Title: Come and Get Your Love
Author: Tina Donahue
Hosted by: Beautiful Promotions
Their desire wasn’t supposed to be real…
With millions willed to her in an incentive trust, Lissa can get the dough to start her own country music label when she meets one of the no-contest clauses. Namely, reach middle age in twenty years, work in the hated family business for a decade, or marry someone not in the music biz.
Marriage it is, at least for a year to satisfy her greedy brother who wants the inheritance.
Enter Cass, a hot Texas rancher who dampens Lissa’s panties. With a pile of medical bills from his brother’s accident, Cass agrees to wed Lissa. She’s sweet to look at, surprisingly pleasant for an Atlanta debutante, and makes his jeans feel tight as hell despite their no-sex contract.
Uh-huh. The devil’s in the details. Longing gazes turn to tender intimacy and wild nights with pretend feeling all too real.
Damn shame it may be too late with her brother gunning for them both.
About The Author:
Tina Donahue is an award-winning, bestselling novelist in erotic romance, and an admitted chocoholic known to down semi-sweet candy bars in grocery checkout lines. She lives with her family in Palm Springs, California, where tires melt in the 120-degree summer heat and an occasional earthquake puts everyone on notice to bolt things down. When she’s not writing her steamy stories, trying to stay cool, or crawling beneath her desk during a trembler, she loves shopping, eating at her favorite Mexican restaurant and meeting other authors. Before she wrote romance, Tina was the editor of an award-winning Midwestern newspaper and worked in Story Direction for a Hollywood production company.
To be honest, I spend so much time reading other people's manuscripts I have joined another blog hop group that requires weekly posts from your WIP to force myself to WRITE!
Why? Because I was using that as an excuse to avoid taking a long, hard look at my own manuscript. Frankly, it has more wrong than right. I won't be throwing it all away, but I will be using a hacksaw rather than a red pen.
It hurts to face this truth, but I finally did. I am shocked at how liberated I feel. Now if I can just get past my other fear...what if I just don't have what it takes any more? Eeeeeeck!

He said. She said. Dialogue. Often tough, but one of the most useful tools for building tension or inferring personality and budding relationship. Give and take between the sexes is especially necessary in the romance genre. Here's the first conversation between my h/h in this YA Urban Fantasy/Romance.
#8Sunday From: Daughter of Ancients
“I’m Hunter Nye,” whispered a deep voice in my ear.
I went perfectly still instead of jumping, even though he startled me.
“Nice to meet you, Ms. Smithers. Do you have a first name?”
Mr. Wow was granted a brief, frosty smile.
His face rested on his fist, an effective mask for tempting lips that barely moved upward and still teased a dimple from his only visible cheek.
Glancing at Mr. Wiltin whose attention I had captured enough for one day, I decided to use caution as well. “ Stefanie,” I said softly.
I blog there the 18th of each month!
