Pink Heart Picks February - Lights...Camera...Discuss!
Did you notice the play on words in the blog title? Not very subtle, am I? This month's title was Nikki Logan's debut Lights...Camera...Kiss the Boss!
Now Ava is at Daniel's mercy...she has to become presenter of a TV show rather than staying behind the scenes, and if she doesn't, she'll be in breach of contract. Dan's job's on the line too, but convincing Ava to do it is the least of his worries. Pressure from above means using tactics he doesn't like...and keeping it from Ava. It means pairing her with a screen-partner with a womanizing reputation (and let me say, he was one of my favourite characters in the book. Love it when things are so not what they seem). It means having feelings for her but not acting on them. For Ava, it means still loving Daniel even when things go wrong. Then it means being very, very angry with him when the truth behind it all comes out.
It all culminates in an awards show surprise that adds that touch of fantasy and glamour and a lot of Romance. I don't want to say more and be too spoilery if you haven't read it, but we all know that when a man has to choose between whatever his goal was and love, and he does it publicly, it's something (remember Notting Hill and the press conference? Grand gesture!).
So what did you all think? I'm really looking forward to discussing it with you!
And now...I also have to announce the March pick!
You can get it through e-harlequin now in either print or e-book, (and you can browse the book first if you like!) and it releases on March 16 in stores.
