Dear Reader,

Squeeeee!!!! Today's the day—you finally get to head back to Fool's Gold. Best of My Love is available now. I adore this book. Beneath his bad-boy behavior, Aidan Mitchell is a great guy. He's adventurous, athletic, and he has a strong protective streak. He can't say no to a vulnerable woman who needs his help.

SOMEONE LIKE YOU (excerpt) (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: Jill Strathern left town for the big city and never looked back—until she returned home years later to run a small law practice. It turns out her childhood crush, Mac Kendrick, a burned-out LAPD cop, has also come back to sleepy Los Lobos. Even though Mac rejected her back in high school, Jill can't deny the attraction she still feels for him. Now Jill and Mac are tangled in enough drama to satisfy the most jaded L.A. denizens—Mafia dons, social workers, angry exes and one very quirky eight-year-old make even the simplest romance complicated. And it all goes to prove that when it comes to affairs of the heart, there's no place like home. An unlikely pair…but a perfect match.

When a book includes a book club discussion guide, when do you prefer to read the questions in it?

After I finish the book. Reading the questions in advance would ruin the reading experience for me because the questions would give me clues about the story.

Never. I don't find book club discussion guides interesting or helpful.

Depends on the type of book.

“Being left at the altar was not for sissies. Aside from the humiliation and hurt, there were actual logistics to worry about. Odds were if a guy was willing to leave you standing alone in front of three hundred of your closest friends and relatives, not to mention both your mothers, he wasn't going to sweat the little stuff like returning the gifts and paying the caterer.”
