My Mr Manny 
Cover Love at Romance Lives Forever is a short intro to a
book and includes a cover, blurb, buy links, and social media contacts for the
author. Today’s featured book is My Mr Manny by Jennifer Garcia.
Mia Balducci misses her childhood days and yearns for the big,
Italian family that she left behind in small town Massachusetts. At the tender age of sixteen,
Mia moves with her bachelor father to Los
Angeles, but no matter how many years pass, it never becomes
home to her. The years spent living with her father aren’t easy, especially since
she can’t stop thinking about what she once had. Her enrollment in the University of Southern California promises to bring exciting
changes to her life, but Mia winds up with big problems instead. When she runs into
an old friend from her old hometown of Winthrop,
she gets swept up in nostalgia, and she soon loses herself in a quickly-progressing
romance. When the fantasy falls apart, she is left to raise her precious little
girl, Lucia, on her own. The demands of Mia’s work schedule and Lucia’s needs increase,
and their lives become increasingly hectic. It is soon clear to Mia that she needs
help. Luckily, her life-saving cousin saves the day and brings the mother and daughter
a male nanny – their new “manny.”
After losing his high-pressure job on Wall Street, Dominic Roberts
wants to follow his dreams to have a family. He’s already one fiancée down, and
there are no likely prospects for another. In order to find the family he so desperately
wants, he finds himself getting into the manny business. Since he is fully qualified
to provide child care and is eager to leave New York City behind, his sister-in-law
is able to land him a job in California working for his first client – the beautiful
and intriguing Mia Balducci.
Will Lucia like the new man in her mother’s life? Will Mia? And
will this new trio discover the happily ever after they all so desperately seek?

Interview

Tell us about your story’s world. What is it like in this
period or place?
The story is a Regency.
It begins during the main Season in London, from
there we move to Paris, then Yorkshire, England.
1816 is known as the year without summer.
What inspired you to write this book?
This is the 3d book in
my series The Marriage Game, however it was the second one I wrote. Robert kept
badgering me until I had his story down. As anyone who has read the book can tell
you, he is a very difficult man.
Which character in your current book do you think readers
will like the most? Why?
Well I hope they like
Serena and Robert. They’ve both had difficult but different experiences they’ve
had to overcome. Robert is used to getting what he wants, but Serena won’t be bullied.
Getting to their HEA was, at times, a struggle. One of my favorite secondary characters
is the Dowager Lady Beaumont, Robert’s grandmother.
Why do you write?
Because I love it. It’s
the best job I’ve ever had.
Who has helped you the most in your career as an author?
That’s a hard question.
My mother-in-law has been my biggest cheerleader, but for actual help, it is other
authors. My critique groups played a big part. I had a great mentor in Delilah Marvelle,
and my agent’s assistant, Claire Cavanaugh, who taught me how to edit and polish
my books.
When you’re not writing, what would we find you doing?
Social media, supporting
other authors on Facebook and Twitter. I blog three times a week. Almost every morning
I walk the beach and on the weekends I paddleboard.
Are you a plotter, or do you prefer to make it up on the spur
of the moment?
It’s more spur of the
moment, but I will plot a scene in my head.
Any advice for new authors?
Learn about the business,
and know that this is a huge business. Join a supportive critique group, and professional
organizations, such as RWA and its chapters. Develop your voice. Don’t give up.
What other jobs have you held besides writing?
Boat cleaner, sales clerk,
musician, soldier, college professor and lawyer.
What are you currently reading for fun?
I’m reading Jo Beverly’s
Malloren Series, but I’ve got new releases from Grace Burrowes, Shana Galen and
several others on my Kindle waiting for me.
If you could time travel what era would be your first stop?
LOL, Regency England.
Do you believe in luck?
I do believe in luck.
I also believe in hard work.
What kind of music do you listen to while driving? Same question
for Writing
I don’t. I listen to
NPR. I have to have silence when I write.
Do you play any musical instruments?
I play piano, but not
as well as I used to.

Please complete the sentence

I love pizza with Gorgonzola cheese.
I’m always ready for snuggling with my husband.
When I’m alone, I write and read.
