Thanks to Night Owls for allowing me to visit, today ;)
Romcoms are definitely one of my favourite genres to read and write. There's nothing quite like laughing when you're not supposed to - getting 'the look' on the bus as you snort at a particularly funny piece of dialogue! Writing Dirty Tricks was probably the most fun I've had in creating a story so far. You see, I never planned on it being a romantic comedy, it just happened that way. The more I tried to make my characters conform, the more I'd find them getting up to even more mischief, whether I liked it or not. Eventually, I just went with it and started giggling along with their antics – adding my own personal experiences, too.
And if you would have asked me as I started writing this, who was the perfect hero for Cat – my heroine – I would be adamant it wasn't to be the hero she ended up with. I was convinced she needed a strong man who could handle her stubborn nature. Being British (like me), she's spirited, quirky and a little bit nuts – as confirmed when she pretends to be a ghost. Cat was actually supposed to end up with a tortured, brooding stud. In fact, Jay became so much better than I'd ever even planned. He morphed into the fun, hot, surfer guy who throws off his business suit at the earliest opportunity. Of course, he's still strong and stubborn, but he's not brooding.
Shows what the author actually knows, huh?
But then there's Elvis. He's the star of the show in my eyes. Elvis is the large, orange cat who's definitely made an impression on the readers. He was inspired by my own felines and will definitely be making an appearance in the second book in the One Wicked Weekend series.
Currently, Dirty Tricks is free at most vendors, so please pick up your copy!
I'd like to give a choice of book from my back list away as part of the contest as a thank you for Night Owls readers!

She wanted revenge. He wanted her.
Cat was desperate, but pretending to be a ghost to stop the renovation on the neighbouring manor house was a new low even for her. All she needed to do, though, was slow down the renovation and figure out a way to make the owner pay for stealing her family home years before. Simple.
Everything was perfect until a new guy arrived on site, turning her plans for revenge upside down, and her body to a puddle of lusty mush. But when she finds out the secret he's been keeping, will their attraction be strong enough to hold them together? Or will family ties tear them apart?
Warning: this story contains a large, orange cat called Elvis, a fake ghost called Cat, a sizzling hot romance, and it just may cause you to crack a smile.

Multi-published author, Xandra James, has always wanted to write romance books. Even when she was sneaking peaks at the hot bits, too young to fully appreciate them, she dreamt of writing her own.
Now, older and wiser, she's got the opportunity to project her slightly dark and wacky, British sense of humour onto others, whilst still writing the hot bits - bonus!
When not writing, Xandra is thinking of excuses as to why she shouldn't be doing the housework, looking after a husband and cats that refuse to pick up after themselves and climbing the mountain in her house that's affectionately called her tbr pile.
She currently holds the crown for Queen Procrastinator -something she's very proud of - so you can usually find her online, somewhere, when she really should be writing.
