It’s my pleasure today to join the “Meet My Character” blog tour. The incredible Stacy Reid invited me, and if you don’t know her work it’s past time you check her out. Her new release, THE IRRESISTIBLE MISS PEPPIWELL is irresistible indeed! Here’s a bit more about Stacy:
STACY REID is an avid reader of novels with a deep passion for writing. She especially loves romance and adores writing about people falling in love. Stacy lives a lot in the worlds she creates and actively speaks to her characters (out loud). She has a warrior way, never give up on her dreams. When Stacy is not writing, she spends a copious amount of time drooling over Rick Grimes from Walking Dead, watching Japanese anime and playing video games with her love, Dusean Nelson.
And courtesy of Ms. Reid’s invitation to join the hop, today you’re going to get to know Knox Hamilton, the yummy hero from THE MARRIAGE AGENDA, my new release from Entangled Indulgence.
MEET MY CHARACTER
Knox Hamilton (that’s him on the cover!) is the first son of a third generation political dynasty. His father is an ass. When the elder Hamilton steps down after becoming mired in personal scandal, Knox aims to win the Senate seat his father vacated, but he won’t win with his playboy reputation. The solution? Find a wife. But Knox won’t have any woman…he wants Chloe Lochlan, so he makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
THE BACKDROP FOR THE STORY?
Although beltway politics serve as a catalyst for the story, the majority of the book focuses on the relationship between the characters. More often than not, hilarity ensues. (Yes, even during the sex.)
WHAT DRIVES KNOX?
Following his father’s, shall we say, indiscretions, Knox wants to restore honor to his family name, and though he doesn’t quite admit it, he wants his father to be proud of him. Knox knows it won’t happen, but he’s driven by it all the same. As third generation political royalty (think the Kennedys) he won’t have the chance to make a name for himself in the traditional sense, but on a personal level there is a desire to prove he’s a good, honorable man. He wants to protect his grandfather’s legacy while carving out his own place in the world.
WHAT THWARTS HIS PLAN?
In order to win the favor of his conservative constituents, Knox needs a wife. He doesn’t want just anyone, though…he wants a woman with whom he can see spending his life: his ex-girlfriend, Chloe, who just happens to be a beltway reporter. He woos her with the promise of the access she needs to nail a big headline and cement her own career, never dreaming that when she got her story, it would absolutely wreck him. To borrow a line from the blurb, When the truth she uncovers threatens to destroy the man she still loves, will she bury the story…or his career?
