Synopsis: Is it possible to expose Chicago’s hottest player—without getting played?
This is the story I've been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.
Mysterious. Privileged. Legendary. His entire life he’s been surrounded by the press as they dig for tidbits to see if his fairytale life is for real or all mirrors and social media lies. Since he hit the scene, his secrets have been his and his alone to keep. And that’s where I come in.
Assigned to investigate Saint and reveal his elusive personality, I’m determined to make him the story that will change my career.
But I never imagined he would change my life. Bit by bit, I start to wonder if I'm the one discovering him...or if he's uncovering me.
What happens when the man they call Saint, makes you want to sin?
Hey Katy! Long time no talk my friend! It’s great to have you on the blog. I’ve missed talking with you and I can’t tell you how excited I am to help celebrate your upcoming title – Manwhore.
So, let’s get started!
Lisa! So happy to be here talking to you right now. Thanks so much for having me over. I've missed you too and I can't wait for you to read Manwhore! I hope you love it like I do. :)
First… can you tell us, in your own words a bit about Manwhore?
Manwhore is the story of a young journalist who puts her heart and body in danger when the exposé she’s writing leads her into the arms of a notorious womanizer. Their romance is an exquisitely slow-burning process that kept me glued to my seat, enjoying every moment!
Many people know your writing from your REAL series and characters, how does this differ new series from that and those characters?
I think Manwhore is a more "mature" side of my writing, even though it's probably the most modern and fun book I've ever written. The story is simpler, but it’s the simplicity that makes the characters come across so well and so powerfully. There aren't fights or guns or rock concerts in Manwhore, so instead, we're in Chicago, in the shoes of a 'normal' girl who catches the eye of a very elusive and powerful man.
What were the hardest and the easiest part in writing this new title?
The hardest part was the beginning. I usually labor over my beginnings a lot. They need to be perfect and sometimes I need to write for a little while to determine where my "best" start is. I started this book initially with a club scene that ends up several chapters behind simply because I realized I was leaping straight into the action and I needed to know more about the heroine and her task first. I still love that club scene so much, though, it's one of my favorites in the book!
If you could ask your two main characters two quick questions for me?
What was their first impression of each other?
Rachel: Malcolm, ohhhh. He's like a storm, and so hot and self-possessed. Electric. I could hardly breathe or think.
Malcolm: She was a mess. Blushing under my stare. Shy but inquisitive. Nervous. And lovely.
And looking back if they had to describe each other in three words, what would those words be?
Rachel: Confident. Relentless. Intense.
Malcolm: Innocent. Responsible. Addictive.
Without giving too much away would you mind sharing with us your favorite line or two from the book?
I have so many! Malcolm isn't a man of many words but whenever he talks, I melt so hard and so does Rachel. I don't want to spoil any of his words so I'll go with two of my favorites from Rachel:
He is Sin Itself...and I feel like an absolute virgin.
To him: "You make my world spin a little faster."
And lastly, since this is the exciting beginning of a new series, can you tell us all, because I know I’m dying to know… what we can look forward to for this series? And what we can look forward to from you in the future?
I'm truly thrilled to share this series. It's modern and exhilarating, the first stories so far focusing on a single couple - Malcolm and Rachel - as they fall in love and try to have a relationship together even though neither of them had 'room' in their lives for that.
Katy, as always it’s a pleasure to have you on my blog. I am really looking forward to reading Manwhore and I hope we get a chance to catch up soon!!! Miss you tons and a HUGE congrats on the new book.
Lisa, thank you so so much for having me over and I definitely look forward to catching up. My warmest hugs and all my gratitude for your time and for inviting us over! XO
