THE BAD DECISION LEGACY
The Men of Machismo #1
Released May 12th, 2016
Sleeping Dragon Press
Tonya’s psychotic ex is stalking her. Not the best time to meet men, still her best friend begs her to show up for blind date dinner. Her plan includes the meet and greet, then heading home. Of course, she never expected a man who sent every hormone in her body into high alert. Will looked like her next bad decision.
Will’s work as a divorce lawyer included discouraging embittered women from ramming their soon to be exes with the car or setting fire to their husband’s latest girlfriend. No wonder he fell hard for Tonya. The first woman he met with no agenda, well almost none. It’s obvious Tonya is knee deep in trouble, but refuses to ask for help. Instead of running the other way, he contemplates dashing into the tornado she refers to as her life. With any luck, he might survive.

A quick scan revealed he was in his business attire, minus the suit jacket. His loosened tie and undone top button announced he was ready to leave work behind for the day. He held out his empty hand. “Hi, I’m Will, Will Robinson.”
Tonya gave his hand a vigorous shake remembering from her business training that a weak handshake always decreased the client’s confidence in your ability. “Hi, Will Robinson. Wasn’t your family trying to get to Alpha Centauri?” The quip may have been ill-advised, but his name brought up memories of an old science fiction show sometimes featured in black and white reruns. It also helped cover her surprise that a simple touch jumpstarted a chemical reaction, one she’d considered out of commission.
Will kept her hand a tad longer than needed, while he smiled with his eyes. “Ah, we weren’t that Robinson family. Mine was the one that hadn’t seen the show and didn’t understand why naming me Will was not a kindness.”
Tonya found herself grinning back at the witty male. “Did the other kids pick on you?”
“Not too much, but there was this one female who gave me a hard time, and I didn’t even know her name.” He nodded toward the front door where Lynne stood waiting.
She almost asked him what grade that was until she realized he was referring to her. “Oh, her. The name’s Tonya Smiley.”
Her last name embarrassed her. It was such a cute name. Why couldn’t she have an ordinary name like Tyler or Brooks? To push past the inevitable remarks about her being smiley or having a beautiful smile or even her name suiting her, she went defensive. “Why were you sneaking around eavesdropping on our girl talk?”
Her abrupt question triggered Lynne’s coughing. In between coughs, she managed to mutter, “Watch it.”
Will threw his hands up over his head, one still wrapped around the neck of the wine bottle. “You got me. I’m guilty. I snuck out the side door that Marc showed me to retrieve the wine I forgot. The two of you were deep into conversation. I didn’t think it was my place to interrupt, but when I felt your outfit was being criticized, I had to say something.”
Q & A with Morgan Kay
What books/authors have influenced your writing?
Catherine Coulter, Linda Howard, Amanda Quick/Jayne Castle are a few. Margaret Mitchell’s Scarlett in Gone with the Wind blew me away because she was a mean girl and still got to be the main character. Catherine Coulter and Linda Howard are both mistresses of suspense. I love Jayne Castle/Amanda Quick for dialogue and characters.
Tell us something you hate doing. Why?
Cleaning the bathroom, probably because it was always my chore as a child. It seems like I’ve never got out of this particular job.
Share a funny incident in your life.
I try to take at least one belly dancing class in the summer. Last year, I took sword dancing where I balanced an actual scimitar on my head. I left class with my sword on the front seat and still in costume. I was speeding down an unknown road when I was pulled over by a young state trooper. I stopped because I thought he wanted to go around me. No such luck. He asked me if I knew I was speeding. I told him, “Yes, I did notice that’s why I slowed down.” I didn’t get a ticket. He didn’t ask me about the sword on the front seat, but I did get a police escort almost all the way home, which probably ticked off everyone behind us.
What's your pet peeve?
Buying a pet without considering the care involved, then trying to dump the pet at the shelter.
When you are in writer mode, music or no music? If music do you have a playlist
I discovered I pay too much attention to the music. I write faster in silence. Although, sometimes I do use gamma tones videos on YouTube that help with creativity.
Who was your favorite hero/heroine.
Not sure how to take this question so I’ll give you several answers. In literature, my favorite character was Dr. Watson. He balanced out Sherlock Holmes and often rescued him.
On television, I like Rick Castle on the television show, Castle, because he always does things he shouldn’t, gets in trouble, and somehow manages to extract himself from the mess.
In my own books, I have a fondness for Donna in The Painted Lady Inn Mysteries because she’s blunt and does exactly what she wants, well, most of the time.
Have you ever had one character you wanted to go one way with but after the book was done the character was totally different.
Simpson in Love or Deception was supposed to be a secondary character. I had to go back and rewrite the book because he became the character that ties together the entire Suspicious Circumstance series.
When I started reading this book, I wonderd, the start was slow and yet funny. The more pages I flipped through I found myself totally fascinated by this Story. Tonya story wove through a stalker a new boyfriend, who honeslty would be any girls dream. At the times the story made me laugh and at times it had me on the edge of my seat. Seeing her grow and begin to live was great, even managing to escape her stalker. Great story plot and well written, kept me on the edge of my seat till the last page... Thank you to Tasty Book Tours for giving me the opportunity to read & review The Bad Decision Legacy.

The wisecracking heroines and hunky heroes are similar to the ones in her mainstream novels, but in the Steamy Interludes series, the bedroom door is left open. Real life issues, humor, dogs are also staples in Morgan Kay romances.
