My not-so-secret affair with romance novels
Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan.
Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson…even if it kills her.
Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.
WRITER’S CORNER: Where the Author Likes to Write and WhyI prefer writing at my desk, which is in my dining room and central to the rest of the house, for two reasons. First, I hate feeling isolated, and the space ensures that I can do what I do best while keeping an eye on my kids. Second, it’s my favorite spot to write, especially early in the morning, because it’s surrounded by windows overlooking my garden and when the sun rises everything glows with warmth. Throughout spring and summer, I open the windows and let the breeze flow in, and that just puts me in the best, most relaxing mood, which seems to be perfect for writing.
