Part #4 of our chat with @reginakyleauthor LUV: Which of your novels do you wish a producer would adapt onto the screen. Regina: Oooh, this is a tough one. Since rom coms are so hot right now, my first instinct is to say Dirty Work, book one in my Dirty Duet for Harlequin Dare (oh, how I miss that line, and Blaze, too, for which I wrote my first four books, the Art of Seduction series). Dirty Work is probably the most fun book I’ve ever written. It’s got everything from a cock-blocking Irish wolfhound to a penis-themed bachelorette party to strip Scrabble to dirndl-wearing drag queens, all set against the glamorous backdrop of New York City. I could totally see it working as a big (or small) screen rom com. But I also love, love, love the explosion of LGBTQ+ romances that we’re seeing on screens lately, like Heartstopper, Pose, Young Royals, Love, Victor, and the new League Of Their Own. In that vein, I’d love to see Showstopper, the book I wrote for the Vino and Veritas series, part of amazing author Sarina Bowen’s World of True North, get a TV or movie treatment. It’s a male/male new adult romance that combines two of my favorite things: theater (again) and hockey (go, Penguins). Hockey hottie Adam needs theater geek Kolby to help him pass an improv class so he can keep his scholarship. Kolby needs Adam to teach him how to skate for a music video audition. I can totally see the fun improv scenes—and one particularly smexy skating scene—up on the screen.
