Hello, dears! Today it's my tour stop for The Valentine Challenge by Marisa Cleveland. It's an adorable Entangled book with romance and fun. For my stop I'm going to be hosting an interview and there's also a giveaway. Marisa is very, VERY sweet as you will see in a moment. But first, I'll start off by spotlighting the book!
The Valentine Challenge
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Release Date: February 12, 2013
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Stacey Bradford believes in love, but when her hot boss, Marshall Royce, decides to close her best friend's flower shop - days before Valentine's Day! - Stacey declares war.
Intrigued by Stacey's devotion to her friend, the hearts and flowers holiday, and belief in true love, Marsh issues a challenge - prove love exists or deliver the closing documents to her friend herself.
Stacey never could resist a challenge, but when Marsh makes Valentine's Day the deadline for their deal, Stacey must decide how far she's willing to go for love.
Hi Marisa! Welcome to Sparkles and Lightning! We’re very happy to have you here today!
Thank you soooo much for inviting me on your blog! I'm super excited to be here, and I love the name of your blog!
What’s your favorite line from The Valentine Challenge?
"For you, I broke all my own rules."
Short and sweet with a side of sexy
Why did you decide to write, and why romance?
I'm a naturally quiet person, and writing lets me communicate all the thoughts in my heart. I love the promise of the happily ever after in romance novels. No matter how horrible or hopeless, in a romance novel, love will always prevail.
What is the best part about being an author?
Connecting with other writers and readers. Some of the best moments in my life happen with other writers and readers.
If you could collaborate with any author, living or dead, who would it be?
I have been fortunate to connect with so many amazing authors! Just the idea of collaborating with one of them excites me. If I have to choose just one, I choose my husband.
How do you spend your time when you’re not writing?
Reading, cuddling, and sleeping.
Thank you so much for stopping by, Marisa!
Thanks so much for having me on your blog! I love sparkles, and your other entries are so interesting!
