Sometimes you'd rather be caught with your pants down than your skirt up…
Zoey Richards needs to get far away from her past. Following a broken engagement and an earful of I-told-you-so's from her controlling parents, she decides to flee the West Coast for the hinterlands, finding herself alone and licking her wounds in the wide open spaces of Bristol, Montana, happily away from anyone who knows her or anything about her life.
Tanner Eliasson loves that no one knows who he really is. More like who he was. As the son of a famous film director and his attention-seeking starlet wife, every moment of his childhood was recorded by the paparazzi for posterity. And suffice it to say nothing about your childhood should be in the public spotlight so much. So when the daughter of a family friend punches ten-year old Tanner at a film premier and he runs to his mother for solace, the media had a field day mocking the poor boy. From then on, Tanner counted the minute till he could escape his childhood and carve a normal life for himself in the mountains of Montana, where no one would ever know that he once was known the world-over as the Weeping Wimp. That is until the girl with the mean left hook shows up in his one-horse town, and threatens to make his life a living hell.
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.
