Morgan Mandel's Girl of My Dreams

As a special feature during the month of February, I'm highlighting romance novels I've heard about. While I haven't read this one yet, it sounds excellent. Not only that, it came in Fourth in the Romance category in a recent Preditors and Editors poll. Here, author Morgan Mandel talks about Girl of My Dreams and why she wrote it:

After my dark romantic suspense, Two Wrongs, I needed to change gears and get light. That's when I hit on the idea of my romantic comedy, Girl of My Dreams.

What woman doesn't like a good makeover? When Jillian, the straitlaced temp to Blake, the producer of a reality show, gets the glam treatment and enters his television contest, the change does not set well with her boss.

Suddenly she's not the dependable gofer he thought she was, but a beautiful woman, way too similar to his conniving movie-star mother. Can Jillian convince Blake she has his best interests at heart? She has to because her love for him is at stake.

More about Girl of My Dreams:

When food poisoning strikes the set of a new reality show targeted to save a floundering studio, Jillian, the temporary assistant, sets out to round up a contestant, but ends up filling the gap herself.

Her boss, the producer, discovers what she’s done, but it's too late to stop her. The curtain's up and the show must go on.

Believing his loyal assistant has turned into a selfish conniver like his movie-star mother, he's furious. The further Jillian advances in the rounds, the more convinced he is of her deceit.

Jillian faces all sorts of embarrassing situations and adventures along the way to the main prize of the millionaire. He's obviously attracted to her and she should be happy.

The problem is, Jillian loves the producer.

Me and my? Shouldn't it be my books and I? Sorry, I see that too often and it bugs me.

Anyway, this book is out just in time for the love holiday of the year, The big V day. Good luck with it. In theater it's break a leg, what is it for writers, break a finger?

Neat concept - looking forward to reading it.

Morgan Mandel said...

Yes, I did have a lot of fun writing Girl of My Dreams. It was a refreshing change from Two Wrongs. As you can see, I have a light and a dark side.
