Things are heating up under this blue collar…
Gisele Hornsby can’t believe her good fortune when she’s invited to attend the royal wedding of Prince Luca of Monaforte with her brother Parker. And she’s elated when she finds herself cozying up to Luca’s charming and very hot royal cousin, Tomasso Romeo. Until she learns he’s a cowardly commitment-phobe, and she decides she wants nothing more to do with a man who shuns simple friendship with another woman for fear of what might happen that could tie him down.
Tomasso Romeo’s in need of a change. Tired of following the dreams of his father toiling in the family wine business in Tuscany, he realizes he’s happiest when working with his hands, and heads off for New York to apprentice with a famed woodworker who helped to build his family’s lavish corporate headquarters, a stunning tribute to craftsmanship and now a popular tourist destination.
When Parker takes a sabbatical in Italy to be with Tomasso’s sister, he persuades Tomasso to move into the Manhattan brownstone in his place to keep watch over his beloved little sister. But Gisele is none too pleased with her brother’s unwelcome meddling, and decides her new roommate has got to go. Before she remembers how much she’d like nothing more than to have him stay.
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.
