If you can't be with the one you love, hug the one you're with…
Elise Jackson is going through the motions of yet another wacky bachelorette party scavenger hunt, counting the minutes till martini time, when she accidentally ends up in a close encounter with the man who practically tore her heart out of her chest years earlier. Now she just needs to get through the weekend unscathed and she can pretend she never touched the man. Until she finds out he's a groomsman in her good friend's wedding, and she's been paired up with him the whole. damned. weekend.
Will Montgomery thought he could kill two birds with one stone—back in town for a wedding, he and some friends decided to set up a hugging station to raise money for a buddy's son who needs expensive surgery. Only who does he get stuck hugging but the woman he once thought he was going to marry, who now would rather see him under the wheels of a bus than wrapping his arms around her? But once he feels his body pressed to hers, he realizes that the one that got away was now within arm's reach and he's not prepared to let her go yet again.

About the Author
Thank you so much for reading my books! I hope you'll find some that keep you from doing the dishes, or vacuuming, or maybe even cause you to stay up later than you'd planned to (although I covet my sleep, so I'd feel guilty if I was to blame for that too often!).
I'm the author of SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER, winner of Romantic Times/Dorchester Publishing's American Title III contest, bestseller SLIM TO NONE, the IT'S REIGNING MEN contemporary romance series, including SOMETHING IN THE HEIR, HEIR TODAY GONE TOMORROW, BAD TO THE THRONE, LOVE IS IN THE HEIR and SHAME OF THRONES (book 6, THRONE FOR A LOOP, comes out in March); ANYWHERE BUT HERE; WHERE THE HEART IS; the memoir BITE ME: A PARROT, A FAMILY AND A WHOLE LOT OF FLESH WOUNDS; the essay collection NAKED MAN ON MAIN STREET; two contemporary romances as Erin Delany: ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE, & COMPROMISING POSITIONS. I have a funny dog story in I'M NOT THE BIGGEST BITCH IN THIS RELATIONSHIP. And I've got many more novels in the works!
I've had pieces appear in Ladies Home Journal, the Washington Post, Marie-Claire.com, and on NPR's Day to Day. I honed my fiction writing skills while working as a publicist for a US Senator. Other jobs I've held have included: an orthodontic assistant (learning quite readily that I wasn't cut out for a career in polyester), a waitress (probably my highest-paying job), a TV reporter, a pre-obituary writer, and a photographer (once being Prince Charles' photographer in Washington!). Oh I'm also the volunteer coordinator for the Virginia Film Festival, which is a great one!
I live in Virginia with my husband and a small menagerie; we have three grown children, one of whom lives in Australia and I dream of visiting her there. I love all things Italian, regularly fantasize about traveling to exotic locales, and feel a little bit guilty for rarely attempting to clean the house.
