Guest Author: Bella Andre featuring The Sullivans

Wednesday, October 19

In my opinion there's nothing better than family...whether it's the one you're born with, or the one you've made.  Maybe that's one of the reasons why I love romance series that revolve around families...because there's that intimacy already built into the relationships that give you the insight into the characters that is so important.

Author Bella Andre is my special guest today to share with us why the characters from her Sullivans family series would be a great inspiration to your Halloween costumes, and at the same time a bit about the second book from the series, From This Moment On.  Read and enjoy!

It’s October 19th. You know what that means. You only have less than two weeks to figure out your Halloween costume! If you’re anything like me, you’ve been procrastinating. Fortunately, there is a whole lot of inspiration in my new contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family.

The first two books in the series – THE LOOK OF LOVE and FROM THIS MOMENT ON - follow a family of six sexy brothers and two sassy sisters as they fall in love. They’re a big family who butt heads one minute and laugh with each other the next. While they have a lot in common – a love for family gatherings and good food – they’re also very different in temperament and career, and there’s more than enough costume ideas to go around.

CHASE – the sexy photographer in THE LOOK OF LOVE, Sullivans #1. Wear some dark jeans, a white button-up shirt untucked at the waist, and sling a fancy camera around your neck.

MARCUS – the winery owner in FROM THIS MOMENT ON, Sullivans #2, demands a crisp suit and a bottle of wine in your hand which is sure to make you a hit at any Halloween party.

GABE – the firefighter in my upcoming release CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE, Sullivans #3 (release date: November 22!) is a little trickier to pull off, but if you can find a red fire engine hat then feel free to imitate Gabe’s firehouse wear with some black snowboard pants to stand in for fire-retardant pants and a white t-shirt.

LORI – aka Naughty, is a hip hop instructor with the perfect costume for someone in need of a last minute fix. Find a pair of baggy pants, get a tight midriff-earing top and some hoop earrings.

ZACH – while he might own a hugely successful chain of mechanic shops, he still likes to get his hands dirty. Get a workman’s outfit, grease it up and walk around with a devil-may-care grin and a wrench.

SMITH –is a movie star and nothing says movie star more than dark sunglasses and windblown hair. Maybe get a friend to dress up as paparazzi and follow you around taking photos!

RYAN –is my baseball player so a baseball cap, your favorite team sport tee and a toy baseball bat will tie the look together.

SOPHIE (I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU, Sullivans #4 – coming Feburary 2012)– aka Nice, is a hard-working librarian so I recommend a cute skirt, a prim button-up top and some sexy glasses, even if you don’t have a prescription. Tuck your favorite book under your arm and you’re set.

I hope that helps you inspire you to pull your costume together, and Happy Halloween!

For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name - Nico - for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is...or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger - and the sinful promises - in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.

One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. And even though they both try to fight it, growing emotions - and sizzling attraction - keep drawing them closer together.

Close enough for them to wonder if stealing one more secret moment together can ever be enough?

Congratulations Bella on your Sullivans series!  I've not had the pleasure of reading the first two book yet, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.  I love series revolving around a family so this one is right up my alley, especially when you take into account that it's a sexy contemporary romance written by Bella Andre :)

If you'd like to learn more about Bella Andre and the books she writes you can find her on her website, on Facebook, and Twitter.  One of my favorite extras on her website are the Alpha Male Puzzles ;)  Puzzles + Hot Cover = A Muse worthy activity!

I need to stop coming by--really, I do. :D Why? Every time I stop by, I end up leaving with a new group of books to add to my ever-growing "want to read" list. The poor thing is going to just explode one of these days if I keep abusing it like this! LOL.

Wonderful post, I look forward to reading your books, Bella, as I haven't had the pleasure yet. They sound very interesting, and I too enjoy series that revolve around a family; that way, when one book ends, you know you'll still see those characters again, to one extent or another, in future books. :D

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
