Slick: When I read Jenna Rutland’s first book Just for the Summer back this time last year I fell instantly in love with her storytelling and her fictional town of Lake Bliss. Jenna is back with her second book in the series Just For Appearances and it is every bit as good. So Jenna, welcome to Guilty Pleasures and thank you for being with us here today!
Jenna: Thank you so much for having me here. It was wonderful to meet you last year, and I’m looking forward to seeing you at RAGT again this year!
Slick: Please tell us how you came up with the town of Lake Bliss and if it’s modeled after somewhere you’ve lived or visited?Read the rest of this entry »
5. Let’s start with food. I’m going with savory and then sweet. My fast food guilty pleasure is the fried cheese curds from Culver’s. I don’t know if Culver’s is a Midwest thing or if it’s everywhere, but if you’ve never indulged, head on out to the Chicago area. You are missing out!
4. A sweet guilty pleasure—and I can only find these at my fancy grocery store that has an international aisle—HobNobs. I lived in Scotland for a year and got hooked on these McVitie’s biscuits. Check out the part on the package where it says they are a good source of fiber. That means healthy, right?
3. Pop music. I’m not ashamed of my mainstream musical tastes. I love what I love, and if that means you pull up next to me at a stoplight and see me rocking out to some Taylor Swift or Maroon 5—or belting out an Ed Sheeran ballad—so be it. NO GUILT.
2. Tattoos. On men or women, doesn’t matter. I think body art is hot. I got my second tattoo ever when my first book was published and will keep adding birds for each new release. Here’s hoping for many birds taking flight up my arm in the years to come. This pic shows a fresh new bird from my December release. Bird #3 on its way for ONE NIGHT!
1. My top guilty pleasure is one I’m most proud of—the TV show ARROW. I started watching ARROW on Netflix over the winter holidays and am proud to say that after 4 weeks, I had caught up on all 55 episodes and am now current with season 3. And within the show itself, my guiltiest pleasure is watching Oliver Queen (the gorgeous Stephen Amell) do the salmon ladder.

In true Kallypso Masters style, Nobody’s Dream brings us Luke and Cassie and their quest to find love, trust and faith. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
One broken heart.
One battered soul.
No one said life would be fair or easy. Quiet, Peruvian-born artist Cassie Lopez learned this the hard way. Betrayed by the man she planned to marry, she shut herself off as far away from all but her closest friend from college…
Until the night Luke Denton came crashing into her Colorado mountain sanctuary with a vengeance. Confused by her heart’s response to this kind and gentle man, Cassie pushes herself to help the cowboy recover quickly so she can send him on his way. But Luke’s patience and understanding threaten to break down the very defenses she needs to survive in this world after he’s gone.
Search-and-Rescue worker Luke, who lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident, also knows firsthand of the unfairness of life. He keeps his own nightmares at bay by focusing on his rescue activities, most recently adopting and working with abused and neglected horses.
Can two wounded people find trust and love together? Do nightmares end where dreams come true?
Two entertaining, charming, and outrageously sexy stories bundled up because let’s face most things are better in twos! ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures

Cruising for Love
When Andi Greene heads out on a cruise, she’s pumped for a fun week of sun bathing with her best friend. Little does she know her best friend has surprises in store. The first is the cruise’s theme of BDSM. The other? Ship’s doctor Jonah Coleman, Andi’s first love, her high school boyfriend —the boy she thought she’d marry before he moved across the country and dropped her cold. But there’s nothing cold about their reunion. Sparks fly, and Andi’s relaxing cruise turns into a week of hot loving.
Jonah can’t believe he’s getting a second chance with Andi , who might need more than he knows how to give. But he’s willing to put everything on the line to find out if the heat between them is just the remnants of teenage love or more. And even though he has to let her go again, he’s determined she’ll never forget him.
Like usual, Lisa Renee Jones has just the right mix of love, sex and mystery. Her writing keeps you on the edge of your seat and has you wondering just how they are going to get out of the trouble that they are in. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
The Walker Brothers…
Tall, dark, and deadly, these three brothers run Walker security. Each brother is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.
Royce Walker, a former FBI Agent, who’s opened a private security firm with his brothers, has always had the hots for the prim, proper Assistant District Attorney, but considered her hand’s off because of a family connection. However, when danger threatens Lauren, he isn’t willing to stand by and watch her get hurt. Now the passion for survival is only rivaled by the passion burning between them. And that passion, might just be the death of them both.
Film still from the never-before-seen FIFTY SHADES DARKER TEASE, available exclusively on the upcoming release of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY on Digital HD on Friday, 5/1 and on Blu-ray on Friday, 5/8. FIFTY SHADES DARKER arrives in theaters February 2017.
