Talking with Monica Corwin and Win with Breathless Press

Remember to enter the rafflecopter at the end of the post to be in the running with some great prizes from Breathless Press.

Now let's talk with author Monica Corwin....

Can you please tell us about your latest/upcoming book(s)?
I always seem to have upcoming books but the one I think you are referring to is You May Kiss the Bride. (I had three releases this month) It's about a woman who is left at the altar and rebounds like a champ.

How did you come with the idea for this story?
I considered what it would be like to be left at the altar and what I would do in that situation. I'd hope I'd handle it as well as my heroine at least.

Who is your ultimate "book boy/girlfriend"? You know, that hottie you read about and drool over.
My book boyfriend…I've had SO many over the years…Asher (from LKH Anita Blake series), Valek (from Maria Snyder's Study Series), King Arthur from now until forever. I've been in love with every incarnation of him since I was 14.

Who is your Celebrity crush? And what would you do if you ever meet them?
Ha I have so many celebrity crushes. My main one I have to say is Benedict Cumberbatch. He is just the perfect mix of sex appeal and intellect. I'd probably try not to fawn over him and speak to him like a human so he might want to see me again. Also, I'd be squealing on the inside.

If you could collaborate with another author on a secret project, who would you pick to work with and why?
Karen Harbaugh times 1000. She is an amazing writer and has some a cool imagination. I think we would mesh well during the process. If you haven't read her vampire historical fiction Night Fires (DO IT) it's one of my favourite books.

About 'You May Kiss the Bride'

Helena Banks and Alex Parker are meant to be...if they can get past the secrets, lies, corporate espionage.

Helena Banks has the perfect life. Well, she thought she did until her perfect fiancé left her in the limo outside her perfect wedding. Like any strong woman she rallied with the help of one super sexy limo driver. But is he really who he says he is?
Alex Parker never wanted a complicated life. He lives for his work and that had always been enough. When fate drops a damsel in distress on his radar he realizes he's not content after all.
But Alex has a that will turn Helena's perfect life even more upside down. Can she handle it, or him?

Teaser Excerpt:

A quiet knock sounded at the door, and Alex went to sign for the food without me even making a move to get up. The aroma of melted cheese hit me full force. I surged to my feet, ready to make a beeline for the tray when the alcohol caught up to me and I wobbled, about to keel over. Alex had nowhere near my level of intoxication and caught me smoothly. He could do nothing but help buffer the fall with his arms.
We both landed on the plush faux fur in a tangle of limbs. The silk of my outfit did little to disguise any part of me, and when we both stilled, he was laying in the curve my open thighs created. Alex pushed up on his arms, removing his comforting weight off my chest, but made no move to get up.
Those green eyes ensnared me, and I did the thing I had been dying to do since I watched his lips wrap around the bottle earlier. They were just as soft as I imagined and tasted like lemon and beer. He didn't respond at first, but when I probed the seam of his mouth with my tongue, it felt like an electric current shot through both of us. He wrapped one arm around my back, and the other hand tangled in the mass of curls at the nape of my neck. Effortlessly he pulled me into his body while pressing his hips into mine.
Not even a Disney kiss could have been as equally magical. His tongue traced mine with a demanding edge I savored as small currents of need sparked from the tips of my fingers all the way to my toes. I would have stayed there for hours if the sound of the door lock opening to a keycard hadn't broken the spell between us. We both looked up just in time to register the shocked face of my former fiancé.
