Tara Bond, previously known as Tara Hyland for the very enjoyable DAUGHTERS OF FORTUNE and FALLEN ANGELS, will have a new novel out this July 30th from UK Simon & Schuster (already available in eBook). BEAUTIFUL LIAR is its name and will center around a down-on-her-luck but feisty employee of a renowned family who has a lot on her plate, like resisting the advances of a hot but reckless rich man’s son. Here’s the novel’s description:
“Responsible Nina Baxter knows all about responsibility. With her father dead and her mother drowning her sorrows, it's up to Nina to take care of her younger sister, April, and try to hold the family together. But when her options run out, she is forced to take a job working for the wealthy Noble family. Reckless Alexander Noble is the rakish heir to an unimaginable fortune. Sexy, charming and entitled, he's never had to do a day's work in his life, and devotes himself to pleasure and partying. With a reputation for bedding a different woman every night, he doesn't appear to give a damn about anything. Rotten From their very first meeting, Nina knows Alex is bad news, and vows to stay away from him. But as their paths continue to cross, she can't help being drawn to his raffish charisma - especially when he makes no secret of his interest in her. For the first time in her life, Nina is on the brink of following her heart. But can she believe Alex when he tells her to trust him? Or is he just another beautiful liar?”
Oh how I can’t wait to get my hands on this title. And as if that wasn’t good book news enough, turns out the author has already another novel lined-up. Look for SWEET DECEPTION at the end of January 2016, again from S&S. The plot for this one is still top secret but what we know so far is it will feature a heroine on a path of self-destruction. I can already feel myself salivating over this bit. I know, it doesn’t take a lot to get my motor going but when it comes to solid escapist fiction Tara is a sure bet. Have yet to try her? Backlist, people, backlist.
Until next post—Martin
