Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

He can’t buy his way out of trouble this time…

Housekeeper-slash-entrepreneur Ella Bradley prides herself on being ready for anything. After all, with a father who died—and lied to her—and a stepmom and stepsister who despise her, she has no one else to depend on. But on the biggest night of her life, she’s unprepared to be trapped in an elevator with the man of her dreams. 

Wealthy prince-to-a-fortune Adrian Vassos wants nothing more than to shed his reputation as a party boy and prove that he is a savvy businessman. Even, a gentleman. But when he’s trapped with a woman who knows his reputation but not his face, he gives into the temptation to be someone else—and lies. 

When serendipity brings them together again—this time to work off community service—can their combined sentences spark a new ending? Maybe…if Adrian’s lies don’t find him out. Again. 

The magic of Deep Haven enchants in this modern-day Cinderella story.

Hi Andrea! Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and giving my readers the chance to get to know you and your new book- Can’t Buy Me Love  a little bit better!  I like to start these interviews the same way with something fun to break the ice: can you share 5 random facts about yourself that we will NOT find in your bio?

1. Spring is my favorite season. Everything seems possible in the springtime.

2. I have a black belt in Kyuki-Do, a mixed martial art.

3. My favorite dessert is homemade French silk pie.

4. I love beach vacations, but my dream vacation would be a safari in Africa.

5. I am second in a family of six children. I have one sister and four brothers.


When did you first discover you had a passion and talent for writing?

I’ve wanted to be a writer for most of my life. I used to write short stories and really bad poetry. I took a break from writing in my teens and early twenties, but then rediscovered a love for it again. I think I’m still trying to discover if I have a talent for it. Ha!

What drew you to writing romance?

Romance novels are a unique tool for engaging people. There are so many truths that can be conveyed in a romance. Readers are already in the mood to read about love, and weaving in the timeless truths of the ways God loves us and shows that love to us can be beautiful.

Can’t Buy Me Love is part of the Deep Haven series, taking place in Susan May Warren’s beloved town of the same name. Was it intimidating for you to take on this world that so many fans like myself already love?

Yes! So intimidating. At first. Then I remembered that I love Deep Haven too, the characters, the setting, the mood of the town, and excitement took over. I was given the chance to not just visit Deep Haven, but to build my own home there. Who wouldn’t be excited about that?!


What type of research went into keeping with the heart of Deep Haven?

Well, first, I re-read A LOT of the Deep Haven series. That was the fun part. There is also a document we shared which held many pertinent details of the characters. Eye color, vehicle type (if known), who is related to whom etc. That was super helpful. And, anytime I hit a snag I’d reach out to Susan May Warren and she would fill in the blanks.

Can you tell us a little bit more about Can’t Buy Me Love?

 

Housekeeper Ella Bradley isn’t looking for love, she’d looking for someone to support her organic soap business. Heir to the Bear Creek Resorts empire Adrian Vassos needs his newest project to be a success to prove that he’s more than a pretty face. Both of them are unprepared for what happens next. Can’t Buy Me Love is a modern day fairy tale romp through Deep Haven. You’re going to love it.

What do you hope readers will take away from the book?

Throughout the story both Ella and Adrian struggle with identity. Are they more than their jobs and their family story? They learn to see that what God thinks of them is the only thing that truly matters—and He sees them as His beloved children. My prayer is that readers will come away knowing that truth as well, that they are God’s beloved child.

Thank you again for taking the time to answer these questions. Before you go, are there any other projects you are currently working on that you can share?

 

I’m excited to say that I’m working on a second book for the Deep Haven Collection, Hanging By A Moment. This second (for me) book will feature Colleen Decker, who some readers will recognize from Susie’s book You Don’t Know Me. Colleen has come back to Deep Haven and needs to figure out what she wants her life to look like. When handsome and mysterious Jack Stewart helps her with some search and rescue training, emotions begin to run high.

 

I think fans of Deep Haven will resonate with Colleen and Jack’s story. It releases October, 2021.
