My not-so-secret affair with romance novels

Blog Tour: LIVE FOR YOU – Marquita Valentine

On the surface, twenty-two year old Cole Morgan is exactly what any girl would be proud to take home to meet her parents: He’s charming, intensely handsome and goal-oriented…Only he has some secrets of his own, which include provoking bar fights and a former drug-addict of a mother slowly wasting away in a medical facility.
At barely twenty, Violet Lynn is Country Music’s hottest star, until one night of partying gets out of control. Violet ends up in jail and on TMZ. Suddenly, she’s the girl least likely to be invited anywhere. Sick of the drama and keeping secrets, she runs away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi to her grandmother’s home in Forrestville, North Carolina.
A chance meeting knocks Cole off his feet, but he doesn’t recognize Violet for who she is. In fact no one does and Violet plans to keep it that way.
Circumstances, however annoying, keep throwing Violet and Cole together. Unable to stop themselves they give into the inevitable.
But when Nashville is ready to forgive and forget, Violet is forced to choose between Cole and claiming her spot as the new and improved Princess of Country Music.
Will Violet and Cole have the courage to live for their dreams…Or their hearts?

An exclusive excerpt:

One of Cole’s hands goes to the towel, to the very spot where it’s tucked inside. He fiddles with the material and it drops lower, so does my gaze.
“Let me change, first, since this towel offends your delicate sensibilities. Then I’ll let you take the cake holder back home with you.” Before I can turn him down again, he walks away, pauses and shoots me a wicked grin over his shoulder.
That grin does things to parts of me that have no business coming to life. Heat skims my body. “What?”
“I sure hate offending you.” He drops the towel, exposing his very fine butt. There are dimples on each side and at the base of his back. “Close your mouth, darlin’.” Muscles ripple and flow as he strides into his bedroom.
I snap my jaw shut.

Lisa Kleypas, Carly Phillips and Rachel Gibson are her favorite contemporary authors.
Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man — and if that doesn’t work, they can console themselves with cheesy tatertots.
She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.
