A Case for Calamity by Mackenzie Crowne

Mackenzie Crowne

Mackenzie Crowne is visiting me today with her book, A Case for Calamity, part of the The Wild Rose Press's "Twelve Brides of Christmas" series.

Here's the blurb for Mac's fun contemporary romance:

For Jane Whitmore, agreeing to switch identities with her best friend seems like innocent fun, but spending a romantic night in Paris with a man who doesn't know her real name turns out to be a lark gone bad. When their one night of passion proves to have lasting results, tracking down Gabe Sutton and telling him he's about to be the father of her child is just another calamity Jane would rather avoid. After years of avoiding long-term romantic entanglements, Gabe has found a woman he might just be able to build a life with, only to have her disappear. When he finally finds her, his belief in happily-ever-after staggers under the weight of deception, and looming fatherhood leaves him with two choices: fight her for custody of his future child or cling to the promise of true love.

And an excerpt to whet our appetite for more:

     "He doesn't even know my name. What am I supposed to do? Walk up to him and say, 'Hi Gabe. I'm the chick who tricked you into believing I was Michael Austin's daughter two months ago in Paris. Oh, and by the way, I'm having your baby?'"
     "I was thinking more along the lines of, 'Hi Gabe. I'm the chick who snuck out of your hotel room in Paris before you could say Good morning, beautiful. By the way, I had a really good time -- and six orgasms. Oh, and I'm having your baby. Want to get a pizza?"
     Jane laughed at Shae's cheeky grin, then shoved her fingers through her hair. "Right. That'll work."
     "I googled him. You're right. He's hawt! He left his number that morning in Paris." She smiled slyly. "You should call him."
     Jane snorted. "I don't think giving Gabe Sutton a booty call would be a good idea. Besides, I'm on a sabbatical from men."
     Shae waggled her brows. "What's that old saying? When you fall off a horse, you need to climb right back on?"

Mac's bio:

Wife, mother and really young grandmother, Mac lives with her high school sweetheart husband, a neurotic Pomeranian, and a blind cat. She calls Phoenix home because the southwest feeds her soul. Though her friends claim she's a princess, she disagrees. After all, one can't raise two rambunctious boys to wonderful men without getting a little dirt under their nails. A lover of the romance genre, her resolve to share her stories with others was sharpened by a bout with breast cancer. Today she is an award-winning, multi-published author and seven year survivor, living the dream.
