Guest Post with Robin Bielman and Giveaway

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.

Hello Ramblings From This Chick readers! I’m so happy to be here today to celebrate a very special sale. For one week only my debut book, WORTH THE RISK, is free! And for a limited time the second book in my Take A Risk series, RISKY SURRENDER, is only .99¢!

Huge thanks to Danielle for helping me spread the word by letting me hang out here today with talk about kissing – and a giveaway!

WORTH THE RISK is about Sam and Dean (not the Supernatural duo). They spent a summer together after college and now five years later, they’re face to face again vying for the same job.

Their love was ancient history…until their paths crossed again

Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he's back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career--if he doesn't steal her heart first. Samantha's vowed to hate him, but it's more than anger heating the competition between them.

With sparks flying across the conference table and sizzling in every touch, Dean proposes a weekend liaison. Anything to have Sam again; anything to get her out of his system. But the unresolved feelings between them complicate both their personal and professional lives, and one wild weekend could turn into a disaster that would destroy the one job that means more to Samantha than anything. For a shot at it worth the risk?

This book has a really special place in my heart because it was my first one. When I sat down to write it I got to thinking about what my favorite part of any story was and I realized it’s the first kiss. That magical moment when two people can’t keep their hands – or rather mouths – off each other.

So, since Sam and Dean’s first kiss takes place five years before the novel opens, I wanted their First Kiss after they meet up again to be really Something. It takes place in a bar and involves a hot sauce game. Here’s a peek…

He cupped her cheek and looked deep into her eyes. “One kiss, Sam. I dare you.”

Damn him. If she didn’t agree, he’d think he won something here, and she couldn’t let that happen. She couldn’t let him beat her over a silly kiss. Especially if he thought his kiss would distract her from the reason she was in town.

“Fine. I’m game.”

Whistles and sighs echoed around their corner of the bar while Joe grabbed two bottles of hot sauce off the table. “The rules are”—he looked at Sam as he spoke—“time starts when I say go. Your lips must stay in contact. Tongue is optional. As soon as you part, time stops. Ready?” 

With eyes stuck on each other, they nodded. Joe stood over them with a bottle of sauce in each hand and they simultaneously tilted their heads back to receive several drops on their tongues. 


I hope you’ll check out how the kiss went. =) And I’d love to hear about your first kiss! Was it worthy of a second one or did it leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. hee hee Leave me a comment and you’ll be entered to win a Take A Risk Chick T-shirt. The awesome Samanthe Beck has got one and we all want to be like her don’t we? (Thanks, Samanthe, for rocking the shirt and modeling for me!)

She'll search for treasure, but steal his heart.

Lucy Davenport made a promise to her father and husband right before they died and she's vowed to keep it any cost. But when she draws unwanted attention to her secret plans, she's forced to risk everything she's kept guarded. Because the man standing in her way threatens not only her goal, but the walls she's carefully constructed around her heart.

Keats McCall is an environmental preservationist navigating the globe on behalf of heritage protection. When he catches Lucy at his latest project, he suspects she's up to no good. She's secretive, sexy as hell--and has trouble written all over her. He devises a plan to keep her close so he can keep an eye on her. But what he isn't prepared for is just how close he wants to get.
