“Gennie-bear, you want another bite of this
cupcake? You can use my fork,” Brent said and held it out to me. With his saliva on it.

I had no idea where his mouth had been lately. Gross.

I shook my head. “Uh, no thanks. I’m good.
I’ll get another fork.” I said and shoved my chair back so hard it made a loud, screeching noise across the floor. I smiled an apology before I escaped and wondered how I could prolong the simple task of retrieving a fork.

I took my time at the counter talking to Melanie about the weather, about cupcake batter and about where she got her plastic forks, anything to delay my return to the table. When Lexie sent me the twin death glare, I sighed and went back to the table.

Brent had eaten half of my Lemon Drop cupcake.

“That one was really good,” he said and sent me a sparkly smile.

I almost stabbed him with my fork, but the bell above the door jingled and I looked up to see Matt standing there.

The light flooding through behind him tipped his dark hair in gold. I nearly sighed. Was it weird I thought I heard sirens and angels singing? There he was, my knight in shining armor, saving me again.

I threw the fork down and bounded from my chair. It tipped backward, but the sound of it crashing to the floor was muffled as everything else faded to the background. I rushed into his arms and he caught me to his chest with a deep laugh and it reverberated through my body like a bass drum. His arms circled around me, wrapping me in his warmth and I breathed in the scent of him, my face feeling like it might crack with my smile.

His cheek rested against my temple and I sighed, content. Would my heart ever stop racing when my eyes caught sight of
him? I hoped not. It was exhilarating and terrifying at the same time.

“You came,” I whispered, not willing to let
him go.

“Did you doubt I would?” He dropped a kiss to the tip of my nose, sending shivers down my spine, the butterflies knocking like mad into each other inside my stomach.

~~ Blurb ~~

Imogen Gorecki has a problem—her twin sister just got engaged, and guess who’s the best man? That’s right, her scum-of-an-ex-boyfriend whom she caught cheating with a bottle-blonde, with fake breasts and a stripper’s flexibility. There’s a disturbing possibility her eyes will never recover.

Gen needs a date for the engagement party, but finding Mr. Perfect in a time crunch is proving impossible. Just when she’s about to give up, she face-plants into the crotch of the sexiest guy she’s ever met.

Matt Sesnick is everything Gen wants in a man —except he’s not interested in a relationship. Can she convince Matt to take another shot at love, or will Gen’s pregnant, hormonal older sister, her bridezilla twin, and all of her past Mr. Wrongs get in the way of their happily-ever-after?

“You really should
change that light bulb,” Matt said, glancing around us.
“I know.” I pushed
aside my wallet to dig to the bottom of my oversized purse. “I kind of take for
granted that this is supposed to be a safe neighborhood.”
“Until an alien
abducts you off your poorly lit porch.”
“Very funny.” I
glanced up from my purse with a smile. “But really, it’s late. You could have
been home by now.”
“Gen, I’m glad to
walk you to your door. I would have worried about you if I hadn’t.”
I considered him
as we stood there on my porch, the light flickering above us. I didn’t want him
to leave, but I didn’t know how to ask him to stay. Maybe I could ask him in for
a drink, though I’d already had enough. 
But I have those cupcakes…
Yeah. I could
offer him cupcakes. They weren’t his favorite, chocolate with sprinkles, but yellow cake with
milk chocolate frosting had to be a close second, right? Hadn’t he said a cupcake will
fix everything?
“I’m really glad
we went out tonight.”
His voice made me
jump and I dropped the keys. We both bent to pick them up at the same time and
bumped foreheads.
“Sorry,” he said.
“It’s okay, I’m
fine.” I clasped my forehead and laughed. Probably, I sounded hysterical. Like
a rabid hyena. I couldn’t even look him in the eye when I took the keys from him.
“Thanks for inviting me. I had a lot of fun tonight.”
“Me too,” he said.
I put the key into
the lock, turning it slowly as I struggled with what to do about him and my out
of control libido. Unlocking my door hadn’t given me enough time to figure
things out, though, so I tried to prolong sliding the patio door open. That
didn’t take long either, and I hesitated in the doorway, still unsure. I opened
my mouth to ask him in, but nothing came out. So I stepped backward through the
doorway, my gaze glued to his. After a moment, he followed me inside, part of
his face lost in shadows.
Time stood still.
My tongue darted out to lick my lips, and I lifted up onto my toes as he
lowered his head to meet me halfway. The smell of his cologne surrounded me and
my eyes drifted shut. He grasped me loosely around my back, pulling me close,
sending shivers coursing through my body. His breath caressed my skin, his lips
just a whisper away from mine, and my lips parted.

#Free: Lighthearted contemporary romance from Mac Crowne! A Song for Sophie

Given how much I loved The Billionaire’s Con, this new romance from Mac Crowne is at the top of my To Be Read pile! Mac, welcome. Can you tell us about A Song for Sophie?

Mac Crowne: Hiya, Nia. Thanks so much for hosting me and my lighthearted contemporary romance, A Song for Sophie, part of the Honky Tonk Hearts series from The Wild Rose Press. I’m thrilled to be included in the list of talented authors contributing to this fun series. Seriously, if you haven’t read any of these awesome honky tonk love stories, you’re missing out!

Might I suggest you begin with my contribution? 😉 Oh, and did I mention it’s free to download 10/15 – 10/19? Yep, FREE! Here’s the blurb and a short excerpt. Enjoy.

Blurb:

Jobless, practically homeless, and tired of being manless, Sophie Taylor jumps at the chance to be Beaumont Walker’s personal assistant. Six weeks on the road with country music’s bad boy–and, more importantly, his all-male crew–is the perfect opportunity to change her life.

Beau Walker doesn’t need any more distractions. Sophie, with her butt-ugly suits and balls-to-the-wall attitude, shouldn’t be one, but she proves to be distracting and more–even, surprisingly, a friend. So when he discovers her plan to snag a man from his worldly wise crew, he’s determined to protect her from herself.

When Sophie realizes Beau is behind her failure to attract even one member of his crew, the last place she expects to find herself is in his bed. But will one night of passion convince her she’s woman enough for him? Or will it destroy their friendship and his budding belief in true love?

And here’s an excerpt:

“Sophie, I’d like you to meet my mother, Savanna Beaumont. Ladies, this is Sophie.”

That’s it? No explanation for her intrusion into their luncheon date. No qualifying her position as an employee. She considered kicking him under the table. Running interference indeed. Hah! As if any of these stunning women would consider her presence at the table any kind of competition for Beau’s attention.

She did her best to ignore the arm he slung over the back of her chair and smiled at his mother. “Miss Beaumont. It’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m a big fan.”

Savanna’s bemused gaze flicked to Beau before her eyes cleared. She returned Sophie’s smile. “It’s always lovely to meet a fan. How do you know my Beau?”

His fingers tugged a gentle warning on her braid, and he spoke before she could answer.

“She’s from Cholla Springs, Savanna. A history teacher at the high school.”

Sophie sent him a sidelong glance. “Actually, I was a teacher in Cholla Springs.” She jumped when his booted foot connected with her ankle. Oh, no he didn’t! She didn’t look his way, simply kicked him back, hard, and was pleased at his muffled grunt. “But,” she continued, “because of recent budget cuts, I’ve recently taken a new position.”

She turned to him then, thinning her lips and narrowing her eyes in a scowl designed to let him know he was going to owe her—and owe her big.

Here’s the link for the free download A Song for Sophie on Amazon and if I could ask you a favor, please feel free to share the link with your friends, because everyone loves free, right?

Also, excuse me for my shameless plug, but as Sophie and Beau met while on tour, I thought it appropriate to set them loose on the world by tour. The A Song for Sophie Blurb Blitz Blog Tour. I’m giving away a title from my back list at every stop plus a grand prize bundle of 15 romance ebooks from some of my favorite authors. Click on the link for details.

Mackenzie Crowne Bio:
I’m a wife, mother and really young grandmother. Together with my high school sweet heart husband, a neurotic Pomeranian and a blind cat, I call Arizona home because the southwest feeds my soul. My love of books, specifically the romance genre, has been a lifelong affair, both as a reader and a writer. A bout with breast cancer sharpened my resolve to see my stories shared with others. Today, I’m a five-year survivor, living the dream. Raised on the concept that a stranger is just one conversation away from being a friend, I love meeting new people.
My friends call me Mac. I hope you will too.
