Walk Of Fame

Walk Of Fame, feeling flirty

I love scenes that show a fun side to characters. One making the other a little crazy. One saying something to get under the other’s skin. I’ve always been a big fan of romantic comedy, so the funny scenes always get to me. And who doesn’t like making a man cringe, just a little!

“I can’t take you in there looking like this. Every man in the county will be trying to take you home.”

“I’m coming back here with you, Dillon. No one else.”

“Hell, it doesn’t even have to do with that. Are you wearing underwear?”

She rolled her eyes at him.

“This isn’t that fancy of a party. I think you’ll be uncomfortable.”

Katherine took a deep breath and had to admit he was a little right. Just walking out of the bedroom had her slightly on edge. If it was just her and Dillon, maybe. But knowing how many other people would be there… She needed to dial back the Kate Maddox and be more Katherine Price.

“You’re right,” she confessed. “I always feel uncomfortable in this dress.”

“Don’t get me wrong. It’s a hell of a dress. But I can’t walk in there with you looking like that.”

Katherine grinned at the heated look in his eyes then went to change into the other dress she packed.

In ten minutes, she was back in the living room in a handkerchief dress that hugged her top half and flared out on the bottom. The greens, blues, and purples swirled artistically and hid all the parts of her figure she didn’t like. The high neck and capped sleeves helped add to the modesty of the dress, until you looked closely and realized the top layer of the dress was sheer.

“Do you own anything that doesn’t make me want to strip you naked and skip the party?”

Katherine grinned. “I’m not sure. I was wearing jeans when we met.”

Walk Of Fame, release day

Walk Of FameIt’s always exciting for me to share a release with you. When I first thought about writing this series, Walk Of Fame was one of the first books I had in my mind. I loved the idea of a country star who ended up at Amavita Estates and fell in love with one of the cousins.

Katherine was a character I fell in love with immediately. She needed someone who would take care of her and let her be independent. Dillon (whose name was originally going to be Jackson, but I had too many J names) was the man for the job!

Excerpt from Walk Of Fame

The crowd moved on without her, and those girls, women really, left, too. She couldn’t explain why she felt possessive of him when she heard them talking about the hot guy at the pinot station. They obviously went on the tour already and made a second trip so they could see him. Katherine made sure they overheard her comment about being at his house the night before for dinner.

Yeah, she had her own jealous side.

“I thought you’d want to hang around my brother. He’s probably closer to your age.”

Katherine grinned at Dillon and shrugged. “I’d guess, but I’ve always had a thing for older men. Especially older men who know how to make a woman feel good.”

Dillon stepped closer to her, turning his body so they were in perfect alignment. “How do you know my brother can’t take care of a woman?”

She cocked an eyebrow at him. “Are you trying to get me to go with him? Because I don’t tend to stay where I’m not wanted.”

She moved to go around him and was rewarded by a large hand low on her belly. His bicep rested against her breast, his side pressed against hers. He shifted, barely enough to make a difference, but it put his lips in contact with the shell of her ear.

“He wasn’t in that hotel room when you screamed loud enough to wake the neighbors. That was all me, honey.”

Walk Of Fame, first kiss

Walk Of FameEvery first kiss is just a little different. When I first thought of this book, I had a very different first kiss in mind. But when I sat down to write, I knew the way they met wasn’t right. So I changed it. And you get to read it now. I’d love to know what you think!

Excerpt from Walk Of Fame

Dillon Young took a drink from his beer and looked around the bar. He sighed and tipped the bottle up. It was stupid to think he could show up on a Thursday night and find someone to go home with.

Dammit.

Dillon nodded to the bartender and got up. He was halfway to the door when it opened and she walked in.

Dillon stopped in the middle of the damn room and watched her. Jeans hugged her curves, a flimsy shirt hanging off one of her shoulders. Her light brown hair drifted behind her as her eyes scanned the bar. When they landed on his, they scanned his body as her lips curled up.

“Hey,” she said.

“Hi.”

“Are you leaving?”

He shrugged. “I was.”

“And now?”

He grinned. “It depends on if you’re staying.”

She looked around then shook her head. “I could go.”

Dillon put his hand on her lower back and guided her out the door. As soon as it swung closed behind them, he pressed her back against the wall and sealed his lips to hers.

She knew the score, but he wanted to make sure she understood the only reason she was leaving the bar with him was so they could make each other feel good. It wouldn’t go anywhere beyond the night.

He thrust his tongue between her lips and ground his hips against hers, letting her feel the way she already affected him. She whimpered and clawed at him, trying to fucking climb him. He didn’t mind helping her at all, scooping her up so she could wrap her long legs around his waist. God he loved a woman who could handle how big he was. When she hooked her heels together, he groaned.

Fuck yeah.

Walk Of Fame, being famous

Walk Of FameI rarely write about people who are rich or famous. I love to write about ordinary people, but once in a while, a wealthy character pops into my head and refuses to be ignored. Katherine put her foot down and told me I had to write her story.

Being famous wasn’t always easy for Katherine. When she’s on stage, she’s someone else, complete with a new name and look. But Katherine is just an ordinary person. Someone who needs people in her corner. People like Dillon and the rest of his family.

Excerpt from Walk Of Fame

The vineyard had a buzz that was different from the night before. A steady hum that usually only came with lots of people. Fear welled up inside her knowing she’d been found out. Laughter rang out from nearby. Too near.

Katherine needed to get away.

“Katherine!” a voice said in the distance.

She turned and saw someone waving to her. Andie. Dillon’s sister. The woman who told her she could stay at his house.

And she called her Katherine.

Katherine walked closer, knowing she could get information out of Andie and be gone before anyone knew she was there.

“Are you joining a tour?” Andie asked.

Shit.

“Tour?”

“Yeah. I figured Dillon would have mentioned it. We’re offering tours through the vineyard today. We’ve never done it before. Kristen thought it would be different to show visitors what the grapes look like on the vine and be able to taste them right out here in the field. It’s going well so far.”

“Oh, tour! Yeah, he mentioned it. I completely forgot though. It’s really noisy out here today.”

Andie chuckled. “Yeah, people are having fun. We didn’t expect the crowds we’re getting, but it’s been great for us. Kristen estimated each tour would be about fifteen people, but they’re closer to thirty. It’s been a busy morning.”

“That makes sense,” Katherine said, almost to herself.

“Why don’t you wait here with me and join the next tour. It should be here soon.”

Katherine nodded. “I think I will. Thanks. I was heading that way anyway. Thought I might catch Dillon.”

Andie grinned. “I knew you two would get along. Sorry for kind of tricking you, though. He was pretty pissed off at me about that.”

Katherine shook her head. “It’s fine. I certainly didn’t expect to find someone else there, but Dillon is a very considerate host.”

“My big brother definitely has his good points. Has he cooked for you yet? He’s a really good cook.”

“Andie, are you trying to hook us up?”

She shook her head. “You two already did that.”

“But you didn’t know that when I got here.”

Andie sighed. “No, I didn’t. Dillon needs to chill out some. He’s wound pretty tight and we all worry about him. He needs to get laid.”

Katherine choked out a laugh. If Andie only knew just how much Dillon got laid a few nights ago, she wouldn’t worry so much about her brother. Plus, he was clearly very skilled, which meant he wasn’t a novice when it came to women.

Katherine started to respond, but voices grew louder, approaching them. She turned and saw a very attractive guy leading the way straight toward her.

Andie laughed and leaned in. “That’s my brother, Sean. This will be the perfect tour for you to join.”

Katherine wasn’t sure what she meant by that, and wasn’t sure she wanted to know.

Introducing Walk Of Fame

Walk Of FameEvery time I start a new book, I smile. A whole new story to share, a whole new love to explore, a whole new adventure to go on. I love it. And then I get to share it with you!

The next Raise A Glass story is Walk Of Fame. Country superstar, Kate Maddox, finds herself at Amavita Estates when she decides to disappear. Dressed as herself, Katherine Price, she blends in with the rest of the guests.

Except in Dillon’s eyes.

Dillon and Katherine had one night together, and when she shows up on his doorstep, he finds himself not unhappy to see her again.

Excerpt from Walk Of Fame

She turned and started to walk away without another word. Dillon stood watching her for a few moments, frozen in place and trying to figure out what he should do.

Before his brain fully kicked in he called out to her, “Are you seriously just walking away? You weren’t here looking for me?”

She turned, her eyes sliding down him. He wasn’t amused by the disinterested look in her eyes. There wasn’t even a glimmer of recognition.

Wow. And he thought their night was pretty fucking fabulous. Nice to see she didn’t feel the same.

“I’m sorry,” she said, shaking her head and starting to walk away. “I don’t think we know each other.”

Dillon chuckled to himself. “I might not have told you my name last night, but I think I know you pretty damn well.”

She paused in her walk, and he wondered if she would turn and come back or simply keep walking. She seemed to be warring with herself. Finally she threw back over her shoulder, “Where did we meet?”

Dillon’s eyebrows rose and an amused grin curled his lips. “Matty’s in Ithaca. Before you even got a drink, we walked out the door. We went to your hotel next door, and, just in case you forgot, you came at least ten times in the three times we had sex.”

Her gasp was just as throaty as the night before and his cock took notice. He happily would have her naked and screaming his name this time, but he wasn’t sure how he felt about his one night stand following him home.

Even if a part of him was impressed.
