SWEET SATURDAY SAMPLE - MOVIE LOVERS

Welcome! Here's a sweet tidbit from my newest release in the Hollywood Hearts series, MOVIE LOVERS. It's 3 a.m. on Christmas. Jake, blanket wrapped around his waist, and Grace in her robe are watching the snow fall in the living room of her sister's apartment.
“You miss your mom, don’t you?” 
She tore her gaze from his body and rested it on his face as she gave a brief nod in answer to his question. “She tried so hard to make it up to us for being a one-parent family. She was like having two parents. Holidays were special times. We all stopped working to play together.”
"You worked as a kid?” 
“Yep. Mama’s helper at thirteen. Babysitting when I was fourteen.”
“Me, too. First delivering papers at eleven, then in my dad’s auto shop.” 
“You know car repair?” 
“Like the back of my hand. When I graduated high school, my dad wanted me to join him.” 
“Is he disappointed you didn’t?” 
“Not anymore. Since I’ve made a couple of movies. But he was at first. We didn’t speak for a while.”
Gracie touched his shoulder, ignoring the sizzle that leapt into her body at the contact with his skin.
 A bit about the book:

Can revenge turn to regret? Humiliated by a slick producer and her sister’s co-star, Grace plots payback. But the scheme turns sour, robbing Grace of the only happiness she’s known since the death of her beloved mother. Can she regain her self-respect and the respect of the man she loves?

WHEN THE SPARKS FLY! 4th of JULY BLOG HOP! WIN A FREE BOOK!


THE WINNERS ARE: SHERRY, JEAN MP & BOOK ATTICT! CONGRATUALTIONS AND THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR STOPPING BY.
Welcome to the 4th of July blog hop! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Fourth. I'm celebrating by giving away any of my books -- reader's choice -- to 3 lucky commenters. Winners will be selected from the comments below. Here's an excerpt from my new release MOVIE LOVERS. 
Grace Brewster couldn’t control her breathing. Alone with Gunther Quill. Little me with one of the biggest producers in Hollywood. He leaned against the corner of his desk. The sleeves of his white shirt were rolled up to the elbows, the neck, unbuttoned. His light blue striped tie hung loose. Grace noticed his perfect haircut and the whitest smile she’d ever seen. Brown hair going gorgeously gray at the temples and broad shoulders drew her attention.

No wedding ring. No family pictures on his desk or credenza. He’s sex on wheels.

His dark brown eyes feasted on her body, not missing one curve or her dangerously low-cut top. Suddenly feeling naked, Grace leaned back a little in her chair, folding her arms across her breasts. Her rich brown curls fell loosely about her shoulders. She blinked at him with the same big, ocean blues as her sister, famous actress Cara Brewster.
“Tell me a little about your script, Ms. Brewster. Does it have a love scene?”
She gulped, her mouth dry as day-old bread. “Of course.”
“Tell me…no, no. Show me.” His eyes danced as he strolled closer to her.
“Show you?” Her palms began to sweat as she rose slowly from her chair. “How?”

A quick "thank you" to our forefathers for making the Unites States possible. 





Now tell me in a comment, who is your favorite movie star?? Don't forget your EMAIL ADDRESS to be entered. Any comments without an email will not be entered to win. WINNERS WILL BE CHOSEN ON MONDAY.
BIG SHOUT-OUT TO DREA FOR ALL HER HARD WORK PUTTING THIS TOGETHER!

"LOVE TALK" ADORA SMUTZ -- INTERVIEW GREY ANDREWS FROM THE MARRIAGE LIST

Back by popular demand, this interview, arranged by Jean with Adora, is a fan favorite. 
INTERVIEW WITH GREY ANDREWS FROM THE MARRIAGE LIST

LOVE TALK WITH ADORA SMUTZ
We are joined by my gorgeous, sexy cousin, Ima Slutz, today. She’ll be subbing for me when I go on vacation with one of Jean’s sexy heroes. She’s here to learn the ropes. Today we will be interviewing that devastating man, hero of “The Marriage List”, Grey Andrews!
Adora: Good morning, Grey, how are you?
Grey:   Fine, Adora. You’re looking good for such an early hour. *gaze sweeps over her body*
Adora: Thank you, Grey. *bats eyes*, hey, are you free for a week in February to go to one of those “bathing suit” optional beaches with me?
Grey:   I don’t think Carrie would approve, Adora, do you?
Adora: Who cares what she thinks? All right, Ima, on to the interview. So, I hear you’ve been screwing everything in sight, supposedly looking for a wife. *guffaws behind hand*, yeah right.
Grey: *blushes* I don’t know about the screwing around thing, but I have been looking for a wife. (Grey nervously loosens his tie.)

Adora: Why would a gorgeous rich guy like you want to get married when you could make it with any woman you want?
Grey: Adora! I thought I was supposed to talk about the book, The Marriage List.
Adora: We are…but doing it my way. So give, Grey. What’s up with this stupid list thing, anyway?
Grey: Well, I saw how unhappy my buddies were and so I…
Adora: BORING! Come on, Grey, you’re deep-sixing the whole interview here. Get to the good stuff. How many woman do you think you’ve actually slept with on your marriage “quest.”
Grey: *turns redder*, I’ve lost count, I think…
Adora: Come on! We all know every guy keeps a tally. Is it in the hundreds? The thousands?
Grey: WHAT? Hey, what’s going on here? Where’s Jean.
Adora: She’s off working on a new book in the Hollywood Hearts series. So tell me…are you as good in bed as they say?
Grey: *face turning almost purple*, JEEEAAAANNNN!!!!
Adora: Do you scream like that in bed. God, you’re a good-looking guy, Grey. Why settle for Carrie when you can have me and maybe Ima, here?
Grey: Where is Jean? I’m going to kill her.
Adora: A “quickie” with Grey Andrews is all we have time for today. Hope you all have a happy and healthy New Year and come back every week for more “Love Talk,” with me, Adora Smutz!
Grey: Wait! Adora! Let me talk about the book…about Carrie, how beautiful and smart she is…
Adora: Let’s continue here in my dressing room, Grey. Now what were you saying…
Ima: This is Ima Slutz, signing off for LOVE TALK!

A bit about the book


Can happily ever after start with a list? Grey Andrews thinks so. After ten years of working, saving and investing, Grey finally achieved a level of wealth that allows him to do what he wants with his life. He needs a woman to share it with, but not any woman, the perfect woman. A woman who has the three essential qualities on his marriage list. But after three years of searching he isn’t any closer to finding her than he was when he started out.
 Carrie Tucker, an aspiring mystery writer and divorcĂ©e struggling to make it in the world of advertising, turned her focus from men to her career after dating too many creeps and losers. She’s finally earned her big break, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the first female creative director in a hot New York ad agency. So what if it means working nights and weekends? It’s not like she has a social life anyway.
