Spotlight: Liza O’Connor and Oh Stupid Heart

1 Oh Stupid Heart Banner- Blog Tour 2nd

Leaving the sphere from whence you came is never easy.

Even if you don’t like your fellow sphere dwellers, there’s something to be said for the devil you know vs. unknown.

As you’ve probably gathered by now, Trent is part of the uber-rich Long Island Society and instead of settling down with his own kind, he’s fallen for his middle-class Executive Assistant.

Unfortunately, Trent’s people have no problem with destroying Carrie to ‘protect’ him from his own foolishness. There are plenty of acceptable young women in society who might marry him…if he’s really changed. Otherwise, he can become an old bachelor. What he will not do is become involved with the lower classes.

What the matrons of society do not want is another low class beauty queen floating about their ballrooms. And yes, a proper house still has a ballroom.

Thus, when an old matron named Madeline waylays him at the airport, Trent is forced to abandon Carrie and let her find her own way home, even after he told he’d pick her up. He has no choice, because he doesn’t dare let Carrie meet this viper. The old matron would rip Carrie into shreds in less than a minute.

Trent hated abandoning Carrie at the airport, but he had no choice. He had to protect her from Madeline.

Old Matron

Here’s an excerpt:

Trent looked outside the limo window, and gathered his bearings. Five more minutes and he’d be rid of the woman.

“You do look out of sorts. I will have Charles pour you a drink when we get home.”

No way in hell would he endure Madeline the whole damn night. “I have matters to attend to tonight.”

She waved him off. “I’m sure they can wait.”

“No, they can’t.”

She sighed heavily. “Then you force me to have our talk here.”

“Talk about what?” The alarms in his head made him want to jump from the moving vehicle.

“Talk about the serious mistake you are making becoming involved with a midget from New Jersey.”

And there it was. The disastrous scene she alluded to at the airport. Someone had told her about Carrie. And he had a good idea who.

“Have you been talking to Coco recently?”

“I have. She is most concerned over your obsession with this young girl.”

“I gather we are discussing my employee, Carrie, who lives in New Jersey, but is not a midget, nor is she underage, which your last statement implied.”

“That name sounds correct.”

Coco2

“Rest assured, whatever Coco told you is a lie. Carrie was my EA, but recently, due to Coco’s unfounded jealousy, I made Carrie our change specialist and sent her to train on the West Coast.”

“Then she’s not your mistress?”

“Absolutely not.”

Madeline gripped his chin and turned his face to her. “I want the truth.” He would have lied to protect Carrie, but in this case he could tell the truth. “I swear on my mother’s grave I have never had sex with my employee.”

Close call, but since both he and Carrie want to take their relationship to the next level, how long can they keep the old viper from inserting her claws back into their life?

He really needs to escape society, but how is that even possible? It’s not like he can pick up and move his business. All his customers are in New York City.

      And here’s the odd part. Both Worst Week Ever and Oh Stupid Heart are unique. No one else has published a book under them. I was shocked. They are fun. And if you don’t have a laugh out loud fun time, then I have failed.
