I've got to admit--the title made me smile. I'm old enough to have fallen in love with all the Tammy movies (Tammy Tell Me True, Tammy and the Millionaire, Tammy and the Doctor). My favorite was Tammy and the Bachelor. Those movies whetted my appetite for romance, making me hungry for more. Sure, they were a little sappy and predictable. And I could go on about the standard plot that was basically the same in every movie--but I didn't really mean to write this blog about Tammy.
What I do want to know is if you caught the series The Bachelor this week? If you did, you saw the bachelorettes not only vying for the affection of the bachelor, but also for the chance to be a cover model with a three-book contract from Harlequin. How cool is that?
The most exciting part to me was getting to go behind the scenes of a cover shoot. I never realized how much chemistry was needed between the models to give those covers that special something that make them fit our stories so perfectly. Some of what should've been heat turned out to be only lukewarm at best, but during some of the shoots, I swear I could hear my TV sizzle. I know that the young woman who won the contract is a model by profession and maybe had a one-up on the others, but she and the bachelor were Hot with a capital H. I found myself wishing they would end up on the cover of one of my books.
Aside from the Harlequin connection, I found the show to be intriguing. Can a bachelor find true love out of a group of women hand-picked for optimal drama by studio executives? Maybe, but he'd have a much better chance if his storyline was being written by an Harlequin SuperRomance author. We could give him the perfect story to go with that cover.
So did you watch the episode? What did you think?
