Synopsis

The decision that tore them apart...
Former hopeless romantic, Mia Trent, is crushed when the love of her life, Nate McArthur, reveals that he doesn’t want to get married—or have children. But it’s too late. Mia is already pregnant and her dream of “happily ever after” is sharply put to an end when she decides to keep her pregnancy a secret, refusing to force him into a life he doesn’t want.
The compromise that made them a family...
Five years later, Mia must reach out to Nate for help or risk losing her home and shelter for their son. Stunned and outraged by the sudden news of his child, Nate proposes a compromise: give him the summer to get to know his son and he’ll save her home. Yet with Mia back in his life, Nate isn't willing to lose her—or their son—again. What starts off as a temporary arrangement soon becomes a chance at rediscovery and becoming a family. Only Nate must convince his jaded dreamer that his love for her is true…and will last now and forever.

EXCERPT:


As she rinsed the last dish, Mia jumped when strong arms suddenly wrapped around her middle.
“Sorry,” Nate whispered into her ear. “I didn’t mean to scare you. I thought you heard me.”
She turned off the running water and leaned against him. “No, I was lost in my head. What did you say?”
Nate leaned down and kissed her on the back of her neck. Mia shivered. No matter where or how many, his kiss always left her lightheaded.
“I asked what’s for dessert,” he repeated, kissing her again.
Mia turned in his arms, laughing. “That’s so cliché, you know.”
“What do you mean?” he asked with mock disbelief.
She rolled her eyes. “Oh, please. You say ‘what’s for dessert’ then I say something ordinary and then you say something cheesy like wanting me for dessert.”
He looked down at her, thoughtful. “Hmm, that does sound like something I’d say. But this hungry man could actually still eat.”
“Oh,” Mia said, a little embarrassed by her rash assumption. He was serious. Nate wasn’t a small guy and could honestly still be hungry. “Well…” she began lamely, “I don’t have anything else to feed you.”
Nate’s eyes sparkled. “Yeah, you do,” he whispered. He placed his hands on the counter to either side of her, trapping her between his solid frame and the sink. “I said I could still eat.”
Mia paused, confused. Then she laughed, recognizing the heated suggestion in his eyes. “You’re bad,” she murmured, shoving at his hard chest.
He leaned in closer, his lips only a breath away from hers. “And you like it.”

Top 10 Fairytale Couples + GIVEAWAY
By Lena Hart

I love a great love story. And I have to admit many of the ones I love are the classic fairytale kind.  They all get their “happy ever after” but not without conflict and strife. As a writer, I’m fascinated at how these stories can span generations and still have the same effect. Below is a list of my own personal favorite fairytale couples. They not only touched my heart but they inspire my writing.

10. Carl and Ellie, UP
9. Mulan and Li Shang, MULAN
8. Pocahontas and John (Yes, both Johns J), POCAHONTAS
7. Jane and Tarzan, TARZAN
6. Fiona and Shrek, SHREK
5. Jasmine and Aladdin, ALADDIN
4. Simba and Nala, THE LION KING
3. Ariel and Eric, THE LITTLE MERMAID
2. Belle and Beast, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
1. Tiana and Prince Naveen, PRINCESS AND THE FROG

You asked: Who’s your favorite fairytale couple?

I love Enchanted with Patrick Dempsey as Robert and Amy Adams as Princess Giselle! This a wonderful romantic comedy based on Sleeping Beauty. I've watched it many times and it still tugs my heart strings along with lots of laughter. I highly recommend you watch it. It's a definite HEA! :-)

Thanks for the opportunity!

Thanks Black Lion Tours for a fun run and a great tour! It was an interesting first time experience and I can't believe we've come to the end.

I have always loved "Beauty and the Beast" that fairy tale is the most one closest to me. I have always had a book in my hand, just like Belle. I also can walk and read too! ;)

Lindsey V. said...

Enchanted is great, I agree, but I also really love Anastasia and Tangled.

Thank you so much for the post and giveaways! I'd love the chance to win the Rafflecopter or one of the secret prizes, so fingers crossed. ;-)
