Hi there, book lovers! I am happy to welcome back to BLI romance author Barbara Wallace, whose previous novel Weekend Agreement you might remember that I loved! Barbara stops by today to answer my questions and tell you about her latest release The Billionaire’s Fair Lady, a modern Cinderella/My Fair Lady romance, doesn’t it sound wonderful? So read on, you could even win a copy! ;-)
Stella: Hi Barbara, welcome back to Book Lovers Inc! Can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Barbara: Not much to tell. I think my characters live far more exciting lives. I live in New England with my romantic hero – my husband of 23 years. We have one son. He’s currently a freshman studying Criminal Justice and Nutrition at the University of Rhode Island (Go Rhody Rams.) He recently also announced he’s signing up for ROTC, and committing himself to a …
It has come to our attention (thanks Amanda for pointing it out) that lately there has been a real billionaire hero boom in romance novels. No, of course I’m not saying this is something new, wealthy, obscenely rich, exotic heroes were always à la mode for category romances, it’s only that in the past couple of weeks we have read novel after novel featuring one of them (like Weekend Agreement, The Marriage Bargain, Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire just to name a few). So we wondered what is it about rich heroes that makes them such a popular choice?
Nina Croft author of Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire even asked readers for their opinion and here are some of their answers:
Gaby: I think it’s because usually money gives a man power, and women don’t like powerless …
Hi there, book lovers! It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you romance author Barbara Wallace. She’s stopped by BLI today to talk a bit about her award-winning contemporary romance, Weekend Agreement (which I loved! – check out my review here), including the book’s long journey through many incarnations to its excellent present form. Please show Barbara a warm welcome!
Stella: I’ve read on your site about your journey to becoming a published author and saw that A Weekend Agreement is the Golden Heart winner manuscript you submitted in 2007. Can you tell us about how the story came to be back then and why it only got published now? Has it changed much compared to the original prize winning version?
Barbara Wallace: It’s apropos that, the week they announce the Rita and Golden Heart finalists, I’m writing about my Indulgence release, Weekend Agreement.

Cynical billionaire Daniel Martinetti works hard; plays harder and has one ironclad rule. Never trust a woman. Bad news for historian Charlotte Doherty who shows up at exactly the wrong time. Like every other woman in Daniel’s life, Charlotte wants something from him–the deed to her family farm. Daniel agrees, but only if he gets something in return: Charlotte’s company for the weekend!
The property is Charlotte’s only link to the mother she never knew. Desperate to keep her history alive, she’ll accept Daniel’s indecent proposal, but not without a few terms of her own. Namely, a propriety clause. No flirting. No kissing. …
