Despite instructions from the Romance Man that my post had to be DIRRRTTTYY and that my momma was banned from his blog, I’m super excited to be here today to talk about my debut, TWICE TEMPTED. I love reading his blogs and the BBL’s awesome comments.
Most of the time I lurk, but it’s because I can’t think of something that would contribute to the conversation. Or RM tells me that he has no idea what I’m talking about. Plus, he told me I looked exactly like a school teacher (still not sure what the heck that means).
So…Since I’m a very good Southern Girl who loves her momma, I present to you, BBLs, The Romance Man’s 1st Evah Dirty ManCandy Blog Post.
Who wants to hose them off first?
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: What are they keeping in those reverse fanny packs?
What is it again that I’m here for? Oh, right! In my debut novel, TWICE TEMPTED, my naughty British Bad Boy hero has a Very Dirty Secret. Only too bad for him it’s been recorded in the form of digital images, ready to go viral at the double click of a mouse. His agent’s reaction: Christian must change his party reputation by finding a small town girl to be seen with at the first opportunity.
Even worse—the small town girl he runs into at the airport wants nothing to do with the playboy actor. Not at first anyway. ;)
So BBLs, do you think Dirty ManCandy, sponsored by The Romance Man, should become a WEEKLYtradition?
WAIT!! I can’t leave off RM’s favorite (and mine, too), Tim Tebow! Hee!
GIVEAWAY: Leave a comment to enter, and I’ll give away two copies of Twice Tempted (e-book only) to randomly chosen winners!

Born into wealth and power, Christian Romanov is Hollywood’s favorite bad boy with a golden touch…until the day his agent receives pictures of the movie star celebrating his birthday in a not-so-legal way. Now he’s been ordered to find a small-town girl to be seen with in order to improve his partying image. He agrees, but for an entirely different reason-to protect the reputation of an organization that helps get teen off the street and back into the school. Not only is he the anonymous donor that’s been solely supporting the organization since its inception, he’s slated to be their newest spokesman.
What happens in Vegas,
Zoe Ambrose is a hopeless romantic masquerading as a realist. But she’s also a successful novelist, trying to fit herself into a staid life when what she craves is the adventure she found one night in the arms of a playboy who never knew her name. When her successful crime series is optioned by a major studio, she travels to Las Vegas to find that the prince of her fantasies and single night of pleasure is the main contender for the male lead. But for four years Zoe has been publicly eviscerating the man who left her stranded that night—he’s the villain in her series! Now the movie star doesn’t recognize her, and Zoe is determined to protect her heart this time.
Doesn’t Stay in Vegas.
When Christian braves the small town of Holland Springs and Zoe’s overprotective family to win the girl of his dreams, he finds that his Hollywood skills might not cut it—and learns a shocking truth he never imagined. Can he tempt her again and finally give her the epic love story she has refused to write for herself?
Marquita Valentine writes small town romances that are anything but small. Lisa Kleypas, Carly Phillips and Rachel Gibson are among her favorite contemporary authors. Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man — and if that doesn’t work, they can console themselves with cheesy tatertots. She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.
You can find Marquita all over the internet:
