#OBRT #Western #Romance Guest Post - 10 Things You Didn’t Know About @MerryFarmer20

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Merry Farmer
1) My earliest childhood memory is of falling into a pond as my dad was trying to take a picture of me.  I was about 4 years old and the reason I fell in was because he kept telling me to step back a little bit, step back a little bit, step back a little bit, and I finally got annoyed and took a giant step back!
2) I have a LOT of Indian friends and they all swear up and down that I was Indian in a former life.  That could explain my love of Bollywood and Indian fashion, and maybe my aversion to heat.
3) I have an aversion to heat.  Anything over 80 degrees makes me feel miserable.  I love the sun, but I would rather look at it from inside of air conditioning.  I also can’t sleep unless the temperature drops below 65 degrees at night.
4) I love cricket!  It’s the best sport in the world.  And yes, I’m American and a girl.  Although this could also explain why my Indian friends think I was Indian in a past life.
5) I still have the teddy bear, “Bear Bear”, that was made for my Mom as a baby shower gift for me on my bed.  I used it as a pillow when I was a teenager so I could get away with still sleeping with a teddy bear.
6) I have a masters degree in theater, but I couldn’t act my way out of a paper bag if I had to!  I specialized in directing.  I can tell you exactly what to do on a stage and can organize a bunch of techies to make thing look awesome, but I can’t act.  I can’t even tell a convincing lie.
7) When I was in college, I ate the same thing for dinner every night: a plain baked chicken breast, broccoli, and French fries.  I figured that if I was going to be cooking for myself, I could cook whatever I wanted, and if I wanted the same thing every night, who was going to stop me?
8) I have thick, curly hair that works fabulously for 19th century hairstyles.  That Gibson girl up-do?  I can do that, piece of cake.  Only I live in a time where the fashion is for long, flat-ironed hair, which is one thing my hair CAN’T do.  There is no justice in the world.
9) Over the last few years I’ve been losing my taste for chocolate.   I still like it now and then, but I just don’t love it and crave it the way I used to.  These days I crave Brussels sprouts.  No joke!
10) I love driving, especially long car trips by myself.  I love them so much that several weeks ago I drove 17 hours from Philadelphia to Halifax, Nova Scotia just because.  It was awesome!
Eric Quinlan was born a cowboy and a rancher and intends to die a cowboy and a rancher. But when his ranch is in danger of failing, he travels to the wilds of London looking for a business deal to save it. What he finds there are stuffed shirts, odd manners, and a damsel in distress.
Amelia Elphick’s life is over. She may have been born a lady, but when she finds herself jilted by a lover who leaves her pregnant and refuses to marry her, she seems destined for a life on the streets. When her employer’s rough but handsome houseguest, Eric, offers to rescue her from ruin, she has no choice but to say yes, even if it means moving halfway around the world.
But Amelia finds herself saying yes to more than a ticket west. What starts with a harmless lie tangles Amelia and Eric in a web of desire and deceit that exposes passions and turns their worlds upside-down. Eric believes Amelia holds the key to saving his beloved ranch and giving him the family he always wanted, but can he save her from the demons of her past without losing himself in the process?
