Blogiversay Day #7 with Gina Gordon & Giveaway

It's the last day celebrating Cecile's Blogiversary. And we have Gina Gordon here closing out the event.

Please give Gina a warm smutty welcome :)

How I met Smutty Hussy Cecile

Picture it—I was a brand new author. So green that I could even give Kermit the Frog a run for his money. I was nervous, overwhelmed, and wanted desperately for readers to like my work.

And then one day, out of the blue, this super-excited girl name Cecile e-mailed me, going on and on (really, it was a rant J) about how much she loved my work. I read it again. Then again. Each time shaking my head. Who was this insane woman? She had to be wrong. Is there another Gina Gordon out there?  Why the hell was she e-mailing me?
Elaine: **jumps up and down waving hands in the air** Me too, me too...I read it along with Cecile. She told me she was going to email you. I encouraged her to tell you how much she loved the book, but not the crazy ranting insane part, that's all on her **innocent face** ;)

But she was right, and I will be forever grateful that she took the time to give this author a sign. That was the day I realized that maybe, someday, this career might work out for me. That was also the day I made a true friend.

Cecile is sweet, generous, supportive, and despite the fact that we lives thousands of miles from each other, if I need her, I know she’s only a Facetime away. And don’t even get me started on that Louisiana drawl. I was confused as hell the day she told me she was going to send me some pecorn pie. Oh, pecan. And she thinks I talk funny? J
So, thank you Cecile, my beloved Smutty Hussy, for lending your ear and offering your friendship. My journey through this daunting world of romance writing would not have been the same without you.

A Taste of Trouble

When Liv Crawford decided to pursue her dream of owning her own bakery, it was no surprise that she forgot to add “maintaining a serious relationship” to her business plan. Not when she believes a cupcake can fix anything, even loneliness.
Jake Miller isn’t concerned about being lonely. He’s cast aside his playboy lifestyle to pursue something more meaningful, his passion for photography. So, when his boss asks him to pursue a beautiful woman and coerce her to his office for a disguised meeting—no matter what it takes—in exchange for the opportunity to turn his hobby into a career, he jumps at the chance. At first sight, Liv awakens his long-buried desire for commitment, but his secret mission could ruin his hopes of keeping her.
Despite Liv’s commitment to swear off relationships to run her bakery, Jake quickly becomes her number one distraction. Yet, even her misgivings can’t tame the heat as they straddle the line between love and ambition.

When her dream of becoming a mafia princess didn’t pan out, Gina Gordon went after her second dream…becoming a writer. And she hasn’t looked back.

Gina, a self-proclaimed happily ever after junkie and cupcake connoisseuse, loves spinning contemporary tales of knee bending first kisses, unconditional love and super-hot sex. She broke out onto the romance scene with her #1 Amazon Bestselling erotic short story Her Five Favorite Words that’s been called a “deliciously naughty tale” by Joyfully Reviewed.

When not chained to her computer, you can find Gina sipping Starbucks, making cupcakes or feeding her addiction to celebrity gossip. She lives in Milton, Ontario with her husband and lovable dog.
