The Bookish Brunette Reviews Whirlwind

Today’s tour stop and giveaway is at The Bookish Brunette. She gives Whirlwind 4 Stilettos:

“A delightfully quick and entertaining read- Whirlwind describes itself perfectly with it’s title!

The first 100 or so pages were like tortuously sensual, perfect foreplay between Jason and Mel. Yum. Jason is so hot like melted butter dripping off- Oh! TMI… I suppose.”

The tour and giveaways continue! Tomorrow’s stop is Supernatural Snark. I’ll be comparing writing contemporary vs. writing paranormal romances.

Books and Things Reviews Whirlwind

Today’s tour stop is at Books and Things. Melissa reviews Whirlwind and talks about her namesake:

“This book is a sweet contemporary romance with a bit of action thrown in for good measure. Melissa is a interesting character. In some ways quite strong, in others quite fragile. She can hold her own with the boys but does not think she is dating material, since none of the “boys” have ever asked her out. However, when she meets Jason, her best friend’s brother, that view comes into question. Jason is smexy, sweet, and very romantic. Although they had fun on-line for a brief moment, it takes Melissa a while to figure out she is Jason’s match. In fact she is so worried about the ending of the relationship, she almost ruins the present.”

Can you relate to a woman who considers herself one of the guys? Comment on the post at Books and Things, and you could win an autographed copy of Whirlwind.

For What It’s Worth Reviews Whirlwind

Today’s tour stop is at For What It’s Worth. Karen analyzes and reviews Whirlwind:

“Typically these type of insta-love stories don’t work for me but I enjoyed Melissa and Jason’s romance. It could be because Mitch is Melissa’s best friend so I felt his brother Jason wasn’t just some random guy popping up out of nowhere. She has chatted with Jason on line before, she has met his parents already so I could see where there would be a comfort level already established.”

What do you think? Is love at first sight something you like? Comment on the post at For What It’s Worth, and you could win an autographed copy of Whirlwind.

Secondary Characters Get Their Say in Outtakes

Today’s Whirlwind Blog Tour stop is at A Trail of Books Left Behind.

Megan was kind enough to allow me to guest post on her blog today and discuss some of the minor characters in Whirlwind. Too often, minor characters have stories all their own, but there just isn’t space in the book to tell them all. So, in addition to peeking into some of the back story involving characters like Mitch and Linda, I’ve also posted two outtakes from Whirlwind. Strap on your chaps and find your cowboy hat because we’re going to the rodeo!

Check out how Melissa’s first assignment for the Mission Daily in Meeting Mitch, and then the aftermath of her…um…misunderstanding with him in The Apology. You can also find these and other goodies under the “Extras” tab above.

Don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY on A Trail of Books Left Behind to win a free e-Copy of Whirlwind! Every stop on the tour will give away a copy.

And also check out Megan’s review of Whirlwind HERE.

After seeing yummy photos of Jason on The Unread Reader last week, readers asked for Missie to show us who she’d pick for Mitch, and she has! Check out Melissa’s steer-wrestling best friend on today’s edition of My Book Boyfriend (CLICK HERE).

Be warned: You might want to pour yourself a cool drink and pick up a fan first…
