I just finished Seven-Night Stand last night. If you’re a fan of Entangled Publishing's Indulgence can’t miss line of contemporary romances, then you’re going to like this one. I really enjoyed this couple and Vivvy in particular. She’s no nonsense and very comfortable in her own skin. That makes for some crackling chemistry between her and Nate.
As part of Seven-Night Stand the heroine, Vivvy, is trying to convince Nate, the hero, to do a reality show. Something along the line of "Pawn Stars" or "Cake Boss" (in that the core of the show is a business and the people who run it). If you've ever watched a show like that, you know they often do individual interviews with the participants.
I thought it might be fun to put Vivvy in the interviewer's seat to give everyone a chance to get to know Nate a little better.
Vivvy: Nate, can you tell us a little about yourself.
Nate: I'm a pretty simple guy. I like planes. I run an airport in the middle of Kansas. I used to enjoy sleeping in...until you came along.
Vivvy: We went over this. I'm not Vivvy right now. I'm just an unknown interviewer.
Nate: Then stop giving me that look.
Vivvy: What look?
Nate: The I-want-to-get-you-nak---
Vivvy: Moving on to the next question. What's a typical day like at Harrington Airfield?
Nate: The words "typical" and "Harrington Airfield" do not belong in the same sentence together.
Vivvy: You are trying to make this difficult, aren't you?
Vivvy: What are your three best traits?
Nate: I don't know, Viv, what do you think are my three best traits?
Vivvy: I'd say you're loyal, hard working, and kind.
Nate: Those weren't the kinds of things I was hoping for.
Vivvy: I'm aware. Now, what do you think are your biggest faults?
Nate: This isn't a job interview. These questions are idiotic.
Vivvy: Oh, really? And what questions should I be asking you?
Nate: How to fix an altimeter?
Vivvy: Somehow I don't think that'll fascinate your future adoring public.
Nate: I don't really care about any future adoring public. I've got you. All the adoring public I need.
Vivvy: You have completely missed the whole purpose of this interview.
Vivvy: You're still going to make really excellent TV. No matter how difficult you are.
Nate: So you keep telling me. You've also promised to make it worth my while.
Vivvy: All right. Interview over. I'll only participate in an exercise of futility for so long.
Nate: I can think of better ways to exercise.
Vivvy: Well, you've got me there. Let's go.
About Nicole: I grew up with my nose in a book and a dream of becoming a writer. Luckily, after a few failed career choices, a husband, and two kids, I get to pursue that dream.
I write down-to-earth contemporary romance over the backdrop of America’s flyover states for Entangled Indulgence and Samhain Publishing.
I live in Missouri with my husband and two young sons, and write my novels one baby’s nap at a time. I’m slightly (okay, totally) addicted to Twitter (nicolethelm), the St. Louis Cardinals, and someday owning a barn.

About Seven Night Stand:
Reality TV scout Vivvy Marsh loves her job, but she'll lose it if she doesn’t find a hit. When she’s sent to Kansas to scout a show, it looks like a bust...until she meets sexy pilot, Nate Harrington. His family would make the perfect show to save her career.
Nate can’t deny his attraction to Vivvy, but no way can he let this show take off. The Harrington family is riddled with secrets, and she wants it all out in the open. For the next seven days, he’s going to stop at nothing to keep her out of his family's business, even if it means keeping her distracted in his bedroom.
