My Favorite Book Couple with Robin Bielman


Robin Bielman lives in Southern California with her high school sweetheart husband, two sons, and crazy-cute mini Labradoodle, Harry. When not attached to her laptop, she can almost always be found with her nose in a book. She also likes to run, hike, and dip her toes in the ocean. Filled with wanderlust, she longs to visit many different places and fulfill her curiosity. She wouldn’t mind indulging her sweet tooth in every location either. She’s a lover of sticky notes, cable television shows and coffee drinks. Writing is a dream come true, and she still pinches herself to be sure it’s real.

She writes contemporary and paranormal romance. Her Secret Wishes series includes Kissing the Maid of Honor, RITA® Finalist Her Accidental Boyfriend, and Wild About Her Wingman. In July, 2014 her first single title paranormal romance, Veiled Target, will be released. She loves to connect with readers.

Hi everyone! I’m so happy and honored to be here today to celebrate Dani’s 3rd blogoversary! Happy, happy blogoversary, Dani and best wishes for many, many more!

When Dani told me she wanted a post on my all-time favorite book couple, I thought holy cow, how can I pick just one? And the truth is, I don’t think any of us who read romance can pick just one. So I’m going to go with my most recent favorite. A couple I still think about and who always make me smile and sigh when I do. A couple that made me laugh and root for them. A couple that made me want to leap through my eReader so I could hang out with them in person. (Hey, get your mind out of the gutter. Not like that.) But you know, I could be their friend and neighbor. I loved the town of Bluelick!

Know the couple I’m talking about now? It’s none other than the very yummy Tyler Longfoot and Dr. Ellie Swann from Samanthe Beck’s debut novel, PRIVATE PRACTICE.

Tyler is the town badass with killer charm. He’s got a reputation with the ladies going back to high school and Ellie wants him for it. You see, Ellie “Sparky” Swan might be a pro at medicine, but she needs some help in another department. The uh, sex department. And if Tyler will teach her how to be a wild woman in bed, well then, she’ll keep the secret of how he accidentally got shot—in his very fine ass. How fun is that set-up?

And things just get better and better from there. The dialogue between them is smart, sexy and delightful, and the sexual tension is off the charts. I fell head over heels in love with Tyler. I love a bad boy with a heart of gold. And I adored Ellie. She’s sweet, good-natured, and a little research-driven—until Tyler uses his expert ways on her. Watching them discover they had more in common than they realized and fall in love was the best. With heart, humor and supporting characters that made me smile, too, this book is the kind of story I can read over and over again. Thus, this couple is one of my all time favorites! And I absolutely have to mention that PRIVATE PRACTICE is a 2-time RITA® Finalist – for Best Erotic Romance and Best First Book. Huge congrats to Samanthe! Oh, and I’m super excited that there will be more books set in Blulick!

To celebrate Dani’s blogoversary, leave me a comment telling me what kind of hero you like best—man in uniform, man with a tool belt, man who works with is hands, etc.—and you’ll be entered to win an eBook copy of PRIVATE PRACTICE. I’m also giving away an eBook copy of my book, HER ACCIDENTAL BOYFRIEND. I think my hero Shane would get along quite well with Tyler.


He’ll teach her how to bring a man to his knees…

Dr. Ellie Swan has a plan: open her practice in tiny Bluelick, Kentucky, so she can keep an eye on her diabetic father, and make hometown golden-boy Roger Reynolds fall in love with her. But Ellie has a problem. Roger seeks a skilled, sexually adventurous partner, and bookish Ellie doesn’t qualify.

Tyler Longfoot only cares about three things: shaking his bad boy image, qualifying for the loan his company needs to rehab a piece of Bluelick’s history, and convincing Ellie to keep quiet about the “incident” that lands him on her doorstep at two a.m. with a bullet in his behind.

The adorable Dr. Swan drives a mean bargain, though. If sex-on-a-stick Tyler will teach Ellie how to bring a man to his knees, she’ll forget about the bullet. Armed with The Wild Woman’s Guide to Sex and Tyler’s lessons, Ellie is confident she can become what Roger needs…if she doesn’t fall for Tyler first.

Playing it safe never felt so risky.

Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…

As a rescue paramedic, Troy’s used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin’s wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn’t let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy’s a play-it-safe guy, and he won’t let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.

  6. LOL! That's a tough question b/c I don't really have preferences; I have moods. I love all those types of heroes and it just depends if I'm in the mood to read their story.

    Robin's book couple choice sounds fun and I'm pretty sure I already have the book on my wish list b/c I thought that already. Haha! Robin's book sounds great too. I read a different one by her and enjoyed her writing. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  16. Hey Robin! It's not really fair to ask for one type of favorite hero! There are so many awesome ones out there and quite honestly I often pick my next book based on which type I'm in the mood to have as my next book boyfriend. :-)

  23. I think I prefer a man in uniform, though an alpha personality in any profession works just as well! I'm very happy with my mild-mannered (teacher) husband, but it's nice to live in another person's reality every so often. I just finished Wild About Her Wingman - it was great! Thanks for the giveaway! :-)
