Today it is my pleasure to feature a brand new anthology from Entangled Indulgence: When Honey Got Married by Kimberly Lang, Anna Cleary, Kelly Hunter & Ally Blake
I asked each of the authors to talk about their favorite scene from their book, here’s what they each had to say…
For Nina Tempted The Lord (Kelly Hunter)
Friends-to-lovers stories have the most marvelous elephant in the room. It’s the ‘do you want to be more than just friends?’ question and it hangs there in every scene, ignored, unasked. And then someone finally builds up the courage to ask it, and hello. Let the dance begin.
Alexander Carradice is an incorrigible flirt, a charming rogue and Nina’s platonic friend. Right up until he asks her what she wants in a man, and, when Nina regales him with her wish list says, ‘why don’t you try me?’. That moment… when they’re sitting in the bar and grill and Alex turns their friendship upside down… That’s my favorite.
For Pippa Bared All by Ally Blake
The one that comes instantly to mind is a flash back.
Pippa and Griff have a history. We know that going in. And this scene is where it reveals how it all began. While writing it I saw it all with such clarity – midnight moonlight pouring through open French doors of Griff’s family home, the scent of honeysuckle on the air. Pippa a seventeen-year-old mess, launching herself into the Delacroix kitchen to grab food to take on the road as she prepares to leave town for good…
What she found instead was “Griff standing in front of the open fridge door surrounded by a white cloud of vapor. No shirt. Pajama bottoms riding low on his hips. Unconsciously scratching at his flat belly with one hand.” When he turned, when he saw her, the look in his eyes as he spied the battered suitcase at her feet… That was the moment I fell for Griff. Pippa got there first ;).
For Eve Met Her Match by Anna Cleary
One of my favourite scenes in Eve Met Her Match is the one where Rainer is cajoling Eve into spilling the truth about her unrequited love for Brent.
Eve is something of an actress, and so beautiful and alluring she takes her ability to ensnare men for granted. Even when she’s not in the mood for flirtation she can’t help using her wiles on any helpless man within cooee. That’s why I love this scene. As Eve tries to explain to Rainer her confusion over her failure to win Brent, she’s automatically turning the full blast of her charm and beguiling ways onto Rainer. But at the same time, and with utter deliberation, Rainer is employing his considerable wiles to seduce her.
With such a sexy, stand-up guy determined to have his way, poor Eve doesn’t stand a chance!
For Grace Felt the Heat by Kimberly Lang
My favorite scene is probably the when Beau cooks for Grace at her place. Grace doesn’t know how to cook (and doesn’t really want to anyway), and Beau, being a chef, wants to feed her. But trying to cook in the kitchen of someone who doesn’t cook has its difficulties – the lack of any decent ingredients, mainly. Here’s this fabulous chef nearly stymied at the one thing he really does well simply because she’s so poor at it. And there’s a bit of an inside joke in that scene for me and my hubby. When Beau finds her can of processed Parmesan cheese in the fridge, he refers to it as “evil.” That is exactly what my hubby said to me when he found it in my fridge!
