fender Bender Blues and where we can find it. 

Right now you can get Fender Bender Blues eBook FREE on Amazon!!!

The print book is available for purchase at Amazon and The Wild Rose Press.

Here’s the blurb:

Her life took a wrong turn. He's driven by success. They didn't count on crashing into love... 

Rachel Bennett loved her job until the day she finds herself doubting her choices. Now she's hunting for a new career, but starting over isn't easy. Her plan is simple—no distractions until she finds her dream job. She didn't plan on fate throwing her a curveball in the form of a fender bender with a sexy guy in an expensive suit.

Craig Larsen is a wealthy, successful business owner with a plan of his own: survive his current PR nightmare and stay away from his overly determined ex-girlfriend. His need for control and personal success is turned upside down when he meets Rach, a sassy redhead who can't drive.

Soon they find themselves battling with Rach's grumpy old neighbor, toilet-papering the trees of a high school nemesis, and fighting over the last slice of pizza. Can two very different people plus one fender bender equal a chance at forever?

"Classic cars, garden gnomes, and steamy romance? My kind of book!"
~Bestselling Author Kate Perry 

Describe your writing in three words.

Sexy smooches and happily-ever-afters…(just don’t count “and” ha!)

What was your first reaction when you got a glimpse of your cover art?

I was so happy with it. It was the most exciting, intense feeling of “it’s real” that I’ve ever had. Well, at that moment, it was. The day I held the print book of Fender Bender Blues in my hand is now officially the most exciting, intense feeling of “it’s real” I’ve ever had!

What is something readers would be surprised to learn about you? 

I have stage fright. Yes, around people who know me personally, I almost never shut up. But get me in a room full of people I don’t know and stick a mic in my hands, I’m a mess. My hands get all clammy, my knees go weak…and I stutter and say dumb things. Ha!

Where can we find you on the web?

 “Now what?”

“Nothing.”Rach sniffed.

Craig shifted to eye her warily. “Since when do you answer me with single words?”

“Since I decided I’m not talking to you,” she answered with a shrug, crumpling up the white paper wrapper from her sub.

Craig leaned his face in close to her neck and enjoyed the startled jerk of her shoulders. Her eyes opened wide in surprise. His breath shifted a few strands of hair at the nape of her neck as he whispered, “Why, because you want me?”

“You’re incorrigible,” she said, breathless, her cheeks flushed.

She’s enjoying this. The thought pleased him. Rach was on her back beside him now, her eyes closed. He glanced around the park to see if anyone was watching. No one was. He could swoop in for a kiss and no one would catch him. No one would care, he told himself. She won’t mind… 

“I can feel you staring.”

Craig smiled down at her. “So what.”

She peeked at him with one green eye. “So stop it.”

“And if I don’t?”

Maybe she’d tackle him, push him down on the blanket and…

She didn’t. She promptly closed her eye and went back to pretending indifference. “I’ll hit you, that’s what.”

“Not if I do this, you won’t.”

He’d only meant it to be a short kiss, but the pleasure of touching his lips to hers kept him there longer. Her tongue was velvet soft and warm against his and the slow mating of their mouths quickened his heartbeat even as he told himself, It’s no big deal, just a kiss.

She nipped his bottom lip and sent heat sliding through his body. The woman could kiss.

She whispered soft against his lips, “Now why don’t you admit that it’s you who wants me.”

Hehe I can talk all day, but put me in front of people and I'll usually NOT look anyone in the eye and may close mine for the illusion of aloneness. :) Loved the interview and can't wait to read the book. (I'm reading Christine Warner's Some Like it in Handcuffs now.)

I have Some Like It In Handcuffs, too! I am hoping to take a few weeks off from writing once this WIP is finished so that I can catch up on all the good titles I have on my Kindle App and on my desk!
