The Valentine Challenge by Marisa Cleveland: Character Interview: Entangled Publishing Tour Stop


Here's Stacey Bradford, leading female character in The Valentine Challenge by Marisa Cleveland. Let's hear what she had to say in response to a few questions from moi.  Welcome Stacey!
What was the scariest moment of your life?
I was the assistant branch manager for a bank, and I was covering for one of my employees, a teller. A man robbed me at gun point, and I was too traumatized to return to work.
 If you could apologize to someone in your past, who would it be?
My coworkers for letting them down. I hid in my friend Frannie's house, and even after several months, I couldn't return to my job. It all worked out though, because indirectly through Frannie, I met Marshall.
 Who should play you in a film?
 Macy Beckett, author of Sultry with a Twist OR Natalie Portman.
Tell us about your favorite restaurant.
Sushi Samba on Lincoln Road! Full bar, party all night long, the tri-cultural restaurant serves a blend of Japanese, Brazilian, and Peruvian cuisine.
What one word best describes you?
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I hate to walk into any room alone.

Stacey Bradford believes in love, but when her hot boss, Marshall Royce, decides to close her best friend’s flower shop – days before Valentine’s Day! – Stacey declares war.

Intrigued by Stacey’s devotion to her friend, the hearts and flowers holiday, and belief in true love, Marsh issues a challenge – prove love exists or deliver the closing documents to her friend herself.

Stacey never could resist a challenge, but when Marsh makes Valentine’s Day the deadline for their deal, Stacey must decide how far she’s willing to go for love.

Marisa Cleveland loves to laugh, hates to cry, and does both often. As a writer, she writes. Every day. Perhaps because she married her best friend, her adult romance novels focus on playfully naughty relationships developed through friendship and family-oriented values. She loves to connect with other writers and readers.

Personally, I think Macy's film career is underrated and she'd be awesome in that role! ;)
