Romance Junkies Gives A Lick and A Promise 4 Blue Ribbons!

He's an alien strung out on Earth's atmosphere, and she’s a woman obsessed with a lover she meets only in her dreams. When Mark and Dove cross paths, it’s nothing short of disastrous, yet they're drawn together in way that neither of them can explain.

Dove Hansen can't understand the pull she feels for a recovering addict, and she begins to question her taste in men. It's blatantly obvious to her that her dream lover is the safest date she is gonna find. She wants to walk away and not be attracted to Mark, but it seems her body and her heart have other plans entirely.

Mark Arianos is far from the junkie Dove thinks him to be. In reality, he's an alien and the Earth's atmosphere is more then he can take. As he slowly becomes accustomed to his new surroundings, he finds that his plans are being waylaid by his feelings for Dove. He knows that he can't act on his desires in reality, but in her dreams he can be the lover she needs. Making a move for her out in the open could threaten his mission and expose him to his enemies.

As these two strong-willed people clash and deny their unrequited longings, their lives become more and more entwined. Can and alien and earthling come together and find happiness, or will secrets and deceptions derail them before they even get a chance?

A LICK AND A PROMISE is full of hot steamy interludes that will fog your glasses and sidesplitting humor that will leave you in stitches. As Mark and Dove valiantly fight their attraction and weave there way through a plot line riddled with subterfuge, you can't help but love them.

Each character in this story brings something special with them that makes it so much more than just a romance with a HEA. From Dove's aunts to Michael, her five-year-old charge, we meet people who clearly make Dove the lovable character I found her to be.

Ms. Hardin's humor and voice are strong and clear throughout the pages of A LICK AND A PROMISE, making it an all-around great read. She's penned a story that is so well-balanced and witty that I wished it never ended. If you want a book full of humor, romance and enough heat to set you ablaze, then look no further than A LICK AND A PROMISE.

I went back and re-read "Miss Behavior" and "Out Of This World" the other night. I had to get my Arnie fix. I still love OOTW the best of all of your books. Not that I don't like the other ones but Arnie and Ava still are #1!

See, Bev? That's why I lurrrrv you. Arnie is my main man 4evah, and while I might flirt with other heroes, I'll always come back to him.

I'll never forget when I first typed his name in Miss B -- out there on the "skating rink" during the "brontosaurus hoedown". Nor will I ever forget the first time he "suggested" something. LOL. He's just a magic man and it's so nice to have you feeling the same way about him.
