Today is a special day. My good friend Lori Wilde’s latest book, Somebody to Love, releases today and she’s here to tell us a little about it! I’ve been very excited about this one, and to celebrate I’ll be giving away TEN copies to some lucky commenters, so stick around!
So, Lori, tell us a little about your hero in Somebody to Love, Jericho Chance.
Jericho is a cowboy archeologist specializing in the American west. He’s long and tall and dark with Native American roots. And he’s falling in love with his best friend, Zoey McCleary
I hear a rumor that Jericho wasn’t always his name. Why did you change it?
When I turned in the synopsis, his name was Chance Minton, but as I started writing the book, I kept putting his name down as Jericho. So I changed his name to Jericho Chance, but forget to tell my editor. When she showed me the back cover copy, I read it and thought, “Who’s Chance MInton?” I’d forgotten that had been Jericho’s original name. Clearly, he wanted to be a Jericho.
Give us three words to describe your heroine, Zoey.
Free-spirited, fun-loving and passionate.
What was your favorite scene to write?
The scene where Jericho realizes he’s in love with Zoey, but she’s still clueless about her feelings for him.
What is something about Lori Wilde that the readers may be surprised to know?
Much like Jericho and Zoey did when they were children, I once tried to dig a hole to China in my family’s backyard.
LOL! Do you have a New Year’s Resolution?
To be more mindful. I’m starting to focus more on the moment, less on the future or the past, and I intend to continue that journey into 2014. Ways I plan to accomplish that: 1) Daily yoga practice. 2) Going back to the gratitude journal I started years ago. 3) Becoming more aware of what I’m feeling, but not allowing those feelings to overcome me. 4) Listen to music more often. 5) Take time out to just breathe.
Those are wonderful resolutions that we could all benefit from. Now, tell us more about Somebody to Love and where to find it…
Sexy cowboy-scholar Jericho Chance always knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. And after sauntering back home to Cupid, he’s shocked to discover that he wants Zoe McCleary. After years from home, he takes one new look at his bubbly best friend, with her lightning smarts and luscious body, and it hits him like a bolt: she’s his somebody to love and he’s not leaving town again without her.
Settling down always seemed like a time waster to Zoe, a man magnet with a trail of broken hearts behind her. She’s not meant to settle down—but how can she resist someone as persuasive as Jericho? There’s no way they can ignore the explosive chemistry seething between them . . . even if it means risking their friendship . . .
