Hot Heroes, smart, sassy heroines and just the right touch of mystery and suspense!

OMG! Thank you for all the love for my Tavonesi Series! Anybody new can still grab Fielder's Choice while it won't cost you anything and dive in. And I'm thrilled for the reviews of Until Love Finds You-- I love Evan Forbes, the handsome, brilliant billionaire whose challenges to love have touched so many of you.

Until Love Finds You (Tavonesi #10) by Pamela AaresUntil Love Finds You

And I love what Christine Feehan says about why romance matters: "Reading romance is the closest thing to magic outside of the love of family and friends. You turn the page and fall into a scene where the problems aren't your own. You know, through the promise of happily ever after, that things will always work out in a romance novel. And when they do, you remember there is always hope."

Pick a Tavonesi Hero or sassy heroine and sail away into spring! And thanks for being part of the Tavonesi world! You can find all of the books here: https://www.pamelaaares.com/available...
Best,

"A mind-blowing romance!"

THE NEW TAVONESI LOVE STORY IS OUT TODAY!

I can't wait for you to meet Evan Forbes, the sexy, smoldering hero of my latest Tavonesi Series book, UNTIL LOVE FINDS YOU!

He may have changed the way the world communicates with his innovative, high-tech businesses, but the language of the heart has brought nothing but pain.

When Evan meets the vivacious heiress Coco Tavonesi on a garden tour, she fires a spark of desire he can’t resist. Pretending to be an ordinary computer geek, he conceals his true identity and accepts the thirty-dollar an hour job she offers, tracking down a hacker who’s stolen her prized nature photographs. After years of hiding his famous name and his own incredible wealth behind a disguise, has he met the woman worth revealing himself to? Can he risk his heart?

New Release! NO STRANGER TO LOVE - "Hot, intriguing summer read!"

I loved writing NO STRANGER TO LOVE (Tavonesi Series, Journey to Love Trilogy, Book One)! Readers had been clamoring for Parker Tavonesi's story and this book was a real zinger to write! Parker is a favorite of Tavonesi fans -- he's a world class-polo player, sexy as all get-out and yet gets his hands in the soil as he works to create an award-winning vineyard. Not to mention his penchant for planning parties that are life-transforming. We've been to several of Parker's glittering events in previous books, but the party that heroine Juliet Cabot calls him to Greece to plan doesn't have the ending he'd imagined.

Parker and Juliet's love scenes scorched up the pages as I wrote and the sultry Greek Island setting added spice and flame to their fire.

25 Things About Life I Wish I Had Known 10 Years Ago

25 Things About Life I Wish I Had Known 10 Years Ago

I loved this list from from Darius Foroux, author of Massive Life Success and wanted to share it today with all of you. (and scroll down for news about a special sale on THROWN BY LOVE!

In Darius’s words: One thing that I like better than learning from my mistakes is to learn from other people’s mistakes. Over the years, I’ve been blessed to have great mentors, teachers, family, friends, that taught me about life.

What you will find below is a list of the most important things I learned from other people and books. Some of the lessons took me a long time to learn—but if I had to learn these things all by myself, it would take me a lot longer.”

Here are 25 of those reminders from Darius about life and learning. Which bit of wisdom resonates with you?

Struggle Is Good 
Never say “I can’t take it anymore.” Say “Bring it on!”

Don’t Complain
 Complaining is the biggest waste of time there is. Either do something about it, and if you can’t, shut up about it.

Spend Time With People You Love
 That’s your family and best friends. If you don’t have a family, create one. Most people in life are only visitors. Family is for life.

Don’t Start A Relationship If You’re Not In Love 
I’ve done this more than once. You kind of like someone and think: “We might as well give it a shot.” Not a good idea. You’re either in love, or you are not. Don’t fool yourself. It’s not fair to you and the other person.

Exercise Daily 
I didn’t get this until recently. A healthy body is where you have to start everything in life. If you can’t build a healthy and strong body, what CAN you build in life?

Keep A Journal
 No, keeping a journal is not for children. It helps you to become a better thinker and writer. “I don’t want to be a writer” you might think. Well, how many emails and texts do you send a day? Everybody is a writer.

Be Grateful 
Say ‘thank you’ to everyone and everything. “Thank you for this beautiful day.” “Thank you for your email.” “Thank you for being there for me.”

Don’t Care About What People Think
 We all die in the end, do you really think it matters what people think of you?

Take More Risks
 Don’t be such a wimp.

Pick An Industry, Not A Job 
If you want to become good at something, you need to spend years and years doing that. You can’t do that if you hop from industry to industry. Pick an industry you love and start at the bottom. You will find the perfect role for you eventually.

Lead The Way 
When you find yourself in a situation where everyone looks at each other, it’s time for you to lead. You‘re a leader when you decide to become one. There’s no initiation or a title. Just a decision.

Money Isn’t Important 
It really isn’t. But you have to train yourself not to care about money. Don’t become too dependent on the stuff you own — otherwise, the stuff will own you.

Be Nice 
I don’t mean you should be a pushover. You can be someone that doesn’t take shit and be nice about it. Just don’t insult people, think you’re better than them, or act like an idiot.

Learn Every Day
 You’ve got to train your brain to stay alert. You don’t have to read a book a day to learn every day. Learn from your mistakes. Learn from the people around you — be open to what they can teach you.

Rest Before You Are Tired
 Even if you love your job, and every day seems like a holiday, you need to take time to rest. You’re a human and not an android, never forget that.

Don’t Judge 
Just because people make different choices than you, they are not stupid. Also, you don’t know everything about people, so don’t judge them — help them.
Think About Others 
Just be mindful, that’s all. We all have families, bills to pay, and our own issues. Don’t always make everything about yourself.

Give Without Expecting Something In Return 
Don’t keep score. You will become a bitter person if you do that. Give solely for the joy of giving. If you get something in return, great, if you don’t, great.

There’s No End Game
 We, as a species, just are. Don’t try to figure it all out. Enjoy your journey.
Enjoy Small Things
 I like clichés because they are true. Especially this one. You know why? Everyone says they know it, but no one lives up to it. They just chase big things.

Don’t Take Yourself So Serious
Yeah, yeah, you’re an individual, and people have to take you seriously, I get it. But at the end of the day, we’re all a bunch of ants trying to chase the same things. Lighten up.

Don’t Blame People
 What’s the point? Do you want to punish them? You don’t do that to people. Also don’t blame yourself — you’re only human.

Create Something
 Not to leave a legacy, you won’t be here to see it anyway, but to be of use. Make music, write a book, build a table, anything. You’ll feel good about yourself, plus you give something back to people to use or enjoy.

Never Look Back Too Long
 Reflecting on the past is only good for one thing: Learning.
Take Action 
Don’t just sit there, do something. Without action, there is no outcome.

This week in my writing world, I have a special SALE on THROWN BY LOVE, Scotty and Chloe’s love story in the Tavonesi Series. For a few more days THROWN BY LOVE is available for $0.99 — so grab it while you can!

Spice up your holidays! A VERY DARING CHRISTMAS out today!

A Very Daring Christmas by Pamela AaresThe greatest dare is the one that leads to love…

From USA Today bestselling author Pamela Aares comes A VERY DARING CHRISTMAS, the eighth book in the Tavonesi family series featuring passion, mystery, and well-won love! Every book in the series can be read as a standalone.

When Cameron Kelly agreed to leverage her status as a Hollywood A-list movie star to help children in Dominia, nothing prepared her for the unthinkable poverty in the remote villages. Nor did she expect to run into a major league baseball star who frees all of her pent-up desires. The next man she lets anywhere close to her heart will be a normal guy, not a celebrity, and certainly not a cocky All Star. Yet when she sees the sexy athlete coaching the local kids in a makeshift sandlot, her heart and her body stop listening to her head.

Flying high after winning the World Series, Jake Ryder is in the Caribbean to rehab his season-sore body and coach village children who are crazy about baseball. Running into Cameron, though, may send him packing. The heat sparking between the two of them has him rethinking his Three-Date Rule, something he swore he'd never do. And when she tries to manipulate him into a publicity stunt to fund her UNICAN project, he decides it’s game over. He's been used too many times by women with an agenda. He won't be used again.

A surprise invitation to Trovare Castle throws them together once more. A mysterious prince and a fatherless boy complicate their already tense reunion, but they soon discover that the greatest dare is the one that leads to true love.

Curl up and lose yourself in the power of a dream...

LOVE IN THE VINEYARD is available now at all vendors! Here's an excerpt from Pamela Aares' newest release.

In LOVE IN THE VINEYARD, Adrian Tavonesi is creating a paradise on earth in Sonoma California. Convinced women only like him for his money and his status, he invents an anonymous relationship with the beautiful Natasha to create a dream world for both of them.
As passion flares into an all-consuming affair, will the lies Adrian and Natasha have told each other ruin everything? Or will betting on the truth this time lead to the perfect, ever-lasting love?

Excerpt, LOVE IN THE VINEYARD:

Natasha’s fears of giving over to the sensations jolting through her at Adrian's touch were stronger than her impulse to let go and enjoy the evening, the moment and the man. Her lucky night, he’d said. She didn’t want to think about luck. She’d had the dream again the previous night—always the same sequence of events, always the same words. It wasn’t right. Surely her mother wouldn’t mock her from the grave.
But the man’s firm leading caught her up, and soon she was twirling and dipping and dancing and laughing.
Until the music ended.
And Natasha snapped back into the room.
She stepped away from his hold. A rush of coolness swept between them as if someone had opened a door or a window, but there was neither in sight. He dipped his head toward hers and she panicked, thinking he was going to kiss her.
“One more?” he asked, smiling. “And then we should get something to drink.”
Relieved that all he wanted was a dance, she nodded.
But then the DJ cued a slow song, a song she’d never heard before. As his hand slipped to her back and down to her waist and he drew her close, her heart rumbled a beat far faster than the slow tempo of the lovely ballad.
He ran his other hand along her arm until his fingertips met hers. He twined his fingers in hers, then lifted their joined hands and rested them against his chest. Through the edge of her palm, she felt his heart beating, keeping time with hers, keeping a tempo that had nothing to do with the DJ or the party or the place. She tilted her head back and caught him smiling down at her as he swayed and drew her into the first slow steps of the dance. The music played not only around her but through her, melding with the beat of his heart against her palm and the feel of his other hand at her back, guiding her, meeting her, caressing her.
And she let go. Surrendered to the pulse of energy flowing in her. And danced with the mysterious man with the beguiling smile.
When the music stopped, she felt like a woman waking from a delicious dream. But within seconds her thoughts rushed in, calling her defenses back into place like sentinels that had waited at the ready, unhappy to have been dismissed for even the briefest of moments.
“Let’s get some air,” he said. “There’s a terrace just outside the back of this tent.”
Air. Yes, air would help her return to her senses.
He took two glasses of champagne from a passing waiter and handed one to her.
The night had turned cool, the perfect drop in temperature that would lead to this season’s best grapes. The fog hadn’t yet come in, but there was a distinct chill in the evening air.
He whisked off the black doublet he wore and wrapped it around her shoulders.
“Thank you,” she said, finding her voice.
Several couples were seated near heaters at small tables lit by candlelight. Their mingled voices and laughter rippled into Natasha. Had she ever really had fun? She couldn’t remember.
“The stars are especially bright tonight. No moon,” he said.
She looked up, but he wasn’t looking at the stars. He was looking at her.
“Tell me something about you,” he said softly.
“We’re not supposed to exchange information,” she answered.
“Only identifying information is off limits. Tell me about something you love.”
Under normal circumstances she would’ve said Tyler. She sorted through possible responses and found she wanted to answer. Wanted to share some part of her with this mysterious man. But not without a reciprocal exchange.
“If I do, then after, you tell me something. One thing that you love.”
“With pleasure.”
His accent perhaps explained his rather formal English. She liked the way he spoke, the way his words wound together in unusual patterns and his accent made the words stand out, familiar yet not familiar. For so many years she’d honed her ability to listen, to see, to use her senses to make up for her struggles with written words. She was reaping the reward for honing those senses tonight. With this man in this magical setting.
She hugged her elbows close to her chest. “I love plants, everything about them. Their beauty. Tenacity. Fragility. They speak my language.”
He raised a brow, barely visible above his black mask. “Then we have more in common than loving to dance.”
“I didn’t say I loved to dance,” she said, glad that it was dark and he couldn’t see the heat creep into her cheeks.
“You didn’t have to.”
If she’d known how intimate dancing with him would feel, would she have agreed to dance? Already she felt that she’d stepped into a world with signs and signals she couldn’t read. With sensations that tumbled her thoughts and teased at her carefully held boundaries. But perhaps she was like a prisoner kept too long in a dark cell. She longed for color. For song and dance and laughter. To surrender, if only for a moment.
If only there wouldn’t be consequences.
But there were. There always would be.
