Indecent Proposal (Boys of Bishop #4) by Molly O'Keefe - Blog Tour


September 2014
Boys of Bishop, book #4

Perfect for readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s gritty and sensual tale of passion and politics features the brother of the heroine from the author’s beloved novel, Never Been Kissed. He’s a driven man who refuses to be distracted—until he meets a beautiful bartender who just may change his life.
With his chiseled jaw and his thick blond hair, Harrison Montgomery was born to lead. Four generations of Montgomery men have served the state of Georgia and now he’s next in line. Harrison, though, is driven to right wrongs: namely to clean up the political mess left by his father’s greed and corruption. But Harrison must first win his congressional bid, and nothing can get in his way—not even an angel who served him whiskey and gave him a shoulder to lean on and a body to love for a night. Problem is, she’s pregnant. Scandal is brewing and there is only one solution: marriage.
Damage control? Ryan Kaminski can’t believe that a cold, calculating political animal now inhabits the body of the emotionally vulnerable stranger who’d given her the most unforgettable night of her life. Really, she doesn’t want anything from Harrison, except to be left alone to have her baby in peace. But Ryan is broke, jobless, and essentially blackmailed by Harrison’s desperate family to accept this crazy marriage deal. For two years, she will have to act the role of caring, supportive wife. But what is Ryan supposed to do when she realizes that, deep in her heart, she’s falling in love.

Patty Griffin - Not Alone
This song is actually about a woman who has died and is watching her husband sleep. But I love the imagery of how alone the man is and I think it fits Harrison incredibly well - he's got a lot of Ghosts...

She sees him laying in the bed alone tonight
The only thing a touching him is a crack of light
Pieces of her hair are wrapped around and 'round his fingers
And he reaches for her side, for any sign of her that lingers

Florence and The Machine - Shake it Out   
This song completely personifies Ryan, my heroine. She's so tough, with so many regrets and falling in love requires her to "bury that horse in the ground" 

Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark
I love this song so much. It's painfully romantic - the lyrics just kill me. This is Harrison's song for Ryan when he follows her to Philly, to claim her in front of her family. It's stark and real and beautiful. Go listen!

If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the "No"'s on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

Pat Benetar - Love is a Battlefield
That's right, we're going way back for this one!!  But frankly, for the first half of the book Ryan and Harrison's relationship is a battlefield. So it totally fits. And it gave me a chance to rewatch that video...

You're begging me to go
Then making me stay
Why do you hurt me so bad
It would help me to know
Do I stand in your way
Or am I the best thing you've had

Maroon 5 - Love Somebody 
Ryan in Indecent Proposal is a big fan of Maroon 5. And I imagine her listening to this song and feeling like the band is singing right to her. 

I know your insides are feeling so hollow
And it's a hard pill for you to swallow, yeah
But if I fall for you, I'll never recover
If I fall for you, I'll never be the same
