There is fiction, and there is real life, and when the two come together-- these days--, it is called ‘reality TV’. Like many of the rest of you, I have watched programs dealing with survival, business, home decorating, and romance. But it’s the programs centering around romance which fascinate me the most. Can someone really find the love of their life on a semi-scripted TV show? Or is it all about the money and achieving the fifteen minutes of fame we are all supposed to have at some point in our lives?
I don’t know the answer to those questions, but I do know it was a heck of a lot of fun creating my own reality television show, BACHELOR BLISS, and imagining what would happen if the ultimate Texas cowboy/ladies’ man, Brad McCabe, somehow got roped into signing up to appear on one.
I figured he wouldn’t find romance there—that would come later—after the experience of chasing fame and fortune had wrecked havoc on his life.
And I knew it wouldn’t be easy, either. True love never is. Which is why I paired Brad with an old high school classmate he had barely known existed. Someone with ambition of her own, journalistic ambition. For a private guy like Brad, that’s a worst case scenario.
How did it all end? Well, to find that out, you’ll have to turn the page….
I hope you enjoy reading this romantic comedy as much as I enjoyed writing it. If you’d like to know more about this and other books, I invite you to visit the book list and series guide.
