I’m so delighted to have the extremely talented Robin Bielman on my blog today! I was thrilled when she agreed to write a story for Montana Born’s Bachelor Auction and I can’t wait to introduce her to all my readers….although I know a number of you are already a fan.
For those who may not be as familiar with her, Robin is a USA Today author and a RITA finalist who loves to read, take hikes with her hubby and loves to frequent coffee shops. A California girl, the beach is Robin’s favorite place for fun, relaxation and inspiration. Here’s Robin now to tell us more about her new book, Falling For Her Bachelor!
Thanks so much for inviting me to be on your blog, Jane! (You guys, before I even met Jane, I read her blog. This goes back years and I’m a total fan girl so this is kind of surreal – and wonderful.)
I’m also wonderfully happy to be a part of the Tule Publishing family now! My first book with them, Falling for Her Bachelor, is part of the Bachelor Auction Returns series! My story is book two and it’s been such a pleasure and honor to be in a series with Charlene Sands, Sinclair Jayne and Jeannie Moon. As with the first bachelor auction series, our books take place in the small town of Marietta, but this time they bring together four high school football friends on the auction block to help their coach raise money for a worthy cause.
I can remember vividly several months ago when Charlene emailed me asking if I’d like to participate in this series with her. You see, Charlene isn’t just a writer friend; she’s also my mentor. We were paired together years ago during a mentoring program with our local RWA chapter, and we immediately became fast friends. So much so, that we’re friends outside of writing, too. She’s answered countless questions of mine, plotted with me, listened to me, shared advice on publishing, and always been just a phone call or email away. So getting the chance to be a part of something with her has been a dream come true. Add in the awesomeness that is Tule Publishing, and this experience has been really special.
Writing Falling for Her Bachelor was really fun, too. Nick and Cassidy came to me pretty quickly and their story flowed easily. That doesn’t always happen when writing! I had an especially good time learning about Marietta and adding characters to the already established town. And okay, writing about a hot Navy firefighter in a bachelor auction also made for lots of happy writing days.
Charlene’s book, Bachelor for Hire is live now along with mine. Sinclair’s, Seducing the Bachelor is releasing on April 19th. And Jeannie’s Weekend with Her Bachelor is releasing on April 26th. Four sexy bachelors and I’m thrilled I got to be part of it!
About Falling for Her Bachelor…
When Navy firefighter Nick Palotay returns to Marietta to go on the bachelor auction block for a good cause, he expects it to be risk free. But when he needs someone safe to bid on him and his sister’s best friend is coaxed into stepping up, Nick isn’t prepared for the effect Cassidy has on him. She sends his mind to all kinds of dirty places…places his battered heart can’t afford.
Freelance photographer Cassidy Ware is in waaay over her head. She’s always been Nick’s other little sister, but she’s all grown up now and just a glance from him leaves her hot and bothered. Still, she can stay immune to his charms and keep him at an emotional distance because she’s got an agenda, too. She’ll help the too-handsome Nick with his charitable deed, and, in return, he’ll help her keep an unwelcome suitor at bay.
A deal’s a deal, but when their “business transaction” turns into more pleasure than duty, can they walk away from each other without losing what matters most?
