Recipe for Romance in the Desert

By Liz Fichera, author of Hooked 


* One moonless, windless evening.

* Two coyotes howling in the distance.

* A million stars.

* One deserted road, near the edges where the barbed wire meets miles of uninterrupted desert.

* Two sets of parents, unaware that their teens have sneaked out of the house.

* An iPod filled with tunes.

* Two warm root beers.

* The hood of a car.

* A shy but curious girl.

* A confused but love-struck boy.

* A smattering of soft words to break the ice.

* Trembling hands to reach for each other.

* Breath that mixes together.

* Two racing hearts.

* A Universe that cracks open.

* One first kiss.

The directions must be followed in order and cannot be repeated.  You never get another chance for another First Kiss.

I love it! That is pure perfection. Now if only this would happen to me…. icon wink HarlequinTEEN Reading into Romance: Hooked by Liz Fichera

Get hooked on a girl named Fred… HE said: Fred Oday is a girl? Why is a girl taking my best friends spot on the boy’s varsity golf team? SHE said: Can I seriously do this? Can I join the boys’ team? Everyone will hate me – especially Ryan Berenger. HE said: Coach expects me to partner with Fred on the green? That is crazy bad. Fred’s got to go – especially now that I can’t get her out of my head. So not happening. SHE said: Ryan can be nice, when he’s not being a jerk. Like the time he carried my golf bag. But the girl from the rez and the spoiled rich boy from the suburbs? So not happening. But there’s no denying that things are happening as the girl with the killer swing takes on the boy with the killer smile…


Hooked Book Trailer

Liz HarlequinTEEN Reading into Romance: Hooked by Liz FicheraAbout Liz Fichera   website | Blog|  Twitter | Goodreads

Liz is an American author living in the American Southwest by way of Chicago. Born and raised in Park Ridge, Illinois, she moved to Phoenix, Arizona, after college, never expecting to live more than one year among cactus and people who’d never seen snow. She was wrong. It certainly didn’t hurt that she met her future husband in Phoenix too. Most of her stories are set in the American Southwest because she thinks the desert is a cool place. Living in Phoenix, she’s surrounded by Native American culture and influences, not to mention intriguing Hohokam petroglyphs and centuries-old canals. There are over 20 tribes in Arizona and she’s lucky to be neighbors to the Gila River and the Salt River Indian Communities. When she’s not busy writing her next novel, she likes to travel, visit museums, support local theater productions, hike, and pretend that she’s training for a triathlon. She posts a lot of photos from her desert and mountain hikes on her Facebook and Twitter pages. In no particular order, she has been chased by javalinas, rattlesnakes, coyotes, and even one curious black bear. She would love to connect with you there too!

  2. NFL Football for me. Good stuff menard! Especially Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews! Great giveaway!

  3. Most definitely baseball. There’s just something about those boys : )

  4. I love baseball. I watch every game the Cardinals play. It’s my summer obsession. But right now is hockey season, and I love my Blues. Thank you for the giveaway.

  5. Gymnastics is my favorite sport to watch – although I prefer watching girls gymnastics. The guys are pretty hot though. I like watching snowboarding, although the guys are so covered up that it’s hard to marvel at them. How about swimming?
