Interview with Lacey Wolfe author of Wanted: Wife

Love, Again
a Valentine’s Day anthology
from Ruby Lioness Press
releases February 14, 2012.

Please join me in welcoming Lacey Wolfe to Love to Read Romance. 
Please share a short bio with us:
Lacey Wolfe has always had a passion for words, whether it’s getting lost in a book or writing her own. From the time she was a child she would slip away to write short stories about people she knew and fantasies she wished would happen. It has always been her dream to be a published author and with her two children now of school age, she finally has the time to work on making her dream come true.
Lacey lives in Georgia with her husband, son and daughter, their six cats and one black lab who rules the house.

Can you tell us more about Wanted: Wife?
Wanted:Wife was inspired by all cheesy romances out there. Darcy is out of a job and about to lose her apartment. She has been searching for a job but is down on her luck. Every morning she searches the help wanted ads, but this one morning she sees an ad that she thinks has to be a joke or else someone is more desperate than she is. Someone has an ad in the paper for a wife. Before she knows what she’s doing, she responds.

Steve is looking for a wife so he can keep the family business. His grandfather owns an apple orchard and Steve needs to find his queen for the orchard. But the only women he attracts are just after him for his money. So he decides to put an ad in the paper. When he gets a response from Darcy White he wonders if there is any way it could be the same Darcy he was in love with in highschool.

The two meet and find that they do know one another and they always had the hots for each other in high school but never acted on it. Now just might be that time to get their high school fantasies come to life.

Where did the idea come from?
Pretty much from any cheesy movie or book you’ve read where the whole idea is so far-fetched that you just fell in love with the story. I wanted this story to be just that.

What sort of research did you do for this book?
There wasn’t any research for this book, unless watching sappy love stories count.

Do you have a common theme or item that appears in each of your books?
I like women with attitudes. Though I just finished a work in progress where the heroine was a little weaker in the beginning but by the end she found her backbone.

Who has inspired you as an author?
I love to create stories. I’ve always had those voices you hear about from each author. Writing is something I’ve always done and just recently decided to take it more seriously.

Do you have any “must haves” with you while you’re writing?
A drink and candy.

How do you remember ideas that come to you at odd times?
That odd time is usually while I’m in the shower. I have several notebooks that I jot scenes down in.

Describe your writing in three words.
Sweet. Spicy. Romantic

What are some of your favorite books? Who are you reading now?
I love a good Jennifer Crusie or Janet Evanovich. I like fun and quirky romances that bring me in for the love and keep me entertained by the humor.

What's next for you?
I just had the second book in my Hot Bods series release. Its titled More Than Useful. The third book has been submitted so I’m in the game of patience as I wait for a response. I’m also working on a BDSM erotic romance that is so out of my norm that I’m having a lot of fun writing it.

Where can you be found online?
My website is

Do you have anything you'd like to ask our readers?
I think the Love, Again anthology is a great book full of many different authors. Have you ever found a favorite author from reading an anthology?


Wanted: Wife by Lacey Wolfe
Darcy White is between jobs and is about to lose everything she has. She reads the help-wanted ads every morning. Day after day, she fails at finding anything—that is, until one morning when she comes across an ad she finds intriguing. The help-wanted ad in the paper states that a man is looking for a wife. Before she knows what she’s doing, Darcy’s exchanging emails with him, agreeing to meet him for lunch.

Steven McDonald is looking for a wife in order to keep his family business, an apple orchard, as his grandfather told him that he couldn’t keep this orchard unless he got married. He gets the crazy idea to put a want ad in the paper. After a lot of nutty women respond, one e-mail comes through with a name that sounds very familiar: Darcy White. He was in love with Darcy in high school, but was too afraid to step away from the popular crowd to talk to her. He spent countless nights just thinking about her. Could this be his second chance?
From the moment they enter each other’s lives again, the chemistry is there. Steven believes that Darcy is even better than he remembered her. This is Darcy’s dream come true; she hopes that Steven might start to feel the same way about her as she feels for him.
