I’ll post the pitches that made it through in the morning, and of course, the winners in our giveaway!
Thanks for coming today everyone!
Welcome, welcome, welcome!
I’ll post the word go around 10:00am EST May 18th. I have to go into work today, so I’ll try to stay on top of the day as best I can without getting fired! Actually, I have a pretty cool boss. 🙂
As always, please read the rules carefully under the A/E Tab above. I really don’t like deleting pitches. Every single pitch I receive is a potential Best Seller, and I can’t tell you how exciting it is for us at Musetracks to hear that one of our pitch shops connected an author with an agent or editor. (We’ve had a sale success story recently. I promise to share as soon as I’m allowed.)
Please welcome one of Becky’s authors, Jeannie Moon!
She’s here with her novel, THE TEMPORARY WIFE.
Check out this cover…
It releases on May 21st.
Here’s the blurb:
It was an offer she couldn’t refuse…from a
man she couldn’t resist.
Kindergarten teacher Megan Rossi is devoted to being a mother to her best friend’s five-year-old daughter, Molly. When the
child was orphaned, Meg became the little girl’s legally named guardian—over the objections of Molly’s wealthy grandparents, the Campbells. Now the Campbells are petitioning for custody, and Meg is faced with a long and expensive legal battle. The last thing she expects is for her former high school boyfriend—and the Campbells’ estranged son—to offer a solution: marriage.
Billionaire software developer Jason Campbell knows his parents don’t have Molly’s best interests at heart—it’s all about control for them. There is one way he can ensure that his sister’s last wishes are honored. He will offer Meg the protection of his name and lawyers
until the custody arrangement has been finalized , then he’ll secure his niece’s future with a very generous divorce settlement. Jason’s considered all the scenarios, except one—that the sparks that once flew between he and Meg might reignite a burning passion. And that his confirmed bachelor heart might just melt away from the heat…
Here’s what readers are saying:
“Jeannie Moon writes a sweet, sexy escape.”
~New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis
“Debut author Jeannie Moon immerses readers
in an emotionally engaging and sexy story of lost love and new beginnings.”
York Times bestselling
author JoAnn Ross
“A truly sweet romance between two people offered a
second chance at true love. Not to be missed!” ~Jane Porter, national
A must read for any self-respecting TBR pile. 🙂

On a personal note, I’m going to be a Grammy! (At least my four children waited until I hit forty – which I did this year!) And we just found out, she’s a girl!
We surprised my daughter by showing up at her high school, she’s a senior btw, and shocking her with the news that her niece was a niece, this was her reaction when her big brother told her that her niece would have her name as a middle name…
In October, we’ll welcome Adele Kassidi Demmons into our family. The proud Auntie Kassidi couldn’t control the tears… 🙂 Life just gets better and better.
