Hello and welcome!
Another of the heroines from the anthology is joining me today. Check out the chat we had!
What is your full name?
Do you have a nickname?
What is one word best describes you?
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I’ve been in two books before Fiery Billionaire, I hope so.
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
One of my own designs, a white sleeveless dress with an asymmetrical neckline and hemline, high low, one of my signature designs.
What makes you laugh out loud?
My brother, Carter Holden’s tattoos. Long story, you’ll have to read HIS book, Stay With Me.
What is your favourite dessert?
American cheesecake. Not as creamy as New York cheesecake, but not as dry as Italian.
What is your favourite drink?
Coffee. And champagne. Not at the same time.
What is your greatest fear?
That my smoking will cause a fire.
What is your favourite colour?
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
A satin night shirt.
What is the perfect romantic date?
Anything so long as it’s not a fundraiser! The cheaper the better. Movie night on the couch always gets me.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Very. Behind the ears.
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I’m trying to quit smoking, so I won’t harp on ‘cigarette related’ favorites. The smell of the ocean outside my parents’ house in Orion Ridge, Rhode Island. It reminds me of home.
When you look at a man what catches your interest?
Do you have somebody in your life now?
Why yes, I do! Theo Markham, a NYC fireman. And he’s hot hot hot. Yes, pun. But also the sweetest sexiest man, I’ve ever laid eyes on.
What is one word best describes him?
Brave. And not because he’s a fireman. He’s dating me. I’m a billionaire and a smoker.
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Always the bridesmaid and never the bride was my motto. But no more! I first appeared in my brother’s book, Stay With Me, the last book in the Mallory Family series. Next, I showed up in Bossy Billionaire as Luke Hart’s fake date, set up by his (now) wife. I guess it worked. I must have made an impression because out of four male billionaires in the Lords of Gotham series, I’m the only female billionaire.
So in my book, there’s a man named Shane Quinlan, he’s Irish with a brogue that will melt hearts and panties. His sister, Sabine snatched up the last Hart brother in Rebel Billionaire, right before my book. Shane has three older brothers. PI’s in the Irish Mafia world. I think they may be next, starting with Shane.
And I’m so glad I’m with Theo because I want to watch this guy Shane fall hard for a woman.
Thank you for chatting with me, Victoria! I am looking forward to your story, also discover all the yummies in your world. Maybe I’ll snag a BBF or two in that world too.
I hope the chat spiked your curiosity, it sure did mine.
Her story, as she mentioned, is Fiery Billionaire, part of the Lords of Gotham series by Deborah Garland, a new author for me. Visiting her website and checking out the books, I will definitely need to get into her worlds.
It started with a slip of the tongue and an innocent lie.
When New York City Firefighter Theo Markham Jr. rescues a bunch of school kids from a fire, he’s plunged into the spotlight. Now, the handsome-as-hell rookie fireman is receiving invitations to dozens of black-tie parties, and hordes of single women are vying to be his date. There’s only so much attention a man can take before giving in. One slip of the tongue with the press has everyone thinking he has a girlfriend. The NYFD brass likes the image of a rookie hero who has a steady girl. They want him to represent NYC’s Bravest at some very public functions, so Theo has to find a girlfriend. Fast.
Billionaire fashion designer Victoria Holden is on her way to runway stardom. She’s determined to prove she’s not just an heiress living off her family’s money, but that she has the talent and drive to make her clothing business an international success. When her first big runway show ends in disaster, she needs some good press. Pretending to date hero firefighter Theo Markham is just the thing to salvage her damaged reputation. She has no intention of getting tied to a party-boy fireman long term.
Can a low-paid firefighter win the heart of a billionaire heiress who can have anyone she wants? She’s fiery and drives him crazy, but she has a spark that he can’t ignore. He’s down to earth and looks down on her money, but not her. There’s no way they can fall for each other, right? After all, whoever heard of a billionaire falling for a fireman, especially in a city where lies can burn a relationship faster than any fire.
Deborah Garland is an Award-Winning author of emotional and funny, steamy romances!
She lives on the beautiful North Shore of Long Island with her very patient husband and their mischievous pug. She had to learn how to make her own Cosmopolitans and right now there’s a bartender who will NEVER see her again. She eats cheap mac and cheese with expensive red wine, her heroes are ALWAYS over six feet tall, and they fall, hard, HARD for the girl.
