Have you heard? If you’ve poked around on Goodreads or Amazon, you know that Book 3 has a title… Something About You. Here’s a little more about the book, which releases March 2nd:
FATE HAS THROWN TWO SWORN ENEMIES…
Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends in bloodshed. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago—and nearly ruining his career…
…INTO EACH OTHER’S ARMS
Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it’s no joke: the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes—and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension…
In other fun and exciting news, both my books were recently reviewed very positively by the Chicklit Club. Practice Makes Perfect, in fact, received their highest score–only 12 out of over 525 novels reviewed by them have received 9 out of 9 stars. And they named Just the Sexiest Man Alive as one of the books they’d most like to see made into a movie. Thanks Chicklit Club– I’m honored and thrilled! (See the reviews for both books here, and I’m doing an interview with them that should post this week.)
Also exciting was a new review of Just the Sexiest Man Alive from Romance Reader at Heart. JTSMA scored a Top Pick rose– their highest mark! Thanks RRAH!
Beth Kery is guest-blogging over at Romance Novel TV today, with a great column on author inspiration. If you haven’t yet heard about my inspiration for Practice Makes Perfect, and you’re curious, be sure to check Beth’s blog out.
And now for the nostalgia part of this blog… At RWA, author Colleen Gleason and I got into a discussion about some of the earliest books that inspired us, and discovered that we both used to be big fans of the Trixie Belden books.
For those of you who’ve read the Trixie Belden books, you’re probably taking a walk down memory lane right now, thinking about Jim Frayne (the original bad boy hero–ooh…he’s a runaway, but secretly a millionaire) Honey Wheeler, and all the other Bob-Whites. If you haven’t read the books, in a nutshell, Trixie Belden is a headstrong thirteen year-old with an uncanny knack for stumbling upon mysteries that she and her friends have to solve.
Talking to Colleen got me thinking about the TB series and I began poking around on eBay (always a dangerous endeavor), and I bought a few of the books with the thought that I might try to collect all of the series. I read the first book over the weekend, and wow–did that ever bring me back in time about twenty years. Brought back a lot of memories… by the way, what the heck are “dungarees”?
So now I’m curious–do any of you have similarly nostalgic feelings for a particular book or series? And anyone else out there a former Trixie Belden fan?
