Boys of Bishop, book #2



            Perfect for readers of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s second novel in her exciting new series—The Boys of Bishop—features an irresistible romance and unforgettable characters in a page-turning story that delivers equal parts emotion and humor . . . with a little edge to boot. 

As the daughter of a wealthy politician, Ashley Montgomery has had enough of her parents’ expectations for her future and is going her own way, volunteering to work at a refugee camp in Africa. But her act of charity turns dangerous when she takes a boat trip and is abducted by Somali pirates. Enter Brody Baxter, who was a bodyguard for the Montgomery family ten years ago and doesn’t think twice about coming to Ashley’s rescue. Handsome and tough, Brody has always done what needed to be done. So he swoops in, saves Ashley, and brings her to a place where she can rest and recuperate without the glare of the press and her demanding family: Brody’s small hometown of Bishop, Arkansas. But Ashley soon realizes that she’s not the only one in need of healing. 

Holed up with Ashley in a tiny apartment over his brother’s bar in Bishop, Brody is tempted and torn in ways he never anticipated. Beautiful Ashley, vibrant despite her ordeal, fearless enough to love him beyond his wall of self-punishment, is now determined to save him. But with a little faith and a lot of love, they just may find happiness in each others’ arms.

Let's Learn a Little About Molly:

What type of book have you always wanted to write?
 Romances!! It's all I've ever wanted to write. Now that I have kids I think it would be fun to write some books for them. Especially since Middle Grade books right now are just so imaginative.

Top 3 things on your bucket list?
Wow, you know I've never thought of this. I'm not really a bucket list type of person I guess. I'd like to learn how to play tennis really well. Travel to all the World Cup Rugby tournaments with my family… hmm….I need to keep thinking about this.

How did you get the idea for this particular novel?
Part of this novel was inspired by reading a book called Hostage about an English couple's year long captivity with Somali Pirates. Part of it was inspired by my cousins who work in hospitals and schools across Africa. And part of this book was inspired by those romances that have the hero and heroine locked up in a cabin during a snow storm. Only there's no snow storm and the cabin in an apartment above a bar.

What is your favorite scene in your new release?
 I love all the scenes between Brody and his father.I found those really emotional to write. I love the scene between Sean and Cora during his menu reveal party - I loved their chemistry. But truthfully - I loved the sex scenes between Brody and Ashley. I found those really tender and powerful and very hot.

What are you working on now and when can we expect it to be available?
Well, I'm working on a spin off from the Boys Of Bishop series. But until then you have the REST of the Boys of Bishop coming out this summer. Between the Sheets in August and Indecent Proposal in October. So, there's lots to keep us busy.

What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I love to be at the beach with my family. I love to travel. I love to read.

What is one interesting fact about you that readers don’t know? 
I'm an American living in Canada? Hmmmm…. I once lived in a vegetarian nudist colony by accident…

 When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
 Always. I'd say right around the time I was reading the Little House on The Praire books… so 8?

What is your writing process?
Tortured, mostly. Full of angst and brief periods of glory. No, my process is pretty straightforward. I write while the kids are at school so from 9-3. I try to get 2000 words done a day, sometimes more. Sometimes less. If I get stuck I walk my dog. I will say inevitably in every book there's a good long chunk I'm sure it's terrible. I love to edit more than write and I love love love brainstorming.

If you could be anything BUT a writer, what would you be?
An Olympic Beach Volley Ball player. What? You said anything, right?
