Blog Tour - Feasted On: Accidentally Married on Purpose by Rachel Harris | Interview, Review, & Novels/Gift Card Giveaway

Today I'm turning my blog over to Rachel Harris, who I interviewed about her novel "Accidentally Married on Purpose," which is the 3rd book in her Love & Games Series!!

ALSO -- Be sure to check out Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post to be able to sign up for this blog stop's GIVEAWAY(s)!! [Blog Tour will run from July 14 - 25, 2014]



My Q&A with Rachel Harris :

Jess : Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Rachel : I’m an author/homeschool mama who gets through each day with Diet Mountain Dew and laughing at myself. Also, I spend a good portion of my day making up random songs like my Ode to a Blueberry Muffin..., which sort of goes back to the laughing at myself part of my story :)

I’m blessed to call myself an author and I have the most incredible support team behind me—my husband is my rock, my parents live next door and offer plenty of babysitting, my street team is the most incredible group of people I’ve ever met, and I’ve befriended the most talented authors I’m grateful to now call friends.

Since I like all the things, I write YA, NA, and Adult fun and flirty romance about sassy girls-next-door and the hot guys that make them swoon. Reading is my addiction, chocolate is right up there, and I adore talking with readers :)

Jess : Please describe your heroine, from "Accidentally Married on Purpose," in one to two sentences.

Rachel : Sherry Robicheaux is a wild child who is addicted to love, romance novels, and fairy tales, yet she’s given up on the HEA when it comes to her own love life. Determined to have one last fling before finding the solution to her heartache—a Mr. Boring and Dependable—she sets off to land herself a roadie...only to wake up hitched to a world famous country artist (oops).

Jess : Which of your characters would you most & least like to invite to dinner, from which book and why?

Rachel : I’d most like to invite Sherry over for dinner because she’s cracked me up since the first book in the series ("Taste the Heat") and kept me giggling in book two ("Seven Day Fiance"). I knew that once she got her turn it’d be a crazy ride. And I was right. What I love most about her, though, is her huge heart, and I think we’d get along great.

Least like to invite to dinner? I’d have to go with the annoying reporter Tammy Paxton who makes life a little complicated for Tyler in "Accidentally Married on Purpose." Though, without her interference, who knows what would’ve happened. Besides, I kind of think she made have some redeeming qualities. (Yup. I’m totally considering making her a future heroine!)

Jess : Is there any differences and/or similarities between Cane from your "Seven Day Fiance" novel and Tyler from your "Accidentally Married on Purpose" novel?

Rachel : The similarities are that they are both musicians, they both come from strong southern families, and they know how to treat a woman. As for differences, I think Tyler’s humor is more self-effacing and fun-loving, whereas Cane is a bit more sarcastic, and where Cane is all tatted-up muscles, Tyler is more tall and lanky. But they both stole my heart while writing. :)

Jess : What sparked the idea for "Accidentally Married on Purpose?"

Rachel : I wrote the synopsis for this book before I’d even written book one, so it was always in the back of my mind. I knew Sherry was the adventurous, put your heart out there, type of girl, and I wanted her to have a story that celebrated that. Also, this series is set in New Orleans, and my goal was always to showcase the unique awesomeness of my hometown. Mardi Gras and the music scene was definitely something I wanted to acknowledge, so what better way to do that than to combine them? Once I had those two elements in mind, the plot pretty much wrote itself, and I was a happy, giggling participant.

Jess : Out of all of the secondary characters within "Accidentally Married on Purpose," do you have one or two favorites so far? If so, who are they and can you tell us why?

Rachel : Definitely Charlie. He’s the number one person who comes up from readers and I’m happy to say that I plan to make him the hero in the first book of the spin-off series! I also really enjoyed writing the publicist, Arianne. Funny thing is, a girl on my street team won the chance to become a walk on character in my next book, and that was Arianne Cruz. While writing the book, I had so much fun with her that I told Arianne she might just become a future heroine, too! She’s pretty excited, as am I :)

Jess : How many books have you written? Which is your favorite and why?

Rachel : I have written three adult romances and four completed YA novels—I’m about halfway finished my fifth. Whichever book I just wrote is always the one I love the most. I’m still attached to the characters, in their worlds, so it probably comes as no shock that my two favorites are the ones releasing this year: "Accidentally Married on Purpose" (Adult) and "The Fine Art of Pretending" (Young Adult). But honestly? I think that is because the main characters, Sherry and Aly, are both the most like me.

In "Accidentally Married on Purpose," I got to live out my celebrity fantasy (uh, I may or may not have written NKOTB fan fic when I was a kid...), and I threw in my love affair with romance novels. I’m not lying when I said I pretty much smiled the entire time I wrote this book. And in "The Fine Art of Pretending," it was the same thing. The premise is based on a conversation I actually had in high school with my guy friends, and while Aly definitely became her own person, she is based a lot on my own experiences. Only I let my goober side fly a little more freely with her than I did in high school, I let her make some huge mistakes that I’d have rather avoided personally, and she can sing beautifully, whereas I can’t carry a tune in a bucket. :)

Jess : Do you have any other projects in the works? If so, can you share a little of your current work with us?

Rachel : Right now, I’m working on the second book in my new YA series that begins with "The Fine Art of Pretending," which releases this September. It involves rodeo this time, and I’m having a lot of fun with it. After that is my New Adult debut and I’m so excited to jump in to this story!! Then it’s back to another adult contemporary romance :)

Jess : Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover? Any specific reason why?

Rachel : I love seeing my paperbacks on the shelf, but to read, I honestly prefer ebooks. When I travel, I can bring so many more with me, and since I do the majority of my reading at night, it is a lot easier to read on my iPad and then crash rather than having to get up and turn off the light. But that is just pure laziness talking lol

Jess : If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?

Rachel : "Mama Brain"

Jess : What cartoon character best represents your personal philosophy?

Rachel : I think I’m a mix of Belle from Beauty and the Beast (books and her love of family) and Winnie the Pooh (silly, loves his friends, and a bit forgetful at times *grin*)

Jess : List 3 books you just recently read and would recommend?

Rachel : Susan Mallery’s "Only His," "Full Measures" by Rebecca Yarros, and "All Lined Up" by Cora Carmack



About the Author :

Rachel Harris writes humorous love stories about sassy girls-next-door and the hot guys that make them swoon. Emotion, vibrant settings, and strong families are a staple in each of her books...and kissing. Lots of kissing.

A Cajun cowgirl now living in Houston, she firmly believes life's problems can be solved with a hot, sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations. She homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches way too much Food Network with her amazing husband.

An admitted Diet Mountain Dew addict, she gets through each day by laughing at herself, hugging her kids, and losing herself in story. She writes young adult, new adult, and adult romances, and LOVES talking with readers!

"Accidentally Married on Purpose" [Love & Games Series, Book 3] by Rachel Harris

Author's Book Description : One ring plus one wild night equals one crazy love

Sherry Robicheaux loves men. She loves love. And she loves an adventure. So when she meets a mysterious man while working backstage at a country music concert in Vegas, she’s all about what’s happened in Vegas staying there.

Country music superstar Tyler Blue just wants a weekend of anonymity...though there’s something about the spunky waitress with the streaks of purple hair that tempts him like no other. Until the next morning, when they both wake up with fuzzy memories…and rings on their fingers.

Convincing Sherry to maintain the ruse for his public image isn’t the hardest part—it’s reminding himself that their time spent playing husband and wife in her small town of Magnolia Springs can’t last. Tyler’s first love will always be music—and the road is no place for a sweet downhome girl.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Infatuation is the name of the game. Since I am infatuated with this novel, while in it you read about how much Tyler and Sherry are infatuated with each other. They like each other so much that they "help each other" during their month together, in doing so they gain mutual respect for each other and an unyielding friendship. Yet, once their month is over everything is thrown into question, will they follow their desires or stick with their original plans?

I appreciated that this novel has a heroine who yearns for her own HEA. So much so, in fact, that she asks and is willing to have Tyler play it up for her during their month so she'll get to enjoy at least one HEA in her lifetime even if it's fake. It was sweet, especially because Tyler isn't the romantic type, yet was still willing to do it for her.

They make a fun sweet pairing that I was happy to read about. In addition, it was nice that even though this novel is a part of a series, it still is stand-alone enough that you don't feel left out or slowed down by the back-story. Yet, there was some info that was a bit unnecessary to have included, as it was never fleshed out more. But oh wells.

Overall, I recommend this novel to this who enjoys comedic contemporary romances!

Sherry spit the foaming toothpaste into the basin and rinsed her brush. Her eyes kept straying to the row of notes stuck on the mirror. For some reason, she hadn’t removed that first one, and when she awoke the next morning to its twin, she’d decided to leave them both. Now there were three. None of his short messages overstepped any boundaries; they were simple but flirtatious. And adorable as hell. ~ within Chapter 11

Book Excerpt :

Waking up face-first on the bathroom floor may not be cause for alarm for everyone, but for Sherry, it ranked right up there. Especially since she knew the second her eyes cracked open that it wasn’t her bathroom.
Fuzzy-edged memories pranced around her brain, just out of reach, as she hooked a hand on the toilet seat and pushed to a sitting position.
The world tilted.
As her stomach heaved, she dove for the porcelain throne, but nothing came up. Nothing other than slightly sharper memories. Ones that told of dancing, magical fountains, way too much alcohol, and some very, very sexy time between the sheets. The images pulsed like an old movie, blanking out too much for her liking, but a flush heated her skin at what she could recall.
Hot damn. She’d been right. A night with a roadie like Tyler would definitely keep her fantasies occupied for years to come. Shame she couldn’t remember more.
Resting her head on the cool surface, she surveyed the fancy digs with half-lidded eyes. It was a hell of a room, particularly on a roadie’s budget. Further proof that either Tyler was in tight with his boss, or Blue wasn’t nearly the egotist she’d pegged him to be. Too bad she hadn’t had a chance to meet him the other night.
“Tyler?” she called out again, wincing at the roughness of her voice. She sounded like an old lady who smoked a bazillion packs a day. Lovely. Grabbing hold of either side of the toilet, she wobbled first to her knees, and then her feet. The mirror was just a few feet away. Time to inspect the damage.
Eyes half closed, she fumbled forward and latched onto the counter to steady herself. Hangovers really didn’t suit her. She turned on the faucet, and as she waited for the plastic cup to fill with water, Sherry raised her eyes to her reflection.
“What the freaking hell?!?”
She was wearing a wedding veil.
A wedding veil was on her head. It was white. It had lace. And it was on her freaking head.
She didn’t have a single stitch of clothing on her body otherwise, but she did have that. “Hubba, hubba, wubba...what?”
She blinked hard, repeatedly, thinking her reflection would change. It didn’t. Cold water ran over her hand, and it didn’t wake her from the bizarre dream. The door behind her started to creak open, and Sherry jumped, snatching a towel off the floor.
When she saw a huge honking diamond on her finger, she ditched the towel and screamed instead.

Blog Tour - Feasted On: The Billionaire's Christmas Baby by Victoria James | Interview & Review

Today & for most of tomorrow I'm turning my blog over to Victoria James, who I interviewed about her debut novel "The Billionaire's Christmas Baby!!"



My Q&A with Victoria James :

Jess : What books did you enjoy reading while growing up?

Victoria : My favorites were-Little House on the Prairie, then Nancy Drew, and then as a teenager I fell in love with historical romance; Judith McNaught being my all-time favorite author.

Jess : What do you do when you are not writing?

Victoria : Mostly family stuff. We have small children and it seems like there’s always something going on! But when I’m not doing ‘kid-stuff’ I’m putting my interior design background to use-I’m always rearranging furniture and pictures in our house. I still do freelance work as well. I love seasonal decorating. Basically, I drive my husband nuts, because he hates change...and thing are always changing!

Jess : Which of your characters would you most & least like to invite to dinner, from which book and why?

Victoria : Well, since it’s Christmas, I wouldn’t mind heading up to that remote cabin in “TBCB” and having Christmas with Jackson, Hannah, baby Emily and the Sampson’s! I’m sure our kids would get along fine, while we grownups shared a glass or two of Jackson’s favorite scotch... :)

Jess : Please describe "The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby" in 75 words or less.

Victoria : Jackson Pierce had a perfect childhood-until a death changed everything. The tragedy shattered his family. He grew to hate the holidays, and everything that reminded him of the people he had lost. Hannah Woods grew up with nothing. Yet, it’s Hannah who teaches him the importance of family ties, the power of forgiveness. Somehow, they must overcome their pasts and find a way to be the family that both of them secretly desire...

Jess : Which usually comes first for you, the character(s) story or the idea for the novel?

Victoria : A little bit of both. Sometimes it’s a place, a person, or a scene. The book I’m writing now was inspired by a picture of a French castle I came across in a magazine. I started wondering about what kind of person would own a place like that-and what kind of person would absolutely not own a place a like that. So now I’m writing about two very different people, stranded together in the French Alps, in a breathtaking castle!

Jess : What sparked the idea for "The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby?"

Victoria : A few years ago, surrounded by my extended family, I started wondering about how much of whom I was today, was shaped by the people around me. I had always known the love of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, cousins. But what if I hadn’t? How would that have changed me? And that thought triggered the characters in "THE BILLIONAIRE’S CHRISTMAS BABY." How would different people react to the holidays if they didn’t have a family? If they had no one? Would they build walls around themselves? Or would they be in a perpetual search for a soul-mate, for love? The hero and heroine that took shape in my mind became larger than life. Their pain, their need for acceptance and unconditional love tugged at my heartstrings until I was forced to find a way to create a happily-ever-after for the three of them! And of course, it would have to take place during the holidays!

Jess : What is the most romantic thing one of your characters, from "The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby," said or did?

Victoria : I think when Jackson secretly plans the romantic wedding for Hannah at the chapel.

It was completely unexpected and showed how much Hannah came to mean to him. The dress, the flowers, the connection to his past. He’s a keeper!!

Jess : What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

Victoria : I loved writing the opening, when Hannah first intrudes on Jackson and then he feels forced to go outside in the storm and convince her to stay at the cabin. It was fun to put them in a situation where they were completely at odds with each other, and neither of them had any idea where this meeting would take them.

Jess : In regards to "The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby," if you could write it all over again, would you change anything about it?

Victoria : I think I would have loved to make it longer. I loved Hannah and Jackson and would have liked more time with them. It would have been nice to have spent longer with them after they were married, and with Emily.

Jess : If "The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby" were to be made into a film, who do you see playing the main characters and why?

Victoria : Christian Bale would play Jackson Pierce. I think because he has the brooding looks and the killer smile that I identify with Jackson. Anne Hathaway would be Hannah because she has vulnerability yet a very strong aura to her as well.


Jess : How many books have you written? Which is your favorite and why?

Victoria : Well, I’ve sold three books, but I’d say I’ve written five complete manuscripts I think....favorite-that’s hard! I think whichever one I’m working on becomes my favorite :)

Jess : Do you have any other projects in the works? If so, can you share a little of your current work with us?

Victoria : Sure! Right now I’m revising my next book-it’s the first book in a trilogy of brothers. It’s set in a small town and follows each of the brothers as they fall in love, find themselves, and reveal some of the deep/dark family secrets that have impacted their lives.

Jess : Do you have a favorite aspect of winter or tradition in your family during Christmas that you can tell us about?

Victoria : Growing up in a North-American-Italian family, the holidays were always filled with an abundance of family, food, and drama. Cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, would gather. The crowd was loud and the toasts with homemade wine were plenty.

This year, I’m hosting Christmas Eve dinner for approximately fifteen of our nearest and dearest. I have hosted Christmas Eve before, but I haven’t done the full-blown deal. This year, I’m going to cook up a big old, traditional Italian Christmas Eve dinner. All seven fish dishes. I can do it...I hope! The day after I told my husband my plan? He bought a fire extinguisher.

Jess : Did you get all of your Christmas shopping done early this year or are you a last minute shopper?

Victoria : I usually try and have all my shopping done early. This year was the exception. I ended up so busy with this book release, plus the editing for my next book. I’ve fallen behind, so I think I’m going to get the rest of the shopping done online!

Jess : If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?

Victoria : "Victoria James: A Work in Progress"

Jess : List 3 books you just recently read and would recommend?

Victoria : "Kidnapped by the Greek Billionaire" by Rachel Lyndhurst
"My Kind of Christmas" by Robyn Carr
"Miracles" by Judith McNaught (OK, so I read this before, but I’m a Christmas junkie!)

"The Billionaire's Christmas Baby" by Victoria James

My Book Summary : Hannah is a social worker on a mission. Her mission being, getting Emily (a baby girl who was abandoned to the foster care system after her mother committed suicide) into a safe and loving home, even if that means tracking down Emily's uncle, Jackson, a man who changed his name as a way to disassociate himself to his family, is all she has left. Therefore, she tracks him down in his remote cabin in hopes to win him over and have him adopt Emily.

However, during the process of getting to the cabin a snowstorm hits leaving Hannah and Emily left to stay with Jackson. They find that they have more in common than either of them expects. Will she be able to get Jackson to agree to adopt Emily before the storm passes or will Hannah's hopes for Emily all turn up empty?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars. Two people find the one person who might understand them while in the middle of a blizzard and under extreme circumstances.

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Hannah and Jackson. Their back-stories, their connection, and their personalities were fun, sweet, and entertaining to read about. In addition, I loved how protective Jackson was of Hannah and Emily once he got to know them, as well as, how Hannah decided to make sure that Emily was provided for no matter the cost to her career--it was all very sweet.

I recommend this novel to anyone who likes contemporary romances!!

Book Teaser(s) :
“Did you hear a word of what I said?” she asked in a voice that made him think she could have been an excellent schoolteacher.
“I heard everything,” he said lying.
“Then what did I just say?” He made the mistake of glancing down at her breasts, which were straining against her shirt. He couldn’t help but think how nicely they’d fill his hands and then some...
“Jackson Pierce.” He couldn’t help it. He ducked his head and laughed, rubbing the back of his neck.
“Hannah,” he said into her sparkling eyes, unable to stop the grin that seemed to appear on his face whenever he was around her. “I’m sorry, but you’ve got to cut me some slack. You are a beautiful woman.”
She took a step closer and poked him in the chest and he resisted the urge to laugh. Something else hit him while he stared at her fiery eyes. When he first met her there was no way she would have poked him, but she trusted him now. She acted like her true, spunky, assertive self, and that made him feel damn good.
“Please save your lines for someone who’ll actually fall for them,” she said dryly.
He nodded. “Fine. Why don’t you ask me what you’re really dying to know?”
“And what would that be?” ~ within Chapter 6

Idolizing In: Risky Business Series, Book 2

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 206; Kindle Edition - File Size: 1136 KB | Expected Release Date: November 16, 2015 | Publisher: Entangled Publishing : Brazen | Obtained: NetGalley

"Once Upon a Power Play" [Risky Business Series, Book 2] by Jennifer Bonds (aka J. J. Bonds)

Author's Book Description :

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

He'll do whatever it takes to get her against the boards…

Sidelined by a potentially career-ending injury, the only thing hockey player Ryan Douglas should be thinking about is recovery. But after sharing a near death experience and a night of passion with a spunky brunette, the only thing on his mind is five and a half feet of sexy sarcasm. And he'll do whatever it takes to get her back in his bed--even if it means playing dirty.

Chloe Jacobs is done with fairytales. And men. She's kissed her share of frogs and what's it gotten her? Dumped by text--again. Determined to eighty-six illusions of romance and prove she's more than just a good-time girl, the last thing she needs is a pushy, arrogant hockey player testing her resolve. Especially one who's sinfully good with his hands and thinks date-by-blackmail is a perfectly acceptable social convention.

Ryan wants to play games? Fine by her, but this is one faceoff he's going to lose.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! On the night that Chloe decides on giving up on dating and men, she meets Ryan (a pro-hockey player) at a grocery store and gets into a fight with him over a lime. What starts as arrogance on both their parts leads to protection when they get into an unexpected situation, than they find themselves fueled by more lust for one another then they ever expected. Yet as their lives unintentionally become thrown together, they get into a relationship where they’ll have to decide if they are willing to overcome their preconceived notions and fall for one another for good, or if they’ll have their past relationship hurts dictate what their future will hold.

I know the words I’m about to use do not really sound right together BUT they describe this novel to a T … as it was Erotically Adorable! *hehee* Basically I LOVED how cute, playful, and funny Chloe and Ryan were together while having most of their scenes to be so steamy it keeps you wanting more! Plus, though it’s the second novel in its series it is standalone too while giving you major updates about the other series’ characters. I also enjoyed reading about Ryan’s teammates and I’d love to read more about them too!

Nevertheless, Ryan and Chloe MADE me sit down and notice them. With Chloe’s flare and Ryan’s All-American Boy sweetness, I couldn’t stop being emotionally invested in this novel, laughing one moment and getting teary eyed during the deep scenes. Add in a little holiday “magic” and this novel has everything a romance reader lover could want!

I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those wanting to read a HOT hockey romance!!
