Infamous - Contemporary Romance by Irene Preston

Socialite Meets Soccer Dad – $0.99 for a Limited Time

Socialite meets soccer dad….

Four years ago it was pure Hollywood – the windswept beach, the whirlwind romance, the run-away marriage. Unfortunately, the ride into the sunset didn’t survive the publication of the bride’s tell-all book two months after she said ‘I Do’.

Reclusive venture capitalist Morgan Riley isn’t interested in fame. He prefers a quiet life in the suburbs. For his daughter’s sake, he agrees to give his notorious wife another chance to be part of their family. Even though she’s back at home and fulfilling all his late-night fantasies, he can’t help wonder if she misses her high-profile lifestyle and famous friends.

Everyone knows Jessica Sinclair. She’s that girl on the cover of all the tabloids. As a Hollywood insider, Jessica has spent her life partying with A-list celebrities, shopping on Rodeo Drive, and living through scandal after scandal. When her estranged husband offers her a second chance at the ‘All American’ lifestyle she can’t pass up a shot at real happiness. Back in suburbia, Jessica spends her nights in sexy role-play hoping Morgan will overlook her deficiencies as a homemaker. She spends her days attending P.T.A. meetings, burning cookies, and asking herself ‘What would June Cleaver do?’ More to the point, what will Morgan do when she winds up back in the tabloids–with his teenage daughter right next to her?

Tall Order Release Day!

Send to Kindle

1 Very Tall Guy. 1 Broody Chef. 1 Very Small Car.

It’s release day for Dylan and Win and Izzie!

I absolutely loved writing this story for the Romancing Austin anthology and apparently readers loved my quirky South Austin guys, too. I’ve had so much positive feedback, I decided it was time to send Dylan, Win, and Izzie out into the world on their lonesome.

Here’s where you can find Tall Order:

Amazon  | ARe | Kobo | IBooks | B&N  

Book Cover: Tall Order by Irene Preston

Chef Dylan Trevino screwed up bad, and he knows it. When he left Texas, his job, and his boyfriend behind, Dylan was confident Aston would follow him to New York. Now he’s back home and working for the worst caterer in Austin just to pay the rent. Being head chef at a party thrown by a famous rocker doesn’t make up for serving bland tacos while dressed like a dime-store cowboy. Thank god his ex can’t see him now.

Aston Winkler’s steampunk guitar mods are all the rage with musicians and he’s got invites to every hot party in town. Too bad he’d rather be listening to garage bands than networking in a penthouse. From his 6’7″ vantage point, Aston has no problem spotting Dylan at the crowded SXSW party. Getting his boyfriend back? That’s a tall order.

Kelly Jensen: Sweetheart Scallops Recipe for Valentines

Send to Kindle

Happy Valentine’s Day weekend!  Kelly Jensen is here with a scallop recipe that is elegant enough for a Valentine’s Day meal and easy enough to make any time. I’m drooling a little right now and seriously considering having Bones make this recipe for our own Valentine’s Day. (I will assist by uncorking the wine!)

Don’t forget to check out Kelly’s new book, When Was the Last Time.

Enjoy!


 

Kelly Jensen's Sweetheart ScallopsKelly:

My husband and I have a Valentine’s tradition we cherish. We plan a menu, cook together, and we eat in the proper dining room instead of in the kitchen. Our menus vary. We both like to cook and we’re both adventurous eaters, so our planning usually begins with a theme: a style of cuisine, the food of a particular country or region, or an ingredient we’d both like to try. We’ve roasted, broiled and fried, made chocolate truffles, rolled up sushi, and learned how to poach fish. We’ve eaten a lot of good food—but sometimes the simplest recipes are the most memorable.

Sweetheart Scallops take about ten minutes to make. No kidding. Prep consists of chopping a shallot and a green onion, juicing a lemon and dropping a little flour into a dish. That’s it. Oh, and opening a bottle of white wine—a glass for you and half a cup for the sauce.

You can serve anything alongside these scallops. Their flavour is delicate, so keep that in mind. We usually go for a little linguini or polenta—both work well with the sauce—and a green vegetable. You could also soak up the sauce with some crusty bread. On to the recipe!

Tall Order Cover Reveal & Giveaway

Send to Kindle

Dylan and Win (and Izzie!) Get Their Own Cover!

(See the Official Tall Order cover reveal on ARe Cafe!)

Thank you to the fabulous Dar Albert who captured not only Dylan and Win, but Win’s beloved Izzie.  Dontcha just love it?

Those of you who read the Romancing Austin anthology last year will remember my super-tall hero, Win and his micro-car, Izzie.

With SXSW 2016 right around the corner, I thought it time to release Tall Order as a standalone.

(Erm – in case you missed it. This is the same Tall Order that appeared in the anthology – so get one or the other, but you don’t need both. Unless you particularly crave your own copy with Izzie on the front.)
