So let's get started!
Meet the cast of Tasting New York, the second installment of the Tasting series.
My main character, Hope Fairbanks, is a young, inexperienced beauty from an affluent, controlling family.
Of course, the cover says it all where Hope is concerned.
Next, we get to meet Jonah Dempsey. Jonah was easy for me. Many romance novels look to big, brawny muscle men as their hero (nothing wrong with that, yum). I tend to fall on the side of the sultry, sexy side. Jonah is a NYC artist, and everything that entails. He resides in a loft, works all night, and could care less what other people think. He also carries a heavy burden, a secret.
There always has to be trouble maker. Tasting New York has a couple. Here, we meet Kym Yoshida. She's a jealous, Kym. Gorgeous, but green with envy.
Moving on to the next trouble maker, Perry. He was a fun character to play with. I don't know why I enjoy writing the characters that everyone loves to hate, but alas, I do. Perry needs to pack up his Bentley and move on with Brittney, or Becky, or Bethany... whatever her name is. ;-)
When reading Tasting New York, you'll find that Hope has difficulty cutting the daddy strings. Meet Mr. Fairbanks, the tyrant of Fairbanks International.
Finally, who couldn't use a good dose of a controlling, belittling mother? The answer is Hope... I introduce you to the nagging Claudia Fairbanks.
The cast of Tasting New York is an emotional, heart felt, and sexy ensemble. It is live right now in The Hot Summer Nights anthology, along with nine other stories for a mere .99 cents!

You can also read Tasting Texas (the Tasting series book one) and get to know Beth Garrett, Eric Alexander (who also makes in appearance in Tasting New York), and the redneck romeo Wren! You won't be disappointed!

Kimmie, I'm always suspicious of a writer who says he/she doesn't have time or inclination to read. Good for you.ReplyDelete
Hi Caroline! I couldn't agree more. I'd lose my mind if I didn't give it some downtime with a good read. :-)Delete
Yes! Sexy and sultry for me too. Loved Jonah's character. Yum.ReplyDelete
He was such a favorite character for me. And I knew his celebrity inspiration immediately. I do believe it paid off! ;-)Delete
Clever idea, Kimmie. Enjoyed it very much. Btw, love your casting.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Joan. It can't wait to do it again. It was a lot of fun!Delete
