Let’s Talk About: America’s Next Reality Star

Tori watches plenty of guilty pleasure TV. How about you?

The idea of a romance set on a reality TV show made me really excited to meet the author, Laura Heffernan, at an event at my local indie bookstore in May. Laura is awesome. Super intelligent with a dry sense of humor.

After a cool evening with her, I had to read her book. After reading the book, I never want to be on a reality show. Don’t get me wrong! The book is great. It offered such a comprehensive look behind the scenes, that I’m convinced no typical introvert author would ever put themselves through what Jen put herself through in America’s Next Reality Star. But it sure was fun to read about.

The ebook is currently on sale for 99 cents and Book 2, Sweet Reality, will release in September (and can be preordered now).

Bisous,

Let’s Talk About: Jilting the Duke

Tori has a confession to make.

I love reading Historical Romance.

Even though I have little interest in writing it, I do love a good historical romance. My TBR and already-read lists are filled with Courtney Milan, Elizabeth Hoyt, Theresa Romain, Hannah Howell, and now, Rachael Miles.

I was first introduced to Jilting the Duke when the author, Rachael Miles, and I did a romance author event together at my local indie bookstore. Rachael is lovely in person and I devoured the book description, so I just had to read it.

It doesn’t disappoint. Steamy without being explicit, plenty of suspense, and a tiny hint of paranormal. The story sucked me in from the beginning.

Jilting the Duke is the first book in the Muses’ Salon series. I look forward to getting on to the next one.

Bisous,

Cover Reveal: Hotel Safari Complete Collection

It is finally starting to smell a bit like spring in the Northeast. Every time I think it’s starting to look like spring, we get a cold snap, a snowstorm, or freezing rain, so I’m going to stop thinking that until we get a full two weeks above 65 degrees.

Anyway.

I’m excited to share with you the cover for the upcoming box set of the Hotel Safari series. It includes all six novellas plus a bonus short story. You can preorder it now exclusively on iBooks (and in about a week or so on Nook, Kobo, and Amazon). The Hotel Safari Complete Collection will release on all those vendors on May 2nd.

Hope you like the cover! I’m enjoying drooling over all those men in one place!

New Release: Savanna Bear

I’m so pleased to share with you the next and last book in the Hotel Safari series, Savanna Bear, which is available to buy as of today.

This book was so much fun to write because Megan was so much fun. When I first created her for Book 4, Broken Lynx, I loved her so much I knew I had to give her her own story. She just loves life and love and sex soooo much and is able to express and enjoy those parts of herself, which isn’t easy for all women.

Here’s the official blurb:

A grizzly doesn’t belong on the African savanna but can he find a place in a human’s heart?

As the Head of Marketing for a multinational hotel corporation based in London, free-spirited Megan Larch has seen her share of hotel rooms. She’s also seen—and loved—her share of men. Megan has a type, and the extremely large, extremely buff American at Hotel Safari isn’t it. While she’ll never turn up her nose at a good shag, she came to the lodge to visit old friends, not make new ones.

Xander Simpson is a bear shifter on the prowl for a new adventure. He quit his job in Minneapolis to try his hand at wildlife photography on the Kenyan savanna. The sexy British redhead doesn’t fit into his plans, but she stirs emotions in him he never expected from a human woman.

When Megan learns her friends have been hiding an age-old secret, can she overcome her feelings of betrayal and forgive them? Or will her guarded nature keep her from the one man who could finally convince her to settle down?

Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this journey. So many of you responded positively to the launch of Book 5, Thai Rebound, that I hope you’ll give Megan and Xander a chance, too.

 

Bisous,
Tori

Love this review by a first-time reader!

This was my first Tori Knightwood book and I definitely enjoyed it. (In fact, I enjoyed it enough to start reading Night Spots as soon as I finished.) Being a huge fan of cat shifters, this book immediately drew my attention based on the cover alone and I’m so glad it did. It was a very quick read with a cute romance between Colin and Serena. I would recommend it to anybody else who is a fan of cat shifters, particularly big cats, and is looking for a read that is short but sweet.
