Teri Anne Stanley began her writing career with scientific articles—followed by a three-ingredient recipe column, but wasn't allowed to write naked parts for them—so now she writes romance.
She's also worked as a fashion designer for female body builders and a sex therapist for rats. In her spare time, she’s a neuroscience research assistant. Along with a variety of offspring and dogs, she and Mr. Stanley live just outside of Sugartit, which is—honest to God—between Beaverlick and Rabbit Hash, Kentucky.
Hi, and thanks for inviting me to be a guest today on Ramblings!
My newest book, ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE WITH THE BIKER, is a fun romp through a Las Vegas Romance convention, part of Entangled’s “What Happens in Vegas” series. All of my books have a healthy dose of humor—it’s my mission to laugh my way through life, and to take as many people as possible along for the ride. Some of my stories have dark stuff—life is hard—but even then, there is joy. This book has conflict, but fortunately I didn’t have to kill off anyone’s brother or best friend to make things difficult—Quinn and Kellie are just ordinary people who meet and fall in love under extraordinary circumstances.
Kind of like some of my favorite romantic comedy films. Entertaining, inspiring, tearjerking…I love them all.
I’ll watch anything with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, though Fifty First Dates will always top the list. I think that what’s great about their movies is that their characters have aged—had children, gotten married and divorced (Just Go With It)—since their first movies together.
A few weeks ago, my husband and I watched Trainwreck, with Amy Schumer. Loved. It. Not only is it the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time, it really took some feminist leaps through Hollywood, in my humble opinion. The heroine sleeps around, drinks too much, and always promises to call. How often does the HEROINE get to do that? Usually those characters are the hero—or the quirky side-kick, if they’re women. But Amy Schumer dumps slut-shaming entertainment on its arse. Yay!
My all-time favorite romantic comedy would have to be “There’s Something About Mary,” with Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller. So. Freaking. Funny. Ben Stiller is the awkward hero who falls for the “it” girl in high school, and finds her again many years later. And there is much awkwardness. And guys in trees singing.
There are too many awesome movies and actors to list, so I’ll stop there. But feel free to continue the list…
Up For Grabs:Aspiring writer Kelli Dalton needs a man, and fast. When she’s rear-ended by a sexy-as-sin biker on the way to a Vegas romance readers convention, she sees her chance. If he’ll pose as her fake boyfriend long enough to impress a bestselling author, Kelli has a shot at saving the bookstore for underprivileged kids she runs back home.
Quinn Anderson doesn’t know what to make of the cute little writer who stirs his heart and his libido, but he does know he wants to get better acquainted. And if that means keeping up their sexy ruse all week, he’s game.
Quinn knows girl like Kelli deserves someone with a secure future to help with her store, not a guy struggling to turn a profit on his chopper shop. But if his motorcycle designs win the big Vegas competition, he’ll have enough prize money to fund his dreams…and hers.
