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,

Let’s Talk About: Act Like It

I first heard about this book from the Smart Bitches, Trashy Books blog. Everyone was raving about it. Raving. They looooooved it.

act like it_cover

Darn right, they loved it. This book is amazing! Admittedly, the fake relationship trope isn’t usually my thing, but ohmygoodness, none of that mattered in Act Like It. Parker’s characters carry the story to the point where they could have gotten up to any kind of plot hole-ridden crazysauce and I would not have cared in the slightest. I got a very Pride and Prejudice-esque vibe for some reason–maybe the banter between the hero and heroine, maybe because I so loved watching the hero’s growth and change for the better, maybe because the ending was so wholly satisfying. Whatever the reason, I’ll definitely be re-reading this one!

Cover Reveal–Fierce Dancer

The Sierra Pride is about to get a new installment, and we’re branching out a little bit. This is the first book that doesn’t have a Fournier brother as one of the main characters. Quentin is a rogue lion who’s craving a sense of home. Here’s the description:

Emma Koons had been promised a spot in a Nevada ballet company, but after making a poor dating choice she’s out on her can, with no good work prospects. Now she dances in the Lollipop Lounge. It’s a far cry from ballet, but it keeps her body toned and ready for the day she might be able to audition again.

Quentin Armstrong is a loner mountain lion shifter with a yearning to be a part of something bigger. When the Fourniers call him for a favor, he accepts, hardly expecting to fall in love with the woman they send him to find. The last thing he wants to do is expose Emma to the dangers of his shifter world, but soon he finds himself fighting not only to keep her heart, but to save her life.

And now…the cover!

Yes, it’s very pink, which makes me extremely happy. 🙂 I can’t wait to share the rest of the book with you! It’s available for pre-order on Amazon and AmazonSmile and will be released on September 7th.

Fierce Player Release Day–and Fierce Wanderer, FREE

SIERRAPRIDEBANNER

I think I fell in love with Maverick when he first popped up in Fierce Wanderer. From then on, I could not wait to write his book, Fierce Player. And then Kate showed up, in her pink hair and eff-you attitude in Chapter One, and I fell in love with this couple.

Kate Ahrens has a problem—she keeps imagining creepy men following her while she walks to and from her college campus. It’s the result of too much time spent developing games, and not enough time talking to actual people. But when she meets the hot librarian with amazing eyes, she starts to think maybe she just hadn’t found the right person to talk to.

As the fourth brother in the shapeshifting Sierra Pride, Maverick Fournier isn’t intimidated by much. Kate, though, with her hot pink hair and sexy piercings, makes him completely lose his cool. He wants to protect her, smell her, and mate her—maybe not in that order. Unfortunately, there are some other men interested in Kate, and their interest isn’t at all romantic. Even though protecting her means revealing his animal side, Maverick is determined to keep her safe and win her love.

Fierce Player, available now

Like all the other books in the Sierra Pride series, Fierce Player stands alone! This one is different in that it hints at things to come in the next books, but don’t worry–there’s still a happily-ever-after and the main story line is resolved.

You can one-click your way to reading Fierce Player here on Amazon or AmazonSmile!

And FINALLY THE FREE STUFF! Book 1 in the series, Fierce Wanderer, is available for FREE on Amazon for a limited time.

Many thanks to Lauren at Romance Novel Giveaways for designing the lovely banner up at the top of this post, and for helping to spread the word!

Cover Reveal: Fierce Player!

Yay, Maverick’s story! This one has more of a New Adult feel than the other books in the series, because the hero and heroine are both college-aged. It was a blast to write!
