Bella Andre Author Spotlight Interview, Perfect Kiss Release, Summer Lovin’ Reader Party, and More!

Perfect Kiss is Live Right Now!

For him, everything had fallen into place…

Levi Dorsey didn’t want much and never complained. The private, sexy bar owner was content in his life and excited to move forward with his new business project. There was just one problem–he’d never been able to forget about that kiss…or about her.

For her, everything had fallen apart…

Shelby Kellan was once confident in knowing who she was and what she wanted. But recent events caused the gorgeous, blue-eyed beauty to barely recognize the woman she saw when she looked in the mirror. She knew she needed a fresh start. Could she do it with his kiss still lingering on her lips?

Eighteen months ago, Levi and Shelby shared the perfect kiss. Now, he wanted more, but would she be able to give that to him after already losing so much?

What are you working on now? What is your next project? I’m currently writing my second New Adult contemporary romance about The Morrisons. It’s called TEMPT ME LIKE THIS and it’s about a sizzling hot up-and-coming rock star and a brainy “good girl” who needs to go on tour with him as a part of her application to business school. It’s super sexy and so much fun! I absolutely love writing about my Morrisons and I can’t wait for everyone to read TEMPT ME LIKE THIS when it releases on August 12th! KISS ME LIKE THIS, the first book in the series, released last summer.

What is your favorite part of the writing/publishing process? My readers! They’re all so amazing and supportive and fun to hang out with on FB and twitter. I <3 them all!

Do your characters ever surprise you? My characters surprise me all the time! They not only make me laugh, but I’m constantly crying over my keyboard when they say and do something really beautiful. My husband always knows the book is going well when he walks by and sees tears running down my cheeks.

Do you sing in the shower? If so, what is your go-to song? I used to be a full-time musician, singing and playing piano and guitar all over the world. (Which is part of the reason I love writing about musicians so much!) But, strangely, I don’t really sing in the shower. My kids, on the other hand, are amazing shower singers!

What is your dream vacation? I really want to spend some time in New Zealand and Australia! I’d love to walk the Milford Track in New Zealand, which traverses the heart of New Zealand’s wild fiord country and has been called the “finest walk in the world.”

Sweet Reunion is FREE for a limited time!

For Amanda Jacobs, dealing with the pain of losing her beloved Dad is the toughest thing she’s ever gone through, and it comes with a lot of complications, as well – like taking over the family business, Mountain Ridge Outdoor Adventures. It makes her miss the simplicity of being a teenager, when she was surrounded by her amazing friends, The Fabulous Four, and she was madly in love with her Dad’s right hand man, Justin Barnes. His sexy smiles and deep brown eyes had made her heart race in a way she’s never felt before or since. When the Fabulous Four unexpectedly show up on her doorstep to support her through this complicated time, things seem to be looking up for Amanda. But that’s not the only surprise visit in store for her…

Justin Barnes left Hope Falls ten years ago, in the dead of night, and didn’t think he’d ever set foot there again. That was just fine with him, except for one little complication: Amanda Jacobs. He had fallen in love with her unruly blonde curls and sparkling sapphire eyes, but she had been a teenager then, five years younger than he – too young for him to act on his attraction. Still, he’d missed her every single day of those ten years. When Justin receives a phone call that his former mentor has passed away, he knows he has to return to Hope Falls. Justin just has one question – will the girl that once adored him have grown into a woman that can’t stand him? Or will she still be the only thing in the world that feels like home?
