Bidding on the Bachelor Easter Eggs

BotB CoverToday is release day for my latest book! BIDDING ON THE BACHELOR is book 2 in the Saved by the Blog series. This book is about Carissa and Jasper, the hottest couple back in high school. Carissa broke up with Jasper after graduation and hasn’t been heard of since…until she shows up in Bayside ten years later to find Jasper is the most sought after bachelor in town. Will Jasper and Carissa be able to pick up where they left off? Or will the ubiquitous Bayside Blogger put a cramp in their reunion?

To celebrate BIDDING ON THE BACHELOR’s release, I thought it would be fun to share a couple Easter Eggs from the book. So sit back, relax, and enjoy. Buy links are at the end.

Easter Egg #1

There is a chapter in the book when Carissa and Jasper share a meal of pizza and red wine. This just happens to be my absolute favorite meal on the planet. Of course, I do prefer anchovies on my pizza. They also have a peach pie later that night, which is my favorite dessert.

Easter Egg #2

Carissa is staying at her aunt’s house. When she walks in she is overwhelmed with the décor, which reminds her of The Golden Girls. I love The Golden Girls! Love, love, love! I used to watch it with my Nunnie, I still watch the reruns today, and my friends and I often discuss Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia and sing the theme song. “Thank you for being a friend….”

Easter Egg #3

The first time Carissa and Jasper interact with each other after their ten years apart, they are in a dive bar. Carissa is drinking tequila and beer, and seeing her getting tipsy, Jasper orders her mozzarella sticks. Another favorite food of mine. Especially at bars.

Easter Egg #4

Carissa is a caterer. At least, she is trying to be. She ends up catering a ladies’ tea. I adore going to tea. Although, I can count on one hand how many times I’ve gone to tea, but I love it. The tiny sammies, the cookies, the clotted cream. Yum, yum, yum.

Easter Egg #5

When Jasper and Carissa were in high school, they spent a lot of time hanging out at a used bookstore. Back when I was in high school, my BFFs Amber and Danielle and I would go to the movies every Friday. Before cell phones, Fandango and picking seats, we would have to get to the movie theater early to make sure we could get tickets. Then we would head to the mall and camp out at Walden Books or B. Dalton. Usually sit on the floor and peruse the psychic and palm reading books.

Bonus Egg

Saved by the Bell is my ultimate, huge, gigantic, glittery Easter Egg. It is my all-time favorite TV show. And it was a huge part of my adolescence. I’m so thrilled I could include it in this series.

I couldn’t be more thrilled that the Romance Writers of America Anthology, SECOND CHANCES, was published today! This book has 17 stories, spanning different sub-genres of romance. My story is called HOMECOMING and it’s a sweet new adult tale about two best friends who may or may not get a second chance at love.

But don’t take my word for it. Here’s my dog, Harry, chatting about SECOND CHANCES….

New Year, New Book, New Series

You may have noticed that I haven’t had any new books out in 2017. That’s because I’ve been waiting until now to share my newest release. I’m thrilled to introduce a brand new series I’m writing for Harlequin Special Edition called…Saved by the Blog. Initiate glitter toss.

Book 1 is called Falling for the Right Brother and the release date is right around the corner. Print book (that’s right, this one comes out in paperback) is May 23 and the e-book is available June 1. Isn’t this cover gorgeous!

I describe this first book as a combination of Gossip Girl and Sabrina. But set in Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay. It’s fabulous and I hope everyone loves reading it as much as I loved writing it.

Here are the other books in the Saved by the Blog series:

Bidding on the Bachelor, October 2017
Smitten with the Boss, January 2018

Want more details? Check out the blurb and the buy links below. Stay tuned for a sneak peek of Falling for the Right Brother next week. Until then, happy reading….

Saved by the blog! 

This just in, fair readers! Chic and stunning, that gorgeous new woman about town is none other than our very own little Ellie—now Elle—Owens. She’s a far cry from the frumpy, bookish student we used to know, but then, living in Italy will do that to a girl! Still, this blogger can’t forget the infamous video that caused her to leave!

Apparently Miss Elle has been spotted with yummy contractor Cam Dumont…but we thought her heart belonged to his little brother. Are Cam and Elle a new couple? They were seen cooling their passions in the bay…in April! If this is love, let’s hope she’s swimming with the right brother. The Bayside Blogger will keep you posted.

WRONG now. (See the buy links below.) Really can’t wait? Okay, okay, here’s a little excerpt to tide you over…. TMW Cover

EXCERPT

Carly started a pot of coffee. While it brewed, she meandered over to the window again. Thank God she wasn’t holding her coffee cup because it would have most definitely been dropped and splattered into a million pieces on the floor. Lance was working out in the backyard. But not just working out. Half-naked working out. And currently he was doing one-armed pushups as his rippling muscles quivered with the exertion.

Damn. She knew something else that was currently trembling, and she had to cross her legs to keep from losing it completely. Her mouth dropped open, and she knew that drool was soon to drip out of it. She knew Lance was built, but witnessing his naked top half working out really drove that point home.

Holy hell.

As if he felt her presence and knew she was standing there gawking at him, Lance looked up. No time to even pretend to be doing something else, she was totally busted. Taking it in stride, Carly winked and then strolled back to the kitchen and fixed her coffee. As Lance sauntered in the back door a few moments later, she took a long, deep gulp, the hot liquid scalding her throat. Not that she felt it because Lance still remained shirtless and her brain therefore remained inoperable.
