On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Launch for
For Love or Money
By Tara Taylor Quinn

Welcome

Welcome to a brand new ttq series!! Family Secrets is the name of a reality cooking show. Contestants compete with secret family recipes. And every single book in the series has a hero or heroine effected by a family secret. This series is ttq intense emotional fiction at its best. (Or so my editor tells me!) It’s also romance with more…in all three of the first books in this series, secondary characters play an integral part in the story. It’s about family, after all. You can’t have family without…well…family members. And all three books also contain secret ingredients to spice up your recipes!

On tour with me this week, you’ll even get some of the complete recipes! Tried and true hits that have been in my family for thirty years or more. So join us…all week long. We have a Kindle Fire giveaway, books and gift card giveaways, and Harlequin My Rewards points worth a ton of free books of your choice!

She can’t afford to lose this…or him

There’s no way that struggling single mom Janie Young is going to lose Family Secrets. Not even to Dr. Burke Carter. The prize money and media exposure from the cooking-competition show will secure the future for her and her son, who has special needs. Sure, Burke is a talented chef with his own reasons to win, but he already has so much: wealth, a beautiful daughter, great looks…and definitely her attention. As their families become closer, Janie is beginning to care too much about him. But she can’t afford to get involved. Not when everything is riding on beating him.

Three New Releases in One Week! (Tara Taylor Quinn)

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Prism Tour Grand Finale for
Strangers in Paradise
By Heather Graham
&
Sheltered in His Arms
By Tara Taylor Quinn

Two bestselling stories about characters who lives don’t quite work out the way they thought they would. If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out now…

June 27th: Launch – Tour Welcome

Heather and Tara are very glad to have you join them as they celebrate their second Bestselling Author Collaboration! For one low price and under one cover, you get two full length novels by two bestselling authors.

June 28th: Lady Amber’s Reviews - Sheltered in His Arms

What I hope will really make you feel at home is the fact that all is not perfect in Shelter Valley. Just like anywhere in the world. We all have faults. And sometimes finding them in others is comforting, makes them more like us, allowing us to relate to them more easily. Sam Montford made a substantial mistake. But he’s ready to atone for that mistake and to share with Shelter Valley the good things he’s created in his life. He asks only to be forgiven.

June 29th: Books & Spoons - Strangers in Paradise

Strangers in Paradise takes place in the area that’s been my home my entire life—with all the good and the bad that come with living in such a paradise! I do love Miami, for all of her beauty, though I admit, of course, we have our problems. We’ve grown too big for our britches in my lifetime; we have crime, and we have craziness. But, still, there’s nothing like a sunset in the western sky, a sunrise, the Deco insanity of Miami Beach, and the beauty to be found in the coral shelves off our coastline. I am a diver—maybe that’s half the reason I love my area so much!

A SAFE PLACE

Alexi Jordan moves to her family’s crumbling Florida estate to start over. The house needs work, but that’s exactly what she’s looking for to get her life back on track after a disastrous marriage and an exhausting career. But after a series of unsettling phone calls and someone tampering with her lights, Alexi begins to fear that her home is far from a refuge.

Her neighbor, Rex Morrow, insists on protecting Alexi. She can’t deny that Rex is strong and sheltering, but the feelings she begins to develop for him are just as frightening as the series of scary events in her home. As the danger increases, Alexi must decide who poses the greater risk—her mysterious stalker, or the man who threatens to steal her heart…

FREE BONUS STORY INCLUDED IN THIS VOLUME!

Sheltered in His Arms by USA TODAY bestselling author Tara Taylor Quinn

Ten years after doing the unforgivable and leaving Shelter Valley, Sam Montford returns home. But forgiveness proves hard to find…particularly with the one woman he loved the most and hurt the deepest: his ex-wife, Cassie Tate.

Grand Finale and Giveaway! (Tara Taylor Quinn)

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Grand Finale for
His First Choice
By Tara Taylor Quinn

We hope you enjoyed the tour for TTQ’s newest addition to her Where Secrets are Safe series. If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out now…

Launch- Welcome to the Tour for His First Choice

I can promise you that if you join me in this journey, you’ll be welcomed with a sense of friendship and belonging. My posts are authentic and my books are heartfelt.

Becky on Books- Excerpt

JEM COULDN’T BELIEVE his eyes when he pulled into Uncle Bob’s on Saturday, glanced toward the beach and saw Lacey Hamilton in double. In both forms his fantasies had taken. One was drably overdressed, and the other rather undressed. He skipped over the version with long, tanned legs exposed, and stared at the one with loose black cotton shorts that hung to her knees.

deal sharing aunt- Spotlight

Night Owl Reviews- Interview

What is your latest book, His First Choice, about?

A twist I’ve never seen or read before in the romance world, but a story I believe needs to be told – one that speaks to the heart of true romance. Lacey is an ex-child star whose identical twin sister is still in Hollywood, a soap opera star. Though she and her sister have identical looks, her sister always shines brighter. Lacey has moved to Santa Raquel to be a family services social worker. As part of the ‘Where Secrets Are Safe’ high risk team, she meets Jem Winston, whose four year old son is showing signs of abuse. Jem’s story is a heart breaker. His First Choice delivers his happy ending.

Beck Valley Books- Not an Ordinary Book

This book is…not ordinary. I think it’s powerful. And emotionally compelling. And I hope so much you give it a chance. I can tell you why I think this, and hope this. I can describe Jem to you. He’s the hero of my heart.

underneath the covers- Imagine

Imagine, you’re identical twins. You both look exactly the same. And yet…she gets all the attention. Can you imagine how difficult that would be? You adore your sister. She’s sweet and kind and really good to you. But…wouldn’t that be hard? Always feeling second best, without even knowing why?

You can imagine…or you can pick up a copy of His First Choice and live the life with Lacey Hamilton – and her identical twin Kacey – as they figure it all out.

EskieMama Reads- Excerpt

He thought about telling his son they absolutely did not want to speak with the other woman. Telling him that for their own safety they had to stay away from her. But he couldn’t figure out how to do so when Levi had been told she was a friend. He’d let her take Levi alone to a playroom. He’d let her in their home, to see Levi’s room and most prized possessions.

Lady Amber’s Reviews- Coming in First

Kacey, my heroine, isn’t the middle child. As a matter of fact, she was born first. But she seems to slide into the background her entire life. She’s overshadowed by her identical twin sister.

I’m not a twin. Didn’t even have a sister – though I always wanted one desperately – but I understand those feelings of being ‘on stage’ (for her, literally) of being at the event, but not coming in first. Not shining the brightest.

Thoughts of a Blonde- Review

“A gut wrenching story that hooked me by the first page and had me feeling so many emotions throughout! I smiled at the adorableness of this little boy, I ached for the pain being felt, I felt anger, and most of all, I hoped for a happily ever after for these two special guys that wormed their way into my heart. Highly recommend!”

Harlie’s Books- Review

“I can not stress that while Ms. Quinn’s books have a message there is also some of the best love stories to date. Poignant, relatable and emotional. You can’t help but fall in love with both characters. Ms. Quinn tackles the hard issues but in the end, love always wins. Always…”

Brooke Blogs- I Am Honored

I’ve said since the moment I started writing for Harlequin that I write to touch women’s lives. To find them where they are and give them a heart-felt boost – whether it be by giving them a couple of hours of enjoyment, to replenish themselves, so they can step back up to their plates. Or, more often, to reach out to hurting hearts, to hold on gently, and walk with them back to the road to joy.

Wishful Endings- Not Your Ordinary Romance

My books are filled with hard topics, issues that face real women, without any sugarcoating to make them more palatable. I didn’t choose this route. The voices, the stories, the people that appear in my head, chose me.

Don’t forget to enter all the giveaways at the end as well!

The best decision they’ll ever make

Lacey Hamilton is used to living in the background. Overshadowed her entire life, she stepped out of the Hollywood limelight and into the role she’s meant to play: a counselor, part of the High Risk Team started by The Lemonade Stand women’s shelter in Santa Raquel.

Her caseload leads her to the doorstep of Jeremiah “Jem” Bridges to rescue a little boy. She’s not supposed to fall in love with the rugged construction worker and his adorable son. Love and duty, though, don’t always agree. Especially when a truth is uncovered that neither she nor Jem is prepared to face.

Reaching…Keep Reaching (Tara Taylor Quinn)

I write romance. Harlequin Romance. Because I spent my teen years and my early twenties, reading Harlequin books. Not just one of the series, though I had my favorites, but any of them I could get my hands on. Those books helped me through some very difficult times. They set my sights high for myself. Harlequin heroines have integrity. They are decent, bottom line kind, trying their best people. I measured myself against them.

Harlequin heroines always find love. No matter their mistakes, their adversities, they keep getting up every day. They keep trying. They keep having integrity and reaching out. They’re always reaching out – to the world, to those they care about, to a society that needs us all to think of each other. A society that can only be successful if we make choices that are decent. Kind.

Because Harlequin Books were such an important part of my life, because they were such a friend and helpmate, I wanted to spend my career putting more of them into the world – so that women who were reaching out like I was, would find the books reaching out to them. This past week I received the most incredible honor. I was told that my current Harlequin Series, Where Secrets Are Safe, is the basis for a scholarly paper being presented in Sheffield in the UK in June, as ‘an instrument of change.’ The theory is that the books reach out to women and help shape and mold society through them. In short, the books help women. I’ve never even been to the UK, but my books are there, reaching out to women.

So today I say to all of us, just keep reaching…
