The tension is incredible. The crowds are pushing at the ropes that hold them back. Movie stars pass before them on the red carpet, dressed to kill and wearing jewelry so valuable it's incredible. The stars are here in full force to celebrate the coming release of Wendi Zwaduk's new book, Right Where I Need To Be.
They are coming into the Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, for the Golden Globe awards. This year they have a special category for Best Romance.
Look Orlando Bloom, Liv Tyler, Johnny Depp, Beyonce, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Wow!
Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Anniston, and numerous other celebrities walk into the lavish and gala affair.
They are invited to the after award party. Now that is gonna rock!
The menu is amazing. There are several entres offered; tender porterhouse steak and potatoes, lobster newberg, fresh from Alaska, King Crab legs, several gourmet chicken dishes, and even Hallibut poached with a fresh herb sauce. Side dishes from Harvard beets, to fresh crisp asparagus tips, line the tables. And the deserts, sinful! Who knew chocolate cake could be made in so many ways! And, of course, bottles of blush wine stand ready to flow.
Mary, Lyn and Sharon wait by the entrance to the Hotel, dressed to the nines. Sharon in an off the shoulder white, sequined, Versace, Lyn in a gorgeous black sequined, form fitting dress by Stella McCartney
and Mary, always the one to laugh at fashion is now dressed in a short trendy, black and pink Betsy Johnson number. But the one who kills us all in the dress department is our lovely Wendi in a red low shoulder, sequined gown by Ralph Lauren.
The hostesses are beaming and enjoying the taste of the limelight. Star struck, Oliver keeps pulling at the collar of his crisp white shirt. He looks so sexy in a tuxedo.
He holds a dozen lovely roses.
"Wendi may I escort you down the red carpet." His hooded eyes devour Wendi. Sharon kicks him and he perks up.
Finally everyone is seated. The nominees for best New Romance are read. "And the winner is Wendi Zwaduk!" The audience breaks into thunderous applause as Wendi makes her way to the microphone. "Thank you, thank you all." She finishes her short comments and since she is the last winner after Avatar, everyone makes their way to the dining area.
Sharon stands after everyone is seated. "We'd like you to join us in welcoming Wendi to our blogspot, please feel free to comment. And for a chance to win a download of Wendi's book as soon as it's released , can you name the three stooges - and remember there were more than three of them over their careers.
Wendi always dreamed of writing the stories in her head. Tall, dark, and handsome heroes are her favourites, as long as he has an independent woman keeping him in line. He'd better be willing to stand up to the baddie while looking hot. Oh, and if he can drive a controlled slide, even better.
She earned a BA in education at Kent State University and currently holds a Masters in Education with Nova Southeastern University. She taught art in a high school for four years until she realized she preferred to draw and paint--alone.She loves NASCAR, romance, books in general, Ohio farmland, dirt racing, and her menagerie of animals. Cats are her favorites, but she's a sucker for basset hounds and German shepherds.
She has one novel coming soon from the Wild Rose Press, entitled, Right Where I Need to Be and a short story coming soon from Total E Bound, called Learning How to Bend. She's also written short stories for Long and Short of It Reviews."
Right Where I Need to Be - Coming May 7th, 2010 from the Wild Rose Press!
Learning How to Bend - Coming Soon from Total-E-Bound!
Right Where I Need to Be
Sometimes the love of your life isn’t the one you expect, but he’s the one you need.
Cass Jenson needs an actor for her made for TV movie. The previous actor dropped out, leaving her stranded.. Her savior shows up looking sinfully sexy and totally right for the part, but what part is she auditioning him for? Her movie or her bed?
Logan Malone needs an acting job and fast. With his string of broken hearts, his professional life lies in shambles. To resurrect his career, he must audition for a television role which could be the job of a lifetime. That is, if he can work with distraction and Cass is a major distraction with a heart of gold. Is their budding relationship enough to survive separation, lies, and a couple zany fans?
Here is a short excerpt:
Logan’s hand caressed her shoulder.
“Can I help you finish? You and your friend should be sipping margaritas and ordering the lawn boy around, not sweating yourselves to death.”
She raised her brows. “You thought being a movie star meant you were entitled, that’s what.”
A wolfish grin curled his lips. Flecks of gold lit his hazel eyes, sending a fresh rush of lust to her
core. He leaned in very close to her ear. “Maybe.”
She took a fortifying breath and fought the urge to taste him. Damn that cologne. Her heart
skipped a beat. She donned her best sultry smile.
Two could play his game. “Really?”
He nodded. She licked her dry lips. How could one man be so irritating and damn sexy at the same time? She scooted close enough so her bare knee brushed against his denim-clad thigh.
Firm muscles without an ounce of fat. Ooh. “Do you want to explore?”
Cass took his hand, teasing his palm with her fingers and caressing the creases in his skin. His
voice went from friendly to sexy in an instant, making her thighs quiver with excitement. “Cass.”
“Yes.” She bit her bottom lip and filled his hand. “Okay. Explore to your little heart’s content.”
His eyes opened wide before he scrunched his brows. “Keys?”
Cass grinned. “Yep.”
His blank expression turned into a frown. “For what?”
She patted his thigh and stood up. “The mower. Tell me when you finish. I’ve got an acre in the back that’s got your name on it.”
