Jenn LeBlanc ~ June 12, 2016

graceJenn LeBlanc will read from her novel The Trouble with Grace.

She had no idea what passion was,

Until she saw them…

Lady Alain needs a husband, and Quintin Wyntor will do just fine.

She will offer him a mutual agreement of respect and independence—

As long as he never visits her bed to claim his marital rights.

But seeing him with a man, with Calder, changes it all.

For better—and for worse.

Passion stirred.

Desire ignited.

And yet, she still never wants to touch or be touched.

But Quinn’s heart is shattered when his lover walks away so he decides to explore his feelings for Celeste to ease his broken heart.

In one unchecked moment of passion, mutual need spins out of control and bringing Calder home now may just be impossible.

Will Celeste give in to what Quinn wants for her?

Or will she stand her ground and hope they find another way…ME20150311

Born and raised in beautiful Colorado and never wanting to leave–very nearly with a camera in hand–Jenn LeBlanc is currently on an extended vacation to Los Angeles.

She started her own family, went to college, started a business objectifying all the beautiful people and tried to get used to humidity wrecking havoc with her hair. Texting complete conversations using only RuPaul’s Drag Race gifs, and totally beating the daylights out of a ninja (with a camera in hand of course) are her prized talents.

From the realization that someone ELSE would be shooting the cover of HER book her control-freak took over. What started as an easy cover shoot ballooned into this ground-breaking new kind of media, designed specifically for digital book readers: The Illustrated Romance. The images from her book started a ruckus, and from there #StudioSmexy was born. She’s since shot over 1,000 romance novel covers and currently shoot custom images for very special clients.

You can find her on Twitter and Facebook sharing eye candy (NSFW) and being a total rock star. www.jennleblanc.com

beyond the stars

Stacy Wise will read from her novel Beyond the Stars.

Most girls would kill for the opportunity to work for Jack McAlister, Hollywood’s hottest actor, but twenty-one-year-old Jessica Beckett is ready to kick him out of her red Ford Fiesta and never look back. She should be spending her junior year in France, eating pastries and sharpening her foreign language skills. Instead she’s reluctantly working as Jack’s personal assistant, thanks to her powerhouse talent agent aunt.

Jack is private, prickly, and downright condescending. Jessica pushes his buttons—she’s not the type of girl to swoon over celebrity heartthrobs, precisely why her aunt thought she’d be perfect for the job—and Jack pushes right back.

But as she begins to peel away his layers, Jessica is shocked to find she craves her boss’s easy smile and sexy blue eyes. The problem is, so does the entire female population. And what started out as the job from hell soon has Jess wondering if a guy like Jack could ever find love with a regular girl like her.
