Resolutions for 2013 by Nona Raines!

Thanks so much, Holly, for letting me appear today at Reading with Holly!
New Year's Day is almost upon us and many of us are ready to make our resolutions for 2013. I wonder how many of us stick to them, lol? I know I haven't been too successful with mine. But the wonderful thing about a new year is the fact that it a chance to start over—the mistakes of the past can be swept aside and we can have a fresh start.
It's not always the New Year that gives us the desire to start fresh. Sometimes it's an incident in our own lives that gives us the kick in the pants we need to make a change. This is especially true if some of our old habits are detrimental and self-defeating.
This is true for Kim Hansen, the heroine of my erotic romance Her Perfect Man. She's in a rut. She's just been dumped (again) by a guy she'd hoped to make her boyfriend; she's stuck in a job she dislikes; and even her cat won't show her respect.  She's not happy with her life, but d…

Interview with Nona Raines, author of Take This Man!

Holly:Hi Nona! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Nona Raines: Sure thing! I'm a former librarian who's been a reader all my life. I've also been a writer most of my life (though an unpublished one until recently). Having my books published has been the culmination of a dream.
Holly:Can you tell us a little bit about your book Take This Man?
Nona Raines: This book is the second in The Man series and features Adam Vostek, who was introduced as a supporting character in my first book One Good Man. He's still carrying a torch for a woman who left town two years ago. He's angry that she left, but he also feels guilty because he knows he pushed her away.
Here's a blurb:
The biggest mistake of Elyse Zemanski's life was falling in love with Adam. When a night of sexual fantasy went too far, she was crushed and couldn't leave town fast enough.

The biggest mistake of Adam Vostek's life was letting Elyse go. He'd been afraid of the love she promise…

Excerpt:I’d been staring at the vast body of water surrounding the ship when I was startled to find a woman, heavy with child standing by my side. She wore a red gown that gathered beneath her ample breasts. The gown fell freely, billowing against her in the brisk sea air. Her red hair hung in two braids threaded with crimson leather. Upon turning her head, small red j…

Though she should run away without delay, the night carried the possibility of bringing her fantasies to fruition. In this very room, the man she’d pined for, the one she’d yearned to have, stared at her with hunger. Thomas wanted to make love—with her, of all people.

Who would’ve guessed it?

“So, Eleanor, tell me, where are you from?” He grabbed the wine, a brow raised as he grabbed the corkscrew to open the bottle. He studied the object, flipping it in his hands, and then put the sharp, twisty blade in the cork.

She could almost hear his thought process as he compared the modern version to the ones they were familiar with. He tossed a smile over his shoulder and poured two glasses. Giving one to her, he motioned for her to sit down on the couch. Once she did so, he sat so close beside her that their legs touched. The heat from his body pressing against h…
