“The first thing I want to say is that this book is funny, and I mean really funny. The only complaint I had was that it ended too soon. I can’t wait for the next installment. Don’t skip the Author page — it is hysterical.”

“Great to read and relax when you just want a short read that will make you smile. I will definitely be reading some of the other Frisky Chronicles soon!”

“Frisky is ‘every woman’. She is also who every woman would like to be! We are privy to Ms. Dimplebuns’ version of Dear Abby which is a delight. With #1 read and loved I am waiting for #2 with anticipation!”

Anne Kelleher, author of A Once and Future Love and the Shadowlands trilogy.

DECADES is the intimate story of a passionate triangle and is set during the pivotal mid-century years reaching from the end of World War II to the rebellious “Make Love, Not War” 1960’s.

Evelyn is a loyal and loving wife.
Nat is her successful but restless husband.
Joy is their daughter, torn between them.
Barbara is the other woman, divorced and desirable, who thinks she can have everything–including another woman’s husband.
But can she?
And is she willing to pay the price?

“Ruth Harris has achieved a very salable novel that will have three generations of American women reliving their love lives and recognizing ruefully and with wry affection just what changes have overtaken them. The characterizations are good and the period atmosphereabsolutely perfect — the songs we sang, the clothes we wore, the way we made love.” –Publisher’s Weekly

“Ruth Harris has re-created both the style and substance of three decades of American life — from the bobby socks and innocence of the Forties, to the crinolines and caution of the Fifties, to the bra-less T-shirts and alienation of the Sixties.” — Book-of-the-Month Club

“Powerful…A gripping novel that depicts the lives and loves of three generations of women.” — Women Today Book Club

“A terrific novel about love between a singular single girl and a married man.” –Cosmopolitan

“Three generations of women are succinctly capsuled in this novel by a writer who has all the intellect of Mary McCarthy, all the insight of Joan Didion. Rarely have attitudes been so probingly examined — but Ruth Harris is even more merciless in her examination of the male of the species.

“Tough, trenchant, chic and ultra-sophisticated, Ms. Harris also recreates the decades in which her heroines lived, from zoot suits and Sammy Kaye, through Eisenhower, Elvis and poodle-cut hairdos to moon walks, Mick Jagger and micro-minis.

“A brilliant book. Few will fail to be entertained and few will be able to forget what it has to say about men and women and the games people play.” –Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“I read DECADES straight through at one sitting and the more i think about that, the more impressive the novel seems.” — Houston Post

RG2E’s EOTD is Ruth Harris’ Animal-Loving African Adventure…Zuri

Happy Weekend, RG2E Peeps!!!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Boy do we have a very special and unique EOTD (Ebook of The Day)…

Check out its gorgeous cover too…

Author: Ruth Harris

On Amazon

Price: $2.99

Renny Kudrow, Director of the Kihali Animal Orphanage in Kenya, is an authority on animal communication. But human communication? Not so much, thinks Starlite Higgins, the new vet he has just hired over the objections of Kihali’s Board of Directors. She finds him prickly, remote, critical.

ZURI—the word means “beautiful” in Swahili—begins with the rescue of an orphaned rhino calf, Zuri, and almost fails when Starlite suddenly panics. Renny fears he has made a mistake hiring her and does not hide his disappointment. Starlite, anxious to please and accustomed to professional success, tries unsuccessfully to win his approval. Each hides a terrible secret and, despite their growing attraction, Renny and Starlite remain at odds.

Renny’s expertise in interpreting animal thought and emotion combine with Starlite’s medical skills to help heal Zuri’s physical and psychological wounds. Gradually, the orphaned baby rhino overcomes her traumatic memories, and, so, too, Renny and Starlite face their own scarred pasts. As the dedicated scientist and the brave, resourceful vet fall in love with the irresistible Zuri, their emotional walls fall away. Freed from the anchors of the past, they find it more and more difficult to resist their deep feelings for each other.

Based on extensive research, the novel’s triggering event is the near-extinction of Africa’s black rhino. Rhino horn is now more valuable than gold and the illicit trade in wild animals is third only to the smuggling of drugs and weapons. Current scientific findings about animal intelligence and communication underlie ZURI’s plot twists and turns—elephants (also at the orphanage) are far more intelligent than once thought and rhinos, with their heightened sense of smell and hearing, have extraordinary memories and bond closely with humans.

ZURI draws on the power of human-animal relationships, the heroic accomplishments of African animal orphanages, and the people, foreign and Kenyan, drawn to careers involving the care and conservation of wild animals. Filled with drama and danger that lead to a happy ending, ZURI will appeal to a wide audience of readers who love animals and have personally experienced the intense, mystical bond between humans and animals.

ZURI contains no sex or cursing and is appropriate for adult and YA readers.

Here’s a Couple RG2E Superfab Saturday Non-Fiction Selections featuring Michael Harris’ Beatles and Bombs

Happy Saturday RG2E Peeps!!!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!!!

It’s been a bit since we’ve featured some Superfab Non-Fiction Selections so that’s what we’re treatin’ ya to this weekend!

First up…

Michael Harris (yep…the DH – Darling Husband – part of the Thriller Writing Team Ruth and Michael Harris) and his A-mazing Non-Fiction gems…

On Amazon

Price: $3.99

Word Count: 185 Pages

The Beatles, Ed Sullivan and the Author

Ed first learns I have written a book when I hand him a finished manuscript. Naively, I imagine he’ll be flattered, but when he reads it, he blows his stack and stops speaking to me. He’s furious. I am revealing more about him, more backstage gossip and more details about the inner workings of the show than he wants made public.

Fortunately for me and for Always On Sunday, Ed simmers down eventually and decides my unauthorized biography is “magnificent.” He promotes it in his newspaper column, in interviews and in joint television appearances with me. Ed helps turn the book he initially hated into a national bestseller.

During my 11 years on the Sullivan show, no one created more excitement than the Beatles. February 7, 1964: Kennedy Airport. Their first trip to the United States. The screaming fans! The haircuts! The sassy answers! Welcome to New York! The entire country focuses on this place and these young men. Including me. I am meeting their plane. A CBS public relations executive for years. Now the network’s press representative on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

Ed was warned not to sign the Beatles: “You’re crazy! No British group has ever made it big in this country.” A month before they arrive, they are still unknown in America. Every reporter I contact turns down my invitation to go with me to JFK.

Two weeks later, “I Want To Hold Your Hand” rockets to the top of the charts. Beatlemania crosses the Atlantic, and I am besieged by thousands of ticket requests. Reporters plead to join me at JFK.

On February 14, I greet the Beatles again, this time in Miami for a second Sullivan show. I do my best to stay out of the way but, thanks to papparazzi determined to cash in on every shot of the Fab Four, I appear in photos published around the world (including the NY Post). In the captions I am called a Beatle, a case of mistaken identity I still laugh about with my wife, best-selling novelist Ruth Harris.

When I return to New York, Ed searches for me backstage. One stagehand is impressed. “Ed must really like you,” he says. “You’ve only worked for him for four years, and he already knows your name.”
Ed And The Celebrities Who Loved Him — Or Not!

Why did Frank Sinatra take out an ad saying, “Ed, you’re sick, sick, sick.”?
You’ll find out in Always On Sunday.

Why did Mary Tyler Moore sue “The Ed Sullivan Show”?
You’ll find out in Always On Sunday.

Why did CBS cancel Bob Dylan’s appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” — against Ed’s wishes?
You’ll find out in Always On Sunday.

Elvis’ fans kissed him where? Ed was stunned when Elvis explained. What did Elvis say?
You’ll find out in Always On Sunday

Reviewers Rave!

“One of the most intriguing show business books to come along in a long time. It’s great, very well written and tells it like it is. I knew Sullivan for years and consider Harris’ book an accurate sketch of a complex man. Well done!”
— Chicago Sun Times

“Honestly told …with remarkable frankness and genuine inside knowledge. In the field of show business biographies, Always On Sunday has secured a place on the shelf reserved for the very best.”
— Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Always On Sunday: An Inside View….. And it is inside! The book is studded with backstage gossip about showbiz greats.”
— Houston Post

“Highly readable and surprisingly candid….A remarkable success story.”
— Miami Herald

“A portrait, warts and all. From the very outset, Harris disarms the reader.”
— San Diego Union

“Delightful!”
— Charlotte News

“Irresistible!”
— Boston Globe

The Atomic Times, my 2005 memoir, is based on a more fraught experience: the shocking, funny, sad and raunchy portrait of army life on a nuclear Pacific island in 1955 where troops were used as human guinea pigs during 17 H-bomb tests.
About the Author

MICHAEL HARRIS began writing The Atomic Times in 1955 when he was an army draftee stationed on Eniwetok and finished fifty years later. In between, he married novelist Ruth Harris and spent years as a public relations executive at CBS Television, eleven of them on The Ed Sullivan Show — he was the first person to welcome the Beatles to America on their initial trip to the United States. Mr. Harris’s Always On Sunday: An Inside View of Ed Sullivan, the Beatles, Elvis, Sinatra & Ed’s Other Guests is also available on Kindle.

On Amazon

Price: $3.99

Word Count: 288 pages

SHOCKING, FUNNY, SAD, RAUNCHY!
Catch-22 with radiation! Area 51 meets Dr. Strangelove!

“A gripping memoir leavened by humor, loyalty and pride of accomplishment. A tribute to the resilience, courage and patriotism of the American soldier.” — Henry Kissinger

The biggest and baddest of America’s atmospheric nuclear weapons test regimes, Operation Redwing mixed saber rattling with mad science, while overlooking the cataclysmic human, geopolitical and ecological effects. But mostly, it just messed with guys’ heads.

Major Maxwell, who put Safety First, Second and Third–except when he didn’t.
Berko, the wise-cracking Brooklyn Dodgers fan forced to cope with the H-bomb and his mother’s cookies.
Tony, who thought military spit and polish plus uncompromising willpower made him an exception.
Carl Duncan, who clung to his girlfriend’s photos and a dangerous secret.
Major Vanish, who did just that.

In THE ATOMIC TIMES, Michael Harris welcomes readers into the U.S. Army’s nuclear family–their F-words were Fallout and Fireball. In a distinctive narrative voice, Harris describes his H-bomb year with unforgettable imagery and insight into the ways isolation and isotopes change men for better and for worse.

“Brilliantly conceived, elegantly rendered and persuasively authentic.”
— Robert B. Parker, bestselling author of the Spenser and Jesse Stone series

“One of the best books I’ve ever read, combining elements of Catch 22 and Dr. Strangelove in a memoir both hilarious and tragic. A ‘must’ read, destined to become a classic.”
— John G. Stoessinger, Ph.D. (Harvard), winner of the Bancroft Prize for Inernational Affairs, member of the Council on Foreign Relations

“Harris has seamlessly presented a colorful cast of characters, and a shockingly honest depiction of his experience. The effect is at once deeply personal and politically profound.”
— Senator Charles Schumer

“Harris’ frank and disturbing descriptions of the criminally irresponsible proceedings on Eniwetok, and the physical and mental pain he and others endured, constitute shocking additions to atomic history. Amazingly enough, given his ordeal, Harris remains healthy.”
— Booklist

“Harris uses a chatty, dead-pan voice that highlights the horrifying absurdity of life on the island: the use of Geiger counters to monitor scrambled eggs’ radiation level, three-eyed fish swimming in the lagoon, corroded, permanently open windows that fail to keep out the radioactive fall-out and men whose toenails glow in the dark. (The money initially earmarked for enlisted men’s goggles was diverted to buy new furniture for the colonel’s house. ‘Goggles are important,’ Harris is told. ‘But the colonel’s furniture is important, too.’) An entertaining read in the bloodline of Catch-22, Harris achieves the oddest of victories: a funny, optimistic story about the H-bomb.”
— Publisher’s Weekly

RG2E Reader2Author Interview with the A-mazing NY Times Bestseller Ruth Harris and Superfab Reader Marilou George

RG2E Reader2Author Interview with Ruth Harris and Marilou George

by Alicia Street
Here’s another entry in my series of Reader2Author Interviews, where authors mix it up with one of their readers.

Yesterday D.D. introduced Override, the new thriller by Ruth and Michael Harris.

Today we’ll get a closer look at Ruth Harris, my fellow contributor to the WG2E blog, and an all-around superfab lady.

Ruth is a New York Times bestselling author whose books (with Random House, Simon & Schuster, and St.Martin’s Press) have sold millions of copies in hardcover and paperback, been translated into 19 languages, published in 25 countries and selected by the Literary Guild and Book-of-the-Month Club.

Her chosen reader is Marilou George, a Mom, Wife and lover of books. Marilou is a member of The Kindle Book Review Team and a book blogger with her own site: Confessions Of A Reader. She is a self-employed consultant designing Web-sites for small local business owners as well as consulting on technical issues.


Alicia to Ruth and Marilou: When did you first become an avid reader? As a child or an adult? What got you started?

Ruth: I’ve read for longer than I remember. Seriously. My Mom told me that at about three, I sat down at the dining room table, book in front of me, dictionary to the side & taught myself how to read. Sounds sort of crazy, but I actually believe it. I can’t remember not knowing how to read; my Dad loved words and had all kinds of dictionaries; my Mom wasn’t a bullsh*tter; and both of them were avid readers. Books, newspapers, magazines were in plentiful supply as I was growing up and my paternal grandfather, a physician, was famous for his library. So books are a constant in my family.

Marilou: I have been an avid reader as far back as I can remember. As a child I loved the library and during the summers the Bookmobile would come to the school every week and I was always the first one in line. I remember the feeling of holding those books in my hands and beginning another adventure that would carry me away. Reading has always been my release and something I couldn’t live without.

Alicia: Ditto on that one, Marilou. Do your children read?

Marilou: I started reading to my son when he was 1 month old and everyone thought I was crazy. Well my son is now graduating from High School and his reading test scores are through the roof! Who was the crazy one?

Alicia: How often do you read? Where do you read? And is there a time of day that is ‘reading’ time?

Marilou: I read every day, usually in the evening in my comfortable little corner of the couch. I take my book or my Kindle with me anytime I have any appointments to pass the time waiting, there is always a wait!

Ruth: Late afternoon or evening. On my iPad. We live in a house filled with books, but dusting them and wondering where I will find space for all the new ones I was constantly buying is no longer an issue. Liberating. I can indulge my book greed to my heart’s content.

Alicia: What genres are your favorites? Any you absolutely would never read?

Marilou: I have always been open to any genre of book, I don’t have a specific one. The only genre that I do not read is Horror, it’s just not my style.

Ruth: I read across genres. You never know when and where you’ll find something you love or something that will trigger a terrific idea.

Alicia to Ruth: Do you have an author you currently read that inspires your writing?

Ruth: All of them inspire me; it can be a word choice, a turn of phrase, a character portrait. They are all inspiring—even if reminding me what NOT to do!

Ruth to Marilou: How did you find my books? Which on did you read first?

Marilou: I first discovered your books when you selected me to read/review Decades. I don’t know what made you select me out of all the reviewers but I feel we are a perfect fit.

Alicia to Marilou: How did that first book affect you?

Marilou: I loved it! I could totally relate to the story, and I felt as if I understood the message Ruth was giving. Ruth presents a style of writing that will connect you to each character and allow you to feel the emotions and struggles that they face.

Alicia to Marilou: Which one of Ruth’s characters is most compelling to you? Any that you don’t like?

Marilou: I find all of Ruth’s characters to be compelling. Ruth has a wonderful way of bringing them to life and exposing their inner emotions and vulnerabilities. I find that I have compassion for all of them and can relate to them on a human level.

Alicia to Ruth: Is there a particular character you get the most compliments or complaints about?

Ruth: People tell me they find my characters—they each have positives and negative and I don’t flinch from rounded portraits—very believable and relatable.

Alicia to Marilou: What prompts you as a reader to contact an author?

Marilou: I have such a profound appreciation for all the work that goes into being an author. When I pick up a book to read and it almost physically transports me into the story I feel great satisfaction and appreciation of the work involved to be an author. When I read Ruth’s books they carry me back to places in my own life and I am swept up in the story. This is the very reason that I read, not only to learn but to be held hostage by the story and lose myself in the book. It has been my pleasure to have met Ruth and I very much enjoy our connection.

Alicia to Ruth: Have you ever had a reader’s feedback influence your work?

Ruth: Not that I can recall

Marilou to Ruth: Did you always want to be a writer?

Ruth: I was always a huge reader but when I was a kid, I wanted to be a professional skater with an ice show. In high school, I wanted to be a lawyer but a summer job in a law office cured that: behold the definition of toxic boredom.

Ruth to Marilou: What do you love to do when you’re not reading?

Marilou: When I am not reading I love to spend time with my family. I also like to crochet and do other crafty things. I love working outside in my yard and since I live in Daytona Beach the beach is a great alternative.

Alicia to Marilou: Is there something you’d like to say to most authors? Something you wish they’d understand better about readers?

Marilou: I feel that readers just want to be swept up in a story and taken away from their daily lives. Books have been a very important part of my life and I am grateful to all authors for their work.

Alicia: Ahhh. The perfect reader 🙂

“OVERRIDE delivers the goods: thrills, gut-churning suspense, nightmarish terror. Ruth and Michael Harris have delivered another great read and sure bestseller. I dare you to put it down!” — Bob Mayer, former Green Beret and million-copy bestselling author of AREA 51

Here’s the description:

OVERRIDE is based on secret, real-life psychiatric experiments known as MK-ULTRA and conducted by the CIA in the 1960’s.

When the experiment—called the Lullaby Room in the novel—is deemed a failure, respected psychiatrist, Victor Ressid, is left bankrupt and embittered, abandoned to his own strange sexual obsessions and fantasies of revenge.

Zeb Marlowe, a scarred survivor of the experiment, tormented and invisibly wounded, and Jai Jai Leland, the intelligent, beautiful widow of a man who didn’t survive, must uncover the secret conspiracy at the heart of the government and stop a nuclear threat that puts the country’s security at risk.

Written in 2012 with a contemporary feel, OVERRIDE is set during the paranoid 1970’s. The novel takes place on the beautiful islands of the Caribbean, in Ireland, the Philippines, Canada, Washington, DC and in a buried underground torture chamber located on a secluded private estate near the Mexico-Belize border.

Slave to the rich and the rude, cosmetic surgery receptionist Serenity Holland longs for the day she’s a high-flying tabloid reporter. When she meets Jeremy Ritchie — the hang-dog man determined to be Britain’s Most Eligible Bachelor by making himself over from head to toe and everything in between — Serenity knows she’s got a story no editor could resist.

With London’s biggest tabloid on board and her very own column tracking Jeremy’s progress from dud to dude, Serenity is determined to be a success. But when Jeremy’s surgery goes drastically wrong and she’s ordered to cover all the car-crash goriness, Serenity must decide how far she really will go for her dream job.

A roller coaster of a romance between a divorced dad and a dance teacher.

Ballet instructor Casey Richardson takes an immediate dislike to the brash, arrogant Drew Byrne when he pulls his nine-year-old son out of her “silly” dance class. Still, she cannot help noticing his smoking hot body and bedroom eyes.

A working class girl raised in the small fishing and farming community on Long Island’s rural North Fork, Casey knows all too well how easily a girl can get hurt by the notorious womanizing hunks that flourish on the South Fork in the Hamptons. Men like Drew Byrne.

The last thing she needs is for him to be the only one who can save her from losing her dance academy, the dream she has worked so hard to turn into a reality.

Remarrying is definitely off Drew’s list of things to do. As head of his Fortune 500 trucking company, he enjoys his wealth and has no problem keeping it a game with some of the world’s most beautiful women. So why should his son’s challenging, straight talking dance teacher get under his skin in a way no other female has?

Sure, Casey Richardson has luminous brown eyes and a lean, taut body that drives him nuts, but he’s seen plenty in his day with the supermodels he is used to dating. He tells himself it is because Casey is the only one who was able to bring his shy, uncommunicative son out of his shell. But even that isn’t it.

Bewildered, Drew decides he just might make use of those ridiculous psychic readings he won at North Cove’s Annual Fourth Of July Bazaar raffle. Little does he know the local psychic who donated the readings has taken off last minute for some trekking in Tibet —and Casey was swayed into substituting for her with phone readings to the anonymous winner.

Add in a stint on a hit TV dance-off series, a cozy local coffee shop, a narcissistic rock star and a protective big brother to make KISS ME, DANCER a sexy, heartfelt and fun read.

The Fashion Police was runner-up in the Chapter One Promotions Novel Competition 2010 and nominated Best Novel with Romantic Elements 2010 by The Romance Reviews. It is a screwball comedy-mystery, combining murder and mayhem with romance and chick-lit.

Amber Fox has been making too many mistakes lately and something’s got to give…

For starters, Amber accidentally shoots Chief Inspector Janice Skipper and gets thrown off the police force. The only one who knows the truth about the incident is Amber, but no one will believe her.

After accepting a job as an insurance investigator from her ex-fiancé, Brad Beckett, it turns out that Brad thinks they’ve still got unfinished business and the job description includes sexual favours that come with a price.

When fashion designer, Umberto Fandango, goes missing, Amber becomes embroiled in a complicated case. But Amber’s arch-enemy, Chief Inspector Skipper, is also investigating his disappearance, and it’s a race against time for Amber to solve the mystery before Skipper does and get her old job back. And just when Amber thinks things can’t get any worse, she’s being stalked by some crazy mobsters.

Who is Umberto Fandango? Is he dead? And can Amber stay one step ahead and stay alive?

HOOKED is a story of sex, greed, ambition, murder, revenge and assassination — and of a gifted doctor from a small town in Kentucky.

With a contemporary feel, the novel takes place in the mid-20th century when America was at the pinnacle of its power and prestige.  Set in New York and Washington, a remote fishing village on the Turkish Riviera, Sweden, Vienna, Cairo and aboard Lydia, the world’s most beautiful yacht, the story centers on Gavin Jenkins, the brilliant, charismatic Dr. FeelGood.

Dr. Jenkins’ miracle treatments give patients everything they want:  youth, beauty, radiant vitality and sexual potency.  No wonder he is worshiped by the celebrities who become his patients.  No wonder his influence runs from the private island of an enigmatic Turkish billionaire with a bloody secret to the crimson-draped bedroom of a depraved, Mid-eastern Prince;  from the private dressing rooms of world-famous artists to the heights of international society and the inner sanctums of the White House itself.

The touch of his hands and the plunge of his needle made every fantasy come true.  No wonder so many were HOOKED.

WARNING: HOOKED contains sexually explicit scenes. If you are offended by such material, please do not buy HOOKED.

With this debut launch of our brand new WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies, we’re treating you to a terrific, one-of-a-kind approach to the anthology concept.

You’ll get a variety of genres all packaged together, with a variety of story-lengths too, as a wonderful way to discover authors new to you!

Plus, each WG2E Anthology is based on a different theme.

Here’s what we mean by that…

In our WG2E Winter Wonderland Anthology, we’re treating you to stories that yes, have a Winter Wonderland element, BUT definitely not in the average way.

You’ll never think of Winter Wonderland in quite the same way. For example…:

  • “What’s goin’ on underneath all that snow?” for D. D. Scott’s A CUT ABOVE CRAZY
  • “More than people wear goose down parkas in Winter” for Tonya Kappes BEAD OF DOUBT
  • “There’s nothing like a sauna to thaw a cold spell” for Talli Roland’s MISTLETOE AND THE FIVE-YEAR ITCH
  • “An Ice Queen can be much more than a very cold spouse” for Tamara Ward’s JADE O’REILLY AND THE ICE QUEEN
  • “The flavors of Winter…as in Winter Green Mint, Anyone?” for Sibel Hodge’s THE S-WORD AND THE LADY GARDEN
  • “Not only reindeer dance in the snow…unicorns do too” for Alicia Street’s SNOW DANCE
  • “Breaking News: The All-Things Holidays Edition” for Lacy Maran & Kevin Michael’s NOTHING IS SACRED COMEDY’S GUIDE TO THE HOLIDAYS
  • “More than the Earth dies in Winter” for Patrice Fitzgerald’s TILL DEATH DO US PART
  • “There’s ice on the tracks, but not the kind you might think…” for Kathy Carmichael’s MAYHEM ON THE WINTERLAND EXPRESS
  • “Not everyone loves pumpkin pie” for T.M. Souder’s DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW

Happy Reading and Welcome to our WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies!

BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS
Think Sex and The City meets Urban Cowboy
A Manhattan apparel designer, who’s also a country line dancing queen, has traded in her stiletto-clad clientele for (1) the frequent shoppers of a Music City tractor supply store and (2) a tomato-grown’, bootscootin’ cowboy, but she must accept that her best fit is on the dance floor moving to her own style and his lead.

STOMPIN’ ON STETSONS
Think Hell’s Kitchen mixed with Meet The Fockers
A Manhattan-raised, culinary-schooled pastry chef, teams up with her favorite cowboy, a Meat n’ Three diner owner, to cater the wedding of a Music City socialite, but to get the job done, they must handle the heat sizzling between them while rising above their ex-factors as her ex is the wedding planner from hell and his is the bride-to-be.

BUCKLES ME BABY
Think paparazzi-hell and Ponzi-scheme fall-out meet home-shopping and Babies “R” Us
A Manhattan-raised, marketing and promotions impresario and her Nashville TN homebuilder beau are forced to face overnight fame from their success on a home shopping channel, but can they handle big business with twins on the way, especially when they’re dodging paparazzi-hell on account of one of their parents’ Ponzi-scheming past?

THUG GUARD
Think The Rachel Zoe Project meets Bond, James Bond and a Madoff-style, Ponzi-scheming King.
Zoey Witherspoon is a Rachel Zoe-esque Hollywood Stylist to The Stars – who’s also a wanna-be Stephanie Plum. She’s teamed-up with her very own Bond, James Bond-style double agent who’s about to bring down a Madoff-type, Ponzi-scheming King. Oh…and along for the adventure…try The Bootscootin’ Books Mom Squad – now a blue-haired version of Charlie’s Angels – plus all the rest of your fave Bootscootin’ characters too!

It’s a super-sonic speed, action-packin’ thrill-ride, full of pot-bellied pigs, hydrofoils, and gelato!

FLUID FULFILLMENT
The Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mysteries are a unique treat for fans of D. D.’s Bootscootin’ & Cozy Cash Mystery Books…a short story-sized peek into her collection of interconnected books.
For Fluid Fulfillment, think Victoria’s Secret meets Kill Bill.
