Fall in Love with Mr. Wright this Christmas! Release Day Excerpt & Giveaway!

Posted at Dec 3, 2017 7:33 pm

It’s release day for Falling for Mr. Wright, my super cute holiday romance! Available at all e-retailers! Enjoy an excerpt and enter my rafflecopter giveaway! (Giveaway ends Dec. 15)

In this scene, Sarah accompanies Ryan home to Connecticut to attend an awards gala at his former high school. They wind up alone on the football field where Sarah suggest Ryan show her his quarterback moves.

Ryan cocked an eyebrow. “You want me to tackle you?”

“Yes.”

“In that dress?”

Sarah looked down at herself. Whoops. “Okay, maybe just don’t let me win so easily.”

“Okay.” He motioned her to get back into position down the field. “Get ready.”

“I should warn you,” she called to him. “Before I fed the chickens in high school, I ran two miles each morning.”

“Noted.” Once again, he lobbed the ball in her direction. Knowing he’d follow, she grabbed the ball out of the air and ran as fast as she physically could in her dress. Ryan caught up a little too quickly for her liking, so she dodged right and then quickly faked a left, throwing him off just long enough to dash straight for the end zone.

Before she could celebrate victory, Ryan grabbed her waist and lifted her off the ground. “I win, I win!” she shrieked between laughs. Ryan gently put her down and she turned around, standing inches from him. “See? I wouldn’t have lost you a game,” she said, hugging the football.

“Nope,” he said, not moving from his spot. Maybe it was the champagne, or maybe it was her pesky new football-player fantasy, but she stepped closer into his space.

“Are you going to show me how you celebrated touchdowns? I’d love to see you do one of those funny dances players do.” “I could do that.” He touched her cheek with his knuckle, letting it linger. “But I’d rather do this.” He leaned down and brushed her lips with his.

Just a simple touch of warm, soft skin that left her drifting forward. And then it was over. Ryan pulled back, his eyes hooded, his gaze hypnotizing. She clutched the football and blinked up at him, her mind swirling with a thousand thoughts.

At the top of the list? Holy crap. Ryan Wright just kissed me. Followed quickly by, I want him to do it again. No. Bad idea. Ryan was her colleague. Her friend. Kissing him would ruin everything. She’d have to quit her job because no way could she pretend like nothing happened, and it would hurt too much to see him, knowing a momentary lapse of judgment cost her their relationship.

She willed herself to step back…and failed. What are you doing? You’re supposed to want Logan. You’re here, at this gala, for Logan.

But was she? When Ryan invited her, Sarah had been prepared to say yes before he even mentioned Logan. She’d never had as much fun with a guy in her life as she’d had with Ryan the past year. He was incredibly hot, apparently thought she was hot, and was by far one of the most thoughtful and charming men she’d ever met. He’d rescued a kitten at the expense of his arm, for God’s sake.

Did she mention he was hot?

Screw it. One more kiss—just a little one—wouldn’t hurt anything. “Sarah, I’m sor—”

She spiked the ball and tugged Ryan back down. His immediate groan sent thrills skittering across her chest, and lower. His mouth fit over hers perfectly and, oh God, that only added to her desperation. She parted her lips, inviting him in, needing to taste him. She might die if she didn’t.

So much for a little kiss.

Who is my favorite book boyfriend?

Posted at Oct 21, 2017 9:47 pm

I’m often asked who my favorite hero is out of all my books. While I love them each for different reasons, my all time favorite is Drew Cannon from Destination Wedding and Holiday Wedding.

Drew massively messed up his relationship with Lauren Kincaid in Destination Wedding. I’m talking huge screw up. I even wrote about it in a fun character interview between him and me that originally appeared on the Crimson Romance blog.

Fast forward a year after Destination Wedding released. I was having a medical procedure done that I needed to be put under. I warned everyone that I was a romance author working on a book and that if I mention a Jason it’s my hero in my current story.

Well, I did babble but it wasn’t Jason. It was Drew who I talked about while asleep, and apparently I was in an argument with him regarding the outcome of his story! Shortly after, I began writing Holiday Wedding!

Here’s the June 2013 interview with my favorite book boyfriend!

Robyn: “Drew, so this week’s THE week. Finally! How are you feeling about your brother’s love story being shared with the world? Are you as excited as I am?”

Drew: “Not really. I’m kind of annoyed if I’m totally honest. This book was supposed to be about me – my big day, my wedding, my sailing into the sunset with the woman I love. But oh, no. My twin brother and my wedding planner hijacked my moment on our flight to Hawaii. Luke owes his happy ending all to me. I mean, I was the one that offered to trade seats in the first place.”

Robyn: “Well actually, since I wrote the story, I know you pretty much stormed up the aisle and demanded he switch with you. Was Kate really that bad to sit with?”

Drew (laughing and shaking his head): “Don’t get me wrong, I love Kate. She is, after all, going to be related to me in more ways than one. But the woman was a freakin’ lunatic, and I didn’t know at the time that she was planning my wedding. All I wanted was a little tequila and tonic and to kick back for a few hours. Wasn’t going to happen with ‘crazy lady’ next to me. Kate kept chanting ‘I do. I do.’ – I still don’t get why she does that, but she does it a lot. That and all the talk of orphaning her fur babies … I couldn’t take it. What man could?”

Robyn: “Apparently your brother. So you trade seats and Luke pretends he’s you while you’re all up in the air. At some point he kisses Kate in attempt to ease her nerves … that must of made things a bit awkward once you landed and Kate discovered she was your wedding planner?”

Drew: “You think? The first time she met Lauren and me to talk about our wedding was so weird. She spilled her drink all over herself and looked like she’d seen a ghost. I had no idea why. I didn’t know my brother had tried to check her into the Mile High Club. It wasn’t until we were alone the next day that I realized she had the hots for me … I mean Luke.”

Robyn: “Your brother was crazy about Kate from day one. Did he tell you about their time alone in Maui?”

Drew: “Not much. He did tell me about the waterfall. That was messed up. ”

Robyn: “Wow. I can’t believe he told you about the slip in the waterfall. That was supposed to be one hot moment. There’s no doubt about it. Kate certainly did confuse you two often. Can you blame her? You’re completely identical except for one little difference. How she ultimately figures out that Luke was the one who kissed her silly on that flight, and not you, was quite funny, yes?”

Drew: “Funny for whom? That’s when everything went south for me. We now refer to what happened on the beach as ‘the incident.’ Kate initiated it, I responded and then did the stupidest thing ever. Do I regret it? Hell, yeah. But you know, the truth was finally out in the open. I never thought Luke’s idea to play me was a good one.”

Robyn: “So, Drew, I’ve been thinking about how things turned out for you and possibly doing a follow up story to Destination Wedding. Interested?”

Drew: “Seriously? Yes, I’m interested. I made one big mistake in Destination Wedding, and I’m really hoping you give me a second chance to make things right. Let’s start now. I’ll help you write it. Just don’t get any ideas about having Kate’s assistant, Miles, plan the next wedding. That guy gets on my nerves.”

Robyn: “What should I call it?”

Drew: “Holiday Wedding, Shot Gun Wedding, I don’t care what it’s called. I need my happy ending, Robyn!”

Falling for Mr. Wright Cover Reveal!

Posted at Oct 15, 2017 9:59 pm

It’s always a fun day when an author receives an e-mail with her cover attached for the first-time. Actually, it is THE day! Only second to release day. It’s beyond exciting to see what your publisher and cover artist have come up with to best show the world what your book is about. It’s a pretty cool adrenaline rush.

 I always hold my breath, hoping I’ll love it. Fortunately, I squeal more often than not. Out of 10 books there was only one that I cocked my head and said “really?”

But there was no frown or heart dropping to stomach when I opened my e-mail to view my Lovestruck cover with Entangled. I LOVED it!

 

 

How much do I love my new cover? Here are my top three reasons why this cover is the best cover for this book!

3. Because I can just picture my hero, Ryan Wright, and heroine, Sarah Leonard, flirting on a bean bag chair at NPH Designs, the eco-friendly architectural firm they work at in NYC.

2. I seriously need to find a teal skirt like the one the cover model is wearing. (If you know where I can buy one, will you leave a link in the comments?) And what about bean bag chairs in the office? It’s sooooo millennial and so fun!  

and … 1.

1. My heroine’s clearly fallen for my hero in this cover … Ha, if only it was that easy for them!

Happy sigh. It’s just perfect. Thank you, Entangled and Heather Howland. Falling for Mr. Wright releases on Dec. 4, 2017. Bloggers, if you are on NetGalley and interested in reviewing, you’ll find the link here.

In celebration of it’s upcoming release, I’m having a massive giveaway of tote bags, Clinique products, signed books and other holiday goodies to my e-newsletter subscribers. Sign up by November 15 on my website’s homepage for a chance to win!

Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance

Published: July 4, 2016

Published by: Crimson Romance

Small town. Big secrets. Welcome to Sweet Ridge.

The Cooper brothers receive the shock of their lives when their deceased father, owner of the lucrative Guac Olé company, wills away their inheritances to three random women, leaving them each only a mysterious object and a riddle to solve.

Title: Sweet Texas Kiss (Sweet Texas Secrets #1)

Author: Monica Tillery

Published: April 4, 2016

Add to Goodreads

The Cooper brothers receive the shock of their lives when their deceased father, owner of the lucrative Guac Olé company, wills away their inheritances to three random women.

No one’s more surprised when Jack Cooper leaves the family estate to music superstar Macy Young than his oldest son. Seeing his childhood memories being handed over to his high school rival—the first woman to break his heart—stings, especially when Gavin is left only a pair of old reading glasses and a cryptic note. Luckily, Macy can’t sell the house for one year—plenty of time for Gavin to find a way to get it back.

Living in the harsh spotlight of country music fame has cost Macy, and a little hometown peace and quiet just might heal her soul. But giving up and giving back Gavin’s greatest prize may not be the tune she plans to sing.

Can a country star and a country veterinarian find a way to bury their animosity and rediscover their first love in the process?

 

Monica Tillery lives in Texas with her own real-life romance hero and two wonderful sons. When she’s not reading and writing romance, Monica can be found enjoying her family, hanging out and playing games with friends, and wasting time online.


Title: Sweet Texas Fire (Sweet Texas Secrets #2)

Author: Nicole Flockton

Published: April 11, 2016

Add to Goodreads

Gage Cooper has always wanted the family cabin. Not only for the oil on the property, but as a way to prove to his father that Gage’s past doesn’t define his future. When his dad wills the land to stranger Charlotte Wilkinson and all Gage gets is a mysterious key, he’s determined to do anything to get his rightful inheritance back.

Charlotte Wilkinson never expected to inherit a piece of property in Sweet Ridge, Texas—the Aussie businesswoman is focused on building an environmental analyst career here in the States. But the moment arrogant oil-man Gage Cooper walks into her office accusing her of seducing his father, all plans for selling the property to him fly out the window.

Then fate threatens to send her back to Australia and the dueling duo are forced to accept a fake marriage to keep their dreams alive. But as they discover common ground and a surprising chemistry together, suddenly Gage must decide what’s worth more: the land he’s always coveted or a future with Charlotte.

 

Bestselling author Nicole Flockton writes sexy contemporary romances, seducing you one kiss at a time as you turn the pages. Nicole likes nothing better than taking characters and creating unique situations where they fight to find their true love.

On her first school report her teacher noted “Nicole likes to tell her own stories”. It wasn’t until after the birth of her first child and after having fun on a romance community forum that she finally decided to take the plunge and write a book.

Apart from writing Nicole is busy looking after her very own hero – her wonderfully supportive husband, and two fabulous kids. She also enjoys watching sports and, of course, reading.

 


Title: Sweet Texas Charm (Sweet Texas Secrets #3)

Author: Robyn Neeley

Published: April 18, 2016

Becca Nash has no idea why kind, old Jack Cooper left her half of his company since she never had more than a few polite conversations with the guy. Neither does Grayson Cooper, Guac Olé’s CEO, who is seething over the strawberry-shaped charm his dad willed him. He goes undercover boss to find out how he can steal back those shares, but surprisingly loses his heart to Becca instead. What he does discover is a secret that could blow apart not only Becca’s world but his whole family. Now Grayson must determine whether it’s better to follow his head or his heart.

CLCMayAtoZgraphic2016

Welcome to my stop on the #ChickLitMonth A to Z Scavenger Hunt! My letter is V for Vixen!

In my Bachelors of Buttermilk Falls series, I have a fabulous vixen/villain character, Caitlin Reynolds, who I have loved from book one. She’s just soooooo evil in books 1 (Batter Up) and 2 (Tangled Up) as the supreme nemesis for my heroines that when I set out to write her story in book 3 (Kiss and Make Up), I had my work cut out for me!

KissMakeUp_CVR_SML (2)And I loved each and every minute of it. I started in Book 2 by turning Caitlin’s world upside down. Book 3 then became my opportunity to get in her head and show she was more than the town’s spoiled rich girl, and I think I did it.

You can read an excerpt from Kiss and Make Up   here.

Thanks for letting me share my favorite vixen with you! Let’s get to some prizes!
