Blurb:
Kathleen Witte is a down-to-earth girl. She has to be, with the
family ranch on the verge of success. After seven months of keeping it all together
by swearing off men, however, Kathleen needs a bit of fun in the sun. Waking up
with a husband she can’t remember isn’t how she planned to blow off steam.
The last thing Jackson Taylor wants in his life is a down-to-earth
girl. He has four weeks of freedom in which to find his birth mother. He’s done
well avoiding commitment until now, so when he wakes up on a Mexican beach with
Kathleen his first reaction is curiosity. When he spies the matching wedding rings
on their left hands curiosity turns to concern.
Neither Jackson
nor Kathleen want to stay married, but when her family shows up, they have no choice.
Once back in Texas,
however, can they keep this all-business marriage from turning into an all-consuming
love?

Interview with Kathleen Witte

Kathleen, tell us about
yourself. What are you like?
I’m a Texas
girl, born and bred, which makes it kind of funny that I fell for a city boy. But
then, Jackson was a Texas boy at one point! I train horses and live
on the same ranch where I grew up.
What do you think is your
strongest point?
My determination. I set a goal and I go after it whole-heartedly.
Do you have a weakness?
(If so, what do you think it is? What does your lover think it is? What does your
enemy think it is?)
Sometimes I become so focused on a goal that I miss the point
of living life. That’s what led me to Mexico, which wound up being a good
thing. But at the time, Mexico
felt like the biggest mistake of my life! Jackson
will say my greatest weakness comes when he does this kissing thing on the back
of my neck…
Saint’s Devilish Deal
What drives you to do
the things you do? What makes you want to be the “good guy?”
I think my drive comes from my grandfather, and my father to
a certain extent. Dad wasn’t always around when I was little, so I started trying
new things to get his attention. That didn’t always work, but my boldness did capture
my grandfather’s attention. Him being proud of my accomplishments keeps me trying
for even bigger goals.
What’s your favorite guilty
pleasure?
Dark chocolate with sea salt. I know dark chocolate is technically
better for us than milk chocolate…but it tastes so good I feel guilty enjoying it.
If you didn’t know how
old you were how old would you be?
Tough question. I think I’d like to be 28. Because at 28 I’d
be old enough to know better…and still young enough to get away with doing some
bad things…ha!
A biography has been written
about you. What do you think the title would be in six words or less?
Kathleen Witte, An Ordinary Girl.
If money were not an object,
where would you most like to live?
Texas,
exactly where I am. I’m a very lucky girl – I grew up in the best place in the world,
and now that I’m grown up I get to do the thing I love (train horses) and live there
with the best guy in the world (Jackson).
He comes and goes a little bit, because of his work, but Texas is definitely part of our lives.
What song would best describe
your life?
I’m Just a Girl by Deana Carter
If you were a tool, what
would people use you to do?
Get the job done! I’m the type of person who can’t quit on a
task. I’m a hard worker…so I guess I’d make a good hammer.
Picture yourself as a
store. Considering your personality and lifestyle, what type of products would be
sold there?
A little bit of everything. Saddles and tack, girlie dresses,
boots. I’m a General Store kind of girl.
As a child, what was your
favorite thing about school?
The day being over! I wasn’t a bad student and school wasn’t
hard for me, but I had so much more fun on the ranch that I wished every day for
the 3 o’clock bell to ring.
Tell us an embarrassing
story that has to do with a pet. If you have no pets, a story about a significant
other will do. ^_^
Probably one of my most embarrassing moments happened when I
was visiting U-TEP on a college preview weekend. I’m a small town girl and the campus
was huge, but I was so confident that I couldn’t do anything wrong! So I’m wandering
around the campus, not paying attention to where I’m going and I slammed into this
photographer guy – who was none other than my childhood crush, Jackson Taylor. I
had no idea what he was doing there and I was a little snippy with him. I broke
his camera…and it was just bad. That did not lead to us falling in love and living
happily ever after, not for a while. And he still teases me about that day!
If you came with a warning
label, what would it say?
Warning: Contents are Combustible.

Please Fill in the Blanks as Kathleen

I love pizza with extra cheese.
I’m always ready for a picnic.
When I’m alone, I think about my next To Do list.
You’d never be able to tell, but I’m usually nervous.
If I had a halo it would be crooked.
If I could turn back time I’d ask Jackson out way back in college.
