In my contemporary romance series The Montgomerys, the patriarch of wealthy family William Montgomery is blessed. He may owe a lot to the family business, but it’s his family that owns his heart. He’s living his dream – married to the love of his life – but now he wants to step in and make sure the next generation of Montgomery’s find their true loves.
We see him get his start in Wait for Me. Lucas is living in a self-imposed exile after an injury ended his NFL career. He is content being alone – that is until the sweet and sexy Emma shows up on his doorstep in the middle of a snowstorm (thanks to some finagling from William). Jason and Maggie work together in Trust in Me and Jason’s rule about not dating employees was important to him. But his heart just won’t listen. In Return to You, Selena was James Montgomery’s first love, but a tragic accident broke them up. Now, ten years later, she’s back in his life but can he convince her to stay? And all Summer Montgomery in Meant for You ever wanted was Ethan Reed. As her brother’s best friend, he’s off limits. But Summer was never very good at following the rules.
With so many Montgomery’s coming at readers, I thought it might be nice for you to get to know them a little bit better! So let’s play a game of ‘Montgomery Most Likely’ where you will find out what makes these characters tick!
Who is the Montgomery Most Likely To…
…be compared to Chris Hemsworth?
James from Return to You. Definitely. They share a lot of the same physical traits and in James’ line of work, he kind of feels like a superhero sometimes.
…pull an all-nighter at work?
Jason from Trust in Me. He is the most consumed with the company and it takes the patience of a good woman to help him see that there is more to life.
…spend way too much money on a first date?
Ethan from Meant for You. Ethan is all about doing things and going places that are a bit out of the ordinary. A simple dinner out wouldn’t do. He find a way to make a first date something memorable, an adventure.
…forget to shave for days at a time?
That would be Lucas from Wait for Me. With all that time living by himself like a hermit, shaving was the last thing on his mind. He may have Emma in his life but some habits are hard to break.
…skinny dip in a local lake?
Selena from Return to You. She and James did this when they dated as teens and it wouldn’t take much to convince her to do it again with him now that they’re back together!
…plan the most extravagant wedding?
Summer from Meant for You would be all over a huge wedding. She’s the most artsy and creative and she’ll have a hard time reigning that in. It may not be a royal wedding, but she’ll have the best of everything she chooses!
…serenade their significant other?
Maggie from Trust in Me. She has really come out of her shell since meeting Jason and she knows that even though she’s not a great singer, she can serenade him without him possibly making fun of her.
Emma from Wait for Me. For as much of a girly-girl as she is, all she wants is to be married and doesn’t need all the fuss of a big wedding.
Return To You
James Montgomery has achieved everything he’d hoped for in life…except marrying the girl of his dreams. After a terrible accident, Selena Ainsley left ten years ago. She took his heart with her and she’s never coming back. But it’s becoming harder and harder for him to forget their precious time together, and James can’t help but wonder what he would do if they could ever meet again.

Meant For You
Summer Montgomery wants to be taken seriously almost as much as she wants her brother’s best friend, Ethan. But with a long resume of seemingly random career choices and a protective brother on watch, those things are nothing more than pipe dreams…
Ethan Reed would like nothing more than to live by his own rules. Not wanting to disappoint his best friend Zach, or any of the Montgomerys, Ethan’s had to push his long-denied feelings for Summer aside. But it only takes one night away from watchful eyes to make impossible dreams come true…

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan’s Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40’s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.
When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
