Interview w/ Judi Fennell--best foods ever, sexy men & a little apron inappropriateness!

Big shot movie star Bryan Manley is destined for fame and fortune, not a repeat of his penny-pinching "normal" childhood. But a bet is a bet, so he agrees to play maid for Beth Hamilton—as long as he can use his servitude as research for his next role, and then resume his life in the spotlight.

After her husband’s death and the publicity surrounding it, all Beth needs is a quiet, normal life for herself and her children. She never expected a new Prince Charming to show up at her door, let alone as the new maid. But when the paparazzi follow, Beth is sure of one thing: Bryan has to go.

Then flirtation turns into seduction, and Bryan needs to convince Beth he’s more man than maid—or an actor playing a maid. Because this latest gig as the love of Beth Hamilton’s life just might be the role of a lifetime...

*waves* Mornin' Judi! Welcome to herding cats! I am just loving your Manley men and can't wait to hear a little bit of juicy gossip about your latest...What a Woman Needs!
Thanks so much for having me… and for all your enthusiasm and support all over the internet for this series! I so appreciate it!
No prob! Always fun chatting about great reads :) So. The Manley Maids *rubs hands together* If you had 10 seconds to hook someone on this delectable set of men and new endeavors what would you tell them?
Three hunky guys in maids outfits. Need I say more? ;}
Bwaha. No not at all. That'll so do it! Yums! Alright. Any fun/sexy things about Bryan you can share?
Bryan’s abhorrence of aprons doesn’t extend to the bedroom… 
Heh. Nice. I absolutely LOVE quotes. What was your favorite quote that just made you swoon or had you gigglesnorting or sighing in girly bliss?
This one...
Beth: “I beg your pardon.”

Bryan: She could beg for whatever she wanted and he’d give her every single thing.
That was one of those lines where I just sat back and said, “Did I really just write that?” 
Oh and such a good one! And speaking of a little naughty...If you had 24 hours to spend with either Bryan or Beth who would you pick and what would yall get up to?
Seriously? You’re asking that question? I’m single. Hands down, Bryan. As to what we’d get up to…  Check out Chapter Thirty-three for some ideas…
*nods in approval* Girl. Me. Too! Now, first thing that pops into your head about Bryan? 
The scene where Maggie shares her special kiss that she used to do with her dad with Bryan. I get just as choked up as he does every time I read it. He gets the moment and the fact that he does makes him so incredibly sexy. 
Oh my god. Yeah that totally choked me up! What about Beth? 
I can relate to her. The kids, the animals, the mess, trying to keep it all together. I feel Beth’s breathlessness. 
And their herd of 2 and 4 legged kids?
Considering we just increased the four-legged ones in our house by 100%, I have to say that I love pets. Kids… They’re teenagers. ‘Nuff said.
Bwaha no kids here but I hear ya on the herd babes. They sure make a house a home :) Congrats on the new addtion! Alright how's about couple quickies!

Favorite Man Candy? 
Joe Manganiello
Funniest pet story?
A friend has an African Grey that would sing Just a Gigolo whenever I walked in the room, just like Orwell in book 1, What a Woman Wants. *bwaha oh that is awesome*
Sexiest thing a man can do?
Give me a massage and not want anything in return. And he might actually get something in return…
My favorite food: lobster tail and rib eye with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne.
Annnnd now I want some chocolate covered strawberries! Yum! Okay. I know the last of the Manly brothers-- Liam--is up next (and oh I can't wait!) but me and my friend Sophia from over at Delighted Reader are dying with curiosity. Will Mary-Alice have a book? Any little tidbits you can share?
Yes, Mac gets her book: What a Woman. It’s #4 in the series. A tidbit… 
She left just as she’d entered: a tight little package of tornado, stirring things up in a way no one he’d ever met could.

Jared pinched the bridge of his nose. The grandmothers were nothing if not obvious, and while he hated to hurt their feelings, he wasn’t going to suffer through Mac’s brand of torture long enough to get anyone’s hopes up. When he decided to find someone to settle down with, the decision would be his, not his grandmother’s. And it definitely wouldn’t be some revered high-maintenance pain-in-the-ass princess.

Who blew back through his front door, swirling grass clippings and leaves in behind her. Yeah, she was a cleaning lady. Right.

“You weren’t raised in a barn, Mac.”

She stumbled on the first stair. Jared hid his smile; he hadn’t seen her this flustered since that time he’d had to let her down easy.

Of course, he hadn’t seen her since that time.

“I beg your pardon?”

He’d rather have her beg for something else.

Oh, hell. What was wrong with him? This was Mac. Terror of the tree fort, tagalong extraordinaire, and caller of the shots when her brothers were around.

Well they weren’t around now and this was his house. Okay, his grandmother’s, but still.

“I said that I know for a fact that you weren’t raised in a barn, so would you mind telling me why you left the front door open? Seems to be counterproductive to the cleaning thing you profess to be here about.”

She stormed back into the kitchen, temper in full view.

That was new; anytime she’d wanted her brothers do to something, she’d poured on the honey.

But, damn, she was pretty when she was angry. Green eyes flashed like emeralds beneath bangs so black they could be blue, the rest of her hair tied back in that same ponytail that stretched halfway down her back that she’d worn when she’d been ten, though she sure as hell didn’t look ten now.

“Have I ever told you how to play baseball?” She rammed a finger into his chest.

Jared looked at it, then into her eyes. “There was that pick-up game when I came home from college freshman year—”

Her hand fluttered. “You were going to run over Nicky. He was a third your size. You were too stuck on winning to see what you were going to do. I had to say something.”

“So your point is?”

“I don’t tell you how to do your job; don’t tell me how to do mine. I know how to get this place in shape.”

Jared laughed. “Only you, Mac, could follow an anecdote of how you told me how to do my job with the declaration that you don’t tell me how to do it. Are you getting the irony?”

She glared at him. “Look, for our grandmothers’ sakes, we have to make this work until this house goes up for sale. So you stay out of my way, and I’ll stay out of yours.”

“Is that like the not telling me how to do my job thing?” Okay, he probably shouldn’t tease her, but that’d never stopped him before. She just made it so easy.

And she looked so damn cute when she was angry.

Jared shook his head. No, not cute. Little Mary-Alice Catherine Manley had turned out to be gorgeous. The universe had one hell of a sense of humor.

“Fine. Whatever.” She tossed up her hands and spun around, storming off toward the staircase.

What a view it was.

Jared uncrossed his arms and gripped the counter. These next few weeks ought to be, well, if not interesting, at least they wouldn’t be boring.

Omg. And squeal! I cannot wait to see the two of them. They're gonna be so fun! Thanks so much for coming by Judi and for the awesome teaser!
Thanks for having me and for reading the series!
