OS: Welcome to Andrew Grey, author of Noble Intentions. Thanks for stopping by again Andrew! What can you tell us about your latest book?
I always tend to put the things I like in a story. I want to talk about Daniel as an example. He’s a bit of a mixture of a number of qualities. First off he’s from Texas, living in New York, but he made his money selling high fashion western designed clothing. Then he went on to develop a process where the customer could scan their feet and have a custom designed pair of boots made especially for them. Believe me I’d die to have that in real life. Shoes are always a tough fit for me. And he built a new business around that process, Kick in the Pants. I spent many years in IT and that came through in this story, but I’ll let you all in on a little secret. I love boots. I have a pair and I love to wear them when I can. (The foot thing) So I actually got to put both IT and boots in the same story. So if you want to know things about who I am as a person, read the stories, its all in there in one form or another.
OS: Well, your books are full of wonderful people so I know you must be as well! Good luck on your tour!
Robert Ashton is in for the surprise of a lifetime. His mother, a bit of a rebel, raised him away from the rest of the family, and it’s not until he’s contacted by his lawyer about an inheritance that he learns who he truly is: the new Earl of Hantford. His legacy includes ownership of the historic Ashton Park Estate—which needs repairs Robert cannot afford. He’ll simply do what the nobility has done for centuries when in need of money. He’ll marry it.
Tech wizard Daniel Fabian is wealthy and successful. In fact, he has almost everything—except a title to make him worthy in the eyes of the old-money snobs he went to prep school with. His high school reunion is looming, and he’s determined to attend it as a member of the aristocracy.
That’s where Robert comes in.
Daniel has the money, Robert has the name, and both of them know they can help each other out. But their marriage of convenience has the potential to become a real love match—unless a threat to Daniel’s business ruins everything.
“Daniel, its Valerie at Perfect Mates. I apologize for calling so late, but I found someone I’d like you to meet. He’s in the country for a week on business. And I think he’s someone who might interest you.”
“Oh? Where’s he from?”
“His name is Robert. He’s a barrister from England, and he has a client with business here. This is his first time in the States.” She sounded different than she had in the office, and Daniel couldn’t quite place why. “He’s a new client with us. I’ll text you over a picture of him. I think Robert has the potential to be a match for you. If you’re okay with having dinner, I’ll call in a favor and get you reservations.”
“Tonight? Isn’t that short notice?”
“He’s here for the week. Sometimes you have to be willing to take opportunities when they present themselves. All I’m offering is dinner.”
“Okay,” Daniel agreed. “Is this kind of thing normal?”
“Goodness, no,” Valerie chuckled richly. “But it isn’t often that I get this kind of feeling about clients either. I met with him an hour after I left you, and I got the impression the two of you might be right. Call it intuition or whatever. But I’ve been in this business long enough to not discount this kind of thing.”
Daniel checked his watch. It was still before six, and a lonely evening with his computer and his butt on his fancy leather sofa loomed ahead of him. “All right. I need to go home and change. Make the reservation and I’ll meet Robert.”
