Hi, I’m romantic comedy author Lucy Woodhull, and I’m here to celebrate the release of the third and final book in my Samantha Lytton contemporary romance series. Samantha is a wannabe actress who gets accidentally involved with an art thief who ruins her life in the sexiest way possible. Book three is called The Wrath of Dimple, and it follows The Dimple of Doom and The Dimple Strikes Back.
Here’s a blurb for the first book:
“The Dimple of Doom cracked me up. I laughed and laughed and then laughed some more.” —
The Dimple of Doom, book one in the Samantha Lytton series.
It may sound like common sense, but never hump an art thief. Turns out, Samantha Lytton’s Common-Sense-O-Meter is super duper broken.
Failed actress Samantha Lytton is getting along just fine in her lonely little life when a charming criminal called Sam or Nate or maybe even Richmond kisses her, square dances most provocatively, opens his not-so-wicked heart, and gets her in trouble with not one, but two international art theft rings as well as the LAPD.
She’s either gonna end up in jail or famous. Maybe both.
Along the way, she fights for her life and falls for this funny, sexy disaster of a man… and learns that finding happily-ever-after with yourself is the first step to real contentment. A cute dimple is just the second.
Samantha goes on the adventure of her life through these three books, and travels the world in pursuit of her own dreams (and the hot man, natch). She’s accompanied many times by her best friend, Ellen, and they enjoy a fabulous female friendship inspired by the hijinks of myself and my oldest friend, K. So for fun, I asked K to interview me for my blog tour of The Wrath of Dimple (book three). She said yes like the humoring friend that she is, and so I present: The interview of Lucy Woodhull by BFF K.
Dearest Lucy, we have been BFFs since long before the popularization of the term, “BFF,” much like Samantha and Ellen in your fabulous books. We even, as I recall, created our own secret language, of sorts. If Samantha and Ellen did similar, what would “BFF” stand for in their speak?
BFF in Samantha and Ellen’s language means “bshhhbr frappy froop,” which means “We are the unicorn queens of the universe, and we will, we will rock you (clap clap) rock you (clap clap).” They’re big Queen fans, and also big unicorn fans. Children of the eighties always are! Also, “bshhhbr frappy froop” is really fun to say. The first word is basically just a raspberry.
What is the square root of 69?
Dammit, Jim, I’m a writer, not a math wizard! 69 needs no square root, as it is the most tempestuous number. Besides seven hundred and forty-three…that is one racy number.
Xanadu is Samantha’s favorite movie. What is Sam the man’s favorite?
Sam, Samantha’s unfortunately same-named art thief lover (and he of the infamous dimple), loves Raiders of the Lost Ark. Indiana Jones is grumpy and runs around the world excavating artifacts. Sam is also grumpy, and travels the globe, um, “liberating” pieces of art. That’s kindof the same thing, right? On a personal note, Harrison Ford UNF, amIright?
Samantha can be pretty badass at times — have you, Lucy, ever kicked a (deserving) guy in the nuts?
Ha! No, I have not. Not physically, anyway. I have been known to try and ball-bust with my mind, but since I’m not an X-Man, it doesn’t work. Samantha, however, busts criminals of both genders with shocking regularity, with the help of Ellen and her girlfriend Nicolette (a bona-fide cop). These three ladies are a force to be reckoned with, even while singing “Xanadu.” Nope, no kicks to the groin, but Samantha does defeat a bad guy while wearing roller skates, which is totally a Beyoncé thing to do. I am worthy of neither of them.

You can read the blurbs for all three of Samantha’s funny adventures here. My crazy heroine has brought me a lot of joy, and I hope she can do the same for you!
Thanks so much to Love, Romance, Passion for having me. And thanks to K for putting up with me for more years than I care to admit to on the Internet.

Bio: Lucy Woodhull has always loved le steamy romance. And laughing. And both things at the same time, although that can get awkward. Her motto is “Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you’ll short-circuit your Kindle.” That’s why she writes funny books, because goodness knows we all need to escape the real world once in a while. She believes in red lipstick, equality, and the interrobang. Hailing from Southern California, she daydreams with her husband and a very fat cat who doesn’t like you.
