Sara Daniel and I are pub-mates at Decadent Publishing, and we both have One Night Stand-themed novellas that just came out. It's only fair for us gals to scope out each other's men, so I've snagged the hero from her new release over for an interview. Rob Wellington's a busy guy, so I'll keep this short and sweet.
1. Hi Rob, come over here on the sofa and put your feet up. What would you like to drink--tea, coffee, wine, ...scotch?
Scotch. Actually, any kind of whiskey will do.
2. So what does a movie director do, exactly? Can you describe your typical day?
As a movie director, I’m responsible for bringing a story to life in a way to will resonate with viewers, entertain them for a couple hours, and hopefully give them a broader perspective on the world. In reality, I spend way too much time dealing with high-maintenances actors and actresses obsessed with stardom, regardless of how many people they have to step on to get there… Pass the whiskey, please.
3. Here you go. I heard you've been to a rather eventful wedding recently--your brother’s? What juicy details are you at liberty to divulge?
I arrived in town on what was supposed to be the eve of my brother’s wedding. I planned my entire movie production schedule around the date, so I could be there, only to discover it had been called off. After a little digging (and a lot of whiskey), I further discovered the maid of honor had been doing most of the wedding planning. It didn’t take much to figure out she wanted my brother to herself. Well, she’s going to have to go through me first, and believe me, I won’t be so easy to fool.
4. On the topic of weddings--what are your views on marriage in general? Is there still such a thing as Happily Ever After?
If you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty cynical. Everyone I meet wants the power and fame I can help them achieve. They don’t care about me. And if they find someone who has more of both, well, then they’re not interested in me. So, yeah, in theory I think marriage should be for love and the big Happily Ever After. But good luck finding anyone pure enough to achieve that kind of perfection.
5. Okay, then....Can you describe your "perfect girlfriend?" If you ran into her--say...on a blind date--what do you think would happen?
I suppose the “perfect girlfriend” would have a pure motivation and would like me for me and not want my money or fame. Does such a woman exist? I sincerely doubt it. The odds that I would meet her on a blind date—well, that’s absolutely ludicrous. If by some miracle I did, though, I’d be a fool to let her get away.
6. Oh dear, it looks like you have to run. One parting question--would you ever consider having a one night stand with a total stranger?There are girls out there who would like to know...
Being in the limelight, a guy can’t be too careful. Just because a woman’s a stranger to me, she likely knows all too well who I am and is hoping to propel her own acting career by association. Girls, find someone else. I’m not interested in being used.
Famous last words. I'd very much like to thank Rob for dropping by. My most recent "man" (Kal) is being interviewed over at Sara's blog as we speak. If you have a moment, please pay him a visit.
Also, Sara is running a Rafflecopter giveaway with a $10 Amazon gift card and two Captivating the CEO keychains as prizes. I would embed the code, but Wordpress and Rafflecopter don't play nice so an extra click is required:

He might be out of her league, but she’s willing to risk it all for one night.
Believing Sabrina responsible for breaking up his brother’s wedding, Rob sets out to stop her from scamming her way into the groom’s bed—even if he has to take his brother’s place. The last thing he expected to discover was a woman he could love and hold for the rest of his life—if he can convince her that he wants more than one night….
