Guest Blogger: Kat Martin chats about A Party to Remember

Image
Note: be sure to check out the contest below.  A PARTY TO REMEMBER by Kat Martin     I love New Year’s Eve. When I was younger, I was pretty much a wallflower who sat home year after year. I would watch the glass ball going down in Times Square and wish I was there. As an adult I’ve tried to make up for all those lost New Year’s Eves and rarely miss going out on the town.      I love to dress up in black sequins and high heels, and am fortunate that my husband is a knockout in a tuxedo. One of my favorite New Year’s parties was in Beverly Hills. I was invited to a function that was the height of elegance and even had celebrities in attendance. I remember seeing Hugh O’Brien, who used to be Wyatt Earp on TV, a really gorgeous guy back then, and Faye Dunaway, who was class personified.      For me New Year’s Eve is champagne and romance, and being a romance writer, why wouldn’t I adore it?      This year, besides going out on the town, I’ll be celebrating the re-release of

He has a totally different way to help Virginia with her grief. Virginia Waverly is up to any challenge when it comes to horses.

He's having dreams of his wife, Claire, and hopes she is safe in the future with their child (re: DRAGONFLY IN AMBER). But his main reason for wanting to remain at Helwater is that his young son is growing up there, the son he cannot claim since he was born to the daughter of the farm's owner after she seduced Jamie nearly three years ago. Then there is the arrival of an old friend, Tobias Quinn, who was active in the Rising. Quinn wants to get Jamie to help him find a cup that will bring the Irish together to overthrow the English.

But the one person who seems bent on stopping her from getting into trouble is hot, hunky (and straight-laced) Sheriff Sawyer Thompson. Chloe might just brush off Sawyer's stern warnings, but something about him causes her insides to curl. It's not likely they have anything in common, and besides, he only disapproves of her. Yet, the sizzling chemistry between them is enough to raise temperatures to near scorching levels. Sawyer didn't always abide by the law, but a tragic accident in his teens caused him to turn his life around—right into a career that led into law enforcement. H

1.Tell us about your newest release. ONCE A MISTRESS is an homage to the swashbuckler movies of Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power. It's full of derring-do and pirates and swordfights, and it's just a little over the top like those old favorites from Hollywood's golden age. I used to watch those movies on Sundays growing up. Here's the quick summary: In 1680 Jamaica, Diana Covington is the daughter of a wealthy shipping magnate. Even though she knows someday she'll be promised in marriage to some noble gentleman, she dreams of the adventures to be found with the pirates she hears so much about. But then she is jolted to the reality of what a pirate really is when she is abducted by the villainous Marcus to be held as part of a blackmail scheme against her father. She is rescued from Marcus's clutches by El Moreno, the Black Spaniard, a pirate who'd featured in some of her fantasies. But El Moreno has no intention of letting her go, and she wonders if she ha

1. Tell us about your newest release. First off, I’d like to say thank you for hosting me this week! My most recent novel in print, Dreamscape, released over the summer. The story is unusual in that it stretches across genres. First of all it’s classified as a contemporary erotic romance. It’s a ghost story, and in a way, a time travel too, but it’s also a mystery and suspense. As if that’s not enough to chew on, I’ve loaded it with clues hinting at a story running behind the scenes. I was a big fan of Agatha Christie who often put details hinting at the outcome right out in the open for readers to trip over. I had fun writing it and my hope is my readers will enjoy the Easter egg hunt I’ve set before them. I’ve even left you all a clue to the truth right here too! :) 2. Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene in the story? Without giving too much away, I’ll start with the blurb so visitors here will have some background to go by. Blurb: Unable to deny his own

INFERNO'S KISS by Monica Burns Out now! Blurb: The laws of desire… Dante Condellaire, heir apparent to the Sicari Lords, knows that being a true leader means sacrifice.
