Carly Phillips Release Day!

I’ve known New York Times bestselling author  Carly Phillips for a long long time and I’ve been a fan even longer.  I’m very excited that she has a brand new release out today, Dare to Desire, and this story once again delivers her trademark hot, sexy characters and fun, fantastic plots!

NY Times Bestselling Author Carly Phillips turns up the heat in her newest sexy contemporary romance series, and introduces you to the Dare family… siblings shaped by a father’s secrets and betrayal.
“One of my favorite reads this year.” HM Ward, NYT Bestselling Author on Dare to Love
Quarterback Alex Dare, had it all — an all-star football career and his choice of willing women — until injury forces him into early retirement. When he is offered a ground-breaking position with a rival team, he’s intrigued, but there’s a catch. He’ll be working alongside the same woman he callously hurt when she got too close for comfort. Social worker Madison Evans grew up in foster homes and knows what it means to have-not. She isn’t impressed by Alex Dare’s wealth or charm. Not since she fell hard for him once before, only to discover she was just one of his too-easy conquests.
This time around Madison refuses to succumb to Alex so easily. But Alex wants Madison. And if there is one thing Alex does well, it’s to get what he wants. Can he convince Madison to take a risk and dare to love?

Because enquiring minds want to know, I emailed Carly and asked her some very important questions.

Q.  Carly, which do you like better Beach or Mountains?

A.  Jane, the Beach


Q.  Carly, Historical romance or Paranormal?

A.  Paranormal (give me some shifters, baby!)


Q.  And Carly, the most important of all.  Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate?

A.  Milk chocolate!
