What do you get when you combine a surfing billionaire, a globe-trotting businesswoman, and “The Wizard of Oz”?
O.E. Orton has a very large bank account and an even larger ego. Ever since he struck it rich, there’s nothing he can’t have, including a California beach house where he goes to surf. One night at a party, he makes an unusual wager that involves his pride, his money, his finesse with women, and surfing. He’ll be sorry.
Rebecca Moore specializes in international negotiations. She flies all over the world for her work and speaks many languages. But regardless of her language skills, she’s going to have a hard time communicating with O.E. Orton.
And what about “The Wizard of Oz”? Does it play an important part in their budding romance? Do they walk on the yellow brick road and visit the Emerald City? Do we meet Dorothy, the Wizard, the Witch, and even Toto? Yes!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After writing the first book in the “Westerley” series (“Executive Sweet”) I decided to try another romance with a slightly different angle. Where “Executive Sweet” has an erotic edge to it, this one has a more light-hearted edge, with “The Wizard of Oz” at its center.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
This book advances some of the characters in “Executive Sweet.” I enjoyed creating them and realized that they could have their own romantic adventure.
“Forgive me for being direct, but I can’t stand the whole ‘dating’ routine. So I figured I’d release some of the usual tension by bringing up that rarely mentioned thing: the question of the kiss at the end of the evening. Will I make the first move? Will you? Will we stand there in awkward silence as our faces draw closer, wondering who will finally dive in for that kiss? And then, of course, the big question—will the kiss be any good?” He shook his head and frowned. “So many questions, so much uncertainty.” His eyes bored into hers again, and she slid away from him on the wall, trying to make sure he wouldn’t take the kiss too soon.
He pressed his case. “You’re a businesswoman, so let’s get down to business. Let’s have that kiss, right now. I’ll give you the best kiss you’ve ever had in your life. If you don’t agree, I’ll leave you alone. But if you do agree that it’s a kiss like no other, you have to go out to dinner with me on Monday. How’s that?”
Sounds wonderful. He might be a huge mistake, but he bristled with a level of excitement that she had never experienced before. If she agreed, would he kiss her right there in the hallway? She felt a little embarrassed, but she couldn’t deny that she wanted to grab that chiseled jaw and kiss that arrogant mouth.
About the Author:
The Westerley books are my first novels. I did write two technical books, but they weren’t nearly as much fun.
After a lifetime of reading general fiction, I discovered romance at age 59, and fell in love with it. Now I fill my time reading and writing romance novels.
Also, I never drank whiskey before. But since I wrote characters who drink it, I became curious. Now it’s my favorite drink.
Life in Northern California is full of surprises, including these romance novels. I have been happily married for thirty years, and we have raised two wonderful children. I honestly wouldn’t trade places with anyone else, living or dead, real or imagined.
