MFRW Blog Hop: Firsts!

by - February 10, 2013

The MFRW (Marketing For Romance Writers) Blog Hop is all about firsts—first kiss, first love, first whatever. So I’m talking about my first book for Entangled Publishing and the first in my series.


REAL MEN DON’T BREAK HEARTS is the story of Nate and Ally, two people with a bumpy history together, two people who are trying to break free of lifetime habits and make new lives for themselves, two people who suddenly find themselves attracted to each other despite their mutual dislike.



Ally Griffin is horrified to learn her new landlord is none other than the infuriating playboy Nate Hardy—the man she blames for getting her jilted at the altar six years ago. Plus, now her ex-fiancé is back in their hometown of Burronga, Australia, to marry his beautiful new bride…for real this time. Everybody’s treating Ally with kid gloves, as though she’s still heartbroken, but she’s just fine, thank you very much.

Nate Hardy is tired of his high-flying city career and bachelor lifestyle and is looking for something more real. The last thing he needs is to find himself undeniably attracted to Ally, the woman with whom he never saw eye-to-eye. But is he even capable of what Ally wants and deserves?
As Ally tries to pull her life out of the rut it’s fallen in, she doesn't count on Nate stirring up her emotions. A short-term fling with the resident bad boy is practically irresistible, but only if she can guard her heart…


I was truly delighted when Entangled Publishing accepted my book for their Bliss line and even more excited that I could write further books in my REAL MEN series. The next book to come out will feature Tyler, Ally’s best friend.


Blog hops are all about giveaways, and in keeping with the theme of Firsts, I’m giving away one ebook copy of my first book to be published, WHEN HARRIET CAME HOME (Carina Press, Oct 2011). Getting my first publishing offer was a memorable day for me. I was fortunate to work with a talented editor who guided me and taught me so much.


WHEN HARRIET CAME HOME was a Top Pick at Night Owl Reviews. For a chance to win this book just leave a comment below and include an email address. (Giveaway open internationally)
