Spotlight/Guest Post: Her Best Laid Plans by Eve Devon and Love Is A Four Letter Word by Zara Stoneley + #Giveaway (US/International)

Welcome to Her Best Four Letter Word Blog Hop, celebrating the publication of two HarperImpulse titles: Eve Devon’s ‘Her Best Laid Plans’ (contemporary romance) and Zara Stoneley’s ‘Love is a Four Letter Word’ (erotic romance).

Look out for the deets for TWO GIVEAWAYS via Rafflecopter and using the comments section on this blog at the end of the post.

Every time I start writing a new book I get to meet a new, sexy hero – true, he can be a pain at times, but I always fall in love with him and letting him go can be hard!
So, here’s the new man in my life, meet: Jake Harcourt from Love is a Four Letter Word!
Name: Jake Harcourt
Height: 6ft
Occupation: Horse whisperer and free spirit
About: When Jake lost his home and his family in one foul swoop he made a vow never to be in the same situation again. If he didn’t have anything or anyone in his life then there was nothing to lose. But he never reckoned on growing to love what he did – and he never reckoned on meeting a poor little rich girl who wasn’t quite what she seemed…
Motto: You can’t escape who you are.
Description: ‘He was stood finger poised over the doorbell. Devastating. Red hot, grab me while you can, oozing sexuality in a barely covered layer of respectability kind of devastating. She’d not seen him suited and booted before, she hadn’t even been able to imagine it, well it had never occurred to her. Jake was leathers and boots, torn jeans and ripped t-shirts, earthy and dirty. Shag on a motorbike sexy. This Jake was ten times more dangerous…’
Inspiration: It’s in the eyes!
Jake’s reaction when Georgie tells him what she wants: Georgina was all grown up, and she’d grown up as trouble. The type of trouble that had always tempted a man like him. And he would have grabbed it with both hands, except he remembered the girl she used to be. And he remembered the life he used to have. And he wasn’t going back.
Just one of the reasons Georgie starts falling for Jake: He was staring at her, like she was stupid. She stared back, because she couldn’t not. Dark curls, green eyes, a dimple in the middle of his chin, a stud in his ear. Black motorbike leathers...

Love is A Four Letter Word by Zara Stoneley – Sometimes being bad is just too good to miss…


I feel very privileged to write romantic fiction and the absolute best part is creating sexy heroes, sassy heroines and happy ever afters!
Everyone, I’d love you to meet: Jared King from Her Best Laid Plans
Name: Jared King
Age: 29
Height: 6ft2”
Occupation: Corporate Property Investor
About: Ten years ago, ex bad-boy businessman Jared, deviated from the plans set out for him at birth, and as a result life is now measured; planned. But then news that his father is dying and that the family business is in trouble completely side-swipes him - putting him straight in the path of his best friend’s sister, Amanda Gray!
Motto: I love it when a Plan comes together
Description: ‘…for all that was up-front, solid, responsible and in-control about Jared – there was, lurking just beneath the surface, a hint of danger and a dark sensuousness that any woman would be inclined to want to try and entice out to play.’
Inspiration: For a sneaky inspirational peak…click:
Jared’s reaction when Amanda shows up to respond to his ‘Code Red’ text: Shock had got a hold of him. Simple as that, he cautioned, as displacement therapy played dirty with his mind, telling him it was perfectly okay to respond to the sweet temptation of Amanda leaning into him. He felt some of his famous constraint shake loose. Felt the devil-may-care attitude he’d stamped so forcefully from his personality ten years before resurface with a thud to beat a rhythm over his consciousness and awaken the Jared of old.
Just one of the reasons Amanda starts falling for Jared: Lord. The man had moves. Real, heart-stopping, stomach-dropping, toe-curling, finger-clenching, body-needing-support moves.

Her Best Laid Plans – Love is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans


Love is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans…

The Totally Perfect Life Plan of Amanda Gray

Step 1 – Take total control of own destiny and avoid getting too wrapped up in the details.
Step 2 – Definitely do NOT kiss gorgeous bad-boy businessman who doesn't know how to live life without scheduling it six months in advance, even if he is absolutely irresistible.
Step 3 – Don't even THINK of accompanying him to London as his PA to enjoy steamy encounters in a metropolitan paradise.
Step 4 – Absolutely, positively, whatever you do- do NOT fall in love with him…
