Fernando Durante knows lusting after someone at work is not an option.

When a friend emails him an invitation to an exclusive dating service, Fernando accepts against his better judgment.

Will Angel and Fernando let their hearts guide them?

RT13 :)

May 3


RT13 is so much fun! 😀

I’ve met a ton of authors and fellow bloggers, several of whom I’ve formed friendships with online via Twitter. Such a blast putting faces and voices to the Twitter avatars 🙂

I came prepared to promote my blog and one of Trinidad and Tobago’s most famous exports, Angostura Aromatic Bitters. People seem to love getting the Angostura recipe cards! 🙂


Screen Shot 2013-05-03 at 2.17.49 AM


Here’s author and super cool chick, Catherine Bybee, and I on Wednesday at her birthday party shindig.

Screen Shot 2013-05-03 at 2.17.11 AM
Today is day three of five of the official 5-day RT (Romantic Times) Booklovers Convention here in Kansas City, MI

It snowed, yes snowed, yesterday afternoon (Thursday, May 2), turning the skies over downtown KC white.

Screen Shot 2013-05-03 at 2.18.09 AM

Snow or no snow, these streets always seem eerily deserted. Guess most people live and work elsewhere in KC 😉

No matter, cause I’ve yet to leave the Sheraton to explore the city. (This WILL be rectified today though).  RT13 is all about meeting your peeps and forging links with new ones though, so I have no regrets on being inside since Wednesday afternoon. BUT, I did step out into the hotel’s courtyard this evening to experience the snow first-hand 🙂

Then it was up to my room to get ready for the Awards Dinner and Ball co-hosted by RT Magazine and Entangled Publishing.

I sat with Kristy Wyatt (@KristyWyatt) at dinner 🙂

Screen Shot 2013-05-03 at 2.16.34 AM

After the Ball, it was my good fortune to meet two hot cover models! 🙂

This is the sweet and charming Harvey Stables (@HarveyStables)

Cover Reveal: “The Practice Proposal” by Tracy March

Mar 12


Here’s your second Cover Reveal time of the day at CABR 🙂

This time it’s THE PRACTICE PROPOSAL by  Tracy March.

This book is also from Entangled Publishing‘s Bliss imprint but it belongs to a different series – Suddenly Smitten


The Practice Proposal cover



Liza Sutherland isn’t looking for love. Not from a charity-auction date she didn’t even bid on and especially not with Nationals first baseman Cole Collins, the guy she obsessed over as an awkward teenager. She won’t get involved with a notorious player, no matter how attractive Cole is.

Cole Collins is up for contract renegotiation, but after too many late-night parties, he’ll need some positive publicity before he can make the roster. His agent, Frank, pitches Liza as the perfect prop…only Cole didn’t account for Liza no longer being just a teenager with a crush. She’s gorgeous and smart and he’s instantly hooked.

When Frank makes Liza a deal she can’t refuse—a bet she will fall in love with Cole or a cool half mil goes to charity—the game is on. But neither bet on the real feelings that surface. Could a fake fling turn into an official forever?

About Tara:

Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about grim reapers. Some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one stop light town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flash light reading RL Stine novels and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara no longer lives in a one stop light town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North  Carolina where they have at least three stoplights.
