Happy Release Day! — Red Velvet

19 Sep

Happy, happy release day to Susie Waltner! Her newest contemporary romance, Red Velvet, book 2 in the Love in Color series, is now available! I’m excited that Susie will be joining the contemporary romance panel discussion at my small town’s book festival, Turning A New Page, in January!

An influential catering job could be the stepping-stone Cassidy Cagle needs to expand her business and reach her dream of owning a bed-and-breakfast. However, when the source of her high school humiliation steps into the kitchen, all her hard work crumbles like a dry biscuit. 

Dissatisfied by the blatant flirting from women only interested in his celebrity status, Seth Mason wants nothing more than to find someone who sees beyond his role in a popular country music band. When yet another social climber corners him at a gathering, he escapes her clutches and inadvertently puts Cassidy’s career in jeopardy. 

Hoping for a second chance, Seth comes up with a plan to make amends and solve both their problems. He’ll use his connections to bring her more business while, as his fake girlfriend, she can discourage the unwelcome female advances. As the two spend time together, attraction grows, but deciphering between what’s just an act and what is real becomes impossible. And when Seth’s secrets clash with Cassidy’s stubborn independence, their harmonious future hangs in the balance.

Suzie Waltner is a lover of fiction and is, first and foremost, a reader. When she’s not at work, reading or writing, you can find her cheering on her hockey team or dancing an hour away in Zumba class. Until her second year of college, her life plan was to become a veterinarian. A fainting spell while watching a surgery performed on a sheep changed that plan. Now she works in the corporate world during the day while creating stories in her free time. Suzie resides in a suburb of Nashville, TN and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers as well as Faith, Hope, and Love Christian Writers.

Her latest novel, Midnight Blue, was a 2023 Holt Medallion Finalist in the Short Inspirational Romance category and a 2023 Maggie Award Finalist – Inspirational Romance.
