Guest Blogger: Author Nicola Marsh

Next up on the Romance Author Extravaganza is bestselling author, Nicola Marsh, who's given us over thirty delightfully sassy heroines to date. Go for it, Nicola!

Thanks for inviting me to blog, Libby, it’s great to be here.

Before I start writing a book, I must have the perfect title. Even though I know a publisher may change it, the words won’t flow for me unless the title I devise sums up the book perfectly.

Yesterday I had a similar experience with a song.

I know some authors use playlists while writing (me? I prefer silence) but with NOT THE MARRYING KIND, my new book just released, I knew the song for the book trailer had to be perfect too.

The song needed to encapsulate the fun, flirty feel of the book. I wanted fast and boppy and Vegas!

Must say, I discovered googling songs can become as addictive as googling hot heroes (purely for inspiration purposes, of course!)
I had a ball checking out Vegas songs on YouTube and like finding the perfect book title, I knew I’d found the perfect song within hearing the first few bars.

Johnny Ray’s ‘I’m Going to Vegas’ is everything I want NOT THE MARRYING KIND to be. Fast-paced. Fun. Racy.

So what do you think?

Who said marriage had to be convenient?

LA party planner Poppy Collins has kept her side business—planning divorce parties as the Divorce Diva—under wraps, but keeping her sister's company afloat is proving tougher by the day. When a new divorce party prospect gives Poppy the opportunity to save the day and boost her bottom line, she can't pass it up. But this time, she's about to get way more than she bargained for…

Vegas golden boy Beck Blackwood knows Poppy's secret, and he's not afraid to use it to get exactly what he wants—a wife. With his reputation and corporate expansion plans on the line, the only way he can repair the damage is by getting hitched, and fast. And if blackmail is the only way to get Poppy to the altar, then so be it…

But they're in the city of high stakes, and Poppy has a few aces up her sleeve. Now it's time to find out if they're playing to win…or if they're playing for keeps.
