The Men of Machismo series revolves around nine friends who worked together in a male revue. Each book follows the life of a different former dancer seven years later. The Bad Decision Legacy is Will and Tonya’s story.
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.

About the Author:
Morgan K Wyatt writes steamy romances with a side of laughter under the name of Morgan Kay. 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.
Where are you from?
Originally Georgetown, Indiana, the one that’s the Southern tip of Indiana. There are four Georgetowns.
Tell us your latest news?
I’m releasing The Bad Decision Legacy, which is a start of a new series. I’m also releasing three other books this summer under different pen names.
When and why did you begin writing?
I wrote my first story in first grade because I thought the reading book stories were lame.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I had a poem published when I was fifteen and actually got paid.
What inspired you to write your first book?
My first book is out of print now. It was a western inspired by the endless western movies. I’m revising it for re-release this year.
Do you have a specific writing style
I used to be a panster, but discovered the practicality of outlining a book. It helps with pacing.
How did you come up with the title?
The Bad Decision Legacy was originally Exposed. I had to think about how Tonya got in so much trouble. She made a bad decision when she heard a former boyfriend was getting married. The bad decision took on a life of its own, which explains the legacy part.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Your friends will support you if you ask for help. Assistance also comes in unexpected packages too.
How much of the book is realistic?
Actually, a great deal since women face harassment or blackmail by former lovers. I also have Tonya in a company that is cutting personnel and everyone is on edge. Been there, done that.
The Milky Way Martini that I enjoyed in West Chester, Ohio and inserted it in the book. I also figured out how to make it in the process too.
What books have most influenced your life most?
As a child, I enjoyed Victoria Holt, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and Phillipa Gregory. Scarlett in Gone with the Wind made me realize women with flaws were much more interesting than perfect females. Now, I read all sorts of genres, although I prefer Linda Howard, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Brenda Novak for their realistic portrayals, emotional depth, and great plots.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I met Brenda Novak at Rom Com. She was super cool, keeps a tight writing schedule, has an involved family life and writes amazing books. She’s role model material.
What book are you reading now?
Night Thunder by Jill Gregory. I usually go through a book a week.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Darynda Jones and her Charley Davidson novels. I didn’t think I’d like reading about the grim reapers, demons, etc, but I enjoy it when Darynda tells the story.
What are your current projects?
I have three other books to release this summer including He Loves Me Not under Morgan K Wyatt pen name, Drop Dead Handsome by M K Scott, and the Faerie Lights series by Rayna Noire. I’m traveling in the name of research to Salem, Massachusetts and New Orleans.
What would you like my readers to know?
They could have their names on the back of any of my new releases as a reviewer. I usually go through the Amazon reviews and contact people to see if I can use a sentence from their review on the paperback version of my book. For their generosity, I send them a signed paperback copy.
