ON THE 10th DAY OF CHRISTMAS - PAMELA STONE
So a big blog and contest welcome to new Harlequin American author, Pam Stone!
A little about Pam:
Writing is pure escapism. Childhood imaginary friends developed into teenage fantasies. Later as a mother of two young, rambunctious sons, I began writing to keep in touch with the adult world; at least it was worth a shot. I continued writing as a method to wind down in the evenings from long, exhausting days spent in Corporate America. Anybody notice a pattern here? Not enough adult socialization – write. People overload – write. Either way, writing keeps me sane. Cheaper than a therapist and tons more fun.
I still reside in Texas with my childhood sweetheart and husband of; well we won’t mention how many years. In my spare time I enjoy traveling. From Hawaii, to California, to Florida, to the Caribbean, to Galveston, Texas. If there’s a beach, I’m there. I also love spending time with friends and family, especially three adorable grandkids. I love writing romance and sold my first novel, Last Resort: Marriage, to Harlequin American on Friday the 13th, June 2008. How’s that for luck!
And even more exciting, Harlequin American has bought my second book, due out in 2011. WooHoo!
Desperate times call for a quickie wedding? And desperation is the only reason Charlotte Harrington would even consider marrying local playboy, Aaron Brody. Even if he is the most irresistible man she’s ever laid eyes on.
Charlie’s proposition could be a win-win for both of them. Aaron keeps his charter business afloat and the gorgeous, cool-as-ice hotel heiress keeps her grandfather from selling her hotel out from under her. Besides, it’s temporary.
It was supposed to be strictly a business arrangement. Falling in love with her husband wasn’t part of the deal. So when the time comes, will Charlie be able to just shake hands with Aaron and part ways forever?
