So finally, after a year of rewrites, heartbreak, title changes, and a brief contract with an agent, Different Faces of Danger, title change to Face of Danger, title change to Intimate Danger (which is where I hope it'll stay), I've found a home for my new romantic suspense. This book caused a lot of ups and downs, as many in the industry know it's a very fine line between thriller and romantic suspense, and based on that fine line, opinions can go either way. Which makes it frustrating as an author, but most times, no matter what, an author has to stick toward what they believe is the right approach for a book and have faith that a publisher will love it as much as they do, and offer a contract.
Which is what happened! *keys music*
I'm super excited to have these girls on today. This cover is phenominal, the stories are amazing, and the authors are one group of girls you don't want to pass up.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
They say love conquers all, but whoever "they" are, must not have heard of Murphy's Law -- whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.
These five tales of sweet, accidental romance prove Cupid's arrows are a lot tougher than they seem, and sometimes it pays to be unlucky.
No Wrong Turns by Lisa A. Adams
Jessica Brannah is escaping from her last heartbreak with a loaded car and a new address. But, when Murphy's Law finds her stranded in a back country town, she realizes there's no outrunning love.
Falling For You by Michelle Ziegler
Darci’s ready to move on. Too bad the dating pool stinks. Until, a ghost from her past resurfaces—the man she missed out on in college.
Andrew was the one man she’d always loved, but neither of them ever made a move. But, old feelings aren’t the only thing resurfacing of late. Darci’s ex comes crawling back at the most inappropriate time, and with all the testosterone flying, she might not end up with either man.
Coffee and Cufflinks by Annabelle Blume
Fresh out of a failed relationship and exhausted by a constant barrage of fiascos at work, Olivia Johnson doesn’t see the man of her dreams standing right in front of her. She tells herself the morning coffee meet-ups with Daren are nothing but coincidence, but even she can’t deny his unequivocal attractiveness. When a night entertaining clients takes a turn for the worst, and Daren shows up where she least expects him, failure starts to look more like fate.
A Slippery Slope by Rebecca Hart
Anne Montgomery is psyched for her girl’s only weekend, despite her friends’ choice of vacation locale—the snowy slopes of Harris Peak Ski Resort—where someone as notoriously accident prone as she has no business being. When Murphy’s Law finally catches up with her, Anne is forced to consider there may be times when it pays to be unlucky.
The Shamrock Incident by London Saint James
Florist, Marissa Carmichael isn’t usually a klutz, but she’s in a hurry and having a bad day. In her haste, she loses her balance and tumbles from the back room of her shop, arms flailing. Her less than graceful entrance halted by a headfirst crash into a display case chock full of silk flowers.
Trey Cleary didn’t think his day could get any worse, until he finds. himself picking the side view mirror of his BMW up from the ground. On a mission to do something about it, he locates the flower shop matching the name on the back of the van that mangled his ‘baby'. But, his car is forgotten when a beautiful woman bursts into the room like an out of control whirling dervish, and takes one mother of a wipeout into the shop’s counter. Coming to her aid brings out the hero in him like no one he’s ever encountered, and leaves him with a need to know more.
For Marissa and Trey, this just might be the one time it pays to be unlucky.
My Writing Process
This is a stop on a blog hop with several authors discussing their writing processes. The extremely talented and topnotch Lea Bronson has tagged me and I’ve tagged two authors to follow my post in the hop. There are more authors to visit, so if you follow along, ahead or working back, I’m sure you’re gonna run into a whole bit of talent. What is this hop all about? It’s about authors offering others a glimpse into their work, their work schedules, and perhaps their innermost thoughts. Come take a hop on the wild side!
Before I get to the questions, I wanted to tell you a bit about Lea. She’s a writer of thriller and erotic romances. I’ve read her Wild Hearted (actually from the first written word, on through the editing, and then again the final product) and then I also read My Biggest Fan which was the same process as above. Lea is an author that really dives into her character’s worlds, is not afraid to take chances, and shows you that good and bad guys in the literal sense can get their story told. I highly recommend this author, not only to read, but to chat up.
