Guest Post on The Marriage Gift

I’ve written seventy-five novels.  I’ve written half a dozen novellas.  I’ve never written a short story.  I wasn’t sure my particular talent would lend itself to the art form and was nervous as I set out to tackle the challenge.  And I loved the result!  The Marriage Gift is a lot shorter than any of my other work, but it’s classic ttq.  Emotionally compelling.  A little dark.  And ultimately joyful.

I’m particularly excited because The Marriage Gift is a prequel to a brand new Heartwarming Series I’m doing, starting with three books, that will debut this next year.  The series revolves around a cooking show called Family Secrets.  It’s a reality TV show and contestants compete with the secret family recipes.  Every book in the series revolves around family secrets, too.  In the prequel, short story, a hero keeps a family secret and it effects his entire life.  Check out The Marriage Gift!  It’s completely free!  A Heartwarming Thanksgiving gift from Harlequin and me.

Adult Contemporary Romance
July 1st 2015 by Harlequin Heartwarming

Theyíre a team…not a couple!

Falling for Liam was unthinkable. He and Gabi had been best friends since college, nothing more. And crucially, now Liam was her client and needed her to be focused on his case. Gabi could never risk their friendship ó or Liamís freedom ó over these feelings. They could never be a couple, anyway. He was Liam Connelly, the handsome and privileged son of a billionaire. She was Gabrielle Miller, the girl whoíd fought her way out of poverty and put herself through law school. They were unlikely friends to begin with. Anything more was impossible.

Anyone could be hiding a secret…

Marie Bustamante does not trust or love easily. Growing up with a philandering father and an overprotective mother, she comes by her reservations honestly. So after only three months, how can she be falling for her best friend’s bodyguard? This isn’t like her at all. But Elliott Tanner is strong, gorgeous and…trustworthy. Honest. At least he seems to be. Of course, some things about him remain a mystery. Protecting the privacy of his clients is Elliott’s job. That doesn’t mean he’s hiding anything from her. Does it?

    Oh, I love asking questions too! Tara, you’ve mentioned how you naturally write emotional angst and even when you try to write a lighter book, it changes… so, of all your books, which one is closest to a more light read, more humorous 🙂

  • Karen Rock

    What a great kickoff to your new HW series! I can’t wait to read the rest… cooking. family, secrets… check check check for me 🙂 I also loved your description of your writing, <> That’s my favorite kind of storytelling. Thanks as well for organizing this amazing HW odyssey for us! We are so fortunate to have you in our family. With over 75 novels under your belt (fingertips? hard drive?) we have a lot to learn from you <3

  • Carol Ross

    Tara, you definitely nail the deeper more complicated emotions in your stories. They always make me “feel” so much. And I love that. Amazing that you were able to do that in such a short story! Thank you ( :
