**Before I get started on the blog hop fun, I wanted to make sure you all know that you can read my book BUNNY HILLS AND BIKINIS for FREE right now by using coupon code GF45D during check out at Smashwords. That’s right… FREE!! But the coupon expires Sept 4 so don’t wait!
On to the hop. People often ask me if the stuff in my books is real. My answer is usually a very loud no! But that’s not entirely true. Sure, the sexy parts are all fictional, and the characters and plot are NOT based off of anyone in real life (including myself), but the romance inside the book has a hint of truth to it. I’m a serious romantic. I love when my husband does romantic things. I love when I see other people do romantic things for each other. I especially love seeing an older couple out for dinner together holding hands or staring at each other like their still just as much in love now as they were 40 years ago when they met. It just makes my heart melt and I try to put that kind of romance into each of my books.
Speaking of romance, I’m currently celebrating 2 new releases!! Yay! I can’t believe I have two new books released just two weeks from each other! Feels surreal and super exciting! And since I’m so excited, I’m going to entice you with the blurbs and covers… Aren’t they beautiful?!
First up is a brand new series!! Each book in the series takes place during the filming of a different reality TV show. Here’s the blurb for the first installment in the series called — FALLING FOR YOU.
Newly single Cassidy Quinn is thrilled to be a contestant on the new reality dating show The One. But her excitement turns to horror when the gorgeous bachelor turns out to be her ex-boyfriend. Seeing Brad again makes Cassidy realize she might not be as “over him” as she thought—and then she meets hunky cameraman Evan Burke.
After watching his brother lose his wife in a tragic accident, Evan vows never to fall in love. But following Cassidy around as her personal cameraman makes him question his decision, and resisting her gets harder with every sunbathing, bikini-wearing day.
Cassidy and Evan begin a forbidden affair while her ex-boyfriend tries to win her heart back one groping, awkward moment at a time. If Cassidy can manage to stop falling off horses (literally), stop falling onto her ex-boyfriend, the bachelor (yes, literally), and stop falling in love with backstage playboy Evan, she might still make it through the show without becoming a tabloid sensation.
But soon Cassidy must choose between the ex who broke her heart and the cameraman who might never love her back. For Cassidy, this reality show just got real.
Rebecca’s life of luxury in Meadow Ridge is vanishing faster than the designer clothes from her closet—unless she finds someone to share her life and her rent.
When she meets Finn, the rugged, sexy motorcycle hunk, she thinks her luck has finally changed. There’s just one problem—he’s not from Meadow Ridge. Reid, her high school flame, comes back to town as the Meadow’s most eligible bachelor, with a tendency to spoil his girlfriends, and a gorgeous mansion—everything she’s always wanted.
Now Rebecca’s torn between Finn, the man who lives a simple life outside the Meadow and Reid, the man who can give her the life she’s always wanted.
