Interview with Candace Shaw author of Her Perfect Candidate @Candace_Shaw #RLFblog #historicalromance

Her Perfect Candidate 
Title: Her Perfect Candidate (Chasing Love Series)
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Harlequin Kimani
Author Name: Candace Shaw
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Why did you write this book?
I wrote Her Perfect Candidate because I wanted to create a hero that is even though he's somewhat of a playboy, he's not a bad guy. Steven Monroe is the epitome an all-around great guy. He's a millionaire but he doesn't care about that and is quite modest. Instead, uses his position as senator to be active in the low-income communities and help others. His pet peeve is people who complain about the issues, but don't do anything to find a solution.
What is your favorite genre to read?
My favorite genre to read is romance which includes the sub categories of contemporary, historical and urban fantasy. I also enjoy chick lit.
Do you enjoy films and/or TV shows? Which are your favorites?
I don't watch a lot of television but when I do I can't miss Scandal, Covert Affairs, Marvel Agents of Shield, Once Upon a Time and Royal Pains. I have too many favorite movies to name but I love everything with Elizabeth Taylor (favorite movie star) as well as more up-to-date romances and comedies such as The Notebook, Love and Basketball, You've Got Mail and anything with Denzel Washington.
What are you working on at the moment, and what are we likely to see from you in the coming months?
Currently, I'm finishing the second book in the Chasing Love series, Journey to Seduction, whose heroine is Sydney Chase, Megan's twin sister and Bryce Monroe, Steven's younger brother. The two have a love/relationship, more so on her side, until they take a cross-country trip together to Vegas for motorcycle fest. It comes out in February 2015. In the next month or so, I'll begin writing my self-published novel My Kinda Girl which is the last book in the Arrington Family Series (check website below for excerpts) and it will be out in Winter 2014. My Kinda Girl is about Dr. Sean Arrington, a psychiatrist in his family private medical practice. While he's the most intelligent one out his siblings, he's also the most self-absorbed, arrogant one and playful playboy who has a type of woman he dates. He prefers the model-type. Tall, leggy, not-too-bright and dotes on his every word. However, he meets his match in Traci and she's the total opposite of everything he thinks he wants. I can't wait to begin writing the book.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Megan Chase is career-focused and independent woman who loves being single but not because she doesn't trust men, she simply enjoys her life and her main concern is her interior decorating firm. Her family and friends keep setting her up on blind dates because they think she's lonely after a break up from almost two years ago. However, she's not and she's tired of them. Steven Monroe is a state senator who is going to run for the United States senate seat his father is retiring from. However, the media views him as a bad boy playboy and his campaign team wants him to settle down with one woman before and during the official campaign. He keeps running into Megan and they it hit off and decide to date in name only to get her family and his campaign team off their backs.
Co-owner of an up-and-coming interior decorating firm, Megan Chase loves being a single woman on the fast track to success. But everything changes when a flat tire brings Georgia senator Steven Monroe into her life. The sinfully sexy politician needs the right woman to clean up his image. And with Megan's fine eye for detail, she just may be the woman for the job.
Steven's reputation as a player could cost him his chance at a U.S. senate seat. But when the cameras catch him and Megan in a kiss that's all too real, it's not only his future candidacy in jeopardy. As the lines between politics and desire begin to blur, how much will he risk to transform their passionate pretense into a landslide for love.
