With: Marissa Clarke
I am so excited to be featured on Just Contemporary Romance today because this is the release day for my debut adult contemporary romance, Sleeping with the Boss. I'm also thrilled to a part of second release date for Entangled Publishing's new Lovestruck imprint.
At its heart, the Lovestruck line centers around finding love when you least expect it. In the case of Sleeping with the Boss, the heroine, Claire Maddox, is only looking to get to her temp job on time so she can earn some cash before moving away to Egypt. The last thing she's expecting right before she leaves the country is love. Especially with one of the owners of the company she's working for... and most especially not resulting from an incident involving a ripped skirt in the elevator.
I've always been a sucker for the "meet cute," so writing for the Entangled Lovestruck line is a blast. So is being here today. Thanks for having me, Maureen.
To celebrate release day, there is a Rafflecopter giveaway at the bottom of the post for a $10 gift card to Amazon or Barnes and Noble!
Sleeping with the Boss
by Marissa Clarke
Seducing the enemy has never been so tempting...
For the last five years, bookish Claire Williams has been living for the dying. Now that her stint as caretaker is over, she’s off to see the world. She needs quick cash first, so a temp job at Anderson Auctions seems perfect, especially with the unexpected benefits, including the hottest man she’s ever laid eyes—or hands—on.
Former Marine William Anderson has been burned one time too many. His military training makes him the perfect man to flush out the spy undercutting his family business, but no amount of training can prepare him for the kind of undercover work he’ll have to do when the sexy new temp is implicated. Desire lands them in bed...but duty may cost him his heart.
What others are saying:
"Will Anderson can be my boss any day. Marissa Clarke is a master at mixing sexy and mystery." - Jennifer L. Armentrout, # 1 New York Times bestselling author
"Sexy, smart, fun! A fabulous new voice in contemporary romance!" - Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author
“Every negotiation should be launched with a heavy make-out session in the back of the company limousine. Don’t you agree?” Will held up his glass and clinked it against hers.
“Well.” She tilted her head and pretended to consider his question seriously. “It would depend who was on the project team, because if you’re talking about that big guy from accounting who wears the bow ties, that’s a deal-killer for me.”
“For me, too. He’s not my type.”
Giggling, and feeling as bubbly as the champagne, she leaned so close their noses bumped. “I believe we should read back the minutes from our meeting so far.”
With a grin, he put both of their glasses in the cup holders in his door. “You have the floor, Miss Maddox.”
“It began something like this,” she said against his lips.
