Georgeanne Hartfield, author of the explosive, bestselling nonfiction book, Faking It, wrote her book about faking sexual pleasure as a means of coming to terms with her own failed marriage. She never counted on having the book top the bestseller lists, nor did she count on meeting a man like Zane Bryant, who makes her feel like a woman for the first time in her life. But if Zane ever discovers she is the person behind the pen name Fritzi Field, how can he possibly believe that her response to him is the real thing?
Sutherland’s Pride will be released March 4, 2013, by Crimson Contemporary Romance.
Pride Donovan returns to her Gulf Coast hometown of Anahuac, Texas, for her father’s funeral. When summoned to a Houston lawyer’s office to discuss her father’s estate, she discovers the lawyer is none other than Flynn Sutherland, her former lover and the father of her two-year-old son, Johnny. Fortunately, she had expected trouble and took her cousin and her cousin’s three small children, along with her own little boy, to the meeting. She even bets her cousin that Flynn will think all the children belong to her cousin.
Three years ago when Pride became pregnant, Flynn firmly believed she had betrayed him because he believes he is sterile. As a rich man’s son, Flynn cynically figured he was the better marriage prospect than whoever had made Pride pregnant. Since Pride’s father told everyone she had a miscarriage after she left town, Flynn never realizes that one of the four children in his office with Pride and her cousin Gloria belongs to Pride. Thanks to his firm belief that he cannot father a child, and that Pride miscarried if she ever was pregnant in the first place, he ignores all the hints that the little boy, Johnny, is Pride’s son–and his.
What will Flynn do when he learns the truth? Because Pride intends to tell him, but she’s hoping he will guess the truth on his own.
My Crimson Contemporary romance, Old Christmas, is due out on November 19, 2012, wherever e-books are sold.
I’m a Christmas fanatic. So “Old Christmas” is perfect for me, the book I’d want to read on Christmas Eve. It’s sweet, romantic and introduces the reader to some interesting Christmas traditions even Christmas freaks like me didn’t know.
The story starts with Casey Gray returning to her Texas hometown around the holidays because the grandmother who raised her is in the hospital. Casey left town for cooking school and a job in New York after being dumped by Kalin McBryde who spurned her advances. She afraid it’s because he thought she was like her mother who went off to Hollywood, had a romance (and a baby) with a famous movie star and died young.
Kalin is now an attorney who wants to be a writer—almost as much as he really wants to sort things out with Casey. He’s just published his first book and now he has his chance to get it right with her.
Casey’s grandmother believes in “Old Christmas” traditions and the rekindling of the romance between Casey and Kalin takes place during the Old Christmas observances culminating in a magical Old Christmas Eve when the last of the twelve presents from Kalin to Casey—I’ll let you find out for yourself what it is—is opened.
Altogether, as I said, a sweet treat for the holidays on every level, including a yummy-sounding cheesecake recipe at the end of the book.
