Winner of Finding Zoe

Well, can you believe I almost forgot to choose a winner of Finding Zoe from the Summer Lovin' Blog Hop? Thanks to all who entered, it was a great hop.

The winner is GingerRing who said a quiet place by the water was her favourite summer location - a woman after my own heart. Trickling water, a book, a flask of coffee and piece of chocolate cake. Uh oh, here I go getting carried away with thoughts of food and drink.

Congratulations, I hope you love it.

For those of you who didn't win, why not treat yourself to the download anyway.

Summer Loving Blog Hop

Being English, I’m used to wildly changing seasons, and mainly I love them all, but a long wet winter has dragged this year and I for one am delighted to greet summer.
Summer to me is about walking through the footpaths that meander through fields of crops, across meadows of wildflowers and alongside trickling streams and gushing rivers. Accompanied by my Dalmatian, Skye and soon I imagine our new puppy Beau, this is where I get my inspiration from. Not the beaches and the bars, but the quiet, solitary walks I take in the Shropshire countryside.

This is the setting for Book 3 in my Atlantic Divide Series, Finding Zoe.
Excerpt Almost eleven years had passed since he’d been there. Right at this very spot in the heart of Shropshire, England. Eleven years and his heart soared as he stood at the top of Major’s Leap on Wenlock Edge, careful not to get too close to the bluff in case his fear of heights got the better of him. He breathed in the fresh English air, filled his lungs with it.

Craving blog tour

Secret Cravings

Why is it that I always crave the things I can’t have? Like when I’m on a diet and I long for McDonald’s fries, and moist sweet carrot cake with cream cheese frosting? Or when I only have plain vanilla ice cream in the freezer, I have a desperate craving for Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream?

Actually, I’ve craved Ben & Jerry’s ice cream ever since moving to New Zealand, some 6 years ago. That and Marks & Spencer chocolate mini bites… OMG, they were divine.

In Craving (Talisman #2), my hero—Dante—craves the woman he shouldn’t have. Of course! I don’t like to make things easy for my characters J Excerpt

“You’re too good for me, Kitten.” Keeping our hands linked, he stood up and closed the final distance between us, wrapping his free arm around me. I dipped my head to rest against his chest, engulfed in his embrace. It felt as though I’d come home. He dropped a gentle kiss on the top of my head and sighed deeply. “I don’t want you to become another casualty of …

Delicious Delay by Tara Quan – 99c SALE!

Thank you for letting me share my multicultural contemporary romance, Delicious Delay. The book is currently on sale for a limited time. You can grab it for only 99c from Amazon, B&N, AllRomance, and Decadent. After my own not-so-delicious delay in the Middle East, I set out to write something funny, sexy, and set entirely in an airport lounge. It’s a quick summer read meant to make your mouth water (from the food...) and your toes curl. I hope I’ve piqued your interest enough to give one of the links below a click. ~Tara Quan
Delicious Delay Stranded in a Middle Eastern airport, Michelle Day finds herself the object of interest for an abrasive, but all-too-sexy stranger—a stranger who tempts her with the forbidden in a land where indecency could get her killed. But how does one say no to such a deliciously, relentless pursuit? Khalid Al Dehri takes one look at the red-headed spitfire in the business class lounge and knew he’d either been transported to heaven—or hell. Her tart resp…
