Join the Dreaming of Books #Giveaway Hop! Win Autographed ARC ~ The Playboy of Rome + Gift Card



I'm always dreaming of books, whether I'm reading them or writing them. People ask me how I'm able to keep writing book after book and the truth is my imagination is full of imaginary characters--so many that I don't have time to write all of their stories. ;-)


Today I'm thrilled to be able to share with one lucky person an autographed ARC of my March release, THE PLAYBOY OF ROME. It is book #1 in the DeFiore Brothers duet. Book #2, BEST MAN FOR THE BRIDESMAID, will be released in April.



And since it's so cold out in my neck of the woods, I thought it'd be nice to toss in a $5 Starbucks gift card. I just love their steamy hot tea latte in the winter. :-)





Dante DeFiore stepped into the path of a young woman trying to skirt around the line at Ristorante Massimo. Her long blond hair swished over her shoulder as she turned to him. Her icy blue gaze met his. The impact of her piercing stare rocked him. He couldn’t turn away. Thick black eyeliner and sky-blue eye shadow that shimmered succeeded in making her stunning eyes even more extraordinary.

Dante cleared his throat. “Signorina, are you meeting someone?”

“No, I’m not.”

“Really?” He truly was surprised. “Someone as beautiful as you shouldn’t be alone.”

Her fine brows rose and a smile tugged at her tempting lips. He smiled back. Any other time, he’d have been happy to ask her to be his personal guest but not tonight. Inwardly he groaned. Why did he have to have his hands full juggling both positions of maître d’ and head chef when the most delicious creature was standing in front of him?

He choked down his regret. It just wasn’t meant to be. Tonight there was no time for flirting—not even with this stunning woman who could easily turn heads on the runways of Milan. 

He glanced away from her in order to clear his thoughts. Expectant looks from the people waiting to be seated reminded him of his duties. He turned back to those amazing blue eyes. “I hate to say this, but you’ll have to take your place at the end of the line.”

“It’s okay.” Her pink glossy lips lifted into a knowing smile. “You don’t have to worry. I work here.”

“Here?” Impossible. He’d certainly remember her. By the sounds of her speech, she was American.

“This is Mr. Bianco’s restaurant, isn’t it?”

“Yes, it is.”

“Then I’m in the right place.”
