SEASIDE HEARTS~ MELISSA FOSTER…Book tour with Review and # giveaway


The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.


Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

GUEST BLOGGER~ VICTORIA VANE~ SLOW HAND…New release…Contemporary Western Romance with #Giveaway…Mature content, 18 + Please…


Thanks so much for having me back April.  I truly appreciate your enthusiasm and support.

You are so very welcome!!

MBA&M: How hard was it to write Contemporary romance instead of your usual Historical Romance?

One bad apple

VICTORIA: If you have asked me just two years ago I would have sworn that I would never write a contemporary romance. I honestly didn’t think I had the right writing voice for it. It might seem strange but my natural writing “voice” is quite formal. In college my lit professor describes my writing style as “scholarly” which is why I adapted so easily to historical fiction. Moving from historical fiction to historical romance was actually a pretty big transition for me but I was able to adapt given that I stayed in my beloved Georgian era, where everyday speech was very formal.
My greatest fear in taking a two and a half century leap into contemporary romance was that my characters would sound all wrong. As it turns out, my worries were unfounded. Readers who know my work are already aware that my historical romances are character driven and dialogue heavy. This is even truer of my contemporary stories. Although it took a while for me to “find” my story, once my characters came to life, I simply had to move out of the way and let them do the talking.
SLOW HAND is fun and flirty and loaded with innuendo! I loved writing the dialogue between Wade and Nikki. One of my favorite scenes is when she gets a bit tipsy after visiting the funeral home. Here’s a little teaser!

Wade on thongs

SLOW HAND mini- excerpt:
Holy shit. She’d given him a hard-on with a simple question. It wasn’t the wording as much as the way she’d posed it—with a challenge. Her body language said gimme what you got, cowboy, loud and clear. He suspected the tequila had a lot to do with it, but the hungry look in her eyes made him want to give her hard, fast, and furious right there on the table.
It was definitely time to go.
“Are you ready, Nicole?” he asked, already grabbing his hat.
“What’s your hurry, cowboy?” She gave him a sloppy grin that pricked his conscience.
He hadn’t set out to get her drunk. That was her doing, but he certainly hadn’t discouraged it either. “C’mon.” He took her by the arm and gently coaxed her from her seat. “You’ve had enough for one night. I’m taking you home.”
“Home?” She cocked her head at him. “Home where? If you think you’re gonna sweet talk my panties off, you got another think coming, Wade. I already told you how I feel and you haven’t changed my mind. No indeed-y. I got your number.”
“Do you now?” He threw some money on the table and guided her to the door.
“Yup. Sure do, after seeing how those waitresses were all eyeballing you like a herd of hungry sows waiting at the feeding trough.”
“A herd of sows? That’s not a pretty picture you paint.”
She gazed up at him in earnest. “I was simply making an ob-obzervation, Wade.”
“Sure you were.”
He let her babble on until they got to the truck, where he was struck by an overwhelming impulse to silence her—with his mouth. He managed to restrain the urge until he reached around her for the door and found himself thigh to thigh with Nikki, her breasts pushing against his chest and her arms entwined around his neck. She looked up at him all soft and warm and welcoming.
Damn, but it was just too much!
He pinned her to the door, expecting at least some token resistance after the way she’d been sounding off, but instead, she laced her fingers in his hair, pulled his face down to hers, and then licked his chin! He jerked his head back “What the hell was that?”
She giggled drunkenly. “That dimple of yours is driving me crazy. I’ve been dying to do that since I first saw you.”
“Oh yeah?” He grinned back at her. “You can lick any part of me you like, darlin’, as long as you let me reciprocate in kind.”


Thank you, Victoria, for spending time with us and our readers today!!
