Now, drumroll please!! Hilariously funny and sizzlingly sexy Victoria Dahl is my guest today! CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH is yet another installment of Victoria's trademarked brand of wicked, racy fun. Her books catch you off guard with their wonderfully emotional poignancy--just when you're laughing out loud, you'll catch yourself sighing with satisfaction.
Here's a preview:
Can a city girl make it in the wild, wild West?
For makeup artist Grace Barrett, Hollywood isn't the land of golden opportunity. It's the land of difficult divas, cheating boyfriends and unemployment. So when her great-aunt offers her a free place to stay in Jackson, Grace thinks she'll spend a little time in the sticks to figure out her life, and then move somewhere exciting to live out her dreams. But it turns out that there are a few more thrills in this small town than Grace was expecting....
Cole Rawlins is a rugged Wyoming cowboy born and bred. Yet he can't help but be drawn to the fascinating big-city girl who moves in across from him. He wants to get close enough to Grace to see past her tough facade, but if he does, she might see the real Cole. The one with a Hollywood history gone bad. As they discover a sizzling attraction, it becomes harder for him to keep his demons at bay-and those fires from long ago may burn them both.
They'll need more than scorching-hot passion to make this opposites-attract affair work. But if they can learn to trust one another enough to reveal their secrets, they just might have a chance at forever.For a special sneak-peek, check out an excerpt here!
And, finally, for the Frivolous Five! Learn more about Victorial and, for a chance to win a copy of CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH, answer this question in the comments: If you, like Victoria, live in the frozen tundra, or, like me, live in the equatorial rain forest, (or anywhere else), tell us 1) what state or country, and 2) what is the average hottest day in summer and coldest day in winter where you live? Good luck! - Alyssa
Q: Before Twitter, how did you share The Naughty with the world?
Before Twitter, I really only shared The Naughty via my books! Honestly, I was very tame…as far as most people knew. The only people I got honest with were my closest girlfriends. But I find that the older I get, the more I want to be myself. And the great thing is that the Internet makes that easy. Like is drawn to like, or maybe just naughty to naughty.
Q: Are you a better at: pool, darts, or quarters?
V: Hmm. I'd have to say pool, because my grandparents had a pool table in their basement, and I didn't take up quarters until college.
Q: So, you live at the North Pole. Have you ever been reindeer hunting?
V: LMAO! Park City is not that cold, Alyssa! It's a dry cold. Crisp and cool! And no, no reindeer, though I do see elk, moose, and regular old deer.
Q: Favorite Girl Scout cookie flavor? If not Thin Mints, what the heck is wrong with you?
V: Nothing is wrong with me, because it is OBVIOUSLY Thin Mints. God, I'm naughty, but I'm not perverted. Runner up: Tagalongs. Great…now I'm fantasizing about them.
Q: Complete this quote: “My worst day writing is better than my best day __________.”
"My worst day writing is better than my best day CLEANING." Ugh. So Sisyphean. I find nothing about it rewarding. Nothing. And no one sends me any lovely fan mail about it either.
