Romance Book Casting Call with Kieran Kramer and Giveaway

Today I'm happy to welcome to the Casting Call Kieran Kramer. I absolutely adore Kieran and I'm so happy she was able to join us in our celebration. Kieran is awesome and is nice. I always love having her stop by and her books rock!

Welcome to the Casting Call Kieran!

USA Today best-selling author and double-Rita finalist Kieran Kramer writes Regency historical romances for St. Martin's Press. IF YOU GIVE A GIRL A VISCOUNT, the fourth and last book in her lighthearted Impossible Bachelors series, is on store shelves now. Her new series, House of Brady, premiers in 2012. A former CIA employee, journalist, and English teacher, Kieran's also a game show veteran, karaoke enthusiast, and general adventurer.

In Cloudy With a Chance of Marriage, Ryan Gosling, from Drive and The Ides of March, would play Captain Stephen Arrow. I chose Ryan because of his golden good looks and swagger. He’d be the perfect Stephen Arrow, the Impossible Bachelor who’s always had women falling at his feet.

In this story, Stephen has left the Navy and now has to adjust to life on land. But he can’t relinquish his commanding ways so easily—nor his tendency to party with his wild friends.

However, Jilly Jones, his next-door-neighbor and owner of Hodgepodge, a charming bookstore, doesn’t want to put up with his shenanigans. She turns the tables on him and doesn’t allow Stephen to boss her about, nor does she fall for his incredible charm.

At least, not at first.

After she admits how attracted she is to Stephen, she begins to see him in a different light. Not only is he super hot and sexy but he’s also a good man--an honorable man, unlike her wretched husband that she’s run away from and hopes never to see again.

Jennifer Lawrence, from The Hunger Games, would play Jilly. I chose Jennifer because Jilly is quite independent and has to fight to keep that independence. When her awful husband finds her, she puts up the fight of her life not to let him ruin her newfound happiness.

Jennifer plays a warrior in The Hunger Games, so I think her fire and spirit are a good match for Jilly’s personality.

Her heart’s been under the weather.

Every woman dreams of saying “I do.” Jilly Jones did–and years of a deeply imperfect marriage followed. Now living in London and working in a charming bookshop, the free-spirited Jilly is perfectly content with her newfound independence…until she meets a dashing naval officer who sparks her longing for a real happily ever after.

Is new love in the forecast?

Captain Stephen Arrow is just home after years of service, and he’s in no hurry to give up his hard-won freedom. The meddlesome bluestocking Jilly Jones is exactly the kind of woman he doesn’t need…but something about her keeps drawing Stephen back to the bookshop. But will a scandalous chapter in Jilly’s past stand in the way of their heated attraction? For this bachelor, nothing is impossible….

  13. I can picture Ryan as a captain (but his hair should be a little longer to give him a rakish and devil may care look and attitude :D) while Jennifer perfectly fit the role of Jilly, she has this strong personality plus she doesn't look like she's someone who'll surrender easily. :D
