Adult Contemporary Romance
January 13, 2014
Five years ago, she left without a word...
Internationally-renowned artist Max Estin is as well known for his million dollar commissions as he is his partying and clubbing. But Max is hiding a secret—for almost a year he's been completely blocked. Unable to paint. And to unlock his art, and save his career, he's going to need the one woman he never wanted to see again.
Now, he's determined to make her pay...
Kira Estin never told Max exactly why she left, or what secrets forced her to return home to Passion Creek so abruptly. So when a chance reunion turns to seduction, Kira is more than a little suspicious. She knows better than to trust Max, but can't fight the fire that he lights in her body—or her heart. But when everyone is hiding a secret, can even the hottest passion survive?
Reforming The Playboy is Available Now
Visiting Passion Creek—Welcome to the Railway Tavern!
I live in Portland, Oregon, where craft beer is a way of life. People flock to breweries that create microbrews like Hopworks Urban Brewery’s Abominable Winter Ale, or the Alameda Brewhouse’s El Torero India Pale Ale. But Oregon isn’t the only place to find great local beer. According to the Brewer’s Association there were over 2,300 craft breweries in operation in 2012. Many are in Colorado, where my latest book, Reforming the Playboy is set.
Reforming the Playboy takes place in Passion Creek, a fictional small town that combines all the best things in mountain living: a beautiful setting, a tight-knit group of people, adorable little shops, and of course, a great brewpub.
The Railway Tavern was new to Passion Creek, but had been an instant success. Matt DeLeo, the owner, had created the restaurant and attached brewery from an abandoned warehouse. The renovated space now had a huge open ceiling, a massive bar that ran the length of one wall and lots of tall tables surrounded by barstools, many filled with young couples, groups of friends, and families.
You’ll spend time at the Railway Tavern in Blackmailed by the Brewer, by Rachel Lyndhurst (Passion Creek #3). It’s the sort of place that everyone enjoys—from the Passion Creek mayor (a boisterous fellow with a suspiciously red nose) to Taney Loftner, the nosy proprietor of the Passion Creek Drug-Mart.
Though few of us probably have a bar like Cheers in our lives, I imagine the Railway Tavern is a little like that. A place where you walk in and see old friends and families around the tables. Where the bartender is a guy like Tim, who bears a strong resemblance to his Nordic ancestors in his sandy hair and ruddy cheeks. This kind of guy:
“My mother says by the time I was three she knew I was either going to be a bartender or the president,” Tim said with a smile. “Being president seemed like too much work, so here I am.”
At the Railway Tavern, you can have a fantastic burger or steak, and if you’re lucky there will be a new batch of their signature pale ale. You’ll find a comfy booth or a barstool to perch on. You’ll relax and laugh, probably eat more fries and less salad than you should.
And of course, being in Passion Creek, there’s a good chance you’ll fall in love.
But that’s a story for another day.
To celebrate this stop on the tour of Passion Creek, I’m giving away a Passion Creek pint glass and a copy of Reforming the Playboy!
