    Perfectly ChristmasPerfectly Christmas (Book 5, The Perfectly Series)

    On the first day of Christmas, his true love said to him, “Sorry, I have to work.”

    That’s the life of a surgeon, and Dr. Madison Hayes wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Dr. Quinn Malone has another priority. In the countdown to Christmas, he needs to convince his old flame that there’s more to life – and love – than the job itself.

    This time, his heart is in it for the long haul. Really.

    Romantic and . . . complicated – it’s Perfectly Christmas!

    Sharing the Awesome Author - Tara Taylor Quinn

    My life is filled with love and laughter thanks to the amazing people I get to hang out with. As well as being awesome, they’re creative, talented, generous, and fun! I thought you might like to meet some of the authors I know, so I’ve asked them to come and give us a behind-the-scenes look at what they’re passionate about. I have to warn you though – creativity is contagious!

     

    Today's guest author is Harlequin Superromance author Tara Taylor Quinn. She's written over 80 novels - wow!!  She's a USA TODAY bestselling author with more than seven million copies sold (the mind boggles!). She is known for delivering intense, emotional fiction. Tara is a past president of Romance Writers of America. She has also appeared on TV across the country, including CBS Sunday Morning.

     

    Tara, what genre do you write? T: I write romance, romantic suspense, and women’s fiction.

    Besides writing, what are you passionate about? T: I support the National Domestic Violence Hotline. If you or someone you know might be a victim of domestic violence in the United States, please contact 1-800-799-7233. For a list of resources in Canada click HERE

    It sounds like your latest release, Her Secret Life, addresses domestic violence - a conversation that never needs to stop. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers? T: Write. Don’t judge. Don’t validate. Don’t defend. Just write. Everything else will come in its time, but the first step is the most vital. And that’s to just write.

    Great advice! I found it really helpful to have 2 or 3 stories ready to go when a publisher accepted a manuscript. What song would be your theme song? T: Silence and I by Alan Parsons Project

    Sounds like me and writing too :D. What would you pick as a superpower? T: Telepathy – I would love to be able to send messages to my loved ones and to receive them as well. I actually fully believe this is possible if we are able to quiet our minds and go into deep enough focus.

    Love it. What’s your favourite dessert? T: Striped Delight – an old family recipe with a graham cracker based crust, chocolate pudding based center, and a whipped cream based top layer.

    Sounds delicious! Thank you very much for stopping by, Tara Taylor Quinn! It's been an honour and a pleasure 😀

    Enjoy an excerpt from Tara Taylor Quinn's latest release, Her Secret Life  

    “Uh-huh. Yes.”

    Mike Valentine listened unabashedly to the half he could hear of his lunch companion’s phone conversation the first Monday in March.

    “I know. Mmm-hmm.” Her tone was more flirty than not. Glancing at Mike, Kacey rolled her eyes. And then mouthed, Bo.

    A guy she’d been talking to in LA for the several months. She said she wasn’t in love with him, but she liked him a lot. He fit her life in the city. She’d never, ever bring Bo to Santa Raquel, which was where Mike lived, and where he and Kacey volunteered at a local domestic violence shelter, The Lemonade Stand. Bo was part of her Beverly Hills life. And, Mike assumed, her sexual partner.

    A subject that had nothing to do with Mike.

    “Okay, tomorrow night. But only if it’s just a few of us. I meant it when I told you I don’t want to go clubbing.”

    While she listened, she ate a French fry. Or as much of one as she’d allow herself. Just the tip. Off Mike’s plate.

    She fell for the wrong guys. It didn’t take a genius to figure that one out. Besides, she’d told him so herself.

    “No, I’m not going to change my mind…” Her tone of voice changed from playful to deadly serious.

    While she couldn’t seem to control her propensity to date the wrong types, she was determined to make serious changes to her life and had already.

    Like the drinking. She still did it. Socially. She might have been teetering on being a drunk, but she wasn’t an alcoholic. Her body didn’t have a chemical dependency on the stuff. And she hadn’t been drunk in ten months, not since she’d made up her mind to change her life. He knew…because she’d told him.

    “I do want to be with you! It’s the clubbing I don’t want.” She was smiling now—not at Mike. She’d never smiled at Mike that way.

    For which he was utterly thankful. That smile…it was the one reserved for the disposable men in Kacey’s life. The ones who were part of the soap opera star’s Hollywood life.

    He’d take friendship with her any day. Getting her inside scoop was a whole different kind of intimacy. A more lasting one.

    A Perfectly Unpredictable Moment

    I was at the train station yesterday, and I started chatting to a woman who was traveling to Montreal. She was flying to Paris and then taking a connecting flight to Nice. I asked her if she was attending the International Forum of Neuroscience. She said .... no. 😀

     

    Perfectly Unpredictable 

    Kalia Beck always dreamed of starting a family, living in a house with a white picket fence, and finding her soul mate. Just not in that order. Kalia is coping with an unplanned pregnancy when she learns the father has passed away. She soon finds out that single parenthood isn’t easy, especially when the only thing that soothes the baby is the guitar-playing of a reluctant and reclusive next-door neighbor.

    Mack Challen, lead guitarist in a rock and roll band, knows it takes a village to raise a child. He just doesn't think there's a village big enough to help “gay momma” and her screaming baby.

    Kalia and Mack aren't looking for love and aren't ready for each other, but when the future unfolds, it’s … Perfectly Unpredictable.
