Casting Call with Kieran Kramer + Giveaway

When we ask authors that question of who they are, we include 'international woman of mystery'. Most wish that they were and well, we like to think that Kieran Kramer is one or nearly one. Like totally legit. She did after all work for the CIA. How awesome is that?! Kieran celebrated our first annual December Joyathon with us and certainly keeps us laughing as we read her books. Kati thoroughly enjoyed If You Give A Girl A Viscount and Cloudy With A Chance of Marriage. Jamie got to meet her in person last at WORD in Brooklyn and Kati's got meeting Kieran on her bucket list for this year.

WELCOME BACK TO THE BLOG KIERAN!!!

Meet Kieran:
Double Rita-finalist and USA Today bestseller Kieran Kramer is the author of the lighthearted Regency historical romance series, The Impossible Bachelors, published by St. Martin's Press. She recently signed a six-book contract with St. Martin's for another Regency series called The House of Brady, premiering in 2012. A former CIA employee, journalist, and English teacher, Kieran's also a game show veteran, karaoke enthusiast, and general adventurer. Without doubt her greatest adventure, which she's taken hand-in-hand with her husband of 23 years, has been mothering their three children.

Colin Egglesfield would play Charlie Thorpe, Viscount Lumley, in If You Give a Girl a Viscount. Colin was the hottie in the movie Something Borrowed (and an almost dead ringer for Tom Cruise).

Adorable Charlie Thorpe is the last of my Impossible Bachelors. He’s the wealthiest of the lot, and he’s become disillusioned with women. They’re all after his money. Not only that, he’s losing confidence in himself—money has gotten him out of every scrape he’s ever been in. He’s almost forgotten how to rely on his own wits.

So on the advice of his three best friends, the other Impossible Bachelors--Harry, Nicholas, and Stephen--he decides to try living without any money for a while. And it’s then that Charlie meets Daisy Montgomery, who at the beginning of the story wants nothing more than…

You guessed it—his money!

Oh, my. Do sparks ever fly, especially when some kisses are exchanged and money becomes the last thing on either of their minds!

Daisy would be played by Amanda Seyfried. She was the actress in Mean GirlsDear John, and Red Riding Hood. I chose her because she has wide-spaced eyes and an almost ethereal, innocent look. She also happens to be blonde, like my character Daisy, and is a perfect foil for dark-haired Colin, who’d play Charlie.

All the single ladies want him.
If life were a fairy tale, Daisy Montgomery’s stepmother and two stepsisters would surely be cast in the wicked roles. For years, they’ve made life miserable for Daisy. But when she discovers she has a godmother, she’s determined to ask her for help. Little did Daisy expect her godmother to play matchmaker with her very own grandson—who happens to be a viscount!

Is he ready to put a ring on it?
A freewheeling playboy, Charles Thorpe, Viscount Lumley, is bored with his wealth-seeking female admirers. Not only that, he’s been cut off from the family coffers. One day, on a bet, he rids himself of what little money he has left in his pockets and vows to solve problems using his wits alone. But when the Impossible Bachelor is confronted with Daisy’s plan to save her castle, the payoff is more than he could have bargained for. Sometimes, if you give a girl a viscount, you just might find love….
