Harper Impulse Fortnight Guest Post: Romy Sommer

In the run-up to #HIFortnight I’ve written a whole bunch of blog posts, and I must tell you: it’s hard to come up with post after post of insightful commentary on my novels. There are only so many posts you can do on your character’s motivations and conflicts, and how they overcome them, before it starts to sound like a school essay!

And then I realised: I don’t have to be insightful and deep. Sometimes we just read (and write!) Romances because they’re FUN. Because when you write Romance novels you get to spend hours on Pinterest surfing for your heroine’s clothing.

So this blog post is going to be fun and completely un-insightful, and I’m going to show you the dresses my heroine Nina wears in Not a Fairy Tale.

Nina Dress 1

First up is Nina’s Oscar After Party dress. This is the one she’s wearing at the start of the book, when she has a wardrobe malfunction and Dom rides in to her rescue. The dress in the picture is of the Amara Royal wedding dress from designer Maggie Sottero. Then we have Nina’s casual outfit for her trip to San Onofre State Beach – that moment when we finally learn the secrets of her past:

And finally, the dress she wears to the Red Cross Fundraiser at the crisis point of the novel. Let’s face it, if your life is going to fall apart, you should at least be wearing designer

And the award goes to…

Not Nina Alexander that’s for sure.

With her best gracious loser face firmly in place, Hollywood’s hottest starlet is hoping to end her evening of disappointment with a graceful exit stage left. Only an unexpected proposal and an awkward wardrobe malfunction mean that this is certainly going to be a night to remember… for all the wrong reasons! So what girl would resist the gorgeous Dominic Kelly coming to her rescue?!  Especially when he’s whisking her out of the paparazzi’s prying eyes on the backof his motorbike – and wearing a tux to rival James Bond!

Nina soon realizes that the only way to recover from such a scandal is to toughen up and snag the role of the decade in the year’s hottest YA screen adaptation. Who better to train her than her very own professional stuntman?

Getting up close and personal with Dom will take Nina well out of her comfort zone – both professionally and in her closely scrutinized private life.  But this A-list couple know only too well that’s it not all happy ever afters in Hollywood…

About Romy Sommer

I've always written stories for myself but didn't even think of being an author until I realized that being over thirty and living in a fantasy world was a little odd. Writing those same stories for other people makes it a lot more acceptable!
By day I dress in cargo pants and boots for my not-so-glamorous job of making movies but at night I come home to my two little Princesses, and I get to write Happy Ever Afters. Since I believe every girl is a princess, and every princess deserves a happy ending, what could be more perfect?
Though my heart lies in Europe, I'm not too good with the cold, so I live in sunny South Africa.

Thank you to Romy for taking the time to write this post, you can also read my review of Romy’s book To Catch A Star here.
