Welcome to The RG2E, Featured Author Liz Matis.
Take it away, Liz…
Thanks D.D. for having me here today!
I am a mild manner accountant by day and romance writer by night. Married 27 years I believe in happy ever after!
The idea for Love By Design spouted from one my other loves – HGTV. Here is the back cover blurb:
Design Intervention starts the second season with its own surprise makeover. Interior designer Victoria Bryce must break in her temporary co-host, Aussie Russ Rowland.
Victoria, former socialite wild child hopes the reality show will give her the clout to launch her own design line without her family connections. Russ, former bad boy Australian TV star is using the show to launch his acting career in the States.
Sparks fly on camera as they argue over paint colors and measurement mishaps leading to passions igniting behind the scenes. But when their pasts collide with the present will the foundation they built withstand the final reveal?
No spoiler alert here since Love By Design (think Sex and the City meets HGTV romp) is a romance and all romances have or should have a happy ever after but what happens after The End?
I wonder what’s going on between Victoria Byrce and Aussie Russ Rowland.
Here is a quick conversation between the two:
Russ: So now that I’m living here do I get a say on the décor.
Victoria: My – I mean – our place looks nice as it is.
Russ throws a lacy mauve pillow at her.
Victoria: Oh-okay, I guess we can switch out a couple of things.
Russ: Good, let’s start with a TV.
Victoria: Oh, no! They are hideous! A design disaster!
Russ: Come on. I’ll build one of those wall cabinets that will completely hide it.
Victoria: Hmmm, will you be doing this shirtless?
Russ: That’s my uniform.
Victoria: And could we play hunky contractor and naughty housewife who can’t pay the bill?
Victoria: I guess I could work in a 32” flat screen.
Russ: Cupcake, you know bigger is better.
Victoria: True, I do. 36” then.
Russ agreed know measuring wasn’t Victoria’s forte – she’d never know if he snuck in a 42”.
So what do you think? And do you wonder what happens after the hero and heroine get their happy ever after?
