Is It True: Unexpected by Valerie Ullmer @valerieullmer #RLFblog #GayRomance #ContemporaryPlay Is It True with today’s guest, author of Unexpected (A Unexpected Novel Book One), an MM Contemporary Erotic Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

A chance meeting will change their lives forever…

From the moment he entered the dark taproom, Caleb Hunt found himself drawn to the handsome man who sat alone at the end of the bar, away from the crowd. His interest in the dark-haired, muscled adonis took him by surprise, not remembering when he’d felt such hunger from a simple glimpse. Unable to stay away, he quickly found an open seat next to him and slid into it. When Ronan turned his ice-blue eyes to Caleb and introduced himself, his warm hand sent shivers of desire through his body and he was enthralled.

Ronan Scott’s boring Friday night had taken a turn for the better when Caleb took the seat next to him. Over the next few hours, he found Caleb easy to talk to and at the same time, he found that he couldn’t tear his gaze away from the beautiful man. Caleb captured his attention in a way that no other had for as long as he could remember. Taking a chance, he leaned forward and captured Caleb’s lips with his. And with the simple kiss, Ronan understood that Caleb would become an essential part of his life.

As Ronan and Caleb explore their new relationship and integrate their lives together, they realize that not everything will be so seamless…

Is It True: The Wedding Date by ZrinkaJelic @Firetulip #RLFblog #romance #comedyPlay Is It True with today’s guest Zrinka Jelic, author of The Wedding Date, a Romantic Comedy. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Nerissa (Neri) Runic, in her late thirties, single and overweight is deemed unmarriageable by her family. So she fabricated a story about dating Mark Warren, a sexy doctor and the gym owner she’s been ogling for months. She thinks none of her lies will come back to haunt her. When her mother RSVP s to the cousin’s wedding invitation on her behalf including a Plus One, Neri has no choice but to attend…or come clean and face her family’s scrutiny.

Frustrated with everyone trying to fix him up on a blind date, Mark Warren lied about dating an elusive redheaded member of his gym who caught his eye months ago. Only, he fully intends to turn this lie into truth. Once he musters enough courage to approach her, that is.

With hardly a month before his cousin’s wedding, he hopes his mother would reply to the invitation, declining his attendance. But getting out of this obligation is out of question. She expects him to reply with ‘happy to attend with a guest’.

When they find out they are forced to attend the same wedding, Mark and Neri must practice their ‘relationship’ in an effort to fool their families into thinking they are a real couple.

But the thin line between pretending and the real deal is easily crossed.

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I have five full length novels one novella and couple of short stories and a poem published prior to releasing this book.
this book is part of a series?
No, this is a stand-alone title.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
On occasion
you did research for this book?
True. As with every book I’ve written.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
True, there’s a dog named Tag in the book.
this book has more than one genre?
True, or could be true, it’s a romance and a comedy.
you speak more than one language?
True, my mother’s tongue is Croatian, but I’m from a costal part that has its own dialect which is very similar to Italian, but converted to our grammar. So I can converse in Italian, if you’re not in a hurry.
you grew up where you live now?
No, I grew up in the town of Zadar, in the province of Dalmatia, (yes, where the original Dalmatian dogs were bread, back then called Canis Dalmaticus and the early breeds looked different from what you see today).
you love to read?
Yes, of course. I only heard Danielle Steel say she doesn’t read when she’s working, which is always, for fear she writes something she read in another author’s book into her own.
you are never late?
Not true, or rather used to be true, before I had kids. They really have no concept of time.
you love pizza?
Yes and no, depends on the pizza.
you love sushi?
Vegetarian only, used to like fish, but not anymore.
you have a pet?
Unfortunately, no. Me and half of my and husband’s family are allergic to cats. Dogs are expensive to keep, and so are cats. I hear horror stories from my coworkers who are paying astronomical sums in veterinary bills. I don’t know how they can afford it.
