When I read the synopsis for Mary Pat Johns' Lovin' on Red prior to our interview, I just had a feeling I was going to love this series.  Listen in to see why I'm certain of it after our conversation.

If you've been around for a while, you've probably heard me figure out that I do like romance--if it's a romcom, that is.  That's not to say I never enjoy a good story that happens to be a romance, but hey. If it's a romcom (and a good one), I'm sure to like it for the romance itself. BONUS points if it has fun other story elements (can we just say there needs to be more romcom mysteries?).

Chatting with Mary Pat Johns was a whole lot of fun, and she hooked me on the idea for her stories right off the bat.

I especially like how she has ways for us to get all the "Valiant stories as quickly as possible, so be sure to check all that out.


Lovin' on Red by Mary Pat Johns

 Rory is a wildly successful contractor with all the right connections. He has everything, except the woman who sees past his missing foot. If only the tiny redhead he’s insanely attracted to would go on a date with him, it could work, but Vi refuses.

Licensed massage therapist Vi Summers needs her childhood home remodeled, and Rory Spence is the perfect man for the job. Only he’s the last person she wants to work with. Despite Rory’s reputation as a flirt, his tender attention to getting her house right helps Vi see into his heart. Too bad her past mistakes prevent a future relationship.

Drawn together like magnets, they navigate trouble with illegal squatters, family expectations, and fire. Will they finally be honest with each other, or will their secrets tear them apart?
