Spotlight on Christy McKellen, One Week with the French Tycoon #Giveaways

This week's Spotlight on Author is on Christy McKellen and her latest release, One Week with the French Tycoon. 





Author bio:

Formerly a Video and Radio Producer, Christy now spends her time writing fun, impassioned and emotive romance with an undercurrent of sexual tension. When she's not writing, she can be found enjoying life with her husband and three children, walking for pleasure and researching other people's deepest secrets and desires.


Christy loves to hear from readers. You can get hold of her at her website www.christymckellen.com




What are a few things we would find on your desk?

Hmm, well I tend to work mostly at the kitchen table because I don’t have an office at home, so crumbs, a cup of tea and a pile of kid’s homework. J

What motivates you to write?

I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer and regularly make up stories in my head to entertain myself, so I guess getting them down on paper (or a computer) was the next natural step. I love sharing my stories with others and feel incredibly privileged that I get to do so for a living.

Share something about yourself no one else knows?

I’m very good at keeping secrets ;-)


What was your favorite scene to write?

I loved writing the scene where Julien is trying help Indigo by buying her some new boots and she’s trying her hardest to resist both the generous offer and him!


Tell us about your book…

One Week with the French Tycoon is a fun, sexual tension-filled romance with a spirited English heroine and a surly-but-sexy French hero, set on the beautiful Amalfi Coast of Italy.

Indigo and Julien are each expecting to holiday alone after dealing with bad breakups but fate intervenes, pushing them into walking the coast path together.

Sparks fly!

 Giveaways! Winners picked from comments! 

I have two copies of the book in a 2-in-1 with the lovely Meg Maxwell to giveaway (I’m happy to post to anywhere in the world). Just leave a comment letting me know about the best place you’ve ever visited on your holidays. I’m always looking for recommendations!

Blurb:

From holiday…to happy-ever-after! 
 
Indigo Hughes spends her life taking care of everyone else. But after she's unceremoniously dumped, she finally puts herself first and books a holiday on the Amalfi Coast. Fine food, stunning views and time alone to heal her heart…bliss! 


Instead, she's thrown together with tycoon Julien Moreaux! He's cynical, sexy and recently divorced—exactly the kind of man she should avoid. But big-hearted Indigo hopes to help Julien find his faith in love again—she just doesn't expect to find her own happy-ever-after in his arms!

    1. Yeah, I guess it's because the kitchen is the heart of the house and even though I often need to work in quiet, having a buzz around me can be really useful too.

  8. Love the sound of this story! May have something to do with the fact my favorite place I've visited is... Well, I'm tempted to say Paris, but I'm going to have to say France because I thoroughly enjoyed every place we went there last year! And SO want to go to Italy!!

    1. I adore France, Robyn, we go there on holiday quite a bit. I went to Italy on my honeymoon, which was a wonderful place to visit and I'm desperate to go back! x

    1. Mostly through necessity, Crystal. I'd love my own office, but it's a bit of a pipe dream at the moment :-)

  16. Hmm... I've never tried writing on my kitchen table before... I think I've used someone else's for the purpose once, though.

    1. It's great if you need a bit of a hubbub around you when you write. Not so great if you need absolute quiet! :-)
