Silhouette Books invited Nicole to write the sixthand finalbook in their Marrying the Boss's Daughter continuity series (connected books written by different authors.) The series is set in Bostonvery close to Nicole's homeand the heroine lives and works very close to Nicole's husband's office. It was a blast for Nicole to write about a familiar locale. Half of Nicole's book is set in Reno, so that also gave her the opportunity to explore Lake Tahoe, drive around Reno, and then do a little gambling of her ownall in the name of research, of course.
About the Marrying the Boss's Daughter continuity series:
Here's the premise: Lloyd Winters, the CEO of Wintersoft, Inc., is desperate for his recently-divorced daughter Emily to marry someone at the company. Knowing he won't listen to her protests, because he truly believes this is best for Emily, Emily conspires with Lloyd's secretary, Carmella, to find girlfriends and/or wives for the six unmarried vice presidents at the company.
The series ran from September 2003 through February 2004. A different author penned each of the connected books, and one was released each month. Nicole's book, One Bachelor to Go, is the culmination of the series. You don't need to read all the bookseach one stands alonebut Nicole's characters make appearances in each of the other books, since the heroine of Nicole's book is none other than Emily Winters.
