I'm so thrilled to be a part of Christy's blog today to celebrate the release of my new contemporary romance, FROM THIS MOMENT ON, about the Sullivan family - 6 brothers and 2 sisters in a close knit family.
For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.
Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name - Nico - for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is...or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger - and the sinful promises - in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.
One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. Growing emotions - and sizzling attraction - keep drawing them closer together. Close enough for them to wonder if stealing one more secret moment together can ever be enough?
One of the reasons why FROM THIS MOMENT ON was so much fun to write is because my hero is a winery owner. I live in the Northern California wine country and am inspired by the gorgeous grapevines and mountains around me every day! In fact, I'm looking out at them from my office as I type. The first time my husband and I set eyes on this beautiful part of the country thirteen years ago, we knew we had to move here.
I'm having an absolute blast with my Sullivan family and can't wait to tell every single one of their love stories! Just ask my husband, who I was yabbering on to yesterday when we were in the car on the way home from a weekend in Lake Tahoe, about one of my Sullivans. He's very good at looking interested. :) The first book – THE LOOK OF LOVE – came out this summer and the third – CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE – will be out in December.
I'd love to know what some of your favorite settings are for books? I'll happily give away a digital copy of THE LOOK OF LOVE (Sullivans #1) to one of the commentors.
