Never say never . . .

Romance isn’t an option for Holly Greenwood. With her wedding planner career on the line she needs to stay focused, and that means pleasing her demanding boss, not getting distracted by her mind-alteringly hot neighbor . . .

Ex-Marine Kevin Vandemeer craves normalcy. Instead, he has a broken-down old house in need of a match and some gasoline, a meddling family, and the uncanny ability to attract the world’s craziest women. At least that last one he can fix: he and his buddies have made a pact to swear off women, and this includes his sweetly sexy new neighbor.

After one hot night that looks a whole lot like a disaster in the light of day, Kevin and Holly are about to learn that true love doesn’t play by the rules . . .

final-coverJen: Today we welcome Samantha Allard to Romancing the Book. Samantha, will you share a short bio with us?
Samantha: Sam likes to tell stories which feature very human characters, even if those characters sprout fur or can conjure fire with a click of their fingers. She has been writing for over a decade and has been published for the last two years.

She currently lives in the UK with her son, partner and dog. She hasn’t really mastered sleep yet and can often be found with a cup of coffee in one hand and typing on a keyboard with the other.


Jen: Tell us a little about your newest release.
Samantha: Moon has gone through several forms. Originally it was a e-short series and then all the stories were combined into one volume. Now it’s been heavily revised, edited and it’s a stronger story because of it. It’s the first in a series featuring my heroine Rachel Valentine, a human girl with the potential to become so much more.

Top 5 Things I Do When Procrastinating

I am an avid procrastinator. I avoid working on the things that require (no, demand) my immediate attention until the last possible moment. I procrastinate with a purpose. I am the laziest over-achiever you will ever meet. I conserve energy by procrastinating and lingering. My plots have time to marinate and to tumble through the endless maze of mind. I prefer to call my procrastination deep work, which is defined as “the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It’s a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time.”

But the world calls me a procrastinator.

Odd Romantic Gestures That Will Melt Your Heart
By Jannine Gallant

Thanks for having me on your blog today! Wilde One is the first book in my new romantic suspense series, Born To Be Wilde. I’m excited to share a little about it with everyone because out of the eighteen books I’ve written, this one was probably the most fun. I had to ask myself why, and one of the answers was my hero. Griff is real. He has quirks that are relatable. He’s always hungry and eats constantly. Such a guy… He speaks first and thinks later. He’s a man’s man. But he’s also sexy and funny and tries really hard. However, when it comes to what women expect, he’s pretty darn clueless.

Here’s an example of Griff, figuring it out a little too late…

He wiped perspiration off his brow with the back of his hand. Ainslee had accused him of treating her like a cheap hook-up. He certainly hadn’t thought of her that way. The woman was pure class with an innocent air and a go get ’em attitude. Her independent spirit was a huge turn-on. So when she’d started talking about arranging her life around his plans… Another deep sigh stirred the hot, moist air. He’d overreacted. Hell, in his mind, he’d turned a casual comment on her part into a signed proclamation of intent. If he went in for a colonoscopy right now, the only thing the doctor would find up there was his head, complete with his foot in his mouth.
