Ginger Halloway: Wow, this is awesome! Thanks for letting us stop by!
Lance Franklin: Yes, ma’am. Thank you kindly.
Devika: Ginger, as it’s ladies first, please tell me a bit about yourself. Where do you live? And what do you do for a living?
Ginger: I live in San Francisco. My friends call me a fashionista. (Laughs.) I guess I’m an average woman. I hang out with my friends. I love to read any book I can get my hands on, and I’m a bit of a fact nerd. I also write songs in my spare time.
For now, I’m working as a secretar--
(Lance clears his throat.)
Ginger: (Blushes.) Pardon me…executive assistant. But I have some other aspirations as well.
Devika: I see. And who or what are The Misfits?
Ginger: Ah, the girls. That’s me and my group of friends – there’s Nicole, Sharon, Merry, Jessica and Valerie. Well, I have Laura too, but we’ve known each other from childhood.
Anyway, the six of us are real close, have been tight ever since we met in college. We were all rejected from a specific sorority, and just decided to keep hanging out after that. Truthfully, I think Nicky only tried to join that thing out of some dare or joke. It’s just not her style.
Devika: I heard you and Lance met under unusual circumstances. Want to fill me in on that?
Ginger: (Shares a look with her man.) Sure. Um, so this is what happened. I guess I was at a somewhat desperate point in my life. I wasn’t good at dating or anything. A study for a miracle drug came around, and I decided to participate. It was supposed to make us irresistible to the opposite sex. To make a long story short, I set up some short dates with a bunch of dudes and it turned into a real nightmare. Before long I was being chased out of the bar and down the street. Thankfully, Lance jumped in and got me to safety.
Devika: Wow. That sure makes for an interesting story. Lance, tell me, how did you know that Ginger’s the one?
Lance: (He grins.) Well, she was unlike any woman I’d ever met before. Gorgeous and sweet…and yeah, I might have a weakness for red hair. (Toys with a strand of his girlfriend’s wavy hair as she giggles.)
Devika: You’re actually leading quite different lives, aren’t you? What would you say you do have in common?
Ginger: It’s true that he’s a tech billionaire and I’m just me. But somehow it works.
Lance: She’s not kidding. I think it’s that we have the same values and share a similar sense of humor. But, listen, Ginger is selling herself short. Tell her about your dreams, sugar.
Ginger: (Smiles.) I’m hoping to make it as a singer, if I can.
Lance: (Kisses Ginger’s hand.) I have no doubts. She’s a fantastic dancer too.
Devika: Sounds promising. And Ginger, would you say you’re a typical redhead, character-wise?
Ginger: I’m not sure what that means. (Laughs.) If you’re talking about feistiness, I guess I’ve had my moments. Usually, I try to keep a level head. But if someone tries to hurt the one I care about, they’ll regret it.
Devika: Do you agree, Lance? How would you describe Ginger in three words? And yourself in three words too?
Lance: Kind, loyal and dynamic. She has this natural charisma that most people are drawn to. I think that’s why she’ll have no trouble winning over a music producer.
(He frowns, rubbing his chin.) For myself…my top words would be determined, protective, and hardworking.
Ginger: (Squeezes his hand.) He’s being modest. Lance is incredibly generous.
Devika: Thanks so much for stopping by, Ginger and Lance. I wish you all the best. *waves*

Tagline: With more attention than she ever imagined, how can she tell if this is real or a fantasy?
Chased by a group of angry men. Saved by quite a hunk.
This is not the résumé Ginger Halloway ever imagined having. But thanks to a miracle pill, which makes her size 22 body instantly sexy, that’s what happened.
Yet, now Lance Franklin is showing interest in her, and she can’t figure out if he really likes her for her, or if it’s just because of a bizarre drug.
And her wild bunch of friends, The Misfits…well, they’re always getting her into some interesting situations.
So, yep, business as usual. Except for the guy. What the hell should she do about him?
As for Lance, he believes he’s lucky to have found Ginger. But can he convince her they should go for it?
With some new attention from the hottest guy she’s ever met, Ginger can’t help but wonder…is this all too good to be true?
(CONTENT WARNING: Watch for foul language, steamy scenes, and a pesky yet messy ability to choke on your dinner while laughing. If you’ve come expecting just a lighthearted, slapstick romance, you may not get that here. The author approaches sensitive topics in the best way she knows how. Just be prepared for all the feels to be deeper than usual for this genre – an emotional romantic comedy. No unruly cliffhangers, HEA guaranteed.)
Themes: Body Positivity, Kindness Matters
