I am so excited to be hosting Fiona Jayde today in celebration of her new book, available through Samhain Publishing, 'Pas De Deux'. Here is the blurb to learn a bit more about the book:
One wrong move, and she could be dancing on her grave…
Two years after an injury put her dancing career on hold, Lynnrina Kovaleva is determined to reclaim her place on the stage. On the eve of her comeback production, she takes the edge off her nerves with a one-night stand in the strong arms of celebrity bodyguard Mateo Rivera.
Ex-cop Mateo is celebrating one hell of an anniversary: eight months since he was declared unfit for duty. When a delicate beauty boldly propositions him in a bar, he chooses to lose himself in her body rather than lose his mind to alcohol. This choice comes back to haunt him when he’s hired to protect a prima ballerina who’s been receiving threats.
Despite her shock at seeing him again, Lynn must not allow their intense attraction—or any creepy fan letters—to undermine her performance. Mateo can’t reconcile this coldly focused dancer with the passionate woman who seduced him. Yet he sees fire under the ice, pain hidden by the smooth mask of perfection.
The vivid memory of their entwined bodies wars with the job at hand, but he must keep Lynn safe—regardless of the cost. The most difficult challenge, however, will be keeping his hands to himself.
Warning: Contains jetés, pliés, a chilling touch of danger, and the boiling heat of an unwanted attraction that combusts into passionate sex.
And here is Fiona Jayde...
Some of my favorite guilty rereads revolve around such premise:
1. Linda Howard's Ice - this recent release immediately caught my attention. I love Linda Howard as it is, but the premise - hero rescuing a heroine in a snowstorm had me at first page:) To top it off, the heroine was a firecracker and was rescuing herself when said hero showed up! It was a short book, but immediately one of my favorites.
2. Skin Deep by Nora Roberts - classic tale of a movie star and her bodyguard. Throw in a stalker and hilarious family for a terrific read. Plus it's written by Nora who is one of my favorite authors!!
3. Once A Princess by Johanna Lindsey features a bold fearless heroine (who happens to be a Royal Princess but doesn't give a crap about that!) and a sexy intense Prince grimly determined to marry her and keep her safe from those committed to ending her bloodline. Of course Prince and Princess fall in love at the end of the book, but what a thrill ride! (Can I just say I adore Johanna Lindsey romance novels?)
4. Lover Mine - JR Ward. I admit, I actually haven't read that one, much less re-read it :) But I think I know how its going to go - John Mathew will rescue Xhex from the evil Lash. And since Xhex is one hell of an ass kicker, she won't take either the kidnapping nor the rescue kindly:) Can't wait for May to read the next installment from JR Ward! (Yes that was a fan girl sqee that you all just heard lol)
5. Jane's Warlord by Angela Knight features a hunky time-traveling hero determined to save the heroine from a murderer determined to end her life. Baran is gorgeous, intense and determined to keep the Jane Colby alive at all cost. It was one of the first things I read by Angela Knight and have been a fan ever since!
