Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon Blog Tour




Welcome to my tour stop for Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon.  This is an adult romantic comedy and  the tour runs February 24th- March 7th and will consist of reviews, guest posts, interviews and more. You can find the full schedule on the tour page.



Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon


Hollie Porter is the chairwoman of Generation Disillusioned: at twenty-five years old, she’s saddled with a job she hates, a boyfriend who’s all wrong for her, and a vexing inability to say no. She’s already near her breaking point, so when one caller too many kicks the bucket during Hollie’s 911 shift, she cashes in the Sweethearts’ Spa & Stay gift certificate from her dad and heads to Revelation Cove, British Columbia. One caveat: she’s going solo. Any sweethearts will have to be found on site.

Hollie hopes to find her beloved otters in the wilds of the Great White North, but instead she’s providing comic relief for staff and guests alike. Even Concierge Ryan, a former NHL star with bad knees and broken dreams, can’t stop her from stumbling from one (mis)adventure to another. Just when Hollie starts to think that a change of venue doesn’t mean a change in circumstances, the island works its charm and she starts to think she might have found the rejuvenation she so desperately desires. But then an uninvited guest crashes the party, forcing her to step out of the discomfort zone where she dwells and save the day … and maybe even herself in the process.

Interview with Jesus Freak Blog – Eliza Gordon!



How did the idea of writing about a 911 operator come to be?
I spent three months as a 911 dispatcher in a small county in Oregon years ago. It was the scariest three months of my working life—I had a call come in where the victim had been found unconscious on the bathroom floor, blood coming out of his ears and nose, and my dispatch trainer told me that the man was definitely a goner. Blood coming from the ears is no good. I felt so sad that I quit soon after. My personality at that time in my life was too fresh and underdeveloped to handle high-stress calamity. Although Hollie Porter is calmer than I was at her age, the stress of the job is definitely getting to her too.

What inspired you to write this book?
I’ve been working on a rewrite for a darker YA project for the past few years, and I needed something fun and silly and lighthearted that wouldn’t be subject to a grueling editorial process. Plus I really wanted a project that Mr. Gordon and I could work on together. He usually writes screenplays, so he’s solid with structure, which is not one of my stronger suits. Our skill sets are very complementary—two great tastes that taste great together. Plus, who doesn’t like romance and fun? 

Are you a hockey fan?
Oh yes! I used to go to Winterhawks games when I lived in Portland, and Mr. Gordon, Canada born and bred, played hockey as a kid and into his teens (a bad collarbone break ended that). We live in the suburbs outside Vancouver, British Columbia, so we cheer obnoxiously for the Vancouver Canucks, although Mr. Gordon’s lifelong favorite team is the Philadelphia Flyers. (Mr. Gordon is quite the hockey historian. Don’t tell that I bragged about him. He’s shy.)
Hockey really is a huge part of Canadian culture—with the Sochi Olympics underway, our local elementary school pulled the kids into the gymnasium on February 20 so they could watch the third period of the women’s gold medal game, Canada vs. the US. I root for both countries as I’m American but I’ve lived in Canada for twelve years. It was great fun for the kids to see the home team win on Russian ice. Earlier today Canada’s men’s hockey won versus the US, but like I said, it’s an either/or situation for me. Because Ryan Kesler (an American) is my favorite hockey stud, I did feel bad that he had a sad face as he exited the ice, but we just need these guys to stay healthy (no more injuries!) so they can get back to North America and the NHL can get back to business. We miss our Canucks!

Is there anyone that you based the characters on?
I definitely use real people as visual inspiration—for Ryan, the aforementioned Vancouver Canucks player Ryan Kesler was a huge inspiration (a coincidence about the name, though), as was Canadian actor Peter Mooney (Rookie Blue, Camelot), and most recently, British heartthrob Henry Cavill, à la the rough-and-rugged, bearded, oil-rig-saving Clark Kent in Man of Steel. Mmmmm, Mr. Cavill, known as vitamin Henry around these parts, could totally rock a playoff beard. I’d give up a body part to see him play Ryan Fielding.
As for Hollie, I don’t have an individual in mind who embodies her physical characteristics—Hollie is Every Woman, and I prefer to paint my female leads with lighter brushstrokes as I think that helps with relatability between character and reader—but in terms of inspiration for her snark, I pulled from Kristen Wiig’s awesome performance in Bridesmaids. That movie is really quite layered—it’s about a lot more than a group of bridesmaids who eat bad chicken and then crap in the bridal salon’s bathroom sink. (If you haven’t seen it, get thee to a Red Box.)

What was your favorite part of creating this book?
Laughing. We cracked ourselves up brainstorming the most outrageous things we could throw at poor Hollie. Also, we really wanted to showcase how fantastic British Columbia is—though some of the locales are fabricated (Revelation Cove, Brigand Bay), these are all based on actual places along the BC coastline. I can’t believe I get to live in such a gorgeous place. 

Is there anything that you want your readers to get from this book?
An appreciation for otters—and really for all of our endangered sea-dwelling neighbors. I adore otters, and during childhood, I had my heart set on being a marine biologist (until I learned I’d have to go in deep water, and I’m terrified of deep water). There’s a scene in the book where Hollie talks about how, as a kid at the zoo and aquarium, she’d stand before the animals’ enclosures and try to convince them that she loved them more than any of the other people visiting that day. That was me—when Keiko the killer whale was staying at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, I would press my hands and face against the glass and try to communicate that I loved him best of all. I have no idea if he responded because I don’t speak orca.
But seriously, I would love it if readers walked away with an appreciation for the really scary prospect that sea otters, if not protected, could face extinction. California’s southern sea otter population only numbers around 3000 beauties. The northern sea otter, found along Washington, Canada, and Alaska, is a healthier population with numbers between 65,000 and 78,000*, although both populations are considered threatened. While now covered by the Endangered Species Act & Marine Mammal Protection Act, these little sweeties are also at risk from oil spills and poaching. And awareness is always the first step toward action!
(*Info from Friends of the Sea Otter. Find them online and on social media!)

As a writer, what has been the most rewarding thing that has happened?
I LOVE hearing from readers. LOVE IT. It is such an incredible feeling to have someone email or leave a message on Facebook or Twitter with positive feedback. And when people say that they’re laughing or that they related to Hollie? I can’t even describe what a total rush that is. I live to make people giggle.

How did you come up with this title?
Good question, for which I have no good answer. To be ridiculously honest, it just popped into my head as Hollie started to take shape. At first my agent didn’t like the title, but once they read the story, it was clear that Must Love Otters was an apt fit for what happens within the pages. It is a little unusual, I know, and I’ve seen comments online where people were at first unsure of reading a book with “otters” in the title—what the hell is this book even about? Seems we’re doing okay, though. If people are giggling and seeing the connection between Hollie and her otters, then we win.

Do you plan on continuing Hollie and Ryan’s story?
Mr. Gordon and I are talking about this—it would be interesting to see what happens to them after they become a committed couple. Will they stay at Revelation Cove? What kind of work will she do? Will the time spent in Monterey with the otters change her outlook on what she wants to do for the rest of her life? Will Hollie and Ryan tie the knot? Will there be babies? Will Ryan take that future offer to coach a hockey team? So many questions to consider! Whatever happens with them, though, you know that Hollie will bounce and tumble her way through it.

What is the next book you are working on?
The answer to this question always makes people frown at me: I’m superstitious, and so I can’t tell you! I will tell you this—it’s another romantic comedy, this time set exclusively in Portland, Oregon, and our leading lady has an affinity for rubber ducks and Star Wars. Is that enough? Look for its release late spring/early summer.
Thank you very much for the opportunity to visit and chat with you and your readers! We do hope you enjoy your journey through Hollie’s life in Must Love Otters. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr!

RECKLESSLY ROYAL Synopsis:

Catherine has spent her life being the perfect princess. She’s kept her hands clean, her head down, and most importantly—men at arm’s length. After all, most men are after only one thing, and for Cathy there’s a lot more at stake than her bed; she has to worry about the fate of an entire nation. But at the rate she’s going, Cathy is afraid she’ll give the Virgin Queen a run for her money. She is tired of waiting for someone good enough to come along. She has a plan, and it all hinges on seducing the one man who seems utterly unimpressed by all things royal. The one man she is tempted by more than any other . . . 


When David arrives at the royal wedding of his friend, the newly ordained Duchess Samantha Rousseau, he expected to feel uncomfortable and out of his element, but he wasn’t prepared to be targeted by Prince Alex’s gorgeous younger sister. With Cathy’s giant blue eyes, killer figure, and sense of humor, it won’t take long before he gives in. But when he finds out just how innocent the crown princess really is, will he play the part of knight in shining armor or the dashing rogue?

My exact reaction. Seriously though how did I not know about this. I freaking love with book. If you haven't read it; listen to me... GO READ IT NOW!! I cried like a baby through the whole thing. Like big ugly fat snotty tears. It was amazing haha. 

Here is what it is about just in case you are one of the crazy people that don't know.
Book Synopsis:
On a day that started like any other,

Mia had everything: a loving family, a gorgeous, admiring boyfriend, and a bright future full of music and full of choices. In an instant, almost all of that is taken from her. Caught between life and death, between a happy past and an unknowable future, Mia spends one critical day contemplating the only decision she has left. It is the most important decision she'll ever make.

Simultaneously tragic and hopeful, this is a romantic, riveting, and ultimately uplifting story about memory, music, living, dying, loving.

Reluctantly Royal (Suddenly #3)

Expected publication: August 25th 2014 by Avon (first published January 1st 2014)

Maxwell Jameson Trevor, prince of Lilaria, hates his royal role. Despising the limelight, he takes solace in his art studio and steers clear of any drama. But when one of the newly discovered royals passes away, Maxwell's brother Alex asks him to break the news to the old man's granddaughter. Though he hates to be the bearer of doom and gloom, he doesn't want the poor girl to find out from the tabloids. For Maxwell knows all too well how devastating that could be.

Coming from a broken home and modest background, newly ordained Lady Meredith Thysmer has seized her chance to make a better life for herself and her son. She's not afraid to use her best assets to get what she wants. But when the unpretentious yet devastatingly handsome Max delivers his news, her plans for the future come crashing to a halt. In the challenging days ahead, Max's compassion, humor, and steadfast loyalty to Meredith and her son win her over. She quickly finds herself doing something she swore would never happen again: falling in love. And yet Maxwell still refuses to completely drop his guard. Somehow Meredith's got to find a way to seduce this reluctant royal.

WHITE HOT KISS Release Day Launch!!

We are beyond excited to participate in the Release Day Launch for Jennifer L. Armentrout's WHITE HOT KISS! WHITE HOT KISS is a young adult paranormal romance being published by Harlequin Teen TODAY! This is the first full-length novel in The Dark Elements Series and one you'll want to grab as soon as you finish reading this post.



ABOUT WHITE HOT KISS:

One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most.

Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.



EXCERPT:
“I don’t think of Zayne that way!”
She laughed. “What man-parts-loving female in this world doesn’t think of Zayne that way? I can barely keep myself breathing when I see him. All the guys in school have squishy waists. I can tell Zayne doesn’t. He’s the awesome sauce with extra sauce.”
That he was and he so didn’t have a squishy waist, but I tuned Stacey out at that point. I really did need to cram for this test and I also didn’t want my fantasies involving Zayne to occupy my mind right now. Especially after I’d woken up this morning, carefully tucked under the covers. The bed had smelled like him: sandalwood and crisp linen.
“Oh, sweet baby Jesus in a manger,” Stacey murmured.
I clenched my jaw, cupping my hands over my ears.
She jabbed me in the side with her elbow. At this rate I’d be covered in bruises before lunchtime. “Our bio class just got a billion times more interesting. And hotter, lots and lots hotter. Holy mother, I want to have his babies. Not now of course, but definitely later. But I’d like to start practicing soon.”
The cell wall is a thick and rigid layer covering the plasma something, something plant cells…
Stacey stiffened all of a sudden. “Oh my God, he’s coming—”
Composed of fat and sugar—
Something slender and shiny fell from who knew where, landing in the middle of Sam’s notes. Blinking tightly, it took me a couple of seconds to recognize the faded and half peeled
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sticker covering the back of the silver cell phone.
My heart slammed against my ribs. Gripping the edges of the notebook, I slowly lifted my gaze. Unnaturally beautiful golden eyes met mine.
“You forgot this last night.”

THE LOST TYCOON Blog Tour: Excerpt and Giveaway!!



Title: The Lost Tycoon
Series: Baby for the Billionaire #5
Author: Melody Anne
Publication Date: February 24, 2014

Summary: Fighting to survive, Mystic Elton takes one look at the man standing in front of her and knows she needs to make a decision – does she want to live? Discovering that her boyfriend is storing enough drugs to supply a small country, she looks for an escape route. He’s standing in the doorway – standing in the way of her freedom.
Mystic has nothing left – no family, no friends, no one she can rely on. She is all alone and frightened. Managing to get past her ex, she flees, running to the other side of the country, landing in Seattle, she changes her appearance, her name, her life.

After a year, she begins to feel safe. Her ex won’t find her. She’s beginning to pick up the pieces of her once shattered existence and carve out a new world for herself.

That is, until a tall, well-dressed man shows up at her job and tells her they need to talk – and he knows her real name. Fleeing to get away from him, she rushes to the back room and grabs her Taser. When she hits him with it, she thinks she’s home free.

She’s not.

All Mystic has done is really tick off Bryson Winchester, and all he’s trying to do is help her by getting her scum of an ex off the streets.

Mystic has a choice to make. Is this a man she can believe in? Is any man worthy of her precious trust? She’ll find the answers, though they may not be what she expects or wants – her entire world is about to be turned upside down, because not only will she find there are some men out there worth trusting – she will find out the secret of her birth – the reality of who she really is.

Some things should stay in the past – and others… Other things will come back with a vengeance.

Excerpt!

“It took a long time to find you, Ms. Elton.”

        Oh, no. Oh, no. Misty looked up into the steady gray gaze of the giant of a man standing in front of her. No! She was safe. It had been a year — a full year. It was only a few months ago that she had let down her guard, had decided it was safe to live again, had gone back to her natural hair color.
        Jesse had moved on, surely. He wouldn’t have stayed single this long. He had to have a woman to boss around — to beat up on, by now. He would still hate her, still want her dead, but he wouldn’t still be searching for her. There was just no possible way.
        “I…uh…I don’t know who you’re referring to,” she stuttered, and she crept toward the door to the back room. She was working a crappy job at a fast-food joint. It was nondescript, possibly even considered a bit seedy, and they hadn’t blinked when she’d given them her false name, her poorly done fake ID. She sure as heck wouldn’t eat the food there, not with their lax views on hygiene. They hadn’t even made her get a food handlers card. But, the job was working for her for now, allowing her to save up for her next move – though she wasn’t saving much.
        If she could just get through the door, get to her locker, then she’d be able to grab her Taser. She’d started leaving it in her purse just a few months ago. Up until that point, she’d carried it on her, keeping the small, but hopefully effective, device in her pocket, just in reach of her shaking fingers.
        This was what happened when you grew lax. This would be what killed her.
        “Please don’t be afraid. I’m here to help you.”
        “I don’t need help. You have the wrong person,” she said, her voice more steady. He was watching her move toward the door, but he wasn’t taking a menacing step toward her — wasn’t reaching for the gun she knew he had to have on him.
        She was close, so close. Inching a bit closer to the door, she kept her eyes on his hands. Those would tell her his next move. She’d become an expert at reading Jesse through his hands. The second they clenched she had known she was in trouble.
        This man’s hands were sitting idly at his hips, just kind of hanging there. “Can I please sit down with you for a few minutes of your time? I won’t ask you to go anywhere alone with me.” His voice, she was sure, was supposed to convey trust.
        That only made her more suspicious.
        “Sorry. I have to get something from the back room.” She took her chances and darted through the door, not looking back as she made her way to her locker. Thankfully, it was open, since it was only her and one other kid on shift, who she actually trusted. She quickly reached into her purse.
        When her fingers clasped around the small Taser, she felt her fear dwindling. It wasn’t as deadly as a gun, but it would knock a large man down long enough for her to get away.
        “Ms. Elton, please–”
        He’d followed her. And he was grabbing her arm.
        Misty didn’t hesitate. She turned back to face him and pushed the button on her weapon. His eyes widened with shock followed by a shot of pain as thousands of volts of electricity traveled through his skin into his stomach.
        He released her arm, and Misty took a step, planning on getting the hell away — far away from him and this place. It was time to find a new city. She’d stayed too long, far longer than she had originally planned, but her car had died, and she hadn’t saved enough to move again yet. Almost but not quite. The heck with it now, though. She’d take a bus, and live in a shelter for a while.
        She wouldn’t be returned to Jesse, not ever again.
        When the man’s hand snaked out and grabbed her leg, tripping her, Misty gasped. She got ready to use the stun gun again, longer this time.
        “I don’t think so,” he growled between clenched teeth. He smacked the gun from her hand and pinned her beneath him.

PRINCESS EVER AFTER by @RachelHauck Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway!


Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck
The Royal Wedding Series
Zondervan/
Release date: February 4, 2013

About the book: A Royal Wedding Book
Regina Beswick was born to be a princess.
But she's content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother's hand-painted book of fairytales.
Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation's future---and his own.

Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever. Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide if she's destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together---with a little divine intervention---Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.





If I wasn't a fan of Rachel after the first book then this one definitely sealed the deal. There is just something about a regular girl getting shipped off to another country and become royal that I love. Maybe its the fact that all girls wanted to be a princess or meet her prince. Rachel has a way of capturing your attention with each page and before you know it you have spent a whole day glued to the book feeling every emotion as they present themselves through the characters. I feel completely in love with these characters and never wanted the story to end. Regina owns a car restoration shop in Tallahassee, FL. She used to be a hot shot accountant but went after her passion of restoring classic cars. Every Friday they had a gathering called Reggie's Court where they talked shop with friends and had an evening of love and laughter. The last thing Reggie expected was for handsome Tanner to walk in and turn her would upside down. Tanner has been sent by the king to bring Princess Regina back to Hessenberg to give them their country back. Tanner is determined to not stay from the mission because of his dark past. The never thought Reggie would be so difficult or beautiful. She made him feel things that he never had before or thought he would ever find. Reggie goes to Hessenberg with Tanner to give it a try and to find out more about her grandmother. As she struggles with the truth of who she is, she also struggles with falling in love and feeling things she never allowed herself to feel before. If anyone remembers my review of Once Upon A Prince then you know how much I loved Nathaniel. That alone was reason enough for me to want this book. Even though he is hard to replace, Tanner was really incredible. He went from the tough guy keeping his emotions in check to completely surrendering to love and making you swoon half way to the moon. I highly recommend everyone jump on the Royal Wedding boat. You will be completely blown away.
