Featured Book: Take Me Away

I can't imagine how exciting it would be to submit a story, only to find out it's release day is less than a month later. Of course it's also a whirlwind of activity as the author puts together the promotion. Tina has amazed me with her organization and amazing energy as I watched her put everything together for her newest release.

I told her the cover alone will sell this story:) Be sure to watch the trailer below...the ending makes me smile every time.

Take Me Away
by Tina Donahue

She’s everything he escaped…and all that he desires

Three years ago, Kyle turned his back on a pro-football career and being the target of tabloids or gold-digging groupies. Craving privacy, he gets it at his roadhouse in Northern California until Lexi Sands invades his life. Indulged and surely phony, she’s exactly what Kyle fled.

An actress since childhood, Lexi’s fresh out of an anger management program, court-ordered when she lashed out at a badgering paparazzo. Weary of the press’s harsh scrutiny, she sees Kyle’s secluded cabin as the ideal place to hide out and him as a damn-near perfect alpha male. Deliciously virile. Protective. Principled. She offers him serious cash to let her stay for two weeks, assuring there will be no complications or touching.

Yeah, right. Passion flares, along with tenderness. Kyle recognizes how lonely Lexi really is, while she’s falling hard. Through intimate days and impassioned nights, they explore their most shameless needs, until a cruel betrayal exposes their growing love, forcing a choice neither anticipated.

Sure it's excitiing having short notice that a book is being released--sort of like the excitement of hearing that a meteorite the size of Texas has hit. As usual, you have taken it in stride though, Tina. Loved the video. I know Take Me Away is going to be a huge success.

Yep, that's what it felt like - being slammed by a meteor! :)
