Crimson Romance Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Crimson Wonderland Blog Hop!!! This hop is sponsored by Crimson Romance author. We’re a diverse group! Our books range from Spicy to Historical, Paranormal to Contemporary, and even Romantic Suspense! Basically, there’s something for every romance lover.

When I read a romance, I love to be carried off to another place. Sometimes that place is somewhere familiar like New York City or a small town. But other times that place is somewhere completely new and fascinating like an alternate world or our current world but filled with paranormal creatures! One of the things I love most about reading is getting sucked into the story so much that everything else just disappears for a little while. And if there is a great romance mixed into it, that’s even better! I always know that a book really grabs me if I’m thinking about the world and the characters in it even when I’m not reading. And often times, that leads to me wanting to read more often then I should. My kids have suffered a few over cooked meals because I’m deep in a book and trying to cook while reading! I don’t recommend it. 🙂

In my book Falling for You, I hope readers get swept into the world of a reality TV dating show. The show is the backdrop for the whole story and in some ways, the show is a character all on it’s own. It causes drama and upset and provides a ton of entertainment. I hope my readers enjoy getting a little taste of what I imagine it must be like behind the scenes of a reality TV show. Maybe you’ll get so hooked, you’ll start burning dinner for your family too! LOL. Or better yet, just order delivery, sit back and relax on the couch for a couple of nights while you read about Cassidy and Evan, and let someone else do the cooking for a change!

 

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.

How about an excerpt from the book, just for you?

“Stay still, Corona,” she pleaded, patting the horse on the shoulder. She swung her leg over the horse, determined to successfully complete one dismount before the challenge ended.

Her arms shook as she lowered herself carefully from the saddle, finally giving up their fight part way down. Gravity took her the last few feet and she hit the ground with both feet, stumbling backward a step before bumping into something solid.

“How, Cassidy? How do you always end up in my arms?” Evan’s voice rumbled in her ear, his warm breath on her earlobe making her girly bits tingle.

She found her footing and turned in his arms. She could see the dust and dirt clinging to his five o’clock shadow, his brow beaded with sweat. He desperately needed a shower and there was nothing she could have fantasized about more than being in one with him. Instead, she pushed herself back from him and swallowed her urge to climb him like a jungle gym.

“What can I say? I guess I just keep falling for you,” she said, before her brain caught up to her mouth and she was able to censor herself.

  17. Renee B says:

    You are a new author for me and I’m glad that I found your site. I am intrigued by the excerpt of Falling For You and will be adding it to my wish list. I am a sucker for the Happily Ever After which is why I like the romance books. I especially like the paranormal or futuristic romance books with hot sexy alpha heroes and kick-ass heroines. They can be futuristic, or go back in time, or be contemporary or even on another planet as long as they get me hooked from the very first few chapters. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

  20. belindaegreen says:

    Heather,

    Falling for You’s blurb reads well. It sounds fun!

    If I’m not transported in the story, it’s a disappointment. I treat each book as if I’m a bystander watching the scenes as they unfold. I like to see in my mind’s eye the people, surroundings, and emotions.

    Thanks for the opportunity to meet you, explore your site and share a little.

    1. Heather says:

      I totally agree with you, Belinda! If I’m not ‘in’ the story, I find it very hard to keep reading it. I love being transported somewhere new with each book I read.

  21. mariannetheresa1 says:
