Hard Work 
Finding the One Book 1 

From New York Times bestselling author K.M. Scott comes the first standalone romance in the Finding The One series! 

Zane Gilford has lived a blessed life. The only son of the owner of The Gilford House Inn, he's benefitted from his mother's extraordinary success. But Vermont was never where he wanted to be, and the day after graduation, he put the quaint country inn and everything about it behind him and never looked back. 

Until now. 

The death of his mother left Zane a very wealthy man, but in her will she also left him a surprise. For an entire year, he must run that Vermont inn he's hated all his life if he wants to get one red cent of his inheritance. 

Becca Fox has worked her way to the top of the advertising business and has the personal and professional scars to prove it. In her rare time off, she loves visiting her favorite bed and breakfast in the mountains of Vermont. When she finds a new owner running The Gilford House Inn, she wonders if her favorite getaway place has been ruined for her. He's sexy as all hell and incredibly good looking, but he's so cocky and arrogant. 

From the first moment he sees her, Zane knows he wants Becca, but to get a woman like her, he's going to have to learn to be a better man than he's ever been. He's got an inn to run and a woman to win. Neither is going to be easy. And time isn't in his favor. 

K.M. Scott is a New York Times and USA Today Bestseller of contemporary romance stories. A writer for all her life, she finally decided to take the plunge and seek publication in 2011. Under her Gabrielle Bisset pseudonym, she writes erotic paranormal and historical romance, but in 2013 she decided to branch off into contemporary romance. Loving what she does, her contemporary romances are filled with steamy sex, great dialogue, and happily ever afters that stay with the reader long after they finish her books.

  1. Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?

I’m K.M. Scott and I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over 40 books. Most are contemporary romance, but under my Gabrielle Bisset name, I have two paranormal romance series and a few historicals. Before becoming a full-time author, I taught history in college. My tagline is sexy, intense, and unforgettable love, and that’s what readers know to expect in my books.

  1. Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

I can definitely see my Heart of Stone books being made into a movie, especially the first three—Crash Into Me, Fall Into Me, and Give In To Me. Tristan and Nina’s story is practically made for film. I think my Addicted To You series would make a good film too, and After The Storm, one of the Project Artemis series books would be good also.

3. How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing for as long as I remember. In college, I wrote mostly nonfiction, especially in grad school for history, but fiction has always been a part of my life. Even as a child, I was a writer.

4. Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?

Before I write the first word of a book, I’ve been listening to my characters tell their story for weeks, sometimes months, so I know all the characters early on.

5. Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?

There have been times when I’ve written more than one book at a time, but the longer I’m an author, the more I get consumed by a story and can only write one at a time. The characters take up all the space in my mind, so I’m focusing a lot more now.

6. What is your writing process? For instance do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?

I’m a serious plotter—like VERY serious. Before I sit down to type the first word of a book on my laptop, I outline the entire story. If it’s in a series, then the entire series is plotted out before anything is written in book one. My outlines contain everything from descriptions, character details, settings, plot, and even dialogue. A book outline can be 50 pages long. More than one friend has said I basically write each book twice, and I’m not sure I disagree with that. But this way works for me, and most importantly, it helps me to avoid writer’s block.

7. How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book?

The idea for Big Love came from a song, which I can’t remember anymore, unfortunately. It was spring in 2017 and as I listened to this song, the story began to come alive in my head. A small town. Summer romance. A bit of intrigue with a sexy stranger. I plotted it all out and began writing it, but when I finished it in summer 2017, I didn’t want to release it just yet. So I put it away and then in the past few months, I remembered the story of Big Love and suddenly it felt like the right time to release it. I needed to read something light and happy in the middle of everything going on. (I have a lot of books written over the years that once I finished them I didn’t release them. Everything has a right time, and they simply haven’t reached theirs.)

8. What is your favorite part of this book and why?

I love the story in Big Love, but my favorite parts of it involve Matt’s humor. While many of my heroes are more serious, he’s quite funny. The scene with him in the hospital with the doctor made me laugh out loud as I wrote it.

9. Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?

The characters in Big Love, as with all of my books, are from my imagination. My writing is influenced by music, TV shows, and movies, but in the end, the characters spring from me.

10. Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.

If you love small town romance with a dash of humor and a happily ever after that will warm your heart, then Big Love is the book you want.

11. Fun Facts/Behind the Scenes/Did You Know?'-type tidbits about the author, the book or the writing process of the book.

The town in the book, Hansonville, is fictional but based on a town I lived in for a short time when I was young.

Big Love was originally titled By Heart. I give all my books titles when I begin writing (and actually can’t begin writing without a title), but often those change as the book gets written. The new title reflects the idea of romance that the heroine Clare has after having her heart broken before.

When I’m writing a book, I write 3000 words every day until the book is done, 7 days a week starting every day at 9 am. Sometimes that takes a few hours, while other days it takes up to 12 hours. Those days are exhausting, but I don’t give up until 3000 words are done.
