Interview & Giveaway with Outing the Quarterback Author Tara Lain

I WOULD LIKE TO APOLOGIZE TO TODAY’S GUEST.

DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THIS POST IS GOING UP LATE.

Outing The Quarterback(Long Pass Chronicles Series, Bk #1)

By Tara Lain
Will Ashford lives in two closets. He meets his wealthy father’s goals as both the quarterback for the famous SCU football team and a business major, but secretly he attends art school and longs to live as a painter. And he’s gay. But if he can win the coveted Milton Scholarship for art, he’ll be able to break from his father at the end of his senior year.
In a painting master class, Will meets his divergent opposite, Noah Zajack. A scarred orphan who’s slept on park benches and eaten from trash cans, Noah carefully plans his life and multiple jobs so he has money and time to go to art school. Will’s problems seem like nothing compared to Noah’s. Noah wants the scholarship too and may have a way to get it since the teacher of his class has designs on him, a plan Will isn’t happy about.
When a gossipmonger with a popular YouTube channel finds evidence that Will is gay, the quarterback’s closet doors begin to crumble. Hounded by the press and harassed by other players, Will has to choose. Stay in the closet and keep his family’s wealth, or let the doors fall off and walk out with nothing. Nothing but Noah.

Has met his match
Miss Penelope Rose knows the rules of marriage among members of the ton better than most. Her own unsuccessful attempts at matrimony did not stop her from becoming London’s most exclusive matchmaker.

ROMANCING ROBIN HOOD by Jenny Kane

Dr Grace Harper has loved the stories of Robin Hood ever since she first saw them on TV as a girl. Now, with her fortieth birthday just around the corner, she’s a successful academic in Medieval History, with a tenured position at a top university.

But Grace is in a bit of a rut. She’s supposed to be writing a textbook on a real-life medieval gang of high-class criminals – the Folvilles – but she keeps being drawn into the world of the novel she’s secretly writing – a novel which entwines the Folvilles with her long-time love of Robin Hood – and a feisty young girl named Mathilda, who is the key to a medieval mystery…

Meanwhile, Grace’s best friend Daisy – who’s as keen on animals as Grace is on the Merry Men – is unexpectedly getting married, and a reluctant Grace is press-ganged into being her bridesmaid. As Grace sees Daisy’s new-found happiness, she starts to re-evaluate her own life. Is her devotion to a man who may or may not have lived hundreds of years ago really a substitute for a real-life hero of her own? It doesn’t get any easier when she meets Dr Robert Franks – a rival academic who Grace is determined to dislike but finds herself being increasingly drawn to…

HOW TO HANDLE A HEARTBREAKER!


harteHOW TO HANDLE A HEARTBREAKER by Marie Harte

HE CAN’T GET HER OUT OF HIS HEAD

It’s lust at first sight when Brody Singer first lays eyes on Abby Dunn. The dark-haired beauty looks a lot like a woman he once knew, who died years ago. At first, Brody fears his attraction is a holdover from that secret crush, but Abby’s definitely different. She’s a lot shyer, a lot sexier, and despite her attempts to dissuade his interest, absolutely mesmerizing.

 

SHE CAN’T GET HIM OUT OF HER BOOKS

Abby isn’t having it. She’s still trying to put her last disastrous relationship behind her and overcome the flaws her ex wouldn’t let her forget. But somehow Brody isn’t getting the hint. It doesn’t help that when writing her steamy novels, she keeps casting Brody as the hero.

Brody is more than happy to serve as her muse and eager to help make sure her “research” is authentic. But when their research turns into something real…will she choose her own happily ever after?

Are you attending any conventions in 2014? If so, what are the top three reasons as to why you like/choose them?
I’ll be attending the Emerald City Writer’s Conference, and I can’t wait. My top three reasons for attending are networking, meeting readers, and it’s fun.

What is your favorite romance genre and what author makes you absolutely swoon?

I’m a sucker for erotic romance in any subgenre. I like the physical passion that accompanies the love. There are many authors who make me swoon, so I’d have a hard time choosing just one.

What is your dream vacation spot?

A deserted Caribbean island where my cabana boy can fan me in my lounger while I can absorb the sun, listen to the waves roll in and out, and feel the wind kiss my face.

What do you think has been the most important moment or event of your life so far? And why do you feel that way?

I’ve had so many important events in my life. Joining the USMC, having my children, moving across the country and starting over. But it’s funny. I was just talking to my boys today, and I realized the exact moment I wanted to be a writer—a monumental point in my life. I was in sixth grade and we’d had an English writing assignment. My teacher read my work aloud to the class, because I’d incorporated the students and teacher into my story, and everyone loved it. That warm fuzzy feeling stuck with me. I wanted to bring that joy to others, so that same happiness I felt after reading a book could be shared. I love my job.

Is there anything else you would like our readers to know?

That I have a monthly newsletter to keep up on contests, releases and updates. It’s low volume and filled with insider news. Sign up and see.

Thanks for having me!

IMMINENT DANGER by Dee J. Adams

For Abbey Washington, dancing is more than a dream, it’s a way to forget her past. But being at the wrong place at the wrong time makes her the sole witness to a stabbing and brings back horrible memories. Since the killers saw her just as clearly as she saw them, Abbey is now a loose end that needs to be tied up.

Blake St. John is working toward his PI license and hopes to find the man who hurt his brother in a kidnapping. He quit chasing his quiet co-worker, Abbey, months ago. But now that she needs protection, he takes on the role of bodyguard and all the feelings he tried to bury for her come back with a vengeance.

Abbey’s past makes it hard to trust and an attempt on her life forces her to realize that time is running out as the killers get closer. Now, she must risk it all or face a life without the one man who showed her how to love.
