Married in the morning…
Professional heartbreaker Mike Worth thrived on the chase—and dancer Morgan Collins represented the ultimate prize. But there was no way he was going to throw away his single-man status…not even for an elusive redhead with sparkling eyes and mile-long legs. So how did he let one drunken Vegas night end with I do instead of hell no?
Morgan’s life revolved around her career and she had no intention of letting a man interfere—even if Mike made her question all her rules about love. At his urging, she reluctantly agreed to give their spur-of–moment marriage a chance. But once their trial-honeymoon ended, would she choose to follow the dance and leave her unforgettable husband behind?
SKY: Welcome, Diane!
DIANE: Thank you so much for inviting me here to chat about my last Take a Chance, TAKE ME. This book was so much fun to write for me!
SKY: My pleasure. I absolutely love hearing that you had fun writing this book. When an author says that then there’s little doubt readers will have just as much fun reading it! That said, you have me super curious about, Take Me, so let’s chat it up! What inspired you to write this book?
DIANE: Well, I love Mike. He was in PLAY ME, and he’s such a fun character. I had already been debating writing his story, and then my editor called me and said, “You HAVE to write me Mike’s book. I have the best idea for it, too!”
From there, we plotted and chatted and the rest is history! A few weeks later, his book was written!
SKY: How did you come up with the title?
DIANE: Without talking too deeply, there’s a crazy night in Vegas, and they do something…insane for Mike. And the term TAKE ME comes into play quite nicely. ;)
SKY: What made you choose the main setting for your book?
DIANE: All the other books revolve around Vegas, so it kind of had to take place there, too. BUT I chose Vegas originally because crazy crap happens there, and that’s what I needed for some of the books in the series. ;)
SKY: If you could spend an hour in real life with one of your characters, who would it be and why?
DIANE: Mike because he’d be HILARIOUS.
SKY: What sort of personality does your hero have?
DIANE: He’s a guy’s guy, to put it simply. Loves women but doesn’t want to settle down. Not a whole lot of dirty baggage. He just likes being…well, Mike!
SKY: What sort of personality does your heroine have?
DIANE: She’s very independent and has a lot of goals in her life that don’t include settling down. Once again, she’s not tortured or anything—just busy!
SKY: Did you enjoy writing one scene above all the rest? If so, share.
DIANE: Hmm, yes! The morning after THE NIGHT. I had a whole lot of fun playing with their reactions and how they would be thinking on that particular morning. But, honestly, this book was just so much FUN all around. I’m not kidding! I had a blast.
SKY: How long have you been writing? How long have you been published?
DIANE: I started writing in January 2009, and I had by first book come out in October 2011. It’s been a fun, crazy journey! I couldn’t be happier!
Thank you so much for letting me come here and chat about TAKE ME.
SKY: You’re very welcome, Diane. This book sounds great! It’s definitely going on my TBR list.

Diane Alberts has always been a dreamer with a vivid imagination, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she put her pen where her brain was, and became a published author. Since receiving her first contract offer, she has yet to stop writing. Though she lives in the mountains, she really wishes she was surrounded by a hot, sunny beach with crystal clear water. She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her four kids, a husband, a cat, and a Senegal parrot. In the rare moments when she’s not writing, she can usually be found hunched over one knitting project or another.
She is a multi-published, bestselling author with Entangled Publishing, Swoon Romance, and Decadent Publishing. She has, as of this date, four books with Entangled Publishing, one book with Swoon Romance, and five older books with Decadent Publishing.
