it's all about the wheels

It's always a big deal for me, picking the right car for my hero and heroine.
Sometimes they are in jokes - cars my family have owned over the years (such as the red mini with the white roof my heroine drove in GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS, or Harry the vintage Holden the heroine drove in MARRIAGE MAKE-OVER).

But mostly it comes down to the fact that I'm a closet metal head.  That I have imaginings of one day owning  my own grunty red Firebird like Pippa in WHEN HONEY GOT MARRIED...  Or the elegant black Jag XJS like Danny in MILLIONAIRE TO THE RESCUE.

But mostly they give me the excuse to search Pinterest for wheels that make me drool.

Here's Nate's car in my current Harlequin KISS release, FAKING IT TO MAKING IT.  Puuuurty, huh?

out now world-wide!

Just thought I'd share a couple of pictures that served me well during the writing of FAKING IT TO MAKING IT (out now worldwide).

When Saskia first spies our boy its from his profile on an online dating website.  And honestly, if you had this looking back at you, how could you resist?!

six sentence sunday :: faking it to making it

As a part of the super fun Six Sentence Sunday, here are a random six sentences as taken from my latest Harlequin KISS novel FAKING IT TO MAKING IT.  Take it away Saskia and Nate!

   “You’ve really eaten live witchetty grubs?  And...”  He glanced down, “You were an extra on The Hobbit?”
   A smile hooked the corner of her lips, soft pink and warm.  “All of the above.  They taste better warm.  Like nuts.  Witchetty grubs, I mean.  Not Hobbits,” she corrected.

RELEASE DAY! Faking It to Making It

Out today, world-wide, comes FAKING IT TO MAKING IT!

Happily never after?

Natural born charmer, Nate Mackenzie, is in the middle of a plus-one dilemma. Wedding dates inevitably take one look at the bride and measure Nate for a beach house, a chocolate Lab and a diamond solitaire. Worse, going stag will leave him at the mercy of a set-up by his ever-hopeful sisters.

Enter Saskia Bloom - a bohemian beauty researching online dating. She already has a house (ramshackle), and a dog (rescued), and an ex who turned commitment into a four letter word. And since there's no shortage of sexual attraction between them he’ll give her all the data she’ll ever need!  But when the fake affair starts to feel real, will they even make it to the wedding? Or can they beat the odds and make it happily ever after.

Don't forget to follow my Facebook page for weekly #KISSkiss cards - scrumptious little snack-sized bites of the story.
