Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're joining Simon & Schuster (Hi, Melissa!) for a blog tour starring the FIRST title in a planned series from authors Harper St. George and Tara White. Its genre is Romance, and though I've featured that many times before, generally they stray to the contemporary side of things; this one is a bit more middle of the line...with some definite smexy appeal. Hey, take a look at the cover...it's not my usual preference...but the story was what really caught my attention and so, here I am, bringing it to YOUR attention today! So grab your boxing gloves and get ready to rumble because today's title is in the ring...
The Blood and Glory series, Volume 1
Harper St. George and Tara Wyatt
Pocket Star EBook
“St. George (A Marriage Deal with the Outlaw) and Wyatt (Necessary Work) have written a fast-paced romance filled with sizzling chemistry, which will have readers rooting for Jules and Nick to find their way back to each other. Verdict: This novel will have broad appeal for readers of sexy contemporary romance, not just those who have an interest in MMA.”—Library Journal
After an unstable childhood, Jules Darcy is very familiar with the risks of falling in love. And as an adult, she’s never let herself forget just how high those stakes can be. That’s why she ran away a year ago after her fling with MMA fighter Nick Giannakis quickly got serious. But when she jumps at the opportunity to reconnect with her dad by accepting a job with his growing fight league, she’s stunned to learn the abs, the chiseled arms, and the rock-solid punches she has to market belong to none other than her former fling. Unable to run away from the sexy middleweight this time, Jules vows to keep things strictly professional. But one look at Nick, and her resolve starts to crumble….
The last thing Nick expects when he signs with the prestigious World Fighting Championship is that he’ll have to work with the only woman who ever broke his heart. Desperate to hide the pain she caused him, Nick vows to keep his distance from his gorgeous ex. But when he realizes their intense chemistry hasn’t faded after a year apart, he wonders if they could have a future together, even if dating the boss’s daughter could complicate his bid for the championship belt.
Under the bright lights of Las Vegas, in the world of high-stakes prize fighting, they’ll have to take a risk and decide if their love is worth fighting for.
