We’ve seen (and loved!) a couple of her books before – Fiancé by Friday and Single by Saturday – so I am beyond thrilled that we have Catherine Bybee with us today to answer a few questions, show us her newest book … AND giveaway some fantastic prizes!
What do you like best about writing romances?
CB: I think it would be easier to answer the opposing question. I love every part of writing, from the creation of characters, stories, plots…to publishing the books…to meeting my readers. I love falling in love with all my heroes…and having crushes on my heroines.
What is your favorite romantic story (movie/book, fact/fiction)?
CB: Romancing the Stone is one of my all time favorite movies. I didn’t know when I first saw the film that I would one day be Joan Wilder. But… yeah. I’m Joan without the typewriter.
If you could be any romantic character, who would it be and why?
CB: Of my books? Oh, that’s easy. I’d be Dakota in a heartbeat. Wait… Or Samantha from Wife by Wednesday… yeah, a rich duchess? Wait…Gwen from Fiancé by Friday…cuz NEIL! Oh, man that man! Of course Monica’s man owns his own planes, and flys them. Hmmm… this is harder than I thought.
Which of your characters/books was the most fun to write?
CB: I actually think the bad guys in all my books are the most fun to write. I love exploring the dark minds of my characters.
If you weren’t a writer and could be anything you want, what would it be?
CB: An actress. I live to entertain, enjoy the spotlight. But I need to be an uber rich actress who is grounded.

by Catherine Bybee
Montlake Romance, Contemporary
November 04, 2014, First Edition
Paperback & Kindle
The touching and heartwarming fourth novel in the wildly popular Not Quite series from New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee.
Romance author Dakota Laurens believes that happily-ever-afters exist only between the covers of her sexy novels. But to her surprise, she finds a real-life hero when she meets a handsome emergency room doctor. The outspoken author feels an instant and intense attraction to Dr. Walt Eddy, and the feeling is mutual. When the globetrotting doctor pulls a disappearing act on Dakota, she’s prepared to write him off…until fate brings a blindsiding twist to her story.
Still scarred from a past tragedy, Walt may have disappeared on Dakota, but now he’s determined to win her back. For the first time in years, he knows he’s ready for a new chance at love. Yet between Dakota’s doubts and two sets of meddling parents, can the once-blissful couple finally create the bright, loving future they desperately want?
PRAISE FOR NOT QUITE FOREVER
