Ready for Valentine’s?

Okay, being single at the moment, I’ll admit Valentine’s Day isn’t my all time favourite holiday — although this year I have a couple of reasons to be more excited about it than usual. First, my CP Molly O’Keefe is speaking at the Toronto Reference Library that day as part of Keep Toronto Reading.

As if that weren’t enough Valentine’s excitement, one of my TKA sistah’s, Renee Luke, has a new book out, containing three novellas that sound great!
Just listen to this!
Romance has never been as temptingly sweet as it is in this trio of erotic treats from an author who knows how to seduce…and deliver.

In Gimme Some Sugar…Jackson never realized how much he loved his best friend Alexis—until her wedding day was on the horizon. Now all he has to do is convince her that their harmless kissing games over the years weren’t so harmless after all. In fact, they may end up breaking his heart.

In 4 U Sweetheart…Toni never imagined that a night of speed-dating could lead to something serious. But three minutes with the hunk of her dreams changed that. Especially after he slipped her a candy heart that said “Pick Me”…

In Dipped in Chocolate…Nathan wants a special delicacy for his sister’s bridal shower. He finds it in Jayla, the owner of a decadent chocolate shop. As hot as she is, Jayla’s not looking for a fling. As hot as he’s getting, Nathan may have to abandon his bachelor ways for a piece of chocolate that’s a little more solid.

Who needs a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day? I’m going to date this book.
Here are the book’s vitals:
Dipped in ChocolateNAL / SignetISBN: 0451220315 (trade paperback)
February 2007
You can find Renee on the web at She also writes young adult books as Nyomi Scott.
Congratulations Renee! Can’t wait to read it.

    I love that cover! It really is inviting and sexy all at the same time. I’d buy it for that alone. It sounds awesome.

    Great, now I’m hungry for chocolate.

    (Of course, I was before I saw the cover but…)

    I like the ideas of novellas (having a short attention…what, what was I talking about again?).

    I read the book already and it’s delicious. They read like movies to me — and I mean that in a highly complimentary way. Very 3-D characters and fun stories.

    Hmm, gotta get me some erotic fiction and chocolate in time for Valentine’s. Thanks for “turning me on” to Rene Luke’s books, Maureen.

    The cover on this is yummy.

    The Cover is awesome and would draw me right away; but that Dipped in Chocolate story sounds great, as I will be alone this Valentine’s since hubby is away, not that we really celebrate it what with two kids.

    Geez, like Kimber now I want a whole load of chocolate. So much for the diet tonight.

    Okay, Maureen, you’ve had this post up long enough. I’m going to have to give you full blame for that disaster I call my diet.’

    BTW…did you see Hannibal Rising? Not that I reco it (it was horrible – thankfully I saw it a free sneak) but it was a good example of why backstory is not necessary or can even ruin a story (Silence Of The Lambs).
