Welcome Guest Author Tamara LeBlanc!


Thank you so much for having me on your wonderful blog, Pam! I’m thrilled to be here today in order to let your followers know a little about myself and my new book available now in print and e-book formats.

I'm a fiction writer and author of contemporary, paranormal and historical romances layered with eroticism that builds into a satisfyingly happy ending…in more ways than one.
I've been writing all my life, creating characters, fashioning plots, researching ideas. But about eleven years ago I met my critique group and with their help I moved forward in my career by joining Georgia Romance Writers and Romance Writers of America. I owe much of my success to these three phenomenal groups.

My newly released novel The Mayor’s Bride; A Match in Magnolia Falls Romance is the first in a series set in the fictional town of Magnolia Falls, Georgia. Though the books in this series are linked by family they are completely stand alone as well and all end with a happily ever after.

Here is the blurb:
When Alex York, the Mayor of Magnolia Falls, hears his young son speak for the first time in two years, he immediately hires the woman responsible to be the boy’s live-in nanny. Though Alex never intends to seduce her into his bed, Ella Slipper’s endearing eccentricities, rebellious nature and startling blue eyes are impossible to resist.   Ella wants to keep things professional, but she can’t help melting in Alex’s arms.  He might help her forget the pain of her past, but can she let the sexy single dad into her heart?

Excerpt:
Pinning her gently against the wall he cupped her face in both hands. “Ella.” The way he said her name, hardly more than a whisper, made it seem like the air itself held its breath in anticipation. Raw emotion darkened his green eyes. He leaned in and pressed his lips against hers.
Their first kiss had been rough and hungry. They’d fallen into bed in a frenzy and he’d wasted no time separating her from her towel. 
This was different. 
He took his time, like he wanted to savor every second. The softness of his lips, the gentle pressure against her mouth, the warmth of his fingers sliding into her hair, spun the butterflies into a vortex of frantic fluttering in her core.
This kiss was different, but just as thrilling and sexually intoxicating as it had been last night. 
Her lips parted beneath his, inviting his tongue to caress the recess of her mouth. Her brain and knees were made of bubbles. She held on tight so she wouldn’t float away.

I truly enjoyed writing this story. The relationship between Ella, Alex and his little boy, Eric, is not a complicated one, but I believe its emotional appeal is relevant enough to ring true.
Love does not always come easily. Sometimes it eludes us, frustrates us, makes us want to pull our hair out, but to me, crafting a happily ever after in the wake of turmoil and despair can be very satisfying, both as an author and a reader.
Love is worthwhile. Love is necessary. Love is as important as air.
So is a good book.
I hope you feel the same way about The Mayor's Bride that I do.

I love hearing from you.
