The Seduction of Kinley Foster, May 2016


Sometimes I worry about my characters. Actually, I spend a lot of time worrying about my characters. How can I not? I torture them for at least three-fourths of the pages in a book before giving them their happy ever after. In my Off The Wall Proposals series with Entangled, all of the books have the heroines name in the title, so I worry that my heroes feel slighted. I asked Jack, the hero in THE ATTRACTION OF ADELINE, if he feels slighted, and here is his answer:

Me: “Jack, I’m sure you’ve noticed that Adeline’s name is mentioned in the title, but yours isn’t. How does that make you feel?

Jack: “Are you kidding? With a unique name like Adeline, she needs the extra lime-light to be remembered. But my name is famous. JACK. I have like the best name ever for a hero.”

Me: “Really? How do you figure?”

Jack: “Have you not done your research? Jack is a famous name to give heroes. For instance: Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean. Jack Ryan in Clear and Present Danger. Jack Shephard in Lost. Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack Dawson in Titanic. Jack Stanfield in Firewall. Jack Torrance in The Shining. And that’s just a few.”

Me: “Wow. I had no idea. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised you’ve done the research into your name. That’s something your character would do.”

Jack: “I did more than research famous Jacks, I researched the actors who played famous Jacks. Did you know that: Jack Nicholson, Steven Seagal, Harrison Ford, Leonardo DiCaprio, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Douglas, Keanu Reeves, Matthew Fox, Keifer Sutherland, and Johnny Depp have all played the part of a famous Jack in movies and television shows?”

Me: “Nope. Didn’t know that. Why did you research the actors who played Jacks?”

Jack: “You know, in case THE ATTRACTION OF ADELINE becomes a Hallmark Channel movie, I wanted to be on top of all of my options on who should play me?”

Me: “Oooh, I would love for your and Adeline’s story to be a Hallmark Movie. That’s one of my favorite channels. Which actor did you decide on?”

Jack: “I wasn’t sure, so I asked Adeline. She thought we should go with someone fresh to play me. Someone hunky and cute and smart and funny.”

Me: “You left out nerdy.”

Jack: “Nerdy! Who are you calling nerdy?”

Me: “You are just a little bit nerdy, but in a very sexy way that women love.”

Jack: “Well, when you put it that way. Okay. Adeline’s supposed to be making me a list. You know her and her lists.”

Me: “Oh, I know. She’ll laminate it and everything. Maybe while we wait for her list, some of the readers could reply and give us an idea of who they think should play you in a future movie.”

Jack: “That’s a great idea. I can’t wait to see who they come up with.”

Who do you think could play the perfect Jack if THE ATTRACTION OF ADELINE hit the big screen? Convince me your actor is the best person to play Jack and you’ll win a $10 Amazon gift card.




The Proposal: Adeline Rigby will live with Accountant Jack Foster and pretend to be his fake fiancée for one month in order for him to seal a promotion to partner. In return, Accountant Jack Foster will intimately tutor Adeline Rigby in French before she leaves for Paris where she will fulfill her dream of attending Le Cordon Bleu.

The Terms:

1. Maintain distance. Three get-to-know-you dates before announcing their engagement will be tempting enough.

2. No kissing. Okay, fine. Three kisses. Maybe four. And neck kisses don’t count.

3. No touchy feely stuff. Or at least not too many public displays of touchy-feely stuff.

4. No sex.

5. All right, all right. One night of sex in order to be a believable engaged couple.

6. Two nights of mind-blowing sex to make sure first night wasn’t a fluke.

7. Absolutely, positively, no falling in love.

Re: Lisa Wells | Heroes Named Jack

To be honest, I have no idea... I have a hard time placing actors into roles.... I like to use the author's words to create the image of the character in my head!
(Colleen Conklin 6:51pm April 14)

Johnny Depp should be the first choice. He has the range.
(Kathleen Bylsma 7:23pm April 14)

Ryan Gosling. Just look how cute he his! https://s-media-
f3c4dc9.jpg Plus he totally looks like he could play a
smart, sexy, slightly nerdy accountant.
(April Kirkland 7:30pm April 14)

Patrick Dempsey.So cute.
(Judy Gregory 9:02pm April 14)

Eddie Redmayne is my choice for Jack. He is handsome yet a bit on the nerdy/smart side and he could definitely pass as a tutor/fake fiance to Adeline.
(Susan Coster 11:07pm April 14)

The only one that stuck in my head was Johnny Depp, but maybe someone new would fit better.
(Annetta Sweetko 9:37am April 15)

I vote for Chris Pratt. He could totally pull off the hunky and cute and smart and funny AND nerdy.
(Cheryl Castings 11:16am April 15)

Nathan Filion. Great.
(Sharon Berger 2:08pm April 15)

Chris Pratt would totally work. But Nathan Filion would be a good second choice too.
(Pam Howell 7:48am April 16)

How about Jesse Metcalf - I enjoy the Hallmark movies he's
been in.
(Diane Sallans 6:21pm April 16)

Alec Baldwin - He could make it believable AND funny.
(Elaine Seymour 7:14pm April 16)

I have no idea
(Jane Squires 3:07am April 17)

Love to read your book.
(Mary Tharp 1:41pm April 17)

Jared Padalecki
(Shelly Hart 2:22pm April 17)

Johnny Depp would be perfect for the part. He can be sexy, smart, funny, and nerdy all at the same time. He has played so many memorable characters.
(Bonnie Hometchko 10:25am April 18)

Sorry, but I don't have any idea who will be perfect.
(Anna Speed 5:55am April 19)

Haven't read the books so not a clue yet. But it has to be the right actor or it
will ruin the book
(Laura Gullickson 10:19pm April 19)

I think maybe James Franco as he has the emotional range for it and
he's also very nice to look at.
(Savannah Monfette 9:32pm May 3)
