Musa Monday: Wench Sara Daniel

Today we have the lovely Wench, Sara Daniel, who writes for Musa and other publishes. She is also bringing along a couple of other guests. 

Over to them...


Eleni, thanks so much for inviting me to stop by your blog. For those who don’t know me, I’m Sara Daniel, and I write contemporary romance. Construction Beauty Queen is one of my latest books, and it’s set in a small town with a host of quirky characters. I’ve managed to corral the hero (Matt Shaw) and heroine (Veronica Jamison) for a few quick questions.

Sara: If you could pick a song that sums up your life, what would it be? And why?

Veronica: I’m Movin’ On by Rascal Flatts. I had to walk away from the only life I’ve ever known to make a new life for myself. Leaving home was a heart-wrenching choice, but I had to do it to follow my dreams.

Matt: Guys Like Me by Eric Church. This country song talks about a rough-around-the-edges small-town man who falls for a high-class woman who “has her pick of all the trust-fund types.” Yeah, well…I certainly didn’t plan to fall for her.

Sara: Can you each name something you wouldn’t leave the house without?

Veronica: Definitely something in my signature pink color. I wouldn’t leave without putting on lipstick either.

Matt: My truck. I’ve got all my tools inside that I need for the day’s job. It wouldn’t make sense to go anywhere without it.

Sara: What would I never find in your bedroom?

Veronica: *shivers* I hope never to find a mouse! I cleaned more than I ever had in my life to make that trailer habitable, but it’s still a bit sketchy.

Matt: Makeup, glitter and high heels. If it’s “girlie,” I don’t want anything to do with it!

Sara: What was your first though when you saw each other?

Veronica: Hottie in a toolbelt. Boy, was I right!

Matt: High class and high maintenance. I was right…and I was wrong.

Sara: Thanks Veronica and Matt. You were a blast to write, especially when you were on the page together! Here’s the blurb for Construction Beauty Queen

Chicago socialite Veronica Jamison is determined to shake off her sheltered lifestyle and overbearing parents. She heads to her grandfather’s small town of Kortville, ready to roll up her sleeves and work for the family construction business. She’ll prove her worth, even if it means answering to the company’s ruggedly handsome co-owner, Matt.

Matt Shaw just wants to run his business, spend time with the niece he’s raising on his own, and give back to the townspeople who have stood by him. Managing a spoiled-rotten princess he knows he’ll never be good enough for? Not part of his plan. But as he gets to know Veronica, he learns there’s more to her than her beautiful looks and designer clothes. She’s got a heart as rich as her background.

With the quirky townspeople rallying against Veronica inheriting her grandfather’s business, it’s up to Matt to try to drive her out of town. But how can he, when instead she’s driving her way into his heart?

Sounds like great conflict there, Sara. He's damned if he does drive her out of town because he'll lose her, and he's damned if he doesn't drive her out because he'll lose the business.

Sam Cheever said...

The book sounds wonderful, Sara! Great premise. Don't you love writing (reading) quirky, small town characters? It's one of my favorite things.
