Jennifer Probst Excerpt: Any Time, Any Place

Jennifer Probst

Any Time, Any Place by Jennifer Probst

When she was a teen, Raven Bella Stratton’s father was killed in a horrible car crash. The bigger shock was the discovery of a woman with him—Diana Pierce—and their two fully packed suitcases with airline tickets to Paris. Devastated by her father’s betrayal, Raven went to live with her aunt, never truly overcoming the traumatic event. When she discovers that the mysterious woman had a family with a husband and three boys, Raven vows to leave the memory of her father behind.

Until Dalton Pierce visits one night and suddenly her past challenges her future...

Leaving his life in California behind to run Pierce Construction with his two older brothers, Dalton Pierce has enjoyed returning home and studying his passion of woodworking. But when he visits the local bar with his brothers one evening, he’s immediately drawn to the smart-mouthed, badass, sexy bartender who sets his body on fire. Unfortunately, she doesn’t seem as intrigued by him, and his multiple advances are met with rejection. When he offers to restore the bar back to its original glory, he begins to work with her on a daily basis, and falls harder. His plan of seduction slowly weaves a web around them both, until they are caught up in the spell. But Dalton doesn’t know the secret that can either destroy them both...or finally mend two broken hearts.

Her breath came in short bursts from the high of their banter. The warm air spun around her like wispy cotton, lending to the intimate atmosphere. God, why did she feel on the verge of some sexual, delicious combustion? The man was dangerous as hell. She needed to stay away from him.

He nodded.

 “Good. I can load them in my truck tomorrow and bring them over before you open.”

“Thanks.”

Talk Nerdy to Me: Top 5 Nerds in Romance (and Why We Love Them)

Searching for Always by Jennifer Probst

Today we're thrilled to welcome Jennifer Probst to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Jennifer's latest book, Searching for Always is the fourth book in her matchmaking Searching For series that sees two opposites attracting. Many times that opposites attract trope is used between a nerd and a “popular guy or girl”—to use high school terminology. Jennifer has written that story too featuring the nerd closest to her heart Nate Ellison Raymond Dunkle (yes, his initials spell N.E.R.D.) in Searching for Perfect. Jennifer is here to talk about the glorious appeal of the nerd, and why we all need one in our lives! Thanks, Jennifer!

It's June and I'm ready! For what, you ask?

The end of school. The end of rushing out in the morning with the kids, and making lunches, and missing buses. I'm ready to roll out of bed when I want to, cook a real breakfast other than frozen waffles, and spend some well needed time reading a book on the back deck, cocktail in one hand, while the sun beams bright and hot in the sky.

Searching for Someday: Exclusive Excerpt, Part 1

Jennifer Probst

Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst

In charming Verily, New York, Kate Seymour has a smashing success with Kinnections, the matchmaking service she owns with her two best girlfriends. But Kate’s more than a savvy businesswoman: She’s gifted with a secret power, a jolting touch that signals when love’s magic is at work. It rocked her when she picked up a strange volume of love spells in the town’s used bookstore . . . and it zapped her again when she encountered Slade Montgomery, the hot-tempered—and hot-bodied— divorce lawyer who storms into Kinnections demanding proof that playing Cupid won’t destroy his vulnerable sister, Kate’s newest client. The only way to convince this cynic that she’s no fraud, and that love is no mirage, is for Kate to meet his audacious challenge: find him his dream woman. Can Kate keep their relationship strictly business when her electrifying attraction nearly knocked her off her feet? Or has the matchmaker finally met her match?

He was going to strangle her. Slade kept a tight grip on his calm which shook ferociously under the storm that was Kate Seymour. He ducked his head and concentrated on his meal in order to give him a few minutes to recollect his sanity. When he called her, he realized he was taking a big chance but saw no other options. He needed a date, and she owed him. With their business relationship, he’d almost be guaranteed she’d go along with the charade without a hitch. Oh, she went along alright. He was in a shit storm of trouble on Monday.

She completely charmed everyone at the table. She wielded her razor wit and sarcasm with a polished edge of humor that his bosses adored. The women who initially stared with suspicion now seemed open and laughing. She encouraged them to ignore the calories and drink with her, and now Slade sat at a table with slightly intoxicated women. He worried Bob and Travis may think she pushed too far, but they seemed amused and delighted by their wives’ too-loud conversation and revelry.

Author Jennifer Probst on Complete Opposites in Romance

Today we welcome Jennifer Probst to Heroes and Heartbreakers to discuss the very real adage that “opposites attract.” Jennifer’s The Marriage Bargain has taken readers by storm, landing on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal’s bestseller lists, with a print version coming soon. 

Thanks for joining us, Jennifer!

Confession time.

I adore romance novels where the main hero and heroine are complete opposites. Immediately, a thrill launches through me and in a capable writer’s hands, I become putty. There is something exciting about watching two people who have nothing in common fight the journey of a happily ever after. The harder the fight, the more satisfaction I get in the end. The strong ones not only resist the burgeoning physical attraction, but also reach deep and fight back with their minds, heart, and soul. I secretly know it will all end well, but watching the journey play out brings some of the most satisfying romance novels on the page.
