Meet 2019 Golden Heart Finalist Rosie Danan!!

Today we’re continuing our series of interviews with the Omegas, the 2019 (and final) class of Golden Heart Finalists. We’re delighted to welcome Rosie Danan, whose manuscript NEVER HAVE I EVER finaled in the Contemporary Romance (Long) category and will be available from Berkley/PRH in Fall 2020!!

Rosie Danan writes steamy, big-hearted books, articles, and tweets about the trials and triumphs of modern love. In her spare time, she enjoy jogging slowly to fast music, petting other people’s dogs, and competing against herself in rounds of Chopped using the miscellaneous ingredients occupying her fridge. As an East Coast transplant to Austin, TX, you can regularly find her, sweaty and happy, with a mouthful of taco. As child she appeared on the short-lived (and rather ill-received) television program Bloopy’s Buddies.

Here’s a blurb for NEVER HAVE I EVER:

Clara Wheaton has built her life around other people’s expectations.

The rich and powerful Wheaton family is infamous for their lack of impulse control, except for their careful daughter Clara. She’s never made a rash decision in her life, but can’t resist when her first love invites her to move in with him and shed the shackles of her suffocating blue-blood upbringing. She’s shocked when Prince Charming pulls a bait-and-switch, leaving her to share a three-month lease on a crumbling Los Angeles bungalow with an annoyingly charming stranger. Clara must hide the shameful circumstances that led to her sudden cross-country move. If the Greenwich gossip hounds get their hands on one more story about a Wheaton behaving badly, the family reputation she’s worked her entire life to restore will go up in flames.

 No one ever expected Josh Conners to amount to anything.

Against the odds, he’s made a name for himself in Hollywood entertainment—unfortunately, that name isn’t his own. His on-screen chemistry with his ex-girlfriend won him the hearts (and panties) of American women, but when his ex kicks him out and a power-hungry executive wants to turn his viral success into a million dollar payday, he finds himself back at square one—answering a Craigslist ad for a summer sublet. The last thing Josh needs while trying to decide whether to employ his prodigious talent for questionable means is for his uptight new roommate to find out how he earns his paycheck. But keeping secrets from Clara while they’re sharing a shower is easier said than done.  

I love that premise—“keeping secrets while they’re sharing a shower.” And you clearly have a great sense of humor! I’m not at all surprised that Berkley/PRH snapped this one up! Yay!

Since this is an L.A.-set book, I’m going to arrange some virtual beach chairs by the surf and invite everyone to get comfy while I ask some questions of Rosie Danan. (And, oh, look!! There’s my favorite taco truck!! Tacos on me!!)
