Welcome Robyn Neeley, Author of Destination Wedding With a Interview with Miles Payne



Hi everyone!
I'm so happy to have with me today my friend and fellow Crimson Romance sister, Robyn Neeley.  Robyn's debut novel, Destination Wedding was released 10 June 2013. I just loved this funny, fast past, charming romance. There is this certain towel incident in the hallway outside a hotel room that had me spewing my coffee and laughing till it hurt. Here is what the reviewers are saying about Destination Wedding.

·        Robyn Neeley pens a charming tale. I adored Destination Wedding and the memorable characters hidden behind the gorgeous cover.

·        This was a fast and fun read! It reminded me of a 1950s/60s romantic comedy with Doris Day and Rock Hudson.

·        Loved this mistaken identity rom-com! Fast-paced, clever, funny and romantic, this book is the perfect summer read! Highly recommend to all who love witty romances.

Robyn has asked me to give you a little peak into Destination Wedding. She invited one of her hilarious characters, Miles Payne to be interviewed by me. Miles is our heroine, Kate Ashby's assistant, and he had a front row seat of all that went on between Kate, the hero, Luke Cannon, and his identical twin brother, Drew. To set the stage, here is a brief blurb of Destination Wedding.

Wedding planner Kate Ashby’s fear of flying is eased by a sexy stranger and one slow lip lock that rockets her into another obit.
CEO Luke Cannon has just traded seats with his identical twin. Little did he know that an innocent kiss while pretending he was his brother would soon create havoc.

What happens in the air doesn’t stay up there. Once on tropical land, Kate believes that the handsome stranger who gave her the best kiss of her life is now her new client, Drew Cannon, fiancé to the beautiful and wealthy Lauren Kincaid. While Kate struggles with the intense feelings she thinks she has for Drew, Luke discovers Kate’s been hired to plan his brother’s destination wedding. He also realizes the initial sparks they shared 30,000 feet up are now mistakenly aimed at Drew. Can Luke get Kate to realize that the feelings she has are for him? He’s got forty-eight hours in paradise to try.


What Really Happened in the Air? An Interview with Miles Payne, Assistant to Kate Ashby in Destination Wedding by Robyn Neeley

Miles: 
“Nancy, Love! Aloha! Thanks for having me. I’m having so much fun talking about Destination Wedding. Have you read it yet? Was I your favorite character?”

Nancy:        
“Oh Miles, of course you were. There wouldn't be story without you. So, let’s get started. As Kate’s assistant and right hand man, I suspect you’ve got all the dirt on what really happened on that flight from New York City to Hawaii?”

Miles: 
“Oh, do I! Apparently instead of licking wedding invitation envelopes, my boss was licking other things way up there. What do you want to know?”

Nancy: 
“Let’s talk about Chapter One. We know that Kate was kissed silly by Luke Cannon who pretended to be his twin brother, Drew. Did she tell you what happened when she landed?”

Miles: 
“Not at first, but I knew something was up. She tried to deny it. Please. She wasn’t fooling me for a second. I knew from the silly grin on her face, the stains on her dress, and the evidence sticking out of her bag she’d gotten an invitation to join the Mile High Club. I was so proud of her!”

Nancy: 
“What did you think of Luke and Drew?”

Miles: 
“Idiots. (Laughs) I’m kidding. Luke’s great. He should have come clean from the very beginning. It caused all of us angst believing Kate made out with our new client.  I guess conflict sells books, and I wouldn’t be sitting here if my boss’s fear of flying hadn’t caused Drew to go insane that he forced Luke to switch seats with him.”

Nancy: 
“And what about Drew?”

Miles: 
“Honestly? We don’t care for each other. He’s annoyed that I’ve become close with his fiancée, Lauren. (Leans in and whispers). Robyn hinted to me earlier that Lauren and I might become roommates in the sequel. That will drive Drew over the edge. Ooooh I hope he reads this!”


Nancy: 
“Speaking of Lauren, you two got in a little bit of trouble on Waikiki Beach. What were you thinking?”

Miles: 
“I blame Kate for that. My marching orders from her were clear. SPF 4 for Lauren and no tan lines. No tiny bikini strap lines were going to appear near Lauren’s cleavage on my watch! How was I suppose to know she was allergic to the sun? She didn’t say anything—it probably also had something to do with our endless supply of  piña coladas and my actually not opening the bottle of suntan lotion. Kate’s forgiven me for my brief lack in judgment; although, I don’t think I’ll be assigned to the Pitt/Jolie wedding anytime soon.”


Nancy: 
“How Kate discovered that it was Luke that kissed her into another orbit on that flight and not Drew was quite brilliant, yes?”

Miles: 
“Well, I wasn’t there, but from what I’ve heard it was quite a scene. Kate’s lucky Lauren  didn’t drown her in the ocean! Honestly, I don’t know what Kate was thinking.”

Nancy: 
“Will you be planning Kate’s wedding?”

Miles: 
“She wouldn’t dare have anyone else do it. It’s going to be one spectacular party in New York City, and you’re all invited! So is Adam Levine if you can get word to him! (Robyn made me say that!)”
