Hi Brenda and welcome to HJ! We’re so excited to chat with you about your new release, Bachelor Unforgiving!

 

Please summarize the book for the readers here:

Bachelor UnforgivingThey say you can forgive but you can never forget. Virgil Bougard takes that saying to heart. Four years ago Kara Goshay believed a vicious lie about him and ended their relationship. And even after her apology, Virgil is still bitter. He doesn’t intend to make things easy for Kara when his family’s firm hires her PR company to revamp his playboy image. But faking a liaison with Kara for the media backfires when the line between fantasy and reality is blurred by strong sexual attraction.

Kara wanted forgiveness. Instead she’s deep into a heated affair with the powerful, charismatic man she can’t resist. The man who claims he’ll never forgive her, especially when a secret enemy puts her professional reputation in jeopardy. Stakes are high—but so is their searing desire, a connection so intense it could possibly tame this elusive, unforgiving bachelor at last…
 

Please share the opening lines of this book:

Kara Goshay knew she couldn’t put it off any longer. After all, the main reason she’d attended tonight’s event was to seek out Virgil Bougard. She owed him an apology and she intended to give it to him.

 

Please share a few Fun facts about this book…

  • This is Book 5 in the Bachelors in Demand Series
  • I introduce characters from one of my other favorite series
  • I bring all the former bachelors back for a birthday party

 

Please tell us a little about the characters in your book. As you wrote your protagonist was there anything about them that surprised you?

Virgil is an unforgiving hero who will not forgive Kara for a lie she believed about him and ended their affair years ago. What surprised me was just how deep Virgil’s inability was to forgiive.

 

If your book was optioned for a movie, what scene would you use for the audition of the main characters and why?

“How was the wedding?”
Virgil glanced up when his father walked into his office. For a minute he had forgotten his old man had arrived in town that morning. While growing up Matthew Bougard had been his idol and he still was. Although it seemed that lately, as they both got older, father and son didn’t always agree on things. He couldn’t help wondering what had brought his father back to Charlotte that morning. All the text message he’d received last night had said was to expect him around ten. And like clockwork, he was here.
“The wedding was nice, although it’s hard to believe another Steele got married. Tyson surprised all of us.”
Matthew chuckled as he took the chair across from Virgil’s desk. “I can imagine. But did you honestly think those Steeles would be die-hard bachelors forever? Take a look at your own godbrothers.” The Steele family were good friends of theirs.
Virgil frowned. “I’d rather not.” Doing so would make him recall how he and his five godbrothers had formed the Guarded Hearts Club almost four years ago, right after his breakup with Kara Goshay. At the time all six godbrothers had been going through their own personal hell with women and made a pledge to remain single forever. Now four had defected. He and Zion were the only unmarried members left and they were determined to keep the club going, no matter what.
“Well, I am proud of my four godsons and their decisions to settle down and marry. Look at your mom and me, Virgil. We’ve been happily married close to forty years now.”

    I have to admit it’s me. I expect people to not jump to conclusion and go to the source to find out the truth. I hate when people believe rumors & innuendos . I have a tough time forgiving people for that but I do eventually but I don’t forget, especially when trust is broken.

  2. Evelyn Nathalia

    I had a classmate that was like that. He was like someone who’s angry to the world and he held a lot of grudge. This one time, he was blaming me for something that I didn’t do and I have to endure the consequence because my teacher wanted me to learn how to be a leader. I was astounded and quite upset at that time, because he made me do something that he is supposed to do by himself. It’s all forgiven but I still don’t understand why he did it.

  3. Debbi Wellenstein

    Yes, unfortunately there was a person I knew who did that. Thankfully, this person is no longer in my life.

  4. Fe

    I’m slow to anger but when I am treated unjustly, especially by someone I was taught to love unconditionally, then I will hold a grudge. I am in that situation right now & has been ongoing for over 2 years. I may eventually forgive the offender but, like Nancy Luebke, I will not forget.

  5. dianne casey

    I knew a couple of people at work. They were very miserable both inside and out. You never knew from day to day if they would talk to you or not.

  6. Connie Lee

    I know one person like that, but I think he would be able to be forgiving if the other person would come to him and admit his wrong doing.
