Living the good life in a big city for many years, Nora Trinity
ends up a statistic after the magazine she works for makes cutbacks. Despite a family

small town of Canyon Junction, Arizona, with forgiveness on her mind. When she
is hired by a local rancher to help with his ranching magazine, she finds herself
profoundly attracted to him, and the feeling is mutual. The thing is, her sexy boss
comes as a package deal, and his little girl is immediately drawn to her. It’s not
just about two hearts taking a chance now—or two people falling in
love… Nora has to be sure of what she wants before she takes on the cowboy and
his child.
Tristan Carlson does the best he can to raise his four-year-old
daughter on his own. His mother remains on the Double Dutch to lend a hand—giving

ranching magazine. His pretty, new assistant is everything he wants in a woman,
including her ginger-red hair. He finds it hard to keep her out of his arms—especially
since she doesn’t mind being in his embrace. But from his experience with
women lately, he’s learned that some don’t want a ready-made family. This one seems
different, and he’s falling hard. But, there’s his little blue-eyed girl, and he’ll
protect Destiny’s heart with everything within him. Until he knows for sure…

Tea for Two
Title Tea for Two
Genre short contemporary romance
Author Name Marilyn Baxter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Take one tea shop-owning divorcee, add a new-to-town attorney
and two meddling grandmothers and the result is a romantic brew that will make everyone’s
dreams come true.

Interview with Marilyn Baxter

Why did you write this
book?
Ever since I experimented with hot tea with milk and sugar after
reading a Miss Marple mystery, I’ve been hooked on tea. Glance around my kitchen
and you’ll find numerous types of tea and teapots and teacups and saucers. I love
to have afternoon tea and was able to do a fancy one at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta last summer and at Fortnum & Mason (the Queen’s
grocer) in London
last fall. So it just seemed natural that someday I’d write about a heroine who
owned a tea shop. The plot and characters took a few twists and turns before it
finally morphed into Tea for Two, but that’s half the fun of writing – seeing just
how stubborn and obstinate your characters can be.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
Contemporary romance and romantic suspense
What is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own characters)?
It’s a tie between Milla Edge in Linda Howard’s Cry No More and
Blair Mallory in Linda Howard’s To Die For. Milla suffered a horrendous loss and
drew on strength she never knew she had, then turned her tragedy into a resource
to help others. I can relate, not to the same kind of loss, but to discovering inner
strength and using that to pay it forward. Blair? She came along when I needed to
laugh, and boy did she make me laugh. Most people don’t take cheerleading seriously.
If they only knew… And thus begins Blair’s story.
Do you enjoy films and/or
TV shows? Which are your favorites?
I am a crime drama junkie. My DVR is regularly set to record
shows like Law & Order: SVU, CSI, Bones, Castle, Rizolli & Isles, Major
Crimes and Elementary. I also adore Downton Abbey, and don’t tell, but I’m a big
Survivor fan. All that scheming and making and breaking alliances – well, it makes
my life seem pretty darned normal. The last movies I saw were The Monuments Men,
Philomena and Academy Award winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom. Loved them
all. Also don’t tell, but I’m eagerly awaiting the next X-Men film. Can you say
Hugh Jackman? ;-)
What are you working on
at the moment, and what are we likely to see from you in the coming months?
I’m in the midst of plotting a story set in Ireland, where I had the privilege to visit last
fall. I have a couple plots in mind. I’m fleshing out characters and trying to see
who talks loudest. On May 13 I will have a novella released by Boroughs Publishing
Group. It’s called Better as a Memory and is a story about secret pregnancy, reunited
lovers, a matchmaking mother and of course, happily ever after.
Please tell us about your
latest book.
Tea for Two is part of Boroughs’ Lunchbox Romance line. These
are stories between 6,000 and 12,000 words, and are designed to be read during your
lunch hour. The various titles already published in the line run the gamut from

may be small, but inside there’s still a central love story and HEA.

Author Bio

In 2001 Marilyn discovered romance novels quite by accident,
which led to a renewed interest in writing. She’s had over forty stories published
in the confessions and romance magazines and taught a class in how to effectively
write for this genre. Her most recent release is Tea for Two, a Lunchbox Romance
from Boroughs Publishing Group, and it will be followed later
in 2014 by a novella entitled Better as a Memory.
She is a member of Romance Writers of America and her local RWA
chapter, Heart of Dixie Romance Writers. Her involvement on the local and national
level has combined to give her a great love of the romance genre and to develop
friendships that span the globe.
In addition to reading and writing, Marilyn loves to knit simple
things, cook in the crockpot and garden in a few pots on her patio. Her motto is
“Have passport, will travel,” and last fall she added Ireland and Wales
to the list of 32 states and 21 foreign countries she has visited.
A native of North Carolina,
she came to Huntsville, Alabama by way of Frankfurt, Germany.
She has lived here longer than anywhere else and calls it home. After raising two
great sons, she loves to dote on her two granddaughters. And somewhere amidst all
the above, she fits in a day job as an administrative assistant for a boutique law
firm.

About the Book

Title Last Chance
Genre Contemporary Romance
Author Martha O’Sullivan
Book heat level (Based on movie ratings): R
In Second Chance, star-crossed lovers Lindsay Foster and Brian
Rembrandt get a second chance at love amid the brilliant blue waters of Lake Tahoe. In Chance Encounter, Delaney Richards and Mike
Savoy’s quest for love takes them from Tahoe’s fawn-colored shores to the serpentine
streets of San Francisco.
And the heat in Last Chance comes not from the blazing summer sun and rugged, white-hot
sand, but from the prurient fervor between friends-turned-lovers Moira Brody and
Paul Webster.
Here’s a blurb from Last Chance (Chances trilogy #3):
Moira knows Paul better than he knows himself. But neither one
of them know that he is as in love with her as she is with him. These lifelong friends
will have to look at each other with fresh eyes and brave hearts. And even the single-digit
temperatures and snowcapped peaks of the Lake Tahoe
winter are no match for their long-bridled desire.

Loving Link 
About the
Book
Title Loving Link
Genre Contemporary Rock Star Romance
Author Name T.D. Hassett
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Blurb
What
happens backstage doesn’t always stay backstage. Recent college grad Madison Clarke
shared a sizzling one-night stand with bad boy guitarist Link Jacks. She expected
it to be just one incredible memory but a well placed web cam will make her indiscretion
a viral sensation and have consequences for both of them.
Link
Jacks is done with women and determined to focus solely on music and rock-band Becket’s
upcoming album. He’s been living as a marketing-prop bad-boy rock star for so long
he doesn’t remember who he really is anymore. Not until he meets Madison, the emotionally
guarded and theoretically off-limits younger sister of his best friend’s wife.
Madison
wants to get her fledgling tattoo career off the ground and stop relying on the
generous charity of her wealthy brother-in-law to get by. She knows she should never
get involved with the likes of Link but his presence is downright intoxicating.
Her indiscretion will lead to Internet sex video and media frenzy. Their one wild
night of passion will have scandalous repercussions and force each of them to confront
their inner fears and emotional demons.

Interview with Link Jacks

Tell us about yourself,
please.
I used
to be a pretty normal guy. I grew up middle class, raised by two music teachers.
I had a talent for music so I got a partial scholarship to Julliard. Never had much
luck with girls at least not until I was discovered and joined rock band Becket.
Once the image consultants, wardrobe people and public relations advisors got their
hooks into me, well life changed. All the sudden I couldn’t keep the women away
and everyone wanted a piece of me. I’m not really the bad boy monster the press
makes me out to be, but it sells albums and keeps my name current. At least that’s
the way I used to feel before I met her, Madison.
She brought out the real me and made me strong enough to face the world as myself.
Oh, I’m also thirty years old and questioning everything.
What is it that you want,
but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
I want
Madison but I want
her fully in my world. She’s determined to not disappoint her sister by hooking
up with me but I know I can get her family to see things my way. I’m not who the
all think I am, I’m the real me when she’s around. I want to wake up with her every
day of my life but she just keeps on running.
What’s your external complication?
In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most.
I know
she’s attracted to me; she even seems to care. The trouble is being with me has
practically ruined her life. She lost her job, she’s been shamed in front of everyone
she knows and the whole on-line world got to see her fucking me. The press is hassling
her, people are giving her the stink eye and I can’t get her to forgive me for something
I didn’t really even do.
What is your family like?
My mom
passed away but my dad is still around. He’s actually part of the problem. He thinks
the best way for me to stay on top is to keep my name in the tabloids. He’s always
working on some scenario that will get me press, whether it be dates with supermodels
or rumors of trashed hotel rooms and drug addictions.
What special skills do
you rely on?
I am
an incredible pianist and guitar player. I can really sing although I usually only
sing back up. I love building small models and like to think I can teach anyone
how to play an instrument – heck, I wanted to be a music teacher when I was growing
up. I also have a head for business – I sure don’t want to be hopping around on
stage in my fifties so I have diversified.

About the Writer

Why did you choose to
write about this character?
He seemed like such a loveable, misunderstood bad boy and he
made my pulse quicken just thinking about him.
Was there anything you
discovered about this character that was a surprise to you?
When I started writing about Link I didn’t expect him to be so
smart. I was originally going with musical prodigy with a make over. He came into
his own and proved to be a truly kind person, motivated business man and stand up
guy.
What do you want to write
next?
I am finishing up a third book right now. It is a bit of a romantic
mystery that I hope will give readers a sexy love story and a who dunnit all at
the same time.
What other character from
this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
I have already begun writing about the female protagonist’s best
friend, Darling Roberts. Link will also feature in the book as he really wants to
see his friend find love, even if that means a little manipulation!
