Weekend Writing Warriors #28!

Good morning, everyone! Happy Sunday! Is there anything more awesome in an author's life than getting THAT email? The one saying, 'We love the story line, we love the characters. We. Want. This.'? Well, I'm thrilled to report that I received one of those emails this week. :D The story is called Crossing the Line and it's based on a true story. Sadly, the steamy stuff is embellished. A lot. But a girl can dream.

Here's the blurb:

Madison Kelly is an erotic romance author from Canada on her way to her first ever writing conference. Across the border. A trunk full of dirty books and dildos proves enough to amp up her nerves and make her lips flap faster than the maple leaf flag.
But she's not going anywhere until George Petropoulos gives the go-ahead.
The Greek god of a border guard has something other than national security in mind when he detains this particular citizen. He can’t help but be charmed by the juxtaposition between her stammering blushes and the racy books she writes.
A hot and heavy interrogation brings out her inner sex goddess, one that she’s been hiding in the pages of her books, and leaves them both wanting more. But will they be brave enough to cross the line again? 

And here's an excerpt!  

“Citizenship?” he asked.
She cocked her head to the side and studied him. Smooth, straight nose with a slight bump on the bridge. Eyelashes that made her ache with envy. Wavy jet-black hair that begged a girl to get all tangled up in. “Hmmm, I would guess either Greek or Spanish.”
“I meant you.”
Madison frowned.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors and have a fantastic day! :)
