Meanwhile, What The Bride Didn’t Know is getting lots of love from readers and from Romantic Times. A 4.5 star TOP PICK, an Editors Choice nomination for best KISS of 2013 and a November Seal of Excellence nomination from RT as well. They say:
“This is a really fun contemporary romance. It has it all, a long-simmering attraction, an exotic destination and amnesia! I do love soapy tropes, and Kelly Hunter really makes them work in her latest Harlequin Kiss title about intelligence team member Trig Sinclair, who has pined after his best friend’s younger sister Lena West for ages. When Trig offers to help Lena look for her missing brother, their mission brings them to Istanbul where the two must pretend to be married — and share the same bed. Category romances can be a really entertaining ride, and What the Bride Didn’t Know is a shining example of this. Read this one when you need to destress from Thanksgiving family time!” — Elissa Petruzzi
The West family series has been a joy to write. They’re mad for water sports (except for Poppy), all of them thrill seekers (even Poppy), and pretty much a law unto themselves. Look for Jared’s story in 2014 – he’ll finish the series. Jared’s really a law unto himself but I think I’ve finally found a woman who can challenge him, channel him, love him for exactly who he is. I feel like I’m slashing James Bond and M. Hard to say which version of M, or which gender. Hard to say which version of Bond (tho for the record, Daniel Craig – loving your work). I want that smart, sexy, dangerous, invisible-swords dynamic and I’m getting there.
But back to the now. Readers are really enjoying the Istanbul and Bodrum settings of What The Bride Didn’t Know. And every time a different story setting hits the spot I get to consider even more fabulous worldwide locations for future stories. Here, have some apple tea.
