BTBTours Inara Scott Falling For Mr. Wrong Author Spotlight & Giveaway!!

Hello!  I'd like to welcome everyone to my stop on the Buy The Book Tours Inara Scott Falling For Mr. Wrong Author Spotlight guest post.

Is Fatherhood the New Sexy?
Ross Bencher, the hero of my latest book, is a single father of three kids, and he’s a great dad. He loves his kids, but he also knows how to put his foot down when his eldest is being mouthy and snarky. He’s actually got a great relationship with his ex-wife. They share custody because they believe that’s best for the kids. When his ex wife get a dream job in a new city, he moves too, just so his family won’t be split up. And when his ex is asked to go to China for a month, he steps up and moves into their house so the kids’ lives won’t be disrupted.

I worried a little, when I wrote about Ross, that readers wouldn’t fall in love with him the same way I did. After all, he’s not the traditional single, inaccessible bachelor billionaire, like his brother Brit (the hero of the first Bencher family book, Rules of Negotiation). His flaws has to come with his divorce, which has made it difficult for him to open himself up to love and risk. He’s got it in his head that the only woman he can be with is some kind of modern day Betty Crocker, and I’m sure we can all imagine what a comeuppance he’s going to get with that attitude!

But then I started hearing from readers that they were falling, hard, for Ross. And I realized that part of what worried me—the fact that he was a dad—was part of his appeal.

It made me wonder—is fatherhood the new sexy? There are a lot of women out there looking for love and family, and I can’t help but think that a man who knows how to care for his family is a pretty attractive thing. He’s a fierce protector and someone who would sacrifice just about anything for the people he loves. He’s a strong, tough, alpha male, but one who also knows what it means to take care of others.

Sounds pretty darn sexy to me.

Looking for Mrs. Right…

Single father of three, Ross Bencher, knows the kind of woman he wants: someone predictable, reliable, and safe, who can give his kids the security they deserve. Someone entirely different from high-altitude mountaineer Kelsey. Kelsey bewitches him with her long legs and wild passion and is about as far from his ideal as a woman can get, but try telling that to his body. Or his heart…

Falling for Mr. Wrong…

When Kelsey agreed to fill in as a temporary nanny for her best friend’s agency before a big climbing expedition, she had no idea she’d be working for drop-dead sexy Ross Bencher, a man she can’t seem to keep her hands off. She knows if she wants to bring herself—and her father—back alive from the Himalayan Mountains, she can’t afford second-guessing, attachments, or distractions. But Ross’s blue eyes and strong hands leave her gasping…and questioning everything she’s ever known about love…

Excerpt #4
“So you’re telling me after your divorce you made some kind of inner pledge to only date Donna Reed?”

“Basically, yes.”

“And then you slept with me.”

He grinned, and the mood unexpectedly lightened. “Those were my requirements for dating. Lucky for me, we never went on a date.”

Unwittingly, Kelsey felt some of the tension ease from her body. It was really unfair that Ross’s smile was so warm it acted on her nerves like a damn tranquilizer. “I think I understand. You think if you sleep with me again, we’re dating. And that would mess up the whole personal vow thing.”

He paused for a moment, and then shrugged, somewhat sheepishly. “Something like that.”

“But wait,” she said, holding up one palm. “You’re jumping to a lot of conclusions, aren’t you?”

“What do you mean?”

“You’re assuming that I want to date you.” She tapped one finger in the middle of his chest. “Look at this from my perspective. You’ve got three kids and you live out here in the land of suburbia, with three-car garages and trips to the grocery store every other day to buy more juice boxes. Do you really think this is what I want?”

He had the humility to look slightly ashamed. “I hadn’t really thought about it that way.”

Throwing aside all caution and reason, Kelsey wrapped her arms around his neck. She could hardly believe she was touching him, but the simmering attraction between them had taken over, and she could no longer fight it. “Listen, tough guy. I don’t want to date you any more than you want to date me. And I’d appreciate it very much if you’d keep your judgment about my life and my choices to yourself.”

“But?” He lowered his face an inch, bringing their lips just heartbeats apart.

“But I would like to sleep with you again.”

He let her make the rules…

NYC’s most eligible bachelor, Brit Bencher, is also known as The Slayer for his reputation in the boardroom…and the bedroom. And he’ll do anything to take care of his family, even seduce high-powered corporate attorney Tori Anderson in the hopes of getting her to reveal confidential information about one of her clients. But for the first time in his life, he finds he’s falling for a woman.

…and then he started to break them.

After juggling the demands of her career and the stress of caring for her ailing mother, Tori Anderson doesn’t have time for relationships—but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to feel like a woman. When Brit offers a no-strings attached fling, it sounds like exactly what she needs. But what will she do when Brit decides he won’t take “one night stand” for an answer? When Tori uncovers his lies, will he lose his chance with her forever?

Is she his worst nightmare…

No relationships, that’s billionaire Garth Solen’s rule–especially not with a woman like his new employee Melissa Bencher, who thinks with her heart and not her head. But all bets are off when Melissa’s attempt to make her jerk ex-boyfriend jealous by suggesting that she’s dating Garth. To protect his ailing grandmother, he is forced to play the part of Melissa’s adoring fiancé.

…or a dream come true?

Melissa couldn’t begin to imagine all the trouble one impulsive act could cause. Now she’s trying on rings and posing for the paparazzi with her gorgeous boss. The game is clear: for one month, they play the part of an engaged couple, and then they part ways. No emotions. No entanglements. But when it comes to matters of the heart, Melissa’s never been good at following the rules…
