I had a ball this summer, not only discovering an author new to me, but also
finding an author who truly understood her characters, added the perfect amount of
humor, and also had the best line ever in a book. I'm talking about Stephanie
PANTIES - If you've never been in Holly's shoes you can't imagine what she's
going through nor can you see her growth. Her final retaliation to Logan was
PERFECT!!! The character of Holly was so well written. I felt her internal angst
every step of the way. I loved her snarky come-backs to Logan, time and time again.
Logan was a piece of work...oh yeah, they do exist! I loved watching him come
unglued as he fell for her. Best line ever in a book: "Suck it up, wench. He's
taken...by a Barbie dolls worst nightmare, she thought with satisfaction." That
says it all!!!!
SPOT - One heck of roller coaster ride. If life were perfect we'd all look like
Barbie and be Stepford Wives. I loved the characters of Amanda and Chase from BIG GIRL
PANTIES and couldn't wait to read about the situation hinted at. It was
tastefully done, playful, and even a bit eye-opening. Amanda was fun to watch, to
feel, to see her evolves as the story progressed. She tried so hard to be the
perfect daughter that she forgot to be true to herself. Chase, whew...every woman's
dream, every mother's nightmare...sexy, fun, hot, tempting....and all he wanted was
Amanda. Gotta love a man who knows what he wants and is willing to go after it.
But, better yet, Amanda grew up and realized regardless of "expectations" she too
knew what she wanted and was smarter than Chase, and knew how to get him back!
The other author to capture my heart is Stephanie
Rowe. I'm a HUGE fan of her Order of the Blade series. If you like
fantasy, they're a must read. But it's her new Cowboy Series (Wyoming Rebels) that
is holding me hostage and she continues to write the saga of the Stockton boys.
Chase and Mira have a lovely romance, one to melt even the hardest of hearts.
Books in the Wyoming Rebels series:
A Real Cowboy
Never Says No (June 30, 2015)
A Real Cowboy
Knows How to Kiss (July 28, 2015)
A Real Cowboy

What attracts me to these books and the kind of books I write is that they‚Äôre about
real people, multi-dimensional, real problems, and real solutions, it‚Äôs not just a
romance. The humor comes in the exact same way it does in real life, when you least
expect it, and always with hysterical results.
While some say truth is stranger than fiction, Deb Julienne‚Äôs experience
runs more along the lines of a slap-stick comedy. When life tosses you lemons the
only thing to do is to turn it into Limoncello.
Her life, like her comedies, has been one big fat romantic comedy‚Ä¶or errors. It‚Äôs
not a matter of ‚Äúif‚ÄĚ it can go wrong, but how bad when it does happen, and make no
mistake‚Ä¶it will. Survival with a sense of humor is the goal.
Joking aside, Deb‚Äôs dream of being published came true with the release of her
first book, Sex, Lies, and Beauty Aids which was released March 2014. Since then
she‚Äôs added to more to her collection of tales. Sex, Secrets, & Happily Ever
Afters, and A Splash of Romance in the Crashing into Love Anthology.
As a long time member of both Romance Writers of America (RWA) and her local RWA
Chapter, the Sacramento Valley Roses, she fills the hours she‚Äôs not writing
romantic comedy and romantic suspense with her day job at a Silicon Valley
Corporation, playing in the kitchen concocting her award-winning jams, jellies,
preserves, and sauces (with alcohol of course).
Born and raised in San Jose, California, she now resides in the Tahoe National
Forest Basin, her own little bit of heaven on Earth, with her husband of 34 years,

Angel Talbot is anything but pure‚ÄĒin fact some might even consider her a bit
wicked. How else would you describe the manager of an ‚Äėadults only‚Äô store that
specializes in helping ladies find that special O. But Angel could use a hand
herself. Or two. That is until she stumbles into sexy businessman Travis
When the Wellington Family had a problem, they sent Travis to fix it. Being the CEO
of his family‚Äôs multi-million dollar enterprise means Travis is used to getting his
hands dirty. But the pressure of looking out for the company, along with his
family‚Äôs well-being was beginning to take its toll . . . until he found his Angel‚Ä¶

It's funny that you should mention Stephanie Evanovich. I haven't had a chance to read her books yet, since they're on my TBR list. I don't know if you've read any books by Janet Evanovich yet, namely her series starting with book One through Twenty One, which should be hitting the shelves any time now. Her humor is quite good in her books, and you'll be caught up in the romance as well. The story line is so good, you can read one in a day, sometimes a bit longer. Congratulations on your latest book!! It sounds like you have another winner, and I'll be putting your book on my TBR list, too!! It should make for some great reading when I need to shake up my list a little bit. Love the cover, too!!
