He wasn’t what she was expecting...
Derek Carmichael has harbored a secret crush on his best friend’s older sister for years, but she’s always been out of his reach. Now that Hannah is back in their hometown and newly single, suddenly the five-year age gap doesn’t seem so huge. But convincing her to see him as more than just the kid she used to know is another story.

Hannah Willmett can’t believe how grown-up Derek Carmichael has become. The troubled kid from her youth has turned into a sexy, successful TV celebrity, but Hannah’s wary of his player past and the rampant rumors connecting him to beautiful socialites. Still, she can’t help but give in when their attraction reaches a boiling point.

Trying to keep their fling a secret from her overprotective brother is one thing, but when Hannah finds herself unexpectedly expecting, her life is thrown upside down. She and Derek may be becoming parents together, but that’s no basis for a happily-ever-after.

Character Interview with Derek Carmichael from Unexpectedly Yours

Radio Interviewer: Today we are hosting Derek Carmichael, celebrity TV carpenter and sought after furniture craftsman, who’s taken time out from his busy schedule to answer some of our questions. Welcome to the show, Derek!

Derek: Thanks! It’s good to be here.

Interviewer: Derek, can you tell us how you became a carpenter and TV presenter?

Derek: When I was younger, I hung out a lot at my best friend’s house, and it was his grandfather, Grandpa Joe, who first taught me woodworking skills. I loved it from the very beginning and started my apprenticeship while I was still in high school. I moved to LA, started a business with a friend, and from there got asked to do a segment on a TV lifestyle show that became a semi-permanent gig.

Interviewer: You’ve been spotted hanging out with several gorgeous women yet you’re still single. What in your mind makes for the perfect partner?

Derek: Ah, that’s a tricky question. I don’t keep a list of requirements in my mind, you know. In my opinion it’s all about the chemistry; that’s something that can’t be faked, and without it, the relationship won’t work, even if all the imaginary boxes are ticked. But wait, let me just back up a second. I’m not looking for a relationship. I’m too busy with my furniture business, plus I have some family issues to take care off. So, yeah, no relationships for me.

Interviewer: Care to expand on these family issues?

Derek: No, I’d rather not.

Interviewer: Er, okay. Um, I know you just said you’re not looking for a relationship, but for all your female fans out there can you describe what your idea of a dream date would be?

Derek: Sure. We’re talking fantasy here, right? My dream date would be a quiet picnic down by the lake at a secret spot I know. We’d eat chicken salad and pecan pie, with some iced tea or wine. We’d go for a swim and then lie on a picnic rug and, well, I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.

Interviewer: Ooh, that sounds romantic. You’re sure about that no relationship thing?

Derek: Very sure.

Interviewer: So, pecan pie, huh? Is that your favorite pie?

Derek: Yep. Has been ever since I was fourteen.

Interviewer: Hmm, perhaps a secret way to your heart, then? All right, I can see from your expression you’re not going to answer that! Well, I guess that’s a hint for all your female fans. Ladies, get baking!

Derek: (laughs) Please, no.

Interview: (chuckles) I’m guessing you might be inundated with pecan pies now. Derek, thanks for sitting down and chatting with us.

Derek: Thanks for having me, and I’m wishing I didn’t mention the pecan pie thing.
