My critique partner, the astoundingly talented Karen Stivali, has a brand new ebook from Ellora’s Cave today, titled Marry Me. In honor of the release and in the spirit of the title, I will purchase a copy of Marry Me for the person who tells me the best wedding reception story. It can be embarrassing (you tucked your dress into your pantyhose), steamy (nothing like a good grope on the dance floor), salacious (ditto for a roll in the coat closet), or stupid (really? you didn’t realize that guy you made out with was your cousin?). Just entertain me and the fine readers of my blog. I choose the winner at my own discretion, by the end of the day (Friday, June 1st). In the meantime, big congrats to Karen, and here’s more about Marry Me!
When British drummer Ben Davis lost his childhood sweetheart, he was certain he’d never love again. He focuses on music as his band rises to stardom. A never-ending stream of groupies satisfies his needs until he meets intriguing clothing designer Julia Jones.
Julia’s career rocketed from seamstress to up-and-coming designer for the A-list, but her personal life didn’t fare as well. Her last boyfriend crossed from controlling to violent and she vowed never to be in that position again.
Sparks fly the instant Ben and Julia meet, but she resists his intoxicating charms, certain a celebrity romance will bring only trouble. But before long the heat between them becomes undeniable and she allows him into her bed and her heart. The more in love Ben falls, the more he fears losing her. When Julia’s life is endangered, Ben’s reaction terrifies her, forcing them both to confront their biggest fears if they want a chance at a future together.
