Spotlight & Giveaway: Too Wild to Tame by Tessa Bailey

Today, HJ is pleased to share with you Tessa Bailey’s new release: Too Wild to Tame

Spotlight&Giveaway

Sometimes you just can’t resist playing with fire . . .

 
too-wild-to-tameBy day, Aaron Clarkson suits up, shakes hands, and acts the perfect gentleman. But at night, behind bedroom doors, the tie comes off and the real Aaron comes out to play. Mixing business with pleasure got him fired, so Aaron knows that if he wants to work for the country’s most powerful senator, he’ll have to keep his eye on the prize. That’s easier said than done when he meets the senator’s daughter, who’s wild, gorgeous, and 100 percent trouble.
 
Grace Pendleton is the black sheep of her conservative family. Yet while Aaron’s presence reminds her of a past she’d rather forget, something in his eyes keeps drawing her in. Maybe it’s the way his voice turns her molten. Or maybe it’s because deep down inside, the ultra-smooth, polished Aaron Clarkson might be more than even Grace can handle . . .
 

My favorite scene from Too Wild to Tame:

This scene in the snowy field is when it becomes clear that Aaron doesn’t have all the answers. He’s actually completely lost and wrong about what he needs/wants and Grace forces him to confront that. He’s seen as the emotionless plan man, the guy with the directions, but here we find out he’s full of shit. Grace is ripping off his industrial sized Band-Aid and saying, look, look inside yourself and describe what you see. No one has ever had the balls to do that to Aaron before and it’s a very raw moment.

“What if all we get are moments, Aaron? Like this. Like back there. We work and try and sit and stand and what are we working toward? I think…moments. And we—me and you—got to have one tonight. We got to make a moment for a bunch of other someone’s. So can we just stop and think about it? That’s all I’m doing. I’m thinking in my own way, even if it looks like something else to you. I’m just stopping. And thinking.”
He couldn’t swallow. Every time he tried, his throat clogged, pressure piling on top of pressure. “Okay,” he finally managed. “Okay, fine.”
But he wasn’t fine when she moved closer. Moved closer to the raw, exposed hunk of flesh, formerly known as Aaron. It was insane. Everything was insane. She was forcing him to consider light and shadows, when he’d only ever dealt in black and white. And she was the light. Shining bright enough to flay him.
He’d operated until now as if people were only hiding selfishness, the kind he didn’t bother to conceal. But not Grace. She contradicted everything he held true and it made the earth shake under his feet. She approached him like a lion tamer approaching their target, as if he might get startled and eat her whole. Was he the sane one here? Or had it been her the whole time? It couldn’t be both of them, could it? His thoughts fled when Grace laid her ear over his heart, gasping at whatever she heard. “You feel it, too. You feel the good we did?”
“I don’t know.”
A smile broke across her face. “That’s okay. It’s your first time.”

Meet the Author:

Tessa BaileyTessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of nine years and five-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
