Feature and Giveaway: Anything You Want by Erin Nicholas

Suppose the solution to all your problems is the one thing you never wanted…

It figures the one time Sabrina Cassidy is determined to do the responsible thing, karma kicks in. After four years on the road chasing her musical dream, she’s stranded six hours from home with no money, a ruined credit history—and morning sickness.

Out of options, she swallows her legendary independent streak and calls the only person who won’t hang up on her. Luke, the man she left behind.

Marc Sterling’s first instinct is to protect his business partner and best friend from another broken heart. That means letting her think she’s talking to Luke, then finding a way to send her in the opposite direction.

When he shows up at her hotel room, there’s something in the air beside their customary insults. Sure, her rebellious attitude, smart mouth—and purple panties—still drive him crazy, but now it’s a different kind of crazy. The kind that has him driving her home instead of to the nearest airport.

And when Luke offers to solve all her problems if she’ll only say “I do”, Marc realizes he’s just crazy enough—about her—to forget whose heart he wanted to protect.

Warning: Contains two people who don’t like each other very much, a Toyota that can’t quite handle the road trip home, and a spontaneous proposal. Or two. Or three. And foreplay with—what else—pie filling.

Places to Purchase:

That wasn’t going to fly. If he didn’t want to fight with her now, he soon would.

She reached out and grabbed the closest thing, a can of apple pie filling. She scooped out a handful and flung it at him, hitting him directly in the center of the chest.

He froze, the rolling pin gripped in his hands.

When he didn’t react further than that, she took another handful and threw it. It hit him on the front of his right shoulder.

He put the rolling pin down and finally looked up her. There was a dangerous glint in his eyes as he began unbuttoning his shirt. “That’s how you want to do this?”

Her heart was pounding and she was sure it was from anger. It had to be anger.

But as more and more of his chest was revealed she knew that lie wasn’t going to make it much further. He shrugged out of the shirt entirely a moment later and her heart rate kicked into high gear.

Wow. He was muscled and broad, skin tanned with light hair gracing his pecs and stomach. She wanted to touch it. All of it. With her tongue.

This was bad.

He started toward her. She backed up. “How I want to do what?”

“Get me naked.”

“I…don’t…” But she couldn’t quite get the lie out. She did want him naked. Bad.

I've been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber... they took my 'happily ever after' ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.

I've been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I'll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father's love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I'm sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.

But it wasn't long until I started writing about true love and that's where I've been ever since.

I'm so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.

  1. Hi Erin. I have not heard of you before but you sound like you incorporate humorous with sexiness... for me the perfect Combo! After reading all of your book summaries I think you would show up on a If you like Jill Shslvis list you'll like Erin Nicholas. I signed up to receive your newsletter too!

  2. ANYTHING YOU WANT does look like such a fun read. The warning makes me laugh every time.


  3. This book sounds amazing. Can't wait to read it to see what happens with Sabrina, Marc, and Luke. Great excerpt.


  4. Thanks for letting me be here today!
    Hi Cindy! Thanks for checking out my books and all! And thank you for the huge compliment-- I love Jill Shalvis!
    Marybelle and Joanne, thanks for stopping by and saying such nice things :)

  5. Did you know before you started writing that there would be 2 books in the series? I'm always curious to see how far in advance an author plans their series.

    1. Good question! No :) In fact, in the first draft of this book I intended for Luke and Sabrina to get together and Marc to continue in the best friend role. When it became clear that Marc was the right guy for her I felt bad for Luke and knew he had to have a book too! *G*

  6. hi erin!

    anything you want sounds like a heartfelt read, i would love to read it :)

  7. Congrats on the newest release! Thanks for a fantastic post and giveaway! I've always read such high praise for Erin's books I'd love to try them. Definitely adding this one to my wishlist.

    P.S. Erin has a fabulous name ;)

  8. In an earlier comment, you said you spent a lot of time on character development, background, etc. While writing your books, have particular characters jumped out at you demanding their own book when you hadn't planned on giving them one?

    1. Definitely! I meant for Anything You Want to be a single book, but then Luke needed a book, especially after I had to break his heart! :) Also, the first book of my Bradford series (which will have 5 books total this fall) wasn't intended to be a series at all! But Sam, the brother of the heroine in the first book, quickly became one of my favorite guys and I had to write his book... and it took off from there! *G*

  9. Hi Erin! I do love your books and can't wait for more. Congrats on the release & blog tour!

  14. Thanks for stopping by everyone! I appreciate the nice words and hope you'll let me know what you think if you check Anything You Want out! :)

  15. You have to love a man who uses a rolling pin for good instead of evil...


  16. I'm glad I finally got to read the "pie filling" scene. I wonder if it gets even more messily amorous? I'll have to read the book to find out! LOL. And how sexy to see a guy with a rolling pin...

  17. sounds like this story has a lot of twists and turns. But it also sounds really fun.

  18. LOL! Yes, that's not the end of the scene... or the pie filling! :)

  19. I just discovered you as an author and your books sound amazing.
